2010 | Bayonetta

Fond of hack n’ slash games like God of War and Devil May Cry series? Want to try something new and very fresh? try out Platinum Games’ Bayonetta. Bayonetta is named after the sole-protagonist of the game. Bayonetta is a witch and is suffering for her amnesia. Actually, I posted this game very late. The game competed against other popular hack n’ slash games the were released just recently, God of War and Dante’s Inferno, the latter I have finished and PLAT-ed a month ago. Bayonetta is originally planned as an XBOX 360 exclusive, however, game publisher SEGA decided to make PS3 version with the games’ developer, Platinum Games’ permission. This is Hideki Kamiya’s first game after leaving CAPCOM and his work for Devil May Cry series.

Developer(s): Platinum Games (Team Little Angels) (XB360); Nex Entertainment (PS3)
Publisher: SEGA
Designer Hideki Kamiya (director)
Platform(s): PlayStation 3, Xbox 360
Genre(s): Third-person hack and slash, action-adventure
Mode: Single-Player
First Released: October 29, 2009 (JPN)
Native Resolution: 720P
Played On: PlayStation 3

Got my copy from Ate Christine, a TipidPC member. If you want to read the story, check this out. Anyway, I managed to take some snapshot on my R3 copy:

EDIT: Try to watch this music video I made just now (101028), using Windows Live Movie Maker 2011 and Girls’ Generation’s new song, Hoot:


or watch it directly in YouTube

Now it’s time for the judgment.

Packaging: 9/10 – It’s as simple as your girl’s pantsu. Clear and very detailed. Although my copy is R3 and most of the text written on the back are in japanese hanja, still the cover is ver SEXY ^^. It contains 2 manuals. English and the other is Japanese. The English manual is purely black and white colored and the other is full-colored.
Graphics: 9/10 – 720P is enough for games like this. Not the best graphics but enough to show Bayonetta’s thighs, legs, chest, and whatever she can summon during witch time.
Sound: 10/10 – The background music is very good. I love how the theme song titled “Fly Me To The Moon”. Try downloading the full OST of this game here.
Gameplay: 9.5/10 – The game utilized almost the best controls. It is laso fast-paced, just like Hideki Kamiya’s earlier game Devil May Cry. In fact, they share most of the gameplay.
Story: 8.5/10 – the storyline of the game is a bit controversial, for me atleast. The game features Heaven and Hell fighting, with Umbra Witches (Bayonetta and Jeanne) against Lumen Sages (Father Balder and ???) to balance the world. Also, they call the creator named Jubileus? It’s a bit dissappointing, but anyway I will try to forget that. On the other hand, I love the sad part of the game. Like the parts of Bayonetta and Cereza.
Overall: 9.2

Right now I’m trying to hunt trophies until I achieve Platinum. Currently, I’m replaying the game in Normal difficulty.

DIARY | A day full of surprises

Wednesday. A day full of surprises.

There are a lot of things that were surprisingly happened this day. I’ll tell them one by one.

First off, since it’s Wednesday, my time is half-ly dedicated to my training at ACI, while on the afternoon, I should go attend my PHYED01 class. My original plan was to go home first, so I can change clothes, eat lunch and get my sister’s money, so I can buy her the flashdrive she wants to. Around 10AM, I was busy on my training when someone send me an sms message, saying “Sir selling bayonetta po”, with the number +63926721243. The message surprised me. I did not expect that I can have a chance to buy that game now, as in right now. I asked how much (she) would let me buy it. (She) told me it will cost me 1.2k. I asked her if we can meet at Gateway mall or somewhere in Cubao area. (She) told me (she) can’t, but Trinoma is okay, and her name’s Cristine. So I replied back saying that I would avail it now, and will do meet her in Trinoma around 1~2PM. After my training, I hurried up to the Cubao MRT station for a ride. Gosh… it was my first time alone at an MRT unit. While riding on it, I was serious on the outside, while very happy on the inside. Until I reach the North Ave. station, I came out hurriedly and go straight to Trinoma. I remember, I told her that we should meet at McDonald’s on the ground floor. So I came there and waited for her, and her sms replies. But guess what, I’m waiting for so long now, like almost an hour. Her latest sms was “papunta na po”, and i’m getting bored looking at the appliance spree on the center of the mall. I even saw Girls’ Generation’ OH music video on 5 High Definition LCD TVs by LG. Another 10 minutes passed, and I’m feeling strange already. There are many things coming in to my mind, like, “Am I being scammed?”, “Is this another form of a modus?”. Oh well, I guess I can’t help it. I waited til’ 2:30PM, I even ate a quick meal at McDonald’s, I’m already late at my PHYED01 class, so I decided to go through one of the exits of the mall. On the way, I saw American Boulevard, I stopped by for a while. When I came out, I got shocked! I saw some big-fat guy, medium-dark skin, holding a woman’s bag, running on the way to the exit gate. After him was some group of men, in a rush, and shouting “harangan nyo! mga pulis kami!”. After hearing that phrases, my heart started to beat extremely fast. What’s more is that the stores, including American Boulevard, started to close their doors or whatsoever. I saw the guy running, almost 7 feet away from the police men. The funny thing about the situation is that, instead of getting out of the mall through the exit, I saw him running through the comfort room! That was a total joke, really. Finally he got caught, but me, I’m still this guy waiting for the seller. I came back coz’ I get confused if the seller was there already. Well, there’s nothing special the time I arrive again to the meeting place. Then I really decided to take the taxi and go to school. While inside the taxi, someone called me with this number “029001112”. I answered it, and it was actually the seller. She’s apologizing for her being so late. She told me she’ll be there in McDonald’s a minute or two. I decided to come back again and wait for her. I wait about 20minutes, and I’m so late at my class. It’s already 2:50PM, and I keep on calling the same number. Finally, a lady with a man and an infant came. I was sitting in one of McDonald’s. I saw the lady holding something like a blu-ray or what. She saw me too. We had a quick conversation. Finally, the deal’s done and quickly, I go straight to school, forgetting of passing by the house, coz’ I’m really late.

At school, my classmates were already taking up a quiz, so I decided to join them quickly. Thanks to my classmate/friend Cristine of section ID. She helped me pass that quiz. Oh God, I’m starting to get some popularity now, after that CoolPals performance. My classmates, including Cristine, praises me about my costume and how cute I am during that funny performance. She also said that she loves Girls’ Generation too. hmmm… After class, I came home hurriedly.

I arrived in my house around 4:30PM, and quickly took my sister’s money. I ride a taxi again so I can get into SM Fairview quickly. There, I saw Ate Xy and Kuya Ian a.k.a. my Mom and Dad, shopping together. I came straight to PChub, so I can buy this SanDisk 8GB Cruzer slice flash drive. I saw kuya Ryan in there so I asked him about it. He told me, they don’t have stock for the Cruzer Slice today, and gave me Cruzer Blade instead. Well, I guess the Cruzer Blade is somewhat more appealing, specially to my sister. I bought it for 650 bucks.

Also, I bought 12 DVD-Rs on CD Options. Then, I go downstairs to reach Dunkin Donuts, so I can buy a dozen of it. My sister told me to buy there. I also bought a pirated copy of Legaia 2 for the PlayStation 2, coz’ my big brother wanted it.
