I'm enjoying the game a lot. I don't play a lot of games of this type, but this is really well done and plays great.

I'm with you, man. I've never played this game but it looks cool as shit and I'm surprised no one seems to care.


EDIT: Hey, 2000 posts. Awesome.

Nobody gave a shit about the first one either.

Both Dishwashers are amazing games, the only reason nobody cares is because they were made by about.. 3 people.

If some big fuck off company made it, people would actually try it.

@RandomHero666: That is a ridiculous statement. People, especially those who come to a small site like Giant Bomb, hate big game companies and always look for some new "independent" game to pounce on in order to prove how sensitive and great of a video game player they are. Games like Braid and Limbo have already been praised to high hell here, and Bastion, a game made by a similarly low number of people has received constant publicity on this site. 

When the first Dishwasher came out, I believe the duders phrased their opinion on the game a little something like this "It's as if some 19 year-old kid decided he was going to make a game with XNA and wanted to throw everything in it he liked. He likes vampire, gore, Linkin Park, and ROCKIN' OUT. It's awesome that one guy could've made this, but I see no real difference between the Dishwasher and most of the other XNA Community games out there. If, say, the game was released on the community games service, it would've maybe been a huge hit on the service, but, when put up against other, much, much, much better XBLA games, it just comes off as some mediocre, immature hack and slash." 
Now, I am completely paraphrasing with that, but the trick with making something with a small team is not making it look as if you made it with a small team. That, and hack 'n' slashes are dumb.

Looked like something I could play on Kongregate or another flash game site.

Spend your money on Toy Soldiers, it's on sale on XBLA and is a much better "indie" game that does new things than a rote hack n slash throwback.

It gets no love because people like to look at it and make assumptions without playing it. If a decent number of people played it then there might be a different opinion.

Haven't played it myself, will do at some point. 

To answer your question why it's not getting much attention: PORTAL 2 & MORTAL KOMBAT

Dislike it or not, that's why.
