Curious as to why this section is on eventhubs. Ive never heard of any other fighter on this site besides capcoms. With an exeption to sfxt

Kingheart said on January 28, 2012 at 6:34 p.m.

This is cool.

ArcShawdow said on January 28, 2012 at 6:44 p.m.

I'm happy it's here, and welcomed addition. They shouldn't limit themselves to just Capcom games in my opinion.

Catalyst said on January 28, 2012 at 6:56 p.m.

Wow, you guys discovered this quickly. Official announcement coming soon.

MadMetalSlayer said on January 28, 2012 at 7:06 p.m.

^^^my exact reaction to seeing this updated into Eventhubs

wow didnt expect this

No_Surrender said on January 28, 2012 at 7:41 p.m.

Good stuff Eventhubs!

Kamehamehadouken said on January 28, 2012 at 7:44 p.m.

Okay. So where is Blazblue, Gulity Gear, and Darkstalkers?

Combo_Knight said on January 28, 2012 at 8:13 p.m.

* Hand claps*

Finally! Horizons are expanding, well done.

Virtua_Kazama said on January 28, 2012 at 8:43 p.m.

Wow, this is a big change for Eventhubs. We finally got a KOF 13 guide!

tokyobassist said on January 28, 2012 at 9:20 p.m.

Thank you Catalyst for the giving KoF XIII a home. I love the game to death but I'm not familiar with the Orochinagi forums so this is a cool place to get some hype going.

Glenburg said on January 28, 2012 at 9:51 p.m.

A little part of me died inside then came back!
This made my day along with the 3 v 3 tourney I saw earlier on the LevelUp Stream.

Krownclown said on January 29, 2012 at 6:34 a.m.

@8 why would they add those games, they are all dead?

howling said on January 29, 2012 at 8:49 a.m.

Eventhubs staff. You guys are geniuses and made my day. THANK YOU!

Batsu said on January 29, 2012 at 8:55 a.m.


Those games are a lot better then the ones that are currently out this gen. EH could be responsible for reviving some of the best fighters ever made. Darkstalkers is, anyway.

Mecha_G said on January 29, 2012 at 9:35 a.m.

So, EventHubs is finally expanding beyond Capcom fighters?

Cammy0strike said on January 29, 2012 at 10:23 a.m.

Great, we already started with the basics move list, thats a good thing... Can't wait to see what EH will bring in the near future... I must say, I really like the direction you are taking here, bringing more fightings (non-capcom) to the table, I think it's good for all.

Model_M said on January 29, 2012 at 10:33 a.m.

What better way to start expanding to other fighters than with the best fighting game on this generation. Good stuff Eventhubs.

Super_Shoto_Fighter_4 said on January 29, 2012 at 1:33 p.m.

This is a good direction for EH. Dead or Alive 5 would be good to add as well.

GenSoHotSpicy said on January 29, 2012 at 2:01 p.m.

Thank you EventHubs for putting a non-Capcom fighting game guide on your site. I think it's funny how plenty of people asked for a Mortal Kombat 9 guide 10 months ago and everyone said EH is for Capcom only. THE HYPOCRISY!!! Although it's rather late can you guys add a MK9 section.. after all it's IMHO better than the rest of the games you have guides for (and I have them all).

pegasus23 said on January 30, 2012 at 12:45 a.m.

Yes!!! finally I can get KOF news in Eventhubs!!
Thank You EH !
I play SSF4 , MK and KOF .
Keep it up ....

Raelador said on January 31, 2012 at 11:03 a.m.

The frames in this game are too slow. It needs a ton more frames models go from standing to a jump animation instantly. It looks weird and whoever plays this game probably sucks at life.

Krownclown said on February 1, 2012 at 5:49 p.m.

@23 because this is an offensive rush down based game. Why bash a whole community of players? you suck at life for taking the time to load the Kof section up just to say that.

anyway, everyone who is interested in this game should join the forums.

pegasus23 said on February 2, 2012 at 9:32 a.m.

Forums ? ... Yea , I love this game

Aquaman said on February 2, 2012 at 7:34 p.m.

About damn time.

Kenshiro said on February 3, 2012 at 5:18 a.m.

@15 that's your opinion. Just by you stating it's alot better than the fighters this of this gen is far reaching.

RoanHen said on February 6, 2012 at 6:17 p.m.

I've been playing KOF and SNK games since the very first ones, and this KOF XIII is really awesome.

JeanPierreKoF said on February 7, 2012 at 4:50 p.m.

at laaaaaaaaaaasssssssttttt KOF13 the best versus fighting game ever ! (console version)

warriors said on February 12, 2012 at 5:52 p.m.

why are the character graphics so bad in this game?
They would have probably appealed to a lot more players if they had modern quality graphics

Other than graphics really nice game thought

mullinier said on February 13, 2012 at 1:59 p.m.

I hope in the upcoming king of fighters game kof xiii climax that they release a code to play as the bosses and maybe add aldehied as a playable character.

BlowMeMegaMan said on March 21, 2012 at 5:03 p.m.

@1 how is sfxt an exception to games made by capcom? Ignorant people post a lot.

X_Axel said on April 30, 2012 at 9:12 p.m.

KOF13>SF4 that is all, but it is very cool to see Event exspand their border of fighting games.

NINTENDOGalaxy said on July 28, 2012 at 12:26 a.m.

Im about to get this game, all i need is for someone to explain to me how the bunny hop and other jumps are useful in this game and combos.

Model_M said on August 10, 2012 at 2:50 p.m.

@35 The game has a tutorial mode, it'll explain everything you need to know.

dejavu22 said on August 10, 2012 at 6:34 p.m.

KOF stole the show at EVO. Hope the new attention to KOF and SNK results in Capcom vs SNK 3 and SNK vs Cacpm 2

portalsofmadnes said on August 25, 2012 at 11:09 p.m.

I really dig playing this game,classic SNK controlls and amazing artwork. KOF13>SSF4 any day!!!

gouki365 said on October 8, 2012 at 5:22 p.m.

Yo, can anybody help me out!?!
i play a ton of SF III and right now it's really the only fighter game i'm playing. I really want to get into KOF XIII but i can't stand the button config at all. i use a stick, can anyone tell me how i should set the button config? or should i just use the default? I really don't want to use the default, it sucks.

TheTrueFighter said on November 27, 2012 at 9:13 p.m.

This is the best fight game series nest to street fighter

ThePowerOfPOOH said on March 22, 2013 at 5:52 p.m.

@30 you do realize that this game actually does have amazing graphics. Just because it's 2D doesn't mean it has bad graphics

JDizzle said on May 19, 2013 at 8:22 p.m.

kof is the best fighting game series outside of the sf series

T_Killer said on June 4, 2013 at 5:26 p.m.

The best fighting game this generation, very balanced, regular damage, in other words, no craziness, no one will grab you and not wanting to take your character with half a dozen hits effortlessly ... Scrubbers joysticks and buttons crushers has no time. real game of great people.

Troppop said on September 26, 2013 at 11:54 a.m.


Got it from Steam a few weeks back and have been playing quite a bit and practiced.
This is a series I have been interested in for years.
And my first impression from playing it is that it is ridiculously unbalanced.
Might just be me missing out on some mechanics (there are ridiculous amount of these in there without any explanation...).

No craziness? It's packed, crammed and stuffed with crazy stuff here and there. Weird hitboxes here and there etc..

I'm not trashtalking the game, because I've started to like it.

Just tough to adapt to the raw technical mechanics in the game. Because this is impossible to play by trying out through logic...
Even MvC's hitboxes makes more sense then these!

elementalist_110 said on March 13, 2014 at 6:12 p.m.

I love the roster on KoF, quite personalized and unique. Its got a good balance from what I've experienced so far. Just sad that the community isn't large. I think that is because of the company's choice to advertise XII (beta) more instead of XIII and that the learning curve on the game is pretty big; not really meant for casual play. I play it for fun cause I like the story lines.

CockyChris_97 said on September 25, 2014 at 7:38 a.m.

I hope snk can get out a fresh new kof game in the near future. Plus i wont mind for new Art of Fighting or Samurai Showdown either, they are both good fighting game in there own right. Get you game up SNK.

Side note: still love kof xiii no matter what

nightmaresteam said on December 27, 2015 at 7:10 p.m.

KOFXIV better be way better than this.

nakedking said on April 16, 2016 at 5:38 p.m.
