    Will it be as hard as DMC3? If so, I'll end up only getting to those 2 Samurai Sword guys before dieing unmercifully.

    Yes, there's a PC release as well. Though, I don't know if it'll hit shelves day and date along with the PS3 and 360 versions.

    Yeah I don't really want DMC3 difficulty. Don't get me wrong, I like the challenge, and I did beat it, but only after trudging, not enjoying, my way through it.

    Yeah, parts of it felt like it was being difficult just to be difficult.

    I never felt like going through the game on the Vergil side because of it.
    But, I still have all my DMC games and one day I will.

    I only evey played the first one, but it ruled.

    I'm waiting for some reviews before this one. After the craphouse that was DMC2 I don't trust this series enough without seeing a few verdicts first.

    That's no choice if you ask me.
    Dante all the way.

    You know, I really don't think DMC2 was that bad.
    It is the least of the series, but it still fares better than a great number of other games.

    But, I am surprised you didn't play DMC3.
    That set my mind straight that the series was back on track.

    Smasher beat me to all my opinions. What he said.

    Demo goes up tomorrow, if you have access to it and are even slightly interested, you're doing a disservice to yourself to not try it.

    I just played the demo and I am straight excited to get the game.

    It continues to amaze me that other developers can't follow Capcom's lead from years ago and have the controls invert during a camera change if they need to.

    In other words, Nero is walking away from the camera as you hold up, but the camera angle shifts and he is now walking towards the camera. However, the player is still holding up on the controller. Move left, right or down and up resets to, well, up. :) 

    You don't get the character doing that stupid circular dance that has plagued video games since the first Playstation.

    At any rate, the demo is a blast.

    It's not explained in the controller screen, but you can charge up Nero's gun before shooting and hold the left trigger to modify the Devil Bringer.

    SLAM DUNK!

    I so wish Nero would have said "You shall not pass!" to Berial.

    as good as this game might be, i fear for me personally it will suffer from the mgs2 syndrome.

    Care to extrapolate?
    For me the MGS2 syndrome is a game where after an hour of playtime the player has spent 7 minutes playing the game and 53 minutes of watching cinemas.

    for me it was being excited about playing as snake and then being presented with raiden.

    Oh yeah, that was disappointing.
    Fortunately, Nero is not a shemale like Raiden.
