DMC5 sales update: the game's already sold two million copies in like two weeks! To put that in perspective, up until now the best-selling DMC game was 4, which has sold three million after eleven years. I couldn't be happier for Itsuno, Matt Walker and the whole team at Capcom, and also for myself because I get to play this glorious miracle game. What a wonderful thing.
Also, Ocelot tries to beat Dante Must Die update: OH MAN THIS IS HARD! My plan was to avoid using Gold Orbs (the item that revives you on the spot in the middle of a fight) for as long as possible, and as it turns out I reached as far as Mission 4 before I needed to use one. Right now I'm telling myself that it's only because it was a V mission, and I'm still not very good with V, and I'm going to do the rest of the game legit, but we'll see how it goes. I just finished Mission 7, which was really fun until I hit the fight with these handsome fellers:
So enemies have a lot of health on DMD, which is fair because if you use all the tools available to you in this game you can dish out a lot of damage. But that guy in the middle there? Boy oh boy does he have A. LOT. OF. HEALTH. To be honest, it's probably more that he's just really good at parrying you, and if you have the cojones to go toe to toe with him and parry him back you can get him into a vulnerable state and drop some of your heavy-hitting moves on him. But the thing is that one of his swings with that side-of-beef he calls a sword will melt about 40% of your health bar, so you don't get too many chances to miss the timing for your parry. I chickened out and resorted to hit and run tactics, which made the fight take way longer than it needed to. Oh well, something to think about for next time.
