So I finished playing SNK vs. Capcom: Match of the Millennium some time ago. I loved the game. I adore the art style, I love the variety of characters available and unlockable, and I appreciate that the character sprites are short so that they leave a lot of space above them to jump (weird thing to like, but I'm not into characters being unable to jump any satisfactory height or getting their top half cut off at the top when they do). Granted, I couldn't beat the game at any mode higher than Easy, but things kind of evened near the end when I had to play Tournament mode more times than if I'd done a higher difficulty to chip away at unlocking characters.
I'm now playing other Neo Geo Pocket Color fighters alongside games I give my primary focus. I want to buy the SNK collections - the general arcade one, the King of Fighters one, the Samurai Shodown one, any other I'm missing from this list - and the Capcom collections that contain Street Fighter and several versions of Street Fighter II. If anyone has recommendations of collections or specific versions of a collection, let me know because I have both a Wii and a PlayStation 2.
I'm also missing the Fightman Game blog posts. I understand some of their in-jokes better than others, but I enjoy each new one.
