Meh... it won't be a proper Tecmo game though...

But still... it could be good.

So SquareEnix wants 30% of shares. I think that can keep Tecmo alive. They themselves were once a dying company and their final fantasy kept them alive.
You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

They're definitely more bloggy than I like, their reviews/previews aren't fantastic, and they jump the gun when it comes to their rumor section a lot.... like.... a lot, a lot, but other than that, what's to hate?

They always post pics of fan made computer game cakes.  I love it.

I hate kotaku and joystiq,they basically make news out of nothing,and add porno games and photos of gamecakes,thats just wrong and shows how immature our industry is and why nobody takes us serious.

With that said back to topic,I hope they do if Itagaki can get back,or else I dont know...
Even if you break 2 legs from a crab it still runs!
What you gotta do is find its weak spot and do massive damage at it.

Technically that was Squaresoft, Spirits Within caused so much damage ultimately they had to merge with Enix.  I think they lost something like 94 million on that turd of a movie.  What were they thinking?  They're a gaming company and they invest 134 million to produce a movie.  Sadly if they made the same film today, it would have cost them half that because graphic technology pisses all over what they had then.  They had to build a super computer to render the film.  960 Pentium IIIs.

If the movie had been more FF instead of just a post apoc movie, then more FF fans would have supported it i guess.

Yup technically speaking.

Tecmo makes non-Team Ninja games?
I dont want to celebrate, I want to sell you hate.
