|| I claimed myself
to be a DMC geek but I really started this series
only 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 I have played an action game and I
already could tell I was gonna get trashed. And
by the way, back then I didn't have my own PS2,
I borrowed my brother-in-law's. =P
So, I played the game anyway and woot! I was
stuck at mission 3, awesome ya?!? And I wasn't
just stuck. I thought that was the end of my
DMC history. Started and ended so soon. Hahaha.
Mission 3 was the first mission with a boss
battle and it was Phantom (the giant larva spider).
It took me 3 nights and 27 times to defeat him,
altho' this no longer stands as my 'highest'
record since Larxene (from Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories PS2 remake)
took over 30 times and is still undefeated (normal mode).
Hahaha! But anyway, that was how unbelievably
pathetic I was. =P I didn't even know what a
side roll was! Man.. now that I think of it
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 already obsessed with Dante =P In fact,
I never got to defeat that game until very much
later after I finally got my own PS2.
Why did I get a PS2? Mwahahaha!! 3 words and
a number - Devil May Cry 3. =D One day, that
same friend was looking at trailers at gametrailers.com
and I was there with him. The gameplay looks
cool and all but I was yet interested enough...
until one day I downloaded more trailers for
myself at home, those with the opening cutscenes
of mission 1 and 2. =) Now, after I saw those
I felt my tension rise. Seeing those trailers
made me wanna play the game right away! Some
of my online girl friends made me feel so envious
and jealous too when they told me that they're
playing the game. I wanted to play so bad but
I didn't have a PS2!!
What the hell?? So I decided to get a PS2 for
myself, with the DMC3 game of course, and that's
that. =P Played the game right away, repeating
the missions again and again cause' I was still
so bad at it it took more than 3 tries to clear
a mission. 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.... *bangs own head*
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 ya know! 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 proud and obsessed fan of Dante
there's little I won't do for him! Ohohohoho~!
That also explains why I bought and played DMC2
even though it sucks. =P Just gotta have the
entire collection ya know? =P
So I guess that's my history with the game.
Hope it's been an enjoyable read =D
