Zero Punctuation discovers that we could use another hero (and a way home) in this week's review of Suda 51's No More Heroes. Rightful finger-pointing at Suda 51's pretentiousness starts the review, but it soon gets slashed away by Yahtzee's belief that No More Heroes does offer something "differe...

With the impending release of Smash Bros. Brawl, we've had franchises on the mind lately. This game is pretty much guaranteed to be the best cross-franchise game ever made, including tons of folk that normally wouldn't be anywhere near a first-party Nintendo game. Then, reader Chris sent in an ema...

None of the releases this week really appealed to us, just as they didn't appeal to any of you who bothered to comment. So, we figured we'd talk a bit about No More Heroes and the fact that the boss fight with the #2 ranked assassin is driving us crazy. Seriously, how cheap can you get? We'd go in...

It's no secret that we've had No More Heroes on the brain since the game's release a few short weeks back. We're doing our best to climb the UAA ranks, but that doesn't mean we don't have time to stop and smell the roses. Some of our time has been spent dumpster-diving for t-shirts and checking ou...

We know already that the European and Japanese versions of Suda51's No More Heroes are a tad less bloody than their American counterpart. But exactly how much blood are they missing out on? As the above comparison video shows, there's certainly a lot of blood in the American version that's absent...

Spoiler alert: This is the first boss fight in the game. If there's one thing we can't get enough of right now, it's No More Heroes. Suda's masterpiece (yeah, we went there) came in to our video game collection and proceeded to decapitate every single other game in its pursuit to be the top title o...

No More High-Definition Heroes was almost a reality, had Grasshopper Manufacture's Goichi Suda not been privy to some Wii whisperings during his project's planning stages. "Originally, I'd wanted to make this game for Xbox 360, actually," he told MCV. The No More Heroes designer, also known as "Su...

We can't really explain the parallels in our mind between Bomberman and Shaggy's "Boombastic." Something about the boom makes us think about bombs or something. We really can't understand why we're just so damn insane sometimes. Anywho, Bomberman Land is the only new game this week. For us, we're s...

And his name is Travis Touchdown. His moves are without equal. His ability to care for and nurture his small kitten Jeane shows the ladies he has a soft, emotional side. His Beam Katana shows his enemies that he means business. And his bike shows Santa Destroy that, on the road, he's just as much of...

This weekend will have many heroes. There will be the firefighter that saves a kitten from a tree. There will be the courteous driver who waves on another driver at a four-way stop. There will also be the middle-aged man who eats in his local diner alone, sad and contemplating suicide. How is he a h...

No More Heroes isn't even out on shelves yet outside of Japan, most of the reviews haven't even been published, and already director Goichi Suda wants a sequel. The punk-rock Killer 7 creator is already itching to create the next in this bizarre Wii-sclusive action series, despite publisher Ubisof...
