Bought Bayonetta 2...
...and put it in the safe with the rest of my games, where it shall languish, untouched. Perhaps forever.
Stuff like this can happen, it seems. And exclusively with Nintendo platforms. I have a copy of Okamiden in my safe that I've never played, for example.
which was meh, are the only two Wii games I've ever played to completion.
I've tried the Mario Galaxy games (*1), I tried Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword (*2) and Donkey Kong Country Returns (*3), but Nintendo's first-party offerings have long since lost their grip on me. I kinda' feel like reviewers are just drunk on Nintendo spooge every time a new Mario game comes out and gets nines across the board.
1 - shitty controls.
2 - shitty controls and design.
3 - fuck off, waggle!
And yet, I bought Muramasa - soley out of love for its history, and developer Vanillaware. Similarly, I bought Bayonetta 2 because it's the sequel to one of the best brawlers ever made. The thought process works like this:
I don't, currently, want a Wii U.
I may never want a Wii U.
It's also possible that, one day, I may want a Wii U.
I will never want a Wii U, if I don't have a copy of Bayonetta 2 to play on it.
Ergo, I bought Bayonetta 2.
