Kamiya's Tweet about Bayonetta Wii U spurs fan campaign

Operation Dead Angles works to

Nintendo's announcement of Bayonetta 2 as a 2nd party Wii U exclusive was a big deal last year. Some fans immediately exploded with rage, demanding that the game also be brought to the PS3 instead. Now it seems those roles have reversed, although in a much more pleasant way. . Fans of the original game, (including it's director Hideki Kamiya), are asking for Bayonetta's first adventure to head over to the Wii U. 

Kamiya, famous for his twitter acumen, recently let his followers know that if Nintendo decided to give them the green light, Platinum could port Bayonetta to the Wii U before Bayonetta 2 is released next year. He went on to say "For people who haven't played Bayo1 yet but want to play Bayo2, I think it's a good idea to release Bayo1 before Bayo2. I hope that'll happen". That was enough for some ambitious dreamers over at NeoGaf to start "Operation Dead Angels" -- a group dedicated to making enough noise for Nintendo to bring Bayonetta to the Wii U, complete with list of applicable twitter accounts and Miiverse posts to apply to the cause. 

Nintendo and Xseed never opened up about exactly how much Operation Rainfall influenced their decisions to localize Xenoblade, The Last Story, and Pandora's Tower, but seeing as all three games eventually made it to the US, we can guess that it didn't hurt. It would be interesting to see if a big fan campaign for Bayonetta on Wii U would carry any weight. Xbox 360-to-Wii U ports are reportedly fairly inexpensive to put out, and hile Bayonetta sold well enough on the PS3/360, it's fair to guess that there are plenty of Wii U owners that would be willing to pick the game up. Throw in some bonus features and a budget price and you have a release that's sure to bring in Bayonetta fans new and old. Make Captain Falcon playable, complete with Bayonetta-style sexy animations and half-nakedness and I'd be happy to double dip.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"

I'd been worried that Jim had been losing his sanity with all the Steam sludge he's always attacking. If you've been feeling the same way, good news. His new vid warmed that void and reminded me that I follow him because he had no sanity to start with. ;)

I went from listening to the soundtrack of SMT IV, to the soundtrack to Mario Kart 8, Smash 4, Fire Emblem, and now chilling with some Mother 3. All of it was pretty awesome by the way.

After the 11th, I'm going into cryosleep until SMT IV Final is out. I'm sure Mike, Occams and Strider can manage without me. [img][/img]
