The Malaysian Fighting Game Community (MyFGC) has been gaining momentum as of late with more events happening this year. But that doesn’t mean they can’t go out to compete. Eleven players from Malaysia made up of sponsored players from team Flash Vision as well as unsigned players competed at Abuget Cup 2017 held in Jakarta, Indonesia this past weekend. Five different game tournaments were held which includes Street Fighter V (part of the Capcom Pro Tour as a Ranking event), Tekken 7 (part of the Tekken World Tour as a challenger event), King Of Fighters XIV, Guilty Gear Xrd Rev 2 and BlazBlue: Central Fiction.
Our Malaysian players competed mostly in Street [...]
The state government endorsed Selangor Cyber Games was a huge success last year. Successful enough for the event to return for the second time around. 2017 will see a bit of a shake up- only four games this time and as a result, a smaller total prize pool of RM180,000.
However, the bulk of the total RM330,000 offered last year was part of the Mineski Pro Gaming League (MPGL) South East Asia Championship which was roughly RM200,000. MPGL isn’t returning this time, and with less tournaments offered, the prize pool per game is bigger than last year.
Taking the main event spot is Legends Circuit Malaysia. Selangor Cyber Games will be part of Malaysia’s official [...]
Tekken 7 promised to have two more guest characters added into the roster and now they have revealed the next one to come as DLC. It is the one and only Geese Howard of King Of Fighters and Fatal Fury fame. Like how Akuma is in Tekken, Geese will have a few of his trademark moves like the Reppuken still behave similar to what you would see in a KOF game but with some tweaks to fit him into the Tekken gameplay.
Also, there will be a new stage include based on Geese’s abode as well.
Here is the first trailer:
This is the second content of the season pass and will arrive later this year in winter. The first content, Ultimate Tekken Bowl, should arrive by next [...]
Let’s go bowling! Bandai Namco has announced that the fun game mode first seen in Tekken Tag Tournament will make a return to Tekken 7 as DLC. In Ultimate Tekken Bowl, you can now bring the roster of characters into a game of bowling. While bowling mini-games might be a sour spot for some players who played a lot of Grand Theft Auto IV, when Tekken Bowl first appeared 17 years ago it was one of the most fleshed out mini-games in the series. Not to mention fun.
This new trailer showcases a bit of gameplay from the new mode, though it’s mostly just footage of series director Katsuhiro Harada showcasing his bowling skills (and how well he can imitate Paul Phoenix). [...]
After two long years, it has finally come to this. While Capcom’s Street Fighter V skips an arcade release, the other big fighting game from Japan remains to its root with an early launch in the arcades. Tekken 7, after countless updates in the arcades (which includes Tekken 7 Fated Retribution), it has finally appear on the PS4, Xbox One and for the first time for the series, on PC.
But has all the wait be worth it? Does it offer something new for those who never touch the arcade version? And is it worth picking up for those who poured a lot of time playing at the arcades? The short answer is yes, the game is even more fun as ever but as a packaged game product it has a [...]
One thing leading to the launch of Tekken 7 on consoles and PC was that Bandai Namco wanted to tell a story. Or rather, to conclude the long-running feud of the Mishimas- mainly between father Heihachi and devil-blooded son Kazuya. After six whole games the rivalry between the two should be over. Hence, the whole story mode is called the Mishima Saga mode.
After Injustice 2 set up the bar high on cinematic story modes for fighting games, Tekken 7 ended up just a bit short. There are interesting ideas with their approach to a story mode, but there are also a lot of rough edges holding it back from being a very satisfying ride.
