"Platinum's popular multiplayer action-adventure game Bayonetta..."

Not a big deal, but just felt like pointing out that it's not multiplayer.

Looking forward to Anarchy Reigns. By most accounts the online isn't completely successful, but at $30 bucks it's hard to ignore. That and it's a small dose of Platinum to enjoy until Metal Gear Rising is released.

Anarchy Reigns. Get it. Get it for character design and the music ALONE, anything else is just a cherry on the pie.

It helps it's probably one of the few 3d fighting games that is trying something different this generation. even if it has several flaws.
