'Killing Babies' in DmC Angers Some Gamers

AT writes: Warning, spoilers ahead - While some users continue to complain about various aspects of the game, there is a number of players who seem to be aggitated by the fact that one of the main characters in the game shoots a pregnant woman in the stomach and then kills her baby (both the woman and the baby are demons, by the way, but that doesn't seem count as a valid argument).

How does the people being demons not count as a valid argument?

WildArmed1351d ago

Exactly.
Didn't we kill babies in Dead Space too?
Dante's Inferno?

Those are two just off the top of my head.

mamotte1351d ago

Dead Space and Dante's Inferno. You, sir, stole my words.

Bimkoblerutso1351d ago

The point here is that it's okay to kill evil babies.

Ace_Pheonix1351d ago

It's also perfectly okay to kill unborn babies. And since this one is unborn, it's totally free game.

Snookies121351d ago

How does the fact that it's a GAME AND IN NO WAY REAL not count as a valid argument? Oh wait, it is valid...

Bigpappy1351d ago

In this post slaughtering of kids in the US, this can become inflammatory real fast. The NRA and politicians will be all over this like fat boys on burgers.

I don't understand the issue..?
Ir's a video game, it's not as if someones actually going to go out after playing the game and start swinging swords at babies heads.

It clearly says rated "M" for mature. For those who are Mature enough to realize it's just a game. I'm sure you'll find even worse things about babies in movies and books

Some people really need to take a long look at themselves, and their priorities, if any aspect of any fictional work actually offends them. Especially when they are warned about what's in the game on the box before they even play it.

Trish is a demon, does it mean she's evil? No she isn't so killing a demon baby is wrong no matter which way you look at it.

Your perspective of reality is so warped its un fucking believable... did you see what you typed.. You have sympathy for a fictional character... REALLY?!?!?!

WTF IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD THESE DAYS?!?!

DragonKnight1350d ago

Mario on the NES killed enemies that resembled snapping turtles. And they weren't doing anything but walking. Killing animals is wrong no matter which way you look at it. Let's get enraged and call Nintendo insensitive the way PETA did. /s

You don't kill "babies", YOU don't even kill the baby. And to top is off, you don't even SEE the UNBORN baby.

Im one of the old fans that got shafted here when it released, I expected to see loads of trolling reviews on metacritic.. to my surprize, there werent, There were genuine people stating why they hated it, that couldnt understand the praise is garnered from the big sites..
One the issues that came up continously (besides the 7hr campaign,non skippable cutscenes, no replayability)
Was the baby killing scene...
Wtf NT... just.. appauling.
Tameem said they werent making a game, but art akin to cinema..
My Lord, you're a sick man Tameem.

I want to disagree with your comment more but N4G won't let me

Almost everyone on Metacritic is a troll. That includes all the people who play a game for an hour (sometimes only the demo) and give it 10/10 and the people who give games like DMC between 0-3/10.

I've read those reviews just there and most of them just say the same old tired crap that you would find on an article on here, even before the demo was out.

Now I haven't played the game, and I don't intend to as I think it looks crap and I agree with the majority on Dante's stupid emo transformation, but I know from having played the demo and because I actually trust the collective opinion of reviewers that the game would not be less than a 5/10 for me.

And onto the baby killing, it's been done before and there's nothing wrong with it. It's a game and the babies are always monsters in some way.

Any gamer offended by killing demon babies needs to grow some balls, and if they are girls, lady balls.
