In this issue Leon, Tony, Josh and Darren revisit two full-on action games from Japanese ‘super-group’ developer PlatinumGames. Bookending 2010, Bayonetta and Vanquish embraced their medium, but does such disregard for serious narrative hold up in the homes of the 2010’s as it did in the arcades of the 1980’s and 1990’s? We also speculate on what forthcoming Platinum projects Anarchy Reigns, and the much talked about Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance will offer in 2012.
Music used in this issue:
1: One of a Kind by Hiroshi Yamaguchi
2: Fly me to the Moon by Julie London
