How wet will Wet make you get?

Shares

 
These are effectively locked off areas where the enemies just keep on coming until Rubi has disabled all the spawn doors. And the Chinatown flavoured area we saw looked like a whole lot of gratifying fun. Cookie-cutter goons poured from windows ten at a time. Rubi would kill them. More goons. More killing. More goons. More killing. More goons. More killing. And so on.

The area looked neatly designed too, so there was plenty opportunity for Rubi to run, slide, jump, dive, swing and generally be impossibly ninja-like around the environment while maintaining an impressive kill tally. And all in slow motion, of course.

How wet did we get? Some non-odorous underarm gland leakage.

 
When something makes Rubi really mad, she goes into batshit crazy killing frenzy mode. Or 'Rage' mode as it's actually called in the game. They happen at scripted points and Rubi is virtually invincible for the duration of the Rage mode sequence. And, while raging, style goes out the window as point rewards are based purely on the volume of kills.

For some reason, Rage mode makes everything look a bit like Killer 7. It's all cel-shaded and arty looking and enemies disappear in a fizz bomb of molecules. But we're not complaining. It looks stylish. And we like stylish.

How wet did we get? Definitely some moisture around the thigh and groinal region.


Based on our demo, Wet makes us think a lot about Kill Bill and a bunch of decent games we've seen and played before. It's definitely no wave maker, but if the shooty-combat-sword-violence is enjoyable enough, we've no doubt that Wet will be well worth a sprinkle. If we were to convert our excitement into an arbitrary visual representation, we'd say we're about four full glasses of water wet for Wet right now.

It's a shame we're not more wet for Wet, because then we could have used the bikini hose down picture with at least some justification.

Got a question about Wet? Feel free to pop me a PM.

    Now Bayonetta is a game that they're trying to sell with sex, this is more so bullet time and super awesome violence lol. It looks fun to play even though it might not be anything new yet it looks like it has all the old things that were good. re-captcha: reclaim Fuel

    What's up with all the "Rage" modes in games lately? My problem isn't the mechanic of the mode, just the fact that it's called "Rage". I like Matt's description better - Batshit crazy killing frenzy mode, though it may catch on better if the 'frenzy' is dropped and simplified to B.C.K. mode. Kinda harks to doom and the BFG9000 naming scheme.

    Doesn't look to bad, I have some hope. Everyone seemed to be negative towards this. I know it will get at least a 7. Although I know it might not I'm leaning towards better than bad though. Re-captcha: Hitlers vigilante

    'Normal guys' are much more acceptable in games as we can see ourselves in them. Normal girls are mostly[ but not only] seen in casual games not aimed at guys. This looks like a western Bayonetta without the demons.

    Well, there's just enough underboob in the last picture that I give this article 6 glasses of water out of the daily recommended 8.

    First off I gotta say I'm not terrible excited about this game because it seems to be a massive ripoff of all kinds of games such as Stranglehold. But thats ok, if it turns out to be a better looking Stranglehold, I'll play it anyway. Next I'd like to point out to flourine that "'normal' girls" don't really do it for a game. Just like you don't really ever see any "normal" guys as the main character of any game. You hear alot of reviews claiming that your just an everyday average joe that happened to crash into the ocean (bioshock) but really there's nothing normal there cuz you still kick the bleeding shit outta everyone you see. Normal doesn't sell. Normal is boring. Sex isn't needed to sell in theory but since a girl protaganist basically needs to be super amazing... sexyness is a bi-product. Guy characters tend to super-freaking durable and rough around the edges and super-macho. Girls are freakishly acrobatic, tough and... well sexy. And that's how it should be. Unless you're into dykes. re-captcha: oped tennis

    I am tired of these damn bullet time obsessed third person action games. They should become what World War II games were, something you make fun of for the sheer volume of them. I am sick and angry of this bs.
  • DonkeyPuncher - April 30, 2009 2:18 a.m.

    yeah, it seems like this one really isn't bringing anything new to the table. and what is the deal with the unlimited ammo and no reloading??
  • jar-head - April 30, 2009 1:12 a.m.

    matrix? But better.

    @fluorine's original comment: I know someone's gonna say it, so I guess I will: Portal. And, like EcoEclipse said, they made it pretty clear that Rubi won't be used as a sex object. How about reading the article before you complain about it next time, eh?
  • EcoEclipse - April 29, 2009 11:55 p.m.

    (Responding to Fluorine's original comment.) Did you not read this article? They made it clear that Rubi is not meant as a sex object. So yes, just once we did get a female game character that is not a sex object. (Although by saying "female game character," well, there's a lot of those. Maybe "female protagonist" would have been a better choice of words.

    to RooringRA: LOL, I know I know...E cup in bikini give a bit of healthy shake, there you have it, that alone can sell any game (dead or alive beach volleyball, anyone?)
  • RooringRA - April 29, 2009 11:35 p.m.

    @ flourine: No way! whats the fun in a video game with a female if she isen't wearing a Bikini. The reason game devolopers do that is becouse thats what sells, the only game to do have a female without showing her body is Samus from Metroid but even at the end of the game they showed her in a bikini
  • fluorine - April 29, 2009 11:25 p.m.

    For once...I mean...just for once...Can we have a female game character who's NOT a sex object? Can we have a normal pretty girl wearing normal active clothing? Why Marcus Fenix can wear those heavey gears, we girls have to wear bikini (or something alone that line)? I know sex sells, but sex is not the only thing that sells. Good action, clever level design, great storyline, solid character buidling also sells, and they sells better in the long run.
