i got DmC for free on PS+ and man i regret even downloading that piece of trash.

Avengingkinght921402d ago

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.

One_Eyed_Wizard1402d ago

How can you tell if you're going to hate it without playing it first?

MrSwankSinatra1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

You're the butthurt gamer crying about what the hell I do. Get over yourself crybaby

XisThatKid1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

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.

TheTwelve1402d ago

I didn't buy it either but I'm enjoying it via PS+

darren_poolies1402d ago

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.

InTheLab1402d ago

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.

godofboobees1402d ago

DMC is actually really good. Wtf are you talking about?

Highlife1401d ago (Edited 1401d ago )

No it's not,wtf are you talking about?

Fight fight fight fight

PaleMoonDeath1402d ago

Gameplay was incredible, the characters and plot.. unbelievably forgettable, played through the game just to kick some ass & grab a few trophies.

Devil18701401d ago

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.

Timesplitter141402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

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...

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1402d ago

That scene was amazing. I've never seen someone with a punch stronger than a shove.

DEATHxTHExKIDx1402d ago

sad to see DmC didnt do better.

KonsoruMasuta1402d ago

I'm glad to see that the sales were trash. There was no need for a reboot that completely ruined an established character.

DragonKnight1402d ago

You're sad to see a terrible game was received as a terrible game should be?

SlapHappyJesus1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

Many old school fans hated it. The general public saw it for the solid title that it was.

@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'.

DragonKnight1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

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?

darren_poolies1402d ago

@DragonKnight

Yeah because metacritic user scores are a great indicator of what the general public think about games. /s

SlapHappyJesus1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

@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.

DragonKnight1402d ago

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.

SlapHappyJesus1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

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.

^ 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.

darren_poolies1402d ago

The game wasn't even close to being terrible.

Ultimax1402d ago (Edited 1402d ago )

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 ?

Lord_Sloth1402d ago

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.

PaleMoonDeath1402d ago

Great gameplay, terrible everything else, totally worth the free download, not something I'd shed £40 on when it came out.

MilkMan1402d ago

Of course, DmC is off the hook.
