VGArabia: After you finish the game, you will be rewarded with a nice clip showing Bayonetta perform some sexy dancing. This clip doesn't reveal anything related to the game story line. It's a bonus material in the game.
Let kratos and bayonetta dance with each other, lool
Yeah for sure, lool
But why is her head so small?
Japanese art direction.
That is not Japanese art direction that is just straight ugly. Anyone who thinks this game is sexy needs to seriously get out more, no offense. She barely looks human, and her proportions are way off. Anyone who says this game is the best action game is overhyping this game. Just a DMC clone. Played the demo and passing. Mass Effect 2 for me instead.
@nycre: A DMC clone is not an insult. DMC is an awesome franchise and should be near the top of the pile along with Ninja Gaiden. Excellent games like those two paved the way for games like GoW. So again, why shouldn't I play this game? I'm on the fence about the game. But I read nothing but facetious reasons why the game is "overhyped". And I tend to pass those off as vengeful complaints from the crowd that got the worse off version. BS reasons for the sake of downplay. Stinks of the whole KZ2 thing. "Ugly" and "bad proportions" are the new "too grey". So what's *really* wrong with the game? Gotta do better than "ugly" for a top-rated title.
How can it be a DMC clone when it's made by the creator of DMC? Desperately bashing it and trying to downplay it won't change the fact that it's an awesome game. Keep trying.
The game might be absolutely incredible but that was... I don't even know, did you guys seriously enjoy that? The most recent episode of Family Guy had better dancing (Peter takes Loise's dad to a strip club)
She's kinda got an unnaturally skinny, barbie doll like shape with that wee small head and Tina Fey glasses. Kinda gives me the creeping willies to see her moving around like that.
Yeah she kinds creeps me out as well. Lil head and really thin body....kinda looks like a Rue Paul lookalike. I mean what is up with the glasses??? THey trying to go for the HOT for TEACHER vibe lol?? Its NOT working for me.... ...but hey Im sure some like her look. NOT ME :) And the vid of her dancing...that was NOT sexy and I could only look at a few secs!
That was nauseating.
I think that's what bugs me about this game. I don't think she's a very appealing character. Certainly doesn't make me want to rush out and buy the game.
She's nasty, and the only way that people can find that attractive is if they'd go for anything with boobs and a hole. Nothing is proportional on that creature. It's lanky legs make it look like a spider, the music is pure sh*t and the dancing was horrible. NOTHING was good about that video. And if Kratos and Bayonetta are ever in the same room, Kratos will rip Bayonetta's head off and eat her neck.
She is also deformed. Im scared right now.
I heard small heads in Japan are pretty common.
Seriously, what's up with the pinhead? <think unsexy thoughts think unsexy thoughts...ugh, *that's* unsexy> edit: Think I'll pick up Dante's Inferno instead.
Everyone complaining about the size of her head should realize that it's consistent with superhero proportions. She's about 8 1/2 heads tall. That size is usually reserved for men but it's not uncommon for that scale to be used on women. The design may be sexual but its good.
mute the bayonetta video and play it with back in black. much more suiting; it reminds me of a show girls place i went to one time.
Nononno let Dante and Bayonetta dance together...
"How can it be a DMC clone when it's made by the creator of DMC? " Do you know what a clone is?
So eight hours and three disagrees later, none of the complainers can offer anything better than superficial opinions. 95 comments and 460 degrees at the time of posting. And not a single real criticism. So either no one listened or no one could come up with anything. *shrug* Gj N4"Gamers". Living right up to expectations. Anyway, I guess I'll grab the game. Have fun downplaying, I guess.
hmmmmm, kinda fast. the video probably would have had a different vibe if they would of used some House or some electronica music, this http://www.youtube.com/watc... or something from Eric Prydz. http://www.youtube.com/watc... or even this http://www.youtube.com/watc... ....hell, it worked for GTA4's episode :) i guess I'll use that in the background when i see that part coming. still, it's got some solid motion-capturing none the less :)
Tony P - I don't really need to bash Bayonetta, there's nothing wrong with it being a DMC clone and perhaps a damn good one at that. The thing is, I never liked DMC, so I won't get this game. I love God of War but games like Ninja Gaiden and DMC never did anything for me. Again, I'm not bashing Bayonetta, I'm just saying it's a game I wouldn't play. I guess arguing about this game is pointless for me, much like that Forza 3 vs. GT5 stuff, I stay far away from that. I'm not a racing fan. :P
"It's fuc**ng ugly!" seriously her head is to small, her body to big, its like they took the head of 10 year old and put in the body of a woman with gigantism, seriously there is no proportion. I could only watch the first 30 seconds and I believed she was suffering from seizure or something and the annoying pop music didn't only added to the creepiness, and her sarah palin look and the cheery to the whole creepiness
What's with the crappy 16-bit-era MIDI synthesized music?
Cant say I got a boner
Looks very creepy if you ask me.
seriously, after playing the demo...i hate this game so much! im not a fan of cheap hack n slash games, but this...well there really isnt words to describe what a load of rubbish this game is.
people are saying her head is small; that's not it, her head is perfectly fine. measure the size and width of her head to her shoulders. http://i47.tinypic.com/2mo4... it's her legs that's giving such an appearance, or an allusion. http://i45.tinypic.com/1zfi... and Hideki Kamiya stated he's all about the legs. http://www.gamespot.com/new... jeez, people are failing here on their research. you want a big head bayonetta there you go http://i46.tinypic.com/8x2a... ps3 gamers- "oh never mind, she's got small shoulders now" lolz, fvcking people with their complaints. edit, and plus the women's on fvcking high-heels too, so that adds to her height.
I must be one of few who doesnt get turned on by a video game...
women like bayonetta do exist, they're called super models or in this case and show girls. http://i46.tinypic.com/30sg... and comparing the style of those girls in that pic i think that's exactly what Hideki wanted bayonetta to look like (with the high heels and white gloves, and feather like things dangling from their arms.)
I'm so glad to see people saying these things about the character, thought it was just me. She's a terrible character; personality and art direction (plus technically). When it was first announced, she sounded great. I've only played the demo, seen a few clips and now seen this - she's so cold (but not in a meaningful way) and she looks bad. But at the same time, that wouldn't matter if she had personality - but there seems to be nothing. She's just a bunch of empty shapes, hence why the close-ups of her assets were the best thing about that video; it's obvious those got the most work. Poor Bayonetta. It has completely put me off buying the game.
This game can't even take on Darksiders, let alone GOW3. (not attacking darksiders, just saying it can't even beat that) Looking forward to buying Darksiders. Stopped the vid when she flapped her hands like a chicken. Looks fugly.
Pretty lame. I'd rather watch this all day http://www.youtube.com/watc...
honestly though; even a homely woman is more attractive than a virtual one. Then again, even watching pr0n is a little unsettling for me as it's still not a real woman, just an image of one.
That wasn't even sexy, it was awkward as hell.
That was sexy and fun to watch.
I just can't stand her microscopic head and ugly proportions
Maybe that's why it got such great ratings. /s but seriously... what the hell? That was the most random thing I've seen in a "hack-n-slash" game.
"Bonus Material"? Ummm....WHAT? I thought this was supposed to be a hack-n-slash....not a dancing sim. Aside from those who love show tunes, I don't see the appeal.
with this game, and this cements my opinions of it.
She looks so weird... and her body structure is so awkward that it hurts to watch.
Looks like she's doing the herky-jerky. That was almost painful to watch.
Agreed. I too found it painful to watch.
Simply awful wth.
@ 3:12 Nipple alert. Get this game pulled now. My kids are afraid of nipples you'll scar them for life.
lol be careful some random idiot might see your comment and start a ban movement
Of the hundreds of people that worked on this game, how come not one of them has said: "You know what, I think her head might be a bit too small for her body, not a lot, but just enough to annoy the crap out of me." Devs these days... Anyway, reminded me of Happy Feet, which is always a good thing.
So THAT'S why Famitusu gave the game such a high score... ;)
That was just weird. Not sexy, just weird.
Ok, that was weird and you should feel bad.
No wonder it got such high ratings lolz, it was designed for men who have no gf, seriously get a girl, it will be 100x better than this. I only hope Dante comes along and kills this game now.
You have a girl right? And you're posting on N4G? Yeah...
Depends on the girl! @Tordavis: Aren't you also posting on N4G? Yeah...
@DaTruth - Aren't YOU posting on n4g!? jk Also anyone that thinks her proportions aren't out of wack need to go study comicbook anatomy.
@Da_Truth I'm single and nothing else better to do while at work.
Even an innocent dance clip is enough to bring out the hatred from the God of War fanboys who can't accept that Bayonetta is a great game. Relax kids.
What does God of War have to do with this? No one is talking about God of War. People either think this is cool or they don't. Can't gamers simply have an opinion about something without you trying to slot them into some camp in your console wars? The whole reason these idiotic console wars exist aren't because gamers simply have different opinions, it's because some fans continual make it about "You must be this side or the other. You aren't allowed to have opinions that doesn't get you a label slapped on you." The console wars perpetuate themselves because of comments like Soda's. Otherwise it would just be gamers sharing different views and there wouldn't be an issue. Give it up, Soda. No one wants these "console wars" any longer. Let gamers talk.
You are waaaaaaaaay off.....you are the ONLY ONE who mentioned GOD OF WAR.. WHY are you here?? THis is one of the few comments section I actually took the time to comment on the video and how weird Bayonetta looks. How about you take that fanboyish ish somewhere else///SHEESH!!!
I don't find Kratos sexy either. All Soda's doing is trying to stir up "console war" crap by pushing Sony fans buttons by dragging God of War into this. Just check out his posting history. The guy exists solely to antagonize Sony fans, and for what? They're just people who like games on a different platform then he does. Why do some find that so threatening? It's ludicrous. Personally, I don't care if you still game on the Intellivison. If you're a gamer of any kind, I salute you.
You only enjoy the dance clip because you are a God of War hater! Give it up, nothing you say will make this game better than God of War! See, two can play at that game!
I don't think Bayonetta haters are butt hurt GOW fanboys. I just think they don't like the concept. I actually LIKE using a sexy woman instead of a man as the protagonist for a change. It's probably one of the reasons I LOVED Heavenly Sword so much. This game is all about titillation and over the top action. There's plenty to appreciate in Bayonetta, especially the art design.
Honestly, I find Bayonetta truly sexy, you guys need to try this game out. Her dancing is kind of awkward,"I skipped it halfway" but during the game, you'll know what I mean.. So Sexy! "Meryl ; No wonder it got such high ratings lolz, it was designed for men who have no gf, seriously get a girl, it will be 100x better than this. I only hope Dante comes along and kills this game now." How do you know that they dont have gf? You have one? Japan got their own taste, and I can assure you, this game is better than DMC4 (at least for now). "holdmedownma2008 6 - whoever wrote this article needs to get laid...by a real women" The person who wrote this need to get eye check-up.. Seriously, none of you tried this game before? I have, and it's amazing! I cant stand watching people at N4g spouting nonsense about this and that like an idiot. The negativity in this site is toooooo strong..
Ha ha. I was thinking the same thing. This site is so filled with video game nerds, as soon as there is some "sexy" (or almost "erotic" - not porn!) involved, people become defensive all of a sudden ("what has that to do with video games" etc). LMAOF. Bayonetta has got something, I must say. Something missing in 90% of all video games these days. Probably adds a little bit "pressure" to the kids these days (LOL, pun intended). "Small head". LMAOF. Long legs, damn. That's what that girl has.
who is her choregrapher Britney Spears or Beyonce
that video is a complete waste of code.
Looks like she was having a seizure, so sexy not so much, awkward perhaps not sexy.
Not sexy, but fu*kin' awesome. Bayonetta is hot.
