DmC: Devil May Cry is getting a demo

It appears that Capcom is going to either quell or spread the fan outcry once and for all, as they're planning on releasing a demo for their upcoming polarizing Devil May Cry reboot/not a reboot in the near future. The d...

DmC's new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante photo
DmC's new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante
by Jim Sterling

Ninja Theory's redesign of Dante in DmC: Devil May Cry is easily one of the most controversial overhauls in gaming history. Lengthy arguments have been made, explicitly detailing why the new Dante is such a bad character, and yet others vehemently claim Capcom will never get their money again. Opinions are heated.

Opinions are, however, meaningless without me being around to point out the scientifically correct ones. For, indeed, the quality of the new Dante is a scientific fact, not something you can have a so-called "opinion" about. It's like saying the Sun is cold or that birds can't fly -- you can't have your say in this debate, because it's a matter of reality versus fantasy.

The reality is this -- new Dante is blatantly better than old Dante. If you disagree, you're fighting science.

DmC: Devil May Cry's pre-order bonuses detailed photo
DmC: Devil May Cry's pre-order bonuses detailed
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

You ready for some exciting weapon skins that don't really do much other than change how things look?! Well that's what Capcom is offering for those that pre-order DmC

Pre-order at Amazon and you'll get the bone themed shotgun, scythe, and axe. Plus you'll get access to the Orb Harvester, which let's you collect extra Red Orbs used to upgrade weapons and combos.

Best Buy's pre-order extra will get you the Golden pack, and that will turn your shotgun, scythe and axe into gold colors. You'll also get the Item Finder, and that will help you find hidden items in the game. 

Lastly there's GameStop's pre-order bonus, which sees your weapons take on a samurai theme. Plus you'll get free upgrade points that can be used to upgrade your weapons, combos, and buy items from the beginning of the game. 

Don't care for the skins, but I like some of the other bonuses, especially GameStop's free upgrade points one. In any case, can't wait for the new DmC.

Hideki Kamiya on DmC questions: 'GET THE F*CK OFF'

Hideki Kamiya is a man responsible for a lot of Capcom's success, being influential in the creation of Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. His work as director for that latter game, however, seems to have caused him to go ballis...

TGS: DmC: Devil May Cry gets an unpopular trailer

The above trailer currently has 609 dislikes compared to 370 likes on Youtube. Something tells me that, two years later, people are still sore. That DmC just can't catch a break with fans.  I'm still pretty pumped, myse...

gamescom: DmC: Devil May Cry keeps on getting better
by Dale North

Being one that writes about games for a living, I'm in a rare position that has me playing some games as they're being made, letting me sort of follow its development along the way. Ninja Theory's upcoming DmC: Devil May Cry is one of those games for me.

Since it was announced at Tokyo Game Show a few years ago I've had my hands on every build they've shown to the gaming press, talked to the developers a few times, and have written a fair bit about it. I've previewed the game more than once, and Jim did the same for you again at E3 this summer. We've said a lot about DmC here at Destructoid, and I would hope by now that you would have at least gathered that we dig it. 

And now that a new build and stage of DmC has been made available for press members attending gamescom this week, I've played it again. I mean, why not? Who wouldn't want to see more of a game that they're into?

DmC: Devil May Cry gets a chewy new trailer

A new trailer for DmC: Devil May Cry has surfaced online, as Dante fights nasties in what I am guessing is some sort of food factories, what with the food-looking crates and "obesity" written on the walls. Or it could just b...
