** It's just a bit of FollowTheLeader: This game was probably being developed when everyone was talking about {{Stranglehold}} and {{Grindhouse}}, and this game seems to take a bit from Column A and Column B.

* Okay... the style the game uses is really based in the Hong Kong action films of the 80s and early 90s or so -- the sort of gunplay acrobatics and slow-motion we see were, as far as I know, really pioneered there... but its PaintingTheFourthWall evokes a much older theater experience... maybe about the 70s or 60s. Am I missing something? Is it just a case of the developers being hit with NewerThanTheyThink? Or am I getting an OlderThanTheyThink issue? Or something else entirely?

** I think the point was to have an action movie motif. They probably figured that the best way to get that across was to use the older movie theater experience. YourMileageMayVary, of course.

** You can't really hit targets far away when you're blind, now can you? And when they're close enough... why waste bullets?

* Tarantula has submachine guns. How come she never shoots them? She only really uses the bayonets.
