"It’s potentially a sad end to a tale brought about very much by the fans themselves. Anyone who played Devil May Cry 4 must surely of seen how desperately the IP needed an injection of new ideas and modernisation – which is exactly what the skilful Ninja Theory achieved.
Yet the fans revolted because Capcom dared to reinvent its IP for the 21st century and dared to change the colour of Dante’s hair. It’s really very sad.
A headline suggested by a colleague: “Devil May Cry fans destroy brand out of spite.” That about covers it."
Wow, just wow. I can't believe he seriously wrote that
How dare fans not buy a game that doesn't appeal to them with their money. How dare they destroy a brand that isn't even remotely similar to what it used to be. I swear gaming journalists are getting more and more mentally challenged. For f***'s sake, they're putting the burden of the failure of a game on customers now. --- Frank Zappa is God. Fact. King of Heroes, do you have enough swords?!
