If anyone would know that, it’s Platinum Games. Whether it’s Bayonetta or even Anarchy Reigns, the studio has churned out a string of original titles over the past decade. That isn’t easy.
Add cel=shaded screenshots to the Australian rating, achievements and cover art for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan. The still unannounced game has leaked so much I’m beginning to suspect Activision is trying out a new viral marketing technique.
Introduced at this year’s E3, Square Enix’s new NieR game, developed by Platinum Games, now has an official name and new information on one of its main characters.
To quote a tiny yellow robot during one of Transformers: Devastation’s many brilliant moments, “I did not see that coming.”
I was a little worried about not being able to get my hands on Transformers: Devastation until launch day. After playing for five minutes, everything is just prime.
If only 1986 Luke could have seen this trailer with his 1986 eyes.
A new trailer for Platinum’s upcoming Transformers: Devastation game will give gamers of a certain age flashbacks to their childhood. It’s still hard to tell if this game is much more than an arena brawler, though there do seem to at least be some transformation-based moves. For PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PS4.
I’ll take whatever I can get from Platinum Games, you know? But I didn’t expect this.
Leaked this weekend via website and retail listing, Platinum Games’ Transformers: Devastation is officially a real thing, and it looks just prime.
It's pretty well-documented that at least one lead developer at Platinum is deeply in love with old-school games. So it's not all that surprising that they made an retro-styled shooter starring the studio's biggest action star. Also not surprising: it's really freakin' tough.
One of the most impressive things I've seen yet during Awesome Games Done Quick 2015, the speedrunning marathon for charity, is disabled gamer "halfcoordinated" demolishing Platinum Games' Vanquish with only one hand.
In many action games, offense and defense tend to feel like two separate mechanics that sometimes talk to each other. But, when you're playing the two Bayonetta titles the way they're supposed to be played, evasion and attack are parts of the same integrated whole. And, damn, does it look beautiful.
There are a lot of boss battles in Bayonetta 2. They're all sort of overblown, in a good way. Need proof? Here they all are, documented in two hours of video. Spoilers, obviously.
"What if you could feel good all the time?" That's the question that Bayonetta 2 seems to ask. It answers that query, too. With an avalanche of mind-bending spectacle that will very often leave you dizzy and, by the end of it, a little numb.
The Avatar: The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra universe is tailor-made for a good video game. It boggles my mind that the much-loved series still hasn't gotten one.
Dressing Bayonetta up as a sexy vixen might do it for some, but hardcore Star Fox fans need a little more love. In a recently-revealed Bayonetta 2 Easter egg delivers all the Star Fox love. Don't want it spoiled? Stop reading now.
After the famously fudged-up PlayStation 3 port of Platinum Games sexy action game, fans were rightly cautious when Nintendo announced the original Bayonetta would come bundled with its Wii U exclusive sequel. Digital Foundry puts those worries to rest.
Oh dear. Bayonetta 2 is out in Japan, and it looks like a terrific game. The early buzz on it is super positive. Shame that not many people are buying it. Blame the Wii U for that?
