Hello, and welcome to another episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone. This week, we’re talking about No More Heroes and Cuphead. It’s anti-hero week here! We have a lot of thoughts. We have a big big lot of thoughts about these games.
No More Heroes
No More Heroes from Grasshopper Manufacture (and more specifically Suda51) is sure a game that exists. It’s a hack and slash action-adventure romp for the Wii and that sure was a console it was on. Play as Travis Touchdown, the worst kind of internet menace, who finds himself caught up with the United Assassins Association and forced into a mission to kill the top ten assassins both to keep himself from being targeted and for a chance to score with the woman who recruited him. It’s an interesting game with…some problems. Sure looks damn cool though.
Cuphead is a run-and-gun indie game from Studio MDHR where you play as cups and die a lot. After losing in a gambling match to the devil, the titular character and his brother Mugman are tasked with collecting outstanding souls owed to the devil in exchange for not losing their own. Gameplay consists of punishing boss battles that often require deep amounts of precision and patience- both things that we at Talk This! do not pride ourselves on. It’s got local co-op thought!
