Not too sure of what to make of this list after I read it. Some I agree with, some I don't.

EDIT: @Whitefeather

I always did feel it was a gross understatement when people in favor of the new DmC game say that skeptics are only concerned with the hair color. I'm none too thrilled about Ninja Theory since I've despised every game they made so far.

It also doesn't help that they not only changed Dante's looks but his personality as well. He's gone from "not giving a shit" to "not giving a shit while acting like an obnoxious prick."

Godmars2901359d ago

I wouldn't use as strong a word as 'despised' as far as NT games go. Certainly been disappointed by them.

Really annoyed by the grunge/road warrior/post apocalypse dress and environmental style they have to shove everywhere. Only seeing it again in their idea of DmC - just no. No.

HammadTheBeast1359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

I definitely agree with you. Dante had too much class to just swear on a whim like he does now. They took away the style, and gave me this prick who Ifeel like kicking in the throat. In the old games, you rooted for Dante, in this one, I wouldnt mind if the asshole was butchered by demons.

And I also wouldnt mind as much if they hadn't sh*tted on the fans, old DMC games, old developers, and basically anyone not happy with this one.

So you're concerned about his hair AND his personality?

What's your point?

PopRocks3591359d ago

And the game generally sucking. I pretty much detest Ninja Theory and have really disliked everything they've made thus far. That and I'd rather spend my money on something I KNOW I'll like as oppose to something I MIGHT like.

Mike_Tha_Hero1359d ago

So you're comfortable writing off a game you have yet to play? Gotcha'

doogiebear1359d ago

Yeah IKR---who cares about his hair or his attitude? What is that guy trying to date him or something?

HammadTheBeast1358d ago

Gameplay is crap as well from what they've shown. It's dumbed down, much slower, 30 fps, and the controls are completely stupid.

Why the f*ck would I need two buttons for the same dodge?

They also took out auto aim which kind of sucks.

@Mike_Tha_Hero

Wow, you have a nice way of putting words into my mouth.

I'm skeptical about all aspects of this game. As for writing it off, I simply have no interest to play it and there are more and more games coming out that I actually do want to play and I'd rather spend my time and money on those games.

If I get a chance, I'll probably rent it or borrow it from a friend, but until then it's at the very bottom of my "To play" list, so to speak.

There is the experience u have when u play a game and the one u remember having after experiencing it completely. It is the latter that determines it's replay and it's status in ur list. ME3 is a great example. I loved every minute of it and the end didn't really ruin it until I digested it all. Then I read about it everywhere, then I analyzed it, and then thought about it's possibilities. Now, it's really hard to play anymore. While I was playing, I was literally enthralled, and now I am hoping to have another entry just to help justify playing this one again.

There was a lot wrong with ME3 in my opinion. Just felt like it was worse than ME2 overall to me. Also people keep saying that the problem fans have with DmC is the hair only, it's not it's the whole game and the changing of the character and gameplay. Only thing in common is the name.

da_2pacalypse1359d ago

I agree, ME3's ending was bad, but that's not all that was wrong with it. The entire game was pretty weak and shallow aside from a few cool side missions (i.e. the Geth), and this is why the ending seemed so bad, because you expected every mission you had done at that point to somehow come together... But they don't, as a matter of fact they all felt like random side missions. The story felt way too linear and the game too often gave the player a false sense of choice. And there was rarely any character progression at all.

So, yes, the ending was bad... and the fact that there was only 3 choices (which didn't mean anything) was a horrible way to end such a great trilogy. But unfortunately the game wasn't bad just because of the ending, there were numerous problems that led to the ending turning out to be such a bad experience. It felt like an unfinished product to me (kind of like DA2)... Guess we know who to blame for that :/

Kin23g1359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

I think you're exaggerating .. ME3 wasn't half as bad as DA2 (that one was a real mess!).

Mass Effect 3 was awesome, maybe not as good as ME2 but still a great game for sure. I enjoyed the story and the writing a lot, the gameplay too. The Illusive Man still had that aura around him. The first 39 hours was great, then came that stupid ending. That's why everyone's so pissed .. the game is great but the ending is pure shit. It made no sense whatsoever, and the Illusive Man turned into a complete 12 yrs old emo boy, in a few minutes that awesome aura was gone and he started questioning everything his believed in. And The star-child thing's the stupidest idea ever since the beginning of time. /end rant

NeoTribe1358d ago

Kin23, if me3 wasn't as good as me2 than it must really be plain jane. I'm a huge sci fi and rpg fan and I couldn't even bring myself to finishing me2. The only interesting part were the conversations id have with some of the ai. Gameplay was horrid, charachter progression was as weak as it gets for an rpg. I really don't consider it a rpg in the slightest. Missions were lame, collecting resources was lame, and the damn charachter animations were horrible. They looked and talked like like robotic manicans. Couldn't take the game very seriously.

chrispen91359d ago

It's good to see that someone agrees with me when it comes to New Super Mario Bros.

victoryscreeeeeech1359d ago

I still want mass effect 4 with Shepard

Godmars2901359d ago

And I'd like to see a sci-fi game which was a mix of ground and space combat as well as exploration and alien interaction. Not just something that became COD or gears re-skinned.

victoryscreeeeeech1359d ago

If me4 was like wat you wanted, would you get it?

Godmars2901359d ago (Edited 1359d ago )

Honestly, ME2 wasn't what I wanted, which was the main reason I didn't get ME3.

Not saying that I didn't like the game, but I've already said what I wanted and expected out of a sci-fi themed RPG and ME2 didn't deliver that.

ME4 is very likely on the way but, no matter how many millions it sells, will be nothing but a bargain bin - a collected edition at that - buy for me personally because its very unlikely that it'll be all that rewarding for me personally.

Though if EA follows SOP they'll make actual effort in the first game, then cut corners in the latter parts of a new trilogy.
