The 2012 Top Five

Posted on January 15, 2013 by Broken Joysticks

Editor’s note: Staff at Broken Joysticks will be sharing their top five games, or game related stories, from 2012 throughout the week. We’re continuing the feature with the top five from our editor, kashhoward.

Tekken Tag Tournament 2 | Review

Posted on September 24, 2012 by Jason Fayta

Version tested:  PlayStation 3

Tekken returns to tag after a 12 year hiatus from consoles with Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (hereafter TTT2), the sequel to, that’s right, Tekken Tag Tournament. 12 years is a long time to wait for a proper follow-up to one of the more popular entries in the venerable Tekken series; does Namco Bandai drop the Tekken Ball or is TTT2 the new King of the Iron Fist?

TTT2 is the eighth main installment in the Tekken series and it is a non-canon entry, like the original Tekken Tag Tournament. TTT2 embraces its dream match premise, and in turn the roster has ballooned to a whopping 59 characters, with six of those available at a later date as free downloadable content. And if you’re wondering, Gon from Tekken 3 is not one of those 59 fighters; you’ll have to make do with Alex if you’re all about fighting dinosaurs.Read More

Posted on August 20, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Namco Bandai’s next King of Iron Fist tournament, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, drops late next month and we’re finally getting a look at some of the game’s online modes.

Modes like ranked matches, casual play are of course expected but Namco is taking a new approach to the online community with the inclusion of the Tekken World Federation. The federation allows players to track their statistics, including their most frequent moves & fighters, using an elaborate player card. World Tekken Federation also allows fighters to start their own communities to share moves, hints and strategies.

Check out all of the details in video form in the trailer below.
