Re: Dante Action Figure Update
wesitron - I know where you're coming from, but I'm sure we'll see some of the Dante figures imported to the USA by some retailers and it'll be made available for a decent price (by decent, I mean mid-$20s probably).
I think this is a great idea as it's an incentive to buy the game for those who were holding out...and for those that buy the game and don't want the figure, eBay the figure or give it to a friend who does want the figure. (Though I'll bet most will want to keep the figure after playing the game!)
For those that think Dante's Inferno is gonna suck - you're wrong. Having seen gameplay and the animation, I think it's not only gonna rock, but give fans of the God of War series a run for their money...and even God of War 3 a run for best new hack/slash game.
That said, everyone's gonna say "God of War III is gonna rule and Dante's Inferno is a complete rip off of GOW anyhow!" While that might be true, it doesn't mean that Dante's Inferno isn't gonna be just as good - if not better - than GOWIII. In fact, GOWIII is the game that has to be super impressive as a bar has been set by GOW & GOWII, Dante's Inferno only has to be as good as it's expected to be (which, from all the hate, isn't that good) and it'll sell like crazy...
Anyhow, Randy Falk and the folks at NECA aren't dumb - they see how cool Dante's Inferno is gonna be...if they thought it was gonna suck, they wouldn't have licensed it...
Anyhow...I've had Dante's Inferno for PS3 paid for since Gamestop started taking preorders months ago!
"Until next time...have FUN with your figures!!"
