    We know there are a ton of pissed off Tekken fans out there, those who were waiting on the 16th, the 23rd, and NOW the 30th. But will it be worth the wait to you? I’m sure all Tekken fans will be pleased next week, and the really hardcore Tekken nuts(like us here) have already been playing since Aug. 1st… So we would like to apologize, sympathize, and welcome you all (who haven’t played it yet), to a historic first(and certainly not the last) moment of online Tekken gaming!

    We will be opening up our MATCHFINDER area soon, so be sure to sign up!


    oh bout fuckin time.. betta be this time. plus,makes sure they cleans up all lags n glitches over online. i’m sick n tired of people who use glitches in tha game just like they fucked up in capcom’s street fighter series that makes them wins easily in previous old arcade and home consoles.

    Based on our extensive play testing with T5DR ONLINE, be prepared to see a LOT of flip abusing Lili players in addition to good amounts of Eddy/Christie!

    dont forget the ever so enjoyable throw action! :D

  5. genjuro says:

    MARKMAN, honestly hows the lag when you played it. can you pull off quick moves easily wihtout no lag ??

  6. MarkMan says:

    If you have an excellent connection (green bars), and you’re relatively close to your opponent, you can pull off moves normally..

    I was able to do this juggle online when I played against a friend in the same area:

    u/f+4, f+2,2, 1, 1, iSW

    If that doesn’t show how good the game can be, I don’t know what can…

  8. engtech says:

    Do they still release the Tekkens as arcade games, not just console?

    I’ve always enjoyed beating down complete strangers face-to-face more

    Cannot wait my online handle is NDWolfwood3769 and charector of choice for goin on 10 years is Kazuya. Dying to fight and I do have to applause Namco for making this upgrade only 10 bucks. If only Sega would follow suite and make an update like this for VF5 on PS3 there would be no need to own another console.
    Also just out of curiousity who prefers the pad over the Arcade stick?
    There are a lot of fighters especially on the IMDB’s board who say they can’t play without a “normal” PS controller. Where as I can play with both but prefer the Arcade Stck. Currently using the Hori Fighting Stick 3

  16. Nymphetamine says:

  18. GeassTekken says:

    oh and how did you get a picture of me when i heard the news?????!!!!! LOL jk jk

  19. FunkyCypress says:

    MarkMan what do you recommend for a stick. I agree that the button layout for the Hori Fighting Stick 3 sucks. However I notice it in VF, due to needing a block button, and not so much in Tekken. I just want to know what would be a good stick for both games the VF board recommends the hori arcade stick. Which so you use for Tekken?
    I was trying to get a new one to break in before Tekken goes online…
