    WTF? Longsword drunken monk style. A wasted character slot, it makes no sense.

    Probably to fill that meme character slot and/or because of plot.

    If they had to do that, I'd done it with a weapon that would've otherwise been hard to fit into the swordfighting game. As it is, indeed redundant and waste.

    It's kind of a cute concept, but it doesn't really make any sense in a context where they seem to have been striving so much for realism and simulation.

    I like it. Every fighting game needs "the weird guy". It's like a law of nature or something.

    Considering that Hellish Quart is now mostly a sword dueling game (though other weapons were planned from what i remember together with dual wielding) it would be like using zweihander in prisoner knife fights.

    Cool character. But I'd prefer he were a serious character, without being drunk. A old cleric with a longsword with his church as a stage is interesting enough.

    Dude, EVERYONE was drunk ALL THE TIME in XVII century Poland.
    It's actually weird that he's the only drunk in the roster!

    It's a testament to how good this all looks that folks are grasping at such pitiful straws to complain about.

    Bought it and played for 30 mins, it's quite decent for the price + it's still in the making. The best part is obviously the motion capture itself + the physics. Gameplay perhaps not so much.

    Well i just think it gets old really quickly, but this is very much personal taste, these games are probably fun for those who really wants to master it, or perhaps really fun in player vs player... i really love the spectacle of this, how brutal it can be, but to me these fighting games just aren't that fun to play, never been a fan apart perhaps in the C64 days..

    Not too sold on the right of way mechanic but at least it's optional.
