@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

So, uh, Dante's battle theme came out.

 

 

Setting aside my opinion of the band, I still really don't care for it. Deathcore, or whatever you want to classify this as, really isn't my thing and the vocals are atrocious. Even the mixing of the song seems pretty bad. Can't hear the guitars, the drums are basically silent, and the vocals are a bit too loud. If they passed on bring Shootie back, why not stick with Combichrist? They did well with DmC.

Okay, I was planning on getting it already, but the mega buster definitely makes me more eager.

 

I'm wondering about the chronology of the trailer scenes, now.  I figured that Dante returned from Hell over the course of the game, and I actually thought that the scene where he got a new client would take place at the end of the game, but then the Kylo Ren-looking guy walked in, and apparently he's the third playable character.

 

Looks like the Majin Devil Trigger is the standard now, or at least his standard form kept the wings.  Which fold into a coat.  So silly, so cool, and I wonder if the makers were thinking of Gargoyles when they came up with it.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Okay, tracked down "subhuman" Dante's theme.

 

The music itself isn't too bad, but yeah the singer isn't very good, and with the information of what the singer has done, I'm kinda hoping they do something else for the theme.

Summary of Game WATCH Article (Style switching Confirmed!)
renderTimingPixel.png

Link to the article: https://game.watch.impress.co.jp/

I don't have time to do a full translation right now so I'll try to just summarize all the new info.

  • There will be more weapons for Dante than those shown in the trailer.

  • Balrog's Blow mode will have increased damage with each punch.

  • It's possible to customize the order of weapon switching.

  • Real-time style switching is confirmed. (Royalguard and Swordmaster are mentioned in the article)

Other minor tidbits
  • Balrog is named after the character of the same name in Street Fighter.

  • Dante's head had to be made smaller than the original concept art due to the game's over-the-shoulder camera.

  • During development, Cavaliere was originally intended to be given to Nero by someone. The designer surprised everyone with the idea of using a motorcycle as a weapon after being asked to design a new devil arm.

  • Correcting this google translation someone posted: Majin Dante (魔人ダンテ) is indeed mentioned, but that's what the demon form is called in Japanese. No mention of Majin Form (真魔人Shin-Majin) from DMC2 returning.

EDIT: More info from this Dengeki article
  • There will be a boss with the word Angelo in its name.

  • 4 styles from previous DMC titles are confirmed. Rainstorm is confirmed to return.

Just FYI, that first Dante gameplay video skips the cutscene before the boss fight but shows the one after, which might be why it got removed from IGN.

 

The more I watch of Dante in this, the more I think that Dante's character in the second game is now part of his intended character arc.  The games have never really hid the fact that Dante is dealing with some major trauma from all the crap that's happened to him.  I don't think that I'd go as far as saying that his fun-loving aspects are just an act, but it's kinda telling that the only time he really lightened up in 2 was when he was fighting, and that seems to be the case in this game, too.  There's points where Dante is between fights and just seems...  weary.  And he's gone from using rigged coin flips as an excuse to help people to actively avoiding his own allies.

 

Going in chronological order, his parents were killed in childhood, his brother killed masses of humans in a bid for power, dropped into hell rather than let Dante save him, got lead into trap by a woman that looked like his mother, fought his mind controlled brother, who then exploded, then the demon clone of his mother seemingly died, then he encountered his dead brother's previously unmentioned son, which couldn't have brought up good memories.

 

With all that, the real question is whether he decided to become a coin-flipping weirdo before or after trying to drink himself to death.

 

Hmmn.  The IGN footage showed Dante fight a miniboss wearing Nelo Angelo armor.  I don't think that Vergil has gotten any less dead recently, but it looks like at least one of the factions is using Mundus' old gear.

Enh.  I'm not surprised that people keep clamoring for his return, but nothing has even hinted at a resurrection.  I can't remember whether the Order using parts of Vergil's corpse to turn people into hybrids was from something official or just a rumor, but the Sparda cultists that had his old sword didn't try to bring him back.

 

There is a theory that Vergil is the guy that ripped off Nero's arm, but I haven't found it even kinda convincing.  At least that theory remembered that Vergil was a bad guy in life, something that a lot of fans seem to gloss over.

I think there's pretty strong circumstantial evidence about the mysterious visitor who took the Devil Bringer. Have you seen the cutscenes from the playtester leak? There's some interesting stuff there but if you're trying to avoid details like that then I don't want to spoil. The sudden reveal of Nelo Angelo enemies is a neat twist, or at least keeps us guessing. I'm interested to see how it ultimately plays out.

And apparently Capcom are putting in microtransactions tied to orbs and levelling. Basically, you can buy more orbs to buy more skills faster. This has the potential to be really irritating if they decide to push up the prices for the most desirable and effective skills as an incentive to make people spend rewl cash so they can skip grinding.

Everything elde about the game sounds utterly awesome though!

It's going to be the exact same thing as they had in DMC4SE. Which means it's going to be completely and utterly ignorable and you don't have to worry about it. Also apparently the game so far hands out orbs by the bucket full.
