Joystiq's impressions of the Japanese version:

Spoiler

http://playstation.j...ming-in-august/

The game may be going the route of Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman! and going PSN exclusive, which would make sense for this kind of game. Also, there should an English demo coming in August so you can try it out yourselves.

Rolento will be happy about the news of potential PSN exclusivity, at least. ;)

Wish they'd have kept the "Hero for 30 Seconds" name. "Half-Minute Hero" just sounds cheesy.

The demo was pretty cool. Seems to be more fun for me than Holy Badman.

well, it can be more fun partially because it's such a different gameplay style. only thing similar is the aesthetics.

The demo is a riot. Someone said "oh noes".

If it gets a $10 PSN release (or a UMD release), I'll probably buy it.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Hey, at least they're stocking it. I would've bought Badman for $30 had it been a real copy.

My exact sentiment. Definitely picking this up!

Sweet.

The best part about these demos is that they're small enough to download directly to my PSP. I don't have to do the USB shuffle.

I'll try it out tonight.

You have to have the latest firmware to even log in to the PSN Store.

Not with a PS3 or PC to grab the demo either of those ways.

I finally got through the second part of the first demo and then through the second demo, which was a lot of fun. I guess it's coming next week, so I'm looking forward to getting it alongside Uncharted 2.

Here's a quick look from Giant Bomb of all of the initially unlocked modes: http://www.giantbomb...e-hero/17-1440/

Just got this today and it's a lot of fun. I've only played through Hero 30 VII, but it's nice to be able to carry equipment between stages now.

It sucks that this isn't done in-game, but there is an online leaderboard website for this game (http://www.halfminuteheroes.com/). I'm not doing too bad based on my first times, though there isn't much competition.

YOU > EVIL

God damn this game is the tits. I'm only up to Level V (played about 30 minutes total) but I am having a blast. I don't quite understand how the target times are achieved - the fastest I can do a level is about 90 seconds and some of the target times are 1/3 of that! Great concept for a game - every RPG fan (which I'm not really) should give this a try.

I made it to Level XV yesterday and my play time is about an hour and a half. It is still very fun. I have a feeling I'll be going back to the levels to try and get better times and be more efficient. I haven't quite gotten the feel for leveling up equipment and weapons yet (I've just been buying the stuff at the stores) but as far as I can tell this is the stuff you are allowed to carry over from mission to mission (not backwards in time though). I will be playing a TON over the next week since I'll be on vacation.

40 bucks for the d/l version? Are you serious? I thought 30 was steep for the UMD... guess I'll just have to wait for a UMD sale... give me a break guys.

This game is so very good. I haven't been adicted to a game like this in a long time. I finished it up in 3 days, putting about 12 hours into it. Loved every minute.

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.
