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.

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.

Critics and fans alike went crazy for Amazon’s take on the famous role-playing game series Fallout. There were a lot of nominations for 16 Emmy awards, including Best Actor and Outstanding Drama Series. The show was able to reach audiences outside of gamers and got a lot of attention from the industry.

Eurogamer has been keeping track, and now that all the votes are in, Fallout is tied for fifth place with 23 nominations for the 76th Emmy Awards, which are put on by the US Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. With 25, The Bear has the most nominations, followed by True Detective: Night Country with 23, and Shogun with 19.

It shouldn’t be a surprise that Walton Goggins is up for Best Actor for his performance as The Ghoul. Although games will always be our first choice, it’s great that adaptations of games don’t have to be awful, and we can’t wait for the next season of the shows.

Are you surprised by how well Amazon’s version of Fallout has done in the mainstream? Is the curse of movies based on video games finally over? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.
