More than Suda51's involvement, the thing that grabbed my attention most about Lollipop Chainsaw is the fact that WARNER BROS. IS PUBLISHING IT IN NORTH AMERICA. Not Atlus, or Capcom, or Konami, or Sega, or us, or Aksys, or NIS... no, WARNER BROS. And it looks like they're doing a pretty damned good job with it, too! But... it's Warner Bros.! I didn't even know they HAD a game studio, much less one that would publish Lollipop Chainsaw!
Mortal Kombat? They have neverrealm which does MK ever since Midway closed it's doors.
Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Phantasy Star Online 2 Sonic Generation, both the 3DS & PS3 version Tales of Graces f Tales of the Abyss for 3DS Tales of Xillia Anything Falcom related that Xseed releases. (Seriously can't wait for Sora no Kiseki SC, I'm loving the first game) Playstation Vita
I've been meaning to post here. I think my most anticipated game for awhile now has always been for a new Panzer Dragoon game. I love my Ys and Falcom, and I certainly love my Suikoden... but my true gaming love is Panzer Dragoon.
Recently, I was able to get a good price on a Xbox 360 Kinect, of which I like many were very wary about whether it was just something silly and gimmickish, or if it really did revolutionize motion gaming. So far, while it is not a perfect technology, I have really taken a shine to it. Of course it really depends on the games being developed for it, but of the ones I've played or am playing now, I think it's just absolutely amazingly fun, even if I look absolutely ridiculous waving my arms and kicking my legs at nothing... : )
Anyhow, I started playing Child of Eden, which is made by the same developer of Space Channel 5 and Rez. This game is more or less a sequel (or possibly a prequel even) to Rez, only prettier and with better music. It's a blast to play and like Rez, the gameplay is so very similar to Panzer Dragoon. I also have been playing Rise of Nightmares, which while disturbing at parts, reminds me of a fun House of the Dead experience, only far more immersive... The interesting thing is that it is free roaming to an extent and not on rails like many other Kinect games, like Eden and Gunstringer (which is also quite awesome) and requires you to turn your body to move the camera, shifting it to either your left, right or all the way around 360 degrees.
I kept saying to myself, man.... wouldn't it be cool if a Panzer Dragoon game were to come out with the gameplay of using your arms to target and shoot things like in Child of Eden, while rotating your camera 360 degrees simply by moving your body. It would totally work! So where is my Panzer Dragoon!?!?
And then I saw it... it is really happening. It may not be the same in name or in storyline, but it's all there, the original creator, the dragon and rider concept, the art style and seemingly the music as well, except this time the creator of Panzer Dragoon (and Phantom Dust, great game!) is at the helm of development as this is his own company, Groundling.
I want to play Project Draco SO badly right now... and it is supposed to be a XBLA title, so I'm hoping it will get released in the States too. Can't wait!
