    The prodigal son has returned to the promised land.

    Er, good on Sega. Great game, glad more people get to enjoy it. I might double dip.

    Very nice, happy for the Master Race to get this one. Though if there is no new content I won’t double dip. Sweet game but no replay value.

    Hopefully the mouse+KB controls are as solid as the Bayonetta ones.

    Unlocked framerate, new graphics options, and an unlocked resolution.
    Damn. That’s a mighty fine port.

    Bayo 2? Some of the B-tier games like Transformers and Korra for dirt-cheap?
    New shit announced for PC at same time as consoles, or the “master” edition with all the cut DLC included?

    Hope they don’t screw up the port. Will have to check out how Bayonetta faired as I already own it twice, not need to buy a 3rd time (outside of a deep discount so I can unify more of my library).

    He’ll come back to articles that are talking about exclusives saying stuff like “this game will neeeeeeeeeever get a PC port.” :D

    Nintendo published Bayonetta 2. Hell would have to freeze over and we’d have to colonize every planet in the universe before Nintendo would let that be released on anything but a Nintendo system.

  27. InfectedAI
    May 10, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    I figured it would require a controller. It’s actually good with M+KB?

  28. InfectedAI
    May 10, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    Worth it for the performance upgrade imo.

    I know B&W was the artistic choice for madworld but it would be cool if it comes to pc and we see some color mods.

  31. Madbrainbox
    May 10, 2017 at 5:06 pm

    Yes.I personally like the way it handles.

  32. Zen
    May 10, 2017 at 5:30 pm

    I’m thinking it’s because they’re probably going to offer a similar deal for Vanquish owners who buy Bayonetta.

  33. Anonymoose
    May 10, 2017 at 5:31 pm

    Now we just need that damn sequel. With more encounters where you turn that limiter off like in the final boss fight.

    You can always tell when you’re wrong for calling someone a rat. They never put up with the troll’s malarkey and immediately make them regret their decision to attempt to hijack a thread.

    Not to sound too cynical, but here’s hoping the port is good.

    Platinum, though. You know I love you, baby.

    If it is like bayo on PC then it will be a great port

  44. GameZard
    May 11, 2017 at 4:16 pm

    Bayo is very cheap on steam and if you buy both they both are discounted. Bayo is one of the best optimized games on PC.

    Chocolate ISIScream was put into a psychatric hospital today.
    He reportedly started frothing at the mouth, then dropped to the floor, spinning around and defecating uncontrollably while screaming “REEEEEEEE”
