All About AndrewP
Even though SNK Playmore no-showed this year's E3 (which means that The King of Fighters XIII also no-showed this year's E3), judging from the videos that the company is putting onto its YouTube channel, things are looking up for the next game.
I'm not completely sold on the EX cancel system, which works for both "regular" special attacks and also for desperation moves. Some cancels seem a bit too abusive and much too damaging in the demonstration videos, and hopefully they'll be tweaked to at least have some kind of damage scaling on successive hits, but on the whole, what I've seen of the game so far (which is admittedly little outside of YouTube videos) looks a lot better than the unfinished mess KOF XII was. So I'm cautiously optimistic.
I'm also very impressed from what little I've seen of our old buddy Hwa Jai, who originally debuted as a computer opponent many years back and has never been a fully playable fighting game character until now. For those who say that he's clearly a ripoff of Super Street Fighter IV's Adon, I give you two counterpoints that aren't really counterpoints. One, actually, he's been a ripoff of Adon since 1991, when Hwa Jai first debuted in Fatal Fury for the Neo*Geo (while Adon debuted in 1987 in the first CPS1 arcade version of Street Fighter as a computer opponent). Two, another character like Adon? That's not a bad thing. That's a GOOD thing.
Matter of fact, Hwa Jai's default three-man team (the KOF series still groups characters into teams of three characters which you can mix and match...or not) consists of himself, Kim Kaphwan, and Raiden (also known as Big Bear). So this will probably be the first time I've played an unedited team on the regular in a KOF game in many, many years.
Again, don't let me down please, SNK Playmore. Thanks.
Apparently, the genre of tower defense games may no longer be called that, and all games with those words in their titles may have to change. The developer of the game "Tower Defense" is now attempting to trademark the title.
I'm going to say "ouch" for...well, the 80% of iPhone game developers that make tower defense-style games.
For those who missed it, the next Pokemon game, Pokemon Black & White, has been announced.
Could this mean my dream scenario for Pokemon will finally become reality?

Some people just don't have opinions. Like AndrewP.
AndrewP does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send AndrewP a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
