New Bayonetta 2 Mechanic Allows Bayonetta to Taunt then deal more Damage

bayonetta-2-11

Platinum Games slipped a new mechanic in Bayonetta 2 I had NO clue about. Bayonetta can now taught enemies. When you taunt, it will get foes to react more aggressively toward Bayonetta. If you successfully dodge and counter attack after a taunt, Bayonetta will dish out more damage. However, if you get hit while you are taunting, you will receive more damage. This was revealed in Nintendo’s San Diego Comic-Con stream of this game.

Nintendo can’t fix Everything Overnight, but They’ve Addressed Their Games Lacking Online play

One of the big issues that has been debated on a multitude of times with the Wii U, is Nintendo excluding online play. While there have been other issues such as the lack of online features, the biggest problem was Nintendo’s games outright lacking online multiplayer (remember the Super Mario 3D World fiasco). However, with the release of Mario Kart 8, and today’s confirmation of Hyrule Warriors having online play, four of Nintendo’s big first party titles in 2014 have online play, FREE of charge for Wii U owners.

Hyrule Warriors – a few more Details on Online play & Save Files

Hyrule Warriors

Hyrule Warriors will have online play for the Wii U. Online play will be a special mode outside the main campaign it seems, this also seems to be separate from the local co-op that will be based on the campaign mode. According to Nintendo Everything, the wording on the Japanese site makes it seem as if there is a ‘special mode prepared for those who intend to play over the internet.’ Lite Agent on NeoGAF has also chimed in saying Hyrule Warriors is confirmed to have online play. Here is his translation straight from the Japanese site: “Play Special battle in adventure mode”. Lite Agent often translates Japanese correctly, so you can trust his translation. There will only be one save file per a user, and DLC is confirmed, of course.

Hyrule Warriors – CONFIRMED to have Online Play, Miiverse Integration – MegaGamerMan Where you at?

hyrule_warriors_nintendo_wii_u_game-wide

The Japanese webpage for Hyrule Warriors CONFIRMS that Hyrule Warriors will have online play. However, it seems like it will a unique mode, possibly separate from local-campaign co-op. But online play is indeed confirmed for Hyrule Warriors. Auto posting to Miiverse has also been confirmed as well.

As for the title that says MegaGamerMan where you at…..well. On the latest LogiKast with The Zen Gamer, MegaGamerMan was insistent that Hyrule Warriors didn’t have online play, while I said we should wait for an official confirmation from Nintendo. Moral of the story, wait for official confirmation before rushing to conclusions. I found that out the hard way with the whole Lucina, Chrom fiasco earlier this month.

XType+ Review – Wii U

Xtype Plus

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m a huge fan of old school arcade style shoot-em ups. When I first heard of XType+ I was a little giddy, as there aren’t that many as I would like on the Wii U e-shop. The game certainly fills that niche, but is it satisfying and worth buying? To answer that, let’s break it down.
