Tekken 7 (PC): Best Videogame Soles Ever?


New Tekken beauty Josie Rizal shows she's got SOLE.

TEKKEN 7 HAS ARRIVED!

DAAAAAAMN it was a freakin' long wait. Indeed, we've been waiting since 2012 for a good, proper Tekken game. Yes, even if Tekken Tag Tournament 2 was overall a disappointment with its downgraded Character Customization and the shortage of barefoot customizations, it DID give us the sexy, barefoot Angel and Unknown, plus let us have a shoeless (and definitely female) Leo Kliesen. After that came the rather barren Tekken Revolution, and we chafed for a real Tekken game to arrive and treat us with proper sexy barefoot brawling.

Now it's here! Tekken 7 is now out for Xbox One, PS4 (and PS4 PRO) and PC. The game looks AMAZING, and is surely the most gorgeous-looking Tekken ever, and certainly a superior port. Huge, detailed character models moving at silky-smooth 60FPS with the most refined fighting action ever in the series are on offer here, and a host of lovely ladies to de-boot with Character Customization. We can, right?

Well, as we've been mentioning for all these past weeks, the Character Customization in Tekken 7 is a mixed bag. Yes, it's very similar to Tekken Tag 2's dumbed-down customs, with the bottoms lumped together with footwear and with most items being common to everyone save a few unique items. But thankfully for us footfans, there are barefoot options for pretty much everyone. The bad news is that half of the Tekken Girls will apparently need to wait a bit for the barefoot Tropical Bikini costumes to be added later as DLC.


Be sure to watch the vids in 60FPS HD to see these sexy babes best...

As of right now though, we have three beautiful brawlers' soles to enjoy- our favorite leg model Lili Rochefort, adorable android Alisa Bosconovitch, sassy Brazilian Katarina Alves, Filipina cutie Josie Rizal and the peppy Lucky Chloe. Katarina is the only one with a full-body swimsuit costume as of yet, which is probably the sexiest outfit in the game. But of course, my fave is still Lili with her rather flashy Bikini Skirt (legs for DAYS!).

And I can readily say, Tekken 7 has easily the best-looking, sexiest feet and soles EVER in the series. The ladies' toes and soles look amazing, lifelike and detailed, and look great even up close (and the camera gets quite close in many of the moves and attacks, thanks to a very energetic camera).  Lots of nice, pause-worthy moments... which makes the 60FPS animation such a godsend. Heh...

So far the fighting action is great, and the videos are already online at the Youtube Channel. Tekken 7 is sure to be a mainstay with us from here on, along with our other favorite fighters. And we're hoping it only gets better from here. Hopefully we get Asuka and the other babes out of their boots and showing sole soon enough.


We see countless barefoot brawls and sexy KOs to come!

For now though, enjoy the vids. Have you got your Tekken 7 yet? Get yours now!

Confirmed Barefoot Customizations in Tekken 7 (Home Version)




Tekken 7 is OUT! Well, actually, it isn't officially... but some places, like Peru, have broken street date and not a lot of gamers are streaming Namco-Bandai's latest and greatest KOIFT game online and spoiling things for impatient Tekken fans the world over.

Well, we have to wait a few days more for the release of the PC version, but I think it'll be worth it. I did take a look at some non-spoilery vids, such as the one above. It shows off the currently-available customizations for most (Eliza not included) of the fighters in the game. I say 'currently' because it is quite obvious that many items which exist in the arcade version (and should by all rights be in the home game as well) as as yet missing. These include the swimsuits (including the all-important Tropical Bikini) for both females and males. I assume these items will be added post-launch by a patch, or offered as DLC content; the Season Pass after all mentions 'more additional costumes'.

That aside though, all is not lost. There ARE barefoot customizations for our lovely Tekken babes available in the game out of the box, although not for all of them. So who got left out of the bus and who will be barefootin' it on Tekken 7's launch week?

The Bad News first- Asuka Kazama, Nina Williams, Master Raven, Kazumi Mishima and Ling Xiaoyu (and Leo Kliesen if you still consider the character female) all have NO unique barefoot customization options as of yet. I'm really not sure why that is so- does the Tekken Team draw lotteries to see who can go barefoot or not in every Tekken game? Is there some sort of unwritten law? It can't be by age with Asuka and Ling being grouped with the other ladies... I really can't figure it out.

Anyway, the Good News: Lili Rochefort, Alisa Bosconovitch, Lucky Chloe, Josie Rizal and Katarina Alves each have one barefoot customization option.

Alisa has a barefooted skirt called the 'Peach Beach Skirt'.

Josie Rizal and Lucky Chloe both have P1 Bare Feet customization, allowing them to go shoeless in their default bottoms.

Sassy Katarina has a full-body customization called 'No Summer Dress', which refers to her Summer Dress oufit. Equipping No Summer Dress leaves Kat in just a fancy two-piece swimsuit and her sexy, lethal bare feet.

Finally, Lili has her uber-sexy 'High Class Bikini Skirt', a lower body customization which pretty much goes perfectly with any top. This pretty much shoots up her hotness waaay over Asuka (who is just a frumpy hag compared to her hahaha). Can you say upskirts every time she moves? LOL

So out of the box, about half of the female cast can go barefoot- half can't. That should be remedied by the addition of the Tropical Bikini costume, which we may have to wait for a bit. But thankfully, even this early I can easily say that at least Tekken 7 is miles away a much better game for footfans than Tekken Tag 2 was, and thanks to the sexier outfits, a notch above our longtime favorite, Tekken 6.

Man, I can't wait for June 2! Have you preordered your Tekken 7 yet?

Tekken 7: Barefoot Customizations So Far...

z_MNfetj_d

Tekken 7 has at least one barefoot customization for each girl...

Tekken 7's home version is less than three weeks away, and the wait is excruciating! However, footfans can take heart that this game at the very least should deliver with what we always look for in a good fighter- Barefoot Customization for our favorite babes. Now, unlike the previous Tekken Tag Tournament 2, Tekken 7 promises to deliver this, with at least one costume- the full body Tropical Bikini, which is common to all the female characters, allowing for a sexy, barefoot look. However, that's not all, folks... at least several of the girls come with an additional and unique barefoot option for a different shoeless outfit.

As we've already seen previously in MANY arcade videos, Lili received months ago as part of the Kiwami Campaign in Japanese arcades a barefooted lower body item called the 'Bikini Skirt'. This scandalously short bit of cloth is easily the sexiest lower body customization, and quite fitting for the leggy princess. Some time later, Alisa Bosconovitch also got a similar item, also a barefooted skirted bottom (AFAIK it is either called 'Fairy Skirt' or also a Bikini Skirt).

We've also seen that Katarina Alves, the sassy newcomer, has a pretty sexy Summer Dress outfit which looks like a cocktail dress complete with high heels and hat, but we've seen that it can be dressed down to just the lingerie or a two-piece swimsuit/bikini which is nicely shoeless.

Most recently though, it has come to light that two more of the new female fighters- namely Lucky Chloe and Josie Rizal, have in their wardrobes a 'P1 Barefoot' option, which is literally a shoeless version of their default outfits' bottoms. The pic above shows off the customs quite nicely, with color-edited variants.

As for the rest, sadly we are not entirely sure. Unfortunately, it seems that Nina Williams so far has no 'Pi Barefoot' option. Not sure if the other ladies (Asuka, Master Raven, Kazumi) have them or not. But as mentioned earlier, all the girls can be barefoot in the Tropical Bikini outfit (which may need to be unlocked in the home version of the game).

As a final note- Leo Kliesen, whom I am yet again not entirely sure is female or retconned male, has a male-style old-fashioned swimsuit where he/she is barefoot, but it really isn't very pleasing... unless you really, really like Leo and her(?) very boyish figure. Huh.

Anyway, it's not all perfect, but I can very well say I am looking forward to Tekken 7. Hopefully it will give as much barefoot babe action and titillation as Streetfighter V and DOA5LR have given us in the past several months. As this being the one Tekken game we'll be having from here on into the near and foreseeable future- I do hope so.

Tiona and Tione Hiryute (DanMachi Gaiden: Sword Oratorio)



Anime is almost certainly synonymous with fan service- though admittedly in my experience good fan service for foot fans like me aren't always easy to find. Anime tends to gravitate their attention to boobs or butts, or panty shots. While I enjoy panchira as much as the next hentai, it is beyond frustrating to watch awesomely sexy anime like Agent AIKA which has so much silky fan service but seldom any bared soles or toes in sight. And so it is when I find anime that has barefoot babes in it, I celebrate quite a bit.

Here's a recent and probable gem- a new anime series, DanMachi Gaiden: Sword Oratorio has just debuted. Based on a series of light novels, this is a light-hearted fantasy adventure series in the RPG overtones, complete with over the top spells, character classes and levels for each of the characters and monsters that explode into nothingness upon death. Our focus here is on the lovely pair of exotic and irresistible Amazons, Tiona and Tione Hiryute. Though they aren't the main characters, they are onscreen for a good part of the time which is not a surprise because they're HOT. Scantily-dressed and barefoot, these two veteran adventurers are also as kick-ass as they are sexy.

Of course, it's Tiona who's my favorite- she is the more tomboyish of the pair, with shorter, slightly messy hair and a very slim chest (yes, they focus her assets on her sexy legs and quite formidable, bare feet), her sexy feet are often the points of interest as she leaps about or give the occasional killer kick.
Her sister, Tione, the long-haired and big-boobed beauty, often teases Tiona for her modest breasts, but I can say quite readily flat chests and sexy feet are a killer combination, and I'm sure foot fans aplenty will be scrambling in line to worship Tiona's perfect peds.

Episode 1 of Sword Oratorio has quite a few scenes with Tiona in footie action, which leads me to believe that the anime/manga makers have us foot fans in mind with her and Tione. I'm certainly going to collect this series as it goes on- which hopefully will be for a good duration. Check out the video above and see the sexy fan service action for yourself!

Sister Friede (Dark Souls III)


One of the toughest bosses in Dark Souls III is one hot barefoot babe!

In the world of From Software's awesome RPG, Dark Souls III, there are several beautiful barefoot muses to break the monotony of shriveled undead, misshapen monsters and flaming demons. You've got the lovely, nameless Firekeeper (who is at least half-barefoot thanks to her Real Bout-ish footguards) and the ethereal Yorshka. But I say the best barefoot waifu in Dark Souls III is none other than the lovely final boss of the Ashes of Ariandel DLC expansion, Sister Friede.

Appearing first as a friendly (or at least non-combative) NPC you meet in the new painted world, Friede seems to be nothing more than a harmless priestess or nun-like figure inside a decrepit church. But careful piecing together of various clues and events all around this decaying, ruinous realm reveals far more. Friede was once Elfriede, one of the three Sisters who founded the Sable Church of Londor- a powerful personage indeed. But for some reason, she forsook her former rank and land, coming into the world of Ariandel and soon making her place in it. When the Ashen One comes, he/she is a threat to the status quo that Friede is ready to defend... to the death and beyond if need be.

You can tell, the devs have footfans at heart with this lovely femme fatale. When she appears in the cutscene for the final boss fight, the first we see of her are her beautiful, bare feet- the slappy, padding sound of her soles approaching with soft menace. Afterwards is a three-part battle to the finish against a deadly opponent who is as graceful as she is lethal.

I have to admit, after Sister Friede fell for the third and last time, a bit of me died with her. I didn't want to end her- instead I wished I could have persuaded her to relent and let Ariandel be reborn in flames. Instead I would have worshipped her myself, pledging myself to her service as Vilheim her knight did... and I'd give her foot massages all day and all night, as only an undead Unkindled could.
But alas, fell she did and vanished from sight... at least until I find her again in New Game Plus (or, I could just watch the video feature above heheh)...

Cheetah Gameplay and Breakdown (Injustice 2)


The REAL Cat Woman is my favorite in this superhero brawler.

The Injustice series has never been a franchise I've been too interested in- videogame developer Netherrealm doesn't have a good track record with barefoot babes. They seem to be more interested in blood and gore with the Mortal Kombat franchise than anything else. So it was with quite a bit of pleasant surprise that I am finding myself looking forward to Injustice 2.

One of the main reason is finally, the inclusion of a sexy barefoot femme fatale in the roster for us foot fans to get behind... Cheetah! This feral but also strangely classy (nice English accent) villainess is pretty hot- amazing body, quite sexy 'jungle girl' outfits and a beautiful, acrobatic fighting style. As we can see in the breakdown video above, she is quite formidable with her fast attacks and distance-closing moves. In terms of familiar appeal, I think she seems to be a nice throwback to 'Flesh Pit' Mileena, Netherrealm's only other previous barefoot female character in their past games... thankfully, even with her somewhat bestial look, Cheetah is far, far prettier than the bandaged Tarkatan villainess.

Of course, while I certainly can see myself cuddling up to Cheetah's sexy feet (just keep those clawed toes nice and calm) and keep her peacefully purring, we had better be careful to keep ourselves getting scratched. A nice continuous foot massage may calm this savage beauty. Heh.

It still remains to be seen if there will be more barefoot babes in Injustice 2... I am hopeful at least that Poison Ivy will get a barefoot alternate costume, but even if we don't- well, Cheetah is ready to pounce into our footfan hearts. Injustice 2 is coming in late May.

Rapunzel's Back in Tangled: Before Ever After!



It won't take a genius to figure out that one of my all-time favorite Disney animated films is 2010's Tangled. I fell in love with it at first sight with the teaser vids showing the adorable Rapunzel (voiced and performed by Mandy Moore). But after watching the movie itself, it became my forever fave. Aside from the wonderful story, the absolutely stunning animation (and yes, Rapunzel's cute bare feet are perhaps the best-animated peds I've seen in a CG flick) there was Rapunzel herself- such a lovable and engaging heroine, and the music, while understated, was sublime.

Well, good news for me and other Tangled fans then- about seven years after we saw Rapunzel and Eugene live to happily ever after, we get MORE. Premiering last March 10 was an original Disney animated movie entitled Tangled: Before Ever After. The film is set after the events in Tangled, but before the wedding shown in the CG animated short, Tangled Ever After (hence the Before...). I have to admit I was totally disappointed by Ever After- Rapunzel was barely in it (the stars were her sidekicks Pascal and Maximilian), and we were also in suspense to know if she, like many other barefoot princesses in past Disney flicks- became domesticated and started wearing shoes.

Well, wonder no more! Tangled Before Ever After reveals that going barefoot seems to be part and parcel of Rapunzel's personage, even without her magical, golden tresses. But then, as events unfold, her short, brown locks are soon transformed once again into the magical blonde cascade that we all now and love. From there on, it's a nice adventure that only opens up even more stories to come as the movie serves as the prelude for Tangled: The Series, of which Disney has already approved at least two seasons of!


The Return of the Hair!

 Some things remain the same- pretty much most of the voice actors from the original film return. However, it's quite obvious that there has been at least one major change- the animation style. Tangled Before Ever After and the upcoming series are both in traditional 2D animation. However, the character and feel of the original are retained since the lead animation designer is Claire Keane, the same artist who worked on and did Rapunzel's in-movie art and paintings.

 Suffice to say, even in 2D, everyone pretty much retains what we love about them in the original- perhaps Rapunzel's feet are obviously not as detailed as before, but it's nice to see that they kept them, instead of copping out and having her wear suddenly wear shoes (like they did with Pocahontas, Esmeralda and Kida)- Rapunzel's bare feet after all represent her innocence and sense of adventure. Perhaps when she's older, settled down and married, maybe then she'll put on shoes and live quietly. But that's NOT anytime soon. HEHEH.



Tangled: The Series begins airing on Disney Channel late March.
