I like the narrative too... but they didn’t do enough with it. They should’ve had an interaction/lifestyle (Life is Strange sorta) slow down time moments. Just to be a bit more of a power trip. Make decisions matter to a final outcome, even if not ending based have some unlockables for route choice.

I can’t wait for Katana one (katana zero 2), where you probably get to select a time samurai and co-op will be a thing, I do like the gameplay but it left me hungry for more.

Have you tried My Friend Pedro Yahtzee?

It's 2019 and Zero Punctuation is still making angry video game power point presentations.

If you're gonna complain about the story in a story-based game is held back by the story then maybe you shouldn't be reviewing these types of games lmao

I just want to say that I'm pretty sure that one of the lead devs on this game worked on Barkley Shut Up And Jam Gaiden.

Katana Zero is the best game I've played this year so far! How the hell do you please this guy!?

Katana Zero is honestly a flashy trash

I loved the plot twist at the end , it was pretty unexpected and a good ending to the game. I loved both gameplay and story . That "important choice" was a pretty weak tbh but except for that the story and the dialogue were amazing. I love that chick that checks your ID at The Murdower and at the bunker. You get so many different outcomes from her that are all interesting and cool and it's the most replayability except for the gameplay itself that I got out of the game. My main complaint is that I didn't get to fight Snow.... :(

"extended the wheelchair ramp to let my masturbation addled thinking keep up" what a genius way to describe slow-mo

This review is pretty shit. For the first 1 min or so in this deceptively short video he delivers nonstoppopculturereferenceswithhisalreadynotsoeasytounderstandvoice with these hideous backgrounds and stickart. All while downplaying the gameplay themes to making it sound like a chore rather than the neon colored high it is to play the game.


Don't listen to this jerkoff.

Katana died so now there's zero katana

the choice did have consequences but you didn't go for the full run. it's kind of a spoiler. anyway, you also miss out on a secret lab key if you fail the secondary objevtive.

idk when this was made but it now has a great challenge/speedrun mode where you can play all levels back to back without all the fluff and with all the different weapons. including remade levels for hard mode and options like having no slowno. good if you want to compare scores and set goals too if you like that kind of stuff, but otherwise counters can be turned off.

i also thought katana zero had very worthwhile achievement hunting that made it well worth replaying to get all the secrets.
Stryfe
Why was his *left* hand broken in the masturbation joke?

"It just got too much set-up and not enough payoff" - This describes my experience EXACTLY... man, u guys at Escapist are something else
Princess Luna
Wait, there was story after choosing to die?
Maybe sticking my head up a fish wasn't the best idea.....
Exalted Guy Interactive
Where were they giving hats away at GDC?!?!? We totally missed that!
