Was I watching what everyone else saw?
The game looked amazing. I just don't understand.

Fangirls will be fangirls. They will pass on this game based solely on the fact that A: Ninja Theory are "allegedly" assholes, and B: That is NOT Dante.

For the record, if people would actually READ the bloody articles, it was CAPCOM's decision to change his appearance, NOT Ninja Theory's. Capcom wanted a redesign, NT did what they were told, and Capcom liked it so they went with it.

If Capcom wanted to keep the same appearance, NT wouldve have kept him the same.

If there is ANYONE to blame, its Capcom, not Ninja Theory. Say what you will about Heavenly Sword 2 and Enslaved, however I found them to be brilliant games, and I have no doubt NT will deliver again with DmC.

Ghost2502692d ago

yeah right enslaved sucked, repetitive combat, mediocre graphics, story was stupid as crap (especially the ending, MY GOD what the hell were they thinking). last time i check there is no such thing as an Heavenly sword 2.

LastDance2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

Having just looked at the E3 gameplay trailer - my thoughts were; Graphics were very poor and the art design and colours were BLAND BLAND BLAND - nothing stood out for me.

watch the trailer again and compare it to any other game from this generation - it looks bland like, Golden Axe Beast Rider bland.

Edit: I dont even like DMC games that much but that trailer even upset me.

I do blame Capcom, why the hell they give their IPs to other Devs in first place?

And about NT, Heavenly Sword was great and all, but there must be a reason of why they were kicked out or their partnership with Sony ended after just one game... waiting for *HS2 developed by Santa Monica Studio*

Combat felt a bit lagy, way behind the standards set by Byonneta.

"hurr fangirls durr"

Is that all you can say? You didn't play the older games so shut the hell up. You stand up on your soapbox and preach at us for disliking the unnecessary and unwanted change in a franchise we've all come to know and love, and you're acting like WE'RE the problem?

Bitch, we were here first. Anime Dante is how Dante is supposed to be. If you don't like it, don't try to change our franchise....go find something else that was actually made for your kind.

You've invaded a fanbase, people have every right to be pissed at you for defending NT, at NT for doing this and Capcom for handing it over to NT when there are other, more worthy devs out there both Eastern and Western.

Tired of this shit, you are not the fans of Devil May Cry. You are invaders and we want you OUT.

Also, you're on the losing side of the battle. Why would you want to be there in the vocal minority? I'm not trying to be mean but don't belong. Pick your battles more wisely.

gaffyh2692d ago

I have no problems with Ninja Theory, there games have been good, but DMC has a fanbase, and this game looks like it is ruining DMC. Dante looks nothing like his character, the fighting looks very bland, and the graphics are worse than DMC4.

If that's not bad, I don't know what is. I'm a DMC fan, and I'm definitely considering skipping this game until Capcom realize why they should have listened to their fans.

Bereaver2692d ago

I'm sorry but I must disagree with ghost. I loved Enslaved. It was interesting.

thaking1552692d ago

@ Quagmire, The reason people keep going off the saying that fans are pissed that Dante has black hair or no white hair, and that Ninja Theory are A holes because they (also Capcom) have not listened to a single thing the fans have said.

Starting off they did not need to start over and reboot the game because DMC 4 was alright but leave Nero out because he sucked and was pointless, I was excited to hear about Ninja Theory making DMC until I saw the 1st trailer and then this messy crap trailer. It's E3 bro, the biggest gaming show all year and you bring an terrible unpolished and unfinished video and expect the masses to fall in and love the game... UMM still got a long way to go. The only fangirls I see are the ones that are defending this game , Capcom and Ninja theory. People are mad because the quality of the game looks PS2 graphics at best. And like I said, I understand it's a work in progress but come on I remember when Devil may cry 4 concept video first came out and then the official DMC4 trailer came out and yup the trailer and gameplay was looking head and shoulders above this title.

Ninja theory will fail to please the fans again, they did it Heavenly Sword and Enslaved.

Kurylo3d2692d ago

wait a second did i see his hair turn white when he did his demon trigger or whatever in this video. Maybe they are making this game lead up to the point that his hair turns white?

Otheros002692d ago

Dante was BORN WITH WHITE HAIR. DMC4 looked better than this game and It came out before it. Shows how much NT Su*ks.

I've played a lot of action games and I enjoyed watching the trailer because of song and the idea of the story but the gameplay is weak.

Capcom's Asura's Wrath looks more fun than DmC

Bayonetta and Devil May Cry 3 have spoiled me and Ninja Theory needs to look at the best DMC + action games and go back to their offices and retry.

crxss2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

Ya I agree with you, Bayonetta and DMC3 are the best in the genre but I think this DMC's story will blow those two away cause let's face it those didn't have the greatest plotlines. The gameplay looks fun based on what I saw and I'm a huge fan of DMC3 and Bayonetta. Not sure if anyone else noticed that the gameplay was slowed during most of the trailer and if you take that into account the gameplay looks a lot better... Maybe if they showed it at normal speed or if people FF it @1.5 speed on their PS3's when the trailer hits the PS Store they'll be able to see it's true potential.

Baka-akaB2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

but then again no one played dmc and bayo for the story , but for the gameplay ... Nor did the games even pretended to do otherwise

To create of a plot based franchise fine ... but to do that on an existing one ? meh

Ghost2502692d ago

amazing, pshhh... that gameplay was alright at best. but everything else sucked. graphics, animations, character models, environments (last time i checked, since when in the hell was dante ever in Britain?). enemies are plain, dante looks like a straight rip off from twilight. no sir you are wrong. any real fan knows that this game has FAIL written all over it.

FACTUAL evidence2692d ago

Wow...this was the most mediocre shit I sall all week besides wiiu...DMC4 owns this.....

crxss2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

Kid if you knew anything at all you would know DMC4 was mediocre at best. If you're going to say anything "owns" this you mine as well say DMC3 owns this since it's the best in the series.

Plus the Wii U was actually pretty impressive and most would disagree with you.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI2687d ago


The point was that if it's worse than DMC4, there's A HUGE problem. Why compare it to 3 when you can use a fresh example that still proves the point?

Gamer_Z2692d ago

The only reason I would have gotten this game is because I wanted to play as the original Dante (he’s awesome) not some poser wannabe emo kid.

Looks like DMC with Dante turned into a black haired Anorexic Kid. -__-

sikbeta2692d ago

you forgot, girlie emo XD

crxss2692d ago

Have you ever seen RocknRolla? Go watch it. They're trying to use Johnny Quid's punk rocker style that's become popular recently in London to portray the new Dante.

darkdoom30002692d ago

No-one wanted a british dante.

I like the japanese inspired crazy dante.

elbeasto862692d ago

I thought it looked pretty badass. Same crazy over the top combos and moves.

Also, let's not just completely discard the disclaimer in the beginning of the trailer stating that this was still a work in progress.

Redempteur2692d ago

Sorry at this point in develloppement you have to have a vision of what you want to achieve with your battle system.

"work in progress" every game at E3 are work in progress that escuse is lame.

elbeasto862692d ago

Right and with this trailer it's clear that they have an idea of how they want it to work. They probably just mean that it needs tweaking and will most likely look better by the next trailer. The game is still not schedule to come out until Q4 of 2012, so there's still alot of time to make changes.

I guess I'm just saying that it's still too early to judge. Alot can change in a year and a half.

sasuke992692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

the gameplay was just ok average at best...everything else FAILED bid time the embarrassingly lame character and enemy design, the clunky animations the horrible visuals EVERYTHING, I have seen trailers for games in early pre-alpha looked soo much better than this

FLOP is written all over this game!

Redempteur2692d ago

teh gameplay looks slighty better than i expected and i expected the worst ..

it seems average at best for now.. sorry but i need more than that.

Still not impressed.

it's missing a lot but that trailer seems more DMC than the horrible first trailer apparition.

Baka-akaB2692d ago (Edited 2692d ago )

really average ...

It even looked like ripped from the far better American MC Gee's alice games .

Seriously guys do you remember ever being underwhelmed by a dmc trailer ? Even for dmc4 ?

I dont , and yet here we are with one that is very bland . Simply too cluttered, uninspired, and boring . and why was the camera cutting like it was during the fighting , with an effect even worse that in Enslaved ? Please tell me I wasn't the only one to notice that? .

I have one positive thought however ... at least the game is full of colors ... and not some emo goth fest
