Ninja Theory Looking At DmC Devil May Cry Demo Feedback

Siliconera- Capcom held a DmC Devil May Cry fan Q&A this morning with Ninja Theory’s Dom Matthews. During the Q&A, Matthews fielded a number of rapid-fire questions from fans regarding various aspects of the game, including the recent demo and feedback received from it. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yeah sure... I already heard it straight from that Tameem dude who's in charge of the game. They don't care what fans think, it's going to ship exactly how it is. It was insulting to see how he treated fans who brought up serious issues with the demo.

What are those serious issues?
I only played the demo for about ten minutes or so and was actually enjoying it, I didn't do the boss fight though.
Not trying to pick an argument or anything, just curious.

It's all kind of technical... Short reply would be "It's not DMC"

They changed pretty much everything about the controls, art, and gameplay. DMC3 and 4 was about stringing short combo's together, to make larger combos... Now, he just does 15 hit combo's by mashing triangle... I made a short video with a few issue's I'd found, planning to start shooting another today.

And the "Demon Dodge" is broken, though not in that video.

All in all, it is like handing Zelda to off to a western studio, that turns him into something more akin to Conan. It just doesn't feel like DMC, or look like it... And the gameplay is way to simple minded for a Devil May Cry entry.

DMC 1 is my all time favorite video game ever. The cheesy dialogue, over the top action, the athestics, all the insane difficulties of which I beat everyone and still have the save on my ps3 fatty to prove it all make up in my mind one of the most pioneering bad ass action games ever. Having said all that I hated the new DMC when it was first announced, but then I got to play the demo. I must say changing the controls the way they did and going with a sub 60fps were huge risks, but the pudding is in the play and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe it's because nothing good in the action game genre has come out in a while, but i thought it was actually pretty good. I like the fact I have to learn a new control scheme, but it still retains some of the button press patterns of old. I have only sunk about an hour into the combat in the demo, but if someone like me who holds DMC so high feels the way I do, then surely others may be overstating their hatred for nostalgia's sake. Sure the initial trailer and new look were crap, but were actually getting a fleshed out story instead of a paragraph in the intro describing the whole plot. See I love DMC so much that I want to see a story because I love the character so much, as long as the action is there and so far it seems it is. I hated the direction they took with 4 and only hinted at cool story elements from the past games. At least this time we get to play as Dante. I'll play the whole game before I give final judgement but I must say it does not seem all bad at this point.

Dude you took the words right out of my mouth and I agree with you 100 percent DMC1 will always be the best in the franchise to me and Ive always held it in high regard. I really enjoyed the new DMC demo but I think alot of people dont like it because they are comparing it to DMC 3 and DMC 4 (sparatic combo driven over the top gameplay) to me this reboot is more in line with the first two DMC games instead. Its still very different but I dont know how to describe it but to me at least while its different it really does feel like a Devil may cry game.
Jinkies  +   1170d ago

Have you seen the video Hanso posted on the last DMC article, the guy in the video shows you tweets of fans giving NT feedback and that prick Tameemi Antoniades basicaly saying how it's not a problem and thats theres nothing wrong with the game

It's the best video for any other ignorant people saying "People are ONLY complaining because of the hair style"

35.24 for the tweets people

2 requests. Remove auto lock-on and a single launcher button
bayonetta  +   1171d ago
What is the reason for removing the manual lock?

We wanted to build a system that didn’t rely on manual lock. That was a decision made very early on by Capcom and ourselves.
“We wanted to build a system that didn’t rely on manual lock” Can you elaborate on this? Explain the rationale?

On the lock-on, I fully understand that people miss it, but it isn’t something that is in the game. We’ve worked hard to make an auto lock-on system that works really well, and I’m confident that with time it is something that you’ll adapt to. But I reiterate, I hear you.

Simon_Brezhnev  +   1171d ago
I know right they just wanted to be lazy. If the game fails NT will blame Capcom. If it does good they will ruin Onimusha if they get the green light. They will make it set in Europe. LOL

I like how the interviewer called him out about Dante wearing a UK flag. He know damn well its because he's in UK.
frelyler  +   1171d ago
Ummmmm, Onimusha 3 was set in Europe for part of the game and it was a really good game. So yeah...
Simon_Brezhnev  +   1170d ago

Even if it was in europe it was not westernize. Just about every western dev that touched a japanese franchise ruined it.
Mocat  +   1170d ago
Onimusha i get sad every time i think what could happen to this game i dont want more drama from ninja theory.
GenoZStriker  +   1170d ago
-_- That was my reaction to that answer as well. He basically could not give a valid reason other than "You'll get used to it," or "You don't need it"
baodeus  +   1170d ago
If the auto lock on is something like ninja gaiden, it would be good actually

However it's not like Ninja Gaiden (black). It's FAR worse.
DEATHxTHExKIDx  +   1171d ago
I probably wont buy when it comes out. Ill wait till its knocked down a bit in price. BUT, I would buy this game the combat was pretty sick to me.
Vandamme21  +   1171d ago
I played the demo...and in my personal opinion...this game beats DMC4..this game offers a lot of awesome moves.

combat is worse than DMC 3 or 4 it has a lot of issues
frelyler  +   1171d ago
What issues would those be? Are you saying you did not think DMC 3 had good combat?
Vandamme21  +   1171d ago
did u even play the demo...the game kicks dmc4 ass..dmc4 was a let down.
VileAndVicious  +   1162d ago

Just curious....But you always bring up DMC 3 and 4. Have you ever played the other two games in the series? And Im not trying to pick a fight with you or anything Im just curious

Because it seems to me that while its definitely not like the most recent two games its a bit similar to the first two.

But most gamers of this generation I know havent played the earlier games in the franchise (at least not until recently with the HD collection being availible)

BTW Dmc 4 in my opinion is probably among the worst in the series. Theres honestly not too many positive things I can say about it. Its like....if you think Dante is a douche in the reboot he wasnt exactly charming in Dmc 4. Hell he was kind of annoying in Dmc 3 . But the gameplay was so awesome I let it slide .
arronax-1  +   1170d ago
alegolo  +   1170d ago
the bad thing about DMC4 was doing areas more than once. but the GAMEPLAY was excellent like 3, very fast combat at 60 fps.

the gameplay of DmC is terrible and casual, dmc used to be better than GOW but this year GOW:A is looking better
Hanso  +   1170d ago
well said
Ben_Grimm  +   1167d ago
DmC's combat is casual? Are you serious? What is this casual? You can chain combos, use different techniques and different weapons while in combos. Everything you can do from DMC3 and 4 you can do in this new DmC.

How is it casual?

I think a lot of people are getting their terms and lack of understanding in the way of a really great game that has potential.

I for one was impressed with DmC and even though I won’t buy it because I hardly buy any game. I will rent it from Gamefly and if I truly like then I'll buy it from them for a used price.
VileAndVicious  +   1162d ago
I dont think Dmcs combat is casual the controls are more accessible. looks like some of the unlockable difficulties are pretty challenging

This DMC > DMC 4

While trying to maintain graphical integrity the game is dumbed down.

Next Gen 60 fps and high speed battles will return...but until then this is what we get.

You might not know...but their is a step in game developing where things have to be taken away to have good presentation.

Right now current gen hardware can't produce the game you want to see while having good graphics.

It's a stepping stone several developers use..example is this..

"We can't make a fast paced game...but what we can do is make him younger and this more of an origins story so that he isn't as fast and skilled yet so that when new hardware can be used to flesh out more resources we will make him faster, stronger and smoother to make the impact that much more."

It's done everyday and most likely mandated by the publisher...not Ninja Theory.
alegolo  +   1170d ago
so pretty graphics and shitty gameplay(DmC) is better than average graphics and great gameplay(MGR:R)?
i3eyond the Circle  +   1170d ago
not from my view.

From Publisher marketing guys...Yes.

I've worked with them before...they don't have gamers as a priority...just how they can impact sales with illusionary tactics.
Der_Kommandant  +   1171d ago
I have and idea...

How about, give the franchise to Platinum Games
shempo  +   1171d ago
i can see this coming if ninja theory version flop or capcom cancel the series
GenoZStriker  +   1170d ago
It's honestly what I think will happen as well. Some here don't believe it, but I do not think Capcom would have given the franchise over to a Western developer if this was not their last ditch to make huge profit from it. There is no way, if they willingly chose to do so, that they would go back.
A7XEric  +   1170d ago
Maybe Platinum's combat with Ninja Theory's storytelling?
shempo  +   1171d ago
DmC 3 nuff said
A7XEric  +   1170d ago
Why do the fans of the series not understand this is a reboot? Yea the combat system is different. Yea the art direction is different. If this would DMC5 I would see reason to complain, but because this is a reboot I don't understand the complaining.

The demo both played and looked great.
Mocat  +   1170d ago
Think about this, Imagine your favorite game maybe one you grew up with, all those great memories, all the skill you got from learning the game, and than just flush all of it down the toilet.
Ben_Grimm  +   1167d ago
Or think of it this way, the talent and producer who made DmC is gone. And even if they continued I bet 100% we would get a lot of folks complaining about the game being the same thing or redundant.

Now that Capcom breathed new life into the series people are upset and why? Because Dante doesn't look like an Anime character?

"all those great memories, all the skill you got from learning the game"

Your Great memories are still there, that's why we call it nostalgia and you shouldn't live in it. All the skill you got? Can it not be translated to this game? Was it supposed to automatically carry over from every sequel?

Get the skill to play this game and enjoy!
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   1167d ago
A problem with your idea Ben, this game doesn't require any skill at all, I beat the demo in the highest difficulty available using a single attack. That's a fucking joke frankly for an action game.
timeon11111111111  +   1169d ago
Wait a minute...wait a minute ...WAIT A MINUTE!!!!

I thought i was (as a fan) A SOURCE OF CREATIVE BANKTRUPTCY!
