Bayonetta impressions at the halfway mark

Posted by Jost1 (2078 posts) -

I've had fever dreams before but Bayonetta is one of those filtered through another fever dream.
 
Some observations: 
- Yes I'm still terrible at character action games. Barely scraped through Ninja Gaiden 2 and same thing here pretty much. Though I have improved.
- Incredibly inventive monsters and environments, really enjoying the catholic imagery of it.
- Sexualization of Bayonetta not bothering me as much as I thought it would, instead it's just funny. Which I'm sure they intended?
- Love the Sega references throughout.
- Can't pull off a string of combos consistently. I think my brain isn't wired for fighting games and DMC-clones.
- The shopkeeper guy said "Whattya buyin? I heard that in a game once." Which I loved.

And finally
- God of War better amp things up considerably if it's gonna come close to this level of insanity. Same with Dante.
