Let’s get ready to POKKEN!!!!!!!

 

Pokken Tournament, the love child between Pokemon and Tekken has been born! In Pokken Tournament, you fight as various Pokemon in a one-on-one, fighting game style similar to Tekken.

Here are a few images I dug-up online (sorry for the poor quality):

Blaziken.

Not much else is known about this game other than it is for sure coming out in Japanese arcades in 2015.

I’m hoping it will feature ALL 51 fighting-type Pokemon because I would LOVE to rock me some Hitmoncham, Primeape, Toxicroak and Hawlucha! I can TOTALLY see Mewtwo-X making an appearance as well.

To witness this wicked game in action, check-out the “first look” trailer below!

Which fighting-types would you play as?

Amazon buys Twitch for $1 billion

amazon

 

Amazon, the online store for everything, has purchased Twitch, the world’s largest videogame streaming community for a whopping $ 1 billion (approximately).

The purpose of this purchase (try saying that 5X fast) is to help Amazon creep past YouTube and Netflix when it comes to offering online video content to younger audiences. Google had talked about purchasing the online streaming company for some time but the deal never happened. That’s when Amazon stepped in and sealed the deal, making it one of Amazon’s biggest acquisitions to date.

Amazon’s current online video service, Amazon Instant Video, is similar to Netflix in that it offers movie rentals and streaming video for a monthly fee. It will be interesting to see what they do with Twitch and the plethora of free user-generated content found on the site everyday.

But what changes will happen to Twitch itself? According to Twitch CEO Emmett Shear… nothing. Twitch will remain an independent entity, but will only be made better thanks to the newly gained Amazon resources and support. Let’s hope that stays true.

So look forward to an even better Twitch experience! Coming soon to a computer near you.

Our Take
I'm a huge Mega Man X fan, something regular readers will likely be fully aware. It's been years since I played either of these games, so I can't wait to have them on a portable platform.
