"Lollipop, lollipop, oh lolly, lolly lolly, lollipop, lollipop…" …yeah, good luck getting that out of your head now .

Suda51 is a wacko. That dude is just plain loopy. And we love his loopiness. From the "twisted mind" (the trailer's words, not ours) that helped bring you Shadows of the Damned comes Lollipop Chainsaw . A sweet 'n sexy cheerleader grabs a big ass chainsaw, blurts out a couple ridiculous one-liners, and tears the invading undead a new one.

Prepare yourself.

I have no idea if this game is going to be any good. I have a lot of faith in the developers and writer/director James Gunn but who knows? However, I have to say, I always think I've seen it all when it comes to video games, and then something like this comes along and puts a smile on my face. Why? Not sure. Just because it's unabashed and over-the-top, I guess.

"Sex, Blood & Rock 'n Roll." Yeah, okay. Bring it.

Hell yes. This is a day 1 for sure, a preorder even. We need more Japanese craziness. Suda 51 is the man, I wanna be World55.

Zombies and cheerleaders and chainsaws, the ultimate unbeatable combination.

Ok, my anticipation for this game just got a huge boost. This sounds like it would be a plot for a Grindhouse-style movie (Hobo with a Shotgun.) Now 2012 seems so far away…

Dunno if I'll be getting this though, my calender and backlog of games is really starting to pile up. Never thought there'd be a time when there's more quality games than there is time to play them. This is both a good and bad thing.

This isn't going to be disc based right? Right? I can't imagine people paying $60 for this… whatever THIS is. Reminds me of that game about a homicidal teddy bear.

Yup, disc based. You are young and have been indoctrinated into the western automaton mindset of what a game should be so I'll let this one pass 🙂

This does not qualify as a disc worthy game. This should be up for $15 on the PSN which I would be fine with and wouldn't give it a second thought. If knowing the difference of worth between this and a game like Uncharted is indoctrinated… then so be it.

How do you have any clue what it should be? Have you seen gameplay? Seems to me that just because you don't like it, it should be ignored and relegated to the ranks of the downloadable.

It's a full 3D action title. Based on the peeks of combat seen here and the early details, of course it's a normal-sized game. The only difference between this and what we've seen of DMC is the style and character.

Try thinking about that for a second.

I never even ragged on the game at all. Chill you two. I just don't believe it should be a full $60 price tag. I guess it's illegal to have an opinion on this site anymore. Maybe you should calm yourself and think before typing Ben.

I stand by the fact that it doesn't SEEM (search seem if you aren't familiar with the word) to be worth a full price tag. It's an over used and saturated genre (Over the top Zombie slayer) but then again so are FPSs.

Don't lecture us, JMO, and don't pull this "can't have an opinion" holier than thou nonsense.

Saying you can't believe anybody would pay $60 for the game, and saying it should be downloadable at best, is of course an insult to the game. That's what you call "ragging" on it.

Secondly, I'm sick of – as World called them – the "indoctrinated" insulting every last Japanese-influenced game because it's not intensely dramatic and doesn't take itself seriously. You and others are the reason why such tongue-in-cheek fun is dying.

And oh yeah, passing judgment without knowing much about a game is just plain naive.

Im not indoctrinated because I think the game will be crap. I couldn't care less if a Japanese man or an American man the game, the point is this is a ridiculous idea for a game. What are you pushing 30? 40? now Ben. Don't you think you should probably mature a little bit and learn that not everyone is going to love the same things you do.

Please expand your vocabulary as well, it seems the only word you know is "Naive" I really wish you would try harder to insult me. You're just coming off as a douchebag right now. No matter how many thumbs up you get it doesn't validate a damn thing you say.

This game has the potential to be another Duke Nukem flop. Anything over the top doesn't work now-a-days and therefore I think it would do better in the Store. See those two words Ben? "I think" That would imply an opinion has taken place in case you weren't able to recognize one without those words in it.

all jmo said at first was he did not see people paying $60 for this game which is just his opinion by the way. he should be allowed to do that without getting lectured to about being self indoctrination and racism towards japanese gaming. sheesh.

I would have agreed that it was your opinion and be done with it but you mentioned Duke Nukem. That game was horrible and you said over the top? Seems you haven't played Shadows of the Damned made by the same creator. That game is over the top and has sold fairly well.

If it has the same type of humor as Shadows of the Damned then this game is surely a D1P for me. Definitely worth the $60 purchase.

JMO: I'm not arguing with a petulant child who won't even admit when he's clueless about the gaming industry, or even what veteran gamers are referring to.

When I say tongue-in-cheek, you have no idea what that means. When we say Japanese flair is different and is not meant to be taken seriously, and you respond by insinuating that Lollipop Chainsaw is only for teenagers and not for "mature gamers," you come across as a narrow, shallow, completely ignorant individual.

I know you believe all the other posters in this thread are just immature, sex-starved losers because they like the look of this game. And that, right there, proves your age. Lastly, there is no "I think" in your initial post. It's just an uninformed, judgmental mess.

By the way, the day someone like you lectures me on vocabulary is the day you pick up a freakin' book. Now shut it and do NOT post again unless you plan on apologizing.

Ah, you chose to pile on the insults rather than admit anything.

Makes it easy for me. Now you may leave. I'm sure you can find a home at one of the many forums where CHILDREN brag to other children about how much they know about everything.

HMMMMM, I've kind of noticed myself that JMO seemed to be changing his demeanor lately, by getting testy & sarcastic towards some of our other posters over the last few of weeks, but seems that today he took it way over the top.

Wonder if he's stopped all of his mellow toking to move up the gateway to some serious crank-y stuff?

I think these situations could all be rather easily avoided if we were all just a *little* less confrontal. More often than not the focus of these kind of "discussions" turn more into what we did or did not call each other and new ways of insulting the other more than actually discussing the topic.

It all started with him saying that this looks more like a low budget game than a full price boxed release. In itself a view I can relate to. None of us know if this indeed *is* going to be worthy of a full price release, so one view is just as legit as the other.

… But then the lecturing starts. I really, really think a less confrontal tone would be wise.

"This does not qualify as a disc worthy game."

That's a direct quote. That's one of several that had nothing to do with opinion, but a judgmental statement based on no knowledge of a game.

I will pounce on someone any day of the week for that, regardless of the game. I despise rash assumptions based on ignorance.

After the huge disappointment of Alice this year I have lost all will to predict anything regarding new games with sexy heroines as the main focus. If Alice did not pull it off then how the heck can this game be worth anything.

I shall read the reviews, and this game shall be bought if it achieve a metarating of 80+. Simple as that.
But damnit, we need a quality BABE game now!

Are you sure you're not talking about some other game?
