Ninja Theory says screw you to Devil May Cry babies

Ninja Theory sticks two fingers up at the Devil May Cry fans who initially moaned about the leading character's looks - doing things their own way. Video contains minor spoilers so watch at own risk. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Just needs a free dlc original Dante costume.

I don't see that ever happening.

EDIT: That was great and made me want the game even more. Not because I like what they did,, but because it made me laugh and I want to get up to that part myself, on my own TV.

For the ones who don't know, this is Robert Cram's own "article". Who was the first guy to reveal the "demon sex scene" in DmC exclusively with a video (which got bashed hard). It seems his lower parts is a bit sore from all the rightful bashing and now he's trying too hard to prove that he was right all along.

Stay classy Robert.

What is with these games and the Possibility that the "Devil" may cry ?

I've never played these...they look boring after you do the same moves over and over and over again. Watched my friend play the first one and it looked like it would be fun for a bit.

"Ninja Theory says screw you to Devil May Cry babies"

See what I mean? Insult after insult from these people, I played the demo with an open mind because I wanted to like DmC I really did, even after all the smack talk from NT, but I just can't.

NT had their chance to impress me and failed miserably, they have no right to gloat like they've done something to be proud of, they may believe they have something special but DmC is in no way beyond scrutiny.

I wont be buying a game they develop ever again, I hate their attitude, their mistreatment of a once great well established franchise and their total disregard for the fans they upset and continue to insult, is appalling.
bunt-custardly  +   1125d ago
The video is an interpretation of their [NT] actions. I doubt they actually thought "screw you" although I could be wrong given all the hate towards the game.
DragonKnight  +   1125d ago
Considering how many references are in the game about the fans disliking it, and considering Tameem is arrogant enough to put his own twitter in the game (leaving aside that he directed, wrote, and cast the game himself), this is clearly a "f*ck you" to the fans.
Godchild1020  +   1125d ago
They didn't really say that, if you read the article and watch the video, you will see where the writer got that from.

I'm not saying go out and buy the game, but I am saying watch the video and read the article. I personally like Ninja Theory and the games they made. Their attitude can get on my nerves, but it's not like I have to hear it when playing the game.
colonel179  +   1125d ago
If that's in the game, then they are really mocking fans; and after the poor reception that the game, and specially the look of Dante has had, I think it's not a good idea to have that attitude.

First Ninja Theory blaming fans and Sony for not selling Heavenly Sword as expected (after all, how much were they expecting for a launch game?), then they go multiplatform and Enslaved still not sell well.

At least Heavenly Sword and Enslaved were good games and maybe even DMC will be a good game, but treating fans like that and making stupid comments it's what's going to get them in the end.

Just look at Platinum Games. People complained when they announced that they'd be developing MGR, but instead of making arrogant and stupid comments, they have proved with gameplay, videos and interviews that the game is good, or at least people will have fun.

@Colonel179, You are right they did go about the proving their interpretation of Dante will be just as good, even if he doesn't look like the original in the wrong manner or way. They should have made the reviews and the Gameplay talk for it's self, but they didn't. And so far the reviews have been in their favor and rating better than their first two games.

Platinum Games may have gone about showing they can handle making a Metal Gear game better than NT, but that doesn't mean everyone that works for Platinum Games was okay and level headed. Kamiya From Platinum Games has been in the headlines quite a bit. While it was never talking bad about the fans or the game he was working on, he did have a lot to say about other games and Kotaku.

But hearing what Kamiya had to say didn't turn me away from buy any of Platinum's games or any of the games he talked bad about.

The developers are British, they aren't bashful, they would've told everyone to fuck off, not screw you.
zerocrossing  +   1125d ago
Im British, it's no excuse for being a condescending asshole.

NT had 1 hit game thanks to the lackluster launch of the PS3, Enslaved was a mess and now they've ruined DmC.

You may like the game but it represents nothing that the franchise stood for, why reboot DMC just to rip its soul out and turn it into some generic hack n slash that's unchallenging and renders any need of skill moot?

They are acttually calling DmC a better game! It's utter madness...

Get your facts straight. Enslaved was very well recieved. It was one of those big silent hitters. Pretty much everyone liked it but marketing sucked on it.
DragonKnight  +   1125d ago
Enslaved was not a "sleeper hit" and it wasn't well received by gamers. If it was, it would have sold better on 2 platforms than Heavenly Sword did on 1 and people wouldn't talk smack about it every chance they could. Enslaved was a terrible game and even its head writer hated the concept of it.
VileAndVicious  +   1125d ago

To be fair bayonetta was a sleeper hit that sold poorly across two platforms. I think enslaved was decent it just had bad marketing.
Mykky  +   1125d ago
Try seeing it from their perspective also. They have been working for years making a great game for everyone to enjoy and not just those who played the earlier DMCs. Then all they get in return is whining and a lot of crap. It's not wierd they have had enough. Now they also have proof of the game beeing good.

A rule developer in at least writing use is: listen to fans but do not let them control you.

(I also see it from your perspective, I would be crying in my bed and raging over the whole internet if Zelda ever turned into something else than it originaly was.)
360ICE  +   1125d ago
I get that people are tired of them acting like dicks, even though I think it's funny, because I, like every reviewer on planet earth think this game is awesome.

What I don't get is they're being called sell-outs. They took an already popular franchise and turned it on its head, instead of making another copy. And they called all their fans whiny in the process. That's not what a sell-out would have done. A sell-out would have changed stuff to the fans's liking, re-used current art and not changed anything that works.

You know who would have turned everything on its head without caring what people said? Dante. Yup. That sounds an awful lot like what Dante would have done. And even more importantly, what Jesus would have done. He died for your sins, get with the program.

I don't mind that NT turned it on its head, its the fact the end result so laughably juvenile and pathetic.

This mess of a game bares the burden of being compared to the previous superior titles weather fans like it or not, anyone can tell you why the old games are superior from a technical perspective even down to the story.

Please explain to me what you like about the reboot? Outside of the fact that its "new" and "fresh" cause I heard all that and its entirely subjective.

I want a technical and performance evaluation comparing the old game and reboot, because that is where this game fails in comparison IMO.
fei-hung  +   1125d ago
I've made a decision to vote down every site from now that chooses give this broken game anything more than 7 out of 10.

I know some people will argue it is an opinion and you shouldn't such things, but IMHO, lying and being biased is shitty journalism. These are the very same people who had an uproar and gave lower scores to the likes of Ninja Gaiden since the latest edition was too "mainstream" compared to the old and Ryu taking of his mask was too much and pointless etc.

I wish anonymous could hack into Capcom and find evidence that these publishers have been paid to talk shit to ensure this game gets good reviews as the game cannot stand in its own feet.

Blues Cowboy  +   1125d ago
Hang on. If loads of sites (i.e. every site) and magazine is giving it a high score because it's a mechanically excellent game, doesn't the problem lie with your love for the franchise? How is DmC broken exactly?
fei-hung  +   1125d ago
*** Spoiler alert***

What a childish attitude to have to make an assumption that I base my opinion on a demo alone and absolutely nothing else!

No, not at all.

Is it a better story? Really? Well how is it a better story? Just because it follows NT's previous title Enslaved, about reality not being what it is and freeing the people from it, this does not make it a better story. The shitty dialogue does not mean better story telling. The ridiculous ending with Virgil jumping through a portal to escape does not make it a better story.

Dante digging 3/4s of his sword sword through Virgils heart but not killing him via this as its not fully through doesnt make good story telling.

Virgil choosing to rule mankind after everything they went through and taking down the evil Mundus just to go against it all at the end doesn't make good story telling.

A broken combo system does not make it better gameplay.

Button mashing does make the combat in depth.

Great platforming with broken mechanics does not mean better gameplay.

Making a game a lot easier does not mean it is more accessible, it just means you do not need to put much if any effort in to complete the game. I'm not an 8year old who has to have his hand held at every turn.

Dante's hair changing to the colour white as a reward for completing the game makes no sense whatsoever and is just as ridiculous as Virgil hoping through what looks like a Portal portal after getting his ass wooped far too easily.

Most importantly, journalists need to make their frigging minds up. Going by these reviews, they should have given Ninja Gaiden the same scores, but they didn't. They shat on Ninja Gaiden for the very reasons why they have praised this game. Just like DmC itself, the writing on the wall does not add up, hence why I will be down voting every site that chooses to talk shit.
N4GDgAPc  +   1125d ago
You don't make sense fei-hung. So you think Capcom went to every site and paid every single person off? Because there hasn't been a score lower than 7 yet. Get off your high horse and realize people actually like the game.
Pozzle  +   1125d ago
I gotta admit, I'm surprised by how high the scores have been for DmC. Granted, I don't think Capcom paid off the reviewers. That's just silly. But for a game that has so much controversy surrounding it and such a polarizing style, I'm surprised there haven't been at least a few reviewers who found the game "meh".
AdmiralSnake  +   1125d ago
You're an example of why I don't take some gamers reviews seriously remotely.

I can't wait to get on meta critic and laugh at kids like you who will give the game a 0 and not even play it. Oh what a joy that will be...

Clearly you're biased since you have to resort to such a stupid attitude....and it's hilarious to see how you try to validate hat behavior, awesome.

You all can dismiss what fei-hung says all you want but he's right about Ninja Gaiden 3. Every review about that game has the same problems with it that exist in DmC and yet DmC is getting a pass for that? Care to explain that?

I'm not saying all reviewers have been paid off. What I am saying is that it's entirely possible that some have been, it's also even more possible that there is another Eidos situation going on where the reviewers were told that they can only review the game early if they gave the game high scores to put on the box of the game. It's also possible that there are troll reviews going on just to spite people who don't like the game.

When you consider that every positive review of this game has allowed and praised aspects that have been slammed in other games, even of the same genre, how can you not have a raised eyebrow and ask wtf is going on?
bunt-custardly  +   1125d ago
@pozzle Adam S gave the game a 6/10
360ICE  +   1125d ago
Oh please, you've what, played the demo? Have you ever played DMC2? That is an actual mess of a game.

The entire point of the game is that Dante is juvenile. He's a kid in this game, and (SPOLER) the game leaves many strong indicators that he'll grow into a person very similar to the Dante we know from the other games.

What do I like? Cinematic, responsive gameplay. Great combosystem, that is much more accessible than in previous titles, yet with more or less the same depth.
Solid story, well mixed soundtrack and some decent platforming for a change. Is everything better? No. But it's a pretty damn good start on a new thing. Looking forward to the next one.

Btw, what I like about the reboot WOULD necessarily be subjective, as a product of the phrase "what I like".

The demo is a demonstration, it demonstrates the core mechanics of the game for goodness sake, what the hell is the point of releasing one if you just disregard it!

OK, the Cinematics are awful in DmC they are poorly done and the voice acting is laughable, responsive gameplay? Don't make me laugh! The game is choppy, full of glitches and feels just plain slow, Great combo system, yeah right, just because it's easy now to string a bunch of combos on some pitifully slow and stupid AI and get SSS does not make for great a combo system, it makes it accessible and renders the need of any genuine skill moot, Story is just a poor comic book version of the original... The music is entirely subjective but I find it inferior. Well the games coming from NT platformings like the only thing they do right.

You know DmC is the transformers of the gaming medium and NT is Michael bay, it's like no matter how god awful a movie he makes is, countless idiots still love them. That is pretty much my experience with NT and their fans also.

Pretty much every game that has come out is Glitchy in some way. Take a AAA title and type "title of game bugs" and u will see some crazy bugs. Not everyone has gone through the demo and actually came across the glitches u came across.

Its like Assassins Creed 3. I hear others how buggy it is but guess what? I didn't run into any bugs. Bethesda is the worst company to release games full of bugs. I don't see anyone not playing the games because of it.

"Not in a million years"

Um...maybe I'm interpreting that scene wrong, but was that a deliberate stab at the old games? Why would NT even want to do that? To piss people off? To piss Kamiya off? As a joke? I don't get it. It just seems really disrespectful not only to fans of the old games (i.e. potential customers) but also to the original developers (who have given you the chance to make the game in the first place).

You don't like old-Dante? That's fine. You don't think he's cool? Ok. Then make your own witty/cool/badass/etc Dante without the subtle jabs at the older Dante. More people might be willing to give the new game a chance if this bizarrely childish "lol the Devil May Cry games are lame and no real person would think old-Dante is cool" attitude hadn't been coming from Ninja Theory throughout DmC's development.

Adding a scene like this one just seems childish and kinda mean.

Pretty sure the plan was to get people to hate so that trolls would exclaim that it is the best game ever and then NT would make a mint. Regardless of perspective, this game is going to do very well thanks to all its hate and the people that are hating on the haters.

Very smart business move, dickish but smart.

Anyway, I won't be buying this simply because of the attitude of Dante, so annoying (super edgy motherfu**er). The swearing and childish dick loving is just annoying and pandering. It's a shame because it plays really well and is fun. If only Dante was silent throughout the game.

Anyway, the masses of hardcore edgy 13-17 year olds will lap this up because of the sex, excessive swearing & tomfoolery and the masses of haters might buy it just to hate on it and then the haters of the haters will also buy it.

Kudos NT, kudos.

palaeomerus  +   1125d ago
I think I'm going to skip this. I really don't need more new style or old style 'Devil May Cry'. Honestly I only really liked 1 and 3. 4 was okay I guess. Bayonetta was cool but I'm not sure I want the sequel on or off the Wii U. The semi-knock offs like Never Dead(devil May Cry done Gears of War style) and Shadows of the Damned have been disappointing. God of War 3 seemed like a good place to end that series and Dante's Inferno seems pretty finished. heavenyl Sword was too short and ended in a pretty final way. Asura was fun (so was From's Ninja Blade)but it was mostly lock on shooting and quick time events on a very simple fighting system and it ended itself pretty finally too. From's Otogi series was great back in the day. Ninja Gaiden went off the rails with 3 and 2 had serious problems. I might enjoy a new Castlevania Lords of Shadow title. Not sure though. And a new Darksiders might be welcome. Or maybe a new Legacy of Kane/Soul Reaver title? I rather like the extra dimension a Zelda 3d rip off brings to the action fighting genre.

I think the whole genre is nearly kaput though.
