i'll pass , i'm a fighting game fanatic , doesnt mean i'll support just about anything fighting game . Will sound shallow , but why would i support a game that look worse than even street fighter 1 or Fatal Fury 1 ?

I certainly aint nostalgic for Neo geo pocket throwbacks even with modern mechanics .

I loved the Neo-Geo Pocket but this is too much. They say "inspired" but a lot of the characters especially Naomi look exactly like ones you would find in KoF.

I don't feel that is right just taking other peoples ideas and slightly twisting them to make a profit from. In Naomi's instance, that is Terry Bogard from KoF just made female..

I am all for a new game like this but not one that lacks creativity like this one.

Especially when its aim is to be put on PC only. Why on earth would I pay hard earned money a game that looks worse and play wise looks worse than even the oldest Neo-Geo Pocket games that I could just emulate for free now on PC.

I'll stick with the classics, thanks. This is just too similar to KoF on Neo-Geo, just no way I could support it knowing it isn't even from the same people. Just some kids trying to cash in on old ideas without even changing them that much which is even worse.

Kickstarters are kinda getting out of hand.... i mean im down for Shantae and Mighty No. 9,but thats because i know the games will be good.

I don't see how this is any different than an advertisement. Why was it approved? The last thing N4G needs is an article for each and every game on Kickstarter. I hope this doesn't become a trend
