I probably sound slightly obsessed at this point (and that would be fair), but there are contributing factors to my DMC marathon. The biggest is that as I was training a new night baker last week my sleep cycle has been completely out of whack which cascades down into a brain that has trouble focusing on serious things. So I basically gave up, collected the cut scenes from all four Devil May Cry games, and watched them all. ( I ramble like a rose. )
There is a reboot of the DMC series in the works titled DmC:Devil May Cry, and I am already suspecting it may not interest me. I'm trying not to make snap judgments here, but I read on the internet (ha!) that in DmC:DMC Dante isn't half-human/half-demon, he's half-angel/half-demon and for me this guts the most interesting question the DMC stories raise: What makes us human? Dante inherited the strength and fighting prowess of his demon father, but more significantly he inherited Sparda's belief that the human ability to love others is an important thing. A story that doesn't involve that concept doesn't strike me as DMCish, and one that suggests that love is something only for angels repels.
