The MacSplicer Podcast #58 – Capcom Cup 2018, TWT’s Prize Pool, and Grandblue Fantasy Versus

I halfheartedly recap Capcom Cup 2018, get angry at Bandai Namco and the Tekken team for their TWT prize pot, address the situation between Michael Murry and Flying Wonkey on Twitter, and wine about how Arc System Works hates the Persona 4 Arena series some more.

Topics on this week’s show include:

  • Capcom Cup 2018 recap
  • Tekken World Tour Finals prize pot
  • Michael Murry vs Flying Wonkey on Twitter
  • Grandblue Fantasy Versus

Tekken 7 – Review

Tekken 7 Review

Initial NA Release Date: June 2, 2017
Review Date: May 29, 2018
Reviewed on: PC
Platforms: Xbox One, PS4, PC

The 3-D fighting game space for generations has always been viewed as a niche sub-group within the grand scheme of the traditional fighting game model, and while many have come and gone, it was the Tekken franchise that truly managed to cement itself within the fighting game community (FGC).

Bandai Namco’s latest iteration to the long-lasting Tekken franchise—Tekken 7 is seemingly a culmination of almost everything a Tekken fan wanted and a little more. However, perhaps the most impressive feat is that Tekken 7 managed to modernize itself, whilst still keeping true to its original roots. Continue reading “Tekken 7 – Review”

  • Some other ramblings

Date Published: 
May 22, 2017

The Fighting Game Community (FGC) has experienced quite the change as of recent years, with 2015 perhaps having some of the most memorable moments in the competitive landscape, and 2016 elevating the exposure of fighting games primarily due to increased marketing and financial support from Sony and Capcom in regards to the release of Street Fighter V.

While we’re only at the midpoint of the year, how things play out in the second half of 2017, could very well be a tell on what the future holds for the FGC. Therefore, it would be a good time to take a closer look at the fighting games that headline the FGC in 2017, and how they impact the landscape, be it for better or for worse.

Tekken 7 vs Street Fighter V

 

Tekken 7 vs Street Fighter V
Date Published: 
October 12, 2016

From a PR standpoint, it’s fascinating to see how two of the biggest fighting game franchises; Tekken and Street Fighter have approached the introduction to the next console generation with their respective games.

Without downplaying the importance of other solid fighting games out there such as; The King of Fighters XIV, Guilty Gear Xrd: Revelator as well as the lesser known titles like Skullgirls, Melty Blood, etc., the two main games that currently headline the FGC (Fighting Game Community) are Street Fighter V and Tekken 7.
