Marvel relased this teaser trailer at the Comic-con. Hopefully it will be better than the usual movie video game.
Video after the jump.
Next week Japan will get a update for Tekken 5 DR Online. No news on when the update will arrive outside Japan, hopefully soon after though. But here are the updates:
- Pickup Match Mode: a mode where you continually face off in one-on-one matches without having to got through a matching room. You can set conditions to search for an opponent, then battle the same opponent repeatedly, or have the computer search for new opponents following each match.
- Dual Shock 3 rumble support
- You can now create and display names for rooms
- Adjustments to allotment of points when winning and losing battles
- “Flag” option added to room creation and searching, allowing you to create and search for rooms that have been flagged with specific conditions.
- Players who are waiting for their turn to fight will be alerted via sound effects and rumble when the time has come.
- When Rank Match has been set to off, your win/loss is no longer recorded and you do not earn battle points.
Tekken has been one of my top 3 games I play ever since I could battle people online. But since I play with the “Hori Real Arcade Pro 3“. I could care less for the rumble support, but cool for those that like the controller.
The things I like about this update is “Pickup Match Mode”. Sometimes it’s just hard to find a good room, so this is a nice option. Also I like the feature of being alerted when your turn is up. Because before you had no idea unless you just sat there are waited and that gets boring quick if there are 3 or 4 matches you have to wait for.
I’m glad they are still updating this game. This way Tekken 6 Online will be great due to all this info they have collection from T5DR.
There is a code hidden in the game Twisted Metal: Head On Extra Twisted, and the message reads “Twisted Metal is coming on PSThree”.
I hope the tone of the game is more like Twisted Metal Black, my favorite in the series. I got Full Auto 2 back at the PS3 launch in hopes of filling my twisted metal void on the PS3 and it didn’t even come close. I took the game back disgusted. But finally Twisted Metal will come to the PS3
Good news is that the developers are working hard on porting the arcade version to the PS3. Tekken 5 Dark Resurrection Online has given them some good data to work with. They believe it’s possible to have 60fps online battles. Me personally have really been enjoying Tekken 5 DR Online, works great. Sometimes you get a guy with a slow connection, but other than that, it’s great.
All the characters from previous Tekken games will make it into Tekken 6 due to requests of the fans. Guess nobody likes Gon or Doctor Boskonovitch from Tekken 3 But there was a girl that threatened to kill herself if her favorite character wasn’t included in the next game. So developers keep the character. Not sure which one it is. They have been so dedicated to Tekken 6 that 15 developers have lost their girl friends. I hope they find one after Tekken 6 is complete.
The producer also mention possible downloadable content like new characters and data download. On future, Harada hopes there is a chance to do some crossover with other fighting series, something along the line of “Tekken vs Virtua Fighter vs CAPCOM vs SNK”. Finally, Harada says while fans of respective series may see it as fierce rivalry, the developers behind these fighting games are actually very close together.
That could be very interesting. I’ve never been a Virtua Fighter fan though. I’ve been a fan of Tekken since I saw it in the arcades. I road my bike about 5 miles to the local arcade to just play Tekken 1 once, lol. Been hooked since
Gary sent me this story. There is a bonus stage at the arcades in Japan with a huge robot called Nancy. Her life bar is much higher than normal, maybe even 10X! She doesn’t block anything you throw at it, but she can attack you will your attacking! Click the image below for a larger view.
