Denpa, Bayonetta, Riptide and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate merch!

I'm trying to make a serious effort towards trimming down my backlog this year, so I decided to give Bayonetta one more shot. I've started and quit the game twice before, but it comes up in conversation so often and in such positive terms that I'd feel like I wasn't doing my critical due diligence unless I gave it a least one more try.

Vanquish Third Opinion

If this Combat had a Taste, it would be Quite Delicious

HIGH: Exploding an enemy with their own projectile as it launches in glorious slow motion.

LOW: The unskippable first-person interactive cut-scenes bring the pacing to a halt.

WTF: Why is Sam's visor set at his mouth when he exposes his entire face to smoke?

Vanquish Second Opinion

From Blueprint to Bible and Back Again

HIGH Every time I backflipped off of a gorgie, slowed time in midair and blew the heads off of three others before touching the ground. This happened often.

LOW Restarting a stage and getting blown away by a starship-class laser before the chapter title had even faded from the screen.

WTF A tie between the dancing gorgies, and the fact that not one of them was doing the robot.

Vanquish Review

Shoot, Run, Take Cover and… Slide?

HIGH Taking down two giant robots at once with barely a scratch.

LOW Overheating the suit while surrounded by enemies.

WTF Why do weapon levels get reset when replaying stages?
