It reminds me of the goat scene from Drag Me To Hell.
Looks like a dumb self-aware game. I like that. There's nothing inherently bad about a crazy, childish game.
I want Heavenly Sword 2 dammit.
The only reason I own a PS3, and I regret nothing.
Buying it ? Based on good performance ? Did you hit your head men,its Ninja Theory we are talking here,they make interesting characters and good story,but gameplay suck i ntheir games,and seing this is DMC we are talking about here..
... I take the lives of a few to protect the lives of many. I commit acts of war to preserve the greater peace. I take no joy in killing, but make no mistake; I'll do what needs to be done. Because it's my job. It's my duty. My name is Sam Fisher, and I am a Splinter Cell.
The performance is good, I'll give it that. Unquestionably the PC is the best version for the game. Combat heavy games like this do need to be played at higher frame rates, they just do. That said...
Now out of playing DMC1/4, I won't say I was ever amazing at the game. I think I hit SS combo a few times, with great difficulty. You know why even that was great? Because it was a real effort and achievement to get that. So with the above video, screw that. If you're going to make it that damn easy, no. No I won't play your game. Reviews have painted it in good light, but I can't play a game with that much stupidity. And the kicker? You don't lose your rank unless you get hit. Marvellous that. I also hate the character design. The original oozed cool.
Guess I'll be waiting on Bayonetta getting a PC port, as unlikely as that is.
I'm glad the performance is good on PC but I played the demo on PS3 and found it a bit boring at certain parts. I don't think it will be bad game but definitely not a day one purchase for me, I'll wait a year (or maybe less) and consider picking it up in a really cheap Steam sale.
And here I was excited they ported DMC to PC.
Nope, it's just the shitty DMC5 ruining the "only odd numbered DMC games are good" rule again
Looked quite impressive, until I saw the CPU to be Core i7 3960X. This test isn't that indicative I'm afraid. But still, that's awesome.
Japanese hack-n-slash games generally don't have up to standard AI to talk about. That's the primary reason they do not require NASA machines to perform well.
Wow, I'd really been put off by the new Dante and the whole smash-the-state shit, but aside from the stupid haircut (and I'm struggling to think of a single game character without a stupid haircut) he's a wee bit lovely, isn't he? Actual charisma, not an affected imitation of it. I miss the goofy bravado, but this seems a viable alternative.
So we've seen that the game's really nice about giving you the SS ranking, but do we know about overall difficulty? One doesn't necessarily indicate the other, and I can see how the old games' habit of constantly putting up huge C and D grades all over the screen* wouldn't really mesh with the modern expectation that a AAA title will basically blow the average player every few minutes. But even these games include higher difficulty settings, so that kindness alone doesn't have to mean the game will be without challenge. I'm more concerned about the Ninja Theory pedigree, since gameplay's usually quite far down their priority list. It certainly looks fun, but we all know Ninja Theory can do looks.
*admittedly, they presented those grades in the nicest way possible, but it only took about three seconds to see through that
WHY WOULD THEY REBOOT THE FUCKING SERIES AND NOT JUST CONTINUE IT
By Ninja Theory making the style rank that easy, they ruin one of the best subtle concepts of the game, which was to constantly make yourself better. So, the game might feel fun, but I can't help but think it's only going to be shallow, even if there are more combos available than people have seen etc. I say this without playing the demo, but it seems to match what previous fans of DMC have said; this will be a good action game, but not a good DMC game.
On this type of games, I always get stuck on some boss.
Sometimes I go back with a infinite health cheat and finish the game that way.
Is a small gem, a genuine piece of art :-O
This game.. I would watch somebody play. I like the game, has a rithm to it.
As playing.. .I would get stuck on the first big boss, then not have much fun with the game. So is not my tea cup.
