This. Like I said, I'm not saying VC on PSP is a horrible thing, I just think it would sell so much better in the States if it were on a console.


Hey guys, I have an idea, let's create an engine for a niche game then put both of its sequels on a portable system that will only sell well in Japan! It's a waste of time, effort and money, but hey, we're Sega, they'll understand.

Well the sales numbers of VC for the PS3 were initially infamously abysmal. That's why you had people with sigs begging others to buy the game. It's probably sold fine though, especially for being at such a low price for the past year or so.

Just saying, if you consider how cheap it is to make a PSP game compared to a PS3 title, and the fact that they'll probably get solid sales -- it's a smart move. And the developer said he doesn't want to go back to PS3 until they whip up a fresh change to the formula.

1) Valkyria Chronicles being on PSP is a bad thing, as it is inherently worse as a result.

2) I really hope Capcom pulls an RE2 with DMC5, meaning that they complete scrap it and do it right.

I mean seriously. Outsourcing is the worst thing to happen to the gaming industry since Kudo Sunoda's birth.

Haha distgfx, that pretty much sums it up. Being a huge supporter of the first Valkyria Chronicles and loving every minute of it, I don't think the game needs a new formula at all. It was already a new take to SRPG's, and it balanced everything so well. Not to mention the watercolor graphics were so beautiful.

whatever, its Sega. The company's modus operandi is to throw buckets of money at crap that doesn't sell and to Fuck up Sonic eternally. They should have gone for VC on PS3, where people in the U.S. would actually play it. I doubt the PSP sequel will sell even 30k in the U.S.

I have yet to play VC2. If they improved the narrative and character writing though, I don't see why it couldn't surpass the original.

And I don't see why you guys think the West eats up VC games. Beyond gaming forums, it's non-existent.

Wow... that DMC trailer looks like trash.
I'd have been a lot happier if it was a spinoff with Nero as the main character, maybe Dante as an unlockable model for later. :(

I hate Ninja Theory now.


Agree!

That would have been a much better idea. I actually enjoyed DMC4 and I thought Nero was an ok charatcer, I wouldn't mind another game with him in it. But this new DMC just makes me cringe.

I might finally be interested in a DMC game now that Ninja Theory is on board. Maybe.

from the DMC5 thread:


When I saw the trailer I told my roommate dante looks like a douche now. Makes sense now since he's modeled after one.


Also, I hate Capcom for letting this happen. They've already been shit this gen, but this is a whole new level.

lol DMC lol. Game looks like trash. WTF is this shit? "My name is Dante." No, it's not. Seriously.

Funny that DMC2 may not be the worst DMC when this turd gets squeezed out of Ninja Theory's ass and drops straight into the bargain bin.

Please Ninja Gaiden 3 be good please.

Game of All Time, that's what.

But it's Game of All Time no matter what you compare it to.

Yakuza 5 looks badass. I demand it be dubbed into English for US release.

"MOTHERFUCKER!!" as I'm slamming a zombie into a wall or shooting one with my big ass rifle would be amazing.

STEP THE Fuck UP, ZOMBIES, IT'S TIME TO DIE, err. . .DIE AGAIN!!

DmC sorta reminds me of Shadow the Hedgehog. Although Shadow the Hedgehog had a motorcycle.

I'm still aghast of the Ninja Theory bullshit.
Man, they're supposed to be trying to make BETTER games these days -- Heavenly Sword was okay, but it was short and something felt off...

So what do they do to follow up? Work with Capcom to finally destroy a once great franchise.
Hank was right... this shit is going to make DMC2 look like game of the forever.

I think DMC will need some QTE's. Lots and lots of QTE's.

Maybe that's their goal? Finally get back at everyone for hating on DMC2?

Shit, Nero is a stallion compared to this new douchebag "Dante".

Waiting for the serious guy in the Amazon lightning thread to say he plays games to sit back and veg out to.

Yeah. That's not Dante. Dante should be hot, dammit, not some scrawny emo kid.

I'm kind of iffy on the subject of Ninja Theory making this game, too.

Let's look at the bright side of the new Dante... he's only in DMC5 and not MvC3.
