Capcom U.K PR Manager Mr Leo Tan, speaks on Dante's Re-design for DLC and also states it is not a reboot, and he also give's his views on G.O.W Franchise ( PS3 Fanboy's beware)
Don't know why it says "PS3 Fanboys beware" when he says nothing at all against God of War. He just speaks the truth. God of War is a sick game that everyone can play. And I find it perfectly fair that it isn't his type of game. It's pretty much the same for me, except I loved Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden, but I hated Bayonetta. The gameplay was very technical, yes, but also very easy to pull a "God of War" to make it through the entire game. I personally didn't like the characters though, nor the story. Whereas God of War taking on the theme of Greek mythology fit much better with me. A skanky, sexed up girl, with terrible music and little to no story doesn't do it for me. Games are about a mixture of gameplay, story, and how well they immerse you with their visuals. Bayonetta had it's gameplay down for those who only cared for that, but God of War had everything sitting at an even, well-done level. Anyhow, I like what he said about the new DMC, since I'm also giving Ninja Theory the benefit of the doubt.
Based on NT's track record of heavenly sword and enslaved, aesthetics aside, they can't do a DMC type of fast/fluid combat game. They are what they are and they have their own style of animation and it just doesn't fit in with a fast/fluid/frenetic type of action I expect from a DMC title. Their controls and movements have been more than sluggish and unresponsive in their two titles and it's because of their mo-capped animation which I don't see them moving away from. Oh, and the BLOOOOOOOM!!!
The story was crapy in Bayonetta but the game is still great and cool. About DMC, the capcom guy is simplifying things, the problem is more than just the hair, its the scrawny body and the clothes and the face and the attitude and the look in his eyes. Respect the fans opinion capcom or this game will flop
@Firelogic, I agree 100%. If you liked Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden, why would you let Ninja Theory get anywhere near one of the flagship games of that hack-and-slash genre? This deal is like handing the NES Ninja Gaiden franchise to LJN. Maybe they'll pull through, but they'd really have to go beyond their normal output to make a great DMC game. Like "fire most of your creative staff and management, re-make Ninja Theory, then try to make DMC" beyond.
Thats what I didnt like about Bayonetta. The crappy dialouge, even worse voice acting. GoW made me feel, not like I was watching a movie, but like I was living a story. The voice acting, scripting, cutscenes were all top notch. They suck you in and immerse you. Zeus was MY dad, and I had to kill that bastard. Bayonetta just reminded me imediately that I was mearly playing a game. And a B-Grade sounding game at that. It might have had a great technical combat system. I wouldnt know, because it turned me off before I could get that far into it. It was like a great actor walking onto the set of Days of our Lives. I felt better things were around and I didnt want to be there. Now enough time has passed I should give it another go, maybe in six months when my GT fever subsides. Hopefully by then I wont hold it up to GoW's production values and I can enjoy it for what it is.
Capcom redesigned/rebooted to sell more copies. But action games don't usually sell that much. Ninja gaiden 2 sold around 1.5 mil. Bayo sold around 1 mil DMC4 sold around 3mil Except, GOW. GOW actually sells a lot for an action game. Over 3 million each game. And thats only on one console. And what combat system had NT done before? GOW style combat (Well, they tried, didn't really succed) It makes sense... business wise... to make DMC more like GOW. --- It happened with castlevania. and I have a bad feeling its gonna happen with DMC too.
Bayonetta fuck GOW3 & NG & DMC COMBINED every real gamer knows that .
Well, she is a whore. So technically, yes.
God Of War is unlike Bayonetta in that it's not supposed to be about a vast variety of layered combinations, what it's supposed to be about is an accessible, stress relieving spectacle; and it pulls that off like no other game has ever managed.
I am a real gamer and failoetta sucked hard. try harder.
What's the deal with bayonetta? isnt this about Gow and capcom? keep the theme up. GoW and Capcom. edit: Bayonetta has much more replay Value then GoW3 though. You guys havent played it Through the end. So many Characters and Secret Fights to Unlock. Very Skills based ACtion game aswell. Cant please everybody I guess. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Tell me that video aint Epic :D and he pulled a Pure platinum!
I like the way you think
You are right. but there is no way this game was epic not in my book.
Gameplay is better in Byonetta but everything GOW is better.
Well it depends on what you like really. I cant really talk for you because I'm more of a Japanese action Game type of guy then american. Games like GoW , Dante's inferno and DarkSiders who feature a much more american styled approach dint do anything special for me whereas Bayonetta , Ninja Gaiden 2 / Sigma 2 granted me alot of fun and challenge. depends on preferences really.
it's easy to put a "god of war" in bayonnetta s you play in easy or very easy mode . Sorry guys but god of war on "titan " and and bayonneta on hard/higher are NOT the same game...
Capcom needs to do less defending and less offending with their crappy redesigns and fire their EMO/Hipster Art directors.
Give me my original dante back and you have a sale if no then f*** off.
But it IS the original dante. Just younger. Watch the video. I know. It's scary. God forbid his hair wasn't always completely white.
In DMC3 Dante was supposed to be 18 years old and his hair was completelly white. Are you going to tell now this emo bitch is Dante 16 years old?
I would prefer a DMC done by a good developer, not NT
Tameem Antodies said he doesnt care about the fans reaction to DMC? Maybe he'll care when the game bombs.
Where did he say that i would like to give him a piece of my mind.
Heres the link http://bitmob.com/articles/...
"Tameen looked at me a moment and took a drag of his cigarette. Then without blinking, and without pausing to exhale the smoke from his mouth he said, “I don't care.” And neither should any other developer." Sorry, no matter how obnoxious you think that is... He is a pimp and haters gonna hate. If devs listened to reactionaries on the Internet all day we'd probably be stuck with lower variety and no experimental games.
"Sorry, no matter how obnoxious you think that is... He is a pimp and haters gonna hate. If devs listened to reactionaries on the Internet all day we'd probably be stuck with lower variety and no experimental games." It could be interpreted either as bold or ignorant, depending on how the game sells. But with Enslaves' performance, I doubt the game would produce GOW-esque numbers.
what an asshole biting the hand that feeds him, I wont buy any of his crap ugly games
Capcom can defend Dante's looks but can they defend Ninja Theory's history of poor software sales? We shall see.
Because to Capcom its DMC, meaning it will sell. But since its DMC we expect The old Dante, not this emo Hipster.
you people don't know anything about GOW, because it is for hardcore gamers that is why it is exclusive and it sells more than DMC. i no longer get capcom games because they are really messing up. i beat devil may cry on the hardest mode and it was easy. ninja gaiden is also for hardcore gamers, people like all you are the ones that don't no nothing about games. DMC5 dante look like a twilight character and it mabe have good gameplay but i rather wait for ninja gaiden 3 for PS3. So before you start talking about the greatest action game you should know everything about it.
GOW is more simplified. It's not as hard, and doesn't need as much precision(as evident by how easy it is to parry) Thats why it sells more. It's a great game, but DMC is more "hardcore"
God of War is hardcore? Granted, I haven't played the third one, but I found the first two a bit button-mashy. Or maybe I just played it wrong. I logged well over 100hours on DMC3, with a huge portion of time spent in the first chapter. It also made me cry multiple times in my first week of playing it. ... not sure how a game being exclusive and selling more makes it 'hardcore'. If anything, hardcore games don't get huge sales because they target the niche of players who are masochists. I'll agree on Ninja Gaiden though.
setting the correct difficulty right in Gow3 you will not stay alive very long with just mindless button mashing. Hell i thought the first level was the hardest part of Gow3 lol i had to redo it like 3 times.
I guess I'll have to get around to playing GoW3 then. =)
I wont, Capcom. I also have a dislike of the undeserving arrogance of NT. They are crap devs, but speak like they have pedigree. You just cant polish a turd, at best.. They could roll themselves in glitter
Lol @ Capcom thinking NT is going to "save the action genre" when they have yet to make one game with a decent combat system. Capcom and NT have contradicted themselves so much on this topic that I can't even take them seriously anymore. "It's a reboot..no wait it's a retelling of his origin story, but doesn't have anything to do with the previous DMCs...We redesigned him because he wasn't cool anymore...Oh when you're finished he's going to be the Dante we all know and love..."
for every good gme uall have done there have been a bad one too. lost planet 2 what the hell happend?(and than mad at fans for not buying come on) resident evil 6 needs a wake up call or maybe dead rising series is the new residant evil of horor games dead rising 2 took what 3 years to come out yet it was almost teh same as DR1 what you couldn't even figure out a story 72 hours let's do that for the 3rd one too DMC just need a little better story,gameplay was good AND PLEASE NO BACK TRACKING also how about a MEGAMAN X GAME IN HD
What's with all the unnecessary apostrophes?
Bayonetta fuck GOW3 & NG & DMC COMBINED every real gamer knows that
As far as combat goes, yes. I give the best story to GOW3 though. I think Kamiya knows how to make a complex fighting system fun. I love that about his games!
Best sto- please tell me that 3 you put at the end of "GOW" was an accident.
I'm sorry, but I love Bayonetta. The voice acting was intentionally cheesy. It was hilarious! The music was ridiculous too. That's what I love about it. Despite having the most complex and fun combo system out there, it rarely took itself seriously. However, God of War III is one of the best games ever made. Nothing has ever been that epic. It was a masterpiece. I trust Ninja Theory. I love their games.
i respect him for calling out button-mashing when he sees it. But this in turn sets the impression that the new DMC will be hard...so bring it.
ohhh GODDDDDDDDDDDDD no more crap of this game , F&$%^ CRAPCOM AND NINJA THEORY... THANK YOU FOR KILL OUR DANTE BUNCH OF MOTHER FUC%$^$^%$^
That's enough caffeine for you.
Capcom should give DMC to Platinum Games, Team Ninja, Konami, or Santa Monica Studios
because team ninja is GREAT at handling established franchises by larger companies... wait... (okay, I kinda liked Other M, but I couldn't resist)
Capcom should give DMC to Platinum Games. FIXED
Sorry, despite all the griping that goes on about GOW I don't see anything wrong with it. I played them and didn't give a damn that it didn't have some tacked on multi player or pointless mini games or anything just to justify it's length. I keep hearing the same thing over and over again about Bayonetta's replay value but the game really was not very good. It was at least two steps back from DMC. And I am not just talking story or dialogue. Even most of her moves were pointless actions that actually threw you in harms way rather then help you. I played all the GOW and DMC 1 and 3 several times. Bayonetta wasn't worth finishing or trying to get to the end.It never felt right or very interesting and it actually felt more mindless and pointless then DMC or GOW ever felt.People just can't see that despite all the flash Bayonetta had in the game it actually was more dull then you realised.GOW maybe more 'simple' as you put it but I was glad they didn't load Kratos down with hundreds of moves like they did in Prototype. When the enemy in the game is attacking you they don't have to remember which move is which while they rip into you.
i must be missing something. There's been something other than that two minute trailer from E3 and a bad haircut on Dante to justify all this hate for DmC, right?
If the game is good, I'll let Capcom's design... ahem, gaffes slip.
He doesn't like God of War? He's nuts. I didn't like the last DMC game myself. It was boring. Is that why they're doing this reboot? If they're smart they'd make it more like God of War.
So it's not a reboot but it's a prequel to the prequel...So does that mean there's no devil trigger involved? Because Dante started that in DMC3.... SO far, I don't think NT can handle a game of this speed. Story will probably be great, but the focus of DMC isn't story, it's combat.
Every real DMC fan should boycott this maybe capcom makes a proper DMC 5 with Vergil coop Dante online i wont buy this ugly b**** who calls herself Dante !!!
F**k this b***h - we want Dante damn it!
capcom defends all of their bad ideas
