A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, the Girlfriend bought me my first TV console for the modern era, the Xbox.
The pride of this console is an offering from a relatively unknown team called Team Ninja and their gem of a game Ninja Gaiden. A re-imagining of the classic NES title, the gameplay was simply leap (pun fully intended) years beyond its time.
Ryu Hayabusa, the protagonist of the series jumped about like the Energizer Bunny on crack, and the pornographic amount of blood and gore flying on screen as Hayabusa slashes through the numerous grunts puts Kurosaki and Tarantino to shame.
In one word, it was – AWESOME!
Fast forward a decade (yes, it is that long).
Team Ninja put forth the newest Ninja Gaiden title in the series for the “next” generation of consoles – namely the Xbox 360 and the PS3.
Having been converted to the Ninten-cult, courtesy of the Fiance (again), I will not be able to play this game.
Nonetheless, I still check out the promos and previews for the games from the other consoles. After all, you never know what (consoles) tomorrow might bring. (*nudge nudge hint hint*)
The first teaser was… amusing and I couldn’t help but break into a chuckle.
You see, some of the playable characters in Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 are female “ninjas”. Beside having almost the same agility as Ryu Hayabusa, one of the USP of the game is that the game features, I kid you not, “physically realistic breasts movement”.
Then along came the second teaser trailer and I cannot help but wonder if something went wrong somewhere in the promo department for Team Ninja.
