Just watch this fucking awesome video and your jaw will fucking drop! beigebigeek.gif

What? He got rocket boosters?? Did he just ninja kick that guy? Was his gun transforming when changing weapons? Did he just grab a missile and redirected it at the thing? OH SHIIIIIITTT!! I expect nothing less from Platinum Games. Also, the president looks like a younger version of the president in 24.

holy crap. I was honestly thinking this game was gonna be shitty since I thought it was gonna be some Gear of War knock off but hell no. It's like Gears meets Einhander meets Crysis meets Shinobi.

I'm excited. Looks like a day one buy.

I can't top AC's explanation of the game. Looks fucking awesome! Platinum games am fuck amazing. There's still some creativity in Japan!

Yeah I heard this game looked amazing from early reports from those that got to see it behind closed doors. Dude certainly knows how to make an action game.

Oh em effing Gee. The demo was so badass! I mean, I completely suck at shooters and everything, but DAMN is the game fun. I was sold with the trailers, but now that I've played it I'm definitely gonna pick up a copy. Also, Platinum Games definitely has my support from now on.

In summary: awesome game is awesome.

This demo is fucking CRAZY. Booster knee slide into a drop kick a dude in the face then backflip and fill his chest full of shotgun pellets crazy.

Its a game like Vanquish that captures the spirit of Japanese development, this is the type of game that makes you remember why you love video games so god damn much. Its totally stylish, completely over the top, doesn't care that its a video game, in fact it EMBRACES it. And best of all the gameplay doesn't suffer for any of its style, the controls are tight, your guy does what you need him to do when he needs to do it, and cracks wise the whole time.

I CAN. NOT. WAIT. FOR THIS GAME! buttrock.gif

Soooo I finally finished this game yesterday. I got it Tuesday, but I took longer than usual to finish, mostly because I suck at shooters haha. With that as a background, I love this game.

It's always frantic and intense. Along with the crazy pace, there are some awesome stages to go along with what's going on. There's a good amount of weapons too, and switching to a set of 3 to fit the situation is vital. It also seems Platinum Games learned how to handle QTEs, as they're all handled with the same commands throughout the game. Fights with bosses and large enemies is also badass each time, and most the cutscenes in the game are SO S rank. On top of all this, the story and characters have the "awesomely corny" thing going on, which I dig haha.

What I didn't like is that the game ends before you figure it should, you're left wondering "wait, what?". Also, I loved the melee moves, but using them at all causes overheat. Not a deal breaker, but I wish they would have tweaked that. Overall, the reason I even played the demo for this game was because Platinum Games developed it. With Vanquish, they've for sure cemented themselves as a developer to watch for this generation.

Lastly, I know AC bought the game, did anyone else? It's awesome and you should grab a copy if you haven't. sniperer.gif
