Two new No More Heroes clips (sponsored by TAMPAX Pearl)

7:50 PM on 12.02.2007 // Earnest Cavalli

The clips we've seen in the past from Suda51's No More Heroes have all been tiny snippets rife with hip surreality and stylized everything, but they haven't really shown us much of the game. The denizens of the 'net are happy to get excited over anything, so lack of meaningful content up until now hasn't mattered much. Thankfully though, with the above clip we finally get a bit of what catchphrase-spouting undergrads all over the country would call "a bit of the old ultra-violence."

Normally it takes more than just arterial spray to get my knickers inflamed, but when you combine more blood than Sissy Spacek left on the floor of that shower in 1976 with Suda51's charming wrestling-meets-The-Matrix-meets-the-GHB-crowd style you get gameplay footage that looks simultaneously thrilling, visceral and sorta icky.

I'd be giddy as a drunk schoolgirl if the gameplay was as entertaining as the above clip, but short of adding a dongle to the Wiimote that microwaves a plate of nachos will giving you a hummer, I'm left thinking it can't possibly enthrall a player to that degree.

Hit the jump for footage of the title's intro. 

A few things I like about this intro:

First, that tune the hero whistles while walking down the stairs is the exact same tune I whistle while walking down the stairs!

Second, I respect the man's choice of transportation. It looks like he watched Akira repeatedly as a child and tried to build a replica of Kaneda's bike out of milk cartons, old shoes and things left behind by the last Katamari ball that happened to roll too close to his home. If I was the sort to build replica motorcycles based on the possessions of fictional characters I would hope my effort was half as adorably inept as his.

Finally, once the voice over kicks in, the whole thing acquires a feel similar to what would happen if John Favreau remade Cowboy Bebop with an Executive Producer credit being handed to Quentin Tarantino. It oozes neo-cool, subtle drug use, and pseudo-futuristic, Stephensonian hipness and short of including a scantily clad woman with reflective lenses grafted over her eyeballs, they couldn't have done a better job of appealing to the demographic that masturbates to words like "credstick," "Metaverse," and "street samurai" as often as they do to attractive women, men, combinations of the two, animals, incest fan-fiction, old-on-young lesbianism or the remembered sensation of a particularly rough piece of Velcro.

After a long struggle, I seem to have landed in a dream job. It's very exciting and nerve wracking, but I'm happy with where I ended up.

REMEMBER: Persona 4 Arena Ultimax is on PS+ for PS3! For PS3/PS4 owners like me who have barely used their PS3's since the PS4, remember that Sony still supports it!

So uh... I didn't know Nordic was handing out free upgrades of Darksiders 2 Dethinitive Edition for us owners of the original game + all DLC on PC. I wonder if it's even worth installing compared to the original release.

Change the text to Destructoid. Make the alien Mr. Destructoid. And make the skulls either just Jonathan Holmes, or all staff. [img]http://www.destructoid.com/ul/339243-/xcom2box-noscale.jpg[/img] We can make it into an unofficial shirt if it rocks?

Can any California based Dtoiders confirm/deny how accurate American Truck Simulator is, scenery wise? Apart from the total lack of pedestrians, that is.As a Brit I remember playing Euro Truck Simulator 2 and not recognising a damn thing about Manchester.

The multiple flavors of the soundtrack found in the options of Crypt of the Necrodancer is one of the coolest things I've ever seen a rhythm game do. Been happily replaying the earlier levels just to see a different artist's take on Danny B's original.

I...I think I may have caused the new Steam sale. I didn't buy enough during Christmas time. Now Steam is coming for me. I can feel its breath behind me already. I don't have much time left. Whoever reads this, whatever you do, DON'T LOOK INTO ITS -
