Spawn Point: a guide to spectacle fighters

Welcome back to Spawn Point, where we take something wonderful from the world of gaming and explain what it is, why it’s worth your time and how to get involved. This time, we look at “Spectacle Fighters”, or “Character Action Games” if you like your genre names vague and uselessly ambiguous. What’s so spectacular about these fighters, then? It’s Spectacle Fighters, a genre of mostly…

Feature: Devil may wail on the guitar

Overthinking Games: Devil May Cry 5 and its tangle of heavy metal influences

Devil May Cry 5 is, like the entire Devil May Cry series, cool. But it’s a particular kind of cool – loud, dark and fascinated with the occult and forbidden. It’s a mish mash of all the things you thought were edgy when you were a teen: explosions, pizza, guitars, leather, hair, more guitars, a big sword. So when we’re looking for an artistic genre,…

Devil May Cry 5’s Bloody Palace is open for (bloody) business

If fighting through hordes of endless demons committed to sucking life from your soul sounds fun, I bet you're loving this Monday morning of corporate April fool's japes. Refuge can be found in Devil May Cry 5's Bloody Palace, where you also fight through hordes of endless demons, but also have motorcycle swords or robo-arms that fire ridable rockets. It's a free mode that launched…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC continues to be a bit of a mess these days, but provided you haven't been put off by the astronomical prices of the [block id="604469" title="Best gaming monitor"]s for HDR or, indeed, the ongoing debacle surrounding Windows 10 support for it, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get an HDR compatible graphics card. Below, you'll find a…

Feature: I'm very tired

Steam Charts: Extremely Jet Lagged Edition

John had the presence of mind to take today off, after flying back from San Francisco on Sunday. Young Matt and I got a red eye that took off on Friday night and landed on Saturday afternoon. I didn’t sleep for 30 hours, then slept for 12, was wired for the next 16, and then slept for another four. Which brings us to today, when…

Steam Charts: Devil May Die Twice

Oh hello! John is away in San Francisco gobbling up gum left on the underside of chairs at the Game Developers Conference, so I'm filling in for our regular rundown of last week's top-selling games on Steam. As is customary for weeks where I need to take over, the charts are full of the surprises he grumbles they never have. What can I say, John…

Devil May Cry 5 returns to the Bloody Palace on April 1st

Over the weekend, I finished my first run through Devil May Cry 5's wild and self-indulgent story. I've still yet to master its complex combat, so I'm eager to return to the Bloody Palace, the arena challenge mode from every DMC since the first. While not quite ready in time for launch, Capcom announced today it'll be rolling out as a free update on April…

Dante’s motorcycle crimes: Devil May Cry 5 released

Motorbikes become deadly weapons in Devil May Cry 5, and not in the usual way. Capcom's return to their mega-murdersome hack 'n' slash sees our lad Dante not only running over demons with his motorbike but picking it up to whack 'em over the head. That's the sort of rockin' wackiness you can now partake in, as DMC5 launched today in the wee hours.

Feature: Listen now and then brag about it

Podcast: Our proudest gaming achievements

 Life is hard and so are videogames. So when you do a tough thing, take pride. It doesn’t matter if it seems like a small step for other people, if it’s a big step for you, go ahead and puff your chest out. But do it quickly, for heaven’s sake. We’ve only got an hour. This is the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show,…

Feature: Do no arm

Devil May Cry 5 review

There is a demon, and I'm going to kill it. With style. I'll shoot and slash and somersault, chaining together increasingly outlandish combos while listening to electro-metal where I only catch the odd word like 'sword' or 'death'. Every part of this will feel a little bit magical, and I say that as someone who usually listens to hippies sing about flawed modern power structures…

Devil May Cry 5’s live-action placeholder cutscenes are grand

The 'Deluxe Edition' of games are usually skippable, charging an extra £10 for a handful of PDFs and MP3s and JPGs plus maybe a balance-breaking item or two. Not so with Devil May Cry 5, where your tenner will buy you the usual guff AND very special alternate cutscenes: the live-action "pre-viz" videos made with toys and cardboard props and people in scrappy costumes. These…

Feature: It's coming apart at the seams

Steam Charts: Pretty Broken Edition

I'm nothing if not a hypocrite. Week after week I lament you utterly awful people buying the exact same five games again and again and again and again and again and again and again. This week I shall lament people buying games that barely even exist. Hold my hand, let me walk you through this most peculiar of weeks, and into oncoming traffic.

Devil May Cry 5 director could have made Dragon’s Dogma 2 instead

Now that Devil May Cry 5 is almost here, director Hideaki Itsuno has revealed he could have been making a very different sequel instead: a follow-up to Dragon's Dogma. Capcom's 2012 fantasy RPG, which came to PC in 2016, is a game I've heard people gush about in the same way I do Deadly Premonition, though I'm sorry to say my response has been the…

Devil May Cry 5 features demon hunters old and new in a new trailer

The gang's all here, minus Dante's trouble-making brother Vergil. Capcom had a fresh trailer for their upcoming demon-blatting hack n' slasher Devil May Cry 5 for the Tokyo Game Show, and this one's a bit more heavy on the in-game action. While DMC4's returning hero Nero is set to play the lead role again, original devil hunter Dante is back with his sidekicks in tow. Check…

Devil May Cry 5 embraces its own campness and revs up to launch in March

It's so very good that Devil May Cry 5 is aware of just how daft it is. Unveiled to great surprise at E3 back in June, Capcom have been demoing their hack n' slasher revival at Gamescom. As well as giving us a firm March 8th release date for next year, Capcom also dropped a new trailer, and it's leaning all the way into the…
