Killer is Dead videos show gameplay, how to woo the ladies

Friday, 7th June 2013 20:38 GMT By Stephany Nunneley

Killer is Dead has quite a few gameplay videos available for you to gawp, showing everything from battles to how to woo the ladies. It’s not that hard, really. Battling it out that is. Check ‘em all out below. Grasshopper Manufacture’s latest arrives on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in August. Thanks, Gematsu.

    Although I liked No More Heroes on the Wii, Killer7 on the Gamecube really was something else. Best of luck to them!

    yeah killer 7 blew me away. that game, wind waker, eternal darkness and many more. the gamecube had some very good and memorable games and people still say it was a shit system :) i will never understand that.

    It’s because a lot of people thought buying a PS2 made them ‘grown up’ and ‘cool’.

    The gamecube looked like a toy (a good thing), and dog forbid they be seen with a ‘toy’ console…

    But, having that stance you missed out on;

    F Zero
    Chibi Robo
    Fire Emblem
    Eternal Darkness
    Killer 7
    Donkey Kong jungle Beat

    Besides it being a total straw-man argument (lets position one faction/platform against another because we’re ultrasensitive and, despite nobody so far making the claim, we’ll dispute it pre-emptively and list some games because listing games is proof!) , it’s using precisely the same “adult/child’s console” logic so passionately dismissed in so many other arguments – now, suddenly and mysteriously perfectly valid. I guess that logic is only valid when you happen to approve of the end result. How convenient!

    Also PS2 owners missed out on Killer 7? Are you sure about that?

    Of course…

    Sorry, I forgot the main marketting push behind Playstation wasn’t to try and make gaming ‘cool’! Silly me…

    Pushing ‘Wipeout’ into Ministry of Sound clubs and pushing FMV in showreels over gameplay didn’t happen at all…

    Of course Killer 7 was released on PS2, but, like Resi 4; it will be always remembered as a Gamecube game.

    I don’t understand your reference to ‘other arguments’? Nintendo consoles are always percieved as childish, even though thats not true?

    You could have ignored my previous post if you didn’t agree. You have put yourself on the pedestsal, the perfect position for a nudge.

    Two posts and, completely unprompted by anyone, you’ve attempted to position this as a platform vs platform argument. Nobody else. Just you. You introduced that topic, and you are arguing for it and perpetuating it.

    You’re also providing misinformation and applying double-standards.

    As you say “Things never change”. Maybe they’d change if proliferate posters could curb their incessant desire to start unnecessary platform wars.

    I love the fact that your inner Sony fanboy is showing. I like GAMES not consoles, but fanboys piss me off.

    The conversation started by talking about Killer 7 on the Gamecube, once again, you’ve decided to draw a line under after this.

    Someone (I can’t remember who?) was talking about the Gamecube looking too childish (especially the pad) the other day, which Poly commented on. He didn’t argue, just said he liked the design. Im aware alot of people thought this about the GC’s design especially as the PS2 was being pimped as the ‘adults’ choice with DVD et all.

    Nintendo didn’t make the ‘kiddie’ image, Sony just tried to pretend gaming was for big boys.

    All I was stating was good games you may have missed if you didn’t get a GC and still hold up ‘gameplay wise’ today.

    All you have done is be over sensitive. Like I said, you forgot to tuck your fanboy in.

    Look at comment 1 and 2. Now look at your first sentence in comment 3.

    Started by you. Unprompted by anyone else. Perpetuated by you.

    Spin spin spin as much as you like. Fire as many accusations as you like. You’re still making this a platform vs platform debate even though nobody else is. You appear to be unable to stop.

    @4 you forgot about the no1 reason I bought it next to the playstation: Metroid ;-)

    And I still play some of those titles from time to time, it’s because of gameplay > graphics …

    Joe, you aren´t even honest to yourself but still think you can judge others?. i can´t understand why you always want to play the forum teacher. it´s a weird obsession. your cock waving, smartass attitude is not helping out anyone.
    this place must not be perfect. smile.
    you behave like the pope. preaching morals but not acting by your own standards.
    i said i liked the gamecube, monkey said he believed many people did not like the gamecube because it looked like a toy. we had this discussion here. several times. people said that. it´s not a made up fantasy, so nothing wrong with posting this here. it´s not offensive, it´s a freaking discussion, with opinions, preferences and all that you know. i wont continue to let you draw a picture of me being a fanboy. i never was one. never. there was a time when i enjoyed sega the most, nintendo, i played 360 the most this gen and i am having a playstation revival atm. you wont tell me the truth is something else mr. joe.
    you know what your problem is: you think you are making the right conclusions…but you don´t. you assume a lot, too much really, you seem to ignore posting history too when you feel like it, while other times you back up your stuff when it suits you, yet you are complaining if others do the same. i think you just love yourself a bit too much and aren´t very sensitive. you fail at reading between the lines. you are missing humour too.
    what systems do you play on joe?

    Sorry poly. Not in the mood for another tiresome tag-team between you and your chum. Your opening remark demonstrates that your mind is already made up so you don’t require any input from me.

    My earlier points still stand, but these attempts at distraction and deflection are cute. smile.

    Always amusing when trolls complain about trolls. Here, have a fiver – go buy yourself some self-awareness.

    no problem joe. on the other hand, it´s not my problem if you start this over and over again. you shouldn´t complain if you get a reaction to it. if you feel like correcting people all the time and analysing every single word they are saying, expect them to react to it, especially because you are deciphering them completely wrong – at least that´s how i feel most of the time about you explaining me what i just said – or don´t even bother at all. starting it and then saying i don´t feel like discussing it now is kind of cheap. i am always ready for another round. i am also always ready for a shake hands. cute. naaah, rather annoying but smile indeed.

    “It’s because a lot of people thought buying a PS2 made them ‘grown up’ and ‘cool’.”

    “It’s because a lot of people”

    “A lot”


    Not “all”…


    You have chosen to take this as an attack on ALL PS2 owners rather than the merits of the game cube.

    People bought the Gamecube because its a Nintendo console and nothing else.

    People bought the PS2 because of implied cool and totally nothing to do with the PS1.

    No one bought the Xbox.

    OK I’m glad we cleared that up there.

    I think the only people who associate Killer 7 with being a Nintendo game are people who owned a Gamecube. I think most people probably saw it as a weird PS2 title. Same with Resident Evil 4. It’s only considered a Nintendo game by hardcore Nintendo fans. Most people just see it as another RE game.

    Now, the REmake, yes. People do consider that a Nintendo game because it was exclusive. Same with Twin Snakes.

    It’s sad that, in a thread with an article with absolutely zero to do with Nintendo, it had to become an NDF thread.

    That said, I will say that I came this close to buying a Gamecube for Killer 7, Viewtiful Joe, and Resident Evil 4. It was the first Nintendo system since the NES that had a lineup that somewhat appealed to me, I thought link was a better Soul Calibur II guest character than Spawn or Heihachi (in fact, I think the PS2 had the worst guest character there. I had really hoped they would have added someone not typically known from a fighting game) and they had this deal where there was Zelda collection disc that came with the system, so it had reached the amount of exclusives I require a system to have before I buy it, I started saving up. Two weeks before I was going to buy it, all three of those games were announced for PS2, so I no longer had any incentive to pick up the system, as it had lost a lot of exclusives (in fact, I actually assumed, at the time, that REmake would have made it over too, to be quite honest).

    It was a lot easier to just wait a year and get the better version of RE4 than to buy a new system whose controller I wasn’t particularly fond of in the first place (it always looked like someone had left Dreamcast controller and a N64 controller on a radiator with a bunch of crayons).

    Oh, what a amazing thread. Not. Same people trying to instigate…again.
    Ninty backed games (mainly) for kids, Sony went for an “adult” audience for marketing, their games show that. I feel sorry for anyone who tries to spin it, because both Ninty and Sony have acknowledged that, directly or indirectly.
    Btw, no shame in playing any games, we all were kids once.

    It was part of this:

    Thats why I associate it with the Gamecube & Nintendo.

    It was a kind of ‘iconic moment’ for Capcom & Nintendo to be working together, especially after Resi Evil on the PS1.

    #26 2 years ago
  27. absolutezero

    The PS2 version of RE4 is the worst available, well apart from the PC port but at least I could shove some modded skins in that to make up for it being a piece of shit.

    #27 2 years ago

    @31 – But it’s a moment that failed for both parties involved and Capcom went back to producing games for other systems. The initial idea was for Capcom to eventually be bought by Nintendo, if I remember correctly. But it didn’t work. The sales were too low and so they had to go back to where their bread was buttered.

    There’s a reason people think Christopher Columbus discovered America. It’s because the other Europeans who got here first didn’t stay and establish themselves. Sure, those games were on Gamecube first, but very few people remember that. I only remember it because they almost made me buy the system.

    I was actually tired of the Resident Evil franchise by the time RE4 came out, but a friend of mine let me play it on his Gamecube, along with Viewtiful Joe and Killer 7, so I started thinking, “Hey, they fixed Resident Evil! I should definitely look into the system.”

    But, as I said, there was no need. The games didn’t take hold on the Gamecube, so I was able to get them on the system I already had and that’s how they’ll be remembered now.

    The *best* version of Resi 4 was on the wii…

    Only game worth playing on the wii too ;)

    @34 – No need for gimmicky aiming nonsense when there’s a perfectly good controller to aim with.

    @32 – The graphics, in the end, turned out to be a little bit less than the Gamecube version, but whatever. Didn’t care then. Don’t care now. It had the extra Ada stuff and that was what mattered.

    I would argue it was a ‘teenage’ audience rather than an ‘adult’ one.

    Also, regardless of ‘marketing’, gameplay still remains the consistant truth.

    In the early days, alot of Sony titles were ‘smoke and mirrors’ (which sometimes, still holds true today).

    That does happen a bit with Ninty, but the gameplay is always a big (if not only) focus.

    Just look at how Luigi’s Mansion 2 was developed. Lots of the levels were ‘scrapped’ just because the gameplay wasn’t right:

    “Yeah… I think officially he said there was no true tea-table-flipping on this title. [laughs] But at one point he threw out all the bosses of the game and made us start over.” (LM2 Dev on Miyamoto)

    #31 2 years ago
  32. monkeygourmet


    Yeah, can’t argue with that.

    It’s subjective. A lot of friends and I just think of these as GC games; Resi 4, Killer 7, Viewtiful Jew etc…

    I guess it just dependant on which console you gamed on. Like people thinking ‘Panzer Dragoon’ is an Xbox game rather than a Saturn game.

    For some strange reason, I never owned a PS2.

    Had tons of access to the console and played most games, but plumped for the xbox and GC in the end.

    PS1 was a god tier console though, played the shit outta that..

    too true, Wii version kicked ass!

    Different tastes again I guess. I don’t like jumping,kicking for hours in a game, which is exactly what all mainline Mario games do. If you like it, I have no objections.

    Just like in Paper Mario 3ds, where they destroyed the paper thin story that existed in previous games, just for gameplay.
    Last of us(judging from reviews) vs. Any ninty game. The immersion is what I am looking for, not gameplay smokes and mirrors, which encompasses almost entire ninty output imo.

    Agree on ‘Last of Us’, really looking forward to that.

    @37 – The little Freudian slip you made with one of the titles makes me imagine a completely different game. I’ll let you figure out which one. ;)

    As for the PS2, I’d argue that it had the greatest software lineup in videogame history, with the PS1 and Genesis closely behind it.

    #36 2 years ago
  37. monkeygourmet



    You noticed! I was wondering if anyone would spot it! :D

    PS2 had easily the best line up, I would have to say SNES was on par or close, but easily over the Genesis! :)

    SNES came out hard, with;

    Super Ghouls & Ghosts
    Mario World
    F Zero
    Area 88
    Final Fight
    Super Tennis

    etc.. To be fair, Nintendo haven’t even come clost to the glory days of the SNES.

    Megadrive could shift sprites around easier though, I think Thunderforce series kicked ass!

    that was my original post. only positive things. no bashing in any direction. i just said i liked the gc, that i think it had awesome games and that i cannot understand why many people hated it. killer 7 is connected to the gc for me, it was first announced as an exclusive, i played it on the gc and i loved the game, simple as that. it was only made for ps2 as well because the gc didn´t sell as well as expected which just proves my point…and that´s me turning this into a nintendo thread? that makes me a ndf member again too?

    no way guys. no way.
