TEKKEN!

The Game:
If any game had the potential to push me into buying a Playstation 3, it would be Tekken 6.  I am sooooo excited!  There's gonna be an insane amount of characters, over two new characters, an enormous amount of freedom alotted to customizations, and general awesomeness!  Overall he game  will be much more realistic and all of teh characters move sets will be updated.  Hawt!

The Movie
In other news, I am less excited for the Tekken live action movie slated for 2009.  Uuuuuh, *shudder*.  It sounds like the producers are really gonna ass rape this one.  Hopefully not, but they probably will.  The story is about how Jin enters the Tekken tournament to bury his Demons, but he is followed by his friend, a "rebel monk named Zhen" who is determined to help Jin...um...isn't that Ling Xiaoyu's job??  And who the fuck is Zhen???  He's not in the game...apparantly Zhen is Jin's new best friend...um, it's very weird.  Oh yeah, Zhen and Jin later discover that the Tekken Corporation which is responsible for hosting the tournaments has a dark secret.

In the Tekken games, the Tekken tournament is hosted by the leader of the Tekken Zaibatsu financial corporation, the leader usually being Heihachi Mishima.  Publicly, the company and it's fortune are used as bait to attract the world's best martial artists, but in reality, the tournament is a means of luring Heihachi's son (Kazuya) and grandson (Jin) out of hiding, so that he can acquire their "devil gene" which allows them to transform into powerful demons.  Heihachi wants to use this gene to become the "God of Fighting."  I once read in an interview that instead of using the "devil gene" as a basis for hosting the tournament, the producers were going to use the tournament as a testing grounds for the company's steroids...um...yeah....

Don't do drugs kid.

ZOMG. Tekken 6 is yet another reason why I also am probably going to go buy a PS3, too. Soooooo expensive.... -Weeps-

I didn't hear about the live action Tekken movie. I hope it's better than that foreign disaster that my friend had that was kinda like Tekken but not. And Jin best be hot. And it's depressing that they're already deviating from the story with a new character... but who knows. Depends also on who is directing it. It could be another one of those horrors of something that was ported to a movie that really shouldn't be.

And don't worry about the letter! I'll just write you another one! XD

Hahaha, thanks (about the letter).

Weeell, I'm not so sure about the directors. One guy didn't realy have any credentials. The source I found him on was scraping the bottom of teh barrel so hard that they listed the high school which he graduated from. Another guy worked on Drumline and a couple of other movies for teens. There were two other guys mentioned to be working on the project. By the end, I hope that Jin is at least Japanese, hahahaha. I hope they try to include as many characters as they can (in some meaningful way).

As long as they don't do what they did in Tekken 4 as they do in the movie... I felt really awkward when Jin sounded Russian and Hwoarang sounded like a hick. =X
