| I claimed myself
to be a DMC geek but I only started this series
in the March of 2005. When I asked a friend if I
can borrow his FF10-2 game, he said no and made
me play Devil May Cry instead (the first one).
I remember going "..." cause' never
in my life have I played an action game and I
already could tell I was gonna get trashed. Back then I didn't even have my own PS2,
I simply borrowed my brother-in-law's. =P
So, I played the game anyway and woot! I was
stuck at mission 3. And I wasn't
just stuck. I thought that was the end of my
DMC history. Started and ended so soon. =P
Mission 3 was the first mission with a boss
battle and it was Phantom.
Took me 3 nights and 27 times to beat him,
altho' this no longer stands as my highest
record since Larxene (from Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories PS2 remake)
took over 30 tries and remains undefeated (normal mode).
*Sweatdrops* Anyway, it was pathetic. I didn't even know what a
side roll was! Looking back
it was so hilariously dumb.
Defeating the game itself took ever so long
too. I played and stopped too often, probably
having not enough motivation, but even so I
was considerably into Dante =P In fact,
I didn't clear that game until very much
later after I bought my own PS2 many months later.
Why did I get a PS2? 3 words and
a number - Devil May Cry 3. =D One day, that
same friend was looking at trailers at gametrailers.com
and I saw it with him. The gameplay looked
cool and all but I was yet interested enough...
until one day I downloaded more trailers for
myself at home and saw the opening cutscenes
of mission 1 and 2. =) And... I was sold.
So I got me a PS2 as well as DMC3 of course. Played the game right away, repeating
the missions over and over cause I sucked. I got owned by most of them, but
strangely enough, Vergil's first battle was
all right. =P So on and on I played the game
and finally finished it in 24 hours. Woot! Twenty
four hours! Impressively slow eh? =P Well of
course that includes the time I spent replaying
certain missions for fun, experience and/or
red orbs, but er.... *headdesks*
It was only after I completed Normal mode for
DMC3 that I continued with the first Devil May
Cry game. Since I've finished a supposedly harder
game (as reviews say, and I totally disagree
with it), I thought it'll probably be easier
for me to kick Mundus's ass...but... NO!! He
kicked MY ass! GAH! It took me at least 16
tries to defeat him. =_= That's 4x more tries
than my battle against Vergil in mission 20
of DMC3... but whatever. I finished
the game and that's it. Yay~! Not to mention
I laughed the hell out of myself when I saw
the ending. Seriously, that game's so full of
cheese, but as a humble fan of Dante
there's little I won't do for him. =D This was also why I bought and played DMC2
regardless. =P Just gotta have the
entire collection, ya? =P
This concludes my origin with the game.
