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.
So I went into a GAME store today, and I asked the guy at the till if they were getting any Ouyas on Friday. It turns out that they already had two consoles available. The guy even wanted to sell me one a day before the official launch in the UK, which is pretty crazy considering that if this was a PS4 they wouldn’t dare sell one until the launch day. Unfortunately I have no money, but I’m going to get paid tomorrow, so they were cool to reserve one for me for tomorrow. The only issue I have is that not only do I not have a HDMI capture card with a HDCP decrypter, the Ouya doesn’t have any analogue video outputs, so I won’t be able to stream the console onto Twitch. Which is a shame. But yeah, I’m going to be getting an Ouya tomorrow!
