There’s nothing that happens in this video of the first six minutes of Tekken: Blood Vengeance that makes any sense to me — not the fighting, not the voice acting, and certainly not the “plot,” such as it is — but since the live-action Tekken movie is very possibly the worst videogame movie adaptation of all time, I’ll put aside my normal Tekken hatred and let you Tekken fans enjoy this in peace. I will say, however, that I’m stunned and mildly bitter that Soul Calibur has never had a similar CG movie; I could ignore a lot of bad voice-acting if I could watch Taki and Ivy bouncing around (no pun). Oh, FYI, FFF is up next. Sorry for the mild delay. (Via Twitch)
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
