Picked up DMC3 for my PS2 this morning, and what an awesome game! Sure give your fingers a workout though. icon_surprised.gif
8 years ago
i might try and pick up DMC3 tonight...

and maybe CoD:FH too... since i think this is the price drop you recommended waiting for...

undecided about it yet though... i was given a copy of killzone last night, so my console FPS tolerence may decline rapidly...

Wow DMC3 is pretty cheap now, Ill be picking it up tomorrow.

I'm confused -- has GTA:SA been banned or what? It's definitely not at my local EB any more. It's not on the gamehead site, listed above. So what's the deal?
8 years ago
The adds were probably printed before the ban was set in place, they're the responsibility of "head office", not the stores themselves

So what do you think so far? I was thinking of buying that as it's so cheap.

^ i actually haven't tried it yet icon_smile.gif

i bought CoD: Finest Hour and DMC3 tonight... been playing CoD for a bit and while it's not perfect, it doesn't seem so bad so far...

First exam over and to celebrate I took the afternoon of to go get DMC3. Been playing it all afternoon with my mates. Awesome stuff.
8 years ago
yeah i spent the weekend mostly playing DMC3...

i'm stuck atm though

i'm in the tower, activated the elevator, and have nowhere else to go... i need to find something to open the chamber of skulls (or something like that... there are 2 pillars, the left is complete, and it says something appears to be missing from the right)

(EDIT: actually i just remembered another door i haven't opened... maybe i should go there first icon_wink.gif)

i have 3 guns (E&I, Shotty and some gun that looks like the laser pistol from Stargate... Artemis??) and 3 Devil Arms (Reb, Cerberus, and the Agni/Rudra pair) i don't actually know how many weapons are in this game...

I'm up to the strip club stage, but I haven't moved. I think I'll finish off RE4 and Killer 7 before moving on to DMC3. They all have different playing styles, which is confusing.
8 years ago
i've got past the area i was talking about... it was due to the other door i remembered at work, so that was handy icon_smile.gif

i've now fought Vergil and am a few levels after that... saying where would be too spoilerific so i'm trying to be vague...

Did you guys play through DMC1 and 2? Or at least 1?

Also, anyone know if the PAL version is easier then the USA one? You guys seem to be making progress faster then the reputation of the game suggests is possible.....
8 years ago
^ yeah i wondered that...

it's been hard-ish, but nothing too bad... maybe it's in comparison to God of War or something... i've been playing that a bit recently...

though that's not particularly hard either... (at least, not yet) it took me a few goes initially... and i got asked if i wanted easy mode... but i just needed to get my groove back icon_smile.gif

maybe i'm just 1337 icon_razz.gif

i hired DMC1 when it first came out, played it a fair bit, but didn't finish it... i borrowed DMC2 from my cousin and actually enjoyed it (though now i see why it was bagged for being awful... compared to DMC3 it is) i finished that one back to front... everything you could do, i did...

Ive finished DMC1 on Hard mode icon_biggrin.gif I dared not touch DMC2 after all the bad hype it got. But I may end up buying it after I finish the third.

I havent heard anything about the USA version being harder than the PAL version. Currently Im playing through on Normal mode and I find it even trickier than the first on hard. I really cant imagine doing Dante Must Die..

The puzzles are much trickier then the first and the bosses are much stronger (I was shocked how strong the first boss was). Im currently up to the 7th chapter I think. About Half way?

Obsolete I now have Reb, Cerberus, and the Agni/Rudra pair. Angi and Rudra are awesome hey lol

Its easy to get stuck in this game, there not so 'obvious' about pointing where you have to go next plus the controls are different than the first, arg. But overall this is already one of my fave games icon_razz.gif
8 years ago
if you mean puzzles as in the blue soul-locked rooms, i disagree... most of the puzzles like that have still been kill a particular demon to get a drop... there has so far been very few actual thinking puzzles (actually, i think i did the first one that made me think only recently... it involved mirrors and light... and even then, once i actually looked at the puzzle instead of just hitting things, it was easy...)

but yeah, the "puzzles" in terms of finding the right key to open the right door has at times been a bit odd... but even at the point i got stuck, the game actually takes you to the room you find the door in, it's just a large room and i forgot it... so that was more my fault than the game being tricksy

yeah the bosses have been tough... that first one (the one outside his store/office) was a b!tch... it took me a few goes, but once you get used to dodging and jumping it's pretty easy... good thing too, you fight 2 at once later... so far i don't think i've beaten a boss on the first go... and i've only beaten one on the second (that was Agni and Rudra... which was a fluke... basically the fire sword is hurt by ice[Cerberus] and the Air sword is hurt more by Rebellion)

Vergil is tough... i lost count after 5 attempts... but it would've been at least 8 tries... and i only barely beat him the last... (well, maybe not barely... i would've used a vital star if i'd missed my last hit)

he may have been exceptionally tough to me though because he's immune to guns... which is what i've been upgrading over h2h... simply because that is my style of playing...
8 years ago
Hey dude! I just got past Vergil and got devil mode - killed him first go without using any items icon_biggrin.gif

It took me two goes to kill the Ceberus but after that I was able to defeat the flying serpent and Agni and Rudra in one go, but the bosses are alot harder than the first like I said - I remember Neo Angelo I could beat without loosing any health!

My guns are on max now and my rebelion has level 3 stinger, but I havent got air hike yet!

With the puzzles I mean some of them are basic like you said, destroy the monster get the item but I mean how about that main hall with all the levels. It was so tricky to work out where everything goes and where you go next :S

EDIT: Vergil may have been harder if you used guns, Im currently sword styled and I was doing alot of stingers and dives when ever I could. He reflects bullets so easy!
8 years ago
^ yeah i tended to go Gunslinger style before Vergil... now i'm mixing Swordmaster into the mix a bit...

i actually killed Cerberus first go too... i forgot about that, and i also forgot that big flying worm thing... i did kill that first go too... (i actually found the worm thing really easy... and pointless)

(by first boss i meant that sythe guy that teleports around... it's outside Dante's office... i considered it a boss since his health bar came up)

and so far i've found secret levels 1, 2, 3 and 4... but i haven't passed 3 yet (you have to stay off the ground for 20 seconds... it's probably easy with Air Hike)
8 years ago
Sword style is much better for bosses, I just fully owned this crazy blue chick icon_razz.gif Ive got the electric guitar now - it can summon bats icon_smile.gif
8 years ago
cool

i was wondering if there were any more weapons...

i don't know about Sword being better for all bosses, i've never had any dramas with Guns until Vergil

guess i'll wait and see now... another boss i forgot was the Leviathan... owned him using guns...

i've never used the other styles though... (Royal Guard and Trickster)
8 years ago
I just finished the game on Normal mode icon_biggrin.gif Im telling you, for style choose quicksilver! I didnt die once after the first boss fight. Being able to slow on Vergil gives you a 'major' upper hand.
