TEKKEN 7 will be available in the Americas for the PCs via STEAM on June 2, 2017.

The TEKKEN franchise is one of the videogame industry’s longest running series encompassing over 20 years of history. This 20-year history also means numerous plot-points within the TEKKEN saga may have been forgotten or lost to the annals of time.

Today, we’re going to get everyone caught up on all the drama and twists-and-turns contained within TEKKEN’s long-running storyline through a fun 8-Bit Cinema rendition of TEKKEN’s franchise history covering TEKKEN 1 through TEKKEN 3. Relive Heihachi’s cold-blooded parenting philosophy as he drops his five-year-old son, Kazuya, off a cliff only to have Kazuya survive; awakening an undying need for revenge against his father and his thirst for power to take-over the Mishima Zaibatsu. Learn the origins of Devil Jin (Heihachi’s grandson) and how his storyline plays into TEKKEN lore.

  • Overgrowth Review

    Overgrowth, while fun for a while, misses the mark for a captivating story or combat. The world feels uninviting and dead, giving off the feel of a game from the early 2000’s when the processing power of hardware was much more limiting. The combat is fast-paced and fun, but it lacks depth and eventually goes stale. The story that ties it all together feels loose and lacks impact, each character blends into another and consequently prevents the player from connecting at a deeper level. The title does shine for the first hour or two, but it quickly loses its flair.

  • Road Redemption Review

    The updated graphics and physics engine are sure to bring enjoyment and laughs. Road Redemption builds on a relatively simple concept that has worked in the past, repackages it, and allows the unpredictability of other players a large selection of tracks, bikes, and riders in online death races to round out a uniquely enjoyable experience.

  • Absolver Review

    The moments I did have a good time were few and far inbetween, often overlooked and bogged down by repetitious fights and long periods of grinding out moves and experience. The glitches I experienced were numerous, but thankfully Sloclap is aware of most of these problems and is releasing patches to help eliminate them, while also adding new features. If you’re looking for crazy flashy combos and special moves, this isn’t the title for you. While Absolver is a fighting game, it’s a far cry from the likes of Street Fighter, Tekken, or Injustice. With many moves grounded in reality, or at least inspired by them, Absolver’s combat system still requires strategy, but even moreso patience — a quality for which many do not play fighting games.

  • Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite Review

    Regardless of the complaints, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite proves to earn its place in the powerful series laid out before it. Furthermore, the genre of 2D fighters is a very familiar concept, with a rich history and a dense family of games taking after it. Often, these games can seem too generic to stand out or to feel worthy of any time given, but conversely, many of these games try too hard to make something of themselves, and result in a game far too complex and clunky to be enjoyed in any way. Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite, however, treads this line perfectly and offers an engaging experience born out of a classic style.

  • Redeemer Review

    If only Diablo III was this fun and exciting to play between all the fluff and management overhead, I wouldn’t have abandoned it; Redeemer has excatly what I want when I crave quick, well-produced top-down action content. The secret sauce and energy are in full effect, and the face bashing is exceptionally fun both with hands, along with the more advanced killing methods. Зашибись!
