Well, the holidays are over, the award weeks are over, and the new year has all but settled in here at Riddlethos.com. So, in many ways, this week represents a return to normalcy. And we could all use a little normalcy in our lives, now couldn’t we?
Now, I’m sure you’re all a bit confused as to what, exactly, this theme week will entail. If you think long enough I’m sure you could catch the drift, but just to save you all some time, I will explain: this week at Riddlethos, I’ll be weighing three different action franchises against eachother: God of War, Devil May Cry, and the recently-released Bayonetta.
What’s the point, you ask? Well, in the impressions I wrote for Bayonetta last week, I described it as a mixture of God of War and Devil May Cry. This comparison was subsequently stolen by several other sites as well, so I’m not the only one touting it.
That being the case, I decided I’d devote a week to playing all three franchises, evaluating them, weighing their strengths and weaknesses against eachother, and perhaps even announcing a winner. In order to do this, I’ll be spending varying amounts of time with:
Devil May Cry 3 (Played and finished the first two; the third remains in its shrink wrap even after all these years…)
God of War II (Courtesy of the God of War Collection on PS3)
So. That’s the plan. Excited yet? Because you should be. The faceoff will kick off tomorrow with a full review of Bayonetta. After that, it’s anyone’s ball game…
