There is still a lot of anger swirling around the game made by Ninja Theory called DmC: Devil May Cry. From old fans and from those who support the new game that feel the old fans are hating it before it even comes out. There many things that are grating on the nerves of both sides, but I can only speak for the side of those who don't like what they see, because I don't. One of plenty of things is that the issue at hand isn't always clear. So I'm detailing why I don't like it and why not start with the oldest issue and work our way up.

The 2010 trailer was more than a culture shock, I thought someone had miss labeled the video and I was watching the trailer for some other game that had had its logo changed to make a troll. Then it became painfully clear that this was what they were going to feed us and claim that it is Devil May Cry. When I heard

Chapter 1: Love
Dante dove across the room, and seized Ebony from Patty's hands, the crack of gunfire echoing throughout Devil May Cry. The bullet had grazed his right shoulder, but the renowned devil hunter had experienced much worse. The blonde ten-year-old collapsed in his arms, her face pale and damp with perspiration. Her eyes fluttered, but they did not open.
"What the hell just happened?" Lady exclaimed, standing right behind the red-clad half-demon. Dante turned, his icy blue eyes meeting Lady's mismatched ones. Patty was cradled in his arms, unconscious. The intensity of his stare, as he tossed the gold pocket watch to her, was all Lady needed.
"So, she was possessed..." she muttered, watching as Dante carried Patty over to the couch. He gingerly laid her down on it, and proceeded to wrap his long red coat around her. Though she was sweating, she was ice cold to the touch.
He exchanged a worried glance with Lady

'My life sucks.' Dark thought as he, his brother, and parents drove down a dirt rode in their wagon that was torn at the cloth. Dark glanced at his brother, Link, looking out the window with a big grin on his face. Dark couldn't help but smile at his brother, 'He's so cute.' he thought when his face flushes from his own thought, 'Don't think that way!'
Link's completion and over all persona was the exact opposite of Dark. Link had golden hair with bright blue eyes; his skin was a soft peach, and his blue earring pierced the lobe on his right ear. While Dark was exactly what his name said; dark. His skin was pale and lifeless while his piercing red eyes could strike a screaming baby into silence; he, too, had an earring in the right lobe, but it was a charcoal black as well as his hair. Complete opposites; yet twins.
Link looked at his brother, smiling, then laid down placing his head on Dark's thigh. Dark tensed up a little, and

Rainstorms were common in the northern mountains of Hyrule, but Link knew that this was no ordinary rainstorm.Succession: Chapter 13 years ago in Drama More Like This
A light flashed briefly across the clouds, followed by another, smaller, rumble of thunder. A cold wind picked up, whistling harshly through the foggy mountains. The woods were silent in the path of the approaching storm, the local wildlife long having hidden themselves away in their burrows and nests.
Only one animal refused to take shelter just yet- an ordinary looking chestnut mare with a flaxen mane and tail. She stood quietly near the base of a tree, flicking her ears in annoyance. She knew of the coming storm, but duty kept her flight instincts from taking over.
A louder rumble of thunder sounded overhead, causing the horse to paw at the ground and whine softly. She stretched her head and neck up into the tree and lightly
SSBB: Challenger MidnaIn the large Smasher's Manor, there are always groups of friends who mainly stick with one another and rarely go outside of those friend zones. For example, the villains of Super Smash Brothers usually stick together; the Mario brothers are rarely seen apart; the Swordsmen, Link, Marth, Ike, Toon Link, Pit, and Meta Knight are close friends; the three children, Toon Link, Ness, and Lucas, are friends and playmates; and those who came from the same worlds usually hung out together, with the exception of villains and heroes. Most of these groups, despite all the differences between the thirty-five characters, have one thing in common; any of them would back up their friends in fights outside of the Brawls, which happened periodically with the villains.SSBB: Challenger Midna5 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Because of these tight-knit groups, many noticed when something was wrong with a friend and tried to resolve it as soon as they could. Almost every one of Link's friends noticed when he suddenly became depressed, even those outside of his

Over with the guard practice session, the swords men were taking a rest. The Captain came up to them and asked, "Did anybody see Oliver earlier before the session began?" asked the Captain. Almost everybody nodded back. "He was the one that brought me here but then he left." mentioned Link. The Captain came to Link, "Really, is that so? I'm going to have to have a word with him for ditching and have a bad consequence if that's what he did." replied the Captain a bit angry.
Finally catching up to Zelda, Oliver thought, "I must be careful with Zelda. She could punish me making me stay away from her. Not only that, also along with the consequences. I must find a way to apologize." Zelda was still in the courtyard, recovering her breath when Oliver caught up. "Zelda, I'm sorry!" said Oliver breathing hard. "What was that for!?" asked Zelda. Oliver sighed and took a deep breath. "Zelda, I like you and I got jealous." replied Oliver. "Jealous of what!" asked Zelda. "You and

The Demon King screamed with rage. "What have you done with the golden triangles?! Where are they?!"
"In a place where your hand cannot reach. You have missed your chance." Hylia began to construct a seal in the crater where the castle once stood. "A sacred place that ensures a demon like you could not damage it. I will protect my devoted people."
A furious expression burned into the face of the Demon King. "The humans escaped?! How dare you, goddess!" He lunged for the goddess, but his feet were trapped by the seal. As he struggled to free himself, he began sinking into the ground.
Realizing he could not escape, he pointed a claw at Hylia. "Don't think this is over," he began, "I shall bring that omnipotent power into my hands, by any means! Soon, my demon tribe will rule this world !" And with that, the rest of his body sank under the charred earth.
With the humans safe and the Demon King sealed, her duty was complete. However, there was one thing she had left to do.

Remnants of lingering daylight were slowly devoured by the growing darkness, its belly hungry and craving for more concealed shadows against the vast, luscious green land of Hyrule. Night creatures, driven by the evil that now dominated the once solitary, peaceful life of this realm, dug swiftly through the soft, fertile earth, and revealed their cunning, merciless red eyes to the sky. Shaking away the mounds of brown soil that pressed against their aching bones, they emerged, revealing rather fragile, yet aggressive foes. Welcomed by the lurking darkness that had by now swallowed up the fleeing day, they roamed and rummaged around old ruins and great, ancient trees, standing boldly since the Hero of Time's existence.
A hushed silence fell over as dusk spilled white, glowing stars under the full eye of the moon, illuminating safe, yet brightening vision for the bony, rather dust-speckled creatures. They existed for simply one purpo

The Legend of Terra
Terra has been here before. She knew that she was having a nightmare. It was the same hellish nightmare that she has been having for years, but no matter how hard she tried she couldn't wake up from her slumber. What she saw was always a blur, almost indiscernible.
What stood before her was the grand hall of Hyrule Castle. But it wasn't the hall she's come to know. It was in ruin, the great stone columns that once held up the giant painted ceilings were fallen over, the colorful banners that once adorned the walls were burned, tattered, and ripped, and holes in the ceiling from where the columns once stood let in hazy red-orange rays of light.
She stood in the back, unable to move, paralyzed as if some will was set against her own. In front of the two white marble thrones of the king and queen was a slouching body, the figure wa

A strange ball of light shot through the thick array of trees and other peculiar plant life. This ball of light was a special being known as a fairy of the forest, and this certain fairy was called Navi. Everything from the thousands of giant trees, the swaying grass, and the many number of creatures that lived throughout the forest shone with a glorious azure glow as Navi soared straight over them in a hurry. Her beautiful and radiant body lit up the gloomy darkness of the forest, casting eerie shadows that danced with the blue light. Her tiny silver wings fluttered through the cold midnight air, leaving a whimsical, shimmering stream of pristine-white dust behind her.

If I don't get help, Link will die. And it will be my fault.
It was that all-eclipsing, horrible thought that had brought Midna, panting and barely conscious, to the ghostly golden wolf, the skeletal knight that taught Link the art of sword play.
She hadn't known who else to turn to. She'd run through her options many times after she'd struggled fruitlessly against the curse by herself for a good while. She'd come up with virtually nothing. This world of Light, with all of its charm and wonder, was poorly staffed with sorcerers.
Renado from Karikariko was a shaman. Oh sure. Which was why he'd asked Link to help the Gorons free their clan leader from the fused shadow and eliminate some of the baddies from their mine. Though it had taken him days, Link had been able

When Vaati woke up, he didn't know what time it was. All he knew was that it was too dark to see anything. He felt that he was alone, and became tad frightened. The typhoon hadn't died down; it was as strong as ever.
While trying to hide his fear, he groped for the light's switch. He walked cautiously to the door which was emitting some light from its edges. Finally, the lights were turned on, and he felt slightly relieved.
He was curious about so many things. Where was he? Why was he here? Why was he well-taken care of? What do they plan to do with him once he's regained consciousness? All these circulated in his thoughts. Trying to be as cautious as possible, he leaned against the door and placed his right ear against it.
He heard noises outside. 'It must be them but what are they talking about?'

Link's imagination told him that when he opened the door the monster had entered the kitchen from the night before last, he would find a spectacularly horrifying beast lair riddled with skeletons.
The door did not lead to a spectacularly horrifying beast lair riddled with skeletons.
It led to a completely harmless, even boring room full of boxes. The monster wasn't even there (and this would be a terrible spot to fight it if it was because there was a large patch of ice in the middle).

To finally stop all this cries
Flames of purification in my command
Leaving nothing from the distorted land
Leaving only The ash and dust
Your lives will be the cost
Standing on top of tyranny tower
A message to all who will cower

This is end of your earthly life

Zelink Family - Go See Uncle Machi!Every kikwi in Faron Woods was responsible for helping to gather food for the tribe, and Machi was no exception. Every morning he would pick fresh berries and mushrooms and bring them back to share with his kin. Being the relatively easy-going kikwi of the bunch, Machi liked to vary his trips. Sometimes he would journey all the way to the Skyview Temple; other times he would circle the Great Tree. But this morning, he decided to take an even longer scenic route to the Sealed Temple, for ever since that enormous statue of the Goddess fell there, the fruit that eventually bloomed nearby was some of the best in the forest.Zelink Family - Go See Uncle Machi!3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

"Of course. Let the sem break begin!"
As the clock approaches 12 midnight, a voice can be heard talking to someone absent. As Vaati slept during the night, Link can be heard talking over the wireless phone. They both stayed in one room; Link's room, just to be safe since Smith is not around to tend to them. Being boys of mere fourteen years, they must stay safe even if both of them had the first-hand experience of real danger, danger more than any adult in their area even faced.
"So about about Vaati " Link awkwardly said as he turned to look at Vaati, just ensuring that he wouldn't hear their conversation.
