Tekken 6 Will Have More Than 40 Characters

It seems that an era is ending in the history of fighting-oriented videogames, that of unlockable characters. At least, that's what Katsuhiro Harada, one of the long time developers working on the genre, believes and that's what his company, Namco Bandai, is doing with its latest offering.

Harada, who is now working as the director behind Tekken 6, which is set to arrive on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 on October 27, talked to VideoGamer about the origins of unlockable characters and about their bleak future.

He said that “Why we locked the characters originally was that in the arcades, it was kind of to extend the life of the game by gradually unlocking characters. And also with the home versions as well, because you can rent games or whatever, it was to protect us against that.”

The practice is now less interesting to developers because online play needs a level playing field. Players would not be too happy to see that characters which are more powerful than others can only be used after a certain amount of time is invested in the game. For example, Street Fighter IV, a huge commercial success for Capcom, shipped with 25 playable characters but nine of them needed to be unlocked. It's very probable that only hardcore players have gotten them all.

By contrast, Tekken 6 from Namco Bandai is offering gamers a chance to play around with 40 characters, the largest selection for the series yet, and all of them will be usable from the start. All online games will be more balanced and, if the game is successful, we might very well see the number of unlockable characters diminish, if not disappear outright. Of course, more practical options, like unlockable characters that can be obtained by paying a small fee, are also a possibility.

Federer looking ahead to 'unbelieveable' WIMBLEDON final

LONDON - Roger Federer sprinkled his magic all over Center Court on Friday before Andy Roddick bludgeoned Andy Murray into the hallowed turf to leave Britain still seeking its first post-war men's singles finalist at Wimbledon.

Record-hunting Swiss Federer was at his dazzling best, beating resurgent German Tommy Haas 7-6 7-5 6-3 to reach his seventh men's singles final here, a feat not achieved since the abolition of the Challenge Round in 1922.

Federer's virtuoso performance watched by the lucky 15,000 with Center Court tickets was supposed to the curtain-raiser for the thousands massing in front of the huge screen on the grassy expanse known as Henman Hill for the Murray blockbuster later.

However, the Scot fluffed his lines and was outplayed in his first Wimbledon semi-final by American former world number one Roddick, losing 6-4 4-6 7-6 7-6 as Murray-mania fizzled out and disappointed fans headed to the bars to drown their sorrows.

Roddick, beaten by Federer in the 2004 and 2005 finals here, has not contested the championship match at a grand slam since the 2006 U.S. Open, but appears to have re-discovered the spark.

Roger Federer remains on course for a sixth Wimbledon and record 15th Grand Slam title after beating Tommy Haas in straight sets in the semi-finals.

The world number two won 7-6 (7-3) 7-5 6-3 and heads into Sunday's final against Andy Roddick having dropped just one set so far.

Federer served superbly and did not face a single break point as he won in two hours two minutes on Centre Court.

The 27-year-old will play in a seventh consecutive Wimbledon final on Sunday.

"I thought Tommy was on a great run, I couldn't even get close to breaking him for almost two sets," said Federer.

"Sure, that makes me maybe a bit worried, but it's something that happens quite frequently on grass.

"I was really happy the way I played today. I came up with some good stuff when I had to. Tough match, because Tommy was playing well."

He is looking to make up for last year's final defeat by Rafael Nadal, who is absent this year through injury, and overtake Pete Sampras's all-time mark of 14 Grand Slams.

Asked if the American might be on Centre Court on Sunday, Federer added: "He might come around, he might not. It's his choice but I would love to see him as he is a good friend of mine and I am very honoured to share the record with him."

Australia discovers 3 new large Dinosaurs

SYDNEY - Fossils of three new species of dinosaurs have been discovered in Australia, including a meat-eater larger than Velociraptor from the Jurassic Park movies, suggesting Australia may have a more complex prehistoric past.

The two plant-eating and one carnivore dinosaurs, the first large dinosaurs unearthed since 1981, were found in Queensland and date back 98 million years to the mid-Cretaceous period.

"It not only presents us with two new amazing long-necked giants of the ancient Australian continent, but also announces our first really big predator," paleontologist John Long, head of sciences at Museum Victoria said on Friday.

Paleontologist Ben Kear at La Trobe University in Melbourne said the discovery will pave the way for new studies on Australian dinosaurs and their environments.

"Australia is one of the great untapped resources in our current understanding of life from the Age of Dinosaurs," Kear said. "The discoveries...will definitely reinvigorate interest in the hitherto tantalizingly incomplete, but globally significant record from this continent..."

Australia's dinosaur fossil record has been extremely poor compared with North America, South America and Africa.

The new dinosaurs were unearthed during joint Australian Age of Dinosaurs Museum and Queensland Museum digs at Winton in outback Queensland.Two of the dinosaurs were found buried together in a 98-million-year-old "billabong" or waterhole.

"Billabongs are a built-in part of the Australian mind because we associate them with mystery, ghosts and monsters," said Hocknull, referring to Patterson's poem Waltzing Matilda, which tells of a "swagman" or bushman who jumps into a billabong and drowns after police try and catch him with a stolen sheep.

Hocknull said hundreds more fossils from the dig were still to be prepared and there was more material to be excavated.
