Fighting as Peter Griffin

Posted on Friday, May 4 @ 18:04:28 Eastern by Duke_Ferris
Ever wonder where all those videos come from of Ryu punching birds in Duck Hunt, or Godzilla stomping through the first level of Super Mario? It's called M.U.G.E.N. and you can play it all yourself for free.

It's a little tricky, so first some history. M.U.G.E.N. (mugen) means "no limits" in Japanese, and the letters don't actually stand for anything. It's an open ended 2D fighting game engine that lets you edit fighters, backgrounds, moves, just about anything. The community around the system is pretty hardcore, and there are some very creative modifications out there with characters from The Simpsons, Futurama, Resident Evil, and recently, Peter from Family Guy.

To start you need M.U.G.E.N. itself, which you can find here. It comes with the necessary patches that remove the nag screens and other annoyances since the developer abandoned the software.

Now you're ready for some games and characters. A few good sites to get them are Randomselect, Mugenation, Mugen Infantry, and Mugen History which is a confusing site, but has the Peter Griffin character. (Hint: click on "Hosted Characters" then click on "2")

Any questions? The forums at The Mugen Fighters Guild has all the answers.

Homer Simpson vs Peter Griffin? Priceless.
