I haven't been following this game that closely. Heard about the game when it was first announced. I liked the demo, and here I am.


Then why are you defending the writing if you just liked the gameplay?


Because I have no problems with the writing in the DmC demo. I can name at least ten other games that have worse writing, and even more that uses the f-word too much and in ways not at all appropriately.


Name them.
I JUST KEEP BURNNING LOVE!

Dante is the embodiment of anime "cool dude".

Using the F word isn't bad. It just has to be tasteful, like nudity. Nudity is disgusting if it's out of context and isn't necessary.

Seriously this isnt grade school. Dante or any other character using f*** isnt a big f***ing deal. Get over it.


Because people are grasping at straws a this point, in order to discredit the new Dante.

Old Dante was a cheesy, non-funny, anime-ish protagonist, and some people are being blinded by nostalgia when they say that he was a great character. Oh, not to forget, IMO.


u just have a bad taste in character and since when Anime-ish is bad?? Fyi Anime is way better than most Hollywood movies these days.


Anime is great, no argues there. But "old" Dante, to me at least, came across as one of those typical shonen protagonists. Meaning that he would, often, be cool and flashy, but not terrible interesting as a main character.

Language, please. You are coming across as the "new" Dante. Meaning a bit on the bratty side.

And when I say typical, I'm talking about him being nonchalant, too cool for school etc.

But that doesn't help this game's case at all. It's still an utterly terrible attempt at trying to make Devil May Cry look "cooler" to younger western audiences by making everyone swear a lot.

You could probably name 10 games with worse writing, but that doesn't change the fact that this game still has bad writing.

The issue is that they are bragging about the writing. They are bragging that the combat is just as good as, if not better, than the first 4 games.

Those are lies.
