I got into DMC over the summer after the E3 of 5. Picked up the HD collection and played through 1-3 then through 4. Took me awhile to liking nero but he's a fun little fucker. I'd say 3 is my favorite of the original trilogy. I'm not gonna touch DmC because it screams edgy emo "i Hate you so much dad" . I can't wait to play Vee and fight big bro vergil.
Try Assault Spy. It looks like a lot of that games movelist is a tighter version of the reboot’s.

Sperged out and ordered the van edition of the game. Don't normally go for stuff that comes with toys and shit but it's DMC and I'm happy it's back proper.

But with DMC its never really been about the story,
3 was the only one with a really great story. Find it offensive Capcom thought Ninja Theory could do better.

There was an article last July where the Japanese producers took low key shots at them for various things, my favorite being they'd create demons looking all edgy in the blah western sense but no real function other than to "look cool".

Minor complaint but it is a bit jarring how vergil and dante have a different face, despite being twins.
Another reason as to why hyper realistic faces dont translate well in a dmc game.

Looking back, DMC2 probably would have been better received story-wise had they made it several games down the line instead of when they did.

In DMC2, Dante is noticeably older, has seen a lot of shit, and his earlier fun loving attitude would've been worn down pretty hard by all the shit he's been through.

The story had other flaws of course, like recycling Trish with a new character that basically was the same in concept, a flat, one dimensional overarching villain, and the story took itself too seriously for its own good as opposed to the first game, but I think what really took a crap on it was how Dante was portrayed.

With the benefit of 3 and 4 on top of 1, Dante's progression from wisecracker to a lot more emo makes some more sense, but at the time of DMC2's release his transformation from his DMC1 portrayal was pretty jarring.

Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne actually got some decent use out of DMC2 Dante, and the setting and circumstances made Dante's far more serious nature from DMC2 work a lot better, and the implications of the backstory set up a better reason for Dante to be much more serious, while stock DMC2 did not provide a decent character development bridge to justify things.

How long until the OAG army calls us cucks for liking this game for having an "ugly" Lady (who gets fucking naked) instead of the unbridled brilliance of some shitty GameMaker-tier H game that Billy D's shilling for this week. Also, I REALLY hope that the MTXs don't make this game grindy

still not as bad as the one that bitches about toxic masculinity
glad its doing well in terms of reviews other then the 3 dumb ones but if you guys wanna see a truley braindead review I got the stuff of horrors here
Open world games are only fun if you're a teen with time on your hands. Also doesn't work for things like DMC where it needs to be constant action.

RDR2 is proof there can be too much.

RE2 is and I'm sure DMC5 will be perfect for me when I need to juggle a full time job and family where I only get a few moments of downtime.

But I like RDR2 and Rockstar games(:_(:heart-empty:...but yeah, open world has zero place in a game like DMC. Open worlds usually only work in hack 'n slashes when it's combined with another genre like action RPG (i.e. Dragon's Dogma) or Zelda-like (i.e. Darksiders 2). Just let DMC be itself, the big reason DmC failed was because it was trying to have the combat of a Devil May Cry game while also having the story (and to an extent level design) of something made by Ubisoft (well that and Tameem sperging out at the DMC fanbase)

Trying to understand the Nero comment because he seems like Nero still and not an asshole like Donte.

Funny enough, some ex-IGN/Current EA Battlefront II writer is sperging on Twitter atm about how fun and lighthearted reboots characters are.

Of course there's a Kotaku article on DMC5 where the loser can't even just admitting to liking the damn game without layers of irony to hide it.

But I like RDR2 and Rockstar games
Hey if you like them then I'm happy for you.

Yeah, it was so lighthearted and happy when NotVergirl! shot a pregnant woman through the stomach with a sniper rifle. So wacky!

If they do, I will laugh in their face.

Having giving the official art a second lookover for DMC5, and while some of it still seems a tad off (though that's to be expected when you take animu style work and try to make it more realistic looking), it's overall not that bad.

If anything, Lady in particular is just following the same trend Capcom took with the RE characters in the latest games, replacing her borderline to outright anime look from the earlier games with a more realistic artstyle, and given she is supposed to be a lot older than her original appearance, she looks pretty age appropriate but still damn good looking for said age.

Mainly just me saying that to take the piss, I love both DMC3 and RDR1...in very different ways. Also, can't fot the claims that Dante is a sexist for killing female bosses or something

Oooooooooh....
His portrait does not make him look good in the slightest, why the fuck do all these journo get into eventually writing shit at some AAA studio.

I never read that guys articles but billy D comes off like a scumbag from just the first page of his thread, if anyone was to describe incels, it would be that guy. Out of the Autism bullshit that was pro GG ecelebs, how that guy somehow outlived the ending of the movement despite his click bait bullshit is baffling to me.

for the dmc the open world meme is a bad idea, but I could see a metroidvania like approach working fairly decently. I know DMC 1 was kinda like that but with shit like trickster's mobility and how you could work devil arms into envormental shit I could see abit more space working for a new game. that being said cosidering this game has 3 characters with a focus on combat I think the more linear design works well. just saying that if they put the systems of DMC 3 ownard into a new game with DMC 1's level design philosophy, I think it would fit like a glove.
