    Despite the horrendous (read: gay) character designs, I really wanted to keep an open mind about this game. Then, I played the demo on PS3. I just can't take writing/dialogues like those. That's just too much to ask.

    You people are a bunch of crybabies, if the game's not hard; then it's not worth playing it, simple as that. DMC 3 wasn't even that hard

    Is there a reason why this site can't write anything about DmC without making people uninterested in this game sound like they irrational haters? Here's a thought, maybe the game isn't as good as this site tries to make it sound? And maybe *gasp* there are legitimate reasons to not like this game.

    Says the person with a FFXIII avatar...

    I actually hated FFXIII. :P I just thought Lightning was a decent character.

    It's fine to not care about this game. The people I'm trying to address are the ones who feel the need to proclaim that they won't be touching it, over and over again ad nauseam. If they really didn't care, they probably wouldn't comment at all.

    Lol, I see the staff of this site is trying really hard to support this game xD Eh, from everything I've seen, including the leaked videos from the past few days, I've made my decision and I will not be buying this game. None of this matters though, since in a few days the game will be out and people will have real means to form their opinion. I'll be waiting for more gameplay videos and will be following some forums, for I've learned not to trust reviews. Should be fun :D

    Am I the only one that never gave a shit about this series in the first place? I hated the old Dante and this new one sounds just as stupid.

    Frigging Jesus, I'm excited about this. Thanks for reminding me, by the way, finally went and preordered this a moment ago. Playing through the demo, I'm glad to see the difficulties were more akin to DMC4's than 3's- in that the hard modes were just as hard, but the easier modes were a little easier. After finished the somewhat hard levels on the demo, I wanted just that little bit more difficulty, and it was nice to see it was available fairly simply. The weapons I'm a bit bummed out about. After playing the demo, I'm happy that the gameplay's awesome, and that Dante'd awesome, and that everything's awesome, especially the axe and scythe I got to play with. But I just feel it's a pity that on top of those, there are only a couple more weapons to get, only one of which we haven't seen yet- at least, I haven't, and I've been paying pretty close attention to this. Admittedly, DMC's never had AMAZINGLY large armouries, but I was hoping after Bayonetta it might have expanded slightly, especially since they don't seem to be branching out in terms of guns this time. I was saddened to hear about the 'alternate universe' thing, since I was actually quite excited about seeing Dante's early years, so finding out it's not technically canon was a bit of a let-down. But my real issue with this is the inclusion of Vergil, really. I frigging love Vergil- my favourite DMC character, always has been- and while I'm happy to see him included, I'm worried that putting him in so early, and with such a large, and seemingly protagonistic, role, seems like a bit of wasted potential for a possible teaser ending, and hint at villains in a potential sequel, y'know? Vergil had always been shrouded and mystery, and was always a mostly bad guy. In DmC, he seems to be neither :/ And if it IS true to the standard DMC lore, then him and Dante are going to fall out and Vergil's going to side with demons in honour of his dad, which already seems to border on story spoilers to me before it's even released. Either way, none of this is going to stop me buying the game, which I'm now even more pumped for than ever. And there are still... fur days before it launches. Thank Lucas- you're amazing writing has got me both excited and desperate at the same time. Which is possibly a good thing. I don't know, I'm too busy thinking of a way to time travel to Tuesday.

    "Also, despite what you might think, he’s got plenty of slick one-liners besides dropping f-bombs in the middle of a boss fight. " If by slick, you mean trying to pass curse words as clever jokes, then yeah, i guess you have a point. I AM open to this new game, and i'm willing to give it a try if the final product delivers, and Dante gets to grow up as a character. But from what I experienced in the demo, my biggest criticism is by far that he and the boss slung obscenities left and right without any real cleverness or comedic timing. It felt like watching two teenager poser boys spatting it out to see who had the dirtier mouth. And see, Old Dante was ridiculous in his own way, but he never resorted to be vulgar in order to be funny or look baddass. I can understand wanting to have a different take on the character, but so far, I can't blame the detractors of the game because, what I tasted form his attitude, left me with a bad taste. And again, this is from someone who has never jumped the gun and hated the new game right away, even when first announced. Still, I did enjoy the gameplay aspect of the demo. Not quite the same DMC I knew, but still fun in it's own way. So if the story manages to pull trough and make Dante evolve, and keep the variety going, i AM willing to get it.
  • GR_LucasSullivan - January 11, 2013 2:33 p.m.

    From what I played (about half the game), that was the only time Dante curses in that way. What makes his lines funny throughout is that Dante views these freaky demons as more annoying than scary. It's hard to get a sense of that in the demo, but if you play through the levels consecutively, you'll see what I mean.
  • deafwing - January 12, 2013 9:41 a.m.

    that's cool - I thought the demo was setting a potty mouth tone so it's good to hear that it's only was with Secret Ingredient so far :p ...
  • GR_RyanTaljonick - January 11, 2013 2:01 p.m.

    That exchange is super gigle-worthy
  • BladedFalcon - January 11, 2013 2:10 p.m.

    Could you elaborate on the why? because i sincerely failed to crack even a smile ._.
