Bayonetta dev isn't gay, thinks Itagaki is an idiot photo



Did you know that Bayonetta director Hideki Kamiya is bald, but isn't gay? Apparently he wanted the world to know that. He also wants to the world to know that he thinks former Tecmo developer Tomonobu Itagaki is an idiot who has unrealistic ideas about breasts. Yeah ... those two really aren't fond of each other.

"I am bald, but I am not gay," confirms Kamiya, answering a question I'm sure we were all asking. He then went on to talk smack about boob-obsessed Itagaki, explaining that "It's a huge mistake to think like an idiot that big breasts on women seem erotic."

This is not the first time these two gentlemen have crossed swords. In their last bout, Itagaki trashed Okami of all things: "My daughter tried playing Okami, and she got sick of it pretty quickly -- and I got pretty sick of it, too... So I heard Kamiya said something about the action genre not moving forward in eight years. Can you tell me more about that? ... Was he asleep for eight years?"

Whether the beef between these two is simply professionally competitive or deeply personal is anybody's guess, but I'll say one thing: Watching these two brawl is always supremely entertaining.

A Sacred 3 developer apologizes for the game

Sacred 3 wasn't a very well received game; I felt it was an average and uninspired hack-'n'-slash game with some terrible attempts at humor. Comments on my review either sided on "hey, it's not too bad in co-op," to "this is ...more
