Namco is "tekken" its time with this one
by Vaughn Smith

May 17, 2006 - It's been a year since we first saw the screens of Tekken 6 and another E3 has come and gone with almost nothing revealed from Namco regarding the next iteration of their popular fighting franchise. We do know that the Tekken 6, like the others in the series, will remain Sony exclusive.

With an armload of new screens, we can tell you that where I waxed poetic about the smoothness of the character models last year, this year it's quite clear that those first images were pre-rendered. You'll notice an abundance of "jaggies" in the shots located in Media, but just remember that they are early and not indicative of the final product.

The instant Namco reveals more, we'll post it.

May 2005 - Why is it no matter what fighting game you play, you always say "Tastes like Tekken." Okay so that joke wasn't particular fleshed out, it's late and I spent the evening in the emergency room with my boy.

Anyway, the roster for the PS3 reads like a whos who of who was/is popular on the current gen of consoles. It's all about name recognition and in the case of Namco, the Tekken name brings along a history that has spanned what will be three consoles and a decade of kicking ass both at home and in the arcades.

These images are clearly to tease us folks. Look at the pores. Look at the details. It's like Namco is daring us to find a jagged line anywhere and we just can't do it. Yes it's safe to safe that the PS3 will be anti-aliased up the USB port. No doubt.

Gawk for now. We'll have more details shortly.
