DmC: Devil May Cry

What gamers say about DmC: Devil May Cry's latest trailer

So much tasty rage

DmC: Devil May Cry is easily one of the most controversial releases in a good long time. Although a large section of the fanbase has been slowly won over by Capcom and Ninja Theory's promotion, there is still a highly dedicated percentage willing to remind everybody how bad the game is. 

The latest trailer, released this past week, is no different. As usually, we have done JOURNALISM to get to the root of the matter and pull out the most important reactions. This time around, using the PlayStation-uploaded Youtube version of the trailer, we find a core of enthusiastic fans repeatedly commenting on the video, either to defend or attack it. 

As you might expect, wise words and meaningful criticisms are shared. 

"I threw up a little" - killerschemetterling

"This is an abortion, not a sequel." - Longcawk

">Vorgil in a fedora OH GOD, THE FUCK UPS JUST KEEP ON COMING. I'll never play this game, but I swear, it's already provided me with more hours of entertainment then most." - Canadish

"FYI I played the demo at Comic Con and the gameplay was fucking horrible. Its more than the fact that Donte looks like a douchey punk rocker rapist based on Tameem Antoniades' look. It's more than the fact that the story and dialogue are worse than fanfiction. It's the fact that the gameplay looks fucking boring, repetitive, and slow. It's a downgrade from the combat in DMC3 & 4, and panders WAY too much to casual gamers. That's why it's shit. Now quit being a deluded fanboy you stupid cunt." - IEATFOOOOD

"Oh god. It's everything bad about Devil May Cry, amplified and drenched in crappy hardcore music and Hot Topic "style." Forget about updating DMC, this is the most late 90s/ early 00s thing ever in the worst ways. I keep expecting Fred Durst and ICP to pop out and start a 'dope rap battle'" - Clichedisdain

"I LIKE HOW MUFUCKAS GET ON HERE & TRY TO CONVINCE PEOPLE INTO NOT BUYIN THIS GAME, IF U THINKVTHIS GAME LOOKS NICE BY ALL MEANS PURCHASE IT." - neji361style

"AS FAR AS THE STORY YEAH ITS DEVIATED FROM THE ORIGINAL BUT THAT ONLY MAKES SENSE ITS ANOTHER UNIVERSE & WE DONT KNOW THE FULL STORY YET" - neji361style

"OK SO THE FRAMERATE IS REDUCED TO 30fps BUT BECAUSE OF THAT WE GET AN INTERACTIVE ENVIORMENT & PLATFORMING 2 FEATURES PAST DMC's LACKED" - neji361style

"& BY NOW IF U STILL DONT LIKE DmC STOP WATCHIN THE NEW TRAILERS ITS POINTLESS TO KEEP WATCHIN TRAILERS & COMMENT ON A GAME U DONT INTEND TO BUY" - neji361style

"'You've never played a good game in your life if you think this looks like anything but generic garbage." - TheWeegeeToast

"NopeNopeNopeNopeNopeNopeNopeNo­peNope I DO NOT ACCEPT THIS NEW DMC!!! Fuck that shit ‎(ノಥ益ಥ)ノ ┻━┻" - XDarkClericX18

"hahahaah yeah yeah dont cry little pussy..dmc 4 it really SUCKKS that stupid idiot of nero.." i am stronger whit my arm blablabls" ahahahah" - Mega1andrea1

"Good gamers can judge games from footage and trailers without playing it. If you think this looks good you're just a bad gamer." - TheWeegeeToast

"No, you are NOT Dante. You are an angsty teenage poser." - 8ferrary8

"Why would anyone want to play as this game's Virgil? He looks like an even bigger tool than the new Dante. On top of making them both look like Amerishit they actually had the nerve to give him a douchy fedora. It's absolutely pathetic." - TheWeegyToast

"20 dollar dlc. calling it" - zyonhunter

"Fedora's are only worn by hipster faggots." - IEATFOOOOD

"It's because this game is being made by Ninja Theory, a group of complete fucking amateur game developers who haven't made a single good and memorable game. I played the demo. I KNOW that it will be dogshit. And FYI DMC3 & 4 were directed by Hideaki Itsuno and were great games. Kamiya only directed the first game. And before you try to say that Itsuno is helping to work on the game, he barely had any involvement since he was dedicated to making Dragon's Dogma. But by all means, enjoy wasting $60" - IEATFOOOOD

"Haters gonna hate, all because he doesn't have weeaboo-tastic long white hair you're gonna miss out on what looks like an awesome game._" - Czarewich

The ultimate waifu has been decided scientifically. There is no need to participate in the waifu wars any longer. (I won't tell you who it is until I make my own post of course)

I'm starting to get really excited for the approach of the new FE games! I'm going to revisit Awakening. Are any of the DLCs worth it at all? (AKA what's the deal with the Future Past DLC?)

There's gonna be enough copies of both Fire Emblem: Birthright and Fire Emblem: Conquest that I shouldn't really feel the need to preorder them at Best Buy, right? I want to get both versions (I buy physical only) and I'm worried they won't have enough.
