WatchMojo recently published a Virtua Fighter vs Tekken comparison video. It compares both series in the categories of story, characters, legacy, lasting appeal and combat. What do you think of their assessment?
OzHadou, Australia's largest and original FGC, invited myself and @MadeManG74 as guests to their "I Don't Even (Listen to this) Podcast" to talk about the game that everybody respects but is too scared to touch – Virtua Fighter. The VF talk starts around 34 minutes into the (approx) 2 hour gab fest and includes mentions of the resurgence of the Canadian VF scene, NYGX, and much, much more!
Netherlands-based art dealers Cook & Becker have been churning out museum-grade prints for a while now, with a recent focus on SEGA properties like Streets of Rage, Golden Axe and Jet Set Radio. Today, C&B unveils their tribute to Virtua Fighter 2, illustrated by Gerald Parel.
Hard to believe, isn't it? Somewhere in the hubbub of E3 megatons this year flew by for me. It feels like just yesterday I was sharing that first trailer - but that was like, 5 months ago. And now, we are mere weeks away from NYGX - and it's looking like it's going to be the biggest Virtua Fighter event outside of Japan this year. While you may scoff and think "some accomplishment that is", bear in mind that this year we've seen Virtua Fighter flourish in Canada, having landed tournaments and stream time at CECC2, Toryuken 4, and later this year, Canada Cup.
So, with all that in mind, I'm proud to say that NYGX will be bigger and better for VF than any of those. We've got confirmed guests flying in from all over the continental US including longtime vets like @adamYUKI , as well as community beacon @BLACKSTAR coming in from Georgia - and that flourishing Canadian scene? Yeah, they'll be at NYGX too! Long-time VFDC emperor...
In September 2014, a Japanese VF2 Tournament - Virtua Grand Prix V - was held online on the PS3. Footage from this tournament is available on YouTube and is worth checking out if you have around 45 minutes to kill. For some this may be a trip down memory lane, and others it might shed some new light on how this old game was once played. Either way, when compared to the version we all play today, it shows just how far we've come!
