    I am shocked. Simply shocked.

    I had no idea it was coming out this week. I saw an ad on Best Buy and thought surely it was a mistake.

    So, no commercials, reviews, or hype of any kind?

    It's going to suck isn't it.

    It's a Grasshopper game. No More Heroes 2 released the same way.

    It's a shame the game isn't catching on in the mindspace of the Internet yet. Maybe it'll have more of a factor once it gets released into people's hands. Though sadly it looks like funds are tight for me at the moment, so I'll have to reconsider getting it as a full release.

    I knew this was coming this week, but I'm disappointed that it's being pushed out the door so quietly. Seems EA is taking all the marketing bucks away from Alice and SotD and saving it for Battlefield.

    There were some pretty funny developer dairies, but yeah, it's coming out with a whimper as far as marketing goes. :(

    I sorta like when I dont hear about a game at all and then when I do its being released in a week or so. Cause last week I heard of this.

    Similar to vanquish, when I saw a preview and was excited cause I immediately knew the cashern background of it all... then thought, oh well I'll have to check that out whenever its done, and "oh snap" its out in a few weeks.

    Also this game references demon pubes... looks like a win!

    I'm gonna be really sad when nobody buys this

    when I went to get vanquish at 9 pm release day I asked the guy how many copies of fallout: new rehash sold as that came out the same day. he said about 60.

    I was the first guy to buy vanquish all day :?

    Dammit Best Buy.... I thought i had $10 reward zone points sitting there for me for when I go pick this up, but that shit expired. Not that I was paying attention since I never really go to Best Buy anymore.

    Still getting this on the way home today. Looks fantastic.

    500 points is a $10 off coupon I think... I think I had over 600 points or so. You can print off the coupon or have it mailed to you, but there is a time limit on keeping points where they automatically sent the coupon to an old address I had on there. I went to print the thing off today and noticed it also expired.

    Meh, only 10 bucks. But a stupid rule... I'll stop by Target or something instead since there is no reason to go a few minutes outta my way to Best Buy without the coupon now.

    Yeah, so far it seems to be a combination of suda's batshit insane concepts + mikami's ability to make refined and awesome gameplay systems + yamaoka's music.

    Which is totally fucking awesome.

    Im on 2-3 so far. "The Man who never had his fill" was bizarre to say the least.
    I wonder if they are going to have those for all of the boss monsters (since that one was talking about George, the boss you just beat.)


    Also, apparently Kotaku is doing this Act a week thing... I wonder if they realized that Act 1 is merely the pre-opening bit, and the real beginning of the game is act 2?

    Yup, this completely flew under my radar, but just read the Eurogamer review. Similarly, not going in at full price but will grab when it inevitably gets cheapified.

    Didn't realize this was already out. Suda has a high position on my list due to me really liking Killer7 and that shot of the ghoul getting punted reminds me of God Hand. I probably won't be scour the lands for this for a day or two, so I'll be looking out for PA forumer opinions on the game. People seem to like it so far...

    My brother was watching me play in 2-1, and while I'm dashing through baddies and generally not taking the first group of Normal Demons too seriously, my brother was applying RE4 logic, blasting me for not being fully attentive like there's a major threat. He missed the intro and didn't know how silly the game was, and was all urgent like Re4.

    So yeah, this went from "What's that?" to "I gotta try this!" in about a day. Crazy Suda 51 stuff, Mikami stuff, Yamaoka music and homages abound? And raunchy humor as the icing? Sounds like a party to me!

    Between Bulletstorm, Duke Nukem, Anthony Weiner and Shadows of the Damned, 2011 has been a big year for dick jokes.

    If you goto the rewards zone web site you can set it to bank your points that way it doesn't print the coupons as soon as they become available. This way you can save a year of points and get like a 50 dollar coupon instead of a random 5 here and there.

    This game is fantastic. Beat two bosses so far. Wow, the grittyness and humor are perfect.

    The controls are so good. I never minded RE controls and RE4 really improved on them... but this is just great. And it is similar to RE controls for obvious reasons, yet its not like them all at the sametime.

    I have Dungeon Siege 3 on steam which I paid for a while ago... its not gonna get much play until I wear this game out. Knew nothing about this game last week, so great.
