I've just begun my first run through the hellish hack-n-slash world of Ninja Theory's "DmC" and, while the jury is still out on my end, I'm startng to lean toward the same side as Jason (his review). One thing is certain, the OST is pretty fitting for the new look and feel for the Son of Sparda. Noisia (while not exactly my preferred musical flavor) lays out a decent range from dirty, bass heavy beats to electronic schisms to hollow orchestral dirges that mesh well with the buried underworld of the demon realm. Luckily, for those that want a taste, the entire 36 song OST is up on the internet's music box, SoundCloud. I've pulled out a few samples of the ones that bent my ear. Check them out after the jump.

When we first heard Ninja Theory would take up the reins behind the new Devil May Cry, there was a sense of apprehension over the collective gaming community that turned into an uproar when the first trailer was shown last year. It seemed our beloved Dante was getting a makeover that turned him into some kind of emaciated emo Twilight character with this gloomy, sullen look, and (gasp!) short, black hair. I didn’t get what was the big deal as we eventually learned this new game would be a reboot. So I took the rage with a grain of salt and eventually the tides shifted to somewhat more open-mindedness as more gameplay vids surfaced.

Let’s get this out of the way first. Dante was never cool. His brand of give ‘em hell, too cool for school attitude only took him so far before you eventually had to roll your eyes.  Sure in my younger days I thought his rocket-riding, pizza eating, demon taunting swagger was good enough to get me hooked on the fiction but even I thought it was a little played out after the third game. Still, as goofy as Dante is he’s a very memorable character in Capcom’s deep roster. But in the end, it’s not how cool you think you are that makes a good game. No, Dante doesn’t get you pumped for DMC; the high impact, brain-melting beat-‘em-up action is what brings you to table. And it was that super intense action from those outrageous cut scenes that translated into gameplay when you got your first taste of demon slaying.

Getting delayed until 2013 is the new hip thing to do. First it was Metro: Last Light, then Bioshock Infinite, followed by Tomb Raider, Aliens: Colonial Marines, and Leisure Suit Larry. Now Capcom's reboot of Devil May Cry is following suite with a new release date set for Jan 15, 2013 in North America and Europe. As unfortunate as the delay is, the good news is that a PC version has been confirmed for later next year.
