Don't give a shit about the original or the reboot.

After playing the demo a few times on the hardest difficulty, I can say its not for longtime fans like myself looking for the the challenge 1 and 3 had, the combat feels pretty good but the enemies are stupid as hell. Also the devil trigger is lame.

You throw a combo system that allows you to air jiggle and pull off a stinger does not just make it dmc.

air jiggling.

Really looking forward to this game. Between this and Rising, pretty good time for character action games.

Some of the fan reactions... embarrassing. I'm not usually like this but I'm totally hoping it does really well so I can lick their salty tears Cartman style.

That's not directed at people who don't necessarily dig the gameplay, I can get changes throwing things off and them not liking it. I was that way with Ninja Gaiden 2 for example. How actively some hate it though is embarrassing.

And holding up the design of Dante like it's some masterpiece. I read someone say his old look is as iconic as Mario... LOL. Also acting as if the story to the old games was anything more than fluff and nonsense.

Sometimes, people act as if new entries to a franchise ruin everything and I have to question if there was anything good there before then or if people are just that crazy. It's like Star Wars. The prequels were junk but I still love the franchise for the original movies. That can't be taken away. Maybe the next ones they make will be bad too but oh well to me. I'll have the classics.

I like Nina Theory and beat all these games a bunch of times (went through 4 six times). 
 
If this is bad I'll DIE.  A little.

For those wondering why older fans are in general really don't like how this game is turning out, think of it this way, imagine the people behind Mortal Kombat decided it was time for a change. So, they give it to Aksys, the people behind Blazblue and they turn it into a completely different type of fighter. Old fans complain and Aksys tell them to shut up and deal with the changes. Hell, I'm sure Jeff would be up in arms about that and 99% of the GB community as well. Try to see this from the perspective of long time fans of the series.

At this point? Indifference.

I can't wait for it. Stylistically I am looking forward to a western take on the franchise, cause that's all this is really. The core concepts are pretty much the same, just are from a British perspective rather than a Japanese one. The game also just looks much nicer than the previous entries, way more colourful and interesting than just generic gothic demon castles. Also after going back and playing 1,3 and 4(cause fuck 2) the dialogue is just as bad as it seems to be in this new one, it's incredibly cheesy and forced.

In terms of gameplay, the demo makes it seem like it's much easier than the other entries. I think this is partly just so they can reach a broader audience but it's also just the refining of the gameplay. I mean I found DMC4 to be far easier than 3 or 1 on Normal just because the combat felt more responsive and thus easier to dodge/combo/cancel. DmC feels much more modern in the general controls than the PS2 games, in my opinion the easiness comes from the game making it much easier to access the tools you need to play better than it did before.

I have been a long time fan of the series, not a super hardcore fan who plays Dante Must Die mode, but I played 1 around it's release and have beaten every other game and I can't understand the who feeling betrayed argument. Sure if they called it DMC 5 and did all these changes maybe I would be a little annoyed that they are making such a drastic shift. The game isn't DMC 5 though, it's a reboot so it is supposed to be very different from the others while maintaining the core themes of the game. Look at Bioshock Infinite, same series name but stylistically it's much different from 1 and 2 yet it seems to be keeping the Bioshock spirit in it. Just because the game is called Devil May Cry it doesn't mean it has to be just like the others. There is a reason Capcom gave the game to Ninja Theory, they wanted something fresh and new and that's what we are getting.

I tried the demo and was really, really bored by it. I didn't even finish it. I think I'll pass.

The head designers at Ninja Theory have insulted long time fans like you in the past, saying that they should suck it up and take the changes without a word of criticism, while also insulting the same classic games they loved to play in the past that they're making a reboot out of. I think that's where the whole "feeling betrayed" argument stems from.

So I've had Devil May Cry 4 sitting in my Steam library for a while but never really played it past the 2nd mission just because there's been better games to play. I'm playing it again now to see if I enjoy it enough to get some idea if I would enjoy the new DmC. I have to say I'm warming up to the combat system, not as button mashy as I remembered/imagined it.

Do you guys think if I like Devil May Cry 4 I would like 3 and DmC? The preorder on Steam would get me DMC3 for like $10 in addition to DmC, is that worth it?

DMC3 is probably the best game in the series, but the PC version is an abomination. If you can't get it on console, I wouldn't bother with it at all. I am personally going to avoid DmC like the plague since it appears to have systematically ignored everything I love about the series.

@Crysack: Thanks for the info, I did hear that DMC3 was good but didn't know that the port was terrible. I'll skip DmC then, at least probably until the next Steam sales :)
