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.
@Secret_Tunnel 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.
