Re: DMC (2012): Devil May Cry discussion

^^ Its way better than DMC4 buddy. Gameplay and story are in a whole different level.
Anand, its time to feed your "Cyclone" and get it accustomed to some real kickass gameplay.
I guess you will be forced to change your Avatar after playing this. :grin:

BTW the music is the best in series. Noisia and Combichrist has done an amazing job. My fav from the combichrist ost:



Ninja Theory FTW! brilliant game, takes a lot of inspiration from corporate america.

Yup i absolutely second that. Its good to see that the game has indeed lived up to the reviews.

Btw check how this guy plays :

Hmm.....Will surely play this game then. Also I saw in forums that this game don't actually need any patches at all as it performs really well and don't have any bugs whatsoever which is a good thing for me as I always like to play games after their development cycle is complete.
As for Avatar, there are many many games which were better than DMC4 but I don't know why I got so attached to Nero for this long time, I mean around 3 years. :p

Hmm....Nice, how does it compare with DMC 4 ??

I'd prefer not to compare, both of them are kickass in their own way. DMC 4 just like its predecessor had really deep gameplay, a devil may cry purist would explain this better.
On the other side, NT's DMC is good in its own way, everything in the art from Animation to the vfx are done extremely well, the narrative, acting - both MoCap and voice- are brilliant, top notch production values, and the platforming is a huge improvement which was kinda broken in the previous games. This is my first Ninja Theory title, I'd always heard that they're really good at creating compelling characters and worlds(10/10), and this game is a brilliant example of that. Don't give a crap about the hardcore fans and their rant about the change in style, Dante might seem like an a$$hole in the beginning, but he's a pretty likable character.
The possible downside, could be the gameplay, its amazing and very very accessible(extremely easy yet rewarding and satisfying), but compared to the previous titles, its not deep enough for a DMC game. The gameplay depth could be an issue to the hardcore DMC purists but for normal gamers, its a delight!

Though I'm kinda disappointed with NT and their insult at the original Dante, they clearly shouldn't have done that.

^^ Did they really insulted the original developers? I heard the original creator hideyeki kamiya ( platinum games) praised NT's work a lot.
What you said about NT owing to characters and level design is absolutely true. Try to play "Heavenly sword" on a ps3. The game was highly praised back then.
DmC borrows combat from that game which is a very good thing.

Its more of a humorous joke on the original Dante's hairstyle, but I found it insulting. Yeah the original creator praised it, good guy I guess ;)

And platforming too, lot of similarities to Heavenly sword.

check this out,



Real shame consoles couldn't do the 60fps :|

Yeah when Heavenly sword was released then I also wished that I could play that game, good thing that this game is similar to that game in many aspect. As for 60 FPS, its nice to see that NT have actually preferred PC gamers this time. :)

to all who are planning to play on PC, better buy a game pad cause you will not be able to chain long combos on keyboard and mouse and air combos are very difficult to pull off on keyboard and mouse

played till mission 6 looks good so far, also if it helps on my PC i am able to get 120-130 fps with Vsync off so playing at 60 fps with Vsync on, graphics wise not that different than console version only textures are better i think...

There is no substantial improvement from console version. Except the frame limit. I guess Ninja Theory's aim was to make the game run smooth across multiple hardware. And I guess they succeeded in it. My friend installed this game on his half decade old PC. And he was getting more than good enough performance at medium settings. Good job, Ninja.

Yes it can, personally experienced it, at low FPS though, but it will run ok in 1280x720.
