even if this game were really good and it nets like a 90%+ on MetaCritic it still probably wouldn't sell well, as is usually the case with Japanese games that fly under the radar and are barely promoted as far as critical reception goes it looks like it's garnering great reviews, still don't expect it to sell well but I'm picking it up as good games are good games as far as I see it, probably just going to be a cult hit if anything

I've only seen one ad for lollipop chainsaw outside of gamespot. It was when I walked into gamestop randomly and it was on the tv.

I've been playing it and just beat the first boss. If it does "flop" it'll be from lack of promotion and poor sales, not gameplay.

Yeah, it WILL flop. Just as any Suda51 games before it. They're all flops. Most of them are good games, though.

I bought this game for my Girlfriend (she is not a gamer) cuz she wanted it ever since she saw a preview for it on some movie we watched like 6 months ago. She really likes it a lot. I played it too and I was really surprised, its fun and really easy to pick up. I hope it dosen't flop.

Im watching a walkthrough of this game right now and this game IS NOT THAT BAD! Certainly not the best fighting game ever but you cannot deny the originality!

Not worth 60$ though. 30-35$ sure

Yeah, it looks like this is another underrated game. It's a shame. I wish games like this were more popular.

Don't know exactly how reliable VG Chartz is, but first signs are positive. These are Lollipop Chainsaw's sales in its first week:

16 June 2012
Week: 1
Weekly 166,464
Total 166,464

As a comparison, Shadows of the Damned sold 10 times less in its first week:

25 June 2011
Week: 1
Weekly 17,816
Total 17,816

I'm pretty sure Grashopper has to be satisfied with this.

These are PS3 numbers by the way. I did not check the xbox ones.

It would be nice if that was true. Hopefully, this game will at least become successful enough to get a sequel.
