    Not trying to be snarky or anything, but why does Suda51 have such a well known name? It seems like his games tend to be very hit-or-miss most of the time, and kind of come across as juvenile. No offense or anything, just not my cup of tea. Am legit curious if tjetes something to Suda51 I'm missing.

    Yeah sometimes Suda is kinda juvenile like all the dick joke's in shadows of the damned,but the main character of said game is still pretty cool,I have enjoyed all his recent games ,if you haven't played Killer 7 I would recommend checking it out on gamecube or ps2 this is the title along with Flower,Sun,Rain on ps2(later ported to DS)that probably gave him his well known name status,kinda put him on the map.

    I've heard lots of great things about Killer7, but sadly missed that one back in the PS2 days. Honestly, I didn't mind all the dick jokes in SotD, as it seemed more of a silly parody of the super-cool-manly-man archetype then anything. Can't really say that about this game though, unless he's trying to be subtle about it. Don't think thats the case though.

    Well, what I like about Suda it's that he makes fun games even with all the pervy and juvenile jokes. I think it works because mostly these games aren't to be taken seriously but also have character development so that they are not one trick ponies. Also I may jump the gun but there aren't a lot of humor or ridiculous games done in this scale outside of this dev and platinum. So maybe that's also reason why it can be cared about. Most (not all) games want to be serious and not funny.

    Fair points. That sorta humour at face value isn't my sort of thing, but if thats what you like, and the game is fun (which some of his games really aren't), then yeah, I can understand the love Suda51 seems to get.

    Unfortunately, until you've played Killer7 it's hard to get a good idea of what, at his best, he's like. (And why so many of us continue to cut him so much slack.) Killer7's control scheme is bizarre (but you get used to it), but really it's just about the experience. This amazing world, a really intriguing narrative, some hilarious and intelligent (!) meta-commentary, and one of my all-time favourite video game endings. Maybe they'll HD remake it one day.

    This is the same way I feel about Kojima. I've tried several times to get into MGS games, but I can't do it. They just aren't good to me. They are exactly the type of games that I should be into, but I just can't play them.

    Different strokes n' all that. I've always loved the MGS series, but I did start playing them when I was pretty young, so I figure I got aclimatitized to the batshit crazy parts of it. Maybe its the same with Suda51.

    Again, he's the Tarantino of the gaming. He likes bad jokes and bad style and almost always style over substance.

    Enough for me..I´m buying it. And yes I´m curious about the gigolo mode :P
  • rainn'sgaydar - August 27, 2013 6:36 a.m.

    Did you have to say "feeling gross after completing a Gigolo mission" and follow that up immediately with "wishing it could have gone deeper" in the You'll Hate section? Or was that intentional? Either way, I had a small chuckle.
