DmC Devil May Cry: Strong Storyline

Developed by Ninja Theory (Heavenly Sword, Enslaved), Capcom’s much anticipated DmC Devil May Cry released last week. In this version, we see the return of the iconic Dante. He knows he’s not human, but also that he isn’t anything similar to the demons that have tormented him throughout his life. Caught between the worlds, you, as Dante, must discover what it means to be the child of a demon father and a mother angel, along with your twin brother Vergil (leader of the anti-establishment group The Order).

From the beginning of DmC, the two brothers work together to stop Mundus, the demon king who controls the world through contemporary means: debt, surveillance and soft drinks. Vergil recruits Dante to help deal with Mundus, and in the process Dante uncovers the truth about his past as well as his remarkable powers. In this version, there’s a greater focus on storytelling and adventure versus the previous repetitious backtracking of Devil May Cry 4.

The story will keep you engaged. One moment you’re escaping a crumbling city, the next you’re infiltrating places where the earthly world and Limbo have collided and demons are everywhere. Dante fights each mission by default in human form, but he also has demon and angel forms. You can switch among these forms, and you only need to hold a trigger to maintain them.

DmC Devil May Cry is rated M for Mature, is available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows (digital download), and retails for $59.99. There will be additional downloadable content, which will include the untold story of Vergil. It will include four difficulty levels, a new storyline, weapons, combos, enemies and locations. It will cost $8.99 on the PlayStation network/PC or 720 Microsoft Points for the Xbox 360.

Click Chick’s App of the Week: MediaFire

There are so many cloud storage services out there, yet most of them only give you 5GB of storage for free (such as Google Drive or iCloud). Back in the day, that would be enough, but the way our needs expanded with music and video files, 5GB will not cut it. This is where MediaFire steps in: 50GB of Cloud space for free. Need I say more? A couple of drawbacks: The limit per file is 200MB, and if you stick with the free option, you’ll need to keep logging into your account, otherwise your files will be deleted.

The big news is that MediaFire just released an app on the Android Market. This app makes sure your files are always with you. You can access all your documents, photos and videos while they’re securely stored, and you can organize them from your device. The iOS version of the app has been out for some time. Both app versions are free.
