From software making Ninja Gaiden derivative

with quick timer events which everyone likes to pretend is a new feature when it has been around since laserdisc games. I wish theyd make a new otogi instead, this just looks too derivative/boring.

it's called ninja blade and even the logo resembles gaiden.

    BTW, I got a message from Obs that equated installing OS X on a PC with car theft, murder and rape. Is he normally like that?

    Considering your user image I would have expected you to get that one. :P

    It's like they tried to make the guy look as different from Hayabusa as possible and succeeded in not only that but also making him look like some guy cosplaying as a ninja. They don't have to make him look like Hayabusa, there are plenty of cool unconventional ninja designs like Shinobi. This guy looks like he wouldn't make the cut in Tenchu.

    The rest of it just too strongly resembles NG for me to care. A Ninja fighting ugly monsters inbetween cutscenes? I have that game, and it serves its purpose well enough.

    If there was ever a Dr. McNinja game I imagine the character model would look something like that only with white instead of black.

    Form the videos I've seen, visually it looks interesting, but on a gameplay level looks piss poor. I fear that Norihiko Hibino's awesome music will go wasted in this game.

    Yeah man, I tell ya what, man, that dang ol' internet, man, you just go in on there and point and click, talk about w-w-dot-w-com, mean you got the naked chicks on there, man, just go click, click, click, click, click, it's real easy, man.

    Well, I for one think this game looks awesome, but then I love Dragon's Lair. And I love character action games.

    So really, this game looks made for me. But I agree that the design seems a little off compared to what sells well today. Also, the title is kind of generic.

    QTE's can be good, but trying to make all the custcenes "playable" is a bad idea.

    Thanks for pics and a title. Now I know what's being talked about.

    Anyways.

    One of my favorite features of Ninja Gaiden was the lack of QTE. I despise them with every fibre of my being. I remember hearing about this game before and being interested. QTE is killling that. I like to sit back and enjoy over the top ninja shenanigans in cutscenes, not stare at the bottom right corner waiting to button mash.

    Like Heavenly Sword. Great cutscenes, but I missed half of them because I didn't dare look away from the screen corner for fear of missing a crucial cue.

    I think some games use them well, some don't. I thought they were entertaining for the most part in Shenmue because they advanced the plot and were paced properly instead of in every cutscene. Shenmue definitely overdid the QTE's but they were more fun in that game than RE.

    Everyone should play that game. Well, either that or I-Ninja, which was surprisingly fun.

    Guys, I just played the demo for this, and it's pretty awesome! It's like a combination of the Future Ninja of Ninja Gaiden and the Ninja-Turtles-like Totally Awesome mentality of Devil May Cry. You need to play the demo through to the end to know exactly what I mean. The boss fight drags on a bit, but the way you kill him is so over the top that I have done a complete 180 on my attitude about this game.
