2. Caterina Sforza (famous for boldly uphold the military defense of her states)

5. Ezio Auditore di Firenze (a nobleman-turned-assassin, the main character you play as)
219w ago - Today JoyStiq posted a video (below) from Tokyo Game Show 2009 showcasing Bayonetta for PlayStation 3.
To quote from their synopsis on the PS3 title: "Centered on the exploits of an improbably posh witch and her fashionable pair of gun boots, Bayonetta feels like the result of designer Hideki Kamiya answering every development question with, "Sure, why not?"
The game's hyper excess occasionally veers into the distasteful - Bayonetta's clothing seems to come and go as it pleases - but it mostly leads to situations that feel creative and surprising.
Even a boss fight avoids routine by constantly changing pace: a battle on a bridge eventually becomes airborne after the whole structure is flung across the stage, and the ordeal isn't over until after a brief chase and a final showdown atop a winding set of stairs."
