Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
DmC: Devil May Cry - Ignore the OP/outrage, it's pretty damn good.
So, this morning Capcom announced the fifth title in the Devil May Cry series, simply titled "DmC." Instead of being developed by the folks over at Capcom, the company has decided to take a bit of a risk by handing off the franchise to Heavenly Sword developer, Ninja Theory. Odd right? Well, the screens is where the game starts to get really weird.
That, my friends, is series regular Dante. You know, the white haired, cocky, wisecracking anti-hero we all know and love? That's him.
I'd post more direct feed shots but they're all fairly large so instead I'll direct you to the Kotaku gallery, here.
Now, I've been a long time DMC fan. I've bought all of the games (yes, including 2) and even bought DMC3 twice. So as I series veteran I can't help but look at these screens and think "WHAT IN THE FUCKING FUCK!?" Or something similar. Seriously, "Dante" looks like the heroin addicted front man of some slimy basement punk band. He looks more at home in an AFI video than in the "stylish action" genre that the first DMC game basically created.
