"Despite whatever misgivings you might have about everyone's favorite half-demon badass getting a scenester make-over and a plot reboot, Thumbfuckers think it is about damn time."
I hate the new Dante.
I love the new Dante and the old DMC3 Dante. new Dante reminds me of a badass Toby Kebbell aka Johnny Quid from Rocknrolla. Watch it and maybe your opinion will change.
I watched the trailer, and i hated it.
Haha, I know that's very nit-picky of me ... but it's really feminine. Im not a huge fan of the change, but some friends of mine seem to be interested in the game now and werent before for some reason ... so it must appeal to more people without the white hair. As much as I'll hate the new look, i'm still buying it.
"scenester"??? I'm not an editing Nazi, but sometimes...
I'm going to get myself an emo cut and blast My Chemical Romance while crying tears of hatred when playing this game. After slicing my wrists of course.
Here's to hoping the meth head is just a clone of Dante. Trying to clone the son of Sparda should explain Nero too having the blood of Sparda. Damnit, the they screwed up the story all over the place.
The new dante look like a shaved baby monkey
Kalowest... thats exactly my feeling.
Don't call it "DEVIL MAY CRY". It would solve this problem, RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW! -End statement
I think i can put up with him if the game doesnt suck
Wow, I'm laughing at how the majority of our society can't tell the difference between an emo look and a punk look. I firmly believe this is how Dante should look, or be, given what he has to go through and learn about himself. I highly doubt he was born wanting to be the son of a demon lord. Time to go into damage control mode, once again (for the mentally handicap of the interwebs). 1. He looks young. 2. His hair is black, yes, but his roots are white. It's not a flashy hairstyle, it's his roots growing back in. 3. He looks to be a trouble maker in this one, and NO (due to popular belief) Dante was not born knowing everything it is to know about being the Son of Sparta. He had to learn about his upbringing somewhere. DMC3 was a prequel, yes. But it absolutely failed to explain how Dante became Dante. It just started when he first had his shop up and running. Give this game a chance, and wait until we see the full game. Every single comedy starts (or has) with some sort of tragedy. Dante wasn't born cocky. He most likely got his ass kicked first.
I agree with most of what your saying. It would be great if this was a true sequel (though honestly id be happy with just a continuation of the already existing series) My first houghts on this trailer when I first saw it was dante during his tony red grave days. But I think the majority of people would agree this variation of dante looks and moves somewhat feminine. Also many are worried that this may have absolutely nothing to do with the previous DMC games which would suck. But your right. All we can do is wait and see.
I still don't want to be playing as a meth addicted character from Twilight.
As much as I don't in particular disagree with you, someone had to have said somewhere along the development line that this Dante bore a relative similarity to the Robert Pattinson portrayal of glitter-vampire Edward. Considering what I'd expect to be a pretty minimal fan overlap between Twilight and DMC, this seems like a mistake.
I absolutely agree with you, though many others might not. There's a BIG picture... Cant just look at him and not wonder what's the method to their madness. I'm sure everything's going to pull together really well and it'll be a solid game for all of us to enjoy.
I believe it will be a good game no doubt thats not the problem for most, it's the character change and the fact that they rebooted the series. The whole mistaking emo for punk thing though doesnt really hold up, all emo really did was steal it's look from punk/goth (funny thing is most people don't know DMC was a gothic game) but the hair cut looks like a MODERN day emo cut (unless you count bands like greenday and such as punk which no one should)
is Sparda you know , no Sparta
It just means he's never played DMC or is just here to troll.
How Dante became Dante? Dante and Vergil were trained by Sparda with his swordmastery when they were young. LDK died. Demons/Devils attacked Eva and her sons. Eva hid Dante in somewhere and Dante saw his mom die in the hands of demons. Vergil ran outside the house while getting attacked by demons while he was about to die Vergil awakened and slaughtered everybody. Dante hid as Tony Redgrave and worked as a mercenary... etc. The story is in the first novel or was it the manga. It also showed that no matter where Dante/Tony went he was constantly attacked by demons. They hate his family so much. DMC1 intro: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Dante was probably crying a lot since he was alone and he wasnt as powerful after the death of his mother and the disappearance of Vergil. In the anime, it showed the lady that took care of Dante when he was a kid. He was still young (around 10-12) he had full silver hair all ready. The whole town was killed and burned to the ground by demons looking for Dante. It's in DMC Anime episode 8 called "Once Upon a Time". "A man named Ernest insists that Dante is his childhood friend, Anthony, and that he and his mother used to live in his small town, before being banished by the townspeople, after a devil attacked, twenty years ago. Dante hesitantly plays along, but continues to deny the claim. " http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... (yeah, im a DMC fanboy)
Damn, it looks like somebody did their homework.
Two things people bash to make themselves feel "awesome": 1) Emo kids 2) Twilight This lets you do both! So, let the overcompensation begin!!!
Maybe people REALLY hate both emo kids and twilight. Have you thought about that posibility?
words of wisdom.
Thats y u like this Dante so much because ur an EMO too.This DMC 5 is pure shit.Emo and Twilight combined together to make an ultimate Gay game tat is DMC 5.
I'm an Emo too? Where are you getting this information? I have short hair, carpenter jeans, and a Seinfeld shirt on. I've never been particularly sad either. I'd love to chat at you sometime. I like various genres of music, surfing, and eating at TGI Fridays. ^_^ You, sir, are an idiot.
People bash emo kids because the majority of them are whiny crybabies who act like they have it so bad in life, when in reality, they have it a 1000x better than most people out there. These whiny little emo kids b*tch about not being able to find true love (when they're only F'ng 16 years old) or having a boyfriend/girlfriend, or complain about their parents being too controlling and not letting them smoke/drink/cut themselves/do something else that's bad for them, etc. These people b*tch and whine, wish they were dead, as if their lives are so damn bad. Frankly, it's annoying, and I'm sick and tired of hearing it. Their complaints are incredibly insulting and are a slap in the face to those that actually DO have it bad, like the people that live in poverty, the people that live in third world countries, people that have actually lost loved ones or have seen someone close to them self destruct on drugs/alcohol. And what's worse, is that these people think those reasons I stated earlier (relationship problems, caring parents)are enough justification to kill themselves, and actually go through with it, leaving their families to suffer. This emo trend is F'ng sickening and is encouraging suicides and crybaby attention seeking. For the very small percentage of emos that DO actually have reasons to be sad, I sympathize, truly I do, but it's no reason to take up some crappy little fashion trend and give up on life completely. That's why I personally hate Emos (the majority of them anyways). As for Twilight? Lol.
That was amazing. And accuratly portrays my exact feelings abot emos. Bubs up
Nicely put, Bubbles +
You know this emo-fad is something you teenage brats came up with a few years ago, right? ..kids these days
Stop videotaping yourself crying in a broken mirror, give you sister her pants back, and tell your mom what really happened to her New Moon dvd.
I dont see this often but its weird when guys wear girl jeans.
1) I have a fauxhawk. 2) You guys are really proving my point well. 3) I'm not defending this new look. I'm just appaulled by the lack of self-awareness you people have. 4) Grow up. An "Emo" is a kid who is emotional. Judging from the responses I got, I assume that describes the majority of you. A kid who wears skinny jeans, grows his hair out, and goes to concerts is called either a "hipster" or "scene kid". You have to social knowledge of a 90's Jr. High female. I've never worn skinny jeans in my life and I don't think the Twilight movies are that good. You guys are just completely hopeless and I wanted to point out to you that you would respond with hopeless comments. You're predictable and immature. Edit: Disagree all you want. When Casablanca came out, guys bashed it to each other all the time to feel "cool". It's a vicious cycle...and you're all feeding the monster.
1) there is a difference between scene and emo kids. and just because Emo stands for emotional doesnt mean that it does not have a appearance style. Scene= causing a scene were ever you go. which could be anyone who is just loud and annoying, yet they have their own get-up. 2)So having long hair and going to concerts makes you a hipster or scene kid? my hair is almost down to my waist and i go to concerts all the time. Does that make me one of them ? No. 3)more than emos/hipsters/scene kids wear skinny jeans (skaters,Old metalheads,people that just like them, etc. 4)"social knowledge of a 90's Jr. High female. " So now youre a sexist ? 5)There are plenty of scene kids that have a Fauxhawk.
I have a feeling that the the lack of Yuji Shimomura is going to hurt this game. The action in the game trailer was decent however the swordplay and everything was rather basic. But yeah, this is a punk look. Not an emo.
Personally didnt like the way he used his guns. Seemed like his arms were just waving around. Compared to Dante (the real one) who shows power, true skills with an uncomparable style when he fights.
I liked two things about the trailer, the music was cool, and the second the action looked sweet. If they made Dante look like... Dante... It'd be pretty much perfect. Question to DMC fans : Did you like the trailer (ignoring "new" Dante)? Or was there something about the action and story you didn't like?
Well as a DMC fan I somewhat liked the gameplay as it didn't look to far off what DMC games have been, what I didn't like though is it seems like Dante isn't the same person (and im not talking about looks) and i just have a gut feeling that they could end up screwing with the story making it feel like it's not a true DMC game.
I cant seem to like this person because this ugly thing pretends to be one of my fav. Heroes DANTEEE!!!
Yeah, he's not Dante then it's a instant reject all ready. Just like Nero for me. "Your wimpy, crybaby man-b*tch excuses do NOT interest me. Hike up your skirt and man the f*ck up." - Dante to Nero
again i hated more than just the look of dante in the trailer . Had it been a new ip , i'm not sure i would be interested much , i just wouldnt be moaning and complaining about it . The action was dull , slow , not intense despite many camera tricks , i didnt recognize anything DMC in it . to feel like DMC you need more than turning the camera around like a Michael Bay on heroine (if he isnt already on it , or crack) I know it might not right to decide to believe so without a proper gameplay trailer (their own fault anyway) but it did felt like something that would be precisely using their combat engine from Heavenly sword and Enslaved . Wich i dont like much from dmc , as it lacks any depth , and is much more button mashing oriented
You bring up a very good point that I think a lot of people here also missed which was the action was slow. Even though it was over the top it just was not done at the same pace as previous DMC. Also the camera did most of the job at making it look slightly "cool"
Another thing really annoying is ... it was a freaking cgi (ingames or not i dont care) ... with very little chance of the gameplay being even as good looking . Or did somehow a new trend started with action looking better ingame than in cutscenes ? I do not believe so .
Everyone wants to stand out from the crowd and not join a trend yet they're a part of one themselves @Hero The action looked slow and the "guy" wasn't pulling off the moves with ease. I really don't feel like typing an essay on this, but not one thing in that trailer made me feel like this was a Devil May Cry game(not just character design).
i didn't like the new dante the old one is more badass and i don't like the sword look too!
i didn't like the new dante, the old one is more badass, and i don't like the sword look too!
I failed to see anything impressive about the trailer. note:- I give up this game not because of his new design but the fact that this game now being developed by a western developer. go and take a look at silent hill games. and how they ruined it forever.
so whats the difference thats not dante either heck dante was an enemy
Ugh, i hate how he looks like a total fruit cake. Seriously tired of the Twilight look for everything
If the gameplay is nowhere near this, then DMC fails. Keep in mind this is a somewhat weak combo video I've seen from Brea.
Omg thats Dante playing DMC 4
I need some of those drugs.
A cancer like you need chemo, not drugs..
you been stalking my comments eh. lol, guess you're the real cancer.
Nah, I checked your comment history to see if maybe I rushed judgment on you. Turns out I was right on the money..
to the point you bothered to make a useless comment. wait, why am I even wasting my time on you. Sorry.
Don't apologize, you're out of bubbles. Not much of a choice is it..
I wasn't really impressed with the trailer, and it also gave a few cues to how the gameplay would be fleshed out which has me concerned. Weapon Morphing - Ninja Theory thought they were geniuses when they made Heavenly Sword include a morphing weapon. This is a cop out when each iteration of the weapon adds no value to the battle system. Hmm.. should I mash square while holding L1, or mash while holding R1. It never mattered. Ranged, Mid, Close Combat styles - When the sword turns into a whip, not only is it reminicent of Heavenly Sword, Dantes Inferno, and the new Castlevania, it makes me wonder if Ninja Theory are bringing the Heavenly sword battle system over to DmC in an attempt to trick players into thinking the system is deep. Look Ninja Theory fans, there is no denying that Ninja Theory can create a deep story with imersive atmosphere, but they don't know gameplay. Fast paced, deep action games require more than just the mashing of 1 or 2 buttons it requires strategy variation against intellegent attack patterns all within a STEADY FRAME RATE. Ninja Theory have proven they can't do it thus far, and I am concerned that they won't be able to do it for one of my most beloved franchises.
with so many hack and slash already focusing on storytelling and epic factor ... i really dread the idea of DMC being turned into just another one of them . When there is mostly (oldschool) dmc , ninja gaiden and bayonetta to care more about the depth of their fighting mechanics than plot , pacing and not being over the top . I mean what's the point ? And i'm sorry but that's all i see happening with "heavenly enslaved dante" . They wont suddenly learn to pull away and do dmc right
I couldn't agree more.
I am in no position to give any proper critique on 'DmC' since it isn't even out yet but, from what I see thus far causes me cringe painfully. Dante looked perfectly fine before. He was our favorite whilte/silver haired, clad in red, demon badass, the icon of the Devil May Cry series! We were practically attached to OUR Dante, we grew with him throughout the series and to see him BUTCHERED like this?... I am DEEPLY ashamed of Capcom (Not so much Ninja Theory since they fail anyways). Now, I understand that this is a 'Reboot' of sorts and that the purpose is to re-make the and alter things but, what they did was basically remove everything that made 'Devil May Cry', DEVIL MAY CRY. First of all, by 'rebooting' the DMC series basically means they are taking years worth of gameplay, storylines, characters/character development, everything and altering it but still keeping tidbits of the original composition here and there since its still a part of the DMC franchise - and yet, that's not the case here, no… as far as I'm concerned they only have copyright to the name. On a little more positive note the graphics (excluding the 'Dante' wannabe) seem decent and, the gameplay/action looks pretty cool but, that's besides the point. The point is that Capcom and Ninja Theory are too caught up in trying to become mainstream, trying too hard (or little) to get their product to sell on the market rather than how we, the devoted fans, would react to such drastic changes in such a brief time, and without much notice. Generally, the DMC was a pretty successful series, maybe not well known as 'Halo', 'Final Fantasy', 'COD', or any of the more mainstream games but, it was still quite popular. Also, what irks me the most is that they are taking a strongly Japanese oriented RPG and 'westernizing' it to appeal JRPG to gamers from the other side of the world by taking out major JRPG aspects which then renders it to a mere RPG?… Er… Am I missing something here?… What am I expecting from DMC5? Crapload of hacking and slashing/button mashing, little or slow character devolvement, short storyline (Bayonetta - Great game, but short storyline-wise), ridiculously easy or difficult levels, ect. Its fuckin' ridiculous. Overall, I agree with you.
this is for the person that post this shit 8====D..fuck you, and fuck you Capcom and Ninja Theory
the disagree here is gay too, lol like Dante
So does this mean anyone can start a blog and post on N4G? I guess I should start doing that.
Gamers bitched so much that Sucker Punch changed back to old Cole, now they think it works everytime...LOL! Honestly, I hope Capcom stands by their decision and won't listen to the moaning community this time. Play through the game, then you can bitch if you didn't like it.
Completely different situation. If you're not a big fan of the series then you really don't have the right tell us what we should or shouldn't say.
yeah let's be stupid enough , buy/rent/get used copies/pirate it and fund the new changes we dont like enough , so they'd stick forever ... Get real for a second , you obviously dont seems to care wich is fine , but surely you could try imagining the same treatment or worse for a franchise you like .
