Let’s Play No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise September 9, 2011Posted by Maniac in Let's Play, Site Videos.
No More Heroes is my favorite game for the Nintendo Wii. Based on the recommendation of my friend Twitch, I picked the game up just after I bought a Wii (when it was just making it into the bargain bin). The game itself was a fun romp with good use of the wiimote controller, good art direction and gameplay, and an interesting adult story.
The game did not do well initially. The last thing I mentioned in the last paragraph was “an interesting adult story,” and many critics believe that the wii’s audience just does not accept games directed towards core adult gamers, and the audience the game was seeking for would own either a PS3 or Xbox 360.
The game follows an Otaku who meets a bombshell one night at a bar and offers him the chance to join a league of assassins. Armed with his beam katana (which is basically a lightsaber), he and the player sets out to be the best assassin and make it to the top.
With the release of the Playstation Move controller, a controller very similar in control scheme to the wiimote, Konami has brought an HD version No More Heroes to the PS3 in the States with full Move support, called No More Heroes: Heroes Paradise.
The demo is out on Playstation Network, so Maniac dusts off his Move Wand (which hasn’t gotten use since Dead Space Extraction was released) and gives a go at the demo, which covers the very first ranking battle. Like with all my previous lets plays, I take a look at it in glorious HD and see just how it plays in comparison to the original Wii version, as well as talk about my history with the series, and some series tidbits.
