Anyone Else Surprised This Isn't A Suda 51 Game?

#1 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

...come on, this has Suda 51 written all over it.   
 
No other guy has the mind to make fuckary as this, and it's surprising to see Atlus doing this with their own staff.  Everything from the trailer screams of Suda, from the music, the sex, the dialogue, and concepts. 
 
Oh well, just the vibe I get from this game...maybe a big surprise will be that Suda 51 wrote or had part in it? 
 
Who knows, a guy can dream.  :P

Maybe its a joint development between Suda 51 and Atlus. ;)

In their last game you jump into a TV where a hollow bear named Teddie accuses you of murder. THIS IS EQUALLY CRAZY.

Suda 51 and Shin Magami are two of the best I think in obscure twisted awesomeness. 
 
Reason why I wouldn't say its suda is because the lack of dudes bleeding out all over the place and the lack of the F-bomb droped once in a while. 
 
I'm looking forward to this.

We've only seen a single quick cut trailer; we don't know much about it at this point.  Maybe it's not as crazy as it seems.

This actually looks like a typical Atlus game to be honest.

well Atlus is known for using sexual,demonic and ocult themes in their games.So it feels very Atlus to me.

This. Suda is more ultra violent hilarious mindfuck, this isn't (yet) on his levels of insanity ;)

But that's only in his nightmares.  Everyone's nightmares are far from normal and lack coherency. 
 
As far as we know, his normal life is just what it is: normal.

Ya, Suda didn't come to my mind while watching this; instead I just thought, "Oh, ya another crazy / awesome / messed-up Atlus game".

Well.....looking at Atlus' previous titels....I somewhat doubt that.

@mutha3: True, but we'll see.  Maybe all the craziness could end up just happening in dream world, maybe not.

What are you talking about...? Atlus is pro at making fucked up games. In Persona 3, you shot yourself in the head.

Honestly, Suda's games are messed up in a way that's completely over-the-top, self-referential, and constantly pushing exactly how over-the-top they can get.  The Persona team (I wish I knew of a central creative figure on them other than Meguro) are crazy in ways that are justified in-story and based in some form of reality.
 
This is a game about the nightmares of a man with issues grounded in reality.  Suda's games are about physics-defying assassins in some fever dream version of our world.  Suda's last game began with a decapitated man delivering a monologue.  The last Persona game began with you getting off a train and shaking hands with a gas station attendant.

Meguro is only a  composer, the main dude/director for SMT games(the ones worth playing, at least) has been Katsura Hasino since Nocturne in  2000. SMT games that haven't been under his control just aren't  up to snuff(though, most of them are still good). Thankfully, he's the director for Catherine.

Of course Persona 3 had a girl trying to shoot herself in the beginning. Then you take her gun and shoot yourself instead.

Or the way that Nocturne starts with the apocalypse within the first thirty minutes of the game.  Or how the world in Digital Devil Saga gets completely messed up when everyone is turned into demonic cannibals.
