I NEED MORE BONUS CHARACTERS! Devil May Cry 4: Special Edition is going to be a hard sell for Capcom. As good as the game is, it’s also a bit long in the tooth. It’s one of the very first big games to have hit the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 era when it was in its infancy, and its visuals have long since been overclocked to hell and back by the PC crowd. So it’s going to need something more than just extra frames per second. Like extra playable characters, which people like myself will easily pay plenty for. Look, she’s got a new hat!
But only in Japan. I NEED MORE PIZZA!
Devil May Cry 4. The best Devil May Cry. In the world, of all time and undisputed heavyweight champion of the franchise. It’s the Starship Troopers of Devil May Cry games and yes I am unbelievably biased when it comes to the game as I give objective reporting a Stone Cold Stunner and then defenestrate that neutral position. With DmC: Devil May Cry out in the world, it’s time for the fourth core game to get a chance in the spotlight. And that remaster will arrive June 18.
I NEED MORE REVIEWS POWER! I’ve loved the Devil May Cry franchise for far too long. I was there when it became more than just a spin-off of Resident Evil, and I was there when the game had its finest hour in Devil May Cry 4. But times changed, and so did attitudes towards keeping the game development for this franchise in-house at Capcom. Ninja Theory unleashed their vision for Devil May Cry in 2013, and it was an underrated thrill-ride of note. It has now of course joined a long list of “remastered” titles. And it looks like this definitive version of DMC is for the fans.
Bayonetta. Devil May Cry. Two similar yet wildly different games that will break your controller in small pieces of plastic, if you ever tried to solo your way through both franchises in back to back sessions. While the two games do share a certain sense of style, they’re also like night and day in the gameplay department, two sides of the same coin in a currency of kickass action games. But what would happen if those two characters crossed over and joined forces?
If I had to write a top ten list of the coolest characters in gaming, the amount of alcohol that is currently circulating through my blood would most likely give me the number ten to two spots in a terrible attempt to get back at my high school enemies and prove to them that I was awesome after all. The top spot however, would most likely go to Devil May Cry’s Dante. The thing is, I’ve considered his twin brother Vergil to be even cooler than him, ever since I played the special edition of Devil May Cry 3. And in DmC: Devil May Cry, that cool factor is about to get bloody.
It’s Thursday. You’re grumpy, I get that. What you need is a ray of sunshine in your life and I’m going to give it to you! With some blistering new footage of DmC: Devil May Cry’s new Must Style mode running at that sweet spot of 1080p at 60 frames per second. Heck, I’ll even throw in a white wig for free.
[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.
