He....he's awesome?! Have you even played a DMC game properly?
Wait, how old are you? @A@

19, and I loved both 3 and 4 :P

Haven't played 1 and 2, but from what I've udnerstood 2 is so bad that alot of fans like to pretend that it doesnt exist :P 1 seems alright tho. I'd say that DMC 2 Dante is the coolest Dante tho ^^

DMC 4 Dante would be second if he didn't have the worst punchlines in video game history. I've never rolled eyes as much as I did while playing DMC 4. Shame on such a good voice actor.

by Chickenbits on Saturday, 18 September, 2010 - 17:56

dmc2 DOESNT exsist we dont pretend it doesnt!

dmc3 dante all the way.

Chicken, you know Dante is MEANT to have cringe worthy one liners, right?
He's the OTT parody xD

by Yamakuzy on Saturday, 18 September, 2010 - 22:22

Sure, he is kidna ment to be campy, I can dig that :P but... personally I think I'd enjoy the story more without them :P

But whatevs, no matter how Dante looks, the important thing is, can he kick ass?

He's only been in one trailer, so let's give him the benefit of the doubt ;)

Okay, but one more thing:
That trailer was not kicking ass. And he got chained up.
It's not longer Dante, Rename him Donto

by Yamakuzy on Sunday, 19 September, 2010 - 17:26

Oh I liked the trailer. The chaining up was "whut?" but... I mean, Dante has gotten a sword through him several times, so if not for the plot armour, Dante would have had his ass handen to him many times :P

It's not really fair to make a character invincible and say that he is more badass than one that aint imo xD that's cheating :P

by Chickenbits on Monday, 20 September, 2010 - 13:28

Well Dante isn't invincible, but he's a half demon. He's stronger than Sparda and Vergil. Because of him being a demon, he can survive being impaled because it heals him directly after, so it's not really plot armour, it's been explained in the novels, the games, as well as in the gameplay (Whenever you activate your devil trigger you heal)

And at what point did I say that Dante was bad ass because he was Invincible? Nobody says that. He's a bad ass because he can kick ass, he acts like an OTT action hero stereotype (like he was designed to be) and he's also a vortex of one liners. Nowhere on the internet have I seen someone other than you so much as mention Dante being a bad ass.

Also, Donto isn't bad ass because he does something disgusting like smoke, -tried- to be bad ass by extinguishing a cigarette on the enemies face (Only a 15 year old would find that awesome or amusing) and the trailer showed NOTHING that makes Dante what he is, no one liners, no cool swordplay (Heavenly sword style BWAHAHAHAHAH no) he didn't enjoy his battle and he didn't use any interesting gun play (Though this is to be expected, he hasn't become experienced in shooting yet as he's only 15)

I think its awesome that your doing this! and very brave too xD
either way I'm looking forward to seeing it, hope your still coming the dmc group on saturday? ^.^ I'll try and make sure no one attacks you lol I think its a shame theyve changed him so much but I'm willing to give him a chance, I'll wait til I've played the game before I condemn him entirely xD hope your gonna be warm enough though, you can always have vergy hugs if not ^.^

Oh I'll be there! :D

And I personally think that he looks even better now :P Dante has always been made to appeal to a younger fan-base (not pre-teen, but 13-16, cuz let's be honest here, how old were we when we got into DMC? :P) So I don't rly see the "kiddie" argument. Then again, I don't see the "gay" argument either, cnsidering the old Dante walks around wearing no shirt and a leather bra :P

I think it's a shame that people won't give him a chance, and it seems people are just attacking him on whatever they can find :/ (People consider it part of snakes style to smoke, people chuckled when FF7 cic lighted his dynamytes with his cigarette and noone raised an eyebrow when Kazuma or the main character of vanquished smoked). Maybe the game will suck, but I don't think it will :) We will all have to wait and see ^^

But it's cool to hear that you are supportive ^^ If anything, this will make for a pretty unique DMC meetup? ;) Plus, it's kind exciting cosplaying a character that stirs up so many emotions >: D

by Chickenbits on Wednesday, 29 September, 2010 - 13:41

Although i'm still iffy about the character (gunnah wait till the game comes out before i judge TOO much) I think you've done an awesome job on this so far :D

Thanks alot! :D Yeah I thought it turned out pretty cool :) I saw some shoes that would be perfect today but I'll see if I can find some reeeaall cheap ones... got some time left so I'll be patient xD

Yeah I'm kinda glad dmc is getting so much attention, even if it's not all good. I was starting to feel that Dante was dropping off the radar and fading away =[ I think its just from reading the books and manga etc that they've added the smoking bit but you never know, something could happen in this games story that might explain why he hates smoking later on
I think it just freaks everyone out that he's changed so much so suddenly, there was no warning or anything
It's looking pretty awesome so far though! Sweeeet coat!
I'm looking forward to seeing the finished thing xD either way it's gonna be cool

Damn o_o
Nice work on the coat!
I'll be doing Nero in October if you wanna get together, shoot the shit about how we're failed replacements and get drunk with pizza xD

Ren: yeah I can understand the emotion people get from seeing it, but I think people overreacted. The sad truth is that the whole reason Dante is getting redesigned is because Capcom didn't think the games sold well enough. It was either this or... nothing :/ But thanks alot for your comment on the coat! ^w^

Yama: Thanks bro! :) Considering what you think about the character, this means alot xD ^^ And yes we totally should! That sounds so cool! :D *reject brofist*

I was just being a troll and an angry fanboy xD More pissed that the game went over to Ninja theory and they gayed up dante xD (Though I accepted why they did it, makes sense in a weird sorta way_

haha yeah.... But like I said, like it or not, it was either this or nothing :/

I think people just gotta give Donto some time :P But the alchol+pizza thing sounds lovely 8)
