Open Discussion – January 17 2013

By | 4 years ago 

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.
