Itagaki...i expected more from you.

I wish it was futuristic because thats how I prefer my shooters, but another shooter?
Well I cant complain on that considering its not another military war shooter.

The whole Grindhouse-modern realistic-kill bill stuff isnt my type.

But I am willing to wait and see much more, especially if I see more of the hack and slash part, even if its little, Itagaki is a master of doing this.

hmmm. i'm getting some major "wet" vibes. which isnt a good thing AT ALL. i'm not a fan of itagaki in anyway due to the games he's responsible for. seems this new game isnt going to change that much.

Agreed. That clunky faux-Tarantino nonsense is NOT the kind of comparison you want to draw. Like Wet, it'll depend on how good the combat and controls are.

Also, he's no business talking about Dead or Alive and epic masterpieces right next to each other. XD
