It's out this week, who else is getting it? This looks like the kinda game the Wii needs, but then I was a fan of Killer7 so this had my interest from the minute I heard of its existence.

Unless it gets phenomenal reviews it's a long rental for me. It's very hard to justify $50 for a game these days, especially if I'm only going to play it once. I am looking forward to playing it, I just don't think I'll end up buying it.

It seems meaty enough to purchase to me an anyway it's one of those niche games that needs those sales, but I can see why you'd rather just rent it. Anyways, for those that care 4 color rebellion has a review up.

If reviews are good, this might be the game that tips me into a Wii purchase.

Hell yeah I am. The man in my avatar is the main character, Travis Touchdown. I've been looking forward to this for a long time, since it was first unveiled. I'm stoked it's for Wii as well. Despite its non-existent sales in Japan, I'm hopeful that it will sell a lot better here.

When I looked earlier today, its average on metacritic was 90 - pretty great, even though there were only 4 reviews.  I watched a video review and liked the way they made the whole lightsaber thing work (there's a cap on the end that extends out on a rod rather than just a beam of hard light that extends an arbitrary distance).  Oh, and the game looked pretty fun, too. :D

I'm gonna pick it up sometime shortly.  Maybe when I can find it used.  I never like spending too much on an action game.

9.0 from GameSpot. Take that as you will.

Well, I guess Kevin Van Ord isn't getting fired!

I miss when GameSpot had a good reputation, I have no idea if he really feels that way or not. :(

In fact, I think Ubi Soft's one of those that would seriously pressure for good reviews, look at how they blackballed Ziff Davis over bad Assassin's Creed reviews (or probably just review, hello there 4.0!)

I picked it up yesterday.  Being a huge fan of Killer7 AND Contact, I am totally loving No More Heroes.  

The open world portion of the game doesn't bother me at all, like the reviews I've read suggested it would.  The trips you make are extremely short, and Travis' bike looks awesome... it's just "cool".

The gameplay makes you feel like you're the shit.

Anyway, having grown up subscribing to punk beliefs/styles, I may be kind of a sucker here, but Killer7 and Contact sold me on their own merits, so I feel grasshopper's "punk video game band" vibe completely.  You will find similarities between all three games, which is a good thing in my opinion.  I hope they continue making games like this.

Meh, I really detested Killer 7, and I sold my Wii. So I'm not gonna get this and I can't get this even if I wanted to.

Me, I'm kinda the anti-punk... growing up on a heavy dose of classical music, fusion jazz, metal, and progrock. You could say I'm very pro-establishment... just not the one we've had during my lifetime.

So that being said, No More Heros isn't looking like my kinda thing.

It's a lot more coherent than Killer7 (doesn't take much), if that's what you didn't like.

Prime Mover, the music you're listing actually fits you into this definition of "punk".  Without going too far into this subject, all it implies is wild originality.  I'd post a quote from Bad Religion's frontman about how a punk can be anyone from a street urching to a college professor, but apparently he really is a college professor now and that fact is clouding my search results :P

No More Heroe's doesn't treat "punk" like a fad.  If that is what you're thinking, don't let that dissuade you.  Tchaikovsky 4 seasons was in my cd collection as a boy too.  The point is that the majority opinion at my school was that classical music was 'gay'.

Bleh.  I think I'm digging myself a hole.  Time to let someone actually comment on the gameplay :P

Seriously, No More Heroes is just about the only appealing thing to me for the Wii. There are some other games that look fun, but they aren't motivating factors. In order for me to purchase a Wii (or any console, really) it needs to have at least three games that I'm drooling over. Currently the Wii has ONE. :P But hey, if Grasshopper and Suda 51 keep putting out Wii titles now, I'll have to purchase one! ;)
