Mmm...Yahtzee love pillow...

Joe Deadman:
Good luck on getting borderlands working, it would be interesting to see especially with yahtzees tendency to hate rpgs (or was that just jrpgs?).

I have no problem getting Borderlands to work. And since that's a problem exclusive to PC users, I assume that Yahtzee is wasting all his "hard earned" money on Branston Pickle and Cornettos rather than on a decent PC.

Actually he's already said that he thinks Borderlands is shit and has no intention of reviewing it. Because it's an RPG and has a multiplayer hook, he has no interest and can't bring himself to play it for more than five minutes. I respect that not everyone likes Borderlands, but if you're goning to play a game for five minutes and then declare it shit. I really can't respect you as a reviewer.

Unless you're playing something like Custer's Revenge.

MUST ... BREAK ... NEWS ... BEFORE ... 360 ... FAN ... BOY!

It loads faster on the 360, as annoying as that is =/

Kanashe:
Well more bullshit from this hat wearin' cumbucket. Man, I honestly pray they'll be a day when he gets run over by a bus or somethin', just so all you sheep would cry and greeve. Though, it actually woulden't be a loss, less talentless scum left. I knew that Australia sucked when it came to talent, comedy or even good entertaiment ('cause what do they have to offer aside from kangaroos and coalas fucking each other), but Yahtzee just cemented my theory.

*Cough* Troll *Cough*

Report and move on

Frank_Sinatra_:
While I usually don't take Yahtzees reviews seriously I do have to agree with this one. The sexual exploitation of this game is actually keeping me away from it.
I'm getting sick of games that overuse sex in their games.

I still feel like Bayonetta was one of the few games to showcase a strong, sexy, powerful female lead, the likes of which we rarely see in videogames and I really hope that Yahtzee focuses his written piece this week on that. I love Bayonetta to pieces for what she represents, and while I agree that she is pretty ridiculously proportioned, I still find her attractive.

Bayonetta is woman! Rah!

Yahtzee is British, Philistine.

Meh, British, Australian. They all suck when it comes to comedy and can go to hell for all I care.

Hugh Laurie. Monty Python. Your argument is invalid.

Sucks, and super sucks.

What's up with you people who are saying "I agree with you, I won't get this game." Did you miss the part where he said it was fun and he recommended the game? Hard to miss considering it's something he hardly ever does.

Anyway, I'm happy to see Yahtzee give Bayonetta a fair look for what it actually is. Hopefully he's turning over a new leaf of saying good things about the fun aspects of a game.

Good review to my utmost surprise. Thought it would be his new most-hated game, not that he'd actually like it. Actually didn't even *mention* Bayonetta's completely unlikeable character, and that's saying a lot.

Honestly needs to drop the part where he assigns the "good" and "evil" alignment to individual parties in the game - he himself once said doing that was bullshit. And him not knowing how to pronounce a Japanse name is frustrating when at one point he said that not all anime is bad, but to even create an opinion like that, he'd HAVE to at least know how to pronounce Japanese, for god's sake.

No desire to play this game, before or after the review, but I am sure happy to have had it.

Its a shame you had to play the PS3 version it was really badly coded port and therefore lags and takes ages to load and doesn't look as good or control as well... I enjoyed it but, the cheap deaths and enemy telegraphing pissed me off too

Hilarity is the norm but you should have tried the 360 version so load times wouldn't have been featured in your weekly rant. And yes it's over the top but in the same way House of the Dead Overkill was. Couple that with fewer technical issues and you may have enjoyed it /gasp

What I have to wonder is, how the hell would you pull the trigger of a gun that's connected to your boot? I mean seriously, if you had pistols in your stelletos, the barrel would get more and more clogged with every other step and most likely explode every time you pulled the special trigger with your toes.

Normally I'd say a wizard did it, but in this case it's a witch.

"HOW ABOUT I AGREE TO REVIEW BORDERLANDS WHEN IT AGREES TO SHOP CRASHING ON ME?"

Ouch. Okay, okay, shutting up, I liked the review.

Great review, had me laughing as alot of recent reviews haven't.

Oh thank god I'm not the only one who isn't forgetting Bayonetta is tits, arse, and offensively heavy levels of Japanese insanity.

I likewise have no problems running borderlands even with my ancient computer and enjoy it (even with the connection issues on the pc version) however I was just reffering to a part in the credits where he said "how about I review borderlands when it agrees to stop crashing".

Personally i've never viewed yahtzee as a reviewer he's more of a comedic critic in the purest form of the word as he picks out every flaw in a game and makes fun of it. To tell the truth I can totally picture yahtzee cashing in his paycheck and then rushing down to a store to buy cornettos and branston pickle thanks for getting that stuck in my head.

Yay Yathzee is back! Well technically he never went anywhere but reviews are back to the old standards or better. Great.

I kinda liked the game... Though the sex appeal was wasted on me. I did kinda hate how every level after the first gave me a failing grade. It wouldn't be a problem if some of these bastards didn't have some really cheap always gonna hit you no matter what moves. >_<

Good job explaining the plot, he did much better than I did. I still don't know whether he likes the game though. Also why didn't he get the 360 version? Any ounce of research would have told him they did a poor port.

Bayonetta is a very solid game with crappy port to PS3 and terrible marketing campaign that made everyone think it was a softcore porn game.
Yes, if you like DMC or GOW you should get it, it is a great game and has the best combat ever in the genre. Or at least until GOW3 beats it! And the QTE's aren't that terrible, there are too few of them so you won't expect them when they show, but if you fail them you wont have to replay more than 10 seconds so it isn't very punishing.

Kamiya is getting better at putting the really cool action in his cutscenes through the gameplay, as evidenced by the Torture Attacks in this game. But yeah, I was always frustrated that you'd be resorted to be seeing the coolest action scene in just a cutscene, like Dante killing demons with snooker balls and cues.

I'm not a fan of his games though, with the focus on just building a big combo and end-level scores with boring AI. And this game, it's sometimes visually too much crap going on in the screen.

Not as good as Darksiders. But I did totally forget it was Wednesday and get a little giddy when I saw I had something to watch.

Good stuff

I rented it, it's a fun game but given the current game climate, I won't be missing it when I return it today.

EDIT: Load times aren't too bad on the 360, I barely noticed them. And you could always install to the HDD if you found it to be a problem.

I'm enjoying Bayonetta a lot atm. It's a lot of fun and very challenging too.

The review is very good and I actually agree on many of the points. I too was very confused with Bayonetta's extremely long legs.

i think he did the game justice. lol i was expecting him to talk about god of war again.

Best part of this video for me was the subtle dig at Twilight. Thank god some people recognise that shite for what it is.

I absolutely loved this game, and I still agree with Yahtzee. The QTEs are a bit blegh, but I got the plot first time round because I like crazy twisty narrative. The oversexualisation is incessant and pesky, but it's not really massively attractive so much as it is just a symptom of everything else in the game being cranked up past eleven. The three core themes - Bayonetta's Theme, Fly Me to the Moon, and one who's name I've forgotten - do get overplayed, but they're more than made up for by the rest of the music and visuals, which are mindblowingly awesome.

I guess we'll be waiting for Extra Punctuation to hear about two mind-blowingly awesome vehicle sections and the many, many references to other games in Sega/Platinum/Clover/Team Little Devils history.

Also, the loading times are PS3-specific. The Xbox ones are much, much, much better, and they don't trigger just for walking across a room or picking up an item. Just at the major transitions from area to area, and not for the (slightly too frequent) cutscenes.

sephiroth1991:
Good epidode long legs indeed

I had doubts about this game from the demo and you have sold me to not get it.

How did he sell you not to get it? He did not say it was a bad game, heck by Yahtzee standards he said it was "good." You people need to stop taking Yahtzee's reviews as gospel, I love his Zero Punctuation series, but I can honestly say I have never said, "OH, YAHTZEE HATES THIS GAME, I SHALL AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE!!" IMO Yahtzee's reviews are more for the lulz than the actual review. Yeah, he knows what he's talking about, and yeah he makes some great points, but he often seems to pick the games faults apart piece by piece on purpose.

Phenom828:
Oh my god did he ACTUALLY LIKE IT! or did i misread the entire boob, i mean review?

yup, I think he liked it... I mean, in his own way. I have the game and it is fun.

No...

He just thought it was so so, the word being adequate which he used.

As for me, it's a renter. It's got a lot of camp you're either willing to invest in or not, but besides all the sexual innuendos nothing else interesting to talk about if the sexed up tongue in cheek humor didn't do it for you.

I figured the story would be horrendous and nonsensical so I didn't pay much attention, the combat and difficulty wasn't hard just clusterfucky. Even though at the beginning I found the game fun, eventually I lost interest near the end and returned it.

I think Dante's Inferno will be better...it's more like God of War and less like DMC...lol

They've been saying the PS3 version is inferior since forever ago, Yatzhee you fool.

little bear:
so....the game is the game good?

I don't mind sexual innuendo's and all, and yahtzee said the game actually has ass loads worth the combos. but I kinda lost the message at the end of the video.

If you've been with Yahtzee from the beginning you'd realize that unless a game is mind numbingly bad or amazingly awesome, he rarely says it's "good" or "bad". To Yahtzee games are games, and if they don't make you squirt blood out of your eye sockets they might be worth a look. Like I said earlier, his reviews are more for the lulz.

Hilarious review and it looks like he liked it!

I'm loving the game and plan to go through it a few more times myself.

Best one for a while. Everyone should go out and get this so that he has more material by the same guys to review in the future.
