The Conference Board Coincident Economic Index(R) (CEI) for the Euro Area increased 0.1 percent in June to 102.3 (2010=100). The composite economic indexes are the key elements in an analytic system designed to signal peaks and troughs in the business cycle. The leading and coincident economic indexes are essentially composite averages of several individual leading or coincident indicators. They are constructed to summarize and reveal common turning point patterns in economic data in a clearer and more convincing manner than any individual component — primarily because they smooth out some of the volatility of individual components. The updated data tables can be found here. The 2016 data release schedule is available here. For more information about The Conference Board global business cycle indicators, click here.

‘Tekken 7’ Latest News, Release Date & Update: Proper Single Player Story Mode Coming

By on Jul 31, 2016 in Press Release | 0 comments

Attendees wait in line to play Namco Bandai Games Inc.’s ‘Tekken Tag Tournament 2’ with Nintendo Co.’s Wii U video game console during the Tokyo Game Show 2012 at Makuhari Messe on September 20, 2012 in Chiba, Japan. The annual video game expo, which is held from September 20 to 23, attracts thousands of business visitors and the general public with exhibitions of the upcoming game software and latest hardware. (Photo: Getty Images/Kiyoshi Ota) “Tekken” has grown in popularity mostly because of its fighting games. That easily associates it with the need for players to either battle the computer-controlled characters or have someone to take up the other controller. But where does this leave the story mode feature that usually comes with the game? “Tekken 7” stands to offer more than the jousts by offering a story mode to enhance single player experience. Bandai Namco Games America Brand Manager Mark Religioso tackled the matter, saying that gamers these days look more to just traditional one-on-one combat. It goes beyond the usual core fighting experience and “Tekken 7” plans to offer just that when it comes out in the open, Dual Shockers reported. Enhancing and knowing more about the characters For most games, the story mode is something that best tells more on the story of the characters. “Tekken 7” will try to do just that, a gateway for gamers to understand the history of a particular fighter and the story behind his rise. Bandai Namco’s move makes a lot of sense which could come in helpful. No longer will they have to explore on their own how effective a fighter is since they can figure out his best feature. Also, the story mode will offer the proper dialogue to know the story of each “Tekken 7” character. The initial roster may already be out but Religioso hints that more characters will beef up that up soon. With that in mind, players who prefer to play “Tekken 7” can look forward to something new, a learning curve that can help them get a better feel of the game. Depending on the type of gamer you are this could matter or not. Just the same, Bandai Namco is taking the initiative. “Tekken 7”...
