Devil May Cry 3
« on: March 03, 2005, 05:28:04 PM »
I just got this game, its pretty sweet.  Its really hard though.  Leveling up your fighting styles takes a lot of time.  I think swordfighter is the best style, and gunslinger the funnest.  The guns are wussy as ever though, even after leveing them up to max they don't do much damage.  The shotgun does decent damage, but the attack rate is really low... in fact, leveling it up doesn't increase the damage, just the fire rate.  Well, if anyone else tries it out, give me some tips cause its hard. ;D

It never fails the shotgun in any game I have played so far is always a crap gun.  I just wish once that it was a great gun.  The only game that a shotgun was fun in was Conor Bad Fur Day.

The sawed-off shotgun was awesome in Hitman 2.

The auto-shotty was ok in Max Payne 2, but real men use assault rifles. And duel eagles, of course.
If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Real men use the easiest gun? What's manly about that?

I'd hate to see dueling eagles. I'm more akin to duelin' banjos'.

Real men are winners. Real men do not use weapons that take 100023423526 shots to the torso to kill an unarmoured human :(

Well there's your problem, torso boy--real men make headshots.

But real men need only do one rotation to clear a room, which is only feasibly possible with a high calibre rapid firing rifle (or boltgun, I suppose, but you don't get one of them mores the pity).

Sounds like a "real man" is a frickin lazy-butt whiner.

I'm not sure if Dante uses desert eagles or 9mm.  I managed to level up in Gunslinger, and that is supposed to increase his fire rate with guns even more.  With the handguns fully leveled up, they are somewhat okay now, if using Gunslinger.  Still, a lot of stuff will take like 100 shots to kill just with guns... of course, he can get off 100 shots pretty quick, but still... kinda weak.

In all the DMC games, you can get higher and higher diffuculty levels by beating it over and over on the higher difficulty.  So I am already scared of how hard Dante Must Die mode will be.

The shotgun rocks in Timesplitters and it's sequel. Not great from long range, but you can take someone's head off with it (literally) at closer ranges.

As for Devil May Cry 3, maybe I'll pick it up if it truly is difficult. The disappointing thing about the second one is that there was no difficulty to the game at all. What fun is that? Make it difficult, but not impossible, please. The first game rocked and rocked hard (other than the script and voice acting).
A man convinced against his will is of the same opinion still.
