Bayonetta 2 Direct Stuff

One of the few games that I appreciated on the XBox 360 was Bayonetta. Made by Hideki Kamiya, the ex-Capcom director behind Resident Evil and Devil May Cry; it was a real spectacle that was going to be a Devil May Cry sequel, but turned into a new game that in my opinion far succeeds all of the Devil May Cry games. Not (just) because the lead character is a rather sexy lady but the gameplay was lightening fast, the graphics were to die for, and had a really interesting twist that was neither dull nor mind blowing, but enough to really enjoy the game. Not to mention the butt-ton of Sega references in the game too. The sequel, Bayonetta 2, is an exclusive to Nintendo’s WiiU, and might be the game that’ll get the so called, Hardcore, gamers to get a WiiU.

Along with showing off some cool new weapons such as the Crazy Eight, where your kart is surrounded with 1 of each of the basic items in the game; they explain more about gameplay mechanics such as bumping into other vehicles in anti-grav mode gives you a boost. But there’s something a little cooler than that! Continue reading

Nintendo Direct 18/Dec/13

┬áNintendo did their live “Nintendo Direct” video today at 2PM GMT. I missed it as I was doing Christmas shopping. But when I got back home I found a whole bunch of stuff waiting for me on Facebook and Kotaku. So let’s have a look at them…

The first thing I saw was the announcement of Super Mario Galaxy’s Princess Rosalina is to be included as a playable character in Super Smash Bros for WiiU and 3DS. As much as I like the idea of more female characters to be added in the roster, personally I could name some better characters to add, like Impa from Zelda, though to be honest there’s already a crap ton of Zelda characters in Smash Bros anyway, maybe Paula from Earthbound, or Mona from WarioWare.
