【RED BAND】『MGSV THE PHANTOM PAIN』E3 2013 Trailer
Pretty excited for this, and glad they've kept it on current gen consoles as well because I'm not going to give Microsoft one cent for their new piece of ****, and I'm not enough of a Sony fan to want to pick up a brand new PS4 for just one game. So yeah, getting this on the 360. Glad to be getting a sequel to 3 and Peace Walker, my two favorite games in the MGS series, and glad to hear about all of the changes they're making to the gameplay. I'm not often fond of gore like this, but generally I think going into more taboo themes will be for the better as far as story telling goes. People complain about the change in Snake's voice actor a lot, but from what I heard I honestly think the new guy will be better and more believable.Killer is Dead 'E3 2013 Trailer' TRUE-HD QUALITY E3M13
Probably a bit lesser known but I'm hoping Suda and Grasshopper have become more popular by now. To be honest, while I had fun with both Shadows of the Damned and Lollipop Chainsaw, they were a bit disappointing when compared to both Killer7 and the No More Heroes games. SotD did have good atmosphere and some serious, but not quite enough for me and the game was pretty buggy. Lollipop Chainsaw was a fun hack n slash game, a bit different from NMH but still similar at the core, and was good for simply being a silly game, but I'd prefer Suda when he's got more serious storytelling in his games. Both suffered from being significantly shorter than the others, which were already a bit short to begin with.
I do have hope for this game. SotD seemed to have some references to Killer7 before it was released, which really made me think it was going to be a spiritual successor, but this is without a shadow of a doubt the true successor here. Much more artistic and abstract, which put Killer7 at the top of my list. That and there seem to be more connections to it as well...it almost seems as if Damon is an older version of Dan(is he even voiced by the same guy? He sounds really familiar, anyway), and Brian would be in a similar role to Garcian...of course when it comes to my interpretation of Killer7, Harman and Kun Lan were only symbols of Garcian's morality and he was actually the real "leader" of the Killer7, but everyone else has a different take on it so that has to be taken into account, too.
Then you have stuff like the moon, and the dark side of the moon supposedly being where some of these criminals hide out in. The moon was certainly significant in Killer7, but was not an actual part of the plot. Of course, there was an interview Suda had where he claimed he got the inspiration for this game from an old Japanese tv show where the characters were normal by day, and assassins by night, so I guess that's a pretty big part of it. I wonder if this stuff about every human having cyborg parts is also supposed to symbolize duality.
It doesn't all seem to be serious, though - there was a "Mondo girls" trailer a while ago that seemed as if it was almost stripped directly from No More Heroes. And the actual gameplay seems more similar to it than Lollipop Chainsaw was. Not that that is bad at all, really, though I guess I was one of the few who liked Killer7's gameplay a lot. Either way I'm still very excited for it.
