I think you chaps are overlooking the fact we didn't even know it was a thing until all of a few minutes ago.

Exclusive or not, Bayonetta 2 is happening and I couldn't be happier. Also means I can care a little less about DmC.

That is a goddamn masterstroke by them, a very not-kiddie game with a very loyal fanbase exclusive on your platform.

Nice, I wonder what multi-platform publishers turned down what would've likely made them a nice chunk of change.

To be honest the WiiU controller doesn't really strike me as ideal for a game that can get as frantic as Bayonetta. Then again they are tempting the poo poo out of me with zombieU as well.

VV drat, shows how much I'm keeping up with it. Curse you nintendo.

The tablet controller isn't the only one. There's also one which is basically indistinguishable from a 360 pad.

Sega's a goddamn mess and I'm glad that a company as venerable as Nintendo is taking over as publisher, but Nintendo is willing to pull out all the stops to ensure that they will still compete in the coming next generation.

I can only hope that this isn't an exclusive, because gently caress, I don't have the money for a WiiU.

Hey, at least Platinum's going to do good business on this one, and Nintendo's finally showing willingness to work with developers outside the company!

I don't think so, last E3 it was announced he was working on that superhero Pikmin type game for the WiiU (under P* of course.)
It was the Resident Evil guy who left Platinum, whathisface that directed RE4.

This thing.

Even if Bayonetta 2 uses the most basic combat of Bayonetta 1, then it'll still be a million times more deep than DmC. As for the characters and story? Well, they couldn't be any worse than DmC, also. We're not going to be having abusive orphanages, and social commentary. So that's a step up. I mean, it's not going to be Shakespeare, but tongue-in-cheek camp, would be more bearable than grim dark whateverthehell's going on with DMC.

PS3 version is playable, but it has a lot of areas where the framerate chugs. If you have a choice go for the Xbox version.

Sir Ilpalazzo
Sep 4, 2012


The framerate doesn't just chug at certain parts, it's consistently lower than the 360 version the whole way through (and there are a few parts where it drops to nearly unplayable levels, especially on the higher difficulty levels where the game starts spamming flaming enemies). It also looks really washed out and ugly compared to the 360 version, although that's not as bad as the framerate thing.

If you only have a PS3, you should still get that version because even PS3 Bayonetta is one of the best games released for any of the current consoles. But if you have both consoles, there's no reason not to get the 360 version.

The person that's directing Bayonetta 2, Yusuke Hashimoto, had a lot of input with Bayonetta. I do wish Kamiya was doing this game as well, but I think it'll be fine.

What's interesting is that this is the first time Kamiya has ever acted as a supervisor. Up until now, he's always worked as a director, some kind of lead game designer (like Resident Evil 1), or a small role (like in Viewtiful Joe 2 or Resident Evil 0). I wonder how that will turn out.

Mostly the bad textures and washed-out colours. The framerate is a lot worse than the 360 version as well. Anyone who mentions slowdown on the PS3 should know that it happens just as much on the 360 version, so that really isn't as much of an issue as they make it out to be.

There is nowhere near as much slowdown on the 360 version as on the PS3 version. I played both versions and it was really noticable on the PS3 compared to the 360.

The only time Bayonetta slows down on my Xbox is when I chain bat dodge into witch time.

It definitely slows down on the Xbox when there's particle effects up against the camera. I think the biggest culprits is lava splashes. But I don't really remember any slow down in a level, except for maybe a moment or two. It doesn't suffer from Blighttown framerates.

At least with that, I know it's not trying to force me to take it seriously. Bayonetta has no great message other than, "have fun with our combat system, and do cool poo poo with it".

Not, "LOL Anonymous and FOX, amiright? But seriously take me seriously, we've got a deep message and characters for you people here. We're trying to make game story telling a legimate media here. D'ya get it? He told her to gently caress off. And he has sex."

At least if it's not taking itself too seriously I can just laugh at it, rather than cringe at it. Of course, it's early days yet. Bayo 2 probably won't even be out till the end of next year, at the earliest, if we're lucky.

From Giant Bomb's comments section, people are saying that Sega actually didn't even want to continue Bayonetta and that Nintendo is the only reason Bayo2 is seeing the light of day.

gently caress Sega indeed if this is true, because the only good thing I've seen with their logo on it in the past few years is Shogun 2: Total War under Creative Assembly. Exclusivity (hopefully timed, but probably not) is better than seeing a series waste away under an incompetent publisher.

The not-so-stellar version of Bayonetta on the PS3 really bummed me out, because I could see that it was one hell of a game and worthy of being a successor to DMC; unfortunately, I couldn't get into it the way I usually did with DMC games because the framerate on my PS3 was choppy and terrible in certain areas, and everywhere else was middling at best. I could only muster the gumption to get gold trophies at worst on all stage on the normal difficulty.

Real shame, that version was.

It's not like Sega wanted a lovely PS3 port. Bayonetta was going to be an Xbox exclusive, that's how Platinum were making it. Sega wanted to bring it to the PS3, but there wasn't enough time to do it at Platinum and have them ship on the same date, so they brought in an outside team to do the PS3 port. I'm not sure what went wrong, but it was less than stellar.
