Nobody Crying Here

    - Archaic puzzles


    Devil May Cry 4 is, by the standard set by most fans, a true sequel to the original Devil May Cry. The second game in the series is often shunned, the series redeemed by the third title (though too difficult for many) as a prequel.

    The newest installment introduces a new main character by the name of Nero, who seems to be just as cocky as Dante (who remains so). Starting out, we see Nero running the game's main areas attacking demons to arrive at a gathering with his female counterpart, Kyrie. The Order of the Sword, the religious group worshipping Sparda begins their ceremony, when out of t...
