I love how both you guys are using ninjas as your profile pics, and making about the same pose, no less!

For a minute I thought they were different versions of Joe Musashi, but after second glance I'm thinking Ninja Gaiden's Ryu Hayabusa and VF's Kage-Maru.

Haha, yeah! And our avatars fit the discussion perfectly; I noticed that, earlier. I mean, maybe not the same pose, but they both involve arm-crossing, so I get'cha.
I love the Shinobi series, even the PS2 entry, so your Joe Musashi reference is certainly not lost on me.

My reason for having Kage as my avatar here in the Technodrome is basically the same as my reason for having Donatello as my avatar on the VFDC forums. Ninja. Relevance. An attempt to meet and chat with fans of both franchises, since they're my two big obsessions (well, those and Monster Hunter). I like to think I'm clever.

I just have Ryu on mine cuz he's my favorite video game ninja. Having grew up with playing the NES games, he's a big part of my VG experience.

Speaking of, who WOULDN'T want a Ryu vs. Kage fight in this crossover?

I loved the original Ninja Gaiden. I like the new ones okay, but nothing will ever top the original, aside from maybe Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master, but within the Ninja Gaiden series? Not yet.

Yes, it's obvious which camp we each would take in that duel, but it still would/will be a great fight to... ahem, win.

I've seen a lot more people talk about having Aoi (strong reversals), Sarah (obvious reasons) than any of the respective ninja. Regardless, I think that this battle shall be realised, soon enough.

I'd definitely pick Ryu over Kage. Why? Because with Ryu I could beat a whole army of military soldiers and demon hordes. But with Kage I couldn't even beat up that old man!

Now, Ryu Hayabusa Vs. Joe Musashi would be a much better fight!

Ah, yes, but it takes a wholly different sort of concentration to fight a single, skilled opponent, than take on hordes of enemies. Sure, Hayabusa has super ninja magic on his side, and while Kage has never fought demons to my knowledge, I'm not sure that Ryu wouldn't have quite a bit of trouble against Shun Di.

Kage-Maru is deadly, in the right hands.

In comparison to whatever VF nonsense you're talking about, the MK story could win a f*cking Pulitzer.

Nah, "Peanut" is no troll, he's just a long-time poster on these forums who pretty much embodies the spirit of the rules to the General Discussion/Video Games section.

Nah, I just mean that I'm leaving it at what I said, already. It felt as though he was baiting me into nerdrage, a common tactic, y'know.

So we've got, what... 5 confirmed returnees, 1 confirmed guest character... I wonder when they'll start showing some new characters.

Also: Who would you like to return the most? Personally, I'm hoping to see my main, La Mariposa, return.

As for returning characters, both of the characters I use have already been confirmed, so while it doesn't matter to me either way, I will say that Christie should come back, but that's mainly because my bro really took to her in DoA3.

Fair point, but if you could clarify what you mean (such as Virtua Fighter retaining an imagined purity by not engaging in crossovers, or whether you outright dislike the recent swarm of crossover titles flooding the market, et cetera), I'd be most appreciative of your response as a source of fuel for the discussion at hand.

Why you gotta be so gay, boy?

I'm pretty sure everything has its rabid fanbase somewhere.

Sure. Like how some people like to rape horses. Doesn't make it right!
