Thanks for providing such a great introspective of this game, so many people just write off TSA:NM as a bland spin-off when really it provides so much for Suda51 fans. I hope Suda51 discovers your channel.

you know what's interesting? each of your reviews in No More Heroes, is longer than the last one. One could see it as how each installment is more to add to his, very weird, story of him as a character.

If I gave myself more time to work on it, the NMH1 analysis probably would've been way longer than it ended up being. Probably not as long as this one, Travis Strikes Again gives you so much to look into.

Amazing video, thanks for telling it all, it gave me even more perspectives of one of my favorite games this year. And thank you for sharing your feelings of the game at the end.

I have a feeling that the space portion of Killer Marathon was an idea scrapped from *Killer Is Dead*, since the last missions took place on the moon.

This game is great because Jeane berates Travis for not having a passport and barely bathing

I have faith in NMH 3, too. The player is like Travis when he goes up to the ramen stand. We say "give me your best " and pay for a Suda game, and we know Suda will give us the best experience he can. There's a good chance I'll never meet Suda in person but through his game it feels like I've made a connection with him. The feeling of respect creators have for their consumers is rare. It's definitely not easy to make something as personal as TSA but by doing so his fans can learn and appreciate more about him and his studio. I think that's why his fans are so loyal.

I honestly loved the Travis Strikes Back and Badman Strikes Back segments because Badman is more serious and plot driven well Travis is more comedic for the most part. I just wish there was more Badman Strikes Back content but the overall story was enjoyable enough for the six parts

What is the song that comes on at 14:37? It seems so familiar but I can't place it.

"Lazy fan theory"? The game flatout tells you how the fuck the Death Drive works and what it was made for, there isn't really any ambiguity to it, why'd you think the minibosses are all SHEEPmen? Sheep aka the first animal to be successfully cloned.
Sibel - 14 days ago
@GhenryPerez Yeah, travis has killed lots of people, so it doesn't really make a difference
GhenryPerez - 16 days ago
SOUNDS like. I said it SOUNDS like lazy fan theories. I understand the aspect to that narrative, and I don't like it. Pay attention.

This was such an amazing video until you started talking about how Travis sucked
Alexir3468 - 12 days ago
@Sibel why not both?
Sibel - 12 days ago
@Alexir3468 I think he was meant to LOOK awesome, not necessarily be awesome.
Alexir3468 - 15 days ago
@GhenryPerez I don't think suda intended it, since he praises Travis so much in his games and makes him look super cool with the way he kills bosses and does things like that, and also how the TSA bosses call him badass, and Travis calls himself badass, and Suda calls him badass. And yeah flawed characters are good but I think in this case Travis is just supposed to be awesome.
GhenryPerez - 16 days ago
An unlikable protagonist doesn't mean they are poorly written or "suck." Travis being an unlikable character is what Suda fully intended, and part of what makes him such a great character. Character flaws are what help people identify and relate with them. Don't take things at such a surface level, please. The best characters in media, especially video games, are full of flaws that make them unique.
Alexir3468 - 16 days ago
@GhenryPerez You talked about how unlikable he is. You didn't directly say it but it was the same general notion.

I'd like to see something like Deadly Individualism with other Game designers like Hideo Kojima and Yoko Taro, I see designers like them have interesting stories like Suda51, specially Yoko Taro.
ksemanr - 19 days ago
I love Travis Strikes Again so much, I don't understand the hate. I think it was simply because NMH3 hadn't been announced yet, if it was people would've taken to something different more easily

Finally got a chance to sit down and watch this video in full. Loved it--can't wait for you to look at some of Suda's older work!

This game really feels "I need to rethink myself" from the main character/creator's perspective. The more I see the story, the deeper it feels.
Alyxandir - 25 days ago
I don't think I would have appreciated this game half as much if not for seeing your other videos before I played it. ESPECIALLY the Shadows of the Damned video

To me the main thing that I really loved was with Smoking Kings dialogue cause from the time that hit me cause of the fact I didnt get what Suda was going for since I didnt play a whole lot of his games I did get what the bosses were however. To me Smoking King got what he wanted yet didnt felt achievement now, I relate to him cause as a kid I really wanted a job. getting said job was hell and took until I was 23 and when I got it all I did was simply do what I was supposed to for the most part and that was washing dishes as a dishwasher. However despite me saying that in a boring light the thing I loved about it was most of my co workers are great and my bosses I can get along well easily. I dont want to replace that at all trust me people can make a boring job a lot more comfortable or hellish.

I played TSA at a friends place and I did not enjoy it, I think it was because of the mood I was in or not liking the gameplay but I do want to go back to it and play it properly some day. That being said I really could not imagine how deep this game is when it comes to the connection between it and Sunda51, it really makes me admire this game more and it does make me worry for No More Heroes 3. As much as I enjoyed seeing it reveal at E3 2019 with how this videos insight it makes me think we may get something VERY different for the next game.

Thanks, Ghenry. I appreciate all the work you've put into the Deadly Individualism series.
The biggest takeaway I have from TSA is that for all the accolades and praise we heap upon Suda51, he's a normal dude like you and I. His struggles, failures, regrets are all things we can relate to, especially in light of him expressing them in a video game format. And seeing NMH3 has been announced, I can't help but feel so very happy for him. It's like seeing that trailer was an affirmation of all the time and effort he's put into the craft of video game making.

Suda wanted more people to experience his creation. However, with Nintendo at the helm with Grasshopper listed as a client of their's I don't see NMH3 leaving Nintendo Switch unless Nintendo says so.

We need that money to pay for NMH3 and Unreal games are more easy to port for other plataforms nowdays(but not always work well). And maybe do more people buy a switch for no more heroes 3?

I thoroughly enjoyed this entire series, man! I sat through all of them when each came out and they all gave me a bigger appreciation for Suda or any game developer for the matter. Awesome job.

I actually thought it was possible the alien invasion we're facing in NMH3 is being led by possessed Mondo because Suda confirmed an invasion was coming to Killer is Dead after the events of the game and now Travis is facing just that.
Sudaverse rules!

TSA is different compared with previous two. No surprise it didn't sit with some people. I would say third game is time for something different. I am just puzzled about developers choice of mask for Jacket. Tiger is commonly associated with Tony. They could've used TSA:NMH to his real face.

Good job! You and the GamingBrit gave a great explanation on what TSB is all about! kinda sad that "Professionals" like Jim Sterling will just trash the game for not being like one of the more crazy cooky grasshopper titles.
maggintons - 29 days ago
Honestly the reviewers who said nothing interesting happened were probaly playing the game like Arin Hanson would.

Will you be taking about No More Heroes 3 in the future?
GhenryPerez - 29 days ago
Yeah, probably.
King Knight is best Knight
I don't even know how people can say that it was the worst NmH Game. It had the best Controls, a fun Multyplayer that made fun and cool Bosses and Abilitys that you can collect that are all named after Gundams. The Story was a bit weak but the Retro Textadventures were pretty funny. Not to mention that it was never advertised as NmH3 but as a Spinnoff and People hyped them self up on there own Lies.

I just realized that Darksiders genesis is sorta taking the route of TSA and going in very different (top-down) style of gameplay compared to it's previous entrees, and from what I've seen, their fans seem to be OK with it. It just made me a little sad when I thought about how ridiculous a lot of people were being for TSA despite calling themselves "fans."
Thanks for adding another rant for this video, I really liked hearing someone acknowledge how stupid the feedback for this game was.

@GhenryPerez exactly! Even if it might not be for you (didn't care for the art change in 3), you should respect and let creators try new things less people complain about something going stale. Hell, this is why creators don't try new things anymore, because of people like that. Thank god for people like Suda though!
GhenryPerez - Month ago
I've only played Darksiders 1, but I have to say it's ridiculous if people really are complaining about that new spinoff game. 3 JUST came out, and from what I saw, is a pretty damn true successor to their formula. What's wrong with a little spinoff to tide things over?

With this series reaching its (current) conclusion, I can't wait for your video essay where you explore the rich narrative and themeing of YIIK: A Postmodern RPG

There's one small thing about the badman intro with Dan Smith in it that I love, as much if a stretch it might be, but it's Dan's baseball speech.
" Listen, Birkin. The score is zero-to-nothing. Two outs, bottom of the ninth. You're up to bat. Three balls and two strikes. You're up against the wall. The next pitch decides the game. It's either kill or be killed....This is your final ball...Don't end up getting beaned now."
First off I like to think that with Dan being an allegory for Killer 7, Suda's personal Magnum opus, and Badman, literally the newest character and the reason TSA starts, It's basically Suda telling himself that he's at his wits end, fighting with himself (bating up against the wall), but you got one last chance. Just don't go hurting yourself doing it.

I was working on doing so, but Pix 'n' Love (the writing team/publisher of the book) said they're working on making an English release happen. They'll likely do a better job than I could have.
