I had a blast with the game, there was one very surprisingly emotional scene that pretty much sold me on Dante's character - the performances were great. I wasn't expecting the game to be as good in the story department.
This is the part that scares me. I'm not insinuating that you're wrong, but rather that I feel like this is getting blown up BECAUSE it is Devil May Cry. This new one, and the old ones I presume, seems to handle its story with a great sense of irony, not taking itself too seriously. But Bayonetta did essentially the same thing, mocking and embracing sexualized anime-esque tropes.
So, I guess my question is: What exactly makes the new DMC more significant than just being a satire? How does it push itself further than its initial premise?
