rzrThis past November I officially contracted with Razer as a consultant for their initiatives with the fighting game community & for their fighting game related products. Razer is global brand that leads by example with their design, innovation and constant evolution of the gaming experience. For gamers, by gamers. I couldn’t be happier to join such a great team as we venture to helping grow the fighting game genre to the next level. Razer’s CEO, Min-Liang Tan and I originally talked about the fighting game community at E3 2016 in passing by. It was a great conversation that had an impact on me. His understanding of the balance between business & community really showed me that he had a deep appreciation for the game & everything that comes with it. Shortly after the announcement of teaming up with Razer, we announced the Razer Panthera for PlayStation 4. For more information on Razer’s new PS4 arcade stick head to: rzr.to/panthera

madcatzThe good people at GameStart Asia announced new stages and characters for their newly released iOS / Android compatible retro action title, GameStart 2015 – The Game! The latest update features Mad Catz themed stages and new playable character ‘MARKMAN’ — a hero who uses his love for FightSticks and sneakers to battle the forces of evil, lol. 🙂 

You can find more information on the title at this link. Check out the video trailer below as well!

JOSIEI forgot to post about this when it was first announced as I’ve been very busy with work… If you know me, you’ll know I’m very passionate about video games. I’m especially fond of fighting games. The TEKKEN series is one of my favorite franchises of all time and the fighting game that introduced me to competitive gaming.

Introducing TEKKEN 7’s newest fighter… Josie Rizal. The first character of Philippine descent in the TEKKEN series. Her name is a tribute to one of the heroes of the Philippines, Dr. Jose Rizal. I was very happy to help work on this and name this character with the TEKKEN Project Team. =D Thanks Harada-san & team for involving me!

If you’re interested in trying out TEKKEN 7, I’ll be bringing the game to upcoming events with Mad Catz. This weekend we’ll be in Houston for Texas Showdown 2015 and later this month we’ll be at Combo Breaker 2015 in Chicago during memorial day weekend! Get ready for the next battle!

With 2014 coming to an end, I already find myself reminiscing over the last year. The emotion highs and lows. Success and failure. What could have been and what’s to come. So much to think about.
