Capcom God Hand
Mix purple Chihuahuas, outrageous bosses, absurd dialogue, oodles of beat 'em up action, and one of the most incoherent stories ever put into a video game and normally you'd get a mess.
- Quirky and fun
- Not a lot of substance
We had fun romping through God Hand's quirky post-apocalyptic world and it certainly has enough going for it to scratch your itch for some mindless action. But it's more suited as a light snack and won't satisfy your hunger for a gourmet feast of beat-'em-up goodness.
Price$ 79.95 (AUD)
Mix purple Chihuahuas, outrageous bosses, absurd dialogue, oodles of beat 'em up action, and one of the most incoherent stories ever put into a video game and normally you'd get a mess. But when Capcom gets involved, you get a deliciously over the top brawler called God Hand.
The story in God Hand is almost intentionally stupid, but instead of taking away from the game, it actually adds an unexpected dimension of humour. Much like a "so bad it's good" B-movie, you will find yourself laughing out loud at the insanity. You'd have to be missing a pulse not to chuckle at one-liners such as "You can 'wax on wax off' all you like big guy, but I'm still kicking your ass!"
The beat-'em-up gameplay in God Hand is also surprisingly entertaining, with an off-beat flavor and moves guaranteed to tickle your funny bone. You can stomp your opponents into the ground, spank them with an E. Honda like quickness and baseball bat them into the stratosphere. It all works well within the confines of the game's demented world.
Unfortunately, once the novelty of the game's wacky premise wears off, there isn't much substance left to keep you hooked. And the graphics in God Hand don't quite live up to the standard set by other Capcom games such as Devil May Cry. The music in the game will also drive you crazy, with a blatant rip-off of the Hawaii Five-O theme that loops endlessly. Also, if you didn't have carpal tunnel prior to playing God Hand, you certainly will afterwards: turbo-button mashing is the norm in this game.

The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.
The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
