    This game has 40/40 from Famistu, 10/10 from Edge UK, and 10/10 from Eurogamer.
    Been playing it about an hour now and can see why it's getting rave reviews.

    It's wave 3 too btw [​IMG]

    I've always looked at this and thought it'd just be a generic action game, what's the big deal.
    The reviews are making me curious. The fact my friend rarely a game and is stoaked for this is making me curious. And I love big ol' leaks so what the hell.

    I think this was the first Japanese game to break out of the less notable releases for the 360 updates (speaking of which I will probably do another for this, the homebrew developments could certainly warrant a post).

    Back on topic I reckon I will be seeing this in the next day or so, I probably would have grabbed it were it to be have region free when it was released in Japan.

    USA, that big island near Cuba
    Since I'm a self-proclaimed idiot lemme check something.
    I know this is Region Free but will it run on my American TV since it's PAL?
    I never really understood how all that worked... [​IMG]

    I'm not finding it at all surprising it is Wave 3. The game was finished back in October and it was supposed to have a simultaneous release with the English version but thanks to Modern Warfare 2 it was held off...and since it was already done BEFORE the 4th Wave appeared it didn't get Wave 4...

    But I will be downloading it and trying this out. [​IMG] I saw a stream of someone playing it a while back and it looks mad crazy. Gonna give this a go.

    I don't have an HDTV so I dunno how it's supposed to appear, but the action gets so frantic and zoomed out it can get really difficult at times to tell what the hell is going on. And I can't stand the cutscenes either. For the slow boring conversations it's just a regular cutscene, but as soon as the action scenes start it turns into an illustrated storyboard.

    But I am liking what I've played so far. [​IMG]

    @ganons 1.5 is not wave 3 compliant but 1.51 and 1.6 are though.
    To answer the next question if you have a drive that would have required a specialist method to dump keys know that it is not necessary if you have already flashed.
    As others mentioned no retail release means no way to verify but SWAG are a long running group with few nukes to their name (and mostly nukes for dupe releases at that).

    @Blue Zoidberg region free is region free as far as releases go.
    PAL and NTSC are hangovers from 50 years ago (EU AC power is 50Hz and US AC is 60Hz) but as they correlate to regions the labels have stuck.
    As far as your TV goes then yes NTSC TVs often have problems with PAL video (not the other way around though) but if it is of the "HD" variety (and you play your 360 with cables as such) then you should be OK as that was one of the things a shift to HD was supposed to eliminate (although for reasons unknown interlacing still exists).

    @Gaisuto buy a VGA cable man.

    Oh and I can not believe I forgot this first time around, NFO

    I do have a VGA Cable but nothing to plug it into lol. I don't have an HDTV or a monitor that I can use it with. Too bad this laptop's VGA is only out, I'd love to use this screen...

    Made it to Chapter 3 before taking a break. I take more damage using my "special moves" more then just mashing Y and B. [​IMG]

    I just hit chapter 7 today and the time on my save file is 6hrs 13mins.
    Great game is all I can say, once you get a few more weapons and open up the other transformations, you can do some crazy combos and the fluidity is amazing. It's all about nailing the RT dodge and counter in Witch Time.

    The story is cheesy, kinda reminds me of God Hand on PS2, very tongue-in-cheek. After playing 100s of games that are oh-so-serious, it's really nice to play something like this, uber over the top in your face action that mocks every other game in the genre, and also betters them.

    DMC5 is really gonna have to bring it because Bayonetta trounces DMC4 and then some. I don't think a GoW comparison is as relevant as the combat in that game is nowhere near as fast or exotic as Bayonetta or DMC.

    Overall, so far, without even finishing it I would rate this game 9/10
