    Not really digging the "jointed" art style. It reminds me of a flash. However, those mechanics look pretty interesting. Guess I'll throw it on wishlist and maybe pick it up when I'm in the mood to try something new.

    @MHWilliams Yeah, I didn't want to be that a-hole in the comments section who essentially screams "YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND!!!", but I did want to give readers a view of what's possible in Vanquish since Matt didn't go over it.

    Clearly, Matt is a filthy casual because he doesn't like what I like and doesn't understand the incredible depth only the most dedicated of nutcases can appreciate! :P

    Joking aside, here's a slightly different perspective on Vanquish. This game is a must buy IF you're the type of player who enjoys racking up high scores and learning advanced animation canceling techniques. Play it as a standard 3rd person shooter and you're bound to get bored or frustrated.

    Put all those techniques together, and this is how the game looks:

    If those videos above don't appeal to you, then don't waste your money. However, if you're looking for a game that has mechanics you sink your teeth into, Vanquish is a very solid choice.

    If "Vampire Killer" isn't in this, I'll be severely disappointed (not really).

    "We made this game completely on our own, with no input from Keiji Inafune or Comcept"


    Translation: THIS is the Might No.9 game you backers REALLY wanted.

    I'm actually more curious to know if anyone actually believed R* would actually hit the 2017 release window.

    I can understand the apprehension when it comes to backing projects on Kickstarter, but I think it's ridiculous to only remember the bad and completely ignore the good. Let's not forget Shovel Knight, Shadowrun Returns (+ expansions), Wasteland 2, The Banner Saga, Pillars of Eternity, Cosmic Star Heroine, and many other QUALITY games exist only because people were willing to take a leap of faith. Backers just need to understand it's GAMBLE, not an investment. At least, that's how I look at it when I back a project.

    Regarding Project Rap Rabbit: Sorry Nadia, while I love reading your writing, I honestly think you're over-analyzing the situation. You touched on it briefly, but I think the more likely reason Matsuura and Yano aren't getting funding is because nobody (or at least not enough people) gives a flying f*** about these type of games.

    @Wellman2nd Nah, he's just salty. If Sapkowski had opted for royalties based on sales rather than an up-front lump sum for the rights to the Witcher, there's no doubt he would've been singing the praises of CDPR's interpretation of his work.

    @Ralek Well...I guess we should the caveat that such games should also be GOOD, not just a ported version with gimped features.

    I know EA is all about creating realistic sports simulations, but good lord, the Switch is the perfect platform for an NBA Jam/NFL Blitz style game.
