    I was kind of hoping that we’d get it this year, but this is still acceptable. When it comes to Berserk waiting is just part of the course.

    Their cinematics look the way the anime should’ve looked.

    Kind of a clunky title for it, but KT have been on something of a roll this past year so I’m sure the game will kick ass. One of the VERY rare examples of international versions of a game being uncensored (only Japan censored the gore).

    Seems like TK might have nailed down cel-shaded aesthetics. This game is pretty as fuck.

    Pretty sure the animated cinematics are from the theatrical films
    But the in-game CG cinematics? Yeah, EXACTLY right

    Game looks amazing, tho the title makes it sound like Guts’ name is “Berserk” also i absolutely love that “120 minute of animated cutscenes” was a bulletpoint in the trailer

    That’s why you don’t buy games all at once. If you wait even just one month the prices would already be lower. With the exception of Persona 5 (already out in Japan) you don’t even know if these games are good or not.

    I think Berserk is a pretty cool guy. Eh wields a huge sword and doesn’t afraid of anything.

    Joking. I’m not actually going to buy them all at once.

    I thought so, but delt like Id say it just in case. I have a brother with a tendency to do that so I guess its just instinct.

    Berserk is the real hero we deserve, him and his band of friends, the Hawks

    It’s-It’s so Beautiful!….In that Gory kind of way. I really, really hope they don’t mess this one up.

    well the usual concern for western censorship is primarily stuff related to sexuality more so than violence.

    Unless you’re Australia or Germany.

    It’ll come in the lul period of games worth spending money on. I’m fine with this. It’ll allow me to finish some games up.

    They nailed the fuck out of the Attack on Titan game and I don’t even like AOT all that much.
