In case you haven’t seen. I’ve worked on a few homage merchandise pieces, influenced by some of my favorite video games.
This 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
At this past EVO 2016, I announced a special project that I’ve been working on. EVO JAPAN. I had the honor to make the announcement alongside two individuals that are pillars within the gaming industry & for fighting games, Mr. Katsuhiro Harada (TEKKEN) and Mr. Yoshinori Ono (Street Fighter). More information will be announced at this coming Tokyo Game Show in September.
Looking forward to Square-Enix’s I am Setsuna in July! The title is billed as a homage to the Japanese RPGs of yesteryear, specifically Chrono Trigger, which it’s battle system is inspired from. I can’t wait! The title will be released on PC and PlayStation 4. Check out the teaser trailer and screenshots below!
The 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!
I had the honor of hosting the ‘Pokkén Tournament’ Invitational from the Pokémon World Championships last month. Along with xD1x on commentary, we were able to showcase the title officially with some of the gaming community! The Pokémon Company International just uploaded some of the footage to YouTube for your viewing pleasure! Click below to check out all the action!
The good folks at Bandai Namco Ent. uploaded a recap video from EVO 2015! Are you excited for more TEKKEN 7?
Life is a lot busier than I thought it would be at this time of year. Mostly in good ways. I haven’t been able to post here often but I’ve been at it on twitter and instagram. I have until mid-next week to have some “me” time so I’ll definitely be catching up with this site and everything I love until I’m off and around the world again. Keep following. I promise I’ll have some cool stuff for you.
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. I’m going to think hard over the next few days as I’m actually on vacation (yay) and want to come up with some relevant data to present to the peeps in the street. Here’s what I’m thinking so far for my year in review!
