the "stupid god of war clone" part is pretty important. the only reason they are exhuming the corpse of Dante is because

1: Dante was totally in hell, and so was Kratos.

2: The Inferno mentions Greek Things, and Greek Things are totally in GoW

3: Dante is named Dante and so is Dante from Devil May Cry

I have a problem with popular media needing to appropriate a "license" or "property" for every single hackneyed piece of derivative garbage ever produced. They do it precisely so "gamers" (this word is for our purposes synonymous with "idiots") can "band together" when what we call "real people" object to the idiocy of their particular insular world encroaching on the territory of "people with brains."

Sorry but every game is made to make money. And except sports games every major title is made by people who genuinely want it to be a great game. I personally don't care for these types of games but a lot of people do.

Odds are the title was decided on by the marketing people well after the game went into production.

extralife
02-02-2010, 09:04 PM
I highly doubt the "title" was decided on after the fact. In fact, I can guarantee you it wasn't. It would be "worse" were that the case anyway!

There is a difference between "want" it to be great and "have the talent to make it great." And certainly the people that decided this game was going to be made could care less either way. Obviously there are some people working on the game that sure would like it to not suck, but...what are we even talking about here?

You're right, the game will be released and I honestly won't care because I don't surround myself with people that will have any interest in it one way or another. Definitely had to get a good laugh out of people thinking this game looks at all competent, however, and an even greater laugh out of people that had no idea Dante's Inferno was anything but a video game. It certainly doesn't do video games and the people that make and play them any good to take a piece of canonical literature and turn it into a pointless hack and slash.

Did you know you can condemn souls that are already in hell in this game. Did you know that. Seriously the New York Times wasted space talking about this game. What happened.

To kill, or not to kill?

That is the question Electronic Arts asks in their new multimedia property Dante's Inferno™. In the video game half, the answer is clear: kill. In the poem version, however, EA commissioned the eponymous Dante to envision a Hell where killing isn't the answer. Abandon all hope, ye who enter here, Dante offers as the narrative gets under way, but really, what is scarier for the modern consumer--a Hell in a book, with no threat of violence, or the fully realized 3D hell of the action game masterpiece? We here at GAMEASAURUS think the answer is obvious!

In a shocking move, EA (NASDAQ:ELEA) announced today that they were forgoing the assumed Dante's Purgatorio follow up to the smash hit Dante's Inferno, and are instead planning Dante's Inferno 2: Down the Gaping Maw of Satan, in which the player, as Dante, discovers that there's more to hell than meets the eye after the final confrontation with Satan himself at the end of the original game.

"The team felt like the wrath of Dante knows no bounds. After making the original game, we all knew there were more layers of Hell to explore," said Dante's Inferno director Jonathan Knight.

Who or what can players expect to fight this time around? "We originally planned on adding historical figures like Hitler, Stalin, and Santa Claus, but we have since come around to the idea of zombies and those pink things from Doom," Knight continued, visible excited. "For some reason video games just don't have enough zombies. Who would have thought!"

With Virgil dramatically killed by the spirit of Homer at the end of The Inferno, it falls to rugged anti-hero Brutus to act as Dante's guide through the ever expanding depths of Tartarus in the sequel.

"Brutus gets a bad rap. We have reimagined him as a gruff, rogue-ish counter part to Dante's pious vengeance. He's totally a badass," added Knight.

Dante finds himself in Elizabethan England as the young wizard Shakespeare threatens to undue the very fabric of reality by manipulating the headstrong Macbeth, mighty general of Scotland. Can Dante stop Shakespeare before Macbeth crushes England under the might of his Scottish hordes?!

Mock-heroic, mock-epic or heroi-comic works are typically satires or parodies that mock common Classical stereotypes of heroes and heroic literature. Typically, mock-heroic works invert the heroic work by either putting a fool in the role of the hero or by exaggerating the heroic qualities to such a point that they become absurd Taken from wikipedia.

ps3 is ok, it's a great media center, however the games on the 360 look and run better.Dante's inferno is available on 360 as well.

Honestly, I'm not opposed to them ripping off and mangling the story line of a classic piece of literature... the Inferno is the only part of the Divine Comedy anyone gives a flying **** about anyways, and you never know what kind of actual learning it may inspire.

I know entirely wayyyyyyyyyy too much about 2-3rd century China thanks to this mangling of historical events:

And God of War from Devil May Cry

I'm not sure what that means? All I know is that Wolfenstein 3D came first (1992) and the makers of it (id Software) used it as a model for Doom (1993)

Bayonetta was an amazing game for the genre. The story may have been awkward, but the combat is only comparable in awesomeness to DMC.

ME2 is solid, however, Bioware really sold out to try and reel in all the gears and MW2 kids that don't know what an RPG is.

Yes ME2 cut out most of the RPG stuff, but honestly I don't mind it much because most of the RPG stuff in ME1 wasn't very good (and this coming from a big RPG fan). Ultimately like most if not all Bioware games its the story and character development that make or break the game and ME2 is once again top notch stuff in that regards (Mordin rules).

As for Dauntes Inferno pretty obvious that the game is aimed at PS2 God of War fans who made the jump to the 360 and don't plan on getting a PS3. Looks like it should fill that niche quite nicely.

Those are trash mobs. Trash mobs in all Action games are easy. It's when they throw in bosses and midrange mobs in addition to the trash mobs that they get difficult.

It's still just a button masher at the end of the day. Those are only fun if the story is worth a damn. This looks essentially like Ghosts and Goblins without the need for any actual skill.

But that's not to judge anyone who enjoys the game. I enjoyed the hell out of The Force Unleashed. Got boring after awhile, but the story kept me into it.

I'd hardly call something a button masher because you have a skill that's exceptionally effective on the trash mobs of the game.
