Between this DMC stuff and the Utada KH3 song I feel like it's 2007 again.

time goes by so fast

If one was interested in doing so, what's the best way to go about it? Hunt down the original versions, emulate them, HD Collection, etc. etc. etc.

Does it make sense to play them in release order? Is there a reason to skip some of them? Should I still be aware of things / attempt to consume the game's content?

The series doesn't have a complex story and the story of each game is overall light in content.

Devil May Cry 2 is a quite underdeveloped game, specially on its bread and butter, the combat system. Hence why many fans say that you should ignore it, if you are interested in story just read a summary.

i haven't played 2 but didn't feel like i was missing any vital knowledge (but maybe that's because i don't know what i was missing). i would just play them in numbered/release order.

If you want to play them in chronological order play 3 > 1 > 4 >2 . There's also some anime and manga that can fit in that timeline as well but aren't necessary to get a feel of the setting.



I will say as big of a hater of DmC and Donte as I am , the HD remake actually retooled the gameplay a bit so that it's a bit closer to the combo and skills systems of the original games so it's a bit better gameplay wise

But ooof. If you at all care about the characters... don't play that game.

release chronology is self explanatory, but story chronology goes 3-1-4-2 (I think).

If you're planning on actually playing all of them, I would go 1-3-4 and watch a summary for 2. Or just play 3 and 4 and watch the first two. I have really fond memories of the first game, but I remember it being very difficult. I wouldn't be surprised if it felt really clunky to play by today's standards as well. I recall also trying to play the second one and it was such a downgrade from the fist.

I just ordered a Japanese copy of DmC4 Special for $55, there goes trying to save money

i want to play dmc2 because i remember looking forward to it before it was released but i never managed to get it, and i still want the experience of playing it out of a sense of completion

i was thinking about watching the anime yesterday too before hearing anything about this, maybe i have really useless psychic powers

If you have a PS3, there's a HD Collection of 1,2, and 3, and DMC4 isn't hard to find.

Only one plot important thing happens in 2, it's skippable but also quick and easy to play.

DMC has nothing to do with the others, it's a separate continuity.

Re: Trailer

I'm glad to see the old continuity back, but don't know what to make of this yet. I don't know if I like the style. I like Nero, always have (DMC4 is on my list of games played to relax/calm down, along with Metal Gear Rising and Dirge) but I don't know what to make of this yet.

immediate wishlist

Credo gets mentioned somehow.

Kyrie is alive and fine, but that trailer looks ominous.



I don't ever remember any shopkeepers.
