The title is perfect. Yeah, the actual post could have a little more to it, but people who are actually interested in the game will ask questions anyway. OT's aren't supposed to be advertisements.

The majority of the "chaos" is people yelling about how the OT is didn't include the letters "OT". If it helps, think of this thread as a metaphor for Limbo.

The other discussions would have happened regardless, no matter how beautiful the opening post was.

Let people think what the think at this point.

Nothing the game can do to change minds at this point.

I'm just glad it looks like a competent game at this point.

Bloody Palace will be post launch DLC (free) where you ascend floors to fight waves and waves of enemies in a survival setting, but otherwise no. Highscores will be recorded, presumably.

I've actually liked Ninja Theory's other two big games (Heavenly Sword & Enslaved)... and I dig the angels/demons angle.

I'm just worried about NT ramming a social/political message down my throat. I don't mind a designer injecting some of their own beliefs into a story, but don't try beating me over the head with it.
I also don't like how Dante carries himself; at least in videos and the demo. The middle fingers, "fuck you"s, etc. just seems like try hard shit. Original Dante had cheesy one-liners and an arrogant way about him, but somehow it still worked. New Dante just seems like a really unlikeable character from what I've seen.
After some pretty good overall writing with HS and Enslaved, I'm hoping the overall result works.

Not terribly excited about this game, but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. NT's been hammered with negativity from the start, so a part of me is definitely cheering for an underdog move here.

This OT is bullshit.

I think this OT is bullshit, too, but come the fuck on with the bolded. This is a message board about a video game, and you've never been on the internet before if you think people will somehow be too ashamed to express their (positive) opinions here.

Will there be a ton of bullshit and arguing about what the game is and what it represents and on and on, just like there has been in every DmC thread so far? Yes. The actual content of the OT wasn't going to change that.

Well, it's Unreal Engine instead of MT Framework, but yeah, Capcom is probably the Japanese publisher most trustworthy where PC ports are concerned.

Misrepresentation on the internet. Stop the presses.

Nothing in the OT is egregiously inaccurate. Maybe instead of complaining about the OT and the people in the OT, you can just post some of your positive energy and PR spin to balance it out.

For PC gamers, it is also worth noting that you can pre-order a pack deal for $60 that includes Devil May Cry 3 SE and Devil May Cry 4 and you get those to play right away in addition to the regular pre-order costume bonuses. That is the option I went for.

ezekial,

the game isn't out yet.

At least the "fuck thi game yo" post are at the start of it, in a few days it will be all about the game especially when DaBomd starts posting his breakdowns and shit.

If the "hate" bothers you just be glad that for the most part the drive-bys are at the start of the thread.

the OP could be less snarky but it's not that bad.

Reviews have said that the overall story is nothing that special. It's fairly straightforward. Stronger towards the beginning and then starts to weaken at the end.

I have a computer that can run The Witcher 2 on decent settings. I could not run DMC3 PC without making adjustments/changes.

That's not the point, it's about having all general information and features of the game right at the beginning, instead of being some hatchet job for people who don't like it. That's what the OP of the OT is supposed to fucking do, offer information about the game.

You get me? It's petty.

Now I'm done.

Based on reviews so far, the story is one of the weaker aspects of the game. Very basic in that aspect.

I liked Devil May Cry 4 quite a bit but I am willing to bet it can only be better than that silly mess of a narrative with the cheesy one liners. Though if the OP's character descriptions are anything to go by, then the game seems to trying to hit some of the absurd wacky charm of the original.

At the least though, Ninja Theory without question has better writers than Capcom does.

Good overall, but I think NT's writers have a problem closing out stories.
Wasn't a big fan of HS or Enslaved endings, but overall I liked both stories. What stands out the most are the performances by the actors, though. Excellent in both games.
