So the hero is an annoying S&M librarian?
If this was anyone but Platinum Games, I'd ignore Bayonetta entirely.
This might be more interesting if Devil May Cry 4's interface hadn't been crafted explicitly to be fucking awful.
Pomp sans grandeur
^---- I saw more or less the visual equivalent of that.
Better quality trailer here (click watch in high quality):
I think it's very important for everyone to know that her four guns are named (there are two on her shoes), and they are Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, and together they are called the Scarborough Faire.
I am honestly not making that up.
OK, someone already made the Sarah Palin joke, and the "utterly fucking incomprehensible" joke, so let me run down my checklist here...
seriously, though - the combination of the music and the visuals and the dialog basically made for a sort of blurry noise soup. All I took away from this was "It's insanely Japanese and Sarah Palin Sex Kitten shoots people with her feet."
I guess I could do a POEBOT 5000 bit with the novelty tag "SFW Fetish Week" but eh. I'm just overwhelmed and confused.
I see stuff like this and die a little inside, because you have to realize how dispassionate it really is. Sex sex leather guns sex EXPLOSION sex guns shooting shooting bootguns shooting EXPLOSION $$$$$.
Though in this case we're talking maybe $$, or $$$ at MOST.
I love Devil May Cry. I love Clover. What could possibly go wrong?
... oh. This.
I'm still going to buy it, mind you. And play the shit out of it. But I'll hate myself for it, I assure you.
Needs the "trying too hard" tag.
I should add that honestly, I like the idea of gun heels. But they took it and ran with it -- off the field. In the wrong direction.

Games as art. +1 for pure density of Japanese cliché.

I've seen gun heels done before in a manga that took place in the Old West and was exactly as historically accurate as you'd expect.
This was still fun to watch.
