I'm Axe and you all hate me already.
Remember that I criticize the game because I want it to be as good as, and even better than the old DMC games. Any cock-talking is done out of love for the series. We can converse rationally or you can block me like some toddler did earlier. Happy days.
Dude, sorry if people have been giving you crap.

and here i though i was the only 20 yo around
My name is Jesper, I am 32, and have played DMC4, and because of that, also viewed the cut-scenes from DMC1, 2 and 3. I love every bit, I loved the epic sequences and varied bosses, both human and demonic, in DMC4, great art direction, great monsters, except maybe the more common creatures, they were more well. strange.
I have always been into computers, got my Commodore 64 when I was six or seven, then Amiga, then PC, when PS3 came out I got my first console, DMC4 thus my first DMC game, and I really liked it
Earlier I studied to be an engineer, but at the time my ambitions got to me, I studied martial arts three times a week, at the same time, did body-buildin, ran 6 k's as often as I could, did protein-shakes, etc, tried to study with the best in my class, where I did fairly well. The combined pressure of all these things, plus the results of spiritual practices, tore my spirit wide open and gave me a nervous breakdown with the best of em
When I first got sick I studied a lot of psychology, psychiatry, etc, the modern sciences, but during my martial arts time a friend introduced me to hinduism, we lived in the same dorm structure, he invited me over after practice and he showed me meditation, we ate some indian foods etc, he was a nice guy
This lead me to get into religion, now ten years past, for the first time. I got into hinduism, in particular, the Bhagavad Ghita, literally meaning 'song of the spirit' or 'song of the soul', and the book called 'Autobiography of a Yogi', by Yogananda Paramahansa, a famous religious individual from around the year 1900. He has made a huge commentary on the Bhagavad Ghita, where he breaks down each and every verse, and writes page after page about each little verse, like an expanded bible where each sentence gets thoroughly analyzed a monumental work of both logical AND spiritual 'amazing-ness', to me, at least .
Because the grand master from my martial arts was a buddhist monk, Zen, I got into buddhism, the first book I got was 'The Art of Happiness', by the Dalai Lama, but I needed more so looked online, and found out there are two directions or schools of buddhism, prinicipally, mahayana which Dalai Lama is from, and Theravada buddhism, which is direct quotes, from the Buddha. Mahayana is the thoughts of later Buddhists saints and not so much the original Buddha. As far as I understand it
This is very much like protestantism, and Catholicism, where protestantism is more new, so when I decided I wanted to attend servies, to practice my religion of a social setting, because Buddhism is difficult to find in Denmark, I decided to go with Christianity, we have many Churches, and because I got into the older form of Buddhism, I decided to go with the oldest form of Christianity I knew, Catholicism
Through all this time, in buddhism and hinduism, I studied virtue, vice, karma, conscience, happiness and pain, etc and learnt to observe, through sitting down in meditation and observing my breath, and from there, stringently observe my mind, how virtue and vice work, in a normal human mind, I HOPE, lol
Anyway, this also lead me to study Catholic history, and because I had learnt about what hinduism and buddhism considered sins, in deed, verbal and also mental, it was natural to study sin as presented by Catholicism
This has led me to study the seven deadly sins, as they apply to myself, always with a look back on my buddhist training, and has made me a somewhat autodidact expert on the where and why, of sins
Add to that, my breakdown when it was at it's very worst, made my subconscious, with all the nastiness that can reside there fully apparant to me, I have not only studied sins but struggled intensely with them, and have learnt a lot from my personal struggles about what is nice but ineffectual wish-ful thinking and what actually works and wherein the sins actually consist, in this day, and, age
That I why I joined, I felt my particular background made me someone who could contribute to this particular project whatever knowledge i have i share freely with the hopes it can lead to this game not only bein fun but of use and relief, for the human race, in toto
another way of puttin it is, like Dante Alighieri, I have walked in 'hell' and seen it, felt it, can talk about it, understand, also purgatory, and heaven, this in the terminology of 16th century Catholic christianity
I am sort of an unwilling modern Dante, who has studied these things with the obsessive interest I used to pour into sports and engineering, but also observed these things stringently with a view to findin the ultimate truth behind the problem of, what sin is, what the opposite, of sin is, and what I must be or, do to set myself free from the very real demons that time to time plague my mind
What I can offer is whatever few spiritual insights I have that are fully rooted in true reality, I am not some endless container of wisdom or answers, just know a little from prolonged, intense study, sometimes fueled by interest, sometimes by the terror of succumbing, to sin, which I view as a great horror, to me personally
Hell doth quicken the spirit- towards salvation
^ story of my life ....
allow me to suggest you to try dmc3 special edition on pc. Dmc4 almost destroyed the best things dmc3 s.e. brought to us:/
welcome to the forums btw;]
My name is Sebastian, i am 19 years old, turning 20 in December and I am one of the wholehearted supporters of the new creation by Ninja Theory. I look forward to the game very much and even though i already was blocked for the past 3 days, i still look forward to argue and discuss about the changes the developers have in mind. Thanks for having me.
