Wot I Think: Enslaved – Odyssey To The West

By Jim Rossignol on October 29th, 2013.


It’s been three years since Enslaved debuted on consoles, and it seems almost criminal that it didn’t get a full-price PC release at that time. Now though, someone has flicked the porting switch somewhere in the depths of Namco Bandai, and a PC version of the game has materialised on Steam. I had a play through Ninja Theory’s beautiful and ambitious action game, and the scribbled Wot I Think on the back of the internet.

Enslaved: Odyssey To The West Journeying To PC

By Nathan Grayson on October 11th, 2013.

Wait, you dropped your glasses and also if it is not too much trouble I would like to eat you.

I don’t know about you, but I actually thought DmC: Devil May Cry (that’s the new one, for those not well-versed in entirely redundant acronyms) was pretty great. Dumb, stupid, and also dumb but very pretty, its brand of stylish bravado won me over with a mix of fast action and sly, creeping smiles. So then, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. It was developer Ninja Theory’s previous game, and it’s been console-only for agonizing eons. It is, however, a lovingly crafted, exceedingly well-acted tale set in an actually-beautiful-looking-for-goddamn-once post-apocalyptic world. I played it on one of them Exbawkseseses back in the day, and I really liked it a lot. Maybe you will too when it comes to PC later this month.

Reimagining Evil: Ninja Theory On DmC’s Cultural Satire

By Paul Walker on January 30th, 2013.

There was an unexpected element to DmC: Devil May Cry. It was always going to be about smashing up demons. It was always going to feature weapon-switching, combo-building, score-chasing, and combat tech-fests. What was possibly more of a surprise was it being an outlandish political satire which takes aim at consumer culture, finance and banking, surveillance society, and right-wing media. Ninja Theory’s Dominic Matthews explains the role satire plays in DmC’s cultural commentary on evil.

Wot I Think: DMC – Devil May Cry

By Adam Smith on January 15th, 2013.

It is entirely possible that the graffiti is symbolising something. But what?

Devil May Cry: Devil May Cry is a reboot, designed by a new studio and starring a new character with an old (old) name. Dante’s back with a new attitude, a new haircut and a new voice. He loves the ladies but he really hates The Man, and when he settles into the rhythm of demon-killing and corporate takedowns, he’s surprisingly good company. Here’s wot I think.

Don’t Cry: DmC Definitely Coming To PC In January

By Nathan Grayson on December 14th, 2012.

If Dante ever poses in a way that could be considered practical or camera-friendly, that's when we'll know Capcom's truly lost sight of what the series is all about.

Oh we of little faith. When Capcom confirmed that a PC version of Ninja Theory’s DmC: Devil May Cry reboot was in the works, Jim was understandably skeptical about it taking the elevator up from hell around the same time as its console cousins. But Dante’s not like everyone else. He’s a rebel. He wears leather and makes snarky comments and gets branded a “sexual deviant” by news casters on a network named after a dinosaur. So naturally, his new game will come screaming onto PC whenever it damn well pleases. In this case, that’s next month. Hooray!

DmC: Devil May Will Probably Be Released On Windows

By Jim Rossignol on November 21st, 2012.


As previously noted, Capcom have said that Ninja Theory’s Devil May Cry game, DmC, will appear on Windows. There’s no release date for that, of course, so it’s bound to be well after the January release of the console versions, but it gives me plenty of time (and reason) to link the backlog of videos that we have neglected. With Ninja Theory at the controls there’s good reason to expect this game to be a little different to previous outings – and Capcom purists are already making objectionable honking noises. And it’s looking not looking as ludicrous as the previous games, but it’s still pretty mad. (And I am not a fan of nu-Dante.)

Anyway, lots of gameplay footage below.
