KOF94 is arcade perfect and the most wonderful KOF experience I’ve had in years, and best times online ever as well, and that was just the first night! Of course depending how you search, you could have trouble finding people or running into people with low PING, but if people make an effort to:
- meet more players online
- add the ones with no match breaking lag sessions to the friends list,
- create your own network of good connection players to play with through your PSN, and share their PSNs with each other to broaden their resources for a good connection online community as well.
If more people did this, they would spend more time playing with lag free or near perfect lag free matches, instead of ranting here and missing out on a really playable and great online experience! :party:
It’s unclear how many will buy KOF94, but I’m sure if people keep each other on the record, they will have more and more people to play with online, with lagless matches!
Ya I bought KOF99 (PS1) because it was the only KOF on PS3 at the time, lol. but ya KOF94 is the best KOF on PS3 and it is the first KOF, and even now I find it more fun and exciting than the latest KOF games, but it depends on your taste.
I really would like them to release 95, 96, 97, 98. If they release them in that order, even better! You could get a better idea how the series changed over time, and each one is great in its own way!
I’ll have to see how the KOF94 ps3 online scene evolves, but this is an important time to meet people online and network with people so they have more people that potentially have good connections to play with, so people don’t just give up and don’t play online anymore. Just like at the arcades, people have to socialize and network to have some good community happening.
PS3 has a nice text chat people can stream in the background, so that’s one of the useful tools to get more people to meet and test each others connections so they can add the ones that have great online match sessions with!
so yes, online experiences may vary. But if you just start getting into KOF, it’s quite ironic that you have a chance now to try KOF94 on PS3, the first of the series and really still holds up as one of the most fun fighting games with lots to offer.
Just letting you know there is no Team Edit, and if you want blood, choose Japan region. KOF95 was the first that introduced team edit. But KOF94 is still great, you can still choose the Order of your team, and there are is a decent amount of teams to choose from.
If you are still unsure, just wait for players to post PS3 KOF94 matches on youtube.
