New Devil May Cry will teach casuals the "magic" of pro gaming, entry bar "is very low"

Capcom and Ninja Theory feel DmC: Devil May Cry will sate the brutality lust of series fans, while teaching newcomers a few of the high level techniques otherwise confined to certain terrifying Youtube videos.

Looking forward to playing through the game to see how it holds up to the previous games.

AsimLeonheart1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Well, we already know how it holds up to previous games but I guess you need to spend $60 bucks to confirm what every original DMC has been saying since this abomination was revealed at TGS 2010. This game is dumbed down, broken, casualized, bastardized and westernized crap. DMC has always been about deep/complex gameplay and challenging enemies. CAPCOM is really desperate to sell this game and that this why they are spewing all these ridiculous lies and using their "media to brainwash us." LOL!

MikeMyers1967d ago

And here we go again, someone is excited about the game only to be shot down in flames by those who want the game to fail for their own reasons. It's not enough they don't want to get the game, they have to make sure nobody else wants it too.

Sevir1967d ago

Homie, Have several seats. Why the fuck do you care, its not your $64.57 That's being spent?

I swear the Bitchy Fans Here on this community are among the worst, 3 Years and numerous changes since its initial trailer and you still Bitch. Stay away from the game and play something else.

Blacktric1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

"Homie, Have several seats."

Being this edgy.

"Why the fuck do you care, its not your $64.57 That's being spent? "

Thinking it's about his crappy money and not another iconic franchise going under to serve the casual try hard cool and edgy tards....

"I swear the Bitchy Fans Here on this community are among the worst"

Definitely not bitching about others "bitching" at every opportunity he gets.

"Stay away from the game and play something else."

Being this arrogant on top of all that ignorance...

This is nothing but pathetic at best.

AsimLeonheart1967d ago

@ Sevir

We original fans care because of these people we will not be getting a proper and genuine DMC game. We are still "bitching" because nothing has improved since the original trailer except Donte's appearance. I am talking about GAMEPLAY, MECHANICS and CHALLENGE. These are quintessential elements of a DMC game and DmC lacks all of these. The ranking system is broken, enemies are dumb, boss fights are flat, gamplay has been severely dumbed down and button layout is stupid. Do you even care about what makes a DMC game? Or are you in it only for the "Fxxx YOU!!!" scenes?

@mikemeyers i'm looking forward to the next just dance game. I CANT FREAKING WAIT. this next one is going to have DANCING! HEEYYY Macarana!

MikeMyers1967d ago

Awesome! I heard the Wii U version will support this:

It's about time I brought them out of the crawlspace. Let me know if you want to play co-op.

Sevir1966d ago

Again what is it to any of you if I'm excited for a game that none of you care for, and attacking me and calling me ignorant, its funny.

And this other thing of calling yourselves original fans of the franchise as if it has anything to do with the matter of me buying and enjoying the game. None of you whinny gamers know my gaming history, so please don't try to disenfranchise someone because they don't share your opinion.

Trust me when I say, I don't give 2 fucks about your reasons for hating the game and ill never go out of my way to attack anyone over their opinions. So let's try to be mature here and respect my difference in opinion with you all. If you can't then as I said in my previous comment, "Have Several Fuckin Seats"

**Resumes Playing PSABR**

"New Devil May Cry will teach casuals the "magic" of pro gaming, entry bar "is very low""


Are they even trying anymore?

A very low bar to "pro" gaming - IN NOT FREAKIN PRO GAMING!!!

PR quotes this gaming gen - especially from Capcom - have been nothing but utter nonsensical, contridictive crap!

WeAreLegion1967d ago

Hell or Hell mode:

All enemies are just as hard as they would be in Dante Must Die mode. Dante dies in one hit.

Sounds pretty "pro" to me...

WildArmed1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Hell or Hell mode was in DMC4 thou. Not sure how that differentiate the new dmc from the past ones.

Neo Nugget1967d ago

That's been in there since at least DMC 3.

ritsuka6661967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Hell or Hell mode:

The normal mode of old DMC is more hard than this new modes. lol

IAmLee1967d ago

edit *Pro to *Unfair.

rjdofu1967d ago

Not so "pro" when they give you a huge invincible frame while dodging, infinite air judging & freaking brokenly cheap demon dodge.

He was talking about new player to the series that the entry bar is low,if the series was selling well for capcom they wouldn't had to change it,so deal with it,i played dmc 3 and 4 and they didn't impress me,actully this version really caught my attention

Blacktric1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

"if the series was selling well for capcom they wouldn't had to change it"

The reception to the reboot, on the day of its announcement, was more than enough to change their mind regarding the direction or even the whole idea of rebooting the franchise. And sales were more than enough for a niche series like Devil May Cry. Stop trying to defend Crapcom and their sh*t practices. You are talking about the company that cancelled Mega Man Legends 3 because there wasn't enough "interest" in their DevRoom bullsh*t, which literally asked gamers to "make" the game.

"i played dmc 3 and 4 and they didn't impress me"

In other words; "I have horrible taste in literally everything and those two great games weren't edgy enough for me but as soon as I saw the reboot, I immediately fell in love with its horrible They Live ripoff writing that already falls short along with its mediocre gameplay features and piss easy difficulty."

Your kind is the sole reason that 7th console generation sucked.

Being this ignorant...

SilentNegotiator1967d ago

"if the series was selling well for capcom they wouldn't had to change it,so deal with it"

DMC4 sold 2 million.

Do they think changing the character and making it easier will score them Halo numbers?

TheBlackSmoke1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Yeah 2 million across 3 platforms over a 5 year period.

Funny how there's so "many" people against the new dmc but it seems like a lot of you never even bought dmc4 in the first place.

The series got stale PERIOD. DMC4 is just a good combat engine stuck inside a completely mediocre game.

Whiny entitled posers. For people who have no interest in the game, you sure show a lot of it.

See ya on day one.

edit: desperate? says the guy who sits on n4g refreshing for dmc articles all day long so he can tell us his story over and over and over again about how he has no interest in a game.

And you did nothing to actually refute what I said. 2 million across 3 platforms over 5 years is still a FACT unlike your day one unjustified whiny bias.

Its by no means a bad number, but for a franchise that is supposedly huge its way below expectation. face it DMC4 was just average at best, if it was a roaring critical and financial success wouldn't capcom just of copy and pasted dmc5 ASAP ? oh wait, no but capcom cant do anything right? so nevermind.

Cant wait for the next "big" franchise that "everyone" "loves" LOL. bunch of bandwagoners. Your'e like the 10 year olds who say "wwe attitude era beatz the shit out of PG!!" even though they were born after it.

Baka-akaB1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Nice and desperate try .

DmC 4 not only was released eons later on PC , but with hardly any high expectations .

By the way DMC4 did 1 million on ps3 and 900 000 on 360 during the FIRST 3 MONTHS of it's shelf life .

It's downright pathetic that the only way to defend the new game , is by trying to dismiss any previous achievements .

If you wanna play that little game , NT is the one looking weak here (not even a million on enslaved on 2 platforms ? )

Anyway you can twisthowever you want , sales were good , only behind the allmighty god of war series , and Capcom never even hinted at any issues with projected numbers and real sales figures .

They just obviously want more . But then again i know your only rebutal " Whiners , see you on day one!"

HarryMasonHerpderp1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )


DMC4 was not a great game.
The only good DMC games have been the original game (one of the best games ever made) and the third game DMC3 (better combat).
DMC2 & 4 sucked though.

Pozzle1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Sure, DMC4 wasn't a great game and it certainly wasn't the best in the series, but to say that the game (or the series as a whole) didn't sell well is just laughable. The series has sold over 10 million copies worldwide. Those at the sorts of numbers that many devs only dream of.

Chucky20031967d ago

Fuck me,so many pissed about my opinion,wow get a life,i didn't know i have to think like all of you

Gohadouken1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Stop playing the victim , some of the comment were even a replay to blacksmoke instead of you . You have the right to your opinions , so do others . It's a comment section it's there for that .

You dont have to think like anyone

casual gamers are really hurting games

Godmars2901967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

No the industry's response to the concept of casual gaming is. "Casual gamer" itself is non-existent. An excuse for devs to lower standards and expectations in the hope such will generate sales.

Space Invaders and Donkey Kong were casual games!

Zha1tan1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

pro gaming related to single player?

sorry wut?

I hate these recent elitist tryhard kids who have infected SP gaming with this "it has to be hard as possible or its not worth playing" elitist view.

Gohadouken1967d ago (Edited 1967d ago )

Vastly exagerated . You know very well it's about people feeling , rightfully or not , that the franchise is loosing its core values and essence . Not (all) people saying "noobs should stfu and stay out of it"

DMC 1-4 could be actually easy enough via some glitchs and exploits or the already existing easy modes , but it was known for having a wealth and depth of challenging stuff , in the game's mission AND the fighting mechanics .

Some of us feel that in DMC everything is there for new blood , indeed , but not a lot for vétérans .

Finally people dont stay beginners all their lives , some would have tried the game on harder mode , why prevent them from experiencing the original challenge from the get go and by design with a apparently watered down version ?

More choices and option are taken away imo than added here

prototypeknuckles1967d ago

can thes "journalist" please just shut up with these BS stories from capcom, and NT and just let the game come out these guys are apart of whats so annoying about this game.

Treian1967d ago

Capcom-ruining all of its franchises....

Hanso1967d ago
