New Shank Gameplay Trailer is Bloody Marvellous

EA today released a brand-spanking new gameplay trailer for their upcoming Shank, developed by Klei Entertainment. A trailer that has enough blood that it could satisfy the bloodthirsty needs of even the most sadistic vampire.

The 2D beat'em up with its unique art style and bloody gameplay will be heading to the Xbox Live Arcade in the near future, as part of a two game agreement that sees the publisher release more original and unique content in downloadable form.

As I said in the headline, it looks bloody marvellous... emphasis on the bloody! Check it out.

Not much blood, arcade games are not exciting me anymore. After splosion man and bf1943 I haven't really spent much on them. I prefer full games, the ones I have to fork out £40 for =)

Goddamnit, platforming! Platforming has no place in a beat 'em up! Why would anyone want to stop fighting to jump, swing, or slide!? That's like having traffic stops in a racing game! Why is it that nearly every beat 'em ups I've played on the 360 has to have some stupid insertion of platforming in it?!

Looks like Samurai Jack, the recent Adult Swim show that I haven't seen in a while - both artistically and in character movement.
