PAX East – Lollipop, Lollipop…Chainsaw Cuts Up Limbs Galore

by Jake ValentineApril 9, 2012


One of the surprises of the show was the line for Lollipop Chainsaw, something I personally wasn’t expecting to see. Then again, this is the latest title from Goichi Suda.

We didn’t get much time to spend with the button masher, but we were sure to rip up plenty of zombies while we had our chance. Sadly, this meant we weren’t able to see any of the story in action, but we had some glimpses, specifically the fact that your boyfriend’s head is always at your side. I’m glad to see that things are still a bit crazy in Suda land and I’m quite interested to see where that goes; I hear the love story between the characters is worth paying attention to.

But enough about love and romance. This is a game about being Juliet, the most popular girl in school, the captain of the cheerleaders, and the one heroine determined to rip through zombies galore.  Veterans of button mashers will feel right at home with the game’s control scheme and I was quickly able to jump over and around incoming waves of zombies, stunning them with my kicks, and simultaneously decapitating three or four at a time, earning more points and gaining power for special attacks.

Those who love violence and action will feel right at home here. Even in the demo’s early state, which appeared to be a very early version of the game, Juliet handled quite well with no major hiccups, something that is quite handy when dealing with numerous enemies on screen. I wish I could say the same about the visuals, but they were lacking polish. Hopefully this issue has long been remedied, as the game is due out in just a few months. One could argue that the game has a Grindhouse type style to it, but when you juxtapose it with music composed by Mindless Self Indulgence frontman Jimmy Urine, it just doesn’t work and I’m left expecting bright and shiny colors.

There’s a lot I’m looking forward to with Lollipop Chainsaw. I’m excited for the music, excited for the over the top gameplay, and excited for the Suda style craziness that will undoubtedly ensue. I do hope that the game won’t overstay its welcome in a way that, say, Madworld did. Should the title find a way to stay fresh through the course of its campaign, I see no reason why it wouldn’t be worth your time.

    This year has elapsed underneath the signal of Kinect. Microsoft is organizing several new games that use motion and vote. Not just for youngsters and families, but also for so-called. hardcore gamers.

    If you search at Microsoft’s publishing strategies and review them with what Sony is plotting, you get the impression that the Redmond large forgive the video video game market. “Throughout the year, only 3 electrical power exclusive’y?” (Exclusive to the game, which is printed in a solitary platform – ed) – can holler loud players who purchased the Xbox 360, believing that this is a much better selection than PlayStation 3 But practically nothing is certain, since this 12 months finally has the likely to be employed Kinect, a device which has by now pinned patch “toys”, and which has a considerably larger aspirations.

    Before heading to the Kinect games, lets mention the 3 exclusives, which will be operated traditionally, utilizing pads.

    The 1st is the “Gears of War 3, the previous in a trilogy of shooters unbelievably impressive,” about the battle of folks with nasty Locustami (called the “locust” implies the locusts). Again, we offer you a persuasive single-player campaign, as properly as substantial multiplayer mode. Its initial was to consider spot in March, but will be held till the autumn.

    Gears of War 3

    In the very same period of time will be the 2nd of the titles are meant exclusively for the Xbox – Forza Motorsport 4 “, a thing for followers of the 4 wheels and substantial speed. This driving simulator, which – as the creators promise – is to be the most practical video game of its variety in history. It is really worth mentioning that it will exploit the Kinecta.

    The 3rd year’s distinctive to Microsoft’s console is by much the most mysterious. It’s “Kingdoms”, the video game announced by the studio Crytek (Far Cry, “” Crysis “) at E3 in June very last year. Until today, nobody is aware what exactly is to be and when to appear. However, we imagine that it is able to launch this year.

    If you like to perform only on the crash, and entertaining with Kinecta scares you … This primarily would be enough. But if you want to try something new, you really should appear at these titles:

    “Project Draco” – creation by Yukio Futatsugiego, the father of the series, “Panzer Dragoon,” inspired by Taze. Will sit on the back again of a dragon, and Consider to the skies, where stoczymy flying combat with numerous enemies.

    “Star Wars Kinect” – the 1st sport in the universe of “Star Wars” in which we could wave a lightsaber and use Jedi powers, nearly without holding anything at all in his fingers (you will be prepared to probably be able to buy an imitation sword, to come to feel like Luke Skywalker) . Release Date: Christmas 2011

    “Codename D” – a secret project, is functioning on Goichi Suda and his group Grasshopper (creator of “killer7″, “No More Heroes” and “Shadows of the Damned”). We know about him only that it is intended mainly for “hardcore” players.

    “Rise of the Nightmares” – a video game of survival horror, ready by the organization SEGA. There is for now much too significantly details about it, but the identical species tends to make it intriguing.

    “Steel Battalion: Large Armor – continued in 2002 issued a robot battle simulator. This time we have an possibility posterować it employing their own movements. The recreation will be held in 2082 years, the United States.

    Of course, the above-mentioned game titles are the very same exclusive’y Xbox machines. Besides them, waiting around for you lot this yr Prime Minister multiplatformowych, among which there will be likely hits these kinds of as:

    * “Dead Space 2″ (January)
    * “Bulletstorm” (February)
    * Crysis 2 “(March)
    * “Portal 2″ (April)
    * “Shift 2: Unleashed” (second quarter)
    * “Deus Ex: Human Revolution” (first 50 % year)
    * “Rage” (September)
    * “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” (November)
    * “Shadows of the Damned” (Autumn)
    * “Mass Influence 3 (fourth quarter)

    Bulletstorm

    There is consequently no explanation to complain. This 12 months must be for proprietors of Xbox machines as exciting as the favored display on TVN-ie. Chart will be in abundance, and for that we will carefully observe the development of Kinecta and making use of it to games. The coming months will give us an answer, is it genuinely as big a revolution as preached Microsoft.

    I had created a 9gag submit some weeks in the past that obtained 680+ votes, but by no means made it to Trending, even though I see posts get there with only 100-200 votes. It appears that the range of votes is not the only thing that counts… What’s likely on, and what is the criterion for which a posts gets to Trending or not?

    I’m a retail employee. I was watching a customer and watched them shoplift an item from the store. I waited for the person to leave the store before I confronted them. Once outside the store I asked the person if he/she would like to pay for the item and when he/she denied taking anything, I asked if I could check his/her bags. I touched his/her flowers completely forgetting that it’s a no-no to touch a customers belongings. Is the person able to take legal action against me for touching his/her belongings or defamation? Can he/she claim defamation/humiliation due to the conversation being overheard? I did not mention the term “steal” or any words relating to it. She also came into the pharmacy to completely empty her bags on to the counter and he/she was throwing it all over the place so some items I had to stop from dropping on the ground etc. She was also very upset and crying. In the end I was unable to see the shoplifted item and she left the store.

    I read Germany is suffering and a newly appointed female bishop has resigned, news goes like this:
    She came under fire for bungling the case of a pastor accused of abusing young boys and girls in the 1970s and 1980s. She reportedly knew for several years about the case but failed to act.
    How many people take action when it was reported a woman was murdered because she took action.
    Are there statistics showing reports and a success rate dealing with abusers?
    Thanks snow, which authority deals with this kind of thing and is free of abusers?

  • baldy eire

    I understand that Cornell has an early decision plan, but does it also have an early action plan? If I get accepted to a school through early action do I have to give them an immediate response right away? Can I wait and apply to another school like Harvard and get their decision before deciding on a final selection? Thank you.

    My husband and I had a newborn baby which we were told had no claims against him and that all relatives had turned the baby down. We had him only one week when the court was petitioned by the aunt and uncle for custody. They were awarded visitation. Our agency provides a neutral meeting place for us because of our contractual agreement.Their attorney gave them our phone number and address even though we are listed as confidentilal parties on the legal documents.

    We filed a complaint with the Bar Association but I need to know if there is any other action I can take against the attorney? The aunt has called me twice already.. I relinquished the baby to the agency for our own safety. She had no excuse as to why she would give our address to the relatives thus thwarting our hopes to adopt. The father has a bench warrant for his arrest for a former ticket.

    I’ve already filed a complaint to the Bar Association but was wondering if anyone knew what else I could do. Thank you

    Exactly that. Define social and behavioral postures with respect to affirmative action. I honestly can’t think of any examples. Is affirmative action viewed differently now than it used to be when it first came into play in 1965?

  • liza

    If you are one, or support the “movement”, what action could the government take specifically that would make the OWS people say “okay, that is what we are looking for , we don’t need to squat in streets and parks anymore…” ? If there is nothing to be done that would satisfy them, are they not simply disillusioned citizens compaining about everything, and nothing ?

  • apleaforbrandon

    I’ve been running a business for years now and someone has started up right on my doorstep using my name and offering the same services! I’ve already had complaints sent to me meant for them and they are illegally flyposting adverts all over town, getting me a bad name.

    What action can i take considering it’s a name i have used for many years? It is a brand name, not my own name so they shouldn’t be using it.

    The Syrian regime has turned on it’s own population using tanks against it’s cities and shooting many hundreds of unarmed protestors. Thousands more have disappeared or been tortured. What action should the international community take against such a rogue regime ?

    What are the pros?
    What are the cons of not having affirmative action?
