There are several key gameplay Mechanics unique to Big Bang Beat
P-Gauge: The P-Gauge is placed directly under the Health Bar, and monitors usage of special moves. Whenever a special move (or, in versions after 1.01, the strong attack) is used, this meter depletes. If a move would consume an amount of power that is greater than what is available, it cannot be performed. This meter automatically fills, or can be filled faster by using the game’s “Charge” feature, which leaves the player vulnerable to attack. As the player loses health, the P-Gauge can “fill in” the empty parts of the Health Bar, thus allowing the player to use more specials if his/her life is low.
Attack Power Correction Value: Represented by a number near the center of the screen. When the P-Gauge is full, by holding the “Charge” button and rapidly pushing the directional buttons, the player can sacrifice health for increased damage from all of his/her character’s attacks. The maximum value places attacks at 199% power and leaves the character with 1 health point.
B-Power Gauge: The game’s “Super Bar.” This bar is filled either by attacking the opponent or by picking up stones dropped by attacked opponents, known as “B Stones.” When the number on the bar (called the “B-Power Stock”) is 100 or higher, the player can execute one of several techniques that depend on this gauge:
- B Power Arts: The term for this game’s “Super Moves.” All B Power Arts cost 1 stock.
- B Dash: An advanced version of the character’s Dash. It is much faster, and has the ability to cancel any move type, allowing for more combo opportunities. Costs 1 stock.
- B Counter: Activated by pushing the “B” button while blocking an opponent’s attack. Allows the user to ignore block stun, and follow up with a counterattack. Costs 1 stock
- B Escape: Allows the player to escape being attacked. This drains a significant amount of power compared to the other movements above. Costs 4 stocks.
- Air Dash (1.01 only): In the first release, air dashing removed a small amount of B-Power. Every version thereafter borrows from the P-Gauge instead.
- Big Bang Break (1.02 on): A powerful move that can only be performed in character unique situations, usually by canceling a specific B Power Art with a special command. Costs two stocks.
An interesting note in this Gauge’s history is that the first release had 9 levels of power, while every version after this only featured 5.
Enhance: Basically the equivalent of a taunt. Any character can use an enhance three times per fight at maximum, except for Heita who can use it six times. The effects of the enhance vary wildly from character to character, and can be as minuscule as damage tweaks to a single move (Ren) or transformation into a new character (Heita).
The story of Vigilante 8: 2nd Offense centers on the international meddlings of an oil conglomerate from the future known as OMAR (Oil Monopoly Alliance Regime).
After finding an electronic armband in a service station bathroom, former Vigilante Slick Clyde rose to be controlled by OMAR. Working up through the ranks of command he soon came to be the CEO of OMAR itself and made a complete monopoly on all oil trades with the sole exception of the United States.
With the help of his student and hitman, Obake, he steals the technology to allow him to travel through time. Taking with him Obake and his cybernetic assassin, Dallas 13, he makes the jump back to 1970s to cripple the United States and bring OMAR to total domination.
Appearing in 1970s, the three vehicles encounter Convoy, the former leader of the Vigilantes. Upon seeing him, the three cars open fire.
>Manhunt is a stealth game developed by Rockstar Games, it was released November 18, 2003 for the PlayStation 2 video game console, and April 20, 2004 for Xbox and PC. Although it was generally well-received by critics, Manhunt created a controversy due to the graphic violence the player is encouraged to engage in. This resulted in the game being banned in several countries and implicated by media in a murder, although this implication was later rejected by the police.
In October 2007, its sequel, Manhunt 2 was released to a similar level of controversy. As of March 26, 2008, the Manhunt franchise has sold 1.7 million copies according to Take-Two Interactive.

With 2002’s WWE Raw PC being the only viable Wrestling PC game around, the game filled a void for many players who could now have a real wrestling PC game. but that void lasted for six years, although there was many mods coming out, there was not yet a FULL conversion of the entire game, (WWE Raw: Ultimate Edition was aiming for this but was never released). Later RMU released Raw Legend edition and Raw Total Edition which were pretty good.
WWE Raw (also known as WWF Raw) is a video game released on the Xbox console and the PC by THQ in 2002. All copies of the PC port and later copies of the Xbox original were titled WWE Raw due to the World Wrestling Federation‘s lawsuit with the World Wildlife Fund, causing the former to change their name to WWE (although the in-game logos still carried the WWF logo). The game was succeeded on the Xbox by WWE Raw 2 in 2003.
