All About SNK Head to Head Fighting Games 91-00 - A Quick Look

I've mentioned this book several times before and i've always meant to do a write up but have never found the time.

Whilst browsing a review on Amazon for another art book i noticed a video review (more like a flick through the book), which i thought was a pretty good idea, and considering the size of this book i thought it'd make more sense to try doing that.

It's a fairly long video, i've had to split it into two video files to fit it onto Youtube, and i've intentionally not narrated along the video clip as i don't like the sound of my own voice.

As you can guess the book covers pretty much every fighting game made by SNK (not including stuff made by second/third party companies like ADK, etc) between 91-00. Which is pretty much up until the time of their bankruptcy and before they returned as Playmore and then SNKP.

This is actually the second book in the A.A Game History Series, the first book covers Capcom Fighting Games instead, though this is the only one i own.

Anyways enjoy the vids:

If there's any particular section you're interested in seeing, let me know and i'll try and get some photos up.


  1. Thank you.

    I really liked the video and enjoy all the images.

    I'll put it on my blog.

  2. The sound of your own voice is different in tape rather than when you hear yourself speak... This happens because normally one hears his own voice through the bones (namely, the jaw) and in that travel of "tongue -> bone -> ear" the quality of the sound is slightly distorted. That means that when you hear yourself in a tape you don't happen to hear to that distortion so it sounds kinda different.... Then again if you sound like Gilligan from Gilligan's Island, then there is nothing more to be said.

    Priceless vids.
