DmC's new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante

"Ninja Theory's redesign of Dante in DmC: Devil May Cry is easily one of the most controversial overhauls in gaming history.

I'm looking forward to playing it to see this for myself!

:-) Opinions of anyone aside.

Though after having done so, you still wont know where this article is going.

NewMonday2202d ago

the problem now is actually the gameplay, from what we have seen it is not very smooth

N4GDgAPc2202d ago

We? You ment I. You must of been watching the first gameplay footage ever revealed because it looks smooth to me.

Sevir2202d ago

The game because NT is doing it! Ive seen itand it looks smooth, perhaps its not 60pfs like we've all come to expect from DMC games, but its a locked in 30fps there have been no dips in frame rate, even with all the rearrangement of platforms and real time environment changes happening along with all the physics there is no real way to discern that without playing it yourself. which i intend to do upon release!

The gameplay video has the guy just mashing X and fake Dante was going full easy automatic on the enemies. Check out the control layout and it's screaming casual gameplay. By the way this is on hard mode and you can see how little damage an enemies attack does to the player.

They turned DmC fast challenging gameplay to GOW's tanky mash buttons gameplay. Also, it auto switches the weapons for you. Also, check out how easy it is to get S rank WHILE getting hit.

wishingW3L2202d ago (Edited 2202d ago )

Youtube frame-rate is capped at 30 frames and not to mention the heavy compression even on 1080p. -_-

If the game dips below 20 frames you will not be able to notice it because youtube will make it look like 30.

You need to download direct-feed videos and not many sites provide that kind of service. From the ones I know: Digital Foundry and but DMC reboot gameplay does seem laggy. The game will be just another button masher with a bunch of canned combos. =/

Redrum0592202d ago

Was a big fan of the franchise, but looks like MGRaising will be more of a DMC then the dmc reboot. Goin else where for my hack-n-slash crave

" Jim Sterling"

*turns around*

This should be good :)

Abriael2201d ago

it's usual Jim Sterling trolling and trying to be funny. Of course he's funny pretty much only for those that don't have a working brain, pretty much like him.

I am always with the developer. It is their baby. If I don't like their end product, I will just skip it. But they should make changes when every they think they need to. It has to come from inside or they should leave it and move on to something else.

GraveLord2202d ago

"If I don't like their end products, I'll just skip it"

How can you know of you like it if you don't play it?

Whitefox7892202d ago

However the developer is Ninja Theory; not Capcom.

I'm just saying...

Neko_Mega2201d ago

Its not their baby, thats what you fail to get.

N4GDgAPc2202d ago

Because everyone can tell how hard a game is just by watching videos and never playing it!!

ZombieNinjaPanda2202d ago

I didn't realize that somehow gameplay suddenly magically changes from the videos you were watching to the game you're playing.

Amazing how that must work.

N4GDgAPc2201d ago

And you can magically tell that there playing Dante must Die mode by watching a video.

Enigma_20992201d ago

So that means we can disregard yours, right? And as for the article...

"Lengthy arguments have been made, explicitly detailing why the new Dante is such a bad character, and yet others vehemently claim Capcom will never get their money again. Opinions are heated."

... and you're not helping.

This was hilarious. I hope no one just sees the title and posts a stupid comment. Oh yeah......this is N4g.

thanks for the heads up, I was about to post a rant. XD

Article written by Jim Sterling...

A fat ass who´s likes DmC, and who compares DMC fans with nazis.

He says that not a single good videogame was made by a game studio from Japan, and complains that anime artstyle of Japan is ugly.

Then tell me MR fat ass - who created DMC gameplay (concepts and ideas)? What studio created DMC 1, DMC 2, 3 and 4 - that DmC is based off (ROUGHLY 80% of gameplay in DmC is from the DMC serie).

This is an article from a fat ass similar to Bob Bargas character in DmC (the propaganda guy - "just doing god´s work").
This fat ass likes BRITISH Ninja theory´s DmC reboot, and it´s version of Dante. This fat british.

He also says that you shouldn´t trust DMC in Capcom´s hands because they will ruin the serie like they did with Resident Evil 6. But Mr Fat ass - check your facts: DmC gameplay has been invented by Hideki Kamiya+ Capcom, and that same gameplay has been PRODUCED in Unreal Enginge by Ninja theory with LOADS of help from Capcom developers.

And how LEGIT it is to bring up a cutscene from a game FOCUSED on gameplay made in 2001 (DMC 1) to compare to a game made in 2013 (who is recycling 80% of gameplay ideas from DMC serie = 10 years of gameplay experience).

Enuff said.

P.S If he doesn´t like anime artstyle then he can go suck on a horse´s dick like the way he´s sucking on Ninja theory´s dick.

HarryMasonHerpderp2202d ago (Edited 2202d ago )

Funny article ^_^

Whitefox7892202d ago

I think this article was just sarcasm written all over it. Don't take it too seriously...

I found one misconception in the article for his supposed persona where he said not a single good video game was made in Japan; he stated this, "This is why I can barely get five minutes into Ico, but have spent a cumulative thirteen years playing Ridge Racer."

I wonder why that persona can play Ridge Racer for thirteen years if it was made by, Namco which is *dun dun dun!* a Japanese game company.

hkgamer2202d ago

article was just a joke, full of sarcastic comments. You could tell he was being sarcastic all the way from some comments he makes throughout the article, for example about silent hill being anime like.

I don't understand why you have so many agrees, did anyone actually read this article or are they basing it off the title and little summary?

I thought this article was pretty decent, kinda shows how some internet people come up with weird ways to justify their point. I have read some people on the internet saying that if you ignore the negative reviews of RE6 then it will have a pretty good score.

SilentNegotiator2201d ago

I certainly hope you're simply returning the sarcasm favor. Because if you read this article literally....oh my...

Kurt Russell2201d ago


It was a blatantly sarcastic article... Nice dipshit rant though.

You actually thought this article was funny? It was a terrible article. Dude tries to troll way too hard. He also sounds like he doesn't know jack about gaming at all when trolls that hard. It's pretty pathetic.

Anyway, New Dante sucks, DmC is trash, and I hope some Capcom execs get fired.

Bimkoblerutso2202d ago (Edited 2202d ago )

It's fairly clear that he's parodying the arguments of the game's proponents.

Though as far as the article goes, I have to agree with you. Sterling routinely writes some of the most unfunny, ham-fisted satire this side of Michael Moore's Canadian Bacon.

jrbeerman112202d ago


I love how someone posts a stupid comment in reply to yours. priceless. Even worse he read article and didn't pick up on the sarcasm...

Haha you really need to read the article.

Emilio_Estevez2202d ago (Edited 2202d ago )

agreed. Sometimes Sterling is a bit crazy, but other times it's pure gold. So funny, especially the end.

ziggurcat2202d ago (Edited 2202d ago )

that article gave me scabies.

people need to quit acting like a bunch of whiny crybabies over a stupid character model.

Eamon2202d ago

This was quite funny.

Captain Qwark 92202d ago

agreed, i was cracking up lol. it was so well written too that at times i couldnt tell if he was serious or joking lol.

either way, im indifferent. im still going to buy and play this game, what ive seen looks great and new dantes looks arent great but arent terrible either. i could prob get used to them.
