Sifu is Sloclap's follow-up to Absolver and it's due out this year for PC, PS5, and PS5. Here's what you should know.
This could quench my beat 'em up thirst!
"The announcement trailer shows a seemingly rapidly ageing fighter as he punches his way through hallways, Oldboy style,..." I said the same the day it was announced that the hallway fight reminded me of thr movie Oldboy. Seems that many agreed with me then, and now an article is describing the sequence in the way. I wonder if that was the intent of the developers. The idea of dying and coming back to life but age excellerated, is a cool idea. Knowing that you have a finite amout of deaths before old age make you incapable of fighting any more. A few games coming out are using a time loop, Deathloop, Returnal, 12 minutes, and Sifu to name a few off the top of my head, I hope the idea doesn't become stale too quickly from being over used. Not now of course but if more game continue to use the concept it be get worn out fast. Finally, when I think of Pak Mei (Pia Mei) I never think of Kill Bill V.2, but rather Fist/Clan of the White Lotus.
Shout out to the old school martial art films. The 36th Chamber of Shaolin.
Gordon Liu, yes the Shaw Brothers. I mentioned them in another comment yesterday. The five deadly venoms, 8 diagram pole fighters, Ghostface killer, kid with the golden arms, and more. Those were what I grew up with in the early 80s, Saturday afternoon drive in double feature movies on channel 5. Watching them and eating oodles of noodles with chopsticks. During the commercials that was practice time with home made nunchuckas.
It’s coming on PS5 twice so you know it’s good.
Very good, very good
Liked this showcased demo. Reminds me of movie Oldboy in one scene where is a fight in narrow passage.
Old Boy and The Raid....looks like almost Teken... But not.
