As if the leader of the free world doesn’t have anything better to do than to than cater the whims of gamer dorks and their warped perception of reality.
First off, has everyone picked up DmC, the Devil May Cry reboot yet? Came out last week, and it’s simply awesome. Developer Ninja Theory has done an amazing job of rebooting the franchise. And for those who haven’t, here’s what your missing out on…
If you don’t have your copy yet, simply because you forgot about its release, or haven’t had the time/money to do so, that’s totally fine. But if it’s because you don’t like the new Dante, you might be an idiot.
I too was not a fan of what appeared to be the Twilight-ification of the series lead initially, but I got over it in 2 seconds. But others are still pissed. Livid in fact. Enough to draft this petition…
Dear Mr. Obama: As a consumer to the Video Game Industry there is one Video Game that has caused a lot of controversy over the past few month’s.
The name of the game is DmC: Devil May Cry made by Ninja Theory and Capcom. A majority of gamer’s are aggravated that this game has changed so much from it’s past predecessors and the game actually insults the consumers in-game.
We, as consumers did not want nor need this reboot and we believe it violates our rights to have a choice between the original’s or the reboot. This game is violating our rights as a consumer and we believe it should be pulled off shelves from game stores due to it’s insulting nature and the fact that it violates our rights.
Please Mr. Obama, look into your heart and make the decision that will please us Gamers.
EDIT: It seems as if the petition was yanked. Oh well. Some figured it was a joke, whereas others thought it to be real. As for myself, my experience with anime dorks have proven to me that the latter is the only real answer.
Again, it amazes how some actually believe Dante’s previous incarnation was somehow “cool” to begin with. Just shows how what an excess of Dragon Ball and Naruto will do to the brain.
But at the same time, is a petition to have the President intervene on the behalf of suffering Devil May Cry fans all that worse than one asking for the day after Super Bowl Sunday be a national holiday or another that asks all hammers and baseball bats be banned? I think not.
