Grudge Match: Sandman vs Rhino

This is one would be a great fight. I'm not sure if anything like it has ever been done in the comics...but it is a fight I would like to see. I think Sandman  could beat Rhino because he is more powerful and let's face it...he is smarter than Rhino.

WIP Video Updates

Some of you may have seen some of these videos, but some of you may not have. I am posting this because we had a late addition to CVG's Thanksgiving Day event for Day 3 and though perhaps these videos were missed by some of you as well.

Survive This: Sandman

I think that most people would agree that Sandman is one of the best characters for MUGEN ever! This one is really fun to use. I wanted to see how long I could last in Survival mode.

Grudge Match: Sandman vs Bane

If Sandman ever did fought Bane, I think Sandman would win. Sandman is almost indestructable and while Bane is super strong, it's really hard to hurt Sandman in any significant way. I'll have to give this one to Sandman.

CVG's Thanksgiving, Day 3

Thank you all for making yesterday such a success. I think Guy Gardner is shaping up nicely as you could see in the beta release. And you got to love a new style of stage being released by Los Tha Don. CVG's appreciation also goes out to Heka and the CFAS team to give us a couple more things to host too. Finally, what an awesome display in that Supergirl video...just wow.

Now we have some good news and bad news...bad news first. Our original planned finale is going to fall short a little from initial plans. CVG's intentions were to release not one, but two brand new characters for you in Batman and Batman Beyond. There was also a plan for the Legends of the Dark Knight Screenpack release. But unfortunately, technical issues prevented all of those things from happening. But that leads into the good news to be discussed after the break.
Thanksgiving Release Event Day 3

The good news is, expect our Christmas event to be even that much more epic as all of those things will be ready by then. Not to mention a bunch of other things we are planning for you. Our hope is to make it our biggest event yet. So keep an eye on us for all that until then.
Discuss it all here

A look at phase 2 of the new Bane for the Legends of the Dark Knight Project. Also a sneak peek at some new intros for Batman at the tail end. Also check out the some new features in the screen pack. Set to the 1992 classic from KMFDM "Go to Hell" Fitting for a world traveling gun for hire like Bane. Take the following link to discuss the video: Bane Preview Video

In a surprise release, aa250, the best Mugen News Reporter anywhere who happens to also report for CVG United, has broken into the creation business. He has been working very hard for 4 monthes to fix Kong's Magneto. When you follow the link, you will see all of the updates he made:
Take this link to discuss Magneto by Kong and aa250


I'm sure most of you loved the updates Jor El came up with for his previous stages that we showed off on Day 1. Well, this is his first brand new release in a very long time. It is still a WIP, but he was so excited about it, he wanted to release the beta version. You all will recognize it from the Phoenix preview video also shown on Day 1. Tell us what you think about the stage here:
Discuss the Asteroid M release

Did you know that trexrell is brand new to sprite editing? You wouldn't know it with his incredible work on Vixen as not only does she look great, but he works so fast. Then toss in the fact that his actual fiance Yin has caught the same creation bug, and you see the great progress shown in this video. Can't wait to see more from this pair on her and anything else they work on in the future. You can find the WIP topic here:
Vixen by trexrell and Yin


Among CVG's many blessings we are truly thankful for is being good friends with Mugen Superhero Zvitor. He has been gracious enough to allow us not only to use his awesome Spiderman in the Crisis project, but now we can officially host him here as well. Thank you Zvitor! To talk about all this, follow the link:
Spiderman by zvitor now hosted here

CVG's Thanksgiving, Day 2

Lots of stuff yesterday, so I hope you had as much fun as we did. I like the new banners, board icons and those new games. Not to mention the videos looked great too. And every single one of those stage updates by Jor El were incredible. Below you will see what is on tap for today.
Thanksgiving Release Event Day 2

Many of you liked that preview video of the latest beta of Guy Gardner. Well, that was just a prelude to this release. He is much more complete, but JasonTodd still has further plans for him, hence the beta tag remaining. To download him, click the image of Guy Gardner above. And to discuss this release, go here: Guy Gardner Beta Released!

Los Tha Don, our GFX Admin not only makes incredible avatars (go request one now from him) and banners, but he has also taken to making stages. His favorite style of stage creation is in Hi-Res and adding a distant aspect so as more of the stage can be seen and to give a better look. His very first stage in this manner is his TMNT Dojo. To download, click it's image or: Follow this link

Check out this amazing video of Supergirl by Toni. He was kind enough to make this exclusively for our party. We already know he is an incredible sprite artist as she looks as if she was ripped directly from the cartoon series, but seeing her in action looks that much more sweet! Supergirl by Toni WIP

JasonTodd has told us he wants to run a unique contest for the rest of the year. He will choose one general forum member who has proven themselves to be the most active regarding a presence here at CVG United and allow them to choose a comic character that he will then create. That sounds like it could be quite interestering. JasonTodd's Create a Character for you Contest

Early on in CVG United's history, we formed a pretty tight relationship with Nestor and his Capcom Fighting Allstars project. This has not only led to his both projects sharing a couple characters in the future but him allowing us to host an exciting recent release of his, Viewtiful Joe. Thank you Nestor! To get him, click the image above or: Download him here

One of my favorite stages released not too long ago was Star Labs by Heka and kain the supreme. Well, they have been gracious enough to allow us to host this great looking stage. To download it, click the image above or: Click here

Survive This: Savage Hulk

I wanted to see how long I could last using one of my favorite versions of the Hulk in Survival Mode for MUGEN. This is the version of Savage Hulk you can get it from Buyog's website.

CVG's Thanksgiving, Day 1

Welcome to our Thanksgiving Release Celebration!

We are so glad you came by our corner of the internet to check us out. This first day will provide prelude to a memorable occasion as you'll get all kinds of goodies from us.

The first thing you'll notice is some new things for the forum. Most importantly, new smileys, better arcade games and a brand new function allowing you to watch your favorite anime episodes in the forum! Talk about all this here: CVG's Thanksgiving Release Event Day 1

So much new content, we needed a new Team member to help us out. Congrats to JDubbsIII for becoming our new Global Moderator. Discuss this here

Our biggest release(s) for the day involves our brand new Team CVG member, Jor El. We are so fortunate to have him be a part of our team as he's always been considered a true legend regarding making comic centric Mugen stages. He took it upon himself to not only allow us to host his stages, but to also update them just for us. To find out what the actual updates are and their download locations, click the image above or take this link: Jor El's Updated Stages

You know you love The Arlequin's Spawn WIP. Well, get ready to fall in love with his next project, Dante. This is got to be one of the best looking Devil May Cry characters that will soon be gracing your Mugen roster. To discuss your thoughts on this, either click one of the images above, or take this link: Dante by The Arlequin

I know you all are excited about Legendkaos' amazing work on this lady as much as I am. Well, this video will give you a sneak peek at what is very close to the final version of her. Speaking of previews, check out that brand new WIP stage by Jor El which will be his first new stage release in quite awhile...and made specifically for Phoenix. To discuss this video and the character, take this link: Phoenix by LegendKaos

JasonTodd has been hard at work to bring our second Green Lantern here at CVG more to life for you all. New animations, new features, I can't wait to get my hands on that latest beta of Guy Gardner. By the way, check out Jor El's updated Lantern Warzone in the video as well. To talk more about this video and when you might see this beta, follow this link: Green Lantern Guy Gardner

Grudge Match: Rhino vs Bane

I think Bane would win this one. plain and simple.The Rhino just doesn't have what it takes to beat Bane. I put the fight together in Watch mode for MUGEN.

Apologies from Volzzilla

I'd like to apologize for being a little absent here late. Doing whatever with CVG is very time consuming, not to mention, I have every day stresses in real life like the rest of you.

I've been busy trying to organize a few things, including something I'll talk about later in this message. Not to mention the fact I've been trying (emphasis on trying, add the descriptor futile attempts) to break into sprite editing. It's very hard. I promise you there are three very exciting WIP Focus articles coming soon...all thats left is the editing.

Also, Mugen Madness 2.0 sort of got forgotten here. Many at CVG know what happened, but here is the fight for the rest of you:

Onto that announcement....

That's right, having a big Thanksgiving release party starting tomorrow and it will last through til the actual Turkey day, which will be the big finale. Hope to see you all at CVG United!

Mugen: Bishop

I mean to do a post like this a long time ago. There does exist an excellent Mugen character based on Bishop. He was made by WuCash - a really excellent creator. This one is fun! I enjoy using him a great deal.

Grudge Match: Batman vs Predator

I was inspired. I remember reading the original Batman vs Predator comic back in the mid-1990's and the first sequel. It was a good book. I still have my first printings. The things is I recently have found a fan film depicting Batman fighting Aliens and Predator -  8 minutes of awesome. It's well done.  Extremely well done. I've embedded the film below - it could easily be turned into a movie. Following the film is my staged fights in MUGEN. The first fight is Infinity Mugen Team's Batman vs Predator and then Alucard's Batman vs the same version of Predator.

Grudge Match: Hulk vs Rhino

I always enjoy reading Rhino and Hulk fights. I'd love to see it done in animation. Such a fight could only end in one way: Hulk Smash! The most could really do is anger the Hulk only making the beat down worse.

Survive This: Cyclops

This is not the latest version of Cyclops, but it is one of my favorite MUGEN characters. I decided to play through Survival mode in MUGEN.

Websites To Visit: Buyog's Lair: Buyog2099's Mugen Creation

Here is a website that is a must visit! Buyog's MUGEN site is not just a place to find great characters, but being a Mugen creator and a wonderful programmer, Ryan (aka Buyog), often gives insights into his creative process and decisions on the site's accompanying blog.  If you love MUGEN and have never seen his site, I truly suggest you visit his site...repeatedly.

Visit his site!

Grudge Match: Hulk vs Bane

To be honest I really think that the Hulk would mop the floor with Bane.  It would be messy. In strength, Bane's body would fail no matter how much Venom he pumped into himself. Hulk is way out of Venom's class.

Survive This: Bishop

Here is me putting Bishop through in Mugen Survival mode. The character is a lot of fun!

Grudge Match - Storm vs Starfire

Okay I admit it: I think Storm would wipe the sky with Starfire. Why? Storm can wield the full power of the earth's climate: lightning, wind, rain, snow, and hail would be able to put Starfire down - if used appropriately and Storm is very good at what she does combined with her fighting skills.

Grudge Match: Hal Jordon vs John Stewart

Green Lantern/Green Arrow #87, the first appea...Image via Wikipedia
I'm not sure how this would go. Hal Jordon is the best known human Green Lantern, but I admit I like John Stewart better. I think Hal Jordon would win because of his experience. I decided to try staging a fight.

Survive This: Green Lantern (Hal Jordon)

The version of Green Lantern that Buyog was involved in creating, is beyond cool. And fun to use. I decided to see how good it would be to use it in Survival mode. Here is a video showing what happened:

Grudge Match - Ms Marvel vs Starfire

If Ms Marvel fought Starfire
I think the battle would be astounding. Not really able to say who would win. I think that that Ms Marvel would win because I think that she is harder and willing to fight to the end. I decided to stage a fight in MUGEN.

Survive This: Robin

I really like this version of Robin. I decided to see how long I can last in Survival mode. This character is tons of fun!
