Unbelievable but true: For the first time you can really win something on Goh Notes.  If you’re interested in 2D fighters, in particular in The King of Fighters series, listen up.

As I’ve finished the review of The King of Fighters XII for a German game magazine (yes, the game just got out here), I thought why not giving away SNK Playmore’s newest 2D-fighter for free.

The Goh Quiz #3

face-devilish Put your Goh knowledge to the ultimate test!

A fellow Goh player askes for your advice. Post your answer in the comments below. Be as precise as possible.

This Aoi player is terrific! Not only that she manages to escape my ground throws far too often. Even if I go for a down-punch dfp when she’s been floored, her timing is often good enough to reverse that too. Having slammed her on the ground with my favorite throw now (dfpplusg), any amount of damage dealt to her would be enough to knock her out. But I’m not sure what to do. What would my best option be here to finish her off?

The Goh Quiz #2

face-devilishPut your Goh knowledge to the ultimate test!

No multiple choice. No further hints – just plain hardcore. But Goh-specific hardcore!

Read carefully and solve the following situation to your advantage. Post your answer in the comments below, but don’t be vague.

What a lousy start you had in this tournament final! You barely managed to make up for it in the last two rounds. It’s 2:2 now – the last round decides the whole tournament. You don’t feel so confident anymore, eventhough you prepared so well beforehand practicing the timing of even the hardest combos in and out in Dojo Mode. You are up against a really strong player, though, who is able to read most of your actions (although, funnily, he always tech-rolls to the very same side). His superb Yomi mastery has put your health bar to an alarming minimum again. He feels quite relaxed – which is no wonder as his health bar shows barely any sign of depletion. (In fact, he still has 149 of 200 life points.) Time is, again, running out making you dead aware that your next action may very well be your last. Fortunately, you just managed to successfully hit him with bfkplusg. But which moves to use now?

The Goh Quiz #1

face-devilishPut your Goh knowledge to the ultimate test!

No multiple choice. No further hints – just plain hardcore. And Goh specific.

Read carefully and solve the following situation to your advantage. Post your answer in the comments. But don’t be vague!

It’s been an exhaustive match. Both your opponent and you have pretty drained health bars. The next successful hit will decide between victory or defeat. After you made up your mind and went for Goh’s fairly safe standard kick, your opponent was, unfortunately, lucky enough to get that move blocked. Due to previous fights with him you know that he will either go for a throw that you know the throw escape of, a punch combo, or a staggering, half-circular mid-elbow that would lead to a huge follow-up for him. As you’re running out of time – did those 45 seconds really go by that quickly? –, you want to finish the match here and now. But what to do to turn the tables putting this match to an end?
