Street Fighter X Tekken Hands On Preview

Following the Sony press conference Jason got some hands on time with Capcom's latest fighter.

Capcom's latest fighter is clearly based on the latest iteration of the Street Fighter series, Super Street Fighter IV. Players familiar with that experience will be able to easily hop into this one as the two play extremely similarly. The exception here is that the game offers tag team play, which does alter the dynamic of the play experience to a degree.

The thing to take note of here, is just how smooth the game feels. Controlling the fighters and performing the various attacks feels great and also looks great as well. Notably, the game looks even sharper than Street Fighter, which is nice to see considering it's clearly based on the existing engine.

Overall, the short play experience demonstrated that the game is coming along well and should provide a fighting experience hardcore fans can enjoy.

You two are exactly right, which is why tomorrow, JD, our staffer much more versed in competitive fighters, is going to be taking a serious look at the game. Check back then for much better details!

Final Fantasy V Review Rewind

There are several similarities between Final Fantasy V and its younger sibling, Final Fantasy III. Chiefly of which, both games stayed exclusively in Japan well after the series moved on to the PlayStation in the mid-90s. For a time, Square Enix (formally SquareSoft) was uncertain if western audiences would grasp the deeper gameplay mechanics that drove character growth. But after the global success of Final Fantasy VII, they decided it was time to start bridging the gap in sequels in the US lineup. As a result, Final Fantasy V was the first to be released as part of the Final Fantasy Anthology compilation on the PlayStation in 1999.
