The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

They'd previously talked about how the Devil Breakers can be destroyed by enemies, but I am slightly surprised how many ways you have to deliberately break them for effects.

Looks like Nero has a total of eight (two sets of four) to start with, and there's probably going to be more types and capacity upgrades.

 

Still, this is the first combat resource that can really be depleted that I can recall in the series.  Sure, some attacks deplete meters, but those could be refilled just by fighting.  Breaker drops look to be generous, but they still depend on item drops.  It's an interesting change, although I'm not sure how fun it'll be.  If nothing else, it'll encourage players to run through all the types rather than relying on just one.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

We can apparently buy more from Nico's shop mid-mission (that's what calling her on the phone is for), but it's not in the demo. Not that I'm disagreeing; how exactly they balance the Devil Breaker's "resource management" aspect will be very important.

The Breaker drops in the gameplay demo seemed pretty placeholder-y, liberally sprinkled throughout the level so you wouldn't have to worry about managing them too much.  I don't think they'll just be lying on the ground randomly in the final game.

 

Dante's new bike looks cool.  At least, now he doesn't have to borrow (and destroy) Lady's bike.  Twin buzzsaw swords!

Actually they will be lying on the ground randomly in the final game, I just imagine not as frequently as we saw in the demo. The director talked about it in an interview not long after e3.

 

Can you tell us about Nero's new prosthetic arm?

 

Okabe: The "Devil Breaker", the prosthetic arm created by Nico, will change the game drastically. Devil Breaker has some slots for cartridges, and you can carry them when the mission begins. They are very powerful, but fragile. You have to dodge enemy attacks or they will break very easily, so you need to put a new cartridge when one breaks. There are some cartridges placed in each level, and you can also buy them from Nico who will arrive in a van. The arm is one of Nero's core mechanics in this game.

I meant more like they wouldn't just be there for no reason, but placed like most DMC powerups, in breakables and such.

 

From what I can tell, though, even if you're a bit careless with your Breaker usage, you won't be left completely in the deep end.  It looks like the Whip Arm is the back-up weapon, its reel serving as the attachment point for all the other Breakers.

The official site's descriptions are so bombastic I felt they needed to be shared.

 

 

Devil Breaker

New power for a broken hunter

 

A weaponized prosthetic arm made by Nico to replace Nero's missing limb.
High output performance makes them break easily, so Nero usually carries multiple Devil Breakers into battle, swapping out broken arms for new ones.
The base of the Devil Breaker contains the Wire Snatch ability, which pulls smaller foes to him or sends him rocketing towards larger targets, living or otherwise.

 

---

Overture

Iconic demon shocker

 

The first Devil Breaker built by Nico.
An orthodox weapon compared to the other arms, damaging enemies with electric bursts. Its name is derived from this straightforward functionality.
The first Devil Breaker available in the game, this arm is easy for starting players to use.

 

---

Gerbera

Obliterating recoil laser

 

A Devil Breaker that launches shockwaves from its petal-shaped complex reverberatory furnace. The recoil can be used for instantaneous movement, and converging the shockwaves makes it fire a high-output energy beam. Beautiful design belies tremendous firepower.

 

---

Ragtime

Versatile time stopper

 

This arm was crafted from special materials obtained from a powerful foe.
Creates special force fields that warp and slow the flow of time for all within them.
Convenient for taking on multiple foes at once, the utility of this Devil Breaker varies based on your play style.

 

---

Punch Line

Flying haymaker

 

Rare demonic minerals give this Devil Breaker jet propulsion power, packing incredible destructive force behind each blow. The arm can detach to fly around autonomously, during which Nero can ride it. Slam into demons in this mode for even more damage.

 

---

Buster Arm

Replicated Devil Bringer

 

Nico tried to recreate Nero's lost demonic arm, resulting in a powerhouse capable of throwing enemies with devastating force. This brute strength comes at the price of reduced durability, but the chance to toss around massive demons is well worth it.

So Neros lost his Devil Arm? I'm guessing that means he's lost Yamato too.

This is an interesting dynamic. I hope the story is crazy enough to live up to this.

Yeah, if you go back to the e3 trailer there's a sequence near the end where we see a "mysterious" figure tear the Devil Bringer off.

 

Nero can wear his hood, and the classic revving taunt now fills an Exceed bar:

I'm not sure how I feel about Nero losing the 'easy and fun' gameplay to Dante's 'difficult but ultimately satisfying'. Maybe V will take up Nero's old role?

I mean, it's more that Nero gets torn off the Devil Bringer, mysterious-hooded-stranger-who's-totally-Vergil holds onto the arm and pushes Nero away.

I'm a little TORN (sorry) about Nero losing his devil arm. I do like what I see with the Devil Breakers, but not really a fan of them being limited use. I kinda feel I'd want to find a way to just have one permanently and be done with it. I'm sure when I actually get to play the game though, I'll likely come around.

 

I'm really curious as to what's happened to Kyrie.

 

And look, I'm sorry but from what little I've seen of her, I really do NOT like this Nico girl. >_>


It's a secret to everybody

We've had confirmation that this comes after DMC2, which continues the trend of no two games in the series being next to each other in the timeline. Hopefully this also means that we'll see Lucia at some point too, she's the only playable character that was left out of 4SE.

Of note they show off most of the functions of the Tomboy ("Exceed Arm" in pic before), Helter Skelter ("Drill Arm"), and the Rawhide ("Whip Arm") Devil Breakers. Punch Line and Ragtime also get some proper gameplay showing, so we get a better idea of exactly how they work.

Someone who has most certainly violated an NDA of some sort has been sharing pics and footage from a playtest copy of the game. If you're the sort that wants to avoid spoilers I'd tread very carefully, as they're popping up all over.
