The Wonderful 101 is a frustrating game, a confusing maelstrom of aliens and superheroes that seems to punish players for all the wrong reasons.
I couldn't help myself from blurting out "Nice shoes!" when Hideki Kamiya stood up to shake my hand. Look at them. Is it any wonder why I had to give them props?
Sales of The Wonderful 101 in Japan are not very wonderful. According to 4Gamer, Platinum Games' latest sold only a little over 5,000 copies on its first day out in Japan, not even making the top 20, one week later. The Wonderful 101 arrives in the US on the 15th of this month. Hopefully it will fare better there.
If you follow Hideki Kamiya on Twitter, you might expect him to be an excitable, fast-talking conversationalist in person. He's pretty much the opposite.

Here's more of Platinum's Wii U superhero game The Wonderful 101 in action. I don't know what the hell is going on half the time, but I do know that I'd very much like to play this game.
Forget Mario. Don't worry about Donkey Kong. There are two Wii U games that will shape the console's future, and neither stars one of Nintendo's big mascots.
Platinum Games' swarm-of-super-heroes action game The Wonderful 101 will launch on the Wii U on September 15. We've liked what we've played, so this is good news!
Outspoken game director Hideki Kamiya's Tweet about prioritizing fun over game length have stirred enough of a response to provoke a follow-up from his long-time producer.
