I was kinda hesitant to create a new thread for this, because like Shadows of the Damned I wasn't sure if I would buy this Suda offering.
Like Shadows of the Damned one trailer convinced me to buy it anyway:

I am hyped as hell. This is basically what happens if you americanise a magical girl beyond recognition and then set her up against zombies with classical Suda humor. This will be awesome.

I was grinning like a dumbass the entire time the trailer was playing. I lost it at the thorax line.

At the very least it looks entertaining as hell. I'll be keeping tabs on this.

Totally on board for this. Lol, and if you preorder from Gamestop I belive, you get an alternate costume that dresses her up like Ash, lol.

Huzzah for power ups determined by a slot machine! Too bad I still don't have a "next gen", which are now actually current gen consoles, which can play this. Need to fix that.

Amusingly enough, I had 'Disturbed- Perfect Insanity' playing on my media player when that skins trailer started.

...it was oddly fitting. XD

Huh?

No, I meant that I'd play it there because it looks like a stupidly hilarious game.

Also, there are maybe like four weeaboos where I work, and you are sadly mistaken if you think I'm one of them.

In general the weeaboo levels of this forum are very low. Most people who use any Japanese words mixed in their speech are doing so entirely in jest or get mauled to death by Kotonoha. Most other weeaboo behavior is nonexistent.

Though my weeaboo level has totally spiked after going to Ohayocon. I need to find a way to lower that.

The act of browsing this site already puts you on the low end of the weaboo scale.

Spinach
February 11th, 2012, 12:27 PM
I don't think you know what an actual weeaboo acts like. You go to the back of the class.

I3uster
February 11th, 2012, 12:31 PM
It also depends on your definition, it's not exactly written down in the Merriam-Webster.

So let's use the internet equivalent to it, eh?

http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=weaboo

Fuck, I swear there was no qualifier.

Spinach
February 11th, 2012, 12:33 PM
Did you just win this argument for me? I'm not sure.


While the two terms are often fused together, weaboos are very different from anime fans or enthusiasts. A fan may be just as enthusiastic and knowlegable about Japanese culture, mainly anime (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=anime), but they neither boast about their knowledge nor call themselves otaku (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=otaku)(because of its known negative connatation).

NOPE.jpg

You have to meet a weeaboo in real life, and then you will never make this mistake again. You will probably vomit.

So yeah anyway, buying this game, playing at work, much lulz will ensue.

I agree with Buster: that trailer changed a lot about my attitude towards the game.

Not my finacial situation, though.

The chainsaw can apparently change into a chainsaw blaster (looks like a grenade launcher) and a chainsaw dash mode (has fuselages and can apparently be used as a pole vault). Second boss is a viking that creates lightning by smacking drums.

When I first saw a trailer for this game, I thought it was a lousy clash of visual styles: The dull, dirty, diseased zombies attacking a shiny, colorful, peppy girl, whose chainsaw turned their gibs (if not their blood) into sparkles and hearts.

But after seeing the deliberately-goth villain, I think this is part of the point.

It's not ramming a magical girl into the zombie horror genre and letting her run rampant over it, it's about a straight up clash between the two genres. The magical girl easily annihilates and overwrites the zombie horror because each individual zombie is too weak; their horror is diluted over all them, whereas she is the sole concentration of magical girliness.

It would take nothing less than a midboss to stand a chance of smudging or staining her outfit.

Hey, have you ever thought to your self "Well this game is cool, but if only I could dress the main character like she's in a mediocre manga/anime."
If so you are a very strange person. But you're welcome all the same.

Both an Army of Darkness ref (Besides the costume) and a Hokuto No Ken ref within the first 30 minutes.
