let's hope people cool it with the anti-press sentiment that was rampant in the last thread

Very exciting. I wish I had time to replay DMC 4 - I haven't played it since release 11 years ago, which is insane.

Just remember, everyone: the typical reviewer won't study the mechanics or know the series enough to understand how well DMC5 serves the fans. Expect mostly surface-level impressions here, like "V added some much needed variety to the DMC formula."

warning for people concerned about spoilers, when i went on to youtube this morning a recommended video was about the last boss and ending to DMC 5. I've only watched the recent trailer and nothing else DMC related. thankfully the thumbnail was not spoilery. so just a heads up. hope this game reviews well. I'm interested in jumping into the series.
