DmC the fall of another good series.

To me, Dante still retains his laid-back, badass attitude here though. That's what I always thought defined the character. The dialogue in the demo sounded at least as good as previous DMCs, and probably better.

I live cali. My understandibg of cursing is that it is something teens do to try and sound cool. And how does the #### you screaming contest even begin to hold up to the dialogue in the past ones?

Maybe because it makes more sense in a real world context?

You have a 20-something year old anarchist Dante with an attitude dealing with a nasty, grotesque demon. Logically, wouldn't you assume that if demons were real they would use profanity? I think that is a guarantee. Wouldn't you also assume that Dante, in a real world situation, would also resort to that sort of language?

I don't know where your understanding of cursing comes from, but where I come from (and how I was raised in both America and Europe) we use it in basically every conversation unless we're in a professional or school environment. It's part of everyday life and most of my daily exchanges sound like a Judd Apatow movie (from Superbad to 40 Year Old Virgin, take your pick).

It's all in the eye of the beholder, apparently. Just keep that in mind.

@ En Sabah Nur "What is the issue with profanity exactly? It's not about sounding cool, it's for emphasis. Maybe it's just because I'm a New Yorker but I found the profanity to be fitting/appropriate and even enjoyable. It wasn't as overdone as in something like Bulletstorm (and even there it was usually still pretty good).

Is it because some of you aren't used to profanity? Or you aren't open-minded? Or you prefer really campy, lame dialogue (which was often truly cringe-worthy)?"

Well, The issue with profanity here is that its not "emphasizing" anything saying its just there because there trying to make Dante sound like a badass, the old dante hardly ever had to use profanity and look at how many people are upset that he's gone . And maybe your not hearing the dialogue in this game but how is "come here, you little sh**s" not lame, that sounds like something an elderly person would say to his grandson or an unwanted child on his lawn. Furthermore, during the boss battle where they are both telling each other "f*** you" that's not cool, nor funny, or is it emphasizing anything...It sounds like an arguement between two teens in middle school after one person was told "to go F*** themselves" and then couldn't come up with a comeback so they said the same thing...its just childish and doesn't make sense. In conclusion i'm confused, what's not lame about two people yelling "f*** you" back and forth?

Yeah, because "#### you!" "#### you!" "#### you!" Reminds me of great things, like that time my brother got drunk and started screaming at everyone on my birthday. Stil made sure he didn't drown in his own vomit. Would not do the same for tameem. Or the guy at capcom who approved this blasphemy called dmc.

I thought Dante's exchange with the boss was just fine.

It's all subjective. I'll take profanity and the direction they're going in over "I should have been the one to fill your dark soul with liiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!" any day.

You guys are seriously rocking those rose-colored shades. I always loved the series for its gameplay. I never thought much of the dialogue, and I hated Dante's personality in DMC3 (even though it was an excellent game).

Personally, I'd tell a demon to go **** itself too. But maybe that's just my inner Dante talking.

Kind of loses all sense of realism somewhere around the horribly cliche origin, demon city, and oh right, fighting demons.

I don't see why people have a problem with cursing. We hear it everyday. And when's the last time you saw a non-profane fight?

Why would you simply compare it to the original series? Tameem said he would rise the medium into a new unforeseen glory. To hold it to any standard less than that would be doing him and the game a disservice.

At least the dialogue in the previous series was original. I never heard someone say "Flock-off, featherface" but I have heard someone unimaginatively spout "F*** you" plenty of times. I think the point of being a good writer is coming up wit things people wouldn't normally say.
