If DmC was a new IP, I wouldn't give a fuck. But it's not. It's actively destroying a brand that I like. And worse still, people with credibility who haven't played the brand are giving it power. DA:O was destroyed by DA2, and the same thing is going to happen here.

Just to let you know, it has been mentioned at least a few times, especially when Bayonetta came out that most of the GB crew never really cared for the DMC games...so you'd rather have one of them play it? Cause in regard to the GB review, it was probably either going to get played by someone who had no experience with the old games or a negative experience with the old games.

If they hate the genre, fine. I can't hold that against them. I love them, they don't.

But saying that this revitalizes the series that was healthy before by tearing apart everything that made it good in the first place is just irresponsible, and destructive to an audience that wasn't exactly fucking small. The series prior to this had thr... four games. You don't get tw... three sequels by being a niche audience that can't support development costs.

It's exactly the same train of thought that leads to "all stealth games were bad, Mark of the Ninja has saved the genre from itself". Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck you.

SURPRISE, IT'S ACTUALLY THE KINECT 2

4 more years, 4 more years.

It's a spectacle fighter where you do all sorts of insane shit like air combos and dashing and string together 300 hit combos through like 9 enemy encounters.

Think Bayonetta.

GTA4's story was bad. Niko's story made absolutely no sense. He'd constantly bitch about not having money, and then you'd cut back to the game where you have millions of dollars. He'd bitch about wanting to get out of that life, and then shoot dozens of people for a couple thousand dollars.

How the fuck do you go from Scarface and Boys in the Hood to... that? I honestly thought that, at the end of it, the credits were going to roll over an American flag while music played for all the trite edgy bullshit it was trying to pull.

Oh the game where I spend the whole time trying to get out from under being framed for the murder of a single cop by MURDERING HUNDREDS OF COPS had a story that made more sense. Okay then.

Yeah but San Andreas let me fly a fighter jet upside down and hit old ladies without trying to tell me I'm scum because apparently Rockstar actually feared Jack Thompson and was trying to placate the disbarred son of a bitch.

Dude what are you even talking about? What?

I'm going to just leave this because it's going no where in a DMC thread.

Imagine that Halo 5 comes out, and suddenly Master Chief doesn't wear a helmet. Imagine that he cries about his dead wife, and isn't a Spartan at all. He spends the entire game shooting street thugs, with no grenades or melee. Imagine Microsoft actually trying to market that game as Halo 5, simply for brand name recognition. Fans would be outraged, and justly so. That game would be shit on for not being anything even vaguely resembling a Halo game.

GTA4 was nothing like the previous 6 GTA games, and DmC is nothing like the previous games, barring DMC2, which absolutely nobody fucking liked and most people disavow knowledge of the existence of that piece of shit.

If DmC was a new IP, I wouldn't give a fuck. But it's not. It's actively destroying a brand that I like. And worse still, people with credibility who haven't played the brand are giving it power. DA:O was destroyed by DA2, and the same thing is going to happen here.

I think Giant Bomb is doing OK

Show me where Uncle Dante touched you.

Uncle Dante keeps saying he has a joystick...

He asked me to pull his Devil Trigger.

He... Never mind, I think this will suffice.

DAMMIT UNCLE DANTE STOP PERVERTING MY SOUL WITH YOUR UNDIVIDED DWDHWHDCFWQEFBERFE

Oh god how could Ninja Theory dare ruin this series storytelling.

Because it's two different styles.

DmC is not the same style. It's like how GTA4 did a complete about face and suddenly tried to be super dramatic and realistic when the previous games had you flying a fucking fighter jet upside down and smashing into old ladies.

DMC is supposed to be a DUMB B movie. Not a dumb B movie.

Oh it's supposed to be DUMB, not dumb. Got it.

And cut it out with the GTA IV story being bad comments. Game was well reviewed based upon it's story for a large part and sold more than 25 million copies. It's not a problem.

this is hilarious http://boards.4chan.org/v/res/171480986

Shit, that's perversely hilarious.

so that's where all of the DMC fanboys live!

I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN

I will never get how people can get this angry at a review for a fucking video game

See, this is the fucking problem.

A group of people like what a game is, and want more of it? Entitled fuckwads. Turn the game from a spectacle fighter into another shitty God of War ripoff just like Ninja Gaiden 3.

Lord knows we don't have enough of THOSE fucking games.

You're not entitled for liking a game and wanting more of it. Hell, entitlement isn't even the issue here. The issue is that Brad gave a game five stars that a lot of people didn't like. Do you take issue with someone having an opinion that isn't yours on a video game?

If the answer to that is yes, then go to your room and ponder why someone else's opinion might actually affect you. Is it because you're insecure in your own opinion? Or is it because what you want isn't coming right now and you're angry that the world isn't giving you exactly the Devil May Cry game that you want?

...so maybe this does come back around to entitlement. Ah well.

I'm miffed because people who didn't like the original games made the new one, and people who didn't play the original games are reviewing this, and the people who review it have power on what gets made in the future. I loved Dragon Age 1. Dragon Age 2 was absolute dogshit. But the people who reviewed it gave it a good score, and surprise surprise Dragon Age 3 is probably going to be even worse. I loved Morrowind, hated Oblivion. Skyrim is even more like Oblivion. I loved Blood Money, I think Absolution might as well be called Splinter Cell because it's as far from a Hitman game as can be.

Yeah, I know it's fucking petty, but the games I do enjoy are being turned into games I don't enjoy, and the number of games I do enjoy grows smaller and smaller. These games aren't free. I don't get paid to play bad games. They don't get shipped to my door. I don't get to open boxes on camera and go "hyuk hyuk I never ran into any bugs". I'm tired of wasting money on shit and being told I'm a bad person for depriving these other shitbags who have the entire market catering to them and not wanting to gorge them even further. Fine. I'm a bad person. I don't want to settle and be told I'm entitled for having standards. You get your games, why can't I get mine? Why does "oh they wanted more money" have to end in me saying "oh gee of course my money is worth less than your money, obviously I must concede."

Are you... for real? I mean really, surely this is one long troll, right?

This is how it goes every goddamn time.

"I don't think the people making this have the faintest fucking idea what made the series good."

"Shut the fuck up, you just don't like his hair."

"Okay the producer has actively come out and said that he thinks the previous games in the series, which were acclaimed, were terrible."

"It's the superbowl, who cares about dialogue options?!"

"Okay the demo has come out and it's fucking awful. All the silly charm is gone and there's literally a scene where two characters shout "fuck you" for 30 seconds straight."

"Wait until you've played the full game!"

"Okay I wasted 60 dollars buying this piece of garbage, and it's fucking awful."

"Insert Resident Evil 6 quote here"

And people tell me I'm crazy for fearing for Dark Souls.
