I jumped between six streams to see what the gameplay was like. They were all at different points of the game and each one was just walking simulator through the environment while whispers never stop in your ear. The only gameplay I saw was one janky fight and some thing where you match symbols. It was awful. Plus she is the ugliest female game character in history.

Did you miss the part while in hell, you have to fight a wave of enemies for 15-20 minutes? Not sure who thought that was a good idea, especially with a combat that is just press 2 different buttons, maybe dodge and activate slowdown mode. I think I can understand the reasoning behind it that it's suppose to be your character pit against insurmountable odds and triumphing over it but it becomes monotonous.

That is also not help by the fact that the game is puzzles followed by waves of enemies and you'll fight a boss. Even if you liked the game and the story, I don't think anyone can ignore that the gameplay was stale. I don't think nobody expected high octane action but the gameplay was definitely a low point for the game. Might have been better suited as an adventure game with actual puzzles. Probably might not work since they were heavily on track to displaying psychosis based on that 25 minute documentary they had. They at least portrayed the insanity visually well, probably from Tameem's own experience to get authentic experience from an insane person.

Buzzwords all over the place

immersive
thought provoking
fluid combat

A friend from this board has been streaming the game, in the first round I fell asleep, I didn't make it in time for the second but the first 3 hours of the game was just walking, looking at things, scripted combat scenes, etc., what you see in the trailers is literally the gameplay.

As usual another western developer who isn't even part of the usual clique and still manages to make a horrible looking female.

Tameem doesn't know what the fuck a succubus is.

I would have worked wonders as a puzzle platformer, not a walking simulator.

They were responsible for the HD remaster of ZoE1 and 2 and the thing was basically unplayable on release, it wasn't until some other company came in like a year later to patch the PS3 version that it became playable but the 360 version is still garbage and the damage was already done.

MKiceandfire has a walkthrough on jewtube, I usually watch all of these walking simulator types like a movie or show and skipping the walking around parts. Some games do have an interesting story and I enjoy seeing them instead of slogging through, such as Last of Us.

I watched the first two parts of Hellblade (roughly two hours) and it was just so fucking boring. The only interesting thing in the game seems to be that if you die enough times, it erases your save, but it seems like if you tap fast and hard enough before dying, it doesn't count. It seems like an interesting low budget game, so I think this is what Ninja Theory should have been doing from the start, I don't know how and why theyy got into the PS3 launch mess with a massive budget and known actors, but it's not like it was downhill from there, it's all been the same since.

That's the sort of shit Tameen comes up with.

Every time I see DmC I feel obligated to post my experience with that shit game.

I got it day 1 on PC (at a discount thanks to GreenManGaming) and I played it for a stream I was doing at the time. I was going through some rough patches in my life as well so I was drinking heavily. Very heavily.
To completely encapsulate just how shit this was as a game, it not only made me throw up at one point but the difficulty at the very late game was a joke.
game difficulty on highest you can get out of the box.
3/4ths of the way through with the game.
3/4ths through a bottle of Single Barrel Jack Daniels
One hand on the controller fighting enemies.
other hand helping me sip more sweet sweet pain-numbing alcohol.
paying attention and responding to a fairly full chatroom of people from Holla Forums
getting SSS rankings.

And that's really all you need to know about how shitty this game was on a mechanical level. That a drunk, that isn't very good at games to begin with, was wrecking the fucking thing.

Shit, pic related. The game outright tells you what its all about.

Honestly, I have nothing against the game, besides sullying the DMC name. Every medium needs trashy, shitty stuff to numb the brain, and there would be no issue if Ninja Theory stopped trying to make everyone think they're some artistic prodigies reinvesting gaming with each new title. It would also help if they stopped behaving like the teen edgelord audience they are pandering to.

I had said that without the DMC names/themes this game would probably be a passtime of perhaps 6/10 quality. Worth the time to pirate or maybe find it used or in a bargain bin for 20 bucks.
The updates to the game that made it better really came too little too late. Had the game come out with all the enhancements that were made months after its initial release it would have been decent. Not DMC name worthy decent but it would at least not piss people off on a GAMEPLAY level as well as all other levels.

That said, it was a strange weird time in the promotion of this game, wasn't it? And the complacency with which the game jurnos/media ran with it despite the fact Tameem's main point about the game was how "gay" the old DMC games were. How macho and cool the main protagonist is with his heavy drinking and bedding of women. Such things would be seen as "problematic" today by those very same game journos.

I was trying to drink myself to death at that point.
Surprisingly, the alcohol didn't seem to make me any worse at that shitty game.
And I think I also felt a slight duty to Holla Forums at that point to let them know what sort of shit game it was so they wouldn't get curious and waste money buying it or time pirating it.

Thanks to the people that watched that stream though I did end up getting encouraged to play through the whole DMC series (I had only played parts of 1, 2, and 4 at that point) and ended up playing games like God Hand, Vanquish, Bayonetta, and a bunch of other good ones.

Just hilarious that such an edgelord middleschooler fuckwit like Tameem can be defended by those people. He's basically every bit the manbaby they accuse gamers of being.

If it weren't for the DMC name and the contemptable main character, it probably would have been remembered like El Shaddai or one of Suda 51's games. Not a masterpiece by any means, but something that gains a cult following, mostly due to it having nice art direction and some cool gimmicks.

they decide the best way to achieve that goal is to focus on atmosphere rather than gameplay
the price of the game fairly reflects that it is missing elements that full price game might otherwise

and Holla Forums be all like

stop liking what i dont like
if you dont put fully fleshed out combat in your video game then it is worthless
this logic would be akin to saying talos principle is shit because it doesnt have guns and online multiplayer

theres an echo of some of the sentiment present in gamergate, the devs wanted to create something that wasnt a cookie cuter clone of call of duty and so Holla Forums gets butt mad for some reason, even though noone is making them buy it, even though its fairly priced for what it has to offer.

I miss the old DmC mockery threads.
DmC released four years ago.
Announced at least six fucking years ago.

No, it is not.
Hire company that typically makes licensed garbage to port your game.
They fuck it up hard.
Konami forced to either drop more money on fixing it, or opt to leave it borked while sales and reputation for the game continue to flop.
Hire HexaDrive to fix it (though only the ZoE2 portion of the PS3 version), but shitcan the potential (new) third game as a side effect, as HD versions also have the use of testing the waters for if a series is still viable
On a related note, sometimes I wonder if companies do shit to ruin games on purpose, as a way of creating justification to not have to bother with making more games in a series they don't really like/isn't profitable enough to them when sales naturally tank. It might cost them a chunk of money to do, but then they get an example to point at to say "well, we tried in the past and look how that did in sales".

Jack Rodriguez
Jack Rodriguez

You know, I want to give credit where credit's due: they can make games that look good. DmC had some decent style direction when it felt like it (the Fox News boss, the limbo areas in general), and Hellblade from what I've heard actually manages to run 60fps in 1440p. And the monster design in that one's pretty good, even if the main character is ugly as sin.

Like, I want to believe they're capable of making a good game, if they just had a good concept to work with and someone with actual talent in charge.

If you look at how Mass since 3 and onwards turned out it wouldnt be hat outlandish to assume that Devs fuck up so they can leave quit something.
Then again look at Valve. They made good games and then just stopped.

Jace Carter
Jace Carter

There's a simpler explanation, they fuck it up by not putting enough budget into the game, they do it because they are unsure if they'll make their money back. This creates a self-fulfilling prophecy where the game can't make the money back because it's too shit because it didn't get enough of a budget. The problem here is that the company lacked the balls to make a good product and would rather tank their reputation for a few bucks.
You realize the whole "screwed up on purpose" theory is used by feminists to justify why products aimed at females make less money.

Joshua Perry

I posted something akin to this. There's no point in creating an empty good looking game as it ends up being more of a tech demo if the gameplay is pretty much non existent.

See, the problem here is, modern western devs don't seem to give a shit about gameplay anymore. They looked at graphics and they looked at gameplay and framerate, and they decided to go after graphics to appeal to the normalfags who are easily drawn in by that shit. It's no coincidence that this became real prevalent right as games started to become "cool".
Even here, they're not trying to sell a "good game". They're trying to sell a game on the fact that it looks fancy and it has a story about mental illness.

Gameplay used to be easy to advertise, back when demos still existed. Now they don't so devs concentrate on shallow stuff they can show to retarded normalfags.
That reminds me of a thing I read back when, by the guy who created Gunpoint. Apparently people were telling him not to make a demo for his game, because he'll lose sales from people who buy without trying and end up not liking it. But instead, after he released the demo he got so many pre-orders in that one week that he was able to quit his job entirely.

Heck, here's the story right here.
pentadact.com/2013-06-18-gunpoint-recoups-development-costs-in-64-seconds/
I was informed by lots of people with industry experience that this is commercial idiocy: you want to hold it back so that excited fans buy without trying, then you can release the demo later to tempt those who weren’t convinced. And with some (not all), you get weird responses if you bring up non-money factors in a business conversation.
“You’ll lose sales this way!”
“From people who don’t really like it? I think I want to lose those sales.”
“No, you don’t understand. You’ll have less sales.“

Parker Jones

and they decided to go after graphics to appeal to the normalfags who are easily drawn in by that shit.

That's nothing new. See pic related? Sega almost passed on it. Before one producer realized it was a masterpiece, twelve people rejected it, simply because it had small sprites! It actually had some of the best visual effects on the system, but those sprites wouldn't look too impressive in screenshots.

if you want to focus on a narrative centric medium there are these things called MOVIES or those other things called BOOKS which have existed since forever

And Holla Forums is certainly not against digital versions of these, however, these are not games (which are by definition, a mechanically centric medium), they are visual novels.
This interactive narrative medium has been around since the Sega CD as far as i'm aware and it has as much right to exist in the free market as any other piece of digital media
Tath said, if you sell a visual novel as a game you are falsely advertising your product and shoehorning QTEs or the most basic of P&C puzzles to justify the "game" label on your visual novels (as Telltales often does) just makes your subversive deceit more insidious
Add to all this the fact that (((SJournoWs))) reeeeeaaaaaaalyyyyy want to normalize the "no gameplay game" meme so they can further propagandize vidya by turning it into another tool for cultural marxist indoctrination and also likely cus they fucking suck at playing vidya and of course, you can't critizice them cus "games have grown up and become (((art))) and (((art))) is subjective" never mind that they are also a consumer product and an electronic toy first and all those who dare hate the (((mature themes))) or (((progressive content))) are biggots, trolls, nazis, etc

tldr:
Visual novels are not games and should not be falsely advertised like that
There is a (((push))) to reduce the amount of gameplay in vidya and falsely advertised VNs are part of the issue
(((They))) sperg out whenever we call them out on this bullshit and that just makes the shitstorm stronger

All of the above said
Gone Homo, Sunset, all of Telltale trash, TLOU, and their ilk are objectively bad and boring overhyped memes who get rightfully crapped on and (((SJournoWs))) and their goons throwing praise at them is actually harming the industry by steering it towards becoming Kikewood 2.0 in the same way CoD dudebros and WoW nerds fucked it up by getting the market flooded with shitty ripoffs of shit games from a shit genere

Reading about the development of that game is more interesting than playing the final product.

After conceding that gameplay and story were inseparable, Garland - "a massive gamer" in his own right - became more involved.
"When we got Alex on board I did think it was mainly for dialogue writing, and he ended up doing a hell of a lot more," said Antoniades. "He worked with the designers for weeks on all aspects of the game. He's credited as a designer on the game."

Garland said: "You've got all this stuff leading up to the fight and the fight should be the exciting bit. But currently it's a bit damp: you don't feel like you're in the action."

"This is what I didn't expect Alex to do," recalled Antoniades, "basically go through the entire game when we had everything in place and talk about the gameplay logic: Why's that there? Why's that door there? Why's it got power? And he would do that all the time and we were tripping over everywhere.
"It was really tough, actually, for us," winced Antoniades. "Really tough."

Jeremiah Martinez

Devs so out of touch and incompetent a screenwriter who plays videogames managed to poke holes in the game to such a degree it made the team butthurt.

Shit man, they should hire Garland, maybe they'd actually make some decent fucking games then.

CYOA novels actually have consequences and choices that impact the story. Telltale games still can't do that, despite their entire game being about 'choice', I've gotten more interesting choices and consequences out of fucking Goosebumps CYOA novels.

The vid guy just takes people's subjective feelings about how NuDMC was shitty and uses his own subjective experience to shout 'Nu-huh it was gr8 you fags'. Everything he has to say is as valid/invalid as the detractors of the game (except for the parts where they're right), so he might as well have just shut the fuck up and said nothing especially as no-one cares now anyway.

They definitely should not have called NuDante, Dante, he was a faggot edgelord (also that face) who's attitude shat on the original incarnations. I've not even played NuDMC but everything I've seen of it repels me, not because of incompetence on the devs part but because it looks like the story of an eternal asshole carving his way through Edgeville so he can write FUCK YOU! on a piece of paper.

If I get enough money, I plan to purchase the rights to the DMC franchise just so I can call NuDante gay and to replace him with Not Important. "This old Dante would be laughed out of a gay club, my new Dante is edgy and dark".

The amount of people defending Hellblade is absurd. Seriously, I posted about the combat being janky and slow-time is the only ability they use because that's all NT know how to do, and most of the responses were "YOU HAVE TO EXPERIENCE IT MAN" and "Well you die anyway lol" (at the ending, as if that makes it better).

Every video I've watched of the combat is the most janky, button mashing thing I've ever seen. Other than that it's walking simulator with simple puzzles. The only thing they have going for it are the atmosphere and "story". If NT went into horror games or Uncharted movies they could probably give them a run for their money with how their games look aesthetically. They just need to stay away from combat that has any kind of depth. But I think even then they'll have filled their game with pretentious, edgy bullshit.

Fun fact: the game was originally going to have a hotter, fit/muscled female protagonist. When people LIKED the design and thought it was hot, NT changed it to the one we have now.

BUT as usual there were some shill reviews from independent channels that basically kept praising the game and only blamed the embargo.
Fucking worthabuy hailed it as a benchmark in immersive gaming, in spite of the fact that he never stops ranting about third person games, walking simulators, shallow combat/gameplay, short length, repetition and games pretending to be art. I'm fairly sure that dick's on the payroll, or is trying to fuck one of the dev team.

I watched Pat & Woolie play it The game looks pretty, and the surround sound works well. Some of the effects are clever (enemies quickly fade in out of the ether right in front of you and unless you're looking for it you won't see it). The atmosphere- for the most part- is very well done.

It's the best walking simulator so far- in that there's some actual challenge and ability to lose via the combat. The puzzles (from what I've seen) are looking at the environment for a specific object at specific angles to make a rune, to open a door. Can't see that being tolerated for long- even if you enjoy the Norse mythology in the background.

The way this game has succeeded is people forgetting who made it. "Oh, the Heaven's Sword guys?"
Yes- and the guys who did DMC and shat the fucking bed. Sure the game puts up the mental-health advisors as the first thing in their credits before game designers and fuck putting opening credits in your game. That's when you can tell they're really pushing the "movie-experience" when they try to emulate opening credits- but do you trust the guys who made such petty arguments against the community and the guys who wrote Donte's dialogue to be people who can be trusted to handle anything that's serious and needs gravity? Hell, I'd even argue the devs did this so they had a shield to criticism or to bait praise.
"Truly encapsulates mental health issues!"
Says the journo who's ego has been so massaged over the years he's forgotten how he used to be treated at school by his peers, or warped his memories so he was popular and had a few haters.

That's not even touching the stuff mentioned in this thread; the save-erasing game over being fake if you throw a big enough tantrum on the controller or a screenwriter having more game design knowledge than them.

It's a step in the right direction for tone, graphics, and restraint in narrative. But will they apply what they've learned when making their next game with actual gameplay? Will Tameem change from a grown man trying to act like & sell to edgy teens to some evangelical type whose trying to "send important messages" to sell it to people who want to support virtues?

Never hold back your opinion outside of Holla Forums.
Tell people what you think, and it can change minds. Show them the emperor has no clothes. And is a bit of a cunt.

When games made money, people invested in companies.
Those people demanded maximized profits.
To do that, you have to trick people into buying a product they don't like- and the product has to be as cheap as possible.
Again- complain, complain, complain. And it will stick.

It's Bioshock Infinite all over again. Pretentious hipsters latch onto the newest "deep" game and pretend the critics are just uneducated plebeians that can't enjoy the "genius" at work.

They just need to stay away from combat that has any kind of depth.
And featuring female characters, because they tend to make them look like shit, though I remember some inkling of competence in modeling females when they made Enslaved and Heavenly Blade.

When people LIKED the design and thought it was hot, NT changed it to the one we have now.
You mean, when heterosexual, white men said they liked it the mystery meat in charge got upset. Leftists will shit up anything, even their own product, if they believe white men will like it. They are mentally ill.

story wasnt bad
gameplay is boring and repetitive
atmosphere is good and drags you trought the game even when combat is boring
It was as "intelligent" as bioshit infinite was and i can already see people defending repetitive combat with "lol u r stupid u didnt understand the plot".
At least it's step up from donte playground fick dich edition

"Well you die anyway lol" (at the ending, as if that makes it better)
She doesn't actually die. She hallucinates being in hell for the final boss which you don't even fight, instead you fight three waves of enemies then there's a long cutscene talking to the final boss, she comes to terms with the fact that her boyfriend is dead and somehow that cures her insanity, and then she just walks the fuck away.

I've learned my lesson with that shit. I played DmC several times and beat on the hardest difficulty, not because I was having fun or enjoyed it in any way, but because I wanted to give a detailed synopsis of everything wrong with it to the faggots on various comments sections who'd spout out "you have to experience it!"… and you know what? After refuting all their bullshit in detail they'd magically forget all the negatives in the next comments and revert back to "all the haterz just don't like it cuz the hair! LEL!!!!"

My conclusion, NT fanboys are willfully ignorant and will defend anything they release as a cult classic.

watch some jewtuber's analysis on this
"t-the shit gameplay is intentional, and it's not really that bad"
"it's an important story of one person's battle with insanity and a quest for revenge"
"it's going to revive the mid-budget videogame market"

Firstly, I couldn't give a shit if the bad gameplay is intentional to push your message, it's still shit gameplay. Even Spec Ops the Line had simple but enjoyable gameplay, and you were supposed to feel bad about killing people in that game.
Secondly, Nier Automata's later half is also a story about going batshit insane, and getting revenge, but these fags don't really talk about that, now do they. Nier also had better gameplay, more interesting and better looking characters, worse graphics, sure, but much better design, and variety between areas. Not to mention that it was actually fun to play, even for a subpar Platinum game.
Lastly, I'm pretty fucking sure Grimoire outsold this piece of shit, so I doubt it's restarting anything.

It would be good if it proved to developers and publishers AA games can be profitable and experimentation can reward them with shekels, though I doubt the people in charge of the industry today are smart enough to figure out a moderately budgeted game that tries something new is worth the effort.

She is a breeder and you are making game for adults, do something not toned down.

Does the game actually have that, or does it just have guitar cases with guns inside of them? Because whenever I ask about mariachi assassins, all I get is "guitar cases with guns inside of them".

if you want to focus on a narrative centric medium there are these things called MOVIES or those other things called BOOKS which have existed since forever

fyi i tldr the rest of your post

so you are saying that narratives can only be exclusively these two mediums, movies and books?

so a narrative cant be

television programme
pictorial
comics / graphic novels
spoken word
poetry
imagined
role played
alagorical
smoke signaled
attributed to natural phenomena
dance
mimed
morse code
semaphore
signed language
symbolism

Nigger, there is a degree of separation between "have a story in a game" and "have a game that's just a story being told to you". This is what the entire JRPG genre is built around, and god knows Chrono Trigger has a more emotional and engaging narrative than your average walking simulator.

Reposting from other thread.

I can confirm this user is correct having just finished it. Definitely worth a pirate. It looks and sounds great. While I was playing it I wished that someone would make a cool game like it in a Zelda style or similar. Real puzzles and dungeon exploration. Hellblade is dripping with atmosphere. It has a very boring start (a 10 min boat ride with corny voices whispering in your ear) but it picks up significantly as it goes. I found myself getting drawn in, looking for faces in markings on the walls and wishing the voices would shut up and give me some peace at points, ie. like the main character. I'm glad it didn't go totally corny in the story either. Stuck to a pretty classic hero venturing into the underworld to save their love. No SJW nonsense, no tutorials, no HUD. It was a refreshing break from the trash of modern vidya.
