SAMURAI SHODOWN Free Download Unfitgirl While it may not be a household name like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, Samurai Shodown is a storied fighting game series with a legacy to uphold. The 2019 version, which is simply titled Samurai Shodown, does a great job of bringing its unique brand of methodical footsies-based 2D duels into this modern era of fighters.Samurai Shodown finds itself on the fighting game spectrum somewhere in between Street Fighter and Divekick, meaning it’s not about combos, juggles, block strings, frame traps, or other high-level fighting game techniques. Instead, it strips all of that away, leaving a game that is laser focused on careful positioning, reading your opponent, and brutally punishing their mistakes. This level of simplicity definitely has its appeal, and Samurai Shodown strikes a good balance between approachability and deeper mechanics that helps separate those who just mash special and heavy attacks from those who take the time to learn. Nuances like the best times to deflect, when to spot dodge, when to trigger rage explosions, when to use Lightning Blade attacks, and when to close your eyes, cross your fingers, and use a Darli Dagger punch to pull a victory out of thin air are all part of the mix. Shodown with regards to the basics of combat. There’s a great and easily understandable logic behind each of Samurai Shodown’s four buttons UNFITGILR.COM SEXY GAMES
light attacks and kicks are quick and can interrupt slower attacks, medium attacks generally have long reach and can serve as great pokes in the neutral, and heavy attacks are huge, slow swings that deal appropriately massive damage but also come with a significant risk. Getting a heavy attack blocked generally means you’re open to eating a huge punish, but what’s wonderful about Samurai Shodown, is the fact that mind games are prevalent at just about every juncture. As an example: Let’s say my heavy just got blocked, which is typically very bad. But, if I predict that the opponent is going to retaliate with their own medium or heavy, I can use a deflect to cancel the block stun animation, knock the sword out of their hands, and score a counter for myself. On the other end of that though, if they predict I’m going to do deflect, instead of using a heavy strike, they can utilize a move that can’t be deflected, like their one-time-use super-special move and deal about 80% of my life as damage. And that’s one of the things that makes Samurai Shodown so much fun. You get massively rewarded for good reads and massively punished for big mistakes, and while that’s true in other fighters too, it’s on another level here. There’s an extraordinarily tense style of fighting that is unlike just about anything else in the genre.

Hitting the Dojo
There are a few elements on top of the four-button simplicity that add some extra depth. Returning from previous Samurai Shodowns is the rage gauge, which increases as you take damage or land well-timed “Just Guards.” Maxing it out increases the strength of your attacks for a short while and also gives you access to your weapon-flipping super-move, which not only does huge damage but also disarms your opponent, forcing them to scramble to pick their sword up off the ground. Alone, the rage gauge is a great comeback mechanic, but what makes it extra special is the ability to use a rage explosion at any time to instantly gain full rage and the ability to use the devastating lightning blade attack. The trade-off is that once you trigger a rage explosion, you lose your rage gauge for the remainder of the match, which puts it in a good spot as a big risk vs reward trump card. My only issue with the whole system is that I wish the rage gauge had some sort of timer or something to let you know when it’s about to run out, because there’s nothing worse than having an opening for a weapon flipping super, inputting it, and then realizing that your rage had just expired. If you get disarmed, you’re at a huge disadvantage, but you’re not completely helpless. Each character has a unique set of punches and kicks, with some characters even still having access to their command grabs even while weaponless. F.I.S.T.: Forged In Shadow Torch PS5
The coolest part about trying to fight while disarmed though, is when you’re able to perform a deflect at just the right time to catch their sword with your bare hands, disarm them, and even the playing field. Samurai Shodown’s cast of 16 wildly different characters is one of the best things it has going for it. Each one is brimming with personality, from the returning screen-filling Texan ninja, Earthquake, to the brand-new clumsy Chinese warrior Wu Ruixiang, who summons a dragon on accident for her super move and fumbles around looking for her glasses when she’s disarmed. It’s adorable. There are a ton of interesting small details to each character as well. The seven-sword-wielding Yoshitora has a ridiculously overpowered special move that he can only use if he manages to land all six of his other special moves in a round; Nakoruru can hang on to her bird and freely fly around or shoot towards her opponent on a split-second’s notice; and then there’s the aforementioned Darli Dagger, who can deal 60 to 70% damage with an unarmed armored punch.You can learn a little bit about each of these characters through a traditional, by which I mean outdated, story/arcade mode that gives each character an intro, a conversation between themselves and a rival character, and an ending – and that’s it.
The Seven Samurai… Plus Nine
That may have been fine in 2005, but the bar has been raised for fighting game story modes since then, not only by big-budget games like Mortal Kombat and Injustice, but also by Guilty Gear Xrd, BlazBlue, and SoulCalibur 6. The worst part of it all, though, is the 30 seconds of a boring black loading screen that happens between each match. That’s far too long for a fighting game. Along with Story Mode, Samurai Shodown’s set of modes is pretty standard. There’s a basic tutorial that teaches you about the various mechanics; a score-driven gauntlet, survival, and time-trial modes. There’s offline versus and online versus for both casual and ranked play, with the casual option sporting rooms for up to 10 players; and finally a Dojo mode that allows you to play against ghosts of other players, which are created based on their playstyle. Or at least, that’s the idea, but the reality is… not very impressive. I don’t know how many fights you need to play to really program your ghost to behave like a real person, but every ghost I’ve played essentially just jumped up and down, never approached, and utilized special moves seemingly at random. I did get to test the netcode while playing against a buddy in casual play, and the results were remarkably smooth. F1 2018
However, the real test will be at launch when you’re able to match against all sorts of connections, so I’ll keep an eye out.When Street Fighter II arrived in arcades in the early ’90s and turned the one-on-one fighter into the genre of choice for millions of players, it predictably caused a deluge of copycat clones to flood the market, each offering a slightly different take on the concept. Few of these could hold a candle to Capcom’s effort, but one title stood out from the rest not only due to its unique and atmospheric setting but the way it actually played. Samurai Shodown (known as Samurai Spirits in Japan) was the work of SNK’s crack developers and former Capcom staff, which perhaps accounted for the incredible leap in quality over its rivals. With a focus on weapons, this was a more methodical fighter, in which victory (or ‘Victoly’ if you’re going by the often amusing ‘Engrish’ translation work for which the series is famous) could be a matter of a handful of successful blows. Fast forward to the present day, and Samurai Shodown continues to hold a high level of respect among fighting game aficionados, even if many of them argue that the series saw its zenith with 1994’s Samurai Shodown II. After resurrecting its equally popular King of Fighters series in 2.5D, a rejuvenated SNK performed a similar trick with Samurai Shodown, bringing the game to modern consoles last year.
Back to Basics
Predictably, the Switch has had to wait a little longer, but the good news is that those few months have been totally worth it for fighting game fans. Safari Games – the company responsible for this conversation – has skillfully carried over everything that matters without having to cut too many corners when it comes to performance. If you’ve never played a Samurai Shodown game before, a brief introduction is probably in order. While it has things like projectile attacks, combos, super moves and all that jazz, it really is worth stressing that the core gameplay feels very, very different from the likes of Street Fighter V and King of Fighters XIV. The fact that the characters have lethal weapons means that fights are often over as quickly as they have begun; hitting home with a powerful heavy attack is enough to slash away a massive chunk of your opponent’s health bar, and, as a result, the game is less about pressing your advantage as it is about playing defensively and waiting for an opening to appear. Past sequels have tried to tinker with this slow-and-steady approach with varying degrees of success (and the less said about Samurai Shodown Sen, the last mainline update from 2008, the better), so it’s pleasing to note that with this update, SNK has utterly nailed what made the series so compelling back in the early ’90s.

While Samurai Shodown in 2020 obviously looks a lot better than it did back then (more on the visuals in a moment), it ‘feels’ just as fresh and different now as it did in 1993. Battles have a wonderful ebb and flow to them, with the balance shifting quickly between opponents as they mix up powerful blows with tricky special moves. Knowing that a single mistake could leave you open for a crippling attack from your foe makes every dash, every leap and every attack something you need to consider carefully; few fighting games punish you as dramatically as Samurai Shodown (with the possible exception of Square’s underrated Bushido Blade). Samurai Shodown’s controls are relatively simple compared to those of Capcom’s Street Fighter II, largely because the Neo Geo only had four action buttons compared to the six seen on Capcom’s arcade game. SNK has tweaked things a little here by giving players weak, medium and strong attack strengths, along with a button for kicking – a cheeky move which can often help surprise and unbalance stubborn opponents. Having more granular control over the power of your weapon attacks gives the game additional depth, and this is supplemented by the famous ‘Rage Gauge’, which can be ‘popped’ when it’s full once per match to make your fighter more potent for a limited period.
In this enhanced state, you’ll also be able to unleash the new ‘Lightning Blade’ attack, which – along with Super Specials (which, again, can only be used once per match) – trigger a cool cinematic animation that calls to mind the eye-popping supers from Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter V. Some of these super-powerful special moves do feel like they unbalance the game slightly – especially when you consider how easy they are to execute – but learning how to deal with them is all part of the challenge. Of course, fighting games live or die by the selection of characters they offer, and the good news is that Samurai Shodown’s somewhat modest cast of 16 fighters offers plenty of variety and challenge, even for veterans of the franchise. It’s also worth noting that the three all-new combatants (Darli Dagger, Yashamaru Kurama and Wu-Ruixiang) who rub shoulders with the 13 returning cast members (Charlotte, Earthquake, Galford, Genjuro Kibagami, Hanzo Hattori, Haohmaru, Jubei Yagyu, Kyoshiro Senryo, Nakoruru, Shiki, Tam Tam, Yoshitora Tokugawa and Ukyo Tachibana) are a fairly likeable trio, and SNK is supporting the game with additional characters via a DLC campaign. Hisame Shizumaru from Samurai Shodown III is free, but the other fighters who make up the ‘Season One’ DLC pack – Rimururu, Kubikiri Basara, Kazuki Kazama and Wan Fu – will cost you real money.
