Tekken and stuff
Page four of our eight page Brothers in Arms comic book is up. This is actually my favorite page. The game actually drops this week if you’re interested.
Speaking of Ubisoft stuff, they just announced a new golf franchise today. The future of the Links franchise is sort of up in the air at the moment as best I can tell. That’s frustrating since Links 2004 was in my opinion the best golf game to date for any system. Assuming it continues on its current trajectory, I expect Tiger Woods will be a skateboarding vampire in the next iteration of that series. So I think a new golf franchise is just what the doctor ordered. I’m excited to see what Ubi does with a golf game for a couple reasons. First I think they tend to make good games for the most part. That’s why we work with them so often. Second there might be an opportunity for a golf comic book. I can’t imagine what that would be like right now but it sounds like a challenge.
There are two types of people in this world. There are people who like Tekken and there are people who like DOA. It’s been my experience that the two groups don’t get along very well together. I’m not sure what generates the sort of hatred I’ve witnessed between the two but it’s very real. Honestly I think we should all just get along. I mean, if we got rid of all the DOA fans then all our special Ed teachers and remedial reading tutors would be out of work. I joke, I joke… but not really.
Now I’ve been a Tekken fan since I saw the video of Tekken 1 that shipped with the Playstation. It wasn’t even a playable demo, just video of fights. I can remember just watching it over and over again in awe. I couldn’t believe that a videogame could look like that, much less on a system I could plug into my TV. I spent all weekend with Tekken 5 and honestly if you’re a fan of the series you just have to get it. Personally I think 5 is the best version yet, but let’s say you don’t like it. Maybe you preferred Tekken 2. Well shit man, just play it! They’ve included Tekken 1, 2 and 3 on the disk along with 5. It’s a hell of a deal for fifty bucks. Would it be better if it was on the Xbox and had Live play? Sure, but I say that about every game that comes out for the PS2.
