Sad but true. You can complete Lollipop Chainsaw just in few hours.
Hard to understand, but the title sums it up pretty well
google translate is crap :), anyway the game has 6 chapters and prologue, u can beat each chapter in 30-40 mins, it's really short but there are many unlockable (and sexy) costumes, trophies, good and bad ending, leaderboards, so yeah, there is a replay value
Yeah I ran an article saying it always hit me as the kind of game you could replay, but I'm yet to play it so...
You charge the game $8 USD an hour based on campaign length. For example, Skyrim has an incredible amount of content, but it's campaign can be beaten in about 8 hours, and the game costed $60+tax at launch which comes to about $64. Journey can be beaten in around 2 hours, so it's $15 price point is a steal. Hell, Portal 2 took me 6 hours to beat but had that long lasting $40 special. So it sounds to me like Lollipop Chainsaw should be $40. Now it's important to be reminded that games can get away with being 6 hours long--yes, even 5.5 hours long--if the content is valued higher then it's length. Battlefield 3 is an exception. Duke Nukem Forever is not. However, if a game exceeds 8 hours of exciting campaign length, for example the Uncharted series, MGS4, or as previously listed, Skyrim--the game is not paid overtime since it is only scheduled an 8 hour time-slot, it's their own time and they should have closed shop when they had the chance. Since the average MMO feels more like work then fun, MMOs are not paid minimum wage. They are paid what I call "the FoxConn Package." That means that gameplay time of 160 hours a month (plus 36 hours of overtime) can be condensed into about $400 a month minus 2 meals and a snack, and other necessities for yourself needed to survive, which brings the cost of an MMO to $0-15 a month. See what I did there?
I'm calling out blatant speed run to 1: garner hits and 2: build a dislike towards the game to help whatever negative gamer politics this person has towards LPC. "Quick! Shoot this easy mode speed run completion time out the door before LPC goes retail and stands a chance to defend itself!" Edit: This will sit happily right next to Vanquish on my shelf. Another 4 hour game I loved.
You beat Portal 2 in 6 hours? No, you didn't.
No one buys CoD for the single player so it's unfair to compare CoD's single player to another games single player. People buy CoD for the competitive multiplayer, something which this game doesn't have.
With the replay walue you can get how much? 8-10 hours... that's still much less than some other games offer, in one playthrough, for the same money.
oh good, as long as I can change my skirt then it's worth it then!
WoW $60 for 4 hours! either that's a Crack Whore or a Video Game only worth renting. They better have some great FREE DLC in the works.
There's no amount of free DLC that could ever make this game worth the $60.
oh wow! I always thought this was a DL title. lol @ $60, yeah right!
hmmm ppl pay that for cod and the stories barely last 4 hours either
Yeah, but I have 27 days in the multiplayer on Call of Duty. It's called "replayability" which will be worthy of commanding a $60 price tag. And LPC isnt my sort of game but if it has replayability then I won't crucify it for that price.
Can't get that with COD with an even shorter campaign length. I'd rather buy this game once than to keep re-buying COD rehashes every year.
It's $45 right now on amazon.com
i could still buy it but the game has to be really really good. Like vanquish which was 4-5 hrs but it was more than worth the buy at 39.99 not full 60 though
I agree, if the game is short, it better be pure bliss! I'm down for some pure bliss. Unfortunately, Lollipop Chainsaw doesn't look like pure bliss to me. Of course that is my personal opinion.
So is call of duty yet that sells millions each and every one of them so whats the point?
I beat it didn't rush lasted about 71/2 for me. Every hour worth it the game is really funny, unique and fun. You might hate this game, you might love it but I can guarantee you will not forget it.
i'm glad you enjoyed it :) can't wait for my copy
I really did a lot more then I was expecting to. The characters were memorable, the combat was easy at first then got progressively more complex. The game has tons of costumes and unlockables even after beating it. Leaderboards and zombie medals encourage you to replay stages. All together it is a really solid game. I highly enjoyed my time with it, and still do I've put about 14 hours in the game an it's still a blast to play.
Yeah Hollow, it doesn't make sense that it's "sad but true-" this is kinda like Bayonetta in that it's a fast action game built for replay, not a cinematic story-telling game built for cutscenes, or an open-world game built for exploration. As a fan of these kinds of games, I can't wait to play both LC and MGS Rising!
QUICK QUESTION!!! Are the Rei Miyamoto and Saeko Busujima costumes in game unlocks????
yes they are :) if u want to know full list pm me
i'm 4 hours in (according to RAPTR) and i am only on the 3rd level. Though i did play prolog over in the leaderboards mode. I am having a blast with the characters and the boss battles are fun. I love the style and i love the gameplay so far. The only thing i wasn't impressed by are the shooting sections.
Ha, it won't work. Save your breath, no matter how good a game is these days people will only buy it if it is 60hours long. Same thing I said about the Darkness 2. but people were so focused on the SP being 5-6 hours long they skipped an amazing game.
I don't skip 6 hour games, I rent or borrow them.
Damn 71 or 72 hours? That's some serious value.
Looks like another crappy game the media thinks we like thanks to people clicking on the hot chicks.
Have you played it? No? Well then your opinion means absolutely nothing. People like you are morons who have no idea what makes a good game.
I cant say it looks crappy because I haven't played it?
I agree. Plus I'd like to see the clown make better. Truth is it is an amazing game, has all the fun components a game needs, and the characters are an outright riot. This is why the industry is not as good as before, people take a look and then board hate trains BEFORE trying it, then Call of Doody comes out and they've done nothing new with the game, but fanboys insists upon its greatness. I'm sorry, but Hollow is right. If you haven't played the game, shut the hell up and go bark up a different tree.
kevnb +1 sir. Agreed !
Do you even know who makes it? I assure you the "hot chicks" is on the backburner of trying to sell this game.
Not many people care to know who the creator is behind their favourite, or least favourite, games music and movies. I like to know, because it often means that the next game a favourite developer releases will be one to watch out for. I'd love to learn the names of all the devs in the world, but it's not like there's any supreme source of this info. At least, not that I know of...
Anyone seen Prometheus yet? Somehow I keep thinking that Elizabeth is the blondie while David is, well... the head
I did two weeks ago, it was awful, thanks for reminding me
You obviously don't like to think during movies, then. You have to analyze everything in that movie.
I saw it, to me there wasn't anything to think about, unless you're into that new age garbage (basically, a mental exercise in futility). It's straightforward and shallow; it makes The Matrix look like Solaris... '61 novel Solaris. Heck, even the movie whips-up on Prometheus in terms of scientific concepts. This isn't a spoiler, but here's a warning before I speak anyways: The captain summed-up the whole thing a little past the middle of the movie, almost 3/4 in.
I have to admit it was pretty bad. A relic of the past. When you say "you obviously dont like to think during movies", Im not sure I understand. Its a pretty straight forward generic action/horror film.
here http://redlettermedia.com/h... An opinion from intelligent people.
Im not a betting man. But I think the people that mentioned the "sexy outfits" as to what makes this game fun sound desperate and need a girlfriend. Play it for gameplay or not,but just for sexy outfits..? damn.. Edit: Disagrees (lol) Okay, I guess I upset the virgins
To be honest the game is the last thing I've been interested in since Jessica Nigri turned up in that skin tight pink outfit at a recent booth advertising the game...
What about if you are married and have kids already? Are you saying that you are sure to have the ultimate babe as your wife so that there is no need to look at other women at all? Will she satisfy you 100%? Really? I mean I'm married to a beatifull woman imo and we have 2 kids (a third on it's way) and i still like to watch other beatiful women. I'm loyal and just as big of a familyman as the next guy and i love my kids and my life as it is but I still like to watch beautiful women. They dress up sexy and my head WILL turn towards them even though I'm in no way desperate. I guess I'm just that much horny by default. Lucky for me this is not a crime and I talk with my wife frequently about sexy women and men with sexy clothes. We like beautifull people that's all. She is sure to tell me if she sees a sexy man with a great ass or something. Not many can be this open in their relationships you know? They are not even allowed to look at other openly. They have to hide it. I guess it has more to do with insecurity. i do get what you are saying as there are many virgins on this site no doubt. But as long as it comes to liking fanservice and sexy women I guess I will always be a teenager and a virgin in that department. I have my wife's consent so I'm good LOL!
4 hours long?! WTF, that is what I expect from a good DLC... I wont pay full price for a 4 hours game. I might rent it someday instead.
that's why i saw it for 30pounds on amazon lol, there is much better games to get, anyway in a mouth it will be half-price
Yup. sub 15 pounds at thehut.com in 1-4 months or so. Not so bad. After playing it I sell it and get atleast 10€ for it so the entire experience costs about 5€ for me. This has happened many many times before. With Black ops the cost of my experience was almost 10€ but the game was brand new and recently launched when I bought it.
i don't sell my games keep them all =)
No big deal. The shortest games I beaten this generation were Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days and Rango. Both of them were barely 4 hours long.
I can't believe people are actually considering buying this game...
I wouldn't spend $60 on a 4 hour game cause today, games at least are expected to be 8-12 hours long.
Idk man, there's something be said for games that you can sit down with one afternoon and completely run through. Just finished Splinter Cell Conviction for the third time this past weekend-it's nice to know that I can move on to something else when I have time to play again in 3 weeks. Of course this is assuming those 4 hours are also incredibly awesome and worth revisiting.
The length does not bother me. I'd rather have 4 solid hours of a great experience than 4 hours of awesome and another 6 hours of filler. What does bother me is the content. This just looks stupid...like the bastard child of Buffy and Highschool of the Dead. Too bad it's more of the latter, than former.
good news for me
My favorite game this generation, Mirror's Edge, is about the same length. I've replayed that game about 20 times. Same thing here? We'll see. Picking it up tomorrow.
its like a demo from psn
I saw the gameplay and it looked fun like one of the older PS2 games but better graphics. Debated on pre-ordering but if the main game is only 4 hours then I'll wait for the price to drop or buy used and by then alot of DLC costumes will be out. Looks like a fun play though.
You can also complete Dark Souls in 8 hours doesn't mean I didn't put a good 60 hours into it. Articles like this confuse me.
you can complete dark souls in about 2 but thats not the point this game just looks fun to play and the costumes are cool too imo.
Yeah ive put over sixty hours into Dark Souls also, but there is no way anyone can beat Dark Souls on his or his or her first try in eight hours. If you've played Demon's Souls then you might be able to beat in in around 25 hours.
This game is exacly what i expected nothing special but fun. Its basicly a dinasty warrior girly edition
4 hours long.....LOL. Don't buy this crap! Lollipop Chainsaw??WTF?
God of War 1 and ICO can also be beaten under 4 hours yet no one even said a word about it.
yeah but those are speed runs of the game... also if you go and buy ico or GOW1, they are relatively cheap The problem is to drop 60 bucks (its 70 dollars here in canada due to our taxes) for only 4 hours is pretty ridiculous
who ever said that they didn't beat Lollipop Chainsaw on easy? plus, the game has 2 endings (all unlockables too) and GoW and ICO don't. and for games being older and cheaper - that's irrelevant. By that, you can say "why is RE4 longer than RE5? and it's cheaper and older too!" this game gets attacked because it's sexulized and it has a cheerleader killing zombies, by many that looks pretty stupid but I think that the game's gameplay looks pretty fun and I dont really care for sexual innuendos and cheerleader stuff. EDIT* the developer says that the game is 10 hours long. http://www.gamezone.com/pro... these guys probably beat it on easy.
They also didn't cost $60.
Neither does LPC. It's $45 on amazon.com right now.
