Feel like I'm doing pretty much all of this years game purchasing within the week.
Far Cry 4, Dragon Age: Inquisition, WWE 2k15, Smash Bros, GTA V....

I got a Wii U last Christmas as a gift and Bayonetta 2 was the primary reason I wanted one, so I guess sorta?

I'll be getting it on the Xbox One initially but when the PC version becomes a thing I'll probably wind up grabbing that too.

I'll say exactly what I said in the other thread.

As someone who cops to having what most would consider pretty uh, I guess juvenile tastes, I gotta say this looks like it could be some dumb fun in my book.
I can see why average Joe would find it objectionable, the same way I understood why they found Manhunt or Postal and other similarly controversial games objectionable.
But won't stop me from playing it, also probably liking it to some degree and I'm sure there's a niche group of others of a similar mindset that'll get a kick out of it.

There's an audience for everything.

The end of Red Dead Redemption... I won't lie, I bawled. Cried a couple times playing The Walking Dead also. Season 1.
I teared up a few times in Season 2 but never full on cried.

That aside I can't recall anything but it happens more than you'd think, it really doesn't take much to trigger the waterworks for me.

Anything by Patrick unless there is a lot of buzz about it but that happens extremely rarely.

Pretty much this, the F1 podcast and DOTA.
Well. I SOMETIMES watch the DOTA stuff.
But not often.

"The sort of twee person who thinks swearing is in any way a sign of a lack of education or of a lack of verbal interest is just a fucking lunatic." - Stephen Fry

I've seen some folk react with a sort of disdain when someone waltzes into a thread with little more than a Stephen Fry quote but fuck it. The dude is right.
I don't take issue with any swearing. Sure, sure. Not in front of the kids. But in a group of adults I'd like to think everyone could handle it like adults.
That's to say if you don't like swearing, that's perfectly fine. But you don't gotta be a wet blanket about it.

About the only thing that really bothers me about it is how inconsequential the sims you aren't currently playing are, outside of your own interactions with them.
In The Sims 3 they'd go on living their lives and doing things, they were somewhat interesting. There isn't really any of that here, so it's hard not to feel like it's a step back.
But I'm still enjoying the gameplay and I'm sure they'll happily sell me improvements and fixes in future expansions and I'll eat it up 'cos I'm a sucker.
