They didn't, mergers just happen nowadays with rising development costs. Namco and Bandai weren't in hot water when they decided to merge, neither did Activision or Blizzard and so forth.

Bear in mind that Tecmo was about a quarter the size of publishers like Capcom or Konami (Konami is bigger because they own a series of gyms), so thing can get a bit hectic cash flow wise nowadays. Also, DOA's boom into a wider audience didn't happen until the turn of the century, not in the 90's and almost exclusively on the Xbox.

I'm aware that DOA2 was released in 99 in the arcades, but the game didn't do very well compared to TTT or Capcom's games.

But that's DOA. Ninja Gaiden has never been about this kind of stuff. It's not a valid comparison by any means.


Only because this is the first time we're seeing 3 playable characters in the series, that's all. Otherwise, T&A has been in the modern NG from day one. Rachel and Ayane weren't exactly dressed like nuns in the cutscenes, and neither was that tranny Sonya.

Hell, even the cat fiends had tits for God's sake.

I don't think it's necessary, nor do I care for the bounce action but that's TN for you. No way around it, and frankly, I don't care since the games play better than any action game out there.

My thing is that the TNA action will draw people to the series. But once they start to play it and see you might die 100 times(indomitable spirit) they won't play it. Is that the crowd they are aiming for? Its not fair to those who truly play the series regardless of bouncing tits. They probably focused more on the titi bouncing than the reward for MNM. Come on now a gold health bar( still hoping its the one from NG2 Smile ) Team Ninja needs to think of its real fanbase.

Tecmo needs to think about its needs as a business. Regardless, the core combat remains there and unchanged. Focus on that and let them do what they feel will drive up sales a bit more. They get money, you continue to get games.

As long as it still ninja gaiden at heart I'm cool with that.
But come on. A GOLD health bar. It couldn't be a new costume?

You have a valid point but if you listen to your fanbase too much you risk alienating those who aren't on the bandwagon. For example, Namco (omg he said another company Embarassed) joined up with Tapout clothing so that you can customize your characters with it. Like Raven going into battle with a Tapout t-shirt or hat (anything to fix that damn Sisqo haircut Confused 1st real black guy as a ninja and they f@#k him like that Evil ).

Anyway I saying that b/c Namco is tryn to get MMA fans to buy Tekken and Tapout is getting Tekken fans to buy their clothes. Tecmo is bringin in more chicks so more women can play (unless they like starin at Ryu's butt in the leather) but still keeping the TNA so the guys don't think their making NG girly. So in a sense they are staying true to their fanbase its just hidden behind the tits. Laughing

And lastly Ninja Gaiden is hard as F%$K!!! Been that way since the NES day (the arcade game's continue screen still messes with). So the average smuck might buy it cus "she kicks high" like the DOA3 ad but all the real people want those "I beat Master Ninja and you didn't" bragging right.

Very Happy. Point taken. I'm just a little pissed that the only thing we get for completing master ninja mode is freaking gold health bar

If I get the Ryuken when completing Master Ninja, that'll be a worth while reward for me. Still an avatar would be cool like 360.

The gold bar is a better reward to me than a costume for a couple reasons. First, I don't like most costumes they throw in for Hayabusa. Ashtar is about it. Second, it's all about bragging rights. You know what the best reward I got in NG2 on the 360 was? My gamerpic for beating MN. I'm still using it to this day and it's been more than a year.

You beat it for the sense of accomplishment, not to play dress-up with our favorite Super Ninja.

Man, what is with you always saying what my thoughts are before I get say them. Smile

Though I did feel the Classic Ryu reward for NGB's Very Hard and the Tribal Spirit skin for NG2's MN were great symbols of accomplishment and status, nothing compared to that getting that gamerpic.

Best reward this gen in my opinion.

It's because I'm psychic. I actually don't have any connections at all. I find things out and get access to things because I READ THEIR fvck MINDS!
