Okay so I came back to this sooner than planned. Farcry 3 will have to wait.

They did a really good job of crafting a character that felt different to Dante. Devil Bringer is actually fun to use because, unlike a certain other game, this game has a lock on and it's a simple press of a button to bring enemies to you. Rather than half gussing where an enemy is and press the weapon switch and shoot buttons together, which incidentally means that you can only use guns when Rebellion is equipped (in that certain other game).

Aerial rave as a default and helmbreaker as a directional input is different, but it makes sense since the Devil Bringer makes aerial combat more accessible. Buster seems broken, but I'm assuming there will eventually be enemies resistant to it.

The Exceed system is interesting, but it's so dumb that it can only be mapped to L2/R2. Tapping those spongy triggers with pin point timing for instant exceeds is tough.

Buster remains incredibly powerful, but there are enemies who you'll have to work at if you want to buster them, especially the bosses.

I see. Now why is there a woman without any underwear on in this game?

Nero's shirt makes no sense. Why is there a zip at the top and at the bottom?

Because Japan. I never really liked Nero to be honest but at least he plays pretty well.

You should sign up for my mafia game by the way.

I will if you still need people by the time it's ready to start.

My plan was to get numbers first so I could figure out roles accordingly afterwards. It's totally cool if you don't want to play in this one but I'd appreciate a yes/no answer by the time Kaio's game is finished so I don't have to work out two sets of roles to allow for potential players.

This is definitely easier than DMC3, although that may just be because you seem to get a lot more red orbs in this game, so I've been able to upgrade my health and DT quite a bit. Credo nearly killed me, but I beat him first try without items. Only time that happened in DMC3 was Vergil 1 and Doppelganger.

Okay, Agnus 2 took me a couple of tries. Would have killed him the first time when he did his big charge attack I had no idea what it was and stood back waiting to dodge.

What is with the fucking terrible platforming sections? Why are they in the game?

I don't even recall any real bad platforming aside from like the castle where you play as Nero with the floating things that disappear.

That bit where you had climb up the spinning blades was awful.

The Dante fight was fun though.

Finished Nero's bit now. Is it ever going to be explained how he got his arm? From what I can remember, so far it's been explained that it happened on a day. But that's it.

Also, Trish has definitely had a breast enlargement since DMC1.

No, his arm is never explained.

Also, this game is definitely easier than DMC3. The enemies are a little easier, but I suspect the Proud Soul system is the main reason. I'm getting just as many red orbs as before, but because there's a completely separate currency for combat upgrades, I'm free to spend all my red orbs on blue and purple orbs.

Switching styles on the go is a lot of fun, but it really makes Dante feel overpowered. Which I guess is accurate. He doesn't seem to give a shit about anything that's happening.

Now that I've actually played these games, the TrueStyle Tournaments are even more impressive. Watching Dante's gameplay in DMC4 without having played it myself, it looked like an incomprehensible mess. But this is some cool shit.



Look at that. Just that tiny little loop near the beginning of Aerial Rave > Jump cancel > Switch to Trickster > Skystar > Switch to Swordmaster > Aerial Rave > Jump cancel etc is ridiculous.

And this;



That is insane.

Baal posted some of these a while back and they made me feel hopelessly inadequate then too.

Dante makes these bosses look pathetic. Berial and Agnus were pushovers. If I could use Royal Guard at all it would be even easier.

Finished the game. It was so obviously built around playing as Nero. Going back to him everything was suddenly a challenge again. For some reason Berial is a real pain in the ass to fight with Nero.

It's like Nero's dodge timing is different to Dante's. I have to dodge earlier than I usually would or I get hit.

The time limit really ruins Bloody Palace.
