japan gaming is dead
You are on the path to being a good troll. You don't get tired but you really need to work on the comments.

HellFire-Bahamu posted...But in all honesty though, while this may sound odd to some, the Xbox 360 does actually have a lot to do with the state of the gaming industry as it stands. Had the Japanese been a bit more fond of the console at launch (and today really), Japan wouldn't have spent so much time playing "catch up" and the westernization situation would've been much less frequent. By this is only a part of the point.
When I say it's the Xbox 360s fault, I'm saying it's because western gaming entered the next gen well before the east did. The difference in markets really had an effect here.
The fact that the PS3 got a lot of bad ports of Xbox 360 games even shows that the PS3 had a rough start when it came to development, with western developers complaining that it was too hard in comparison to the 360. The east, however, clearly must have had hell initially since the PS3 is their console of choice.
That aside, none of the popular games of this generation are made from "newcomers".
Ubisoft, Bioware, Rockstar, Naughty Dog, Insomniac, etc. All of them are made from developers who were had made hit games last generation.
The only "newcomer" you have on your list is Ninja Theory.
That aside, western developers may appear to be more ambitious, but the east are just as ambitious as well. They're more burdened with traditions in game concepts however, while the west has no problem with overhauls and making massive changes.
What it's really come down to is how the west set the precedent for this current generation and Japan had a difficult time trying to match us, cause western games sell in Japan, but Japanese games don't sell as well here. This isn't the case with every game of course, but it's the general case.
I had to say this, despite him not posting in ages but whatever.

You're the first reasonable detractor I've seen for this game. At the very least your logic is understandable. Near all the other antis are "it's a terrible game! It's nothing like DMC at all! Dante is emo!" etc, etc.....the usual trolling bull. If more were like you, I'd be all for actually having a discussion on the matter.
1: A lot of antis ARE very reasonable! You're quoting the trolls (The pro side has just as many, if not more trolls too) Most of us give reasons as to what our issues with the game (and dev team) are.
2: Someone with your signature should know how much... uproar... there was when a certain 360 game was released. This is the same scenario, right down to devs insulting the fanbase and franchise.

Lying isn't cool, brosef
It's sad that the best thing to come out of Capcom recently is a fan made game

These reviews might be too superficial. Not enough infomation.

...Are you serious? FireMage, knock it off. Our first "official" DmC review score zone and half of 7 pages (50 posts per page setting) is talking about whether or not Smash Bros is competitive?!
