Is it just me or does the art remind you of the cult Cartoon Network show Samurai Jack? That's just badass! :D

meh. it looks like it is trying to hard to be an ultra-violent platformer, then added cheap lnes to make it seem like more then it is. I might check it out... MIGHT! Steam better have a demo.

Due to these new ads they've added to videos, Adblock Plus has begun to block videos from loading... -5 points for gamespot.

Reminds me of Samurai Jack. Not that that is a bad thing though.

I'm really looking forward to Shank! Klei Entertainment hasn't disappointed me yet, so I'm confident that this will be an excellent brawler.

With all do respect, I think it looks like a knock-off of Afro Samurai and Samurai Jack. Doesn't look worth $60 either, but everyone has their own opinion :D !! Hope it proves me wrong :)

@TKO59, the videos never load for me when its a Truth ad for some reason. Works every other time, but when a Truth ad comes up, the videos never load. Hope that helps.
