    I was honestly expecting it pre-release. When every dev video was "It's Tekken 7, but every new mechanic is about rewarded gorilla aggression and punishing/nerfing defence" I thought it was pretty obvious. I am somewhat surprised on how early people turned on the game, though, and I was surprised by how quickly almost all the well known pros said it's a shitty braindead game.

    They aren't doing themselves any favors with the DLC, either. AN entire year of characters that were already in Tekken 8. Lidia is cool, but no one wants an entire season of recycled characters. Especially when it's fricking eddie, marduk and fuhk.

        No one, not even the devs. But they just made them in Tekken 7 and they're massively cutting costs by just pasting them in to Tekken 8. It's absolutely pathetic that they're charging full price for a season of characters recycled from the previous game. At least Street Fighter and Strive are making returning characters from scratch.

          Strive may have plenty of fans, but you can't bring it up anywhere without droves of alleged Guilty Gear veterans coming out to shit on it, on Ganker specifically it's to the point that you basically can't talk about the series at all. People aren't pleased about the current state of T8, but Strive is at absolute minimum in the same ballpark as T8.

            The PS3 version also has PS2 stages which for the most part look better than the PSP variants. And I am sure certain balancing was done too in the PS3 version.

              no the balancing is the same. the PS2 stages though was exclusive to the ps3 version though. they look about the same using emulation as someone ported DR textures from ps3 over to the psp version and it looks great.

              alot of characters in Tag 1 could stand up to bruce. if you actually watch footage of people playing there was alot more teams than just bryan and bruce, mishimas, ogres, changs, even shit like ling/yoshi won tournaments. there was an anna/bear player in top 8 at a few tournaments. i'd watch ANY of those match ups over a kuni mirror that we seen last year or whatever lousy meta T8 has. at least then i get actual movement and tekken fundamentals in my game

        there was juggles, hell even wall to wall with some cahracters. but what made DR's combo structure better was the player choice, in 7/8 your main juggle will go wall to wall as well as do max damage, in DR it was an active choice. as wall carry in general was much lower as well as the wall being alot less friendly. a wall didn't always give you a wall ender. only on a very VERY high splat. most characters that could get a wall hit didn't really convert off it and instead used it for the following mix up. if you wanted wall carry you were giving up damage and most juggle routes consisted of dash jabs for wall carry which from a damage perspective was far FAR from optimal. only some characters like lee and nina were allowed good wall carry.

    It's close to being good. There's a good game under there. They just need to do away with forced 50/50 after heat bullshit and reduce combo damage (especially with walls). You can easily 2-tap someone two launchers into wall. The risk-reward is skewed.

          I won't argue the rest since I dislike both games, but SF6 absolutely has much better netcode than Tekken 8. I have no fricking clue how Namco didn't develop a superior netcode for the game after taking nearly a DECADE to put out the sequel to 7. There is no excuse to have such shoddy online, Tekken 8 absolutely loses to every other major modern fighter in the market in that regard, not just SF6.

    Tekken is an overly defensive game, theres hardly anything that flows in a generally appealing way. have you seen jack in high level play? that shit is boring as frick to watch.

    They game needed something to stop it from being so stale and boring. They probably went a BIT too far with. I'm going to assume that if they give enough of a shit they will fix it in the next few iterations.

    SF6 is a convoluted mess that theyre too moronic to fix so that shit is dead in the water.

    2XKO looks like absolute dogshit too idk what these morons are thinking. dude long combos means anime/marvel fighter doodz. wowee !

    These fricking new games are severely lacking in meaningful interactions along the lines of games like Virtua Fighter or Smash Bros or SF2.

    Its always something into big damage or coin flips. fricking dogshit genere, no wonder they keep trying to convince people to play.

      They made it worse. More moves are just useless, just do heat every round and mash jab, do heat smash, opponent does the same shit.

      T7 was bad but not as moronic as T8. Harada realized Tekken is too grounded with it's martial arts attacks and wanted more crazy moves like you see in 2d fighters, so he made Victor to make the game fun to watch but at the same time nobody wants to fight this unfun homosexual, so everyone just calls the game shit.

              you're right, tekken has zero legacy options compared to street fighter, guilty gear etc. but even then the netcode for T8 is still kinda garbage. literally people are only settling for T8. no one is excited for T8 and it's new changes. personally i'm fine playing older games that i like rather than forcing myself to play an inferior product. especially when T3 has rollback.... if only pof would get off his fat ass and add it to fightcade.

    Tekken isn't even a fighting games, it's always been a 1D knowledge check simulator and I don't mean 1D as in movement, the only ''dimension'' that matters in Tekken is frame data because the game might all be a turn based game with the nonexistence of neutral, it all revolves around remembering numbers and getting punished for not doing so, you could have the best movement ever seen and still lose to mashing spastics if you don't know their numbers since Tekken 7 in particular has dumbed down movement and buffed tracking so much it's almost useless and everyone has braindead wall carry combos that do 70% of your health + coinflip for game on your wakeup should one touch you. It's not a fighting game, it's not appealing as a fighting game. It's core audience is literally people who probably don't like actual fighting games, theres like no cross section of players that play both Tekken and other fighters.

        Hwo is a cheese character that you have to lab or else he scrubs you out. You can see a bunch of moves where he starts mid then goes high. It's super gay but you have to quickly duck and do your fastest while standing move.

        There are plenty of gaps in all of that, you simply need to duck or sidestep at the right time.

      I once fought a Hwo like this and he scrubbed the floor with me. When I rematched him, learned his shit and wrecked him he plugged on me like a little b***h lmao

      I bought a new computer in part because despite running at 2k 60fps the game would CONSTANTLY crash every 3 or so matches. The game is just fricked for some people and Bamco specifically went out of their way to not adress the issue or put the responsibility on the player. Just look up tekken 8 polaris crash and you'll see how fricked the game is for tons of people
