not hating not hating......

can anybody guess where this song was used for?

OmegaSlayer1926d ago

Stopped reading at this point: "Try dressing like the original Dante and walking into a bar. They would laugh your ass right out the door. He doesn’t fit in today’s world. " because he shows that he has been brainwashed by Capcom/Ninja Theory PR speeches.

Ninja Theory didn't understood Dante's spirit...people would have laughed at Dante's look even in 2001.
Dante would have facepalmed, laughed and offered people a beer.

The game will probably be good but still not DmC.
The lack of lock button transforms the game from stylish to brawler, for example

clovis2121926d ago

DMC 1 had no lock on and you're not complaining about that. It's a new Dante with a new spirit. It's fine if you don't like it. But don't judge a game you haven't even spent time with yet.

OmegaSlayer1926d ago

I complain' because of what I've seen and what I've played.
Also, I'm a gamer first, I'm not boycotting the game, I pre-ordered it, will play the s**t out of it and most probably enjoy it because it is clearly a good game.
But being a good game and being a good Devil May Cry are different concepts.

For the majority of the franchise fans it lacks something. It lacks the spirit.

It's just like RE6, I played all the games but I'm not a die-hard fan, so I enjoyed and had fun with both RE5 and RE6 (RE5 more than 6 actually) but I see why the fans complain about, what they feel lacking.

So, having just played the past Devil May Cry is not "enough" to be a die-hard fan, you're just a fan, so you can accept some changes.
A die-hard Devil May Cry fan poured at least 40-50 hours on DMC3 to master the combos, to find ways to innovate combos, to play the game flawlessly at Dante Must Die without taking a single hit.
Me and the other people who played and loved the game for this aspect won't surely find what we would have expected from a Devil May Cry title, that we found in Bayonetta for example.

Gamehard1926d ago

@clovis212, obviously you never played DMC1 if you don't recall it having a lock on. It didn't have a visual effect showing which target you were locked on, but holding R1 locked onto the nearest enemy. And everyone has had an opportunity to spend time with DmC with the lackluster demo by now.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1926d ago

I skimmed through it and read near the end that basically this guy thinks looks are the issue. Is it just me or is every fan of this game suffering from reading comprehension issues? The looks are stupid, but the ISSUE is the actually gameplay not being up to standard for Devil May Cry. Standalone game, it's fine. As a Devil May Cry game, it's not fine at all.

NovusTerminus1926d ago

Journalists are the fans of DmC has always boiled it down to "Get over the hair"

We keep saying whats wrong with it, but they never seem to listen. Most previews open up like "Dante looks different, but it's still DMC!" When in fact it's not.

As you said, if it was a new I.P it would be fine, but it doesn't stand up to DMC's standards.

cferretrun1926d ago

I think a lot of this focus on looks come from the overwhelming swell of fans still calling the new Dante different things like Donte. Going so far as to change the name of the character in your argument shows your dislike for the design, feel, and attitude of the character and that's what I think a lot of these articles are honing in on.

Unfortunately, the credibility of an argument nose-dives when the delivery of that argument is rife with petty name changes of the character, the title, and the developers. These writers see it, and that's what they focus on.

Baka-akaB1926d ago

The bulk of it is that they have no real arguments against everything negative pointed out about the gameplay and the game itself ... they their ostrich stance is to just repeat "get over the hair" or "it's a reboot!!!"

clovis2121926d ago

And who are you to say what the standard for a Devil May Cry game needs to be? Did you work on it? No, you didn't. But NT and the creators of DMC at Capcom worked really closely on this. So I'll trust their standard.

DragonKnight1926d ago

Are you kidding? Look, take your NT/Capcom "I love being ignored and having franchises ruined" attitude somewhere else. Who are we to say what the standard is? Just the people who f*cking paid for each game with our money and know what we like and what we don't like that's who. Without OUR money, Devil May Cry wouldn't have gone past the very first game. Without the standards we've come to expect and enjoy, we wouldn't have spent our money on consecutive titles. So yeah, we DO get to say what the standards are and what they are not. Don't like it? Tough.

Godmars2901926d ago

How about just accepting that some old DMC fans just don't want to give this new DmC a chance?

As bad as such may sound, its a frank statement.

zerocrossing1926d ago

I'm willing to go with that.

It's not because of blind hatred either, it's because I find everything Iv read, seen and played regarding DmC off putting, Id be a fool to purchase a game I genuinely dislike this much.

j-blaze1926d ago

i can't believe how stupid those so called Journalists can be sometimes!

on side note: remember when that arrogant head of NT said that he doesn't CARE about fans or if this game sells a thousand?
here some of his tweets lately:

pathetic isn't he?

matrixman921926d ago

"I keep hearing people call the new Dante, “Emo Dante”. Every time someone calls him that, they lower the IQ of the entire planet, so please stop."

This is quite possibly one of the dumbest sentences I have ever read. And I do not even care about Devil May cry at all, new or old.

Mocat1926d ago

"And I do not even care about Devil May cry at all, new or old."

then why comment?

matrixman921926d ago

because the whole thing is hillarious

Hicken1925d ago

Even if your opinion is that you don't care one way or the other, you still have the right to voice that opinion.

On topic, it's sad that people are STILL debating why people aren't giving this game a chance. I'm not the hugest fan of DMC, but I can definitely see why fans would be upset. ESPECIALLY when franchise fans have disrespected openly by the developers.

Decent game, it may be, but I don't think I'll be supporting it with a new purchase.

Mocat1926d ago

So you're just a troll trying to make things worse

matrixman921926d ago

dont know how im making things worse...but ok
