That Bullet Witch game looks a little jank but I still kinda want it.

I have the first(?) Fate/Extella game but I haven't played it so I can't really get too excited about that.

It really does
Its such a bizarrely ugly-looking and flawed game but the idea itself doesn't seem too bad and its music is great by the sound of it. I just really like the fact that Marvelous/XSeed is saving old games from being trapped on dead consoles. I hope it becomes a trend.

I played Bullet Witch a bit a while back, I think it will be much easier with KB/mouse...as long as the port supports it.
I'd pick it up for 5 bucks.

Bullet Witch? I'm okay with this. It was very much an early 360 game but it was lots of fun. It also killed the automatic cutoff on the subwoofer I had at the time.

Hopefully Bullet Witch is unlocked to at least 60fps and 4K for PC, the game runs pretty bad at times on 360. Wonder if this could lead to Xbox One backwards compatibility...

Bullet witch is terrible but I do like the main character art. It was an very early 360 game and I found it janky but It sucked me in with the cover art.

I honestly can’t imagine what I would think if I played it today for the first time, I guess it is no worse than the mechanics from deadly premonition but bullet witch doesn’t even have a hint of a good story from what I remember.

Wait, there's demand for Bullet Witch in 2018? This seems a bit late out of the gate. I remember playing it back in the day and giving up on the loading screen before the final mission.

Retrospectively, it kind of felt like what would have happened if Sega had shopped out the Bayonetta license to a mid-tier western developer DmC-style.
