Reviews are out.

It's doing... ok. I might pick it up just for the weirdness and to be in that world again.

To be fair, this series has always been pretty polarizing when it comes to reviews.

I am looking forward to playing it and I hope a real No More Heroes 3 comes one day. Because that's what I really want.

Anyway, I'm sure my library will get this eventually. I'll have to put in a request.

I find the solid reviews encouraging for a weird, low-budget game. I think if you bought into the NMH flavor you'll enjoy it.

I'm picking up the physical release with the included season pass and I intend to have a good time even if it's a bit repetitive and rough around the edges. ^__^

As much as I love Killer7, adore the storytelling of Flower, Sun and Rain and enjoyed NMH1&2, I've been falling out of love with Suda and his shenanigans for while now. I'll probably end up getting this at some point, but I'm not hyped for it. I'd rather see Switch releases of his older games like The Silver Case or Michigan: Report from Hell. Unless he's gonna do the season pass thing with those too.

Yeah, after Killer is Dead (kinda fun but ultimately a disappointment) I haven't followed him much. I know some people liked that free to play Souls-like game he put out a couple years ago?

He's almost like Tarantino, Killer7 and Pulp Fiction were these groundbreaking masterpieces and since then they've been doing tonally similar stuff that doesn't push the envelope too much (though I love all of Tarantino's movies except for maybe Jackie Brown and Death Proof).

Flower, Sun, and Rain = Reservoir Dogs
Killer7 = Pulp Fiction
No More Heroes 1 & 2 = Kill Bill 1 & 2
Shadows of the Damned = Death Proof
Lollipop Chainsaw = Kill Bill again? Lollipop Chainsaw was actually pretty cool and unique

...maybe this theory doesn't hold up. Suda needs to make a Django Unchained.

Never played Killer is Dead, but after reading up on it and watching some footage it seemed to me like Suda's idea of what Suda fans thinks Suda's games should be like. An action game starring an assassin type character named for a famous rock personality, ultra violence, sexy ladies, surreal imagery and plot.

Or maybe he's just not all that and a bag of chips. I feel like Shinji Mikami's importance to a game like Killer7 is probably downplayed a whole lot in favour of the personality cult surrounding Suda. Sort of how people always forget about Takashi Tezuka when talking about the genius behind Mario or Zelda.

Hmm, for some reason I didn't realize this was a retail game at $40. I might hold off a bit.

@Zero

It comes with all the DLC season pass stuff, which are two new playable characters and their corresponding scenarios. Get it while itís hot! (or not, your choice)

Iíve played a bit of the game myself and I find it to be rather fun. Pretty sweet visuals, as one might expect.
