The Digital Fix gave the PlayStation 3 version a score of seven out of ten and said that "its successes far outweigh its failings and for every frustration such as the pitch black sequence (where you have to set yourself on fire to find your way out) there are multiple moments of humour backed up by a solid combat system. It's not going to change the shape of gaming or be remembered forever but it far exceeds any claims that the body destruction element is a gimmick and nothing more. NeverDead deserves to be played but a sequel only deserves to happen if Konami and Rebellion give Bryce the world and freedom you will want to see him in." Digital Spy gave the Xbox 360 version a score of three stars out of five and called it "a prime example of a game that conjures an excellent premise, but then destroys it with poor design choices. We don't play games to be exhausted, we play them to have fun, and there are just too many moments in this game that feel like a chore." The Escapist similarly gave it a score of three stars out of five and said, "NeverDead does try something new and original, but its mechanics are unpolished and poorly implemented." However, 411Mania gave it a score of 4.5 out of 10 and said it was "very predictable and uninspired." GameZone gave the PS3 version 3.5 out of 10 and said, "We had high hopes for NeverDead, especially after seeing it at E3, but the end result falls apart as quickly as Bryce does. The gameplay never really develops a structure that leads to any fun, and the presentation's flaws are hard to overlook. You should easily brush this zombie killer aside in favor of Dante, even if that means reverting back to Devil May Cry 4."

William Faulkner once famously wrote, "The past is never dead. It's not even past." I've been thinking a lot about that quote, which comes from his 1951 novel Requiem for a Nun, in regards to today's guest, George Dawes Green.
If my father or ancestor did something, I didn't do it, why am I guilty? As William Faulkner has said, "The past is never dead. It's not even past." The sins of our forebears structure this world. So, it's not enough to say, "I didn't do it," when I still live off the structure of the world their sins made. It is a season of fasting and Jesus, in this passage, tells us not to fast, but he also has this line about putting a patch on a piece of cloth, "An old piece of cloth can't accommodate a new patch," He says, "it'll just make worse, because when the unshrunk cloth shrinks, it'll pull at a tear."
Panned at release by most review outlets in January 2012, most agreeing that it was an amusing story but a mediocre game, Neverdead is available on PS3 and Xbox 360, and provides hours of goofy dark humour, giddy ultra-violence and snarky dialogue. 781b155fdc
