Re: This is why New Dante sucks

The game looks decent, but i hate when people blatantly defend New Dante. What if Square Enix included Cloud Strife but instead of his normal look, he had a leopard vest and a black pony-tail. Some of you would be pretty mad, yes? 

 

I admit, most people who complain about Dante are morons, but the people who accept whatever they are given aren't any better. Now I'll hide before I get attacked with angry replies...Smiley Sad

Thats not the same at all, because they haven't done a reboot of Final Fantasy VII, let alone a remake.

they were rational yes. But a proper DMC fan would love Dante even if he does change, and appreciate that they're trying to breathe some fresh air into the franchise by changing **bleep** up.

 

In the end, new Dante still has Dante's attitude. He's still got an over-the-top look, and he's still stylish as **bleep**.

^ Yes!

People dont get what this game is about..You can ask DMC fanboys they'll tell you DMC 2 and 4 are horrible

 

Aka half the series is not good in they're opinion so they could get a DMC 5 and it could be good or really bad..

 

Or they could reboot they whole series and make four more DMC's that are all good... better graphics, better gameplay, better mechanics...   but people dont think they just complain to complain

Here's the rational form of a response to what you are proposing. Yes, any re-design of a character poses the risk of irritating fans. However, changes are made regardless. Even if by the slightest margin. Some developers take it a step further and redesign the face and hair and even the characteristics. For instance, here we have the new Dante. The old fans are in an uproar. Now i wasn't a previous fan but I knew about who the original Dante was. Seeing the new Dante made me think "hm what's going on?" But I know better then to just take it for face value. Moreover, this is a reboot is it not? So naturally, why not add a spin on to it? We don't know the story nor have we played it. For all we know, this new Dante could easily turn into the Old one or something of that nature. That's the beauty of games, the plot can make up for a lot of skepticism.

 

Now as in regards to changes in personality. Look at Jak and Daxter. Jak goes from a silent character with a smile on his face, to one clad in armor and angry at everyone with words to express said anger. He looks the same, but angrier. So we have a personality change, his face goes from happy to generally mad, but his hair is the same. I didn't freak out, I loved it.

 

Sometimes games need a change. But when you implement a change you need a very good reason. You don't simply decide to give a character a new look out of the blue. This is a reboot, I say it's a perfect change for a more drastic change.

 

Now moving onto your example for Cloud, if say Cloud suddenly had a different haircut and become happier. It would cause quite a stir, however if it made sense to the plot and was at a significant point in his existence/story, why not? I mean, we don't wear the same clothes and look the same everyday, so why should characters? It's not like the reboot for Dante makes the old Dante go into smoke. It simply means the developer is taking a different art direction and seeing how it goes.

Well Devil May Cry 4, you play half the game as someone who isn't Dante, and then you play the game in reverse, as Dante... which was the good part I think.
