Today I want to celebrate some of the most bad ass video game characters who just also happen to be female. Weirdly there are some ladies out there who still think gaming is just for guys. Well there are many different ass kicking chicks for you to play as and in this list today I am going to run down my top five. I decided against using characters from fighting games so that is why there is no Cammy, Chun Li, Kitana, Sonya Blade or other awesome characters like that.
Game: Bayonetta (2010)
Format: Xbox 360, Playstation 3
Bayonetta is a kick ass witch who is trying to remember her past as she tries to stop the world from being destroyed. This is a great game that is full of over the top action as you battle both demons and angels, which is just really cool. Bayonetta is a fantastically well written character and she is just impossible not to like. The story is full of twists and turns and just when you think you have her figured out something else happens.
#4 Jill Valentine
Game: Resident Evil 3 (1999) Resident Evil: Revelation (2013)
Format: Playstation, Dreamcast, PC, Game Cube, Playstation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS
Jill Valentine is a Resident Evil original. She manages to be both sexy and deadly as well. She is a master lock picker and she also is not shy about using a gun to put down some creepy monsters. She was amazing in Resident Evil 3 when she went head to head with that big SOB Nemesis, but if you want some modern Jill Valentine action then you should check out the awesome Resident Evil: Revelations that sees Jill on the hunt for her lost partner Chris Redfield.
#3 Samus Aran
Game: Metroid Prime 3: Corruption (2007)
Format: Nintendo Wii
Samus is one of if not the original bad ass when it comes to female video game characters. Now granted the game Metroid Other M did pretty much all it could to destroy her reputation. But if you want to play as a hard as nails intergalactic bounty hunter then your best option is Metroid Prime 3. Samus is a chick who takes no prisoners as she explores her surroundings. She is a master with a gun as she is on the hunt for space pirates.
#2 Juliet Starling
Game: Lollipop Chainsaw (2012)
Format: Xbox 360, Playstation 3
It is impossible not to fall in love with Juliet Starling when you play the insane Lollipop Chainsaw. She is sexy, funny, kind and she also just so happens to be from a family of zombie hunters as well. Apart from that she is your typical American high school cheerleader. Juliet with the aid of her chainsaw and the severed head of her boyfriend are required to stop a evil dude from taking over the world. This game is not for the faint hearted and is full of gore and some vulgar humor as well, but despite the fact she is a zombie killer there is just something sweet about Juliet Starling.
#1 Lara Croft
Game: Tomb Raider (2013)
Format: Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PC
Tomb Raider was re-launched in 2013 and it is better than ever. Many people took objection to the original 90's design of Lara Croft and her exaggerated assets, but this new Lara Croft is one of the coolest character either male or female you will get to play as. You start off with her as a somewhat shy and reserved explorer, but by the end you have witnessed her becoming a total butt kicking machine and someone people can really look up to. This new Tomb Raider game has really done a great job of recreating a character who was already a video game icon.

Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, game director, shared that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will support Kinect. However, at the current time, it is too early to share specifics about how the Xbox One camera will be used. Find Tomaszkiewicz full comment below:
Aside from Kinect, Tomaszkiewicz confirmed that there will be SmartGlass support in the Xbox One version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Just as the Kinect functionality, it is too early to disclose how SmartGlass will be used with the game. Find Tomaszkiewicz full comment below regarding SmartGlass and The Witcher 3:
"We've got Kinect support but it's too early to speak about it. We have some plans [for Kinect] but it's too early to talk about it."
A new trailer with game footage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released on Dec. 7 during Spike TV’s VGX award show.
"Yes, we are planning some stuff for it, but again it's too early to really say much about it."
The title will be released in 2014 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC
New Details and Screens for Yakuza Ishin’s “Another Life Mode,” the Protagonist’s Home Away from Home
In Another Life, Ryoma has purchased a second home, which includes lovely amenities such as a kitchen, bathroom and a large field. He can earn extra money to buy new equipment, get extra items, train to strengthen his body and recover his stamina.
Of course the adorable Haruka will be living with Ryoma and she will help with cleaning and maintaining the house. Over time their relationship can grow and develop as parent and child. If trust between them is high enough, Haruka will even clean Ryoma’s ears (which is often done in Japan among very close family members) and send him off each day. A heart-warming event called “Calm Event” might occur as well.
It’s possible to grow a garden in the second home. Players must plan out the vegetables grown in the garden and what area they will occupy, since field space is limited. The item fertilizer will allow for an immediately harvest and the Scarecrow item will keep birds from damaging your crops. There will be more than 20 different vegetables to grow.
Fishing is another activity for busy Ryoma and he can partake in either sea or river fishing, each area netting him unique types of fish. There is a variety of fishing equipment to collect and use that will be helpful for different kinds of fish.
You’re probably wondering what the point of doing all this fishing and gardening is. Well, you can take your spoils and cook with them, making delicious meals for yourself. Using commands such as “cut,” “bake” and “pour” at the correct time will result in a completed food item. These food items having major strategic benefits in battle; you can heal Ryoma’s stamina, increase his strength and award him with special abilities–especially useful if food is eaten right before boss battles. There will be more than 20 types of cuisines and players can increase the kitchen’s facilities to allow for more kinds of food items to be made. Obtaining recipes in the city is also possible, which increases the menu’s diversity even more.
Harvested vegetables can also be peddled in town to make money and the more you sell them, the more your clientele will increase. A few rich clients will even give you rare equipment materials instead of the normal payment. Money earned can also be used to purchase your own equipment.
Last but not least, we have pets. Ryoma can tame stray cats and dogs and make them his pets, up to a maximum of three. Playing and feeding your pet increases their affection toward you. Pets can find rare items, such as weapon material; item quality increases the higher their affection is. Check out the screens posted below to get a good sense of the game’s Another Life Mode.

At the time though it was a justifiable thing to have said. The only experience Sony had with videogames was via their publishing label Sony Imagesoft, whose arguably biggest hit was Mickey Mania for Mega Drive and SNES.
The fact that the PlayStation only came about due to an aborted partners
hip with Nintendo to create a CD add-on for the SNES also hinted at some sour grapes on Sony’s behalf. It was almost as if Sony were planning to go at it alone simply as payback for Nintendo cutting their potential fortunes short.
Cheap and easy to develop for, the PlayStation did of course eventually go on to outsell both the Saturn and N64 while becoming a household name in the process.
Sony’s marketing campaigns played a large part in the system’s immense popularity – putting demo pods running WipEout in UK nightclubs was a genius move, not to mention one that helped videogames as a whole appeal to a far larger audience.
Those who shelled out £299 on launch day were treated to a stellar line-up that knocked the Saturn’s launch games for six. Ridge Racer may have only featured one track, but it looked far greater than Sega’s rushed out conversion of Daytona USA. It was, in short, a system seller.
WipEout was an altogether different kind of racer – far edgier, without a single pair of wheels in sight. It may have been soon bettered by WipEout 2097, which featured vastly improved handling, but the original was still a very important game for Sony that showed off what the system could do.
The soundtrack too turned heads, featuring licensed tracks from Chemical Brothers, Leftfield and Orbital. The now sadly defunct Psygnosis provided quite a few of the PlayStation’s line-up in fact, with two more titles – Destruction Derby and 3D Lemmings – arriving just a couple of weeks after the console itself.
Having revisited Destruction Derby recently, we were surprised that it hasn’t aged quite as badly as feared. It does seem a little odd now though that the vehicles were seemingly glued to the ground, unable to roll around or flip over. This is something the sequel rectified.
3D Lemmings didn’t gain quite the same amount of critical acclaim, failing to sell anywhere near as well as the 2D original. We’ll even go as far as saying that it was one of the first games to suggest that not every well-known franchise should make the jump from 2D to 3D. Sadly, publishers and developers alike chose to ignore this valuable lesson.
Going back to Namco for a second, in addition to Ridge Racer they also converted Air Combat and Cybersled from arcade to PlayStation. Futuristic tank shooter Cybersled gained a bit of a kicking and was soon superseded by Assault Rigs. Air Combat (née Ace Combat) fared better, gaining dozens of sequels over the years with three alone on PlayStation.
