Looks good in motion considering its from the guy who did DMC1.
But the art and the personality for the main character is just horrible, it's a shame because this is in my top favorite genre, hate to see it go this way.

I will just wait for NGS2.

Finally some more media!!! Graphics arent particularly impressive but my god, gameplay looked insane!!!! as cool as DMC, I have to say. First day purchase for me :)

Dante goes transsexual... that's how ou translate Bayonetta lol
I find the main character really ugly in anatomy porportions. What the hell was the lead designer thinking?!
Looks good, but doesn't change much from DMC4, even the environments and bosses look similar, and you know most will buy this game just because they have a small possibility to see a virtual women body naked.
You know it's true! XD

How can we make a rip off of a great game like DMC? I know lets put a chick that gets half naked in it come on it workedfor bullet witch right?

Looks like the game that DMC4 should have been but never was. I'm pretty hyped now.

How can the creator of a series possibly rip himself off?

This game looks like an explosion of imagination and creativity. Got to love the Platinum/Clover guys. Take note developers of generic soldier games, THIS is what video games should look like.

Gameplay looks identically to DMC. NOthing new to me until now. Let´s wait till we get more significant vids and previews.

what the hell are you smoking guys , this game ROCKS don`t you see it , you better go to sleep maybe you will get a different view !!!!!!!

In a nutshell, they grab DMC, make it faster, more hectic and WAY MORE ugly design wise.
Commented on 2009-04-10 12:59:40
What looks like Boss battles looks extremely cool. I don't care whether its DMC like or not, it looks cool and fun on its own.

Day 1 purchase for me. Why?

- gameplay looks amazing compared to other games from the genre this gen
- Platinum Games + Hideki Kamiya

Looks awesome. I just wish the contrast for/on this weren't so messed up
Commented on 2009-04-10 13:49:14
Does this game even run at 720p? They always release resized images and trailers.

What other games in this genre in this gen?

The only ones that are top notch are NG and DMC (even though I prefer NG than DMC anyday).

Mh... DMC it good... so more games like DMC must be good too. :D
Well from the gameplay and some characteristics of the maincharacter, it really looks a lot like DMC. But the style, character art, scenario, colors, music and just everything is really different. It would be much cooler if it was more like DMC. But hey, I like most of the stuff that I have seen, but I dislike the music and the characters.

will be banned in the US because of nudity and it will be banned in Germany because of its violence xDDD

not too impressive visually but its gameplay seems to be quite crazy^^ but will they ever improve the gameplay featured on all the DMCs before? i really liked the acrobatic stuff Stranglehold did.
Commented on 2009-04-10 15:48:25
liking it, big fan of DMC so definitely interested

To be fair though you only played DMC2 which is terrible and nothing like the other two.

That said, yeah I'd give NG the nod too, just for being better structured and having absolutely no superfluous mechanics.

I really love the look of this. I think where people find this ugly, I just find it very different. It lets off a completely different vibe design wise that isn't comparable to directly but reminds me a bit about the sheer oddness found in PS3 game Folklore. It's bound to rub a few people the wrong way, but I really like it when they move away from the established, idolized looks and give it an entirely different spin. I'm also a fan of odd proportions in characters when it makes them look good. Ie: Eternal Sonata - not so much!

Personally, I wouldnt even put DMC and NG in the same category. They are totally different games for me even though they belong in the same genre-ish
Commented on 2009-04-10 18:31:16
Looks fun, I really like the off the wall approach of the whole project and the outlandish powers and moves, definitely seems to have more of a sense of humour than many previous hack and slash titles.

Still, not really my genre...

Day One purchase for me - insane action, looks mesmerizing! Graphically it also doesn't look that bad either, nice textures ;)

Simon you are joking right? Since when do you know what I play and what I don't, we hardly speak here in the forums.

I have played all DMC games except DMC3 (didn't have a PS2 when it came out and don't intend to buy it now either to play it on PS3).
Commented on 2009-04-10 19:36:04
Well that's what I alluded to because we've talked about this before. I seemed to recall it being that you'd only played 2, but sure, 1 and 2 and then you refuse to play the best one. That's just as bad!! :P
Commented on 2009-04-10 19:46:45
Well I bought DMC1 and 2 at the same time when I bought a PS2, but when I sold my PS2 DMC3 wasent out, and I don't want to buy the game now.

And no it's not as bad, DMC titles doesn't interest me that much to go out and get DMC3.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (29 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (40 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (42 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (46 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (47 minutes ago)
