No More Heroes (not The Strangler’s song)

Imagine if you will, you are a lowly uber geek, known as the otaku in Japan. This is geek obsession that goes beyond the call of booty. One day you win a light saber or beam katana in an eBay style auction.

For some bizarre reason or lapse of judgement, you think this makes you a hardcore assassin and start to climb the ranks of the UAA, the governing body of assassins in your hometown of Santa Destroy. Nice name.

A name like Travis Touchdown would destine you to become a football player (US sense) or a hit man, so maybe it works out for the best.

The game will be a sandbox very much like GTA. You will travel around on your Akira style bike and dispatch Hitmen and their cronies to become the very best. The Pokemon ideology but for grown ups.

One of my favourite features is the ability to shake the Wii mote to recharge your light saber when it’s low on energy. Not only an interesting game mechanic but it also makes Travis look like he’s pleasuring himself. Genius.

I got to the trailer before I realised you where serious.

Bonkers, that is.
