GameRanx - "Ninja Theory slipped in a little easter egg into its latest game, poking fun at Dante's white hair."
Everyone has been so upset about the Dante switch. I am 50 50 with the whole thing.
Since I am not the biggest fan and a big supporter of re-boots in general it doesn't bother me. It isn't a slap in the face to old fans (however NT's behaviour certantly is), it is just a new interpretation of the DMC franchise. I wasn't mad when the new Spider-man movie was a re-boot, or the new Batman movies. There is even a Spider-man comic where he is black (if I'm not mistaken). If people treat these things for what they are rather than how different it is from the source material, they would have a much better time with the game. Open your minds.
I'm glad I was never a fan of the old series. While I admit the new Dante looks dumb, if his new appearance doesn't retract the game from being good, I will get the game when its price drops (I have a huge backlog unfortunately)
The problem wasn't his hair after all... It's the ugly face
it's the overall design of the game, is just too serious. Old games were just goofy and cheesy while this is edgy, angsty and there's too much swearing in it. And not to mention how they ruined the battle system. It was like going from SFIV to a Smash Bros game. =/
@wishingW3L: I gotta admit, I'm surprised so many reviews have said they prefer new-Dante because he's "more relate-able" and "more realistic". Wasn't the point of the old-Dante that he was SUPPOSED to be outlandish, and over-the-top, and larger-than-life? I'm thinking some people may have missed the point of old-Dante, tbh.
You're a man of refined taste when it comes to how handsome other men are, eh? :P You want them rugged and handsome huh? Heh Heh Heh...
haha that was a funny easter egg. altough i prefer old dante.
lol! he lookw like Anthony Kiedis.
That was kinda funny, lol.
Still the same game, regardless of how Dante looks.
Heh, my comment was taken wrong I do believe. I'm not saying the "new Dante" is the same as the old games and that the gameplay is the same. I just mean that a new skin added to this game won't fix anything that is wrong with this "reboot."
Ice cold please for all the haters!!!! xD
This is why NT arnt getting my money....they just dont care about fans
Have money to troll instead of using it on something useful like a lock on.....
Why is NT so determined to piss off the original DMC fanbase, if this game isn't for them than who? They should know that Casuals wont buy this unless the abbreviations "COD" are on the cover. Honestly i would have been interested in playing DMC if the protagonist aka New Dante had more depth, i found past Dante to be a much more interesting character than New Dante who acts like a stupid teen and looks like a character from twilight.
So because it doesn't have COD on it i'm not going to buy it? I'm not buying it because I don't want to pay $60 for a game that will be short and have no replay value to me. If it was $40 I would buy it right away.
Are you saying you're a casual gamer? Because he said "they know Casuals wont buy this unless the abbreviations 'COD' are on the cover." Just curious.
@DragonKnight it depends on what you call a casual gamer.
still not funny
NT just giving the old fans the back hand with insult after insult.
(-.-) .. Ninja Theory, never mock classic dante again. one day you will laugh with guilt at your Twilight/Vampire/Dub-Step douche bag, wonder what his name is.. would be insane if they had the nerve to call him Dante.
This is great! HAHAHA!
not in a million years...lol good luck with that! xD
i want to see his how and what he thinks of his hair turning white
I am so sick of people bitching about this game from what I've seen and played it is better then what the original developers did, just because they change the way the main character looks makes it a bad game BS. for all you gamers who cry that game play makes a game and not graphics this shows that you only say that when you have no other arguing points, Cause if you were judging this game off game play it is simply better then the original. but just because Dante looks different and you call it garbage proves my point. and who could blame the developers for having a Easter egg that's basically saying fuck you to all you fans who bitched about the game, and even gave death threats to them just because they change the characters appearance. I would say fuck you too and get a life.
The combat system is simpler/easier made to make even "the worst gamers play as MLG pros". To you that's a better combat system? Prime example of the type of person who doesn't even know the crap that comes out if their own mouth. "The hair is different, you guys are just haters". No.
