I finally managed to get around to playing DMC HD collection and so far quite enjoying revisiting DMC, the updated gothic castle graphics being quite awesome and the occasional low-res pre-rend bringng out some nostalgia and omg can't believe that looked good back then! feeelings.
I am, however, finding the static camera rather annoying as I have grown so used to manipulating the view, I feel almost nauseous sometimes xD
How is everyone else liking it?
I haven’t had much time to play through the video games in the Devil May Cry HD Collection, unfortunately. You can blame Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception for this as well as SSX, Deadly Premonition, and a slew of other video games. With that being said, I did start playing Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening in the Devil May Cry HD Collection and I very much enjoyed the experience. Here's hoping that I will return to this video game soon.
I started on DMC because I wanted the slow evolution of graphics and mechanics, and immediately fell into the trophy trap xD
I realized there was no way I was going to get the mission with the 3 Shadow Beast on my normal playthrough, and restarted on easy to do a farm run... only to find that apparently my reaction time is WAY too fast for the Scisor challenge on easy... so now taking a small cool off break before I consider how to proceed.
I hate being a completionist xD
Yeah some of the challenges are really going to get to me I think.
Also I love DMC1 and 3. DMC2 isn't as good as the others, but IMO it doesn't deserve the amount of hate it gets.
Although I think people will give DMC2 some more slack given the horrible reboot that Ninja Theory is doing. DMC2 looks amazing by comparison. LOL
Playing DMC3 again and then trying to play DMC4 again feels weird, weapon-wise.
Like, I had a good thing going with Rebellion and Agni and Rudra. Having Lucifer around kinda throws a wrench in my combos. Also, yeah. Camera is the worst thing about the game.
and, I have to admit, I never beat the first game so this is a nice excuse.
I managed to play through Devil May Cry 3: Dante’s Awakening once. I’m a little bit annoyed at the fact that this video game made me play through it on its normal difficulty the first time around but thankfully this isn’t a very long video game. I started playing on its hard difficulty setting as Vergil although I’m probably going to continue playing through it as Dante before I know it. Ever since the Special Edition version of this video game was released I have had time to become “better” at this video game as Vergil. With that being said, I love the Devil May Cry HD Collection.
I cannot wait to get this collection. I bought the 5th anniversary collection on PS2 and loved playing them. Now with my PS2 fried and missing the greatness that is Classic Dante, I really need the HD Collection.
