Some Words on Devil May Cry 3 on Switch

In a previous blog I talked about the early Devil May Cry games, as I was playing them in preparation for Devil May Cry 3 releasing on Switch. And now it has released and I’ve had time to dig in to it and collect my thoughts, I f...

 
 
 
 

Some Words on Mirror's Edge Catalyst

After many years I finally managed to complete Mirror’s Edge Catalyst. It was an infuriating game, but nevertheless with some brief flashes of what it could have been. So much of it dragged down the experience though, getting in ...

 
 
 
 
 

First impressions of DMC3 on Switch. Style switching is very cool, Royal Guard is more forgiving than I remember it, the Agni and Rudra fight is still really good, but playing in handheld mode is a bad idea.

 
 
 
 
 

Platinum are teasing something called "Platinum 4". Sure sounds like the Capcom 5... https://twitter.com/platinumgames/status/1224271645721759747

 
 
 

Some Words on Devil May Cry 1 & 2

Devil May Cry has long been an important series to me. Or to tell the truth, DMC4 has been important to me ever since it was first released way back in 2008. While I did have some awareness of the previous games at the time, 4 was my f...

 
 
 
 

I wanted to replay El Shaddai lately, but I found that it has an awful stuttering problem any time you hit anything. I'm pretty sure it was never this bad before. Tried to fix it but nothing worked. Maybe I'll track down a PS3 copy instead.

 
 
 
 

Hyper Light Drifter is the free game on the Epic store today. One of the best indie games ever.

 
 
 

Someone made their own fan art concept for Splatoon 3, and it's insanely impressive. Ridiculous amounts of detail and lore, and art that looks like it could be official. Link in comments.


 
 
 

Looks like Square Enix is teasing something for the Nier 10th Anniversary coming soon! https://www.jp.square-enix.com/nier10th/

 
 
 

As good as MCC is, it's always been a bit disappointing it didn't keep the original dynamic menus.



 
 
 

So how many people here are picking up Halo Reach for PC when it launches next week?

 
 
 

Was that RDR video too long? How about something that's "only" two hours instead?



 
 
 

Got 4 hours to spare?



 
 
 

There was another one of those Splatoon live shows today, and KK Slider made a guest appearance at the start.



 
 
 

Finished off Assault Spy today, and it's really damn good. If you're in to this sort of game, don't let it fly under your radar. Well worth checking out.



 
 
 
 

Finished Astral Chain. A very unique and impressive game. Far from perfect, but unlike anything else, and brilliant fun when it's at its best.

 
 
 

Really enjoying Astral Chain now I've got the hang of it. Near the end now. But I'm really not a fan of how you get ranked on random gimmick objectives. Normal fights are almost always S or S+, while carrying boxes with awful gyro controls is like D-B.

 
 
 

Been having a weird time with Astral Chain. At first it was really disappointing. Confused by all the praise. But then today I unlocked some specific moves and suddenly it clicked. Can't remember any game I've turned around on so much and so quickly.

 
 
 

Anyone got any interest in Greedfall? It seems to be creating a bit of positive buzz lately, and it looks like it might be pretty cool. But it's from a dev that doesn't have a great track record.

 
 
 

I have a feeling that Death Stranding may become a licensing nightmare at some point in the future. With all the famous people in it, the rights to their likenesses will end up making the game not legally sellable at some point.

 
 


About Scrustleone of us since 2:06 PM on 04.27.2012

Hello all, I'm Scrustle. I've had a strong love for games for most of my life. The original Pokemon games and Zelda: Majora's Mask are what first got me in to gaming, but I didn't branch out much beyond that until the generation after.

Favourite genres are action adventure games in the vein of Zelda, racing games, RPGs, and action games like DMC etc., but I enjoy plenty of other genres from time to time as well.
