    Default Anarchy Reigns - Anyone Else Import it?

    wiki article and trailer for those of you who don't know what game this is.

    So did anyone else import? My PS3 copy came in a few days ago and I've been playing it a solid 2 hours every day since. I'm maining Durga, the man with the revolver for a leg.

    IT's a shame, but with SEGA pretty much bankrupt, they've only released this in Japan, and even though it's completely translated they aren't bringing it anywhere else for another year.

    Is it any good? I've heard it's vaguely Power Stone: how true is that?

    It is AMAZING. I guess you could compare it to powerstone,

    I haven't played much powerstone but I remember you could transform into a "super" mode right? Well in this game you have a meter that builds the more damage you deal. When it fills up you go into a super mode by clicking in both sticks. When in this mode you run twice as fast, and you punch like Kenshiro from fist of the north star. Also your killer weapon gauge never depletes. This mode lasts for 30 seconds, and if two people powered up attack each other a quick time event happens where you and your opponent press the face buttons as fast as you can (like track and field games) and the winner kills the other guy.

    They both have huge open levels, though this game has MUCH larger ones, and they both have items you can pick up and throw at each other.

    tires, cars, hydrogen tanks that freeze you, stop sign posts, etc.

    Anything specific you wanted to know?

    Were you able to download Bayonetta or is that relegated to the Japan PSN?

    I have the code but haven't bothered. Her code is actually a physically part of the box (it's right under where the disc stays) so I should be able to redeem it whenever I want if I log into my japanese account and enter it in. I'm more interested in redeeming the code for the MAX SURVIVAL mode, which I really should get into soon.

    Only played for about an hour yesterday, but I can see comparisons to Power Stone.

    The single player story mode seems monotonous but controls well and the graphics are really really nice.

    This game is somewhere between Power Stone and God Hand.

    I'm a bit bummed that Bayonetta is completely relegated to the online multiplayer.

    Multiplayer seems fun though - FPS style maps with power-stone style beat-em up controls.

    CRAZY! Only Platinum would come up with something like this! Seems worth the bargain price and it'll probably only ever get cheaper. Worth a look if you're a Platinum games junkie.
