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.

Armada’s E3 picks – Gamescom Edition: Cuphead (in Don’t Deal with the Devil)

 

You though it was over, nope, because Gamescom happened two weeks ago and guess what? It also dealt with games. If there’s anything the Video Game Armada deals with its games, so for one more week we talk about upcoming titles before officially launching into the Fall of Games next week. Cuphead (in Don’t Deal with the Devil) is a unique game that looks like it’s from a movie short from the prohibition era. Cuphead and Mugman are the protagonists in the game, which means there might be two player fun as well. They seemly go up against a madball, an angry flower, a bat, and a pirate in their trailers but I’m sure there will be more crazy cartoon combatants on the horizon. Other than that there not much info on the game except that it will be similar to contra & other 2D side scrolling shooters; and that the game’s animation is hand drawn and painted in like style to get that authentic look. Now I’m all for games look like art (because they are) but I hope it plays as well as it looks – we’ll find out next year.
