Why M.U.G.E.N. 1.0+ Rocks!
Posted on Monday, November 19 2012 @ 14:28:02 Eastern

This member blog post was promoted to the GameRevolution homepage.


I thought everyone in the GR community was on hiatus, playing their Halos, Assassin's Creeds, and Call of Dutys, but it seems there was also a glitch on the blogs (which affected me at least). Either way, I've decided to write a Vox Pop of my own to get things rolling again. That's right, Nick Tan has ninja'd the Vox Pop. I'll just give myself that prize, bwahaha. (Just kidding.)

Anyway, I won't blame you if the first thing you think of when you hear "Mugen" is Samurai Champloo. Your heart is in the right place.

M.U.G.E.N. is actually a freeware PC fighting game simulator where you can combine all of the 2D fighters together in one happy, fistful, belligerent family. I've spoken about this amazing piece of software before, and I've had M.U.G.E.N. on my computer for several years. But it wasn't until now (oh, how I blame myself) that I realized that there was an HD upgrade called M.U.G.E.N. 1.0+.

So I downloaded the new M.U.G.E.N., recalibrated the system, crossed the streams, and now I can have Wolverine from Marvel vs. Capcom face off against Ryu from Street Fighter II HD Remix with lifebars from Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter.

Or how about Glacius from Killer Instinct versus a 2D version of Captain Falcon fighting on Guile's iconic stage? I can even add in Scorpion and Sub-Zero, just for Anthony. Or perhaps, just for Daniel, have Crash Bandicott get double teamed by.... well anyone, because he deserves it.

If you're interested in the wonder of M.U.G.E.N. 1.0+, you can find info at Mugen Fighters Guild or other Mugen sites. There's plenty of information out there, though it can be a little tricky to understand where to place things and how to modify the text files at first. Still, it's worth it. Oh, is it worth it.
