My biggest problem was the lack of a cohesive "system" in Bayonetta.  Dodging some moves would trigger witch time while others wouldn't, which lead to lots of cheap hits and deaths.  Combine that with enemies that have some rather cheap attacks, a fucking awful camera that took three steps back from every advancement in the genre, and some of the absolute worst QTEs in any game EVER and you have a rather frustrating experience.  I died a lot playing Bayonetta, and every death felt cheap and undeserved.  I found DMC3 to be easier, and I know how nuts that sounds!

I agree. Bayonetta just felt like 'OH SHIT THIS IS RANDOM AND INSANITY AND BWAHHHHH,' whereas in DMC3 if you died, it was because you screwed up (usually). Nothing more satisfying than dodging attacks with trickster and then delivering unholy smiting.

Just talking about DMC makes me automatically shiver in disgust thinking of DMC2. I still own it but there were sooooooooo many things wrong with it.

DMC2 remains one of the worst examples of a rushed product meant to meet demand and failing miserably at everything the original game set out to establish. 

Why does that sounds so familiar...

I have a pair of hater pants for both Bayonetta and Heavy Rain.

I also have serious love for the first Ninja Gaiden.

Good podcast.

I find the best way to get the podcast is to either use iTunes or subscribe to the RSS feed through GoogleReader.  We always make sure to post a news story when a podcast is released.  Sorry for the confusion.

I just got a few of my friends into the podcast.  They said they love the discussions and they really enjoy the theme song to the Podcast.

No problem :)

I will also say this, I've listened to tons of podcasts and this is THE best podcast I've ever heard.  Everyone on here has a great personality, intelligent conversations and plenty of funny moments :)

That sounded like a back-of-the-box quote, IA.  Your check is in the mail!

Looking at all this DMC talk makes me want to play 3 again. That game was perfect and a pain in the ass.

We need an HD version a la God of War.

I sense DMC 1-3 will get the HD treatment at some point.  Hopefully Onimusha gets one too.
