how can a game be this based?
HOW IN THE FUCK IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE
Why do you fuckers like this game THIS much?
It's fucking Bayonetta 1 but without the QTEs and worse bosses except the Sage. Bayonetta has the personality of a rock compared to the first game aswell.
>Bayonetta has the personality of a rock compared to the first game aswell.
That's completely wrong though.
Bayonetta in the first game was less expressive. In this one she seemed much more comfortable with showing emotions and openly being worried about others.
that daddy and mommy made me cringe.
the game's story is really shit imho. replayed it about 6 times now to get plat rewards and skip everything that is skippable because nothing is worth watching.
that doesn't change the fact that it is a 10/10 game though
It seems that you're pretty much fucked if your partner dies when you're Rodin and you're fighting one of the faster enemies/bosses. He's so slow to move, especially when his shield kills your momentum entirely.
So yeah, I think he's a little disappointing to play as, but he's still fun enough.
I didn't play the game on 2nd climax so unfortunately I don't have the bracelet of time, just the gaze of despair. How many halos do you think I can amass each time I finish chapter 14?
>Haven't played it in like two weeks because very little free time to get invested in it and not ready for the stress of getting my ass kicked every verse because I'm shit (1st Lumen Sage killed me like 5 times on 3rd climax)
I'll play it tomorrow I swear
>stone, bronze, silver, gold, stone, bronze, stone, stone...
>No award because you didn't backtrack far enough at the right spot you fucking faggot
>Final award: Gold
You shouldn't have any problems then. You can at least get silvers and golds. If you were playing on first climax and couldn't even get anything beyond a stone, then I'd probably say that's cause for concern.
Just enjoy the ride for now.
>Starting with number 2
If you just jet through 2nd Climax for the Bracelet of Time you can get something like 3 million halos per run with it on the Umbran Armour chapter. There's a tutorial on youtube.
a lot of the 3 star bosses really just feel insurmountable
as if having to be god-like at the game weren't enough
the slight input delay from playing online, getting paired with a bad partner, theres a lot of factors working against you
and the halos probably are not even going to be worth the effort
nice to have a completely impossible task to always work toward though I guess
So which chapter did you first die on /v/?
I managed 2nd and 3rd climax fairly well, got halfway through witch trial 3 before finally dying.
>mfw witch trial 3
I just can't, that fucking spider man.
The chainsaw is the best weapon, right? It seems to do so much more damage than the others.
>There are people calling the demon Alruna
>There are people calling the weapon Alraune
>getting my butthole cleaved in half by Rodin, even when abusing the fuck out of the watch of time
I've been going at it for like 3 hours, I think im ready to give up and say I'm not gud enough
I didn't die until the boss of Chapter 9. That push attack he uses comes out of nowhere and I can't get the timing on it down. It was my only death despite how shitty I did in the first Bayo.
It took me a good 15 hours between four or five sessions to beat Rodin.
Don't be a faggot, git gudder. Umbran Spear helps immensely, and for what it's worth Undine can stagger the shit out of his pre-DT form.
>yfw the last fight is
Rosa and Balder while Moon River is playing
It's more of a joke level to piss off completionists I think
I can consistently get him to his second form but I use Rosa and literally any attack kills you in one hit. I got him down to like a quarter of his last health bar and got curbstomped so I just said fuck it. I'll probably keep trying like an autist though. Fuck those no-windup moved.
>I think it's time for you to depart.
oldfag here, I rarely chime in, but this is a thing that's been done for ages and often out of necessity since the very first thing that'll happen after a spelling mistake is people calling you out on it
>Those chapter V battles.
Yeah I'm pretty much never getting remotely close to doing any of that.
That's basically what happens in at least a few of 3 star Tag Climax levels too. Just bashing some mook angles and suddenly
MOOOOOON RIIIIIVEEEEER and Rosa/Bayo/Jeanne/Balder is there fucking your shit up.
I truly wish the chainchomp didn't look so Mario.
Should have gone with a more demonic design to fit into the rest of the style of the world.
And then use the Mario chainchomp for when you use the Mario tonic.
>Verse 3: Alraune, Loptr
>Verse 5: Masked Lumen, Prophet (2nd Form)
>Verse 6: Aesir
>Verse 7: Grace & Glory, Sloth
>Verse 8: Bayonetta & Jeanne
>Verse 9: Balder & Rosa
>Difficulty: ∞ Climax
This should be fun.
I breezed through the game until Witch Trial 5.
Chapter VIII is my favorite chapter from the first game.
>Call me Daddy, Cereza.
Goddamn Crispin was hamming it up
Taunted enemies give more Halos but can also tear you a couple new assholes if you get hit by them. If you're not super confident in your dodging abilities, use the Midas things (makes enemies give Halos just for hitting them) and Reward Hammer (gives bonus Halos for killing with Torture Attacks) instead.
>Not using the Hero of Time costume
Link's Awakening motherfucker.
>it's pretty hilarious that one of the best leg weapons in the game is a joke/cameo
I hate it
I never know what to put on my feet and using the chainchomp makes me feel like I'm powergaming
They're strong, but they felt like EZ Mode to me, they don't even have any combos that require a pause, you can pretty much just mash punch & kick and get stupid damage. If you release the held attack with proper timing (when the chainsaws turn completely red) you get an extra swing for bonus damage, but you don't really need it.
I use them from time to time if only for how awesome using chainsaws as rollerblades is. Odette, eat your heart out.
I played Bayo on Ps3 and got my shit kicked regularly, always getting the Enzo trophy on the first playthrough. In Bayo 2 I'm never getting under gold.
after buying the moon of mahaa-kalaa i'm getting even more success, spamming tilt-forward and dodge if I as much as suspect an attack is comming my way.
It's fun, but this isn't really skill, is it?
>tfw Chapter 8 was the only time I got a platinum in Bayo 1
Kicking Joys into oncoming traffic was a bonus as well
A little bit, but Panther Within is still faster. However, you also damage anything you move near, making it less of a chore to break open barrels and stuff for crafting materials, health, magic, and Halos.
>Verse 4: Fearless, Fairness, Greed
MOTHERFUCKERS! I can never dodge their fucking biting attack!
I do too. Sloth is such a weird enemy. You can't be offensive since he evades like every attack if you aren't in witch time. And then his attacks have the strangest timings, and can hit you directly after you exit witch time. Sloth is just the worst.
Wait, really? I kept dying in 3rd climax, so I switched to 2nd climax, and I'm STILL only getting silvers at best.
I guess it's better than Bayo 1 where I got almost all stones on normal mode.
>Telling friend how balls to the walls hard Witch Hunt Trial IV is
>He asks me to try it so he can see
>OK lets do this
>Start doing surprisingly well
>Actually make it past Loptr with most of my health intact
>Holy shit it's really happening
>Final fight time
>STILL have almost all my HP intact
>Get my ass handed to me but have so much HP that I manage to beat Balder just fine
>Fuck yes I finally did it!
>Try Witch Hunt Trial V
Why do people act like this game is better than Metal Gear Rising? It's not even close to being as good as MGR. Nothing comes close to being as good as the Armstrong fight. Even the Sam fight.
>Jeanne has only one Umbran Elegance
>and it's the joke weapon one
>All these people thinking the Witch Trials are too hard
>None of them have even tried Rodin The Infinite One yet
I have been trying for a week and still can't beat him. Pic related: My personal best.
She gets a very good number of costumes, including Cutie J
If Loptr wanted to fuse with Loki's power in his sanctuary in Fimbulventr, why the fuck did he send angels and Balder to stop him in his track since that's where he was going anyway?
The Platinum Ticket? It unlocks a secret super hard boss fight against Rodin in full demon form.
A similar item was present in the first game, but he went full angel form instead, because he's a fallen angel.
Hey /v/ I'm playing Bayo 1 and I was just wondering something. My default layout is just Shuraba and Onyx Rose. Am I doing something wrong? It's working fine but I don't know. As far as I'm aware I have every weapon I can have except for the alts and the LP from I think chapter six?
It's not vital but you're spoiling the first game pretty much right when you start up Bayo 2, and the characters will have less impact because you dunno who the fuck they are.
The angels and demons didn't want him to arrive there. They weren't working with him in that situation, but against him.
Oh I don't know, it could just be one more, I just feel like the upgrades increase the gauge less than that.
It's not 100% but it's obviously much preferred to play the first one first,
Outside of extreme cases, there's really no reason not to play in release order. You'll get to experience Bayonetta 2 soon enough even if you do start with the first game first.
Why were the bosses in this game so underwhelming
Like the rest of the game was majorly great but aside of Masked Lumen, most bosses were incredibly boring, worst being that shitty final boss
>a completely shallow combat system, absolutely no on-the-fly weapon switching, very little content
Yeah nah, the only people who say MGR is better than anything played MGR as their first game into this genre. MGR is some bottom of the barrel shit in terms of gameplay depth and variety. You have be severely inexperienced with this genre to put MGR over anything other than shit like God Of War or Dante's Inferno.
Oh, but it's great because you can use the lyrics of the boss battles for meme spouting.
The bosses in bayonetta 1 were the problems buddy. I don't understand your complaints at all
>Flying fights for that "EPIC SCALE"
>Balder fights for a good rival
>Alraune and Beastly Alraune
>Loptr/Aesir is actually a challenging and engaging fight
>No more shitty Jubileus
>No more boring Cardinal Virtue fights where you fight two arms and a face while standing on a platform.
Here is a rank of all Platinum/Clover made titles
Bayo 2(argueably), Resident Evil remake, RE
Bayo, God hand,DMC(newer ones would score higher but they are made by capcom), Okami, Viewful Joe, W101, RE 2
Madworld, Anarchy Reigns
>Consolstion Prize aka why cant i get anything better
Korra, MGR, IS
>Hekatoncheir doing that volleyball shit again in 2
>Doesn't fuck up this time
I do appreciate that they gave you the ability to activate Umbran Climax whenever you want as an alternative to a Torture Attack, as opposed to only during boss fights so it's even possible to hit them as they're huge and flying.
pointless "Super Forms" like Masked Joe and Unlimited Form are silly and fun, but stuff like that is just evidence of poor design.
nintenyearolds first taste of a real game?
you've been missing out on a lot.
Nah silver would actually be good, but it was shovelware with minimal buget and minimal creative freedom, basically trying to make a game with the left over assets of other games they made.
Bronze at best on a nice day.
Forget RE4, but i cant decide wether to put it into platbecause i liked it or gold because it opened the floodgates for non survival horror games
MGR is definitely Silver. It's a good game even though it's somewhat undercooked and the combat mechanics are unfortunately shallow.
And I'd put W101 up because that ending is amazing.
>play Bayo 2
>couple of stones and Bronzes on my first time through 2nd climax
>by now they're all golds and platinums
>mostly gold and platinum in 3rd climax as well
>start playing Bayo 1
>multiple continues, stone awards, bronze awards
>keep having to set it to easy to progress through a chapter, but setting it back to normal afterwards because playing on easy makes me feel like shit
Why is Bayo 1 so much harder?
>tag climax online 3*
>faggot just keeps spamming kafka and rakshasha just in case it hits once
STOP THERE YOU LITTLE FAGGOT YOU AINT GONNA DO SHIT UNLESS YOU WITCH TIME YOU MAGNIFICENT IMBECILE, JUST WAIT TO PARRY OR EVADE, YOU CANT SEE SHIT IF YOU KEEP MAKING HIM SPAZZ ALL OVER THE PLACE YOU FLAMBOYANT RETARD
>mfw didn't know using Rosa in story changes the voice
Both of the games tried at least, AR was a attempt to get action games into multiplayer and madworld was actually trying to make a game look stylish onthe wii.
Like i said MGR was reused assets and nothing new, except for maybe the slash parts woth the analog sticks.
TEW is mostly bethesda and tango workers,so its not really much of a clover titles
Never played Steel Battalion so i cant jugde it.
I am actually sorry that i forgot Dino Crisis, loved the shit out of it,
must have been due to the fact that Capcom let the franchise die and me trying to forger the last dino crisis game
Glamor tells the Sovereign one (Loki) he must be taken to the Prophetic one (Loptr), but then later says that Loki will never be allowed to reach Fimbulventr.
What can be surmised from that is that Loptr never had actual direct control over the angels or demons, he was simply manipulating/lying to them, much like with Balder.
Instant death QTEs.
Chapters that are way longer and have way more hazards.
Controls that aren't quite as good and moves with just a little more recovery on them.
Alfheims and Hidden Verses are total bullshit and if you don't do them you incur a massive score penalty.
Also there's way, way more Alfheims and Hidden Verses.
Alfheims are way fucking harder with bullshit requirements.
And probably more!
>Having trouble with Witch Hunt 5
Equip Salamandra + Alruna
Build up magic during fights against normal enemies with normal accesories
Alruna's binding attack works even against large enemies during Witch Time
During boss fights, equip bracelet of time and the Rosary
Cheese the fuck outta them
If you can't beat the regular enemies without using magic then you just gotta git gud
>mfw replaying first game
>geting platinum in fights and failing almost every qte cutscene
>Equip Salamandra + Alruna
Muh nigga, this has been my set up for as long as I've had them. Sala for dealing lods a damage a singel target and Alruna for dealing damage to multiple targets at a time.
He usually uses the push after witch time, or a non-perfect parry, if you see him getting slightly away after any of those, he's baiting you in. Sometimes you can even chain parried witch times with that move
Why the fuck aren't Lumen and Balder playable in the single player?
It's already weird enough having Jeanne and Rosa use Bayonetta's voice work. Lumen and Rodin doing sexy witch poses to summon demons would be amazing. Heck, if they wanted they could redo Lumen's climax's with his laguna, and just remove the hair effect from Rodin's.
Please release DLC, platinum.
>Do the extended taunt
>If you need to learn how to talk to a lady
>Ask your mom
A single person cant obviously make a perfect tier list, that is also why MGR got so much backslash.
Forme personaly DC would go a bit higher as it actually tried to be a good game with dinos which is really rare.
While they're at it, how about they add a bunch of Tag Climax verses that take place at the reflecting pool in Chapter 1? That's the best looking environment in the game and it never gets used for anything.
>MGR over bayo 2
>digital copy of sm3dw
Made it through the entire 2nd climax without a death. Phantasma-whatever the fucking spider demon's name is, and Aesir almost got me.
However, being that I played it with a friend, and it was his copy, I won't get a chance to see how hard I can get shit stomped for a while.
Speaking of bosses, why do giant bosses suck so bad? Like, I'm sure some are designed well, but Jeanne in 1 and Lumen Sage are just infinitely superior.
A second set of weapons would be fucking nice on tag climax, even if it was just with CPU, or hell, a singleplayer mode that doesnt have the bet system. I just wanna play, I dont like some faggot meddling with my victims
Rodan uses his generic guns during cutscenes
Lumen uses a pair of made up light guns.
It's fucking Balder taking Bayo's place. It's already stupid enough, you don't have to overthink it.
>if you can't beat a game on the hardest difficulty than whats the point of playing it at all
Beat it, move up a level, beat it, move up. These games teach you how to get better, and they're fun. Why not learn?
>Breakdance for shits and giggles.
>Always get slapped right after the shutter.
>Do it once against Loptr.
>He tries to strong arm me and somehow misses.
Giant bosses in bayo were always a let down, i dont know why, but G&G, Joys, Balder and Jeanbe were simply more fun to fight.
At least gommorah in 2 was nice to look at.
Bayo definetly still lacks a sense of big scale fight
>Finished it just the other day
>Coincidentally wearing my feel so moon shirt
Even the celestial bodies agree, Bayonetta 2 is the best fucking game ever made.
How long is Platinum Games gonna keep up the Excellence train before they run out of steam?
>unlock Balder in Tag Climax
Man this is pretty cool and fun too bad I don't have a combo list to make sure which combos hehas
AW SHIET NIGGAS GETTING PUNCHED
GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE
SMOKIN CIGARS ALL DAY SWINNIN IN HALOS
>make Blader the worst ever person in first game
>make Balder the broest of bros in second game
Platinum know their shit
It would be great if they had a practice mode/movelist for each of them, since trying shit out randomly doesn't seem to fair too well compared to decent Bayo/Jeanne/Rosa players.
As far as I know. It's an encounter.
Just play the Tag Climax, enjoy it for what it is, you will get the encounter, then you can bet 0 halos to make it easier and make sure that you get the character.
Rodin is ruthless as a boss, though.
>The fucking Chapter with Rodin helping you out.
What was the point of you even doing anything?
>The chapters in the past.
God dammit, Rosa. Stop fucking up my combos you raggedy old bat, there's fucking angels right there next to us. Jesus, work on them.
My friend tells me the chapter where you go back in time and use the mechs is the best for halo farming. Takes a bit to get to the mech section, but once your in it, your combo goes fucking insane. Combine that with Gaze of Despair maybe, and you'll be raking them in.
Yeah but after a few games you get what the character is all about, mostly.
It's just a matter of some potentially hidden moves with delays or some shit, but otherwise it's pretty straightforward.
>fighting the 4 Auditio Members with a giant robot
That was hype as fuck.
>Rakshasa on hands
>Salamandra on feet
Well as far as RPGs goes they saved Monolith after other companies tossed them around like a used whore and actually gave them the 5 years+ dev time both Namco and SE denied them.
FPS is a lost cause on consoles(tps might have a chance to be good) and there is simply no talent for horror games left anywhere
Yeah, it's mostly the delay moves. I keep thinking I hit one every now and then as Balder, but it's hard to tell when everything is just fire/electricity shooting everywhere.
On the topic of this picture, why the fuck doesn't Rodin have a Santa suit in Tag Climax? I wouldn't even give a shit about his shortcomings if he had that on.
>The most ambitious and brave of the Cherubim, there are some sources that believe Valiance first arrived on Earth thousands of years ago, riding a comet of God's wrath that destroyed everything in its way. Valiance's sword, the Valiantium Blade, is said to have the power to cut in two anything in Paradiso or Inferno, and is prophesied to one day assist a team of over a hundred heroes in saving humanity from an invading evil.
The chapters with Rose were the best for me.
>doing torture attacks together
>nostalgia with old enemies and levels
>the "oh so that's why it was broken!" moments
>fucking witch mechs
>all of the identical moves Rosa and Bayonetta do
Also, if I play Tag Climax with a CPU (which is how you "make yourself open to co-op") and pick Rosa, I can NEVER beat her since she does so much damage...
KEEP IT UP
NOT THIS WAY, BAYONETTA
COME ON HURRY UP
Is there an easy way to not get blocked/pushed from those enemies that have that energy shield? It's not a huge deal, but it would be nice if I was missing something to avoid that easily.
I was going to make a comment on how cool it would be if there was a game in which all of PG's games took place in the same world and everyone teamed up, but then I realized W101 is basically just that.
JUST REMEMBUHD, I HAVE TO GET TO THE MOUNTAIN.
>Have to run around doing errands for Bayo to pay off Rodin
>Fly off to extremely dangerous and exotic places against your will
>almost die like all the time
>Make it home in time to tuck the kids in
If you dion't have the minerals for 3-star, what makes you think the Platinum ticket fight is going to be doable? Work through Infinite, experiment with different weapon combos rather than just relying on Salamandra and Alruna so you have a better handle on what's good where.
>You summon Aesir who fuses with Sheba and Jubileus
>Yagyu, Jeanne's version of Takemikazushi, is the same hammer Wonder Rodin used in W101
>Bayo's schoolgirl outfit is from Shirogane High
Aesir summons the Shirogane Comet in his attacks
W101, Bayonetta and DMC confirmed same universe
Literally this >>271093439
>missed me, luv?
Well, I might do better if I have full upgrades, but fuck am I tired of spending all of my shekels at Rodin's. I'd like to just hurry up and buy the Platinum ticket once and for all, to get it over with so I can at least have access.
Speaking of Inferno, what the fuck were they doing sitting on their asses during Paradiso's attempt to revive Jubileus? They just seem like they give the least amount of fucks.
I blasted through Bayo 1 after finishing up a Platinum streak on Bayo 2's 3rd Climax, and I swear Bayo 2 is a lot harsher in how it adds up Verse medals into Chapter medals. A Miss or a Stone in Bayo 1 won't trash your rank down to Silver, and I've had a couple of long levels that where mostly Gold with the occasional Pure Plat that added up to a Platinum chapter rank, whereas Bayo 2 will slap you with a Gold for that kind of shitshow.
He was talking about Bayonetta throwing the Shirogane Comet back at him. Loptr just stays there going "WOOOOW" then get hit
As for why he gets the full shot, it's simple :
he's a fucking retard and one of the worst bad guys in a Platinum / Clover game
>the last climax of the last game is her summoning herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself who summons herself
>basically ends up in a almighty punch that destroys reality and rebuilds it as it was, without the boss
he's a fucking retard and one of the worst bad guys in a Platinum / Clover game
Honestly I found that it might have been intentional. He's literally the most gay character I've seen in a Platinum game. Not gay as in likes man, but just fucking gay as in... just gay as shit.
Have you seen his final form? That shit's gay, man.
I have to wonder, did they know all along that Bayonetta would succeed, rather than becoming a puppet bound to Jubileus? Or were they just betting on her devastating Paradiso's army and not succumbing to Father Balder?
They must have been confident in her abilities to not "awaken", that or they were confident in Jeanne put a stop to it.
I think the denizens of Inferno genuinely either didn't realize what was happening or didn't care.
Whilst Paradiso is a unified body working towards a singular goal, Inferno is just every demon for itself; there's no unity, no plan, just a clusterfuck of demons trying to dominate each other.
The only time we ever see that not being the case is before reaching Aesir, which is why I think they just weren't aware of what was happening regarding Jubileus in the original.
>that fist bump between Bayonetta and Madama Butterfly
>"Whatever you did to piss her off... nice."
If they do a game, I sure hope they work on the relationship between them. She seems bro as fuck.
Oh god this.
I mean yeah ok he's remembering a ton of shit at the same time and all, but fuck they are so out of place a lot.
Like when you need to break the first barrier to the Gates of Hell
>beat up some demons
>loki comes up
>"follow me luv"
>runs off to open a time portal
> Some time ago, Rodin used this hammer during a fight to save a certain planet in crisis. Despite Rodin's fine work, Bayonetta turned down the weapon, not finding the name to her liking. Rodin felt he had no choice but to join the battle himself and put on a personal display of its power. Rodin has since made it more powerful for Jeanne, traveling to Japan to find and affix a new charm."
Reminder that Bayo turned into a huge red version of herself and beat the shit out of aliens.
Anyone has a full combo list for Balder and Rodin?
Can't find shit anywhere.
I can list the obvious ones if someone needs them
Basically, what you're doing wrong is having a default layout. Shuraba and Durga Fire is very good for knocking several shades off of anything equal to or larger than a Beloved, PPPKKK with the kicks charged, but Scarborough Fair/Bazillions with good dodge offsetting is much better for mobility, Kilgore and even Handguns have their uses. Kusheldra and Odette are the only weapons I'd say you can comfortably just fuhgeddabout.
Don't forget Viewtiful Joe was there as well, and there's a couple of Okami references in Bayo 1 as well.
Bayonetta was also in Anarchy Reigns. All they need is a Sam Gideon and Gene cameo in W102 or AR2 and they've got everything connected.
No, I was thinking of Poseman. Huh.
Well I know Luka mentions his past girlfriends in Bayonetta 1
Claire, Sylvia and Ammy I want to say the fourth is Olivia but I can't remember
Bayo 1's weapons are much more standardised, so the difference is more stylistic, and thus they can give you a much higher grade of challenge than they can is Bayo 2 where you might be using a bizarre weapon that doesn't work terribly well.
It's a little bit of both. The armor itself is definitely VJ but the guy inside it is inspired by Hongo Takeshi, the first KR. Iirc, Poseman's file mention some shit about him wandering the world on a bike and him being a cyborg.
They share a somewhat similar pose as well.
>that Muspelheim mission where you have to beat a Beloved without touching the ground
>Rodin doesn't have a dodge
Well that sucks...
>Doesn't have Witch Time as well
>Rodin uses a block shield instead
Oh, that's kinda cool
>Rodin's block shield stuns enemies
>literally ANY enemy
I know but having her redo the lines in Rosa's tone and cadence is an awesome little touch.
Why is Rodin so fucking cool? And how come Platinum is the only developer that can make badass black men with class?
>Is 3 star difficulty always a one hit kill?
You have a double jump, enemy jump, and Crow Within. Use a weapon that's good for air combos (can recommend Chernabog, LiB, and Alruna), jump instead of dodging (since dodging sends you to the ground) and when he's low go crow and spam feather flurries.
That's the one Muspelheim that tells you to git gud and learn the Jump+K and Jump+P special attack that launch you into the air. You can do them one per jump as well as utilize the crow form.
>Even The Baron showed remorse over Stella
It's Platinum, it's what they do. It's what they've always been doing even when they were Clover. They made some of my all time favorite games, God Hand, Okami, Viewtiful Joe 1/2, Bayo 1/2 and W101.
>Implying Kamiya would come to this shithole after last time
I guess he made this guy in your image then
>the God of Chaos is really just the God of Shitposting
That's pretty much canon in Journey into Mystery, Loki spends his free time literally shitposting on the Internet.
>no talent in horror games
>yfw Kojima and Del Toro made a pants shitting DEMO for their own Silent Hill game
>Kojima and Del Toro met in Japan
>Now they're working on an horror game together
What are the chances of Kamiya and Del Toro making a giant robot game? After Kamen Rider (Viewtiful Joe) and Super Sentai (W101), it'd be the next logical step for Kamiya, and Del Toro has always been a giant robot fan.

Why can't I be the Rodin?
Is Platinum Games the most self jerking company ever with all these inter company references?
fuck I don't want the to stop ever. really curious to see what Scalebound does for PG references.
I really hope that Scalebound makes a reference to
being ported to PC or other consoles or something. I really don't want to buy and Xbone for that and Sunset Overdrive alone, but fuck, I'm a Platinum fanboy.
Are you a bad enough dude to sit through seven and a half hours of Kamiya rambling on while playing Bayonetta 1?
I wish Kamiya did this with more games
Microsoft has been porting all their Xbone "exclusives"
With Sunset Overdrive, there was even an ad that said Xbox One and PC. Microsoft took it down and gave some lame excuse, but they're just hiding it for now.
Is it me, or does Jeanne have a bigger ass than Bayo
Jeanne gets more backstory to make up for her lack of plot.
>Alruna and Salamandra didn't get Umbran Elegances
>They still didn't put in Shubara's
Why is Undine so unsatisfying to use? Even if it didn't have the amazing Durga to live up to, it's still just so underwhelming.
Jesus fuck I swear Rodin is harder this time than in the first game. I actually managed to get him down to his last lifebar once. I simply ran right at him and dodged when he tried to hit me, and shot him during Witch Time. He managed to kill me in the second half of the fight despire me abusing the Bracelet of Time so I started over. Ever since then I have not been able to knock off his first lifebar and my previous strategy of run, dodge, shoot no longer works, he will no longer have any of that.
It kind of grew on me after being forced to use it for so long.
Ice Undine on the arms and Chain Chomp on the legs is a fun combination. Really takes advantage of dodge offset. Freeze enemies and then shatter them into pieces with Chain Chomp.
The main thing that bugs me is that the follow-up attacks don't flow like they do with every other weapon. You have to actually wait for Bay to adjust her stance after every move before the ice/flames shoot out.
If you just want to win and don't care about actually gitting gud,
use Rosa, Moon of Mahaa-Kahlaa, and Time Bracelet. Instead of dodging (at all), just spam parries the entire time. Rodin's so aggressive that parries will give you functionally limitless magic and you can burn it all on Time Bracelet PKP.
>you can change the colour of lollipops in cutscenes
HOLY SHIT WHAT?
It doesn't look as smooth and flowing as the other weapons, but all of the damage and utility is in the follow-up. You can just hold that button for as long as you dare to rack up damage, combo points, and freeze/fire.
Launching really, really helps because enemies can't do anything in the air and the follow-up keeps them locked down.
I know I'm replying to a post from 5 hours ago, but I fucking died on the prologue. I just couldn't understand the attack cues that Belief had, so I just kept getting hit.
And this was after playing Bayo 1 without much trouble, so god DAMN I felt bad.
Don't sweat it, man, I had that happen to me in the demo. You pick it up really quickly, just have to learn the tells.
Oh yes. Doesn't count towards item use, either, so you can get pure platinum with it. The WiiU games use the SNES layout, so A is yellow, which is the invincibility one. Pity you can pretty much only use it during the prologue of Bayo 2. She has one during the credits that you can change, but I think it times out by the time you get to the first verse. Not that it really matters during the credits.

>She summons Gomorrah pretty much exclusively for a good portion of the game
I think it's got the same problem that Bayo 1 had, in that it's got too much story for its run time and ends up a clusterfuck. Demons going nutso wasn't really explored as a theme, it was just a symptom of things getting pushed out of balance. Would be great to have a game that explored Inferno a bit better.
Had a dumb idea a couple of days ago, Bayo 3 centres around Bayo and Jeanne's redhead daughter(it's magic, I don't gotta explain shit) and she needs to go down into Inferno to find a demon to contract with because the traditional, not going down to hell method is fucked. She gets to fight demons, then summon them once she's beaten them to take out Angels that are trying to kill her because reasons. Wicked Weaves become more explicitly different for different weapons, to show that she's summoning demon hands from whatever bound to the weapon. At the end she gets a contract and does a Serious Mode boss rush with her newfound power.
In fairness I don't think it's ever stated that Gomorrah turned on her, so to speak, as if it was a betrayal of some acknowledged trust on his part or anything, it was merely the imbalance after Balder's death fucking with the portal thus giving him a chance to break out and fuck shit up. Gomorrah's described as a beast who sees anything and everyone as prey, so even prior to Bayo 2 he'd have probably tried to kill Bayo given the chance, which is probably why he's only ever allowed his neck and head through the portal, whereas others (ones who can be trusted) can come out full form.
That's why you should have played Bayo 1 first.
Gomorrah was her go to demon and in 2 it betrays her.
That's why she say "good to see some of you are still holding your end of the bargain" or something like that. I think it's to madama butterfly.
You also see more Gomorrahs while riding Diomedes in Inferno and Jeanne summons one after Loptr gets depowered so that the game rhymes, so it's not even that she's summoning a specific Gomorrah, it's just one lairy one managed to force the portal open because of the balance of powers being off.
