Itagaki sez Tekken r teh suzzorz!!1! (again)
Tomonobu Itagaki is one of my favorite personalities in all the gaming world. He’s the Slash of gaming, if you will. Recently the fairly cool cats over at Joystiq (although we here at X360R firmly believe that their Xbox exclusive brother is much, much cooler to drink beer with) got the opportunity to sit down with the legendary game designer to probe his mind about Ninja Gaiden 2, Code Chronus, and which console is the favorite of the man in black.
First thing first: Ninja Gaiden 2. Try as they might, Joystiq couldn’t get crap from Itagaki regarding NG2. While they blame our weak, inferior beer products, I firmly believe this is because Itagaki will only give away information to you about as-yet-unannounced projects if you play Russian Roulette with him. Well, I have news for you, Itagaki-san: Deer Hunter is one of my favorite films. Let’s dance.
We did learn about the pet project over at Team Ninja, Code Chronus. Namely, we learned that it will feature DOA characters, and… no, that’s it. Damn.
Who am I kidding? I don’t care about Code Chronus, and we know that NG2 will rule once we finally see it. This is ALL about Itagaki’s continued hatred for all things Tekken. A while back, 1UP asked Itagaki to list his favorite, and least favorite games of all time. While his favorite games were a diverse collection of modern and classic, his least favorite games went like this:
The man hath spoken. And he says Tekken blows.

[…] Tomonobu Itagaki talks, the gaming world listens. Why? Who knows. Respect? Admiration? Fear? Whatever you want to call it, Itagaki never disappoints […]
