A couple of week's back, Maximilian's YoVideogames channel on Twitch was streaming Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown. The two things that struck me were the number of people who were watching live (over 4K), and the glowing praise Maximilian had for VF in general, and it's not often VF5FS gets that kind of exposure! So if you don't mind watching a some guys rumble their way through VF5FS while having a blast, then check out the Youtube archive below. It might even remind you of your first time playing?
This thread is dedicated to those who play a musical instrument, and would like to share their own renditions of various tunes from the Virtua FIghter universe. I play a little of basic piano, and I thought it would be cool to perform one of my favorite tracks of all time. Enjoy!
Remember my moments compilation videos? Good old days, but today I've come up with something else for you guys! Here it is, the ancient history of our favourite polygonal button smashing simulator! It won't be a casual look at it though, I will try to analyze a mechanical growth of the series and compare it to whatever the other 3D fighting games have come up through all this time. Also there is something special I'm preparing towards the end of the series, so stay tuned!
The time has come again for Virtua Fighter Relationship's (VFR) Beat-Tribe Cup, the biggest Virtua Fighter event of the year! While 2013 was the 20th anniversary of the Virtua Fighter game series, 2014 is the 20-year milestone for VFR, organized by Isamu Yamagishi. Last year, Sega awarded Yamagashi with the title "実況" (Jikkyou, roughly translated as "Live Broadcaster") for his contribution to the VF scene. Players will compete for the 15th Beat-Tribe Cup on November 23rd 2014. Read on for additional information and check the post in the coming days for more information on the "miracle festival"!
To commemorate the 20 years of Virtua Fighter, Sega has started a new website - http://vf20th.sega.jp/ From the first blog post of the site (rough translation) - "20 years have passed since the release of Virtua Fighter. Thank you very much to our fans." This special site will be sequentially updated to celebrate this milestone, looking back at every step of the path to present day. From AM2's website and Famitsu's article, the anniversary site will subsequently give a glimpse to the development of the games in the series along with tournament history, something for both new and old fans.
