Play Mag: Is it really so terrible that Ninja Theory has been brought in to develop and brand new take on the Devil May Cry franchise?
After playing the Enslaved demo I say yes. The gameplay was shit, now combined with shit style.
couldn't say it better
This game deserves the Sh!t it’s getting. Redesgining such an iconic character like dante is just stupid. They’re alienating their existing fans by redesigning dante into a meth addict street punk. They’re just making dante appeal to the lowest common demoniator. Also, Ninja theory? They’ve only made mediocore games. and from the looks of enslaved their games are still continuing that trend. They suck at combat systems. So I have no idea who the hell they’re gonna replicate the super tight, super fast DMC combat system. DMC4 got low scores because of the repeating levels and bosses. Not because of the gameplay(which was indeed weaker than DMC3), Dante was one of the highlights of the game. I do hope to god this is only a spinoff. Fans wanted DMC5. A reboot is innoying, but bareable. Redesigning dante? No-one asked for that! No-one wanted that!
After i saw that 'thing' that Dante has become, i got a little dizzy. I thought that i was going to get a nose bleed because of the wierdness/crapness/gayness/emo ness/fagness/stupidness/black hairness. @ Ninja Theory Look into my avatars eyes and just try to come up with a good enough excuse for turning his brother into a transfag emo freak.
DMC used to one of my favourite franchises (big hack & slash fan) till that infamous trailer was released. I can't believe Capcom have approved these new changes. Ninja Theory have ruined one of the best the characters in gaming, why the hell did they kill off Dante & replace him with Ernie the Emo? (no way is that Dante, in my opinion). Wheres the Manga type art style gone? I've absolutely no interest in playing this version of DMC, it's a big kick in knackers for all DMC fans (I really hope it fails so the franchise can go back to it's roots). This was my reaction on hearing the news of a new DMC (replace Pat with Capcom):< http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Have team up with Platinum Games because these guys are amazing. Or at least Team Ninja.
Well... the director of bayonetta created DMC. so it wouldn't out of the realm of possiblilty.
is not just for the look (although the twilight inspired model is annoying) but for the implied character that will go with it. Will this guy have all the "angst" that goes with the look? Will he be overly melodramatic? This reinvention isn't anything new. The character they have turned Dante into is a walking cliché. A cliché that may resonate with overly hormone driven emotional teens (twilight audience?) but not (obviously) one that the average gamer likes or cares for, whatever their age! Admittedly this is all just based on a look but it would be strange to have this look but I completely different character to go along with the look. P.S. I think skinny jeans look crap on guys.
Wow, why are you all being a bunch of pessimistic bum-holes? I don't exactly care for the style of this Dante either but we essentially know nothing about the overall game yet and there is much development time left along with, dare I say? ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT. How about this guys? Go for a walk, drink a beer, take a chill pill, whatever you do to relax! Wait a while for substantial information on this new DmC then get angry if you don't care what its shaping up to be near release, preferably post release.
no one likes change, especially an unnecessary one, this is pretty much what killed the socom series.. and what if this dmc fails, we are supposed to go back to the original dante as if nothing happened? its tainted.. again, if they want to keep it in the same universe they could easily just have a new character and story arc, there is no reason for a reboot.. and reboots are only good after a minimum of 10 years post the last release of a game, movie etc
even if its kept in the DMC universe.. there is no reason for a reboot... that's the real problem....... i said a similar thing to a friend about fire pro wrestling avatars.. its like begging for gran turismo 5 but instead getting modnation racers with the gran turismo title.. ninja theory and sony should have worked on heavenly sword 2 instead.. then again.. screw ninja theory, sony owns the ip, they should give heavenly sword 2 to santa monica
