Let It Die (Eddie Makuch)
Let It Die, the next game from Killer7 and No More Heroes designer Suda51 and developer Grasshopper Manufacture, is one to pay attention to. It's a hack-and-slash game set in Tokyo--and it's pretty over-the-top. During my hands-on session at E3 I learned that you can eat frogs to replenish your health or throw them at enemies. Obviously, I threw them at enemies more often than I ate them. It felt like the right thing to do. Let It Die has a gorgeous, cel-shaded art style that is striking and unique.The combat mechanics, including melee and ranged attacks, seem to be coming along well and have a certain weight to them that makes the fight sequences stand out. After a 20-minute demo, I was left wanting to play more. Let It Die is coming sometime this year for PlayStation 4. It's a free-to-play game but don't let that scare you off: Suda51 says the game is not pay-to-win.
