Tekken 7 PC

Tekken 7

After being an arcade exclusive game for practically all of time, Tekken 7 has finally landed on home consoles and PC. Tekken 7 is a 3D, one vs one, 4 button fighter. There are currently 37 characters in the game today, Geese Howard from the SNK universe has been announced as the 38th character coming to the game, with more characters and content on the way. I’m still not sure If I would call the season pass worth getting yet though, it does not include the pre-order Eliza.

The online netcode ranges from ok to decent. Tekken 7 uses a straight peer to peer connection like Street Fighter 4 did, so you don’t have to worry about server maintenance or downtime, but this also means cross play between consoles and PC won’t ever be possible. You can customize your character with unlockable items just like previous Tekken and
Soulcalibur games. The game is pretty hard for newcomers to pick up and play. Extensive match up knowledge makes a big difference, as the move lists and character roster are huge.

I only have a few real complaints about the game. For some reason the game is lacking replays, which Namco’s previous 3D fighters have all had, and the online matchmaking and loading times are pretty lengthy. Otherwise the games pretty good and not too expensive on third party sites.
Here’s a comparison of tekken 7 loading times compared to other games.

BlazBlue Calamity Trigger PC

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger

Ah BlazBlue CT. A game I thoroughly enjoyed when it was originally released on consoles. It’s also the perfect example of the absolute worst job a company can do porting a game from console to PC. The saddest thing of all is that Arc System Works doesn’t even seem to have learned their lesson quite yet. For those not in the know, BBCT was published on PC by a third party company(H2 Interactive Co., Ltd.). This particular release was so late after the original console release, that people were already playing the next game in the BlazBlue series on consoles. To make things worse, instead of making the online play work over steam for PC, they just scrapped online play for the PC version all together. It’s quite depressing to even write about, hopefully they make some improvements to their porting process for future Guilty Gear and BlazBlue releases. I almost don’t even want to put the game on my site, but it’s my goal to have almost every PC fighting game on here so…

Enough about all the horrible things that went wrong, The game has the original 13 characters and a full visual novel mode-esque story for each character. So if you’re into brain dead 1 round easy fights, followed by some story, then you may want to pick the game up. Secondly, when this game goes on sale, it really goes on sale. During pretty much any holiday you can pick this up for less than $3.

Here’s to hoping Arc System Works stops throwing away money and publishes their games on PC for real soon.

Mortal Kombat X for PC

Mortal Kombat X

Warning, I was misinformed about a lot of the information below, I plan to redo this post soon.

Well the new hotness came out this past week, and everyone’s playing it. Problem is they are either playing it on the XBone or the PS4. And it’s not for a lack of effort, streamers with beefy PC setups such as NYCfurby have tried, but the PC version just can’t compare. Additionally tons of DLC, and by that I mean disc-locked content has already been found. Complete kombatants such as Sindel, Barraka, Rain, and more have been hacked and made completely playable. I was reading the reviews on the steam store page and I agree 100% with this users review: Click to read more! Continue reading “Mortal Kombat X” »
