Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 co-op screens are simply the breast

What I love about the Tecmo Koei merger is that it hasn't dulled the former's commitment to rampant sexism. Bouncing boobs are still in full effect, even if the owner of said boobs happens to be a fourteen-year-old girl. That's misogynistic...

Why doesn't Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 have as much blood n' guts?

To the anguish of splatter fans, it has been noted in the past that Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2's gore has been considerably toned down when compared to the original Xbox 360 release of Ninja Gaiden 2. Quite why the title, which is still M-rated, ...


NG Sigma 2: 14-year-old has huge boobs, new face

E3 09: Hands-on with Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma

E3 09: Tecmo's 2009 lineup has ninjas, musical platforming

Tecmo just announced their 2009/2010 lineup, and while some of it is either unsurprising or disappointing (Ninja Gaiden Sigma for the PS3 and Family Fun Football for the Wii, respectively), a couple of games caught my eye more than the othe...


More Ninja Gaiden on the way? You bet

Tomonobu Itagaki's departure from Team Ninja (and also his legal action towards Tecmo) certainly dampened the hopes of any fans hoping for more Ninja Gaiden games -- especially when Itagaki clearly said he would never create another one. Of...
