Preview: Hands-on with Juliet Starling’s decapitated head

To clarify, it’s not Juliet’s decapitated head – it’s her boyfriend Nick’s, though it may as well be hers. If you can tie your lover’s head to a chain and swing him around in circles repeatedly pummeling any and all zombies in your path, then it’s probably safe to make that assumption.

In fact, I did just that during my first ever hands-on session with Lollipop Chainsaw this week, and I left feeling relieved (and mildly turned on, but that’s another matter). The combat feels good without being overly repetitive, and the wide array of combo moves and colorful humor serve to add a decent amount of variety. Also, upskirts.

Oh god, the upskirts.
