    I still can't figure out the point of the trucker flipping off the characters at the end. Felt so random.



  • @ezekiel
    It's just a normal trucker thing, same as doing speed when driving

    When I'm watching a movie, typically everything has a purpose. I'm wondering if the joke is supposed to be that humans are hostile too, similar to the end of Night of the Living Dead. It feels very random to be placed right at the end.



  • @ezekiel well he was standing in the middle of the road. Of course they gonna flip to you. Nothing weird about it.

    Doesn't answer why it's part of the scene.



  • @ezekiel how so? Dude was just on his usual business and sees a guy who suddenly decides to walk in front of him. Are you saying you would be ok with it?

    How so, what? You didn't answer the question. Why is this truck and the "He was friendly" comment part of the scene? Is it supposed to be funny or stylish?

    He didn't even walk in front of the truck. I don't know what you're talking about.

    I had a feeling this wasn't part of the original ending.

    It's kind of dumb.



  • @ezekiel it is dumb but they were on the way at first. You can see them moving to the right out of the way. Driver was just a douche. And it's a remake and keeping the original ending would have been pretty campy. Game has an attitude. Compare it to original where there were not much swearing, flipping or anything rude showing on the screen. It was pretty japanese game. Think Revelations 2 started making it more like that since Moira was pretty potty-mouthed.
    Though they probably got it from Ninja Theory's DmC. Lots of swearing which really isn't good as dialogue.



  • Man I just played the original ending video Ezekiel posted.

    Holy shit the song that plays is FIGARO! The 90s were LIT! A sweet cop montage and guitar shredding.

    @tearju-engi And the funny part is that Ninja Theory made the third best DMC game in the entire franchise.



  • I'd put even the disappointing DMC2 over that laugh fest NT put out. No wonder they ditched it so suddenly in favour of a proper follow on.

    @sheria DmC has better combat than DMC1 and 2, and better characters and story than the entire mainline series.
    There is a reason 5 is taking such heavy influence from the reboot.

    Its combat sucked. I'm sorry though, but as far as story and characters are concerned, it appears to have quickly ditched that trash that momentarily fucked up the series.



  • @el-shmiablo I agree with Sheria. Combat sucked in DmC though they fixed many issues in defenitive edition. And the dialogues in cutscenes totally ruined the whole story of that game. It was definitely what DMC wasn't about. Stylish.

    @tearju-engi Saying that the combat in DmC sucked is saying that the combat in the first two games is horrible since it is mechanically very similar (and in a lot of ways superior) to those games.
    In terms of "style" it is very much a mirror to the mainline as well. Where the mainline is content with making every character an outplayed anime trope, the remake makes those same characters outplayed comic anti heroes.

    Also if you say DmC has no style after playing the Bob Vargas boss, you are straight up lying to yourself. Liliths Club is also straight baller and that Noisia soundtrack is bop city.



  • @el-shmiablo I was talking more about cutscenes and delivery of the story when it comes to stylish. He was like some generic british punk kid. Same with other cast. They were all like pulled from some lame ass crime drama. The DMC's DNA just wasn't there.
    Original was 30 FPS, lock-on was a bust, comboing was easy and getting SSS and keeping it there had no challenge. And you said it yourself that they went different direction when it came to content with the characters. That alone was why I could not connect with the characters. May as well play it in spanish, call him Donte and not even think playing a DMC game.



  • Speaking of DmC

    Wish I had gotten the whole thing recorded but he spent the whole battle running around when this happened



  • Sorry that we have been going of topic of the thread.
    Anyway. Leon S+ hardcore mode done. Just need to do Claire's and some few runs to get other trophies so I'm not far away from platinum.
    REmake took me 3 years but that game as perfect as it is needs you to be in a certain mood to go through it. Different case with RE2 remake though I have been playing it so much that other games have been neglected.

    @dmcmaster lol that's actually pretty hilarious.

    @Tearju-Engi Devil May Cry 2 is a far bigger departure in style/tone/character/story/etc than DmC was. While DmC changed some character traits and motivations, it was still very much Devil May Cry at it's core.

    @Tearju-Engi I did my Claire A and Leon B in RE2 and then hopped into REmake for the first time and beat Chris and Jill's campaign before going back to the platinum in RE2(had to wait to get the disc back from Brad from him getting the platinum). It was a lot of fun going for the platinum, didn't get bored at all doing the same runs over and over. Not sure if I can handle Real Survivor and Invisible Enemy to get it in REmake, but I had a ton of fun playing it for the first time. So happy RE2 Remake exists since it really got me invested in playing these games despite thinking I never would since I get too scared haha.
