What, Mirai, you mean all those crazy catholic booth babes protesting the game? I dream of a world in which catholics, booth babes and gamers can all get along. I mean next you'll be telling me that catholocism is angered over the portrayal of one of their churches in a video game or something like that.

You crazy, man. You crazy.

Anyways,

I was trying really hard to like it but after seeing Dante stitch a cross into his chest, um, "because", this game can go fuck itself.
That's like... the first cinematic in the demo. And I thought we all agreed that Dante is Kratos' day job.

...Wow.

...I think this may be the very first time that I'd actually agree with the old-school intellectual literature buffs who decried video games as mindless, degrading, unsophisticated fluff that undermined the rich history of our culture.

What we really need are less Dante Infernos and more ICOs and more Shadows of the Colossus in our videogames. We need less mindless blood, guts, and gore and more transformative art and literary depth transposed. The sad thing about Dante's Inferno isn't that a game with its kind of approach exists -- mindless, simplistic entertainment should exist, it's a necessary release and it's been a part of the human experience forever (Dante in Devil May Cry works because, for all the zany action antics, at least that Dante wasn't maiming the other Dante's masterpiece.)

What's really devastating about that piece of shit is that Fumito Ueda could have made a version of Dante's Inferno that was a beautiful work of art and that would bring respect and dignity to our beloved creative genre. There needs to be a lot more Ueda and a lot less fucking Electronic Arts to set the standards for the future.

I'm curious how it can be described as an action-adventure. Some reader is in for a shock.

No, see, you agreed with yourself.

Though I do concede the point that they wanted him to look so much like Kratos they just found an excuse to put some red on his body then went (90's kid impression) "Woah! It'd be totally rad if we made him, like, stitch it into his chest! And it was, like, a cross! YEAAAAHH!"

If it was the other level of hell, it was "Stupidity" and they've just been covering it repeatedly.

I dunno, I could see this whole fiasco as a pretty major act of Betrayal towards one of mankind's greatest literary classics and the artistic potential of the video game medium itself (as Solid Snake sort of noted).

If this doesn't earn Electronic Arts an eternity as Satan's chew toy, I don't know what else.

I remember liking Equilibrium so much back when it first came out I'm almost afraid to see it again.

Using copyright-free literature to advertise a video game VERY loosely based on said literature is stupid, cheap, and insulting to literature buffs, gamers, and their own advertising team.

Well done, developers. Well done indeed.
