Tekken 6, Peter Moore, and Shia LeBeouf on Gaming

Tekken 6, Peter Moore, and Shia LeBeouf on Gaming

You know what’s really getting everyone’s nerves? The fact Tekken 6 still isn’t out yet. The game has been out in Japan for almost a year. How friggin’ long does it take to localize a fighting game like Tekken? Half the moves are in English anyways, and it isn’t like they localize the voice acting or anything like that, last time I checked everything was subtitled.

Street Fighter IV’s been out long enough that Tekken 6 would be refreshing, well refreshing enough for a Tekken game.  So why am I bitching about this? Because the game has been announced to not be released until October 27th, 2009.

Jesus Christ.  I thought we were over the “long localization delays.” It isn’t like they are translating an RPG. It’s a FIGHTING GAME for god’s sakes.

Idiots.  Although the new collector’s packs do look nice.

peter-moore-xboxI like how Peter Moore and Barak Obama are already gonna duke it out from what Obama said about pulling kids away from the video games.

Sorry Moore, Obama is right. It’s not that the kids are playing games enough-it’s that they aren’t working out enough. Sure getting them to play EA Sports Active or whatever would do the trick, but chances are they don’t have that, let alone Wii Fit. Obama was totally right when he said kids need to learn how to keep themselves in shape. Most of the gamers today are sitting on their butts with the only exercise being to put a potato chip into their pie-hole. They don’t play Wii fit for more than an hour a week unless they are really into it. These kids need to learn how to take care of themselves and learn to step into a gym for a half hour to an hour each day and train themselves. It’s why the obesity problem has gotten out of hand in this country.

Another thing to help would be to eat better food, but that’s another subject.

Moore needs to stay out of this and let the president do his job. He wasn’t attacking video games themselves. He was attacking kids who spend hours a day in front of a TV set. And any other misinterpretation is not a misinterpretation, it’s a lack of listening to context.

Oh and I’d like to add I’m not exactly Obama’s biggest fan.

shia-labeoufSo actor Shia LeBeouf thinks that the Wii is “An amateur console”.  He says due to his broken hand that he can’t play the new Transformers video game. He does go on about the 360 version and the PS3 version. But if it was Wii he’d stay the hell away. In case you missed it here is the best part of the whole interview.

“This is how in a simple way you can find out if it’s a gamer you want to play with. Ask them if they have a Wii. If they say yes, get the f*** out of there,”

You’re absolutely right. Who wants to play with people who played The Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, and every other first party Nintendo title made for the damn thing. Who wants to play with those dweebs? Who ever bought a Wii for some of those awesome games you can’t find anywhere else? Posers.

Let’s be fair, the Wii is for the casual gamer crowd but LeBeouf-you’re outta line. The Wii has several classic titles that aren’t available anywhere else. Do I, as the writer of this column think it’s a hardcore gaming system? Absolutely not. If you want to get to the nitty gritty, the Super Nintendo was a Amateur system too. If someone has a SNES, I’m getting the hell outta there. We don’t’ want you casual gamers around.

Someone shut this dumb-ass up. This is one of those idiots that plays nothing but Halo or Fable and calls themselves hardcore.

Stupid Dumb-F**k

I think we’ll leave it at that.

    Well I kinda agree with Shia. While Nintendo has made some great industry-inspiring games, they are largely single-player experiences. I think his comments come from the angle of playing WITH other people. I have ALL the consoles, including a Wii, so I think Shia would be more impressed with that rather than discouraged if I have a Wii.
