DmC Devil May Cry Definitive Edition [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

If you had not played DmC Devil May Cry on last gen consoles when it originally released then this Definitive Edition is a no-brainer; the gameplay is still fun and holds up well. If you did previously play it though, the big question is "should you rebuy?" I'd say yes simply because while the graphics have been updated slightly, but the biggest improvements come in the form of listening to fan feedback and the wish list of features requested, which is delivered in bulk. 

The Pros: 

+Keeps the same great gameplay as the original release but improved with new modifiers.
+New features such as lock-on and turbo mode make the game feel refreshing.
+All DLC included is a bonus, especially the Virgil campaign.

The Cons: 

-Bump to 1080p / 60fps, but seemingly no work on the muddy textures, so it can look dated.
-Certain cutscenes ignore your chosen DLC skin and will show Dante in default clothing instead briefly.

So, let's get this out of the way first and foremost. There was a small uprising of unhappy fans when DmC originally released because of the new artists style and character designs compared to the original Dante and others in the original games. Because Dante's look was changed too drastically, many fans didn't like the change and possibly didn't give the reboot a chance. Luckily though Capcom did create a fun game by enlisting the help of Ninja theory, known for Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (one of my favorite games) and Heavenly Sword.

DmC Devil May Cry Definitive Edition Launch Trailer

A little later on today we'll be posting up our full review of DmC (Devil May Cry): Definitive Edition, but in the meantime I figured "what the hell" we'll also show off the launch trailer for the "next gen" remaster. Mostly, this is for two reasons 1) I love me a well done launch trailer, and 2) I love me some Devil May Cry.

Shantae Claus Is Coming To Town

The superhuman ultra-geniuses and masters of ludo-alchemy at Wayforward (the studio that brought you DuckTales: Remastered, Mighty Switch Force HD and a really good Contra game for DS that I can't seem to find anywhere) are back and ready to serve you a heaping plate of holiday gaming goodness right down your play-hole. So buckle up, buccaneers, because for just a couple of bucks you can swashbuckle your way through Sequin Land on Christmas Day with the Wii U version of Shantae and the Pirate's Curse.

Horror Vacuum on Wii U Left by Capcom, Fatal Frame Must Fill It

I try not to get too bent out of shape by Game X not appearing on Console Y too much. There are countless, boring, and unsatisfying factors that go into those kinds of decisions and there's usually no point in trying to fight them.

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist Is Going To Become A Reality

As you may already know, Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist is the new venture from the team that did Street Fighter: Legacy back in 2010.  Having shown that they have the skill and passion to do SF justice, the team behind Assassin’s Fist went to the Kickstarter route to gather the additional finance required to make the series a reality.

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist Launches Kickstarter Campaign, Announces Cast Members

The Street Fighter franchise is finally poised to make a comeback in the world of cinema after a long and rather depressing history.  As you may recall, last Summer we received the rather exciting news that Capcom had given the team behind the short film Street Fighter: Legacy the ok to move forward with a full-on series.  Dubbed Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, the series is still moving forward but now it needs a little help from the gaming community via Kickstar

Capcom Unveils New Trailer For Remember Me + Release Date

If exploring a futuristic version of Paris is something you’ve keen to do as you rebuild the memories of your character, you may be happy with this latest announcement for Remember Me.  The new IP Capcom is pushing, which surprisingly isn’t developed by any of their internal studios, Remember Me caught the attention of gamers when it was revealed at Gamescom last year – not just because it shares the same title as a sappy Robert Pattison romantic drama but because it looks intriguing all around.
