Multiple Shaq Fu Trademarks Filed By Shaq.Com Owner

shHmm… something is going on with Shaquille O’Neal and fighting games. Siliconera discovered multiple trademarks for Shaqfighter filed by Mine O’Mine which owns Shaq.com back in May.

 

Mine O’Mine just registered four different trademarks for Shaq Fu, the name of the ’90s fighting game where Shaq travels to Japan and gets sucked into another dimension. The Shaq Fu trademarks cover video games, computer software, video game characters, electronics action games, playing cards, and online games. These might be protective trademarks, but filling so many trademarks for a defunct game and the new Shaqfighter one is unusual.

 

Well, not as unusual as this!

    Everywhere I go on the internet all I see is hate towards Shaq Fu. Am I the only one who liked this game? I think it was awesome on the Amiga 500.

    • http://eonhack.blogspot.com theclaw

      Few of us know about that, Amiga was a commercial failure in the US.

      • sakusakusakura_nyo

        One of my friends had an Amiga when I was in fifth grade and I thought it was the weirdest thing ever. I’ve never even seen one in a store.

      I’m sure like other kusoge, there are those who see it as a guilty pleasure.

      I never played it, but It’s an interesting piece relating to celebrities in gaming.

    • PreyMantis

      I think it’s cuz AVGN reviewed it. Even if people never played the game, as long as it’s reviewed by AVGN, it apparently sucks.

      • Tom

        Not just AVGN. Before his review there was a guy who wanted to collect all SNES cartridges and destroy it. I don’t know why. I found the graphics really good, there weren’t too many sounds but they naild them I thing.

        • Juan Andrés Valencia

          The visuals are amazing but that’s it. The game haves some of the worst controls I’ve seen in a fighting game.

      Well, back when I was a kid I remember beating the game and all, it was sure fun and while the story is odd I liked the characters and some songs.
      But now that I’ve tried it again somehow I can’t get used to the controls, it’s pretty clunky and the moves are not intuitive.

    • Charles

      I’ve finally found others who also liked Shaq-fu. My people!

    • Tatsuya1221

      Shaq-fu is a bad game, no debating that, that said just because it’s a bad game doesn’t mean it’s terrible, i like the movie flash gordon, a movie that is without a doubt a bad movie, but it’s still awesome.

      Shaq-fu’s music is great, and it’s strangeness is quirky, but i could never get past the control scheme to become a fan of it, that said i can understand how people could enjoy it.

  • Warboss Aohd

    pfffffffft, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Oh God, why would you even bother trademarking this unless………your going……..to make…..a game of it.

    ………..they aren’t seriously going to make another one…….right?

  • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

    Oh god I hope this is all one big joke because if it isn’t I’m going to be pissed. So many good game property’s cant cant make returns let alone re releases yet this turd can.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ohhh boy. Shaq’s return lol.^_^

    Shaq travels to Japan and gets sucked into a moe-moe dating sim.

    I’d play it.

      Alternately: an otome game with basketball stars.

        Jordan-senpaiiii!

          “Magical Girl” Johnson

  • Vesperion

    Shaq-Fu for Xbox live/ PSN with all Shaq named Achievements/ Trophies

    • DesmaX

      I would definitely Shaq it out

  • SirRichard

    We may actually be on the cusp of witnessing the revival of Shaq Fu.

    What an age to be living in.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    Let’s go Shaq. Why be satisified as a singer and basketball player when you can also punch polygons?

  • KnifeAndFork

    I hope it’s a JRPG

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Its happening!

  • DCBlackbird

    as a game Shaq Fu is trash as a part of my memories it is priceless

  • Bunzi

    Not seeing what’s so bad about this. Animation is fluid, the characters are kinda charming in their way, and it doesn’t seem to play any worse than half the shovelware fighters that came out around than.

    But. y’ know. The internet.

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    Shaq-Fu 2: FU 2 on the Frostbite 3 engine would be amazing

  • Solomon_Kano

    Awwwww Shaq.

  • shuyai

    i am alway surprise at the size of him when you see he stand next to normal people its almost surreal. he is so huge he can almost appear as a titan on “attack on titan” show

  • TheExile285

    Please no….

    • ShadowDivz

      Your despair eggs them on.

  • Abend

    They Better call it Shaq Attaq

  • TheMasterHam

    The legend lives on.
