King of Fighters 2002 Unlimited Match

KOF2002UM was released 2/27/2015 for PC! I myself have put many hours of vanilla kof 2002 in on GGPO, so this is definitely one of my favorite games. However, can I really recommend the steam release of KOF 2002 Unlimited match?

The King of Fighters 2002 “Unlimited Match” sports a whopping 66 playable characters, although a few are clones with different move sets. The cast has diverse move sets and play styles, so you should be able to find characters that fit your style, be that rush-down, turtle, mix-up, or zoning. If you’re not familiar with king of fighters 2002, it uses the 3 vs 3 team format, with some life regen between rounds. It’s a 4 button fighter, some characters dash, and most characters run.

Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code (MBAACC)

Let me start by saying, this is one of my all time favorite fighting games.
Melty blood has been around on the PC for a long time, but this article is specifically about the last edition to be released.Melty Blood Actress Again Current Code, or MBAACC features a character cast of 30 characters, with 3 styles referred to as moons on every single one of them. Giving you a total of 90 different play styles and tools to start your own style of play from. Not to mention there is a crap ton of color palettes to choose from for each character.

Regardless of which moon you pick, you get air dash(forward or back), hyper jumps, or a double jump if you don’t air dash. A counter hit in the air, means you can not tech until you hit the floor. This means air footsies are VERY important, which I love. The game also has decent net-play, not the best but it’s perfectly playable.
The moons have a general style for them, but this formula is not true for everyone.

Destruction Desire

I’m not sure who developed this doujin title, however it’s pretty good. Destruction Desire plays a bit like a cross between Guilty Gear and Arcana Heart. It’s 4 button game with a “homing” style D button used for canceling moves similar to a “roman cancel” or a “one more time burst” from persona. It doesn’t really home in on anything just cancels your move with movement. Continue reading “Destruction Desire” »
