Tekken 7

13 Jul

TEKKEN 7: That’s ALL I have to say…*FAINT* And this is supposed to be the FINAL BATTLE. I can’t. I can’t go.

There was an announcement a while ago stating that there would be no more Tekken games made…

TekkenxStreetfighter was supposed to come out, too…So what’s happened with that?

I just knew Namco wasn’t going to stay away long. Tekken is coming back. IGN gave a little teaser today, coming from Evo 2014, and the news is spreading like WILDFIRE. I can’t wait.

I honestly can’t wrap my mind around the fact that this is the FINAL battle. In fact, I don’t believe it. Call me delusional. I don’t.

Leave me a comment and let me know what you are thinking! I’m speechless. I just had to share the news.

Tekken X Street Fighter Come Together for the ULTIMATE Battle!

31 Jul

KEEP IN MIND: THIS IS THE CAPCOM VERSION. ANOTHER VERSION MADE BY NAMCO IS COMING SOON!!!!!

Tekken and Street Fighter’s companies, Namco and Capcom, are coming together in two games: The Street Fighter Version (which will be in the comic book style) and the Tekken Version (with the usual next gen graphics). This is completely exciting for video gamers and old time fans of both games. This battle is not only between the characters of both games, bringing in characters like Jin, Nina, and Kahzuya from Tekken and Ryu, Chu8n-li, and Ken from Street Fighter, but this is also a competition between companies to see which one will sell faster and get the most money.

Of course, the only challenge that might lie in this is lingering animosity between the fans. Also, a lot of people believe that the Tekken version will automatically sell because of graphics; then again Street Fighter might sell more because it has a larger fanbase.

All I can say is we can only wait for the release of two of the most fabulous fighting games that I’ve ever played. If only this also had Mortal Kombat! Oh man! That would be the game of the YEAR! But I’m quite satisfied. I can’t decide which is my favorite franchise, but putting them together eliminates me having to make a choice between this battle.

I better start saving my pennies. And good thing I got a new Xbox! Just in time! Now I have two new titles to look forward to decorating my screen with! And I just got Tekken 6 and Street Fighter 4! Also two awesome games!

One thing people can be happy for in this game is that this looks like a Tag Team game, which Tekken hasn’t had one since 2000, the first one on PS2, with upgraded graphics. And with all the requests from Tekken fans to have another one, many Tekken fans were a bit disappointed in Tekken 7’s announcement. But then this was announced. Amazing news. I still can’t believe this. If this is a tag Team game, it will give people the chance to play more than one character at once so players can get a full usage of the game and all the characters, which I guarantee will be a lot.

Capcom VS Namco (Tekken vs Street Fighter)

Another one!

Street Fighter VS Tekken! Who will win?

Tekken the Movie coming August 5, 2010

10 Jul

Okay, if you don’t know what Tekken is, you probably are not a fan of video games or just very very young. But anyone who group up in the era of video games knows that Tekken is one of the most popular fighting franchises in the USA. Namco’s biggest franchise really. It ranges from a variety of different consoles, mostly the Playstation.

It first came out in December of 1994 and continued throughout the 90s and even the 21st Century to be the third most popular fighting franchise next to Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. Well, some people got together and decided to make a live action of the series.

Now I’m a bit worried. I hate to bring up all the other recent adaptations, but they haven’t been that good.

Take a look at DBE (Dragon Ball Evolution)….

total crap. The only thing that was Asian or Japanese Anime about it was Ayumi Hamasaki’s contribution to the movie with her theme song “Rule”. Goku was white, Piccolo had a pointless partner, the Dragon couldn’t talk, and it was just too cheesy. And then the scenes jumped so much, it looked fake. Of course, when I heard it was PG I was afraid. You just can’t make a good fighting movie with PG, I’m sorry. And what’s with Goku being in high school? Everything was rushed…but it was to be expected.

Nothing could compare to the EXTREME epic fail Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-li.

This was so bad, only a fraction of people knew about it and cared. This was the worst adaptation ever. Did I mention both the movies mentioned were made by Fox? They are just not good at adaptations. Look at Wolverine…it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t as good as the previous X-Men movies. But The Legand of Chun-li was such a dump of crap movie, I almost puked watching it. Not only was the main character, Ryu, not in it, neither was Ken. But that wasn’t the worst part. None of the cast looked like the characters. They didn’t wear the costumes, and they barely fought. M. Bison looked like a Real Estate Agent. He didn’t even look the same. It was a pathetic excuse for an adaptation. And they just totally flucked up Vega. He was TABOO from the Black Eyed Peas! WTF! I was so mad about that movie, I thought about getting my money back at the movie theater. The only one who could even measure was Belrog.And who the crap is Mya supposed to be?

Fox’s problem is they keep trying to compete with Dark Knight and Marvel comic moves who have decided to make them “more realistic”. But comics are different from anime and video games. Marvel and Batman is different. Batman is based off of real crime in New York and Chicago urban cities. Most video games like Street Fighter and anime are inspired from Asian culture. Two opposite paths of thinking.

Then, they turned around and tried to make The Last Airbender, which most people thought sucked, which is what I thought people would say. So, it’s just not in favor of the public yet.

Hopefully, Tekken doesn’t follow the same fate. I see one problem in the trailer already: Christie and Jin….I’m sorry but that is just too weird. It seems like a repeat of some wacked out scenes in Legend of Chun-li. Eddie and Christie, maybe. Xiou and Jin, maybe. But Christie and Jin are on two different sides of the story idea. Sometimes, it just seems directors nowadays just throw anything into a movie, thinking it will sell. But a move like that is enough to make people hate it.

Check out more behind-the-scenes:

There is some hope with the Tekken franchise, despite how Bloodline Rebellion was overshadowed by Streetfighter 4, which is now getting a Super 4. There is a Tekken 7 being released so stay tuned in for that.

Generation Next: Do you remember the late 90s, Y2K?

5 Jul

Anyone who grew up in Generation Next probably remembers the following between 1995-2003:

Pop culture……We are generation “Scorpio” which also defines our generation. All we care about is sex, violence, and power. Our generation is marked by everything dark and mysterious…we hate superficiality and anything “cheerful”…anything mystical, psychic, and occult. We transformed ideas of tranformation, lost the adult “rites of passage” other generations before us had, and are the only generation who can’t find jobs in the recession, still living with parents well into our twenties, and take a while to get married, if at all. But we still find ways to rebel against society, use the internet as our way of gaining social power, and stick to ourselves in our secretive and mistrustful minds. We are also quite an emotional generation….dangerously emotional.

Television

Anyone who is anybody can’t forget the grand children Networks of Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network, and Disney Channel. Rugrats and ALL That defined Nick, until the Rugrats grew up and Kenan and Kel left All That and so did Nick Cannon, and Cartoon Cartoon Fridays, Toonami, Ed Edd and Eddy, and Powerpuff Girls defined Cartoon Network. But MTV was infested with a bunch of teeny boppers who began filling the channel with their pop videos. At least we still had Michael Jackson… VH1 was filled with oldies. And BET actually had funny comedians on Comic View and showed black movies and shows. Let’s not forget Nick Jr. owned Blues Clues, Face, and Little Bill, while Playhouse Disney had Little Mermaid and Madeline…they even used to show Timon and Pumba, Arabian Nights, and other “Disney-like shows”. Back then, cable was just becoming the “It” thing. I still remember My Brother and Me and Clarissa Explains It All, Sabrina the Teenage witch. Fox and ABC were big back then, UPN too…Sister, Sister, Smart Guy, which also came on Disney Channel along with Boy Meets World, Growing Pains, and Brotherly Love…with those Lawrence Brothers that everyone loved. Disney even had shows like the Famous Jett Jackson, So Weird, and The Jersey. Courage the Cowardly Dog was like So Weird…except weirder…Scooby-Doo was still big. We liked a lot of mysteries like Shelby Woo and the occult like So Weird and Goosbumps….we also loved Power Rangers and Anime as kids. Barney was even in our slot time, though I always preferred Kid Songs….and Zoom, the new version. Aurthur was our show too! And even Sesame Street, especially Elmo’s World. And we weren’t too far from old classic cartoons from Tex Avery, Toonheads like Bugs Bunny, and even some Animaniacs….best time for television. In later years, we supported shows like Lizzie Maguire, the first tween show to make over a million viewers, and That’s So Raven which was the first longest running show on Disney Channel. We loved Lindsey Lohan…until she got cracked up.

Remember tha babies who could talk?

What a creative show! Back when Klasky was running things: Rugrats!

The Simpsons, South Park, 90210, Living Single, Baywatch, X-Files, Law and Order, and other nighttime television. Not to mention, watching the Bulls game was far more entertaining than it is now.

Technology

Computer was just becoming a part of the home, and laptops was spreading jobs across the nation. And everyone used to chat on AOL…it used to talk back and say “You’ve got Mail” which used to be so cool. Of course, I was always on yahoo…..Then MP3s came out, though you could only play one song at the time. CDs were still pretty big. Downloading became big like two years after 2000. But people still bought CDs, and everyone had a CD player with big headphones….The DVD player was it, but then everyone found out Playstation 2 could play DVDs and it was done. Playstation 2 was like the biggest thing, though Dreamcast and Gamecube also marked the generation. Of course, realistic graphics were the biggest thing back then. LOL Remember Street Fighter, Tekken, Final Fantasy? And NBA Live was regular too.

Playstation, remember? LOL

Literature

It varied, actually towards the end, kids stopped reading and started again. Babysitters’ Club, Sweet Valley, and American Girl marked the generation. For boys it was between How to Eat Fried Worms, There’s a Boy in the Girl’s Bathroom, Help! I’m trapped in Obedient School Again, Anamorphs, and Goooooosssbumpsss!!!! Who doesn’t remember Goosbumps? That was like the biggest thing. Then Harry Potter came out like in 1999 or before, and that took over. A Series of Unfortunate Events was big too. And Pirates of the Caribbean marked the later generation.

GOOOOSSSEEEBUMMMPSS!

Music

It sucked balls. Pop idols like Backstreet Boys and Spice Girls took over the industry. Who can forget the Hansen brothers? Pure lamety. Then here came Britney, the first teen solo act, and she influenced the whole world to come out with pop imitations. Christina Aguilera, Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore who dyed her hair for the “occasion”, and all of these pop groups like Dream and Play, and just too many pop artists to count. And then the boy Britney Spears came out, Aaron Carter. Even black people changed genres like After Dark and Blaque…TLC was the biggest group…until, well you know. It was back when Jesse McCartney was part of the group Dreamstreet. Hoku and Myra marked Disney and Nick movies for their contributions, and Baha Men music swept the world by storm. Then in 2001, it seemed Dark Child took over everything, and so did 50 cent…later Avril Lavigne stole Britney’s shine in the early Y2K years. Then all these poprock artists came out of the closet, of course singers like Michelle Branch, Lindsay Pagano, Vanessa…can’t remember the rest of her name, and even Pink came out of the closet with her “real self”. Evanescence also dominated the industry. Metallic and Coldplay were even at their peek. All the most hard-core music marked our generation….along with the most giddy… If only Panic! At the Disco had been around….

Britney Spears when she was a little innocent...only a little...

The wildest group around! Spice Girls!

Original famous style! Avril Lavigne!

50 Cent back in 2003...

Fashion

I remember overalls….which no one wears anymore. Jordans were popular too…Capri pants were the “it” thing…and for some reason…ponchos….baggy pants, bandannas and scarves, and surfer boy hair cuts. Jean jackets and Timbaland boots were in too. That’s what Spongbob used to remind me of back in 2002, his debut…a surfer, valley dude, which those bleached-blond idiots were the “it” thing. Now, Spongebob is just a geeky idiot…Ponytails, and scrunchies were popular. Lip gloss had just become a big thing. Belly tops were “oh-so revealing” but not compared to now…especially if you consider Gaga’s “no pants rule”. Skorts were popular, and no one wear those either. Numbered tees, like with “57” or “23” and words all over the pants. And because of 9/11, everyone was wearing red, white, and blue. Feathery and hot looking jackets marked later generations. Like this:

Jackets of early Y2K...

jacket

And these checkered and worded jeans:

checkered pants?

Backstreet Boys look...LOL

Words and Sayings

The words and sayings that came back were “Cool” and “Awesome”, but we also added “Totally hot” and “bogus” and “wack” and “corny” and “lame” and who can forget “psyche”. “Wicked Cool” and other sayings that are too funny to repeat. “For shizzle my nizzle” was popular too, and you could add of “izzles” if you liked. And” then “it’s off the heezy for sheezy. “Da Bomb” was it too. And “Bad” or “Sharp” was in too. “Totally Rad” was in too. LOL This is funny.

This is really a walk down memory lane…

I feel sorry for this generation. Sorry later generation, you missed out on the best age to be a kid. Your Television Network producers have gotten so stupid they can’t even read their own network titles. Instead they show everything but music on MTV and live actions on Cartoon Network. Not to mention, the face of Disney is no longer Mickey, but Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus….

No one uses their voices in music anymore, it’s now been replaced by cheap equipments that electronically “disguises” real voices.

Glad I grew up in Generation Next.

Movies

Movies ranged between Sixth Sense, Scissors hands, well really anything with Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp. Matrix marked the 21st Century. We also had “Ritchie Rich”, remember the little blond boy from Home Alone? And let’s not forget the Disney movies. The best movies in the 90s were the Disney movies, hands down, like Lion King, Huntchback of Notre Dame, and Beauty and the Beast. Of course, there were some pretty good thrillers here and there, and other children’s movies like Little Rascals which had Mary-Kate and Ashley, America’s Twins. Also, Dennis the Menace. Remember Free Willy? LOL That movie still makes me laugh. Childrens’ movies had reach their peak in the 90s. The first child actor won an acting award, Haley Joel Osment, and you used to see him everywhere before his sister went all “Hannah Montana”…though he still acts as Sora on Kingdom Hearts, which is all I care about.
