Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – Korea Vids, Law/Paul and Baek/Hwoarang GREAT Combos, Jin Omen Stance

by Rip

Lots of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 footage out there, so here’s a little roundup of some of the highlights. First off, Korea got their hands on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and LdBob was there to capture some footage for us. Second, a couple clips of special team combos (Law/Paul and Baek/Hwoarang) were capped and released. It looks like these combos do a HUGE chunk of damage considering the number of hits in them. Third, there is an awesome compilation video that shows regular Jin still has his Omen stance. The video shows off the moves he can do including his TEKKEN 4 Laser Scraper (that ends with the hook fist instead of the straight uppercut!). I really hoped to never see that in a Tekken game ever again, but at least it doesn’t look like he can charge it up! Check them all out after the jump

Tekken 6 – Just Frame Natural Combos

by Rip

CONTEST CLOSED! Winner will be notified by email! Aside from the typical just frame moves in the game, there are apparently other just frame combos. Kane has just posted a video showing Lili connecting her b+2,1 into backturned 1,2. From his testing it seems that it only works on a limited amount of characters. More interesting to me is that its done by delaying the second hit of b+2,1. The strange part of course is that it doesn’t seem to change the frame data or else it would work on a lot more characters right? He also linked me to a Baek example that shows many strings that are guaranteed when delayed correctly.

So why does this work? Best explanation/response in the comments gets a high five and a free LUYG iPhone app (contest ends October 5th. Approximate grand prize value $0.99!!!):
