How long can you stay up there ?
haha.. thats kinda weird. do you think its intentional? also, its kind of disappointing the camera didn't follow Nero for the first few seconds he was off screen. i'm all for air combos, but that seems broken to me.
It's not broken, it's a technique called Snatch Jump Cancelling. You can jump off of an enemy in the air and it'll cancel out the previous jump thus letting you jump again. If you snatch before you land and jump off of them again, you can chain JCs. DMC4's combat is far more advanced than I've seen a lot of people giving it credit for, this is one of those things that proves that. DMC's combat is freeform, sure they have prebuilt combos but there is a lot of flexibility and freedom given to you with those combos. Games like God of War are built on flash and most (if not all) if the advanced combat techniques you'll find in DMC, you won't find in another game. You can't stray outside of what GoW wants you to do as far as combos and magic goes. The only thing that comes close to DMC's combat is Ninja Gaiden.
ah, i haven't played the demo, so i wouldn't know that. thanks for straightening that out for me.
I remember teaching Dante how to do this..
bubbles @ chuck lmao.
Man I gotta work on my techniques before the 8th, damn you work and Pixel Junk Monsters!!
Lol, I was practicing my insta rev's for hours yesterday. I wish my lady would play more pixel junk monsters with me.
That third slash in the main combo always gets me when trying to IR, I have to get the timing down for that one. One more week man!!
yup, same here. WOOT @1 week !
That was hilarious :D
It's harder then it looks to me. I been getting the hang of it but my fingers isn't fast enough like his.
(shocked)i didnt know you could do that...............sweet
Can someone please tell me the button presses for that! lol! it was funny, but still might still be usefull to do for a short while. Is he just using his devil arm and just jumping?
You use the devil bringer to bring the enemy under you then jump off of it, then bring it up with you again and jump off of it. Rinse and repeat, jumping off of enemies in air resets your jump. I can't wait to get the double jump and pull it off.
Bubble for your trouble. I'm going to go try it after work. Will this work on the demo or do i need double jump?
Works in the demo, here are some vids and links to techniques. Vid: http://www.thehandvseye.com... Jump Cancel Explanation: http://boards.gamefaqs.com/... More JCing: http://boards.gamefaqs.com/...

Seems like a glitch, didn't go much on the demo myself
It's a glitch.
Not a glitch, it's part of the advanced combat system. In fact in DMC3 there was a secret mission that required you to stay in the air for 1 min by jumping on the heads of your enemies. Touching the ground reset the timer, it's the same thing now except now you have the devil bringer which was supposed to be in DMC3 originally as part of Beowulf.
it's a glitch. sugar coating wont work. but a cool glitch indeed. reminds me of the crackdown infinite jump. I thought you could actually fly.. NOW THAT WOULD BE COOL.
It's not a glitch man, you actually have that move, if the flying corpse is near enough do grab with the devil bringer, the move is valid... Weird? Indeed... Glitch? not...
it's part of the combat which makes dmc that much more fun.
How is it sugar coating when I just said how to do it, and the fact that you have to do it in DMC3? It's an advanced combat technique, the series is full of them and this is a new one. There have been quite a few the demo doesn't even come close to mention like Instant Revving, that people have found out from being vets of the series. Just because some people go through spamming triangle and square (or Y and X) on every enemy they see doesn't mean the game doesn't have depth, they just don't know how to play.
One more time for people on Mars.
One more time for the people in the West. Quite ironic when I'm explaining why something isn't a glitch I get cursed with a triple post.
It's a glitch. As for DMC3, I remember that mission. All I did was jump in a corner continuously. As I was doing that, all the enemies came to that corner and I used them as a stool. Very easy.
so many haters around here. dmc ftw.
If it was a glitch why is it still in the game. Wouldn't they have noticed by now and taken it out of the other regions demo's? I jump off berial and stay in the air most of the fight , since if your high and behind he really can't touch you unless he goes Nuclear. Its part of the game mechanics.
It's called "demo." There's even a warning at the very beginning which states you may notice some bugs. People like to exploit stuff in games. This is no different.
hey bloody wats the bet this is still in the game by release next week? and that it never gets changed? This is the same demo they had at E3 and Tokyo game show, those kinds of bugs would be long gone by now if they hadn't intended it.
Assuming word never gets out, there's a pretty good chance of it entering the game. Had this been discovered earlier, I'm pretty sure something would have been done about it. Now that users have the demo in possession, they have all the time in the world to fiddle with the game. Top that off, if it wasn't a glitch, how would it be possible to leave the level entirely? And shouldn't the camera be following Nero closely? Ugh.
It comes out in 7 days we got this demo very close to release. If it were a glitch it would be gone by now IMO.
I still wanna know the logic of a DMC player that says it's a glitch. You can jump cancel, that's already been known and was made known in aforementioned secret mission in DMC3. Which the key to completing was jumping in a corner so the enemies would be in range, unless you were the god of Trickster. Know why? Because when they scatter you can't jump off of them. You now have the devil bringer which DUN DUN DUNNN brings demons and items to you. So using the devil bringer to bring an enemy to you then jumping off of it which to reiterate both things are already allowed (and highly suggested) in the game's combat rules results in a snatch jump cancel. This is a glitch how again? If there wasn't an innate ability in the game to jump off of enemies then the glitch argument would be valid. Using it to skip over areas in the game world that you normally would have had to go through is a glitch as well, which so far I don't think anyone has done. So it's not a glitch because for it to be so they'd have to remove the ability to pull enemies so close to you with the devil bringer to be within attacking range. They'd also have to take out the ability to jump off of enemies and jump cancelling. If that happened then the game would be broken. Wow I burned all of my bubbles, it was that bastard triple post!!
Skerj, forget about these muppets who think it's a glitch. They obviously haven't played previous DMC's to the extent some of us have. If they want to believe it's a glitch that's fine. I highly doubt they'll get the most out of the game if they can't take advantage of the controls to reach those SSS combos, whatever. As you said, there was the secret mission in no.3 that required you to stay aloft for over 60 seconds. I'm pretty sure that the original had something very similar too (But that was a LONG time ago heh) They probably think that instant Reving is a glitch too LOL
@ DMC n00bs its not a glitch , just a masterfull technique. Bubble 2 Skerj for putting up with such blatant n00bism. I found a sweet move too, You need at least 1 charge on your sword, hold lock on + direction toward enemy + sword attack , then tap rev as much as you can before getting hit , when you let go you do a fiery dash thats killer.
Is this clip from the Japanese game or the demo?
Pretty sure its from the japanese demo.
this is probly not news.... just another video.. but meh... thats cool... gonna try it out sometime Edit: hold on.... that is a no go zone till u taking down all 3 of the ice monsterz.... how did he get there in the first place ???
Minor bug stated at the beginning of the games/
Its a Jump cancel + Devil bringer grab I believe. http://youtube.com/watch?v=... <-Jump cancel tutorial If so it takes perfect timing. They make it look simple lmao.
These deniers have a point. That part of the stage is sealed off until you kill those ice demons. How he got there?
Could just be different in that regions demo, or it could be the full game I don't know. Yet I know that guy did a jump cancel + snatch technique as Skerj explained. I notice on the mini map that door to berial is blinking US demo does not do that either.
Nice touch with the bow at the end.
The people who are saying it's glitched have obviously never played a DMC game before
Never got an arial combo like that.
Dang does this ever look cheesy. Kind of like the wrap around in EA's NHL '94. Lil reference for you older gamers. Not hating or nothing i sure it requires lots of skill. Just prefer Ninja Gaiden a bit more.
If you knew how hard the move is to execute, you would not think of it as cheating.
Ok,Ive played DMC4 alot and its definitley a move its unlockable for approx 5000 soul point things. Its an ability that lets you jump off enemy's body's as if they where ground I forget what they call it. (Not an exploit) Theres also an ability called air hike which is a double jump in mid air. You have to gain points by beating the missions in order to unlock the skills and they are some of the most expensive skills to unlock.
