I think SNK makes the coolest fighting game characters.
Who are your favorites?
Kula is mai waifu but I just don't know how to git gud with her
Maxima is pretty fun to play too. But I always crack against better players who knows how to effective mix up as K'
I love Kyo's outfit but I don't like how he can't cancel his low attack into specials like he did in XIII
He's a fanboy who learned how to fight by just watching his idol fight
Goddamn, even if those criticals were just pure show, i love them
I want him back in KOF XIV
>that proximity unblockable
>that BODY AMAIZE with negative recovery frame that you can cancel from with lows
>that SHINGO KIIIICKU
Shingo is so fun to play since Kyo feels gimped going from XIII to earlier titles.
I love SNK. I'm a big fan of KoF, Samsho, and Last Blade. I just wish they knew how to do competent netcoding. IMO they will always be niche games in the US, but the netcoding is what truly prevents them from having any real online following.
KoFXII was easily some of the worst netcoding I had ever seen in a game before. Trying to do clan battles turned it literally into a slideshow. A three minute match could last half an hour.
They improved a bit with XIII, but still have a ways to go. The lack of lobbies and decent netcoding just really suck.
I know a lot of people are upset that the next fighter from them will probably be in 3D, but honestly I never really thought of SNK for their sprites. They're sprites are fun, but extremely dated for the time. KoFXII and XIII are beautiful, but even I can tell they're inefficient and KoF lacks the raving tumblr drones to pay them to make characters like with Skullgirls.
Plus SNK characters often times have different moves and designs from game to game. It makes way more sense to just use 3D models. If they could do Xrd-like visuals and start pumping out games often again that'd be the best case scenario. I really want to see them make a new samuria game.
King always has been and always will be my favorite.
Too many good characters to just pick just a few but from the guys Terrry and from the girls i'll say Mary and Jenet since we're talking about terry.
When will he give any of those girls the dick?
I finally got into KOFXIII and goddamn that game is oozing with so much class and fun. And the sprite works are obviously done by a wizard.
There's not a single dud in the entire female SNK lineup.
Only girl I don't really like is Vice.
Athena is the best, always loved her attacks, especially CvS2
Rock is a damn close second to me.
Aw, yeah. She's an even more fun to play Fuerte way before Fuerte's time.
I honestly wish I knew people who played SNK games. It's hard being a fan of niche fighters especially when I think they are even better than the popular ones.
Rock was one of the first characters I learned in CvS2. Growing up I always thought his win animation where he forms wings around the star on his jacket was extremely neat. Got me to play Garou.
These: >>285664094 >>285664378
But also the eventual poster boys of KOF, Kyo and Iori. And Terry. They're my usual go-tos.
Let's not also forget about Team CYS/New Faces '97.
Shermie a Cute.
Outside of KOF I think Hibiki from Last Blade is awesome, so is Kaede/Moriya/Setsuna.
These motherfucking legs, holy shit SNK, why didn't you do this sooner
Am I the only who wish this nigga become a mainstay in KOF?
Personally I hate Bao. For dumb reasons like
always dominating the later entries of Yuri and Friends, along with Kensou and Chris. I guess Saigado loves him his /ss/
I'm gonna be that guy and pick the Kizuna Encounter girl.
Hey now, Rosa ain't bad. Neither is Kizuna Encounter (it's pretty fucking fun, although King Leo and Jyazu are broken as fuck)
Which one is your favorite out of all Athena's designs?
98, 2002, 2003. Probably 2003 because floofy skirt.
For her short haired years, 2000.
I do remember playing Kizuna Encounter at least once a long time ago I thought it was fun.
Eh, not big loss, we got a better woman.
Never really got to use Rosa though. I just ran with Kim and Gozu.
Also I liked being able to use King Leo to steamroll through the game. Holy fuck he's strong as heck.
Speed or Power mode though? I think I like her on Speed mode better.
Im not the only one right /v/
>kasumi and momoko need to come back
They'll come back.
Not Mature, maybe Vice.
Yeah. I like Vice over Mature. Those Shoulder Tackles and powerbombs are amazing.
I want to start a dojo with Hibiki.
And by dojo I mean have a family.
SNK recently announced a new Garou.
Also, there is that rumor and they were hiring for people who know their shit about Next Gen gaming but after that, nothing.
C. Viper is SNK through and through. Rose is the real Jojo
He's "inspired" by Iori. Also note that he's an effeminate French dude who does flash kicks and sonic booms. Then cut to 2003, and check the new main character of KoF
>SNK characters thread
>Pretty much nothing but waifushit
>Nobody posting KoFXI GOAT
>Not appreciating SNK Baki
That is partly joke, i didn't complete the sentence (should have been a new Garou Port for mobiles.
You can emulate it in MAME now although at its current state it's amazingly shitty emulation. But playable.
I play Rob Python more in that game though. But SNK Baki's (or Kazushi Sakuraba if you will) always awesome.
Kula is a top cutie. Hibiki comes second.
There's a shitty rumor of the KOFXIV roster that is like 50 characters and plenty of chinks in it, as if to suggest that Tencent is in charge of development of it. I hope it's just a rumor though, because the roster is shit.
Mina Majikina is the best. SamSho revival when? SS5SP is the best fighting game ever made.
I wouldn't say it's the best but it's one of the GOATs in the later SNKP era.
Also, the matches are intense as hell.
Mina is amazing though. I like her a lot.
you will never repopulate Mina's ded village with her
>you will never
murder the shit out of that annoying creature with her
She's tempting me by staying on all fours.
>Make a thread about KoF games
>Dies in 20 minutes
>Make a thread about characters
>Waifufags in full swing
Christ, can /v/ have one fighting game-related thread without turning it into a fucking "lewd" wankfest
Secret main character, clearly hiding his powerlevel. Watches Kyo do all his moves once, writes it down, is now a martial artist. Enters KoF97 ON HIS OWN to challenge teams of three because he doesn't give a fuck and will critical hit you to death
Luchador who gets asked to join a team of secret agents, does he attempt to adjust his fighting style for undercover spy work? Does he fuck, just DDTs people all day. Taking niggas down the Tiger Road and hitting every bump
Punches fuck out of you
Punches fuck out of you
Punches fuck out of you with explosions
Based Sambo, all those armlocks and shit are cool
Basically just Grappler Baki, I also respect that in a game series where people have fire, ice, lightning powers etc he doesn't have any of that shit and just hits you really hard and puts you in armbars
Awesome Muay Thai stance and animations, great moveset, hot blooded, arrogant as fuck. Perfect
Imagine if Mizuki walked into your elementary school classroom one morning and announced she was going to be your substitute for the day and then proceeded to rake her 2 foot long nails from one end of the chalkboard down to the other.
