No More Heroes 2 launch vid > Mass Effect 2 launch vid


As hypnotic as Naomi's fresh pair of implants may be, that video isn't what this post is about. For the real No More Heroes 2 launch trailer, you'll have to hit the jump (due to NSFW language).

Now, I know it's an apples-vs.-oranges scenario to compare Mass Effect 2 to No More Heroes 2, but I couldn't help but do it. Both titles are coming out on the same day, and I see it as a battle of philosophies on game design. Mass Effect 2 represents one direction that gaming has been heading over the past few years: one of inflated production values, space-marines-in-the-uncanny-valley scenarios, and wanna-be Hollywood storytelling. No More Heroes 2 represents everything else games can be: art direction over expensive graphics, risk taking over cliché-hugging, and embracing of videogames as a medium instead of trying to turn them into something "cooler" like a made-for-SyFy-channel original movie. 

Not that there is anything wrong with the SyFy channel. Mansquito 4 Lyfe.

Hit the jump for the full trailer, and as usual, I've grabbed a few screens for you as well.
