Ships Ahoy - DmC: Devil May Cry; Livestream Today

Today is the release date for the Windows edition of DmC: Devil May Cry, Ninja Theory's Devil May Cry-based brawler. The game is available from retailers in Europe, while North American customers can get it digitally via GameStop PC Downloads, Origin, and Steam. This new trailer offers a look at the PC edition in action, and Capcom Unity has word that a livestream of the PC edition is planned for 6:00 pm EST today on Twitch, and they have a set of Alienware peripherals one participant will win. Here's word on the game:

In this retelling of Dante's origin story which is set against a contemporary backdrop, DmC Devil May Cry™ retains the stylish action, fluid combat and self-assured protagonist that have defined the iconic series but inject a more brutal and visceral edge.

Excellent port. Crashed on me once about five minutes in, then ran perfect when I went through my first playthrough in two sittings.

This really is an improvement over even the best of the last installments in many ways. It's probably the best-looking UE3 game we'll ever see, and the art direction is much more interesting. There's color (mostly in the supernatural version of the city, in a nice twist) everywhere, characters are all unique and memorable, sometimes because they did a very good job making them gross and disturbing. See figure: the Succubus. If the new Dante turns you off, the new Vergil should balance that out nicely with the way he's gone through the de-anime filter. None of the backtracking nonsense from DMC4, either. Or the alternate protagonist nonsense, for that matter.

My one complaint is difficulty. It's not as piss-weak easy as DMC2 was, but it won't be giving Ninja Gaidan a run for its money like the American DMC3 did.
