You had me at Jill Valentine (UPDATE)

This is old news, but Resident Evil 5 Alternate was shown at the most recent Tokyo Game Show. The big hooks are that it will support the new motion wand and contains a new sub-chapter with Jill and Chris. The jury is out on the motion wand thingy, but I’m psyched for this extra story as well as playing as Jill in the main game instead of the special mission modes.

Since Capcom added costumes for the PC version, I’m betting there will be at least one more set for this update. I had an “incident” with my 360 save file so starting fresh on the PS3 is fine by me.

I checked out the PS3 Bayonetta demo via a Japanese account and the game just rocks. It’s going to be very hard to wait till January to play this. Kotaku posted some costumes in the game and they are…um…interesting? I’m not crazy about them, but I’ll take them since they are free (at least they better be)!

The closest thing to it is Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 which I also finally got around to checking out in demo form. Feels pretty much like the first game with minor tweaks. It’s on my watch list for sure. Just depends on when some free time opens up and perhaps any price drops happen.

According to FedEx tracking, my Tekken 6 box should be arriving sometime today. Very excited to check out the first wireless arcade stick. I have complete faith in Hori that it will be a quality stick. I chose the 360 version since the majority of fighting games in my library are on it (Virtua Fighter 5, Soul Calibur IV, etc). Sort of want a wireless stick for the PS3 too since my copy of SFIV is on that system.

That will have to wait a while till my wallet cools down. Maybe closer to the release of Super Street Fighter IV perhaps. I’m sure the flood of other wireless sticks and fighter pads will be in full force by then.

More Bayonetta costumes are surfacing. Original source here, which I put on my RSS after being alerted via Kotaku.

Little more classy. Sort of.

Do let us know how the Wireless Arcade stick turns out! I'm not a fan of Arcade sticks but being wireless makes it much more appealing... now if only those Street Fighter Fightpads were wireless... Also I cannot wait until Bayonetta comes out on the Xbox 360 here! Almost tempted to import the PS3 version but I don't want to hurt my first experience with the game...

Yeah I am super tempted to import PS3 Bayonetta, but Tekken is keeping me busy. Will definitely post about that in more detail soon.

The stick is GREAT. Not super heavy, just right. No lag as far as I can tell. The box in general is very nice. One of the nicest quality art books I've seen too. Very good paper stock and a decent amount of sketch art. I got mine at a discount from Amazon (back when the ECA coupons still worked). I think $149 is too steep, but anything around $130 or less I would recommend jumping at. That is if you dig the game. I'm still not 100% on how I feel about it, but so far really liking it.

I've been thinking about importing PS3 Bayonetta but I'll probably wait for the Jan. 5th release date here in the States. The kimono is classy. Sort of.

I am, however, probably going to import the artbook: Bayonetta - Witch of Vigrid. I just really love the art style this game has going on.

I have to say that some of this new cloths are a little bit dirty, definitely with a games partners dressed like this the males character in video games don't need take Generic Viagra, just look Bayonetta, only with this you understand my point.
