Man, this game is nuts!
Holy crap, that was way better than I expected. Felt like I was watching a Dragonball Z episode for a moment there. I don't mind QTEs so maybe I'll rent it sometime.
Gotta say: I don't hate QTEs like much of the internet seems to, so I'll probably give this a shot. It really looks like God of War filtered through the lens of Japan.
Yeah that's Akihiko from P3. Liam O' Brien.
asura sounds exactly like war from darksiders
This feels like they took the laserdisc game format and updated it with a whole bunch of crazy.
I am so into this. 60 is a bit much though.
It's setup like an anime episode per chapter. Those breaks are exactly like an anime cut to commercial and return. Though such an entertaining, over the top story so far... lol
it seems like they put in a lot of work into the characters but forgot to put any detail into the places where you walk/fight making them look like something from last gen
This game HAS to be experienced, even if the gameplay is somewhat mediocre. I think it's worth a rental, or purchase when it's on sale.
I've never seen so much anger!
Yep, that was my exact thought while watching this. I am completely okay with this style of game, but I'm not sure if it is worth $60.
This is probably the most ridiculous thing i've ever seen! In the best way possible!
Can't wait to play this, I loved how crazy the demo was. March 9th is going to be an expensive day in the UK. Mass Effect 3, Asura's Wrath and SF X T
Not so enjoyable when Brad spends the entire quick look trying to hate the game. Yeah, it might not be amazing but after the first 15 off hand comments about how much it depends on QTEs and other shit, it gets annoying. WE GET IT YOU DON'T REALLY LIKE IT OR THINK MUCH OF IT. Christ.
Oh, and how ironic - Brad yaps on and on about how this game is pure QTE driven...and promptly goes to do a QL with nearly half of it consisting of direct control action sequences. Failing at video gaming as usual.
Brad's ignorance bothers me.
yep that's totally fucking anime

Well, to be fair,t he fights are to lead into more QTEs
this game is fucking beautiful
So CyberConnect2 took the format of the major boss battles in their Naruto games and extended it into a full game... then split it into roughly 20 min long episodes with bumpers in the middle, pre/reviews and fat mid-battle cliffhangers?
As long as this has an option for japanese voices, sign me the fuck up. (Not that I have anything against Liam O'Brien, he was amazing in Darksiders and FFXIII-2)
this is an interactive anime. maybe Anime Vice should review this instead?
Did watch the video but I will say its an interesting game. Weird in parts.. like it was made not for American audiance obviously. Very B game ish.. some parts where fun some visuals where interesting.. the handel... i didn't like.. very simple. so Tylers vote.....
3 stars out of 5....maybe lol.
I think this would have looked cool with cell shading
I.. I don't get this game. But I think that I'm going to rent it, because it seems so ridicoulously awesome, that it has to be played.
that spider is golden!
Not really into this, but i agree amnesia is way too over used, and convent. Time travel is a much more interesting McGuffen, and hides the characters past very well.
Oh my god, that was fucking exhilarating! Maybe when it's 40 bucks I'll get it.
Some pretty badass moments there.
Some of these comments make me really wonder why some people bother coming to this site at all
Brad's gonna have nightmarish Lost Planet 2 flashbacks if he reviews this.
I love the evil guy's laugh.
Man, I have hated everything about this game since the first time we ever saw anything about it. That hideous art-style that shouts "I'm a twelve year old masturbating over low-quality anime and I need a videogame I can put on the shelf next to my DVD collection of that screaming orange ninja kid".This might be the ugliest looking game (as far as art-style goes) I've seen this entire generation.

I'm sorry to hear that.
He did mention that he felt as though he had misrepresented the game, as his experience prior to the Quick Look had included a lot more quick time events.
The parts where you're actually playing look boring. If it was 100% crazy QTEs I'd be more inclined to "play"
This quick look sold me a copy of this game.
Professor Layton and the Unwound Future - Dimitri Allen, presentor, Subject 3
Good ear, Brad. He's also Darksiders guy. Liam O'Brien.
Man, this is just a couple of schoolgirl-raping-tentacles short of "Crappy Anime Stereotypes: The Game"
This game looks amazing.
It's really kind of shocking how they commit so hard to creating an anime, and then don't have OPs or EDs
No theme song to get you hyped, no completely out of place ending credits song.
I guess that would eat up too much time for players, but I say if you're gonna go for it, fuckin' go all the way
While I definitely don't see any reason to pay $60 for this game, it still looks like something worth paying $30-40 for instead of just renting. Mainly, it doesn't look very 'good' as far as actual gameplay goes, but it does look wonky enough and probably short enough that it will be one of those games that's just fun to sit down with every few years and go through and I suspect it won't be easy to find later on.
My god. This is the definitive Dragon Ball Z of video games.
I love how bewildered Brad is about the game, during the tutorial. Hilarious stuff.
