The demo for the upcoming action slash-hacker, bash em to pieces, blood everywhere game DmC: Devil May Cry, was released onto XBL and PSN yesterday. The demo has the job of following years of criticism and cynical dismal of the game due to the protagonist having a hair style, but the resulting demo has managed to confuse fans worldwide who were expecting to be disappointed by the demo.
“I don’t understand why I’m smiling right now,” said Trevor Dimitri, a 24 year old Devil May Cry hardcore fan, when I asked him why he was smiling. “The whole thing is just… fun. I was expecting it to be difficult to control or too simple, not fast fluid and utterly gorgeous. I’m really trying to wrap my head around it. Is this a different game? Was I wrong? No it can’t be the second one, I post on the internet a lot, that guarantees my opinions are facts. Look just… just leave me alone. I need to have a think…”
The game has said to have destroyed its media image, with posts of outrage and desecration at an all time low. It’s suspect the game may soon have a reputation worth upholding, making advertising much more difficult for Ninja Theory, the team behind the reboot.
“Our plan was to inspire hatred right up to launch and then surprise everyone,” explained Ninja Theory’s lead designer Tameem Antoniades. “We thought the demo wouldn’t make a difference. I mean, we’ve toured it round trade shows and the opinion wasn’t changing so we thought we were untouchable.”
The team plan to have the game be sponsored by Mountain Dew to combat further praise.
