Earlier today I unlocked Eliza, the latest character in the Tekken franchise. Her moveset is a lot smaller than the rest of the cast and she has some interesting tools. Aside from her projectile and Moon Glide stance she is sort of a mix of Alisa and Lili. I played some Arcade Mode sets then went online ranked with her. Check it all out below and let me know what kind of Eliza content you’d like to see:
Earlier tonight the top 4 of the first Tekken subreddit online TTT2 tournament took place. MYK and I did commentary as Reave004 joined us to help run the event. Thanks to everyone for participating and hope you enjoyed watching. There is a small interview with Reave004 in the beginning of the video that talks a little about the subreddit and how he plans to organize future tournaments. Good stuff to everyone who qualified in the top 4. You can see the final Challonge bracket here.
Just a random online casual session between Aris and myself. Nothing serious, just fun games + his laggy internet. Let me know if you’d like to see more casuals uploaded and be sure to follow the twitch.tv channel to catch the gameplay live.
Another great look at the World Tekken Federation feature of Tekken Tag Tournament 2. The more I see it, the more I think it would be a great option for OFFLINE match tracking as well. For commentators at a live event, this would be FANTASTIC for commentators/casters to have access to during a tournament/immediately after a match ends. With all of this statistic tracking its going to be VERY possible for them to do online tournaments. Can’t wait! They also show off an ‘online’ match with people playing a mile apart over MiFi (4g cell phone). Match video after the jump
It was announced today that the PREMIUM online service for Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – the World Tekken Federation, will be completely free. The service keeps track of all of your battle history, hits per character, number of wall uses, number of tags, number of dodges, throw rate, throw break rate, number of counterhits, number of chickens etc. It will also allow you to create teams with your friends and work together to earn ingame currency and get the team ranked worldwide. Overall, should be a great way to measure your progress and help you improve.
We were lucky enough to be invited to the Namco/Microsoft Tekken Tag Tournament 2 After Party this past Saturday night at the Hard Rock Hotel. At the party Namco showed off a new build of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 that featured the online play. 8 stations were setup in a network (so it was always 5 bars) and we would be randomly assigned opponents as if we were online. For the most part, lag was non-existant, but again its 5 bars on a local network, so its pretty much expected. Hopefully this bodes well for the online play going forward though! Best feature = mini practice mode between matches! Also, when connecting to an opponent it shows their disconnect rate! I recorded two short clips that show some of it in action – check it out after the jump and remember that this build is a work in progress.
Check out this new trailer for Tekken Tag 2 that shows off a BUNCH of new stuff! September can’t come soon enough. Customizations, game modes, online mode info, what looks like a new stage and more more more! Brain explooode
