I don't see myself supporting SNK on another KOF unless they make a complete game. It saddens me deeply to see and know that KOF XII had the potential to be better than both BB and SF4. And whats really is making me vex is that they are not even supporting the thing. I am sure if they took the resourses use for this new 3D shamsho (which will fail) and their "next big thing" (
Art of Fighting 4
), they could have had a complete version of KOF XII and release it around the same time as SSF4. And althought the netcode was improved it(thank God)...its still half assed at best (never played a match with green bars yet against local friends), why stop there? A complete roster, complete movelist for everyone (not just gay Ash), more stages, a frickin story, teams, bosses, the ablity to tech a throw (seriously...who's idea was it to move this from KOF?), taunts, four different winning poses, unique character entrences, colour edit, visually different SDM (i.e super immediately after a CC)...and last but not least (actually this is a must) Netcode
. Not just a good netcode, but GGPO or better (the best that exist for 2D gaming). Its like the devs in SNKP has been stuck on stupid for quite some time now. Hell with an awesome netcode inhouse just releasing their old games via XLA and PSN would net them easy cash, and not sully the great titles that they have out now (only on XLA) that suck hairy ape nuts with lag. Anyways...I more or less needed to vent, as its very frustrating to see something you love turn to shit when its more than capable of being the best.
