A Better Look At No More Heroes 2 New Dual Beam Katana

Publisher Marvelous Entertainment has sent out "new" No More Heroes 2 screenshots. "New" because most of them showed up in a May issue of Japanese game mag Famitsu.

May is not new — it's an entire season ago. But those blurry magazine scans are blurry. The worst thing about blurry magazine scans? They're blurry.

Have a better look at the dual beam katana action in No More Heroes 2. While hero Travis Touchdown carried a single beam katana in the first NMH, but carries a dual beam in the second game. Double the fun. (And dead bad guys.)

I just hope they're putting tons of quality dev-time into this game. I've crapped on the first game, and my friend mentioned that the devs might be small, so just making the game was a challenge in itself. Well, now that they have the engine, most of their time can go directly into the game, so they don't have any excuses to fall back on with this sequel.

If you're wondering why "hardcore" Wii games don't sell, it's not because there are no hardcore Wii gamers, it's because we read reviews, and we also hear about games from friends. NMH is funny, and weird, but it completely lacks polish. The bosses and enemies are a snore-fest; just compare NMH bosses to your favorite AAA game like Zelda, MGS, or God of War. Notice some differences? Please, people, stop promoting NMH as the beaten down "awsome" game that noone bought. In my opinion, way too many people bought that game.
