Video game publisher Capcom was prepared for the reaction that the fan community had to the new look of the upcoming Devil May Cry reboot.
I too am hoping that DINO here (Dante In Name Only) is never seen again after this game flops hard. I was willing to give it a chance, but the more I see of it, the worse it looks.
real fans should look to MG: Rising for their DMC fix... To be fair the game looks nice even if DONTE' is annoying as shit.. i just hope they bring it out on pc so i can play it at 60fps with no screen tearing.
I care more for the story, I want the original to end before they decide to move on with this new story. Because the only connection between this story and the original is the NAME Dante, Ebony & ivory, and that's about it (so far).
Yay! Someone with sense! I was willing to give it a try at first too, but now... Well let's just say I'd rather Devil May Cry die out here than see the series continue with this fake Dante.
Well this is obvious anyone, be it movies or games would anticipate a reaction when changing the look (or anything related) of a character, it comes with the territory.
They would have handled things better if they knew. If they knew fans at all MML3 wouldn't have been the mess it was.
Simply put, they just don't care even when they knew what was to come. What they are trying to do is create a wider audience for increase profit. Just look at RE6. They are NOT trying to please the ORIGINAL fans.
You'd think it would be common sense in business terms to keep our core user market while also trying to appeal to new customers. What the hell happened to it?
they already tried that^ DMC4 introduced romance for the first time for the sole reason of increasing the female audience. While the game was still DMC, the romance aspect was totally new when compared to the previous games. I personally didn't enjoy it as I don't see that the series needs, and it doesn't (Capcom's greed wants it). The best theme song for any DMC game is the one for DMC3. DMC4's first half is similar, which made it really good. However when the second half came in, the song was ripped to shreds, it was like a R&B song, or well it just went from hardcore to Romeo & Juliet.
Wait, they anticipated our reaction? so they were intentionally trying to piss us off?
Seems to be Capcoms fetish, p!ss!ing people off. But for people who don't like Dante's new look, don't worry, they'll probably have day one DLC for the Classic Dante skin at a premium.
So much whiny fanboys in here. You will all buy the game anyway when nobody is looking.
This is DMC not Dead Or Alive Beach Volleyball......
Cool story bro.
no actually we wont, but hey keep telling yourself that
Where's the key to the time machine? Oh? of course it is in your head.
I swear to god i won't buy this game, happy?
Did they also anticipate that this game is going to suck?
I personally have nothing but high hopes for this new DMC it looks very interesting,DMC4 was boring & lame as hell & it's good they're putting a fresh coat of paint on the series,I can't wait to play. I could care less if anyone disagree.
They didnt anticipate my reaction...I love it, DMC 4 was such a bore compared to the original DMC and Heaveny Sword soim up for this reboot.
"and a lot of times that’s how bad games get worse." So he's saying that the game is already bad.
of course they anticipated it because they specifically told ninja theory to piss *them* off with the dante reboot. and lol @ all the whiny crybabies in this thread crying over a *video game character model*.
This article is old. How did it get approved again? Like I said the last time it was posted, which was here... http://n4g.com/news/1038364... "“We knew from the start that whenever you change something like this, there’s going to be some people that will be very interested in that. But it will also scare some people, and make some nervous." Very few were interested in it, and even now that remains to be true when measured against the majority. And no one was scared or nervous, we were angry. You don't change iconic characters and designs. The very definition of iconic resists change from a thematic perspective. You're 100% behind the new direction, then I hope you'll be 100% behind its failure. And if the original style was going to return in the future, what then is the point in this? You see Capcom, you can't be trusted. Nothing you say can be trusted. That's your reputation this generation.
They weren't trying to piss people of on purpose but usually create people know that any decision made is usually going to have its doubters. If you tried to please everyone then you wouldn't have a very cohesive product. There are allot more people who like new takes old characters. There are so many gamers who don't like this change...but there are games that they want changed that somebody else would hate. In the end you can only follow your creative instincts and hope the majority likes it.
WE TOTALLY KNEW EVERYONE WOULD HATE DANTE that makes total sense
I'm with them. I really don't care about his look. He used to be an emo goth. Now, he's an emo punk. That's the only physical difference. Lol. As far as the game play goes, all the previews have been very positive. Ninja Theory makes fantastic games, so I have no doubt DMC will be awesome!
"I really don't care about his look." *Looks at avatar* Seems legit.
Old Dante was an emo goth? What DMC games were you playing? o.O
I was playing the same ones you were. He wore goth clothing and was very emotional about everything. Dramatic at times and sad at times. That's EMO.
you need to learn both the definition of "emo" and "goth" . As for that preview psotivity , when hasnt a NT game met nothing but praise from the press ? Still play like sh*t in the end
Emo = Emotional (He cried in two of the games...) Goth = Clothing style
Type Goth into google and go find your Dante.
Massive boots, trench coats, white hair, and gothic-era weaponry isn't goth?!??!?!?!? Then...what IS goth?
"He used to be an emo goth. Now, he's an emo punk. That's the only physical difference. Lol. " He used to be Dante. Now, he's Edward Cullen from Twilight. That's the only physical difference. Lol. Fixed. Thats my biggest problem about it honestly, he looks like that sissy faggy excuse for a vampire... I wont be buying this game, and I hope it flops. There is nothing worse than when video game creators do not listen to the fans.
Ppl already bashing the game before its out.
I played it. I loved it.
