A nice but brief romp with Korra and Naga
One of the biggest surprises of 2014 had to be the announcement of a Legend of Korra game, published by Activision and developed by Platinum Games. Yes, that Platinum Games -- the current master of action titles.
I'm so lost
Look, I'm not the type of guy that would lie to you. I wouldn't feign expertise in something I know nothing about. Today, that something is Bayonetta 2, as this launch trailer makes very little sense to me.
This is all givin...
And a final boss that will 'blow your mind'
This first "behind the scenes" video for Platinum's Legend of Korra game isn't great, but fans of Platinum's intense action fare might be happy to hear that there will be a high difficulty level just for them.
With a five-day sale
Platinum Games and Kojima Productions' Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now available on the Mac platform, thanks to TransGaming. This marks the franchise's debut on Mac.
This is a fine game that deserves to be on lots of sy...
Good news, Wonderful 101 fans -- Platinum Games is releasing the full soundtrack of 127 tunes to a digital provider near you. The collection is split into two volumes at $9.99 each, which translates to five CDs total.
Thirty minutes of Bayonetta
I'm still surprised that Nintendo is pushing Bayonetta 2 as hard as it is when Wonderful 101 matched their brand effortlessly, and they barely promoted it. As I've said in the past, every time I've seen this game d...
That snake part was crystal clear, though
Minor confession to make: I haven't played Bayonetta. Yeah, I hear it's good, but I just never got around to it. It happens. Heading into a quick hands-on session with Bayonetta 2, I figured my inexperience wouldn't matter much.
Wow, was I ever wrong. Now a few hours removed from the demo, my head's still spinning from trying to discern exactly what the hell just happened.
Is Pro-Bending a sport?
We're in a great point in technology that 2D properties can be faithfully represented in 3D instead of looking weird and uncanny. Platinum's Legend of Korra game looks pretty neat, even to someone who hasn't watched the...
Here's hoping this will be a treat for fans
Months later, I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that action studio extraordinaire Platinum Games is behind an Activision-published videogame adaptation of The Legend of Korra. Potential -- real potential -- for a lic...
Finding the opposite of angels
Bayonetta 2 sound designer Daisuke Sakata touched on how he goes about designing sounds for his games in a recent post on the PlatinumGames blog. In particular, Sakata talks about the presence of both angel and demon enemies...
Now let me demonstrate...
I've got this feeling and it's deep in my body. It gives me wiggles and it makes my rump shake. It's called "looking at these Bayonetta 2 screens."
That's why I'm so tickled about this latest batch, but honestly I'm about rea...
I fartbend in your general direction
A new 15-minute-long gameplay video has been released for The Legend of Korra beat-'em-up by Platinum Games. It shows off a variety of combos and elemental abilities, including nods to the series such as the ability to ride an air scooter. Here's what I've gleaned from the footage.
Look at his face!
The choice between badass Santa and comically scared mob boss for the header image was a hard one. The Santa thing is a bit trite, I guess, but he wins out. Still, look at that guy's face.
Bayonetta 2 looks insane,...
Do you wanna touch me?
Concerned over how you're going to pick up Bayonetta in addition to its sequel when it finally hits the Wii U? Not sure how you want to purchase the game so that you'll get a copy of the first game? Worry no more -- at least,...
Oh-oh-oh-oh, Miss Bayonetta~!
If you were concerned that the dulcet tones of Bayonetta and the rest of the gang were going to change drastically with the release of the anime feature Bayonetta: Bloody Fate, you can breathe a sigh of relief. FUNimation has...
In addition to Peach, Samus, and Link
After a ton of detective work, users around the 'net spotted a peculiar image from the Wii U's upcoming release of Bayonetta. Specifically, it showed a locket containing special costumes from Link, Samus, and Peach, but there...
"Do you want to touch me?"
I mean, I wanna touch Bayonetta 2. I need my hands all over it. I can't wait much longer for its release, and we've already covered climaxing together. Here's something to keep you going while ...
Hopefully, this game won't suffer from a lack of heart

First hands-on preview
Yup, you read that headline correctly. Platinum Games, the maker of such fine titles as Mad World, Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising, The Wonderful 101, and more, is creating a game based on The Legend of Korra series. It's being ...
Platinum 'learned a lot from Nintendo'
Nintendo hasn't bought Platinum Games (wouldn't that be an interesting development?) but the company is acting as publisher for Bayonetta 2, which has become one of the bigger Wii U games of this year. Speaking to CVG, direct...
I'm not really much a fan of the Avatar series, but I might become one after this. It was just announced that Platinum Games, the developers of Bayonetta, Vanquish, and Metal Gear Rising, are working on the official video gam...
Sequel pack-in bonuses add extra flair
Bayonetta 2 is almost here, and from everything I've played, it seems to be a more consistently exuberantgame than the original. While the first game frequently toggled between serious face grim-darkness and light-hearted whi...
[Update: Oh good! "The original version of Bayonetta will be available via a digital download on eShop when you purchase Bayonetta 2 (either a box version or digital copy of the game)," says Nintendo. Glad that's settled.]...
And there are Nintendo-themed outfits
As announced during Nintendo's E3 2014 Digital Event, Platinum Games will finally be ready for us in October with Bayonetta 2 -- and there's a bonus. The original game is included for free!
We also got a quick look at a new trailer -- it looked hot, always -- and apparently there will be Link and Samus outfits for Bayonetta. Gotta find those, ASAP!
'Action at a whole new scale'
Platinum Games has shown off their new Xbox One exclusive, and it looks insane as usual. It's called Scalebound, and the idea is focused on huge boss fights with various creatures, ranging from dragons to the Hydra. It'...
*Price is Right losing horn*
One of the intrusive thoughts that would hit me while playing The Wonderful 101 is how great the game's collection of 100 simultaneously controlled heroes would work as a contestant in the next Smash Bros tournament...
The publisher is thanked again for saving Bayonetta 2
Platinum Games producer JP Kellams recently spoke at UCF’s Center for Emerging Media, and reminded fans yet again that if it wasn't for Nintendo, Bayonetta 2 would not have existed.
Kellams outright states, "...
A lesson in listening
Hey everyone! There’s a Platinum Games game out on PC! WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Well, I guess since this is their first foray into the world of PC ports, it’s probably a good idea to check and see how well they&...
You don't say
Pretty much everything famed game director Hideki Kamiya says on Twitter shouldn't be taken at face value, but every so often he'll tweet out a sincere take on the industry. Musing on some of the design concepts of Wonderful ...
