    This is the first game where I said to myself, "I'm going to need to call a friend that has a PS3". It looks like an assload of fun.

    I know this is supposed to be badass, but I'm more excited about Lair coming out in less then 3 weeks.

    Played it. Really freaking short demo. Character models are good. The hair physics stink though. Gameplay feels a lot like NGS as you don't just constantly attack and hope not to get killed. I hate how I can't skip cutscenes.

    You get only 2 major battles in the demo.

    Its a short demo, but i thought it was great and i will be buying it the day its released. Also why would you want to skip the cutscenes?

    When you have seen them already and want to get to the action, of course.

    Holy shit this is a short demo. But it is a lot more interesting if you experiment with the tips in the first post of this thread. I played through the demo using only counters and found the game way easier to play. I also killed a bunch of enemies just by picking up dead bodies and holding down the X-button after throwing them to steer the dead body into them. That was pretty sweet. :)

    I'll try playing in only ranged stances and power stances or with only "block breaker" moves to see how they differ from each other.

    I can see myself buying this game immediately after release.
