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...   read

Bayonetta 2 is giving me the Tetris effect
