Capcom has released 2 new gameplay videos for DmC.
This game lost things about DMC that made it was it was.The heavy gothic overtones, the powerful monsters that only a demon like real Dante could kill. SHM,I want a true DMC game,not this shit..
I'm sorry but I'm not interested at all in the new Devil May Cry. He looks too much like Edward Cullen from Twilight aka Robert Patterson. He's already over saturated enough. I don't need him in my damn video games too.
say what you want, imo it looks great. still a day one buy for me. i still dont care for dantes new look but w/e ill get over it
Agreed and Dante looks more like the evil dead than a devil hunter who is half human half devil or for this matter half angel half devil. Odd how his angel mother has had zero influence on Dante looking remotely normal. The 1st video had zero action just all boring platforming ala Enslaved style. Looks like the engine cant do morphing worlds and combat at the sametime. The 2nd video probably tried to capture previous DMC combat but failed for being slow and because gunplay was lame probably because they didnt want an outbreak of "omg why are the guns over heating!!!" Looks like this DMC will also follow suit of previous Ninja Theory titles by having some form of partner like Kai in Heavenly sword and whatever her name in Enslaved. Gone are the days of old DMC. May in rest in peace and may Hideki san release a true successor with Bayonetta 2. The biggest shame in all of this is had Ninja Theory kept their mouth shut and released it as an original IP, not only do I think it would have been better, but it would have probably not had this level of back lash. However, as DMC it doesnt look like it will be good enough and probably end up selling to a new crowd (the crowd who bought Enslaved).
This is not Devil may cry.. this is bullshit
Looks pretty cool so far, but that first trailer isn't new. It's been online for ages.
When DMC is in ashes.......Capcom has my permission to die....*Bane Voice*
I'm glad the character concept changed a little since the announcement. He doesn't look like a little punk anymore. Combat looks solid. That's why I played DMC in the first place. The only one I thought had a good story was DMC 3. Hopefully this one can top that.
I noticed this in the screenshots Capcom released today : http://raptornews.com/ Anyway, DmC is looking better and better. Now I'm not saying that it will eventually be an amazing game that lives up to the DMC franchise, I'm just pointing out the fact that NT has greatly improved their build. It's a good thing that they're slowly showing us how the game works. When people saw the slow-mo moments breaking the combat's flow, they focused on that. Now that it's not a problem anymore, it's time to focus on the health bar, the style meter (which I like), and it goes on and on. So I do hope all the feedback Ninja Theory gets will be intelligently used.
The style meter is the only thing I've liked thus far. The health meter has to go. It looks so freakin' stupid...
It does feel like it doesn't belong here. DmC is the most colorful of them all, yet they are giving it a grey straight line for a health bar? I can understand the style meter and the combo information being white/greyish so that it can easily be read with all those colors around. However, the health bar should be completely redesigned to look like it's more than just a line. I always think of how awesome God of War's HUD is. Colored lines on one huge blade. And then someone thought it would be fun to add blood on it when players hit enemies! It's simple and it works. Surely Ninja Theory can come up with something better than curbstones...
This looks awesome..no offense but..some of u haters needs to stfu.
I love how it's ok for you to express your liking of the game, but 'haters' need to shut up. I mean seriously? This is probably the most retarded thing I'll read in weeks.
I never said I liked or disliked the game. What are you...some kind of idiot? No, an idiot deserve more credit then a down syndrome child like yourself. Besides that, what's wrong with being a homosexual exactly? Not to say I am gay (which I'm not) but seriously? It's 2012 buddy, grow the fuck up.
And the gameplay looks like shit too.....this is not Devil May Cry...... 30 fps doesn't do it for any action game, especially a button masher....
"Besides that, what's wrong with being a homosexual exactly? Not to say I am gay (which I'm not) but seriously? It's 2012 buddy, grow the fuck up." I find this quote incredibly amusing and hypocritical when compared with your earlier "No, an idiot deserve more credit then a down syndrome child like yourself." line. Very interesting to see a person touting equality and maturity, then use insults that are offensive to more than the person you're directing them at. That seems rather idiotic and immature to me. Sure makes you seem just as bad as Vandamme21, doesn't it? So, Vashlion, I ask you: What makes homosexuals and idiots deserve respect, whereas you're quite comfortable insulting those with down syndrome? As far as I can tell, none of these can help the way they are, nor is there anything wrong with that.
Those with down syndrome are retarded. That's what it is. I'm comparing his intellect to that of a down syndrome person. I'm not claiming it's inherently wrong with those who have down syndrome, I'm claiming there's something wrong with Van however. Either way an insult is an insult. I'm not gonna take back what I said, I'd rather be an asshole than a homophobic prick who puts down other's opinions and ways of life. btw, I never said anything about being mature or an 'equal-ist', I don't see myself as either of those things.
"I'm comparing his intellect to that of a down syndrome person. I'm not claiming it's inherently wrong with those who have down syndrome, I'm claiming there's something wrong with Van however. " That statement contradicts itself. "btw, I never said anything about being mature or an 'equal-ist'" Look at the first quote in my previous reply. You questioned what is wrong with being gay, which promotes equality, by saying that one person that is different in some way is by no means less of an individual as a result. At least, that is how I see it, and very well, perhaps I'm reading too much into it. However you saying that you said nothing about maturity... that's just false. You said "It's 2012 buddy, grow the fuck up". "Grow up". Point made there. Also, I don't care if you would rather be an "asshole" than a "homophobic prick", I wasn't calling you out on being either, but yeah, you both quickly managed to seem like d*cks. My point was that while you posted a somewhat intelligent response to Vandammes21's initial post, that immediately went out of the window when he childishly hurled insults at you. You then just childishly threw more back at him, while employing double standards, as well as directly contradicting yourself. Which you then did again in response to me (contradicting yourself that is, you at least didn't feel the need to insult me). It just seems funny to me that you get on your high horse and act like you're above him and insult his intelligence, and yet your responses just make you seem childish as well.
Combat looks so exciting...NOT.
The game looks slightly smoother than before, but the physics are still messed up. It seems as if they are trying to make everything that took skill in the previous games more simple to pull off. Instead of having to learn how to jump cancel to keep the enemies in the air, NT has it to where all you have to do to keep enemies in the air is to keep mashing buttons. The hit pauses from the previous gameplay trailers still exists, and the combat looks to be too scripted for my taste. I'll just wait for MGR for my action game fix.
I'm liking what I see
They did a really good job "Westernizing" the game. As much as I don't care for the new DMC anymore, this seems very American if you get what I am trying to say. Especially after watching this: http://kotaku.com/5900616/n... Sadly I'm not feeling it, but whatever.
Well they did call Dante a terrorist. I mean, how american can you get after that?
:/ I know right.
Ok first of is this game is european and is made in both Japan and the UK, and is not "American". Second, I CANNOT BELIEVE people have not picked up on the news anchor bullshit part. That part was there to criticize and show the over exaggerated, un-correct, biased, and lying media (such as Fox News and CNN). They made the anchor over exaggerate and call him a terrorist, because American news medias like to throw that around freely at anything. It is a little parody, that is representing the biased and untruthful doings of American mass media and their PROPAGANDA. HOW THE HELL DID YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO CRIED ABOUT THAT PART NOT FIGURE THAT OUT??? Unbelievable.
Oh wait, I've only just realized what the videos of this article are... This is what must be watched, Gamespot's 6 minutes video with Antoniades explaining how the game works : http://www.youtube.com/watc... It is full of interesting information.
Come on guys. You're being too harsh. The game doesn't look half bad. I think they've done a decent job.
Compare that to this.....
While I agree that the game doesn't look bad, I think that the hate comes from not looking anything like Devil May Cry, they should've named it something else and leave it as what it is just a DMC clone.
The look isnt the only issue. But that the only relation to the original series is the name Dante, Ivory & Ebony, and Sparda; unless they changed his father's name too.
I liked what I saw, But I'm not exactly convinced of the mini demons he's facing. They look like fodder that he simply mows down in herds... But story will be top notch. And his character design has largely improved from a meth head to something a little more earthly. Case in point. I can't wait to play it.
I'll just paste what an user from Gaf ( that played it already ) said. ( i'll wait for the disagree for stating the truth ) The control scheme is completely changed around. Everything is way easier to do: Move -> How you did it in previous games -> How you do it in DmC Hightime -> R1 + Back + Y (hold Y) -> Hold B Roll -> R1 + Left/Right + X -> Press RB There isn't anything in the game that requires more than 2 inputs together and most of those moves are the stance moves where you are either holding RT or LT. I haven't even seen anything that requires you to even push the analog in any direction, it's all auto-targetted soft lock on. Suddenly that instance of Dante comboing an enemy and then switching to a target from off screen way back in TGS makes sense now. This game looks like a DMC game because the moves are straight up ripped from previous games... but you aren't inputting the same commands. It's like saying Bayonetta is DMC because it has Hightime like moves and aerial combos plus long ranged weapons etc... doesn't make it a DMC game. In fact Bayonetta having a hard lock on option is more DMC than DmC is.
What's funny is how the press ragged on , trashed , spitted upon , cursed Ninja Gaiden 3 , imo rightfully so ... Yet have been praising DmC with the same flaws and worse so far . I'm not even saying NG3 is better (nor worse) , but the double standard has been quite funny to witness .
This game will be a piece of shit when it comes out.
