Hater’s Ball – Devil May Cry as Metafiction?

The outlash of hate directed towards the still fresh DmC: Devil May Cry wasn’t unexpected.  People have been bitching for years, literally.  When concept art for Dante first surfaced as a young, punk-infused rebel no one could handle that his hair was a color other than white.  Far be it from us to expect the scathing idiocy to have resided after such parties (presumably) played the game, it actually got worse? The overflowing...

2012 – Year of Belated Potential

More than any other year in recent memory, 2012 saw a greater exodus of AAA titles for the following year.  Whether it was development delays of publisher schemes, there were almost countless games that got pushed for 2012’s detriment. None of these games have released yet, so it’s hard to pin a winner here.  For now we’ll simply note our most anticipated: BEST OF SHOW Devil May Cry What else could win here?  Devil May Cry walked out...
