This game being so close is totally surreal. It felt like a nearly HL3 tier pipe dream for so long and now not only is it real but it looks amazing. I can't wait!

I'm looking forward to the inevitable flood of cutscene and combat gifs that convince more and more people to check this out, as is DMC tradition.

Other than that, it's kind of interesting how few people care about DMC on this board when its children Bayonetta and Revengeance are pretty well liked in these parts.

Sekiro is probably the biggest game of the month, come on Nanis. If you must know it's a Tenchu successor from From Software that is also carrying a lot from the Souls games.

...Anyway DMC5 looks excellent but despite having seen or played all except 2, I never actually finished any except DmC. Is it worth playing the others first or should I just watch a recap video?

It's worth playing DMC3 because it's one of the best action games ever made. If you mean storywise I think there's a recap vid or something in this one? Really though DMC's story is just like plot in porn, it's only there to get you to the action.

Oh boy, is it time for a character action game ranking? Don't @ me if I ignore a game you think should be here or include one you think shouldn't be.

DMC3 >= Bayonetta 1 > Revengeance > Bayonetta 2 > DMC4 > Ninja Gaiden Black > DmC > Ninja Gaiden 2 > DMC1 > DMC2

HM for both God Hand and W101, both of which I feel probably belong in this group design philosophy-wise but actually play so uniquely that I can't bring myself to compare them with the others.

Looking forward to this a lot. As someone who prefers heavy defense mechanics focus in CAGs (Bayo dodge, Revengeance parry), I'm not losing my mind or anything, but I actually mainly like DMC for it's dumb cutscenes more than the games themselves anyways (the opera cutscene in DMC4 was better than the actual game by far).

On Mission 2 now, just did the first Secret Mission. Can confirm is a fun game. I like the way you find Secret Missions with lining up the image in your view.

Yes this game is awesome so far but the camera feels really awkward outside of combat. Also is there no way to actually cycle through your Devil Breakers? That seems like a missed opportunity

huh I haven't been having a problem with the camera, although I did immediately go and pull it back to like max distance away because I feel like you'd want to have a wider view of everything while fighting. And I think the reason they said that you can't cycle is so you are always on your toes with having variety and having to work with what you've got. Although I think it's the Pasta Breaker from the Deluxe edition that lets you rotate your order when it's used to some degree

I didn't know there were camera settings so I'll definitely be looking at that. I guess that makes sense with the Devil Breakers but I feel like they could have upped the drop rate if that's what they're going for. They feel very scarce currently but I'm only on Mission 3 so I guess we'll see.

Halfway through the game assuming there's 20 missions. I love it, pretty easily the best in the series if the pace keeps up. Hits all the highs of both DMC3 and DMC4 while tying back to DMC1 in small ways.

They even took the few things in the reboot that I enjoyed and felt fit the DMC flavor like the style announcer.

V is super fun though I recommend changing Griffon to a shoulder button to make it easier to use him and Shadow simultaneously.

Dante is Dante, Nero is Nero with more arms and tweaked gun mechanics. I love that his gun actually sounds loud as fuck now and isn't just an E&I clone shaped like a revolver.

Yeah I love that fucking kickback POP from Blue Rose

Also learned I can change the battle music for each character from Gallery. Sorry Dante but that Subhuman music aint cutting it.

Speakin of which shame I can choose specific tracks from the store and that they aren't available to buy with red orbs or something. Didn't care much for the DMC2 tracks and want my Vergil 2 Boss theme from DMC3, Battle 1, and the DMC3 and DMC4 themes.

Nero's arms are fucking amazing and I was relishing just bouncing between them and using their riduclous effects... then I got to the first V mission and got introduced to literal mechanics rewarding you for reading poetry in the middle of a fight. Only hours in and this game is doing everything it can to rocket to the top of my list.

I don't think I'll ever get tired of the way the song fades out when you finish a fight with V or the chorus kicking in when you hit an S rank combo with Nero. This game's music is nothing short of blood-pumping.

V's playstyle seems a little easier than Nero and I assume Dante's which I'm sure will turn some hardcore vets off a bit but damn he's fun for someone like me who isn't the best starting off on these games

V is definitely way easier to do well with than the other characters but he's still a blast regardless. I do wonder how he is on higher difficulties though, because the general ease of combat with him aside it does feel like he's got a deceptively high skill ceiling.

Woo beat story and also got the secret ending for beating Urizen in the prologue. That was amusing.

No kidding! So many "HOLY SHIT" moments. Hype as fuck and there are still more difficulty levels and abilities to unlock.

Minor gripe I had though was that the final boss was a bit underwhelming difficulty wise (was still awesome on its own though with the music mix and stuff). Though to be fair I suppose Mission 19's boss was the "real" final boss and 20 was mean to be the victory lap...this might be different on higher difficulties.

Also there wasn't an extended "true" ending for doing the credits combat a certain way (be it no damage, killing a certain amount, etc.) unless I missed it / got it without realizing it?

Fucking awesome game. Devil May Cry is back baby!

His square moves with the bird are way more important than Nero or Dante's guns, they're basically half of his offense. Get the R1 + Forward + triangle move asap and use that a lot to get the panther in close so V can stay far away. Don't be afraid to spam devil trigger attacks because he regains it really quickly and especially if you work in poetry.

Dante is so completely ridiculously fun once you get into a groove with him, like holy bajesus. He's even better here than he was in DMC4, and that was a pretty damn high bar. There's a seriously solid argument that this he's the most mechanically refined character ever in a video game at this point, I'd say.

So happy to play a quality DMC game in 2019.

This is my Action games (of similar nature) ranking so far. Let's see where DMC5 stands once I'm done with it.

DMC3 > Bayonetta 2 > Ninja Gaiden Black > DMC1 > No More Heroes > Bayonetta > God Hand > Ninja Gaiden II > DMC4 > DmC > No More Heroes 2 > DMC2
