What a creepy Valentine's Day card

Posted by: Nathan at 2/13/2010 6:26 PM
Tecmo sent out a very sexy Valentine's Day card with a picture of the scantly clad Kasumi taken from the upcoming Dead or Alive Paradise. Now promotions like this aren't as odd as, say, dancing presidents, but the contents of the email Tecmo sent out were a little odd. Along with the standard info and legal mumbo jumbo they included a link to a recent Kotaku article. It seems the ESRB and Tecmo had a little falling out when it came to the ESRB's choice of words when describing Dead or Alive Paradise.

Maybe they should kiss and make up.
