Played the PS5 demo just now. Used Kasane. Combat is serviceable, i dunno how much fun I would have with it in hour 15 though. Didn't think much of the story elements but i'm interested in the anime that will be airing in July at least. The DualSense implementation seem minimal. So that's a bummer and nothing in terms of 3D audio of importance. In terms of my general interest, I haven't decided whether i'm getting it day one or not but I do plan to play it at some point.

Having a save game from the demo unlocks some shit in the full version, so make sure you all don't delete the save from the demo.

There is much more detail in environments in Scarlet Nexus compare to Bayonetta.

What the heck is that bottom picture?

How would we know people aren’t interested if the games aren’t made for Xbox? Self fulfilling prophecy.
Well based on sells number for mutiplatform Japanese games that did released on Xbox compare to how it sold on playstation.

The more we see of Bandai Namco's action RPG Scarlet Nexus, the more we're intrigued by it. Its anime aesthetic, unique setting, and flashy combat are promising to come together in what has the potential to be a great game, and with its release date right around the corner, excitement surrounding the game is beginning to ramp up.

In this feature, we're going to talk about the key points of info that you should know about the game.

Played the demo on ps4pro, twice as the guy and once as the chick.
Framerate is a bit shitty, it's sluggish.

I like the look of it, the combat system seems cool, from what I can divine from the demo.
But it's not as smooth to move around as say, Bayonetta. Like I want dodge to just always get priority, so I don't get hit during attack anim.

Tried the demo yesterday on the Series X. Cool concept, too bad there is so much competition in June. I'll get it for sure if it reviews decently.
