Double the pleasure!
May 13
Some people know how to multitask. I mean, really multitask. I am not one of them. I get flustered if I have to cook pasta during my washer's rinse cycle because who knows if the damn thing won't just explode and flood the e... read

Watch 12 minutes of Yoshimitsu battling it out in Tekken 7


Still my favorite
May 13
Yoshimitsu has undergone a lot of changes over the years. From a cyborg to a more traditional ronin outfit, to a bug...thing, and now, Cthulu's newphew. I dig them all, and across multiple franchises like Soul Calibur, he ha... read

Kidz Bop is better
