Rich “FilthieRich” Bantegui Announces His Departure from Namco Bandai Games

by Rip

Today on Facebook, Rich “FilthieRich” Bantegui announced his departure from Namco Bandai. Rich has been the Community Manager since just after the MLG 2010 season for Tekken 6 came to an end and has basically been with Namco through the development and release of TTT2. It was definitely nice having someone from within the fighting game community be represented within the corporate walls of Namco Bandai and Rich has left some big shoes to be filled.

Here is his announcement in its entirety (very well written and I think everyone involved in their gaming community should read it):

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – Tutorial Video #2 – Intermediate 1 of 2

by Rip

Continuing on with our tutorial series for Tekken Tag Tournament 2, this time we go into some intermediate topics with zoning in 3D, the throw system, and advanced movement with topics such as backdash cancelling, wavedashing, snake dashing, and more. We bit of more than we could chew with this episode, so we had to cut it up into two pieces. Second half should be up early next week with combos from some of the new characters.
