  • Tokyo Game Show: Sega's action game Bayonetta (video)

    Sega’s third-person action game Bayonetta was playable today at the first day of the Tokyo Game Show, both on Xbox360 and PS3.

    “So, I’m supposed to put my Wiimote on a box and bang on that to play Let’s Tap?” Yeah, that’s pretty much what I kept asking myself while I unwrapped Sega’s Let’s Tap for the Wii.
