Shadows of the Damned videos

A collaboration between Suda51 and Shinji Mikami is a game I couldn't ignore and I am certainly glad I didn't. Shadows of the Damned's story is straight up crazy but then again you wouldn't except anything less from the creative mind behind Killer 7 and No more Heroes. The gameplay feels somewhat like Resident Evil 4 thanks to Mikami-San. It's a survival horror game at its funniest!

I was really excited when I initially heared about this game but after all this videos and reviews I won't get day one. Gameplay seems so uninspired and the controls so clunky. Is it really that bad? One of the good reviews (9 out of 10) stated that it feels like a downloadable game on xbla/psn for 20bucks and that doesn't sound so good...
I really think I have to play the game to appreciate it or are the reviews biased because of the famous devs?

Either the aiming is really hard or whoever is playing makes it look hard.

Played about 2hrs and i can say the aiming is really hard - it's a pain in the arse doing headshots. :( Shooting is much better in games like RE4/RE5.

Yeah aiming is pretty touch but the game is still a lot of fun...the 1 liners are AWESOME!

Too bad that kills it for me, I am not about to struggle with such a basic and well established mechanic.

Seriously, it's like fucking up a cup of coffee that such game design luminaries could fail with this mechanic and while the game has kind of a bizarre charm outside of this, it's absolutely key that this aspect feel good.

    GriftGFX Not to say they'll find success in their strategy this go around.. we'll see. I'm more confident in at least a meager success than most because I think they have more riding on this than WiiU. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's because you don't understand Nintendo. They've never built a platform around their competition. They've literally always avoided it. Since forever. (2 Hours ago)

    KORNdog @GriftGFX: probabaly comes from the time when they were actually competative and wanted to succeed? It's been so long i can't pinpoint when exactly that was. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Nintendo has been weird since they packed a robot in with the NES. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I think "same old Nintendo" is a great point. I don't know where the expectation for "normal Nintendo" comes from. (2 Hours ago)
