I haven’t seen the trailer yet (I’ll watch it when I get home from work), but the screenshots already have me less than thrilled. Dante was fine the way he was. This just screams of the Bionic Commando treatment. Admittedly, I enjoyed the new BC, but not for its story and main character. DMC is fun because Dante is this silly, over the top guy, not because he’s a grim and gritty badass.
I honestly would not want Team Ninja’s frustrating shit in DMC. Capcom so far had a good idea of what increasing difficulty is and I don’t feel like having the fucking crows in the first level kick my ass. My personal opinion though.
Sadly I see all three of those happening. But which one will do it first…hmmm.
Basically. I guess Capcom’s designers realized that they couldn’t top what their old boys at Platinum games cranked out and decided to just start from scratch. With Ninja Theory.
It wasn’t horrid but yeah Nathan was lame in that game. Luckily you could use his Rearmed model and all became right with the world again.
Yeah the new BC should be tried by all. The swinging is done really really well and the hit and run style gameplay that comes out of that is rather exciting. Plus the soundtrack is beautiful.
Anyway, DmC looks like Fight Club, which looks like stupid. I’m not going to hate on Ninja Theory. It’s not their faults that Capcom pussed out on making a proper DMC5. It’s not even like the last game didn’t sell well or anything. And you do a reboot after putting regular Dante in the new MvC3? That’s like rebooting Okami so that Ammy is a werewolf or some shit.
Uh what’s this shit about Bayonetta? I would’ve bought this game despite every god-awful thing else. Change the title to ‘Heavenly Sword’ so we can shit on this game appropriately.
Watched the trailer… I think the visuals got a much-needed upgrade (DMC4, nice as it looked, resembled a PS2 game with more polys and HD)… not sure about the setting, obviously not feeling the character redesign. Knowing Ninja Theory, at least the cutscenes will be well-done… but uggh.
Not feeling this at all. Twilight Dante isn’t really needed. Hell the series doesn’t even need a reboot. At least not in look. I could understand in gameplay as DMC4 was pretty stale for the hype it was gaining upon it’s announcement. (just like RE5 and FFXIII and see how “meh” they turned out for how long they took?)
they say they want to grab the “Western audience” but we were already grabbed. I’m not sure where they’re trying to take this design direction though. The gameplay better be something or else they’re just digging a bigger grave for the series. Watch out guys, this might be DMC’s Next Gen DMC2.
oh and yea. Nice way to put DMC3 Dante in MvC3 only to announce DmC at TGS and completely oust the Dante everyone’s used to. Capcom still doesn’t get it.
I just vomited a little in my mouth once I saw the Trailer. Why Capcom!? WHY!!?? oh well here we go, where not gonna see a new decent DMC game intill this one bombs which would be like the next 6 years!
Main gripe there. I’m sure some of it stems from the fact that you’re not playing Dante most of the time too as some people didn’t like Nero. I didn’t mind him really. Don’t think he needed a God of War button though.
I also didn’t like the lack of extra costumes. But that’s more of a personal preference. Especially since 1-3 all had extra costumes then 4 just…doesn’t.
