Bayonetta may be under the radar so far but it has all the ingredients to end up being the best action game this generation.
Why it cant...
lol nice one
Bayonetta could be good, but to be this generation's best action game i doubt it because its has tough competition. I mean Come on, GOD OF WAR 3 and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. Both exculsives to PS3 and both offer amazing content. God of War 3 has moving environments such as fighting on a Titan shown in the trailer and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 has co-op play, both equal badass. Bayonetta has a chick that is covered with her own hair and she shoots guns from her heels and hands and looks like Sarah Palin ....hmm... i guess you could call that badass. hope this game will have something to seperate it fron the rest of the games coming out cuz my wallet can't afford it all.
BAYONETTA Will be the best action hack and slash this year. No doubt about it.
2 stylish hack n slash w/ playable characters that include bo0b physics of 09 NGS2 Bayonetta Onechanbara also has the physics but is not on the level of the 2 above. 2 Epic hack n slash of 09 God of War 3 Darksiders I can't choose which is greatest yet but I want all of them. (leaning towards GoW3) Muramasa: The Demon Blade looks like it might be the best 2D hack n slash.
Kratos says hi to everyone:P
how awesome the God of War games are. It maybe the most consistent (consistently awesome!) Action/adventure franchise out there.
like the article says, they are different genres(almost anyway), its difficult to compare the two, god of war is sort of an easier version of the bayonetta/dmc/ninja gaiden genre, its not bad, its just different. For me, i prefer the bayonetta style, you have more control over whats going on. if you disagree CLICK disagree, don't mindlessly take my bubbles away...
i click disagree and i took a bubble way because you said not to.
@oni How are they different Genre? They are both Action Platformers like NG and DMC, the only difference is God of War has more cinematic flare, a better story (while others don't even have a story to begin with except DMC4, which had a nice story until Dante came along and back tracked through levels) I have no idea how Bayoneta story will be but from the initial trailer it will most probably be a mix of NG and DMC. Plus God of War series has THE BEST CAMERA in Action/Adventure Genre, not even once did I had to fight with the Camera during GOW 1 & 2. Plus obviously the visuals and the scale. I am not knocking off Bayoneta, it will be awesome because of it's director but it will take more than just big b00bs and big @$$ to take down Kratos.
but are you being funny, or do u genuinely think i did something bad by saying not to take away my bubble if u disagree with me? seriuosly help me understand if i did something wrong, i don't mean to be someone who belongs in the open zone... EDIT: at 2.4 From the article: "The lone exception could be God of War III. However, not many people believe that it should belong in the same category despite from being in the same genre. God of War places emphasis on delivering a spectacle while the other three aforementioned titles are more combat-focused." sorry i misread the article, they are in the same genre but are different. what i said was i prefer bayonetta because its more combat focused, and to me its more fun than god of war's gameplay style. Dmc4 story was crap even before you switched to dante imo. And for a japanese character in a game her boobs aren't that big, but her ass is lol, there a breasts in god of war as well on the harpies right? (actually forget about that part just jkz, not really part of a constructive response) What i like about bayonetta is that it brings a different perspective to the style that makes this genre so much fun, god of war brought savagery, dmc brought its own style and bayonetta is the latest addition. God of war III will be a great game no doubt and all those points you said about the game are true, but bayonetta seems more interesting because its fresh, God of War is still a must buy for me though. can you give me a bubble i have run out lol:p
God of War isnt really leaning on the stylish action games. God of War is more hack and slash with quick timed events. It works for it but it's not the same as this game, DMC, or NGS.
i hope because shinji mikami.
But I don't think it'll top God of War 3.
Everyone seems to forget that Darksiders is being released this year as well.
God of War vs Bayonetta interesting
Better than God of War 3? Ninja Gaiden 2/Sigma 2? I think not, but it's okay to dream. TGSI
We will see soon enough. But, I wouldn't recommend sleeping on this one. Hideki Kamiya is one of the best game designers out there.
have you played devil may cry 1 ? it is really great game . we gatta play the game to say our opinion.
When I first heard of this game, I instantly brushed it off, but I have to admit, after I saw the trailer ( I only saw it for the first time early this year) it actually looked really good. I think that Bayonetta will probably be about just as good as Devil May Cry 4, but it's going to take a lot to even come close to God of War 3's Epic-ness, production values, and amazing story line. Devil May Cry and other Action games had been around for years, and then God of War came out in 2005 and stole all of their thunder, lol.
i'm sorry are you saying devil may cry 4 was good? You seriously thought that was a GOOD game? i am in disbelief... IMO devil may cry 4 was worse than devil may cry 2. I could go on why but it would be too long. Seriously bayonetta will wipe the floor with devil may cry 4. I haven't played a god of war game so i can't comment on that part.
dmc4 was worse than 2??? did u even play those 2 games? dmc2 had one combo in the whole game!!!!, dmc4 had bunch of moves, levels up, dante had multiple weapons and the story was good, only lame part was fighting same bosses 3 times. otherwise u dunno wat ur talkin bout
well yes i did get a bit carried away i geuss. dmc 4 is better than dmc2, not by much though. But the story was sh!t, although i did buy dmc4 after i played mgs4 for the 7th time, so maybe that has an effect on it, but the story was terrible, imo. Thing is why couldn't they just forget dante, and give nero all those weapons instead, wouldn't that make the game better, who gives a poop about dante, sure it was great to play with him in dmc1 and in 3 he was different aswell, but i am tired of him, he is tired, let his unoriginal ass go already. You have to admit though that the backtracking that started midway was terrible right? Edit: why do you only have three bubbles, facking trolls...
playin mgs4 wud do that to u, amazing story. well i think dmc stories were always bad, as is ninja gaidens, i just think game is fun lol. yeah we didnt need dante it in, they cuda made the game better, they didnt tho *shrugs. and yeah backtracking was lame excuse to make game longer lol. my bubbles, o thats from fanboys, i argued bout line-ups and red rings and thats what happened lol, actually nintendo guys do it the most honestly, but *shrugs lol.
DMC2 was not nearly as bad as most people say it was. Both are pretty good games but no where near as good as DMC1 and DMC3. Those two games were freakin great!
there's not enough stuff out yet about that one but following oni and cyrus's argument, I think DMC2 was not that bad! I don't have the credibility though because that's the only DMC I've played from start to finish! I didn't finish DMC3 and then the backtracking thing I read from the reviews of DMC killed it for me! I have it installed on PC though but haven't even touched it since I'm too busy playing other games on my PS3!
but it wont be. it has to compete with games that are way out of its league. besides the main charecter looks like a 40-year-old with a hair dryer
LMAO I still plan to own bayonetta. Those things do look like hair dryers though and with all that hair it makes sense.
i know one thing for sure, shes the most annoying action game character ever, she thinks shes sexy and shes not, and her legs r freakin long, ugly long, also her voice and speech pattern is annoyin.. will it be fun yes, but she will take away from the experience i think. and no game beats ninja gaiden games in gameplay, dmc is awesome but not as fast paced, and god of war is to easy but still fun. just wish kratos would think a little before he acts, killing his own family??? (dont care if he was under control), putting all his power into a sword? wtf, dunno he's a moron lol, but games r still fun
I liked all what I saw about this game but one thing bothers me , it is the resolution.... it seems a bit low ,like a PS2 game. Anyways this Bayonetta is on my top 10 games I will be buyign this year for my PS3 !! Go Sega GO ! More RPGS now please....
Could be. The guy created Devil May Cry after all (only did the 1st in the DMC series, then got screwed by Capcom). Got my eye on this one, that's for sure.
Probably not. Gaiden and God of War probably got that title.
The girl looks like s***
Its one game that i am looking forward to as well as Darksiders, bionic comando and Dark Void.
Reading about Platinum games, they have some of the best gaming minds in the buisness all under one roof, its pretty insane, i hope they make a survival horror game, that would be awesome... A developer that is actually taking a risk? If that happened then surely EA must of finally announced an SSX game for the ps3/360...
Bayonetta WILL be the best action game this generation, simply becuase it's the only one that is aiming to actualy push the genre forward. God of War 3 is just a sequel, and NG Sigma 2 is just a suped of version of a game that wasn't that great to begin with. The action genre needs to be pushed to the next level, and Bayonetta will be the game to do it! The action genre will belong to Bayonetta! I guarentee it!
Don't compare Bayonetta to god of war 3 because Bayonetta is just like devil may cry 4 but with a lady same thing all over again and devil may cry 4 was not a good game at all but this time it's not capcom it's sega the makers of devil may cry just some of the same people who made devil may cry Bayonetta will be good that's it nothing amazing as seen from the gamplay it's the same as devil may cry 4 but god of war 3 will show other game's how to make hack and slash game's look this gen lol
Bayonetta could be the best multiplatform action game this gen but God of War 3 will easily beat Bayonetta for best action game (overall) this gen.
This guy created Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe. Santa Monica will have to go a LONG way to outdo him.
inb4godofwar3praise... oops. and lol @ the fact that most of people saying "no" have killzone2/godofwar avatars. Could you possibly be more closed minded? I'm actually hyped about this game, looks very stylish and I like Platinum Games's style AND the fact that Shinji Mikami is working on it.
As much as I love God of War, this guy created the action genre we know today with Devil May Cry and destroyed all of our faces with Viewtiful Joe. I'd say he has more talent in his pinky than Santa Monica has in their entire studio. The man's a genius! Bayonetta will probably be better than GOWIII.
17 comments and still no sexual-related joke? O.o
but not the best this gen... I think the best action game will be either between GOD OF WAR 3 OR FINAL FANTASY VS 13
read the article and it has GOW 3 in a category of its own. it says GOW is more of a spectacle while these other games mentioned are more combat based. so if you but GOW in a differnt category then yes it could be the best, but if you put GOW with it then no it's second best.
YES! Oh god yes.This game will stun the world.Guaranteed
It will not be the greatest action game this year because of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2. If this game has the same type of camera that DMC has it will definitely not be better than NGS2. I do think it will be a good game though because of it's DMC roots if you will.(DMC while not as good mechanically as NG games are top tier. I personally think it a tie for second place between the NG and DMC franchises behind God of War because of God of War's vastly superior story.)
well..... i dont think it can surprass GOW3, yea, like Leon S. Kennedy said , the creator of this game is the same as Devil May Cry and Veautiful Joe, still i liked more GOW1 than Devil May Cry (and it was my 1st game, geez i love that one) but GOW has a goos story- incredible action- outstanding characters- and ultimate arms, i mean , did u saw those lion gloves!? dam! i look forward to Bayonetta, still im preety sure GOW will be better (AND PLEASE dont start with the *sales* excuse)
God of war is the stalest action.
All I can say is that we need more games like GOW, NG, DMC and this.
how can this be the best when it is equal to Devil May Cry's gameplay:/ Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Well IMO, GoW series kills DMC series anyday. Also, how differs this game from DMC? It looks exactly the same except that you have some execution moves which are btw directly stolen from GoW series.
