Killer is Dead: Hot Dates and Brutal Assassinations

Suda 51's newest project is a bizarre mix of intense action and awkward dating sim.

To me this game just reeks of mediocre, boring button mashing with sub-par graphics at best.  Little boys will want this game for the see thru glasses as opposed to whatever this game is suppose to be about. This review gave me no insight as to what the heck this game was about or why it is done is black/white with red blood.  Wont waste my money on this junk.

Give them a break guys. They mentioned that although it's weird to them, they understood that it's not a new thing in Japan, and Tom even said he loved the game two times over. Cut them some slack. Dating sims aren't the big thing in the US...

yeah shooting people in a videogame is fine but a dating sim is considered "awkward"

The mechanics sound interesting but I'm not feeling the photonegative gameplay graphics.

Love Suda 51, one of the only developers that actually tries different things. If it wasn't for people like him we'd be stuck with games like COD all the time....

Why is it we as gamers always accept action in our games as authentic and legitimate, whereas if somebody tries to make a game with dating in it, we dub it as "awkward" or pathetic? We're already playing power fantasies, so why is our ego unable to accept us playing dating sims?

So the GamesSpot staff decries booth babes, but Suda gets a pass for blatant sexism?

Never would have expected a game called 'Killer Is Dead' to be much of a dating sim, lol. Still looks great, as do just about all of Suda's creations.

So it's a game where you have to try to check out bewbs while chicks aren't looking?  Art is truly imitating life now.

@HiImUPSMan Agreed. Its ok to shoot people and call other players names online...but some nudity or dating sim...no. Thats wjut wrong.

@Ten_Tigers I agree, the art style looks like it was based off of bad shadow effects. I know there's a difference between looking real and looking good but this doesn't look either.

@MooncalfReviews  I personally find them boring. I'm an action nut and my opinion is as good as the next simple gamer, but well, you asked :D

@MooncalfReviews It's not egos that make them the most pathetic mechanic in gaming. Besides, this looks like more of a parody of those elements anyway.

@jazilla  and a free pass from me. Suda51 always does this because it's a matter of crazy style to bomb your ears and eyes, not a matter of idealization/objetification of genders. Just look how hell is in Shadows of the Damned, for example. If we wanted to put a no sexism idea to an extreme, everyone in games should wear gray or brown drab robes/armor, overall design be damned.

@jazilla I don't think people get the difference between sexism and sexual content...

@sr_ninguem @MooncalfReviews We everyone who has ever played a game that isn't Train Simulator, which is still a power fantasy because you sir are never going to conduct a train nor be the person who controls the electronics conducting the train.
