I’m a big fan of action games, and the cream of the crop is Devil May Cry. The series has always had the right mix of tricky combo creation and carefree fun. When developer Ninja Theory reimagined the series in 2013’s DmC: Devil May Cry, an anarchic mood and redesigned Dante upset some fans, including myself. Having…
Focusing on themes of grief and trauma, Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice employs a number of level design and mechanical tricks to help players empathize with the main character’s struggle. We take a closer look in this critical video.
I went into Hellblade expecting another fast, fun action romp from the folks at Ninja Theory, who previously made Enslaved and DmC: Devil May Cry. After playing for about 20 minutes, I had to put the controller down. I was so stressed out that I couldn’t take it anymore.
When you first start Hellblade, a new game from Ninja Theory (Enslaved, DmC) that’s out today on PC and PS4, you are greeted with an ominous warning: Die too much and you’ll lose your save file.
I really enjoyed DMC upon its first release, dark-haired emo Dante and all. Released today, the Definitive Edition for PS4 and Xbox One gives fans of the first game a more traditional demon spawn hero to play with. He'll do. Let's play!
The demonic cabal who ruled the world in DmC are bad guys who said bad things in 2013's reboot of Devil May Cry. Now it seems one of the more egregious pieces of dialogue—which invoked an image of rough sex—has been cut from the new remastered edition of DmC.
Taking a break from making action adventure games featuring stunning characters with large, waatery eyes, Heavenly Sword developer Ninja Theory's been helping polish combat systems for the Marvel-powered Disney Infinity 2.0.
Here's a new clip from the upcoming Heavenly Sword movie. There are a lot of ninjas in it. Ninjas who ride giant kites. Let's watch them die.
Usually, when you hear about games that never make it out into the world, you get a few screenshots. Maybe a trailer teasing what might have been. But the dev studio behind Heavenly Sword and DmC are showing damn near all the work they did on a title that never saw the light of day. It's great reading for anyone…
Is that Kai?! Is this what we've hoped for? A sequel for Heavenly Sword?
Taking a break from creating big-budget console games starring striking characters with large, moist eyes like Enslaved and DMC, Ninja Theory releases a mobile brawler featuring a character with a thing for striking.
In a previous instalment of Fine Art, we highlighted the work of Ninja Theory's Alessandro Taini. So it's cool today to get the chance to show off another of the studio's talented artists, Dan Baker.
I love Ninja Theory. Not only was it my favorite elective in college, they make some pretty wonderful action adventure titles, filled with expressive characters, quirky humor and Dante fan hate. Now they've partnered with Chillingo for Fightback, an 80s-style action game for Android and iOS.
Yeah yeah, Ratchet & Clank is getting a movie. Good news for fans of the series, but more exciting for me is word that as part of the same deal, 2007 brawler Heavenly Sword is getting a movie made as well.
DmC: Vergil's Downfall is available for download today. If you haven't read Evan's review yet, I highly recommend you do. But If you want to see the DLC in action, along with a visual breakdown of a few of the major differences between Vergil and Dante, check out the video above.
To my mind, the best kind of downloadable content expands on the experience that you've grown familiar with while also offering an alternative point-of-view. The add-ons for Mass Effect 2 are exemplars, letting you take Shepard on a snarky James Bond/heist adventure or a chilling experience tinged with sci-fi horror…
The Obama administration has a lot of important things to do. Weighed against acts of governing the world's sole superpower, the Devil May Cry series is not important, no matter what some crazy fans might argue.
If you're a console-owning hack 'n slash 'n juggle fan, you've probably already got Ninja Theory's DmC on Xbox 360 or PS3. (And good for you: It's a fun game.) But if you're holding off and can wait another week, you should strongly consider waiting for the PC version, which comes out on January 25, a week from…
