road to 1k in devil may cry hd collection + my reasons against the new DmC
for 1 week now i have been playing the new dmc hd collection not only is this a overload of nolstagia for me but the chance to play dmc3 for the first time and challenge myself to 100% all 3 games has been a fun but brutal task. as of right now im 6 missions away from s ranking all dmc3 missions (on easy seriously) and halfway through hard (had to restart vergil due to being in yellow orb mode). as of 4 days ago i got all 33 achievements in dmc1 and i am over halfway their on dmc2 ( stupid fish boss is tough on dante must die) and it got me thinking devil may cry has been a favourtie series of mine (though the elder scrolls is my most favourite +3000 hours on oblivion
) and after the captivate trailer revealed more about the new DmC it saddens me to think how ninja theory despite making good games have butchered the DmC we all loved and played. now just to be clear i like the gameplay it looks awesome and better then ever. my issue is with the story, dantehimself and capcoms inclusion of this as a prequel to Dmc3 (which is pure awesomeness) which is fine but i ahev quite a few issues with this. i have been a fan since the original came out on ps2 then got dmc2 sadly i went to my first nextgen by the time i learnt of dmc3+the speacial edition being out. anyway issue one the story DmC's story is dante was in an orphanage which was ran by demons where they tortured him for being soon of sparda fair enough makes since.
WARNING DMC1+3 SPOILER AHEAD DO NOT READ IF INTRESTED IN PLAYING THEM.
ok so dantes mother eva died to protect vergil and dante from a demon attack and it makes sense they were orphaned at a young age (since sparda mysteriously vanished i think ) anyway so question 1 is where is vergil in this. i mean vergil's his brother at some point they fight and become enemies far enough but surely they would have stuck together and helped each other out.
my second issue and a major one is the new dante. ok aso far he has been half human and demon through 1+2+3+4 thats why dante is powerful because humans have mercy, compassion, love and a soul making them superior to demons which is fair and makes sense. BUT the new dante is half human half angel. i wish this was a joke but its true while it makes a good gameplay mechanic it goes against the canon for the whole plot of the toehr 4 games this is a prequel for. and how is he half angel half demon. his mother was a human and fatehr was a demon it just doesnt make sense.
my third and final issue is the the game is canon and confirmed prequel of dmc 3 which to me is a big no. no matter what or how they explain this he cannot magically turn into a half human/demon from half angel just no.
sorry to have gone on but this subject has been strong for me and while i wish ninja theory good luck on the game (for hardcore dmc fans they are gonna need it) i hope capcom can explain why/ how the have just about destroyed a much loved and highly praised game series.
