^ I've grown to love Nero in recent years, but I think how hard Capcom is trying to force him into the position of main protagonist is a mistake. Like...he's well written, but he's not written in such a way that he can support an entire game on his own, which is my biggest turn off regarding him. He, like Lucia, is written like supporting a character without strong enough characterisation or traits to stand on his own. :/ It'd be extremely disappointing to lose Dante as the MC (I say, constantly wavering between loving Dante and wanting to yeet him off a cliff) in favour of...dude who's just kinda there, which is Nero's vibe, imo. (Sorry for that tangent.)
I shouldn't work on DMC fic for NaNo, I should work on my actual work for NaNo. And yet this fic plot bunny will not stop following me. T-T -prods bunny- If I write about Vergil, will you leave??
I thought about NaNiWriMo but it would be too ambitious for me right now. I rather become more consistent first and start entering contests before attempting it.
Good luck tho.
I don't mind retiring Dante because he lost his luster by 5. But I rather hope for new writers because I'm not a big fan of Bingo and Itsuno's take anymore. Which is I'm excited for the upcoming animated series more than DMC6. Althought I'd check out both eventually.
For Nero, I'd probably lean into Fortuna and the Order more. Those are strong concepts that 4 should've tackled better. Same with Lucia and Vie Di Marli, Uroborous etc.
Jake's ending in Re6 was bonkers and I loved it. Dude needs a spinoff or to be the lead of RE9. I'm not picky.
Just like how I didn't mind Raiden in MGS2, I didn't have a problem with Nero.
In fact, I was already thinking about a "grab/throw" move in the series ever since I saw Dante pick up a Marionette off his shoulders and slams it to the ground back in the very first game.
Took them a while but we finally get a character that can do just that and I really like doing combos where the final move is a Buster.
People nowadays remember Raiden as some sort of meme factory, thanks to Metal Gear Rising but totally forget how there's so much vocal hatred towards him back in 2001.
@Rebel Dynasty I understand. The Broly movie has crazy inconsistent art. I remember when the fans were praising it simply because it wasn't the usual artist drawing the movie. Yeah it turned out super well...
. Nevertheless it sounds like you liked Super. Will you attempt the Manga version or nah?
