Max Anarchy trailer puts me in full hype mode

Recommended Videos

I loved MadWorld. I didn’t always like it, but I always loved it. The graphics, the character design, the boss fights, the soundtrack; they were all enough to keep the game’s various shortcomings from bothering me. I feel that way, more or less, about all of Platinum Games’s titles thus far. There are little things I don’t like about all of them, but the love is still there regardless.

That’s why I’m losing my sh*t over Max Anarchy. I’m in no way sold on the game yet. The idea of multi-player being the focus scares me, and I still have no idea how it’s going to play, but the fact that Jack (and maybe a souped-up Big Bull Croker) from MadWorld seems to central to the game’s events has me spazzing out. From the looks of this teaser trailer, there are at least two other central characters in the mix as well, one with a distinct Bayonetta-feel, and the other with a definite Vanquish-vibe.

If Platinum manages to combine the various character styles and gameplay hooks from MadWorld, Bayonetta, and Vanquish in one game, this may just turn out to be my Game of the Year.

[Thanks, Green Guy!]
