Review - Bayonetta

Saturday, January 16th, 2010 by Mark-12

Bayonetta

Title: Bayonetta
Publisher/Developer: Sega/Platinum Games
Platforms: PS3 and XBOX 360
Release Date: 01/05/10
Number of Players: Single-player

I’m going to start by saying I’ve NEVER played any of the “Devil May Cry” games. I’ve heard a lot of early previews say that this is either “Devil May Cry done right,” or “a good successor to Devil May Cry.” Since I’d never played any of them (I know, shun me), I wanted to give Bayonetta a try. I have a hard time comparing this to any other game, to be honest. It’s not due to my lack of gaming knowledge, it’s because the character concept for Bayonetta is so unique. She’s a gun wielding witch that can do nifty fighting techniques. Okay, let me amend that, the character concept reminded me of the game, “Bullet Witch” a lot. Bayonetta runs around with 4 handguns, two in hand and two strapped to her ankles. Her common attacks are based around a mix of melee, weapon and magical hair-based attacks. As you progress through game, you’re able to pick up other guns and melee weapons. As you get different types of weapons, you can have custom weapon loadouts. These different loadouts will change the basics of her attack combos and what attacks they do.

Congrats to Microsoft!

Yes, congratulations are indeed in order. For what you may ask? For being the first console I’ve ever owned to go bottoms-up on me. As of 11:19pm Pacific my Xbox 360 Elite, allegedly more stable in its hardware than previous models, opted to take a steamer on itself. When I powered the unit up today to check out Flock from Capcom the unit hissed loudly then locked the screen, leaving it pixelated. Upon a reboot I was greeted by the famed and dreaded 3 Red Rings of Death. The unit is listed as “out of standard warranty” despite the extension provided a while back retro-actively by Microsoft. This unit would have turned two years old on the 29th of this month.

Supposedly, the 3 RRoD is still covered as per Microsoft’s own warranty page (though all links to the extension announced a while back have mysteriously disappeared). Honestly, this is no shock to me. In the years I’ve worked in the IT industry Microsoft has crapped out on me more than any other companies combined. In other news, my launch Wii and Playstation 3 60GB models are still running fine. Thankfully, we have a debug 360 handy here as well. Of course, that doesn’t diminish my disappointment in Microsoft yet again. I’ll talk to them on Monday and give them a stern tongue-lashing and we’ll see what they have to say.
