Just played the PSN demo, and I really, really liked it!

I'm usually awful at this type of thing, but the controls worked really well, and the graphics are great.

I'll probably buy this simply because I think she has the fittest arse in videogaming history.

Yeah, but you'd feel less bad about it if the game turned out to be worth playing. I won that X-Blades game in one of Hairy's compos; absolute pile'o'shite!

Ditto, bags of potential for thumbs going by some of the stuff I've seen on deviantArt concerning Bayonetta. Er, I mean that a FRIEND OF MINE told me about on DeviantArt.

Bah I'm not buff enough or pretty enough to be gay. Oh and there's that whole fanny obsession thing, and the fact that the thought of stubble razing my shoulder does nothing for me...

Is this game suitable for families or is it a bit raunchy?

Based on various reviews, it isn't really family viewing given that half the time she's pretty much naked.

I had no interest in this until the reviews started appearing, I just assumed it would be another Wet-like tits and guns but with the heavy controls of DMC (I hate the jump in that - it just feels wrong).

I should hate this with a passion. I hate Devil May Cry, I've always hated any of these daft Japanese games that require a library of combo moves to be anywhere near effective in 'em, and that have insane action that happens at a pace that makes you feel like your eyeballs are being peeled like grapes.

But this.

This is good. It's better than good, it's FUCKING good actually (and no I'm not just saying that because I find her arse utterly delectable, honest).

The 360 demo's worth a play.

Preordered. I think Gameplay are doing the game with the bonkers free gun if you order quickly.

Really looking forward to this now!

Nice small sized demo (well smaller than Activision and EA's usual efforts) which meant it all downloaded in one evening rather than four. Top work Sega.

I keep trying to get my other half's best friend to play it, as she's the spitting image of Bayonetta (facially anyway, she doesn't have 7ft long legs and a suit made out of hair).

Completely insane, this. Not entirely sure if it's for me though, even though I enjoy stuff like DMC and GoW. But still... summoning a massive dragon to eat up the already huge boss = real O_o moment.

It's the sassiness of it all that stands out to me - the game just oozes style, even more so than the DMC games.

Yep, love the characters and the setting - subtle steampunky pervy mix of artistic styles.

I can see me getting horribly stuck in it though as I always seem to with games like this but it looks like it's going to be a lot of fun!

A real O_o moment, that and the torture moves...

I didm't give a flying fuck for this one before, specially after the shit storm about the PS3 port (the one I'll be buying and playing), but after the demo I was just shocked on how good the game felt, after playing DMC and DMC2 (pure shit this one), Bayonetta just feels great, like the next step on the DMC series (I hated DMC 2 and 4, never played 3)...

So, is the PS3 version really crippled?

For the level I played, the only things that for me was crippled was the camera (but most games on the PS3 have a crippled camera IMO).

I'll have to play around with the camera speed settings before a final word on this.

Well, as long as the gameplay is smooth. The EG comparison article made me worry (they basically said PS3 owners may as well stick with DMC4, which is a pretty big putdown if you ask me).

I really want this except for some things holding me back:

1. Afraid that all reviews are based on the 360 version and the PS3 version is a secret turd
2. It's not very family friendly, naughtiness-wise (violence is okay, of course!)
3. I'm kinda used to Hairy sending me all my games, now

I like the point 3... ;)

Anyway I really wouldn't call it family friendly (some nudity, altough everything is fast enough not to be noticed).

My problem is also that point 1, I'm a bit afraid...


By the way, you should stop playing eyepet... My wife is always saying "Your gay friend is playing eyepet again!"...

LOL :P

Just kiding... ;)

Why are you so worried about raunchy bits - you're over 18, aren't you?

Anyway, apparently the PS3 version is getting a major fix for the Western release. Hopefully that will improve things. If not, then just get a 360 already - they're ridiculously cheap nowadays. :)

Well, I'm over-18 but I'm a total prude in the family household. It would be an embarrassing game to sit through with others around!

The end to House of the Dead Overkill was so cringeworthy!

Intriguing, I'll have to finish HotD: Overkill sometime soon then. Got to the last chapter and haven't played it since. :)

Just played the demo.

I can see why 360 owners will like it. On the PS3, it feels like it's running through syrup.
