Any good?


Depends. It's in the same vein as Devil May Cry, what with the whole "being ridiculous just for the sake of being ridiculous" concept.

However, I thoroughly enjoy Bayonetta over DMC. It's just complex enough that you can finish the game if you know enough, but has loads more in store for those who really know what they're doing.

Unlimited continues (though dying hurts your overall rank for the chapter), fairly easy basic concepts, and a storyline that probably won't make a lot of sense but is in line with the absurdity of it all makes it a keeper IMO. However, if the silliness turns you off, you may want to stay the hell away from this. ;)

I can only speak for the PS3 version, but there is a demo of it available on PSN, so you can give it a try. Xbox360 has better graphics and loading times, though there are rumors that a patch is in the works for the PS3 so that the game will utilize the hard drive.

Right!
100 pages.. We've done it!
Now, with any luck this thread won't just die off, when they make us a new one, but even if it does, I will feel good about myself for having proposed a thread that was popular enough to reach 100 pages... some of the character threads haven't even done that.
We Rule!

PS
I don't really have access to any game systems right now, but when I do, I will check out Bayonetta, it sounds pretty sweet!

They've just announced that a patch to let the game load onto the HD is live in NA, so that should help tremendously with those loading times (from what I hear, they're now nonexistent). :D

Fair warning- the install takes 4.5Gb of space on the HD. Small price to pay, IMO, for no loading times (which plagued the PS3 version).

I'm currently replaying Normal to pick up health/magic upgrades I missed first time around. Most of those are in special challenge stages called Alfheims. These range from "Kill all angels in the time limit!" easy to "Use 6 Torture Attacks in 5 minutes!" moderate to "Defeat the angel using a maximum of 7 punches and 6 kicks!" difficult...

Oh, didn't I mention that earlier?

She's a witch meaning she's made deals with demons and thus has to kill angels as part of this deal...

Well, that's pretty brutal, that's all I have to say.
But it sounds fun...

Oh it's pretty brutal.

But then again so was Devil May Cry.

And if my calculations are correct, I should have the last post on the 100th page of this thread... :twisted:
