No More Heroes/Wanted

>Both game and movie/comic have some good ideas
>Lightsaber staffs, Curved Bullets, cool ass characters
>Nice enemies, story, etc
Makes you think combining these would make a surpassing work for the boys and Ennis in general. Why did it never happen?

        Killer 7, a game created by the guy who made nmh, had a western adaptation that was so dog shot it didn't even finish its run
        Similar to the resident evil movies, I don't want anyone from the west adding in Travis to anything especially the boys

          I can infer what the first censor bar is covering but what's with the other ones? What is 'Naomi' from, what franchise/person is he a superfan of, and what's the magic girl anime on his shirt?

          Oh in hindsight the franchise is probably just スター・ウォーズ. Still stumped on the others

          The ports also took out Heavenly Star, and that *really* added a lot to the game's atmosphere

    Dude, No More Heroes was a huge-ass love letter to all of the nerdy hobbies that it trashes like mad but ultimately shows a tender love and respect for, especially since the main character actually grows up to be the hero that by all rights he shouldn't be. Wanted was literally the story of Mark Millar asking what kind of a loser would willingly buy a book about the adventures of a selfish unremarkable faceless twat that's not even remotely likeable or interesting due to the fact he's basically a morally repugnant Peter Pan.

    Yeah, no shit something like that would never happen.

      No reason to be rude if I didn't know about what it all meant. I just thought of it as a fun idea where someone on the internet came up with something like this: a sort of love letter for hobbies but at the same time somewhat deconstructing these ideas safely before reonstructing.

      Imagine not!travisfusedmoviewesley (aka trasley) telling us the reader that we probably need artists like millar and ennis put in a mental ward for their attitudes or some snappy comeback like that.

      Imagine all of that being a nerdy idea of killing SHITTY millar-esque heroes and villains just to make things a better place for a story.

      I want that, anon

        Honestly, it was less to be rude and more to emphasize that philosophically, the two works are absolutely incompatible at heart. That, and if you do genuinely really want to see what would happen if you combined Suda51's writing style with the cynicism and bleakness of a Millar or Ennis work, there's a work I highly recommend you check out.

        It was called "No More Heroes". And frankly, by itself it does the job far better than anything Millar or Ennis ever could, down to mocking the very conceit of a wannabe nerd turned badass killer hunting down a carnival of colorful crass lunatics...by having Travis not only start his murderous rampage out of pure boredom and continuing for the sake of pussy until the end, but by the fact that TRAVIS has to be the one to PAY OTHERS to live out his depraved fantasies by slaving away picking up trash and coconuts, mowing lawns and pumping gas like a pathetic wage cuck when he's not spending that money on anime merch and upgrades for his toys instead. Hell, one of his opponents is an indie film director that fights you in the costume of his own superhero persona as a direct parallel to what Travis is doing, and the dude's personality is essentially Homelander's but with even less self-control to boot.

        But for real, I do suggest you try it out if you want anything resembling your opening post, NMH is rather clunky but incredible for a reason.

            You will definitely need to muddle through the signals for motion controls, but yeah, it works on Dolphin. Granted, they also ported it to Switch and PC, but I 100% not wanting to shell out cash and see the original in all of its old drippy glory.

              Got it, and I could use a dualshock 4 like I can use it for rpcs3 and whatever?

              idk how hard the motion controls would be btw to bind?

                They've got tutorial vids all over, I think. NMH thankfully didn't put in a complicated amount of them outside of the qtes.

      No.

      >No More Heroes was a huge-ass love letter to all of the nerdy hobbie
      This is correct. The nips are so good at writing these love letters in their vidya, animation and comics it's insane.

    I don't think an animated adaptation would add much to NMH and it being a video game is a big part of what makes it work thematically

    This series isn't a serious drama or narrative. It's like 75% meta references. The big dramatic twist at the end of the first game has its audio speed up so you can't understand what is being said and is treated as tasteless drama within the narrative. The second game's big moment was a character dying only to be replaced by their identical brother later. Strikes again is just a giant meta commentary on the Creator's history as a game dev. The end to the recent game is probably going to be ignored by the next, or that was supposed to be the sendoff for the series.
    This series is a bunch of dressing designed around a creating a fun game. A comic would just feel like one of those unnecessary tie-ins like the Rick and Morty comics.

      Reminds me of when they did that promotional comic for Killer 7, and they went as literal as possible because the game is so fricked up that trying to go metaphorical would make it an unreadable mess. Besides, imo the original game already did the job of deconstructing the idea of a self-insert hero trying to be the biggest badass. Specifically, the way it parallels Travis's otaku obsessions to the bloodlust inherent in being a lifetime assassin where they're both signs of immense immaturity like in MGS, where the desire to accumulate useless feel-good trinkets and the desire to inflict sadistic violence on others are essentially distorted coping mechanisms used to distract one from confronting the real psychological issues driving you to a life of violence, and that the only real out is to essentially grow up and walk away.

      I imagine the only way they'd be able to copy that feeling is if the comic book was basically presented as a self-insert fiction of you the reader, with angles done in first person, as the POV character gratuitously slices his way through colorful killers that get forgotten as quickly as they're introduced, until he finally gets to Travis Touchdown...and gets his head sliced off one page later, because he's no more the hero than Travis is, and trying to live out your fantasies of being someone through a proxy lifestyle can be equally pathetic if you've got nothing to fall back on. But then, I don't know if that'd be a fun comic to read either, so who knows? Maybe it really is best left alone as a set of video games instead.

    I liked the mundane hub city of the first game.
