    Why would you want to read about DMC 4?

    Anyway, I don't know how NG2 came into the discussion, but say something about DMC4 and we'll be back on topic.

    Lucifer has got to be the coolest weapon ever. I mean he has a rose in his mouth, that's hilariously badass.

    No, it's hilariously feminine. It's impossible to take this seriously. They might as well have him wearing a dress.

    Dante is the penultimate badass who borders on or is outright absurd. That is part of his charm. (DM3 was the exception where he was annoying but eh).

    He is the most absurd badass in DMC4, Nero throws him against the seats and Dante hits them in a sitting position and casually draws his sword.

    He's "badass" in the Japanese way, which is to say, not "badass" at all. Wow, he hits people sitting down. A real man would eat the seats and then spit them out like bullets into the foreheads of his enemies.

    You can't be metrosexual and manly. A metrosexual is basically the cliche of a really gay man, only he's still sleeping with women at the moment.

    Zenien, he looks like an old woman, talks like a 15 year-old and has the most ridiculous (not in a good way) "fighting" "style" I've ever seen this side of the international date line.

    There's nothing badass about dressing like a postal, anorexic Santa Claus

    so here's the thing...i have all the DMCs and i've played many hours on NG sigma and i enjoy them both but i must stay from my experience with both:

    Devil May Cry has way more interesting and detailed environment design where as NG's comes off way too sterile.

    NG's combat system is much more ridged as well with "must hit in sequence in order to get the proper move" combat instead of the more fluid customizable combos that DMC offers.

    although neither really have amazing plots, NG's is far cornier than DMC's...at least DMC seems to not take itself too seriously where as NG try to play it off and just ends up falling flat on it's face in comparison.

    DMC also offers more variety in weaponry. while DMC may not have as many weapons as NG, it certainly has more variation between the kinds of weapons and how you can use them.

    DMC is just funner: more flexible combat, more interesting environments, funner and characters and more interesting enemies.

    even the music is more badass in DMC3 and DMC4 than NG...WAY more...definetly get you amped and into the game!

    and i must say that, based off the latest DMC4 videos @ gametrailers.com, i can't say i find the cut scenes but be anywhere near as corny as the previous ones and yet they still maintain the enjoyable wit and humor of the series.

    oh...and here's this:

    http://onaxis.blogspot.com/2007/12/1up-previews-devil-may-cry-4.html

    PS3 version is looking better than the 360's...(i just like to throw that in the 360 peoples faces because, around here, the PS3 fans get nothing but continous and unwarranted bull crap from the xbots *cough* Fenrir and WHF *cough* about this sort of thing)

    in short: DMC >>>>NG

    oh..and people...stop trying to win this "Dante is a manly man" thing...because having a rose in your mouth while battling demons is anything but "super manly" and who the hell is playing these games because the main charaters are macho-men anyways?...i mean really...come on...Dante is kinda metro (though he's, in 4, got some stubble) and Ryu walks around with an impenetrable wedgie and S&M wear...deal people...

    I know what you mean. Especially when it comes to design, combat, and narrative. Devil May Cry's environments are all very well meshed together, because they all have an overall dark and gothic look. NG's design feels like everything has kind of just been tossed together into a salad bowl. I like Devil May Cry's combat because it feels almost like a Tony Hawk game with a sword instead of a skateboard. It's all about stringing together combos and keeping the killing spree going as long as you can, while in NGS, it's a lot more rigid, even though it's well done for a rigid combo system. And as for story, I agree that Devil May Cry's story succeeds because it knows not to take itself seriously, and as a result, it's both funny and cool at the same time. Ninja Gaiden however has a weaksauce narrative to begin with, and it tries to be serious, so it ends up just seeming pretentious.

    They're both good games, but Devil May Cry is overall better. It has a lot more creativity fueling it IMO.

    Wrong. Both of you, horribly wrong. Opinions revoked.
