Gaming News - Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Sets World Record
Some things make you proud to be Australian and some things make you proud to be a geek, but today I have the distinct pleasure of being an Australian geek.
Being an anime/Japan/gaming geek, to say that I'm looking forward to Tekken Tag Tournamnet Two would be an understatement and for the Australian arm of Namco Bandai Partners to break a WORLD RECORD on the day of its release makes me a very proud Geek of Oz!
Check out the press release after the jump for what went down!
