Calling BS on this. DmC will save the franchise after DMC4 sold 60,000 worldwide in a year.

Dont you love when games fail, and then they make fewer of that game, and companies get more and more conservative.

before we know we will only have yearly sport releases and COD.

I never understand why people WANT games to fail, and then get upset when less and less variety comes out, and cant seem to understand why companies dont try to do something new.


There's a reason why DmC gets a lot of slack. The game is good but it's not what fans wanted. The series didn't need a reboot, especially coming off the most successful entry in the franchise (DMC4).

IF anything I think a lot of people have finally reached their limit when it comes to Capcom's BS this generation. The fact that Capcom's last four major games (Marvel vs Capcom 3, Resident Evil 6, DmC, and Dragon's Dogma) all did worse than Capcom's projections should be a sign to the company as a whole, rather than just singling out DmC.


Just popping in to say Dragon's Dogma far EXCEEDED expectations and that is why they are making an expansion. Honestly Dragon's Dogma is Capcom's saving grace for me and they even milked that game with a year of Disc Locked Content.

Capcom lowered their forecast for Dragon's Dogma twice already...

I'll be playing this game one day. Those abstract worlds are far too interesting for me to ignore. Will buy used.

The world design is impressive. And I've seen a few clips of some bizarre character with half a head. He looked pretty cool as well.

If only the game wasn't a DMC title and if the main characters and story weren't so obnoxious.

Good news for the gaming purist hipsters, I suppose. Now we can go back to the stagnant, samey, boring rehashes of yesteryear. Thanks guys. Change sucks... :-/

That's a shame, the franchise has huge potential. Like alot of first entries this gen, the game itself might not be all that hot, but it lays the foundation for a potentially phenominal sequel.
