Great look at the game thanks to the fine folks at Gamespot

Here is a look at the game for anyone who wants to dig in. I for one... am not watching it. I don't want anything spoiled for myself. If spoilers aren't a issue with you then jump right in and watch. They show off a good 20 minutes as you can see by the timestamp on the video. I can't wait for this June 12th can't come fast enough.

After skimming through the video, can't say it's going to be a buy for me. I don't know, just seems too zany for me.

Also, I live with 3 women, and I don't know what playing this would do to my reputation with them, lol.

At this point I'm all in. I'm staying away from anything resembling story or long videos so I can experience the insanity myself.

I'll possibly get it.

"I have boughten..."

"They have boughten..."

I want to buy this game, but the guy that is representing the company and game is really making it hard for me. I don't want to support someone with bad grammar.

I'll buy at 20 bucks

This is the first I have seen of the actual gameplay and it looks like a "Simple Series" game without the advantage of being a budget release.

I really like the dodging mechanics. I feel that aside from the fantastic combo mechanics found in Bayonetta and Devil May Cry 3 you also need to be able to avoid damage/counter attacks. From what I saw in the video the game's combat mechanics seems to be the best that Suda has put out. All in all it seems to be a very serviceable action/beat em up game.

Oooh, this looks like no more heroes.

Pass. I'd rather watch someone play this game rather than play it myself.

#10 Posted by Demoskinos (15180 posts) -

Okay, I broke down and watched some... I heard them talking about the difficulties. There is a Perma-Death Mode in this game. AMAZING. I need to try this.

Will probably get it mainly for the story and characters and all that jazz, but the movement of juliet looks a little stiff from what I've seen so far. Then again, so were Travis' movements I guess, so I shouldn't be that surprised.

It's nice to have a good look at this game, finally. I was holding off on it until a Giantbomb Quick Look, because all of the trailers have been terrible. They've done a great job of showing off the tone of the game - Suda 51 + Grindhouse, with a ton of awkward cursing (like Bulletstorm, it's off putting imo) and weird humor - but have barely shown any gameplay. I knew it was a brawler, but how much depth would there be? Was it going to be like No More Heroes? I mean, it's pretty clearly the spiritual successor to that awesome series.

It's good now to see that the campaign appears to hold up. There's character upgrades, the whole "Sparkle" system (it's very apparent that scores and leaderboards will be important here), and in general some nice varied pieces to the campaign (like having Cordelia act as a sniper at that one point in the video). With some cool bosses too, it really looks like Lollipop Chainsaw should be a pretty great brawler. AND it's $44 on Amazon - thanks for that pre-release discount, Warners.

Still though, I'll probably pick it up a bit later. I just bought a car; gotta lay off the game purchases now. Can't get a new game a month anymore; not if I wanna pay this thing off in a timely fashion. I also have a stack of games to shave down anyway; once I finish a few of those, I'll pick this up.

Doesn't look great gameplay-wise. But as long as it has enough Suda madness I'll pick it up

#15 Posted by buft (3320 posts) -

It looks nice and the ombat looks great but the part that they showed looks pretty boring, moving from area to area like that doesnt seem like it would keep me engrossed but he did say that the whole game isnt like that so i need to wait to see more of the game before I decide.

#16 Edited by billyhoush (1195 posts) -

I can't justify paying full price for anything Suda makes. I'll pick it up if the reviews are decent and once it's discounted. I find developers like Suda51 and Tim Schafer to be the M. Night Shyamalans of video games.

#17 Edited by Roland_D11 (195 posts) -

@billyhoush: I am the opposite. I buy almost anything Suda and Schaefer put out day one to support them. Shadows of the damned was one of my favourite games last year, for example. And it is a crying shame that it didn't sell well. Lollipop is already available in some stores (they all broke streetdate, which is June 15th) here in Germany, I will get it later today.

Dat ass.

On the other hand those tiny drab environments, lackluster visuals and gameplay that was already starting to bore me just from the few minutes of the video. Meh. Pretty much what i expected from previous demo showings.

And that joke at 14 min ... ugh, just UGH.

Agreed, that joke at 14 sealed it.

I love Suda games but I'm sure to get weird looks when people see this game on my shelf...

This game looks pretty good. I'd probably just rent it or buy it used at Gamestop and return it before the seven day limit.

#22 Posted by Phatmac (5730 posts) -

I'll rent it.

#23 Posted by Jayzilla (2573 posts) -

she's 18 because we say she is, even though we animate her to act 15 with the body of a 20 year old. i'll pass on the creepy pedo-cheerleader game. plus, everyone knows suda's work is best enjoyed as a rental for 5 dollars or a bargain bin purchase months after the fact.

I don't get it.

@Jayzilla: Sense. You make none.

#27 Posted by NegativeCero (3041 posts) -

In honor of this game, I bought Shadows of the Damned (not really, just really wanted to play it). I'm not interested at full price, and I feel bad about it because I really like the crazy ideas Suda come up with.

#28 Posted by BLKZOMBIE (129 posts) -

Bought this game for 35$. Amazon was selling Lollipop Chainsaw for 45$ at one point and I had a 10$ credit I needed to use, so what the hell. Looks like it would be worth about that, and if anything I'll have acouple hours of, what looks to be, fun.

#29 Posted by dibdab (66 posts) -

Finally some game play footage to look at. Looks just what I was hoping for. Will await my pre-order later this week.

#30 Posted by mitsuko_souma (134 posts) -

I would consider buying this if it was a $15 downloadable game.

#31 Posted by Mars (310 posts) -

This game looks absolutely terrible!

I spit water through my nose when I read "the fine folks at Gamespot" Ha ha ha ha

Wondering once they get this at GB when they will do a quick look of this.
