Exclusive title on the way
It seems to have become a trend for high-profile developers to lavish undying praise on the PlayStation 4, with the most salient example being Hideo Kojima's laconic love letter to our beloved black box. The fun doesn't stop there, though, as decidedly distinctive director Goichi Suda, a
Suda51 talks Lollipop Chainsaw, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and what "punk" means to his studio
There's crazy, and then there's Japanese studio Grasshopper Manufacture's particular brand of bonkers, which positively oozes from its upcoming title Lollipop Chainsaw. As the developer braces itself for the June release of its over-the-top teenage bubblegum...
Just most of it
Goichi "Suda51" Suda is a man known for doing his own thing. From otaku assassin Travis Touchdown in No More Heroes to the multiple personalities of Killer7's Harman Smith, Suda's characters have always been off the wall, and his latest creation, Lollipop Chainsaw's zombie-culling cheerleader Juliet Starling, is no...
We know virtually nothing about Grasshopper's Shadows Of The Damned, but we've had the game preordered for months now. How much more do you need to know beyond "Shinji Mikami" and "Suda51"? The game's even been scored by ex-Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka. Sure, we would have preferred the game to take a more psychological horror direction than the grindhouse style..
We're all over EA's Shadows Of The Damned

Unfortunately, the reality of the collaboration, Shadows Of The Damned, has done nothing but disappoint us. Maybe our expectations were too high, but it just looks really bland. Check..
It's hard to judge a game based on a 90-second trailer
It's probably something we shouldn't do in the first place. But it's hard to not be disappointed by the long-awaited announcement of Shinji Mikami and Suda51's "horror" project; officially announced this morning as Shadows Of The Damned. Perhaps it's a matter of expectation. Shinji Mikami (of Resident Evil fame) and Suda51 (of Killer7..
Aside from the PlayStation Network's Siren: Blood Curse, horror games have been a little tame this generation
Even the biggest new horror franchise, Dead Space, is markedly soft compared to some of the PS2's top horror titles. We're hoping that the EA published Suda51 and Shinji Mikami collaboration fixes that. News of a big Tokyo showing from EA broke over the weekend, leading us to speculate..
Suda51's (of No More Heroes fame) has just announced a new PlayStation Network title called Sine Mora

So, this bonkers Japanese promotion for the upcoming HD reboot of Suda51's No More Heroes, No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise, may feature ridiculous amounts of Japanese dialogue and a Japanese MMA star; but it also features gameplay
HD gameplay. Of No More Heroes. Rad.

Hands up if you played No More Heroes on the Wii
Good, hands up if you want to play No More Heroes on your PS3. Even better. Excellent news because it seems like HD ports of Wii games are something publisher Marvelous are looking into.
