Did anyone get the SE yet? I'm curious to know if it's censored.

So, I'm playing the SE and before that I decided to give the PS4 pme a go on the PS5 to see if there'd be improvements on performance and, meh... The loading times are much improved but they are still prominent and noticeable. They take a while for a next gen system running an older game. Also, if you insert the disc and you have the SE installed, it will blend them both. Not sure what's going on with that.

Here's the funny thing about all this. The loading times on the SE and nill. It's like a 3 second load, at most. I'm assuming there's some optimization going on or the emulation actually acts as a PS4 would, but faster. Whatever the case, if you have the next gen system, don't bother with the vanilla. It's just not worth using on your new system. You can't transfer your data, sure, but I'm not going to miss it.

By the way, the adaptive triggers might not be the best here. The pull back from the rev seems cool at first but I'm not sure I'm liking it.

PS: Is anyone else playing this?

I'd wager many don't have a next gen system yet, as they are sold out in a lot of places.
I myself am waiting for probably 2 years till I get a ps5 (or when FF16 drops), 5SE isn't a big improvement over the original game for me, so it is not a reason to get a new console. I'll wait for Vergil and play the LDK's version on PC, wich should give me a similar experience.

My thoughts exactly. That's why I'm actually grateful af that they're selling Vergil separately for the original game. I don't care one bit about Ray Tracing, Turbo already exists as a mod and LDK is coming too. All I really need is Vergil.

Besides, even if the SE was available on current gen/PC, I wouldn't get it anyway unless the modders would make their work compatible for that too. I want to keep Strive, full coop and all my other mods.

Made a theat for the ldk mod, that's releasing on the 16th, let me know if you're up for a coop run of that sometime, could be super fun

HIRATA: "Reason #6: Those stupid motherf***in' loading times that made you wait for two millennia every time you need to retry for S rank or No Damage attempts are pretty much gone!"

EVERYBODY: "Shut up and take my Red Orbs!"

Okay so to clear up some details about Vergil's gameplay I was a little confused by.

His doppelganger ability is technical his "devil trigger". While his Sin Devil Trigger is activated like Dante's but functions more like a traditional devil trigger, and the attacks with V are performed using the Concentration gauge?

That's actually a pretty sweet set up

But you don't restore HP like in DmC when you activate Doppelganger, since it's not an actual "Devil Trigger" transformation this time around.
You do restore HP while in Sin Devil Trigger.

I made a about the cutscene with Virgil and Dante. Just saw this one.

It's coming out this month or the next. Forgot which.

Think we'll have a costume for Virgil with his robe on as well as his default look?

Sin devil trigger seems to be more easy to level up unlike dante sin dt, and it can also be shut down at any time, while dante had to stay in that form until the end of the bar... Also you can perform like evey ultimate move from Yamato, beowulf and mirage edge in just one bar, making vergil a ****ing god lol

For the "vanilla" DMC5, I have about 6 million Red Orbs.
Will that be enough to fully upgrade Vergil when the DLC pops up?

It's Virgil. "Power. Give me more power."

You'll never have enough for him.

They released a patch who optimized the game even further and eliminated the 120fps bug

Playing as Vergil kinda bypasses all those V "puzzles" where you need to summon Nightmare in specific locations to open an alternate path.

So if you want all the Blue Orb Fragments or Secret Missions without figuring out where to summon Nightmare, then simply play as Vergil on the V stages.
