I must say that, Itagaki is my true god, Ninja Gaiden has got to be the closest to perfect game I have EVER played (and I have a very soft spot for the DOA franchise). I just think that Boon would be a waist of time... for the most part. I think he would rather talk about the "new" Mortal Kombat games, and how great a franchise he has, and not about how hard it was to "copy" his characters.
I have even less intrest in the franchise ever since I saw the G4 interview. Ed mentioned stuff like how he copied the characters off of other movies, and franchises, and how they just sit around all day saying chinese "sounding" words to come up with the names... thats pathetic!
However, as Melf being my other god, I wish you luck, in you getting your Ed Boon interview.
