Anyone seen this ?

It's made by Platinum Games (composed of some former key members of Clover Studio ) under the direction of Hideki Kamiya (Devil may Cry creator).

Yeah, damn I'm looking forward to it. I'm a huge fan of DMC and Okami.

I read abt it in EGM or OXM but quickly skimmed over as I hate these kinda games. A nude patch should make it interesting though!!!!

:lol:

My bet is that a japanese high college uniform for the main character is bound to arrive on the marketplace soon after the game is published.

Yeah. I really hope this game doesn't suck. It shouldn't though since it is basically just DMC :\.

and DMC4 was awesome. Not to mention it's one of the best PC ports I have ever seen.

Yeah, it's basically DMC4 gameplay with another character, moves and background. I like that you can pick up and use different weapons. She picked up the miniboss axe after the kill for exemple.

Here is two other short gameplay movies

I finished it and it is a great game IMO. It plays like DMC and is a fast paced action game. Though on the PS3 is has a serious flaw. It doesn't install anything to the HD so there is A LOT of loading... screens. When you want to skip the cut scene, you get a 2-3 second loading... message before the interface comes up. Go into your inventory and it does the same. Change from tab to tab in your inventory and there is very noticeable loading pause. I once complained that the Ninja Gaiden 2 Sigma inventory screens sucked cause it was so slow, but they are significantly faster than Bayonetta's inventory stuff. I'd would love to give the game a 9/10 but would drop it to about a 7/10 because of the excessive pausing and loading. Even the cleaver loading screen where you can practice your combo timing between levels gets old after a while. If I were someone at Sony I'd have denied approval of the game till they installed stuff onto the HD.

Just finished it on the 360. Fantastic game!

It's like DMC3 on speed... with about 30x the budget and epicness. This is probably now my favourite action game ever.

PLAY IT.

I'm going to start my second playthrough now, I unlocked quite a bit on completion but I still have more weapons to buy :D

I LOVE the soundtrack to this game also. Really well done.

IMO, this is how DMC4 should have been.

Great game, the port on PS3 isn't as bad as I was lead to believe, but it still isn't pretty. Definitely able to look past it though... almost finished with the game on Infinite Climax mode (hardest difficulty).... just got like... 4 easy chapters to go, I think.

I wish they would port it to the PC :[

LOL, seriously, the hardest difficulty is called "Infinite Climax"? That's the name of my finishing move in bed.

Well, technically it is "Non-Stop (Infinite sign) Climax"... basically it seemed the same as Hard mode, but you could NOT activate witch time by dodging attacks.

Anyway, I got my Platinum on this on Friday and still have stuff to do in the game :\.

Do you have the ability to parry yet? I find that more helpful when witch time can't be used :))

Yeah, and I love using parry, but witch time is sooo nice lol. And when you use the moon of kahaa to block and counter, you miss A LOT of the time because the mob moves and witch time doesn't activate... I think the only way for witch time to activate on IC mode is the Time Bracelet or Selene's Light.

I completed the game yesterday and i enjioyed the experience immensley....you know what...sack it...i'm so lazy so i'll just cut and paste what i posted on another forum for me to get across how much i like this game and why those who may be judging the game by its cover (i know its easy to get alienated by the games absurdist, random and extremely Japanese overtones) but i feel some may be doing themselves a diservice (sp)

Just finished Beyonetta and i must say it was a fantastic and fun experience just as i expected it would (TBH when i saw the gameplay videos for the first time, i knew instantly i would like the game).

My nit-picks are that the film-strip sequences are annoying and destroy the sense of pace and urgency making it feel out of place and unfinished, and the game was a little too short on Normal difficulty cause i wanted more

I like the fact that the designers allowed you to play some denuemont (sp) sequences and there is some nice credit gameplay going on also plus there is a nice treat for us guys at the end

Again i will mention that the games strength lies in its fantastic combat engine - there are so many moves at your disposal that the possibilities for combos is limitless thanks to how seemless one move flows into another. It is litterally mind boggling how many moves you can do one almost feels overwhelmed but if you have Zen-like-reflexes (ala The Matrix ) you'll make it through.

I know this game looks like a brainless button masher from the preview videos and it appears that there is a lot going on but like i said Zen-like-reflexes is a must. TBH i used to think the Ninja Gaidens games and Devil May Cry games were brainless button masher when i initially saw its game play which is why i avoided those games for so long. I am so glad i discovered those game cause it means experience Beyonetta

To judge this book by its cover is not only doing this game a diservice (sp) but also your self imho

It is your choice at the end of the day cause all i can do is tell you of my story



Now for Bioshock 2 although i have become very curious about Mass Effect 2 (my curiousity alowed me to discover NG and DMC)
