Bayonetta 2 (WiiU)
  • Bayonetta 2 is getting a huge buzz critically right now. Game spot game it a 10 and from what I have gathered it is only their 8th ever 10 score.

    I have never played the original (I hear it's packed in with the sequel). It seems cool but I have never been a big third person action guy. I am really no good with combo systems.

    But on the other hand it seems missing this game means missing out on a big part of what may become gaming history. I also want a reason to turn my WiiU back on.

    So sell me on Bayonetta. Oh and you can use this thread to talk about this game in general.
  • Dude she gets naked and fights with her hair. How are you not sold on this?

  • Because I'm not a 12 year old virgin.
  • I bet you're also never accused of being the life of the party either. Modern surgery can probably remove that stick out of your arse.
  • 'Tis in the post! I won't be able to play it for a while, not until I get myself a Wii U bundle of some sort by the end of the year. I wonder if I should play Bayonetta 1 first? I know there's a story to the series, but I kinda want to play the 2nd one first.
  • The original is a download code that comes with Bayonetta 2 right. Or did I just make that up just now?

    I'm sure I read that somewhere.
  • @vampirelich Ach, that's what logic would say! You know, I might try just a little bit of Bayo2 for fun, and then dive into Bayo1.

    Btw, I saw this deal last night.

    I couldn't help myself. A Wii U is on the way! (A lot sooner than planned!)
  • @Manio They thought of that, and thus Bayonetta 1 comes with every copy of Bayonetta 2! Unless you live in Europe, where you also have the option to buy Bayonetta 2 by itself.

    @vampirelich Yeah, 32gb isn't a heck of a lot better than 8gb and I prefer the Wii U in white, so I didn't mind at all buying the basic Wii U. I wonder, can you expand the memory by using an SD cards or do you actually have to use a drive? I'm interested in the VC as well, can't wait to play the first English Fire Emblem especially!

    In Europe, Bayonetta 1 even has its own box. This is great because of the limited space on the Wii U!
  • @vampirelich I might just do that too. Using a flash drive is a lot more convenient than using a HDD! Thanks for the info. :)
  • @vampirelich Do. It seems like Flash Drives are a bit hit and miss, while self powered drives are the best option. Personally, I don't think I'll be downloading much, but it's worth discussing this since I believe that Bayonetta 1 is a download for American users, and I have no idea how much space it takes up.
  • I've been playing through Bayonetta 1, but I'm stuck on chapter 10! Shit is hard. :(
  • Just finished the first Bayonetta and popped in Bayo2 for just 15 minutes and OH MY DAYS it's beautiful! The presentation is just leagues better than the first one. Loving the new designs for Bayonetta and Jeanne.

    It's a good thing I played through Bayo1 first because it pretty much picks up right after Bayo1 finished. Well, kind of anyway. Can't wait to dive into it more. Went straight into hard difficulty (3rd Verse difficulty?), I feel like Bayo2 is going to be worth the time to get good at the battle system.
  • I think I might notch the difficulty down one. I died a fair amount the last time I played and haven't gone back to Bayo2 in a few days now. I feel like there is an interesting plotline buried within the two games' storylines, but the games present themselves in a way that I can't get myself to care about its intricacies. I care about what happens to Bayonetta and co. but that's about it.
  • And Witch Time doesn't last as long as it did in Bayo1! My baaaane. But I guess the Umbran Climax balances that out. I believe Hideki Kamiya - the creator of Bayonetta AKA Best Dev on Twitter - also created DMC1, so that would make sense! I love how hell is featured waaaay more bluntly in Bayo2 though, adds a ton of variety to the enemies!

Howdy, Stranger!
