I will leave IGN's take on that which I think works both sides of that well and concisely:
"Bayonetta is strong and awesome, but it looks like the game was shot by a pervy cameraman [sic]"

I understand the logic he's following by saying that. But as someone who grew up with lots of Japanese games and anime, that argument doesn't work for me at all.

Sex appeal in many forms in Japanese media is something that is not even a problem, the problem mainly comes from either cultural differences or a lack from someone to make the effort to view things in a open-minded manner.

Then again, a few that has complained about Bayonetta in the past do it out of the insecurities each of those people have/had at the time. Which, at the end of the day, ends up in a discussion where there's much ado about nothing and Bayo keeps being as sexy and fun as it has ever been.

Games get docked for shitty voice acting, poor music, bad visuals and so forth, so why not something that is both consistent and [deemed] tacky that's getting in the way of the person's overall experience?

Read the article that I linked from DualShockers please.

The difficulty in the Lost Crowns Trilogy went as far as it could have gone. And I can't say I share much of the same feelings Rob has with the DLC.

Regarding the Fume Knight, the (Blue) Smelter Demon is much more of a challenge to defeat.

Some of the smartass commentary towards XIII here reminds me of the Spoony One.

This thread reminded me that I absolutely hated that upgrading was pretty much useless until post-game.  They have this complex system in place that is barely useful at all until you start taking on stronger things than the final boss and you suddenly need it. Badly.

Can't say I have problems with how devs wanted to keep things as balanced as possible when they mostly did a decent job at it.

Edit: Also, I'm never killing an Adamantoise again.  Grinding them for hours was the worst part of XIII's post-game.  For fun, try fighting one with the fast-forward command in XIII-2 and see how horribly you do even using the "right" strategy.

You gotta work to kill an Adamantoise. It feels good when you defeat one, though, the poor thing is just there minding its own business and you go to one of them only to ruin his day.

Fight for Life -- BethBlog

"Depending on which difficulty setting you play on there are four in all, with only two available when you start a new game the challenge ramps up considerably. The first option, "Casual", is no walk in the park, but the gap between Casual and "Survival" is quite a jump as the change also affects gameplay elements such as puzzles and default settings. Survival will definitely put you through the wringer, as features like the detection meter which in Casual, automatically puts an "eye icon" on the HUD that displays whether enemies are aware of your presence must be toggled on, and some puzzles are altogether absent in the lower difficulty setting. Figuring out which mode you want to tackle the game on will depend on how much you relish testing your mettle, but taking the tougher route isn't without its rewards."

I haven't gone against my word. If the tone of my comments related to FF are read in a tone or are understood in a way I didn't intented then that's too bad.

Every Last Bullet Video Feature


Exploring The Evil Within w/ Adam Sessler -- Bethesda Softworks, YouTube

Or alternatively if you can't watch any of the videos directly on YouTube; BTS Link #1 & Link #2 -- All Games Beta

WTF to those system requirements. Has to be for 4K at max settings, or this is the least PC optimized game of 2014.

TEW is gonna make for a good technical article for Digital Foundry just like Rage and Wolfenstein: TNO did. Interested in reading their impressions.

With lingerie and everything, the alt. costumes lack any sense of style to get bothered with the fanservice IMO.
