I-Ninja

I-Ninja

Written by Charlie Sinhaseni on 7/9/2003 for GC  

When searching for the lead role for I-Ninja the director asked, "Who is I-Ninja? What is I-Ninja?" Apparently the answer to that question was a mix of Bobby from Bobby's World, Shinobi and Tony Hawk. For big-headed, wall-running, rail-shredding action, I-Ninja has no parallel.

Sure I-Ninja has substance but he's all about the flash and flair. He scoffs at villians and their tired punch, punch, kick routines. He laughs in the face of bosses with predictable actions. He chastises wannabes who have a hard time grinding across precarious ledges. I-Ninja's a real man's man. He doesn't simply just launch the firework into the sky and watch it explode. No, no, he rides that bad-boy for all it's worth, taking the time to throw up the quintessential peace sign before disembarking.

We'll have more information on this title in the very near future. In the meantime, check out the following images of our man I-Ninja strutting his stuff in front of the camera. And remember, I-Ninja ships this Holiday season for the PS2 and GameCube.

About Author

Gaming has been a part of my life for as long as I could remember. I can still recall many a lost nights spent playing Gyromite with that stupid robot contraption for the old NES. While I'm not as old as the rest of the crew around these parts, I still have a solid understanding of the heritage and the history of the video gaming industry.

It's funny, when I see other people reference games like Doom as "old-school" I almost begin to cringe. I bet that half of these supposed "old-school" gamers don't even remember classic games like Rise of the Triad and Commander Keen. How about Halloween Harry? Does anyone even remember the term "shareware" anymore? If you want to know "old-school" just talk to John. He'll tell you all about his favorite Atari game, Custer's Revenge.

It's okay though, ignorance is bliss and what the kids don't know won't hurt them. I'll just simply smile and nod the next time someone tells me that the best entry in the Final Fantasy franchise was Final Fantasy VII.

When I'm not playing games I'm usually busy sleeping through classes at a boring college in Southern Oregon. My current hobbies are: writing songs for punk rock bands that never quite make it, and teasing Bart about... well just teasing Bart in general. I swear the material writes itself when you're around this guy. He gives new meaning to the term "moving punching bag."

As for games, I enjoy all types except those long-winded turn-based strategy games. I send those games to my good pal Tyler, I hear he has a thing for those games that none of us actually have the time to play.

When I'm not busy plowing through a massive pile of video games I spend all of my time trying to keep my cute little girl fed. She eats a ton but damn she's so hot. Does anyone understand the Asian girl weight principal? Like they'll clean out your fridge yet still weigh less than 110 pounds.

Currently I'm playing: THUG, True Crime, Prince of Persia, Project Gotham 2 and Beyond Good & Evil. View Profile
