Reason Number One-Million Vanquish Will Rule: Insomniac Games Digs It
I’m extremely fucking stoked for Vanquish. The shit is the first game from Shinji Mikami, creator of Resident Evil, and executive producer of pretty much everything awesome and Capcom: Devil May Cry, Dino Crisis, Viewtiful Joe, and the SNES version of Aladdin. This is his first game for Platnium Games, the studio that brought us Bayonetta. If you were within the OL halls last spring, you’d know that I like Bayonetta. A smidge. And after finding out last week we’re getting the game this year!, the only thing that could make me more excited is praise from over gaming heroes of mine. Well, here we go!
Insomniac Games loves Vanquish, apparently, with one developer calling its “Gears of War on crack.” Three staffers named Platinum Games’ exciting cover-based shooter as they favorite E3 title, and considering how awesome it is, I can hardly blame them!
“It’s a brilliant technical showpiece from the creator of the original Resident Evil and the director of Resident Evil 4 — my favorite game of all time,” says community specialist Paul Featherstone. “It plays like Gears of War on crack and looks absolutely gorgeous.
“Platinum is knocking it out of the park after Bayonetta — hopefully we will see more frequent high-quality releases from them in the next few years.”
Hell to the yes. I want me some super-psycho, over-the-top, Gears of War on crack. Yes please.
