    With this in mind I really had to think about what I objected to. It wasn't the story, because I think the story could actually be interesting. Despite what was said in this thread, Dante isn't "30+" he's a demon that's hundreds of years old.

    lol wut? where did you get that from. dante is half demon, and ages like humans to our knowledge, unless i missed something in the dmc1 and 2 story line. hes practically immortal it seems. maybe at some point he stops aging, but i dont know anything about dante being hundreds of years old. which doesnt matter, because fact of the matter is, his mature character that was last seen in dmc4 is outdated to them, and they wanted a reboot.

    the more i watch the trailer, im over the emo thing. i dont like that he doesnt fit his coat well though. :/ but whatever. gameplay def needs to be faster then dmc4, or im going to have a fucking hissy fit. i like that the game seems darker. i dont know if i like that his main weapon, his sword has transformable properties, because i see where they are going with that and we'll see how it plays out, but i was content on his sword just being a sword and not having to be some multi tasking weapon that can grapple things, turn into a spear, ect.. but it could be fun

    Remember that Dante was supposed to look ugly as fuck in DMC4, then they changed the design back to something familiar? It might happen again.

    It won't because Capcom wants a look for Dante that "appeals to the western audience", aka the same rough looking white guy we've seen in every western action game ever created. It doesn't help that the new Dante looks like emo Prince.

    ^Really? :lol: And by the way, just cause Dante hit his 30s doesn't make him an old man. I'd love to see him with a beard carrying around twin shotguns and a laser sighted sword. Anyway...

    found the real Devil May Cry 5 right here. Or maybe it's the sequel to God Hand?

    Yeah, as a long time fan of the Devil May Cry of old (which isn't old at all) I feel this reboot is a complete waste of time. I -liked- just about everything the series offered, except for 2. Dante and Vergil were awesome designs, had over the top attitude, and as others have stated, hell, the entire series touched the western audience just fine!

    And I'm probably in the minority, but I -really- liked Nero, almost more than Dante and Vergil. He was a pissed off kid, with an unstated connection to Vergil and Dante. His moves had flare, yeah, but they were tempered with a touch of righteous fury. Felt great punching the hell outta things.

    I can't get behind the... Christ, this just looks like Twilight. Poor Dante.

    Oy. I really hate Capcom for even letting Ninja Theory touch this series, after seeing this. Then again, I guess they felt they hit a dead end with where the story took them. That's disappointing, let me tell ya. I liked the canon as it existed, as well as the art style, music and direction. Well, at least there's still God of War for awesomeness.

    Well there has to be a reason Dante looks like this, that's a part of the story. But the appearance might change up a bit before release.. hopefully so he looks less like Twilight guy on freebase.

    Here's where I am on it.

    This is and was an unnecessary reboot to the franchise. They could've easy let Ninja Theory do something similar instead of just name dropping because Capcom gave their permission.

    This proves that Capcom and Platnium need to kiss and make up. Same with Arika. Let them make Viewtiful Joe, DMC, Okami, God Hand and EX the way they should be by the people that put their energies to creating these franchises.

    As far as DmC goes, show me some gameplay so I can love it or hate it with justification.

    DMC2 isn't as bad as everyone said it was. I still think it was a decent game it just came with a lot of shell shock IMO.

    Hopefully the haters are wrong. It's all in the hands of Ninja Theory and Capcom now.

    Nothing about this Dante screams ''Rough looking Western Guy''. If he looked like Kratos or Snake I'd be disappointed but not disgusted. Instead he looks like an vegan emo.

    Dante is fine as he is.

    GAY, Nah j/k. I agree, Dante is one fly ass motherfucker lol.

    This is not DMC. Seriously, no sick over the top action with god-tier matrix style cutscenes? Dante looking like that guy from twilight? Being made by Ninja Theory (LOL)? What?!!

    Please just rename the game and then I'll be able to look at this without disgust. Heavenly Sword was a good game overall but the fighting was CRAP! I will buy this regardless since my curiosity knows no bounds, but I am not happy or excited at all, which is rare when it comes to DMC announcements. Oh well, at least I have my Bayonetta.

    them saying they wanted to appeal to a western audience is just their way of saying, you emo, rebel fucks are spreading like wild fire worldwide, we see it, and want to make a game you can identify with

    I don't know how Ninja theory is gonna make this work. I honestly was not too big of a fan of Heavenly Sword. The pace of that game felt more GOW-ish than DMC. And honestly I think GOW is a decent series, but it's like the Mortal Kombat of the action game genre. It's really popular with blood and stuff but theres not much after the initial wow factor. I've played the DMC games over and over (except 2 and I didn't get to beat Dante's part on DMD because I had stuff come up) but GOW always felt like something to experience the level design at least once (which is DMC4's weakness).

    Plus when something just doesn't sit right with me. And honestly a whip sword again? Oh well, as long as I can do Devil Triggered Shoryukens I can have some fun.

    huh. its a 2 minute trailer. um, dmc4 tgs trailer isnt something to write home about at all either, and clearly doesnt look as good as the new dmc. i think we will get a new trailer soon, if not another one at tgs that includes gameplay action.

    This is what I never understood. As from last I remember, the western audience ate this game up while the East weren't all that crazy for it.

    Capcom, as usual, not listening to the fans too much.

    ha ha. but the only thing niggaz dont like is the fact that he has an emo haircut. thats about it. yeah, niggaz is missing dante, but for real other then that, whats to hate. never played heavenly sword cause i dont own a ps3, but the game still got good ratings for a ps3 launch game. i dont have any valid reason to hate on ninja theory, as anything is better then dmc4 :p

    dmc series shouldnt be too hard to copy and paste. take dmc3, make it pretty, add new weapons, awesome bosses, and story, bam you got a good game. i dont know, maybe i grew out of dante and hes missed, and i know he will be back,but i aint sweating it. dmc4 just left an awful taste in my mouth i guess, and i dont mind if vanilla dante falls back after that pile of shit game.

    well yeah, on an old ass game you can find plenty of trailers that make it look more appealing, but this tgs trailer below is the one i remember and was just bleh. some opera singing bullshit, random gameplay, and nero whining about more power.



    so yeah, there is no point in battling trailers in a game thats 3 years old, vs a trailer released 5 hours ago and the first one. lol

    I played all Dmc, even the crappy Dmc2, and i still think this is goingo to suck hardcore. Come on, another "Saw"-like scene? Dante looks like a rockstar addicted to coke, black hair (wft?), ridiculous clothes... I mean, Dante was supposed to have some nice gothic design right?

    Other than that, movement looks like crap, Dante's sword is something hum...strange...another wft reaction when i watched the trailer.

    From now on, i'm banning the word Capcom from my personal dictionary. Only CRAPCOM is allowed now.

    I just hope CRAPCOM doesn't kill 3S by putting stupid inputs like in ssf4...

    i noticed a lil homage to style changes in the trailer now. when he falls backwards off the roof he does the gunslinger air twist move into wall jump ala similar looking dash from trickster air dash. maybe just whatever to put in a trailer, or a subliminal hint towards styles still making a comeback.

    i mean, although i think he will stay that same style throughout the game, it is just a trailer. for all i know thats just some intro cut scene of him breaking out and escaping and his design might change after as the game progresses. that sounds overly optimistic considering what they are looking to accomplish in this game. :/ hey, i want dante with at least 25 extra pounds and a different haircut, but eh, whatever. sometimes you look like shit after getting tortured and beaten. lol!

    Well considering this trailer is new and fresh, by default it should be better and I should be excited as hell but I'm not because I doesn't give off the DMC feel. IIRC the responses towards DMC4 trailers was something like:

    "Who the fuck is Nero?"
    "Dante is EVIL, WHUUUT!"
    "Dante is getting his ass kicked, whoa"
    "oh snap, new guy can rev up his sword. Awesome"
    "Fine ass black chick :tup:"

    The trend of everyone hating a new game is not new, but there is usually a positive level of hype when it's annouced. This trailer has not accomplished that task in the slightest which leads me to believe that it will be ass (For now). If it ain't broke don't fix it.

    It's not even just the "emo" short black hair. He doesn't sound like Dante, and he doesn't even really act like him either. The action scenes look slow compared to any of the other games. Also there's something about the atmosphere (and Dante himself) that just looks less fun and more "grimdark".

    Yeah Devil May Cry 4 wasn't that great, but it wasn't that bad either. It was basically Devil May Cry 3: Lite with some stupid romance subplot thrown in. They didn't really ruin Dante as a character. He was a slightly more laid back version of DMC3 Dante. Nero was ok when he wasn't whining about whatever her name is.

    I just wish they didn't call this Devil May Cry. It could have been something else and I might've been more interested. Instead they opted to completely face lift something that didn't really need a face lift.

    well dmc4 was ass, and you liked that trailer more, soooooooo, yeah. im looking for gameplay, even better cutscenes, and lots of replayability over caring about dantes new makeover that much. like my man mickey rourke said in iron man 2. "dont get so attached to things. learn to let go" :p

    cant wait for gameplay vid. im still :/ on transformable sword, but like i said, could be fun.

    actually it's more on the fact it's being westernized when it doesn't need to be. No one's hating change. But having a unneeded reboot in a not so old series and then saying "we're making it more western for our fans" who already don't have a problem with the direction it was going, you're already got problems. Then add the fact that Ninja Theory's playing a big hand and it's a big chance it can jump the gun.
    I don't got those.

    Well everyone's opinion is defferent, but I suggest you play Heavenly Sword though. Just so you can get a taste of Ninja Theory's direction when it comes to hack 'n slash. Even though that game is old as hell, it's the only example to go on for that company and which is why I'm skeptical about how this game will turn out.

    I still can't except that fact Dante looks like a bitch though.

    well i'll play devils advocate and note that when he said, my name is dante, he didnt mouth that, so i dont know where that might fall in, in the game, but regardless i dont mind the deeper base voice of dante. this nigga is always constantly changing anyways, so that shouldnt affect people too much. :/

    yeah, that intro scene was a bit slower then trailer cinematics we saw for dmc4, but thats not even something im willing to care to judge on at this point. at the same time, dmc4 trailer gameplay looked a bit more faster pace then the actual game itself, so yeah. looks can be deceiving.

    the did research on what people are into and this is what fell out. grim darker batman and joker did very well. emo peter parker was the most interesting part of spiderman 3. everyones into twilight, tight pants, eccentric everything. saw 7 is about to come out, so people are still into that grim shit. this game trailer as its aiming to do is nothing more then a reflection of reality, which most people like more then anything. would crazy arkham asylum joker had been awesome in the dark knight, yessir, but unkept crazy homeless joker did even better.

    its understandable though that people are extremely reserved for this reboot. i get it. no big.
    You are clearly not a fan of Devil May Cry.

    ha ha. nah, im just not whining about it. its just a game. maybe im just old. i dont care that much, and am open to change as long as its good. dante could be a fucking trap for all i care, as long as bosses are bigger and more bad ass, cutscenes are galore and pretty, and gameplay is excellent. :p

    im just being open to the game, thats all, even though its cool to hate.
