Capcom's Seth Killian and Christian Svensson share their thoughts on how Ninja Theory's reboot is progressing.
Riiiiight, hence the reason for Emo Dante right? Because he's totally and completely UNMISTAKABLY Devil May Cry? GTF Outta here with that.
I am one of the peeps that isn't exactly thrilled with the new direction of "dante"'s look. But being a fan of DMC(sic) I am interested to see if they tweak the small number of problems I have with the series. PEACE!
There were no problems. Only that it wasn't long enough.
Not long enough would be a problem wouldn't it? :) The lock-on system was my main minor problem. I respect your opinion. It's a great series
Derp, "CAPCOM's Seth Killian and Christian Svensson". Yeah. They'd definitely be good sources of unbiased accurate opinion.
My main gripe with this game is I know it's gonna be running at around 25FPS through a majority of the game because of the Unreal Engine (not to mention the whole changing the game to where only the name resembles the previous entries).
It's running on Unreal? Really? That's just sad.... Considering DMC 4 was on a version of the MT Framework engine and still to this day looks damn good(not to mention that engine has been overhauled like twice since DMC 4 as far as I know) The Unreal engine is perhaps the worst engine you can use for a action game like DMC. It's slow often times buggy and has horrible collision detection problems(even in Epics own games) so in a game that needs to be really fast and precise it's the worst choice possible.
Yes it is Unreal Engine unfortunately, This is my main particular worry, The only way I can see UE running 60FPS is with much lower res textures and/or lots of unused assets. Maybe they found a way? But I doubt it, I have no faith in NT and I am possibly one of the biggest fans of their debut game
How is that sad? DICE's Mirror's Edge runs on Unreal....NT's Enslaved runs on Unreal and they both look totally different and both run flawless. All of u are overbearing ur criticism, check ur self or u will get no more satisfactorily results when playing ANY game...and that's just sad if u r a gamer, better quit while ur ahead.
Mirror's Edge was a great game but it didn't run flawless nor did it look flawless. I loved the use of color and all that in the world but there are still the typical god that looks terrible moments. For example the girl with the blond pony tail. Her hair doesn't even look like hair. It looks like a plastic party hat that's shaped to look like hair. And Enslaved wasn't flawless either. It had screen tearing aplenty and just as many visual quirks as Mirrors Edge did. Now Heavenly Sword on the other hand had none of that and was polished to a T. I'm not being overbearing on games but I will be when it comes to a series I loved and saw no reason for change(graphically DMC 4 looks better then the new DMC reboot and part of that is the engine and the other part is the art direction) Trust me I love plenty of games most people do nothing but trash but I have the right to be critical of a series I liked when it gets a reboot that many fans feel it didn't need in the first place.
Not to mention some screen tear maybe, if we are to look at Enslaved as to what NT can do with the UE. On the other hand they now have made a game using the UE, so they might me much better at handling it this time around. I certainly would have liked Enslaved better if the game had been better optimized and performed better. It was just a little disappointing after the much smoother gameplay in Heavenly Sword...
So you have seen the game running to be able to do does claims..Unreal Tournament 3 uses the first version of UE 3 tech and runs at 60fps on consoles and it sure packs more action than DMC.
No deadlybrand I obviously haven't played it but I think it's safe to assume from NT last UE games and how it performed we won't be seeing no 60fps console version unless major cutbacks are made. Mark Rein himself said that you could run the UE3 at 60fps but it would be at a major draw back graphically (he said it when someone asked why Gears isn't at 60fps). Also UT3 isn't even the same type of game so it doesn't matter if it runs at 60fps or not (which i don't believe it does, it was only rumored to and then I believe Rein said it would be locked at 30fps), most UE games on consoles don't run higher than 30 besides stuff like MK and even NetherRealm Studios said it was hard to get UE up to 60fps without cutting back on the graphics and that's just a fighting game. I personally don't think the Unreal Engine is bad I just think for some games you shouldn't use it especially when you have an engine already built that not only looks better but runs better and was used on the previous entries in the series (MT Framework).
They need to take the Sucker Punch route by listening to the fans and change Dante back to how he use to look, maybe then people will start to pay attention again.
sadly... its capcom it wont happen.
Well Capcom likes to do thing their own way, sometimes it work out, other not. We'll just have to wait and see. I don't think we can pass judgment based solely on the one trailer released so far...
@ [email protected] one can hope. @ andron666 I'm not saying it can't be a good game but Dante's new character design looks terrible and I don't buy into him being a badass.......sorry :(
@play: true, life is about dream and hope that those dreams come true. but ones our/those dreams are connected to other individuals or a video game company like on this case, capcom its quite tough to think otherwise :/
An emo-drogadict-hipster Dante running on Unreal Engine? Sure, unmistakeably Devil May Cry...
I could care less that they changed dante's look. Yes, he looks like an emo tool that should be in a twilight film more than an action game. But gameplay makes games, not asthetics alone. That is my problem. Have you played heavenly sword or enslaved? Thier combat systems fail hard and I seriously doubt they will be able to do the tight and polished DMC combat system justice. Only time will tell of course. Not expecting much though
To an extent, I agree with you. And you are one of the few people to actually understand my point of view. The main reason why I'm so bothered by NT taking over the DMC franchise is how both of their games have NOTHING in comparison to DMC regarding the combat systems. DMC is just on a whole new level... and to be quite honest, as you stated. NT will have to work incredibly hard to get the DmC reboot to come even close to DMC4... Hell, it won't even scrape DMC3. Regarding his look, that's the only thing I disagree with you on (No, I didn't give you a disagree). His look is: as other's stated, Iconic. He's been in a few other games other than DMC and he just looks like one badass guy who'll fuck people up. I don't "hate" the new dante's character design, but I do hate that they're calling him "Dante" when he looks nothing like the well-known hero...
I SORT OF LIKED THE NEW COLE'S LOOK IN INFAMOUS 2 BEFORE THEY REVERTED BACK HOPE HE'S UNLOCKABLE... BUT I DO UNDERSTAND THE GRIPES COULD HAVE BEEN WEIRD TOO BEAT THE FIRST GAME, POP IN THE SECOND AND WHAT THE HECK WHERE'S COLE.....
That was kinda my point too Dante looks way tooo different and not in a good way either!
infamous 2 isnt a series reboot your point is invalid
Hideo Kojima is the only developer with enough guts to criticize his own game.
oh yeah? What about Peter Molyneux dissing his own Fable2 and envying Uncharted 2?
he does that only after the game sold what it was going to sold. lol
Sigh, I know I'm going to get disagrees. BUT I loved the original Devil May Cry. Dante, Lady, and Trish were awesome imo. Nothing can replace the feel they the game. I was watching the anime today (not the best) and it reminded me how awful the change of Dante is. The devil cried when he saw the new DMC XO
Why would you possibly get disagrees? The original Devil May Cry was a fucking masterpiece...
and that is what we call an opinion. either way i agree
Long Live the original Dante... I own all games (would of owned the remake on the PSP IF capcom released it), mangas and novels... I really am questioning if this will be the first DmC game that I will not own. Depends on what I see.
i dont care about the fucking visuals , cancel this game please for the sake of humanity
why the game is no buy for me...and i really hope it doesn't get released in japan! unreal engine no Yuji Shimomura for cinematics hideous character design a game made by shity dev cancel the game and save yourself the big embarrassment NT!
I desperately want this to fail. I want it to bomb in the sales department. Then we'll get the game we want.
