I already pre-ordered and paid off my copy of MGR (mainly because I'm a MG fanboy) but I find it hysterical how many people are claiming its the greatest thing ever when you have pretty much an on-call blade mode on top of a Jack the Ripper mode which we'll get and 2 attack buttons which do automatic combos leaving little room for the depth of gameplay that Kamiya offered us with DMC 1 and Bayonetta, yet they complain about the "lack of depth in combat" from DmC... hypocrites. -___-
Way to copy and paste. And MGR is not a combo focused game. Jesus, people like you are annoying.
Oh so we only compare DmC and MGR when its convenient for you, gotcha. ;)
The only reason people compare them is because platinum vs capcom. Are you that dense?
No just finding the whole DmC MGR debates nonsensical when one receives praise while the other garners negativity especially when the main point of a lot of peoples arguments was that DmC wasn't up to snuff combatwise with previous DMC titles yet claim MGR is the greatest thing since sliced bread (pun intended) yet lacks the Kamiya creativity we've all come to love.
Maybe because Kamiya isn't involved. Platinum doesn't necessarily equal Kamiya.
Judging solely from combat perspective I'm going to say he should have been then. Listen, I'm gonna play it and enjoy it and have a Metalgasm like I do every time I play a Metal Gear game, but when I hear people praise the combat system of one and trash the other it just sends a douche-chill up my spine from the shear hypocrisy.
But I totally understand I guess its not supposed to play at all like DMC or Bayo despite being a P* hack and slash and is instead intended to a be a Ninja Gaiden-esque style of game.
Rising is like when you go to Subway to get a sandwich, and it turns out well.
DmC is like when you go to Subway to get a sandwich, and for some reason Spyro the Dragon is working there. So you catch up with him, and ask him how he's been doing and all as you order your sub, and then this leopard guy comes walking up. You can tell he works here because of his uniform, but you're not sure what he's doing. Spyro then takes out a footlong sandwich bun and places it on the counter as this mysterious leopard pulls down his pants and sits down right in front of it. You have a feeling something very wrong is happening here, and so does their co-worker, as you can tell by his intense perspiration.
The leopard grunts as he begins to release the meat onto the sandwich, and Spyro pulls out a piece of onion and starts rubbing it onto the sandwich. Is he doing this to add flavor to it, or to try and mask the scent in hopes that I won't realize what it is? Is this how they normally do things around here? And why is the penguin the only one reacting to this? Is it his first day on the job? Is he nervous about the sandwich making procedure? All these questions and more continue to race back and forth across your head until they're finally interrupted by Spyro asking whether or not you want your sandwich toasted. You choose not to respond as you leave the restaurant, never to return.
You have a heart of gold. Don't let them take it from you.
Honestly im a little disappointed. I dont like how the parry system works and the game seems to rely heavily on it. Also I did suspect it to be combo heavy the way some antis were talking and thus I died way to often in the demo cuz I was trying to play a game in a way it wasnt intended. The sound track was amazing though. Antis really need to stop comparing though as the games are way too different, even if Platinum is doing it it doesnt matter, they also did Vanquish but nobody comapares that to DmC for obvious reasons. MGR is more comparable to NG while DmC is more comparable to GoW, Bayo, and HS.
When coincidence is so convenient, I prefer to call it fate.
