CVG: Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry reboot is Capcom's hottest potato. A complete reboot and revamp of one gaming's most iconic characters was bound to attract its fair share of criticism, but ire has been much more than just apprehension.
i'd rather play with colgate toothpaste then play any three of those games
Okay...you do that...
Bayonetta is a better game than all Assassin Creed's put together. It's fact - AC's combat is garbage for babies that can't play real action games, the pacing is off and the whole series is unfocused as hell. And i say that as an AC fan. Bayonetta (and Ninja Gaiden Black) is simply above any action-centric games in the last 20 years gameplay-wise.
everything you just said is subjective . i could give two shits about the combat of AC. i don't go into AC expecting mind blowing combat dumbass. i'd rather have story, characters, atmosphere, progression, and good gameplay. unlike bayonetta which lacks all that imo.
DmC 'won't compete with Bayonetta' Yes its true. Bayonetta and maybe Bayonetta 2 much better.Platinum Games rulez! DMC weak.
Metal Gear Rising will probably be better than DmC... or even Bayonetta.
same devs, anything can happen, but Bayonetta still is one of the best hack n slashers I've played..
when i read the title "Dmc won't compete with bayonetta" my reaction was "you don't say". the new Dmc is just a metaphor for the shite capcom are producing(i am aware ninja theory are making new dmc). they have ignored their existing fans on multiple occasions and are damging their reputation by taking existing games and succesfull games they have produced and spoiling them. if capcom are to regain any credibility (from me anyways) they need to start a new sheet and produce new games because at the moment they arn't the good company they once were.
Then why the hell did you even bother?! If you're not aiming to be the best, what was the point? This is effectively admitting that it's a blatant cash-in.
To you it's a cash-in but DMC fans may have to disagree with you
I am a DMC fan. This is a cash-in.
DMC fans hate this game and the idiot developers who think they are god tier and better than everyone, everything, and their sister. This game looks terrible and nothing what DMC is suppose to be.
only ninja theory fans would disagree
Wait a minute... http://www.escapistmagazine...
Well NT lied.
Why did StealthBlitz get dissagrees with that link?
It might have something to do with the person quoted in the article being from capcom and not from Ninja Theory. Ninja Theory it seems just want to make the game they've been asked to make to the best of their ability, what capcom hopes to accomplish is something entirely different. While I expect DmC to be a good game, I doubt it will beat Bayonetta overall. It'll probably have a better told narrative and possibly a better story, but in terms of the combat... with half the frame rate it's not going to out-do Bayonetta on that front. It just won't have the fluidity or the complexity in terms of combos. The combat does still look solid however.
lol they must be out of their minds. no way in hell.
I don't get this article are they quoting their correspondent that had hands on with the game or Ninja Theory
Well... "It's simpler than Bayonetta, but DMC is never as dim-witted as God of War or Heavenly Sword or even Ninja Gaiden 3," said our previewer. It's pretty clear. What a great title for a preview article! /s No wait, it's actually a piece of "news" quoting the preview article. What the hell, CVG?
God Of War dim-witted? SMH. I take it as the previewer hasn't played many action games let alone good ones.
Calling God of war Dim-witted. Lost me at that
what genre needs saving?
Liked Bayonettas gameplay, albeit a little 'scatty' like most games in the genre. Hated just about everything else, characters, narrative, cut scenes, some of the worst music I've ever been subjected too, horrid. I'll pretty much take DMC for what it is, no doubt doing so without comparison to other games or it's previous titles, means I'll enjoy it more.
OMG bayonetta had the worst soundtrack everrrr. So dull, they should use heavy metal in the next installment. I played the game by muting the music
the bad music was the only thing, other things I liked :) but it wasn't as bad as I had to turn it off..
It looks a lot better than the older DMC games. Could be on the same level as Bayonetta.
I still don't understand why capcom believes this series needs a "reboot." What was so wrong about the old Dante and DMC4? Was it Nero that suddenly made the series distasteful?
Have you all realised that there are a ton of people disagreeing with longtime DMC fans but leaving no comments? Looks and smells fishy to me. I wont be surprised if Crapcom or NT are behind all the disagrees. The new DMC sucks for great a many reasons and although NT seem now be trying to make changes, it is a little too late. Should have quit when they could instead of dragging dead weight for all this time. Crapcom need to sort themselves out bigtime.
i think the most simple explanations is they got usually no argument beyond "you are just a bunch of haters" "Ninja theory rules" or " get over the look of dante" . Anyway i'm getting tired of talking about the game , i'll just admit , while i hate every aspects of it so far , except the use (abuse more like it) of colors , it still looks like a good game (kinda like ng3). However Devil May Cry this is not in any shape .
