The lights are on
Platinum Games' Anarchy Reigns hit store shelves this week for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Game Informer's Tim Turi weighed in on it, and also joined me on this episode of Test Chamber for a short look at the single-player campaign, as well as a quick multiplayer match of the rugby-like Death Ball.

Bill Laimbeer's Combat Basketball?
Jeff Gerstmann would approve.
Multiplayer looks really interesting might have to give this a try.
Sega game video? On the internet?....you guys are gonna get *** sued.
And here I was thinking that it was a fighting game instead of a beat-em-up action game...
does Tim have a cold? Also, I believe you guys that this is fun and all, but damn does this game look generic. The opening is just Darksiders 1 right?
Good look at the game. Nice, succinct, but informative. I didn't know it was $30.
This game is doomed at retail though; Sega isn't promoting it, and it's definitely one of the most niche and uneven products to have the Platinum name on it. Still, it's got at least one real interesting-looking thing in that Deathball mode.
I tell you what Sega; convince Platinum to release THAT as a standalone on XBLA and PSN, preferably for $10 or so, and I'll buy THAT. Don't want the whole thing. MadWorld was a massive disappointment (for reasons I won't get into here); this looks like a repetitive grind too, and an unlikeable package in general (this universe just isn't cool, guys. Sorry). Not to mention, even with the budget price, it's coming out so close to DmC. I also have Xmas games to work through still. AND stuff like Ninokuni is coming soon too. This is going to be ignored...
But that Deathball thing does look cool :)
Oh, and Stephen Blum. That's the voice actor. He's everywhere - the voice of the main character in Bulletstorm, he's got to be, like, 3 Transformers in the Cybertron games (and Starscream in Transformers Prime), he's the voice of Wolverine in everything... but he'll always be Spike Speigel, from Cowboy Bebop, to me. One of the most recognizable voices there is, along with Nolan North, Tara Strong and Jennifer Hale.
the voice actor tim was thinking of is steven blum
Cool test chamber, thanks for the Game Informin!
This game looks very interesting. I would like to try the game out sometime. I probably would never get into it but it was a very good look at it! The multiplayer mode was really awesome looking and Reiner's comment about the stage was hilarious. It reminded me more of the griftball of Halo though. Good Test Chamber!
