Were you smart enough to buy Bayonetta 2 before Nintendo sold it as a standalone title?

https://twitter.com/NintendoAmerica/status/687683102924247042
>>
I'm never buying Bayo 2
>>
Wait what? You couldn't buy it by itself before now?
>>
>>323922447
I think it was always a standalone game over. Had to buy a special version for both.
>>
>>323922696
>>323922726
Not sure about other places, but US bundled it with the 1st game on all physical copies.
>>
>>323922447
Yes.

>>323922696
>>323922726
Here in Burgerland it's always come with the first game.
>>
No, because I'm not from Clapistan I don't need to put up with NoA's retarded shit.

does Bayo 2 require the shitty gamepad?
>>
>>323923202
No
>>
>>323922447
Bayo 2 alone is like playing Lord Of Destruction before Diablo 2. It's like watching a reunion special before the thing they're reuniting about.
>>
Will the first game be sold stand alone?
But what do I care since I have them already.
>>
>>323922447

I literally bought it the very first day it came out when the shelves were packed with copies and nobody wanted to be seen purchasing one. Even went to gamestop and had to go through a girl cashier to buy it as well. I feel bad for all the fags who have to pay a bloated price or buy the standalone game now.

Who the fuck owned a wii u and didn't buy one of the only good games to come out for it as soon as possible?

Though I did end up hunting down a copy for a friend for Christmas. I went to all of 2 shops and bought it without a fuss, didn't even know it got rare.
>>
>>323923323

you can play both with the pro controller
>>
>>323923259
eShop only. It's basically a "fuck you for taking so long, faggot" from Nintendo.

>>323923323
Gamepad is not mandatory to that either.

>>323923407
The bundles are going high on eBay. Collectors are fucked.

Why would you feel bad for them? They only care about Bayonetta because of smash now, fuck'em. Should have bought this shit day one.

This is true, but honestly i'm just glad Bayonetta is becoming a hot ticket item, the more it sells, the better chance at a third game.
>>
>>323923786
I think I like smoldering vixen Bayo more than cute spider Bayo.

Ah, and it feels so good having it, especially if you only played it on PS3 before.
>>

I'm with you there, what a marked improvement that first game on Wii U is over the PS3 version. Holy shit.

>>323923202
It does for an in-game achievement. Basically during a cutscene you poke Bayonetta a few times on the pad screen. But other than that it's perfectly playable with the Pro controller.

>>323922447
Nah, Already finished the game, sold for twice the price I paid, Wii U exploit incoming this month I'm gonna get it back for Free

why did bayonetta 2 sold so bad?
explain to me, with details
>>
>>323925286
It's on the Wii U, and the first game didn't light up sales charts either. I thought Nintendo only published it to spearhead their now pretty much dead grab for the hardcore market, what with all those launch day ports.

I'm curious which did worse, Wonderful 101 or Bayonetta 2.
>>
>>323922447
Oh boy, so they'll be printing new copies? Because right now Bayo 2 costs 120 for a new copy.

>>
>>323925286
>It's on the Wii U
so? elaborate on this point
>>
>>323925836
The Wii U is a poor selling console and the game is not in the main market demographic of the console.
>>
Why are people shit posting about this?
Sequels don't usually come bundled with the original game.
Now Bayo 2 is being released normally.
You guys are really scraping the bottom of the barrel for things to bitch about anonymously on the Internet.
>>
>>323925286
They made very VERY few physical copies because nintendo practices in artificial scarcity. They make more money if you purchase digitally so they intentionally print few physical copies. Bayo 2 is impossible to find new for MSRP.
>>
>>323925728
>>>Made by Platinum guaranteeing low sales
Ummm.....
>>
I couldn't stand playing the game with the game pad and for some reason after purchasing a pro controller it still didn't feel right to me. I guess it's just going to take a bit for me to get use to but I can't seem to do as well as I do with dualshock controllers.

I pretty much grew up exclusively with SNES controllers, a couple of handhelds, dualshock controllers, and KB/M. I've never used anything else. How fucking long does it take to get good muscle memory for a new controller for fast paced games? Shit is driving me nuts. I wasn't this bad at the first Bayo game on PS3. I bought the Wii U just for Bayo 2.
>>
>>323926098
Why would you even bitch about this? Right now these are your options if you'd like to play Bayo 2

>Pay 50 dollars for a digital copy that takes up 70% of the wii u's HDD
>Pay 80-100 dollars for a physical copy
>>
>>323925759
To the people who wanted the bundle anon.

Of course this means that Nintendo will reprint it. Which is actually pretty good..and then it will jump right back up to $70/80 something.
>>
>>323926025
>game is not in the main market demographic of the console
what do you mean? tell me more about Wii U ain market demographic
>>
>>323926317
The bundle costs you like 120 dollars m8 and still exists on ebay and amazon for that price.

I don't see how this is a bad thing because physical copies of bayo 2 are all gone and the only ones left are second hand ones sold at collectors prices.
>>
>>323926134
Are you implying they make games that sell? Star Fox Zero (which apparently they're co-developing) will outsell every other Platinum game combined within it's first hour of launch
>>
>>323922447
don't you mean dumb enough?
>>
>>323926427
Mario
Zelda
Donkey Kong
Smash Bros (though now this works in her favor)

Basically, family friendly solidly built Nintendo franchises that have been around for a while.
>>
>>323922447
I liked the first game but I didn't buy the sequel because her short hair looks like shit.

I'm not even joking.

>Got Bayo 2+1 for 35 dollaroos

feels bad gamestop is leaving PR tho

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance sold alright, I think Transformers Devastation also did okay, if only for it playing to G1 nostalgia.

>Basically, family friendly solidly built Nintendo franchises that have been around for a while
What does that prove?

>>323926696
You can change her look to the classic one. I prefer the short hair personally, but the option is there.
>>
>>323926696
what a pleb

>>323926696
You can change to her original hair style if you're bothered that much.

Also you have shit taste.

>>323922447
Anyone getting Bayonetta now solely due to the Smash hype is a faggot and deserves to have pay a bloated price. I can't stand Smash bandwagon fags.

He's referring to how hard it was to find and how much copies went for after she got announced for Smash. Smashdrones need a cross-over game to tell them what to buy. It's pretty pathetic.
>>
>>323926696
I love long hair on women, but I prefer her short hair look if only because it isn't shaped into a stupid cone.

No I was not. I'd like to purchase the edition that includes the first game but scalpers probably sell it for $100 now
>>
>>323927817
They were out of print and impossible to find well before that. And no shit the character being announced for the game raised interest and popularity, that's how things work. Are you people retarded or just trying to find any benign reason you can to insult others?
>>
>>323927963
>And no shit the character being announced for the game raised interest and popularity

Yes, because Smashdrones need a cross-over game to tell them what to buy. Bayonetta 2 had been out for ages and was marketed but still sold like shit on release. Now she's in Smash and everyone wants to buy the game now? They are fucking drones, there is no other explanation.
>>
>>323922447
I'm waiting for the emulator. Fuck Nintendo.
>>
It's been out for a while now. It's your own fault.
>>
>>323928286
Again, this can only help her chances for a Bayonetta 3.

They're fucking sheep, but whatever, if it helps in the end it helps in the end. I'm safe with my day 1 copy with both games, so they can go through the hell of finding a copy or just buying the stand alone.
>>

The Wii U didn't sell nearly as much before SSB4 was released.
>>
>>323928286
>smashfags
Except it's not even just smashfags. Her introduction to smash raised awareness of her games for EVERYONE. I became interested because of her being announced for smash but I don't even OWN Smash bros, nor do I plan to get it to play her. It just reminded me her games existed and made me interested.

You are upset about nothing.
>>
>>323925651
Wonderful 101 did way worse. There is literally no reason on earth that it would have ever done better. It's the same type of game but abstracted and less visually exciting, tokusatsu heroes aren't as popular as sexy witch girls, and it didn't have the benefit of being the sequel to a very well regarded game.

>>
>>323926949
Really? You can't stand them? Why? What exactly are they doing that's so heinous that you can't stand them.

All that's happening is Nintendo put a character into their most popular game, and now that people know about her, they want to play her game to see what it's like. What the fuck is there to be upset about.

Don't be so overdramatic, especially went it's not warranted.
>>
I get why they're reprinting Bayo 2, but why standalone? Do they not have the rights to continue selling physical copies of Bayo 1? Would they have to pay extra to Sega? I just don't understand.
>>

I got the special yuro edition at launch, so yes
>>
>>323930595
Because they're idiots who decided to drum up interest in something they had no interest in selling properly.
>>
>>323930550
Because it spells out the reason Nintendo doesn't get any good 3rd party support often. It's install base are full of Nintendrones that don't pay attention to anything but Nintendo games. Hence why despite Muramasa originally being on Wii, Vanillaware said "forget it" and put it's remaster on the Vita despite it being a "dead console".
>>
>>323925286
But it didn't sell bad you retards.
It sold way more than Bayo 1 did pre bargin bin status.
