I'm not trying to insult anyone but...

This shit has GOT to stop NOW.

All this bitching about New Dante and Ninja Theory and DmC in general is so fucking old!

This rant is inspired by all the brave folk who have ranted, and gladly recieved hate comments from haters.

Anyhoo, on to the rant :)

So, there are a number of reasons that DMC fans have conjured up to hate DmC. All the reasons are VERY stupid. I mean so stupid, that it defies all Physics of gaming. Like, how New Dante looks, or the gameplay, or even whether or not that New Dante looks like Tameem or not.

His appearance is one of the main complaints. They have went from him looking like Edward Cullen to him looking like Tameem himself; and along side the way, even considered him looking like Rihanna. He looks like NEITHER OF THEM. Perhaps Tameem took a few traits from other people to base his character design? Who knows? WHO CARES? True gamers wouldn't even consider character design. If character design was all that mattered in the gaming world, games like Banjo Cazooy (or however you spell it) or Crash Bandicoot wouldn't even be looked at. Or considered for that matter.

Gamers' tip 01: Storyline is one of the main traits that matter in a videogame.

I'm no gamer (God knows I don't have time for that), but I do know that if you consider character looks over storylines then you're no gamer either. The game could have the worse graphics ever and still be considered a five-star videogame. Take Final Fantasy VII for instance. The characters are nothing but chibi box-like figurines that have nubs for hands. The battle system graphics make them look more human like, and the CGI is off the wall (Considering it was a 1997 videogame). Yet the storyline is amazing. Psychological, as my brother would put it; all of it separated on to three black and white disks. The game itself sprouted several sequels and two prequels. More than any other FF game created(Kingdom Hearts doesn't really count as an FF game because it features Disney and Final Fantasy at the same time).

Bleh. I know that no one is gonna read this, so why do I bother?

Oh right, the rant.

Anyhoo, another main complaint is on the slowness of the gameplay. Yeah, umm...watch a DmC gameplay video and be sure to not miss the beginning where it says "Work in progress gameplay". Doesn't take a genius to think that MAYBE the gameplay is slow because its not yet finished. I mean, COME ON! Use some freakin' common sense!

Oh wait, common sense is uncommon in society these days. I forgot.

But it really doesn't take a genius to figure that part out. Really. My seven year old cousin can figure that out. Duh.

Dante's origins in the game are another huge controversal thing. He's half angel, half demon, which isn't so bad if you think about it. It sure helps me out with my OC Night, who is part angel and part demon as well. Who knows? Perhaps New Dante is Dante's son in another universe? It would make a hell of a storyline.

Then there is his smoking issue that was ranted upon back in 2010. "OMG HE'S SMOKING! THATS NOT OUR DANTE!"

DUH! OF COURSE ITS NOT OUR DANTE! ITS QUITE OBVIOUS THAT THE STORYLINE ISN'T CANON! USE THAT THING CALLED A BRAIN!

I'm insulting you, aren't I? ^_^ Oh well. Cry me a fucking river why dontcha?

Besides, why hate a game that hasn't even BEEN PLAYED YET?

Good-bye now. I'm gonna go enjoy the rest of my Sunday and not give a damn if haters stalk my DA profile.
I'm tellin' it like it is. Get over it.

So basically you are okay with video game companies ruining their own brands just to make a quick buck. Because that is pretty much what you are telling everyone here. That's not how a company should properly do business not unless they want to stick around.

There is absolutely no legitimate reason you can come up with to justify supporting this unnecessary reboot and alienating the original fans.

In the end though,the reboot failed miserably as it sold the least amount of copies compared to the other titles in the Devil May Cry series and has a huge negative reception that unless Capcom wants to further go down the rabbit hole,they have no choice but to either kill off the series or make a real DMC5.

Either way the reboot will not getting a sequel and I could not be any happier with this news.

The two things that piss me off most about the complainers are 1) This is a prequel/reboot whatever. So yes, Dante's gonna be different. Most people change throughout their lives, and I'm pretty sure the haters aren't the same as they were when they were younger, say seven or eight. (Or maybe they are, and that's the probelem).
and 2) The most common complaint about the previous games was the lack of a coherant backstory. NJ tries to remedy that, and they get death threats. One whiner on a forum thread even threatened to kill himself if the DmC is released. Kinda reminds me of this: [link] "Do as I say, or bad things will happen"
At this point, I feel like saying "Come at me, bro" to the haters.

Lol actually, DmC is an alternate universe. Tameem established that like a year or so ago.

He threatened to kill himself over a fucking VIDEOGAME?! I don't want to live on this planet anymore...

The levels of what is and what is not canon in DMC have always been confusing, but yeah I don't mind I just want to play DmC already. Yup, I almost joined the thread, I wanted to tell them "I dare you". Neither do I. The past sucks, the future's gonna suck worse... I wish I could just go down a rabbit hole and stay there.

lol awesome. I supported DmC from the beginning, but Tameem said that Dante stopped smoking now, the new reason the fanboys are pissed is due to the way Vergil acts differently but they are so dense. He's obviously gonna use Dante and then try to take over Limbo...Duh

oh and i forgot to add something i didnt know 'Fag emo' was new way to refer to "Realistic" like come on, i love old Dante too, but if you were to see real life versions of them walking down the street who would you call Fag? i'm not insulting old Dante, but you gotta see my point.

I love you for this. But now it seems like they are arguing over how 'slow' the gameplay is. I still find how people call new Dante a 'fag emo'. I still don't get that but then again that poor excuse for words only shows that they can't say anything else that makes sense. LOL. Haters gunna hate of course~!
And I don't understand how people that claim they are/ have been a 'fan' ever since DMC came out and they bashed it the moment they saw the trailers for it without even knowing or waiting for new info on it. Even so, I'm in other fandoms too and I don't go apeshit crazy over it if it ends up changing. I'll give it a chance first THEN put my two-cent in. Hell, I'll even play it just to ease my doubts. I'm going to be MATURE about it, say I don't like this or that, and move on; it's as simple as that. I have better things to pull my hair out other than some game. So, I honestly don't care about the haters opinions anymore because I've heard pretty much the same thing over and over again plus they are just stressing themselves out over some damn game. lmfao

But yeah; I am netural about it... and the thought of a easy combo makes me happy because I suck at making combos with the DMC games sadly and if that doesn't make me a 'DIEHARDCORE GAMER LIKE SOME 'HARDCORE' GAMERS/FANS THINK HUEHUEHUE' then I don't even care. Lol

I agree, I'm just neutral on it until I get my hands on the game, which isn't too far. My gamer creed is 'Gameplay and storytelling is the two points worth looking for'. And the entire thing's got me interested especially the ever changing city dynamic. Just gotta wait a bit for Jan. 13th then.

See, to me, its just a videogame. The DmC haters think its the end of the world or something just because its a different Dante. In my way of thinking, we can only wait and see what this game is all about, you know?

I know, some people can be so overdramatic sometimes. For example, this one guy on YouTube hated my positive comment about the game so much that he made it his mission to personally troll/stark me. It was so annoying, yet kind of funny cuz his attempts to piss me off were so pathetic.

Trolls only piss me off when they tell me stuff like, "Go kill yourself" or something. It pisses me off when they say it to someone else that I know.

I try desperately to share my reasons to the haters and they don't even TRY to listen. It doesn't take a genius to know that its wrong to hate a game that hasn't even hit the shelves yet.

Well didn't anything like that. Instead he insulted my mom, repeatedly. It was like the only thing that he had in his arsenal. It was pretty weak. Eventually he gave up/I won...I think cuz it's been awhile since I've heard from him.

And I know what you mean. It's so hard to have a simple argument when someone just insults you for your own opinion and views. It's childish really.

I can't say I don't like the game because I haven't played it. I suppose I can say I don't like the idea of it because it's a reboot. This means instead of moving the story forward they are starting it all over again. A lot of other characters I like from the old game may not appear again ever. i don't have any issues with this dante's hair or face or voice. the game looks good but I'm still a fan of the old Dante.

A nice critic but i want to point out some points you did not mention.
For one the Game is NOT CANON it means that no matter what happens there, it isnt part of the Devil may cry story. That is one of my personal complains about thise game.
The complains about Dantes appereance are completely not understandable for someone who isnt a story fan of the franchise since otherwise his looks is, as you said, irrelevant if seen outside the franchise.
In itself it is an amazing game indeed, the game is fast, flashy, has a great atmosphere and has anything it needs to be an kick-ass action game. Just the fans are rioting since it has not to much to do with the Devil may cry series but is merely a (great) action game were they named the main character Dante and pressed the DMC name on it.

True that the game is non canon but if it was i think some people would complain even more that they are messing up the storyline of the original DMC.
