    If you don't want to watch the whole Direct, just view the short er, 7 minute trailer.



    This looks really good, guess the Wii U will finally be getting some use.

    Now this actually looks interesting. Maybe not a system seller, but something worth purchasing.

    After a trailer like that, I'd be surprised if this game doesn't move the Wii U. This game is GOTY material.

    It's a quirky little title from Platinum Games. It'll be lucky if it can move lint on the store shelves.

    That being said, this is certainly looking like some kind of Wonderful.

    Yeah... it definitely isn't GOTY material. Especially when compared to games like The Last of Us, Tomb Raider, and (ew) BioShock Infinite upon many others, no.
    It's a shame, PG make wonderful games. They offer a lot of fun and just mindless action which is easy to jump into, but they don't sell a whole lot. I wish they did so they could actually get some of the attention that they deserve.
    The demo to me felt like one of those things that needs to be played over and over until I fully get it. The instructions/tutorials were garbage that much is for sure.

    I fully got it 1st play through. if all you do is go around button mashing robots and shit than this will get boring for me very quickly.
