I think 60fps and 1080p should be the standard for most remasters else there wouldn't be really any point buying the games again, not too much to ask is it.

Tzuno936d ago

You want 60 fps with a AMD cpu, hard for 50% of the games.

WESKER2015936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

I don't want to pay 40 quid just for 1080p, i couldn't care about resolution or frame-rate on new gen new ip's, but when they are games we have already played and spent money on i expect a better experience than previously and that would be the holy grail of 1080p 60fps, i can excuse RE1 HD because it's such an old game and the port to new gen was most likely difficult, but most of these new new remasters, they should be 60fps at least, no discussion, no point in buying the game again if it's not an improvement, unless you have never played the game last generation.

agree + bubble for cool avatar ->old RE human wesker

Wesker are you talking about remasterdd IPs in general, or about the definitive edition? Because definitive edition is what I expect most remastered IPs to be like. If your talking about the definitive edition, i'll pass along the changelog because they did alot for the port.

spacedelete936d ago

i don't know why devs keep messing these remasters so mu much. why do most remasters only have one game in the series ? there should be a DMC collection with all 5 games or at the very least should have bundled DMC 4 and DmC in on collection. if it was a 5 game collection it would have been day one but as it is i'll just wait until its free on PlayStation plus.

WESKER2015936d ago

They call it "filler" my friend, there really isn't much going on at the moment in regards to games on new gen consoles i have never seen bigger gaps between game releases than this gen, devs are running out of ideas so they use past games as filler, don't let anybody tell you different ok ;)

Roccetarius936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

Well, what has been true for some time now, is that the releases have been reduced with each generation. Now they're just re-releasing old games to make it look less bad.

wheresmymonkey936d ago

there's tons to play on new gen machines. Digitally at least. retail on the other hand is rather slim pickings atm.

tlougotg936d ago (Edited 936d ago )

Not filler at all, its more like quick cash grabs. I bet the amount of time and money they spend to remaster these games are way less than if they start a game from scratch and they are still selling them for 60 a pop. So you tell me who wouldn't jump on the opportunity to sell a game full price they put less time and money in?

Styferion....

lol i agree.

MasterCornholio936d ago

I would prefer a remastered collection of the old Devil May Cry games than this.

Oh well.

Roccetarius936d ago

They did release the collection of the first 3 games previously, but the remaster wasn't exactly amazing when put under a loop. I'm not sure if Capcom would even be bothered with updating textures and such for this generation.

styferion936d ago

it's like capcom and SE are competing on who can make the most remastered games..

'''DmC' fans will rejoice knowing their fast and furious action the series is known for, is now going to be fully realized in full 60fps, giving more fluid action and a much more pleasing result.''

Wow, that sentence is all over the place. First off, 'their' fast and furious action? DmC wasn't nearly as fast and furious as DMC3 and DMC4.
Second, the 'series' you're referring to is DMC. DmC is part of the Devil May Cry *franchise*, not part of the DMC series -- that's why it's called DmC instead of DMC and why it's a reboot. Though thankfully, the 'reboot' part seems smashed now, since Itsuno said he wanted to make DMC5 and might develop a new DMC if DmC bombed financially, which it did. It only sold 1.1 million in the deadline, instead of the expected 2 million). That, and DmC was made for a large, general western audience and was expected to sell near 5 million copies because it was westernized, simplified, and heavily marketed. Sure, the sales were 'solid', but come on, 1.1 million is about half what DMC1 sold (which was a 2001 game that wasn't even multiplatform).

''Devil May Cry has always been about pushing the limits''
Except DmC wasn't. It was restrictive, had 30 fps, and had about half the amount of combos DMC4 did. Even many combos seemed slower than DMC3's and DMC4's. Gameplay included boring platforming, broken boss fights that revolve around you circling them and wailing on them with overpowered weapons, S ranks being thrown at you, restrictive gameplay of 'hit the blue guy with the blue weapon'... I could go on and on. And then there was its dialogues and story... terrible.
It wasn't a great Devil May Cry, it was just mediocre -- even in terms of story and dialogue. Heck, even the level design was a bit monochromatic for my tastes, but that's a story for another time. Don't get me wrong, I had some fun with it, but if DMC3 was worth a 9/10, DmC would be a 6.5/10. I can't believe some media outlets when they rate it 8/10s and 9/10s... have they even played DMC3 and DMC4, or even *any* better H&S game? Are they just praising a game they see as 'the underdog'? I'll never know.

Anyway, I'll be waiting for DMC4: SE. It's probably going to have nice gameplay. It's not a new DMC, but at least it looks like it could be a nice Special Edition.

"Except DmC wasn't. It was restrictive, had 30 fps, and had about half the amount of combos DMC4 did."

How was it restrictive? It gave more freedom than the mentioned games. The 30FPS is now 60FPS, and it actually played very well for a H&S game at 30FPS. Also, I think your confusing "combos" and "moves" it probably has less moves. But it definitely has more combos. It was similar for DMC4, it had alot of moves from DMC3 but that little bit more freedom in gameplay, 3 weapons and style switching, made a big impact.

"Even many combos seemed slower than DMC3's and DMC4's. Gameplay included boring platforming, broken boss fights that revolve around you circling them and wailing on them with overpowered weapons, S ranks being thrown at you, restrictive gameplay of 'hit the blue guy with the blue weapon'... I could go on and on. And then there was its dialogues and story... terrible. "

Combos may seem slower because of 30FPS, that'd been rectified. Bosses have been changed, platforming is better than older DMC games(my opinion), S ranks were patched and are being further tweaked, colored enemies were removed. The dialogue and story, aside from maybe DMC, has always been bad.

"Anyway, I'll be waiting for DMC4: SE. It's probably going to have nice gameplay. It's not a new DMC, but at least it looks like it could be a nice Special Edition."

We know nothing about DMC4:SE other than Vergil is in. Did you actually just want to bash DmC that bad? You talked about nothing but the regular game and nothing on the definitive edition. The DE fixes alot of the issues you had and yet you bash the regular game, but DMC4:SE as far as we know only adds Vergil and it's looking nice?

''Devil May Cry has always been about pushing the limits''

Oh, and this quote is talking about the franchise in general, not just DmC. I have no idea how you got just one game out of that.

Clogmaster936d ago

The combat animations were quite terrible. The game felt a bit too gamey. Not sure how explain that.

Either way, it was a good attempt, but a step back nonetheless.

It would have been better if Ninja Theory wasn't involved at all in the animations and combat. But their story sucked too, so I don't even know what purpose they would serve in the development.

RazMaTaz0121935d ago

1) DmC is a restrictive game compared to previous DMC titles aka DMC3 and DMC4 as an example. The simplest fact that you cant even do two some time in DmC is just a joke in its own right.

2) DmC at 30FPS felt very clunky, and the amount of denial Ninja Theory went through saying now theyll make it 'feel' 60FPS and how lock on is not required shows how amateur they are in this genre.

Reality of the matter is, after DmC, people began to appreciate DMC4 alot more towards .
