Tweaks !!!
they need to go back to the original design and stop trying to piss fans off.

I personally think gamers are spoiled these days. People should be more worried about how the game plays/looks rather than what color Dante's hair is.

This is not about gameplay dude, this about someone ruining one of your most favorite franchise ever. I don't know if you can see it but this game's called Devil May Cry, this is not a new IP.

Tony-Red-Grave2220d ago

logic wins here :u

but yeah im curious to see if NT can really pull off a DMC game so far imo they have incorperated a few things fans have wanted for awhile in terms of weapons but we'll have to keep waiting to see the result.

Yeah, and for the next Die Hard movie we can get Owen Wilson instead of Bruce Willis to play John McClane. But hey, as long as the writing and visual effects are good...

we've been talking about how the game plays/looks the whole time.

LOGICWINS2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

As long as there are tons of unlockables, the gameplay is slicky smooth, the environments/enemies are varied, the graphics are nice, and the story is entertaining...I don't think anyone will go into cardiac arrest if the lead character has anything besides white hair.

"Yeah, and for the next Die Hard movie we can get Owen Wilson instead of Bruce Willis to play John McClane. But hey, as long as the writing and visual effects are good..."

If Wilson can make the role his own and have the attitude of an action hero..I wouldn't have any problems with it.

@jc48573- By "looks" I meant graphics, not actual character model aesthetics.

Lifendz2220d ago

Just make him look like Dante so we can all put this behind us.

Gordo7892220d ago

stop making so much damned sense!

The game is going to play like crap for a DMC title. How can I say this when I haven't played it yet? All you have to look at is Ninja Theory's track record. Heavenly Sword and Enslaved had sluggish, unresponsive characters with boring combat. The main reason it's that way is due to their love affair with motion capture. DmC is going to play just like those titles.

firelogic2220d ago

And another point is why change an iconic character's appearance? I mean this isn't the second game or even a new IP. There's been 4 games, a manga, and an anime series. He's also appeared in 3 other games. The guy is recognizable and is a brand in and of himself.

"And another point is why change an iconic character's appearance?"

Cause its a reboot..thats generally what happens in reboots. You see the new Spiderman trailer?

ABizzel12220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )


I'm getting tired of you beating me to the punch in every article. lol.

Once again I agree with Logicwins. THIS IS A REBOOT (which was highly needs after the DMC4 letdown which I blame on Nero and Kyrie). Before Dante was the Dante we know, this is a fresh take on DMC, before the 1st and before the 3rd (which was actually the first). If you'd took the time to look at the new in-game model you'd see he doesn't look bad at all (some of you still have that old E3 trailer look in your heads, that's changed for a younger look).

My guess is this game takes place somewhere around his mother's death so Dante doesn't really know he's half demon. And if you want white hair, that's what he gains in what seems to be this game's devil trigger.

Gameplay is the most important thing you should be worried about, and that's what I'm worried about the most. Ninja Theory have made some pretty good games (Heavenly Sword, and Enslaved), but they aren't the best at combat design, and from the looks of the new trailer, they've gotten better, but it's still doesn't look like it's on par with previous DMC's. Hopefully Capcom will step in an lend a helping hand in this department (I don't understand why this wasn't a joint effort on their part, but oh well).

Stop complaining and just wait and see.

Ducky2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

... It's a reboot that runs at 30fps and has a main character that, thus far, doesn't come close to likeability of the original Dante.

I don't see how being worried about a character design is a sign of being 'spoiled'. DMC is a series where Dante is more or less the main attraction. It would be just another hack-n-slash if it weren't for Dante's over-the-top antics.
When a dev can't seem to get a character design that resonates well with it's fans, what're the chances the actual game-design (or just general art) of the game will be any better?

... well, the monster design is still decent.

Besides, is a reboot even necessary? The DMC series has been following a trend in which all the odd numbered games have been the best. (Based on a whopping sample of four games)

MidnytRain2219d ago


"Thus far"

Haven't we only seen his face?

tiffac2219d ago

I can understand what most people are saying about this being a reboot and we shouldn't make a fuss about Dante's new look BUT...

Dante like has been said a couple of times here and elsewhere is an iconic character. You just can't just change that and have people accept it. We gamers have a certain connection to the characters we play, so you can reboot it, change the story whatever but do not change the character design itself.

I mean look at Lara Croft they are making a reboot of Tomb Raider but we don't see any major changes except that she looks younger.

Unless Ninja Theory and Capcom can evolve the drug addict looking Dante into the Dante we all know in love in the game (as the game progresses) then I think that would be more acceptable than keeping the new design permanent.

if its a reboot why? if its an origin story then i think the final design is the perma design but idk i dont work for capcom

ShoryukenII2220d ago

We don't need tweaks. We need this strange emo guy burned so the true Dante can rise from its ashes.

Keith Olbermann2220d ago

The original Dante isnt strange or emo?? If you saw a dude that looked like the original Dante on the street wouldnt his outfit and hair make you wince....LOL

ShoryukenII2220d ago

Fair enough. But the original Dante is less gloomy and doesn't look like he crawled out of a grave.

chaos-lockheart2220d ago (Edited 2220d ago )

I like it, don't know why people complaining. Saw the game play at E3, and it was really interesting, It's a reboot so I wont mind about how he look, besides it doesn't look that bad. It's like people are being racist. If this game was a continue from the last DMC yea i will be kind of upset too, but it's not.

Rashonality2220d ago

the fans will never be happy and that's a fact, the problem is Capcom and SquareEnix are trying too hard to appeal to the western market with existing IP's, and that will never work cuz people who know the games love them as they are and the new people they're trying to impress don't know or don't care about the game before till they end up losing both sides, the same exact thing happens to movies that are based on games, they change stuff too much and end up with a freak project that nobody likes.

Ducky2219d ago (Edited 2219d ago )

(I fail at replying)

I've seen two trailer thus far.
One has a fair amount of gameplay, the other is fairly cinematic (you can hear Dante say something).
In both cases, the new Dante feels a lot more... serious. Not the wise-cracking yahoo we're used to.

So far, I haven't liked the vibe of the new character, but it remains to be seen what they do with it. I'm still feeling more cynical than optimistic.

Spenok2219d ago

Its a reboot man, shit changes when reboots come around. Character design is usually the first thing changed. Now i understand they could have a much better new design, but we dont nessisarily need the origional design.

Capcom is always like: "if fans support this, if fans support that" then guess what. We are not supporting this garbage. Cancel it like you did with MML3 because clearly, this game doesn't has an audience. (╯°□°)╯︵┻━┻

zerocrossing2220d ago

Lol, well said. It goes to show Capcom likes to spout nonsense to benefit their poor decisions.

xtheownerzx2220d ago

Geez Capcom can't buy a break huh smh

Gothdom2220d ago

Gothdom is still not interested
