MadCatz TE2 Arcade Fightstick Review

by Rip

Our friends over at MadCatz sent over a couple of the Tournament Edition 2 Arcade Fightsticks for us to giveaway as part of our 5 year celebration! The TE2 is one of my favorite sticks and I’ve been using the Killer Instinct TE2 stick for over a year. Now that the new generation of consoles are kicking into high gear, you might need some new hardware, so I figured a review was in order! Check out this review to see how MadCatz has taken their original TE1 design and improved upon it:

Free Training Mode Coming to Tekken Revolution

by Rip

With Tekken Revolution’s free to play release last week, one of the community’s biggest requests has been a training mode. Earlier today on twitter Harada announced via tweet that a Training Mode will be added to Tekken Revolution and it will be free! Will coins be needed though!? Since Harada mentioned that part of the reason they are trying this model is to to grow the player base, it makes sense to give new players a place to hone their skills before losing their blue coins and tickets! If you’re interested in the MadCatz interview with Harada and Michael Murray at E3, check it out below:

Mad Catz Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Fight Stick TE-S+ Unveiled at PAX

by Rip

Over at PAX 2012 the brand new Mad Catz Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Fight Stick has been unveiled and its got some new features! Details aren’t clear yet, but it looks like the art is easily swappable and they have a new non-slip bottom as well. For the PS3 version they’ve also given a nod to the Namco / Tekken fightsticks of the past (I feel like I had this idea awhile ago..) by making the stick and buttons yellow! So sick! Check out the pictures they’ve released below (I’ve added a picture of the original Namco stick as well). The stick will be available for Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and the WiiU.

Cant wait to try out that new bottom as its the only thing I felt was missing from previous Mad Catz sticks!
