I'd honestly rather play with the default. While I prefer the old design overall it does not suit the new Dante.

#3 Edited by SirOptimusPrime (1854 posts) -

I agree, 4 dollars for a skin is stupid.

Prediction: Everybody calls bullshit on this, shit-talks Capcom until they're blue in the face, and then buys the classic Dante skin :)

#5 Posted by AngelN7 (2959 posts) -

A Million years already!? whatever I don't think those "fans" would care about this, certainly not pay for it.

#6 Posted by Fobwashed (1625 posts) -

This feels like a slap to the face of all the people who were complaining about the look of the new Dante.

I find it to be a genius move on Capcom's part.

#7 Posted by LikeaSsur (1430 posts) -

Can you really blame them? If nothing else, this is capitalism at its finest.

#8 Posted by GunstarRed (4730 posts) -

This is fine. Now if only there was a patch to make the combat like the older games.

#9 Edited by handlas (2545 posts) -

lol...

He looks really really dumb ingame. I got it for preordering on PSN. It came with 3 skins aside from the default. Other than "Dark Dante" they are bad looking. I would definitely not spend 4 bucks on it. And the Dark Dante is basically just him with white hair and blue clothes.

The skins menu also says you can unlock skins by beating the game. Anyone know what that is? Are they just weapon skins?

#10 Posted by Ramone (2931 posts) -

That's pretty funny.

#11 Posted by MikeGosot (3227 posts) -

I think it should come with the game, because this is kind of overpriced. But hey, if the new look bothers you so much...

#12 Posted by Phatmac (5686 posts) -

Nice move, Capcom.

#13 Posted by Hitchenson (4682 posts) -

Heh, oh Capcom, so sleazy.

And it's only one costume out of the first costume pack (yes, first). But it's also the best of the bunch, unless you really want "Neo Dante," I guess.

But yeah. A million years or 320 Microsoft Points, whichever comes first.

Doesn't the DLC have less to do with Capcom but more to do with NT?

#16 Posted by TooWalrus (12973 posts) -

...I'm good, thanks.

#17 Posted by DeF (4692 posts) -

I don't get why anyone would buy SKIN PACKS for any game.

#18 Posted by Oldirtybearon (4282 posts) -

pretty sure that's the skin you unlock for beating either Son of Sparda or Dante Must Die difficulty.

I know you get his DMC3 outfit on one of those.

#19 Posted by deskp (436 posts) -

I see no problem with this. Good on them for making the skin! this is a perfect case of asking people to 'put the money where their mouth is'

They should've just made that really expensive. Like 4000 Microsoft point, cause fuck you fans.

Asking people to pay extra for something that should honestly be in the game on the disc and not as DLC isn't telling people to put their money where their mouths are. Funny thing being if is correct, the classic Dante skin is already in the game and can be unlocked, in which case, this is just Capcom/NT asking for money to unlock something early.

#23 Posted by WickedCobra03 (2100 posts) -

Haha. I feel like they are trolling hard. Seriously though, I don't know like anything about the new DMC game, but from the screens, new Dante looks like emo 14 year old high school kid is pissed cause he didn't get extra dessert from the lunch lady.

I will probably play, but I will wait until it drops to like 30 or 40 maybe. I have too much to play still from last year and such anyway.

Well, the SSF4 ones are pretty awesome like this one above in particular
#25 Posted by AlexanderSheen (4669 posts) -

It's a skin pack... a skin pack. Not like the end of the game or any actual story content, so why the fuck anyone cares? Don't like it don't buy it.

#26 Posted by Azurath (273 posts) -

Pretty cool, the game itself seems fucking radical, and this just makes older fans happy.

Good stuff Capcom.

#28 Posted by _Chad (957 posts) -

I like how people get pissed when there's DLC costumes. Nobody is forcing you to buy it.

I wouldn't think so considering Capcom releases costume packs for pretty much all their games so this should come to no surprise to anyone.

This sucks but apparently makes money, people bitch about it yet it gets bought. If there is anyone to be mad at this point it is the people who buy it, if it bothers you that much.

Once upon a time things like this were unlocks in the game.

#31 Posted by Rafaelfc (1282 posts) -

I only get annoyed because it's something I could be unlocking by playing the game... instead we get a bunch of useless concept art as unlocks.

And I don't ever pay for skin packs, seriously how dumb is that.

#32 Edited by GaspoweR (2510 posts) -

@DeF: Yes. Mecha-Zangief. This is from a costume pack from more than 2 years ago. The ones that have been made by mods on the PC version are also pretty awesome like this one:

Also costumes made by the mod community on the PC version are FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

#33 Posted by Village_Guy (2405 posts) -

Ha, how many people will be pissed off at this and then buy it.

This has some smell of horse armor.

#34 Posted by bartok (2371 posts) -

Oh Capcom! Anything for a few extra bucks. At least DmC is fun as hell so I forgive you.

#35 Posted by Blimble (302 posts) -

Remember when stuff like this was a hidden extra that came with the game? That was nice, now this is common practise

DLC is really getting out of hand

Yep, very true. They have DLC costume packs for all their current gen fighting games but at the very least you pay for 4 dollars for like 4 or 5 costumes (I guess) and not just one costume. They also have big costume packs for all characters that are about 18 bucks.

#37 Posted by believer258 (11043 posts) -

Man, this shit should be something that you unlock, not something that you pay for.

I might get strangled for this, but here's an idea: Why not make it to where this stuff is an unlock like in the old days (not a fucking MMO type unlock where you play five hundred hours and get a special pair of boots) but a more traditional unlock like "get all of the achievements" or "beat the game on hard in less than five hours" or something.

OR

Have the option to buy your way to it, but with the caveat that there's some sort of notification that you bought it but didn't earn it.

For me, personally, I could buy Super Amazing Wagon Adventure for less and have more fun.

#40 Posted by Mikey2D (217 posts) -

Hey guys - remember when games used to unlock stuff after you completed them?

Okay so some stuff unlocked on completion of this game (least I believe so - I haven't played it). But seriously bad form that the 'classic' Dante is locked behind paid content.

#41 Edited by Klei (1768 posts) -

I'd rather pay for skins than paying for '' MP advantages that unlocks everything '' like in the recent ACIII. That's plain wrong in my books.

#42 Posted by J12088 (430 posts) -

That's a little cheeky. Can't say it surprises me though.

They aren't. You get a "Whie Haired" Dante in his DmC attire for beating the game and you can also unlock "Coatless" Dante and by beating DMD you get "Super" Dante which like previous games allows for infinite devil trigger. The other costumes aren't part of that.

You know whats funny...if it was like the older games, people like you would have complained that they hadnt changed it. Its a new game, from a new dev, dosent make it any less of a fun game to play, get over it.

And what? The combat is the best thing about this game. Flowing combos together with the different weapons and pushing and pulling enemies with your hook is a lot of fun.

Oh man, Capcom sure loves to twist the knife, huh? It would have been nice to have this as an unlock for beating the game once, but I guess why bother when you can make some cash on silly little cosmetic features that were standard in previous games.

Anyway, the Classic Dante skin looks really odd because Dante's face wasn't designed with that hair in mind, which looks like it was very hastily modeled and stapled onto his skull at the last minute. The DMC3 coat turned out pretty nicely though, especially in motion, and I greatly prefer it to the grungy attire Dante schlubs around normally. And the hair isn't so bad when you aren't forced to sit there and stare at how dumb it and all the faces in DmC look. Looks a hell of a lot better than the two other skins, at least.

Oh dear. I was joking. I've been pretty vocal about the game in the impressions thread. I think the combat in the new game is fantastic.

#50 Edited by MildMolasses (3194 posts) -

Ok, upon doing a little digging into the Gamefaqs pages, only the 360 version is listed as having the original Dante skin be unlockable. The only unlockable listed for the PS3 version is "Super Dante"mode.

Can anyone confirm that they unlocked this in the PS3 version of the game?
