New screens and hairy multiplayer details arrive for Bayonetta 2

I don’t think there’ll ever be another game development studio like Platinum games. And that’s a good thing. This is a studio that even when it fires a dud, manages to turn the mundane into a galaxy-level extinction event. Bayonetta was one such game that went over the top, came back around, and did several more loops through the insanity wheel. And the sequel wants you to share that madness with friends.

The Bayonetta:Bloody Fate anime looks crazy

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.

E3 2013: Bayonetta 2 is easy to touch

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 titles that Nintendo needs

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 Review – Sons of Anarchy

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 on PS3 was a failure for Platinum

 

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.

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U exclusive

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.

Sega puts Bayonetta on hiatus

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.

Bayonetta “Unveils” set to hit the Tokyo Game Show this week

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 we’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?

Gaming’s 10 hottest female characters

Yesterday, we brought you a list of gaming’s hottest dudes, brought to you by local pop culture blogger Noelle Adams, better known to her swathes of adoring fans as pfangirl. We chose her because she’s got her finger on the pulse of what’s hot in modern media, and knows a fine piece of man-ass when she sees it. We could easily have just gotten our own Ian Felmore to do the list, but apparently he was having his nails done. Today we bring you the sexiest girls in gaming, although why I’ve been chosen to do this is beyond me. Those of you who possess a strong enough constitution to follow my Twitter feed would know that I get turned on by just about anything. Unlike Noelle, I have chosen a character that’s entered the video game realm from other media, mostly because I can. I’ve tried to avoid fighting game femmes, who seem to be designed to be overtly sexual, sporting that slow-motion boob physics that made Baywatch one of the most popular TV shows ever made. Yes, I’m looking at you, Dead or Alive. As with the last one, this list is highly subjective – so don’t come moaning to me wondering why your favourite isn’t on my list. Here are my 10, in no particular order.

Anarchy Reigns gets skin-tight

Last year developer Platinum Games and publisher SEGA released the fluid, intuitive and ultimately satisfying Bayonetta, now they are back with the online combat brawler, Anarchy Reigns. Anarchy Reigns is expected to be released later this year and already has fans excited with some brawler gameplay, details on the variety of modes and an ever growing character list. Now Platinum Games have just released details of the newest heroine, and I’ll give you one guess who she looks like. Hit the jump to find out.

Vanquish To Be The Same Across Both Platforms

Platinum Games’ Vanquish, their over-the-top, insane, slick 3rd person shooter looks pretty damned amazing so far. Platinum Games’ last gem Bayonetta was considerably worse on the PS3 than its Xbox counterpart. Considering that Vanquish’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.

Awesome videogame Demakes

As a gamer raised on a diet of 8 and 16 bit games, their general aesthetic invokes an overwhelming sense of nostalgia. Things like this though – combining my love of modern games with the heady wistfulness of bygone eras – make me giddy. After the jump you’ll find a collection of videogame demakes created by Swedish artist Junkboy. – pieces of videogame art in which new games are made to look as if they’d been released many years previous. They’re all pretty damned awesome, and some of them are frightfully clever – particularly Red Dead Redemption. If you’ll recall, Red Dead Revolver was originally a Capcom property before being acquired by Rockstar. Its been demade to look like Gun.Smoke, Capcom’s 1985 Western-themed arcade and NES shooter. Scroll slowly, and see if you can name them all!

Vanquish gets n00b Mode

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 “Casual Auto”. Like the developer’s last game, Bayonetta, Vanquish will still be fun for people who’re less adept with a controller.

The PS3 is a Sports Car to the Xbox 360’s Mundane vehicle

Regarding the HD consoles’ architecture, Platinum’s Atsushi Inaba – 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.
