Drama in an anime that is based on an action game? Well, definitely staying out of that one.

I saw a few videos of god of war, and it's awful
999,999 combo WTF?

And DMC3 has good graphics unless you're playing the pc version.

The coolest person is obviously Dante
His jokes are awesome.

Case 1:
Patty Buckles
Got this e-mail. She doesn't believe
in chain letters. Well, Foolish Patty.
She was sleeping when her TV started
flickering on and off. Now she's not
with us anymore. Ha ha patty, Ha ha!
You don't want to be like Patty, do
you?

Case 2:
George M. Simon
Hates chain mail, but he didn't want
to die that night. He sent it to 4
people. Not good enough George. Now,
George is in a coma, we don't know if
he'll ever wake up. Ha ha George, Ha
ha! Now, do you want to be like George?

Case 3:
Valarie Tyler
She got this letter. Another chain
letter she thought. Only had 7 people
to
send to. Well, That night when she was
having a shower she saw bloody Mary
in the mirror. It was the BIGGEST
fright of her life. Valarie is scarred
for
life.

Case 4:
Derek Minse
This is the final case I'll tell you
about. Well, Derek was a smart person.
He sent it to 12 people. Later that
day, he found a $100.00 bill on the
ground. He was premoted to head
officer at his job and his girlfriend
said
yes to his purposal. Now, Katie and
him are living happily ever after.The
have 2 beautiful children.

Send this to at least 12 people or
you'll face the consequences.

0 people- You will die tonight

1-6 people- you will be injured

7-11 people- you will get the biggest
fright of your life

12 and over- you are safe and will
have good fortune!"


AhahaHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'll see how I'll die tonight,but don't worry, I'll tell you guys all about it tomorrow!

Keeping an old topic upto speed, in my freaky love of DMC, I managed to beat DMC4's DH mode (Devil Hunter for all you non-DMC nerds :P) in a day...bought on Thursday beat on friday. HOWEVER, due to friggin' Yr 11 homework It's taking me one to two weeks to beat Son Of Sparda and go onto DMD mode, only about 3 more missions :P.

Criticising DMC4, I find the only problem with it being the redudant bosses. It's like Capcom decided to take a classic DMC boss, shit on it, add next gen and make it jump around the whole ring like some of the stupid bosses in the Mega Man series (like Aqua Man who did some random crap and jumped off the screen or sum crap). Seriously. Not to ruin the last boss - But he flew around the whole friggin time, and when you manage to actually be able to damage him he just flies away and fireballs you - and not in the cool hadouken way. In the DBZ type way, where you get shat on. *Yawn*

The following is spoil tagged (not only due to spoilers but also due to excessive ranting/swearing) but people who played through DMC4 at least once (and know what they're talking about will definitely agree with me here:
THE TOAD BOSS LICKS BALLS. FUCK IF THERE WAS A STUPIDER BOSS THEY'D HAVE CALLED HIM DEMON TURD. WTF IS UP WITH THAT DISAPPEARING FAN SERVICE SH*T. Onto something better - Credo. If there was any more perfect an example of a true DMC boss, it would actually be Dante (who, subsequently, is an actual boss. And he's almost as hard as 'Vante (DMC3:SE's last boss for Vergil)/Vergil' was in DMC3. Credo, however, is filled with awesome. just the right amount of fast paced flurrys that require last second dodging to avoid and actualy take the punishment you're so clearly there to dish out. Not only that, but after you hack the living hell out of him if you buster him you get to see Nero deliver an extremely awesome and satisfying 'whirling dervish' of punches and kicks, ending it with either a comparable 'Megaton Punch' or impaling him and spinning on top of him with Yamato (If DT'ed). I love you Credo, you are the most gar boss in DMC4 - Yes, better than Dante: He gets a bit cheap :P.

Looks like they didn't do a good job on some bosses in DMC4. I loved the bosses in DMC3 (Vergil is just too awesome). I don't have a ps3 and my pc's shit so I probably won't be getting it any time soon. As for the answer to the question in the thread title, yes it is the best action game in the ps2 generations, or that's what people say.

Credo's fun to kill :lol: . I especially love it when you throw that enormously huge dagger back at him. I've never actually figured out how to break his shield though - it just breaks itself.


The last boss wasn't TOO hard to kill, you just gotta keep gliding =).
In case you didn't know (i know you probably do =P), you can blow those fireballs by shooting em with your gun.

Who's actually tried using Dante's almost-invulnerable armor? It's so kickass xD.

About the topic as well - I'd also have to agree. I never got too into DMC3, but 4 really grabbed my attention, after I figured out all of the boss-specific moves (the huge combos you can do on a boss once he's lost his shield, when he's down, etc). I personally think they really took a lot of time to think of a way to captivate the audience =)

To be rewarded with a special version of the song Pillow Talk after you beat DMC1 at dante must die have been my greatest game experience ever
DMC2 is barely worth mentioning
DMC3 was a great game, nothing more.
DMC4 I have yet to play

And Dante makes it all worthwhile =p

DMC2 is so much of a disgrace to DMC series it's not even funny. Also, according to screw attack, it "sucked balls".

Yeah, Capcom basically tells people who ask about it to pretend DMC2 never happened.

Nero is only win for me because of the voice actor (JOHNNY YONG BOSCH FTW!)

I honestly thought that Nero as a character had alot of potential, what with him being a possible?? reincarnation of Vergil, but alas, all you got was a straightforward flick and the only saving grace was the action scenes which was done by Versus' action directing Yuji Shimomura

plus, I felt snubbed because of lady's new design and her extreme lack of appearances...but thats a personal thing : )


Anyway, for a next-gen I felt that this was a good effort but if they were going to make a sequel... they are going to need to HAUL ass in its development. I'm not talking about the graphics, but its the game designs that needs to be worked on.

oh and

God of War sucks *runs away*

*but before he runs away*

I'm going to have to acknowledge that god of war is a very consistently great game, but as far as game fighting mechanics go:

DMC owns over God of War...and maybe Ninja Gaiden to a certain extent.
