KOF MI 3, A2 cancelled [also, on Falcoon's firing ]

FrankfurtFrankfurt Joined: Posts: 573
This week's Famitsu list's KOF Maximum Impact 3 and Regulation A 2 (as well as Iroha's DS game - nooo) as cancelled.

Oh well, the best things about MI were Falcoon?s ideas, so? no surprise there. The funny thing is - Falcoon delivered exactly what SNK asked of him. Console games for casual players, with a lot of flash, packed with content. Seriously, i know people that to this day haven?t unlocked all the outfits and secret characters in MI2. That?s a game filled to the brim with extras and replay value. It?s easy to play, there?s a lot of feedback for minimal input? it?s exactly what the average guy expects of a console fighter.

But what does Falcoon get in return? A buncha fanboys whining about his alternate, optional outfits, making fun of his artwork (which is not even in the game) and the fact he?s overweight. The result? He?s fired and the series is cancelled. The irony being that Falcoon was hired because the fans demanded it. He was a fan artist that got famous.

Seriously, it makes you feel ashamed of being a fan of this genre. I hope you?ve enjoyed KOF XII, whiners!

    That's because Survival Mode was total fucking horse shit.
    An hour and a half to get to like Level 180 and then the CPU starts reading your inputs and sabaki countering at will.
    Everybody responsible for that mode deserves to get raped by a gorilla with AIDS.


    And major LOL @ Falcoon white-knighting.
    The guy didn't get fired. His bosses were actually pleased with his work despite his major fuckups.
    He QUIT because he was too emo to take criticism from fans. What a bitch.

    It's funny and ironic you aim criticism at fanboys: you're a huge fanboy too, Frankfurt.

    As somebody who likes MI a lot. Some of the outfits he made were pretty wack. I'd rather have george clooney faces on everybody. About 90% of the time, fans don't really know better. So having a fan making designs for the game in any aspect turns out usually to be a bad idea.

    shit son, every MI game was a huge improvement on the last with MIRA being actually really legit.


    It's a shame that we won't get to see where the series could've gone. =\


    however, i could care less about falcoon's directing/ideas in general.

    :tdown: No words can discribe how much FAIL SNKfailmore has shown by pulling this shit (but then again this was kinda expected considering how much they spent on KOFXII which flopped). Instead, I'll just respond with this:

    Well they can at least just port the charcters from MI over to the main KOF canon, and it saves money for them to focus exclusivly on KOF.

    Oh yea, because the main KOF canon did a real good job with Ash when compared with Duke, Luise, and Alba.

    (Soiree was a bit much with chaps, open vest AND a cowboy hat...but one of his moves was to surf on a bitch. That's fucking rad no matter how you slice it.)

    alba's default outfit and style was pretty stupid (LEATHERRRRRRRRR/10) but i really liked his moves and voice

    it would be cool to see it translated into 2D

    I thought the MI series sold decently well? If so, this actually doesn't make any sense.

    Yea, as far as I understood, KOF2006 was one of their best selling KOF games ever (maybe it was just MI, not sure).

    All the same, in fairness, absolutely NOTHING snkp does right now makes any sense.

    Didn't like many of the MI series designs but there were some nice characters such as the new characters like Nagase, Chae Lim and Ninon, along with bringing back guys like Seth, Hanzo and Mr. Karate (Ryo). And the game did improve as the series went along but I am not going to miss it that much.

    Especially after they blew the last 3D Samurai Shodown.
