Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 Director: "Every Man Loves Tits"

"coming this fall", Eh?

I bet you are, sonny.

He's probably right, but that doesn't mean I want them in my digital entertainment. One more game that won't be appearing on my radar. I endorse his honesty though.

Team Ninja's demographic consists of shallow males, anyone who loves controversy, and puberty itself.

That logic is pretty hard to counter. I like both tits and ass (basically full figured women), but of reasonable, human proportions, not melons on a lamp post like what these guys do.

I don't care for any part of a woman anymore. No I'm not gay, I'm straight, I've just given up on ever finding a girl that likes me.

So Team Ninja, sorry but I don't care what the women look like so long as the gore is well done. You can have massive boobs or none at all and it won't make a difference to me.

When did Drew Curtis from Fark become Director of Marketing for Team Ninja?

It sounds like all Team Ninja really wants to do is make more variations on DOA: Xtreme Beach Games/Volleyball they should team up with the company that makes the Artifical Girlfriend games.

And so this game is PS3 only? : /
OT: Boobs > Gore

You admit you're including in your game blatant excuses to show tits. Thumbs up. You're honest that you're appealing to those rather pre-pubescent urges. Hey, that's fine, whatever floats your boat, and I gotta confess that it floats mine too. Ninjas diceing up dudes isn't exactly an idea that has an obligation to push the creative envelope in terms of artistic expression. Thing is, your, err, appreciation of certain aspects of the female form seems to be going from refreshingly straightforward to a bit creepy. Tone it down a bit, and I will be much more likely to play your game. A lot of what your doing breaks the boundary between guilty pleasure and...weird. Besides, from what ive noticed, the most attractive DOA girls are, almost as a rule, the one you portray with the smaller tits.

He's right, Men like tits. No problem with tits in games, in fact it's kinda nice, and better yet he's straightforward with it.

Gotta respect that honesty, and it's not like he's saying that all Tecmo focuses is on blatant fanservice. They produce good games, but they also like adding in bouncing breasts for that extra appeal.

"We like breasts. Breasts are awesome. We will put lots of breasts into our games, and they will bounce, and we shall look upon them and say that they are good."

You know, if more companies would develop a philosophy like that, the world would be a much bouncier and more enjoyable place.

For you they would. Does this mean I get men wearing tight pants in video games?

You have to admire Team Ninja's honesty though.

I'm Ok with men's admiration of tits, but I find this ridiculously Freudian.

Eoin Livingston:
Well at least they aren't bullshitting us as to their reasons

Agreed. Of course considering their past offerings I don't think giving another reason for the tits in their games was really an option.

I do know some gay men who like breasts and nothing else about women. I also know that lots of women straight, gay, or bi who like them too. I think "Lots of people love breasts" would have been more accurate; but looking at the size, shape and physics of those tits, Team Ninja isn't interested in accuracy. Oh well, they can make whatever they want and I still won't play it; just laugh at it.

Well, Lego Rock Band has David Bowie in it. It's a start at least.

It's a wonder the guy isn't working for Illusion. I bet he could really raise the standard of the next Sexy Beach game.

Make Love Not War... Or both... With Tits... So, are the men going to remain eunuch?

The whole deal with the tits was such blatant manipulation that I was about to dismiss the game just for that. Plus what's up with getting rid of the blood? But I downloaded the demo this morning and was really impressed. It definately went on my ¨might buy¨ list.

The only hesitation I had is that i couldn't tell the difference between Ryu and his attackers. So sometimes when I thought I was whooping on them, it was actually one of them whooping on me. Consequently, I had a much easier time with the female level. So I'll probably wait until there is an option to put a circle around Ryu or change his color or appearance. I didn't even notice the missing gore.

I'm not into Japan games so for me to even be thinking about this one is a big score on their part. Too bad this distraction around female anatomy casts doubt on what looks like a fun and well-made game.

tits are nice, but if tit movement are their "advertising" for the game, its really too much. thats why im worried about Metroid: Other M. im afraid Team Ninja will create a boobyfest out of it.

I'd rather have Normal Boobs (but lots of 'em) + BLOOD BLOOD BLOOD than DD+++ on everyone and no blood.

Seriously, not EVERY man, even a straight one (I'm straight like an arrow, btw) is obsessed with boobs. At least, not when he's older than 15.

Not really, Xbox 360 had dismembering and PS3 has boobs.

"Every man", being, every heterosexual/bi-sexual man, right? I don't know many gay folk who oogle at boobs.

Some people also just aren't into tits.
I know a guy who is much more focused on the, uh, rear.

I myself tend to find hands much more interesting, but whatever, I think we all know I'm a freak by now.
Still, you can't just assume everyone has your same taste in...well, anything.
Some people juggle geese.

Well breasts are one of the most well liked body parts in the entire world. I recall seeing a survey on the topic across a multi national group of folks that put breasts right smack on top for both genders.

No surprise that some of the male oriented pieces were near the lowest.

The scrotum isn't exactly...gorgeous...

And this is why I respect them as a developer, they don't try to bullshit anyone. Its basically 'our games are full of chicks in tiny outfits with massive heaving chests, enjoy!'

Unlike say Eidos and Tomb Raider; 'no shes a serious character REALLY! her games are SO serious!' lol

It is kind of pure. Maybe honesty really is the best policy.

i really thought this was gonna be a joke like a few days later the wii was gonna have a commercial saying they where going to release a motion sensor sex game. But team ninja is for real about this and its got me exicted. 90 % cause there boobs and 10% cause im wondering if it'll be useful in the game or just a really enjoyable easter egg

I'll take Ryu and his hot ass any day over the gals. Yet, I remain a man.

Well, it's clearly a guys-only party.
Reminds me of when I was playing DMC 4. There was a cutscene where a barely-clad women with big boobs was fighting, and the camera was practically glues to her ass and boobs. It kind of felt like being a little girl on a playground where I was pushed out a circle of boys with the words 'you can't play along now, you're a girl'.

On top of that, putting such an emphasis on huge boobs makes the game feel cheap, and have a lack of depth (expect when you push those boobs together and peer in between them :p )

They are just boobs. I really cannot understand the obsession with boobies in gaming. There are so many nice women with nice soft warm boobs in real life, why do you need to look at huge ones` in gaming? At least he is honest, but in the spirit of honesty, if us women are going to be objectivised in order to sell games, could the developers please give us something nice to look at.

Can't a man enjoy the headlights And the trunk of a Car Woman?!

You ogle women with trunks? I hate to say it, but that may have been a somewhat different species of mammal

Gee, and everyone wonders why they are so few girl gamers out there...

You make me rofl.

It doesn't mean everyone's the same, that's why there's this quote "To each his own." I only liked Ninja Gaiden on Xbox, because of its brutal difficulty. I've bought Ninja Gaiden 2 if I had either current generation console.

CyberAkuma:

No it's only the western civilization that is not so open-minded. When you go to the arcade, you see a lot of girls as well as guys.

I could care less if heroines in games had chests flatter than boards. Still, TN knows their audience.

I'm sure somebody has already said it, but... Gay men?

I know Team Ninja doesn't think they exist, but still...

Silly man. I bet he's single.

Also, boobs are meh. Ass is awesome.

On girls. It's still good on guys, but... yeah.

Woodsey:

Yeah - these guys show that we can handle it SO maturely.

It's not even funny, and I'm 15 and my brain power is split 80:20 in favour of tits.

Actually this is VERY mature. When I was 15 I used to think like you. But as Dylan Moran once said, when you grow up, you learn to lie.

As people have stated already, they're being very honest. Breasts, sex and reproduction are the most important thing in a man's life. It's not wrong. It's not even wrong to exploit it i.e. pornography. Women exploit their own sexuality to profit from men all the time.

What IS immature is the film industry's methods. They hire hundreds of thousands of actresses like Jessica Alba, Scarlette Johansen, Liv Taylor, Angelina Jolie, etc, pretending they're hired for their 'talent' when really they're there to sex up a film to make it more profitable.

When you're older you'll understand.
