    Can’t wait to play this. It will be awesome!

  • ndjn3979

    Looks to be a very well-made game.

    • 0:21 Sure she doesn’t have enough arms…..she would be a great house wife….joking ladies don’t be mad jk xD

      • Ferrick

        with that many hands, i’m sure she’s good with her hands =P

  • Glad there’s more than a sword, just hope there’s more than a handful of bosses. Max Anarchy had more than I could count

    • Max Anarchy only had 3 real bosses (4 if you include the barbot) the others were just playable characters with increased health.

    Okay, so the weapons will be used with the triangle button, and each one serves a different purpose. The polearm is extra range and crowd controlling, the Sai acts like a hook-shot and stun-weapon, and the pincer blades are… basically just gigantic tools for putting extra amounts of hurt on, since I didn’t see any other properties of them in there. It blows through shielded enemies, more or less. Decent set-up, I suppose.

    Also, that suit. Oh Platinum.

    I know it!!!!
    I won’t watch the video too much spoiler….
    damn Trailer these days…. -_-

    • z_merquise

      Yeah, I already decided to stop watching all of the recent trailers because they seem to reveal too much now. Better for me to just see them first in the game itself.

      But I guess they made these kind of stuff to attract more people like how many movie trailers were.

      • Nitraion

        -_- game like this doesn’t need a detailed trailer explaining all….
        the game might flop when you get it…unless its super long game…
        but action game doesn’t really that long…
        from the demo alone i can tell there is several weapons on this game…

      • Mar Mar
