I don't think he actually cares. My understanding was they were paid prior to the release of the game. I dunno, ask someone a bit more knowledgeable on Ninja Theory's payment from Capcom.
He'd probably say why aren't you buying? It got 8's and 9's and 10's. Then he (and Capcom) might realize that DMC's appeal was never entirely compatible with reviewers views, and that the fans expected certain things from the game that weren't there. DMC had Easy Automatic Mode. That's your easy mode. This game may have been moderately enjoyable, but the enemies are too easy and they rely far too much on the "I am damaged by Angel/Demon weapons only" gimmick to maintain challenge (or instill it, even).
"Ware wa Sanger Sombold. Aku o Tatsu Tsurugi Nagi!" The last thing Evil hears before it is Cleaved in two.
Probably something along the line like the original dmc fans are ignorant and wont give this game a chance, because they created the best 30 fps action game of all time
What a fantastic self-description.
I'll bet you can't put forth any solid argument as to why this game is an "abomination." The only thing abominable around here is how bent out of shape people got over a few changes.
Did you know that Ninja Theory was originally going to go with a white-haired Dante that was closer to the original version? CAPCOM asked them to go in a different direction because they wanted something new, not a rehash.
You're getting caught up on window dressing people. I like old Dante better too, but I'm not going to let that stop me from enjoying this game's great combat system. As long as the game is fun to actually PLAY, the rest doesn't matter as much.
Then again, most of the people whining are too god damned dumb to do anything but go along with the herd. Try sampling the game for yourself people, and really give it a fair shake. It's what I did. I wasn't sure if I wanted to commit to a purchase, but playing the demo convinced me to buy it. I've been enjoying the game immensely and don't regret buying it at all.
