Any game that lets you slap Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh in the face. Repeatedly. With large concrete blocks.

I have an idea to try and make this using MUGEN at some point... :D
Oh yes, Now this I like a lot but you got to include The Tall man with his sentinals and Ash from the Evil Dead, would be nice to see him in a good game for a change....

I wouldn't have Ghost Face though. You could have Leprechaun in it, Pinhead and maybe a couple of the other original cenobites and Chucky.

Problem is the game would probably cost £300 to pay for all the licenses.

My favourite TV based would include getting to ‘retire’ the entire cast of east-enders and Corry though ;)
If you mean "Guyver", that would be brill, but it would be more likely based on the anime series as opposed to the crap 1st film (Mark Hammil... sod off) or the major improvement that was Dark Hero (David Hayter... return to acting!)

A good Star Wars beat'em up would be great, but it would have to be a damn site better thean the Masters of Teras Kasi (or something like that)on the PS1.

Would also like a Final Fantasy fighter with characters from different games (again would need to be better than PS1's Ergheiz).

Or what about a Kingdom Hearts fighter where you can give Mickey Mouse a slap :wink:

Better still Warner Bros. vs Looney Tunes vs Disney
vs Hannah Barbera


Scooby Doo & Shaggy vs censored Dastardley & Muttley

Daffy Duck vs Donald Duck

Yogi vs Goofy

The choices could be limitless

Obviously Megatron's super would be turning into a gun and being fired by starscream.
And optimus could run people over.
And no I'm not a geek.

Well maybe a little.
I'd buy that for a dollar :wink: but I might ask the peeps at AM2 to do it using the VF2 engine, that'd be sweet, I think chunky 3d graphics would suit it better
Well capcom have made a fighting game with gaint robots called Tech Romancer. Further more they have done several really good Vitrua On knock-off's using the Gundam licence on the PS2 which are fantastic and can be picked up cheaply.

Capcom didn't do any Gundam games, I thought it was Bandai.

Gundam Smhundam. Pah, if it aint Transformers it doesn't count!
And don't anyone be going on about how transformers are all licenced from other jap robot series - if it's not actually Optimus and crew it's not as cool.
And Tech Romancer was as crap as star gladiator.
Capcom should just stick to 2D.
