Every great Japanese video game needs an anime series. Or is that every great anime series needs a video game? I have no freakin’ idea, but what I do know, is that I can’t get enough of that witch. And until the sequel game arrives, this film should tide me over until then.
You look at the line up of games, and chances are that you’ll feel that a little too family friendly. Personally, I don’t have a problem with that, but if the Wii U console wants to attract a larger audience, it’s going to have to shed some blood. Or get gratuitous with the action. And buddy, Bayonetta 2 is both.
The Wii-U isn’t selling as well as Nintendo hoped and that is partly because a lot of people are waiting on the next Xbox and PlayStation 4 and partly on the current slate of games available for the platform. The guys and girls over at Neogaf have been putting their Photoshop skills to the test and have put together a bunch of gaming covers that they think will make the platform soar.
Anarchy Reigns is one of the cheesiest games in recent years. It’s limburger, gouda, mozzarella and various other assorted dairy products rolled up into one package of lactating violence and rap songs that will leave your head spinning and your thumbs broken. But if you happen to take a bite of that cheddar, you might just fall in love with it.
Bayonetta was released last year to pretty solid reviews on Xbox 360 and PS3 but the user experience on the PS3 version was fundamentally flawed with the Xbox 360 version being a far superior experience. The titles developers agree and describe it as their biggest failure.
The North American Nintendo conference from yesterday had quite a few surprises, most notably that us westerners would be getting our hands on the new console before the Japanese for once. It’s got a solid looking line-up so far, such as the tried and trusted Super Mario Bros, and NintendoLand. More games are on the way for the device, from Assassin’s Creed 3 to Lego City: Undercover. Oh, and some little game called Bayonetta 2, which will be exclusive to that platform.
Bad news everyone. For all you fans of leggy and leather-clad witches, you might want to brace yourself, as it appears that the sexy sorceress won’t be on the receiving end of a sequel to the popular 2010 game any soon, due to Sega having currently lost more money than a Paul McCartney marriage.
Additionally, thanks to a lack of support from the publisher towards the developer of the original game, Platinum Games, it now seems that the hairy witch has been put on indefinite hold.
Starting off 2010, Bayonetta had to be one of the highlights of the year. Smooth, addictive and exciting, the sexy action romp had all the qualities necessary to create a lasting impression on the genre.
And in in this industry, a successful and popular game usually gets a sequel, something that weâ€™ve heard nothing about for the popular super-witch librarian. But with the Tokyo Game Show taking place this week, can we expect some home ground announcements from Sega regarding the popular character?
Platinum Gamesâ€™ Vanquish, their over-the-top, insane, slick 3rd person shooter looks pretty damned amazing so far. Platinum Gamesâ€™ last gem Bayonetta was considerably worse on the PS3 than its Xbox counterpart. Considering that Vanquishâ€™s engine is built upon the framework constructed for Bayonetta, PS3 owners have valid reasons to be wary.
According to Hideaki Nakata, responsible for tuning the engine for PS3, those fears are unnecessary.
Suck at games? Vanquish might be the game for you.
Vanquish, the stylish, frantic, and quite frankly, insane shooter from Platinum Games will be getting a new difficulty mode, known as â€œCasual Autoâ€. Like the developerâ€™s last game, Bayonetta, Vanquish will still be fun for people whoâ€™re less adept with a controller.
Regarding the HD consolesâ€™ architecture, Platinumâ€™s Atsushi Inaba â€“ producer of Vanquish - reckons the PS3 is a sports car, while the 360 is more of your everyday vehicle.
He believes the PS3 has more horsepower, but the 360 offers more versatility.
