I actually got back into Weaponlord and am now playing against my cousin in socal (I’m in norcal) using the genesis emulator w/ netplay. The emulator is called Fusion btw.
I’ve yet to find anything broken in Weaponlord becuase I didn’t really know how to play this game when I was a kid and I bet most of you didn’t, either. I’ve only been playing for a week and half. All I can say is this game really kicks ass. It was so ahead of its time with Thrust Blocking (parry), Guard Drop (guard break), Weapon Clashing, etc. The motions, were a little confusing at first, but, honestly, it gets easier with practice.
I’ve been using Bane because he’s quick on close range attacks, which makes up for his size, has an unbreakable weapon, almost all his moves cause stun (I think), and there might be other stuff that I’ve yet to experiment with. So if anyone who remembers this game or still play it just for fun, feel free to post up any strategy, character matchups, combos, or just any memories you have about this game. Thanks.
