OP might find it funny, but If you couldn't do a good job, you should of handed it to someone who could.

This is how I feel. I also dislike negative OTs.

The purist tirades just strike me as silly. For whatever reason if this game wasn't called Devil May Cry they would have no problem with it and they probably play a ton of action games without being so picky about them but because they care about intellectual property attached to a given game (for whatever reason) they howl and yell and make silly .gifs if they don't feel the IP matches what they think the brand should represent.

A game that isn't called Devil May Cry wouldn't carry the expectations of the Devil May Cry franchise, that must is true.

This is a good OT. It's not a massive PR orgy. It plays on the criticisms that the game rightly wrought upon itself, whilst still being informative of all the real meat, such as the release date, weapons and whatever preorder bonuses are available.

It only only needs a few videos showing off the gameplay.

[edit]And reviews as they come in.

An Italian no-name site reviewed the game despite not having received a review copy, all the while breaking the review embargo. All the other reviews have been from magazines so far.

But then people would complain the OP is hating on the game again. :(

Joking aside, the drive-by trolls feeling emboldened by the OP will be banned/gone after a couple pages and the real discussion can start.

First couple pages of an OT are always garbage, whether it's negative (this) or positive (three hundred posts of "great job OP! can't wait!") in tone. Just go with it and stop bitching.




Was the PC port done in-house or outsourced?

I disagree. The OT isn't remotely funny.

Revenge of Sh*t Mountain is more tasteful than No, F*** You? At least the latter is in-game dialogue.

Are you serious? He doesn't even explain the gameplay. He also doesn't show off any advanced techniques that are staples of the series, and he posts gifs mocking the game. It's made for people who like to rag on it. Anyone who likes this game won't feel comfortable coming in here.

This OT is bullshit.

An OT doesn't need excess information detailing advanced techniques and what not. It should be good on information about the game and getting people excited. Unless... you know. You don't remember the DMC HD Collections thread.

Because of the opening post? An OT is an OT. The meat is in the posts after the opener. Lovingly crafted opening posts get ignored more often than not.

I think it's funny. Not everything needs to be taken so seriously. I wish we had more OTs like this instead of the massive PR circle jerks, to be honest.

Thanks to anybody that can help me out with these.

1) Game is pretty fun in its combat.
2) Controls are fairly intuitive but not as precise/responsive as previous DMC games or like Bayonetta.
3) Load times are here and there, nothing too alarming.
4) Weapons are upgraded by buying moves or buying upgrades to moves. There are two currencies, one that is used to buy skill upgrades and the other to buy items.
5) Yeah there is a shop to buy upgrades and items. They are spread in the levels or you can access it before/after each mission.

I will make a "Tips and Tricks for Newcomers" post. Relax guys.

Just because some people don't look at the OP and/or don't give two shits about it doesn't mean the rest of the GAF population doesn't. If you aren't even going to be remotely tasteful with the OT or handle it with some semblance of tact I think you should be prohibited from making any future OTs either permanently or temporarily. This is stupid.

It's uninviting. Along with that title. It's honestly made for someone like you.

Nice, thanks Dahbomb! Is there a score attack or boss rush mode in the game?
