The Only Color That Matters is Red: Celebrating MadWorld
When folks think about Nintendo and its systems, nostalgia, happy characters and kid-friendly storylines probably come to mind. At the very raciest of the Nintendo spectrum, a game that draws its visual style from graphic novels such as Frank Miller’s Sin City and embraces over-the-top brutality like a longtime friend probably still seems well out of left field. It felt that way back in 2009 too, but that didn’t stop Sega and PlatinumGames from unleashing MadWorld on the Nintendo Wii. Though it was somewhat controversial back at launch, today we celebrate the classic 3D brawler that hit the Wii like a running chainsaw and left us loving its sardonic hero: Jack Cayman.
