According to Genesis (that's part of the bible, by the way) the Nephalim were the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men," but DmC: Devil May Cry simplifies it a bit. In DmC the Nephalim are stylish dudes who are the children of an angel/demon pairing, which gives them the ability to kill demon kings. Welcome to DmC: Devil May Cry, which releases today, where you take on the role of Dante and likely have to kill a demon king.
DmC's launch trailer shows a more serious side of the game than we've really seem up until now, likely so gamers take the one-word review quotes seriously. Who wants their site's review quote shown over footage of Dante and a giant sack of puke telling each other "F*** you!" There's also a healthy amount of focus placed on the arsenal of sharp and very large weapons Dante has at his beck and call.
No argument here, Devil May Cry looks good. Don't listen to me though, after all Lydia's full DmC: Devil May Cry review was put up yesterday. You should probably check that out if you're interested in the action game. Or, you know, just check out the trailer, which is pretty complimentary. Or whatever! Video games! DmC: Devil May Cry is now available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with the PC version to launch in 10 days time.
