Game is looking nice

Gotta be the first to say it though: wtf @ the glass shatter effect?
They put in some lame effects in the last one, but this certainly takes the cake

Gonna be a good year for fighting game fans.

Would've been a lot happier if this stayed PS3 exclusive, as I'd probably be playing it right now instead of waiting for work to finish on the 360 version. Anyway it looks good (but not amazing, as Tekken usually does)

Last I heard it takes longer on a PStres


But really, I would hope it would take longer to come out as this series has fallen from grace. Maybe more time = a better game

No you wouldn't be playing it right now, unless you went out to the arcade. They announced this game and even showed a trailer right before the ps3 even launched and it still hasn't been released! How many other fighting games have been announced and released since then on both systems? There's obviously other issues at work here in regards to their development of this game. Don't bother trying to blame it on their decision to actually reach new customers on the xbox.

The god damned arcade machines use Cell chip , the game is done for PS3. broman is right, we would be playing this spring , summer time. While the 360 version would have come out december or even next year.
One thing is certain that there will be tons of extra stuff. Maybe even Tekken 4 style, like that Tekken Force mini game or some thing like that. Read that in some interview.

tekken force was so bad that i honestly couldnt care much for such additions.

as for whether we'd be playing this on ps3 by now or not, im not sure, in it's original state, sure, but i think it's a combination of the 360 and the new version of the game that has made it take longer, not JUST the 360. but we at least get this improved bloodline rebelion version with additional content.

i wish they would get rid of those ugly looking smoky/fire effects when someone gets hit. They've been in every Tekken game since Playstation, and havent looked any better since.

looks cool otherwise.

It's one of Tekken's trademarks :)

All of you guys whining about the delay: at least we get BR directly, not Tekken 6 first, then 3 months later a re-release of BR.

what happened to all the sweat stuff they were hyping? I wanna see some sweat.
Commented on 2009-02-18 03:54:43
I can't believe the devs actually think gamers like the sparks from impact. It's so lame. I didn't like it back then and I still don't like it now. And why haven't these characters been given an updated wardrobe. Just look at that ridiculous high top taper hair do. I just can't take the game serious. Is it supposed to be comedic. I mean there's a bear fighting. Kung Fu Panda?????????????

Since when were they hyping sweat? Because Jin was sweaty in the first trailer? Never heard anything about sweat personally.

Omegaheat: what's wrong with paul? He's cool. And Panda/Kuma is just a classic character, can't remove them. Besides if you don't like pauls hairdo just customize him. If you don't like Kuma or panda well...that's just great cause they suck balls anyway. But really, just because you don't happen to like the character design doesn't mean the game is ass. It'll play great and it actually looks nicer than i remember it in these screens.

Or it was a 100% cg trailer...which it was, and perhaps you got your hopes up a wee bit too much? :)

I still think this looks pretty nice though. Not tekken 5 nice, mind you, but clearly passable.
Commented on 2009-02-18 06:12:57
Erm, tekken 5? I'm not sure if your memory is serving you very well, megido. you may want to look at some screenshots again for comparison( lol)... I definitely think it is looking much better than before. I may just look into it...
Commented on 2009-02-18 06:17:24
Ofc this looks more technically advanced than Tekken 5 but for it's hardware Tekken 5 looks freaking incredible, something this game sort of fails to reproduce.

exaxtomundo. Thats what I was kinda getting at. At this time in this gen of games, it just looks plain. Nothing new. Which is why I was hoping for sweat.

Well good graphics in fighting game is a double edge sword. O one hand the game would look awesome with good graphics , on the other the online part would be unplayable. You need to have really good internet and plus you wouldn't be able to play against the world ( open type servers etc. ). I just hope that they make a unbelievable net code lag free etc.

If it looked a lot better then I might at least consider taking your post seriously. (Plus haven't most developers said that it's easier to port PS3 games to Xbox360 than vice-versa?) Having said that, is it my imagination or do these screenshots look a bit better than the previous ones? (Still not enough to take broman's post seriously though, lol!) There's definitely better anti-aliasing anyway.

That doesn't make any sense. Why would the online part suffer?

Can't say I'm thrilled by the GFX. Actually at this time, when we get to see one incredible looking game after another, it looks quite dated.

Namco would release Tekken 6 to compete against Soulcalibur IV?

it's actually just a way to get around collision detection. instead of making a foot connect perfectly with a face, they hide it with a sparkly blast.

I do not mean graphics per say, I mean soul calibur IV looks amazing and I hardly ever lagged, but I mean something fresh to the genre, what is new and great in this current version. What do I have to look forward to other new characters and old ones with one or two new moves.
