It’s Friday night and things are gonna get creepy and twisted around here! This week I bring you “Swamp Thing”, the latest music video from Colombian rock band Dante. Beautifully shot and incredibly mysterious, this video has inspirations from Evil Dead, Silent Hill, Dracula, Pan’s Labyrinth, and much more. Director Jorge Jaramillo did a fantastic job at creating atmosphere and this is a video that is well worth watching. Head on below to check it out!
This morning, Capcom’s PR team sent me a very stylish Christmas card that feature’s Dante from the upcoming Ninja Theory developed Devil May Cry reboot. That got me thinking about how exactly Dante would celebrate the holidays. When I imagine the parties he throws around Christmas time all that comes to mind is blood, sex, and pizza. Not a bad way to spend the holidays, I think. Check out the card after the jump. It’s pretty great.
Now this is a little disappointing. I’ll admit I got some vibes from the recent trailer where Dante wasn’t afraid to show some skin and was described by an anchorman as a “sexual deviant,” a term that was thrown around a bit in the 70′s and 80′s when intolerance of homosexuality was commonplace. While most games are busy sexualizing their women, DmC has been focusing on its lean demon slaying protagonist who winks a lot and sleeps in the nude. Sadly, according to Ninja Theory chief designer Tameem Antoniades, the new Dante hasn’t changed quite that drastically. More after the break.
