Sure, there's alot of changes in the gameplay I would like to be regressed, but so long as I'm able to string together long combos while being moderately challenged by the enemies around me I'm satisfied.
As for Dante, he's an ok guy in my book, don't like him as much as old Dante like most people. Unlike alot of people though I find him above tolerable, and maybe it's just cause of who I've lived around, but I never found his cursing excessive.
The demo boss scene did irk me though, but to me the fault was almost entirely on the demon and not on Dante, like alot of people said he really should talk more his age, Dante was perfectly fine to me.
My one true complaint is the near uselessness of guns, if they can fix that the game would be worlds better.
Overall this game will get a buy, or at least a rent from me when it comes out.
Glad to hear you gave the demo a chance. I agree with you, my major issues were the lack of lock-on(which i'm starting to care less about),30fps(could honestly care less, it felt fine), and certain balance issues(like you mentioned, guns felt weak. Style meter was easy to exploit). I think they have listened to the fan feedback, so i think the guns and style meter will be improved . It was a demo, and the guns were base level. I know they still felt weak, but the upgrades might make them more powerful per upgrade compared to previous games. It is a buy for me also, the more i play the demo the more i enjoy it.
Yeah I think there's a reason they showed the demo off a couple months before the game comes out. To possibly fix certain things people had wrong with it. Now I'm not saying they will definitely fix it, but to automatically say they won't just because you hate Capcom and/or NT is just overly negative.
