Bayonetta came out almost a month ago, and since then I have seen little interest in Kamiya's newest beauty (I believe I'm the only one who posted it in "Latest Purchases, you should be ashamed). So I figured I'd try to generation a little interest. I've been playing it all morning, my first real opportunity since I got my 360 back on Friday, and I'm currently on Chapter 3.
After playing the PS3 demo, I thought, "Hey, this is pretty fun", but believe me when I say what you see in the demo isn't even a fraction of the crazy this game will put you through in the first portion of the game alone. Everything is ridiculously and hilariously over the top, it's like Devil May Cry on crack.
Also I know what a lot of people are thinking, "a senseless button mash fest can't be that much fun". I don't know what to say to that since there's no way you can even get a glimpse of the full experience without buying the full game. However it should be known that the combos are tons of fun to execute, and everything flows incredibly well. Doing shitloads of damage and seeing everything around you explode also feels as awesome as it sounds. As Mage_Mccloud said in the PS3 Thread, believe the hype.
Did I mention the game is also stuffed to the brim with brilliant references to other SEGA and Capcom games? I've already heard copious nods to the likes of Resident Evil, Devil May Cry, Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and even Sonic the friggin Hedgehog. One power up even turns Bayonetta into a panther that runs just like Ammy, jumps just like Ammy, and leaves (somewhat ghastly) flowers behind her, just like Ammy.
Please talk about Bayonetta and her crazy legs here. And for you worrying PS3 owners, SEGA have already patched the game improving loading times and framerate, especially if you install. More fixes probably on the way.
tl;dr: please buy Bayonetta as a way of thanking Hideki Kamiya for Okami.
Discuss. In the meantime I'm going to go and get my brain melted some more. Dancing a-gogo baby!
