  1. I don’t think banning this is right. Loads of people have custom setups and techniques to do stuff that gives an advantage. What or who is it to determine what’s allowed or banned. If someone was using a crap stick to play you’d tell them to get a new one with better parts to help them do stuff easier/better. How about they look at something like the fact that sitting next to someone means you take a risk when you press something as the person next to you reacts to the sight and sound of your stick over playing the game.

    Oh wow! If there’s a push for multiplayer stress testing, there could be a lot going on with that side of the game. Exciting stuff! I guess there’s no indication on how to get a code?

    Just finished Simon’s Quest on the Castlevania Collection. Really enjoyed it. I know it’s considered the black sheep for being different and having crazy random clues to puzzles, in fact I remember playing it back in the day and getting nowhere, but having a few key bits of knowledge and setting out allowed me to get through relatively easily. All I really knew was what the blue and red crystals do, that there’s fake walls everywhere and that you use wooden stakes on the body parts in the castles. I think I got lucky at a couple of points but overall it’s really not that convoluted and actually a really enjoyable playthrough. Glad I played it. Edit: oh and the music is great too!

    Konami 50th Anniversary Collection

    They already released it in the CV Requiem double pack. They’re not going to put it in this set otherwise it’s a huge reason to not buy Requiem and probably cause a load of complaints.

    Looks like you’re playing Nero again at least initially. You will notice that he no longer has his demon arm but some kind of robotic arm. Pretty strong speculation points to

    That’s the beauty of this game, you can go as high as you want to take it/capable of. I won’t reach the heights of the top guys but I still love just practicing stuff and being stylish. It sounds obvious but it really is a single player fighting game. Playing through this game once is like buying Street Fighter, playing through arcade and then you’re done. That’s not what the game is about, finishing this game means nothing and is barely the beginning. It’s about understanding what’s possible and then trying to do it. When you think like this there’s literally 100s of hours to be had. I’m still messing around with Dante at the minute. I’ve started looking at how to tackle certain fights using certain styles. I found out Trickster wrecks Urizen in the 3rd meet up (Mission 17). You can use the technique the guy explains in the Trickster video a couple of pages back to indefinitely sit on him. In the first part of the fight and he can’t touch you as his melee attacks hit too low. 2nd part needs more learning as he starts using projectiles. Basically the progression is Teleport to his head, air melee, enemy step, trickster air dash away, teleport to his head, repeat. Just wrecked the SOS difficulty mission, mainly using this technique for an instant S rank.

    Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike

    For SF2 in my local arcade you would play the first round, gift the second, third (if you knew the person) you would play to near death and then stop, tie the health and time over. Play the final round. I always wondered if they took out the final round in SF3 because people did this.

    Okay, so after messing around with Royal Revenge on a Fury, I’ve totally got their number. They have a tell on how they will attack, which TBH I expected, but should have spotted a lot sooner. So I parry the first attack for the meter and Royal Revenge the next. This knocks him down at which point you can stick a charged double Kalina Anne shot right up his ass. Repeat this a 2nd time and the guy is toast. Super satisfying to destroy an enemy that at the beginning seemed like a real nightmare. Fighting a few of them is a different story though. Still need to figure out a few things for that. Finding Dante super satisfying now. Still no good with him but my mind is slowly catching up with what is possible. And when you start to go to town, you can REALLY go to town.

    Linkle Liver Story? I’m dying to have a play of the English version of this.

    Royal Revenge is explained in the Royal Guard video a couple of pages back. Basically if you press back/away and the style button in Royal Guard he will do his twirl, which will deflect the opponents attack and knock them back and out of any potential combo. Never tried it on Fury actually, that’s not a bad idea! It takes RG meter to use though (1 block) otherwise it will just fail. I was actually using it in the DMD Vergil fight as it knocks him out of his combos (but not when he’s in devil trigger)

    I’d debate that DS is all about the combat. DMC definitely IS all about the combat so allowing people to easily bypass 90% it isn’t good. The characters are so versatile it would be easy for them to avoid stuff in an open world Sekiro is more combat based with a versatile character and that has more gating. It’s enemy damage is also brutal to deliberately slow you down. You can literally cover areas in 10s, which would take ages if you had the versatility of a DS character. Great tutorial on the trickiest style, shows you a couple of loops which can help with styling.
  14. I’ve started putting my games in covers, just to give them some protection. I thought it might be nice to have a resource thread for game protectors so we have a one stop shop for all your cover needs. So far I have the following: 10mm CD covers - pack of 200, £3.99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00VM0223A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Will protect standard CDs but won’t cover thicker or double disk games. Plastic is pretty thin and they’re a super snug fit, which is cool but you have to learn to put them in otherwise you can split them trying to force it Just bought these 14 mm DVD covers - pack of 200 is £4.99 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/14mm-DVD-CASE-WRAP-PROTECTIVE-CASE-COVER-25-MICRON-DVD-CASE-WRAPPER-200-PACK/192431089232?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 nothing to say on these yet, will see when they arrive. Would like people’s thoughts on larger CD covers, NES, Famicom, Megadrive, SNES etc. As well as other options for CD and DVD. Also, options for like cart only.

    Finished DMD difficulty, Heaven and Hell and Hell and Hell unlocked at the same time. Hell and Hell is SOS difficulty/enemy layout, you can take 3 hits and there’s NO CONTINUES! That is going to be tough. When I think about something like Mission 16, which has a Fury and other enemies in the same arena as well as taking on King Cerberus and only being allowed 3 hits, it makes me cringe with fear! No wonder only 0.3% have done it according to the trophy. Started a Bloody Palace run too. Glad to see they’ve put a suspend points in, would probably take an hour to do the whole lot.

    Yea, Monster Hunter went through the roof sales wise and I think they’re similar on numerous levels. I’m sure it could work! Just read a tweet saying there was no more content for DMCV when specifically asking about Vergil as a DLC character. So he won’t be coming that way.

    Devil May Cry 5

    I don’t think you can do a fully open world for this type of game. I remember when I saw DMC for the first time I thought I was going to be exploring the castle Resi style and was put off by the mission structure. It needs to be some kind of “mission” though. You can’t play this type of game where you can just leave the fight when you want and go do something else. The focus is the fight. This is why I think the MH idea works. You drop into the “demon world” with an objective to take down demon X and you can go around the fixed environment hunting him and his cronies.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Oh wow, gutter. I guess that means (as kinda expected) it hasn’t done as well as they’d hoped. Pretty much all games do DLC these days Will there be a DMCVSE, not sure...They said development had stopped on the game, which indicates work on a Vergil playable character was either already finished or not gonna happen. Tis a massive shame. The game is really stunning, I still can’t get over how amazing some things are. I think if they ever make a DMC6 they’ve got to change the model. 20 single player missions is not what does this game justice. It needs to be open ended like Monster Hunter with a less obvious end point. Give people this fighting ability in an open ended world of demon hunting and the sky’s the limit for how much time people could put in. You don’t play DMC for the story, or to see the ending. There’s a wealth of learning to be had, which I imagine most people don’t do.

    Oh man, Mission 19 on DMD mode is sooooooo good. Just spent hours playing it, learning his move set and how to deal with things. Haven’t sat with a DMC like that since DMC3 mission 20 DMD. I used to sit and play the mission over and over and this one is the same, I finish the fight and I’m straight back in to play it again. If anything it might be a smidge too easy, although I guess it depends if you want to abuse the invincibility or Dante’s super DT (I use it to blow up his doppleganger section). There was no season pass of this game was there? I wonder what might get released....I’m guessing there’s got to be a Vergil DLC but outside of this I’m not sure.

    Coming to the end of DMD difficulty now. I’m not a massive fan of this difficulty TBH, probably due to my lack of skills. Bosses, especially in their last quarter health, literally take forever to die. I may well prefer Hell and Hell mode if the enemies die quicker. Picked up 13 Gold Orbs from playing MP levels so blew them brute forcing my way through a few DMD missions. I’m also thinking the game cheats with MP... On one mission I literally had to rank MYSELF who had been playing Dante. I had done that mission as Dante a couple of missions earlier so I wonder if it just possibly records stuff and then adds it into other people’s missions. It was definitely my gametag though. I’ve been mainly playing mission 13 for MP as puts everyone in together over 3 rooms. It could really do with a lobby type system though, I find it a bit frustrating to have another player turn up literally as everything is done. It’s happened a couple of times now.

    Devil May Cry 5

    Are you doing DMD difficulty without using Gold Orbs? I’ve used loads trying the get through so far I’ve switching between DMD stages, playing Multiplayer missions and trying to S rank Human difficulty. Basically I do a DMD mission use a couple of Gold Orbs and then try MP missions to get stylish rating from people to get my Orbs back. S ranking on Human seemed pretty straight forward, I did most on my first attempt, however mission 10 is proving to be a real problem. Must have tried it like 6-7 times now and still can’t get S. I’d borderline say it was broken. Not in a “I’ve got skills, so the game must be wrong” kinda way but more it seems completely lopsided compared to other missions. Other missions I just went through, chinned stuff and got an S but with M10 that’s not enough. You need to dissect the fights it seems in order to maximise points otherwise you’ll fail. You could say the latter is what you would expect but then that makes the other missions too easy.

    The blood spray to smoke is a Ninja skill, which you need to equip. Also you can only do it using a death blow from behind the opponent.

  24. Up to the boss of the 2nd area in Monster World IV, everyone should check it out, it’s great! Would be really good if Sega worked out a deal to get this on the MD mini, it’s too good a game to not have a Western release,
