  1. On that note, if the mods see another example of that nickname or something similar being used in threads ("typo" or otherwise) then that user will be getting banned. Argue, agree, disagree, agree to disagree, whatever, but that kind of childish sniping bullshit needs to stop now. Thank you.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Yeah, I was playing with a guy on the same mission and difficulty who then seemingly dropped out after we'd killed all the lesser knights and left me alone for the main boss. It took me ages I don't remember DMD in DmC and DMC4 being this much of a slog. Increasing enemy damage, giving them more health and devil triggers is one thing, but it feels like I have to smash the harder enemies for absolutely ages before they eventually die. Anyway, on to mission 8 with V again before Dante shows up and I get absolutely battered on every boss from there on out. I am getting marginally better at switching between Swordmaster and Trickster to close the gap with teleporting enemies, with occasional Gunslinger use. I'm still rubbish with Royal Guard though so doing mission 10 with no weapons even on Human difficulty was a slog, especially the boss. Playing DMC5, I'm still amazed at how I managed to S rank all the DMC4 Dante levels on all required difficulties just using Swordmaster. This time around, it feels as if just relying on Swordmaster would just be limiting. I guess I still need to git gud.
  3. Sniper Alley on Mombasa, the valley bit on Delta Halo with all the insect fuckers, the Hunters in that giant throne room (also Delta Halo?) and that prison level on the Covenant home world/ship were the worst sections in the game from what I remember. I'm honestly in no rush to go back to them on Legendary, but being a glutton for punishment I went straight into Halo on Legendary and I'm getting my arse handed to me on every damn level. It's been a painful grind and I'm only on The Silent Cartographer. Fuck knows how I did this first time around, and making the par times? Lol.

    For the achievement/trophy? Being old school they don't stack, plus there's another one for S ranking every mission on every difficulty bar the easiest (which isn't actually Human, it's one called Heaven or Hell where all enemies die with one hit and is only unlocked after beating the game on Dante Must Die difficulty [the one after SoS])

    Resumed BP on mission 51 and as anticipated, I got battered by the mission 60 boss who wasn't the one I was expecting. I then had a few practice attempts in Warm Up mode and managed to win once, but I think I need to be more consistent (and also have a better set of Devil Breakers) before I'll be ready to go back and try again from scratch. Warm Up mode does mean that I can go back and practice any wave completed so far, and I think I'll be focusing on those where I ended up with a negative time because those are clearly the ones I was having trouble with first time around.

    You'll be happy to hear that mission 20 is a lot easier. On Devil Hunter, I had to use three gold orbs for mission 19, and this was after completing it on Human with most of Dante's moves unlocked. It's pretty brutal but I hope to improve when I get to Dante's levels on SoS.

    They have added a Warm Up mode when you can replay any wave that you've reached so far, which is really cool. Although it seems that the Suspend/Continue mechanic uses up the game's single save slot so if you completed a mission then it's possible that it would nuke your Bloody Palace progress but I'm too scared to test it.

    Capcom had a live stream going on YouTube of you want to spoil all the stages for yourself, but after seeing the player doing extremely long air combos with Nero and actually using Exceed properly versus randomly hitting the trigger and hoping for the best, I'm inspired to up my game. I might actually have a chance of clearing Bloody Palace with Nero reasonably quickly, considering with DMC4 I think I only to stage 10 or so on my first attempt. Dante and V are going to be a challenge though.

    Bloody Palace mode has been added with three new achievements/trophies for clearing it with each of the (current - ) main characters. I've somehow scraped my way to stage 50 with Nero and am taking a breather, but I'm not doing great with the boss fights and the next one coming up is likely to kick my arse good and proper. Whilst I'm here, how the hell do you deal with: a) The teleporting guy with the sword arms? b) The fast invisible ninja fucker? c) The queen empusa The first guy I can kind of deal with even though I have to chase after him but the ninja guy kills me (never managed to stagger him long enough to Devil Buster him) and the queen seems to be a bullet/sword sponge. I've staggered the queen empusa a few times but I'm not exactly sure how

    Halo 5: Guardians - Splitscreen inbound?

    This isn't one of the Politics threads, so some degree of civility would be appreciated, especially when you're the one barging into a mostly positive thread with a hot take.
  11. Wolfenstein: The New Order is great and you should totally play it. I've heard....mixed opinions regarding The New Colossus.

    Apparently all videos until recently have been people just spamming Royal Guard for days, which is no doubt boring to watch. This guy uses all four styles. Mission 19 boss - Dante Must Die difficulty - no damage

    I don't have Game Pass - this is possibly a good thing. Meanwhile whilst I'm still having trouble S ranking the first Dante level, I've seen a guy beat the last two bosses with Dante on DMD taking zero damage. Might as well just give up now.

    Expanding on my mind dump, although DMC4 was hailed as shit because of Nero, the lack of audio cues and nerfed Dante, it did the job for me*. I played the absolute shit out of it for four months, bought DmC day one (the stupid weapon-specific enemies was a terrible idea, but it was accessible and far far less grindy than DMC4. Bloody Palace was a bit of a letdown though) and I've bought DMCV thinking I might just get properly stylish with Dante. I've already changed styles far more then I ever did in DMC4 (Swordmaster all the way baby) and there's still a long way to go. I'm not sure I'll ever manage the jump-cancel infinite combos of legend but I'm happy to watch other people's videos on YouTube and enjoy vicariously. * I keep eyeing up the special edition on the Bone, remind myself that I did everything on the 360 and I'm good, then wavering all over the damn place. Argh.

    NG+ spoilers! As for replayability, I'm having plenty of fun going through levels multiple times aiming for a higher style ranking or trying out different ways/orders of tackling enemies. My only real complaints are that I wish cut-scenes could be disabled entirely (might affect loading times between areas as a consequence?) as well as speeding up the damn Customisation load times, but at some point I'll manage to get all the upgrades and then this won't be a problem even though getting the super taunt for all three characters is going to take an age (apparently it's possible to grind a shit tonne of orbs in Mission 13, but I don't want to do that right now). For DMC4, I got most of my Proud Souls via repeated plays of Bloody Palace mode, since it took me about 1-2 months of solid playing to clear it without using Super Nero. I just couldn't face doing the same for Dante - I learnt enough with Dante to S rank all the levels, but beyond that I didn't have the patience to go into more depth. However, with DMC5 I think I will go for it, and if there's an achievement for clearing the DLC Bloody Palace mode with each of the three characters [possibly Vergil too], then I'm all in - Sekiro is just going to have to wait a little longer.
