Lone Wolf: A Talk With Japanese Player OGTY About Playing Killer Instinct & The Upcoming Release In His Homeland

Various Killer Instinct players group together at EVO 2014. OGTY featured in the bottom middle.When it comes to fighting games in Japan, Sony's PlayStation consoles have been the platforms to play and practice on when not in an arcade. Microsoft's Xbox consoles generally haven't been received, or sold, as well as the PlayStation but has its small share of folks including top Street Fighter IV players. For many other fighters, though, developers are more likely to make a game for the PlayStation only. In addition to the console preference, fighting game players in the land of the rising sun tend to engage in games made in their homeland despite efforts of U.S. developers.

There are, however, competitors who make up the minority by playing outside the status quo. Takuma "OGTY" Oguchi is part of that minority. The Japanese player came into recognition following the release of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as one of the dedicated players in the scene. He would contribute in shaping the once modest scene to something more reputable. Along the way, he would also get hands-on with Injustice. Now with help from a handful of players who were able to import Xbox One consoles, OGTY increased his repertoire to Killer Instinct.

Pokkén Tournament Coming to Japanese Arcades in 2015

During a special presentation on Niconico today, Bandai Namco and The Pokémon Company announced an unexpected collaboration titled Pokkén Tournament. Obviously taking cues from the SoulCalibur and Tekken series, Pokkén will be a 3-D Pokémon fighting game set to release in Japanese arcades in 2015. Both Tekken's Katsuhiro Harada and SoulCalibur's Masaaki Hoshino are working on the project.

According to Harada, the game is being designed for both fighting game veterans and new players alike to enjoy, and will not use the Tekken engine. Instead, Pokkén is being designed to focus on the action of combat with the fun of playing the game being the highest priority.

There has been no mention of if or when a console release of Pokkén Tournament is being planned. Check out the first trailer after the jump.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 325 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

After what seems like months of rumors about a potential buyout, Twitch was acquired by Amazon and the cast talked at length about the surprising news and what it could mean for both companies in the future (it could just mean everybody gets Twitch Turbo along with their Amazon Prime subscription, nobody knows). 

Meanwhile, SNK Playmore registered a new Maximum Impact trademark, which lead to conversation about the failings of the older MI games as well as whether this new title is the game SNKP has been advertising jobs for, or if the company is possibly preparing two titles for the future.

The crew also took the closing minutes of the show to complain about Team Brokentier's recent fast food rankings, talking about restaurants that BT missed and creating their own top three lists.

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.

Twitch Purchased by Amazon

After months of rumors, Twitch has finally announced its purchase, but not by Google as originally thought and reported. No, the video game streaming giant has been bought by Amazon. While the Wall Street Journal reported the supposed acquisition early on Aug. 25, Twitch's CEO Emmett Shear has put any doubt to rest:

Today, I’m pleased to announce we’ve been acquired by Amazon. We chose Amazon because they believe in our community, they share our values and long-term vision, and they want to help us get there faster. We’re keeping most everything the same: our office, our employees, our brand, and most importantly our independence. But with Amazon’s support we’ll have the resources to bring you an even better Twitch.

No details of the agreement have been made available at this time, but the WSJ is reporting that the deal will cost Amazon more than $1 billion.
