Liberation Maiden Sin looks gorgeous in latest trailer

Liberation Maiden Sin is unfairly pretty. The follow-up to Grasshopper Manufacture's Nintendo 3DS shoot-'em-up is descending on Japan come December 5. Unfortunately, it's a visual novel, which all but ensures the PlayStation 3 exclusive won't see a release on Western shores.

Do want: PS4 title Lily Bergamo is the newest from Suda51

Killer is Dead's Suda51 took the stage at Sony's press conference in Japan to announce a new PS4 game, Lily Bergamo. It's apparently an action game -- "extreme action" and "supreme action" -- but little was shown outside...

Killer is Disappointed: Gigolo missions & token weirdism
by Steven Hansen

I really like Killer is Dead. I want to like it more, but I’m increasingly unsure if I should. Unfortunately, the awful Gigolo missions are a big part of planting the seed of distrust in my mind.

Hah! I bet you thought you’d avoided a tirade on why Killer is Dead’s Gigolo missions are the worst thing since Reaganomics when Chris Carter only mentioned them in passing in his review. Allow me to Killer is Shed some light on the problem.

by Chris Carter

Killer is Dead's hero Mondo Zappa has a pretty hard life! In-between traveling the world in search of love, he has to kill countless creatures, humans, and even face his own nightmares on a regular basis.

As such, it can be pretty helpful to have a few allies outside of the Bryan Execution Firm, so here are some basic tips to get your started.

Killer is Dead launches to tepid sales in Japan

Mainstream success has largely eluded Grasshopper Manufacture. Despite giving birth to beloved properties like No More Heroes, the studio has had trouble garnering much of an audience outside of a devout cult following all to...

Okay Killer Is Dead, enough is enough

Hey Suda 51, you're great. I love your games. Killer Is Dead looks like it will be a lot of fun. But enough is enough! There's promotion, and then there's just spoiling every single little aspect of your game. We've seen so ...

Killer Is Dead features both Japanese and English voices

Yes! Killer Is Dead will feature both Japanese and English voiceover options. This is something I was hoping for forever, as I much prefer the Japanese voice actors over the English ones. As for the English voice cast, you c...

Killer Is Dead trailer shows fight with King Quasi-Naked

Here's a new trailer for Killer Is Dead. It's got some really good music, a load of talking in Japanese, and a boss battle showcase against a man who wears very little clothing and appears to wear a crown. Henceforth, I dub him King Quasi-Naked. For those who don't want to spoil the weirdness, I must urge once more that this video may give away too much for you. View with caution!

Killer Is Dead trailer ... well, there are boobs  photo
Killer Is Dead trailer ... well, there are boobs
by Jim Sterling

Here is a new trailer for Killer Is Dead. If my intuition is correct, the underlying message of the video is that women have breasts. This startling revelation may representing a bold step forward for the field of human biology. I've forwarded these findings to New Scientist magazine.

Killer Is Dead features Gigolo Missions in which you must seduce women. Why? Because Suda51 is involved with this game, is why. 

Trailers with sexy women in them are no less cliche than game boxes featuring generic gruff soldiers with guns. It's just not very original. Lacking originality is quite a feat for a game that's showing us nurses riding giant floating syringes and suited men with giant robot arms running on the Moon. 

Show us more of that stuff, Grasshopper. We can get boobs anywhere. We can only get magic carpet syringes from you.

Report: Liberation Maiden to get sequel on PlayStation 3

Liberation Maiden is getting a sequel! Well, sort of. It seems like Grasshopper Manufacture has decided to eschew Shoko's roots, following up last year's 3DS shooter with a visual novel for PlayStation 3. According to Si...
