Games and Gear (of E3 2017): Cuphead (Don’t Deal with the Devil)


For really this time! Hopefully… Maybe… Cross your fingers…






Armada’s E3 picks: Cuphead in “Don’t Deal with the Devil” (2016)


So back in February I put Cuphead “in Don’t Deal with the Devil” as our Games of 2015, unfortunately that was a little premature as during this year’s E3 the release date for Cuphead was pushed back to 2016. What the heck Studio MDHR! I want to play as an cup/mug headed hero (?) that is basically a puppet of the devil to take down the most vilest, no good, dirty, rotten, scumbag that the cartoon 1930’s can throw at me. Also I want to take Backlash with me and co-op the game and take down this colorful cutthroats as a team. And speaking of color, I want to enjoy the awesomely frantic and vibrant world that you guy created. Man I want to play it right now! *sigh* Ok, Studio MDHR you get one more pass this year, but if you make me wait one more time for Cuphead then I’ll break all my cups/mugs in protest – yes all of them.




Games & Gear of 2015: Cuphead (2015)



People this is why I don’t work with demons, they’re treacherous, they’re evil, they’re mean, and they cheat at the deals they make. Take the game Cuphead for example: see Cuphead and his friend Mugman were having a grand night out gambling – however they were gambling with the devil! So as you can guess they end up losing their heads (i.e. their souls, I guess) and the only way to get them back it to retrieve several items from very dangerous people. And if the devil says they’re dangerous that’s the only thing you believe from him. So that’s the cautionary tale / story of Cuphead – and unfortunately we got to clean up the mess, players have to use their cup skills to defeat different, but highly tough, baddies throughout the game. Will we be able to earn Cuphead’s Cup head back or will he await an eternity of infernal tea parties. We all find out later this year.
