How is it pretentious? I swear the number of idiots using words incorrectly on this forum...


i'd counter this point but you just degenerated this into a name-calling war. i can't even take you seriously anymore.

You just called EVERYONE pretentious. You have no right to the high road, kid.


Yeah, seriously TC, hypocrite much. You really did start it, so everyone here has the right to flame and fire right back. Spoiler alert, no tags necessary: Almost everyone here will too because of it. I know you can't wrap your head around such a mindblowing concept but I assure you if you sit down and think about it for a moment, you'll slowly start to get it.

I'm lucky I wasn't late to it. Seriously, it nearly started without me.

Yes Yes. We know. A small amount of people hate this game. Can we let the subject die already?

Using the "Reboot" excuse for this isn't a particularly good argument. Take away any sort of reference of DMC, and you still get a completely mediocre and glitchy mess. The writing is incredibly low-brow and immature, enough to feel as if it was written by than ten-year old who discovered his first swear word. The combat is a watered down mess, with the awful controls and lacking of directional input limiting you to much less than even games such as the God of War series. The enemies don't vary much, and all of the bosses follow the trend of "giant and slow."

Your opinion is wrong.

Wait, we can't-BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!! How stupid are you? That's....nothing! ". but you'd better have the ability to start your own company, buy over DMC rights and make your own game." Why?!! That's so dumb! I have to be able to buy the company and make the game myself JUST so I can complain about it?! Yeah, nothing works like that. Communism doesn't, Socialism doesn't, Capitalism doesn't. Well, kind of, but not that broken down and idiotic.

No. It's called a collective opinion. In fact loving that piece of garbage,Devil May Cry Devil May Cry(why is it twice?DmC Devil May Cry... Dumb) is jumping on the band wagon with all the adolescent kids and teens who think,along with new Dante, that cursing every 2 seconds,smoking, and be a douche is cool. Who can even like that watered down reboot is beyond me. Fortunatly,the game sold poorly.

Definition of PRETENTIOUS
-making usually unjustified or excessive claims

If i do my job right, you should be seeing a story of Dante that breaks the myth that all videogame stories are trite and will never stand up to the best that theatre and film have to offer. ~ Tameem Antoniades

After experiencing this trainwreck of a story myself, I can safely say that Tameem is the pretentious one.


did you pull that definition out from your rear end? that is DEE epitome of pretentious.

what i meant by pretentious was, well, hating this game under pretense.

after reading all the inept replies to this topic, all i can say is wow, way to overcomplicate simple things guys.

From the very link that was posted earlier in the thread.
http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/pretentious

Are you now going to say that Merriam-Webster pulled that definition out it's ass?

i'll take "he pulled that link out of his ass" for 50 points.

while we're at it, let's scrutinize on the "unjustified and/or excessive claims"
saying either one or more of these:
- crappy never-should-have-happened reboot
- overall bad re-design of dante and vergil
- poor/crude dialogue
- too westernized
- the hair
- simplified combat system to gain style
- blahblah other trivial fluffs

those aren't valid complaints, because like, this is a reboot FFS things are meant to be different.
there will be heaps of changes, dialogue are not going to be as classy, the list goes on.
are people forgetting about ninja theory being part of the dev team?
yup.
all this were meant and expected to happen, then you complain about it. it's like walking into a puddle of lava and crying about getting burnt.

Dumb quote of the year goes to the one I'm replying to. All those claims you are trying to "scrutinize" and failing at badly are all justified and valid claims. The funniest thing in this comment is that you think people have forgotten that ninja theory were involved with developing the game. That's the MAIN PROBLEM that they had with the game. That Ninja Theory were involved with the development. But I guess you forgot that.
Yup.
