Enemy Crab - Gamer May Cry (New show from the SAFETY FIRST team)
I'm not buying DMC because:
-The overall changes to Dante and Vergil as characters is insulting
-It thinks having characters swear every other word and using the 'evil corporate world' cliche makes them more mature
-The project head is an arrogant douche
-I'm boycotting Capcom until Mega Man gets his due
-I have better things to spend my money on.
Gameplay was great otherwise.
Their (possessive) point, not there (location). I'm not trying to sound like a douche, I'm just trying to impart the correct usage.
How is not going to fly? Sure I was surprised at the character redesign, but I have faith in the developer making the game that they're not going to betray us and give us an unworthy title. People freaked out when Wind Waker was first revealed because it was cell-shaded instead of gunning for a realistic art style and it ended up being one of the best games in the Zelda franchise as a result. Based on what Ninja Theory has shown being at the helm this is going to be the kind of thing to give fans of the series a breath of fresh air.
DMC1 - fresh and new
DMC2 - a trainwreck with a director that his only previous experience was devloping a Sudoku game
DMC3 - an invigorating prequel that gave us new gameplay styles and more backstory to Vergil
DMC4 - a new character Nero with new abilities and enhanced and tweaked gameplay mechanics for Dante, like being able to change stances on the fly rather than FORCING you to pick one at the beginning of the level like in DMC3
After DMC4 what could they do to avoid the series from being stagnat and going down the road of mediocrity that God of War has been on for it's last 4 titles (yes I'm including the PSP ones)? A fresh start with a reinterpretation of the central themes is a great way to go if they can't find a MEANINGFUL way to expand the story after the events of Devil May Cry 4.
Give it a fair shake when it comes out, I know this is all subjective to opinion but I'm giving it a fair and balanced approach.
You're right about all of that except for the part where you said the writing and direction of Other M were the worst parts. Metroid is my fav franchise(own them all) and I had no problem with that stuff. The combat was fine, but only sadly not great. The worst part of that game was the fact that it had no sense of exploration like a Metroid game should. It was always telling you what to do and where to go. You can't get lost playing it. All the secret stuff to collect is super easy to find and get to. I beat it with 100% in 7 hours. Shortest, most boring (except maybe Metroid 2) Metroid game I ever played. That was the worst part about that game.
Nice PSA, mates...
I have never been a fan of Devil May Cry especially after Devil May Cry 4 recycled half the game for you. That said this reboot is much needed as it keeps the gameplay and adds in a fresh take on the world. The setting is amazing. If you are staying away from this reboot just because it isn't the same Dante and I'll be honest, the old Dante was just as annoying as the new one then make a fanfic of the old Dante.
love the moustache, Paul
Metroid: Other M was developed by Team Ninja (DOA, Ninja Gaiden, etc.), DmC is developed by Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword & Enslaved). Completely different companies with completely different design philosophies. And let's be real. Nintendo's own Yoshio Sakamoto wrote and directed Other M, which were the worst things about that game. The combat itself was fine.
I understand there point, but find that in some cases its just not going to fly like that.
I approve of this
You're really missing the point of this reboot and the point Paul and Steve were trying to illustrate
Instead of raging like i have for the past year ill be constructive ish. Right off the bad the development team has already screwed up Metroid.. Great game play, horrible characters they alter and mess with characters of established brands and make there own, while in some retrospects thats good.. But let me tell you of a little story called Devil May cry 4. It had a new character his name was Nero.. people didn't like Nero now people do.. but you know what really kept DMC4 alive? Dante was playable for 45% of the story. but "DMC" is not devil may cry... that is like calling Saint's Row, GTA San Andreas... They are similer but vastly different and this is manly due to Character Design, style, and artwork all which undermine the original Devil May cry.. If you have ever played a game from the Yakuza serious you will come to understand that game play isn't the only factor needed to be considered when buying a single-player experience only game for full price.
Also don't understand how a street punk gangster thug style Dante who looks like he cracked up on to much heroine is a character you want to "know what happens to"
I played the demo and the game went way up on my list quality wise, however i still find it inferior to Devil May Cry 3 and 4, and just really am not a fan of the character, not his appearance mind you, but the character.
that said, I'm actually modestly excited for the game now.
I really love this new series by you guys!
I MISSED YOU! (;
