QB Goes On Fighting Game Frenzy
(12/9/2002) With four big titles, fighting game fanatics won't need to wait as 2003 looks to be a big year for QB Fighting Games.

With only Park Fight 2 and Bounty Fighter serving as the only two such games in V Planet's QB review list, and a mix of entertaining and not-so-entertaining stick fighter games making up the rest of the QB fighting game genre, there's a serious need for some QB programmers to volunteer an update to QB's aging roster of fighting games.

Fortunately, fighting game fans won't have to suffer from hunger much longer, as several QB coding groups are working on some fresh, new titles that will probably have a 2003 release date. The following four in particular are some fighting game titles that V Planet is keeping a very close eye on:

Game #1: QB Battle Arena
V Planet Hands-On Experience: In-house Beta Testing
Just what the heck has V Games been up to since the announcement of making a fighting game last June? With six months going into development and the latest demo of the game being quite playable, this ambitious fighting game made by our in-house programming team (and primarily headed by yours truly) is not quite ready for a full hype treatment, but is ready to have an official game name, QB Battle Arena. Expect more news and secrets regarding this in-house title to be revealed very soon.

Game #2: Cobra
V Planet Hands-On Experinece: Secret Demo
Labeled as "the greatest QB fighting game" by programmer PJ, don't underestimate Cobra just because it uses Screen 7 graphics. The exclusive in-house demo of the game we received already features character AI, multiple special moves, shadows, and other goods that are above the standard expectations of a QB fighter.

Game #3: QB Dragon Ball Z
V Planet Hands-On Experinece: Released Demo
With a demo already released and reviewed by V Planet, QB programmer and Dragon Ball Z fan Ryan Mallon has established this title as the standard among QB fighting games. With it's two-player versus mode, players could practice punches, kicks, special moves, and super moves as the Saiyan prince Vegeta and get a taste of what this game will have to offer.

Game #4: HD's Unnamed Fighting Game
V Planet Experience: Murmurings on Forum
No discussion of QB fighting games without a sort of "secret character", and HD has been dropping hints of a fighting game being made for QB some time ago, and has since not been mentioning anything about it.
