Asura's Wrath & Doodles

Really got in to my drawing today, just doing random doodles mainly and then eventually getting in to a bit of work on a personal project I've been working on these past few weeks.
I did some pretty good work until my damn pen ran out for which I dont have any ink left over.
I'm going to see if the chemist near my house sells syringes so I can re-fill the empty cartridges I have from the bottle of Indian ink I have.

For anyone who recognises the happy looking man with spiky hair in the page full of random doodles, I played the Asura's Wrath demo the other day.
I've really been looking forward to the game, its incredible over the top-ness really caught my interest.
Its like Dragon Ball Z on some kind of hallucinogenic drug.

The demo really ruined a lot of my excitement though.
The game is every bit as crazy as I was hoping it would be, and I really like the visuals of the game, but the actual gameplay was horribly underwhelming.

I was expecting it to be a little bit like God of War but with 90% of the game revolving around the huge fights like the Hydra or the Poseidon fight at the start of the third game.

I really cant stand that weird lock-on shooting mechanic, and it seems like everything was just repeating a few actions until you had done it enough to earn a QTE.

The game could still be pretty fun, but I think its been knocked down from an eagerly anticipated game to a wait til its cheap on a sale game.

Tis a shame.
