    Bayonetta

    Game » consists of 27 releases. Released Oct 29, 2009

    Bayonetta is a "non-stop action game" from PlatinumGames. The titular character is a witch who can use hair-based magic, as well as firearms attached to her feet, to battle fallen angels and other foes.

    Is anyone else really put off by the sex thing?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 ...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    @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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    " 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. "
    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.
