    No worries, mate. I think I know you by now, at least a little.

    While I appreciate the exercise in imagination you gave me by saying you would disembowl me "in the worst way possible" (what the hell is the best way?), I'm sure we can agree that I'll just keep saying whatever I want to about any subject I please, and we'll just carry on, hopefully without threats of keyboard-warriory. I think I can safely say that I generally post in a mild and reasonable way. Cheers for coming to a middle ground.

    I feel like I have to point out that, in pure fact, I've almost certainly disembowled more people than you. And I'm still not certain what the worst way would be...I did just read about some poor bloke who had to have a tumor scraped off his heart, and two ribs spread...without anesthesia. Sounds pretty bad. He claims that now, after such a traumatic ordeal, small pains like needle pricks and such are nearly euphoric for him, but he has huge anxiety beforehand.

    I see. I bet as long as Capcom is around there is a good chance that DMC comes back. They may let it lay fallow for a few years to "refresh the soil" (weeeeee farming metaphor) but it will come back.

    Fair points. Batman does have weaknesses but his biggest strength is his preparation to avoid those weaknesses. It's why he more often than not defeats superior foes. But he does lose more than his fair share when compared to other comic characters.

    Purely conjecture but could the poor sales of the recent game prove my point? Did it sell poorly because older fans that held up the franchise avoided the game due to them perceiving it as the same old stuff? I don't think we can answer that question.

    2 posts because of length:

    Example that leads me to these thoughts: my friend's little brother. He is just reaching his late twenties. Loved DMC as it initially released. Hardcore identitfied with Dante. Has little interest in the character or games now. He doesn't identify with the character anymore. He finds him stale.

    Dante's personality is a different kind of weakness. A character flaw as opposed to a physical vulnerability.

    Mentioning that you are a kid of the 90s presents a good jumping off point for my next conjecture.

    I feel like one of two scenarios will happen as the franchise moves forward (and you mature):

    #1: the games stay virtually the same and his character shows little progression. Odds are you will get sick of the franchise. You will say things like "this isn't the same as they used to be..." When in fact, the real problem is that they are exactly the same.

    #2 Dante progresses as a character in the games. As part of that true weaknesses and vulnerabilities are introduced. As a result, as long as the mechanics of the gameplat itself are solid and freshened up, you will continue to be a huge fan.

    This is about the best I could find on short notice. Happy Easter!

You fight to survive. That's all life is. Fight to be the strongest, no matter what it takes. But always remember what it takes to get there." --The Devil Hunter
