I found the PC version of Zeno Clash to be extremely off-putting. That had nothing to do with the gameplay, which was fine. It just... I don't know, it creeps me out. The design of the different characters, and the concept of "Father-Mother" just... makes me feel all weird inside.

If you're looking to get creeped out and you don't have a functional PC, you're in luck, because Atlus is planning to drop Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition on Xbox Live Arcade. It'll hit on March 31. The publisher released some new images today, so hey, maybe you should check them out?

NO MORE FATHER-MOTHER! CAN'T TAKE IT!
 
Seriously, Zeno Clash is without a doubt the weirdest game I've ever played - and I've played my fair share of Japanese games.

I'm not even sure what kind of game this is. Curious to see if people think it ported well.

Meh, Father-Mother is just a big, fat phoney. That's right, he's just a phony!

Also this game is pretty awesome. Except some of the fights towards the end were just monotonous and too goddamn hard. Hopefully they've cleaned that stuff up. Some of the lightning-fast counter stuff might work better on a gamepad.

Father-Mother is nothing on Nier's Demon-hermaphrodite

@Slax:  It's a first person brawler. And sometimes you shoot people.

I loved Breakdown, Mirror's Edge ... really any first-person game that puts a different twist on the genre so I'm really looking forward to this.

I can't recommend this game enough if you enjoy weird ass shit. It's definitely not for everyone but if you have the tolerance, it's amazing. I admit some of the enemy designs actually made me cringe while I was playing the game.

I've played the demo on pc and thought it was pretty cool. Is it worth a full purchase?

@Ubertron987: It certainly is. The setting and mostly-nonsensical story are interesting throughout the whole game. The gameplay is quite good and weird too.

Breakdown was one of my favorite Xbox games and this is as weird as that then I will probably love it.

Good to see this is coming to XBLA. It's a weird game and a great game. Good to see it's getting more attention.

The trailer actually made me physically sick. I find myself unable to look at screen shots for this game, I'm fine with gore and violence, but whatever it is, like the 'gore' in splosion man, this just creeps me the fuck out.
