PAX Prime: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is Basically Bayonetta 2 | StickSkills

StickSkills said, "Remember how some people were bummed about the cancellation of a possible Bayonetta 2? Well, whatever came out of what they had, it’s pretty much (if not entirely) in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. As I started playing it at PAX Prime this year, I just couldn’t shake the feeling that it’s basically Bayonetta." (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360)

Would of rather had Bayonetta 2 to be honest.

The more I think about it the more I wonder where the Bayonetta series could go after what happened in Bayo 1.

I don't want to really spoil anything, but Kamiya basically pulled another Devil May Cry 1.

Also Kamiya's ideas for a prequel don't sound too good.

It seems to play a lot differently. The way you select the direction of your sword slices, kill enemies through objects, the incorporation of stealth etc.

I don't think it looks anything like Bayonetta at all apart from the fact that it shares a similar combat system, which is something PG has more or less perfected this gen.

Exactly what I was thinking. Nothing shown of Rising thus far reminds me of Bayonetta.

Even though raiden wears bigh heels, I'd hate to see him do a wicked weave move and end up half dressed. Would want bayonetta as a playable toon though. : )

For what I have seen so far of the game it certainly doesn't have the deep of Bayonetta's combo system.

I think Platinum Games is trying something more simple to win over the Metal Gear fans who don't have experience in this kind of games.

How can you tell how deep a game is from 2 minute tutorial vids and blurry videos of people mashing buttons at cons?

The camera in this game looks pretty fixed.

The camera in Bayonetta is dynamic and freely controlled

and......the use of the analog sticks as weapons TOTALLY makes this anything BUT Bayonetta.

That reason alone is enough for me to get it! Though I would like a Bayonetta 2

It doesnt remind me of bayonetta at all. It looks pretty good, but i doubt the combat will be as deep, since the have so many other elements to work on. I really hope for a sequel for bayonetta, specially since devil may cry and ninja gaiden are both going downhill.
