It's kind of embarrassing that the guys at Capcom think I'm gonna love a game that's full of double entendres and like stripper talk n shit. I'm not that lonely guys, come on.
 
HER CLOTHES ARE LIKE MADE OF HAIR RIGHT? AN WHEN YOU DO LIKE SPECIAL MOVES OR WHATEVER, IT FLIES OFF AN SHE'S LIKE TOTALLY NAKED. IT'S FUCKIN HOT YO.
 
Does anyone else think all that crazy business is dumb or am I alone in this?
Apart from that, game looks awesome.

Yeah I'd rather play as a really old lady in a sweat suit. But the gameplay is cool.

#3 Posted by GunstarRed (4997 posts) -

the thing is... the longer you play it and the amount of insane shit that happens the sex thing really  really isn't all that much of an issue, there are enemies that are far worse than anything bayonetta does and if youre knocking one out to that shit you probably need to  look into that. if anything the game has its tongue firmly in it's cheek... if the game could mock you for only being interested in the sex stuff... it probably would.

Yeah, I think it makes it all a bit silly. Having said that, the reason I'm not getting it is primarily the PS3 issues.

Dude that actually sounds hilarious, I would play that day 1.

Hate to be pedantic, but Capcom has nothing to do with Bayonetta. The game is being published by Sega. So you know...
 
Also, I completely agree. Having played the demo I find a lot extremely off-putting about Bayonetta's design, both game design and art style. Nothing about that game really impressed me. Alright, maybe it was a pretty game, and the frame rate seems smooth, but still.

Actually that'd be kind of cool in a weird way.
I'd prefer if she was a sex witch and they got over it after a while, instead of like the whole game interface bein layered with OMG SEXY LADIES. You know what I mean.

I'm not put off by it, but I'm not turned on by it.

#9 Posted by CharleyTony (923 posts) -

First off, it is from SEGA, not Capcom... 
 
Second, it is okay for a woman to be sexy. What is wrong is a woman being used as a sexual object. If you have a problem with the Bayonetta character, what's next ? Women (and homosexual males) will complain about a totally ripped and shirtless male hero ? We actually have that in every other game... 
Just to be clear, they heroine in Bayonetta isn't forced to be naked. She decides to be ...
#10 Posted by InTheEnd (268 posts) -
Personally, I thought the whole partial nudity thing was just a part of the whole "this game is balls to the wall insane!!!" theme they got going on there.

@I_smell: It's actually a SEGA game.. FYI and I can understand where you're coming from as I felt the same way when I heard about the game. But play the demo man... that game is NUTS!.. The hair thing is just an over the top gag to go with all the crazy stuff the've got going on in it. I'm never won over by a games demo... ever, but in this case I totally want to buy this game! Sort of like just pure, reasonless fun like back when I first started playing the Snes and Mega Drive... you should check it out, personally she aint all that hot, it got 9.5 on IGN so really looking forward to what the Giant Bomb guys think.
#12 Posted by Snail (8574 posts) -

I understand where you're coming from. It kinda pushes me away from the game, but it isn't my style of game anyway.

#13 Posted by MetalGearSunny (6986 posts) -

It seems like they are trying to sell "Devil May Cry with boobs" to me.

#14 Posted by Willy105 (4688 posts) -

I think it's just a marketing gimmick to get the teenagers to buy the game.

#15 Posted by Whisperkill (2969 posts) -

There's a place and a time for that kind of stuff.
 
Bayonetta is both the place and time.

#16 Posted by trophyhunter (5800 posts) -

no

#17 Posted by Vorbis (2749 posts) -

She has a tiny head, that bothers me more than anything.
 
Tiny.

Sounds like my kinda game.
#20 Edited by Weltal (2272 posts) -

Nope.
 
 I think the over-top nature of the game and the specific character that is Bayonetta demands that she be every bit as over the top as the rest of the game. The fact is that she attacks people with her hair which will shape and form giant hair dragons to consume her enemies, if the bat-shit crazy that is described here doesn't appeal to you than there's nothing I can say, you simply don't get it.

That kinda stuff is a put off for me, so you're not alone. The game is probably awesome, but I don't think I will be able to bring myself to play it.

#25 Posted by Lolo (40 posts) -

I would be - She's really cheesy.  But I think if you're going to go that route, you do it 100% or not at all.  For whatever reason, it just works for the game.

#26 Posted by Turambar (6641 posts) -
@I_smell: It's not exactly different from Kratos running around killing things in overly violent fashion, ripping someone's head off and using it as a search light.  Both are crazy, just different kinds of crazy.
#27 Edited by Emandudeguyperson (2502 posts) -

All I know is I hate that new TV ad they have for Bayonetta, also, I'm lonely as shit, so I don't really care either way.

#28 Posted by Icemael (6307 posts) -

I think the game could do without it, but it doesn't really bother me -- the developers have done such an excellent, excellent job on virtually every aspect of Bayonetta, they've earned the right to put as much embarrassing shit as they want in it.

According to Arthur Gies, this game can and has been masturbated to.

What....what the hell is wrong with you?
 
Does overt sexuality make you that uncomfortable?

Hate to think what the modders would cook up in a PC version...

That's all true...except for the 7 minute dance scene at the end of the game.

Who gives a shit.  As long as the game kicks ass, shut up and play it.

That's what I keep telling people about RapeLay, but they won't listen.

If I can find a copy, I'll play that shit.    :P

Does it have coop play?
#38 Posted by SeriouslyNow (8534 posts) -

No, but it's scheduled for the upcoming MMO; GangofBangs.

#39 Posted by PK_Koopa (581 posts) -

I see it as more comical than actually Sexy considering how it adds to the crazyness of the game.
Also sorry to add to the list of people but it was made by Platinum Games.

#40 Posted by kamolahy (117 posts) -
@I_smell: Not only do I agree with you, but I think a message needs to be sent out to game developers. 
 
This stuff is so absurd, rediculous, and embarrassing, that it's potentially a deterrent to playing the game. Boobs, sex, nudity etc. in Video Games are the nerdiest thing that has ever existed and using it in the manner Bayonetta has just takes it to a new level of ridiculous. It doesn't help that there's J-Pop in it either. Seriously, please try stripping games of this crap.
#41 Posted by crystalskull2 (437 posts) -

Sex and Nudity sells.

#42 Posted by xyzygy (9871 posts) -

The game is supposed to be weird and I think its odd sexuality is a major part of that.

#43 Posted by Jeffsekai (7026 posts) -

No why?

Yeah, heard that too and mentioned in in another topic on GB. He wasn't very kind to the game even though his score wasn't significantly lower than other peoples. I bet most teenagers will just eat it up as long as it has tits and ass shots that enough for them. 
 
But seriously, how metal are you when your play with one hand and rub one out with the other.
#45 Posted by PenguinDust (12443 posts) -

Not at all.  I'll never understand why people get so uptight by a little sexuality in games but freely support the evisceration, decapitation and disembowelment of others with fervor.  

#46 Posted by get2sammyb (6412 posts) -

I think it's hilarious. It's obviously poking fun at itself.
 
I can see why people might think it's a bit too much though.

Wait so a creative direction that you don't agree with is something that should be avoided in future games because you think overt sexuality is nerdy?
 
That's umm very sad for you.  I personally have no problem with allowing myself to be taken on a journey into someone else's vision, even if I may not actually find it to be realistic or appealing to my tastes.

i agree completely, all games where they have chicks with tits the size of my car tires and wearing only a snickers wrapper held together with dental floss just erk me out.  i find it totally unnecessary and kinda weird that people actually enjoy or need stuff like that to make them want it.
 
there's these creatures called women that have real vagina's, if that endeavor fails for you there's always porn.

I'd prefer a character model from Idolmaster for the lead...............But that's just me
