Tekken 6's Bob hates skinny people


A few weeks ago, we learned all about Bob's interesting training habits that involved consuming heavy doses of donuts, but until today, we haven't seen the newest Tekken 6 fighter in action.

GamesRadar has published several images that prove, despite Bob's weight problem, he's actually quite a nimble fellow. Who would've thought a character that resembles the late Chris Farley could kick above his head?

Bob and the rest of the Tekken 6 cast are set to hit the PS3 next year.

2. I'm still waiting for Namco, Tecmo or Sega to step up and make a fighter that looks as good as Fight Night or Def Jam. Come on now, the backgrounds aren't THAT much more complex.

5. I just saw the videos with Bob, and, man, can that guy move! Apparently being obese doesn't slow this guy down one bit. Can't wait to see his moves.

6. Tim,

You know this is Tekken 6, right? There's a whole hype-creation industry that needs something to talk about. And everything has already been done in Tekken 1-5. There's nothing new. But hype about being exactly the same as before with 5% more polygons isn't going to sell a new Tekken 6. So they added something new: Bob. The hype machine has something to talk about now. Bob is new. Buy Tekken 6 to play Bob.

Do you understand now?

7. The funny thing is that Tekken always has mirror characters. Angel/Devil and so forth.

$20 says there's a Bob/Gabe mirror character.

8. I hate over the top characters on Tekken. Just give me classy and cool characters that animate well. You got all those freaks and when a small characters holds the ultra freaky big character, everything gets into eachother, arms inside the characthers belly etc etc, it just doesn't look right. Then again, I have never understood the humour of these characters. I find them stupid and unnecessary. But my friends seems to really laugh at these stuff. Maybe I am taking Tekken too seriously!
