Its developed by Platinum games (so instant purchase for me).

It takes the mechanics of games like Bayonetta, God of War and Vanquish and adds in competitive online play. Bayonetta and the dude from that Wii Madworld game are both playable too.

Looks really interesting.

I imported Anarchy Reigns expecting a multiplayer Bayonetta.
Sadly its more like a Musou game....just hammer xyxyxyxyxyx to win!!

Plus as I got the xbox version and its only out in japan I have not managed 1 min of multiplayer :D

Ahh yes I know what you mean now, shoe in for me I'm a huge Platinum fan too, I've inadvertantly bought all their games over the past few years! I'll be waiting till March to get this one when it gets a PAL release.

Hearing rumours about a PAL release of Mushihimesama HD, will keep you informed if there's any truth in this. Apparently there might be an interesting announcement at the end of the month....

After finally sitting down and spending some proper time with this on Saturday I can honestly say its a lovely port and superior to the spectacular PS2 port in every way. The game feels very stripped down for a Cave shooter and I've been just enjoying blasting big beautiful bugs!! Can I just say that the last boss in arrange mode is crazy - he takes an age to kill and you really need to concentrate hard to survive.

It's all a bit quiet on the 360 import scene, personally I'm still awaiting the announcement of pre-orders for Dodonpachi SDOU and a release date for Ginga Force.

Im feeling sorry for anybody who imported Anarchy Reigns paying £70+ as its getting a UK release for £19.99 in January.

Also does anyone one know is Under Defeat out on Friday in the UK? Some places are saying yes and some nay.

I feel sorry for you.


But we all get stung like this surely? The early bird may catch the worm, but the eagle catches the early bird. The early bird then gets fucked.

Thats the price of getting these games on import sometimes, if its any consolation the Japanese versions tend to hold their resale value much better. Heard conflicting reports about PAL Under Defeat's release date - not paid that much attention because I'm going to pick up the PS3 version further down the line.

Looking forward to Anarchy Reigns, I was so tempted to pick that up on import - glad I waitied!

It's been available digitally since the end of October, strange but true.
