"I dont care if Dante looks like crap, if it plays good then im buying it."

You obviously have no idea why people are upset do you, it's not just about the hair how many times does it have to be said. It was the first complaint when it was first shown off but with so much info now on the game we have a ton more complaints not to mention how arogant and ignorant Capcom/Ninja Theory are about this game and the amount of horrible things they've said about the franchise and it's fans.

Could you or someone name some of the complaints besides the hair?

I have only played DMC 4, and I liked it. I've never been a fan of the series, but I am liking this game, so I suppose I am a new fan, with this new reboot.

Fanboys like you make gamers look bad. Quit being so aggressive and condescending. He said he might like the game. I've been a fan of the whole series and I think this game looks very good.

We get it. You like the old games. Then go play those again and keep the rest to yourself. What gives you the right to talk down to anyone else, about anything?

It looks like ninja theory has made a solid game. Fan boys will bitch but nearly every single gaming journalist who has gotten hands on time with it says it plays awesome and that they went from skeptical to fully on board.
Jinkies  +   881d ago
Why should I, all the complaints have been said a hundred times on this site alone. Go through past DmC articles if you want to know, I really can't be arsed repeating what people have already said before. Seriously if you really think there isn't any complaints about this game other then the hair comment then your just lying to yourself


LOL, how does my comment make me look like a fanboy, take a look below at GrahamGoldens comment, if it was something like that fair enough but it isn't.

Seriously you guys who like the look of the game or wernt a fan of past DmC games always have to bash peoples opinions down for not liking it when we have solid reasons not to. I mean the first thing you said was fanboy and you know when that happens it's really because the person can't think of anything else to say about something to counter their comment, it's the same with the "Your a troll" remark.

EDIT: Who says I'm butthurt, just pointing out the facts. As I said theres more to it then just the hair, thats a fact, not being butthurt, as I was saying before your really grasping at straws in this argument, you can't think of anything to say so your trying your hardest to come up with stuff, stuff which isn't true. I couldn't care less what journalists think about the game, we all know what goes on behind closed doors...money. Capcom needs this game to succeed so they'll do anything to achieve that, they would of done the same to RE6 if they knew it was going to get bad scores.

"I also said I was a fan of all the original games"

Yeah...well anyone can say that. How do I know your just saying that to make it LOOk like my point has no meaning.

You're a fanboy cause you're all butthurt by them changing elements of a game that has outdated mechanics. You said to look through past articles for the other complaints? The first batch of articles you find through the tag is about how a "reboot is just what they needed" and "how dmc turned public opinion around!" And other generally positive articles. People who actually have jobs related to the field are praising the game while the kids who like to complain on the Internet bash the new mechanics, the new aesthetics and the developers.

I also said I was a fan of all the original games as well so your last point doesn't make much sense

Well basically, most likely everything you saw and played in Devil May Cry 4 will not be seen in this DmC game, the reboot is basically a new Devil May Cry / Heavenly Sword inspried IP that only keeps the names of the characters, enemies and weapons. Everything looks different (art style / graphics, Unreal Engine 3) , the feel is different (feels easy to me, dont know what difficulty they put the demos but getting S ranks are just easy just as staying in the air forever for combos are too, and there is the morphing city), the characters just are different (voice, look, personality etc.) and the story is different (The Order which is led by new Virgil is in search of Dante to have him hopefully join them to get rid of the demons together).

One of the only major complaints for Devil May Cry 4 was you only got to play as Dante for half the game, and now in this new reboot, you dont get to play with him at all.
OptimisticPrime  +   881d ago
There it is. The good ol' kid on the Internet complaining about how companies want to make money. Not really worth arguing with you anymore since you clearly have no sense.

Yes. Money is how companies thrive, fuck's sake. This complaint of "evil companies that only think about bottom dollar" shit needs to stop. Good games sell. More sales mean more $$$. Therefore the only thing a lust for money is doing is encouraging developers to keep making polished games.

Also, if it was money grubbing wouldn't they try to please the most people possible? Not a divisive redesign?

So many Tameem lovers here. Not surprising though.

"Fanboys like you make gamers look bad."

Cant wait for the demo personally, Ive been following this game for some time. Hope it plays well and has a good story. Thats all I care about.
Sevir  +   880d ago
Blacktric Did you just call people here who expressed interest in the game a tameem lover
The nerve of you whinny bitching kids who think you're entitled to ever god damn thing on this planet. IF YOU HATE THE GAME SO MUCH AND HAVENT PLAYED IT to know how it feels or stands up to the previous DMC games! NEWS FLASH, Go buy the HD collection for 20 bucks and shut the Hell up. at this point the bitching has turned moot, it holds no water and the only thing you are all bitching about is hoping the game fails because you dont like the fact that Dante looks different.

This site is swarming with pricks like you who bitch and whine for no damn reason it may have been legitimate 2 years ago when what they showed wasn't ready for the public but after playing the game in NYC I share the same validations as the press who've seen and experience it. The Game fucking Rocks. you're opinions on the matter have no weight because you haven't played it. you only judge from trailers and youtube video's in high compression.
RyuX19  +   877d ago
Jinkies, apparently you are fanboy if you don't like being disrespected by a company. Who cares what OptimisticPrime has to say you are right in my book.

Can't wait to give the demo a try - I hope I enjoy it!

It's funny...I can't shake the feeling that this new reboot looks great! I for one like the new look....it's basicly emp-rock version. Where as the earlier Dante is heavy metal rock version. So I see what they did there.

Gameplay looks similar but emphasis on more air combat. That's cool. Story is reworked...that's disappointing but I have faith ninja theory know their story telling.

I've prepaid my copy already.

-I've played every devil may cry. I even like dmc2...if you felt like dante wasn't himself....he's in his late 40's and his spirit has been beaten down. If you can finish the game...you get to see the young Dante come out. The smirk on his fade is classic.

But it was massively repetitive. And had little of the humor people wanted.
VileAndVicious  +   881d ago
The most badass moment of DMC2 was when Dante shot the final boss(flaming satan guy...I forget his name)in face.

But yeah the game was overly repetitive. I honestly dont see how this reboot could be any worse than DMC2 or DMC4, but i plan on giving it a shot.
Lou Ferrigno  +   881d ago
well,i for one welcome change .. if everything stayed the same in every game it would be boring and console gaming would of killed itself off a looong time ago.. :)-
myd-nyte  +   881d ago

Hey there. As stated, there are many reasons besides the popular "Dante's look change" that is everywhere on the net. My personal gripe is more geared towards the direction of the game. They left many holes after DMC 4. The addition of Nero added a new question to the story. Is he Dante and Virgil's relative? if so then how is he related? With this new DMC, those question won't be answered. This story is suppose to be set in an alternate reality as it was stated months ago due to the backlash. So now you have a Dante who isn't human any more. He is an angel/demon hybrid. This alone changed the dynamics of him because as we fans all know, the original was a demon/human hybrid. I respect anyone's decision to buy the game because it's your money and your preference. I just want ppl to understand that not every fan who has issues with this game is solely based on his look. That is just usually what many ppl commenting on many site and journalist prefer to focus on because either they read that this is the cause or they choose to ignore the other reasons because they want to be confrontational on the issue or whatever their true motivation may be. Enjoy what ever game you feel like purchasing with your money.

i think everyone has to learn that people have different opinions...
everytime there is a dmc article... we go through the same arguments.
timeon11111111111  +   881d ago
Before all of you who kisses Ninja theory's ass and PORTRAY deliberatly Ninja theory as great developers of video GAMES read this:

1) Capcom gave lesson on how to make DMC gameplay to Ninja theory.

2) They have supervised the DmC project
3) They also helped (yes helped) Ninja theory developers with gameplay of DmC. In MANY interviews the gameplay cooperation where Capcom developer and Ninja theory developer work together to shape the gameplay is described as CLOSE AND INTENSE. Meaning Ninja theory hasn't been making this gameplay by themself.

4) Everything by DMC has been INVENTED - that is developed for first time by tons of other people that aren't Ninja theory. Character and foundation story of DMC (Demons vs world and Dante) was created by Hideki Kamiya.

The fast paced and unique gameplay concepts was developed by Hideki Kamiya + Capcom. Attacks such as Stinger, Million stab etc, and the chain comboing. All of that is thanks to Hideki Kamiya and Capcom. NOT Ninja theory.

Credit is due where credit is deserved:
Motion capture is Ninja theory's work. So is the audio etc.

But when it comes to DmC's story it seems Ninja theory team has been ripping off V for Vendeta and They Live, and mixed those movie's plots with DMC's plot.

SO TO SAY that Ninja theory has created a good video game or a solid game is crediting Ninja theory to much. As i pointed out above why.
Their task was to make a "great story DMC" because they are great at storyTELLING. Personally i think their job on story so far is mediocre. Motion capture is only think that's worth mentioning. But good graphics doesn't equal a good game because a good gameplay equals a good game. Games like Pacman, Alien Invaders etc. Those were the purest form of games before the story aspect came to games because people liked mix of interaction (games) + movie.

But if you move away from what videogames is about you will draw closer to what is called A MOVIE, which is what Ninja theory is more of a movie/animation studio than actual great developers. They even went to Hollywood with Enslaved movie concept:
They got rejected.

Even their philosphy is messed up "Elevate games so that it can compete with literature and movies" - why? There are books (good stories), there are movies (more visual + good stories), and then there are video games (interaction). You can try to attempt to mix all three and make a great "melting pot", but if your philosphy is to compete with movies and literature stories then you have wrong goals.

And the funny thing of all things is that certain people or sites refer to DmC as "Ninja theory's " - as in their game. It's simply Capcoms and this person in this article gets it.

Ninja theory was handed DMC and got lucky.
Their job is to recycle the gameplay of DMC, with tweaks of their own (that probably won't matter much), and a "fresh" new look with realistical art instead of anime like. To make the game look "OMG this is ground breaking!", even though it's probably just a new skin with equal to or lesser gameplay of DMC 3/4.

Their primary task was to fix DMC's story. But instead they overwrote it with permission of Capcom. They didn't expand on DMC story, but overwrote it by creating a new "parallel" story (which btw is bullshit corporate term for CHANGing stuff).

And i have to say that the story so far...is anything but good. It's really pathetic to be honest.
timeon11111111111  +   881d ago
A extra comment on Ninja theory. Their focus is on story and art right? And when it comes to art i find that they are doing very good. That is very good of them. Story however i don't find them anything spectacular, and i even hear Ninja theory hired people to write the stories for them.

But listen, if you as a game developer can't stimulate people on the purest level of video gaming which is JUST GAMEPLAY:

Then your really bad video game developer.

Because story and art is really good things to have in a video game, but what comes first is GAMEPLAY. You need a good gameplay.

DMC isn't as popular just because of Dante alone, it's because people enjoy the gameplay.


Story and art distracts people from creating good gameplay concepts because they imagine a game with a story (similar to Asassin Creed) and graphic and forget the important aspect : the gameplay.

Create a fun gameplay concept - i gurantee you - you will have a fun and successful videogame that will confirm that you are IN FACT a good video game developer.

And your game will regain fans and earn money for you. I've played Angry birds like once or two, but SO MANY people with Iphone or Ipad has played that game. Does it have a story ? No.
And now there are Angry birds teddy bears, iphone docks etc.
