    The plan is to have anybody that wants to hang out, meet myself and Kodomo in H-Wood the night before the show (potentially), just to hang out and grab some food, or what not (depending on the people involved it could also take the form of bar hopping ;)

    Announcement forthcoming,

    Post was not sarcasm I just find that EGM has a better quality of writing and I hate everyone one else's five star or whatever review system. Now forgive my ignorance what is so horrible about EGM?

    Well yes that makes them look bad but if we discounted american media based solely on their ignorance of VF we couldn't pay any attention to american video game media and I dont know about you but I like to be able to read my magazines. Also EGM gave VF3tb a pretty good review by "american standards" I think they actually gave it a silver award. They also put VF2 in their top 100 videogames of all time feature I think it clocked in at 70 or so a little low in my opinion. One time when previewing VF3tb for the Dreamcast they said the level of play that you can achieve with this game is more advanced than every other fighter out there and in the same preview said the level of dedication that harcore VF'ers have is more the level of zen masters than of videogame players. So I think overall they have treated VF alright hell they are the mag that got me interested in the game.

    I have a question. What opinion does everyone have of Next Generation? Ever since it first debuted, Next Gen were devoted fans of the Virtua Fighter series. All the arcade and home versions of VF were given the highest respect, and it was obvious that the editors and writers actually played the damn game. In short, not only is it the only videogame magazine not aimed at 13-year-old boys, it is intelligent and has always faithfully supported great videogames, regardless of who's advertising that month. For the American VF scene, the choice (to me) seems clear.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Dont believe I have read Next-Gen but if it's pro VF I am all for it. Now not all magazines are aimed at 13 year olds EGM's main demographic is 17-25 year olds and the writing is aimed at that level. I also disagree with your "whoever is advertising in their magazine that month" comment no wonder everybody dislikes SEGA fans anytime some one does not praise Phantasy Star or thinks Shenmue is a work of art we all scream bias at the top of our lungs we have got to stop this kind of behavior it just gives us a bad name.

    Next Gen only says good things about VF but they only do this to create a superficial hardcore appearance. They really have no idea how to play fighters.

    Shou-sama hit it right on the nail.

    Trust me, it's pretty damn clear that Next-Gen as a whole do not know how to play VF3. They only know that the game is supposed to be deep, hard to master, played mainly by "hardcore" gamers and just generally the kick ass game that we recognize it to be. And since they want to project the image of being hardcore, that is exactly what they write.

    Note how they do not talk about the mechanics or theory behind the gameplay. Note their total turnaround when SC came out. You see, even though Next-Gen knows that VF3 is supposed to be an awesome game they don't really know enjoy it. Out comes SC which even most VF3 players admit to be as deep and which the beginners at Next-Gen can finally at least enjoy playing. This gives them the chance to liberate their insecurities, going 180 degrees and beating down on VF3 as inferior to SC without justifying its conclusion with any detailed analysis. Welcome to journalism, where the authors try to anticipate what is "hot" and put themselves behind it.

    The best indicator of whether an author really understands the game (or has done his research) is when he writes something specific about the gameplay that only an advanced player can know about. When someone compares VF3 to any other fighting game (SC, TTT or DOA2) note how detailed the comparisons get.

    I think it was in their first "Top 100 games of all time" feature, under memorable moments for VF2 they put "discovering the codes for entering Dural's stage". Huh?

    NG used to be good, these days it's not fit to wipe my ass.

    Soul Calibur as deep as Virtua Fighter? On what planet did such a thing happen?? :)

    If Soul Calibur was a hand to hand combat game I'd love it, but it's not so I just like the game.

    As far as Next-Gen goes, well they're an ok Magazine for the intellectuals of the world but they lack the spirit or spunkiness of Gamefan and even Gamers Republic.. My other problem with Next-Gen is their hatred of 2D games. They've made no secret about their dislike of the 2D genre, I just think it's lame that they won't rate 2D games with an open mind but but will gladly sit through some of the 3D borefests out there and point out all the little details of why the game sucks or rocks..

    As far as their knowledge or info on Virtua Fighter III or any other Virtua Fighter goes,,, the day they write up a Fighters guide to the game and maybe provide a FAQ is the day their comments will hold a little more water with me :)
