I just want to find out if any body who played Bayonetta who is also into SF3: Third Strike noticed this. I just purchased Bayonetta recently over on XBL's Games on Demand service. I'm still in the very early parts of the game but I wanted to point out this particular combat mechanic that could be unlocked by purchasing the Moon of Mahaa-Kalaa accessory. While wearing this, you can repel an attack by pushing towards the direction of the enemy at the instance of being attacked. Sounds familiar?
I was pretty surprised that they added a parry mechanic that is similar to Third Strike in this character action game. Now I'm pretty much saving my halos to get this accessory so I could parry out of any situation...kinda like Evo moment #37 but not as Ken but as a witch clad in her own hair.
