360 Magazine: Is aiming for cheap titillation still OK?
A sexy step too far? Probably, but what's so wrong about a barely legal, scantily clad girl chopping up zombies with a huge chainsaw, while occasionally giving glimpses of her underwear?
Tomraider, Soul Calibur, WWE Divas, DoA, Bayonetta, Wonderboy with his half naked GF in the Sega Master System and I can go on and on and on. One is as bad as the other and this is no different. Get over it people, it is a cheerleader with a chainsaw kicking ass. In the world of video games, is this anything new?!
If Grasshopper starts implementing tentacles in the mix then I would say its 5 steps from being too far.. But that's Suda 51 for you. I find it funny that this game is slowly stirring controversy but when Killer 7 was released on Gamecube, I hardly heard a peep. Now that was a title that I was surprised to be released in the U.S
What's wrong with a pair of digital boobs?
has this guy played a suda game before O.o lol
Oh shit here comes the fun brigade. We've seen it before in the form of Jack Thompson trying to get Bully and Grand Theft Auto banned for violent content and now we're seeing it from the feminists and white knighting retards on the sexual side of the fence who think these fictional females should be held to the same standards as REAL PEOPLE. People = INSANE
Exactly. It just saddens me how sissified the Western world has become.
It's Suda 51, you really think he's going to play it straight? I imagine he'll add his own brand of mad genius to whatever titillation you'd expect from a game of this sort.
Suda only does random over the top violence/sex crap to make up for his lack of skilful qualities. This guy needs to stop taking shot cuts as these are only rentals and 1 play games. Since gears of war, this guy is trying to prove himself. Doesn't work.
And here we have somebody who has never played a Suda51 game. I ask you, what are skillful qualities? You seem to think Cliff B. has them because you bring up Gears of War. Doesn't Cliff rely on over the top violence? Doesn't he rely on certain aesthetic choices that might come across as cheap or generic to some?
Gears of war has profound qualities over anything suda can come up with. Yes it has over the top violence, but not mindless ones with random shit to capture the crowd with such illusions. Gears of war in terms of character and gameplay is actually very well done and addictive. Something suda games never manage to achieve. Epic made popular with such violence and cheesy liners/Profanity...now suda seems to feel the need to outo it all and prove himself by going overboard...thinking this is what people want, when in fact we don't. unless of course it works well and has some sense behind it. otherwise it's a rentel and something people forget about quickly.
Okay, but what are skillful qualities to you? How do you define what Cliffy B apparently has and Suda lacks according to you?
Time out a sec, you said Suda 51 tried to out do Gears of War in violence and profanity when Killer 7 which came out much earlier on GC had almost the same amount (chances are more) but it was portrayed in a disturbing almost horror-like direction with a manga setting which won the hearts of fans and gave it cult-classic status. You really need to get your facts straight before insulting his work. Just pick up one of his titles and actually finish then you will realize that Suda 51 loves to take generic concepts like zombies, violence and sex but turns them upside down after the first boss. Also when I saw Gears Of War and profound in the same sentence I had to give it a chuckle.
i'm just picturing marcus with a lancer with the captions "bitch, please"
gears is one of the shooters with hollywood blockbuster effects.. Suda51 is doing games in other way .. His games have interesting stories and remind us that it's still a game, not a f*ing realism, brown/gray shaders and machine gun...
Your the type of person that just watches the gameplay and never plays it. Seriously, sudas one of my fav Japanese developers and he's had some great IPs
Wait .. This is a game?! .. Can I preorder this yet?! It's Suda 51. I'll take what is delivered and undoubtedly adore it. Why am I so behind the times?! I'm so ashamed.. For the question asked: THIS IS NOT A STEP TOO FAR. This is a step towards amazingness.
When has it ever been normal? Killer7 and no more heroes were amazing
