IGN - DMC: In Defense of Emo Dante

IGN - When DMC first debuted, it hit the internet like the least popular kid showing up at prom. Misunderstood. Underappreciated. Single. In the comment thread of the debut trailer, IGN reader DaveJ41 wrote: "what the F*CK is this BULLSH*T." Bugman offered a similar sentiment: "character looks like a douche." Dante's new appearance -- coupled with a new development studio -- caused an uproar in the Devil May Cry community. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yeah I agree. He's more punk than emo. Emos wouldn't wear that much color or be so agressive...

I agree.
On Topic: Emo Dante = No Buy

Here we go with the defense articles

I wouldn't actually be surprized if Capcom tried to buy big game reviewers off. I mean it is Capcom were talking about
PooEgg  +   1040d ago
Well this is IGN, they are not video game reporters/reviewers, they are more like game company groupies. I never take anything they say seriously anymore.

Looks good.

I agree with you.

...Are you sure you looked at the right game when you said this?!?
SavageFlamingo  +   1039d ago
I've played this game. So I'm pretty sure.
Sgt_Slaughter  +   1039d ago
Really... so you've played a game that has yet to be released?!? Fascinating. Tell me, how does the game start out?
Pozzle  +   1040d ago
If you feel the need to defend something in a game, then that generally isn't a good sign.

Say, someone was insulting something you made or something you like. Wouldn't you defend it? There are actually people who are excited about this.
segamon  +   1040d ago
argue about it maybe but writing articles no, it then becomes too personel and consuming.

I was hanging out with original Dante the other night. We got all the girls at the bar.

I love how Ninja Gaiden 3 changed too much but DmC: Devil may Cry is a refreshing and "good" change for the franchise to IGN. Double Standard much?
MaideninBlack  +   1040d ago
So,IGN's defending this? DmC = crap confirmed.
TheKindRoost  +   1040d ago
Lol! they're paid( by investor and publishers) to write these kind of of BS, see ME and gamers"entitlement" BS they pulled for example.
MrDead  +   1040d ago
Well let’s just hope the game is good, it might help take our minds off that Capcom has destroyed one of gaming's most iconic characters.
Ravenor  +   1040d ago
Dante isn't iconic, you guys aren't overplaying how important old Dante looked at all.
rezzah  +   1040d ago
Your comment shows that you don't even know what makes a character iconic in the first place.

Your sentence confuses me...It conflicts with itself...

So he wasn't Iconic but we aren't overreacting...
