I actually got it for my birthday.
They aren't too bad, really, except I wish the cutscenes were worked on a bit, especially the ones in the first game.

(Side note: I got farther in DMC3 in the HD collection than on my Steam version, yet still have not completed it! )

As for the topic of DmC....

I can't convince Eric to let us get a PS3 with this subject STILL. XD

Me: Here's a reason to get a PS3!
Eric: Hmm... *looks* Okay so DMC HD... It looks like the old DMC games I HAVE ALREADY. And I'm not getting a gaming console out of my own pocket because there's like 4 games I want to play on it. It's gotta be like the Ps1 and Ps2... There has to be an immense amount of games. And don't try to sell me on PSN.. I know I KNOW you can get Legend of Dragoon and some older games but I ALREADY HAVE THEM. Besides you haven't even beaten your Tales of Legendia game...
Me: But it's not Kousuke Fujishima art. I want a Tales that's worth playing with the correct character design. Not the hacks that did Blue Submarine!
Eric: ... semantics Sarah... semantics.

T^T

Hate to bring this back from the dead, but here's some more stuff:

The newly announced release date is set to Jan. 13th, 2013 right now, so that at least gives them plenty of time to show us their real game and realize it's way past April Fools.

And a new trailer!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wOXNwPD-a5s

"My name, by the way, is Dante. But you can call me Dante the Demon Killer, has a nice ring to it, don't you think?"

Seriously, what is this? :|
That line is just so... Poorly thought and lame...

I hate their idea of "wit" thrown into that whole trailer. It was all just him being a d***. And if this game is just about him going and killing random demons at rave parties, then there's no hope at all.

However, I do like how the action is displayed in it, and I still love the idea of a scythe as a weapon :3. And I do like that one quote, "Citizens, face your demons".

I've been digging into this a little bit more, and I'm also getting a lot of word of mouth stuff, so bare that in mind:

From what I've gathered, Capcom has given them the rights to ReBoot the series, so this isn't just a parody game, it's a full on new re-release of what the series is going to turn into.

The system, yes, I will admit, looks great. However, no matter how amazing the game system is, when everything is lacking, it makes for a poor game.

From word-of-mouth, the Ninja guys sent in original art for capcom to say yay or nay to, and apperenly they shot down all the old art that kept Dante who he was, and told them to remake him entirely.

The biggest thing that everyone is having an issue with, is not the fact that Dante was changed, it was the fact Dante now looks like the Head Ninja Guy. It was that egotistical move that pissed off diehard fans of the series.

I seriously doubt this would have been an issue if he wasn't molded into a splitting image. (refer to the first few posts of this thread)

A few other issues that raised from this are what they did with Dante's personality. Yes, we all know Dante as the badass demon hunter who has a smartass personality, but form what they have show, is he's no longer just a smart ass, but just an asshole in general. I doubt the fact he now smokes made anyone too happy either. (My money says they gave him Camels to smoke)

Dante was kinda the "too cool for drugs" type, as he was depicted as the guy who got off and his job (and pizza), and not needing any external sources of chemical influences.

Also an interesting note, if they do decide to keep going with this, I can only hope that they keep going with an ongoing thing they were playing with:

Apperently Devil May Cry exists in the same timeline as the Shin Megami Tensei games. Refer to Nocturne, for Dante was an optional boss.

Also, from what I gather, part of their apology to gamers, they made Dante's new Devil Trigger give him blonde hair. (Even though the new DT is now just an aerial combo stunt.)

So, being a diehard Devil May Cry fan, I can honestly say that if the -only- thing that's diffrent about our new Dante is his retarded character model, I can forgive it. But if the story blows, he keeps up with this asshole personality, and doesn't give up the substance abuse, it will just kill the game. (In my opinion)

Being a somewhat new fan to the series, I'm not really sure what to think about this game.
I can agree that the way that they made Dante look here is just beyond horrible and enexceptable and other stuff, but it's just a look placed in one game, so what harm is it? It's probably not even completely related to the whole Devil May Cry series. Hopefully it's just a "What If?" type of game.
Anyways, I saw the gameplay trailer of this, and while I still had problems with how bad Dante looked, I had to admit that the action and such looked pretty cool. Kinda to the point in which I decided to pre-order it when I can. Seriously, if the way a character looks always hold us ck from playing a game, we'd miss out on a lot of pretty cool stuff. If the action is cool, the story is good, and the music is good, then (as long as the character doesn't look too horrible) I have no problem.
Anyways, it looks alright so far, excluding Dante's new look, so I shall be the first and last one to buy the game

This appears to be photoshopped. I can't be sure, though.

Well like I said above I personally think Enslaved was pretty solid, good characters, cool setting/atmosphere, gameplay could've used a little more depth but yeah.

... that said I won't miss them. But yes, I'm hearing the same thing. Most of their games have bombed in sales, so this could be the deal breaker.

I might have to try that game out when I bring back god of war 3.

Right now, that's the popular hope. In this gaming company's death, we will never have to deal with their arrogant, shitty ass quality of games ever again.

Never, EVER, try to be egotistical, or arrogant, without a base. These guys have never made a quality game, and are acting like they are the top gaming company ever.

I mean take a look at the revamp of Mortal Kombat. The Company that is doin that just took and remade the original game and gave the characters new suits that still look a lot like the old ones. I must say that i love what they are doin with it.
