DmC's new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante

"Ninja Theory's redesign of Dante in DmC: Devil May Cry is easily one of the most controversial overhauls in gaming history.

LOL This isn't going to sit well with anyone still bitching about this reboot!
I'm looking forward to playing it to see this for myself!

:-) Opinions of anyone aside.

Did you actually read it?
Though after having done so, you still wont know where this article is going.
NewMonday  +   1214d ago
the problem now is actually the gameplay, from what we have seen it is not very smooth
N4GDgAPc  +   1214d ago
We? You ment I. You must of been watching the first gameplay footage ever revealed because it looks smooth to me.
Sevir  +   1214d ago
Please dont use we as that would loop me in the same category as those who are only out to bash
The game because NT is doing it! Ive seen itand it looks smooth, perhaps its not 60pfs like we've all come to expect from DMC games, but its a locked in 30fps there have been no dips in frame rate, even with all the rearrangement of platforms and real time environment changes happening along with all the physics there is no real way to discern that without playing it yourself. which i intend to do upon release!

The gameplay video has the guy just mashing X and fake Dante was going full easy automatic on the enemies. Check out the control layout and it's screaming casual gameplay. By the way this is on hard mode and you can see how little damage an enemies attack does to the player.

They turned DmC fast challenging gameplay to GOW's tanky mash buttons gameplay. Also, it auto switches the weapons for you. Also, check out how easy it is to get S rank WHILE getting hit.

Youtube frame-rate is capped at 30 frames and not to mention the heavy compression even on 1080p. -_-

If the game dips below 20 frames you will not be able to notice it because youtube will make it look like 30.

You need to download direct-feed videos and not many sites provide that kind of service. From the ones I know: Digital Foundry and but DMC reboot gameplay does seem laggy. The game will be just another button masher with a bunch of canned combos. =/

it's usual Jim Sterling trolling and trying to be funny. Of course he's funny pretty much only for those that don't have a working brain, pretty much like him.
Bigpappy  +   1215d ago
I am always with the developer. It is their baby. If I don't like their end product, I will just skip it. But they should make changes when every they think they need to. It has to come from inside or they should leave it and move on to something else.

"If I don't like their end products, I'll just skip it"

How can you know of you like it if you don't play it?
Whitefox789  +   1214d ago
However the developer is Ninja Theory; not Capcom.

I'm just saying...

Because everyone can tell how hard a game is just by watching videos and never playing it!!
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   1214d ago
I didn't realize that somehow gameplay suddenly magically changes from the videos you were watching to the game you're playing.

Amazing how that must work.
N4GDgAPc  +   1214d ago
And you can magically tell that there playing Dante must Die mode by watching a video.
Enigma_2099  +   1214d ago
So that means we can disregard yours, right? And as for the article...

"Lengthy arguments have been made, explicitly detailing why the new Dante is such a bad character, and yet others vehemently claim Capcom will never get their money again. Opinions are heated."

... and you're not helping.

timeon11111111111  +   1215d ago
Article written by Jim Sterling...

A fat ass who´s likes DmC, and who compares DMC fans with nazis.

He says that not a single good videogame was made by a game studio from Japan, and complains that anime artstyle of Japan is ugly.

Then tell me MR fat ass - who created DMC gameplay (concepts and ideas)? What studio created DMC 1, DMC 2, 3 and 4 - that DmC is based off (ROUGHLY 80% of gameplay in DmC is from the DMC serie).

This is an article from a fat ass similar to Bob Bargas character in DmC (the propaganda guy - "just doing god´s work").
This fat ass likes BRITISH Ninja theory´s DmC reboot, and it´s version of Dante. This fat british.

He also says that you shouldn´t trust DMC in Capcom´s hands because they will ruin the serie like they did with Resident Evil 6. But Mr Fat ass - check your facts: DmC gameplay has been invented by Hideki Kamiya+ Capcom, and that same gameplay has been PRODUCED in Unreal Enginge by Ninja theory with LOADS of help from Capcom developers.

And how LEGIT it is to bring up a cutscene from a game FOCUSED on gameplay made in 2001 (DMC 1) to compare to a game made in 2013 (who is recycling 80% of gameplay ideas from DMC serie = 10 years of gameplay experience).

Enuff said.

P.S If he doesn´t like anime artstyle then he can go suck on a horse´s dick like the way he´s sucking on Ninja theory´s dick.

I think this article was just sarcasm written all over it. Don't take it too seriously...

I found one misconception in the article for his supposed persona where he said not a single good video game was made in Japan; he stated this, "This is why I can barely get five minutes into Ico, but have spent a cumulative thirteen years playing Ridge Racer."

I wonder why that persona can play Ridge Racer for thirteen years if it was made by, Namco which is *dun dun dun!* a Japanese game company.
jrbeerman11  +   1214d ago

hkgamer  +   1214d ago
article was just a joke, full of sarcastic comments. You could tell he was being sarcastic all the way from some comments he makes throughout the article, for example about silent hill being anime like.

I don't understand why you have so many agrees, did anyone actually read this article or are they basing it off the title and little summary?

I thought this article was pretty decent, kinda shows how some internet people come up with weird ways to justify their point. I have read some people on the internet saying that if you ignore the negative reviews of RE6 then it will have a pretty good score.
SilentNegotiator  +   1214d ago
I certainly hope you're simply returning the sarcasm favor. Because if you read this article literally....oh my...

DragonKnight  +   1214d ago
You actually thought this article was funny? It was a terrible article. Dude tries to troll way too hard. He also sounds like he doesn't know jack about gaming at all when trolls that hard. It's pretty pathetic.

Anyway, New Dante sucks, DmC is trash, and I hope some Capcom execs get fired.
Bimkoblerutso  +   1214d ago
It's fairly clear that he's parodying the arguments of the game's proponents.

Though as far as the article goes, I have to agree with you. Sterling routinely writes some of the most unfunny, ham-fisted satire this side of Michael Moore's Canadian Bacon.

timeon11111111111  +   1215d ago
I read the article. But whether this guy is sarcastic or not, it´s clear to me that he is biased, and supports DmC.

Take it or sarcasm or whatever, but clearly this guy has an agenda.

What really is pathetic is how people worship this fat ass.
But i guess if he says "DmC Dante IS GOOD", all the DmC supporters go "Well done Jim".

It´s all about taking sides.
I am intelligent and honest enough to realize and admit that i am on the hating side (with good reasons).
People like fat ass Sterling will however say he´s a good guy, but take a side and talk trash to those who oppose his opinion.

Then again majority of sites are using this whole controversy to become known (attention whores much?), and even Capcom have have consciously created this controversy to let the hatred market the game for them.
amaguli  +   1215d ago
Jim is know for trolling hard and being very sarcastic. Honestly though he does comes off as very unprofessional, and because of this I never trust his reviews.
timeon11111111111  +   1215d ago
Define a troller:
- Someone who´s an arsehole to person A, but not to person B?

or someone:
- who trolls EVERYONE.

This guy isn´t trolling. He´s just a fat ass who has a ego (created by DmC supporters/people who agree with his opinion(s)).

And he thinks that his opinion is right. You know the scene with "fill your dark soul with light" that he has mentioned in the article? He used that same scene when he trash talked DMC serie in his crap show.
He picks a bad area of DMC serie and exposes it to the DmC supporters or haters to say "My opinion is right".
Here is a epic scene from DMC 1. Before watching it remember this was DMC 1. The gameplay standard had not been established (this was established with DMC 3). So developers could not focus on story like Ninja theory is doing with DmC reboot because they already have the gameplay formula layed out for them with 10 years of gameplay.

I am sure this fat ass has good sides of him. And if he wasn´t such a disgustable asshole who breeds hate with his ugly face and agenda - i think he could have been a nice person in Gaming industry to watch.

But clearly he is a biased fat ass who thinks he´s cool...

I think he is trolling. He wrote this piece with the intent of pissing people off. Now if he were to back his opinions up with clear examples, then that is a different story.

This is a troll article plain and simple. But I do agree that his very egotistical.
VileAndVicious  +   1214d ago
"The gameplay standard had not been established (this was established with DMC3"

100 percent disagree with this. But agree with most of the other things you wrote.

Why choose DMC3 as the gameplay standard? Because its your favorite?

Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   1214d ago
He was trolling. VERY HARD.
vortis  +   1214d ago
I feel bad for the people who disagree that he was trolling.

This line alone is completely and utterly ridiculous..." Videogames have taught me that if I don't want to stick my penis and/or vagina in something (or have something stick its penis and/or vagina into me) then I can't connect with it on an emotional level, and therefore cannot play the game. This is why I can barely get five minutes into Ico, but have spent a cumulative thirteen years playing Ridge Racer."
Frankfurt  +   1215d ago
May he is.

But this is still a 30fps action game, something even worse than a 30fps racing game.

The new DmC game is geared towards a degenerate COD fanboy generation.
Thats how its built from the ground up.
Oh.. so sad.
