Hello Ninja Theory… I see you’ve upgraded the gameplay ne? I accept it, it looks much better yes… but I’m still not impressed. His character design still sucks! And what? You think loading on the swearing makes hardcore characters or a really cool game? I’m not saying Dante NEVER swore but come on… even the other dude seemed like he was TOTALLY putting it on! It’s almost as bad as the pizza scene in the last video!!! (that was obviously only to bring in more perverted fangirls that already think that “that guy is so hot!” what’s wrong with them? *Ugh… how repulsive* >.>) Oh~ and the whole “masked message” let’s play a game thing? Seen it too many times before: SAW, Liar Game… I just hope you have something original hidden behind that “Demon Takover” storyline ¬.¬” Also… did I see Dante get his white hair in that? Keke~ had to give in to the fans a little ne? XDDD
By the way, who’s DMC-Dante’s voice actor? O.O
That voice is very familiar but… different? O.o
Seriously I don’t care what people say about “the haters” (aka, people who don’t like THIS Dante) But that’s my point anyway! He’s NOT the original Dante, if he’s even Dante at all he’s a different one that doesn’t fit in with the original Devil May Cry games (which is why this is called DMC not Devil May Cry 5). So… I have the right to dislike him if I want (yeah I don’t HATE him, I have no reason to yet). Plenty of people HATE Raiden, even though his character design has gotten much better and his story is actually believable!!! I think they’re still bitter that Solid Snake wasn’t the main playable character in MGS2. I didn’t like the idea of not playing as Solid Snake either!!! Raiden looked like a flower boy (please note. I do not use this term to mean a guy who is good looking… I use it to refer to a feminine guy. XDDD) and yeah I didn’t think Raiden would be a good character when I saw him. But after playing I became a total Raiden fan! *he’s not better than Solid Snake, but he’s a damn good cybernetic samurai ninja mercenary!!!* XDDDDD So I’m not saying I won’t give this dude a chance. Those people saying: “change is always a good thing” it’s not ALWAYS a good thing. Positive progression yes, change no. Things CAN change for the worse. Ever heard of the government? If change was ALWAYS good, wouldn’t we simply pick something different each time, rather than the one we think will actually keep the country at it’s best? #MakeItRight people! XDDD
I want to address 2 more isssues, of incorrect comments I’ve seen VERY often:
“This new guy is schizophrenic so he thinks he’s Dante.” - people… you REALLY need to look up that word!!! A schizophrenic is not someone with multiple personality and/or an identity disorder. That is a completely separate issue. I can’t believe even TV gets this wrong!!! ¬.¬
“This Dante is such an emo.” - These days emo has been used as an insulting term to call anyone who likes rock music or anyone even slightly depressed. Emo music is basically more emotional within the lyrics/performance and does not just focus on negative emotions and aspects of life such as depression, self harming and suicidal thoughts. But even if it was… does that REALLY describe the guy in DMC? Think about it. *puh~leaze* >.> Most people just use the word ‘emo’ as an insult to people… the same way they’ll say: ‘oh you’re so gay’ when they don’t mean homosexual. Man he doesn’t even dress “stereotypically emo”!!! HE dresses like a modified version of Dante!!!
The last thing I want to address, is The Dante of DMC’s personality. The reason I’m currently disassociating him from Dante is: If Dante is a rebel (which we all know he is XD) and this one is supposed to be an even more “rebellious teen” type… why isn’t he disputing that guy’s claim? That random guy (the masked person narrating most of the new trailer) is claiming he’s THEIR (the humans’ I guess…?) weapon? Dante becomes a FREELANCE demon hunter when he’s older… why would he let someone go around claiming he’s theirs when he’s more rebellious and hormone driven? Even if he’s helping them, he’d have his own reasons and wouldn’t be claimed like a prize or owned like a puppy! He works only for his cause, or sometimes due to his actual humankindness! (LOL! HUMANS + KIND = oxymoronic phrase XDDDD but I digress) Dante is an ANTIHERO.
A last message from me (since LOTS of people think I pretty much hate everything… *sigh*): Liking EVERYTHING just shows you have no standards and no mind of your own. And just because you dislike or have no opinion on something, it doesn’t mean you hate it to the core. And being passionate about what you like or believe in, does NOT mean you are obsessive and/or closed minded. Life is about the good and the bad, so just accept that there has to be a balance of both!! We all have opinions……. if we have brains! >D
