Default Fighting Games for PC? Or am I stuck with P.S. Emulation??

Are there ANY fighting games out for PC? Yeah, I like how Tekken3 looks @ 1280x1024, but DANG! I've been playing it for like 3 years, and wonder if there's any other options...

Yes I admit it, I try to make my PC do console-ish things, but it's unconventional and I LIKE IT!!

I guess if there's nothing for PC then I'll just go get Bloody Roar 2, and play it to death @ hi-rez...

Anything? Anything?

I believe many years ago when Body Blows came out the makers and supporters of it had their testicles removed so the fighting game spirit could not be continued....thats a no

not likely it seems all the good beat em ups/fighting and wrestling games are all console based these days....I was hoping for a Dead Or Alive 4 port from the Xbox to PC but that doesn't seem to be on the cards...at least I haven't heard of anythingto the contrary!

We need a few decent fighting/boxing games for the PC. PC games coverage is most weak in that area.(..and platform...but I think ppl who wanted to play platform would buy a console?)

We have enough FPS and RTS and RPG games going round to last ....at least thats what i think...till Doom 3 or Unreal 2 or even Stalker comes round? But it would be nice to take your fustrations with a good punch or some 21 combo hit move to an opponent than blasting them away with machine guns, rocket launchers. ...sometimes!

well ....heres hoping

:P

I wish there was more in the way of beat-em ups for the pc. I want more variety on top of the endless fps shooters.

Only two i can think of:

Scrolling beater The Rage which is a side scrolling beat-em up like Streets of Rage or Final fight you can download the demo at the site. I've got the Rage and it's ok, but could be better. You can have up to 4 players on one pc or networked though. They also have a beat-em up game called Jaxe in development at the moment. You should be able to see some screenshots if you download the english powerpoint presentation for the bit headed "NEW 3D ENGINE".

The other one that seems really interesting is "One Must Fall: Battlegrounds"which is based on an older side on beat-em (one-on-one like streetfighter 2 - you can download the old one free, but it is a DOS game) called One Must Fall. "Battlegrounds" is not out yet, but they have been beta testing it for a while and it's scheduled for release first quarter this year i think.

If you're a fan of Mortal Kombat, MK4 was available for the PC at one time. The only way you'd probably find it now is through ebay.

But I don't think we'll be seeing any new fighting games for the PC anytime in the forseeable future. That's fine - every type of gaming system has to have its niche.

Yeah, I had it on my Amiga500.
Now that must make me even older

Oh, and isn't ePSXe just a wonderful thing ?
There's nothing quite like Wipeout3, at 1280x960x32 4xS FSAA, 2x AA.

Hehe ... body blows ... played it at school many years ago on the 486 comps they had there (or if it was 386). I had it retail for amiga too. Nice game

There are very few beat em ups for pc and that is a shame I think, Im a huge fan of beat em ups, got tons of them for psx and for my new ps2 i got a few weeks back most of my games are fighting games.

But for pc the best thing to do is to just get a good emulator.

If you are a real fan of 2d beat em ups ala street fighter like me then you should check out neogeo. Most of the games for that system is beat em ups, and they are good too. The best ones are made by Snk, like King of fighters series. Rage of dragons is cool too.

Ill have to check out epsxe too now when I have upgraded my comp, didnt even cross my mind.

btw is there a working ps2 emu out yet ?

Nope and probably never will be either. PS2 is still way too powerful for any computer the average Joe would be using.
