Well, more fans wouldn't be much help. If it had more DEDICATED fans, then yeah.
A friend of mine liked DmC on his Facebook. When I asked him why, he said, "Well, I liked the other games. Figured this one would be the same. I never really looked into it." You can believe I suggested that he SHOULD look into it.
I'm with Hannibal Wesker on all points. There are a lot of ****storms, but nothing ever felt as concentrated as the FFXIII saga was/is. Now I will admit, I have missed plenty of other storms of deification in their prime, but looking into all of them, I can at least see why there are complaints, and the same applies for XIII(2)... but the the amount of trolling and hating is relatively biblical with XIII. Relative to the gaming world that is.
This DmC stuff is pretty bad, but it is steadily waning away with more people playing the demo more and more. All I ever hear now are complaints of 30FPS some of the dialogue. At least outside of gamefaqs. I try to... never come here anymore. It tends to be better for my mental health.
^I liked FFXIII and XIII-2 as well, just agree that XIII-2 wasn't needed......main complaints were linearity but I understood it because of story. Supposedly Toriyama said another "Lightning saga will ruin SE", I agree on that to an extent, sometimes I want more than one game with characters I love, FFVII has more game overall than FFXIII and that hasn't ruined SE, hell I'm still waiting for the DoC sequel....
