We TV is exploring whether the members of the upcoming generation of hip-hop royalty can take their parents’ seats on the thrones with its order of the docu-series “Growing Up Hip Hop.”
The series follows the children of music legends Damon Dash, Rev. Run, Russell Simmons, Master P, El DeBarge and Pepa as they attempt to build their own lives and fortune in careers ranging from music to acting and fashion.
“Hip-hop is a hugely popular music genre, but beyond the songs it has become a lifestyle and has influenced a generation of young people,” said Marc Juris, We TV’s president. “‘Growing Up Hip Hop’ profiles what it’s like to be raised by hip-hop legends, living in their shadow while trying to balance success and independence.”

To flashback to 2008 for a moment, I remember the first time I got my hands on Devil May Cry 4. The previous generation of consoles was just getting rolling, and Capcom’s latest entry in the acclaimed action series was poised to be one of the first big titles for it. Not to mention, the release was coming off the sublime Devil May Cry 3, which still represents the pinnacle of the franchise to some fans.
Yet, after putting more than enough time into the title, I couldn’t help but feel a little disappointed. Yes, it still had that excellent Dmc gameplay, but it seemed like Capcom was just going through the motions. So, I shelved the title, and figured that I would get back into it at a later date. That never quite happened, but after seven years, and one reboot, Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition has brought me back »

After several months of waiting, Capcom has finally revealed that Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on June 23. The digital-only release will see a release in both North America and Europe, and will carry a cost of $24.99.
To celebrate this milestone, Capcom has released a new trailer for the remaster that focuses on the five playable characters included with the title. Those familiar with the original release already know how Dante and series newcomer Nero control, but most are probably interested to see how the returning faces play. Returning favorites Trish and Nero are joined by the newly playable Lady, and each of the three features their own unique play style.
Besides showcasing all of the furious action of Devil May Cry 4 in a blistering 60fps, the trailer also gives us a look at the improved Legendary Dark Knight Mode. A »

Mike Tyson better watch out, because Terry Crews has some sweet lip-syncing skills. Spike released a preview of Crews’ performance of Run D.M.C’s “Sucker Mc’s” ahead of Thursday’s episode of “Lip Sync Battle,” in which the “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star goes up against boxing’s former heavyweight champion of the world. Though Tyson proved himself a capable lip syncer in the preview of his performance of Salt-n-Pepa’s 1986 hit “Push It,” Crews appears to work the crowd into a frenzy with his mic skills, stage presence and white Adidas — a Run D.M.C. signature style mark.

The reign of the NFL is over ... long live Hockey ... so says one of the founding member of Run Dmc. Darryl McDaniels. Darryl says he used to be a Huuuge football fan -- until he saw the NY Rangers play. Now, he's one of their biggest fans -- and yesterday, the guy was like a Rock Star on his way into Madison Square Garden to watch his squad take on the Pittsburgh Penguins. Btw, the »

Dmc: Devil May Cry originally came out on 360, PS3, and PC just over 2 years ago. The game did well with critics (currently averaging at 85 on Metacritic) but didn’t exactly break any sales records. Thankfully this fantastic game has been given a second chance to hit big with Dmc Devil May Cry: Definitive Edition.
Developer Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword, Enslaved: Journey to the West) was tasked with giving new life to the franchise. What they created is something between a reboot and an origin story. There is far less of the Gothic architecture of old as most of the game takes place in an alternate version of modern America, in a world run by Demons. Disguised as humans, they rule over the land using their powerful demonic influence. Dmc‘s proto-Dante is a bit less Japanese »

The current gen remaster of DmC is here, and here's the launch trailer, with a special teaser at the end...
Ninja Theory's take on the Capcom series, Devil May Cry may have met some resistance with fans before its launch, but on arrival it proved itself to be a solid entry, and a fine game in its own right. Now the game, and all of its Dlc has been packaged together for current gen, and it's available now.
DmC: Definitive Edition includes the original DmC, and all of the Dlc, including the 'Vergil's Downfall' campaign. Being a current gen re-release, it also benefits from full 1080p and 60fps on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. There's also the inclusion of Vergil as a playable character in the 'Vergil's Bloody Palace Mode', as well as new modes like Turbo, Hardcore, and the ultimate challenge of 'Gods Must Die' difficulty mode.

I think it would be fair to say that DmC: Devil May Cry was rather divisive when it first launched. Despite the relatively high critical approval for the 2013 title, it was met with resistance from fans of the franchise who refused to buy into Ninja Theory’s vision. This mixed reaction would, in turn, lead to lower than expected sales for the release. Despite that, Capcom has opted to bring DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition to current-gen consoles, perhaps in hopes of attracting a new audience.
As the definitive edition of DmC, this release boasts a bevy of upgrades and additional features. Harnessing the full power of the current-gen consoles, the title has been remastered in full 1080p. The look of the game isn’t the only thing that has been changed, though, as various tweaks were made to the gameplay and story in order to smooth things out. »

Capcom’s remastered action adventure game DmC: Definitive Edition is going to be released a week earlier than originally expected.
Just last month, Capcom revealed that their reboot of the Devil May Cry series, DmC, will be given upgraded graphics and gameplay when it comes to the PS4 and Xbox One in the form of the Definitive Edition. While it was originally coming on March 17th, the game is now arriving on March 10th.
Ninja Theory has said that the Definitive Edition of the game will run at 1080p and 60fps. The new version of the game will also come with a number of new modes, including Turbo Mode (where the game runs 20 per cent faster), as well as coming with all of the downloadable content.
Devil May Cry 4, which is the final game released in the series before it was rebooted, is also coming to PS4 and Xbox One, »
