Tekken 6 director Katsuhiro Harada is very happy with the widespread success of Street Fighter IV, despite it arguably being a rival to his own game.
RESPECT,japanees developers respect each other not cough.....saints row 2 trailer cough... bad move volition
This happens all the time dude, it's not just Japanese devs.
Just my opinion.
no, i think your exactly right
milking their customer with DLC clothing... Remember they said that "unlockables are so out of date..."
Wich has yet to be a point for your arguments . I mean the logic is quite silly to not say another word . SF4 made you unlock colors (wtf ?) and still sold you costumes So where is the correlation here ? Since when unlockables prevents dlcs ?
There was no argument here. I wasn't arguing with anyone. Just trying to point out the fact that there was an article yesterday which they say "unlockables are so yesterday". I just find it funny. But back to your "argument". I just took the comment from them to mean that they are getting away with unlockable in order to try to sell more DLC. If they make enough $$ from DLC and people don't mind paying for it, what's to prevent them from changing what's normally unlockables to make you pay for everything? RE5 multiplayer anyone? "So where is the correlation here ? Since when unlockables prevents dlcs ? " This is not a black and white type of deal here. One does not prevent the other. But having more DLCs where a company can get money for will more than likely drive them to have more DLC than to make free content in form of unlockables. Perhaps the development team have this great content that was meant for the users to unlock, but then the sales team looked at how well the SFIV DLC sold and may be like "why don't we make it a DLC??"
But thing is some of you guys keeps repeating it , and it still got no correlation whatsoever . All those "conspiracy" theories about ways to propose DLCs avails to nothing , when they already do propose whatever they can get away with anyway . Since 2008 all or close to all next gen fighters proposed dlcs , and almost all of them were with unlockables , actually the worst offenders ( SF4 and sc4) had the most stuff to unlock so far . hell it's even easier for games with unlockables , when you propose stuff like characters , items or full unlocks via dlc for newbies . I'm not a fan of dlcs either , far from it even , but unlockables or not , they'll be there and their presence would only increase .
Tekken 5 DR HD for the PS3 had no DLC at all. All the characters were unlocked to begin with, just like Tekken 6. But all the extra costumes and clothing are unlocked through playing the game and getting money every time you win.
I'm probably going to buy Tekken 6 used, TAKE THAT Namco, you won't get my money.
Too bad BlazBlue is already a better game quality wise than SF4, and will probably blow T6 out of the water once you can compare and contrast. Lolchaingun adventure mode in a fighting game. :/
Blazblue looks like crap! that game sucks. stupid ass pansy characters, they look like the crap that comes with a happy meal.
You probably like it so much cause it's a button masher. I like the game too, but c'mon, you can map specials and super combos to the right stick! There went any kind of skill out the window. This game won't catch on to the big fighting game leagues.
yeah you can map buttons but u can disable it its user friendly and you know that, blazblue is way more complex then sf4 cant say tekken 6 because i never played it
more complex isnt equal to better game . Each are different period . And all 3 are pretty good . t6 is probably the weaker imo because of their late trend of abusing Juggles combos , but that's something that already was heavily present in Capcom and Arc fighting games too (houto no ken urg....)
im personally not a Street Fighter or Tekken fan myself. im more of a Guilty Gear and Soul Calibur guy. i am really loving BlazBlue right now. Street Fighter is one of the oldest fighting game series, as well as the most successful and most respected game of that genre and its nice to see devs of that genre pay homage to that. Kinda like when guys doing anime pay homage to the Dragon Ball series and Gundam series. im not really a big fan of the two personally (except for gundam seed) but their success cant be denied.
But its not the most popular. At one time, Mortal Kombat (I know its hard to believe) had a bigger following in the 2D fighting era. I was personally much more into Mortal Kombat myself. Its like SNES vs MEGADRIVE, PSX vs N64. It was Mortal Kombat vs SF Then came the 3D fighting game era. And it changed fighting games FOREVER. 3D fighting was truly the shiat. The ways the fighting games were headed were truly REVOLUTIONARY. And it made fighting games reach an all time popularity high. The ONLY two games that lead the 3D revolution, were Tekken and Virtua Fighter. Every 2D fighting game got slaughtered including SF. Mortal Kombat died on its own and went 3D themselves but it was to no avail. The series went downhill since MK3. Capcom made one last attempt with SF3. The game was ok but it couldnt compete with 3D. And thats why ever since, no SF was produced. 2D didnt die however since the marvel VS games were pretty solid. And fighting games popularity kinda took a nose dive since 2003. But after 10 years or so, it was time for the SF revival. Still, a real fighting game fanatic will always play SF because of the nostalgie effect. But 3D fighting like Tekken is still miles and leaps ahead. You will see, soon. The things you can do with 3D fighting is simply vastly superior than 2D. And 2D gets boring real fast. With 3D the possibilities are endless. The total sales speak for themselves, bro. SF3 was considered a flop on the consoles. SF alpha 3 moved a little more than 1 million units worldwide. SF EX3 moved less than 200 thousand units worldwide. Even Mortal Kombat Deadly alliance moved over 2 million units. At its height, SF2 moved 6 million units on the SNES. MK2 moved over 4 million units on Genesis and SNES. By comparison, Tekken 3 moved nearly 7 million units. Tekken 2 moved nearly 6 million. Even Tekken 5 moved over 3.6 million units.
wow, that was a whole bunch of typing to really say nothing. i never said anything about any one of them being a best seller. i dont even like street fighter. but my post about street fighter is 100% truth. street fighter did what cant be done with hardware sales alone. so you obviously missed the point of my previous post.
this is coming for PSP coz then i can play it anyitme!!
IM SORRY BUT 3D FIGHITING GAMES SUCKS, STREET FIGHTER IS THE BEST FIGHTING GAME EVER MADE IN HUMAN HISTORY
Its fair, you have right to your opinion...just remember, you have your caps lock on =P
is the best fighting game ever made
i agree but better precise wich . Coz while some are unanimously loved by fans (97..98) the 00's ones are subject to heated debates . Imo Kof died after '98 , tried a timid but decent revival with XI , and finally is back with a vengeance with XII .
Can you break combo strings in Tekken?
There is more than 1 way to "break" or stop a 10 hit combo. 1) Learn the 10 hit and block every hit incoming, then counter at the end. 2) Learn the 10 hit and use a low jab/ kick to stop a high attack within the 10 hit. 3) parry the high attack or parry the low attack. Some characters have special parry moves that parry everything. Some have special parry moves that only work with high attacks or mid. Everyone has a low parry however. Parry and counter. 4) side step the first few hits and counter. 5) Some attacks can be countered using the back, triangle + O button. Only noobs get slaughtered by 10 hits. And only noobs can win by using 10 hits. There are some cheesy players out there that do nothing but use 10 hits. Especially on cheap characters like Nina or Lili. What you do when someone use 10 hit on you? You beat the snot out of them. Watch this. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
This is good news see! Its good to see dev's happy for competitor. IMO competitors are the best thing for a dev. The more competition = the better the challenge to make something great! =) This game is going to be sweet! =)
tekken 6 is a must buy for me
tekken KoFG :)
