So I wasn't enjoying V at all the second time you get control of him. I guess it is the fact that shadow never does what I want. I feel like CL had very snappy and responsive minions and this game doesn't give me that feeling. So I decided to start every fight by summoning nightmare, wiggling the left stick and spamming shadow and griffon. Instant SSS, every fight. Definitely not a fan of V, he needed more time in the Capcom oven. I really do like the character though, especially his scenes with Dante.

>God Hand
Yes, buying moves that are purely stronger sucks. But that game had such an incredible base kit to fight with, and so many extra moves to buy. Loading into Dante in DMCV and not having stinger, felt like I was playing with one hand on the controller. If I loaded up God Hand right now, I could use that base kit until the end of the game and have a blast.

I get what you're saying. When I try to play smart with him I tend to just get an A to S rank, max. When I go wild with mashing it is absolutely nuts in terms of what you're getting. His devil-trigger really is bizarrely good.

Agree on the responsiveness. Shadow tends to 'teleport' from time to time and I'm not sure what triggers it. Sometimes he'll stay close to you, other times he'll go all out. Makes doing pause combos with him annoying.

CL really was better (can't fault it, it was a game dedicated to that style after all)

> God Hand
Always deserves a mention just how well that game handled balancing, your base moves (SRK, Spin Kick, Sweep) all scale to the level you're in. Only way I ever beat Arena50 with base moveset KMS.

> Stinger
Still don't have a clue why it's always an unlockable...

Does anyone like or understand the change to stinger into million stabs? It worked perfectly in 3 and 4, now I can't pull it off reliably to save my life. Maybe he gets a move later that gives a reason for the change, but as of now, it seems really dumb. Also just got the motorcycle weapon. I wasn't planning on using it, it kind of looked lame to me. But the hits are just so hard and satisfying, definitely enjoying it. Jumping on the bike with sword master is great, reminds me of Nevan.
So flashy and dumb.
I really like gunslinger in this game too. I always loved the idea of it but in 3 and 4, but it wasn't that strong. Here you have a lot of options. You can actually stay in gunslinger and get a solid rank. I love the idea of the auto charge for EandI, but I can't figure out twosome time. Some of the little control changes from 4 to 5 are throwing me for a loop. Off the top of my head, Nero's split is different, stinger into million stabs, twosome time. Hopefully I can get this game down before Sekiro comes out. As much as I love DMC, I prefer games with good exploration on top of solid combat. DMC5 could literally just teleport you from fight to fight with cut-scenes in-between(like Mitsurugi Kamui Hikae), and it would be just as good. The exploration here compared to 1 and 3 is laughable.

For Million Stab you need to do the input and let go of the direction afterwards before the hit connects. It's a bit tricky to do up close, but works decently well at range. I'm more a tad annoyed that you can't really cancel out some animations - Dante feels a lot less 'safe' and 'mobile' at times which just feels weird.

> exploration
Hm, I slightly disagree but do understand you. There's plenty of hidden fights, rooms and hidden orb caches to find I feel. It isn't as 'open' as DMC3, with items, backtracking and some exploration mixed in, but it is a lot better than DMC4 I feel in that regard.

I haven't unlocked it yet but the ability is called Irregular Full Custom, I believe. It also allows you to equip all of Dante's weapons at the same time (including all of his sword variations), which is great for those who love pressing L2/LT!

So the ranking system has been exposed. Basically your rank is an average of the fights done, times the multiplier you get near the end. You can skip all non-forced fights as a result and while it will give you a D for doing so, the final level rank will  be S as long as you got a good S+ score on the fights that you did do.

Example:

They are just there for bonus orbs, they don't contribute anything as far as I know. The nice touch though is that the actual rank isn't that important, it's the 'details' screen that seperates the men from the boys. I can get a BCAAS ranking and still get an S overall thanks to the game just being way to lenient.

Regarding the ranking system, do you (for example) get an SSS rank on a fight by finishing the fight at SSS, or do you just need to reach it at some point during the battle?

My save got borked, and it seems pc saves are id locked. So until people figure out a way to download saves I am probably done with this game. I downloaded a trainer to beat the urizen and unlock SoS, but honestly the thought of having to play as V makes me not want to touch this. It is a shame because I think the combat of Dante/Nero is top notch. I am very excited for bloody palace. I just want to fight everything in the game as Nero, bosses and all. I never want to play as V again.

Rankings gotten during a fight mean nothing, it is all about the stylishpoints. If you get 5000, 4000 and 3000 points, your average would be 4.000, which isn't enough for S-rank, even with the 1.2 No Continues Modifier.

Ranking system is nothing alike to MGR:R, this game's ranking system is all about avoiding every possible fight outside of the forced ones and getting high style-points in those select engagements.

Shit, sorry to hear that man! Really, once again, showing that when you have seperate characters it is best to also seperate their campaigns. For all its mistakes, Resident Evil 6 at least got that right. It's the Girl Chapters from Ninja Gaiden all over again, in overdrive.

The ranking system seems weird. It really feels like as long as I don’t die I get an S rank, but going off your explanation, that makes sense.

>save borked
That sucks man, sorry. I get what you mean about V in a way. I enjoyed him on DH and SoS but his missions are an absolute drag on DMD.

I’m finding DMD to be a drag in general though, that last battle in mission 7 feels like it goes on forever. Surely Itsuno and the rest of the team can come up with a way to up the intensity of DMD without resorting to insane health pools. I personally prefer when my action games have the enemy and player at low health so this mode is just...eh. Not sure if I’m missing all of the most powerful set-ups or something, but no matter what I try a lot of battles just become tedious.

I found a trainer on pc that let's me one hit kill everything and play in super speed. I am just gonna chip away at speed running SoS to be ready for Bloody Palace, I am done with the campaign though, I didn't really enjoy it at all. But the core fighting is so good. I love max Exceed. Of all the "Just" Mechanics in action games, that one might be my favorite. The way I described this game to my GF was, it's like playing an instrument, or making art. You have all of these tools and can just let your imagine go wild. But they lock so much behind beating modes/grinding orbs. It is like being in art class and being told what you are painting and how. It's a complete drag. That being said, we have all been able to load up our completed DMC4 or 3 save for years now. I'm sure it was a grind then too, but not this bad. I don't remember Special Edition being that grindy and that was a couple years ago, and DMC3 had the code to let you play DMD with a fresh save.
We also need a story discussion thread or just put spoilers here, there are so many weird choices they took with the cutscenes.

Can someone explain Nero's breaker magazine and what happens when you pick up a breaker?

It's annoying having it switch to whatever I just picked up. A lot of the time I'll want what I see, but don't want to lose what I have equipped. Makes it hard to get used to stuff. I know, I can go to the Void but I'm leaving that until I've beaten the game and unlocked all the skills.

No problem. Basically how it works:

What you pick up shoves the rest back one number, so it is the first. Say your order is this:
1. Overture
2. Punchline
3. Tomboy

And then you see a Rawhide you really want to use lying around. You pick it up and your order becomes:
1. Rawhide
2. Overture
3. Punchline
4. Tomboy

On lower difficulties you can just do whatever, but on the highest settings it pays to be prepared and think of what fights you'll want to use what Breaker, so you can plan accordingly. DMD has very few pick-ups, only 1 or 2 per stage. So I tend to think "okay, I use Ragtime until that fight, then I use its super in that fight to switch to Overture and" etc. etc.

Personally, just practice with each Breaker against each foe a bit so you are never caught with your pants down so to speak.

You can always backtrack. If I see a Rawhide I want, but not now, I tend to just pick it up and start the next fight using its super. That way you have a nice damage boost at the start of the engagement.

Dante is incredibilty fun I agree. My setup right now is Cerberus > Balrog > Rebellion > Motor. Reasoning behind this is that later-on there's a foe that you can best counter with Cerb and then punish with Balrog. And Balrog's strongest attack ends you in there, making for nice Rebellion juggles ending with Motor attacks.

Also Dante has a OHKO move against most of the bosses though, which is absolutely absurd. Works, even on DMD.

The change to Dante's sword is annoying.

Not enjoying the main game at all. The environment sucks ass, and switching characters does too. I don't like playing as V anymore. Itsuno needs to stop messing with the focus of DMC.

My goal is to just unlock Dante's full moveset and hit the Void, see if I can come up with anything interesting.

I am going to play bloody palace exclusivly with a frozen timer and infinite health. I just want to practice the combat, nero plays so good. Other than the combat, the cutscenes, enviroments, exploration are straight ass. DMC2 levels of bad. I can't believe the reboot had a better core campaign by miles.

Most of these areas I get this feeling of NEVER wanting to see again. I doubt I'll S rank this.

I really liked DMC1 and 3's level design.

Also, the concept of the tree is straight out that DBZ movie where that Saiyan plants a huge tree that grows so large it reaches above the clouds, saps the earth dry, and concentrates the energy into fruit. The final battle has the bad guy eat the fruit obviously and gets super strong. Hmmm. I refuse to believe Itsuno or whoever did the story came up with it on their own.

Nero's DT looks like a fusion of Raiden and Samanosuke's oni form.

>Bloody Palace
I'll probably do the same. It's impossible to get the hang of all Dante's stuff when his missions are on and off as well as enemies dying too fast or interrupting.

I mostly agree. DMC 1, even with it's backtracking, feels like it has a very cohesively designed environment (probably due to the Resident Evil influence). DMC 3 also has more interesting environments, but i'm enjoying the gameplay in 5 so much that I can't put it down. I'm really looking forward to the Bloody Palace update.

The game got a lot more fun for me on higher settings, especially with Nero and Dante. Playing as V has its moments, but you have to be in the mood for it, which is why I still don't like how the game forces you to play certain characters constantly.

Nero and Dante play really well, the latter especially if you setup the weapons that you want in the order that you need them. But yeah, that!

Beyond its combat though there isn't a lot. Secret Missions are again quite poor, level design is uninspired (a lot of fun hidden orb caches though which are nice to hunt for).

But to call it boring? Hm. On Devil Hunter and SoS for sure. On DMD and higher I am having a lot of fun, though enemy HP is a tad too high for my taste.
