Remember that poll that would decide the next brand new character in the Tekken franchise? Well it looks like we have a winner -- the Female Vampire. Right behind her were the "Female Tekken Force" character, and Shin Kamiya,...
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 case you haven't heard, Namco Bandai released a free-to-play version of Tekken on the PlayStation 3 called Tekken Revolution. Producer Katsuhiro Harada recently checked in with fans, and noted that due to the game's popula...
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.
Uriah Hall is a rising middleweight MMA fighter and part of his success can be attributed to, of all things, Tekken. This latest episode of Vice's Fightland follows Uriah as he describes how Tekken helped with his training.
For something that came out of nowhere, Tekken Card Tournament is actually a decent if simplistic little card game. As you're locked in card combat, fighter avatars will jostle about on screen just like the core games with a surprising amount of polish, and the game itself is incredibly easy to pick up.
But that's only half the experience. Littered with obscene microtransaction amounts up to $99.99, typical "beg your friends" Facebook bonuses and an energy system, Tekken Card Tournament's pitiful means of asking you for cash at every turn detract from an otherwise enjoyable affair.
When word about Tekken Card Tournament first got out, it seemed to me like it could easily have been a quick side project for Namco Bandai. I didn't expect it to get this kind of treatment -- just look at the embedded t...
Over on the PlayStation Vita side, Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention and Tekken 6 are now available to handheld owners, with Tekken 6 also free to download on the PlayStation Portable. Remember that thing? The PSP? Sup Marcus!?
With new additions to Plus means some prior titles will be on their way out. This is your last month to check out Guardians of Middle Earth, Quantum Conundrum, Dungeon Defenders, Fooseball 2012 (Vita), and Plants Vs Zombies for free. Each game will be leaving the service on specific dates detailed over on the PlayStation Blog.
Major Nelson and his crazy price-slashing antics continue as we roll into day seven of the surprisingly good Games on Demand sale. This time 'round, the focus is squarely on the fighters.
Some of the genre's biggest nam...
As a nice complement to Square Enix's Final Fantasy sale this week, Namco Bandai also has some discounts for PlayStation gamers going live soon. This is an assorted bunch, with the clear highlight being Artorias of the Abyss ...
Ever since the team's inception, I've been a member of the Ravens Nation. After a quick victory in Super Bowl XXXIV, we've been so close yet so far so many times.
Now, we have another shot in 2013.
I mean, we all know The Ravens are going to win today. Hell, even Madden knows it. But you want to know why? Because these videogames have inspired Ray Lewis and his boys more than any pre-game ritual could ever do.
These are the videogames that are going to take them all the way.
After the Uncharted card game, Namco Bandai's announcement of an impending North American release for Tekken Card Tournament seems all too normal to me. In the coming weeks, the card battle game will be out as a free-to-play ...
EVO 2K13 will be taking place from July 12-14 this year at the Paris Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. As for the games players will be competing in? It will consist of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Street Fighter 4 Arcad...
Tekken isn't what I'd consider a "Nintendo friendly" franchise. No, I'm not referring to the actual content of the games, but the mere existence (lack thereof, rather) of the franchise on Nintendo consoles and portables.
In 2001, there was Tekken Advance and earlier this year, Tekken 3D. In the 18 long years of Tekken's existence, Nintendo has hosted a grand total of two games, both of which had less than savory reception.
Now, it looks like Namco is finally doing it right with Tekken Tag Tournament 2: Wii U Edition.
Whatever it is, I'm in. I love Tekken, and I love card-based games. The combination of the two could be great. It's too bad that we have no idea what 'Tekken Card Tournament' really is, though.
Siliconera found that Namco Bandai filed a trademark for the name in Europe. They're guessing it could be a mobile or social game. Fair guess. What's your guess?
I love how silly Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition is. This serious fighter turns into a Nintendo-themed Tekken playground. Costumes, minigames, oversized noses, Mario bears -- it's all here.
This launch trailer's ...
