Must not be selling as well as the PS4 version, even though it's the more superior version.
2 games that are way overrated imo. Couldn't get excited about either of them back in the day. Especially Bayonetta.

runs for cover...
The marketing is a lie and they should be fined for false advertising as the games are not 4k but run at 1440p resolution.

Yeah, at least don't advertise it as such. Very scummy practice.

The one thing I do remember about these games on Xbox / PS3 was how quick that game dropped in price, think it got to £5 in less than a few months of release.

I suspect the same for this. Bayonetta is pretty great though, really enjoyed the Switch version. Preferred B1 to B2.

Agree about Bayonetta. Thought it was an inferior DMC clone back in the day and after finishing it again a few days ago I stand by that opinion. The penultimate level is awful and you're forced to fight every single boss again and don't even get me started on the nonsensical story. The QTEs are also very unforgiving and expect you to have the reflexes of a hawk with the tiny window you get to perform them.

It's also massively sexualised. If the game was crap it would be butchered from all sides for trying to appeal to teens. But it does that anyway. Having decent gameplay shouldn't exempt it from criticism. The Dead or Alive games are actually good fighting games but that doesn't stop them attracting criticism for the over-sexualisation. Bayonetta should be no different.

Anyway, have to disagree about Vanquish. It's Platinum's best game by a mile and playing it at 60fps is a dream. It's one of the best third-person shooters ever made and I still hold hope we'll get a sequel some day.

Platinum should go the Kickstarter route for it. They managed to reach funding for the Wonderful 101 remaster in hours and that's a niche game. Vanquish 2 would easily reach their funding goals.

We pretty much share the same opinion about Bayonetta. My benchmark for that type of game is Ninja Gaiden on original Xbox or DmC and its inferior to both. Gameplay aside the character was awful and the story nonsense.

Vanquish I could never discover the smooth gameplay people raved about. Gliding through robot legs, turning and whatever. That was possibly limits of the operator though! I would have another go at it. Its one of those games I 'want' to like.

It's almost the same price on ebay if anyone's interested.

Run for cover.

I enjoyed both games, but I would have to say vanquish takes the crown. Love a sequel. Waiting for the ps4 version to go sub 25
