@RubberduckzillA Nah DMC4 is definitely before DMC2 :) That is an interesting line, I can't recall it. I'll have to pay attention to it when I play it again with the Special Edition

DMC 2 isn't bad but its nothing compared to the others. There is literally no skill to it and the story doesn't add anything. That's why they went back to the DMC1 formula for DMC3. However the game still counts as part of the lore as the order of the games are DMC3, DMC1, Anime, DMC4 then DMC2. Would really like a game after 2 haha

Good read but in my opinion you are missing the point of made the originals great.

I don't agree with the reboot BUT I recently picked up the definitive edition and am really enjoying it.

Combat in the new one is great but comparing it to the original isn't what is wrong with it.

My issue with it compared to the original is simply, it didn't need it. You said so yourself things looked good for the series back in 2008. I have been playing them all, watching the anime and reading the manga and I can say one thing that fans can see so appealing to the original than the reboot.

Charm.

The originals have so much charm. The story, characters, lore, places etc. So much of it so interesting when you look into it. Dante's naturally progression. His constant losing streak with gambling. Pizza and Strawberry Sundaes addiction, his lousy luck with women. Dante was badass but so freaking fun looking into his life.

So many questions aswell unanswered.

*spoilers of the orignals*
What is up with Nero being like Vergil? Sparda's history and still don't know how he died or if he really is dead. Did Dante escape Hell in DMC2? Trish having Spardas guns! Plus Mundus isn't dead lol
*spoilers over*

Everything about the originals was its own. Its history, style, cast (how were they boring? please...) it all adds to it.

So far playing DmC I have no fault with it other than its so... modern :/
That's not bad but the original DMC wasn't even on our Earth. The originals had its own modern/Victorian style going. Plus lets add more curse words, sex references and everything to the mix to the reboot. Its just so unnecessary for a franchise like Devil May Cry.

I don't hate the reboot but my God man, you can't say it was needed for your reasons lol

Each to their own though.

I am enjoying the reboot still and am really looking forward to DMC 4: Special Edition with a new Vergil Campaign in the original universe which will probably explain the origins of Nero

I got it day one on PS3 and I'm loving it so far. Its has the charm of Twin Peaks that I've been waiting for. I've only played like an hour a day as I've been busy but the story has me hooked and the overhaul game I like. Agent York is just awesome :D

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Jetstream Sam review

Scarletbeyond

@null Its fits into the mG history. It mentions what happens after MGS4 and recalls events, characters through codec calls. Personally i liked it for what it was. It was really fun and I thought Raiden was a better character in a whole. The stories not wow, but its not bad by any means. Kojima always wanted other people to continue the story after the events of MGS4 and let people do their own thing. This game doesn't destory the franchise. Its a hack & slash but as story and generally good game making goes its Metal Gear quality.

I liked it for what it was. The enviroment say its recycled but truthfully they ain't. They use teh same props etc but teh Sewers are different layouts, the building in Denver has a differnent layout. The only generally recycled areas are the Japanese villiage area bit onwards.
