There's a huge difference between being passionate about a franchise you like and making death threats because you don't like the direction a game studio is taking that franchise. Yet this isn't surprising. Not when you hear the comments people make on online services like XBOX Live and PSN. Would people be so bold if the comments were attached to your personal Facebook account? Anonymity shelters them, that's why they act the way they do.

is just a bunch of nerds talking BS on the mic
i hate cyber bullies cause i in real life i bet they dont act or say things like that
im glad capcom didn't say much on the death threat comment they shouldn't waste their time

Seeing as I already have 2 disagrees it's obvious there's a group here on N4G that are content on being disruptive. Did I say something that wasn't reasonable?

Army_of_Darkness1576d ago

If your someone that makes death threats because of a video gaming going in a direction you don't like, it's obvious your a loser and full of shit, like someone that will never be taken serious! so shut the [email protected] up!
I don't like the new DMC either, but it ain't the end of the world. These dumb-ass's need to get their priority straight.

N4G needs to start showing who agreed and disagreed.

Hozi1576d ago

Im sure the losers who sent death threats to NT were hoping they could scare the dev. into not making the much for that plan. I'm actually lookig forward to the new DMC. We'll have to wait and see if it lives up to it's predecessors though.

don't mind the disagrees, there are people like that and this, i believe you know.

fei-hung1576d ago

I agree with the what you say, but Capcom are silly for ignoring the bigger picture. Let's face it, the death threats aren't as serious as the DMC franchise going to hell and costing Capcom lots of money.

Capcom needs to realise the reason behind the negative emails and the so called death threats. If they can come out saying death threats are wrong, they can also come out openly and say what they are doing with the DMC franchise is wrong.

Not saying one is better or worse than the other, but the principles are the same - if something is wrong, admit to it, apologise and stop making matters worse.

Flatbattery1576d ago

I agree that Capcom need to take notice of the hate, while death threats are unacceptable they certainly convey the mood of the fans that have kept the DMC franchise popular.

If they are trying to sell this DMC to the Twilight crowd then so be it, but at least be honest. Personally I don't like where it appears to be going, but I'll judge it when it's released.

And being able to change from a disagree to an agree.

I sometimes make the mistake of acting out of a emotional response, only to later realise that I should not have.

dredgewalker1576d ago

I usually don't agree with Levelhead but time this I think he has a point. I don't like the direction that DMC is heading but making deaththreats is just plain low.

Capcom Comments on MegaMan:

"Who's Mega-Man?"

While the death threats are extreme.

Capcom and Ninja Theory should just focus on the game.
But judging by the news reports, they have taken the fan back-lash to heart. And this shows, with changes to the games story last year, and the introduction of emo Dantes' 'Devil mode'.

If Capcom gave a crap about DMC, they'd be developing this game themselves, or chosen a capable developer like Kojima did with Metal Gear Rising (MGR).

In my opinion, Capcom are about to learn an important lesson. "Don't f*ck with the fan base".

testerg351577d ago

You do know that a bunch of PS3 fans are pissed at how MGR is turning out right?

Double-D1577d ago

PS3 fans

I think Metal Gear Solid fans in general are annoyed over whats happened to rising. Don't just pin it on PS3 fanboys.

ShaunCameron1576d ago

I guees it's because

1) Raiden's the main character and it's gonna be a straight-up hack-n'-slash action game


2) it's gonna be a multiplatform game.

Man In Black1576d ago

People are pissed with the game because it looks like a pile of shit. Don't try and spin it, fanboy.

dredgewalker1576d ago

It's not because people are PS3 fanboys that we're complaining about the new DMC. It's simply because this new DMC is alienating the fans that made the series successful. I'm simply not buying this game cause this is not the DMC I love.

Publicity stunt at its finest. NT have been a bunch of attention seeking morons since day one. Capcom been a bunch of saps this generation. MML says hi. Screw you NT, screw you Capcom. Release this title and lets see if you can put your money where your mouth is...
