DMC

Hard core fans of the Devil May Cry series are up in arms over this video featuring a sex scene between demons stating that it shows how the developers have completely lost their way and don’t understand who they are developing for anymore.


“Gratuitous: Uncalled for; lacking good reason; unwarranted.”

Take a look and then read on, it’s not exactly safe for work but there is no nudity just sounds

Now I’ve never been much of a DMC fan so maybe I’m missing the boat entirely here but I don’t think adding in a slightly risqué scene cheapens the game any more than throwing in swear words every second sentence to seem hard core.

In fact in my opinion it makes the demons appear more real and human, it shows they have feelings and desires and that alters my perception of them.

Granted like I said I’m not a fan of the series so maybe they always had that angle going, either way if the DMC franchise is going to fail I don’t think it will be because they added in a 10 second cut scene implying sex.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer
