I wasn’t aware that strong, sexually empowered women are in fact a demeaning social trope.
If you had ever played the games, or even mildly researched them, you’d know that Bayonetta is both highly sexualized for the benefit of the viewer AS WELL as being sexually empowered for herself. If you want to hate the former, you have to hate the latter, and that’s rather misogynistic, don’t you think?

okay theres a difference between real people choosing to be sexualised for their own benefit and men designing female characters to be sexualised
no matter how you wanna dress it up as this Fictional Character Created By Real People as making her own choices. she still in fact was made by a person who choose to make her look like that
yes, it is a problem that the person criticizing games does not research or play the game but you have to remember who makes the games and who is deciding that the character is empower by those things [hint: its cis het abled white men]

the designer of Bayonetta is female, Mari Shimazaki. she said that the design was a self projection power fantasy to empower herself while feeling beautiful, what she “aspires to be like”. for her own sake.
do your damn research.

No one was supposed to see this but, in case you don’t know, YouTubers tend to need to sync up their audio with their video.

Common practice is with a count down, or saying you’re doing an action as you do it.

I found myself doing this with Valiant Hearts during the final recording session and felt I should share.
