Someone suggested that I post this up on SRK because, “it’s something every fighting game fan should listen to, a very insightful look into the industry and where it is going.”

Hope you guys enjoy it.

Avoiding the Puddle Episode #14 featuring Harada, Murray andOdashima - News - Avoiding The Puddle


“20% is the percent of players that don’t trade the game in when they get tired of it”? I stopped trading namco fighters in when they gave the character actual speech to match the amazingly realistic movements. Earlier games (Tekken 1-3 and Soul Blade), where everybody was like a robot, and could only grunt?: gone after a couple months. Shit didn’t feel right once the newness wore off. Once the characters started actually talking, I was all bout it. That reverse uncanny valley shit bored me.


Harada interview? Sweet, will listen to it. Thank you sir.
