    It actually feels like the reception of Bayo 3's story has been so negative it trumps everything else about the game even if it's genuinely good or even great.

        It goes too far off the deep end to set up Viola as the new protagonist of the series. Bayo 1 and 2's stories were fairly alright if a bit goofy because of all the timeloop shenanigans. Bayo 2's story retroactively makes Bayo 1 make more sense. Bayo 3 ramps everything up to 11 and now there's suddenly multiple universes within the Chaos realm but not multiple Loptrs or some reason. And the new bad guy has zero build up, Cereza and Luka are now fated to be together no matter what universe they inhabit when the first two games all they had was some flirty undertones. Lukaon is a bit weird too, is that implying there's a faeri version of Cereza somewhere? Not to mention Jeanne is actually permanently dead now for no reason when they could have easily kept her alive to be Viola's mentor since Cereza is now trapped in Inferno with Luka. Viola doesn't do much in the story to "earn" the Bayonetta title either, she's still incredibly clumsy and unskilled. Which is why it would have been far better to keep Jeanne in the picture as her mentor.

        It just didn't even feel like a Bayonetta story if that makes any sense.

          The more I think about Jeanne being dead the dumber the story seems. It's clear to anyone that Viola is absolutely nowhere near even Bayo 1's level of power. She is an Umbran witch in training, but now there are no more Umbran witches to train her. Where is Viola going to learn all of her magical arts if all Umbran witches are dead? There are no more Umbran Witches or Lumen Sages, who is going to train her? How will she ever dream of reaching the heights of Bayonetta or Jeanne in terms of power.

            It's a sequel trilogy move, if they want viola be a witch they can call a mcguffin to train book/person/rodin if they don't, fuck it.

            In the final battle viola 'kills' something near the powers of bayo 1 bosses, then there is REDACTED that is basically an I win button.

            You retard she's literally 1/4th witch like Nero from DMC is 1/4th devil or whatever.
            So that means she's 4 times as powerful as a full fledged Umbran Witch, get with the fucking program.

          Bayonetta 4 could quite possibly end up being the Megaman X7 of the series. Start the game as Viola but only after you collect so many halos you can "free" Bayo from inferno to join the fight. It will sell millions.

            This could've only worked if Bayonetta 4 had a familiar face like Jeanne. But they killed her too.

            Jeanne is a highschool teacher, and Viola is clearly a student (as seen in the end of the game). Bayonetta's story could only end in her death, or back where she started in a sunny day.

            Viola is a goofball, and she needs the strict Jeanne to be her straight man in a comedy duo. I love Viola but she can't carry the franchise alone.

              According to the entries in the character page. All the werewolf shit comes from Lukaon. All the Luka's have a bit of it and as Singularity started knocking off universes it got more concentrated. Resulting in Luka getting it. Dark Adam is just the spite from the dead luka of Alphaverse.

                He's not the Luka from Viola's home universe, he another variant of Luka. The reason why Luka's a fairy werewolf and Viola has a fairy version of devil trigger, is some bullshit about the breaking down of realities and something something resonance causing the Fairy King Luka's power to affect the other Luka and Viola.

          It was a fun ride literally until the end, the moment you do the "last hit" it all goes downhill

          its like you are getting mocked for liking Bayonetta as a character, and then you must just accept that now Violet is the new generation Bayonetta, fuck that

                She was dragged to hell because she died, that's what happens when witches die. She wasn't dragged to hell for breaking the contract that forces her to feed angels to Inferno.

                Because of the contract. It's literally witch lore from real life, they give a demon their soul in exchange for magical powers, that's the origin of the folklore and mythology of witches, being dragged to hell when they die is an explicit part of that contract.

                The Witches contract seems really fucking retarded given Lumen Sages didn't have that drawback

                I used to think the drawback for sages was being forced to do Jubileus' bidding (mirroring angels and Catholicism) and that's why Balder was such a dick, but 2 changed all that too.

                sets up a grim inevitability for the heroes of the story though, like Bayonetta's mom died, does that mean she was tossed around and chewed up like a demon dog toy?

                Lumen sages and Umbran witches are literally matched in power. it's the whole reason each clan holds their own eye.

                The only reason Inferno/Demons seem more powerful is because you play as as a main character who is an Umbran witch and sides with Inferno. Even then, Bayonetta is HALF UW and LS.

                With the series' penchant for time travel bullshit I always imagined Bayo/Jeanne/Rosa would one day become Butterfly/Styx/Khepri. If stray cats can become powerful demons I gotta imagine Umbran Witches are prime material for demonhood, so they probably get kicked around for a few hundred years but come into their own eventually.

                Previously her contract was with Butterfly and the other demons were part of that contract (meaning either they worked for Butterfly or together with her) but with the actual demon summoning and masquerade stuff they treat it now like each demon has its own contract which is a bit weird but fuck it I guess.

                She's still quite clearly bound by the contracts, they're just individual instead of compartmentalised under Butterfly. They even make a point of it when they introduce Demon Slave, Gomorrah refuses to eat the homunculus because it's not angelic so Bayo has to force him into it.

So it's a fucking rights shitshow that works well so long as sega/platinum/Nintendo get along but if that ever falls apart the series dies.

            I like Viola for what she is, but not enough to buy a guy where she's the main protagonist unless they decide to time skip a few decades into the future where she's grown out of her punk rock phase, has matured considerably, and puts some meat on her bones.
            The entire appeal of Bayonetta is that she's a mature, classy lady that owns her own sexuality and has just enough campy cheekiness without going too overboard.

        I'm not sure what that's even supposed to prove, the train summon is incredibly niche and basically unusable unless you get a bunch of very weak enemies spread out over a wide open area, like that exact situation. The clock tower summon is similarly almost unusable outside of very specific situations where it's busted.
        A much better argument is the one that when you get enough magic + summons fight automatically + summons do more damage accessories you can essentially run the game on auto and get pure platinums on a shockingly high number of areas even on infinite climax just holding down summon and mashing dodge. Even then that's not as busted as it could be because there's a number of enemies and areas specifically designed to counter it.

            Clock tower's fun as fuck but next to impossible to use correctly, although instant free witch time is always fun. It's also fun to watch enemies try to attack it and bounce off. It also has the 'summon mech' function which is as stupidly busted as it was in 2 and stole me so many pure platinums because you can't take damage while using it.

            Does naive angel mode have any funnies that make it worth seeing on a subsequent playthrough?

                >Is there a reason killing Bayonetta triggers dimensional collapse?
                See above, but also I guess it's implied that whoever is the "Bayonetta" of a world/universe is the one that's holding it together. In the Egypt version, Jeanne is the Bayonetta in the sense that she's the stronger one and the one that the Homunculi are actively trying to kill.

                0 Mention of that in this game because, and I hate that I forgot where I read it, but Chaos(Purgatorio?) and Paradiso are both "sealed" so I have no clue how that didn't already throw the world out of balance.

                Really? That's such a random lost bit of lore that they could have used to explain why Bayonetta knew how to use Demon Slave since anytime she kind of did anything outside of the norm of Umbra Witch stuff it would activate and they could hand wave it in a more believable way, like in b2 when she summoned Malphas' wings only from her back.

                I think Singularity is the one doing the destroying. Alpha verse bayo died without dropping her universe. It seems that absorbing Eves is what gives Singularity a lot of his power. His entry in the character thing explains that splitting into a multiverse actually weakened the world of chaos and bring it all back into one will fix that. Other odd thing is it doesn't seem like he gives a fuck about Arch Adams. Hell the other Lukas besides Lukaon and Dark Adam are never shown.

    That's Bayonetta's entire existence. She's gone from console warriors warring over 1 (with it starting as xbox exclusive, then coming to PS3 as well, then the PS3 port being outsourced dogshit, then the PCfags getting salty; oh and have I mentioned that this game is literally rape?) then 2 came with all the BS switching an IP brings (NOOO KAMIYA HAS BETRAYED US XBOX BROS) then she was put into Smash and made so OP you could not fucking utter Bayonetta's name without the mongol hordes descending (PLS SAKURAI NERF BAYO PLS NOT FIT FOR TOURNAMENT PLAY) and now it's trannies and shipfags.

            it's literally captured on a switch, it doesn't need to be official. The game objectively switches to 30 FPS during cutscenes and more busy scripted gameplay segments, but tries to hit 60 FPS during regular combat (but on average only achieves 50 FPS). These are demonstrable and measurable truths.

        I"m not so sure about that, honestly I think its probably more of a even match than anything at this point. Dante was basically running at the speed of atmospheric reentry in that one scene in dmc3, sin dt has him hucking black holes essentially. Its a hard thing to gauge and I guess it would come down to what happens when/how click does dante kill her demon slaves

          That's just a problem with action games in general. For comparison Dante and Vergil don't really do anything that tells you their power level other than they hit shit really hard, specifically each other.

            Anonymous

            I would say that the heart ripping out should is a outlier since that's specifically a magic spell happening so the "mechanics" of that may be different. That power level shit is also the nature of these games, same thing happens to dante in 5e with urizen at the start, the man gets stabbed through the chest constantly but urizen punches him so hard his sword shatters but it doesnt LOOK that much tougher. That said I think dante does still probably edge her out in toughness

            If I'm not forgetting anything Dante and Vergil are actually fairly consistent (from 3 onwards at least, he was a lot less powerful in 1, and 2 doesn't exist), in that they're both basically indestructible except to each other. I don't think either of them takes any kind of damage outside of their infighting (at least that Dante doesn't immediately shrug off). That's why it's such a big deal when Nero actually dropkicks Dante in the face (now I think about it there is Arkham too, but that's after Dante and Vergil slice each other up first, so it still stands).

        at the start of dmc5 and bayo 3 I think Viola has the edge over him, I think chesire would be too hard for him to immediately adapt to, granted he's also missing dt at that point. End game I think Viola may still have the upperhand but devil bringer, dt, and breakers does close the gap. If he got a sin dt though its over for Viola.

            you both have a point but I was more thinking about their like, physical powers at the start and end of each game. But yeah nero is the better fighter I think. Ironically I think dmc4 end game nero would pimpslap viola but the start of 5e lack of dt and bringer would heavily nerf him.

            Yeah Dante is very rarely shown to be meaningfully injured by anything other than a version of his brother. That being said I dont think nero really ever hurt him at all in 4, more caught him off guard and bemused him. Basically like how lady shot him in the face, sure it might have hurt but it didnt actually do anything to him

            I do really like how Viola inherited Luka's clumsiness and wasn't just another cool girl but actually fell over and ate shit now and then, but they really overdid it in the actual fights, I almost couldn't believe that she beats Dark Eve at the end after her constant jobbing they went way too far with it. In the final fight where she rushes Singularity I actually (completely unintentionally) said out loud, "Do something useful for once in your fucking life," like I was some drunk dad yelling at the ball game.

              I think this partially because the way her character acts and looks means you just cant do the same kinda sexy jokes/dance stuff bayo herself does. I doubt they would want to really just cut all that from the series.

    That's not true. It's not that no one cares. It's just that the loudest whinnying assholes all are screaming about what they care.
    Personally, I'm just waiting to beat the game to talk about it some more.

    Speaking of the game.
    So, what is the deal with WT? It doesn't fuckin' last. Why is it that sometimes it just stops, almost immediately, mostly with Viola, and others it goes in for hella long time? What am I missing here?

      Tighter timing on your dodge/parry means longer witch time, though I don't know if it's just binary between short/long or if it's more granular than that.

      variable WT.
      The closer the gape is, the longer the WT is.

          It's weird because they call Viola's mom (the Bayo dressed as Bayo 1 who dies in the prologue) Bayo 0 in the character files, I don't know why they didn't give her that costume instead.

            well, it's a secret costume.
            Also, Viola's mom is Bayonetta β0 if I remember correctly.
            There seems to be a distinction between the main bayonetta (the one we played) and the multiverse bayonetta with the β symbol.
            For example, Chinese Bayonetta is Super Mirror β2 while Bayo 2 is Super Mirror 2.
            if anything, this implies a playable prequel of the bayonetta series rather then it's being Viola's mom.

              You right, good catch. They still should have given her a different costume though (rather than just altered B1), there were a few in the background when all the Bayo ghosts showed up that were wearing different shit they could have just put on her. Speaking of costumes can I get Egypt Jeanne? Does Jeanne even get any alt costumes this time?

      It's an okay concept with bad execution. bayo feels very inconsistent narratively, jeanne gets shit on, luka is now some weird fairy magic descendant, the whole "arch adam and eve" shit. The fact that Bayonetta is now seemingly a title rather than an alias for Cereza. And a title that Viola doesn't really earn. She spends most of the game being saved by everyone and shows zero growth. By the end of the game she's still the same endearing clutz with no coordination that we was at the start.

      Jeanne is the only one that actually seems to be dead now. With Singularity weakening the universes began to be restored, all the other Bayonetta's went back to their own worlds and even Enzo's family was revived. It's still kinda screwy. But Arch Adam Origin and Arch Eve Origin are the ones trapped in Inferno. Cereza isn't actually dead because Madama Butterly likes her too much to actually take her soul and Luka's new Fairy fagbag powers somehow restored Cereza's body to her soul.

              Yes. This time it's not gonna be an inferior version lacking cool references.

              It'll take them basically no time internally to just swap the Lappy model for something else they own and the result is opening up a whole new market of sales. For the effort of basically just adding a couple models to the game and bugtesting cutscenes and gameplay moments that include them. 2 weeks work at MOST for maybe 3 dudes for probably millions in sales?

              I mean maybe Nintendo will be tightfisted cunts but the way they handled TW101 Remaster to ME shows they're more flexible.

              Then they should have made a Viola game instead of killing their biggest series to shoehorn Viola in, a character that comes out of fucking nowhere and were expected to love with zero build up or question

              They didn't kill anything.

                No, because this one will be open to a much larger appeal than previously. Bayo on PC sold poorly because the players who would want such a thing largely already played it on PS3 or 360 or Wii U or would rather play on PS4/XB1.
                >Have you actually played Wonderful 101?
                So you're aware Nintendo owns TW101 the same way they own Astral Chain? It's unclear how it stands now after the KS and remaster but Inaba said Nintendo was mega cool to let them do what they did. It's beleived either Nintendo did a private sale of the IP and nobody knows what they paid or that they were giga-bros and just let Plat do whatever even though they don't own it.

                >And collision for the statues doesn't need to change,

                No they wouldn't. You can just use the old hitboxes and collision meshes. It's not a fucking bossfight, it's a statue you slap.

                From the very beginning ownership of W101 was split between Nintendo and Platinum, that USED to be the case with Astral Chain but Platinum sold/gave whatever the rights to Nintendo in their entirety.

                And this is the part where you cherrypick the handful of example of pc versions selling more without realising that it doesn't help your argument.

      it's a decent game, pretty much Bayonetta 2 but even more spectacle. It's more dumbed down mechanically too but considering 99% of players will never replay the game it doesn't matter.

    I don't like the story because nothing of note actually happens besides getting the macguffins until the last hour and then nothing makes sense.
    At least in Bayo 1/2 there's some plot threads and conversations going on from time to time with shifting objectives, progressions, actual character interaction besides shooting an enemy behind someone and teasing Viola, and serviceable twists but 3's "twist" retroactively made the entire story worse and it continues going downhill for that last hour into the fucking ground.

    So I was thinking of buying a switch and animal crossing NH as a present for my sister. But since bayo 3 came out, I was thinking of buying it too so that I have something to play on the switch while she's in school.

    I have no doubt the gameplay is great, but my biggest fear is performance. Can the switch actually handle the game? If I play with all settings on lowest, will I avoid lag and framerate drops? Is there any chance of the game ever getting a pc port?

      bayo 3 maintains solid framerates during the actual gameplay. it's as close to 60 as the switch can handle. there are noticeable frame drops in some cutscenes (notably the opening one). the game just ain't the pretties thing you'll ever play though

    why is everyone so mad when the multiverse was restored with the defeat of singularity. only one bayonetta out of the multiverse is "dead". bayo 1 and bayo 2 bayonetta went back to their own timelines.

              Who says they were even in New York at the time? Who says Rodin didn't save them like he saved Enzo? There's too many assumptions here. That being said since it's an infinite multiverse where any universe can exist they want (including ones with just minor variations on others) it pretty much doesn't matter either way.

          The weird part is the parallel between Viola's mom and Bayo 3 fight with Singularity. Are the writers saying "Here's your new mom"?

Its just kind of clear with all the messaging of "cereza's story is over"/" Conflict of the sons is ended" that Nero and Viola are meant to take more of the center stage.

                I dont think they can actually make a bayo or dmc game without them, viola and nero play way to different from the core gameplay of bayo and dante which people are accustomed to. And viola also just doesnt do the same sort of sex humor stuff bayo does.

          You'd have a point if
          two characters at once
          You actually controlled characters simultaneously like in AC but the DD allows you to control the demon at the cost of not being able to control Bayo. You can't control both.
          >>city segments feel like modified setpieces from the Ark
          Well yeah, it's Japan and the Ark is based on Japan. You're obviously going to get similarities if they're inspired by the same places.
          is chilling in an area that closely resembles Harmony Square
          Again, just lappy.
          juggling multiple transformations/weapon sets and summons

      I'd say no, there are reasons to back to bayo2 as well as bayo1 but this is by fair the largest depature with the beset weapons. Sorry shibuya fags you can play riot girl. The thing that reall seals it for me is how, yes you can abuse the mechanics to hell, you can also set up just some stylish combos. For example moon parry then call out wartrain have him do a loop dee loop to launch massive enemies then launch forwards with dead end popping it up a bit higher with hook wheelie then hook spiral then calling alraune with conosort's favor to do your full wicked weave combo, keeping it juggled by switching quicky to ribbit libido to spin your fins then calling malphas to ribut so you can do a full song combo to buff yourself

      look I could keep going point is that while this might seem like button mashing nonsense at first there are little details in using slaves in conjuction with your moveset to do whatever cool combo that comes to mind when you are messing around in practice mode.

    I'm a little confused on the prerequisites in stunning enemies. I've been trying to get the Bewitchment in the prologue's second verse where you use Gomorrah's bite to grab the big homunculi fella and I am assuming you have to stun him first to successfully grab it. And I am assuming that Demon Slave is the go-to way to break the HP bar to stun the foe, but I'm still a little lost on how to consistently and consciously fish for stuns rather than doing it accidentally.

      You don't, you just have to do it in witch time. Dodge -> summon -> r
      >but I'm still a little lost on how to consistently and consciously fish for stuns rather than doing it accidentally.
      For most enemies it triggers when you hit a specific weakness, which is usually using a specific attack at a specific time. There's probably a list somewhere

            It's common but that doesn't excuse this, especially when they try to make the ending feel like this heartfelt end to the core series and the fucking character. No Bayonetta game has a good story, but 3's is appalling. DMC5 had a dogshit story too, but this is far worse. It's not like it's somehow impossible for these games to have good stories, DMC3 had a very well done, simple story.
