Hey, looks like one of the new chars is "A muscular pimp named slickback"

The trouble with Platinum Games is that their target market always seem to be 12 year olds.

Hard to believe this is the same bunch that made the sublime Okami.

It breaks my heart that I think IMO this game looks very bad, and I can't help to think it will fail.

Still love Platinum though!!

Mad World was one of Platinum game's weakest IPs and I'm not quite sure what they are thinking jumping back into that universe.

That pinkish lady looks pretty cool. Pity Bayonetta didn't look like that. :/

Yeah the sublime Okami, wonderful artistic game that sold poorly across two platforms. Unfortunately, there is a fiscal reality underlying the game industry that means this whole "broad audience appeal" thing is unlikely to go away anytime soon. Having said that, so far I have no reason to believe that Anarchy Reigns will not be a fun title, sometimes being a game snob can also go too far. Platinum have a pretty damn solid pedigree with action games and I enjoy the nihilistic humour of their titles.

Still, fingers crossed for a sequel/ spiritual sequel to Okami some time in the future...

Still, if it's a decent action romp with the online stuff it might still be pretty cool :)

About the game

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: it's a shame though. 360 had a lot of these games but they are all gone now. I guess they don't only not sell on Japan, neither in the West too. (2 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker I wonder if Phil Spencer's visit to Japan is going to change anything. (4 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker However of all recent Japanese games, I'd say Nier would actually sell decently on it. Of course not in Japan but I bet quite a few people in the West would buy it. I would. (4 Hours ago)

    Moonwalker @asdfg: Not necessarily talking about here only but in general. I think we all know that most Japanese games sadly don't sell on Xbox. (4 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @nostradamus: Oh it sure is fun. Combat feels really nice, especially when you get to do the executions. The thing is, there is a shit load of combat and it can get repetitive. How much does it cost? (4 Hours ago)
