    Out of Style - Dante's Controls

    But then, you got by just fine controlling characters like Nero and Vergil, right? They have the streamlined controls that I'm looking for in Dante (and what a certain sword does to an extent). It's not really changing things all that much. It's not demanding you to start learning, like...

    Out of Style - Dante's Controls

    Not gonna lie, I think a lot of DMC's biggest problems are with an obstinate, elitist group that cares more about feeling good rather than a video game just being fun. I cannot relate, nor do I sympathize. And it's not like those skills instantly transferred from game to game anyway. The things...

    No, it's just particularly awful in DMC5. Not that DMC4 was any better. Just sad to see how far...

    Good lord is there some awful male gaze in DMC5 that we didn't need.

    Out of Style - Dante's Controls

    That's a bit of the concern, right? That you need more buttons to best utilize the control scheme they have. And as cool as that stuff is, they have sorta done away with mechanics that allow for those things, and just made them part of normal gameplay. You don't need to Guard Fly anymore...

    Out of Style - Dante's Controls

    So hey, yeah, hi! With the addition of a certain powerful new weapon, I'd like to revisit this topic. Spoilers, obviously... As a refresher, I feel that Dante's control scheme, while obviously usable, was outdated, with the control philosophy turned on its ear with DMC4se's appearance of Nero...

    Man you people are no fun. Nico is hilarious to me.

    General DMC5 Discussion *spoiler warnings*

    So this was enlightening, but also contradicts some info we received previously. Near the end of the video has Nico say "You must be V, right?" as if she's never seen him before in her life, but we were previously told that V was raised by Nico's family, and that's why they have the same...

    Pardon, I was thinking of a different term, but well, it's not like you can't do Rag Time, then Break Away and use another Breaker while something is stopped.

    Easy fix, switching cancels the currently active Break Age (if one is active). Canceling is the bread and butter of DMC, after all.

    General DMC5 Discussion *spoiler warnings*

    Nah, I intentionally picked it up, but my head was still in "O is a dodge" space, essentially because I haven't adapted yet, plus I had gone through the entire level thus far where "O is a dodge." So even though I deliberately picked it up, a part of me was still like "Danger! Hit that O...

    Looooots of information, from someone who just enjoys a good video game. Also shows that you can hold multiple Gold Orbs - he's holding 5 in the gameplay during his explanation about death and continues.

    Yeah, I still ran into Overtures, too. There's a small glimmer of hope I'll retain that the pick-ups are just set for the demo build, and it isn't indicative of the supply we'll receive determined by our "magazine" (was using the wrong word~) in the final game. I could have sworn I heard Matt...

    They don't, actually. Went into a corner when the vanguards appeared, pulled the camera up on my butt, and even though they were close, they never attacked me from offscreen. I let it sit while I typed this up, didn't get attacked.

    Yeah, there's a lot of little elements of the Devil Breakers that just aren't really conducive to the player's benefit.
