Bayonetta could have been in Project X Zone 2

How long is too long to spend reading Hideki Kamiya's Twitter feed? (I'm asking for a friend.) If you're unfamiliar with the Platinum Games designer's online antics, his pinned tweet, "REPEAT for insects: Don't try too hard," has a little d...

Super Smash Bros. sure got a lot sexier with Bayonetta around

The Super Smash Bros. series has had its fair share of mods, but I think this just might be my favorite one yet. Modder Smb123w64gb has taken the liberty of swapping everyone on the Super Smash Bros. roster with Bayonetta's character model,...

Bayonetta 2's price is getting halved next month

Bayonetta 2, a Wii U exclusive and our Game of the Year in 2014, does a lot of things very well. Its combat is free-flowing and challenging; its characters are wacky and memorable. This is a well-rounded game that's held in high regard for ...

Here are those great pieces of art from the Super Smash Bros. Direct

When Ryu released for Super Smash Bros. earlier this year, he brought with him a cool piece of art (though Wii Fit Trainer looks more like a bodybuilder than a yoga instructor in it). Thankfully, it was a tradition continued with the next s...

Bayonetta 2 gets 25% price cut at Amazon and GameStop

Platinum's 404 page is a cute little Bayonetta demake

Instead of displaying a simple file-not-found message, the 404 page on Platinum Games' website holds a score-attack demake of Bayonetta. It's worth a moment of your day. The game is simplistic -- you jump and shoot at oncoming angels -- but...

Bayonetta 2
Outside of Devil May Cry 3, Bayonetta is one of the finest action games of all time. The action systems were so clean, so precise, and so rewarding that it leaves pretty much everything these days in the dust. Bayonetta 2 doesn't change a whole lot, and that's perfectly okay with me.   read
