Tekken 7 extended trailer is twice as overdramatic

I can't believe Liam Neeson has already made seven of these. There was a trailer for this recently, but this Comic-Con trailer is twice and long, therefore twice as good. You can say, "It's not about the length of the trailer, it's how you use it" all you like, but it's a half truth.  Also, please never say Heihachi again.

For whatever reason, AOL accidentally let the cat out of the bag about Tekken 7, which is going to be running on Unreal Engine 4, and now we have a big ol' trailer for the game. Meanwhile, in a different game about guys with dumb hair hitting each other, Raiden has been revealed for Mortal Kombat X, and he seems to have a very loose understanding of what thunder can and can't block out.

EVO 2014 recap: Here's who won photo
EVO 2014 recap: Here's who won
by Jordan Devore

And just like that, another EVO has come and gone. What a weekend.

Despite not playing fighting games much myself, I'll never miss watching the year's big tournament. The audience's energy, the drama that unfolds on stage -- it never ceases to amaze.

If you missed out on the grand finals for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Ultra Street Fighter IV, or any of the other featured games, look no further.

You're gonna want to watch that BlazBlue final.

Here's the Tekken 7 trailer we've all been waiting for

It's about time we get another Tekken game. Despite the fact that my last true favorite Tekken game was Tekken 3 with Hwoarang, Eddy, and Jin, the official Tekken 7 trailer still has me sufficiently excited. However, bizarre...

EVO 2013: Results, highlights, and all the hype photo
EVO 2013: Results, highlights, and all the hype
by Wesley Ruscher

Another year, another Evolution Championship Series under wraps. This year's premiere fighting game tournament was by far the biggest to date boasting over 3,000 participants from over 30 countries, stretching across nine of the most elite games in the genre. 

Three days of non-stop action, that began with some of the most intense semi-final matches to grace the first day of the tournament ever. There were multiple bouts, especially in Super Street Fighter IV Arcade and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that could have easily been grand final championship fights. It was definitely a rollercoaster ride of emotion from start to finish. 

Day three culminated in another justifiably crazy day full of upsets and memorable moments. The amount of heart on display was inspiring. Reigning champs were dethroned and new kings of the stick were crowned. 

Here are the winners and most hype moments of EVO 2013.

In defense of boobies photo
In defense of boobies
by Vito Gesualdi

Let me preface this article by stating a few simple facts. I am a young, white, American male who consumes vast amounts of pornography. As such, I am occasionally drawn to depictions of the female form which are perhaps outside the realm of realism, with silicone implants and soft lighting helping to emphasize certain erotic areas.

Am I ashamed of my interest in these depictions? About as ashamed as anyone might be when discussing their sexual interests. However, I am also a logically thinking adult who understands that real women don’t look anything like the bizarre sexual fantasies on my computer monitor, nor would I want them to.
