Well I just beat the game Madworld and I gotta say it was a pretty awesome game, so I decided to make a respect thread for it and this is technically the fifth one I will be contributing to the CBR (with about only one of them being complete) and please note most of the vids posted here will be from boss fights and blood bath challenges (in-level mini-games). Also I will not be using timing notes for ALL the stuff shown in the vids, since they mostly happen by whether the player chooses to initiate the actions for Jack or not and there may been feats from bosses that exist, but didn't show in the vid, only cause the player killed them before they got the chance to show it. And onto the introduction, folks! Also do not read this thread if you haven't played the game yet.
Madworld is a 2009 beat-em-up game made by Sega where the plot is that you play as an anti-heroic protagonist named Jack Cayman, who was formerly a marine, sent on a mission to investigate a conspiracy behind Varragan City's closed contact from the outside world and transformation into a stage for a gameshow called DeathWatch by a terrorist group named "The Organizers" as well as the issue of a virus and vaccine being released. He fights through different parts of Jefferson island on his lonesome and uncovers clues of such twisting events. The premise and gameplay of Madworld is a bit similar to No More Heroes, only with different controls, more battle creativity, and the atmosphere is much darker and edgier.
And now onto the main attraction of this respect thread...
Yes the protagonist of this game is a participant of the DeathWatch rising to become number 1 as an ex-marine turned into a bloodthirsty mechanic of some sort. His appearance and personality is a bit like Hellboy's and like typical anti-heroes, he's cruel, sadistic, sarcastic, witty, and has little to no room for a genuine code of honor. He also fights with a prosthetic chainsaw arm and often uses other weapons as well as the hazards of any environment to his own creativity and style for killing his opponents.
For goodness sake, all the mooks he fought were: punks, thugs, Asians (Not being racist, but they're mostly claw warriors and fire dancers I think), ninjas (yes you heard me), zombies, werewolves, "storm-troopers", and grey aliens.
As far as feats are concerned, the most basic things you could expect from this guy would be slicing enemies of all kinds apart in a second, lifting up things as heavy as barrels/oil drums/multiple subway station seats/crates/giant pottery/tables/etc. with ease, spinning people 360 degree's several times and throwing them out, piledriving people, punching people up into mid-air, survive falls, and other stuff I may have missed in gameplay.
The three following vids below are just tutorials to show you samples of what Jack does on daily basis:
-From 4:53 to 4:55 in Basic Tutorials Part 1, Jack demonstrates he has enough physical strength to at least wreck nearby cars and this could also be done without using an enemy to replicate the damage.
-From 1:31 to 1:33 in Basic Tutorials Part 2, Jack casually impales a mook's head with a signpost.
-From 2:20 to 2:26 in Basic Tutorials Part 2, Jack can grabs a person and spins so fast the the legs of the person are straight in the air and throws him off by a relatively long distance.
-From 2:08 to 2:12 in Basic Tutorials Part 3, Jack demonstrates being strong enough to snap a person's spine hard enough to tear up the whole body.
And you'll also notice there's something called Bloodbath Challenges which are gruesome mini-games that our Jack participates in most levels and the recurring gag is that the host (who is also a pimp wearing blackface) of these games, the Black Barron, is always involuntarily used by his consort Mathilda as an example of how such gory and bloody games are "played" and for some reason he comes coming back every time he dies for every of these challenges demonstrated in the game. These are games where Jack has to dispatch as many mooks in certain ways within the time limit.
The Turbinator: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pcko66rsKJM
This is the first BloodBath challenge Jack faces and during a cutscene, The Black Baron gets thrown by Mathilda into a giant jet engine being sliced and diced into bits after finishing explaining the game, only to come back later for another bloodbath challenge.
The rule of the game is to toss as many mooks into the engine as you can and here Jack shows some resistance to the air current from the engine itself.
Rocket Reamer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B097OxPNV_M
The Black Baron gets thrown by his consort into the way of a speeding train after explaining that the rules of this game is to throw as many mooks into the railroad tracks to get them run over as possible.
Death Press: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S7l97xp4Hh4&NR=1
The Black Baron gets thrown into a platform on the receiving end of a death press after explaining the rules of this game is to throw as many mooks into the platform and have the death press kill as many of them as possible.
Man Darts: (Skip to 1:40) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WSS9NMTOwNY
The Black Baron gets slammed by Mathilda's spike bat right into the center of a giant dart-board (man she's got good aim!) after explaining the rules of the game is to bat as many mooks onto the dartboard as possible and the closer the hit was to the center, the more points. This vid here truly reflects on Jack's aiming skills (if the player happened to get it right that is).
Money Shot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6SSRkZTEc68
The Black Baron gets his mouth stuck with a Peking Pop bottle by his consort and as a result of the carbonated propelling force, he launches high up into the air and gets impaled onto the spike of a giant cardboard naked woman's left breast after explaining that the rules of the game is to stick Peking Pop bottles into the mouths of mooks and successfully launch them onto any spike censoring the giant naked cardboard women's breasts and genitalia for points.
The Black Baron gets himself stuck into a firecracker tube and launches like high up into the sky and perishes within the explosion after explaining that the rules of the game is to chuck mooks into all the firecracker tubes (as much as possible) for points. Jack just dumps the ninjas into the tubes. Nothing THAT special there.
Man Golf: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xj1pwbFcdTI
The Black Baron gets himself pinned down to the ground and had his head lopped off by Mathilda's golf club right into a target after explaining that the rules of the game is to swing as many as mook's heads into the targets and this demonstrates that Jack does indeed have skill when aiming people's heads into air targets by taking their heads off with a golfclub.
Death Press II: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxPGlWThciU
The Black Baron gets smushed into a real bloody mess when his consort throws him onto the palm of a giant moving hand after explaining that the rule of the game is to throw as many as mooks as possible into the giant hand's palm for squishing as possible and if you notice the Black Baron is still able to mutter "sh!t n#gga sh!t" even when he's dripping like a galloon of blood like a waterfall. This is actually an easy bloodbath challenge since the hand does most of the killing. It seems the giant hand is like a more homicidal bloodythristy lost cousin of Master Hand from the SSB series.
Road Rampage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mu4vGWTBvs
The Black Baron gets run over and punted up high into the air by Mathilda charging on a motorcycle (you might say low-level speedblitz) after explaining the rules is to kill as many mooks (the grey aliens) by running them over with your motorcycle and boy does Jack kick ass when it comes to a motorcycle fight.
Money Shot II: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zcv2BDa-KWE
Same thing as Money Shot I, except it's with Grey Aliens. Pretty freaky, eh?
Man Darts II: (Skip to 0:55) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C8jhKwi3WB0
Same thing as Man Darts I, except you take out different waves of mooks in the following order: Punks/Thugs, Asians (which are once again claw warriors and fire spewers), Ninjas, Zombies, "Storm-Troopers", and finally the Greys, though you can already stop the vid at 4:53.
