It is a rather perfect example of "less is more." While Nero has a sharp tongue, he doesn't rely on profanity very often, so the raw language there is that much more effective.
Yeah, like he says "fucking" every so often, but it's casual and feels more real, so when he YELLS it it has meaning behind it. Vs. Donte just throwing swears around like a kid who just saw South Park for the first time.

Yea like 4 bodies?

edit: Seems its just a phase the comes out way too late, i've skipped it every single time!
WHAT THE FUCK

THIS IS SO COOL!

This is like Flexile Sentry all over again, with that awesome water mechanic that no one saw in the vanilla game because the boss dies too quickly.

Great idea to have a clip with a bunch of different breakers! Nice one.

I love Tomboy's animations. <3

Beat this last night. Awesome game! I'm glad I played through the first four in anticipation for this. Really lived up to the hype! The graphics were amazing; gameplay was fun and varied. Characters were well realized (Nero's the best!) and this was probably the best story in the series along with 3. The ONLY gripe I had was some of the story aspects in the second half of the game that I wasn't too crazy about--but overall it was great. Easy 9.5 out of 10 from me.

So beat the game finally. Incredible game I think easily takes the crown for best in the franchise but I am pretty let down by how poorly Trish and Lady were used. Shit at least for all my disappointment with Kari in Kingdom Hearts 3 she at least got to do SOMETHING.

Wanted to get through sos yesterday and ended up labbing again, when you have combo ideas you can't help but try it out and waste hours 😭. It's Friday now so hopefully can control myself can get through the higher difficulties.

One thing I'm kind of really enjoying is how much Nero says fuck and swears and nobody is saying a thing about it but when DmC was out Dante saying "fuck" was a big point of contention used to try to discredit how childish he was as a character. Where all you at now? Lol.

I think Neros sounds more natural. DmCs seemed super forced. There was literally a scene which was just Dante and the Boos saying "Fuck you" like 5 times.

This is a pretty weak gotcha since this is discussed literally on this very page. There are major differences in the way and context of DmC Dante's and Nero's swearing.

Just because they both use the same word doesn't mean they are on the same level.

Man, the game went off of a cliff halfway through for me. The second half was much less enjoyable for me.

dMc donte was this weird Dante Nero hybrid but he wasn't as cool as either.

Swearing works with Nero because his whole deal is he's a hothead. All his animations sell his aggression so it fits.

Btw his last boss one liner surprised me so much I had to pause to laugh at it. So awesome

This is what I mean? I feel like the information the game gives you with regards to style is not as good as previous DMC games. i know this probably sounds like someone who is bitter because they can't get an S rank on a mission, but it's not like I'm being given a lot of feedback as to what I'm doing wrong.
So, not sure if your still having issues, but I got S rank on mission 8. So best I can understand is the way style points work is every enemy you fight (optional or not) affects your level style bonus average. And if you choose to ignore the first clump of weak enemies at the beginning of the level and go on to S-SSS rank the first mandatory fight right after you'll get around 4K+ style bonus. If you take on the enemies in the beginning and get a weak style bonus from them (2K for around a A rank in style) you'll exit the first required fight with around 3.5K style etc. I find using exceed moves, taunting and devil arm grab attacks super useful to build style in this level, once you get the pace down you can really dominate but it might be worth avoiding some of the optional fights to keep that style average up. I went into Urizen with around 4.7K style and after an ok run against him I sailed past the S rank requirement.

And on a more general note, damn does this game feel so good when all the pieces of combat come together perfectly. I legit can't remember the last game that felt this good to play combat wise. Capcom's outdone themselves this time.

For some reason, I have not even once been given a Stylish rating by another player (and I hammer that button at the end of ever chapter). Makes me wonder if my play data isn't being shown to others for some reason. I'm on a PS4.
Happened to me too. Never got rated although I rate every time. I take this as a sign to beat the game without gold orbs.

Is anyone playing this on PC with a TCL 6 series? I can’t get HDR to turn on. Other games I’ve tested HDR works just fine.

What don’t you like about it? The levels?
The levels, the characterizations, the voice acting ( other than Nero). Incredibly uninspired level design, and once you get Dante it just wasn’t as fun for me. I thought the level design was atrocious in the final third. I still enjoyed my time with it, but I have no interest in going beyond a single play through. That notion would have shocked me after beating level 9, because up until then I loved it.

Well, I caved. I had to buy it. I loved the demo and Capcom deserves my money after RE2.

Excited to try it.

Yeah, I have that TV, but I thought DMC5 didn't support HDR.

EDIT: Never mind, just re-read what you said. I'm playing on PS4 & as far I can tell, it doesn't support HDR. Maybe PC is the same?

Just finished my SoS run. 0 orbs with Nero on last boss, but not Dante :/ I have generally a harder time with him. Btw, which attack would be more appropriate to parry the boss’ rain attack? I accidentally unleashed one of Cerberus’ charged lightning attack and it did insane damage to the boss. Thinking of shotgun, or ice age, or gunslinger double kalina, but it’s hard to experiment.
