Yeah, theories. Not actual facts. We don't hate DMC for the sake of hating. We hate it because of all the shit they show and tell us about DMC.
Everyone that says that the game will explain Dante's white hair. You fail, he and Vergil had them since they were kids. Check DMC1 again.
@Omega Even if you don't take into consideration dante looks ... the mood of the game isn't the same. Hsword and enslaved have very loose controls simple fighting mecanics and input lag something unnacceptable for anyone accustommed to SSS combos in previous DMC titles. and that's why i think this game is a joke.
I think the devil may cry series need to return to its roots, preferably like dmc1, which in my opinion is the best in the series and dmc3 coming second. Not only did dmc1 focus on action and variety but it had an intense storyline incomparable to any other devil may cry games. It needs that resident evil feel to the series like the original had.
If you check my latest comment history, it's almost everything about the latest DMC. I found unforgivable that the game will be 30FPS (with screen tearing) and unresposive clunky control. In the previous comment I was only mentioning that Dante & Vergil white hair are a canon, they had them from their birth. So, storywise, Ninja Theory idea is epic fail. I can't imagine they will step on something so iconic so easily.
Just don't drag us to open our arms too though.
I love the new look Of DmC as well as the art direction. Can't wait to play it!
Same here man. Haters gonna hate.
the game looks fun and great and the new western style is great ninja theory never disappoints
Yeah...DmClooks like a lot of fun. The play mechanics seem a bit more fluid, and the graphics looks appealing too; but I don't know how come every don't like it. well Personally, I don't like Capcom and how they do business; but if a game looks great especially if it by capcom, i m not going to dislike it just because I hate the game developer. I keep it real!!! Good to know that I m not the only who likes Dmc.(smile)
What's with the dislikes man there's a pissed DMC fan here also agree jacksheen capcom screws everything great about them( sonic, megaman, etc)
The new Dante with white hair transformation looks like an albino!
First off, what's rational about their irrational reasoning for changing Dante's looks? Secondly, your theories amount to nothing in the face of no facts. (I seem to recall that it's a reboot instead of a prequel, but who knows what the truth is now.) Third, as Otheros said, it's not hating for the sake of hating. It's not like non-fans are complaining about Dante's new look. These are the FANS who have problems with it, as they have every right to. This is valid hating. And it's the sort of thing good developers should pay attention to.
They had white hair since they were kids come on! We played every single Devil May Cry game for hundreds of hours and we have the right to complain.
Dantes hair is a different colour!? THIS IS A BIG DEAL THAT RUINS THE GAMEPLAY! EVEN THOUGH I DONT KNOW WHY ITS A DIFFERENT COLOUR YET OR HOW IT FITS WITH THE STORY IM GONNA COMPLAIN ABOUT IT LOL
Are you fuckin' serious man? Why don't people seem to understand the main concept of people getting mad. Sure, it's Dante's look being a bit different (and it's not only the hair)... But assuming you haven't played the series, looking back at the series, then looking at the newest gameplay trailer reveal a little while ago, it makes you think: WTF have they done to DMC?! Seriously, it looks nothing like the previous installments and I'm rather disappointed. I will state that the game as a whole look "halfway decent" but looking at NT's track record, and the current progress of DmC, I don't see any positives arising thus far. :/
Crack addict. The new Dante is a crack addict.
That explains it all. The supposed "Devil/White hair trigger form" is actually Dante as his normal self. But his hair turns black when he does crack, which explains why he looks like a druggy in this reboot.
They should have made this shit a stand alone game. Its nothing like devil may cry that I grew up with. To me they are just using the name to sell.
Exactly my point... I'm a huge DMC fanboy and I've played every single one, adding 100+ hours into them... and DMC3 being my all time favourite videogame. This new "Reboot" does look like a half-way decent videogame, but attaching the DMC title to it pisses me off into thinking they're just slapping on the name for the money.
30 fps, when it should be 60 fps, unreal engine which is not suited at all for this type of gameplay. Not to mention the combat in Enslaved was horrible! It was repetitive and not fluid at all. Sure Ninja Theory is good at doing stories, but DMC has never been about story. It's always been about fluid frenetic empowering and challenging gameplay, something Ninja Theory has yet to prove it can deliver. I will admit the newest trailer was an improvement over the reveal trailer, but all I have to say is look what Capcom allowed to happen to Bionic Commando. I will hold my final judgement until I can play the game, but right now I am not at all pleased and based on Capcom lately I have very little faith in them delivering a quality product that is representative of DMC as a whole.
ninja theory is a great developer that has games getting better better and less underrated and i support them and believe they are making a great game
now this a great article kudos for DANIEL PATTEN. i thought the same as you when i first saw the trailer, BUT i thing we are just fooling ourselves. i really wish that capcom have not killed the story of the previous games, because of they idea of "reboot". i think most of the develeopers does not know how to make a constant series. because when they are out of ideas...voila!! REBOOT!!!!!! imagine about our lives, if we at some time mess the things up... or we just get bored about ourselves, what?? we kill ourselves and... REEEBOOOOOOOOOT.
Nothing could get me to buy this turd of a game.
