Just beat the game

Holy fucking shit this is pretty much immediately one of my favorite games ever. My expectations were THROUGH THE DAMN ROOF and somehow it still completely blew them away.


Doing a Royal Guard fight against Vergil is so fucking fun. You gotta try it if you haven't

RG is super fun against Cavaliere Angelo, too. Feels like he was practically built for it.

RG is amazing in most of Dante's bosses really. Also holy shit at how much Nero's moveset changes at the end. They managed to perfectly blend in all his DMC4 stuff on top of his already great offerings here. Can't wait to start cutting loose with him on SoS!

Got to V's origin yesterday and I swear people were calling that twist from the moment his character was introduced.

The motorcycle weapon is also not as fun as I was thinking it would be but Dante is still great.

Sin Devil trigger is awesome

Cavaliere really needs the Swordmaster moves to shine, and it can be particularly nasty when used in tandem with the Faust hat's crowd control move that draws surrounding enemies towards you.

2nd run on Human for orbs + the trophy done, five missions into SoS. SoS feels like the perfect difficulty.

Yeah that looks about right. Man I love all the goofy shit in this game. As I kept going and ran into those fucking phones in the weirdest of places I kept thinking "Okay...but HOW THOUGH!?" and am met with a crazy ass cutscene of her somehow ending up in the area.

Beat Devil Hunter mode a few hours ago.

Gonna start Son of Sparda mode next.

I don't find V fun to play at all. Like, his moveset is broken and all but it feels like I'm playing a Mage of sorts and I hate playing as Mages in these type of games. It doesn't help his case that Nero and Dante are just insanely fun to play as.

Other than that minor gripe I am super excited to start SoS tomorrow.

Also, do I really have to play the game on Human mode once to unlock everything? The game was easy enough as it is on Devil Hunter (not a bragging post. I just have a lot of experience with these type of games) and I don't see any point in an easy mode playthrough unless necessary.

You only need to play Human mode if you care about trophies as there's one for beating it on Human.

Plus the trophy for S-Ranking every level on every difficulty.

Think I'll just keep progressing to the higher difficulties and come back to Human mode to wrap things up.

It feels good to play a game on multiple difficulties in 2019. I haven't done that in ages unless Soulsborne New Game+ counts.

Edit: Completely forgot I played Resident Evil 2 on all difficulties in mutiple playthroughs for the unlocks just over a month ago. What a phenomenal game that was.

Seeing so many folks on the board down on V is kind of interesting. Yeah he's nowhere near as SSStylish as Nero or Dante, but IMO he's always fun and his (relatively few) missions serve as a nice dash of variety in the areas where they're sprinkled.

Midway through Son of Sparda now, might dive straight into DMD after this or may take a short break since Bloody Palace will see me addicted to this game all over again on April 1 and I already show no signs of slowing down... I need to give other games some attention but this is just too damn good!

I've gotten more used to V and I now realize how easy he is to get an S with, but I find him to be really repetitive.I like V as like an occasional change of pace, but I find Dante way more fun.

This game is sooooo smooth. I'm surprised at how much I like all the characters too, so quickly. The arms are way deeper than I thought they would be. Got a few S combos and level rankings too. Maybe I should raise the difficulty...

Also they seriously made Kyrie an off screen house wife

Once you clear Son of Sparda you get a skill that lets you freely equip or unequip weapons from Dante, including the swords he loses due to plot.

Yeah, I have it. I read online that you need the super costume from DMD to accomplish it, though.

No you don't.

-Unlock the ability that lets you use everything or nothing with dante
-Remove all weapons and guns
-Start mission on Human or DH I guess
-Royal Guard only
-Kill shit with RG counters and build up meter with perfect blocks, taunts, and possibly getting hit
-Run past any fight that isn't a wall block

SDT is fair game to use so all meter you build from royal guard perfect blocks or from taunting / finding white orbs should go toward building that meter so you can just annihilate enemy mobs that are too annoying or will take too long to deal with

The boss is easy to beat with royal guard

All of this plus...

The thrown rose with the air taunt can kill the tentacles and give you a bit of DT.
Royal Release will damage blood clots even if you have no meter


It's honestly pretty easy to do on Human.

MAN what an ending.

Nero FINALLY gets his justice after being called dead weight all game, what a way to go. And that Devil Trigger remix!

Right?

DMC4 did basically nothing to make Nero look like he deserved to be the new main character, but this game 100% sold it. He's already a way better character at the start of the game than he ever was but he totally reaches new heights by the end.

So I haven't actually gotten around to 4 yet, I started playing the series late last year and basically pummeled my way through 1-3 and kind of burned myself out, was gonna play 4 before 5 came out but RE2 and KH3 coming out when they did nixed that idea. Definitely gonna go back to 4 some point soon though. So Nero was fresh for me here, and he's a great character. Glad I got the good version of him I guess haha?

Honestly I'm most glad I played 1 for coming into this game, there's a LOT of 1 references which is really neat.

There's some talk that Lucia will appear in the rumored Lady/Trish dlc, though even then not necessarily as a playable character. I haven't seen any actual evidence for that particular part of the rumor - or any of it, really so uh, I wouldn't get your hopes up!

Nero in 5 is kinda weird. He's like half of Nero from 4 and half Dante from DmC. But it works somehow, whereas neither the Nero from 4 (super lame crybaby) or Donte ever really worked.

But I think it will be really weird to see 4's Nero after 5.
