DVLMCR 4 for PC
« on: July 11, 2008, 09:11:31 am »
Woohoo! Finally an amazing console game series gets officially ported to PC. There is God!
I hope game producers will follow the example and slowly return to the mother of digital entertainment - TEH PC.

Now, about the game. In one word: Awesome.
In more words: Good same old formula that we know from the DVLMCR series, with some new things. Exactly what a good "sequel" needs. Amazing visuals on the DX9 version, DX10 must be a tad better. The music is awesome as always, just like the story. The only problem so far is the controls - you play with KBD only, which is a good thing, but the problem is that at times the controls freeze because the KBD can't support 4+ buttons pressed at once(unlike the PS controllers). Sometimes you need to move diagonally which means 2 directional buttons, hold a target targeted +1 button and execute a combo or attack it or jump away or whatever, so it gets jammed. People who have console-like controllers should have no problems at all.

Hunchback: Repent

I repent every day Hunchie. And every day god makes me newer, faster, smarter, sexier, and ready to sin again.

I think some USB keyboards actually support more buttons than 4 at once.
At least some old Keyboards would stop accepting more than two keys at once, which my current KB no longer does.

I'm going to guess... Devil May Cry?

I think you'll find that the standard acronym used by gamers and games journalists and even the developers for Devil May Cry 4 is DMC4.

Well, technically, it isn't an acronym but an abbreviation.  And a terrible abbreviation.  See, hunchy.  If you don't use proper labels no one will even pay attention to your thread topic.

Everyone that would care about the game, would know the abbrevation. *shrug*

Dude, I know about the game, and I thought you had collapsed on your keyboard for a second.

I just downloaded it, plugged in an old logitech controller mimicking the ps2 controller.

What awesome fun.

While I am as usual sceptical about the story, it hasnt made me hate it yet.

DMC was awezome. afterwards it went downhill :(

But playing this with a keyboard is not acceptable in my world. It's a friggin console game. meant for a controller.
Mine works like a charm :)
