There's this new video game called Bayonetta and this game is SMOKING HOT!!!!!.:eek: I think tomb raider 9 will have to do something i don't know what but it will have to do something AMAZING. What do u think about this game.

Lara's still my favorite but this woman is pretty impressive.:cool:

Nah, this game while being very spectacular, hardly competes with Lara. Tomb Raider's focus is still primarily on exploration, not being a Matrix Martial Artist. I mean sure, I could see them improving her armed and unarmed techniques, but it would seem ridiculously out of place to see her pulling off over the top aerial maneuvers.

ugh.. when i saw the adverts for bayoneta i felt like turning off the tv. it looks rubbish. no offence... just seems dodgy if you get what i mean. :-/ I know, don't judge a book by it's cover, but i can tell a dodgy game from a mile.

Nah, I would rather write a novel than play that game.
I am not naturally a difficult gamer to please, but there is only three games I have eyes for this year:

Alan Wake
Serious Sam HD
Tomb Raider 9

Other than that, I am not bothering.
And Tombraidergal is right, that game does look dodgy.

I think the whole idea is that it is a 'random' game (well going from what I've seen of it), just like Kill Bill is essentially a 'random' film. None the less it could be very cool, I might give it a rent to try it.

Regardless, the woman looks somewhat more flexible than Miss Croft.:scratch:

It's not on my list of games to buy, nor is TR9 for that matter. No real reason why it's just that I'm cutting back on gaming and plan to buy just a few 'stand out' games this year; them being Heavy Rain and Peace Walker.

Don't get me wrong, I will buy TR9 (probably) but it just might not be for a while... that's if it's out this year.

I think its about time people stopped staying 'TR needs to be more like this game' and let it develop and thrive on its own traits and strong points.

This thread is not about comparing lara to anyone:whistle:. I mean Lara Croft is Lara Croft and you simply don't mess with that woman. I just wanted opinions on Bayonetta. Oh and Please for the love of winston keep Uncharted out of this thread.:D Heard enough of that game already.:hmm:

The character design is just bleh, to me. I would give the game a chance, but honestly I just have absolutely 0 interest in it. If I wanted to play a sexy Vixen in tight leather attire, with something obscene on her boots I will play BloodRayne. Yes, I am a fan of the BloodRayne games because it's done right. They gave Rayne an attire that covered her properly, and the gorefactor is just awesome. Story is great. But there's not competition with Lara there.

But putting Bayonetta with Rayne, there's a slight competition there. Two vixenx in tight shiney outfits and obscene boot heels. But really.. I think Rayne takes the cake in that competition. I find no interest in the game, what so ever.

She's got the librarian look to her and I see "Porn-star" in that look with her catsuit.. The guns for heels just cracks me up.

Haha. I just saw a comparision picture with Sara Palin. :lol:

Oh my god, she's so repulsive looking.. http://woodencircuit.com/wp-content/gallery/bayonetta/bayonetta-chick-with-sword.jpg

I'm so grossed out by it. I just don't like the character design! :nut:

hmm, I find the character very attractive, But your right about one thing bloodrayne is a beast when it comes to hero's in leather:thumb: By the way bayonetta isn't in leather she's in her own hair.:hmm::lol:. Yeah it's weird but it is creative, also beat the game you get additional constumes that look nice.
P.S. Where is Bloodrayne 3, Crystal Dynamics should make it if no one else is.

Well no BR3 because Rayne's story is completed. She killed all of her Father's bloodline. though I do agree there should be more BR games, but it seems like the second game didn't get enough attention like the first game did. Also, doesnt' help that Uwe Boll ruined the reputation of the games with his crappy directing. Poor Rayne.

About the hair thing, they could've done a better job with the attire. I like that idea, but to me it wasn't pulled off correctly.

TBH, it doesn't attract me. it looks dodgy like i said, but, if my dad bought it, i'd probably play it to check it out as i do with all the games i get.... then i find i like them. so maybe this game might win a spot in my fan game brain. (unlikey). Strangley, the picture of this 'bayoneta' reminds me of 'Julia' from Tekken games... also... Julia reminds me of lara croft.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzYiMmYMet8

I was just referring to what happens when she does her magic tricks. :naughty:
And she doesn't look like Lara, AT ALL. Really, they have nothing in common but the dual pistols (well, Bayonetta actually has four pistols if you count the ones on her boots too).

She's also got a disproportionate figure. Small head, long body. Let alone she's wearing stilettos. Her moves are sexual--in the first cutscene she's in a nun outfit and it gets ripped off, and she does moan as it rips. As she gets her new set of guns she does a sexual 'dance' putting them on her boots. Also when she does use her gun-heels she stands on her hands using her legs, shooting randomly.

She's nothing like Lara. Bayonetta is out to seduce. She's a dominatrix. Who cares if she's from Europe, and if one would look closely the game play is nothing like TR. Let alone, if one wants to compare the game to another, it would be "Devil MayCry". I don't play those games, because I have no interest in them and I did try to play one of them, once. Honestly, I find no attraction toward "Bayonetta" or "DMC".

To those who think that "Bayonetta" is like TR, please watch some gameplay before you presume.

(L2R: I wasn't directing the whole post toward you, so please don't feel like I'm picking on you. I'm only agreeing with your post.)

I know. :)

I agree. I have played the demo of this game and I can assure everyone it has absolutely nothing to do with Tomb Raider. It's a cool game though. It looks amazing, the gameplay is incredibly fluent and not a single bug or glitch in sight. I can understand why it's getting so many good reviews.

But I don't really like the main character. She tries too much to be sexy. And I'm not digging the whole outfit either. (It's made out of hair, and comes completely off during some tricks. Yes, she is nude then, although not everything is visible of course. :o)

apparently you don't own the game, because that is definately not all you do in the game. That was just a little short detour from the original gameplay so the game does not get repetitive. There is also a motorcycle sequence which is awesome. Yes Bayonetta is really sexual but thats just the theme of the game.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: tomb raider legend had little detours like that to remember the motorcycle in Peru and Kazakstan.:whistle:

Thank you, Pinpal, for starting this thread. If I did, it would disappear in 10 minutes. LOL..... No, seriously it would.

I have the PS3 version. Yes, there are loading times but the gameplay is tight and I've been waiting on this since the first news emerged and of course, to honor another butt-kicking female video game protagonist character. :D

I'm not one of those who do not get hung on graphics. I think it's fine. As long as I enjoy it, it doesn't matter what anyone else says.

I realize it's from the director of the first DMC. However, Bayonetta's INSANE gameplay and speed is how DMC should have been originally as a series. If you watch walkthrough videos or have played DMC, she even RUNS FASTER than Dante ! In DMC, his attacks and running feels painfully slow.

your right dante can't keep up with Bayonetta. I really love this game. who do you think will win Bayonetta or Kratos(God Of War series) I haven't played a single god of war game but I think Bayonetta can kick Kratos' butt.:)

Kratos has my vote.

He's brutal, doesn't give anyone a second chance, and practically still a god after being exiled from Olympias. He took down Zeus! Plus many other gods.. Still is!
