This is the best hack n slash game ever made.

Prove me wrong.

Pro tip: You can't.

DMC4's combat is better, graphics, more characters and more options for combat.
DMC3's structure, level design, story..basically everything else is better.

The only thing that is on par is music.
I still play DMC4 more though, what is wrong with me.

We already have. It's "CUHRAYZEE"
>>
>>323669941
Definitely not Hack and slash. Hack and slash is for GoW and the like, not games focused on style and complex combos. Though I would say character action/spectacle fighter/Cuhrazy, is a subset of hack and slash (with the exception of Godhand)

Is Bayonetta 2 worth buying a Wii U to play it ?

Been thinking about buying one to play Wind Waker HD and Xenoblade Chronicles.
>>
>>323670350
No. Wii u emulation is making a lot of progress. Just wait
>>
>>323670381
Alright.

I think the Wii U would only be worth buying if you had at least 2 more people to play with.

Glad to hear that emulation is coming.

it's character action, diablo could be called hack and slash

You wanna know something hilarious?
I found this Capcom book the other day in Barnes & Nobles that was like a character encyclopedia.

On Dante's page, the author or whoever wrote it credited DMC as the founder of the "character action" genre

It was kinda bizarre because I've been calling DMC hack n' slash for as long as I can remember
>>
>>323670507
Yeah. But 300$ are not that easy to get.

Still interested in buying it tho,

Maybe the price will drop when NX comes.
>>
>>323670661
Bayo 2 physical copies are stupid expensive now thanks to Smash fags. You'll be paying more than MSRP for it
>>
>>323669941
>character action
That's a stupid name for a genre.
>>
>>323670661
>300$
it's gonna be around 500$ for some games + a pro controller
300$ gets you 1 bundled game.
>>
>>323670350
No.

But it also has Wonderful 101, which helps. Then if you're interested in Smash/Kart/Musou you can probably justify making the leap. But for Bayo 2 alone? No. It's a fantastic game but not worth an entire console on it's own.
>>

It is if you have a job.

A bundle will do just fine to start with.

I can buy everything else later.

I can get a new one for about 40$.

Kinda expensive, but I expect it to be worth it.
>>
Diablo series and even Marvel Heroes is better
>>
I just call them action games. That's kind of a vague way to put it, but most other action-oriented games have some other qualifiers I can refer to them with, whereas DMC, Bayonetta, etc., feel more like purely action games.
>>
I REALLY like how W101 has no combo strings and instead is about chaining together moves which can all be done raw. Just a shame about the lack of moves. Seriously only three per weapon? You can't use stick inputs to do all four moves with your assist morphs? It's such great combat fundamentals let down by a lack of variety and depth.

A wonderful 101 sequel would probably be the best thing ever but >5000 copies sold
>>
>>323672836
If the game had been designed with assist morphs in mind from the beginning, you'd probably be able to do more with them. But they just came up with the idea a few months before the game released.
>>
>>323670869

That's what networking is for - abuse the power of knowing people, nepotism especially.
>>
>>323672971
Literally all they'd have had to do to make assist morphs useful and fun is allow stick inputs when pressing X to create them just like the main morphs. As it is now they're hard locked into one move. Assist gun always does cyclone for instance.

Also the game desperately needs a style system beyond the basic combo system. I've seen people do absolutely crazy shit but there's no reason to because you can get high combo without huge variety.

Can we agree on this?

Eh i prefer MGR,also i cant decide if 3 or 4 is better i liked both a lot,maybe 3 for nostalgia points.
>>
>>323674668
Bayonetta 1 was designed with the intention of you not relying on Witch Time the better you got at the game. Gracious and Glorious is supposed to be your first taste of that on a normal playthrough, and the highest difficulty disables Witch Time entirely, except for special circumstances.
>>
>>323675261
I guess.

I like the idea of the Must Style mode they added. Didn't really try it out that much, but I wouldn't mind seeing something like that in other Devil May Cry games.
>>
>>323675060
shit sorry I misread your post
really fucking tired right now
Hell they both seem like what would be considered hacknslash and all those other names, just a bit shittier looking

The original game suffered from a huge amount of flaws.
>no manual lock on, bad auto lock on
>bad style system determined purely by damage
>weapon locked enemies is the complete antithesis of what DMC's gameplay is about


The rerelease fixed a ton of problems, gave us must-style, and turbo mode is a welcome addition. It's still nowhere near DMC3/4 tier and it has like no good memorable boss fights but it's actually surprisingly good now.
>>
>>323675261
No, since I'm not going to bother going back to that shit-heap if the best it can manage is, "It's sort of alright now!"
>>
>>323669967
I'm inclined to agree with this list

DMC 3's level design is some of the worst I've ever seen. It has some great points as a game but level design definitely isn't one of them.
>>
>>323669941
Whoever calls them "character action" deserves to be castrated.

>>323677675
Pretty fitting that level design is the one thing DmC DIDN'T fuck up.

>>323677731
There was no level design in DmC.
>>
>>323669941
DMC4:SE site calls it Stylish Action genre.
>>
I like DMC3 but honestly I didn't care for most of the bosses. There's Vergil, Agni and Rudra, and that's it, the rest are mediocre or shit. DMC4 recycled its bosses way too often but at least I didn't hate fighting them (except Sanctus).

Also DMC4 has style switching which is amazing. If only the game was actually fucking finished.
>>

its a good name tbqh

This. Bayonetta 2 becomes best purchase cause it comes with both games.

But yeah
