Feast your arse on the new trailer for Golden Axe: Beast Rider

I am still torn on this one. While my love for generic action games is well known (I don't care for faux-innovation, just give me a sword and some monsters), there's something about the brawler style action game I truly miss, and wish Golden Axe: Beast Rider would have brought back. Teaming up with a pal and smashing a bunch of cheap enemies before a little arrow says you can move on fills me with such frustrated joy.

This particular trailer looks to be trying just a mite too hard to appear epic, but it's never going to be Willow. Now Willow was one class film. A trailer can only provide so much, however. If the action is good enough, I won't care much whether or not it isn't a true brawler or how close to being as good as Willow the story is. I really want to watch Willow.
