[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="800"] Run DMC[/caption] As much as I love Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry, I have to admit that the game wasn’t perfect. Maybe it was the idea to split combat into two halves of light and dark that didn’t always gel well. Maybe it was the fact that a younger Dante meant that attacks felt heavy, awkward and nowhere near as graceful as they could have been when compared to previous iterations. Mind you DmC: Devil May Cry is still a great game, but one with issues. And those issues are getting ironed out for the remastered version.
There’s a new version of the 2013 action masterpiece DmC: Devil May Cry coming out on console, which features all kinds of polish and rather terrific new visuals. Or to be more precise, PC graphics on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Still, I’m kind of impressed with what Ninja Theory has cooked up.
Pack away the tinsel, put the Christmas tree away and ship grandma back off to the retirement village, because 2014 is over! And what better way to ring in the new year, than by taking a gander at all the lovely games headed your way? Let’s get this show on the road!
I don’t think words can express just how much I adore Devil May Cry. The Xbox 360 and PS3 generation gave us two superb outings in the franchise, with Devil May Cry 4 giving players control of a new demon hunter and DmC Devil May Cry rebooting the series under the guidance of developer Ninja Theory. Two fantastic, incredible games. And now they’re headed to the latest generation of consoles.
Wow, almost halfway through our list of games that defined this generation in gaming. Well, maybe not defined, but they certainly made us happy. Remember, no metrics, scores or sales used to make this list - just a lot of bickering and threatening of each other's wellbeing.
Oh yeah, moving up the list now! Again, our disclaimer - this isn't based on metrics, scores, or sales. Rather, these are 100 games and franchises that made us happy or intrigued. Also, we are a weird bunch and you may not agree with our taste. Sucks to be you.
It’s that time of the year again where game publishers begin posting results, and Capcom has some of those numbers to share. After shifting almost five million units, you’d think that Resident Evil 6 would be a reason to pop open some bubbly, but nothing could be further from the truth for that now maligned franchise, as Capcom has marked it as an official disappointment.
DmC: Devil may Cry is not a hardcore action game with nefarious puzzles. It’s a somewhat more simplified experience where the combat is a touch easier and slicker, the characters are more flawed than ever and the world around them is less fantastical and more troubled.
It’s also a game that puts previous instalments in the franchise to shame, because of those decisions, and gives fans a better Dante in the process, something that Capcom could never do.
Ninja Theory’s DmC was released yesterday, to critical acclaim. It currently stands with a rather impressive Critic score of
89 86 on the review aggregator. As you’d expect, given the “fan” outrage, its Metacritic user score is less than favourable, at a rather paltry 2.9 – showing once again how entitled crybaby whiner gamers can be.
Ninja Theory’s westernised reboot of Capcom’s stylish hack-and-slash Devil May Cry has been pretty divisive. Long time fans aren’t particularly enthused about Dante being an angsty, emo teen. Their bitching and moaning seems to have all been for naught though; it seems the reboot hasn’t divided critics who’re full of praise for the game. Here’s what reviewers had to say.
Holy hell! Heavenly Sword and Enslaved Developer Ninja Theory’s Devil May Cry reboot is out next week! We’ve been pretty excited for the game and it nearly, nearly slipped by us…under the radar. Yup, the same DmC that caused huge fan outrage when it was initially announced will be upon us next week…and word is, it’s really, really good!
The release date for DMC - Devil May Cry for PC, PC specs, some PC screenshots and other PC details have been announced. Master Race, assemble!
To say that DmC has had a rocky ride in it’s development cycle so far, would be an understatement. The reboot from Capcom and Ninja Theory hasn’t exactly been warmly received, with numerous folks decrying the visuals of the game. But after the demo that just landed for it, it’s safe to say that in the case of DmC, looks most certainly do not count.
Hey, who wants some DLC for a game before it’s even out? And who thinks that this is a great idea? Well, if you happen to be a game publisher whose name rhymes with kaching-com, then we might be in business. The upcoming Devil May Cry reboot has it’s fair share of pre-order bonuses, and if you don’t plan on taking part in the early adoption, well then screw you and hand over some cash for this content!
Dammit 2012, end already! I’m eager for the new Devil May Cry, and even if you hate the new visual direction that the franchise is taking with this reboot, the gameplay looks like a rock-solid experience that should please even the most jaded fan. You know what else might also please them? A set of difficulty options that will make the game harder than month old fruit cake, that’s what.
