As a longtime fan of DMC, I get it
When the first trailer popped up, I pretty much pissed blood with rage, I screamed at my laptop, threw things against the wall, deleted everything DMC related off my PC, Pretty much boycotted Capcom, I considered trading-in my DMC games but ultimately decided to keep them, hoping that if I got lost in them, I'd forget all about it
Months passed, I didn't follow the press at all, I didn't care that they changed the look further, I didn't care that they brought in Vergil, I didn't care that they changed it to a prequel and then
to a alternate continuity.
Cut to January 17th 2013
I was browsing my local Blockbuster, then I saw it
I saw Dm C
with a big ol' sticker on it saying;
"2 NIGHTS FOR £2"
Something just clicked in me. I rummaged through my pocket and found 2 pound coins and I scrambled for my wallet to find my Blockbuster card and then took it to the front desk
I was gonna rent it, I was gonna prove to the world and myself that this was a godawful pile of shit that shouldn't exist. I had to do it, I had to experience firsthand how godawful it was.
I took it home, stuck it in my XBOX and played it
30 minutes in, I was pissed
All this time, all this time spent hating on the damn thing and yet...I was wrong
It was good
It was DAMN
I was slashing things like there was no tomorrow and loving every second of it.
And then it hit me, it's a Devil May Cry game, OF COURSE IT'S GOOD
This is DMC, just with a new story and a new haircut
This isn't "Devil May Cry 5", this is "Devil May Cry 1: Version 2", so seriously.
Coming from this guy who DESPISED THE GAME WITH A BLIND PASSION until he played it, just give it a shot
