I knew someone would employ Itagaki. He's a great director/game designer. Kinda over zealous though. But I guess when you're responsible for the re-imagining of a great and classic action series like Ninja Gaiden, and a very polished fighter, you have the right to be. Game looks great. I will be getting it when it comes out.
lil_zelda_dude, the man is stating that this a controller-based game OK! go back to your room!....NOW!
"fast paced action couldnt be achieved with indirect control" Itagaki just punched Move in the face nice :_
So if the game is still a baby, maybe walking. Then they have been developing it for a year to 18 months, and he is releaseing it when it goes to pre-school, then this game is at least a year away.
The games industry needs more personalities like Itagaki and less of the "aww shucks" mock self-effacing, jargon-spouting wannabe hipster developers we have nowadays. You may not like Itagaki, but he demands respect for what he has achieved.
This game looks so sweet. Tecmo says they can get along without Itagaki, after seeing this I'm not so sure.
Hah, it's really not nice to discuss the way people look, but this japanese guy looks like from some seriously bad 80's movies or gay metal-pop band :)
@Black_Adder_, its called thinkin outside the box, tryin somethin new. U can't knock somethin til u try it cuz u never know what it may b like or what it could bring to the table of future shooter gaming. So watch ya mouth when u callin ppl unintelligent jus because u wanna have your opinion of what could or couldn't b fun. The genre of shooters have been needin somethin like this for a long time.
So what I understood from all this talk - there will be another "cool" game where button mashing, gun blasting senseless blood spilling will be the only thing about it. Also he mentioned he like MW2 (another "cool" game for bit retarded people or little kids) and RDR (the most boring multiplayer ever, but at least single player was awesome). In conclusion: Devil's third - a game made by un-intelligent people for un-intelligent people. If you have read at least one book in your life, you might be disappointed.
Pop out the karaoke, coz this foofi's bout to bust in an imaginary riff! Great stuff man, get the herpes cured while u're at it ;-)
@Virtual_Erkan, american RPG's have a long way too go, storywise, till they can best JRPG's in my opinion
Only the Japanese can make a shooter that gets my interest. As far as I'm concerned Valhalla is the new Team Ninja!
I used to hate Western games but now they have improved a lot than before. Even the American RPGs surpass the JRPGs.
Good thing he doesn't seem too excited about motion control. I hope this game has a 2011 release, I don't want to wait too much to play it.
