Both good picks.

I always wanted an update to Time Killers. It was the only fighting game where you could lose both of your arms and still possibly beat a guy by kicking and headbutting him to death.

Besides, it always more sense to me than Soul Calibur, which has huge bladed weapons that never draw blood or dismember anyone. It's like everyone in Soul Calibur is fighting with Nerf.

Ah, Akuma. Once he was introduced it was about the time I stopped playing fighting games in arcades, and Akuma is one reason why. I felt he was too cheap to play honorably and that was borne out by watching player after player get defeated by a mysterious "I Win" button combo that beat them to a pulp offscreen.

I used to have this awesome photoshop of Terry standing next to some geese in a park, with a great "GEESE!" caption, that I think maybe some Farker was reponsible for. Sadly it looks like I lost it at some point.

Agreed on all points, Bushido Blade also treated weapons with respect, it's a shame that such a model doesn't seem to score big. BTW I never reached Death in Time Killers, but damn did I ever have fun aiming for instakills with the chainsaw guy. The game was a lot of fun, though if my fuzzy memories of the game are right, it was more of a button masher than the controls of SFII and MK. I never really fooled with SNK games, I noted quickly that the AI was a cheating bastard. Basically I quit playing fighting games when they became all about the combos.

It was fun in Time Killers to have your guy win with headbutts after his limbs were severed, Monty Python Black Knight style.

Dead or Alive 3:  put the camera at a farked up angle for a single match just to make it that much harder to adjust.

No shiat. Boss Hazama/Terumi is far beyond broken, esp. with the instant flash kick and life-draining ring around him.

Also, list officially sucks without:

And I would also like to nominate, for a future edition (since we're talking classic fighting games), the pre-patch version of Bloody Marie from Skullgirls. An unflinching, advancing wall of hate, the fight against her ranges from annoying (as Peacock) to fiendishly hard (as Ms. Fortune).

It's the 'no flinching' that takes her from a difficult boss to cheap beyond frustration.

I don't mind difficult bosses who maybe have some unique moves, or are a bit quicker/stronger than normal fights. What I hate are bosses that significantly change the mechanics of fighting. No flinching for Bloody Marie, offscreen insta-kill from Akuma, DOA3 changing camera perspective.

A good boss design should make you feel like all the previous fights were training to prepare for one last encounter, not some game-breaking character that has to use cheap gimmicks to amp up the difficulty.

As ill as he was at the time, he still acted the hell out of that movie. He certainly didn't phone it in. Even though the rest of the movie was terrible (JCVD as all-American Guile?  Really?), his performance makes the movie actually fun.

You could score an instant decapitation with Mantazz if you timed his flying blade move right.

Seconded. It's like the ultimate troll:take a playable character and crank her stats to beyond ludicrous.

Ok, now I'm thinking, there are a lot of SNK guys on this list, they better have a boss from the last blade series.

No last blade characters? What a waste...

Because it's Raul GOD DAMN Julia. Any man who can knock the hell out of Curse of the Spider Woman (That was his, right?) AND The Addams Family, AS WELL AS Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, is all right in my book.

You need a bigger fleet. I rolled with the max number of doom stars the game allowed on the screen.
Alternatively, equip your ships with the phased cloaking device and the time warp things, and you can uncloak, fire your weapons, and cloak agin in the same turn. Basically, you're invincible.

The end of a large number of my matches:
"Yeah!  I finally won!"
"What do you mean it wasn't an honorable kill?  Not my fault the guy chose that moment to turn around!"

Still a fun game. I wouldn't mind seeing a new version of it.
