Screenshots look weird but it still looks great and smooth in motion so...... why care about screenshots again?

#52 Posted by Litchie (16369 posts) -

I love how everyone bitching about the graphics doesn't understand that the game looks better in motion. I'd also much rather have my game running in 60fps than having it looking good on screenshots and run like shit, like a ton of PS3 games.

I can't wait for this game.

I'm sure it looks that bad because it's a compressed to hell screenshot.

Yep, spot on.

Question: is the WiiU magically incapable of doing any sort of AA?

It can do AA. AA was used in Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut.

EEEW those jaggies.

#59 Posted by _Matt_ (8924 posts) -

Also, this game looks so ugly, I can't even work out why.

I enjoyed Bayonetta, but I don't think enough to actually be psyched about Bayonetta 2. I might get it just to support the game and Nintendo, but not at full price. I'm honestly not good (or patient enough) to perfect the many combos and specials the game has. I basically button mash and play on easy.

#61 Edited by Star0 (443 posts) -

It seems to be the case that whenever there are relatively complex models in-game developers are forced to sacrifice on textures and that's made worse by the poor AA. This looks ghastly to me and I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me Bayonetta 2 was a Dreamcast title. I think the Wii U can't replicate metallic surfaces very well. I've noticed that in Mario Kart 8 and it's the same here. Not really a fan of the art style, it's quite generic fantasy stuff if you ask me.

OT: Mario Kart 8 looks much better than this, in my opinion, but I guess there's a lot more going on in this game so they had to cut back.

Deus Ex wasn't 1080p/60fps though. The Wii U doesn't has the horsepower for all that + AA. That's why I believe that the game will end up being 720p just like it happened to Mario Kart. The game was demonstrated and touted as a 1080p/60fps title but ended up being 720p/60fps. And this is a game that has incredibly shitty textures, geometry and effects. It looks good but that's because of the art-style. Meanwhile Bayonetta is a much more complex game graphic wise.

#63 Edited by gpuking (2888 posts) -

That is one butt ugly looking game man, lighting and AA are completely non existent.

@Desmonic said:

Yay! It does AA!..............on a old-gen port........of a not so visually demanding game.........but hey, AA, right? :D

You asked if it does AA. You didn't say what kind of game.

Did I say it could do AA at 1080p @ 60? No. That wasn't part of the question, so don't go about moving the goal post.

#65 Posted by Heirren (17293 posts) -

I don't think it looks bad and I'm not a fan of the series at all. But why does it matter anyways? This whole graphic thing is done with. After Uncharted and the next batch of ps4/xone games come out, the two consoles are going to start looking very dated anyways. It is similar to how psvita came out and wowed people for a minute. People said 3ds sucked and was underpowered. Yet here we are with smart phones that demolish the psvita--graphics just don't matter that much.

#66 Edited by Star0 (443 posts) -

@Heirren: Smartphones that demolish the PS Vita? What what? You seem to be of the crowd that believe uber realism should be the end goal of any system. The Wii U is a very capable system, the games just need to be tailored to make the most of the hardware. Look at Yoshi's Wooly World, for example. It looks wonderful and there's nothing like that on the PS4. The closest thing to it will probably be LBP3, but graphically it's no slouch.

#67 Posted by Bread_or_Decide (17752 posts) -

Oh man I can't wait. Also a great chance for me to finally play the original.

I'm confused because it sounds like you are reiterating what I had just said.

Am I the only person that hated Bayonetta? lol...and those screens aren't pretty.

I liked it the first time I played it but the game didn't age well. The music, the story and the gameplay are intolerable.

I wonder how Edge feels about that 10 now because Eurogamer did a retrospective and ended up saying that the game was inferior to DMC4 after all the shit they talked about Bayonetta evolving the genre and shit. But that's just how all PG's games are. Cool concept that gets boring real fast.

Was it the same guy that reviewed Bayonetta that did the DMC4 retrospective? I dont think it was which explains different views, it'd be more interesting if the same guy review both games and gave completely different scores and in the retrospective changed his mind.

One of many.

Bayonetta got points on the fluid combat mechanics.
Everything else, it was crap on. Graphics, story, characters, bosses, art, design.. it sucked in everything but it got the combat gameplay right.
The game is a J-pop anime cheese fest with a character who attacks with her hair in the nude and with guns...

A type of game for the 'other' anime crowd.
The game does not look good for a 'next gen' game and looks a lot similar to Bayonetta PS3.
Just shows how far behind the Wii U is to PS4/X1/PC's graphical output.

Wii U owners are hpyed for Bayonetta 2 because Wii U owners really don´t have anything else to play.

When this game was on PS3 and Xbox 360 then those SAME WII OWNERS SAID THAT THIS GAME SUCKS. Suddenly now when it´s the only Wii U game then suddenly Nintendo fanboys love this game.

#73 Edited by vl4d_l3nin (971 posts) -

Hopes:

- An arcade mode after first completion, that eliminates cut scenes.

- Ability to access discovered alfheims from the menu, prior to beating them all.

- have one QTE pop up, the game makes fun of it, and then never have another one.

- 2D side-scoller homage.

- Space out the checkpoints at higher difficulties.

- Have an option to spawn a target in training (practice air combos)

- Less Luka and Enzo, more Bayonetta trash talking angels.

Congrats. You figured out how fandom works: it's shit unless it's my shit.

I am. Haven't had a Nintendo console since the 64, or even played any Nintendo games on console since then, so I'm actually curious about the WIIU and first party titles.

#75 Posted by freedomfreak (40883 posts) -

YOU KNOW

I'm not interested in playing this with the gamepad, because fuck that. Oh my freakgoodness. How much I would like that game to be bundled with a Bayonetta themed pro-controller.

I'd lose my shit.

#76 Posted by mems_1224 (47230 posts) -

i have no idea what anything is in any of those shots.

#77 Posted by Speak_Low (1097 posts) -

The 720p jaggies were put in on purpose. They give her weapons more serrated damage potential

And as for why everything is so blurry and last-gen, Kamiya realized the amount of dev work (wrestling with that stupid 1GB RAM budget) vs. the meager reward wasn't worth it anymore when you work on a failing Nintendo console, and said "F it" to his team.

#78 Posted by big_mak523 (154 posts) -

I can't believe after all this time people are still salty about this exclusivity thing. Man it is good to not be a whiny little kid and I can enjoy all the systems and games that come with them. Bayonetta 2 is shaping up to be a GOTY contender. I dunno if it could beat the hype train that is Destiny, but it will be phenomenal.

#79 Posted by Grey_Eyed_Elf (3904 posts) -

I really don't understand the hype around this game... I played the demo and couldn't care less if I am honest. Maybe is hype simply because there is literally no other game in that genre that's coming out soon.

Oh you mean like the WiiU pad? FUCK THAT.

Controller is fucking useless, and the pro controller is a superior pad anyway.

Exactly. I don't have a pro controller yet. I'm picking one up just for this game.

It looks cool, and the battery life lifts it to "immortal" state, apparently.

Feel sorry for all people that only own WiiU, is this really best game you get this year? I rather play Lords of the fallen and Farcry 4 than Bayonetta

#83 Posted by Im_DarkwingDuck (8 posts) -

I played the first one on 360 cause it was brand new at walmart for 5 bucks. A waste of 5 bucks.

@speak_low: Moron.

#85 Posted by big_mak523 (154 posts) -

@aroxx_ab: Actually, we've already gotten Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8. Later on this year we are getting Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta 1 and 2, the Toad game, and of course Super Smash Bros for Wii U. I'm not saying that is dominate, but the rest of 2014 and into 2015 is looking really good for Wii U. Smash Bros is a legitimate GOTY contender.

Wii owners never shit on Bayonetta. PS3 owners shit on it though cause they got the shitty version while 360 owners got the stable one. Wii owners generally liked Bayonetta due to its focus on gameplay. But you know, making stuff up is fun so carry on.

Nah, more like the smart respectable gamers that own a WiiU this gen because it has more than a handful of decent games to play are hyped for this. I would bet a lot of the people here getting this game for WiiU were gaming on 360's/PS3's last gen

But its 2 games..when you buy Bayonetta 2 it also comes with Bayonetta, you get 1 disc for Bayonetta 2 & 1 disc for Bayonetta. :P

#90 Posted by dobzilian (2490 posts) -

@FreedomFreeLife: Actually I brought a 360 to play Bayonetta after playing Madworld on the Wii. I have also brought Vanquish, W101 and intend on getting MGS Revengence today.

#92 Posted by DocSanchez (1634 posts) -

It's not my genre in the first place but damn this is getting over hyped.

#93 Posted by XboxStache (914 posts) -

Why are people complaining about the graphics? If this were Xbox One or PS4 screenshots, there'd be loads of GraWhoregasms. Looks good to me. And I'm happy I'm now a Wii U owner. The only next gen console bringing quality games.

#94 Posted by hehe101 (783 posts) -

looks good shame its a wii u exclusive lol

#95 Edited by Micropixel (923 posts) -

I don't understand all the fuss. The game's Floor Demo at Comic-Con looks absolutely AMAZING. Far better than the screens supplied by TC (no offense). Even GameSpot's Peter Brown agreed that the game's engine has come a really along way.

Of course, the usual band of haters are going to down-play everything Nintendo, regardless.

#96 Posted by bunchanumbers (1348 posts) -

Yup. Day 1 for me. People are going to hate because they'll get some multiplat games that are put to shame by PC. And in the end Wii U ends up with great games that play like a dream. People will scream about jaggies but won't see them fly by because it'll be cruising at 60 fps.

#97 Posted by gamefan67 (9902 posts) -

Well, those screens look really bad but I've seen the game in-motion enough to know that it looks fantastic and I cant wait to play it.

Eh! hopefully it does well in sales....if this turns out to be a good game, Nintendo base better start supporting it. Sega already made up their mind not to release adult titles for Wii U cause they believe it won't sell..hence Wii U only getting Sonic & more Sonic. :P

#100 Edited by dobzilian (2490 posts) -

Seems to me if this was a exclusive on Ps4 or X1 it would be hyped as the best thing ever but as no one owns multiple consoles on here then this Game sucks. I suppose Halol anniversary HD Remix and Last of Us HD remix first year edition will be such awesome games (well last of us looks good but halo was crap fro the get go) and Destiny is all worth the hype.... oh wait, 2 are rereleases and the third is destiny which to me seems as fhn as breathing in asbestos.

Keep angry people, keep angry.
