Watch This Guy Laugh In The Face Of DmC’s Highest Difficulty

Kotaku: Insert obligatory opening sentence about how some people are upset about how DmC is easier than its predecessors. And, sure, that may well be the case—I'm no Devil May Cry expert, and I also haven't tried DmC on anything beyond its third-hardest "Nephilim" setting.

That means I haven't tried the by-all-accounts very tough "Son of Sparda" difficulty, nor have I tried "Dante Must Die," a mode that can only be unlocked by beating the game on Son of Sparda. Up top, we've got SteeleSerpent taking down the game's fourth level on Dante Must Die difficulty without taking a single hit, while earning an SSS rating. (DmC: Devil May Cry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

This guy has some skill...
Army_of_Darkness  +   734d ago
The dude definitely has been practicing.
crxss  +   733d ago
Can't imagine someone breezing through the final parts of the game on the hardest difficulty with an SSS. Hope someone posts a video of that.
Septic  +   733d ago
He must have practiced a lot. Well I'm hoping he did.....if he didn't and he plays that good....let's just be glad then that there's no multiplayer mode.
iChii  +   733d ago
I just hope this dude doesn't get a change of heart and ends up in God of War Ascension's multiplayer. If he does, we're screwed.
MEsoJD  +   734d ago
Yeah, I just got the pc version and been having a hell of a time learning the new controls... Also while I like most of the game, I must say that they totally fucked Devil-Trigger...
Tony-Red-Grave  +   733d ago
i don't think they wanted to F up DT seems more lika a plot device. If they keep to the lore then the DLC will have vergil fully unlocking his first.

can not believe people actually disagreed with this comment, sheesh even my 2 year old has the ability to admit when he is wrong......

Probably because people believe that, compared to previous games, this isn't a real display of skill, but a display of the game being too easy.

... which is one of the many things detractors complain about.
largerock  +   733d ago
Skills for a game that requires no skills.
csreynolds  +   731d ago
Well, we can't all be DMC 'pros' now, can we?

I presume you'll be uploading a video of you playing DMC [insert number 1 - 4 here], evidencing true skill, to reinforce your point, yes? Huh? What do you mean "No"? Oh, I get it; you're trolling on a game that has many trolls...

Sorry, my bad.

everyone laughs in the face of DmC's everything.
Hudahudahuda  +   734d ago
That looked fun actually.
Panthers  +   734d ago
The game is really good if you havent tried it. People are just too focused on aspects other than gameplay. Too bad. If this had been under any other name than DMC it would have been an instant hit.
Knight_Crawler  +   734d ago
Its fun and you should try the demo if you are still on the ense but be warned the game has been heavly tailord for the casuals and the one button easy combos hold your hnads too much in the game.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   733d ago
i wouldn't go as far as 1 button easy. the combos are simpler but by no means one button easy.
TronEOL  +   733d ago
What are you talking about? I doubt most of the people bitching about DmC could do any of what's seen in this video without LOTS of practice. Just like old Devil May Cry (and most hack and slash) games.

DmC CAN be played mashing buttons (just like how I finished DMC1-4 when first playing them, mind you I struggled) but when playing harder difficulties, you NEED to actually play it. DmC turned out fantastic. Get over it.
Big_Mex  +   734d ago
Really digging the game so far, definitely one of the better action games I've played since Ninja Gaiden Black.
AdmiralSnake  +   734d ago
This person is clearly a really good player.
the_eddster  +   734d ago
Aint exactly the hardest difficulty though... *coughhellorhell*
OmegaSlayer  +   734d ago
Enemy waves composition, health, aggro doesn't change between Dante Must Die, Heaven or Hell or Hell or Hell.
What changes is the on hit=death condition.
As you see, this guy doesn't get hit, so...it's the same.
The guy has skills but this DmC unfortunately limits player a bit with few combos and few weapons.
Good videos nonetheless.
Eamon  +   734d ago
The aggro doesn't change mainly because you play as one character. However the enemies look slow and easy.
srusli  +   734d ago
Mad skills gan ..... mad skills
Mocat  +   734d ago
dude can't even jump cancel properly,
wishingW3L  +   734d ago
is not that it isn't properly done is just that the cancels were badly implemented. They were put in the game by fan request almost at the end of the development of the game and that's why they are so useless and tacky.
VileAndVicious  +   734d ago
I think the cancels were implemented fine. The game just needs a bit more variety as its mostly similar to the original DMC without styles being included in the game.

But this is an example of someone whos pretty beast at DmC.

wishingW3L  +   734d ago
lol at the people thinking that's skillful gameplay. These DMC scrubs really have no idea what they are talking about.

The player doesn't even does many cancels, all he does is use the broken damage boost of the demon dodge. =/

This is skillfull gameplay: https://www.youtube.com/wat... Especially the Royal Guard Cancels and Distorted Combos.

Exactly. I just didn't want to sound like a prick by saying it. ;) Thank you for taking the bullet.

DMC is a game that demands learning the combos, like the rest of the games in the series. The demon dodge is nice, but they really should scale it back a bit.
Tony-Red-Grave  +   733d ago
demon dodge is like royal guard.... they shouldn't be in the game period.

than again i hate JCing so i'm pretty biased
csreynolds  +   730d ago
I didn't realise I wasn't allowed to praise someone for something I think is impressive without having specialist knowledge on the subject. Do you have any idea how arrogant your opening two sentences make you sound? Next you'll be telling me I can't appreciate the beauty in a car's aesthetics without having a meticulous understanding of its assembly...

Incidentally, the Royal Guard video you've linked is very impressive, but your condescension has cost you a bubble.

I suck ( average player really ) at this kind of games and got SSS combos fairly easily in the demo.

This guy does some cool moves but that´s it.

WeAreLegion  +   734d ago
You won't get SSS combos in the full game that easily. It was a bug that made it into the demo, but trust me. They are much harder to attain in the full version.
The_Devil_Hunter  +   733d ago
I have played the full game and yes its actually as easy to get SSS. Demon dodge, triangle, triangle, puase, traingle = SSSensational. Which sucks really because their is really no skill involved. That can easily be fixed with a patch.
thaking155  +   733d ago
@ :36...

So hard that after he Demon Dodged and Stingered the first guy it went instantly to SS up to a full SSS. Yeah much harder in the fulll game... (Roll Eyes)

WeAreLegion  +   733d ago
I'm trying that exact combo RIGHT NOW and it's not getting me anywhere close to SS.
thaking155  +   732d ago
Ummmm OKAY! Cool man, Demon Dodge and going into hitting an enemy automatically puts you at a high A or S Rank.
elda  +   733d ago
I love DMC including DmC & after all these years I just got into the fact that combos are a big part of the gameplay,I was just enjoying the fact of just tearing things up like a normal H & S game,I'm on mission 10 & started over again & after seeing this video my scoring is better & combos are Sick to pull off but this person playing in this video is GOOD!
Firefwy  +   733d ago
"That's rad."

There are sub bosses on Ninja Gaiden 2 that make DMC5 bosses look like regular enemies.
