I wish capcom didn't help.

The original DmC would have been amusing to watch/pick apart.


Yeah, it would have been hilarious. Even with their teachings the game has a lot of questionable design choices, imagine if they had left them alone.

Wasn't there some quote a while back about how Japanese designers add things for no other reason but to look cool?

And now here we have a designer at Ninja Theory putting elbow blades on all the enemies with no intention of them actually using them...

"Japanese style ethos does tend to involve making characters look cool for the sake of looking cool, adding odd accessories, crazy hairstyles and colour, cowboy boots and so on simply because they look cool/

"We in the West tend to be more functional adding things that have meaning and being able to explain that meaning. Why does Dante have white hair? I want to make a little story around that and explain it. And so on for the rest of his design choices."

Why does Dante have white hair? I want to make a little story around that and explain it.

And the explanation turned out to be the same as it was before. Brilliant.
