Revisiting the Most Divisive ‘Devil May Cry’ Games [Safe Room Podcast]

Before listening to this week’s Devil May Cry-centric chat, check out last week’s episode discussing the original Dead Space!

No matter your age, we all have glaring back catalog oversights. Games that we missed due to console allegiances or simply being too far removed, age-wise, from their initial release. And while I used to view these oversights as embarrassing, over the years, I have come to appreciate my somewhat unique position of being late to the party for several behemoth franchises.

Case in point: Ninja Theory’s 2013 DmC: Devil May Cry reboot.

While it’s difficult to be oblivious to DMC’s importance to the action horror genre, it wasn’t until last year that I played the original in the storied series. Being the DMC novice I am, I was excited to dive into DmC, given my lack of entrenched fandom for the series.

Now, I think it’s fair to label Ninja Theory’s crack at Dante as infamous, as far as some fans of the franchise are concerned. A new take on a younger Dante and a streamlining of the world of DmC being the most significant cross some simply refused to bare. As I had absolutely zero reservations about the change in voice actor and depiction (a depiction that isn’t all that far removed, to be honest), I was immediately taken with engaging and responsive combat with environments far better constructed than most hack-and-slash titles.

Granted, I have never been especially precious about reboots or remakes (if I want to experience something similar to the original, I would simply go back and play that), but DmC strikes me as a prime example of portions of a fandom depriving themselves of a fantastic experience due to one or two sticking points.

This is something that Neil, myself, and our guest – Senior Editor of Playstation Universe & co-host of the Playstation Unchained podcast – Garri Bagdasarov, unpack in more depth during our chat celebrating Devil May Cry 2‘s 20th and DmC: Devil May Cry‘s 10th anniversaries, respectively! – Jay Krieger

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
