Hi! We are in the final stages of the SRK forum migration. Soon, we will lock the forums so we can transfer over all the discussion threads. Please expect a downtime of a few days while we implement the migration. Thx for your patience.
1996 Xband Fighting Game Top 5 Lists - Scans from Tips & Tricks Magazine
Here's a shot of fighting game nostalgia all the way from 1996. Tips & Tricks magazine would print that month's top Xband players for both the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo Xband Video Game Networks.
Genesis Games = SSF II, MK II, and Primal Rage
SNES Games = SSF II, MK II, and KI
WeaponLord was also playable on the SNES Xband, but I don't think it ever showed up in the printed rankings.
I know there are a lot of former Xband users here, so I figured I'd post these up in case they were interested in seeing them. Special thanks go to Tips & Tricks editor Chris Bieniek for scanning all of these. For those of you who don't know what Xband is, search that term on YouTube or Wikipedia for more information
