The 10 best fighting games on PC

Hey you, I heard your breath smells like a fart. What are you gonna do about it? Fight me!? Excellent. I was hoping you’d say that, because I’ve put together a list of the 10 best fighting games on PC, and it would be fantastic if you came and had a look, gave your thoughts, and maybe elbowed me in the teeth while you’re at…

Zafina the astrologist turns her hand to Tekken 7, plus new moves for everyone else

Hello biffers, your Mars is in ascendance. That astrologist you consulted about your mortgage now has a relatable character to use in punchsome fighting game Tekken 7. Zafina is a purple clad fighter with a keen interest in the stars circling your head after she knocks you the flip out. She also has a giant claw for a hand, because what self-respecting Gemini doesn't have…

Feature: Listen to our family traditions

Podcast: It’s a family thing

 "Family is all", a wise man once said. And then he half-drowned his nephew in a bucket of ice water, but let's forget about that bit. The sentiment is what's important. Families can be good and bad, dysfunctional or helpful. This is as true in videogames as in life. So that's what we're podcasting about this week. The brothers, mothers, aunts and cousins we…

Tekken 7’s new character is Ip Man with dreadlocks

Barnstorming punch ‘em up Tekken 7 is getting a new knuckle sandwich artist, developers Bandai Namco have announced. He’s a calm-looking martial fightist who lost his family in a gang conflict in New York and went missing for 50 years, only to reappear in the following videogame trailer at fighting game championship EVO 2019. It looks like he’s been hanging out in Hong Kong, because…

Julia and The Walking Dead’s Negan hit Tekken 7 next week

Tekken 7 gets just that little bit weirder on February 28th, as live-streaming pugilist Julia Chang gets extremely online in the ring. Baseball-bat swinging warlord Negan from The Walking Dead makes the leap along with her. Together, they wrap up the second season of the Bandai Namco arcade fighter's DLC. In any other fighter these two would probably seem like oddballs, but Tekken 7's cast…

The best Tekken player in the world is a panda

A panda won the Tekken World Tour grand finals this weekend, rampaging through its opponents with all the anti-human rage you might expect of an endangered species. I say “panda”, I mean professional fighterman Hyeon-ho Jeong of South Korea, aka 'Rangchu', who mauled his way through the top 20 Tekken 7 players in the world using the black-eyed animal as a fighty pal. Eventually, ‘Rangchu’…

Armor King and Marduk come to Tekken 7 today (and Julia is on her way)

Marduk, the angry criminal who missed leg day, and Armor King, the only wrestler unsporting enough to wear chainmail to a fight, are coming to Tekken 7 today. A third knuckle cruncher is also coming some time later: native American Julia Chang, who has undergone a redesign and is now an ecologically-concerned streamer. The new biffers were announced by director Katsuhiro Harada at the Tekken…

Feature: Listen now or be punted

Podcast: What game has the most satisfying kick?

 Can you kick it? Yes, you can. Can you punt a ram? Yes, you can. Can you listen to the RPS podcast, aka the Electronic Wireless Show, as they talk about the best kicks in videogames? Yes, I already told you, of course you can. From the powerful hoof of Kassandra in the new Assassin’s Creed Odyssey to the zombie-launching boot of Dying Light,…

Tekken 7 fighters get buff in season 2 patch notes

Stop hitting yourself. Stop hitting yourself. OK, listen, please stop hitting yourself, just for a second. I have Tekken 7 news. The demon-thumping biff ‘em up is getting a big update this week, alongside its second season of characters, and it has released the patch notes for it’s current characters. As is customary for fighting games, there are a lot of tiny adjustments to frame…

Six more characters headed to Tekken 7 including The Walking Dead’s Negan

As anyone who stayed up last night to watch the Evo 2018 finals can tell you, fighting games are wild right now. Massive upsets, big comebacks and surprise announcements abound, and few as surprising as Tekken 7's second season pass. Announced during the game's finals last night, there's another six characters headed to Bandai Namco's fighter, three of which have been confirmed. Returning from earlier…

Virtual fisticuffs festival Evo 2018 is streaming live through the weekend

Held at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas, thousands trade blows across eight major games (plus a fair few minor ones) in search of fame, glory, and big cash prizes. Evo's doors are open, and the first matches…

Steam Summer Sale recommendations: 2018 edition!

The old quote is wrong: neither death nor taxes are, it seems to me, as terrifyingly certain as the Steam Summer Sale. Yes, once more we can add to the heap that is our backlog by buying games for, what, five quid, on average? But there are so many to choose from that it's easy to get flustered, so who better than the staff of…

Tekken to the catwalk: judging the new birthday outfits

Brendan: Fisticuffs game Tekken 7 celebrates its first birthday today and is gifting players some free costumes, hairstyles, effects and props to use in the fighting game’s silly-yet-joyful character customiser. As a strong adherent of fashion in the world of the Iron Fist, I am duty-bound to inspect these new bits and pieces with the critical eye of a trendsetting face-puncher. I’m joined now by…

Tekken 7 celebrates a year of fisticuffs with fancy dress

One of the best things about recent Tekken games is their genuinely impressive degree of character customisation. While you might be limited to a base character model - you're not going to be making your own character from scratch - there are a truly enormous number of outfits, accessories and downright silly costume pieces that you can slap onto them to show off online. To…

Podcast: What character do you always end up creating?

You look a little tired, friend. Let me just adjust this slider for you. There, wide awake. Now you’ve got some energy, how about listening to the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show? This week we’re talking about character creation. Which games spoil us with choice? And why do we always end up creating the same sneaky elf?

Feature: Listen to us with your brain turned off

Podcast: Being a critic makes games better (and worse)

Oh no. Somebody sound the “journalists discussing journalism” klaxon. Rattle it as loudly and furiously as possible, because the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, is talking about how being a critic changes the way we play. Don’t blame us, blame listener Aleksei, who sent in the theme as a suggestion. But please also forgive Adam, because it’s his last showing on the podcast (he’s…

Noct out with a fish: my quest to K.O. someone in Tekken with a tuna

Noctis Lucis Caelum is the young monarch of Final Fantasy XV. He has a double-barrelled surname and a lot of invisible swords. He has also made a guest appearance in Tekken 7. These are two ridiculous worlds I like to inhabit in the evenings, so it makes sense to write about this crossover event. But there needs to be an angle. I need a hook.…

Final Fantasy XV’s Noctis bowls into Tekken 7 today

While resident buttonmasher Brendan is busy in San Francisco, it falls to me to tell you that Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis Lucis Caelum today arrived in Tekken 7 as the latest DLC character. "Noctis's occupation is listed as: formally opening swimming pools and shopping centres," Brendan might say, with that air of authority he has when making ludicrous claims about fighting game characters. "Likes:…

It’s basically a massive Allfather competition encompassing a bunch of baby Tekken tournaments held all over the world.
