Colorwind Reviews DmC: Devil May Cry–Dante Realized

DmC: Devil May Cry may be one of the most polarizing games I’ve ever encountered for as long as I’ve been tracking this industry. Not because of a drastic change in gameplay or a disappointing ending. No, it’s all because Dante changed his hair, looks more gaunt and skinny, and he’s younger. I guess I missed it when gamers on the internet turned into Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn. Ninja Theory, make it work.

DmC: Devil May Cry Demo Impressions

163308_10151368787687022_1788448403_nSo DmC: Devil May Cry is out and as the first big release of the year, I decided to try out the demo. I’ve been partially keeping an eye on this game for three reasons. First off, I’m a fan of developer Ninja Theory. I was a fan of Heavenly Sword and was one of the few games I bought for the PlayStation 3 when I first owned it. Although it was essentially a God of War clone, it was a well made clone that did manage to have an interesting protagonist and a tone of its own. Despite Heavenly Sword not doing well, Nariko is still a well loved character and you’ll see cosplay of her all over the net. Although I didn’t play Enslaved, DmC: Devil May Cry is an action title similar to Heavenly Sword so I was intrigued. Which brings me to my second point.

Game Pitch: EA Genesis Collection

eareplaylogo_1920

Wouldn’t it be cool if Electronic Arts released a collection of games they made for the Sega Genesis? The early 90s was one of the most creative periods for EA and they certainly weren’t the evil mega publisher they are today. The made some hardcore and weird games during this time and I would love to see a collection of them all in one place. If they were to assemble a bunch of games for this, here’s what I think should be in that compilation: Continue reading “Game Pitch: EA Genesis Collection”

My Gaming Landscape [January 7, 2013]

mgl

I’ve been playing a lot of games as of late. Christmas was good to me as you can see by my two previous entries and I even managed to get Sleeping Dogs, and RAGE during the last day of the Steam sale and Red Dead Redemption for $20 at Walmart. However, the side effect of all that is I haven’t been able to focus on many of them, if at all. However, there are two games I have managed to stay with among the mountain of games I have to play.
