It's all over, fellow devil hunters. Let's pay our respects.
Come on guys, it's not over yet! Just because Donte must cri wasn't teased T the sony event today doesn't mean it's over yet.
New cawwadoddy had a ridiculous button prompt during a scene where the player character mourns a friend whom had fallen in battle, the action in question is called "pay respects"
Did anyone honestly think Devil May Cry wasn't long over?
Those games are fun but they don't do well. Look at shit like Bayo, Metal Gear Rising, W101. They're not consumer favorites.
DmC did well cause of the controversy.
As much as I want to see Dante again it's time to admit he's dead. He'll live in our hearts but he's gone forever.
we can only hope Metal gear rising 2 gets made, since the chances of Bayo 3 are pretty much nil
Actually DMC and Ninja Gaiden did do well. Depending on how you define well. For EA they would have pumped millions and millions of dollars into genre such as this and expected the game to sell no less than 5 million copies. However I doubt any of these games had a bloated budget.
It sucks that most cancer doesn't like the genre but it's a lie to say these games are unsuccessful. I remember seeing that NG2 sold over a million copies.
So just under 1 million copies. I'm sure it still made a profit though. I also suppose back then gaming budgets weren't nearly as bloated as they are now.
I think what he meant is that it felt like a lot of people that bought and championed the game were doing so to either deliberately be contrary to the upset fans or the series or just to see what all the fuss was about. It's not like it would have been a huge influence, but there certainly would have been a number of less copies sold, and realistically probably a lot less critical praise, if there hadn't been such a stink raised during its development
God of war was just shown behind closed doors
I am not giving up until tomorrow night.
FUCKING CLOSED DOORS. THIS IS WHAT THEY DID WITH KH3 LAST WEEK THOSE FUCKERS SAW WHAT NONE OF US WILL NEVER SEE
So this is really it, isn't it?
So you and I cleared Dante must Die mode, beat the bloody palace but this is the one we couldn't beat, huh?
Don't think about what could've been. Remember the times we had, okay? Between smacking down Mundus, defeating Vergil, teaching that little guy how to be, and some drunken romp I vaguely remember, we had some pretty good times together, ya know? Ahh man, we had some fun, jumping from pillar to pillar raining a hailfire of hot lead on those dummies, slapping them up in the air, jugglin' them like they were chainsaws and we were the most packed tent at the circus. Yeah.
Hey there, come on. No tears. There'll be other games. I've heard Raiden's got his act together these days, and that Bayonetta. Jeesh! Talk about a babe. They may not be me, but no one ever is.
Dry your face kid. Devils never cry.
I always remember the cuhrazee series you were and not the corporate shitstain that was the final nail in your coffin.
I'll never love again
If it was just a brand new DMC but Dante had the proper design and didn't act like Shadow the Hedgehog, it would've been praised by fans if not being a little too easy, but it would've been an enjoyable game.
Dante being a complete makeover fucking asshlole raised huge camps of people who hated him and people who were determined to feel special by liking him.
I'll always keep you in my heart and memory! I'll see you in heaven to continue our crazy party!
Rock on for me, and never forget that you'll always have a peace of my heart.
P.S: tell Vergil he'll never be forgotten, and we'll miss you both, ya crazy people!
what do you want on your pizza big man?
I'm gonna order a pizza in dante's honour
Dont worry...I..I will order pizza just for you...ok bro?
>Dry your face kid. Devils never cry
>beat DMD and Bloody Palace
Jokes on you, I'm straight up casual.
But that doesn't mean I won't miss you.
>yfw my eyes got slightly heavier typing this
>mfw DMC1 was the first game I played on PS2
>Devils never cry
Oh jesus christ I can't take this
If they truly make a 5th DMC game (a true sequel) I think they should let it be the last one they make since Capcom has gone to such shit. If not then I think they should just pass the torch to Nero (who I liked). Finish out Dante's story so they don't ruin him like it's a guarantee they will. Sadly though they will ruin Nero since modern Capcom sucks major dicks.
>mfw Bayo 3 will NEVER EVER get made
>mfw W101 is a dead corpse
>mfw there's been not even a whisper about MGR:2
>mfw Ninja Gaiden is casual Troy Baker core shit
>mfw there's not even the hopes of the reboot DmC coming back to redeem itself
>mfw Dante's inferno died right out the gate
>mfw they're still gonna make god of war games though
why is this world so fucking cruel
Fuck me, take me in your arms uncle Dante
>mfw there's not even the hopes of the reboot DmC coming back to redeem itself
There are actually.
If they do a complete turn on the plot to be more like original dante it still could be saved.
Maybe go to the point of DMC 3
I will dance on the grave of the greatest devil hunter in existence.For his honor and legend i will dance
>tfw in the end, we weren't satisfied
>tfw we weren't set free
>And surprise Bayo 2 did shit because Wii U isn't a console for cuhrazy games
What console is? The genre is slowly dying, anon. People just want to play fighting games or FPS these days, really. If you said the plot in Bayo 2 couldn't make a Bayo 3 possible I could agree with you, but in general Bayo2 didn't flop at all!
Who would've thought... 13 years later and I'm the one that survived. I guess the universe still needs me for something.
I'm sorry It Had To Be This Way.
A Soul Can't Be Cut, but my heart can be broken.
. I won't cast your sorrow to the heartless sea.
I'll remember you. Always.
Don't worry, I'm a big guy now. Have a snack.

>See game I want to try out that looks really cool but I'm just going off a title and the M rating
>It's Devil May Cry 1 PS2 greatest hits edition
>Get home, play
>It's the best PS2 game I've ever played, I'm horrible at it and just mash controls so I have to play on easy, something I've never had to do in vidya before

>It was this
>tfw the mindblowing announcement was a sequel to god of war
we'll all crowd surf his coffin into the grave
and bury him with Pizza, No olives
But anon, like DMC in relation to it's reboot, looking back in relation to the Lord of Shadows games, Lament of Innocence wasn't that bad. It just tried too hard to be a clone of God of War, which was itself already a clone of DMC.
It was still a decent Castlevania game.
I'm playing the modded pc port of DMC3 with on the fly style switching and lighting and gamepad fixes etc.
It makes me sad this and DMC4 are it. Bayonetta is cool, but it's not the same. God Hand is actually my favorite game, but it's not the same. Metal Gear Rising was an awesome experience, but it's still not the same.
I want DMC5.... Fuck.
Pasta or not, I feel like someone had to do it.
Don't worry uncle. We can still hang out together demon slaying and eating pizza from time to time. You'll get back on your feet one day
I'd rather have us wait until near thread's end for the max amount of replies
LET US NOT WALLOW IN OUR SORROW. SING IT WITH ME NOW.
MFW. Were forgetting something important.
The end credits are rolling.
We still have Demons to slay
Time for the final mission guys!
He wouldnt want us to go quietly into the night. Hed want us to have fun and go crazy.
This is the final Jackpot!
Adios, Dante, it was a fun ride
yeah, it is. It's pretty cool though it's not the horror/slasher it's said to be. It's more of a mystery thriller with some good dose of asian weirdness..
>That fitting theme to the thread
He has photoshopitis, you can tell because of the pixels.
it's the dying with a whimper that hurts me most.
If Dante were ever to die it'd be after taking down half of hell and surrounded by babes.
This... this is the kind of death I'd want Assassin's Creed to see. This isn't fair.
You should really play DMC first because the gameplay is only improved upon afterwards.
However, given your position, I would say go for it.
DMC3 is better than 4 only because it doesnt feature all the backtracking of 4.
Keep that in mind, DMC4 has a bitching everything regarding combat and atmosphere but the single player loses a lot because of the backtracking.
Even a devil may cry when he lost a loved one.
goodbye uncle Dante
Are there any other crazy games aside from DMC3/4 and MGR on PC?
Is Marlow Briggs actually not shit?
So, how many times have you faggots beaten DMC3?
I've beaten that fucking game over 20 times. Every now and then I get the itch to play a stage or two and it always ends up with me just going till the end because I fuck I LOVE YOU DANTE.
>RIP in peace
Who here actually played DMC2
I feel that's the real test of love for Dante. Sticking with him even when he started listening to emo music
>mfw I bought the new one off craigslist in the hopes Uncle Dante would return
I have it, and occasionally I look at it. I even opened it once. But I've heard so much shit, and it's two fucking discs
It's like, I could play this, or I could play one of the good ones
>Wait you forgot this
>I thought this meant a lot to you
>That's the only gift worth givijng, I want to entrust it to you, so I am. What do you do from here, is your clal
>Hey Dante, will we meet again?
Praise to my father
Blessed by the water
Black night, dark sky
The devils cry
>tfw DMC and Metroid are your favourites franchises
At least Metal Gear's still going
Back to pizza and cheap TV
>tfw the mellow parts of Shall never surrender and Devils Never cry
I don't think we've sung devils never cry
It's fine to mourn the lost for now, but Dante wouldn't want us to wallow in sadness forever.
We shall never surrender our cuhrayzee
WE SHALL NEVER SURRENDER OUR CUHRAZY
RIP DANTE, WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU
UNTIL NEXT TIME
Devil May Cry is my favorite game series of all time. It saddens me to see it go like this. I don't want this to be the last that we see of our crazy friend. I know that it's not likely, but there's a part of me that doesn't want to lose hope.
Godspeed Dante. I hope our paths cross again.
A life changing moment for Nero
Just another job for Dante who only got really into the whole ordeal thanks to family heirlooms being taken.
Berial mentioned that Dante killed a lot of his brethren. I'm sure there will be plenty of stories for Dante to tell us when he comes back
At least Metroid has all the signs of not being dead and having hope for a better future.
Also it went fucking EIGHT YEARS without a game between Super and Prime1/Fusion.
Its been 4 since Other M, I'm sure a new game will be out by 2016.
>Welcome to the club man. I know first hand about Capcom. Don't worry, pizza and ice cream is free here.
I don't know what I'd do if DMC or DD or anything good isn't announced tomorrow. My faith in gaming would just completely die.
>Only played DMC4 and a quarter of DMC3
>Shit at both, couldn't beat the bloody palace or DMD on 4, and I'm playing 3 on easy
>Still getting the feels trip because I already love this series so much
Fuck. I feel late to the party.
i've got you, friend.
>mfw trying to hold back tears.
I can't handle the fucking electric bastards. Half the time they don't even take damage and I have no idea how to efficiently take them down barring DRI, which I can't do on Nero and which also sometimes does zero damage. Are they occasionally invulnerable even while out of electric mode or something?
Also, I can't find a control configuration where I can constantly charge my gun with Nero to save my life. What's a decent control setup for that?
It's not over yet! It will never be over for us!
>Playing on Easy
>Hey Gene, what kind of club is it? Why did I do to get in?
in the anime he was a full blown alcoholic
the ending scene was always him with about half a bottle of whiskey and multiple shot glasses
he got up, walked away, and then disappeared...
I need to re-watch that
For a first boss, Cerberus is pretty tough. It's the first real 'get good, asshole'
Use the shotgun to blow his ice away, set Trickster for another dodge if you want, learn the big cues and don't get hit. Slash both his legs to bring him face down for big damage
Lament of Innocence came out before god of war
I'll remember you when I'm fighting demons, Dante...
But Blitz is one of the funnest enemies in the game to fight. Alright, first up from a default control layout swap Devil Trigger with Shoot. You can change other shit however you like but this is what I and most people tend to run. This'll let you charge your shots with a trigger finger whilst doing everything else normally. Additionally, Nero can kind of use his DT like Royal Guard since the DT explosion has a generous amount of iframes on it.
As Nero, you want to take down the electric shield with Charge Shots. Your only other option is DT explosion or summoned swords, unless one of your melee hits actually breaks the shield. As soon as the shield is down they're incredibly easy to kill as Nero, you can just lock them down with buster combos. Buster into jump buster into charge shot, or any variation of this. Whatever works, it's really simple once you get the hang of it.
Dante has far more options for breaking the shield, the fastest of which is Royal Guarding Stinger or Gilgamesh Aerials. From there do whatever you want to kill him, Dante has a silly amount of options for everything in general. Your safest options are DT Real Impacts though.
Call me a little bitch, but I'm actually tearing up right now. Don't go, Uncle Dante. I'm not ready for this. Just say those last words to me. "This party is getting crazy." That's all I need. ;-;
You're not casual unless you give up, anon. Put trickster on, get used to dashing through every attack. The rest of it's just chip damage, use your guns to break his armour, get in and stab his toes.
Dante's attitude really shines well the games in a gameplay aspect in a way. You could be nearly dying when you beat the boss and Dante will just shit-talk him like it wasn't a big deal like with Cerberus or just walk away in Agni and Rudra
WHEN YOU GOT NOTHING AND NOTHING'S GOT YOU
Did they kill the series officially or something?
Why the drama?
I don't think I've ever seen that top screenshot posted unedited. I'm starting to think that was how it was actually in the game
That's not the only thing. Look closely
Because Nocturne has a plethora of mythological beings ranging from gods to Lucifer himself.
Then we have a guy who shoots shit and eats pizza without giving a single fuck.
He's just so out of place because it's this awesome dude tearing ass but it works because he hunts demons.
What did I miss? People assume the series is dead because they didn't announce a new game today?
You have finally put my qualms to a rest. Farewell, Uncle Dante. You will be missed.
-moment of silence-
Darker than Black didn't have a season 2.
It's like this for every mystery Capcom reveal. I remember one year Capcom was doing some show and there was supposed to be an announcement from Itsuno and it ended up being (like nearly everything else at that presentation) a mobile game.
What I don't understand is that it's not like all of this internet hype is somehow invisible. Why doesn't Capcom want the free money?
DMC fan since day one here.
RIP Devil May Cry
Fuck the fanbase on this website though. I've never had more displeasure discussing one of my favorite franchises ever than on here.
I played DMC3 first on my pc, years ago.
I got a ps2 now, so I replayed it like 1 month ago. I seriously don't know how did I beat vergil as a kid, but now he kept beating my ass. I literally had to git gud to beat me, two hours of intense fun/pain, but at the end you feel acomplished, tears falling down my face like it was the first time... made me remember the old feeling of loving vidya
We'll make a better day, tomorrow
We Shall never surrender
we shall never surrender

>tfw no DS III
What if it's my fault? What if every franchise I get into to ends up dying?
it.....it's just the principle
we waited for it all this time
Dante died today
it was like watching an old man give it his all to fight through his illness till the next treatment, but the nurse came out and just shook her head
All the franchises you love will die soon /v/. Just imagine when Metal Gear is finally over. Fuck.
time to get ready for tomorrow
we gotta put on our hard asses
and pretend to hate each other for a while
but we'll all know
I know anon, I know. I'm >>274757789.
At the very least there's hope for Darksiders. Nordic has expressed a ton of interest in Darksiders III and the original studio, Vigil, has escaped Crytek and become its own studio called Gunfire. They have been in very early talks with Nordic to work on a sequel.
I don't think Joe Mad's been mentioned yet but I don't know if the franchise is quite dead.
Missed me, babes?
Well I cried like a bitch back then
>Snake....had a hard life
I mean it somewhat is over since we know what happens to good ol Big Boss
Everything about Vergil is perfect

He was feeling like having some crazy fun with Beowulf too
If anything, Dante and Vergil in their time will be remembered by the fighting game community if that means anything to you guys
>tfw we'll never see Dante and Lady make little devil babies
The last game in the main series came out nearly 7 years ago, anon. Every time Capcom is rumored to make a "major" announcement, especially with one of the main players in DMC's development, and it ends up not being DMC related, it feels further and further away.
It's like, if they had a game in the works, if they were even thinking about it, why wouldn't they say anything? A teaser or something.
And the simple answer is, there isn't one.
too bad Mahvel is also a dead series because Disney is too jewey to share profits with Capcom.
Also kinda sucks that Vergil is pretty much god tier while Dante barely sniffs top tier
>Everything after that scene
>Explaining Vamp and Liqud/Ocelot away with nanomachines
Goddamnit Kojima. I wish he was more willing to leave some things open ended, even if it was intended to be the last.
I'm afraid to have hope.
IM SORRY, ITS THE ONLY WAY I MAKE FRIENDS
we'll miss you uncle dante
No anon, the problem is we don't know if he's dead or sleeping.
But every hour and day and month and year that he doesn't stir, it looks more and more like he's not going to wake up.
All of Vergil's moves sound cool as fuck.
Hell, they never even do a name-calling even though all the moves sound balling
The entire music in that scene. MGS4 had balling duels too.
>Metal gear fight
>Good ol brawl
FORGET ABOUT ME
Funnily enough, that's how DMC3 worked with Dante's load of moves and Vergil's lack of moves even though they were powerful as hell and still made for some crazy combos
With Darksiders the blame lies with THQ's fuckups (not limited to, but especially the uDraw fiasco), and sadly the franchise and Vigil ended up paying for it when DSII didn't sell enough to get them out of the hole (which I don't think it ever would have unless it got CoD sales somehow).
I just hope something comes of Nordic trying to get the former team to work on a third game.
Goodnight, you crazy mother fucker.
I love how this makes absolutely no sense. Like why they would be pointing their weapons like that. Why his building explodes. Why Dante fires at nothing outside his shop. The only thing you need to know, is that it looks cool
God, working for the videogame industry has got to be the most fucking thankless, unfair job possible at times. Months or years of hard work and occasionally you'll just get shat on and told to work on some casualized shitfest garbage because a team of marketers decided that would sell better, or even worse, EA decided they don't want your company anymore and now you're fired.
Guess I know what I'm doing for Winter vacation, time to replay 1,3, and 4
Honestly, the fact that literally NO ONE at that THQ auction wanted to pick up the series or the team is just really fucking sad. While Darksiders wasn't perfect, I found it very enjoyable and I thought the team had a decent amount of talent (even if they were kind of mixing existing elements from other series, it usually worked in a nice way that didn't feel like a clusterfuck). But the simple fact that they and DSII failed to save THQ likely cost them anyone there willing to take a chance on them until the team and series went their separate ways and were picked up later by different companies.
I heard the rights to the series weren't even being sold for much, like only $250k, and still no one wanted to buy it there.
>tfw we will never see the rest of Pandora's forms
Yea, I know that mostly, but still it's always been like this. I've also heard that Nordic is actually very interested in letting the team continue working on Darksiders. I've that post too many times.
>the lead combat designer was a DMC fan
There was so much potential there.
i can see why you said that.
What the fuck?!
no more Uncle Dante?
I've been mad all day, and now I feel depressed.
We always have room for more on the ride
hey I have that art from 1:21
it's printed on the side of a box on a special edition arbook form jo chen
her art is amazing
so many great dmc drawnigs
Don't say that Uncle Dante, y-you will be back!
and here is a print
We gotta make the most out of life
Just because someone you love is gone, doesn't mean they still aren't there
Dante will live on in our hearts, maybe even one day we might see him again.
But for now, lets let the red devil rest, it was a crazy ride.
Love the DT's in 3 so much, especially with Vergil's. He's been with the Yamato for so damn long that the sheathe is part of his left arm
>yfw this fight will never come
I'm with this guy >>274748474.
Shit, it seems like Nintendo's the only console company that even cares about maintaining a stable high frame rate right now, and that's a cornerstone of the fucking genre.

>What is debug mode.
The PC version is fucking fabulous.
