Game Rant Open Discussion

Here it is, the weekly Open Discussion for January 10th, 2013. Now’s your chance to choose the topics, whether they be in relation to what game’s you’re playing or news items that have caught your interest.

This week’s major new release is (of course) DMC Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory’s revitalization of Capcom‘s beloved character action franchise. While much has been made of the makeover Ninja Theory has given main character Dante, the gameplay appears to be well preserved if not improved upon.

My experience with the game at Comic Con revealed a game that was very much in the same vein as Capcom’s original, with some much needed flourishes. The wise-cracking, punk rock attitude of Dante is another thing.

On the news front there isn’t anything too ground-breaking to discuss aside from Warner Bros. registering a whole wealth of domains, presumably in connection with Rocksteady Studios‘ next Batman game. The pervading rumor thus far has been that Batman and Joker are heading back to the Silver Age of comics, but we’ll take another Batman title in any era or setting.

But those are only just some of the topics worth discussing; feel free to share your thoughts or gripes about any recent news or game that has caught your fancy. Or maybe, in the spirit of the holiday, tell us what game franchises/games you are thankful for.

Also, respect should be paid towards every commenter, and that no disparaging remarks will be tolerated. This is a place for gamers to get together and discuss the things they love, so have at it.

And if you want to talk about Movies or TV, head on over to Screen Rant’s Open Discussion post.

    Where is the news on Dragonborn for ps3 Bethesda? Hmm? this is shocking.

    • EastOfTheAnduin

      Dragonborn, Hearthfire and Dawnguard are coming for the PS3 some time in February. My guess is the 12th, 19th and 26th, respectively. They will also be 1/2 off for their first week of release.

    WOW, what a game. I think it may be the best DMC game. People hating on it before it was even released now need to shut up because this game is fantastic.

    Dante fits in so well and i think the surrounding are beautiful. the combat flows so well and the combos are crazy, especially when you start learning the cancels in it.

    The end was epic, Vergil does end up showing his true intentions… he wanted Mundus out the way so he can rule over earth, with Dante. When Dante and Kat heard that their faces were perfect, really good motion capture. After the end of the fight i do fell like Vergil should have won. It would make more sense going into the second game. You see Dante’s hair at the end turn white and was an epic moment.

    There were not many boss battles which is the biggest problem for me, other than that this game is amazing. 9/10. could be better than DMC3. I really cant wait for the sequel


    • The mighty avenger

      Yeah idk I’m still on the fence. I’m waiting for it go down in price a bit. I loved the original trilogy soo much I don’t wanna e disappointed even a little bit. I am interested in his new origin where’s e half demon half angel. I’ve watche some gameplay and don’t kind spoilers but idk. Still ok the fence.

      Did Gamerant post a review for it? Might have miss it.

        the only dmc game that sucks is dmc 2 so i can assure you that you will like this. dont let people on the internet tell you that it sucks, it doesnt. people have not even played it and they try to give their opinion.
        not sure if gamerant have done a review, im sure they will as its the only major game this month

    I’m excited, seeing as Pandora’s Tower was announced for release in the U.S. yesterday by Xseed Games. It should be out sometime this spring.

    • EastOfTheAnduin

      I know, that is awesome news about Pandora’s Tower. Honestly, that was the one (of the three) I had been looking forward to the most. Then when I write if off as a lost hope, XSEED comes through. Awesome, just awesome.

      GameStop has a place holder for 3/26. I can’t wait.

    I’m really anxious to know whether the next Skyrim DLC will be Xbox720 exclusive or not. Even though I am an Xbox360 user, I strongly feel that PS3 users should also have access to all Skyrim DLCs. I would REALLY be ticked off if the next DLC/TESgame were to be 720 exclusive. But we should all give Bethesda a break, after all they are the ones bringing the enjoyment to us!
    Your opinions?
