I cannot wait for Tekken 7.

It's really really good. The slowmo at the end made me actually jump up my seat when I landed the final hit.
I had no issue with the load times. I'm not sure if Devil Jin has been changed somewhat. I had difficulty with some of his combo's. But that may just be me forgetting how to do them. Jin and Asuka's combo's were still fine for me to excute.
I'm looking forward to getting absolutely destroyed in this game.

A hell of a lot faster than SFV, at least on the 'Eddie' build I played.

I haven't played Tekken seriously since 5 and turns out that was a really long time ago, so I'm willing to give it another chance.

Good thing I have no loving clue who I want to play because that would've been just way too easy.

e: also I don't remember my TZ password and can't reset it because the email associated with it hasn't existed in like a decade

$80 + tax for the Deluxe Edition that only gets you two DLC characters.

I really want this game but will just skip the DLC characters until there is a sale on them. Did anyone get to play the arcade version?

I think you should be safe because aren't the 2 DLC character's basically scheduled for December 2017 / summer 2018??? And unless one of them really is Kazama Kiryu I don't know if it's worth preordering them in June.

HI I've never seriously played Tekken before but I'm all in and will play Leo because apparently she's easy to learn and also super good, so that's good enough for me

I think I will also be playing Leo. Or maybe Asuka.

I played Paul in my limited time with 6 and ttt2 but I think i want someone who's a little more well-rounded and less reliant on mixups.

Been playing bryan since Tekken 5, but only recently started using a fightstick when I gave SFV a try. Wonder if I should go with the stick and have execution problems for a while or bitch it out and go with a ds4.

I main Leo, and she's a really good character to learn the game with, and has tools for every situation. Also the non-binary gender thing she has going on enrages nerds, which is a bonus, I'mma give her a moustache.

I never played Tekken for real, but I liked playing Panda in TTT2 even though it was just a few fights against friends. Panda is gonna be top tier and you know it.

No but for real though, if I want to play Kuma/Panda what should I know?

How bullshit is the arcade boss? Azezel or whatever from 6 was TERRIBLE and don't give me any bullshit about how easy he was, it was utter dogshit and just because there was an easy way to cheese the stinkyhole doesn't negate that fact.

Is Story Mode this version of Tekken Force? Because 6 was sublime to go through as Dragunov whilst tackling dudes and snapping arms. I want more of that.

I feel like King and Armor King are different enough that they're not clone characters. I started playing AK because I thought King looked cool, but didn't like how he played. I can understand if he's not in the game though, there are plenty of other characters I want to play, so it's fine. I'm still holding out hope for DLC...

I think if you're planning to play Kuma then you're probably not planning to take the game very seriously so it mostly doesn't matter. That said, I play Kuma as kind of a secondary dickaround character and he basically works really well against people who haven't played enough to know how to fight Kuma, and then he immediately becomes terrible when they figure it out. Fortunately some people never figure it out!

Poke with d/b+2 and G-clef confirms, use mixups from HBS to keep people off balance and guessing, and make sure you try to fart on people now and then because if you land it you'll be a legend.

(Newbie translation guide:)

- d/b+2 is a quick low poke with good range that you should annoy people with so they'll be obligated to try to block low more, which lets you do your stronger mids and get them to actually hit.
- "G-clef Cannon" is f+1,1,1 -- it's a 3-hit string that starts with a really fast poke, and if that poke is a counterhit, the rest of the string is a natural combo that launches. This means you can use f+1 as a quick poke, but you can also hitconfirm it into good damage by doing the rest of the string.
- "HBS" is Hunting Bear Stance, which is when Kuma is on all fours like some kind of bear. He has lots of low/mid options from this stance and many of his other moves will let him transition into the stance if you input 3+4 during them. Players who aren't comfortable fighting Kuma will tend to freeze up when you're in their face with HBS and you can smack them around a lot from it for that reason.
- Fart is one of 2 one-hit-KO unblockables in the game. It's super slow and obvious and they basically have to be actively walking into you to get hit by it, but sometimes people panic and try to hit you out of it and end up getting farted on and you get to make fun of them forever.

A lot of players used her as a secondary to their main in Tag 2, because she was a great partner for most of the cast.

I'd say she's mid-popularity overall? Not many people were using her in 6. Now King....
