I love how shocking the competence of this game seems to be. 
 
Because I'm shocked too. Man.

Alex in a Quick Look is basically Brad, but without the constantly-afflicted-with-mono personality. I don't particularly care one way or another about him being in these QLs (though his "AHAHA. SEE? LOOK AT THAT. SEE? HAHAHA." personality in them grates) but I kind of wish there was some sort of stated explanation as to why Alex has been everywhere in the last couple months.

Other people might call me crazy, but the story has the potential to end up being really interesting.

After all the talk about the Necro bar I  found the reference to the rapper only logical but didn't really expect it up until Jeff mentioned Ill Bill. Excellent and very surprising!
The game looks like it could very well be my kind of thing but it appears there won't be a PC version, which is understandable but still somewhat disappointing.
 @Froed: Very cool - I totally missed that even though I played BG relentlessly...

Thats the dude that does Tiggers voice. Weird.

Alex is awesome dude.

This game looks alright, not too deep in the combat and after awhile things do get repetitive like environments and death animations. I do hope installing the game halves the load times as that would make me less inclined to play if I had to wait 20-30 seconds every time I simply died. I predict 2/5 stars from GB and I'll wait for a bargain price.

METAL!!!!!!!!!!

Man this is really remnicent of the classic Splatterhouse game. Lots of needless gore! I love it!
I also heard that the Japanese Splatterhouse 3 and Splatterhouse 1 and 2 is unlockable on the disc. 
I'll definitely buy it at some point when I'm getting down in my stack of games.
 
*EDIT* Awww you missed that pickup last part of the picture. Think of all the boobs this quicklook could have had! D:

It sounds like the voice of the terror mask is Jim Cummings. He's a pretty prolific voice actor:

This game needs more blood.

Wow this game seems stupid & gross.
 
Also I can hear the EZDrummer from Hell pack the music composer used because the genius used all the stock sound-bytes instead of actually, you know, creating his own rhythms.

I don't agree with the middle part, but I'm totally with you on the first and last part of your statement.

He was purposefully ignoring it. No nudity on a quicklook.

long load times god damn

Posted by scarycrayons

This game feels kinda jarring to me, because the original game actually seems more rough in a way!
 
The original's violence involved short hard punches to the face (or swift one-hit-kill weapon strikes), and that kind of simplicity was what made it brutal.  When this game has all these over-exaggerated walking movements, and 'God of War' style mass combos and blood painting the entire room, it... loses impact, really.
 
By making it more violent and graphical, they've somehow managed to make it less brutal and stylish in the process.

Jeff knows of Necro and Ill Bill, That's cool.

Posted by aldo_q

This actually doesn't look as bad as I thought it would be. Not great either, but I was expecting something horrible and it looks like it might actually be fun. Esp. when in a bit of a mindless mode. Not sure I would ever buy it however.

Posted by ThatFrood

Like Jeff said, I'm really digging how much this game just doesn't give a fuck.

Posted by MartinG

Now I am even more sold on this game!

Yep, that's him!
 
Knew I played something recently with him in it.
Posted by DrPockets000

I found out that the voice of the Death Mask is the same dude that provides the voice for Winnie the Pooh and Tigger.  Awesome?  I think so.

This game seems kinda lame.

Yes.

Is he wearing Globe hi-tops?

Posted by BelowStupid

the mask sounds exactly like pete from the goofy movies.
Posted by Portis

Wait... 
 
This game actually looks pretty good. I was not expecting that -- mainly because, as Jeff mentioned it's been in development for so long and had been passed around so much.

@Bennyishere:
I would have liked to see how far they pushed it with the photos too but guessing because it's a quick look that they missed it to not have to possibly edit it in video if it was too risque or he plans on starting over to get them all with more time to explore. He missed out on hitting a lot of crates & other possible things hiding things too.
Posted by Tweeker

I might pick this up for the hell of it. When it goes down in price of course.

Posted by Sauson

I'm actually playing this game right now and it's surprisingly good. Nothing outstanding but a decent playthrough and it has the 3 classic Splatterhouse games in it which is pretty cool.

Posted by John1912

Eh, looks like shit.  Sad....It looks salvageable thou.  New voice work, and a better/better looking combo/finishing move system and this would be passable.

Girlfriend held captive by a mad scientist in a big mansion, eh? This looks like gratuitously violent Grabbed by the Ghoulies. Unlike Ghoulies however; this looks like a Dude McLargehuge piece of uninspired crap, devoid of charm, color, and Grant Kirkhope-ness. Do not want.

Needs less Alex.

Edited by allenibrahim

Looks surprisingly fun. Loved the original. Also, I am 99% sure that the Mask is James Woods. 
 
Edit: Holy shit it's actually Jim Cummings!

But let me guess you play every Call of Duty game and will buy every new one they make.  The fact is its nice to have different genres of games but i'm sure you would rather play shooters all day long and shit all over anything that isn't a shooter!

Hey do you know if  it has the arcade version of the 1st game or the censored PC engine version?
Posted by JoelTGM

eh looks ok

The God of Splatterhouse was not interesting to me at all but when it went sideways like the original my interest went up.
 
They should have made this an Arcade title with Shadow Complex upgrades.
 
Bonus points for the body health display.

as a fan of glee... this is a really gooey game

Posted by rbanke

I dont hate Alex, but he always seems like he is trying too hard to be funny, but isnt. I kinda felt this way about Will Smith when he first showed up, but now I think WIll is awesome...so hopefully Alex will grow on me.

Bored the crap outta me

Edited by FatherHydra

The overall tone and theme of this game resonates deeply with my inner 14 year old self, but unfortunately, it just doesn't look all that polished.  I'll probably pick this up if I can find it on the cheap.

Posted by SuperfluousMoniker

This looks pretty bad. Combat looks like God of War only even simpler, and it doesn't have the production values that made God of War worth playing. Thirty second load times and instant death traps coupled with poor checkpointing aren't helping. About the only thing it's got going for it is how METAL it is.
