Get Ready For The Next Battle, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Review.

By: cinderkin Sep 12, 2012 | 269 Views | 3 Comments

Get ready for the next battle, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is finally here. Is it worth your money? Find out in the Gouki.com Review. Don’t be a Jimmy!

The time has come to pull out all the stops and do battle in the latest Tekken Tag Tournament. This time it’s bigger, better, and all around more badass than ever before. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT 2) is filled with over 50 fighters, new stages, new combos, and more. The latest 3D fighting game has made it to consoles, but is it worth your money though? Read on below.

TTT 2 offers a ton of game modes for you to spend hours upon hours in. Arcade mode returns as well as Ghost Battle which pits you against and unlimited amount of opponents’ ghost data as you rank up your fighter from Beginner to Tekken Lord. Time Attack, Survival, Versus, Practice, and for the first time in a fighting game Fight Lab. If you’ve ever felt like a fighting game was just too hard to get into because the moves look to complex or you just don’t understand the game mechanics, well then you have nothing to worry about with TTT 2. Fight Lab is a fleshed out tutorial system which allows you to learn the basics as well as the advanced mechanics of the game. It teaches you the ins and outs of the game, from high and low attacks, defense, tagging, launchers and ground bounces, and side stepping, as well as allowing you to fully customize your own fighter named Combot. Fight Lab truly is a groundbreaking feature that more fighting games need to implement.

Although TTT 2 has a ton of offline modes to choose from, online is where it thrives. Tekken 6 suffered with a really bad and unplayable online experience. Namco Bandai has put a ton of effort into making sure TTT 2 has the online longevity and I say that it truly nails it in every way. There are two game modes right now which are Ranked and 8 slot lobby Player matches. The flow of the menus are amazing, rarely can you find a game which allows for match after match without being kicked back to a menu. While you wait for an opponent the game allows you to practice your moves while you wait. When an opponent is found the game shows you the players’ connection to you and gives you the option to opt in or out, this is a great addition because everyone hates having matches in lag. Speaking of lag TTT 2 doesn’t have any, with the ability to set your search options to only connect to players with great ping you won’t have to worry about lag at all. I even did 20 matches with a friend who lives on the other side of the US and is known for having a really poor connection (unplayable) with zero lag. Whichever netcode is being used here is by far the best in the genre.

The gameplay is so smooth and the animations are clean. This game is filled with thousands of moves with no slow down whatsoever. Although a Tag fighting game TTT 2 allows you to pick between either 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, or 2 vs 1 including pair play for online. I’ve noticed that solo play is much stronger than tag play, although I see this being possibly changed in an update. Every character can be partnered up with another and some have special tag combos and tag throws when properly paired. With over 50 fighters including almost every single fighter from the Tekken franchise you have a ton of tag team options to choose from.

TTT 2 is an absolutely beautiful game in every sense of the word, fighters looked detailed as well as the stages. These aren’t your ordinary stages either, with stages from all over the world. Some have crazy backgrounds like the festival parade with floats, or the high school with all the students cheering you on. Fighters actually get dirty during matches as well. The details behind this game are phenomenal. Each fighter can also be fully customized with clothing, weapons, and special effects. There are hundreds of costumes to choose from all included without costing extra. The game even lets you save up to 10 different costumes for each fighter.

The games audio shines as well. Every fighter speaks in their native tongue which is a nice touch for authenticity. Each stage has music that really gets you in the mood to kick someone’s ass, including the newly implemented Tekken Tunes which allows you to fully customize the games soundtrack to your liking. Not only does this allow you to choose the music from the game to edit, but you can even take tracks from your favorite albums and put them into the game. Feel like fighting to Rock, Rap, Country, or the theme song to Pokémon you now have that option. Tekken Tunes is an awesome feature and more games should implement it.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 damn near has everything a fighting game should have. No game of the genre has come close to what TTT 2 has done.  They really nailed this game and even if you aren’t familiar with the 3D fighting game style, with modes like Fight Lab you can’t go wrong. Although not my favorite fighting game series, I can’t deny that this game is the best in the genre. Namco Bandai has raised the bar for all other companies to follow. If you love fighting games you’ll love this game. If you like fighting games you’ll love this game. If you hate fighting games you’ll love this game. It has so much content and should be awarded for offering this much. We Are Tekken!

4 More characters comfirmed for Tekken Tag Tournament 2

By: Arthvader Jul 6, 2012 | 100 Views | 5 Comments

Four more returning characters are making their way back into Tekken Tag 2. Can you guess who they are?

Today, Namco-Bandai announced on their EU YouTube channel four new characters for Tekken Tag Tournament 2. Here's the trailer, showing the four new, returning characters:

 

Here's the description from the YouTube video about the four characters, straight from Namco Bandai's offiical youtube page:

Forest is the son of Marshall Law. He has been training at his father's dojo since childhood, and some even say that his martial arts skills exceed those of his father's. Paul Phoenix has taken a liking to Forest, and they often get in trouble together.

A deinonychus trained for military purposes, Alex is a vicious animal that was created by extracting dinosaur DNA from an insect trapped in amber, with gaps in the DNA filled in with genetic data from Roger. Alex does not seem fully mature yet, but currently has about the same fighting strength as Roger. Alex will become an extremely powerful animal once he fully matures.

A prototype version of Jack developed in Russia. After learning of Jack's upgrades, P-Jack requested an upgrade from Dr. Bosconovitch, as well. Dr. Bosconovitch complied by adding a rotation function to P-Jack's limbs, as well as flight capabilities. P-Jack loves sunglasses, and they have become his trademark.

Tiger is a mysterious man who entered the "The King of Iron Fist Tournament" dressed in clothes inspired by the golden age of soul music. His polished capoeira moves look quite similar to those used by Eddy, but the nature of the relationship between these two fighters remains a mystery.

Tekken takes the big screen with a Vengeance (UPDATED!)

By: neiogeo Aug 14, 2011 | 641 Views | 7 Comments

"Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D" premiered for one night only in select theaters early this month and I got a chance to witness Namco-Bandai's first CG motion picture...Is this hot franchise's big screen debut the new hotness, or a hot mess?

Trailer 1

Trailer 2

Tekken. The movie. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard that one before. Heck, Tekken's been in pretty much al kinds of media, from Manga to Novels, to Anime.To movie-going gamers, the mere thought of a "videogame adaptation" is cringe-worthy, and with good reason: Hollywood’s yet to get the videogame formula right. After years of hits (Resident Evil, Mortal Kombat, Silent Hill) and misses(Street Fighter:The Legend of Chun Li, Max Payne) has someone finally discovered the cure to videogame necrosis?

The Story

"Tekken: Blood Vengeance" is set between the storylines of Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection and Tekken 6. Heihachi Mishima’s death has left the Mishima Zaibatsu in chaos. Jin Kazama and Kazuya Mishima lead a secret war against each other, and the Devil Gene’s secret is about to be revealed by either man’s company. Standing in their way is Ling Xiaoyu, a transfer student from Mishima Tech, on a mission to seek out an extraordinary young man named “Shin Kamiya” and learn what she can about him. Along the way, she meets Alisa Bosconovitch, an overly friendly foreign exchange student, who also happens to be after the guy in question. What she learns about the Mishima bloodline, and the Devil gene itself, will change everything she knew about her world, the Tekken Tournament, and those she interacts with.

The Goods

Does Tekken deliver? In one word: yes. Tekken is all about going big and going hard, which is precisely what this movie does. From the introduction, we see that this movie's not messing around, with plenty of martial arts, slow-mo pans, and things going boom all around us. The 3D actually helps the film by enhancing the scenery. Not once will there be any awkward pop-up or annoying booger(i.e. object blocking our view) in the scene; our attention is diverted towards the middle at all times. A good example is during a fight between protagonist Xiaoyu and Alisa that just goes nuts after we discover Alisa's "hidden talent" - the action is always the focus of the camera and any collateral damage is neatly caught witihin our field of vision.

What about the hardcore fans? What's in it for them? plenty. While the entire Tekken roster is absent from this one, the ones who matter are showcased in grand fashion. Jin, Kazuya, Nina, Anna, Xiaoyu, Alisa, Panda and even some cameo appearances from Ganryu and Lee, are all included. While the dubbing was hit or miss at times, the cast meshed quite nicely with one another. We've heard Nina and Anna speak in english, the other characters, like Jin and Kazuya, debuted their english accents with style and point; these were the main characters and you knew it. They had presence, even if they only spring into action at the film's climax....and what a lovely climax it is. It's then that you know you're watching not only a Tekken movie, but a full-length feature film: the scope of the movie goes beyond what you'd expect out of a direct-to-dvd film and grants you one hell of a thrill ride. Make no mistake about it: Namco Bandai/Digital Frontier made sure this film's climax was unforgetable.

The Catch

As a film, Tekken:BD is amazing. As a precursor to Tekken 6, it's a step in the right direction. Like every videogame side story, Tekken fills in some deep plotholes while making brand new ones. Xiaoyu's involvement with Jin is always questioned, but never elaborated on. The new guy Shin Kamiya, is introduced, but never really "introduced" even if the circumstances don't really play out in his favor. We learn about the vicious Devil Gene and its' origins, but not about how the MIshimas come in contact with it. We get an explanation about Nina and Anna's conflict, but it's really random and cliche'd. Also, like every foreign animated film, there's a lot lost in translation here; mannerisms, gestures, and sayings get lost in the shuffle, leading to some awkward situations and the occaisional double-entendre. You'll laugh, but not always at the comedy. Still, most of these are small details in comparison with the overall picture.

The Verdict

"Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D" does what it's supposed to: entertain you with dazzling visuals, vivid, colorful set pieces, and amaze you with incredible feats of skill and technique. It's a roller coaster of a movie that'll keep you on the edge of your seat, only because you want to see what happens next. If you're a fan of fighting games, Tekken, or heck, even CG movies, I highly recommend you give this one a go when it's released as part of "Tekken Hybrid" later this year.

 

Tekken Hybrid, Coming to PS3/ Blu-Ray Winter 2011

UPDATE (8/17/11)

Namco-Bandai just released a trailer showcasing early footage of "Tekken 3D Prime Edition" which will also include "Tekken: Blood Vengeance 3D" for viewing on the Nintendo 3DS.
