    Such a sick game that I'm terrible at...

    This was the whole schedule: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet...Zu-Sn8LUgTAij6eBInT3yWmH1w/edit#gid=262235555

    There was this other side scrolling beat em up game: "Shen Jian" that I had never seen or heard of before and after watching the run I wanna play it.

    IGS games:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Games_System

    Taiwanese mob who made some cracking late 90s and early 00s games. They were heavily encrypted, so they didn't show up well emulated until the last few years.

    I was lucky enough to work at a place that bought and sold arcade games for a while, and got to play a bunch of these before they showed up in MAME. Really high quality graphics, and good solid fun gameplay reminiscent of Final Fight 2/3 and Sengoku 3 style brawlers (not quite as sophisticated as something like Streets of Rage 2 or Capcom's Dungeons and Dragons, but still really good).

    The "Knights of Valour" series as well as the "Oriental Legend" series are some of their more famous titles.

    They also make a fun Metal Slug clone called "Demon Front".

    [edit]

    Moar!

    This video cracks me up every time I watch it. Nails a dozen tropes so succinctly.
