Yes i know, sorry. I'm not used to play fighting games with a pad. ;)
(And i haven't touch a Tekken since Tekken 6 in 2009...)

Well, i mean i don't expect you guys to be like tournament level players or anything. It was just a little funnny seeing how slow and static Tekken looks when played by someone who isn't in to the game :)

It's great that you are making videos of it though, i'm super pumped to get back in to Tekken with 7.

That's acceptable :) I can't play the likes of Tekken WITH a fightstick. I already have access to the fighters' 4 main limbs with each of the 4 buttons on the controller so having six buttons in to rows of 3 make no sense to me at all.

What did you think of the visuals? Do you think they are impressive being on Unreal 4 or do you think quite the opposite?

My fihtsticks have 2 lines of 4 buttons, so it's fine.

The visuals are quite good. Characters and background levels are well detailed. The only flaw to me are the character's faces (in-game), they look weird.

Thanks. Oh no, going by the video we can see the loading times truly are slow, maybe the slowest in the series to the point you had to edit out the loading screen of the third fight.
This would have been the main reason I thought they went with UE4, for quicker load times (obviously the multi-platform nature of the game is the main one though).
I can't wait for the game but those "Rage Art" moves are another thing bugging me. They are just MK/Street Fighter "cutscene" moves that slow down the flow of the fight. Not something I want in my Tekken game.

Thanks for the upload of this guts :)

They are not particularly slow, we edited the videos.

That's good, I hope they are even better at launch. Then again, maybe it was the interrupting catgirl on the right that kept distracting me. :)

I'm glad there are people still impressed by this crap so the devs can put food on their plates, but this is garbage. Looks like a PS3 game, terrible animation, same old crap from 10, 15 years ago. Fighting games are worse than COD when it comes to reskinning the same game over and over again. All these fighting games look incredibly lazy now days. They were impressive 10 years ago but nothing has changed. The last time I was excited about a fighting game was DOA2. The last time I found them interesting and different was Tao Feng.

So don't buy it. I mean you obviously don't get fighters, so why even bother? The competitive aspect means you can't go too wild and crazy with the games. Add to that that the last Tekken game was released in 2012, i think that's plenty of time between releases to be fair. It's not like we are getting 1 of these every year. I think a 4-5 year gap is plenty of time in between. But then again, your comment is basically just trolling, so i don't even know why i'm bothering to answer seriously.

Also how are the animations bad, or are you just trying to whine for the sake of it? I think Tekken has better animations than most other fighters, though it can ofc look a bit jerky at times due to cancels and such, but you can't have friggin euphoria type shit in a game that depends on frame perfect inputs. It'd ruin the game.

Maybe you should try actually playing a figher instead of slagging them off. And by that i mean spend time to learn the game instead of going online in ranked and spamming 10 hit combos.

I don't know why you're bothering with this guy. He's obviously speaking out of pure ignorance.

Hell.. the last fighting game he found interesting was Tao Feng.

You obviously didn't play Guilty Gear Xrd.
Commented on 2016-10-27 18:11:34
Well, i did point that out myself. Just get a little annoyed when such obviously stupid things are posted. Dislike the game all you like, i understand if Tekken, or fighters in general, isn't for you, but at least don't be a complete idiot about it.

It's like going in a racing sim thread and complaining that there's too much driving in the game or something. Makes no sense :P

Guess i just wanted to point out that it was a load of bollocks :P

I know you are just completely trolling but yeah I sort of agree slightly with what you say when it comes to Tekken.

There has never been the kind of massive jump in Tekken, visually, that there was since the jump from PS1 to PS2. Then Tekken 4 pushed it even further with fully realised 3D environments and varying floor altitudes like steps and slopes which saw incredible animations when characters stances completely changed if either foot was higher up than the other on the ground. Unfortunately the hardcore Tekken fans hated that and it went back to flat grounds since.

Looks like animations from a PS3 game? Not sure what that insult is about. No other game has EVER surpassed the horse animations of Agro in Shadow of the Colossus to this very day and that was a PS2 game. The same could be said about anything in Uncharted 2. Tekken's animations have always been solid for their time. Its games like MK and their stiff robotic animations and boring shared animations across characters that I always disliked about that series but at least when I say it I explain why that is. I still don't mind checking out MK after the "GOTY" version releases and is a lot cheaper though.

The last thing, you talk like there is a new Tekken game annually or something. Its now been 7 years since Tekken 6, and 4 years since the spin off Tekken Tag 2. I love the work that Harada and the Tekken team put into these, especially the fact that the same Namco sound team have been doing the music almost 20 years since Tekken 3. Full price for a game that comes around every half a decade or so is hardly the worse thing in the world AND there is no bullcrap from Harada like forced, paid for, on disc DLC or anything like that, that you usually get from Capcom.

The game couldn't come sooner, can't wait :)

Edit: Just spent 10 minutes writing that and only realised after posting, Megido pretty much beat me to most of those points. ^_^

Man hate tha this game won't get crossplay on PC because Harad thinks PC gamers are cheater :(

Its about time we had a brand new fighting franchise/series of games now, tekken, street fighter and mortal kombat are a bit boring now and all more or less the same
