  1. Well… it looks I will be getting a Move.

  2. @ Alex
    Same here. I fully intend on picking this up seeing as I have yet to play Overkill.

  3. they need to include keyboard compatability for typing

  4. finally a game for playstation!!!! ive been getting jealous of xbox since they got guardian heroes and radiant silver gun

  5. Dammit. I guess I’m getting a Move too. This thing has been on hold on my Goozex “want it” queue for months. Guess it’s time to take it down.

    I just can’t help but feeling annoyed at how all these unique games that set the Wii apart are now being ported to the motion control copycats. Can’t these guys just do something new instead of port everything that we’ve seen before? To be fair, this one looks like it will add quite a bit of new stuff. I just wish they’d stop adding to games that already exist and instead start something fresh from the ground up.

  6. @ Josh

    I agree, I would have preferred Overkill 2 to be honest. This is cool though seeing as I haven’t played the first one.

  7. @ John

    Yeah, I’ve been hoping that some day we’d see a House of the Dead 4. Something that really goes back to the flavor of the original 2.

  8. does anyone know if this game has that “amazing” voice acting like house of the dead 2?

  9. Now if this were HOTD4 coming to the Move then I’d probably be excited, but I’m pretty happy with the Wii version already, and it plays quite well with the Wiimote. Waste of effort, as far as I’m concerned, and really, isn’t the Move a bust?

    Unfortunately, no (my favorite: “Don’t come!”). This one is wink wink in on the joke and really plays up the camp factor. In fact, I’d say it goes a bit too far the other way, laden with what has to be close to a record number of F-bombs for a video game.

    • @grolt

      It actually does have the world record for most swear words in a video game. It’s in the Guinness Book of World Records.

  11. Heh, not surprising then! The more you know.

  12. @alex
    actually i think another game beat house of the deads record. i dont remember what though
