You forgot Monster Hunter World being one of the best games this year, with no scummy loot box BS + lots of free post-launch content. But some people like to pretend they don’t know just so they can keep shitposting played out memes and misinformation.
Damn forgot about that, and it's one of my favorite games of the year.

How do you feel about this?
Where's your god now? D:
Eh, I like my chances so far. I mean, whether it's DMC5 or DmC2, it's still the fifth game in the series. And it's not like there are dedicated websites for DMC1, 2, 3 or DmC, the games' pages are either under the devilmaycry.com URL (such as http://www.devilmaycry.com/dmcde/) or under Capcom's page (like http://www.capcom.co.jp/devil4se/). So, yeah, the registration of a website called devilmaycry5.com doesn't say much to me, and doesn't even line up with the leak (which mentions the game being called Devil May Cry V, not 5).

Edit: striked through something that's actually not true, since it'd be the sixth title counting 1 through 4 and adding DmC.

I find it very hard to believe that the domain’s devilmaycry5.com wasn’t registered many years ago along with 6/7/8/9/10 etc

How you all believe this blows my mind

Ready to scream my damn head off in the theater when the trailer inevitably pops up during the Sony conference.

It's more than just uncovering the domain though.

The dedicated nameservers for "devilmaycry5.com" were configured 10 days prior to E3, on June 1. That's a pretty major detail right there. Lines up perfectly with an announcement.
Capcom/GMO also registered the domains "devilmaycry6.com", "devilmaycry8.com" and "devilmaycry9.com" all on the same day: May 18.







What makes the domain for DMC5 so important is that, unlike the other numbered domains, the DMC5 domain is on dedicated servers used for actual websites, while the others are on the GMO "domain acquired" servers. This is pretty big.

Capcom was unable to register "devilmaycry7.com" as a squatter owns that domain at the present time, so they most likely went with what they could openly acquire.

Capcom could reveal DMC5 and he still would have his doubts.

Look, once the fat lady sings then that's it (i.e., DmC2 comes after DMC5). I don't think I posted anything unreasonable either, simply pointed out how Capcom structured their DMC websites so far.

Capcom currently hold the domain for residentevil7.com and maintain it as a separate site from the main Resi site, but own very few of the domains for older games (the older ones they do own just redirect to residentevil.com). It’s pretty standard for them to maintain a separate site for new titles before eventually letting those sites die. If/when DMC5 does happen, there will almost certainly be a site dedicated to it.

Also, Resi 7 is officially stylised with VII but domain uses 7 rather than roman numerals.

- Trailer #2: Resident Evil 2 Remake, Console exclusive to PS4

Presenter: Yeah, in case you were wondering, we bought CAPCOM, take that E3 2015, Drops MIC.

What if DMC5 is RE2? Dante gets his own scenario. Have a running joke where people keep mistaking him for Spencer’s son.

It's honestly quite boring at this point, although the whining is mostly coming from people who feel that Capcom is treating Switch owners unjustly.

Not going to happen... and nobody should hope for console exclusivity...

It's happening.

This E3 we're going to see DMC5 and (finally) RE2 Remake footage. Hopefully both get 2019 dates as well.

Not long to go now. Hype levels rising.

This honestly isn't that great of an argument.

First, game companies and entertainment companies in general are known to register separate domains for larger games in a series, especially when these days SEO is a major part of marketing your site. Resident Evil 7 received its own domain of residentevil7.com even with a site for the series that is similar to the one used for DMC.

And on the topic of numerals, Resident Evil 7 is written Resident Evil VII, yet the domain is residentevil7.com and not residentevilvii.com. It doesn't make as much sense to write the Roman numerals in a domain name then it does the site title itself.

Plus, if someone were to register the DMC5 and equivalent domains, they'd need to be in Japan where they could purchase a domain from Onamae, as well as have hosting purchased for the DMC5 domain, which is now on its own dedicated nameservers used in other recent Capcom title sites. The domain moved on to nameservers on June 1, which is 10 days before E3.

I should also note that GMO is typically used by these developers. Atlus uses GMO for their domains, and they broke precedent by using a dedicated domain for P5 in Japan, which is now the norm for most Atlus games there.

EDIT: I should also mention that the previous Capcom sites all use the same nameservers. The only thing different right now is that they are not using any IP right now for the DMC5 domain. It is currently on the nameservers with no IP, probably due to early configuration.

This is a bad post.

I have to ask: did this all started because, like Crash Bandicoot, people were clamoring for one, the clamoring started building up, and then grew exponentially when rumors started spreading across the net?

When was the last time Capcom dropped two nuclear AAA reveals at E3?.. I get a bad feeling that either RE2make or DMC5's reveal will be delayed, it's most likely gonna be former if it'll happen, since they already delayed the latter's reveal.

Can we stop wishing for exclusive people???
How can I enjoy a game if people who don't think the exact same things as I do are also playing

Next you'll be telling me people who own a Switch might get the DMC Collection or something and then I'll just have to quit gaming forever

Wasn't a fan of most of the 'Main Series' DMC. The first was decent, and I enjoyed the third game whilst admittedly not giving 4 much of a chance. I did enjoy DmC though and thought it was certainly a better game than the unfortunate DMC2. I'm hoping this game doesn't completely abandon some of the positive elements of DmC but rather coalesces them with the things people love about the main series. There aren't enough character action games anymore so whatever this is I'll probably enjoy it. I very much expect more plot in this game though, like Sony recognising adding more plot and character development to GoW to cater to the European market where combo-based action games don't often do well. Add to that there hasn't been a game in the mainline series in a decade and I expect many gameplay mechanics and the style of the game to be 'soft rebooted.

Other than that RE2 is one of the games I am most excited for, so hopefully we get a big blowout for it at E3, the leaks and website registration seem to indicate something is cooking though.

He’s also the red quantum power ranger from 2001’s power rangers time force.
I mean, Eric/the Red Quantum Ranger and Vergil pretty much have the same personality anyway. One of the most entertaining parts for me whenever I go back to rewatch Time Force is seeing what feels like Daniel Southworth's audition tape for Vergil in DMC3.

Oh I’m sure Capcom saw plenty of time force clips to consider him. For a kids show, the acting in time force was pretty good. Wes and his dad were always good parts of the show.
