DmC Devil May Cry demon sex scene enrages fans

A tongue in cheek and rather tame sex scene in Capcom's DmC Devil May Cry has caused massive upset amongst a number of fans. Is it justified? (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm upset with much more than just a sex scene...

Those who want to buy this game, go for it. I won't try to stop you. However me personally, as a fan of the Devil May Cry series since its first outing on PS2 back in the day... Both this company and this game have been an insult to me. Those who think I don't have reasons are more than welcome to ask for some, because I will gladly give you plenty as to why.

sorry blitz i'll take this space...

support Platinum Games instead, Anarchy Reigns coming Jan 8 for just $29.99 it's also coming to Europe! i already have the game it's fantastic! a much much better game than this wannabe DMC game

trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

i said NO to this DmC game since the very first "embarrassing" trailer and i'm still on my word, cheap trailers, sex scenes and DLCs won't change my mind....i hope it stinks, cuz if it does, Capcom will stop outsourcing their games to the west and it will give them a big wake up call...but if this game did well, we will lose any hope of a true DMC game and Capcom will continue to ruin their own games by relying on western devs

DMC is a Japanese game it should go to japan nuff said!

A sex scene? This game has devolved so much that it had to include a sex scene? There's no way in hell anyone can link this to the REAL Devil May Cry series. How pathetic. Tameem is trying to live out his sexual fantasies vicariously with this game isn't he? This game is so full of fail. I hope it tanks hard.
aCasualGamer  +   645d ago
I have to agree with Snookies12. As a Devil May Cry fan, i am really pissed off at both Capcom and Ninja Theory. Capcom for licensing out this great franchise to such poor devs as Ninja Theory.. and Ninja Theory for being such poor devs. The face of the company at Ninja Theory, don't remember his name... the producer who wanted Dante to look like him, has been awful toward fans of the series and the way he treats potential customers is in the most obnoxious way i have ever seen.

I can point out a handful of reasons that make this game not worth buying for fans of the series. Alot of them have to do with the gameplay and the game engine that they are using, but PERSONALLY, the artistic and creative input from Ninja Theory are the things that piss me off the most.

I was always a fan of the series beauty, the artstyle and aura of this franchise were always that of goth, it was beautiful. Even though the dialogue of the story was sometimes bad, i loved to follow the story. The vibe of the games, was something unlike anything in the gaming market.

I'm not the one to jump the gun and dislike a game because of a new creative direction immediately. BUT.. and this is a big but(pun not intended)... first impressions are vital, especially when fans of the series expect nothing but fan service from a game such as Devil May Cry(where gameplay is the driver of this franchise). The gameplay has been neutralized in a way i could never imagine, don't mind the fact that S's are easy to acquire (goes against what the mechanic is for), i'm not overstating this point one bit, literally 4 hits and you have a SSS. They removed the freedom you have when choosing how to fight, instead you are forced to use a specific weapon for specific enemies. Basically, meaning if you don't play the game as Ninja Theory wants you can't enjoy it. Guns are useless. I could go on for ages, about the gameplay but the thing that pisses me off personally, is right in there in this sex scene. That proves my point, where first impressions usually have lot of meaning. I practically knew, that after the first trailer was released, i wouldn't be getting a Devil May Cry game i would enjoy.

I would love to see the Dante in Devil May Cry 4 return in a new game with Vergil. The story has so much potential. I want to delve deeper into the Sparda storyline and Vergil. Not about how authorities control us and monitor us, i don't like to be reminded of such things when playing games, when i play videogames i want to escape from reality. Not about how government is controlling us through sodas. *facepalm*

The only chance i will ever be able to enjoy a Devil May Cry game is if Capcom pull out the stick that's firmly placed in their ass and realize that pursuing this meaningless crowd pleasing of western gamers is only going to hurt them in the end. Realize that what you had to begin with was alright, too many games today need their japanese input back. I wish i could go back to the series, enjoy the victorian/goth/punk mix of the art. Personal opinion anyway, but lots of fans of the series will end up hating the gameplay i'm sure of it.

Snookies12  +   645d ago | Well said
Man where to start... We all know quite a few people didn't like the new look. That's the first and most obvious one. The guy that's overseeing the game, (can't recall his name) has been so immature and unprofessional toward fans of the series it makes me sick. People on Twitter brought up legitimate concerns after the demo was released and his replies were downright infantile and rude in some cases. He even revealed that they weren't taking the development seriously.

I came in wanting to like the game, I really did when I got the demo. However I was disappointed right off the bat. First off, it's easy as hell. Even on the hardest difficulties. The enemies are so stupid, they barely even do anything. You can get an SSS combo in about 15 seconds and never lose it until you're hit. You can use the same move over and over for an SSS combo. You can get an SSS rank completion on a level even if you have the lowest rank for both time and enemies killed. Guns are no longer an option for fighting because it takes literally 30 seconds to kill one enemy with straight gunfire (unlike previous games which you could kill an enemy within 10). The weapons are unbalanced. There's no point in using his angel weapon when the demon one destroys like it does. The 30 FPS does not look appealing, but I can let that one slide. The dialogue is horrible from what I've seen and heard. I've seen countless videos of the demo having game breaking glitches and the guy overseeing the game said that the game would ship this way without fixes for them. Also, if the rumors about the story are true... It is going to be the most laughable ending ever, seriously... As well as the fact that Capcom/NT have been saying they've proven the angry fans wrong, and that the game is great.

Those are some of the things off the top of my head.

i totally agree. "sex scene enrages fans" what fans? i don't think there are any fans left after capcom has repeatedly ignored and ridiculed the very people they are trying to sell the game to. i mean if you are not targeting this game at the fans why don't you create a new IP? and if they were targeting this game at the fans why did they purposely ignore their feedback despite all the criticism? i think capcom has lost the plot.

Yeah, man. I have been playing DMC since the first title on PS2. I enjoy the series and to be fair the re-imaging didn't bother me in the slightest. I guess I wasn't as invested as other fans in the series. A new look didn't bother me as long as the game turned out okay.

Unfortunately, I disliked the demo too. The 30fps lock obviously put me off initially, but I hear the PC version supports 60fps? Either way it doesn't matter because I didn't like the whole direction of the game so I won't be playing it at all.

I didn't get to try the other difficulty settings before I deleted the demo off my hard drive. I am glad you gave reasons why you disliked it other than "its not Dante". Sorry that a franchise you obviously care about has been reduced to this. I hope people resist temptation and support this game.

Yes, the developers are very arrogant too. That wouldn't stop me buying a game if it was good, but they simply can't back up what they claim.

wich is why it's ridiculous that they manage to use worse dialogues .

Especically when all everyone can't shut up about , when it comes to Ninja Theory , is the supposed ability to be great storytellers .

To be fair , i agree that Heavenly Sword had a neat story and presentation . But's that's it for the extent of my praises of that studio

Anyway it bears the question , what does that game even does better than past dmcs titles ? Combat is worse , dialogue so far aint great , graphics aint even better than dmc4 all things tech-wise considered (it just have obviously a different artstyle and use lightning better IN 2012) ...

Lol, you are upset about that scene that barely lasts ten seconds, are you serious? They didn't show any nudity, no penises hell even Grand Theft Auto shows penis, and they are demons to top it off. Why is it ok for one series to have sex everywhere, while another cannot, is it because it has to have sex from its inception to be acceptable or what?

Consider it like this: It'd be like Disney adding a sex scene to one of their movies. It's because the series isn't about crap like that. They've attempted to turn the game into something that it's not supposed to be, and fans are outraged at it.

Not to mention a plethora of other reasons that I shouldn't need to spell out for you. But if you really think it's because of one scene, try reading around a bit, it makes you look ignorant.
DragonKnight  +   645d ago
It's because of WHY the sex scene is in the game. Tameem shoe horned it in there because "all the big games" have had a sex scene lately. Games like Mass Effect or God of War (which are better games) had in there but with Mass Effect they added it to enhance a relationship status and with God of War they added them because Kratos is like the Honey Badger, he don't give a sh*t.

But DmC added it because Tameem doesn't know how to move on from old ideas. DmC is literally a mish mash of Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, and now other games with sex scenes in them. It's a travesty of a game that should never have come into existence.
VileAndVicious  +   645d ago
um...i just dont get it a sex scene has everyone up in arms? soooo the scene in DMC4 when Trish (ahem) sorry Gloria was fighting those demons that was ok? And if youve played DmC4 before you know what Im talking about

lol but honestly its not like these "enraged" fans were people who were ever going to give this game a shot to begin with. Im pretty sure you werent actually considering buying this game then saw there was a sex scene (which is very old news BTW) and this ONE thing just completely turned them off.

For the ones objecting, it is a reboot, if a reboot was the same devil may cry it would defeat the purpose of a reboot. Some people will just have to accept that times are changing, and I have a feeling it's more of the younger audiences that hate it than the older ones.

The reasons stated are assumptions of why it was in, but no one really knows until it's asked from the creators. Any game that has sex in it, is not necessary but it's in it anyway. Technically speaking any game with a story is not needed, all a game needs is gameplay a reason isn't necessary. It's just that players are more use to a storyline nowadays than the early years.

@Gaming_Guru

Idjit! I'd halfway expect someone to say something like that. Sex really shouldn't be in gaming at all!! but In the Devil May Cry series it was no where to be seen, but had that Asain Culture feel to it.

@Vile and Vicious
I believe there is a difference between a SEX Scene and being Sexy. No where in Devil May Cry 4 was there a sex scene just a character model from Eastern gaming that focus on ACCENTUATING the women's bodies. If you do not know the meaning of the word look it up. Clearly not Sex.

I agree with everything Snookies said also!! Bubble up for you Snookies! Cheers

Umm, let me show you something that proves that DMC4's style meter was in no way as easy to build up as DmC's is. For starters, take a look at DmC's broken style meter.

Literally it took 3 seconds to get a SSS rating. Now look at this badass playing DMC4 with Dante and see him utterly destroy enemies before even getting a SS rating, and then humiliating Berial and getting a SSS rating.

When you spend your hard earned money to get some entertainment once in a while and into a game and franchise that you enjoy, yes, you of course expect quality.

Why do i complain? I choose to invest time and money in my hobby, and gaming industry has always been there to repay me. But lately it seems more companies care about making money more so than anything else, including keeping dignity intact. Just take a look at the scene. Has absolutely nothing in common with the series.

No troubles for me as it is really easy for me to not purchase this product, but when they use us fans and lie to the media by saying "we have listened to the hardcore devil may cry fans" by marketing this product as a true DMC game, you can bet your ass i'll be there to prove them wrong.

ABizzel1  +   645d ago
@Snookies

That's the entire point of this game. To give Dante an appropriate backstory.

Old Dante's backstory was he's the half demon and half human son of Sparda, and has a brother named Virgil who shares his lineage.

THAT's IT. What's there to complain about. They are trying to refresh a character that we know nothing about.

There's nothing there, and Capcom hired Ninja Theory to develop a game to improve and explain Dante as a character. That being said I wished they only hired them for story development and art style. I like most of the things about the new look, but overall it's an improvement to the constant castles and cathedrals of previous DMC's.

If you want to complain about the new look of Dante, then I can understand that. Did I prefer the old look? Yes, but that's nostalgia. Do I mind the new look? No i think he looks fine, and he looks more believable to me. The new loos is how I'd picture Dante (as far as how he looks in cutscenes).

But changing him from 1/2 demon + 1/2 human, to 1/2 demon + 1/2 angel is one of the dumbest complaints you naggers have come up with. If anything it's an improvement cause that means he's even more badass.
VileAndVicious  +   645d ago
@snookies12

its a re-imagining... that means different interpretation.

Dante also didnt ever have a clear background to begin with. All you really know is a basic background his story was never really fleshed out in the games. Yes there was a brief novel and thats what IMO DmC3 should have been based off of.

@ABizzel

Exactly, Im not truly understanding how him being part angel changes anything other than him have an Angel set of moves and adds more depth to the story of his mother. Lol if he was still half human what exactly did that do for the story? Nothing because there was hardly one on his background anyway.

Also just my opinion but Im starting to wonder about him and the half angel thing anyway because they have not shown or talked about any other angels in any of the trailers so far.

No Seraphim what you fail to realize is that alot of us fans are pretty pissed at all the unnecessary changes. Capcom, this generation has insulted us gamers, and put us in the category with everyone else. Saying that if they change this, and add that, we will buy because it has the title of DMC. But then added nothing. Just changed it all. I was a fan of the series due to pretty much everything it had going for it and yet they changed it. Dante used to be cool and collect, always knowing the correct thing to say in a cool, suave, voice. Yet now its COMPLETELY tasteless all lost in Capcoms greed and NT ever so strong desire to be 'cool' Even some of the smaller lines 'KAT- There you are...DANTE- Here I am' .....WAIT WHAT?! Evereyone already knows he's there, thats what graphics are for. Even the small back and fourth is tasteless. They added this scene, just to say they did. Just to be cool. So when you say that sex was never in a DMC sarcastically, you might be right, but it's never been tastelessly THROWN in there like everything in this game feels like it was... That's not a dumb reason to hate this game. As a matter of fact, with all the unwelcome changes to an already awesome series, I would say the combat is the only thing NOT worth bitching about. Look at Ritsuka's comment below. He says it perfectly....and Vickers, God of War has sex scenes in it from GOW1, and it's part of that time period. Kratos killed his wife accidently, so to forget about that, he slept with alot of women. Not to mention youre comparing ancient greece, to a so called modern city. FAIL
...and for those that tell us to quit bitching, freedom of speech is every man's right so piss off....or need I remind you what this game COULD have been if not for the 'bitching' of gamers. You're welcome asshole.

Its a RE-BOOT. Its another persons take on the franchise. Certain things are SUPPOSED to change. Take Batman: Year One for example. In that particular version of Batman lore, Catwoman is a black prostitute.

If you don't like the changes...don't buy the game. Fortunately, as DMC fan with an open mind, I had a great time with the demo.

Many people complaining about wont be buying it, just like some are going to be day-one hypocrites.

But the point is in complaining, in telling Capcom they done f*cked up since announcing this massively changed and unnecessary reboot, is that people are still interested in the series. So that if this title manages to sell under expectations, which is something Capcom will never openly admit, there'll at least be more of a chance of being a DMC5 that goes back to the old story and formula rather than the series being outright canceled.

@ABizzel1:
And you're not listening either. Will be in articles about low sales and poor reviews blaming the people who repeatedly said they weren't buying the damn game - for not buying the damn game.

Just like gamers aren't somehow entitled to expect certain things from the games they buy, such as a certain amount of content and game play, not radical changes to an established IP to such a degree its unrecognizable while lowering the mechanics bar to make offer more mass market appeal, davs and publishers are entitled the the expectation that gamers will buy said unrecognizable title which exploits a known brand name.

come on @Logic, why you never make any sense?

Batman year one is still Batman with just a few changes but the core concepts are still there and you know from the get go that it still is Batman. But what is this DMC reboot?

Story is completely new (including background story, Dante is now the son of a demon and angle), characters while sharing some names with prior games they are completely different in style and attitudes, combat system is more Heavenly Sword than DMC and not to mention that the overall theme and feel of the game is completely new too. This reboot takes itself way too seriously and NT tries too hard and all they do is making the story feel more and more pretentious.

How can you not see something so obvious? And I'm not saying that you shouldn't like the game but from the point of view of a fan this is a betrayal and is hard not to rage.

Holy crap, it astounds me how much people take this series seriously. Here are my points:

- There is a line between "this is a cause for concern" and "this series is completely dead"

- I barely f***ing care how it compares to the original series. It's so different it may as well be its own game, so TREAT IT LIKE THAT. I find certain corners of geek culture get WAY too attached to what's familiar to the point anything different will seem like a bad thing. It will either be a good game on its own or a bad game its own, and it's too early to say. You're looking for things to hate, and you will ONLY find things to hate. You only talk to other people who hate it, and you'll think EVERYONE hates it.

- "It's Heavenly Sword in a new skin?" Good! I liked Heavenly Sword. More specifically, I like Ninja Theory. I barely even pay attention to franchises as entities anymore. I don't care what it's called, what it's a sequel or reboot to, I care who the people making it are. Ninja Theory makes games I like. It's as simple as that.

- For the record, I only thought the demo was okay. I didn't think the action was as good as DMC1 and 3, but I think it can still come together into a good product, but probably a different kind of quality than the rest of the series. I will reserve judgement until I rent it.

No you're not listening. As @Logic said, "If you don't like the changes...don't buy the game."

It's as simple as that. If I don't like it I won't pay for it. But I'm at least going to play it simply because I've enjoyed the previous games. If you feel they changed the game too much and you no longer like it, then speak with your dollar. And if all of you feel you can do better then make your own game instead of nagging in a forum. There are at least 50 of you who constantly complain about this game get, that's a small team of devs. Get up and make your own game or don't buy it. You're not entitled to anything because you didn't pay for the development cost, you didn't pay licensing fees, you didn't pay for each devs. salary, you didn't pay for anything yet. So if you don't like what they did DON'T BUY IT.

There are things I don't like about the game, and in a perfect world Capcom would have made the game while Ninja Theory handled the ascetics such as design changes and story. But that didn't happen so it's up to me to either pass, rent or buy the game if I enjoy it.

@Seraphim

Just wanted to comment on your points.

- There is a line between "this is a cause for concern" and "this series is completely dead"

Overreacting fanboys.

- I barely f***ing care how it compares to the original series.

Can't agree with you more. If you look for only the negatives in things that's all you're going to see. This game has been bullied to death and back, and it's all completely unfair. Are there some things I don't like about the game? Yes, but I'm still going to play the game for myself to determine if it's worth taking another venture in the Ninja Theory's take on DMC. If anything they nailed the new look of the game (especially in cut scenes), and hopefully they'll nail the story as well.

- "It's Heavenly Sword in a new skin?"

I agree with them on this. DmC plays a lot like Heavenly Sword meets DMC. But as you said I enjoyed both games as well, as did many of the people in here that are complaining about it. I wish it stayed more true to DMC, but what's there is enjoyable.

- For the record, I only thought the demo was okay.

Agreed. I thought the demo was okay. I wasn't impressed, but then again it wasn't a huge set piece for the game (besides the boss fight). That being said I only enjoyed DMC3. I went back and played the DMC Trilogy and DMC 1 is enjoyable, but doesn't stand the test of time, DMC 2 was mediocre at best, DMC 3 was a great game and continues to be, and DMC 4 was hit and miss for me because of Nero.

If i had to rank them

DMC 3 (9/10)
DMC 4 (8 /10) (gameplay, and Dante sections)
DMC 1 (8 / 10) (time has been cruel)
DMC 2 (7 / 10)

This game seems to sit somewhere between DMC 1 and DMC 4, but a great story, pacing, and other tidbits could aid it to being a good DMC.

I'm not arguing the direction of the whole game, just the one point he is trying to insult a game for.

I'm just saying, if you're going to knock a game for claiming to "sell sex" to pervert teenagers, then you can't just do it with one specific game, you have to apply it to everything, otherwise your logic means absolutely nothing.

God of War has tits and INTERACTIVE sex sequences. You cannot tell me that interactive sex sequences are crucial to the games story and that the people who decided it should go into the games didn't have the SLIGHTEST intention of using that gameplay element to sell the game to hormonal teenagers.

I'm not saying it's wrong, I'm just saying your logic is irrelevant if you're just going to pick and choose based on what you like and don't like on what is okay and what isn't.

I'm not defending the new DMC in the slightest (I hate the emo/methhead/hilaryswank-looki ng douchebag that the new dante has become), but I still believe in using consistent logic for arguments, no matter how much something deserves to be hated on.

If you're gonna knock DMC for trying to use sex as a sales booster, then you also have to knock GOW for doing it as well, because whether you believe it does or not, sex IS used as a selling point for that game, even though it's a very small one.

What these people are pointing out is that GOW has been using sex in the game since the beginning of the series. GOW has always been a game that has a mature rating while DMC games aren't. Although I have already too much issues with the new game to be bothered about the tasteless and pointless sex scene. You missed the entire point with your argument.

vickers500  +   644d ago
"You missed the entire point with your argument."

No, I haven't.

Let me quote you the original comment, as it seems you have already forgotten it:

"you know a game fails when it need to use sex to cater for the hormone filled teens."

That is a complaint about using sex to sell games to teens. He wasn't speaking specifically about Devil May Cry. "You know ->A<- game fails when it needs to use sex". He said A game, not THIS game. He was complaining about the general tactic itself.

There was nothing in his comment to indicate that he is mad that sex scenes don't fit into DMC, he's just mad that it's going to have one at all. At least based on his comment he is, for all we know, he could just not be very good at articulating himself. But based on what he actually said in his comment, he hates it when "A" game (or "any" game, as they mean the same thing in this context) uses the sex seller tactic.

I feel as though people on this site become incredibly irrational when it comes to something they love or hate, and try to excuse their irrationality by saying "oh well, it deserves any negativity/praise it gets, even if it isn't true, we must, at all costs, love/hate the hell out of this thing".
ChickeyCantor  +   645d ago
I don't get this. The original DMC character was meant to be how this Dante is. It's just dumb Japanese story telling trough misinterpreting what is a "cool guy who is full of himself" regarding the original character.

You sure know what you are talking about.

Btw did you ever consider that you were the one who misinterpreted Dante's character?
Sevir  +   644d ago
Obviously Capcom felt that was the case
Because well, NT was tapped to REBOOT IT! YOU KNOW, RE-IMAGINE... CHANGE, THROW OUT SOME OF THE OLD, START FRESH AND NEW. because perhaps what was in the past was getting stale.

Let's be reasonable. Capcom has never been strong with their writing and narrative. We knew nothing about The character and the series didn't make the smoothest transition to this gen of consoles.

DMC4's Gameplay was great but design philosophy was hit and miss, spotty, It didn't perform as well as they hoped commercially and the fans complained the story sucked, and that they hated Nero, bitched that Dante's sections were redundant especially after getting use to Nero's play style,
so They decided that it was time to reboot.

If they made DMC 5, it would have been a hi-res version of DMC3... Obviously people didn't like that because that was essentially what DMC4 was. No updates to the formula.

At this point people are just grasping at straws... I find it funny how fans of NT are now bashing Heavenly Sword when they claimed it was awesome. I understand that the team is being lead by a mouthy prick, but HS wasn't terrible, and Enslaved's was more of an improvement over HS in story Telling. Something the Team has been known for, which is why they were tapped for Development in the first place, their design philosophy on world building, story and character development and interaction are their strong points.

If you played the DmC demo, and then went back to a previous ninja theory game, you'll realize that their combat engine has received an overhaul and is leaps and bounds better than anything seen in their previous games. HS is no where near as responsive as this and both games run on a 30fps locked system.

The bitching about the sex scene is crap, its a 30 second cinematic of a guy with a rape face, who comes to a realization that his lesser demon was just killed, it isn't gruesome, filthy or left to imagination its just tongue in cheek and apart of the flow of story, unlike the Simpson's game which replicated the raunchy nature of Rockstar's GTA. And let's not forget God of War or Mass Effect, the Sims, or Dragon Age or Oblivion, which tack it in as some interactive gimmick feature which really does nothing. People bitch about this in DmC because they need another reason to hate the game because Capcom rebooted something which was barely surviving the test of time with its gameplay mechanics, (Check how well DMC4 was received by the diehards). What's more, if you are complaining because this has a sex scene, damn near everything in the female version of DMC (Bayonnetta) was a solo sex porn as the protagonist practically got naked the more extreme your combos form and that was a little much if you ask, and if I remember correctly, people bashed Bayonnetta as "Devil May Boobs" even though the Originator of the Devil May Cry series made The game, what even more funny is that people are now claiming Bayonnetta is some savior of the genre when its story wasn't even that great. Its game play is great but nothing to write home about.

Again, it just seems that the 3 year old controversy over the DmC reboot has gone on for too long and at this point if you hated the game since them you should be steering clear from articles and media here or in the web if you weren't gonna get it in the first place. If you tried the demo and it reaffirmed your views then honestly it should be a no brainer, don't buy the game, and leave your energy for something else instead of vehemently returning to spew the same 1 sentence to a paragraph you've been saying since 2010 as to why you hate the game. Its sounds like a laborious mother in pain, tired and completely uncalled for.

@rezzah This is the same Dante from a western point of story telling. You seemingly missed what i said. the original character designer interpreted what they perceived as to what a 'cool 'n cocky character is to western people. Stop crying your Dante is still here
Pozzle  +   644d ago
Actually this Dante is basically the complete opposite of what Hideki Kamiya originally wanted for the character. One of the reasons Dante was even created was because Kamiya was tired of there being so many whiny, angsty "tough guy" heroes in Japanese games. He wanted to create a character who was fun, who wasn't angsty, and who -most of all- didn't need to swear or smoke in order to be "cool". Which is why the new Dante pisses a lot of long-time fans off...not only is he completely different to the original Dante, but the creators have intentionally gone against what Kamiya originally wanted for the character. It's basically a spit in the creator's eye.

I get that what's cool in Japan is completely different top what's cool in the West. But to me, simply making a character swear and smoke doesn't make them "cool". Personally I think new-Dante is an unlikeable dick, tbh. At least old Dante is likeable, even if he is kinda goofy and silly at times.

I just saw the video and... that's... all?

By the title, I thought it would be the worst thing I ever saw. It was not pretty, but in a game featuring demons and monsters, do you really expect anything pretty? In fact, do you expect sex scenes to be pretty? Sex is never pretty. The foreplay may be, but sex is never pretty.

I think people are just trying to find anything to hate the game.
Hicken  +   645d ago
There are also angels, as evidenced by Dante's background, apparently.

Besides, at what point was it established that demons and monsters couldn't be pretty, or at least have a form they could use that was pretty? The rest of the world is full of sexy demons and monsters that can transform into something attractive- or start out that way- but in an unnecessary sex scene in this game, they choose THAT ugly thing?

And if you've never had sex you could say was pretty or beautiful, I fee sorry for you.

There are SO many things to hate about this game; this stupid little scene is like icing on a cake of disgust.

Edit: So, skipping over your response about the game because it's pretty silly. I mean, you're bringing all that crap up, but you didn't mention that in your original comment. My rebuttal was based on that: your expression that people shouldn't expect "anything pretty."

Anyway, to the point that bears responding to, you must be pretty limited if you think that appearance is all that counts when it comes to sex being pretty. The ONLY time a lot of things look pretty is during sex. A woman's strained neck muscles just look weird any other time, and are probably a sign of something being VERY wrong. During sex, however, it's one lovely sight.

I'll stop without getting into too many details, but even the more carnal, brutal sex can be quite beautiful. It's got nothing to do with traditional aesthetics.

Sex is just beautiful, generally.

In the end, I do feel sorry for you, after all.

Nerdmaster  +   645d ago
Really dude, those who think sex scenes in movies and games are there only to show love or to turn on the viewers, have a very limited view about storytelling. Did you even think that causing disgust is exactly what the developers wanted? Did you think that maybe they wanted to build that guy's character by showing the repulsive things he does? Somewhere I read that he used to be an angel, so maybe they wanted to show how far he has decayed. Do you think a villain can be made villain by simply killing innocent people? How many books did you ever read in your life?

And... lol! Don't feel sorry for me, feel sorry for yourself. I couldn't care less about having beautiful sex, I'm having sex, not watching a movie. If you have sex while worrying if it looks pretty or beautiful, you're not having sex, you're acting. And if you think it's beautiful to see a guy humping a woman, well... you're a little strange.

As I said, foreplay can be beautiful. The tender kisses, discovery of each other's bodies and whatnot. But when the sex starts, it's all about pleasure, not about making it look pretty.
Nerdmaster  +   644d ago
Of course you skipped over my response about the game. You know I'm right.

If you're so full of yourself saying "that was not in your original comment", in my original comment I was referring to sex scenes. You're the one who started this "but sex is always beautiful, it's like a flower blooming while the breeze gently sweeps its petals". You do know that we're talking about games and movies, right? Some things that you think are pretty during sex, just aren't pretty to watch in a TV. Specially if we're talking about sex between demons and monsters.

Geez, I can't believe I'm actually trying to convince someone why sex between demons in a game is meant to be ugly. As I said, go read some books to see that sex in storytelling has more uses than looking pretty and turning you on.

People mentioning God of War must have forgotten that the sex mini games are always optional in that series from the very first game. Also in God of War sex fits the character and the setting very well. Why is there sex in the new DmC? To tell a more mature story or for the sake of characterisation? Bollocks to that. Anyone who's watched that clip can agree that it was grotesque and unnecessary.

The Devil May Cry series was never big, Ninja Theory seem to be trying their hardest to make sure this game fails which will probably end the series altogether, the franchise isn't strong enough to continue after another dud like DMC2 was.

Dante's design in this game is far from the biggest problem with it. The story as a whole, a game that often dealt with Gothic locations, and evil cults is now suddenly a modern day setting about a rebel battling the government who is trying to control the world via debt and demon vomit turned soda, much like the Slurm episode of Futurama... What part of that story sounds like Devil May Cry?

The gameplay is far more brain dead then before as well, making jC's largely useless due to the fact that you CAN'T fall out of the air in combat, they got rid of jB's as a whole. And a inputs for counters, demon dodges and such give you a full, 30 frames to do them.

LOL I love how they think we simply cannot live without the game. If this series is to bomb then so be it. I'd rather see it die with at least some of its dignity intact then see this "train wreak in slow motion" take its place. There are other games out there that do a much better job like MGR.

Shouldnt the titles be renamed to Sex scene enrages haters??

People who hate the new game keep saying it's for immature and emo people. Well they are wrong. The people who hate this game are more immature and emo then the ones who actually like and wan't to play it. Immature because they just can't leave the game alone. A new video appears and you have over a hundred complaining comments and death threats. And they must be sensitive because if they find a little cursing,swearing and sex in a video game too disturbing.

You don't understand, it is how things are portrayed or done in such a way that does not reflect what made previous DMC games DMC.

If you look only for what your perception of "haters" are in this situations you will never get further than what you currently know.

Btw I don't say what you said in your first line, nor do I imply it.

Kiddie satanism.

I bet if there is no more DMC it's because of all the whining of the so called fans than the game selling poorly or any other reason. Why would Capcom bother with a series with so sensitive fans anymore?

Edit: And I have to add f**k those blogs hoping on the hate train just for hits too, you are not helping anyone...

he only thing thats different is the no targeting lock on.there r far more combos in the new one

I know all the reasons why this new DMC is hated, but I don't necessarily agree with all of them.

Also I have trust in Ninja Theory to make a good game, even though it might not be "Devil May Cry" anymore. Fact is series went stale with nr 4 and Capcom is trying something new with the series. Might not be to everyones taste, but I'll give it a chance.

This is why publisher and devs don't try new and daring stuff so often, because so called hardcore fans just want the same old game.
