That's a good bit of blood.

I wish this was a Harry Potter of War Quick Look.

Man, Alex is all up in these Quick Looks these days.  My paranoidy-sense is telling me there's some musical chairs going on at the Whiskey office.  At the very least in terms of responsibilities...

I have just enough time to watch before work. Love it.

mmm blood.

Edited by UberExplodey

...I'm barely 2 minutes in and already sick of that punching sound. 
 
Also, Jim Cummings. Voice of the mask, and EVERYTHING ELSE in cartoonland. Taz, Lurch, Pete from Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, Hak Foo from Jackie Chan Adventures, etc etc

As do I.

Why is Cat from CatDog asking for blood?

Can we have less Alex? 
 
I don't mean to be a dick but the guy says some really annoying things... he always says "That's a thing" or "This is a thing" 
 
And his stupid nasally guffaw makes me feel sick.

Definitely recognise the Mask's voice too. I know it, it just won't come to my mind :/

Posted by GunnBjorn

I'll have a go with SH2 and SH3 for the Genesis again. This... is not the SH sequell/remake I'd imagined.

Nudey pics are indeed pretty metal.

The punching sound is annoying, but it looks like a decent GoW clone. Far more promising than Dante's Inferno and I dig the Wolverine-like visible bones. And Jim Cumming's work.

This looks a little boring...I wanna see the 2D sections  
 
 
Nevermind!

Is the mask Pete from Goof troop/Goofy movie.....certainly sounds like him in places. I hear his voice pop up all over the place.

I bet it would get really annoying for you if you watch any NFL games on TV. "This is a guy..." "Here is a guy that..." 
 
For me, any giantbomb content is good content. Quit being whiny.

Rick Taylor seems to be having a bloody good time smashing dudes with his own detached arm. 
I think I'm going to try that myself now...

Between you and me. I already got this quest ages ago. 
 
Besides, if I didn't do it then either fwylo or DigitalSIN would've.

Aah, I almost made the wrong assumption by thinking it was Liam O'Brien. The Mask's voice sounded somewhat like Grimoire Weiss from NIER to me.  
Posted by Meltac

It actually looks really, really sweet! And I love the voiceacting for the mask.

Wasn't this in EGM in December 2007?
Posted by Phished0ne

Oh god Alex, I  remember that US Marines commercial with the chessboard.

Posted by homewrecker

the mask kind of sounds like tigger from winnie the pooh

Because he's also Eggman from SatAM.

I'm amazed they went with that voice actor for this game.  He doesn't come cheap and isn't exactly right for this content.  Maybe it's a lame marketing ploy to shock you and go "Daym they got Darkwing Duck to go all hardcore yo!"  Ironically, Mr. Cummings has not included Splatterhouse on his IMDB credits.
 
It's been almost 20 years since the last Splatterhouse game, maybe that was reason enough to leave it in the past.  The original PC Engine version was at least novel at the time and brawlers were still a genre people enjoyed, now it's just a waste and feels like an idea a dozen years too late.
 
If you want a brutal action game, there are already some fine examples like God of War, Manhunt, The Suffering, Ninja Gaiden and others.
 
There was only one Splatterhouse for the Turbo, the other two were Genesis games.  The original Turbo version was the definitive Splatterhouse and is how people remember the series, the later games were already tired brawlers and the third game played like a crappy Streets of Rage clone.
 
The 16 in the Turbografx 16 was in regards to the GPU that was 16 bit, while it's splitting hairs, it's not complete bullshit like the Atari Jaguar that merely added up the processors and called it 64 bit.  The 16 bit GPU also allowed for more colors on screen and larger sprites than the Genesis, so while the 68000 CPU the Genesis had allowed for more flexibility and power, it was lacking when it came to sprites and color palette - which is what defined that Genesis "look" all the games had.  The fact that the PC Engine had been around a year before the Mega Drive in Japan making the launch games for the Turbo already that much older by comparison to the more recent games the Genesis had two years later.
 
It came down to the fact that arcade titles were still a draw at the time and Sega already having 16 bit arcade machines made porting their titles exclusively to their console a huge advantage over the Turbo.  Combine that with the great sports games from EA and it made the Genesis the console to own.

Sorry, I'll calm down.

I have this horrible feeling that Jeff was inches away from digital boobs.

@MysteriousBob: 
 
The original Japanese name is Eggman, deal with it.
Posted by Little_Socrates

I I liked this game so little that I couldn't actually finish the QuickLook. No fault to Jeff or Alex, I just did NOT like this game. The Fight pretty much had the same problem...

THANK YOU. I knew I knew it from my childhood.

Load screen really bugs me. That game looks genuinely good to me. I'm picky about my brawlers, but I'd totally play this. Or maybe I would, if it didn't punish you with a half minute load screen for dying... That's a really, really major misstep for a game that I hope gets very difficult, like games like this should be.
 
I beat Ninja Gaiden (Xbox) on hard, y'all. I know what I like. But that game had an instant restart after being treated to the "game over" screen...

Posted by ch3burashka

I don't like how they constantly put the game down. Sure, it's dumb as fuck, but it looks like a lot of dumb fun.

@RiotBananas: I used to feel the same way about the guy back at Gamespot but now I think he's cool. Just get over the way he talks and you'll be alrite.

So this game targeted at?

Posted by Aegon

The mask sounds like Jim Cummings (Pete and Winnie the Pooh) and the dude you play as is definitely Yuri Lowenthal (Yosuke Hanamura, the Prince of Persia, Sasuke Uchiha).
