What the ...? When was this announced and more importantly how the hell did I miss such an announcement?

This looks uninspired to me.

I have to say that looks pretty bad and Im talking about the art design not the graphics, I dont like it at all.

It was announced at TGS last year. It's the Grasshopper Suda/Mikami collaboration under EA's Partners banner. Akira Yamaoka composes the soundtrack.

I'm really excited about this. I love No More Heroes 1 and 2 to absolute bits.

Shadows of the Damned, this year.
Devil's Third in 2012.

Both games don't have amazing graphics, but the gameplay looks really damn good (esp. Devil's Third with the melee + shooting).

Screens make it look bad, the trailer gameplay looks more interesting.

That's because the sole purpose is to make money from American gamers

I have high hopes for Devil's Third. I don't care for graphics at this point. Gameplay looks very promising.

SoD on the other hand reminds me of combination of The Darkness, Dark Sector and Unreal Engine which is bad. And that track from the trailer is just plain awful.

Yeah the art has that grindhouse look to it. (with a bit of gothic)

I dunno its different than other games, just like Bayonetta was with the art back then.

Just wait for some gameplay videos and hopefully a demo.

Also don't get me wrong, I like everything about it so far. There is a chance that all of that changes when I play the game.

It's just that my feelings never let me down so far and they say 'this is gonna be good'.

Or maybe I just like niche games.

Graphically, not expecially impressive but if the gameplay is good, that is a moot point imo. Or rather it looks decent enough that i could look past it if it plays well :)

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks also GOW looked interesting from some of the competitive matches I saw. But lots of weird sticky cover play (1 minute ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks just started playing the Forest today and sunk too much time with my buddy. WOOF that game is fun (21 minutes ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 New enemy types, namely the Snatchers, Pouncers, and Carriers were aggressively unfun to fight. Still a good game, not a great game by any means. 7/10 (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 The new characters mostly uninteresting and their chatter during the game annoying at times. Marcus/Cole/Baird was very fun. Giant robots super fun. Wind mechanic way overused. (1 Hour ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Beat Gears 4 last night. TLDR review: Interesting story that they fail to give a satisfying ending (or any ending at all to). Hit and miss graphics, mostly hit. Weak beginning, and super weak end. (1 Hour ago)
