I want to compare demos.
I hope the XB Live Japanese one isn't locked to japanese like the Naruto demo that popped on Digiex archives a couple days later, then I would need to wait a week for silver.

if i recall correctly i believe they said the ps3 was the lead platform for this.. which should mean theres no excuse for us to be looking at another bayonetta incident

What I do and could be strange for a dude like me but I set my expectations way lower that it should be an as a result I always end up enjoying the games I hype.

But for this I just got a gut feeling like I had for Bayonetta,the game will rock I can feel it!!

Because I always say somethings like "This will be the best game ever made" and such XD

Wonder if this will be another Beyonetta style debacle with an appallingly bad PS3 port.
Commented on 2010-08-23 20:42:19
PS3 version is the lead platform.
Commented on 2010-08-23 20:43:16
I want IRAPTOIRS honest, true impressions of the demo here soon as he's done with it, is that clear, sir?

And it hasn't been hiding in the shadows. In fact, a lot of the E3 footage came from the PS3 build. So no worries.

If anything the 360 version its the one that has been in the shadows,I wonder how is it :)

Will get it anyway,the only thing that would prevent me for playing it its tearing,that is the only thing I personally cant stand,gets me headaches.

Not really. Depending on the website and stage show, you have a fifty fifty chance on the version the reviewer played. But, Sega obviously wants to push the PS3 version to assuage any fears.

I still think Bayonetta is best thing you can play on 360 right now so this automatically gets my attention

The only problem is Bayonetta's cutscenes that while fantastic, are very fussy to skip.Hopefully we can skip them little more easy this time
Commented on 2010-08-25 09:56:51
This is still a single player game right? If there's one thing I despise, it's multiplayer demos

  • droezelke
    droezelke @Moonwalker: I agree. Other than the Metal Gear series, he didn't really present something as good. And I thought MGS5 was ultra boring (58 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus never played snatcher, but policenauts has a awesome scenario. (1 Hour ago)

    b0vril I never liked MGS series, but I loved 5 (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Moonwalker: 2 is the best Metal Gear Solid though. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Ultimates do drive big plays. Don't think it makes everyone Seagull. (3 Hours ago)
