Suda 51 games are all style and no substance. I'm not surprised no one wants to buy it. It's a rental at best.

I wouldn't say Killer 7 and No More Heroes had no substance. Did you play either? But you're right, they both have a lot of style

I bought Lollipop Chainsaw recently and it was really terrible. Couldn't get through it. Suda51 games have a lot of great ideas, but they're poorly executed. He needs to partner with someone that can ground his games in playability.

Scatpants1565d ago

Killer 7 was his only good game. No More Heroes was a mindless hack N slash.

Moe & Huge Breast is near Essential elements necessary to get great game sales in Japan. "No More Heroes" for example.

Actually, this one seems to have a lot of substance, but seems to have been penalyzed by the style.

Scatpants1565d ago

I'm sure the gameplay will feature plenty of hacking combined with a large amount of slashing. then maybe to mix things up you will have a super move.

wishingW3L1565d ago (Edited 1565d ago )

true. None of Suda's games are fun at all. The guy is just like Square's Toriyama, a mediocre but overrated game developer.

Knushwood Butt1565d ago

While I loved Killer 7, I've found it very hard to keep playing No More Heroes. It was a missed opportunity.

Also, what's the point of having all the weird and wonderful bosses when they only get introduced a few seconds before you have to fight them?

I've yet to see anything about this game other than the weird graphical style and something about "gigolo mode" where you can see through people's clothes.

Does anyone even know what kind of game it is? Genre?

Because I don't have a freaking clue, and I've yet to see anything about it that even makes me want to go look for more info on it.

I just don't "get" this guy's games.

It's more or less like hack and slash game like No More Heroes: Heroes' Paradise or Lollipop Chainsaw.

Graphically, I don't think the graphics are top-notch, and it is a bit mix of noir and anime-style cel-shaded graphics.

You might want to see some of the game's videos on Youtube before buying it.

not hard create account with X name, spam popular websites, rinse repeat.

it only takes few idiots a month too make it worth it, an with the millions on the web everyday, it not hard too round them up.

Just played Killer is Dead a bit, and it is a not bad game. Not entirely great, but not bad. Like many of Suda51 games, his games are full of creative ideas, but lack of high replay value, technical issues, and some minor gameplay issues. So far, the best Suda51 game I personally think is Shadows of the Damned.

this is sad, but me is definitely buying :)
this is going to be one of the best games this year

Um no. This is where fanboyism and blind loyalty to a country gets you. You also thought Resident Evil 6 was going to be one of the best games of 2012 and look how that turned out.

Now I'm not saying this is a bad game, but it's definitely not going to be "one of the best games this year". Not by a long shot. Seems pretty shallow, I expected better from Suda. He needs to turn down the perve factor. He's made such great games in the past. Shadows of the Damned was awesome.

And j-blaze, before you bring up Famitsu, just don't.

j-blaze1565d ago

but according to me, it's going to be one of the best games this year :)
