That's not "being biased," that's personal preference, and I'll straight up admit that I don't like the majority of its software, the way the controller feels in my hand, or any of its online services. I do, however, like good videogames, which is why Muramasa: The Demon Blade is the first Wii game in a long time to make me stand up and take notice. It looked, after all, simply amazing.
Developed by Vanillaware, the people behind Odin Sphere, and published by Marvelous, the people who put out intensely Japanese crap that a handful of people (Dale, Colette and me) care about, Muramasa is a hand-drawn 2D sidescrolling action game. It's pretty much my type of game. It was a TGS priority of mine, and I got to play a stage of it so that I might deliver a preliminary verdict."
