Why I believe the Devil May Cry Reboot will be a Blemish on the Franchise

GamerFitNation's Gregory Laporte gives his opinion on the current issue of Dante and the DMC franchise. "After watching the gameplay trailer fresh out of GamesCom for the new Devil May Cry, I took it upon myself to record my thoughts on what we all saw and the travesty given to us. Watch the end of the video for a very cool screenshot"

Personally I feel this is going to be "Devil May Cry 2" all over again!

iamtehpwn2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

so I'll take the Disagree hit majorly and be the only one to say:

I will judge a finished game, not a negative hype train based on a character design.

Kind of takes me back to the reaction of Wind Waker, in many ways.

crxss2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

saying anything positive about this game will definitely earn you some "Disagrees".

but yeah i'm actually gonna agree with you, not gonna judge it till i get my hands on it. even though NT's gameplay in Enslaved and Heavenly Sword was pretty stale, you know what they say... THIRD TIME'S THE CHARM!... at least i really hope so haha

*edit*
now i'm just watching DMC3 videos on youtube, best game in the series hands down.

BldyShdw2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

Totally agree with iamtehpwn

I cannot stand that everyone hates this game and it isn't even out yet. If it comes out and is horrible then okay that sucks...but what if it doesn't suck? You can't always tell a great game by trailers. I was so pumped for Alpha Protocol but then it was pretty mediocre...you never know what will happen.

@ crXss...yeah 3 is fantastic!

BLACKBIBLE2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

If you think it's all about character design then you missed the point entirely. Also Devil my Cry 2 is a prime example of "If it's not broke don't fix it" Point proven when they went back to the drawing board on DMC3. Plus the other factor, I could accept this story if the main character didn't carry the name of the Iconic Dante.

It's like reading a series of good books on a character you love only to see him turn into something that he never was I.E a British punk Rocker. If they were going to this they should have just said " this is a new DMC with a New character, and story" But instead they wanted to Use the name "Dante" to guarantee sales.

The game might be good, but the story sounds like trash. Also they are basically telling fans not to get attached to main character anymore. See it like this, imagine if Nintendo did a make over of Mario, with him looking like Edward from twilight, and they say he's not a plumber he's an assassin. Also instead of going after Bowser he's going after a Drug kingpin named "big B". Also princess peach is a prostitute who sells mushrooms on the side, and the kingdom is on Jersey Shore. BTW Mario's gay and his brother lugi died from a drug overdose that Big B sold him. You'd be pissed!.

@ BLACK

Haha, wow. That's a disturbing analogy.

fei-hung2276d ago

who said it's just the character redesign? It is:

1) character redesign
2) personality redesign
3) combat redesign
4) story redesign
5) presentation redesign
6) ignoring fans of DMC who have been playing it since dmc 1 days
7) self loving egotistical devs who redesign one of the best hack and slash characters after himself
8) ignorant devs who refuse to respect the fanbase who have supported the franchise for more than 10 years
9) drop in frame from 60-30fps

This is a reason why many DMC fans are outraged. It's like taking what made something really cool and stripping it all away and saying you have the same product when everyone around you knows you don't.

Not saying it is going to be a badgame, I am saying with the amount of changes they have made, they could have just made this a new IP. With everything hey have done where the only thing which has remained is the name "Dante" and "DMC", why bother even calling it DMC? they should have just gone that extra mile and named it "Ninja Theory May Cry" and names the character "Tameem" or whatever the dudes name is.

@fei-hung: exactly. Unfortunately, those who complain about the looks happen to be the loudest and the first to complain. That's why they're targeted. Somehow supporters lump all fans together and think that all fans are superficial jerks who only care about the hair. They just can't see that the problem is way beyond the character design.

There're problems with the game, I complain about it. All of those problems are crucial. I will not shut up until i see a decent gameplay video (yes, the last one failed in every standard of a DMC game) or a decent information about the game. If it's not good so far (i.e. after the 3rd try), what makes you think that it will be good when it's released considering the NT history of making games? Magic?

MaxXAttaxX2276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

involves more than just a different appearance. It also involves a change in his personality and character as a whole.
The story was changed too.

Not only will he look different, he will act, speak and be nothing like the Dante we know.

The guy literally said he doesn't care what the fans think and that Dante wasn't cool anymore. So he was designed him after his douchebag smoker self.
Apparently, this is what's cool now:

I never got past the second one. I loved the first one to death, but the second one just ruined it for me. Tried playing the third one for the hell of it but it just wasn't even close to being as enjoyable for me as the first and I only got an our or so in. I lost interest after that.

Meh ill stick to bayonetta over this cr*ppy series

tiffac0082276d ago (Edited 2276d ago )

But DMC is the brain child of Shinji Mikami and was directed by Hideki Kamiya the same guys who created Bayonetta.

There are parts of the series that wasn't bad such as 1 and 3. Then you get the so-so 4 and the ugh... well... horrible 2 and well we have the reboot ;_;

Edit: My post was incomplete when I clicked the comment tab. lol!

BLACKBIBLE2276d ago

Stop did he just showed a picture of Virgil in the video!? Vigil looked more like White haired Dante then the new Dante did.

Burning_Finger2276d ago

RUIN is the word.

Jack_DangerousIy2276d ago
