Shocking news: Creative Director on Kinect is a douche

#1 Posted by ectoplasma (977 posts) -

Seriously Microsoft, what are you thinking? 
 
 

  
This guy replaces Mr. Hoody, I guess. Just gotta change those shades to Kanye West style shades and it's perfect.  
I really don't know how Microsoft can embarass itself that much. This scripted dialogue with the 2 womenish girls using video chat which was so undynamic and awkwark to listen to. And then Mr. Douche. Lol.

Shocking news: OP is a bellend.

Dude, I had to look that word up in the internetz to be insulted. You should see this guy walk in his skater-pants, he doesn't even feel comfortable himself.

Um, Kudo has been around the black a few times. And his 'tude, while kinda douchey, has been kept up throughout his career. So it isn't like he's manufactured board room representative. 
 
I guess what I'm saying its, no one is more authentic than Kudo Tsunoda.

It's easy to criticize.

@TheKidNixon: *thumbs* So, the life would be a better place if I'm wrong, but I can't quite believe this. Well maybe he just gets a little bit overly stuck in his pose because he feel a little bit tense speaking in that context? 
 
Btw. I don't say those girls did a bad job, I say Microsoft does a bad job for scripting someone the whole dialogue which just makes everything more stale (especially under pressure).

I just put this little video here...
 
 

#8 Posted by TheKidNixon (1564 posts) -

I also feel the need to mention that Kudo doesn't always wear sunglasses because he thinks it cool, he does because his retina condition (I forget the specifics, there's a youtube video of him talking about it) that makes his eyes extra sensitive to light.

@JJOR64: Lovin the video! 
  
@TheKidNixon: @mnzy: So this explains the glasses, and then he thinks: "Well now that I have to wear sunglasses I might just go all the way."  He still wears Carhartish pants, a PURPLE west, vans shoes, is shaved like a rapstar, moves strangely and has a pwetty too cool tone of voice.  
 
edit: btw. I love those kinect game they're showing. Gotta get one of those to impose gaming on my girl friend.

I don't give a fuck. Maybe you should have looked up Kudo before you made the thread or, even better, not made it and tried to be funny elsewhere.

Makes sense to me.
 
...plus his name is Kudo.

We knew that... old news...

#13 Posted by Insectecutor (1186 posts) -

At least he lets his hair down for the conference. His avatar suggests it's normally... more crazy.

What ever about his clothes I still like him he seems rather straight talking, and yeah the glasses are for a medical condition. Hes not the best but not the worst either.

i heard that he has to cover his eyes because he is actually voldermort 
#16 Posted by DukeTogo (1504 posts) -
@mnzy:  Or he was smart about mentioning that early and plays that card to wear sunglasses at night.
 
Anyway, Kudo is pretty cool.  We need personalities in the game world like this to keep things interesting.  He had some pretty cool visions for EA in the past, while Def Jam Icon was pretty divisive on who liked it, it wasn't just Rap brawler 3 - but a unique take on the genre that had some damn unique ideas.

He reminds me of Mitch Hedberg which means I automatically can not not like him.
 
(ps: If you read "Mtich Hedberg" and said "Who?" hit youtube immediately)

Cool story, douchebag

#19 Posted by ectoplasma (977 posts) -
@momosauky: rofl 
 
Today, everything seems too funny, i hope it's not the gin. This Kinect stuff has me totally stoked.

"Kudo" still looks like a douche, eye condition or not.

I agree that this was one possible venue to take!

I'd definitely roll one with that guy

Also of note he didnt replace J Allard, Kudo has been the creative director for Natal all along. J Allard was working on the courier.

#24 Posted by ectoplasma (977 posts) -
@goodwood: I just meant replaced as the cool guy when giving a presentation. But I never saw one of those. I just heard about the "J Allard sit down" and so on. And Kudo struck me as especially "hip" and "talking to the audience", too.

He looks like either a child predator or the guy who parks in the high school parking lot like five years after he graduated/dropped out and still trying to pick up 15 year old girls cause "Hey, I use to be the football team, and I can score you some beers/cigs/pot!"

Kudo always reminded me of someone, but I could never put my finger on who. Thanks for getting that nag out of my mind.
 
Also, RIP Mitch

He looks like a big butt plug.

Around the "black"?
 
Honestly though, Kudo tries too hard.  That, and he did kinda sorta contribute to the collapse of EA Chicago.

He was on the spot for Fight Night, I think he explained that he had some kind of eye problem that forced him to wear his shades inside at all times. Some user sent in the question "why are you wearing shades indoors"... and that was his response. 
 
So if true, that makes everyone in this thread a deuche.
