Tekken Tag 2: Five MORE Characters for Console?

Posted in dlc, fan-service, fantasy, fighting games on July 22nd, 2019 by Bessie Peters

Bring out those wishlists, Tekkenfans!

Looks like the fun and surprises aren’t ending anytime soon for Namco-Bandai’s Tekken Tag Tournament 2. We’ve already been given four additional fighters recently, but now it seems that there are even more waiting in the wings according to the above teaser pic. The screengrab comes from a recently-posted updated version of TTT2′s ‘Switch’ trailer, and points to at least five more challengers just itching to be outed and revealed.

So who’s next? Doctor B? P.Jack? Tougou? Some word on forums is that the next reveals will be in July- man, that’s a bit far away… but well, so much stuff has been shown off at E3, we at least have lots to chew on for now. Let the speculations continue! Tekken Tag 2 is out for PS3 and Xbox360 in September 2012.

Killer Instinct Story Mode, Season 2 Info! AT LAST!

Posted in dlc, fan-service, gaming on July 22nd, 2019 by Bessie Peters

Killer Instinct Central just posted information on the XBox One’s DLC fighter’s near future developments, gleaned from the latest livestream on the game from Microsoft.
For starters, April 9 will bring the update that will add Story Mode/Arcade Mode (YES!!!), Fulgore and Sadira’s Classic Costume to the game, as well as a Spectator Lobby and a new Stage for Shadow Jago.

Season 2, which will be talked about more soon, will add a lot more to the existing Story Mode (more cutscenes, dialogue between rivals is being thrown about), including a New and NASTY Final Boss, who will be playable. You can apparently get hints of things to be added in Season 2 from some of the Story Endings. Oh, and depending on how you beat your enemies, there will be multiple endings.

For a comprehensive list of the latest info, check out here.

As someone who bought the XB1 and KI, I am STARVED for content with this otherwise pretty cool and solid fighter. Really looking forward to next week’s additions, and to Season 2. NEED MORE CHARACTERS. BADLY. Oh, and please bring back Maya. Heheh.

New Tekken Character Debuts! Eliza the Vampire Girl

Posted in dlc on July 22nd, 2019 by Bessie Peters

Now this is a surprise!

Okay, FINALLY something actually NEW in Tekken! Just less than an hour ago Tekken Channel debuted the character trailer for the long-awaited ‘Vampire Girl’. Her name is Eliza and she’s looking… unusual. For starters, she has ranged attacks like a Reppuken-like ground wave and of course, bloodsucking moves. Her English voice is kinda cheezy but nice and they’ve added in some humor with her intros and taunts- apparently she doesn’t get much sleep. Heheh. Anyway, she doesn’t look too much like a Loli as earlier thought. I have to say I wanna see her more in action.

I’m still bummed out they’re debuting her in Tekken Revolution, and I’ll be really irritated if you have to grind or have to traverse seven mountains of Pain before unlocking her, and I wanna see her story and ending. Anyways, no word on when or how she’ll be made available, but it looks like the work on her is quite a bit along- here’s to her being unleashed as a kind of Christmas gift- along with a new game announcement, eh, Namco-Bandai? For now though, check out the trailer above!

Now, how ’bout Sexy Tekken Force Girl?

The Lone Gamer’s Must-Have iPad Games

Posted in dlc on July 19th, 2019 by Bessie Peters

The just-released Don’t Starve is just one of the many Must-Have games on the appstore.

I LOVE my iPad. I own an iPad Air, by the way, and I have no plans of upgrading or getting another tablet. This lovely slate is my constant companion (aside from my Galaxy Note 2), and it is my portable media center. I usually have tons of movies and vids loaded into the media player, but the best part of Apple’s tablet are the GAMES. Emulators not included, I think that the appstore probably has the most and best selection of games you can take with you everywhere. Here are the select few I will never delete from my tablet.

Puzzle Quest. This is the ORIGINAL Puzzle Quest, not the sequel or any of the countless wannabees. Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords is an awesome blend of Match-3 Puzzle and fantasy roleplaying, with you leading an intrepid adventurer through his or her rise to power, from an apprentice wizard or fledgeling knight struggling to survive against a sewer rat to a master conqueror controlling multiple cities. Everything is fought by matching gems, but the compelling story and addictive gameplay make this a cut above the rest. You can just pick it up and play for short bursts or long campaigns as you will, and the variety of character classes make replayability pretty high.
The one problem with this is, well, it seems to be unavailable on the appstore at present (at least from my appstore), but I managed to re-download it from my purchases list. Unfortunately, it seems to play without any SFX now(only music), but the gameplay is still intact (you can still get this classic on Steam for PC) so I’ll still be playing this probably till doomsday.

Infinity Blade III. Every iPad owner should have this installed, not only to have one single game to make onlookers go ‘OOH’ and ‘AAH’ at your device’s impressive capabilities, but also because it’s an awesome game. IB3 does swiping combat like no other game on the platform. Of course, you have the earlier two games, but I think this finale is the best if only for having a second playable (female) heroine to kill behemoths with.

Dead Trigger. Sometimes you just want to kill zombies with high-powered firearms, and this is the game to scratch that itch. The original DT has some of the best graphics and shooting gameplay on the iPad, with chunky zombies that are just begging to be riddled with hot lead. Yes, Dead Trigger 2 came out years ago, but the original is still a notch better due to the simple fact that you can play it OFFLINE.

Civilization Revolution. Yet another huge strategy title that is perfect to play on the iPad’s large touchscreen, CivRev is your portal to countless hours of empire-building-or-destroying obsessiveness.

Plants VS Zombies HD. The original PvZ is still awesome to this day, again a perfect standalone set compared to the constantly-being-updated iAP-rich sequel. Again, the iPad touchscreen is perfect for this classic, particularly for those marathon Endless sessions.

And these are just the classic oldies I love- I haven’t even gotten to the many fighting/action games and several new treats that I am having so much fun with lately. And with games like Don’t Starve: Pocket Edition and This War of Mine coming soon to the appstore, the iPad is truly one of the best Boredom-Beaters you can have with you.

Streetfighter V Latest Info!

Posted in dlc on July 19th, 2019 by Bessie Peters

It may be a little delayed, but here’s the latest information on Streetfighter V as a whole from the recent SFV Panel at EVO 2015.

• Streetfighter V will be moving away from Capcom’s past practice of disc-based updates and sequels. The initial SFV disc will be the only one you’ll ever need.

• There will be 16 Characters playable at launch.

• Four of the initial 16 fighters will be all-new, original characters. The first of these is the just-revealed Necalli.

• All system updates will be available for all players free. Post-launch gameplay content can be unlocked/earned with two types of currency. Fight Money is earned by playing the game and can be used to earn/unlock content. However, there is as well Zenny– currency that is bought with real money that can be used to buy content instead of using Fight Money. Zenny is for those who are impatient and want to unlock stuff right away.

• Aside from the initial 16 fighters, additional characters will be added to the roster regularly post-launch to keep the game fresh.

This all sounds pretty good. I am glad that there will eventually be more characters aside from the rather slim-sounding 16. Streetfighter V will be available exclusively for the PS4 and PC in Spring 2016.

More DOA5 Last Round Updates, DOA Xtreme 3 Announced!

Posted in dlc on July 19th, 2019 by Bessie Peters

5 Hours of DOA5 Fandom and Wackiness here.

During yesterday’s Dead or Alive Festival stream, Tecmo-KOEI revealed some tantalizing news for fans of the sexy brawler. First off, August 11 will see a new update to the game (1.04) which will add balance fixes as well as a new ‘Fireworks’ Nighttime stage as well as a new ‘Lovely Summer’ DLC costume set.

The next few months will see updates as well.

September will see a Crossover Costume DLC pack themed with the Nihon Falcom‘s Legend of Heroes and Y’s series.

October will bring a Crossover DLC with Square Enix’s Schoolgirl Strikers as the theme.

A third DLC pack that will crossover with Tatsunoko Productions will bring Yatterman and Hakushon Daimao-themed outfits to DOA.

But that’s not all! Looks like Team Ninja’s support for DOA5 Last Round will be extending to next year, as Spring 2016 will see another new stage AND a New Character added to the game- another female character, btw.

All of this, plus a new entry into the summer-themed Dead or Alive Xtreme spin-off series has also apparently been confirmed to be in development. Some sources have mentioned that this is supposedly exclusive for Japan and Asian release but I’m sure DOA Fans in other territories will be clamoring for it to be released their way. More on all these as news come along then.

Streetfighter V: Karin Revealed at TGS2015!

Posted in dlc on July 19th, 2019 by Bessie Peters

OJOH-SAMAAAA! HOHOHOHOOOO!

She’s BAAAACK….. Karin Kanzaki, heiress to the Kanzaki Financial Empire and rival eternal to Sakura Kasugano has just been revealed at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. She looks mainly like she did way back in her debut in Streetfighter Alpha 3- those distinct blonde hair curls, the red and black outfit- and that laugh. THAT LAUGH.

Gotta be honest, not really a Karin fan, not one of those who asked for her back, but she looks pretty cool and her fighting style is very distinct and interesting. Her design also looks quite good (even if her face is basically Cammy with an attitude).
Just have to point out- at this point, we have three blonde girls in the game. How about some brunette or Asian love, Capcom? I’m expecting that since Karin is in, Sakura can’t be far behind (or she’ll eventually be one of the fighters added via post-launch DLC). I’m still hoping we see Juri back (she was part of the leaked roster that included Rashid). Not sure if the rumors that there may be one or two more reveals before TGS is over… but I guess we’ll see over the weekend.

For now though, check out Ojoh-sama in action. You wanted her, you got her.
