The main complaint that everyone seems to be focusing on is the change to Dante's character design. Well it is shocking at first, but it makes total sense, especially when you consider the direction that the developers are taking the series.
this dude looks like justin bieber's dark side this isn't no Dante or devil may cry for that matter...
Every time I see the image, I picture his face in place of Edward's on those twilight posters. http://www.popartuk.com/g/l...
LMAO Fans Will Cry
real? if by real you mean real gay, then yes. the new dante is lame as hell. boycott this crap.
Just for some lol's http://imgur.com/CjyiZ.jpg http://fc03.deviantart.net/...
Even Dante,Nero and Vergil Doesnt Approved this http://img835.imageshack.us...
i actually agree with the article.. nobody knows the full story details for this game yet.. but it seems likely it was his teen years.. so it make sense to make him look younger and change a few things.. do you think everyone has one colour of hair their whole life? lol no.. if thats the story they are going with then it makes sense to make the character look different.. you cant say you'd be happy with "ok so heres the new DMC.. the new storylines about dantes younger years, but we've used the dante from previous games.. because you know.. it doesnt make sense and its what the fans want" lol.. ok the characters different, but if you're a fan your still going to get what seems like a great dmc game unlike the last game -_- look how many times they changed snake and even used and are using a completely different character in metal gear solid.. <still great games with great storylines
They have no Idea what to do with you... They say the series needs a reboot, and your games got stale, so first they made too much of you (Nero) now ...uhmm none of you. think I'll wait for Ninja Gaiden to come out (maybe he will take the mask off and still be a man at least)
Why reboot a series that you never finished explaining in the first place?? DMC was fine the way it was just needed a few tweaks to the story and combat. It didnt need tweaks to Dante!! I just dont get it...WTH was capcom thinking turning one of their most iconic game creations into.....this? Hideki Kamiya is probably so disappointed.
a reboot doesnt mean the whole storyline has been scrapped(although i guess it could) it can simply mean taking it a different route to get the franchise back on track.. and why not start with his younger years? and yeah because when raiden was the main character in metal gear solid.. it ruined the franchise and made a bad game.. when they made snake old and gave him grey hair.. GREY HAIR god dammit, it ruined the franchise.. so naive
Sure most people didnt really care for the original Raiden or playing as him. But the game was still Metal Gear, it still fit with the universe. Castlevania Lords of Shadow is a reboot and it looks nice but it doesnt stray to far away from the whole look and feel of the castlevania universe. Its roots if you will. But the problem that I have with the new DMC is that it doesnt even appear to be a Devil May Cry game. This is not the original game Kamiya had visioned. And what he had envisioned was what had made the entire franchise so popular and thats why (at least IMO) every DMC after the first has been slightly worse than the original. Think of your favorite movie franchise then imagine someone else directing it, the results will always be mixed. But to me this new DMC just seems... so unnecessary. Devil May Cry didnt need a reboot. Its not as if the last had horrible sales or whatever. So AlmostPro say what you will, but the response to the new DMC has been widely negative. Its not just me. I mean come on Capcom fucked up with this one. But there is still time for Capcom and ninja Theory to salvage this. And I imagine that we will see a redesigned Dante for DMC5 in the near future. Just like with Infamous 2 and Cole Macgrath.
i think they will still make a real dmc 5 game[maybe dmc 5] but this is probably just an experiment.
You'll realize it once you read it. He pretends to know something about the series yet comes out completely clueless.
I read your comment and thought, "Oh, he's just being an asshole." I went and read it and you were right. This guy basically said he likes what we seem to hate. That's it.
@rememberthe357 and whats so wrong with somebody liking it? because you dont nobody else can? wtf lol
Well, really, there's no need to read past the first line: "I love Devil May Cry, though the only game I played in the series religiously was Devil May Cry 3" So, in other words, you're NOT a DMC fan, you only played the one game. That's like other people who are commenting on the new trailer saying: "Oh, I was never a fan of DMC, I think this looks really good." If you're not a fan you have no idea how betrayed we feel and you have no right to support the reboot.
dude if i could bubble you i would..could i just hug you as one DMC fan to another?
He said it was the only one he played religiously. That means alot. Doesn't necessarily mean it was the ONLY one he played. I would take that more as stating it was his favorite in the series, which makes sense because many people really liked that one.
On the upside I have a feeling that Ninja Theory will make a game that is extremely well paced and fun to play - with a great storyline and cast of characters. On the downside DMC was great because of its fast action hack/slash gameplay mixed with stylish combos and larger-than-life weapons. This new direction seems to be eliminating that idea - which means they're removing the DMC from Devil May Cry...
DMC is not GOW. DMC is great it was difficult. DMC2 and DMC4 were cake walk. Looks like they're trying to make DMC like GOW with it's casual gameplay which is more appealing to a broader audience just like Nero's gameplay. The main appeal for DMC for me was if i messed up, i die.
Go figure. Thanks IGN :\
Ninja Theory is starting to annoy me. And everyone by now knows that this new Dante design looks just like the head designer. How narcissistic do you have to be to design the main character after yourself and your emo ways?
Agreed, sad thing is if capcom doesn't tell them to change it they most likely won't because everyone has been saying very bad things about the new look and if it's based off the lead designer he is going to take offense and say the hell with everyone because he knows it'll still sell on name alone.
Can't spell ignorance without IGN
As long as they don't try exploring his character. Cause Other M showed us that that is stupid. /sarcasm
"His emaciated body and unstable mannerisms displayed in the trailer hint at a character unversed in his demonic powers." -Or he's a meth head. "He's powerful, over-the-top and he's a total badass." -Heavy Metal Dante = Badass. Emo Dante =/= Badass. "This could inform us that DMC will feature a more complex combat system where players can string together huge combos with tons of different weapons." -Like every other DMC? Wow, this article is exhibit-a as to why IGN sucks.
It sounds like they never played any DMC games.
Old Dante/DMC3 Dante= badass New Dante= lame ass emo wannabe IGN really loves to make my blood boil. I never give them hits. Capcom can set themselves on fire along with the designer for the new Dante. Anyone who loves the new look is not a real fan of the series. This will never be DMC in my eyes even if Ninja Theory got the game right. This is simply and abomination in my eyes. I don't care about the console war, but when it comes to franchises that I love getting massacred I won't just sit down quietly.
and these comments are an exhibit as to why gamers like you are hipocrits lol i bet your the type to diss COD for "being the same crap each time" yet your in here hating the reboot wishing it was the same? lol.. that or your just being naive, plenty of games have made character changes and still been successful & mainly great games.. yet your crying over the looks of a male character.. and you guys call the new dante 'emo' & 'queer'(not saying you stated thios one specifically) ? lol
All they really need to do is give him a different hair style and put some more meat on his bones and everyone will be content.
All they need to do is: -Change his look -Change his attitude -Change his lame moves -Change his retarded weapon -GET RID OF NINJA THEORY
I loved DMC4 But it didnt get the recognition it deserved! because they kept the story line top secret, so game critics and reviewers rated it down like **** whiny childern!! DMC4 was awesome but felt like the begining of something greater!it was already the perfect reboot they should have continued the same way it was amazing. 4 is in my top games ever simply for the game play and story/voice acting! but I cannot accept DMC4 being the last ever game!! YOU Ba**ards you killed the real dante and I will NEVER forgive you! BRING OLD DANTE BACK!!
earbus works for ign, he just got butthurt that no one liked his lame ass article.
umm this dude looks like Rhianna
Ask any fan of the series. Majority would be pissed. 1- Reboot 2- Outsorced 3- Changed Dante. Only people who had no intest in the game preiously would actually think this is a somewhat good idea.
Speaking as one not outraged but merely a little bemused by the different character direction, I'd not have minded some change to the formula of the series. As far as character design goes, even if this was for an original project... it just looks kind of dumb. Not to beat the obvious commentary to death, but the scrawny/pretty boy/badass combination seems weak and begs for a terribly unlikeable character by presence alone. I suppose it might be better than the pillars of masculinity badassery, but not by much.
But I'm give it a Shot... it might be way more 2 it... than I'm realizing...
Lord have mercy, please listen to the fans and not these dumbass "video game journalists" Capcom..........
some demon ate dante and shat out this thing
It would be kind of ironic if the game turns out to be bloody awesome apart from the emo hipster character design.
He is to young, and to thin,..and smokes like a homo,.. that is it Maybe they expanded on his personality ,..made him Punk-rock and added some psychological depth to the character,.. It is not like original Dante isn't a cocky, 1-dimensional, metrosexual and arrogant bastard.. Hell,.. even God Hand's Gene guy is more relatable,..(God Hand is awesome bdw,..so fu IGN) We just don't know yet ,.. And those people who are making twilight comparisons ,.. WTF is wrong with you,.. YOU WATCHED TWILIGHT,.. WHO GAY NOW,.. BIATCH?
The trailer, action and concept is great but the style of the new Dante is just realy freaking gay
