A rumored Nex-Gen port of 'DmC: Devil May Cry' has reignited old animosities gamers have had one year after the games original release.

Gamers will never forgive Capcom for 'DmC: Devil May Cry' and it appears the legacy of the reboot has become a third rail in the gaming world.

The game was actually pretty fun and it got about a 85 on the Metacritic scale. The user Metacritic was only 5.1 but I have to wonder, how many of those that reviewed it actually played the game?

I think this is where the problem lies when gamers feel entitled and get way too involved with the behind the scenes. We see it every day here on N4G how this company doesn't care about us, why this game is terrible, what is wrong with the industry. We've become complainers and whiners instead of just going into playing a game with an open mind. Maybe if we did that we'd get back to enjoying this hobby. Instead some seem to enjoy being critics, argumentative, and downright negative all day on the forums.

yeah all gamers do is whine and complain these days. yes sometimes they complain for good reasons like MS trying to con us with DRM or EA and they yearly microtranaction games with DLC but most of the other time gamers spend time complaining about a characters hair colour like they did with DmC.

it just makes me think all gamers like this and it just gives the people who actually have good complaints ignored because of some entitled keyboard warrior.
I agree the game was pretty fun... Too many people got twat hurt over this game and over- reacted just like they do today about the smallest of crap and it's not going to change because most people nowadays are self entitled asses. I liked how they showed how his hair was then turns into the white at the end, I liked the new attitude because the old one was corny as hell, etc etc. Face it games have been being downgraded and haven't had the same spark for awhile now but yet this game is like cancer in videogame form and it wasn't, it was a decent game. I remember seeing how many a$$holes on this site degrading others for liking it for any reason.

I love how people try to say if you like this game you're casual or a noob etc but the funny thing is all that's not even remotely true seeing how I ( others included) played, beat and loved all the originals when they first came out ( got em day 1 too) so how does that make me a noob or casual? How does that mean I helped pis so. The originals by buying this game?

What is fact is that people who jump on the bandwagon just because other morons do it are sheep plain and simple. People who attack others online especially for their preference are childish pu$$ies with no life. People who wish any game to fail is a child without a single mature trait about them. These are the people that have the most negative things to say about a decent game ( you can find some of them in this very thread) . Was the game everything I was hoping for? No. Was it downgraded like infamous:ss, gow ascension, KZ:SF, bf4 etc ? Yes ( I know not all are in he same genre but the point still stands) games for a long time now haven't had the same pop as the originals but hey that's life for ya!

I kind of feel bad for Ninjas Theory, they make fantastic games that dont sale. Heavenly sword was awesome, so was Enslaved. DMC I didn't play, I hear its good, but gosh damn that horrid Dante design. I hope the rumor is true about Heavenly Sword sequal, and I hope NT is working on it.
UltraNova  +   574d ago
I m not one to hold grudges but what they did to DMC was plain insulting... well then water under the bridge, well almost...

I would forgive them if the released a DMC collection complete with all 4 original games fully remastered in 1080p 60fps with trophy support and a full re-calibration of DMC to be more true to its roots a 'Fan Service' edition if you like at 1080p 60fps no less priced at 50 bucks max!

Now that will help heal some wounds Capcom!

Good I hope the fans really stick it to Scamcom&NT.You dont take an iconic game and proceed to dumb down it's game play just for a few extra bucks.I hope this game fails yet again.

If this port is real, it's going to be a very stupid idea.

I imagine that would go over much worse than simply porting DmC.

I liked DmC. I can certainly understand why some people liked the originals more. I liked the weapons, level design and combos more in DmC. I certainly don't think it warrants a next gen version though
Eddie20101  +   574d ago
DmC is a great game, I would guess that many that don't like is just because of the character change and because of that made it cool to hate the game. Also many probably didn't even play it to know if it was a good or bad game.

In my opinion the character change was good and the game was very good too.
DragonKnight  +   574d ago
You have literally no idea. The character change was just the catalyst, it is not the sole thing fans don't like.
elda  +   574d ago
I totally agree..after DMC-4 I was getting bored of it & DmC was like a fresh coat of paint.

First one barely sold and was awful. A port won't sell and will still be awful.
thejigisup  +   574d ago
Lots of new and young gamers that haven't played the originals to help with sales. Ntm the current library of games this gen could use a game this style, though I wish it was of a higher caliber.
ShadowWolf712  +   574d ago
Ultra dumbed down combos and scoring?

I mean, I played through a mission without ever blocking and even forgot to change weapons as needed a few times. Almost got killed. Got stuck at one point. Just a typical casual playthrough for the hey of it.

...I still got a B. Including for Style.

That's broken. lol

You could change the difficulty which made the game just as hard as the earlier games.

Summons, I find it immensely ironic how you can hate on this game and praise the FFXIII trilogy when both are guilty of the same crap.

Roccetarius  +   574d ago
It's pretty laughable, honestly, because it had no competition in January. They even released it earlier than intended, but it still sold poorly.

The DMC HD Collection sold better as well, further cementing the fact, that this was destined to fail.

that was pretty sad. maybe NT should have not made a DmC game and make a brand new IP instead. I actually like NT.

hopefully this port will show the difference between 30 &60fps. i heard from people playing the pc version that this makes a massive difference.
47  +   574d ago
There's a few prime examples as to why gamers and the games industry arent taken seriously and the baby, bratty b****ing that surrounded this game might of been the best example. Entitled brats decided months before this game even hit shelves that they were going to oppose it simply because it didn't fit their narrow minded vision of a franchise they felt they owned.

Hopefully Capcom abandons the series completely because the entitled brats who claimed to be real DMC fans don't deserve any follow up to DMC4.
Roccetarius  +   574d ago
Not to mention the gullible people, falling for every scam known to man by companies like Capcom. There's nothing entitled going on here, and that's something the corrupt ''Journalists'' ; started throwing around.

Companies make products for the consumer, when there is a clear idea of what the consumer doesn't want the developer should keep that in mind. narrow minded or not I enjoyed the game, however I enjoyed the originals much more. Non Canon? Maybe. Enjoyable? Yes. Comparable? No way.
DragonKnight  +   574d ago
Oh yeah, it's the height of entitlement to be upset that a franchise reboot is a complete downgrade on every level except for graphics, with probably the worst story in the franchise, and the worst characters.

Yeah, gamers aren't taken seriously because they know what they like and don't like and decided to take a stand against a poor, pitiful excuse of a game. Gamers, who if they came together more often in this fashion, would have prevented day one, on disc DLC, the continued increase on microtransaction reliance, and the other nickle and diming tactics of the gaming industry.

No, let's just let developers piss all over great franchises and say nothing because even though we are the ones paying them, it's our money funding all the projects, it would seem entitled to complain about things we don't like.

Guess we should have shut up and let Microsoft go ahead with their draconian DRM, online checks, and biorhythm scanning, forced spy device, sports and tv console right?
VileAndVicious  +   574d ago

Lol you know the story wasnt as bad as 4 or 2. Come on now lol.
Darkstares  +   573d ago
I guess all the great reviews for this game were paid advertisements then right?

"it's our money funding all the projects, it would seem entitled to complain about things we don't like."

It's called buyer beware and it applies to EVERY game out there. This game was also a reboot, meaning they can change things up if they wish to bring new fans in. They don't have to be tied down to a set formula just because of the name. A reboot allows them to go in new directions. Again, you're making it sound like this game was terrible, it was far from that. You just need to be open minded and not come into it with a bias and predetermined vision of what YOU think they should do with the ip.

"Guess we should have shut up and let Microsoft go ahead with their draconian DRM, online checks, and biorhythm scanning, forced spy device, sports and tv console right?"

Do you have nightmares of XBots too? You sure seem to want to vent any chance you get about Microsoft even when it doesn't apply to the topic at hand. The XB1 plays games just like the way games do on the PS4. You buy a disc or buy it online and away you go. So now what, you're still not going to buy one even though it doesn't have that draconian DRM, can be bought without Kinect and is just as much of a game console as the PS4? So what are your complaints about it now? Microsoft sure loves feedback from people like you even though no matter what they do you won't buy an Xbox. Keep moving those goal posts. You've gone from constructive criticism to being a critic just for the sake of being critical. Who exactly are you talking to at this point or do you just like to hear yourself?

SpiralTear  +   574d ago
It's because companies like Capcom like to milk these games for all they're worth. It's easier to drain money from folks by re-releasing slightly old games than it is to provide some form of upgrade program where you don't have to pay full price a second time.

It's a generation that ignorantly thinks that backwards compatibility, whether hardware-based or through a singular upgrade-based system, is obsolete.

KonsoruMasuta  +   574d ago
DMC4 was better than the reboot.
VileAndVicious  +   574d ago

I didn't think so. I can understand people enjoying DMC and DMC3 more than the reboot. The reboot was quite a bit different but I personally enjoyed it. Was it the best in the series? Probably not. But it definitely wasnt the worst. To me DMC2 and DMC4 will always hold that title. I think DMC4 was one of the laziest developed games ever. And I was so disappointed with all the back tracking and unanswered questions. Combat was mostly good though(even though it felt like it didn't change much from 3).

This game was an abomination that spit in the faces of every TRUE DMC fan . There is no bigger example of a gaming company stabbing it's fans in the back and disgracing themselves in the process. Capcom has never fully recovered from this blunder and they are now crumbling as a company. Serves them right.

I think tomb raider never really caught any slack because there were lots of noticeable upgrades in the re-release...

As for GTAV, I don't see a problem with that one because the game, even tho it was multiplat, released right before the new consoles shipped...

I personally know a handful of people that never bought it because every1 knew it would come to the PS4/X1 eventually...

DMC is the only Devil May Cry game I never finished. I hatted the Gameplay. I was a fan of 1-4. With 4 having a special place in my heart. But DMC was shit. I like Ninja Theory so this is not easy for me to say. Capcom wake the F*(k up before you lose all your fan base.
OtakuDome  +   574d ago
Are people really still butt hurt over a character redesign? Time to get over it folks. The fact of the matter is, when it comes down to it, DmC was a fine game and a nice reboot, which is something we don't get very often. Did Ninja Theory handle the game poorly from a PR perspective, making excuses left and right? Yes they did, but don't blame the game for "tarnishing" Devil May Cry's legacy.

I'm a huge DMC fan and have played every game in existence (yes including 2), and if anything DmC revitalized the franchise. Had Capcom continued internal development it would have suffered greatly, just look at Devil May Cry 4, good/ok game yes, great game? Not even close. If anything you should chastise Ninja Theory for their arrogance. DMC was their biggest IP since Heavenly Sword and they weren't afraid to let the world know it. So please let's distinguish bad PR from bad game development, people confusing the two is getting out of hand.

OT: I don't really have a problem with 6th gen HD remakes, but this PS3/360 HD port to PS4/XO thing is annoying and unnecessary for right now.

If you are a huge DMC fan then you should know it wasn't about the character redesign, and I don't think it revitalized the franchise seeing as it sold less than DMC 4, and while it is a good game, it's not a good DMC.
If Capcom wanted to attract new costumers they should've release it as a new IP.
elda  +   574d ago
I really enjoyed DmC it was a fresh coat of paint,knowing after 4 for me personally it was getting stale,but I feel Capcom should either just make a DmC-2 or make DMC-5 for the PS4/XBO we don't really need a remaster for DmC though it probably would look real pretty.

Why did Capcom change the way Dante looked? That was one of many blunders Capcom made in the past 15 years.
DivineHand125  +   574d ago
DmC is a reboot and the Dante from this is from before his demonic powers were fully awakened and at the end of the game his hair turned white like the original Dante.
ShadowWolf712  +   573d ago
Because the project head, Tameem, said Dante didn't look "Cool Enough" and "would be laughed at if he tried to get in a nightclub.

So he changed him to... look like himself. Not kidding.
