Unskippable: Killer is Dead

Killer is Dead

Somehow, I think the Moon is behind all this killing.

I was also so sure the hand would move!

Wow, congratulations on getting an A for walking.

He worked hard for it. That was a truly menacing stroll, slow and deliberate like a hunting tiger, and he didn't even let the time he walked into a dumpster throw him off. A masterful display of locomotion.

This is why you should shoot anyone who can block bullets multiple times. Fill them full of enough lead that they're too heavy to move.

Having a colour-changing moon must be useful when filling in the paperwork. "What colour soul did the target have?" "Well that's easy, I'll just stick my head out the window and GODDAMNIT IT'S DAYTIME!"

Not a single Slender Man reference? Because Slendy was my first thought at seeing that shadow...

Also, haven't you seen Wolverine-Origins? (I wouldn't blame you if the answer is 'No'.) Katanas can't just block bullets, they can cut through and redirect them.

This game is really desperate to make the player feel special, tossing out scores like that.

Didn't Mythbusters prove that you CAN deflect a bullet with a sword? I distincly remember them testing that even a butterknife can cut a bullet. Or maybe it's cutting bullets, but deflecting them was busted? Anyone?

Yeah. Thanks for the vid, guys. Now I don't need to consult Gamefaqs anymore.

I think I see the next GPLP after Dark!

just like splinter cell whitelist, farmer is harvested sounds at least like a solid horror short

Why didn't he shoot the feet?
In GunZ online (where you CAN block bullets with a Katana) that's where you fire if someone's excessively turtling.
Also, stops him walking.

Mike Patton's much skinnier than last I remember.

The one thing I keep thinking when looking at this game is: "Boy, Cellshading sure does make games beautiful!"
Makes me wonder why more games don't make use of it. In a way, it immortalises a games graphics. Just take a look at Wind Waker or Okami and see how well those aged!

"Aaaaaand his hand moves."

That's the kind of MST reference I appreciate, guys. Kudos.

Paul, I totally lost it when you said "I keep it in my butt!" Nothing can top that. Except for that shadow song. Catchy tune.

They did it for swords and arrows. They busted the myths that a sword can cut another sword or a gun barrel. They also showed that you could hit two targets at once by splitting the bullet on an axe blade. Another bust was for human reflexes being fast enough to catch a flying bullet.

What could this guy need to upgrade? He can already block bullets with his katana and doesn't seem to particularly mind his brain exploding. Sure, he probably needs money for a new couch or something, but that powerup seems like a waste on him. Maybe the moon has always wanted to be fabulous and now can be.

I wish more games would use it as well. I'm struggling to think of many that I've played, but the ones I have have some of the best art styles I've seen. My guess as to why no one tends to use it would be because publishers assume everyone thinks of more stylized as childish (as I joked above) but I doubt its as true as they assume.

Sure he can stop bullets with his sword, but he can't punch through a wall without an awesome robo-drill-fist!

Agreed. It just makes me sad when I think about it. I mean, I would say a game like Killer is Dead is far from childish.
I'm predicting that ten years from now this game will still look amazing due to it's cell shading.
It's too bad that publishers, as you said, don't realise this.

This game had a whole lot of style and awesomeness. The poor budget and the cheap sexism ruined what could've been a great product.

Well, with the acceleration he confers to the hefty chunk of steel that makes up a sword, he must still be immensely strong.

THE QUICKENING! IT OVERPOWERS ME!!!!!

He lacks the upgrade to see why kids love Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
