lMFAO that DmC was not mention

I think DMC is going the story route, then the Gameplay route. Ninja Theory has always been about the story than their gameplay. Just look at Enslaved and Heavenly Sword and I doubt their third title will be much different. I plan on getting it though.

i was thinking due to the reception of the demo that any hype for this game dyed and only ninja theory fans are defending it

NovusTerminus1858d ago

Keep in mind though. Ninja Theory did not write HS and Enslaved. They hired people for that...

The anti government, controlling the world through dept plot for DmC is their first time writing...

@Lord Me, I didn't know that. I might have to reconsider my day one purchase. I love the story in their previous games and the connection between Monkey and the girl (I forgot her name) was unique and meaningful. I really wanted a sequel for the game.

I might have to see what games that writer has done before and what that writer is doing now. Big Thanks, Bubs to you.

EDIT: I see there was more than one writer for Heavenly Sword (Rhianna Pratchett, who is also doing Tomb Raider), the writer for Enslaved (Alex Garland) and Andy Serkis, who was involved with both titles (I seen The Hobbit Friday, and now I understand why I like those two games).

Just saying if you can't remember the name of a character(especially a lead) from a game which apparently prides itself on story. Then the story probably wasn't that good. LOL JUST SAYING.

@ animegamingnerd

I wasn't aware of people defending it in the first place.

- DMC got an honorable mention at the end of the article along with The Wonderful 101. I don't DMC will be a bad game, I just think there are better ones out there.

Both the PS3 and the WIIU has a Hack and Slash exclusive coming out next year, where is Microsoft's?

I think they all will be great and do well, but I will reserve judgement until I get to play them all.

Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes.

Just as last time with the first, I believe that Bayonetta 2 will keep it's title as hack N slash champion in my opinion.
