I've just noticed that with the growing popularity of Ninja Vs. Pirates Vs. Vikings in general, more and more companies are hopping on the band waggon.

So far I've seen T-Shirts and other articles of clothing promoting either sides superiority.

This is something I came across recently, though...

http://xbox360.ign.com/objects/956/956552.html

Two video games currently in development. One is about Ninjas Vs Pirates. The other is a Viking game.

Coincidence?

Anything else people have seen pertaining to this Ninja Vs. Pirates Vs. Vikings war?

P.S. I didnt add Wizards simply because almost every game in existance has a Wizard in it...lol

along with that, facebook has been whoring the concept as well causing a mass interest boost.

I'm told I look like a viking, especially by coworkers. The next time someone mentions it I plan on saying something about how I protect the land of Target Electronics in the name of Thor.

It's a rather boring job.

I'm all for the ninjas! Ryu Hayabusa might just be one of my favorite video game characters of all time! But a game of pirates versus ninjas versus vikings? I don't know. I'm skeptical.

Anyway, off to fail another final!

I know, i think i have a pirate, zombie, vampire, and ninja on mine, all hidden mainly becouse so much people were sending me request to "BECOME A NINJA" it started pissing me off. Its stupid either way.

Well the Viking game will be awesome, simply because it features Vikings and I would love to battle for Asgard. However, the pirates versus ninjas game will probably be ridiculous, have a nonsensical plot, and be capitalizing on a recent trend.

Ninjas do rule, however.


Blasphemy. Ninjas are below both vikings AND pirates.

You were obviously thrown against a wall when you slid out.

Ninjas > Pirates & Vikings.



You lay me down as I go to the store
Sorrow ate me, I'm not me anymore
Play these heavens one more time
I'm not yours and I'm not mine

The trend is just a retarded rip-off

..of a mildly funny internet fad

...that was a rip-off of another completely retarded internet meme
.

It's a viscious cycle that ends ten years from now with our generation going "Holy shit! We thought the 80s were cheesy! How did we ever think that was funny?"

that was a pretty good comeback.

VIKINGS FTW!

See the whole pirates vs. ninjas makes no sense to me. In straight up combat, there's no way the ninja would lose, seeing as they're fast, stealthy, and have better weapons than pirates.

Silly people...

Pirates and Vikings are pretty much the same thing from different eras.

but everything was more "br00tal" back in the viking's day. I would say that the relative "br00tality" of vikings to normal 9th century life is the same as pirates to normal 18th century life.

So does this mean we've come to the conclusion that pirates are pussified wannabe vikings, and normal 18th century people are pussified wannabe 9th century people?

are you kidding?!

The vikings weren't just raiders and pillagers, they were an advanced civilization reknowned for their craftsmanship and seafaring, and most notably, explorers


Pirates just rob people for the fun of it.

Viking raids were to get as much loot as possible to take home to their country, plus the vikings were more organized

It was kinda funny at first, but then it started getting out of hand. Once I started getting five "NINJAS VS. PIRATES!!!" applications a day on Facebook, that's when it started to piss me off. The Viking game seems pretty cool though, not like it's trying to bank on this whole trend.

One last thing though...NINJAS. That is all.

Vikings weren't that organized.

Look I like Vikings better, I was just drawing a comparison between Pirates and Vikings because pretty much everything Pirates did, Vikings did better. So relax a bit.

Pirates pillaged and looted for a living.
Vikings did it out of necessity... mostly.
Basically the vikings raided when the needed something, but couldn't trade anything for it. (or didn't have anything to/wanted to trade for it)

Oh, and please call the "Vikings" for Norsemen when your are talking about them as a civilization/people, just to spread some information about them, viking means raid/raider, basically they would sail out going... viking...
The correct term of the people that lived in Scandinavia would be the Norse. Now,
