Zero Punctuation: Killer Is Dead

 Pages PREV 1 2 3
 

Suda51 is undoubtedly talented but he doesn't seem to enjoy making games. He had extreme control over pretty much every aspect of the No More Heroes games, and killer7, but with every other AAA he he barely even functions as producer. He seems to seek out potential collaborators who will do everything for him, then takes a writing credit and calls it a day. I wonder, since he's the guy who founded Grasshopper Manufacture as well as its CEO, if he only made those games because he was desperate to save his video game company?

No matter what it has to be better than Flower, Sun, Rain.

"We need originality, not this trite militarist crap over and over"

Then a game like this pops up, and they score it 5 for being too japanese. Aight.

The Sword thing might not be that far fetched for Japanese assassins. Possessing a gun in Japan is illegal and the punishment is so severe that no Yakuza is willing to be caught with one and they're so hard to find that you can't really learn how to shoot one. You end up with a situation where it's just plain easier to hack your enemies up with knives then to try and get a gun then miss horribly when you learn that it's not as easy to shoot as on TV.

And no doubt, without any guns, they have just as many mass shootings as America, because it's common knowledge the availability of guns is not a factor, it's all GTA and mental illness.

Hey, you keep your leftists bullhonkey to your self, we don't wanna hear your facts backed up by statistics, logic and common sense!

Am I the only one who noticed that Killer 7's box art depicts the PS2 Version? Every previous entry had a Gamecube one. YES I AM THAT SAD.

Wait wait wait...PEOPLE BOUGHT THE GAMECUBE?!

Is it just me or does Yahtzee seem a bit angry this week?
Does the new Australian PM have something against video games?
'Cause i can't see why else he'd be so angry about it everyone knew he was going to win.
Also Yathzee doesn't normally get that angry about sexist depictions of women, except in other M i guess.
Is it the money (in the form of gifts) for sex thing?
I've never met a person who doesn't hate that cultural trope but It's so hard wired into society it's almost impossible to get rid of

Nah, Coalition just have some really pathetic goals. Despite our economy being pretty damn great right now, they are gonna cut funding to a metric ton of stuff, and changed the NBN which was going to finally fix Austalia's infamously bad internet once and for all with a cheaper in the short term, shittier version which still relies on a copper infrastructure which WILL have massive upkeep and eventually have to be replaced by fiber anyway.

Yahtzee clearly did, he often says that he has a liking or fondness to the Gamecube.

Oh yeah right. That makes wondering why he chose the PS2 cover slightly more understandable aside from that likely being the cover more people saw of the owners of the game.

Yeah, he also tends to use the Gamecube or no specific console cover of Resident Evil 4 too, even mentioning the two by bringing up the doomed 5 Gamecube exclusives in an Extra Punctuation.

Ah, I didn't realise that Killer 7 was one of the Capcom Five. Kinda depressing that so many games were pretty much doomed to commercial failure (unless it became stupidly critically acclaimed like RE4) when only one was shit (and one ended up being so unsuccessful, it doesn't even got a wikipedia page)

Wait, no spit-take moments?
Erm...
Yahtzee, did you play the final boss?

I think Suda 51 needs an intervention...
