And now for a musical interlude...

Perhaps you've seen Sega's recent commercial for the game Bayonetta?

It's an oddly subdued (well, considering the subject) and classy commercial for such a bombastic game, and what helps it to achieve this effect is the music playing in the background: Skream's "Let's Get Ravey" Mix of La Roux's "In for the Kill."

I love game commercials. They usually represent everything BUT the game that is being sold, and this eerie accompaniment is no exception. The real Bayonetta includes an earful of bizarre J-pop.

Sans ethics and damn fun? Sega's Madworld and House of the Dead Overkill

Sans ethics and damn fun? Sega's Madworld and House of the Dead Overkill

MadWorld comes closer to the kind of inherently "ethical" gameplay that Miguel Sicart (The Ethics of Computer Games) associates with the voyeuristic gorefest Manhunt. Sicart calls Manhunt an exemplary ethical title in the sense that it offers a "closed, mirroring" ethical system of gameplay that compels the player-subject to adhere to rules that become increasingly ghastly and, if fully utilized, so depraved that it causes the "virtuous" player to be self-reflective. This realization, though tied to unethical gameplay, is itself an ethical end-product of the design and the experience of the player.

Bayonetta includes one-switch mode for disabled gamers

As Gus Mastrapa writes in GameLife, Platinum Games's upcoming brawler Bayonetta will feature a mode which allows gamers to play through the entire game using a single button. The title, which will be released for the XBox 360 and the PS3, is, essentially, a mainstream one-switch game.
