Why would he be punching the finger? Shouldn't he just have been pushing the whole time? I fail to see how punching is more effective.

These are the kinda games Japan needs to keep on making.

#105 Posted by hi_im_rob (229 posts) -

Fuck yeah Japan.

Thats been the rule of anime and kung-fu movies, gotta be fact! "
 KEEEE-YAHHH!!!   *Karate chops keyboard*  *Poses* SOUNDS LIKE YOU SCRUBS NEED SOME LEARNIN'!

The whole screaming while doing sick martial arts moves and shit is actually based in reality and just twisted by Hollywood to seem cooler in movies, like they do with most other things, most notably explosions.

In real life though, martial artists make a short sound called a Kiai while performing a move. Its a quick sharp release of air basically that helps channel extra strength into the move when done properly.

I've heard about studies that reported a 20% increase in force when using the Kiai vs not using it. That seems pretty crazy.

Either way though. Its a thing, screaming isn't though.

That's a big ass finger.

#114 Posted by Xpgamer7 (2455 posts) -

Gameplay...This makes a lot more sense now...I think.

#115 Posted by Trebz (488 posts) -

That is a shit-ton of wrath, right there.

#116 Posted by sickVisionz (1299 posts) -

I didn't see anything that looked like gameplay.  Was Jeff being sarcastic or did I miss it?

#117 Posted by Virtua_Ben (144 posts) -

A Japanese God of War?  I'm all over it.

#118 Posted by Grimluck343 (1177 posts) -

Japanese craziness? Yes please.

Fuckin' Baron Harkonnen would be quite pleased.
All games should have MORE floating fat men!

What is going on?

#124 Posted by Bummey (623 posts) -

I have no idea what I just watched.

#125 Posted by Belonpopo (2144 posts) -

Confirmed: Asura is the Xbox exclusive MK9 character.

#126 Posted by TheWesman (445 posts) -

Japanese God of War fighting Space Buddha's Finger....there's no part of this I don't like!

#127 Posted by BraveToaster (12636 posts) -


#128 Posted by Olivaw (1225 posts) -

So I gather that the premise is "you are the god of fucking fury and you are FURIOUS because someone did something bad to you and you are gonna take ALL YOUR FUCKING FURY and kill EVERYONE"

Sort of like God of War but even angrier.

I'm okay with this.

I'm really getting impressed CyberConnect lately. Their .HACK series was interesting but not fun at all, because all 4 games were so same it was pretty much same game on 4 separate disc. but when .HACK G.U came out it was surprisingly good, and so are some of their naruto games. I hope they don't disappoint me in this game, you'll never know when the company starts to go downhill, I'm looking at you Square Enix.

so awesome.

#131 Posted by ThePantheon (806 posts) -

Japan rules. I was supposed to go there for 10 days around the time the quake hit. I'm rebooking to go in September around TGS. Can't wait to experience the awesome culture, and spend some good tourism dollars on a country that needs it.

CyberConnect 2 is a great studio. All the way back from the incredibly charming Tail Concerto for PSX (no small feat when you're dealing with furries), to the compelling premise of .hack, to their gorgeous, intense Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm games. If these guys are taking on God of War, it's time to take notice. Besides, how can you not support  - as a fellow Giant Bomb commenter put it - "...SIX ARM AKUMA AND GALACTUS BUDDHA FIGHTING!!!!!!!!!" XD

#139 Posted by BatOtaku13 (157 posts) -

if okami and god of war had a child...

#140 Edited by iDarktread (1263 posts) -

That was actually really cool.

#141 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6420 posts) -

That just seems crazy and nonsensical.

I dig it.

Japan literally has two voice actors; One male, one female.  The male one does yelling and solemn monologues, the female does squeals for rape scenes.

#145 Posted by AssInAss (3087 posts) -

Considering their Naruto pedigree, those all might be QTEs. I'm not as excited until I see full-on gameplay footage.

Lol, sounds about right.  Bugs the shit out of me when ppl go off on english VO's, while gushing over how great the Japanese ones are.

I'm getting a real "final boss in Pandemonium 2" feel from that big blue guy.

#149 Posted by radioactivez0r (876 posts) -

I'm glad to see that games aren't featuring bigger boss battles just to say they have bigger boss battles.  Also, wtf?
