Isaiah Taylor of The Start Screen talks about how the advertising and promotional stunts surrounding Electronic Arts "Dante's Inferno" may have gimped the game before it had a chance to prove itself.
It seems to have gotten us to talk about the game quite a bit.
This game is a complete and blatant ripoff of GOWIII
^^ Oh man shut up the only thing it has in similar is its a hack and slash So what if the gameplay is similar to god of war? imagine a world where games weren't created in fear they would be too similar to other titles. What a crappy selection of games we would have. At the time Call of Duty was said to be a rip-off of Medal of Honor Now imagine if they had never made COD because it would be too much like MOH.
Thanks for the PM followed by the block. Truly the work of a scared child not wanting his feelings hurt. This game looks like a weekend rental at best.
But will it get you to buy it?
Yeah, I like the look of the game and the advertising campaigns made me laugh so why not.
Are you talking about the cheesy diary segments [which over use the term 'epic'] or are you talking about the live promotional stunts. They all made me laugh, but not enough to make me want to pull out my wallet. Maybe they'll show more gameplay that doesn't look like a carbon copy of God of War.
That the developers of the game are using the term EPIC to refer to the form of poetry that is the source material for the game and not the pop culture references that you hear shouted all over the internet. That being said...I don't think that this or ANY GAME has the EPIC scope and viability of a poem that has been around since 1321!!!
I will only buy God of War 3, sorry Dante
EA better be careful... Kratos does not like copycats
Kratos vs Dante, who would win? Chuck Norris
actually i am more interested in darksiders than Dante Inferno but i will buy both to hold me over till god of war 3
Darksiders looks awesome, eh? I keep forgetting about that one.
I don't see what all the fuss is about. But i know that i'll be buying any game that even threatens to pi$$ off religious people.
This game looks awesome and I love the way they've been virally doing the sins. Do I care it'll possibly play like a GoW title? Nope? Besides, doesn't one think that the core hack and slash, collect red orbs gameplay of GoW reminds one of Devil May Cry and even the Onimusha series? I personally think it's good this game is coming out.
There is a difference in improving a standard game mechanic as opposed to painting the core concept of said game in the look of a popular title. I hope Dante is good...hopefully it won't be a Bubsy.
Can not wait for this game. I am more excited about this game than i am about God of War 3.
