On a slightly related note, if you didn't get a chance to watch the GB PAX Prime 2014 panel yet, everybody's favorite lovable goof, John Vignocchi, announced at the panel that Ninja Theory would be helping out with some of the combat in Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes (2.0 Edition). They didn't really say to what extent they were helping out, but it was said that they were at least helping with the combat for the playable villains, as well as Princess Jasmine. That news kind of came out of nowhere, but it's an interesting addition to both Disney Infinity and Ninja Theory's repertoire.
Personally, I like Ninja Theory. I didn't play Heavenly Sword, but I thought Enslaved and DMC were pretty good games. Flawed, for sure, but they were certainly interesting and unique with a kind of ridiculous, grungy flair and style that they fully committed to. I'm a fan of weird B-tier games, and Ninja Theory's games have always seemed to fall into that category.
I also don't remember what the last big AAA character action games were besides the God of War games. Honestly, I don't know if I really consider anything that Platinum has developed to be a AAA game, per se (despite the Metal Gear nomenclature on Revengeance). The original Devil May Cry games, perhaps, or the Ninja Gaiden games? Most of the recent character action games within the past couple years have more or less been unceremoniously dumped into the quiet late-winter/early-spring months without very much in terms of marketing or promotion. So I don't really know what a "AAA character action game" is anymore.
And I remember Kung Fu Chaos. I remember it being pretty decent and amusing, at least from the demo.
