Sweet video preview for upcoming game Shadows of the Damned

By: iorilamia May 13, 2011 | 217 Views | 2 Comments

Destructoid has taken the pleasure in creating a great video preview for Grasshopper Manufacture's upcoming game.

For the longest time all we have gotten form this game are screenshots, a few details and the videos were always short and didn't clearly show the feel of the game. Luckily over at Destructoid.com , they got to play through the first couple of levels, and created a nice video preview for all of us curious cats. Seeing this has definitely got me more interested in the game. Check out the vid below and tell us what you think. Is this something you would buy or maybe try out?

Details on No More Heroes: Red Zone Edition

By: iorilamia May 13, 2011 | 792 Views | 6 Comments

A new No More Heroes game...but doesn't really include new stuff. One of those hybrid 1.5 types of things.

No More Heroes is probably my favorite Wii game, and the most ridiculous story I've ever played. Unfortunately when NMH2 came around, my fan-boy hype sort of died down, and bonus didn't care for the PS3 version with Move.

But what slightly caught my intrest again was No More Heroes : Red Zone Edition. This is NMH 1 with "Z Rating" which is like, super adult content in Japan, 5 bosses from NMH2, 10 missions left out of the Wii version, Online rankings and A boss battle mode (Which I was so depressed the first one didn't have) , ps move compatible and "Forbidden View Mode" which seems like looking at the women in the game...naked.

Being a huge fan of the first one, this is exciting. I may go out and buy the second one cheap and used to get back into it. The only downside is that the game in Japan is Yen 3990, which is about $42, but a lot of time the games are more expensive after sent to the U.S and not a direct conversion of pricing. the game is to be released July 21. Any No More Heroes Fans here at Gouki? Or peple who were intrested but didn't have a Wii and didn't want to buy the PS3 port? I see this as a 1.5 version, leave a comment on what you think about the series and this upcoming release :D

Shadows of the Damned Pre-Order isn't as crazy as you may think

By: iorilamia May 11, 2011 | 415 Views | 6 Comments

Crazy games usually have crazy pre-order deals right? Not this time. But two great composers coming together sounds promising.

Shadows of the Damned, the upcoming psycho-train game from Suda51 and Mikami. Pre-order deals have been announced but it feels a bit lacking. Pre-ordering from Amazon, EA or Gamestop gets you a CD with 12 tracks from the game. Cool right? Well you don't get a physical CD...it's digital download. That part kind of set me off, actually receiving a CD feels so much better, but I guess going digital saves them a lot of money. If you enjoyed the music of silent hill, Akira Yamaoka also helped put this Original Soundtrack together, working a long side with the band "The Damned"

Here's the track listings:

1. Theme of Shadows of the Damned (featuring the English gothic punk band, The Damned)
2. Shedding Stars
3. Walk if Off
4. Last Stop, Windows Up
5. This Way Comes
6. Fathomer
7. Smile for a Broken Dawn
8. Showdown at High Moon
9. Cold Turkey
10. Broken Bones, Broken Promises
11. Dropped Off Between Stops
12. Clawing at the Veil

A little History. The Damned are a British punk rock band from the 70's. Apparently the first punk rock band in the UK to hit top music charts and then tour in America. That's cool and all but the best part is how badass nice the lead singer, Dave Vanian, looks. 

 

How does receiving a digital CD feel towards a real one? Limitation's are sort of a bummer. Is this enough to make you pre-order a game that only has a few trailers? Or knowing the masterminds behind it make that ok? Tell us what you think in comments below, don't be a jimmy.

Shadows of The Damned GDC Trailer is Insane

By: iorilamia Mar 24, 2011 | 353 Views | 11 Comments

Suda51, I love you.

Shadows of the Damned is a survival horror game coming out this June. I haven't been following it much but I'm glad it got my attention. 2 big names behind this game are No more Heroes Suda 51 and Resident Evil's Shinji Mikami.

I'm not too much of a RE fan but NMH is definately something I will love for a very long time. But knowing how badass Resident games have been and Sudas other wacky projects, this game is sure to be promising. Enjoy the video below and leave a comment.

Taken from offical website below - 

"When evil demonic creatures kidnap Garcia’s girlfriend, it’s up to him to travel to the City of the Damned to get her back.  Aided by a former demon with the ability to transform into an array of vicious weapons, Garcia will once again take on the mantel of “demon hunter” and rip apart the horrifying forces of the underworld to protect what he loves most"
