    In Shank 2 you can play as 5 unlockable female characters unlike the first game where there wasn't any additional characters

    So for the ones who played it , Is there any ryona in that game ?

    It's a very fun game. Pretty light on ryona, though. Character deaths are pretty instantaneous and they aren't dwelled upon. You do get to kick the crap out of a sexy sorceress cult leader (the boss of the fourth level), though.

    Anyone else love these games? Lots of zako-fodder to dispose of. Lots. Which is the icing on the cake on top of already fantastic games. I'll post some screenshots if people are interested.

    Here's an official comic I've just discovered featuring some of the zako as they appear in game: warning, contains gore etc.

    Mark Of The Ninja is also by Klei, but I don't know if it has any zako (yet).

    Seen footage of the first Shank and there were truckloads of female enemies to obliterate on that. Good to see the opportunity is carried on in the sequel.

    Brilliant find.

    Ironically her fate was probably meant to ensure the delicate sensibilities of readers wouldn't be too offended at seeing a woman unambiguously killed by the hero (unlike her fellow male goons). Though even in the cartoonish nature of the comic she won't be surviving that sort of blood loss!

    I think they are totally hot in both games, and 'nasty bitches' what with their unpleasant attitude and all the dialogue. There's quite a few variations, including prostitute-eque varieties and nurses in the 2nd game. There's good scenes and set-ups in both games, so they are worth worth playing 100%. In the first game, the zako with uzi's could actually spray other enemies when trying to attack you, typical desperately-unpleasant--YetOhSoSexy-bitchy-zako behaviour. There's also a co-op campaign with leather clad biker-type zako in the first game, but unfortunately offline only.

    Whoever wrote that on the TVtropes sounds a little uncomfortable finding it appealing ... guess we are only supposed to be attracted to the heroines (and at a push) main villainesses eh guys? :cool2:

    If you guys were interested in grabbing Shank 2, it's currently the humble bundle weekly sale. Can pay 1cent to play it if you want, otherwise it's only a dollar for the steam key. Cheers. Lots of female characters in there.
