"Are you awake from your nightmare?"
Killer7 was one of the more unique games in the GameCube's library. Developed for Capcom by Suda51 and Grasshopper, it was the last of the "Capcom Five" games for the GameCube (well technically the fourth, as Dead Phoenix got cancelled). Killer7 was certainly quite intriguing and had a strong adult...

"It’s up to Capcom to allow something like this"
Killer7 was one of the fabled "Capcom Five", a selection of titles that the Japanese publisher pledged would be exclusive to the GameCube. As we all know, that claim didn't last long; out of the five, only P.N.03 remained Nintendo-only, with Dead Phoenix being canned in 2003 and the remaining three...
More No More Heroes please
Were you a fan of Travis Touchdown's beam katana slashing action in No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle on the Wii? Both titles were interesting arrives on the system, with their adult humour and different censorship per region - the blood was edited out of the first game in Europe, for example. Series...

Must be a problem with the post office...

Collaboration still working hard, but secretly
A few years ago, the creators of Killer7 and Resident Evil got together and decided to start work on a game. But what genre should this new game enter into? Well, according to EA's David DeMartini, it's "mad genius in the horror genre." Although Mr DeMartini didn't reveal much else about the...
Travis Touchdown's stories weren't the only things that came thick and fast

Would be "very interested" if the opportunity arose
When you think about it, Nintendo games are ****ing crazy insane. You've got foxes and amphibians piloting starships, pink shapeshifting blobs, and space bounty hunters more focused on eradicating entire species and blowing up planets than collecting bounties. Not to mention Italian plumbers from Brooklyn who eat "power" mushrooms to do..
Return to the Gardens of Madness in April!
