Not-review: DmC: Devil May Cry on PC
by Jim Sterling

DmC: Devil May Cry has been out for a while, and I think everybody's said what they need to say about it. Whether you're a supporter of the game, a hater of the game, or you were busy making up stories about human babies being shot in the game to have an opinion, it's out now, and everybody's had their say. 

As is so often the case, the PC version of the game has not received quite so much press, despite being, in several ways, the version most worth checking out. Fortunately, we gave this forgotten, recently released alternative a try, and can confirm it's definitely got a few things over on its more widely marketed console brethren.

New DmC: Devil May Cry costumes revealed photo
New DmC: Devil May Cry costumes revealed
by Chris Carter

After I beat DmC: Devil May Cry the other day, I unlocked the white-haired Dante costume. Essentially, it's the new Dante in his same "new" style, with his old hair color.

It was small concession for fans who really cared what he looked like, but now we're getting three more costumes that should placate a few more fans.

They'll be available for purchase (lol) on January 30th, and you can view them all in our lovely gallery. It kind of ruins the joke they played about his old style, but hey, it works for me.

As I said in my 100% Retrospective, I enjoyed the new DmC, despite the fact that it had a number of shortcomings that held it back from greatness.

I'm hoping with the upcoming Vergil DLC and the free Bloody Palace update, they can augment the game even further (not to mention possible old school DLC down the line).

All I know is that I'm playing the game wholly as the costume in the header from now on (the other two costumes I outright don't like), and I'm pretty damn excited.

Are you?

100% Series Retrospective: Devil May Cry photo
100% Series Retrospective: Devil May Cry
by Chris Carter

[Read on for a description of every Devil May Cry game ever released in the US, and my completion of them all in 2013.]

2013 is going to be an exciting year. Now that I know you guys enjoy reading my Quests, I'm going to make an effort to do even more of them from here on out.

I hope that you have learned a bit about the franchises I've covered so far, as my plan is to inspire others to share their thoughts and feelings with the series of their choice as well (which many of you have done!).

In addition to Metroid, Mega Man Classic, the Mega Man spinoffs, Mega Man X, and Splinter Cell, I also have another one ready to go for 2013: Devil May Cry.

See what new Dante thinks of the whole white hair issue

In the first level of DmC: Devil May Cry, Dante gets a little surprise while taking on the game's first boss. The video is below the fold as the thumbnail is a a bit spoilerish.  [Thanks, Zak!]

Review: DmC: Devil May Cry  photo
Review: DmC: Devil May Cry
by Jim Sterling

DmC: Devil May Cry is an insult. It insults the fans, who have loyally supported Capcom through thick and thin, and it insults the legacy of a most respected action series. Ninja Theory has spat upon one of the last pure names in gaming, though for Capcom, it's just another twist of a long-rusted knife. Also, Mega Man Legends 3

The above paragraph was for people who are reading this review specifically to be told something like that. Now they're satiated, let's have ourselves a review.

DmC will get Bloody Palace mode for free after launch photo
DmC will get Bloody Palace mode for free after launch
by Jordan Devore

For better or worse, with the direction DmC: Devil May Cry has taken, I would have figured the series' popular Bloody Palace mode would be an obvious inclusion; something familiar for long-time fans to fall back to once everything was said and done. The silence has been broken: the gauntlet will be making it to the game, but not until after launch.

Capcom announced today that Bloody Palace mode and its 100-some levels of demons is scheduled to arrive as a free update for all users "shortly after launch." DmC is out on January 15, 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and January 25 for the PC. As expected, players will need to clear the main game to access this mode. Thank goodness they didn't try to charge for this.

Impressions: DmC: Devil May Cry demo photo
Impressions: DmC: Devil May Cry demo
by Chris Carter

It's been about a week since Ninja Theory and Capcom made the DmC: Devil May Cry demo available for public consumption, and I've had quite a bit of time to reflect on it, as well as replay the classic games that made Devil May Cry a household name for a direct comparison.

A lot of people asked me what I think of the game, since I'm one of the most vocal DmC fans on Destructoid. I own every game (even redundant platforms), I bought every game at launch, and I've beaten all of them on every difficulty. It's safe to say I love DmC.

Going in, I was extremely skeptical of Ninja Theory. No, not because Dante's hair is a different shade of grey -- because Ninja Theory, in my opinion, has never developed a solid action game in the history of their company.

With that in mind, here's what I think of the demo.
