Check out Killer is Dead's PC specs

Killer is Dead is coming to Steam on May 23, so ready your PC for some hot Suda51 action. As disappointing as Killer is Dead was overall (this coming from a massive fan of Suda's other games) I'd probably be down to purchase ...

Exclusive: Suda 51's top 7 Killer is Dead moments photo
Exclusive: Suda 51's top 7 Killer is Dead moments
by Jonathan Holmes

Killer is Dead was a day one purchase for me, though from what I hear from my peers, a lot of consumers didn't have the confidence to pick it up upon initial release. With the gift giving holidays just around the corner, and all of your "must-have" games already safely in your possession, maybe this is just the kind of game you'd like to own but not pay for. 

Tempted to send your mom out to the local strip mall with instructions to ask the man at the counter to sell her one shiny new copy of Killer is Dead to stuff in your stocking? Check out Suda 51's spoiler-packed favorite moments and see if you're not convinced, and check out our contest for a signed copy of the game while you're at it.

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.

This Killer is Dead cosplay sure is mondo photo
This Killer is Dead cosplay sure is mondo
by Wesley Ruscher

If there was ever an upcoming week for epic cosplay it would be this week. PAX Prime in Seattle and, from what I'm told, the mecca of all cosplay destinations Dragoncon in Atlanta are sure to provide some amazing displays for weeks to come.

With that said, I'll be ditching the Dtoid family this week (going to miss one wild party for sure) as I brave a trip to Atlanta to witness (and capture with my new camera) some hopefully insanely brilliant cosplay. 

Enjoy this week's gallery. There are some fantastic cosplays old and new, a little Killer is Dead action, and even one our own Jim Sterling could get behind. 

Remember, if you have any spectacular cosplays you'd like to show off here make sure to send them in to tips@destructoid.com.

Until next time!

Review: Killer is Dead photo
Review: Killer is Dead
by Chris Carter

What do an assassin with multiple personality disorder, an otaku warrior, a foul-mouthed demon hunter, and a chainsaw-wielding cheerleader have in common? Why they're all creations from the legendary Suda 51 of course! For quite some time, Suda has been gracing us with some of the most interesting characters and worlds in all of gaming, despite the technical shortcomings of each title.

The newest assassin to join the pantheon of insanity is Mondo Zappa, but his contributions aren't quite up to par with his predecessors.

New releases: Killers everywhere photo
New releases: Killers everywhere
by Fraser Brown

I'll be spending this week playing catch up, but there's no dearth of new releases. Killer is Dead is tempting me, because bloody hell it looks flashy, but I'll probably leave until I'm not drowning in games. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is notable too, if only because it was originally a shockingly poor MMO and had to be entirely rebuilt. I've not been impressed with the results, and found myself sick of it after a weekend. Others seem to be getting more out of it, however.

Also on the docket this week, we've got Lost Planet 3, which is nice if you're sick of the summer heat; Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons comes to the PC, which pleases me greatly; and some burly American fellows kick a ball around in Madden NFL 25. There's more too, but you'll have to scroll down for that.

Anything floating your boat this week?

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 ...

Star Wars: Battlefront, Ellen Page, & Sexy Suda51

DICE is as excited about Star Wars: Battlefront as you are, Ellen Page is pissed about Ellie in The Last Of Us looking like her, Saints Row IV is too explicit for Australia, and Suda51 gives his stance on sexuality in Killer Is Dead. Adam Sessler fills in for Tara, and we talk about his fun panel with Jim Sterling, and how I'm a suicidal Pikachu.

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!
