Tekken 7

The latest entry of the Tekken series, Tekken 7, has been released in Japanese arcades earlier this year and pretty much no one outside Japan has had the chance to try out the new fighting game from Bandai Namco. However it seems like things are going to change soon, as a Tekken 7 arcade location test has been confirmed for North America today.

According to the Tekken official Facebook page, the Tekken 7 North American location test will be held in select Dave & Busters this month. The Round 1 locations have also been confirmed.

Tekken 7 is the latest entry of the Tekken series and it’s been produced by series’ creator Katsuhiro Harada. The game focuses on 1 on 1 battles and sports several new gameplay mechanics such as the Rage Art, which allows players to execute unblockable moves once their health bar is critical, and the Power Crush, which allows fighters to continue their attacks even while being hit by the enemy. Movement has also undergone some changes.

The Tekken 7 character roster is incredibly varied and sports several new comers such as Katarina Alves, Italian fighter Claudio, the otaku Lucky Chloe, the Saudi Arabian fighter Shaheen and several returning characters such as Jin Kazama, Kazuya Mishima, Paul Phoenix, Yoshimitsu, Heihachi Mishima, Hwoarang, Ling Xiaoyu and others.

Tekken 7 is now available in Japanese arcades and the North American location test will begin this month in select locations. News on a console release are scarce at the moment but we will definitely hear more about the matter soon so stay tuned for all the latest news on Bandai Namco’s latest fighting game.

Disney Speedstorm, Gameloft’s free-to-play kart racer, will enter its latest season with a wintery backdrop of Arendelle. Let It Go will add Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff, and Hans as racers. As always, they’ll have unique moves and abilities.

Oaken and other musical movie crew members will be unlocked, along with a new Golden Pass. After fan feedback, the developer is rebalancing this aspect of the release so you can progress faster and unlock more rewards.

The developer also announced on Twitter that it’s lowering in-game shop prices starting today, and if you’ve paid for microtransactions, you’ll get a big payout. The French studio appears to be betting on this season’s success.

Adding non-Frozen characters Oswald, Ortensia, and WALL-E could also help. A comprehensive game update should bring back lapsed players and attract new ones. Will you challenge the kart racer?

New Destiny 2 Microtransaction Is Bad Bungie Removed It from PS5, PS4

Bungie has pulled a contentious $15 starter pack from Season of the Wish, which launched yesterday. The pack had a poor selection and was marketed to new players, which the community strongly opposed.

The starter pack proudly stated that players could “experience the power of build-defining Exotic weapons by instantly unlocking three of Destiny 2’s finest: Traveler’s Chosen, Ruinous Effigy, and Sleeper Simulant.” An exotic ship, a sparrow, a ghost shell, 125,000 glimmer, 50 enhancement cores, five enhancement prisms, and one ascendant shard are also included.

This offering may seem harmless to a new player, but Forbes’ Paul Tassi says, “You sort of have to be a Destiny 2 player to understand what an outrageously bad deal this is.” The Forsaken Pack, another Bungie release, includes two dozen Exotics, a dungeon, and a raid. It cost $20 and is now $5. It looks bad, from what we can tell.

Guardians retaliated with negative Steam reviews. They orchestrated the DLC page to include “Capitalism,” “Crime,” and “Psychological Horror” user tags, which is funny.

After Bungie pulled the pack, Redditor Grizz3d summarized the community response: “I don’t get how that starter pack was approved. What part of stealing from new players wasn’t going to result in community outrage? Bungie’s disconnect with players is shocking. I’m glad you got rid of the pack, but it’s disappointing that Bungie thought it was a good idea.”

This follows the Witcher 3 crossover armour sets, which look great but are expensive. Sony’s independent live service outpost is in danger due to a delayed expansion and studio layoffs.

Sony announced last year that it would plant trees for Horizon Forbidden West PlayStation fans who unlocked a simple trophy in the open-world game. This, in partnership with several charities, sought to protect the global environment and biodiversity.

Over a year later, it released a trailer showing its progress. The company has planted 600,000 trees worldwide, restoring 1,800 acres. More importantly, the gaming industry has planted 2.5 million trees worldwide.

Gaming is fun, but we must protect our world. Sony has taken steps to be more environmentally friendly, such as adding energy-saving features to the PS5 and shipping all its products in fully recyclable packaging.
