Dress DmC Dante Like Classic Dante

Don’t like Dante’s new look? You can get a Classic Dante costume on January 30. This gives Dante his crimson red trench coat and silver hair. Hmm… has a million years passed already?

 

The first round of DmC Devil May Cry costumes also includes Dark Dante (left) and Neo Dante (right).

DmC Devil May Cry costume pack #1 costs 400 yen or 320 Microsoft points ($4).

  • Bobby Jennings

    Haha, classic actually looks decent on him!

  • JustThisOne

    Ooo… Neo-Dante looks a little weird. xD Never really thought ribbons were his thing, y’know? Others look fine though.

  • tokotamer

    Oh, Capcom.

  • Ben Chau

    Now if only there was a voice dlc…

  • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

    He looks a bit skinny, especially in the cheeks, but it doesn’t look mismatched. I won’t be using the costume for the first run though, even if I’d get it.

    • puchinri

      His cheeks looked too puffy to me (which was why he looks silly there).

    How about DLC that removes the terrible platforming?

    • midgard229

      because the platforming was good in the other games? lol. the platforming is fine dude, stop being picky, if you are just hating on the gaame then wait till its 20 bucks, its still fun as hell

      • revenent hell

        Uhm I dont know wich platforming games you have played,to be fair I dont want it compaired to past DMC games,so in your opinion what is it equivalent to? To me it reminded me of Alice madness returns but I havent tried the demo or bought the game so im curious

        • midgard229

          well mario, rayman, and lbp.

          but its never about platforming which is right but the platforming isnt that bad. im fine with it there, it could be refined. but dmc always had horrible platforming lol especially dmc1

          • revenent hell

            This is very true. Ive never realy played a DMC game for its platforming anyways,the fights and combo’s are realy what I play those games for,and my affinity for the charecters :D
            I said I didnt know what platforming games you have played because I didnt know wich one I should compare it to while asking what it was like:) Though after re reading it it does sound like im interogating a bit haha.
            Ive played A TON of platforming games so I was curious what this dmc was similar to in that aspect.

      • alto_angelo

        because DMC series was never about platforming?

      • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

        Why would I pay 20 for a dumbed down reboot of a franchise I lost interest in 2 games ago?

  • Isaac Newton

    Well at least now he doesn’t look like a crack user….

    • Bass_Ventura_

      XD XD XD!

  • HassanJamal

    Hahaha doesnt this costume negate that silly easter egg of theirs?

    • http://twitter.com/lesang000 le nguyen hoang sang

      yeah , ” has a million years passed already?” best vote i have hear in this post ! LOL . It’s million years that he can be as cool as the old Dante .

    • Landale

      Considering his hair goes white over the course of the game, fully white permanently at the end, and beating it already gives you a permanently white haired Dante if you want it…. No. Not really. It already got negated by plot and an already in game costume change option.

      • HassanJamal

        I get what you mean but its gonna be abit sillier now with that costume. Says not in a million years, takes off wig, anddd thus result.

    • JustThisOne

      Wouldn’t it be cool if he rips off his wig in that cutscene only to reveal the exact same haircut?

      “Never in a million years.”

      It would be epic. *___*

      • HassanJamal

        I am reminded of that Kakashi scene in Naruto XD

        • Ferrick

          and i’m reminded of Major Glory of the justice friends XD

          he had a mask underneath his mask underneath his mask underneath his mask (repeat ad infinitum)

          edit: finally found that scene XD
          http://youtu.be/qHjQx6YFrmE?t=4m20s

          • HassanJamal

            Hahahah XD I remember these guys, they were on Dexter’s Laboratory! Ahh nostalgia. Thanks for that clip :D

      • Landale

        Some scenes use whatever skin you’ve got selected, others temporarily switch to the default. That one switches to the default as I recall.

        • AzureRyuujin

          Awww… D: That would have been a laughing riot.

  • Ryudo9

    It was never about hair color NT.

    • https://twitter.com/SaveTheQueenIX Liquid Kaz (Umar)

      the truth!

    • Fub Frank

      Don’t really get the idea that it was all about that. Capcom always releases “new” costumes and when they do they tend to have the “classic” version ie Resident Evil.

    • midgard229

      um the game is still challenging on nephlim, its still fun as hell. leagues better than dmc2, funny than dmc1 coming from someone who just beat that again. i played all games in the series multiple times.

      its a fantastic game. people are just crying. only prob for me is no taunt button

      • alto_angelo

        it’s fun
        but compared to older DMC series, it’s a downgrade, especially in the combat..

        and DMC series was always about fast paced stylish combat, not the story, not the platforming or cutscene…

        • shion16

          DMC 4 and 2 were upgrades?

          • Joshua Stamford

            4 was, at least with Dante…… Ok I don’t know anymore…
            But at least it wasn’t this bad.

          • Brion Valkerion

            4 is easily at least the second best in the franchise imo. Aside from all the “wah wah no Virgil, wah wah no Dante” the combat system was the best mix of DMC1 and 3 for Nero, and a good retooling of DMC3 for Dante. Sure the love story was a bit hammy but better than the non existant plot of the first two, and really weird moments of things when Dante and Virgil were not in the room together.

            That and 4 hands down had some of the best monster designs in the franchise (Blitz, Berial, Angelo Credo ect. ect.) All of Capcom games took a real hit in monster design after Lost Planet 2 for w/e reason. All the games after it just seem… like statues with goo monsters inside them. Dont know whats going on but hope they get it together again. Love the monsters their games usually, except for about the last 2-3 years.

            my real problems with the new game is the plot, its kinda like The Simpsons, where its trying so hard to be timely and relevant to the current news that it comes off uninteresting. Too much platforming, never liked those types of games lol. the whole thing is literally 2 colors, blue or orange throughout. and the odd changes to the combat system that seem like they made a half attempt to keep stuff in at the last second. Everything about the game feels forced in terms of the world presented and the characters personalities not natural at all.

            Could care less what Dante looks like, the actual game part has not really spoken too me. And if it is really good, well… Capcom never made a trailer that showed that to me yet.

          • midgard229

            your discredited once u said 4 was the 2nd worst. 2 is utter trash, i like 4 a lot but 3 is the best. but i agree with ur other statements. but this game is really fun thats all i have to say. the stoory is better than 1 and 2′s and 4′s.

          • http://www.facebook.com/aly.hesham.7 Aly Hesham

            The art design of DmC2013 was excellent.You can`t say that the game was blue or orange it looks very, very good.

          • AkuLord3

            yeah 4 was a uggrade…combat wise

          • alto_angelo

            4 was upgrade in combat
            dante have on fly style changing makes the combat in 4 the best of the series

            sure, the backtracking was horrible but combat in 4 hands down the best of dmc thanks to on fly style changing

            3 is better as a whole package

          • shion16

            interesting theory but theres a little problem
            Dante isnt the main character of DMC4, the main characters is Nero

          • alto_angelo

            and? even nero have more stylish combat and better character overall compared to donte..

            hell he only need 1 sword, 1 gun a grapple and DT yet his combat have more depth than donte..

            nero is interesting character, he is there to introduce people DMC since nero is easier and less complex than dante

            keep in mind DMC4 is 40% of the actual game, see the concept art and you will see they actually planned to give dante and nero separate campaign with dante having his own boss

        • midgard229

          lies about the cutscenes haha they were always my fav, well since 3 and 4.

          and the gameplay is still stylish. it wasnt in dmc1, and REALLY wasnt in 2. 2 was garbage, you killed everything with the guns and there was only 1 weapon with 4 skins, it was trash haha

      • KingRuff

        Lol the fact that you had to defend something he never mentioned proves that you don’t even believe what you are saying.

        • midgard229

          its because people complain about the dummest things. the frame rate, the hair and the difficulty. I beat dmc on dante must die, i beat dmc4′s bloody palace. this dmc isnt as easy as people say it is.

          the frame rate isnt 60 but its not bad at all.

          and if people are going to keep complaining then they need to wait for MG:revengeance, otherwise there are no other action games until bayonetta 2

      • AkuLord3

        DMC1 was never meant to be funny…and this game really isn’t and really its not that. Fantastic? no Alright? yeah

    • Tee Niitris

      Honestly, new Dante looks better for this game. Slapping silver hair on him just makes him look out of place.

  • Rayshawn Davis

    Wow, the classic look doesn’t really look all that good on him. Its not terrible, but not all that good either. I prefer how he originally looked.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephen-Mc-Devitt/100002626261475 Stephen Mc Devitt

    I guess I’ll have to get 20 euro PSN credit along with DmC if I want this and Journey.

  • http://www.facebook.com/rocky.cucuy Rocky Cucuy

    it seems just like yesterday, we were talking about how Capcom would release a Classic Dante skin for dlc….ohhh how the times fly by

  • Gallen

    This is blasphemy.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephen-Mc-Devitt/100002626261475 Stephen Mc Devitt

      If you mean by how Capcom will charge people more money to just to play classic Dante, then you’re right otherwise what you just said makes no sense and feels like flanderized parody of a typical rant against DmC.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    He looks like a poet in the top… wait!

    • Tails the Foxhound

      Sir, would you like your Internet delivered to you or will you picking this up on your own.

  • Angeru_Lito

    Forget it Capcom those “fans” will never accept the new Dante … though the whole “never in a million years” bit is amazing I loved that little jab and that’s something the old Dante would say so it fits even more.

  • TrevHead

    Is he wearing Diesel Jeans? If not it’s not the real Dante!

    BTW Looking at those pics the New Dante almost looks the part in combat.
    Looks like Andy Warhol in the close up though.

  • ZEROthefirst

    Now if only there was DLC to fix the horrible dialogue and the completely useless “Fuck” spewing fest that is this game’s specialty.

    • Kaihedgie

      Lemme guess, didn’t actually play the game?

      • Ferrick

        lemme guess, didn’t actually play the game? or atleast watched the walkthrough that included the cutscenes ? the game’s dialogue is basically a swearfest upto the final boss

        • Kaihedgie

          I saw the cutscenes and it isn’t.

          • Ferrick

            ok then… oh lookie what i have under my chair

            case 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UoIgcsH6t2g

            case 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lk_FxWbCX28

            yeahhhh case and point

            and for others, Spoilers alert on second vid

          • Kaihedgie

            Oh gawd, Vergil just said he has a bigger genitailia! THINK OF THE CHILDREN~

            Good gravy, are you people THIS sensitive? Clearly, you’ve not played House of the Dead Overkill.

            Also, this series has been rated M since the beginning so i fail to see the problem

          • Ferrick

            didn’t even bother to watch the second one eh ? fine, i will just pull back considering that its idiocy to try to start a flame war with a donte & vorgel fan

          • Kaihedgie

            You talk about idiocy but call Dante and Vergil by those silly little nicknames and complain about swearing in a series that’s been rated M since day one, which of course features lots of blood, gore here and there, sexual content and even expletives from some of the other characters

            What

          • Ferrick

            second vid, 37:42 , best dialogue ever, its sooo going to be GOTY 2013 *sarcasm flag*

          • Kaihedgie

            Still stuck on that one cutscene, huh? That one cutscene played up for laughs.

            Get over it already

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            @Ferrick:disqus @Kaihedgie:disqus

            Okay, that’s enough. If you want to talk, do it without provoking each other and disturbing other users. This is precisely why we have to be especially strict on DmC threads.

          • Kaihedgie

            I don’t think a whole lot of people care about that, so long as they get to have their complaints heard anywhere >:

          • ZEROthefirst

            Says the person who’s complaining the most about a game he hasn’t played, that or you’ve never played anything but shooters to base a good story off of.

          • Kaihedgie

            1: Not complaining about this game. I’m in support of it

            2: I don’t have a modern shooter to my name

            Nice assumptions you got there, pal

          • ZEROthefirst

            Good retort, I’m glad you’re trying.

          • Kaihedgie

            That’s not really a retort. You’re just getting upset over nothing

          • ZEROthefirst

            Should I make a video of myself crying, upload it on youtube and then send you the link?

          • Ferrick

            mundus final scene says hi, but enough about the swearfest, there are other things unlikeable about this game and its characters, and the “final boss” was nothing but a pushover (even though he dishes high damages, all of his attacks are telegraphed and easy to dodge) and my biggest gripe about the game is on how they made vorgel as easy as butter, even on DmD mode, he wasn’t THAT easy to beat in the original DMC3 (not the special edition one), hell he was very challenging on HoH difficulty, took me a few retries to beat him

          • Tien Ron

            and all i hear is bla bla bla and no i didn’t think vorgel was that hard on dmc3 but that’s just my opinion, i like this reboot it’s fresh and new and the swearing fits and is more believable that the old boring white hair red jacket Dante. i still like the old dante but i dont miss him.

          • Ferrick

            don’t play the special edition or the HD one for DMC3, its difficulty is toned down, especially in HoH mode, i fought against vergil without spamming helm splitter and stinger, and i’m telling you, its hard as hell, especially if you’re going for an SS on it (well unless if you have either godmode cheat on or godly timing with royal guard style)

            its not fresh (well maybe it is for this generation, who knows) and swearing isn’t a solution to make a good dialogue, amd to add dmc was never about swearing

          • puchinri

            I think the initial point is, the dialogue is incredibly stunted due to the over the top use of pointless f-bombs and not much actual dialogue. And the fact that this Vergil is immature enough to even make the statement (and that they just say bigger dick instead of larger balls or something) is so high school immature – maybe younger.

            It’s not being sensitive to what’s said, it’s the fact that there’s no real writing content. DMC never had to rely on f-bombs and whatever crap to move it along, even if the writing wasn’t stellar. I can’t take anything seriously (I mean, I couldn’t even take a parody seriously) if the only way they can talk to me is by talking to me like I never left middle school and am some kind of stereotypical frat boy.

          • Kaihedgie

            Last I recall, that’s exactly what DMC3 was doing and yet no one was losing their marbles over it

          • puchinri

            When was that? DMC3 rarely ever had any kind of strong language/cuss words, and Vergil was a much more subtle showman than Dante was (which was a huge part of the fun and what made the distinction – and similarities – between them that much more poignant).

          • Kaihedgie

            Vergil? Subtle?

            What. Vergil was just as big of a showoff as Dante, if not, moreso. He even regularly traded quips with him, too. “Main event”, anyone? And how about all of those hammy quotes while we’re at it. Not to mention, both the bosses Vergil had OHK’d were already greatly weakened by Dante

            DMC3 may not have a lot of swearing, but there was an awful lot of blood and fanservice. It basically had a more blunt version of Morrigan who didn’t even bother with clothes. And who wears nothing by a biker jacket and shorts to a demon hunt?

          • puchinri

            I think things like Vergil’s “sorry I didn’t prepare for the bash” and reserving his calm (mostly) and his lack of movement is a great comparison to show how subtle he was when put beside Dante; the same Dante that struts around, waves around weapons, speaks loud and often, makes note of it and will tell others to shut up because he should be the only one speaking.

            I was actually impressed by how the fanservice was handled in DMC3. I do think Lady’s outfit was intentionally sexual (not really sexualized often though, interestingly) and played to obvious fetishes, but they didn’t do a bad job there (compared to 4, where it got horrible). The blood and violence are a given and not a problem though. I also don’t think an excess of blood or violence are a problem with DmC. The fault really strongly lies in the dialogue (and language) to me. The fanservice is a weird case there, and I think the game’s problem is its general treatment of women versus just fanservice.

          • ZEROthefirst

            Don’t bother, this kid either just really doesn’t get the point of the subject here or he’s extremely bad at trolling.

          • puchinri

            I think you’re right. It seems he’s really missing what was being said. (I hope and assume he’s not trolling.)

    • puchinri

      When I finally heard the dialogue, I nearly fell out of my chair laughing. I rarely had heard anything so silly, immature and outright ridiculous in my life. It was made better by the fact that we have a friend who actually talks like that at times, and everytime, we look at him like an idiot for doing so (but we now joke that he wrote the script for the game).

  • revenent hell

    For those who didnt expect this id have to ask why,I seen it coming from the begining,a Dante costume that is.
    I think the charecter looks funny if not….worse…in neo dante garb….it dosent look good to me .
    For those who have played the game how does it appear thus far? Im not sure if siliconera had a playthrew of it on here or not yet but since I have no intention of buying it im curious what people think of it…and I dont mean “Its shit because its not a real DMC game” or “I love it because I like it” type of thing id prefer a analytical veiw of it,its flaws and bright spots…..
    Though im not sure if its possible. So few will see a flaw in a game they adore and so few can see a highlight in a game they hate and with this game ive seen very few middle grounders.I hope this didnt offend since I did ask a question but even this game aside I think its fair to say this is the norm for most games anyways

            Yes, they do. Pretty much any Bobby Kotick article is full of angry fans. There’s tons of pictures of him with satan horns and devil eyes. Even Square gets criticized roundly.

    • Fr33Kingdom

      They should wait until everyone finished the game a month ago and it’s far away from their minds and on their shelves…

  • Göran Isacson

    Have to say I prefer the original Dante-look to Crow!Dante and… the one where Dante just looks like he put on a rain-coat. Can’t say much about that one though, that screen-shot doesn’t really let me know what it looks like.

    Was Neo Dante based on Brandon Lee’s portrayal as The Crow?

    • Valtiel Ikari

      don’t know, looks like it, but Lee pulls the look 1000000 better than this.

  • MrRobbyM

    I think the original character design looks best but all of these look great too. The original Dante hair looks a bit off but the rest of the costume look great. Will totally get this.

  • ElRobotico

    Crybabies should be happy now.

  • Setsuna ♥

    “First round of DLC” So they’ll be more … I’m renting the game from work … sorry Capcom but you’re not getting a penny more out of me since SFxT

    • MrRobbyM

      As long as it’s costumes, I don’t see a problem. If it’s more story content, then yeah. I see the problem.

      • Tien Ron

        because….there not allowed to make extra stuff after the game is released….?

  • Tien Ron

    i was kinda hoping that they wouldn’t put old Dante or a reference to him… but oh well i hope in the sequels he dons;t have complete white hair i kinda liked the contrast he had in DmC

  • Valtiel Ikari

    sheeash, the only costumes decent is classic dante, the rest (specially Neo Dante) show Antoniades complete lack of style, still, it not about the crimson coat and white hair NT, is about the character persnality, the mithos and spcecially the gameplay, and NT failed at it, badly.

  • Fr33Kingdom

    I think all the skins look really cool….

  • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

    Putting this comment in here, since there isn’t any other relevant topic at the moment (although, our playtest will be going up this weekend), but huge, huge respect for Ninja Theory and Capcom for pulling DmC off.

    It takes balls to do this kind of thing, and “fans” gave them hell for it all the way through, but they stuck to their guns, made a good game, and were appropriately acknowledged for it, which is heartwarming to see.

      I agree. Preferences aside, being able to make something like this in the face of a massive hate-fueled pressure is no small feat. At least their tenacity paid off.

    • Kaihedgie

      Unfortunately, that sentiment is only shared by the most level-headed of people. Everyone else just content with flinging crap and mass downvoting everything even ever so slightly positive or complimentary.

        Your view is just as one-sided. It doesn’t matter how good a game is received if the core elements the fans love (Characters and Depth of combat) are removed. If you are a fan of these games for those reasons, this game isn’t for you…

        And much like Castlevania, if the reboot is successful say goodbye to the classic style you love. It doesn’t matter how good of a game it is if you don’t like that game style.

          “It doesn’t matter how good of a game it is if you don’t like that game style.”

          Only for those who decide “quality” solely on preference. Regardless of who likes it or not, a game’s strengths and weakness aren’t invalidated.

          • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

            Sure, but you have to see things from both sides. I think both sides are totally valid, But if a drastic reboot is ultra successful the old fans are essentially thrown into a ditch.

            But luckily for DMC fans Bayonetta is the rightful successor to DMC1 anyway.

          • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

            If they still feel victimized after getting 4 games (plus 1 “spiritual successor”), and having rudely and inconsiderately pressured a developer from start to finish, that’s really selfish of them – I don’t know how else I can put it.

    • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

      Not to sound down on the game, but there are plenty of “Gritty” Western Reboots of beloved Japanese series. I don’t really see anything Ballsy about it.

      • http://wiredjungle.wordpress.com/ DrakosAmatras

        Don’t underestimate the kind of discouragement this magnitude of hate can instill in an average person. Being able to complete a project to favorable critical acclaim in that situation isn’t run-of-the-mill tenacity.

      • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

        It’s easy for you to sit back and say that, but game development is incredibly difficult and expensive. It involves lots of money, lots of stress, lots of compromise to your social life, family commitments and self-esteem, and all of that other good stuff.

        It’s very, very easy to pooh-pooh a game or say it isn’t risky, but the amount of unnecessary venom that’s been spewed at this game and the development team is as astounding as it is pathetic. The fact that those guys managed to push past it and deliver a good game isn’t something that any average developer could do.

        • Valtiel Ikari

          and what about many of Tameems many “mistakes” in regards of the handling and promotion of the franchise?

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Most of those are two years old and the response has been very different since then. I’d say the lesson was learned.

          • Valtiel Ikari

            Thanks for the calm responce.
            But I was refering in the aspect of many say that the hate NT and this game get is blind, leaving totaly a side many of the taunts and contradictions Tameem have commit, for example, once he said that Uncharted was bad because the face animations where too exagereted, and thats why NT is better than them, then, in another interview he pretty much kiss the floor that Uncharted developers step on, clarefieng that he was put “out of context” afther the emails he got, so he have won many enemies, not only Devil May Cry die hard fans, he is just pretty bad when its come to marketing. (I used this example because I guess people are tired of listening to the same old complaints)

          • SerendipityX

            I think maybe the problem lies with Tameem giving a “bad” first impression on fans. It just kinda stuck with them all the way to release.

          • Valtiel Ikari

            probably, maybe he was traing to act up to the spectations in a aggressive aproach, and it didn’t go as planned.

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            I don’t think Tameem has anything to apologize for. He was asked for his honest feelings about the old DMC series and he gave them. Clearly, Capcom shared those sentiments or DmC wouldn’t exist in the first place.

            People need to grow up and get over it. Dude had the balls to give a straight answer when asked a question. Most developers don’t do that, and this kind of behaviour from fans is the reason why.

            EDIT: Oh, and guess what? Thanks to you lot, Capcom won’t let the press go anywhere near Tameem, as you may have noticed in recent months. All of the recent Q&As and presentations and whatnot have excluded Tameem. So yeah, good job with that!

          • Valtiel Ikari

            why so aggresive? I was asking a honest question. Since a lot of people say that the game and Tameem gets so much venom, but they never mention his mistakes that fueled many of the rage, he pretty much is victimased in avery article, like he never taunted the fan base, I know that he has probably learned his lesson, but just curious, no need to get so aggresive whit me, and hey, maybe is for the best that he is excluded, since obviously capcom doesn’t want him to commit more mistakes that could affect more the game sales performance, anyway, he pretty much said everything he needed to say.

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            To be honest, I don’t think Tameem ever “taunted” the fan base. Look outside of videogames every once in a while. Comic book creators and movie directors speak their minds freely about whatever pre-conceived notions they feel their audience may have. I don’t see why videogame developers should be treated any differently.

          • Valtiel Ikari

            actually, he did, he even admits it,in an interview he says that he wanted to make fans react in the way they are reacting, but latter in another interview he retracts of what he said afther he couldn’t take the heat, victimising himself.
            He wanted this in order to make the game popular, and was hoping for things to calm down afther revealing more of the game and was expecting for people to accept his taste on what cool and if I remember right he said that he didn’t care about old fans, and in the interview is detayled how he said it, and it was in a very arrogant way, so he has provoked the fanbase, is just that things didn’t go acording to his plan, consisting in stir up the fanbase, make the game know, and winning them over whit his taste visualy and story wise

        • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

          Perhaps the same could be said of all games…

          EDIT: But Seriously, It can be said of most games. Look at how many people are mad that Metal Gear Rising has a cyborg ninja that does… Well… Typical Cyborg Ninja stuff.

          Or how many people were mad that ME3 didn’t have a typical Final Epic Boss fight. Hell, some people are still mad to this day that RE4 focused more on combat that pixel hunting.

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            I think it’s fair to say that Metal Gear Rising hasn’t seen even 1% of the kind of venom and blind hate that DmC has. Platinum and Kojima have had a very cozy time with it, which is incredibly ironic because Rising has obviously had a far more troubled development history than DmC by KojiPro’s own admission.

            Edit: You know what… I’m willing to bet Rising won’t get as good reviews as DmC did.

          • Tonton Ramos

            Rising won’t get as good reviews as DMC did? Well that depends on IGN’s or Gamespot’s opinion and the mass dislikes in youtube…

          • Kaihedgie

            The mass dislikes are from people still whining about it and actively trying to kill it. I won’t be surprised if the ratings won’t be as high

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            This is just my opinion (and I have to point out I haven’t personally played Rising myself) but MGR just doesn’t look as well put-together as DmC does. Blade mode/the ability to cut things into little pieces using the analog stick looks kind of out of place?

            I mean, here’s Raiden doing crazy fast combos, and then you have to slow down in the middle of them to waggle your analog stick? That looks a little disjointed to me, personally. I guess we’ll find out soon enough, but right now I do get the feeling that DmC will turn out to have the better reviews.

  • dahuuuundge

    “not in a million years” they said

    • Ferrick

      i guess in that universe a million years equates to 3 days in our world

  • Richard N

    It’s funny, I recall a lot of people complaining how this game better come with an alternate costume as Classic Dante. And now that we’re gonna get it….

    Heh, oh well, game’s doing really well for itself. That’s more than enough to make me laugh at all the whining.

  • LynxAmali

    Beat it yesterday.

    Too many puzzles separating the combat but amazing stage design.
    Good combat (albeit rather gimmicky but goddamn, it is enjoyable ‘gimmicky’)
    Great idea for a story but terrible execution.

    Also;
    skins=good. If only they’d change the dialogue via the skins like some games do.

    Though I wasn’t really a fan of the characters, aside from Kat. Even then, pretty forgettable.

  • puchinri

    Well, his face is still really ugly. And that other outfit is kind of goofy (but almost cool). I just can’t get over how like. . . hipster he looks or something. It made me feel hipster for even thinking it. >u<

    • Elvick

      IMO, his face has always been ugly. xP

      Not as ugly as new Dante’s original CG face that pissed everyone off though.

      • puchinri

        Yeah, haha, there hasn’t been any fixing that sadly.

        True! Which is fortunate. I give them some credit for trying, but it’s kind of bad that it was that ugly in the first place. x’D;

  • Quinton Cunningham

    Game is getting stellar reviews and people are still bashing it. Don’t kid yourselves. The only objectively REALLY good classic DMC game is 3, and it has aged pretty badly thanks to its awful camera.

    • puchinri

      I sometimes have trouble with reviews. At the end of the day, I think reviews can be okay, but it’s about how a reviewer’s taste may reflect your own. After all, they’re just opinions, right?

      If a reviewer is honest enough to say that the dialogue of this game is horrible but the actual gameplay is good, I’d find that to be someone I can trust.

    • http://twitter.com/SteveMcQuark Zack Bentley

      Most reviewers said Borderlands 2 had amazing writing too. And that game was mostly internet memes and overdone pop culture references.

  • Charmchar

    hum take all of that off you impostor, before i tell Dante.

  • Guest

    I have no problem with the game, I have a problem with the developers. over the past week since this game’s released I’ve seen comments saying ‘this game is awesome for a prequel to the DMC games’ these kind of comments have come about because capcom and ninja theory couldn’t make up their stupid minds with where they wanted to go with this game. then all of a sudden it’s a spin off. THEN it’s a alternate timeline and then FINALLY they come out and say it’s a reboot I’ve played the game, and thought it was okay, for a generic hack and slash.
    But to have the DMC brand behind it though hypes the game up to which it just doesn’t meet it’s expectation. The platforming on it feels out of place and seems awkward and there’s no need for it throughout most of the levels the platforming is the same you simply use your angel/devil hook to pull yourself closer or to pull parts closer to you.

    This DLC though is something I don’t understand, they wanted this new look because the Classic Dante was outdated and now they’ve gone and put the classic dante look into the game (but it looks creepy) I see a lot of comments saying that the gameplay is really good and they’ve really made this Dante stand out. How? the freakin’ moveset is practically the same as the Classic Dante, there’s barely anything new within his skills. yeah the demon and angel weapons are a nice touch but they messed that up by specifically making me use one weapon for enemies later in the game which felt like a hassle. god forbid if there’s 2 enemies that need seperate weapons to attack and they’re close together.

    I’m not going to talk on the dialogue of the game it’s embarrassing to think about and makes me cringe and just makes me think ‘Why?’
    the environments are nice and colourful though and i’m glad they kept the bloody palace in.

  • Kaihedgie

    How is it possible that little to no one actually talked about the costumes and instead either came here to review or whine about the game itself

    What the heck have gamers turned into these days? D:

    • Tonton Ramos

      Gamers are not dumb as kiddies we need understand not just the game or “oh gamers need to play and enjoy the game and that’s there only job nothing else” but we need the knowledge of the developer’s doing and the business details otherwise we didn’t know about the disk locked content, forgotten legends, lag problems and more… This isn’t fun and games this is also learning.

      • Richard N

        Meh. You can throw me in with the sheep and just want to play games and thats it. If it’s fun it’s fun, which is what I believe Games should be.

  • Isaac Newton

    I wish that DmC will be a huge success so that they will go back to the original story.

    Abs….

      Now the game will sell more.

  • http://twitter.com/VahnFannel Van Fanel

    It doesn’t fix the framerate or the gameplay though.

  • Bass_Ventura_

    It’s just not the same!!!!! Uwwwaaaaaahhhh!~

  • Tonton Ramos

    Hope it’s not disk locked content…

  • Bobby Jennings

    Please don’t start that…

  • Landale

    An outfit change isn’t going to really do anything for nostalgia. Nor is trying for some nostalgia going to do anything for the game.
    However, given that the game’s outfit section specifically refers them as outfits AND perks, if the classic look does something like put a lock on function onto one of the two dodge buttons and adapts some of the controls to work with that that would be more of an incentive to get the pack. Because as good as the game is, even with all the defense I’ve given the game over it’s development, now that I’ve gotten my hands on it the controls just REALLY do make it feel not like a Devil May Cry, having the option to set the controls to a more familiar style would do more to appease nostalgia than giving the guy white hair and a red coat.
