So I’ve been playing Bayonetta for a few days now, as I mentioned in my review the game isn’t as easy as I thought it would be. One of the main reason why it is giving me such a hard time is how much damage the enemies can inflict apon you if you miss calculated a dodge. I had, in a few occasions, half my life taken from an enemy’s combo attacks. That is why healing is such an important factor, at least to me, in this game. But you either have to purchase them from Rodin in Gates of Hell or you have to concoct your own using green compounds. The problem with purchasing them from Rodin is you can only have 3 green lollipop and 1 mega green lollipop. If you have already reached the limit, you won’t be able to buy anymore but to concoct your own. Normally they won’t come as often as I wish but I have found a way to get Halos (money), Butterflies (that will replenish your magic) and the three compounds. I am not too concerned about the Halos and Butterflies since they come in quite often. This “exploit”, “cheat” or “hack” does not really help gain a lot of Halos anyway.
So what is it? Its probably been mentioned already somewhere but I thought I would mention it again. Basically the benches, flower pots or any breakable objects respawn everytime you go from one place and back. For example, going in and out of Gates of Hell will cause a respawn of all the breakable objects when you re-enter the area. If you keep going in and out, you will be able to collect TONS of compounds. I have tested this in and out for at least 5 times and the objects still respawn WITH Halos, Butterflies and the compounds randomly.
I’m sorry to say I do need this to stock up my healing, attack / defense increasing lollipops.
