Sex, Blood, and Christianity in Bayonetta

BT writes: Platinum Games’ Bayonetta is a title as famous for its quality as it is infamous for its sexuality. The eponymous heroine has been called a shallow, sexist, and pandering object for the benefit of the “presumed straight male audience,” and it’s hard to argue differently. Comments by its director, Hideki Kamiya, and the questionable advertising campaign don’t do much to paint the content in a different light either. However, I think there’s more to both the titular witch and her game. (Bayonetta, PS3, Xbox 360)

Bizarre uses of Christian imagery is nothing new to Japan. Just look at Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I actually loved this game. It was very underrated and had one of the best combo systems i've ever seen. Platinum Games is a good studio. can't wait to play Metal Gear Rising.

I would've say it was heavily religious... it just had some bold religious undertones such as the nun outfits, the Church and the crosses but it's been a long time since I've played the game so my memory is a bit vague.

The blood and sex I can agree with though.
