Famitsu on Bayonetta 2

I’ve really been waiting for the first Bayonetta 2 reviews and now it’s here. The japanese magazine Famitsu wrote it and although I got no clue what they wrote, the final verdict, consisting of 4 authors’ ratings is as follows: 

Bayonetta 2 (Wii U, Nintendo): 10 / 9 / 10 / 9 - (38/40)

38/40 usually is a Zelda-kind of a rating there, so I guess a blind day one purchase wouldn’t hurt here.

Armikrog WiiU to be released shortly after PC/MAC/Linux Version

During a little Q&A I had the chance to ask about Armikrog’s WiiU version, here’s what I got:

"It will be released shortly after the PC. Mac and Linux versions are released. Not simultaneously. But we promise it wont be too long after. :)"

PC/MAC/Linux versions of the game are currently scheduled to be released by the end of the year, so I’d expect the WiiU version be there around Jan/Feb 2015.

Armikrog is a, successfully Kickstarter-funded, point & click adventure game coming from the creators of the classic game The Neverhood which it actually is the spiritual successor to. Designed by the guy behind Earthworm Jim, it’s a huge Claymation project, letting players controll a fully stop-motion animated clay-character advancing through a surreal fantasyworld.

Fight capitalism as the Glorious Leader, KIM JONG UN feat. DENNIS RODMAN!

Coming this year to PC and Mobile platforms: Play as the Glorious Leader and shoot yourself through seven levels of the Contra of communism, the saviour of the North Korean race, riding on a flaming horse. We’ll stay tuned. Until then you may watch the vice/HBO-documentary of the Harlem Globetrotters visiting North Korea (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoeSlDeb3NY) which this game actually refers to.

Sunset Overdrive is one of the games that actually do convince me that there’s still hope for that XBonePS4-Tech generation of consoles as it’s FINALLY something I couldn’t imagine being able to play on a PS360.

I’m still wondering, how long it takes until we’ll really see destructible houses, streets and cities. In this game, there’s blowing a NUKE without doing anything to the buildings? Sure, technology isn’t there yet, but I personally could live with worse polycounts and textures if you’d actually be able to REALLY DO DAMAGE to all environments.
