I know this is pointless but I couldn’t help it.
Moreso: Bayonetta was designed by a woman who openly claims the design to be a power fantasy for how she wishes to be.
Looking at this gamergate thing from an outside perspective, since I’m not a gamer, is interesting. I feel that a lot of the comments I’ve seen fail to take into to account how oppression works. In this case the above commenters fail to understand how hegemony works. Not knowing any thing about the game designer or the game in question I want to point out that, yes, women can be oppressive toward other women. That’s how the hegemony of patriarchy (or anything really) works. There are plenty of women in government who go along with attempts to ban abortion and regulate the female body. That doesn’t make said legislation not sexist and it doesn’t mean that patriarchy isn’t at work there! Really, that’s the beauty of hegemony!
Two interesting articles that I recommend people interested in this read:

"Loukanikos" internationally known as the "Riot Dog" passed away today in Athens at the age of 10. His health was adversely affected by police asphyxiating gas and from being kicked from police, forcing him to “retire” from active protest about two years ago.
“He was on the couch sleeping, when suddenly his heart stopped beating”.
What sad day. :’(
