'We can let you in on information we don't tell people' - The Bandai Namco EVO 2015 panel details all things Tekken 7

While there was the Killer Instinct panel during EVO, there was also a Bandai Namco panel that revealed much about the intricacies behind Tekken 7.

This includes details on American and European location tests, the arcade business model and why it's important to Tekken, countless questions surrounding the character roster, console details, and more.

Smug and Imstilldadaddy go head to head for $1000 in the Red Bull salty suite - Who will come out on top?

During all of the EVO excitement over the weekend, there was also the behind the scenes excitement of the EVO salty suite. And in this area of salt and tension, a very intense first to ten was played between PIE|Smug and Imstilldadaddy, both men competing for $1000.

This 38 minute Dudley versus Guile smackdown is full of tense moments, clutch comebacks, high execution combos and on the spot reactions. It's certainly a treat to watch, especially for those who missed it during EVO itself. A piano version of Guile's theme can be heard, played live in the background, if you listen closely...

Hit the jump for the match in full.

'He stole his soul, he just reached out and grabbed it' - James Chen on Alex Valle's amazing victory over Bonchan at EVO 2015

To focus the scope a bit, 44.8% of EventHubs users have rated Sagat vs Hugo a 7-3 match up in favor of Sagat. Pepper in the detail that Bonchan is probably the world's best Sagat player, and you might skew those numbers even a little more in Sagat's favor.

Despite these odds, LU|Alex Valle sat down and became the embodiment of adaptation for just under four minutes. Known for once holding the crown as king of the American FGC during a previous generation, Valle granted us a quick reprise of such days in his match with Bonchan.

Using a character that many have deemed to have some of the most lop-sided match ups in the game, Valle swiftly navigated Bonchan's maze of normals and projectiles. He showed onlookers a version of this match up that almost all of us, including Bonchan, had never seen.

Expertly-placed normals, perfect reads and an unrelenting, forward march led Alex Valle to both a four-round victory and into the graces of crowd. You can see it all in the video after the jump.

Dave and Buster's will be featuring Pokkén Tournament in the United States

Pokkén Tournament was just recently released in Japanese arcades. There has been little talk about North America getting its hands on the new fighter, until now.

The Senior Vice President of Entertainment and Game Strategy at Dave & Buster’s, Kevin Bachus, has started an Ask Me Anything on Reddit, and has revealed that Dave and Buster's plans to feature Pokkén Tournament in its arcades.

Bachus states, "We will be testing Pokken. Candidly both NAMCO and I are more optimistic about that title and our typical guests than Tekken." There is no official time frame yet as to when this will actually happen.

Surely Pokémon's draw on younger audiences piques D&B's interest in the game for their more family-oriented arcades. You can hit the jump below to see some game play footage of the new title.

Snake Eyez officially signs with Red Bull

It's been a long time coming, but top Ultra Street Fighter 4 player Darryl "Snake Eyez" Lewis has officially signed with Red Bull.

Lewis, a Zangief specialist, won the Street Fighter 2 HD Remix tournament at EVO in 2010, placed in the top eight of Ultra Street Fighter 4 at last year's EVO, and participated in the Capcom Cup Finals last December. He broke the news via twitter just minutes ago: Though we've seen him in contact at some capacity with Red Bull, it wasn't until now that the partnership became official. Perhaps USF4's nearly 250k viewership numbers at this year's EVO is in, part, to thank. In any case, we wish Mr. Lewis the best of luck in his well-deserved partnership with Red Bull.

He creates his own interactables, has a variation within a variation and can hit low while up in the air; Sajam breaks down Tremor in Mortal Kombat X

Tremor is the final DLC character for the first Kombat Pack in Mortal Kombat X. He officially arrived just yesterday, and has a handful of traits that make unique from traditional Mortal Kombat fighters.

Superman Sajam has wasted no time in creating a breakdown video, showcasing Tremor's moves, variations and basic tools. Sajam notes that Tremor's mobility is very average, but the character shines in his ability to launch opponents into damaging combos.

Tremor is interesting in that most of his attacks are actually in multiple variations. Where other characters might only have a projectile in one variant, Tremor gains a projectile in each of his variations, but each version has a specific attribute.

Tremor's Crystalline variation allows him to produce his own interactable stone, which can be thrown or leapt from by either Tremor or his opponent. With his array of ground pounds, including the ability to do so from the air, Tremor looks to be a strong kombatant.

'The game that's taken more quarters from children than every bully combined' - Honest Game Trailers goes in on the Street Fighter franchise

It's been long overdue, but we finally have it. Smosh Games has done an Honest Game Trailer on the Street Fighter franchise, or to some, "The game you played because your mom wouldn't let you play Mortal Kombat".

Many times when companies that are not directly associated with the fighting game community give their input on titles like Street Fighter, it becomes very quickly apparent that their knowledge of the game goes about as deep as "I played it when I was growing up."

Smosh have a reputation for hitting the nail on the head with HGT, and they live up that reputation in their spot-on analysis of everything Street Fighter.

Their jokes are ones that you'd hear within the inner circles of the FGC, such as the excess of different versions for SF games, online lag and Capcom's overtly stereotypical characters. Hit the jump below to see Honest Game Trailers' take on Street Fighter.

London arcade pleads for help from the community after £5,000 worth of gaming goods are stolen

Anyone lucky enough to have, or have had, the privilege of attending a modern arcade will know that competing with the leisure of online gaming is not an easy business.

Often times these arcades are the glue that hold pockets of the fighting game community together, and so when tragedy such as yesterday's burglary at Heart of Gaming in North Acton, London occurs, it's devastating.

Over £5,000, about $7,800, worth of next generation consoles and monitors were taken from the arcade. The owners of HoG have started a GoFundMe in an attempt to compensate for their losses.

If you can sympathize, and are able to contribute in any way, please help out your fellow community members in their season of struggle. While this is certainly an instance characterized by negativity and loss, let's look at it more so as a time of opportunity to show off a strong presence of community.

Thank you to Jimmy The Cow, SonOfABtchStick and an anonymous tipper for the submissions.
