Tenchu: Stealth Assassins is one of my faves (plus I got to analyse its AI for my games course at uni :) ). And FF VIII. And Soul Calibur. And a load of others.

Done! Let me know if you think anything else ought to be moved around ... I see a couple things in the Oshii film section that might be better in the new film section, like maybe the "Live-Action Aftermath" topic.

**SPOILER AHEAD!!! Well, sort of ...** The sad part is the film received poor reviews prior to people watching it because of the whole "white washing" controversy which is off course known to be bullshit for fans of the source material. I couldn't disagree with you more on that point ... a...

From what I've now heard/read, the actual film takes whitewashing to an entirely new level--but discussing why means major (ha ha) spoilers, as follow (using a quote box to hide the text, but it's really not a quote): Not only is Johansson playing "the Major" Mira Killian, but in the film ...

Um ... wow. This figure for the upcoming film seems exceedingly problematic given all the issues with whitewashing this production has had. I can't see it as anything other than racist, with the non-Japanese Kusanagi holding the decapitated head of the geisha (whose face is painted with the Japanese...

There was so much of that and other trailers that seemed so ... wrong. Why is she running up the wall visible in her odd-looking thermoptic camo (which looks like some sort of pink plastic bodysuit)? Why does Batou look so small? Why does the geisha have a big Japanese flag on her face (which seems ...
