What you're looking at is the fine backside of Bayonetta, the lead character in Platinum Games' upcoming action title, not coincidentally entitled, Bayonetta . Yes, there is a point to this.

Those of you who are into game design should definitely check out the Platinum Games website , where a new entry called, "Modeling Bayonetta" has been added by designer Kenichiro "Yoshi" Yoshimura. As you can see, it's a brief rundown of how Bayonetta went from his imagination to a wire-frame model, to the final product that exudes both beauty and danger. A great deal of effort went into this character, and Yoshimura explains a bit about the process; here's an example:

"Bayonetta’s face: She is really attractive, yet dangerous, so I wanted to get that across without over-doing it. She is beautiful, but she can’t be pandering. Those sorts of things are really hard to pull off, let me tell you. So I would draw some sketches as I worked and eventually arrived at a final design as I was modeling.

I really wanted to get Bayonetta’s backside perfect. I guess I am into that sort of thing…"

Yes, well, the majority of the male population will likely agree that you hit the mark, Yoshi. Bayonetta is undoubtedly gorgeous but of course, we're still going to need a kick-ass gameplay mechanic in order for the title to be successful. This ain't the movies; people aren't going to flock to the stores just because there's a hot chick in the production. And by the way, before the raving feminists freak out, let me remind you that unrealistic heroines came loooong after the unrealistic heroes. The ladies can whine all they want about how the Dead or Alive girls are completely ridiculous and it demeans women and blah blah blah.

I'll just point you towards the impossibly chiseled features of Duke Nukem and just about every other cliched male hero of the past 25 years of gaming. We don't wanna play as a middle-aged, paunchy, balding dude and we don't wanna play with a female who isn't attractive. Sorry, but them's the breaks. 😉

Exalting the female form is a very honorable task, perhaps even a calling befitting the most talented and devoted of men among us.

In short: T and A are AWEOSOME-O.

Nice. Personally, I prefer the more round, bubble shaped butt over the tear-drop, but he's done quite well here. 🙂

"we don't wanna play with a female who isn't attractive." True in so many different ways… 😉

Hey, when we're drunk playing with a female who isn't attractive becomes hindsight.

I cant wait till the day that they make a game that you play as a dike, all the reviews would just be like "well the gameplay was good but for some reason it just seemed like the game sucked"

Are you nuts? In this uber-liberal age, it'd be the exact opposite. "She's gay, so the game rules."

Throw in a lesbian love scene…SOLD!

That's assuming it's a feminine lesbian. Can't see myself wanting to play as one of the flannel and corn-row wearing butch broads.

But, I don't think a game with a gay male as the lead character could sell. If Kratos was gay, GoW3 would be doomed no matter how great the game was.

If Kratos was gay you'd have a special move that split people with your caulk, haha.

When I say dike I meant real dike, fat, buzz cut, and a severe lack of shaving.

Even in this crazy uber liberal age I don't think anyone would give good reviews to a game that had one of those as a protagonist

This games looks fantastic to the DMC and Ninja Gaiden crowd but not for me.

I'm just not into the manic button mashers. I would love to watch somebody play the game though. I know this one would just frustrate the hell out of me from the vids I've seen.

I like attractive game characters, both male and female.
And, it's never really bothered me they way most video game chicks are designed.
What does bother me?
Weak female characters, boob bouncing (you know what I mean) and gratuitous panty shots.
Oh, and I forgot the classic PRINCESS IN DISTRESS characters.
How about a game where you play as a bad-ass chick who has to save some wimpy, pathetic male? ; D

Anyway, I love Bayonetta's design. She has a real nice ass.

Then again, I can't help but pick up this Sarah Palin vibe from her.

Uhhlusska.

Nice Arse (ass) as long as the games good plus you wont see much of her backside if your running about kicking crap all over the place.

I remember all the tricks and cheats and codes that appeared all over to get Lara Croft to appear naked, *she is a character sprite in a game* then again it would appeal to some kid somewhere I would imagine. haha. 🙂
