This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Bayonetta 3
« on: November 25, 2022, 09:32:44 AM »
Let's start out by addressing the elephant in the room. The fact this game is controversial.

It was always going to be controversial. The whole series has been that way in one way or the other since its inception. With each volume having new controversies as they were released. And that doesn't even touch on the gameplay elements. Bayonetta has always been a property where the developers thought outside of the box and delivered an experience suiting that description. Half the fun was waiting for whatever resulted from a new volume.

And that is where Bayonetta 3 doesn't disappoint. It's the same character, but also is a completely new experience. It builds upon what the previous games brought to the table. And more than delivers the show. It ultimately brings in a fun game.

This series has been a joy for me. It was the whole original reason I bought a Nintendo Switch. In fact, I bought the Bayonetta 2 package (That also came with a download code for the first Bayonetta game) a month before I got my Switch. I was that committed to it. And the joy the series has brought me made the price I paid come back to me in far more pure fun than a lot of other things I have bought over the last few years. So definitely price well paid.

I'm not going to do a step-by-step, element-by-element review of the whole game. That's something plenty of people on Youtube have done already. I'm just speaking from my own enjoyment of the series. Which really has never disappointed me. I feel I got my money's worth and more.
