This week sees the launch of DMC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition, a remastered version of 2013's DMC: Devil May Cry. Announced in December, the game will run in 1080p at 60fps across the Xbox One and PS4, and is described as an "improved and optimized" version of the game that will deliver a "definitive" experience.

The game follows the origin story of Dante, the protagonist of the Devil May Cry series. The 2013 version of the game was praised in GameSpot's review for its enthralling combat and variety of weapons and enemies, but criticized for its lacklustre boss battles. The definitive edition will include all previously released downloadable content, including the Vergil's Downfall campaign.

The PC version of Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed Rogue will also launch at Australian retailers this week. The game is set after the events of Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and features an assassin-turned-templar as the protagonist. Rogue introduces the air rifle, a ranged weapon which can be used to stealthily take out enemies. For more on Assassin's Creed Rogue, check out GameSpot's review.

Not completely on topic but... if this game or any other game can run in full HD it's obvious the consoles support it. Why the hell do developers insists on making next gen games that are so excessive that current gen consoles now can't keep up. Seriously, if devs used some common sense and created games that worked within the confines of the consoles instead of... for example... insisting on pointlessly adding over 15,000 NPC's on the screen that even the most robust PC's can't keep up with at one time, we could have consistently good games that also provide the best gaming experience possible for the new consoles.


It urks me that not all games run in full HD on consoles.

they gave this game to us for FREE on PS3!! So why would I pay for it on the PS4??!!?

<< LINK REMOVED >> Because not everyone owned a PS3, and not everyone that had a PS3 was paying for PS+ at that time.

The original XBOX 360 version looks damn good. If I never played it I would buy this, it's a really great game that makes you want to improve your fighting skills. The better you are the more fun the game is.

I just played it a week ago. It's a fun game but nothing more, but it is a really ugly game... even at 4k.

Alright! Time to clear this up once and for all.

Tell me exactly why people hate this game. Like write it in bullet point form if you wish.


Because from my end, i absolutely loved it! Dantes character is a douche and i didn't like him but it didn't put me off the game, in fact theres this charisma that reminds me of the old dante and really comes off as an immature young brat. But thats okay! because we are used to a 25-40 year old dante whereas this is like an 18/19 year old.


But again, this didn't distract me from the game because the the actual level design and visuals of the game are gorgeous, the gameplay is great (not perfect but awesome). I mean seriously, imagine you take dante out, replace him and vergil with mature versions that don't look so emo and a better origins story.


Would there still be hate? i mean if that was the case i think this game would have been critically acclaimed. If it wasn't for the story/characters holding it back but despite ALL this, it still doesn't justify the hate?


Do people just want to hate for the sake of it or?

As a PC gamer I don't care about the 1080p and 60fps of this version, but console players are getting a better combat system? Seriously?

This is the one series that has almost consistently left PC gamers out in the cold.

That means there's a console remaster/rerelease of DMC1, DMC2, DMC3, and DmC with nothing or old, buggy messes for PC gamers.

<< LINK REMOVED >> dude, consoles get first priority on nearly everything. it has always been this way and will never change due to the fact the bulk of game sales stem from consoles. only 10-15% of total game sales (of multiplatform games) are generated on pc. stop worrying and just get a ps4 already. you won't regret it.

<< LINK REMOVED >> lol so much fail.

Despite not getting priority on most games, the PC gaming experience is still leagues ahead of the console one in basically every way, and getting better, not just in general, but on basically every individual game.

And no, junior, PC games bring in more revenue than all consoles combined.

do you see a pattern here regarding sales percentage by platform? there is no use denying it.

LOL! That's what you bring forward as a source!?

A 3-month chart that says console sales improve when new consoles come out?

A GameSpot article about MGS5 by Eddie Makuch?

Oh dear oh dear. You're in over your head here, darling XD

Here's what real facts look like, kid. Take note of this so the next time you don't embarrass yourself so completely:

<< LINK REMOVED >> lol... that is the only article i ever see from pc elitists to back up their nonsense. that article is including all pc games, including mmos and f2p market.

we are talking specifically about multi platform releases and how they fare on each platform. the numbers don't lie but it appears you'd rather lie to yourself. you are a very foolish person and not worth having further discussion with.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Haha, oh you are just a desperate little loser aren't you?

"All" we have is a conclusive proof from a leading financial analytics site that PC gaming is ahead and set only to dominate further while console sales decline.


If only we could have Eddie Makuch on our side talking about MGS5 to give us more credibility LOL.

Yeah that's right, now is a good time for you to slump off and lick your wounds, while you think about that schooling you just received.

Bye bye, kid :)

You seem to think the only developer is Ubisoft, what's the matter, been living under a rock, kid?

<< LINK REMOVED >> The modders are not going to mod in the improved combat system into the PC version.

I can guarantee you that.

After this comes out, the only game we're going to have that's better than what's available on consoles is DMC4, and the Special Edition will remove that gap as well.

Love this game, Platinum-ed it for PS3 and can't wait to do if all over again on the PS4. A really enjoyable experience, all the hate really has me scratching my head... Aah well, each to their own :-) Hopefully by the time I'm done we'll have some more solid info on DMC4: Special Edition
