The newest issue of Game Informer (Feburary 2005) has a 3 page article on the King of Fighters series in its Classic GI section... It's pretty interesting.... has anybody else gotten to check it out yet? It has an interview with one of the planners for the series and some anecdotes about the storyline and how KOF introduced the team concept to fighting games and all that jazz.

Thanks Merc... I just broke down and went to get this at Gamestop to today too! Oh well, got a decent deal I suppose, did that 10 issues for $10 and a Gamestop discount card deal. I am sure there are others that want to see this article that have not broken down though. :D

While mortal Kombat is a very good game, Illl have to go with Donkey Kong.

Thanks Merc! Although, it is a bit blurry so it hurts my eyes to read it. I'll read it later. More magazines to recognize fucken' SNK.

Well I resized them to be big enough to read if you look closely, but not too small that they would be impossible to read. The original scans would've taken up too much of the screen forcing everyone to scroll left and right for eons. *It's what happens when a NEO peep tries to cover all the bases and be nice.

Pretty cool. Other than the needless marking down of classic's original scores (omg, it's not pretty anymore, minus .5 for that) Classic GI's putting out some neat stuff. They also had Panzer Dragoon Saga a couple months ago basically saying it was still an overlooked classic.
