Capcom’s older games such as Resident Evil 5 and DmC Devil May Cry are continuing to sell.
i got DmC for free on PS+ and man i regret even downloading that piece of trash.
If you hated it from the start then why did you even bother downloading it in the first place. I swear butt hurt people like you give gamers a bad name.
How can you tell if you're going to hate it without playing it first?
You're the butthurt gamer crying about what the hell I do. Get over yourself crybaby
Prolly another butt-hurt Dante Man-crush fanboy. Anyway, OF course they are still selling becaus what everyone thinks everyone else is thinking and worried about other peoples opinions than enjoying their damn games. They are both solid and enjoyable games. My only problem with DmC was 30fps THAT in my opinion should have been like its predecessors but didn't ruin it for me.
I didn't buy it either but I'm enjoying it via PS+
You kidding? DmC was one of the best games to come out last year. You may not have liked the direction they took with the reboot but it is nowhere near being a "piece of trash" or a terrible game.
Of Ninja Theory's three games, it's probably the worst. With that said, it's not a bad game, only one no one wanted.
DMC is actually really good. Wtf are you talking about?
No it's not,wtf are you talking about? Fight fight fight fight
Gameplay was incredible, the characters and plot.. unbelievably forgettable, played through the game just to kick some ass & grab a few trophies.
i bought it on steam when it was 75% off. i still regret buying it.
But...is RE6 selling? If it's predecessor is selling better, there's something wrong.
Honestly, RE5 may have looked more like a next-gen Contra than a resident evil game, but I had a BLAST playing it in co-op. And I thoroughly enjoyed the cheesiness of it : http://www.youtube.com/watc...
That scene was amazing. I've never seen someone with a punch stronger than a shove.
sad to see DmC didnt do better.
I'm glad to see that the sales were trash. There was no need for a reboot that completely ruined an established character.
You're sad to see a terrible game was received as a terrible game should be?
Many old school fans hated it. The general public saw it for the solid title that it was. http://www.metacritic.com/g... @DragonKnight And if you check those reviews, the vast majority are said outspoken fans of the original series giving the game between a '0' and a '3' because they didn't like the new take on the brand or what they did in terms of the mechanics. Let's please not treat the user review section of Metacritic as anything more than the outspoken internet idiot platform that it is almost purely used for. Believe it or not, I trust the opinion of all major review sites involved over the vitriol laden rantings of 'fatal_slash' and 'kennedyballyhoo'.
User score 4.9 and terrible sales tend to debunk your "The general public saw it for the good game that it was" statement. @above edit: How do you know the vast majority are said outspoken fans? You have no way of proving that. And you blindly trust random review sites that are paid via advertisement dollars instead of actual people? Disregarding all of that, the sales numbers don't lie. The general public didn't buy the game. Why? Because it's terrible and they knew it, so your point is still debunked. How many of the older Devil May Cry games could you do this with? http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@DragonKnight Yeah because metacritic user scores are a great indicator of what the general public think about games. /s
@DragonKnight I know because they state as much in how they compare the game to the originals. That and some simply state so. Not to mention a lot sure seem to be written from a place of bias. And I never said I blindly trust review sites. I said I still trust their opinion over the drudge that is the metacritic comment section. Also, to claim that I can't trust gaming sites is to say that every review should be expected to be paid for. I guess that is a great way to look at things when you are trying to make a point and need something to back it. With that, I certainly trust sites like Giant Bomb, whose formation literally goes back to the creator being unwilling to write a paid review and being fired from Gamespot because of it. I'm done arguing non-points though. It's a waste of time. As for the video, sorry, but finding an exploit in what is essentially still the tutorial, in a very much constricted space in comparison to the majority of the game does not a terrible game make.
For the last time, disregarding the reviews since you don't want to include the ones that prove you wrong, the game's sales tanked. Why is that? Because the game sucks and the majority public that you're so fond of speaking for proved it by not supporting a terrible game. Fin.
Actually, DragonKnight, the series has always been driven on the previous players themselves. When the oldschool fans didn't appreciate the game, no one did . . . outside of every professional reviewer who reviewed the game, it seems. Nice to see you think so highly of yourself that all of them are wrong and you are right though. If I am avoiding the reviews that prove me wrong, you are avoiding the ones that prove me right. Then again, I am not hopping on the backs of others to prove me right, as you are. I am just using them as reassurance. If a highly rated game on Metacritic doesn't do well, that's not the fault of the game, despite your lofty attempts at making it seem so. Great games often go unrewarded, but that doesn't make them bad games. You can take your straw man arguments elsewhere, if you wish. They aren't sufficient either way. Being that that is my last bubble, that is obviously my last public statement on the matter. You can continue to post easily disputed non-sense that I would easily shoot down otherwise.
http://www.youtube.com/watc... ^ Yea lemme tell you how terrible the gameplay above is. Yes, let's hate the only hack and slash game of 2013 that had tons of color in EVERY level, wasn't afraid to say NO to quick time events, with the most freedom and skill required to create cool looking combos, yea **** that game, let's stick with the ones that have brown colors, quick time events, and more cutscenes and set pieces than typical gameplay while also having less content.
Being sad at a terrible game selling terribly sounds terrible to me.
The game wasn't even close to being terrible.
You can only predict one thing from comments like this = Xbot That's the only and only reason for a person who never lived the PS2 experience in the old days and wish for a complete trash game to sell better than the original one's How the F could anyone prefer the new "Donte" over the original one , The reason why you can find salty assholes down vote comments that despise this game are the reason why Capcom will never evolve "FOR BETTER" Desperate much ?
I am forever proud to be a member of the DMC1-4 fanbase for sticking to their guns when they said they wouldn't support it.
Great gameplay, terrible everything else, totally worth the free download, not something I'd shed £40 on when it came out.
What about DMC4? Im still playing that game.
Of course, DmC is off the hook.
I was so disappointed in DmC. Prefer the originals
If DMC had gone by any other name, it would have done better. Fantastic game. Capcom needs to realize that we want a proper DMC5. Do they have a team talented enough to do it though?
Eyup. It's only a "bad game" in people's eyes because they didn't like what was done with the reboot. It would have been praised as a solid new IP and likened to the series itself otherwise.
https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... Those two reviews pretty much sum up DmC in a nutshell. It's simply not a well made DMC game, and Capcom shat on their fan base when they outsourced development to NT. The reboot pretty much did nothing to build upon previous games, and they even made well liked mechanics completely broken and useless.
Fair enough. But you, like many, fail to acknowledge the difference between what could be considered a bad Devil May Cry game and a bad game in general. A reboot can be many things. They did things differently; some arguably worse than previous installments. That doesn't make it a bad game just because it doesn't live up to the expectations fans may have coming off of the previous games.
Wish DmC did better, by far my favourite DMC game. But then again DMC is a sub par series, DMC 3 is a fantastic game, however.
The first DMC game is my favourite but the new one isn't far behind.
Well, resident evil 5 was pretty good. I dont think it sucked you into the world as well as resident evil 4 did, but they refined it pretty well... Not counting that quick inventory nightmare.
Capcom , STFU and start making DMC 5
Both were ok games but..
After finishing DmC it felt so underwhelming,wasn't near as intense and exciting like the original DMCs. I think RE5 was ok as another 3PS not a RE title
DMC was ok, DMC2 was crap, DMC3 was good, DMC4 was fantastic, the one i spent most hours on is DMC4
DMC 3 actually did the most in terms of evolving the franchise. DMC 4 Dante's combat is superb, even though it's lacking in moves.
DMC3 is the best for me. I prefer playing Dante because i am not fan of Nero and DMC4 backtracking.
Everything Ninja Theory touches turns to shit, i wonder what will happen to mobile games if they plan to develop some since mobile games are shit by default..
DMC problems like mentioned before was that it was under the Devil May Cry name because the game had some very talented artists behind it in both artwork and in music. The combat was solid in addition with some pretty unique platforming. It's story had potential with a very good pace unfolding, However, the missing lock on was a problem especially when flying enemies were involved and character development went out the window with the protagonist, which made him feel way too immature. Then everything else that tried to resemble previous titles like the style system and weapon designs have been pretty much gutted. What really makes me angry is both fanbases for the game which either ranged from people claiming he game is trash which it is far from being and the "professional" reviewers who gave this game marks way too high in order to drum up hits (Some even said new Dante was the best character for that year which is laughable at best.) This game deserves a 7 or may be even an 8 because of the obvious effort they put behind it but they should have have waited a year or two to teach Ninja Theory MT Framework with assistance from better writers and Itsuno for the combat.
I had some fond memories of RE5. Beating Wesker on my very last shot after investing all my inventory in grenade launcher ammo. Unlocking the infinite rocket launcher this past Christmas. And unlocking my first ever Platinum trophy.
