Finally!

inb4 this is too "Japanese" for the bomb crew

Suda51 is the man, it's just sad none of his games come out for the PC.

Suda defenders assemble! "This game is just very Japanese, you guys just don't get it, man."

Edited by Killercombo

I played this, did not hate it, did not love it: the Japanese lady is the easiest to "conquer"

That's not Youkse (Yuri Lowenthal) it's War from Darksiders/Asura from Asuras Wrath (Liam O'Brien)

Also, this and one other instance of the game they talk about the game FOR NO REASON!

Oh, I can tell this QL is going to be a classic. Five seconds in and I'm already laughing heartily. :D

Anyone else not getting this to run? The video player has been shit for me lately, off to Youtube I guess...

I'm getting images of Gal Gun and Creeper Jeff in my head as I watch this.

Awwww yeeaaaaaah.

Bought this game when it came out, had no idea it came out either. Fun time, it makes me think of a horrifying and adult viewtiful joe as I play it.

Sounds like that David guy is the voice of Akihiko from Pesona 3, not Yosuke.

Don't worry guys it's just a cultural difference and not actually bad and stupid.

Oh yeah.

Before I start watching this, my prediction is that this is gonna be a Quick Look version of Arthur Gies' review.

30 seconds in and laughing like all hell.

Honestly, what I've played of this game so far has been kind of awful, but also a brand of awful that I've found super entertaining.

Japan, you guys.

I suspect these comments are going to show very clearly that all that "we don't want to stop people making things, we just want more new things" isn't true.

Or at least, it's not nearly the 'majority opinion' that people put it out to be. Already @mbr2 has begun the savagery. 'innocent criticism' huh? yeah...

Every time someone feel like their 'young male wish-fulfillment' is endangered, bullet your brain.

Man, nothing makes you seem more intelligent than telling someone on the Internet to commit suicide.

I think this game looks gross with the leering sections and all that, but starvinggamer is totally right that people throw around those words without much of a clue of what they actually mean.

Ah yes, a wish fulfillment driven medium appears to be pandering to the largest demographic it has the attention of that matches up with the developer's experiences. Clearly this is such an abomination as to require suicide.

I suspect you'll be shouting similar things at women browsing the romance novel section at your local super store of course. After all, we're all about equality here c_c

All about Pink Floyd up in here.

I enjoyed the game, finished it today and "restarted" it on very hard, but then I enjoy every Suda51 game... Although he'll probably reach the Killer 7, which I consider his masterpiece, level again.

Posted by whatisdelicious

I really wish there was a "Killer Is Dead: Without All The Juvenile Bullshit" edition coming out. This looks like the closest thing we've gotten to something as good and as interesting as Killer7, but all this gross stuff with the women kind of ruins it.

Edited by Darek006

Man, there's nothing about this game that appeals to me at all. And it's not because it's "too Japanese".

Posted by Baggykins

I personally don't really want to play this game, but i would love to watch Vinny play it

Posted by kennybaese

I really loved No More Heroes and Shadows of the Damned, but this and Lollipop Chainsaw seemed to lean harder and harder into the gross parts of Suda 51 games. I think I'm going to pass on this one and seek out the PS3 version of the first No More Heroes instead.

So what you're saying is that when Suda is not busy fighting demons with his penis-sword or penis-gun he spends a lot of time at bars ogling women?

Posted by alibson

I only play mature games for mature gamers such as myself. Looking at a girl? What are you, Hitler? Go play a serious game about serious topics like homosexuality or paedophilia. Like Gone Home, now that's a video game, none of this crap for kids.

Guys I'm so mature you wouldn't even believe. If you could measure my maturity in numbers I would be older than the fucking planet Earth.

This looks great

Love the style

I'm saying that Suda has probably lived a life that's given him a better grasp of something that might appeal to a man then he would something that would appeal to a woman.

... though to be fair I think his games get a lot more fun if we DID assume they were biographical :D

Didn't think this would get coverage on the site... here's hoping the QL is legit!

Posted by Larsa

Aside from all the creepy stuff, this just seems kinda boring. No More Heroes was a cool game...

Creepy, gross, gameplay-filled interactive experience. Could learn a thing or two from Gone Home.

The optional mini-game which is 1% of the game almost made me vomit up my big mac.

Posted by MrGtD

Great Matt Hazard-level "meta" humor, Suda.

Posted by Hosstile17

Wait.... Is this Gal Gun or something? You can see their panties.

Posted by rasko_the_brave

Classy start.

Posted by Humanity

I can never tell when the crew will find inane Japanese gibberish fun and when they'll think it's lame and boring.

I like this game. The combat has something weirdly addicting about it with the execution system. It's very much like No More Heroes - straightforward somewhat boring levels with a crazy story in between. I will admit that No More Heroes has a much more quirky and funny story while Killer Is Dead is simply weird and hard to follow.

Edited by Ghost_Cat

If I'm not mistaken, it seems like much of the game and its content is there to intentionally paint Mondo as a real piece of shit.

Posted by LarryDavis

This game is great, probably Suda's best-playing game, but goddamn is the gigolo stuff super creepy.

@humanity: How would you say it compares to Shadows of the Damned?

Edited by ArtisanBreads

Oh Suda you sure know how to be so whacky!

Exactly. So ridiculous when there's plenty of Japanese things they all like. Suda's just.... mostly dumb. He tries so hard.
