  • Death Dealer

    Once again a great game James!

  • ElektroDragon

    This looks like a GREAT game if you can get over yet another game in that “hip” badly drawn 2D art style that’s so popular nowadays. Funny how bad Flash art is now considered trendy and cool.

    However, MAJOR props for correctly spelling Tepes with the correct grammar marks. Must have been a Romanian on your team. So I may have to look past the art style and buy it. :) The price is right, for once.

    • roozbeh, again

      I think he was Hungarian wasn’t he? Transylvania was a part of hungary back then

      • ElektroDragon

        No, Vlad Tepes was Romanian… a Wallachian. Check Wikipedia next time. :) I can’t believe two misinformed people upvoted you.

        • JoeGrahamcracker

          Transylvanian Hunger

          • roozbeh, again

            dont mock hungary. makes you look like an a**.
            plus that wasnt funny

          • JoeGrahamcracker

            Its actually a Darkthrone album. I’m not trying to mock Hungary. .I’d rather be there than here.

          • roozbeh, again

            Sorry didn’t know.

        • roozbeh, again

          i cant believe it myself. /facepalm
          how could i forget where vlad the impaler tepes was from.
          no need to check wikipedia. i was a history minor

          • ElektroDragon

            I hate to break it to you, but Transylvania’s original country was also Romania. The Hungarians INVADED it so its was part of Hungary for a while. I should know, I am Romanian.

          • roozbeh, again

            actually wallachia was part of hungary. basarab the first got it independent.

          • ElektroDragon

            I don’t think you have your facts right here. The independent people of Wallachia, Transylvania and Moldova are overwhelmingly ethnic Romanians tracing their roots to the Dacians and Romans. Hungary just conquered parts of Romania from time to time. It never belonged to Hungary except as temporary capture. Else it would be part of Hungary today, and it ain’t.

          • roozbeh, again

            Im not saying they were but for a prolonged period of time they were part of Hungary. Prior 9th century they were independent. But they were part of Hungary for pretty long while.
            The roots of the people you mentioned are no doubt Romanian. Im just pointing out they were part of Hungary for a long time.

        • Liquidfx Xboxdude

          yeah because Wikipedia is always right. not.

          • roozbeh, again

            Once I was there reading about lady bugs and every single paragraph was ‘I think lady bugs are silly’.

    • Wiimo

      Hooray, I’m not the only one who dislikes the art style. I agree, if you can get over that it’s pretty fun. It has a weird difficulty spike and uneven gameplay, though. Nails the weapons and gear system. Pretty great value at $10.

  • HC Green

    Got to review this and it’s like Castle Crashers meets Scott Pilgrim vs The World. Lots of fun. And for some shameless promotion, Ska Studio gave me some codes to give away later today so check my TL (@VideoGamerRob).

    • ElektroDragon

      OK, I’ll be waiting. :) Thanks for doing this btw, you rock!

      • HC Green

        Thanks, you should’ve seen our PAYDAY 2 giveaway! :)

  • DerpieDutch

    Totally off topic:
    No Xbox in my country in 2013. Postponed till 2014?
    Yup thats the final nail on the coffin. Things were looking up since the policy got a few changes. This must be a joke. Please tell me this is a hoax.

    You know one third of xbox 360′s is sold in Europe right? WTF

  • DaeJim

    Great game, cool art-work :)

  • roozbeh, again

    vlad tepes was wallachian yes, but he did change sides quite a bit. during his third reign he sided with the hungarians to conquer wallachia again.

    • ElektroDragon

      Well, my patriotism is for USA. I just respect the motherland. :)

      • roozbeh, again

        That’s a nice trait a lot of people in the USA don’t have. I have a cousin in the USA who supports the idea of conquering his motherland. So nice to see people still care about there roots.

  • マリオ

    I liked this art style when it was darker. How come The Dishwasher games aren’t on sale?

  • マリオ

    Indeed it does. Sucks that is exclusive to the PS brand.

    • ElektroDragon

      Wouldn’t sell on Xbox, sadly. That’s why you gotta own ALL the consoles. X1+PS4 = awesome.

      • roozbeh, again

        could not agree more. you have to own all consoles.

  • Does Not Equal

    Sony Microsoft would be an evil corporate merger.

  • Death Dealer

    Don’t jinx it ;).

  • Justin Stewart

    Well I played the demo and I liked it surprisingly so I bought the game. I thought if you bought 2 games you get 800 ($10) microsoft points?
