So...The Inevidable Question...

I currently have minimal disposable income available to me. Leaving me to rent most games.

I was pretty interested in this one, however. Wondering if it's just worth a weekend's rental or an actual purchase? How long is the story?

Ya I'd hate it to be another No More Heroes in which I rent it but ending up having to rent it twice. Still I saved money, but its the principal of renting it twice.

Rent it. I wish I did. The camera is so horrendous I don't even want to play the game.

If your a fan boy its worth buying. I rented it because I'm in the same financial boat. I love this game hack and slash plus some skill required. The story took me about 5 hours but I got stuck on a boss so probably less. I have 30+ achievements in 1 and 1/2 days some are tough if you don't know what your doing. The camera is fine I have no clue what everyone is talking about.. I haven't had any problems its always right where I want it.

I plan on getting it when it's on sale.

Like someone said before, you will enjoy this if you saw the show. Even I, an Afro Samurai fanboy, says that this is a rent. Very quick, it has replay value but thats up to you. I blew through it in 2 days, should have only taken 1 but that Flamethower Number Six held me back.
