DmC: Devil May Cry - So Good They Named it Twice

DmC: Devil May Cry launched 10 years ago to critical acclaim, but caused a significant stir amongst fans of the series.

SDuck455d ago

all in all, it was the 2nd most replayed by me (first being dmc5)

Godmars290455d ago

Named it twice cause they lacked imagination.

ApocalypseShadow454d ago

No matter how many times they try to push this game, I'll never play it.

But the PR keeps pushing it and pushing it when other DMC games are better and sold better.

TheLigX454d ago

Lol that’s absurd. You must be a real charmer.

Sgt_Slaughter454d ago (Edited 454d ago )

Ah we're at that point in time where failed games end up being needlessly defended and pushed as "underrated" or "gems"

There's a reason this caused Capcom to go back to the traditional DMC franchise.

DMC V became the top selling game in the series by a longshot. Even the team was more eager to make a new DMC game rather than try and continue the DmC reboot/spin-off and listened to fan input for V.

cue the puff pieces for Ninja Theory. Like what we saw happen with Deathloop and Tokyo, the MS marketing team is starting the hype machine early. So we see the revisionist history with their past games. Suddenly it's the best in the series lol. They've never made a bad game, they've just never made a successful one. Now, right or wrong because of the timing, their new game has the extra pressure of being the face of GP in 2022 alongside Starfield and Redfall. A lot of pressure for a studio that made its last game with 30 people. Let's hope 4th time's the charm

Looking Back to 2015 and DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition

Daniel writes: "DmC on Xbox One may have disappointed many, but it also provided an entry point to a previously impenetrable series for newcomers."

It sold poorly it’s why we have DMC5 instead of DmC 2 and from what I’ve been seeing of that Anarchy Reigns clone from Team Ninja I think it was for the better.

How The Devil May Cry Games Pulled Me In

Pratyush writes- "According to fans, the wait for the latest DMC installment was torturous; 11 years without a sequel to a game that not only defined a genre but even after all this time, stands atop every other game that it inspired or was inspired by. DMC5’s trailer sent every person who loved video games into a frenzy. More than a decade later, an icon of gaming was returning after being dragged through the mud *cough* DmC *cough*.

DMC5’s reveal trailer brought with it all the cheesiness that was popular in the early 2000s and felt gamey for all the right reasons. Add to that, the persistence of my colleagues that the DMC games (and Ninja Gaiden) were must play action titles and their sarcastic jabs at me for having only played the (shitty) reboot; I relented. Before the release of DMC5, I went back and completed DMC3 and 4, only missing out on DMC1 because it kept crashing on my system (and 2 because that was in a, uhhh “league” of its own)."

Dante had style for an @$$ kicker. That's what attracted me to the franchise. That first demo that came with the Code Veronica game was Gothic and Castlevania like walking down those hallways. It was amazing. And the attract video in-between made you want more.

As a fan of the series, buying the manga, buying the action figures, watching the anime, it turned me off with Tameem Antoniades of Ninja Theory saying Dante had no style and he knew what was better. That first pick of his "Dante"
https://i.pinimg.com/origin...
showed me he didn't know what he was talking about. Especially with the fact that he needed to be redesigned from turning fans off to him. Besides the story being changed and the combat system being inferior to previous combat systems. Result: less sales. Capcom had to keep releasing it over and over or pair it with other DMC games in bundles to sell it. It under achieved.

Waiting for a DMC 5 with a more traditional Dante, is what fans like me wanted. It's like Jared Leto Joker.

https://fsmedia.imgix.net/2...
Complete turn off. No one wanted that. And movie sales showed that for Suicide Squad. While the Joker in the latest movie is not a turn off. And made a billion plus. Jared feel alienated after the new Joker was green lit. But it was fans who were alienated from a character they liked that was a turn off. Harley Quinn was alright. But that's only because Margot Robbie is hella fine. You can see her sexiness thorough the makeup.

Glad Dante is back. The cool Dante.

Yes. Devil May Cry 2 was a step back and umm... Interesting. But was stylish. And that Japanese commercial is still awesome to this day.

FU Tameem Antoniades.
