I haven't played the game. Hell, I haven't even seen gameplay videos or anything.
But a screencap is all I need to really, really want this No More Heroes--if for nothing else, to drool over the brilliant artwork and graphics. There's something extremely appealing to me about it. Normally, I'm not really a big fan of cell-shaded 3D, but in No More Heroes is beautifully well-done. I think the reason would be that it isn't solid colours, but has detailed patterns and textures laid over top, giving it more depth and, well, texture.
I also appreciate it isn't cartoony in the way that, for example, LoZ: Wind Waker was (which was dissapointing to me, graohics-wise) but has an edgy, stylistic look that catches peoples' eye. I mean, come on.
How can you say no to that?! For a videogame character, I'd say that Travis Touchdown has it goin' on in the looks department. (ahem.) But it begs the question: where have you seen an otaku that looks like this?
(lol, amirite? amirite?)
Okay, so maybe I could tone down the gushing a bit but, as an artist myself I can appreciate these things, okay? And I hope you can too read
