10/14/17 - YouTube content coming soon

posted Oct 14, 2017, 1:16 AM by Tyler Bustinza

I'm not dead yet. I have a Claudio video in the queue and still planning the Lars breakdown. Thinking of the Lars video makes me really want to do the same for Gigas, converting my Gigas recommendations to video format. I'll see if I have time for that though...

7/11/17 - Evo week!!!

posted Jul 11, 2017, 3:17 PM by Tyler Bustinza

First things first, the beginner series is still in the works and I hope to have it done sometime in August.

Secondly, it's towards the end but I'm hosting my first Tekken Q&A on /r/Tekken since this time last year. Go ahead and check that out if you have any TTT2 or T7 questions just in time for Evo!


Lastly, I'll be at Las Vegas for Evo this week starting tomorrow (Wednesday the 12th). Like always, if you're going to be in the area and want to play casuals, hang out, or meet up, just holler at me on any of the social medias like usual.

1/15/17 - New series for Beginners?

posted Jan 15, 2017, 2:11 AM by Tyler Bustinza

Hey guys, long time no see. I've been helping out a couple of new Tekken players new to the NorCal scene and I've seen a few things that are definitely holding them back and would imagine these same things are holding back other new players as well. Unfortunately with how the YellowMotion situation was taken, it puts a hamper on plan for setting up this series. So far with how I've handled my Tekken 7 videos so far, I've used Namco's official videos and effectively made speculatory videos. Not quite as "trashy" as pure reaction but ultimately I'm dependent on third-party content to make Tekken 7 videos.

With that being said, similar to generic reaction videos that litter YouTube, they're effectively protected through copyright laws presuming a few things, the most commonly being: A) They're a parody B) They're educational C) They're supplementary. In my case, the reason my viewers watch my videos aren't for the third-party content, they're watching trying to learn something that they may not actually know. Also I do realize that in the case of YellowMotion specifically is that he rehosts other people's content (disregarding the recent anti-group rants of course) and otherwise makes questionable edits/changes which really stretches the line of where original content creation and stealing is.

Ultimately, what I'm trying to get to, is that I need to make a decision. Do I use third-party footage (for instance generic match footage) and highlight things to look out for while risking because called a content thief? Do I wait for Tekken 7 to come out of console which as of yesterday, has been somewhat officially confirmed as delayed? Do I use TTT2 which might be instantly disregarded by newer players when Tekken 7 is released, although will still be pertinent? Do I do a combination of the two, use both TTT2 for the primary footage and use Tekken 7 footage as a very small supplement (e.g. <15%)?

So I'm in a weird place. I want to make the series but the amount of time I'll need to invest without using raw, third-party Tekken 7 footage might be incredibly prohibitive. So much so that at that point, I might as well restart Project 62.

If you're not already watching the KotIF tournament, it's not too late. Watch the Grand Finals, coming up soon:

10/12/16 - SCR and a new video

posted Oct 12, 2016, 11:20 PM by Tyler Bustinza

In case you haven't seen it, Namco has officially announced Miguel for Tekken 7. Check out the official video below:


Now I never really played Miguel very much and probably Tekken 6 was probably the last time I played seriously, so I'm not going to release some junk video to spam your inboxes. Instead I noticed quite a few things immediately while watching the video and would like to talk about FR and the state of Tekken 7 as a whole.

Now it'd be great to release it this weekend but...


Is this weekend and I'll be attending that!

So if you're in the area and want to meet, feel free to contact me either via the site or TZ, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, Reddit, etc.

My Lee preview video is now available, check it out already!




8/17/2016 - Lee Chaolan trailer

posted Aug 17, 2016, 8:33 PM by Tyler Bustinza

Everyone's favorite adopted son has been shown bringing back a fan favorite with plenty of old JFs and new ones.


I'll probably do a preview release for Lee like I did for Master Raven.

7/31/2016 - Master Raven pre-release thoughts

posted Jul 31, 2016, 8:35 PM by Tyler Bustinza

Just when you might have thought I'd never make another video, here's a new video.


These are my first thoughts on her changes and buffs, right in time to beat out her official release. Let's see how close I was.

7/18/2016 - Raven announced for T7!

posted Jul 18, 2016, 12:28 PM by Tyler Bustinza

In a somewhat surprise reveal both Bob and Master Raven were shown off before the SFV finals at Evo 2016.


Raven that we all known has been replaced by his superior, "Master" Raven but overall she seems to share the same animations and movelist.

I currently have a thread going on TZ discussing the changes that have been shown as well as a little theorycrafting regarding potential changes and other buffs. Please feel free to add to the discussion:


Otherwise, I'll be talking more about her once I get back from Las Vegas.

7/12/2016 - New Reddit QnA, Evo edition!

posted Jul 12, 2016, 11:55 PM by Tyler Bustinza

Get your last minute Evo questions in during this week's TTT2/T7 QnA


Also an update to last week's article, it sounds like the original (pre-T7) characters supposedly lost their unscaled hits against grounded opponents which is a great step in the right direction but also note that I read this after watching Lucky Chloe for a good 20 minutes straight seeing her inescapable grounded, unscaled hits still hitting. So I still need to investigate it further.
