It's now been three years since Not-Dante graced our screens with his greasy Tameem hair and godawful dialogue.
Post your most favourite memorable moments from this Shakespearean masterpiece here.
some anon gifted me this game.
I'll post some memorable moments
and the last one.
I uninstalled the game as soon as I got the cards and installed DMC4 again.
>Vorgilsauraus was 3 years ago
>FUCK YOU was 4 years ago
I REFUSE TO BELIEVE IT
>tfw I lost all my DmC images from before the games release
this. DmC definitive is better than dmc2, but it doesn't touch 1,3, or 4. the original was fucking retarded in every way except aesthetic design, which was ruined by 30fps.
man, i remember being on /v/ when that game came out. shit was hilarious. tameem as dr evil saying the give made "one million dollars!" and shit. good times. lost all my pictures when i upgraded few months ago.
post your donte shit, please
Can't believe it's been fucking 3 years since that fiasco. Feels like it was just last year. How did time go by so fast anon?
It'll only go by quicker as time goes on. The older you are the faster time seems to pass.
Jesus Christ I remember all the threads like it was yesterday.
3 years...3 fucking years just gone.
I don't have any precious memories of DmC, OP, so I'll instead be posting my favorite anti-DmC rant/parody vids here:
I still remember the utter hilarity with /v/ when Capcom thought it was cool to release these
I miss back when /v/ could at least try and have some fun without memer children spouting "autism!".
>not posting the best one
MGR could never compete with the Shakespearean likes of
>Little wet chunks!
Also DmC was 30fps with enemies that only take damage from certain weapons.
>Give it to a non-edgy director
>Get decent writers
>Dante's a younger teen, suffered from torture and other darker bullshit from his captors
>Some other villain
>Dante turns from edgy to cool uncle Dante personality
>Keep old gameplay
This is literally all they had to do. All of it. That's how you made something new, took people on a ride, and turned it on its head making something different but familiar.
Fucking incompetent Capcom, holy shit.
At first I thought you were going to play as a puppet being made by Mundus, based on the early trailers; I thought the bit where he was getting a headache and more white hair was Mundus getting closer to finishing him. Then, at the end the twist would be revealed and the game ends with Mundus returning to earth with his new weapon, Fake Dante.
and it's still a piece of shit
even with the HD port
Oops. Forgot a few more:
Oh man, a game released on 4 consoles and PC outsells a game released on 1 console, yeah real hot shit.
Happy anniversary, Donte!
Yes. It's almost not worth it though because one game isn't as good as the other and one game isn't worth playing at all.
Like how the ZOE HD collection was only good for playing 2nd runner.
I got the definitive edition for cheap and its an alright game mechanically. I stopped playing it halfway through because I got sick of the story, characters and almost everything other than the combat.
Even the Classic Dante outfit doesn't help because sometimes he's wearing it in cutscenes unless it's a scene where Dante references anything from his original outfit so he's wearing it for some reason
>That was three years ago.
>Been almost five years since the initial announcement
Time sure does fly.
Hey now, the first ZOE wasn't bad, it just was more of a tech demo game than anything truly amazing.
But this isn't the time or the thread for that.
I liked the baby tear eating demons
In my case this game was how Dark souls II was to Dark souls. I kind of enjoyed it but i came back to the previous game the moment i finished it.
DmC had horrible gameplay compared to DMC 3/4, infinite air juggles easy to do and a FUCKING HUUUGE JC WINDOW that bugged out more than being stylish. Man, that game was shit but got some fun out of it.
MGR = mediocre game. The combat is extremely casual compared to DmC and DmC is casual as fuck but if it came down to what takes more skill, obviously DmC takes the cake.
>But muh story
>But muh parry
>Went into Vocation Training around the same time as the game was being talked about
>Get a roomate who defends the game and uses the "DMC fans are butthurt they changed the Hair" kind of arguements.
>Game comes out and he buys it
>We both make fun of the writing
>Vergin's Downfall ends up being even worse
>Forever becomes a Joke game to us
MGR just had that sense of speed, energy and self-aware humor (most notably Armstrong) in a new context, and were enough to make up for its short length and less variety between combos.
DmC on its own isn't bad either, and had some neat new mechanics and honest ideas, but through the lenses of DMC it advertises itself as, the shitty changes it brought along (dull Dante, EZ bosses, combos/style points that pull themselves off, color-coded enemies, lame dialogue, etc) atop the director literally self-inserting himself just sealed more fears about the "new" unnecessary direction than hopes.
>DmC is casual as fuck but if it came down to what takes more skill, obviously DmC takes the cake.
For the love of god, someone post the webm of the first boss in DmC beaten in 3 shots with that OP as fuck gun or whatever.
Define "control response"
Because Donte doesn't respond to controls well, you can't cancel nearly as many animations. If that's what you mean you are wrong.
The control setup itself is stupid, R1 and L1 both dodge because you have to constantly hold R2 or L2. Great idea idiots.
My favorite part is that the toggle idea was hailed as an innovation when it's just what they did for Heavenly Sword, and it was lame there too.
the whole game man
i was never let down for one second during this game, from beginning to end it just got more and more insane and terrible and for one playthrough is enjoyable as a trainwreck alone. Between blatantly telling fans of the first 4 games to go fuck themselves or executing unborn demon fetuses with an assault rifle for no apparent reason and down right childish writing non stop made one hell of an experience
strip it of the DMC drama and its a forgettable 6/10 game with maybe one or two unique levels worth playing
>executing unborn demon fetuses with an assault rifle for no apparent reason
>Vergil just pops the baby we beat the crap out of less than five minutes ago
>lets the whore of a wife despair over what just happened before shooting her too
>Dante is genuinely unnerved
>fight with Mundus
>"sorry about the kid, he made a real wet squishing noise when he got blown into little chunks" or something along those lines
I get Donte was supposed to anger Mundus but goddamn, there's not even a second of hesitation or any sort of implication that Donte remotely gave a fuck past the initial piss-off at Vergil.
>3 years since Capcom thought this was a good idea
>3 years since Capcom paid videogame "journalists" to shill this game
>3 years since Capcom gave fans the finger to reach a wider audience
>3 years since Capcom spent millions and man hours "fixing" the game
...and 3 years later Capcom is still suffering for this shitfest. It's like pottery.
>Outsold by Heavy Fire: Afghanistan
Why the hell did you not play this, /v/? It was coffee break GOTY.
Shame the sequel never got a physical release on PC.
I can understand DmC being in "avoid" but fuck at least put the definitive edition in optional and put 2 is avoid. The definitive edition is so much better and it is totally worth playing.
is it possible yet to play DmC Mexico Edition? that's the only way I'm going to touch that garbage
>Anyone who played Devil May Cry 4 must surely of seen how desperately the IP needed an injection of new ideas and modernisation - which exactly what the skilful Ninja Theory achieved.
What in the fuck am I reading? Wasn't DMC4 considered one of the best of its genre alongside DMC3 for years, and to a degree still are? Nothing DmC 'modernized' would make it inherently better, if anything the game got dumbed down significantly and pretended like its Angel/Demon weapon system actually made it more advanced.
>that whole drama is already 3 years ago
16 when it happend
why does time go by so fast /v/
>DmC:DE worse than DMC2
This right here is how you can tell the difference between legit fan, and bandwagon faggot. In this case bandwagon faggot. DmC:DE fixed a lot with turbo and hardcore mode and is actually playable now, not on the level of DMC3 or 4 but a decent enough action game. DMC2 is unplayable trash that should be, and is, avoided. A game so bad even Capcom refuses to acknowledge it.
Stop being a faget anon.
wait till you're 23, then you'll start getting depressed
if you haven't lost your virginity yet, stop wasting your time, buy a whore, wear a condom, then after that buy an ona hole and never look back
>R1 and L1 both dodge because you have to constantly hold R2 or L2. Great idea idiots.
there are people who do not use their middle fingers for l2 and r2
that is hilarious when they said people only use their pointer finger on the triggers
>it's been 3 years
>I still can't tell if Tameen seriously thought this was his definition of cool or if it was a huge practical joke on Capcom
Is DMC 5 ever going to happen?
I disagree, I think he's ok
unless you're talking visually?
If this game did anything positive, it was to bring a major turning point in the way gaming journalists interacted with readers. Writers know they can't openly shit on their readers for not going along with whatever contrived narrative they came up with. Watching the backlash while the game bombed was great.
It was nice seeing people buy the HD collection but anons buying 3-4 copies for themselves made it sound like they had no faith in the collection surpassing DmC in sales.
Same deal with people seeing The Force Awakens multiple times.

>a bunch of feminist and progressive news sites/reviewers praised the game and its writing
>despite the fact Donte is literally sexist
>despite the fact there is a sniper rifle abortion scene included entirely for shock value
>despite the fact NT promised Kat would be a strong, competant female character and she ended up getting damselled, being in the story just to act as a love interest, and was so useless she spent the last boss fight hiding a bin
>despite the fact NT literally made fucking gay jokes about Dante at a conference based on his hair
>despite the fact the vast majority of the women in the game are strippers/random whores just there to look sexy and potentially be endangered as part of the teenage boy power fantasy that is Donte's existence
I'm honestly still disgusted by this, I mean I'm legitimately fucking appalled at how this game got such a blatant pass while fairly innocuous shit like Senran Kagura gets eviscerated by the same people who praise DmC's story.
I lost so much respect for so many people over it.
it was part of some fake spoilers.
still better than the real game because the fakes went off the wall in terms of insanity

3 years? What the fuck?
I remember those threads like it was last month or something
How long have I been here?
>tfw Nero's Devil Bringer makes guitar noises
I wouldn't say 'better'.
I'd say 'different'.
A lot of anon usually say "sex is over-rated", but that's generally an excuse they drum up because they have a small cock or are shit at sex.
I prefer the real puss, you know, normal human affection. It's better than a loner's silicon sock.
>imagining JYB in his motion capture suit doing this
taste betrayal once, you'll never want to risk it again
At least the multi-level cities and concept art for that Total Recall reboot were pretty cool-looking... even if some of the ideas broke all logic.
>build an elevator that goes straight through the EARTH'S FUCKING CORE
Ah, the memories.
>DmC was so bad that Tameem shaved his head and changed his name
Choosing women is basically a lucky dip; you either get the Reeces Peanut Butter Cup, or a generic store brand 'sweet' that tastes nothing like it looks,
The trick is to peak, feel around.
>a bunch of feminists praised the game and its writing
Not even feminists are okay with DmC's treatment of its female characters.
>sometimes we're not and that makes it all worthwhile.
for that, I have my family, I can trust my parents and my sister, and no matter how many people are into incest in here, I just can't even entertain the idea
actually I had the coolest girl in the world once, and she wasn't ugly, but I wasn't attracted to her
I'll just keep making money, then get a trophy wife to get children
I hope I get at least one son, so I can watch Batman TAS, Superman TAS, JL, JLU, Batman Beyond, Yu Yu Hakusho and Beast Wars with him, and play lots of vidya
I thought he got cancer from making such a huge turd
>mfw I fucked my friend incredibly hard tonight
I can still see the scratches on my back. Woo-wee.
I really liked DMC and have more playtime on it than 3 and 4 combined...
it's a small clip that plays at the end of the credits
If I remember correctly, the dude on the skateboard is Donte's VA
I'm chewing this bait but there's absolutely no flavour to it. Try harder.
>Wasn't DMC4 considered one of the best of its genre alongside DMC3 for years
Not really. While its initial release wasn't exactly negative, it got a lot of bad press for the whole backtracking thing, in addition to Nero being kind of a pointless character. In later years its reputation has slightly improved, but mainly because it's only being discussed anymore by hardcore fans who focus mainly on the combat and not the awkward structure of the game around it.
The people who say that kind of thing are the plebs who play through the story once and never touch a game again.
When they say new ideas and modernisation they simply mean there were different characters and they swore a lot.
>mfw I finally get good at DmC
>pretending to be retarded
Refer back to my post where I said that "DmC is mediocre as shit"
DMC2 is an exponentially worse game than DmC in nearly every way. That is just a straight up fact. You're an idiot.
DMC2 added to the series ideas and mechanics still used in 3 and 4.
DmC took away things and dumbed everything down. To deny this shows you are either tameem himself or a huge ninja theory shill.
It's still a better game.
>defending hold down shoot to win: the game
You are incredibly desperate to hate circlejerk about how shit DmC is. There's already more than enough to hate about DmC. Trying to convince yourself that DMC2 of all things is somehow better is just retarded. DMC2 is one of the least competent high profile action games of all time. DmC is competent at the very least.
No one is denying anything plebeian. It may have added mechanics but it was ground work only and very poorly implemented, scaffolding at best which resulted in a poorly controlled, un-interesting experience to the point where it very nearly killed the DMC franchise itself. DmC was also shit, but it didn't do nearly half the damage DMC2 did and with the release of DmC:DE it became more than functional, it actually became a game.
So, in your words, to deny this shows you are either a bandwagon faget, or a huge Capcom shill.
DmC is one of the funnier games ive played, its just the game didnt intentionally mean for me to laugh at the parts i did. The bigger line had me laughing the hardest just cause it was almost cool but they fuck it up immediately.
>The control setup itself is stupid, R1 and L1 both dodge because you have to constantly hold R2 or L2. Great idea idiots.
The control scheme is genuinely stupid. It's funny, b/c it's a prime example of someone trying to fix what wasn't broken in the first place. It's so terrible and unintuitive. Why would there need to be a separate button for launchers when the original series had a much better solution by mapping launchers to R1+back+Attack? Where would there need to be two separate dodge buttons, aside from their retarded decision to force the player to hold the triggers for Angel/Demon weapons? Why do I need to double input forward, then the attack button if I want to do a Stinger? That shit just overcomplicates things. It's funny how DMC series has a remarkably simply control scheme for being one of the most complex action games ever.
Well I guess you could argue that it gets pretty complicated for what it demands out of you for higher level play and then there's the fact that it's highly recommended that you switch the controls around for certain characters or Styles. Even still, R1+fwd+/_\ to do a Stinger really isn't that complicated, and in fact, is probably easier to input than what they had in DmC.
God that game was terrible.
>"We never set out to beat Bayonetta in combat."
Uhh, a Devil May Cry game should absolutely try to beat out Bayonetta in combat. They're both in the same genre and are basically in competition with one another. Not to mention the older ones already kinda did beat out Bayonetta in my opinion, even if that were one of my favorite games ever anyway.
>It's already been 3 years
God damn, I almost miss the FUCK YOU fun posting. What a glorious bombshell that game was on this board.
Right? That did already kinda remind me of Bayonetta.
Although really, an action game with multiple types of dodges sounds like it could be awesome. DmC did it entirely the wrong way though and I guess DMC3 and 4 both did that already and much better anyhow.
If a DMC5 is coming out I hope it decides to be more like DMC1 then 3 and 4.
Not that I hate DMC3 and 4 but they have yet to capture the same feeling that DMC1 managed to.
Visually, he really does look like a mix between Nero and Donte. Although personality-wise, he seems to be more fun-loving like Kamiya's typical protagonists. More like Viewtiful Joe than anything.
>Which is funny since Donte is a lot like Nero without the good parts.
Right? Funny, they already did Donte before DmC did and better with Nero. Basically everything about Donte, either DMC3 Dante or Nero did first.
Part of me feels that DmC broke /v/'s rationality circuit. So many threads of people actively discussing and listing complaints and people constantly saying UR JUST MAD ABOUT THE HAIR
>tameem as dr evil saying the give made "one million dollars!" and shit.
>take a break from DMC to make Dragon's Dogma
>find out Jewnafune gave away your series to a bunch of slimy limeys
>have to babysit them so they don't completely tank the IP to the point of it getting shelved
I don't understand the criticism of the game at all.
He is dante, it's an origin story.
The game is great. There's not a lot to complain about.
They probably hyped up all the shit talk to give the game a chance. The devs must have known that they were wasting a couple of years of their lives on garbage, but a paycheck is a paycheck.
>The game is great. Theres not a lot to complain about
But really, the gameplay is boring as shit. The originals were leagues better.
>There is not a lot to complain about
You mean, aside from the gameplay, the "Shakespearean" story, the bugs, the overall treatment from the devs, the DLC, the bought reviews, there's almost nothing?
Would have been easier to just list what wasn't wrong with it...which can be summed up with the environment design.
I think someone wrote an entire fake script that was something along those lines. Donte was a bio-weapon developed by some company. At the end you'd save pre-DMC3 Dante, then team up to fight some super strong demon. At the end, Donte gets a makeover and becomes DMC2 Dante.
Since he found it in the possession of The Order of the Sword in 4, after Nero lost it.
Can you give a time for when Dan slips and mentions it?
I think DmC was a decent game, they tried to copy the style of the original games, and despite marketing the game for the hip/edgy crowd it actually turned out to be something you can laugh at.
The artstyle of the stages was pretty nice though.
How is the Devil May Cry forum doing now? Are its DmC fans still as rampant as ever?
>>rule 63 Dante
I'm 24 with a cute girlfriend and I'm happy.
I had fun with whores from 19-22 but I decided to grow up. Now instead of snorting cocaine off of strippers tits and ass I mostly shitpost and play vidya.
Life is pretty boring but at least I'm living healthy.
Why does your life suck so much? Are you fat?
Oh yeah I love exploits too homie.
>Johnny loses his shit while Reuben tries to do damage control over Dan ruining the surprise
Does this also change every other problem related to the gameplay, story, and characters?
One of these days I'm actually gonna play my copy of DMC HD and probably actually buy DMC4SE.
I have a lot of series that are just foreverially backlogged but this is one I feel really bad about.
You need to get your crazy levels up to the acceptable minimum.
>go to the hot new chan
>first page has a link to pedo board
Where did the time go.
>muh hair color
Stop. Even if he looked almost identical to old dante it would still be a shit game, it would still have shit gameplay, it would still have a shit story that inexplicably stole They Live, and it would still have shit characters.
It's an awful DMC.
It's an okay game, about as good Heavenly Sword what is what anyone realistic expected. If it was called anything else it would be under the radar and forgotten about, like Heavenly Sword.
I don't think it's even possible for me to get this good at any games. I've gotten SSS a total of 3 times before in every DMC game I've played and that was mostly by chance or there were a lot of enemies in the room to hit.
>has better Dante design
>has better music
>has better enemy design outside of DEMON FUCKING HELICOPTERS
>has better waifu
>actually introduced things to the series
DMC2 is unfortunately mediocre. It's however, not insulting. DmC is insulting.
>has better Dante design
>has better enemy design outside of DEMON FUCKING HELICOPTERS
I hope you are only talking about how they look.
>.webm of those white wolves jumping around
Face it guys. DMC 5 is not happening.
>killed off the most iconic character in the first game
>already did origin stories
>protag already killed the baddy that wants to destroy the whole world, making him the strongest character in the story
The only thing that would be interesting is if
Spardabecame the boss in the next game.
Also retcon or pull some bullshit to revive Vergil.
DMC5 is most definitely happening, just because you can't come up with somewhere to take the story doesn't mean there isn't an avenue they could go down, plus who the fuck plays DMC for the story anyway?
Oh fuck, I have to rewatch Cromartie High School now.
>Reuben states that capcom wasn't thrilled about DmC's performance
>Brought back for dmc4:SE
>was worried that it would under perform due to being old
>ended up doing a lot better than expected
>dmc5 potentially on the horizon
Fucking great. These guys seem pretty chill as well. It's nice to see power ranger actors do something else after their time on the show, cause usually it ends up being career killers for non-union actors.
someone post the edit
>>killed off the most iconic character in the first game
You mean Dante? They really killed off Dante? Seriously?
>>powerful new bad guy comes along
It really annoys me that they haven't done this yet.
>play DMC 3 and 4
>think I'm some sort of SSS_darkslayer_SSS player
>play DMC 1 just for the laughs
>get my shit kicked by the first boss
It's not really broken as a game though and under a 5 implies that. The last 2 boss battles pissed me off really hard especially the Vergil battle.
The combat is still put together and fun. I really can't see this game being lower then a 5.
5 is a dead average, DmC is below average because it is worse than every other game in the series but one and actively antagonizes long time fans. It's combat would be forgettable and servicable at best in a new action IP, but in DMC it's insultingly shitty.
this game ain't no better than darksiders, god of war or other western hack n slash games, I think it would be forgotten like enslaved and the other NT game.
Less. The only reason it got exposed is because it's shit and hated for its name. Any marketing is better than no marketing, see how contrarians flocked to defend it.
Don't listen to this idiot >>324107674, instead just take a look at literally every other Ninja Theory game and how it faded into shit and obscurity with no sales.
Well you're still here so why not :^)
I think DmC is still pretty good by western action game standards.It's only bad by the standards of the rest of the series. Which is why it's so (deservedly) hated by most hardcore fans of the series.
You do not have to do anything like in that webm to get SSS.
All you have to do is switch your moves around and not get hit.
A rotation can lead to this. It's not stylish but the game does not demand those crazy inputs to get high grades.
Is there any other video game male as handsome and sexy as Dante?
DmC:DE is a modded PC version only ported to next gen consoles. It's even in the trailer "community's favorite modifications!". So things like 60fps and removed color coded enemies. Those were all mods.
