So saw this tweet and it got me thinking about what random bullshit would I hit somebody with if they challenged me to a FT5. The best I could come up with was Darkstalkers, but even then, most people totally get it. So what's the best y'all can come up with? Anyone still rocking the Pro Survival Arts scene?

I play MORTAL KOMBAT PROJECT on MUGAN... it is basically MK3.. but with like every MK character and guest character in it all at once.

I also play DARKSTALKERS and THE LAST BLADE e a lot still.

I have recent got SUPER PILLOW FIGHT and FIGHT OF THE GODS during the recent steam sale, just for fun...

I also have a few mates who I play MELTY BLOOD ACTRESS AGAIN CURRENT CODE and UNDER NIGHT IN-BIRTH EXE:LATE... ps.. UnderKnight could be the best 2D fighting.. lowkey!

I will leave my seal on you!
Red Earth AKA Warzard, a fighting game with RPG elements from Capcom, it was a really unique and fun game to play and it clearly was ahead of it's time by concept, it's just that it a lot of issues to become successful: An RPG based system that requires codes on an Arcade machine, problems with the hardware, and a super small roster of playable chars even for it's time (MK1 had 7 playable chars in 1992, and this game had only 4 and it was released in the arcades in 1996), so it never was as successful as it could've been, and it never ported to consoles or PC.

It was still a fun game to play, and it brought some really cool chars to the fighting game world like Kenji, Tessa and Lavia.

There were a few others that I've played but they were just demo versions of them so I'm not gonna count them.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that Red Earth also had Fatalities in it, Capcom tried to take elements from other fighting games for this one and this yes, they took the Fatalities from Mortal Kombat, another reason to like the game.

Also, here is a video.

I wouldn't say "play" necessarily but I needed an obscure game in my collection to random someone out with then I'd definitely go with Waku Waku 7.

The more I've learned about UNIEL the more I've come to think you might be right.



As to thread title, it's not obscure exactly but I play a little Garou, Mark of the Big Angry Puppies. Rock is the homie.

Otherwise, I got nothing that's obscure. Some bbcf recently, and GG, I have, but have not played in forever, KOFxiv and xiii.. but none of these are even remotely obscure.

Clay Fighter, Deadliest Warrior, Primal Rage, Bio-Freaks, Terrordrome and a game I forget where the characters are made up of balls making their entire body.

Toribash? That game is low key godlike, it's stupidly fun to play once you get the hang of it
Yes! that's it lol thanks.

I think that's it lol, there's another game similar called Ballz 3D for SNES, but yeah I think you're right I remember something with a T. They're kind of similar somewhat. I was confusing them, but yeah both of them were funny.

Get over here!
I don't actually play it but I have a copy of Star Wars Masters of Teras Kasi for PS1. That's a pretty obscure fighting game.
