    jp's Devil May Cry 5 (PS4)

    [April 4, 2024 11:09:05 AM]
    So I took a break - and then came back to the game and had forgotten how to play. It took a bit to remember (I purposefully avoided looking stuff up because I wanted to see how easy it was for me to remember). So, some of the fights with V took longer than they should have - because I had forgotten that V has to "finish off" the

    While I often focus (for my own personal interests) on game play and game design aspects of a game - I realized as I was playing this game, the visual design of the large enemies really is phenomenal. They're both beautiful, awesome, creepy, gross, and disgusting. It's quite the accomplishment and I really appreciated it. And, this is in the context of me playing a game that is ~7 years old and running on last gen hardware. Perhaps I haven't played enough PS5 games yet so I'm still too impressionable? Have things moved that far in terms of photorealism?

    I have decided to move on even though I realize, from the back of the box, that I'll miss out on the 3rd playable character. It's no fault or problem with's just that I've got too many games to play and I think I've understood enough about this game to move on to another.

    I started to play this fully expecting to not really like it, not get too far, but at least have some sense of how the game works. So far it's full of surprises (for me at least).

    I'm probably playing on the equivalent of "easy" (I think the mode was explained as "recommended for newcomers to the DMC series", which is exactly me), so the game has not been that challenging for me. Rather, it's been enjoyable as I'm trying to learn to execute some of the combo abilities I've unlocked. I guess that's surprise number one.

    My second surprise is how many cut-scenes the game has and how often I've noticed I'm smiling at something genuinely funny that happened. I was expecting annoying man-bro teenage snark. And, there's a little bit of that - but it's not that bad. It's sort of on the right side of snark/funny. I guess that's too surprises. Lots of cut scenes and the humor.

    Third surprise is that, and I've only played 5 missions, there are (at least?) two playable characters! I've started with Nero and now I'm playing with "V". And V plays VERY differently from Nero. He doesn't really attack, he has these demons you control that are sort of like your attacks. He's weak...there's other energy bars you need to pay attention to. Obviously he's got his own set of upgrades and stuff.

    So. Lots of fun! I might even (try) to finish this one! The try is because who knows what'll happen with the difficulty level.
