As for Bayonetta being "cooler"... I cannot believe you said that. I played the demo for it, and was incredibly annoyed at how lame that game is. The main female character is flat out annoying, her movements and mannerisms seriously pissed me off. The game could have been redeeming had them made a decent lead character, not some freaked up looking goth chik. Just my opinion.
I am probably only grabbing GOW 3, and possibly Yakuza at a later date. Great month for gaming though
I may be a little biased, but have you checked on Gametrailers special on GOW3? It's insanity.
