I play a lot of video games and I have the bad habit of buying more games before finishing the ones I have. I decided to take a honest look at my uncompleted collection and had to shake my head a bit. One of my new year’s resolutions is to finish as many of these games as I can and try not to be so distracted by trophy hunting.
For those of you curious of what games these might be I’ve compiled some lists.
Our favorite Sarah Palin look-alike makes her triumphant return as a Wii U exclusive. The over-the-top action brawler with one of most unique characters from the last generations is ready to take down even more angels and demons. Is was the long wait worth it?.
It’s hard to believe that Bayonetta 2 is right around the corner. A lot of buzz was generated around this sequel when it was first announced. Even if you didn’t play it or had issues with the character herself you knew what this game was and now it’s a Wii U exclusive. I have to applaud Nintendo for helping to get this game developed.
It’s funny that my only experience with Bayonetta is with the demo of the first game and my second experience is with the demo of the sequel.
The demo is short but straight to the point. After a short tutorial you’re killing angels on fighter jets, a train moving on a collapsing bridge and flying in the sky above skyscrapers. The combat controls feel great and the animations are fluid and awesome.
I’ve been playing a bunch of triple A action games in the past few months and Bayonetta 2 is better than most if not all of them. Bayonetta is strong, fast and completely in control. You never feel that the controls betray you and you know the reason why you got hit. The dodging gives you enough invincibility so you can attack as hard as you want with only your reactions to blame if you missed a dodge. Most importantly this game has a lot of style. Hitting enemies with giant high heeled feet and fists of hair is incredibly satisfying.
Bayonetta 2 looks to be a fantastic action game that stands out from all the hard core violent action games that surround it, hopefully the story won’t be so cheesy. This is a big win for Wii U owners and it’s another game to add to the short list of must haves on the console.
