Why does everyone get so upset?! With the recent development of a "reboot" of Devil May Cry and an upcoming offshoot title for the Metal Gear Solid series, fans reacted with a raucous of very... very angry reactions. Justified or unjustified?
No. No. You said yourself, you just heard about this. You say, "Nobody takes the time to just think a second," but you clearly haven't done your research. The death threats? Yeah. A Youtube video by Gods Immortal Gauntlet. It's not a death threat by any means. Ninja Theory just wants your sympathy, but they aren't the victims. They've called the series they've been offered 'ridiculous' and have insulted not only its creator, but its fans as well. They're completely redoing the storyline. Yeah. So what does that make this? Well... Not Devil May Cry, that's for sure. It's closer to fan fiction. Furthermore, Devil May Cry is about fast gameplay - in 60 frames per second. Not 30. Like you said, Bayonetta was a good game. Yeah - that's Hideki Kamiya's influence right there. Do you even know who that is? Metal Gear Rising, though, that I'm fine with, because they've said it's something wholly different. I admire them for that.
Sigh... Seriously rewatch the video again and listen to what he says. He basically counters every single argument you just made. Stop being so ignorant.
So... I rewatched the video... He doesn't counter any of my arguments. At all. Nor does he even attempt to. Thanks for blindly agreeing with everything that gets posted on N4G. You are truly a hero.
This is what Franchises look like when they need to wrap up the story and call it quits. Metal Gear was finished with 4. It was epic, and a 10/10 in my book, but it is over. DMC needs to ens as well along with resident evil.
I agree, Metal Gear should be over. 4 was a brilliant ending. That said i still want a new game based on Revolver Ocelot, a trilogy may even be needed to fully understand his side of things.
I agree with you to some extent. But all time and energy should be removed from metal gear for awhile so we can get something new. Even if not completely new, how about finishing off existing games. Or remaking old school Konami games from the past. Snatcher? Zone of the Enders? An ocelot trilogy is nothing different then what they are doing with raiden. More side stuff. A new IP would be welcome from kojima and friends. Especially with a new generation closing in. The best time for a new IP is in the beginning of a new era.
Big fan of DMC I see. Very upset I see. Yes I do my research... Even though, err, not much research is needed to find that these escalated responses of something as outrageous as death is something that a sensible person wouldn't condone. Plus I'm saying it as an embellishment, because theres no way that such a threat is serious, we all know this. But its the general asinine outrage whenever the beloved franchise is touched that i'm trying to say is a bit overboard. People that think that they have a right to the creative direction of a series because they knows whats best because um... They do? The logic doesn't line up. This constant return to overwrought defensiveness and senseless outcries that end up looking childish and immature. And yes I know who Kamiya is, and how he "misses" his Dante, as well as his role in the polished nature of Bayonetta. And yes Ninja Theory's comments about the Western nature of their game might come across as abrasive, but i'm just saying... Chill out.
Nerd rage indeed. People didnt even had the chance to play these games and are already complaining by a certain style change in the series oh man guys just STFU and wait for the release and then complain about it if you dont like it but that wont change the fact if it will be a good game or not.
Changing the hero in a game to some is like changing a hero in reality. Example is what if someone did a story on Martin Luther king and made him a pot smoking rasta I am not that drastic but they didn't need to hange Dante at all. Reboots generally are only needed if a series starts to fail.
dude are like seriously trying to compare dante to MLK? you should really get a cat-scan. how you gonna compare a video game character to someone who fought for civil rights. like literally get your head out your ass.
I suffer from anxiety, so I don't like change...
im not going to support this metal gear because i dont ever want them to do something like this to the franchise ever again so im going DMC.
The thing I have against the DMC Reboot is how Ninja Theory and Capcom has been treating the fans/developers of the series. The game itself I will admit seems a lot better then its initial launch trailer. Will I say its Devil May Cry? No. The game itself is very catered to western tastes (where I believe majority of the fans like Japanese tastes)and the way the plot has been laid out makes the fans believe the continuity of the four games has been swept under a rugg never to see the light of day again (Believe it or not fans did want to see a game explaining Nero's origins/connection with Sparda). This game itself should of been it's own IP to compete with games like DMC and Bayonetta. Unlike Kojima Productions on Metal Gear Rising where Kojima said to the fans, "Be patient for a true stealth MGS." The issue most MGS fans had with Rising was they liked the original premise of the game a MGS game explaining Raiden's transformation from MGS2 to MGS4, the concept of Hunter Stealth, and the game being run on Kojima's new FOX engine. Instead what they got was a game that take's place during a time after MGS4, is over the top action, and is being run on Platinum's engine. The only issue I had with the new Rising was the story I have no qualms over the other issues cause Kojima expressed the issues of finding the balance between stealth and action I mean how are you gonna have stealth in a game that lets you cut everything?
hmmmm.....how much i LOVE both the series, i am skeptical about these upcoming installments. wish if i could get a hands on.
I don't think either game will do as well as the other games in the series, but that doesn't mean that they won't be decent games. MG: Rising was saved from the chopping block by Platinum, so if they didn't take it we would have never seen it again. They must think they have something to offer if they're willing to rescue the title from the grave, and Kojima must think so too if he was willing to give it to them. In regards to DmC, it's a new look on an established franchise, so automatically it will have detractors. NT hasn't exactly been the best at PR this gen either, so that's another area that might hurt them, but the game may still be good. Since they're both action games, I would be interested to see how they'd fare against each other if they were to release on the same day. Both developers are taking a risk, and it would be interesting to see which one of them can pull it off.
Say Sailor Moon was changed to a crack whore with depression who cut herself. Would you support this new direction with no comedy and the addition of blood, and sex? Would you believe it possible to reboot the series and bastardize your beloved characters and still pull it off? Not trolling, just playing Devil's Advocate and trying to have a decent conversation.
I'm guessing you're talking about DmC, and while I won't be buying it and I understand the reaction to the changes NT have made, that doesn't mean that the game won't be fun. There are a lot of games that I haven't played that are probably fun, but different people like different things. Would I be mad if they drastically changed something I liked? Of course, and even though I mentioned that a lot of people would be put off by DmC for that fact, and NT's PR mess, I was not passing judgement on the people who pass on the game for those reasons. In fact, I'm one of the people who won't be buying DmC for those very reasons, but that doesn't mean that the game has no chance of being decent. If DmC doesn't sell, Capcom may cancel DMC altogether or they may bring back the old style, but you have no guarantee of either of those results. Capcom have disappointed me a lot this gen, but they make the decisions that they think will work and deal with any consequences to those actions. I'm not obsessed with Sailor Moon, but if they changed the story to what you described I'd be worried about the sanity of the people in charge of the series. I suppose you could say the same thing about Capcom, but you have to admit that the changes you imagined for Sailor Moon are much more extreme than what Capcom has done to Dante.
I suppose I did go more drastic. And didn't know how into SM you were, just that you seemed to have some sort of fondness for, at the very least, Tuxedo Mask himself. I tried to compare the changes made. Dante no longer has a sense of humor, he smokes, and looks like he's spent the last 3 years chain snorting, shooting, and smoking. XXXD As for Capcom's current strategy, I'm actually expecting DMC5's unveil sometime this year and I shall explain why. Opperation Raccoon City is their outsourced gamble but RE6 is still coming out. They announced it close to ORC's release so as not to try and steal the advertising thunder from it but this way they can save face and maybe net more fans with OCR. By outsourcing it, they're using another batch to be the fall guys if things go sour. I believe they're doing the same thing with DMC. As far as Gameplay for DMC goes it looks amusing but rather slow in comparison. They've also said he'll have 3 different weapons. Neutral, L2, and R2 which brings me right back to Heavenly Sword's combat which was abysmal at best, plus D Trigger is only arial and ends the second you hit the ground. It's true, I can't say how this will work out but it is sounding fairly uninspired. *taps chin* Just brainstorming out loud at this point. I have a tendency to ramble.
The only people who should be upset about MGR are the people who were really looking forward to the build shown in the 2010 trailer. DmC hate is completely warranted though, these are not the same issue at all. I knew it was only a matter of time before somebody would write an article comparing the controversy of DmC to MGR.
