I think you might have been better off doing a comparison video of the two games, considering both are flawed while each game do some things better than the other.
Both are equally fun as hell though. Wish we could see more games with a bizarre and campy nature like the NMH series has.
Killer is Dead just came out, man.
I’m living in Euroland release time so I don’t get the game until Friday. This video was scheduled for Monday though, but some issues pushed it back.
I was just replying to the guy who wanted more games like NMH, not demanding a KiD review right this instant.
Although I wouldn’t mind to read a no bullshit KiD review with actual analysis of the game instead of gender politics.
Apologies, though I think he was suggesting I compare NMH1 and NMH2 hence my confusion.
I’m aware of Killer Is Dead and do plan on picking it up.
I believe what I really wish is that more developers wouldn’t be so scared to make crazy games like Grasshopper Manufacture or even Platinum Games does. With how the industry is now though, I’m just daydreaming.
You raise some good points, though I take issue with your criticism of the new fatso enemy type being particularly tedious. There’s a strategy to taking them down quickly and effectively by building up your meter with a faster beam katana type before switching to the Peony and cutting them down quickly from a distance with the now-massively extended blade. I felt that wasn’t so much a demonstration of poor enemy design so much as it was an implementation of the new on-the-fly blade-switching ability. In the last game, when you got a new katana you never went back to the older ones, even the absurdly awesome five-bladed one. In this one, there’s always a time and a place to use any given katana. I often stick with Bloodberry as my main sword the entire game because its still a competitive option after getting new blades, compared to its quick obsolescence in the first game – but regardless of what your favorite is, you figure out what works best against some of the new enemy types and juggle accordingly.
That’s a lot of pontificating over a minor quibble though, I thought it was a good piece. As Michael suggested, I would be really happy to see you follow up with a more in-depth comparison between NMH and DS.
I really just want to see you compare platinum games to suda games. Most people put platinum games over suda games and I don’t completely agree with that.
