I'm glad they are pointing the blame at the parents that don't recognize that little Timmy shouldn't be playing the games with the big M for MATURE (or whatever rating it is in their respective country) rating on it. The games, as has been said ad nauseam at this point, are not to blame. Nothing new here.
When people clearly state all the time that what they are articulating is just their opinion all the goddamn time. It's implied when you say: "I like game A" that you aren't speaking objectively; there is no need to state it outright. There is also a comment I saw yesterday that was speaking of a natively 720p game being displayed in 1080p and how that it would hinder the performance in "his opinion", which is not an opinionated criticism. That was annoying.
Curious from anyone who has picked this up how well 1 and 2 play still..... 3 I know i'll wanna play again, just not sure how much 1 and 2 have aged
(In reference to the original DMC on the Xbox 360 version) Controls, unsurprisingly, feel dated, and the cutscenes not running on the in-game engine look compressed and are of shitty quality. The fixed camera angles are annoying as hell for the first half hour or so but you get used too it. The good thing about this game being dated is that it does a lot of crazy shit few developers are willing to do these days- OH FUCK UNDERWATER ENEMY SKULLS AND LAVA SPIDERS. The combat is still easy to enjoy, and can be quite the challenge at times. As far as visuals are concerned, the games runs smoothly, and I haven't noticed any in-game dips in frame rate. So, all told, this is a fine collection to get if you're looking to re-play the original, but seeing as how I haven't played 2 or 3 yet, I can't say for sure whether or not those are any good. Having said that, it's hard to imagine that those could be of lower quality as they are more modern games than the original, and are bound to, at the very least, have the same quality.
