King of Fighters XIII (PS3)

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable!, 26 Dec. 2011
Sipmly put, King of Fighters XIII has blown me away! I play a lot of SSFIV and other "capcom fighters" and hadn't played any King Of Fighters (or SNK game for that matter) before.

Matches play out in a 3v3 style, with each character coming in one at a time. It uses mechanics that are familiar from other fighting games, such as EX versions of moves, super moves and "Neo Max" (Ultra) moves. Initially I thought the fights would feel disjointed (due to characters not being able to be swapped out mid fight) but it flows well.

Despite not being as well known, this game meets Street Fighter's level of quality, with a huge roster of (balanced) characters and gorgeous 2D animation. Other features include a full colour editor for each character, trials, online story mode, arcade mode, and being able to play custom music on the PS3 version.

However, there are a few downsides. The online portion of the game's netcode is (generally) poor. SNK Playmore are working on this though, and will be patching it in the coming months. The story mode also has no voices of any kind in the cutscenes. While I like it this way, I feel many won't.

Summed up, King of Fighters has a few kinks in the online department, but overall is a FANTASTIC game. If you play fighting games on any level, you'd be a fool to pass this up. King of Fighters is back and here to stay!

5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievable quality, 11 Nov. 2011
Piggyback's official guide for Uncharted 3 is, hands down, the best guide I've ever seen. The content is thorough and laid out well, the pages are bustling with detail (whether it be in the words themselves, or the artwork on every page), and the book itself is fantastic - the pages are not flimsy by any means, and the cover looks amazing!

I may seem blown away by the book, but that's because I am! Well done Piggyback!
