Well, He Might

Watching the most recent trailer for Devil May Cry 2 made us want to make a comic about it.  So, there you go.  Some things to keep in mind.

  • We’d had this idea a while ago, and decided instead to invest in magma spiders.  Still, this strip concept seems very familiar to us, but we’re not sure if it’s just because we had the idea before or if we actually saw it somewhere.  If that’s the case - if we saw it on your site, for example - well, we’re very sorry ahead of time.

  • Watching that trailer I felt only joy, like finding money in an old coat.  Upon further reflection I can recall that the orginal game really pissed me off, and that the last hour made absolutely no sense.  It leapt and gestured wildly, as though on fire.  No genre was safe as it careened with desperate urgency.  What they had done up to that point was extraordinary fun, which is why it performed so well on the review circuit.  God willing, Japan will simply finish the great game they started this time - and handle the denouement in a way that is not wad-related.

  • We made a drinking game for DMC - if you are under twenty-one, assume that you will be drinking wholesome milk.

So now, Dante’s hair moves around.  Sold!   

Oh, and file this under Yay:  Gamecube exclusive Clone Wars just went gold, which is very exciting indeed.  Produced by action/strategy vanguard Pandemic Studios, it’s got interesting gametypes with an eye towards cooperative play.  What I saw at E3 has kept the game fresh in my mind for months. 

(CW)TB out.

at least you don’t have to play along
