Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I dislike turn-based games slightly because of the way you can take a turn and wait a year then take another turn. Which leads me too say real-time fighting is the greatest way to game

I'd at least like to hear more about it. Neither the Wii U or rumors of the next Xbox sound that appealing anyway, really.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

Games don't need a story to be good. Game companies should stop trying to make their games focus on a single one-track plotline and instead should focus on allowing the player to write his or her own story within the game.

Even if you do that, you're still getting a story though.

Depends on the game, really. If it is a strategy game, then yes, it will take a long time, however if it is turn based like, let's say, Pokemon or Legend of Dragoon, it won't take terribly long for it to be your turn again.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I don't mind turn based battles, hell, that's how I got started and into RPG's

Speaking of RPG's, am I the only one who enjoyed The Last Remnant?

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I don't want devs to have a brand new shiny engine and the game rebuilt from the ground up every sequel. I would love if Eidos just made a sequel to Human Revolution with the exact same engine, technology and graphics and just focused on a new story and polishing out the gameplay flaws from the previous game and expanding on its strengths. I don't even have a problem with the CoD sequels they keep pushing out (though I wouldn't pay €70 for them).

I did try the PC demo, but could not for the life of me wrap my head around the system.

I like all kinds of JRPGs, turn-based, whatever. Don't care. They always seem more interesting than WRPGs anyway, even if their plots are out there. I'd rather play an out there plot than a semi-realistic one.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I prefer the retro, lazy-boy of consoles: The SNES, GameCube etc, over interactive ones like the Wii. The experience doesn't get much better than being able to play cocooned in the duvet.

I hope this isn't sarcastic because I just loved the Zelda Oracle games and The Minish Cap.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I think super mario sunshine is better than super mario 64
I thought Phantom Hourglass was a pretty good ds game
I didn't really care that Call of duty modern warfare 3 came out
Brawl is better than melee
Super mario galaxy SUCKS
Paper mario is not that good
runescape is AWESOME
the Wind Waker is the best zelda game
List of game series I don't like or don't care for:
gears of war
god of war
half life
assassins creed.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

I think Devil May Cry fanbase still exaggerates over the new Dante, who's already done a single gesture in the teaser trailer that was more genuinely cool than any and everything the original Dante did (that is, putting out a lit cigarette on an enemy's head while it's in a necklock). That, and Dante's DMC3 design is ❤❤❤❤❤❤ry incarnate. I also enjoyed Asura's Wrath more than DMC4.

Seriously, everything about NewDante that is different from DanteClassic is instantly remedied by the explanation "He is a teenager".

Black hair? Maybe it ain't gone white yet. Maybe he's dying it.
Smokes? Thought it made him look cool.
More generically trendy sense of style? He hasn't developed his own taste yet.
Stretchy modular weapon? He just used multiple weapons before, he'll probably unlock new modes the same way. Plus it integrates the best part of 4 by giving him Nero's grapple move. And it may look similar to God of War but everything about it looks to handle differently.
Bullet-time instead of classic Devil Trigger? A) He doesn't learn Devil Trigger until later (and he explicitly does not yet know of his demonic ancestry). B) This is actually something that makes it stand out from every other action game; God of War and Darksiders both copied Devil May Cry's limited power boost mode and now it just feels cliche for an action game.
Roaring "MY NAME IS DANTE" like a douchebag? A) He was always a douchebag. B) He has always been anti-authority and probably just has yet to learn that being flippant pisses them off more.

Every change I've seen gives him room to grow into the character we know and tolerate (seriously, if he says party one goddamn time I will punch my television; I know he didn't say it in 4 but he still needs to shut up about it for a lifetime after 3).

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

Yes but the reason i played the first game at all was because Dante exists in that design. I prefer older White haired, asskicking, hot Dante to whiny, teenage angst Dante.

Re: Your "Controversial" Gaming Opinion

On the topic of Dante, I find every design except for the current iteration to be extremely bland and uninspired. Until recently, I assumed Devil May Cry was a JRPG series, based on the characters' appearances.

He wasn't angsty in 3, just cocky as hell. Hell, he showed more emotion in one than he did 3. I dunno, I just don't think the character needs more back story. Unless they want to put in some more history with Vergil. Four was hinting at vergil, but never actually mentioned him. More back story for the twin please.

He literally can't because he was not any of those three things you quoted.

Maybe teenage, since 18 and 19 TECHNICALLY count but definitely not whiny or angsty.

Nero was the new Vergil. Looked like Dante, part demon, blue coat, and he LITERALLY took up his sword.
