I Won a Trophy for Jackie Chan

#1 Posted by MrJared (399 posts) -

Hey all. At NorCal Regionals a month or so ago, my friend Pavo (ILLiterate, NorCal Boxer player) and I money matched to see who was the best Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire player in the region. I won and for Christmas, he gave me my reward. 
 
  

   
 Toooooo good!

That might be the first Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire trophy ever. But I have a feeling it won't be the last...

Some call him a god.
 
I call him a man who should play Valkyria Chronicles.

It's not spam if its original content ... or relevant to the Bomb ;D 
 
And I yes, my main was Jackie. Not Jackie, but the other one.

Dude, awesome. Has this game become the official game of Giantbomb yet?

Great job being distinguished in your region.
That's quite a nice trophy, good on your friend.

NorCal pride for life. Representing the real biz, Jared.

#23 Posted by MetalGearSunny (7003 posts) -

Come to think of it, Kim-Maree's name should be changed to Jacki to add to the confusion. It makes perfect sense.

Congrats Mr. Rea. You have managed to either single-handedly destroy or single handedly revitalize the fighting game tournament scene through the power of Jackie Chan!

Are any of these games worth becoming the time to be #1 in them?

Mike Ross was there to witness the "Best of NorCal" Jackie Chan matches. We like to tease him about it because, well, it's fun to tease the Boss :)  COLD PIECE!

Yes! Jeff and I like to trade obscure fighting games with each other (He showed me Daraku Tenshi, which I can't believe I missed), so this is something we talk about a lot. A real rough summary of the notable games on that list.. 
 
Asuka 120%: The original Arcana Heart, which is to say, you might as well play Arcana Heart :)  

Slap Happy Rhythm Busters: Its hard to track down, but its the only fighting game to effectively incorporate rhythm game mechanics. So awesome.  

Groove-on Fight: This game is actually pretty legit, but it's so out there and bizarre that it's very difficult to learn. Also, none of the characters are particularly likable for most players, so its hard to grasp a main. This is still played fairly regularly at Mikado in Japan.
 
Tobal 2: I really loved this game when it was new, but I'm not sure how its aged. It's probably still a lot of fun.   

Waku Waku 7: My favorite Neo-Geo fighter next to Real Bout 2. Definitely check this out if not for the cast of characters. Its really fun. 
 
I made my own list on this very subject a few weeks ago.

@MrJared, ever heard of " The Last Blade 2: Heart Of The Samurai"? I'm not sure if it counts as an obscure game in the US, but if you haven't heard of it, you should definitely check it out. I only played the Neo Geo version, so I don't know about any of the other versions, but it's definitely my favorite fighting game of all times.

#35 Posted by MrJared (399 posts) -
@Salabrin: Yep, I used to play it fairly regularly when it was new. I still don't know why Samurai Shodown is held up in such high regard while the Last Blade series is largely ignored. Probably because LB takes a lot more effort to play correctly.

Yeah. Although when I was auditioned to be a moderator, he made me play Eternal Champions: Challengers from the Dark Side. I timer scammed him. He was playing blindfolded of course, since that's how Jeff plays all fighting games.

I'd rather go for a Super Saiyan Jackie.

#43 Posted by JackiJinx (3091 posts) -

I feel like I've won that trophy just by hearing the name Jackie repeated so many times. Represent.

Omg, that is fucking awesome dude! Congrats! The greatest fighting game of all time is making its assent!

Ah. Smart choice. "

You're both pretty dumb, Jackie is the worst character in the game. I guess if you can win with Jacki, you earn my respect, but at the same time come off as an idiot to me. 
 
I'll just stick with Jackie because he is the best character in the game, even better than Jackie... 
 
But I guess jackie has the certain something about him, hmmmmmmmm.

Who's joking? Just because I think Jackie is better than Jackie is better than Jackie doesn't make my opinion a joke. 
 
Troll!
