Parents should steer their younger children wide of this one. Mostly because of the epic amounts of incredibly bloody violence, and the scandalously revealing clothes that the female characters wear. It's only appropriate for older teens. Be careful of the unbelievably high level of difficulty, though. As games grow more and more player-friendly, Devil May Cry stands in stark relief, presenting monstrously punishing challenges with little thought to the player's sanity or finger tendons. Also, unless you plan on spending a fortune on replacement controllers and televisions, make sure that anyone you allow to play the game has a high tolerance for frustration.

Fans of the series will find more of the same here. Not only will you get to enjoy another helping of the punishingly hard difficulty, but Dante's story moves forward another tiny, incremental step, as the plot features yet another head demon with a personal grudge against Dante's father.

Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will be in serious trouble. Restrictive camera angles ensure that half the time enemies will be attacking from offscreen. Audio cues are the only way of telling when they're about to attack, and there's nothing visual to accompany them. On the upside, there are subtitles, so you'll be able to enjoy the deranged storytelling.

What can you say about a twenty-five-year-old girl who died?

Nothing relevant to this conversation, that's for sure! Because we're here to talk about (sorry, write and read about, respectively) GC_Danny, who's updating this profile for the first time in thirteen years!

So let's take a gander back at that time and see what's happened! In addition to writing hundreds of video game reviews, Dan produced a book that can be legally purchased by almost anyone! He also wrote two short films, two episodes of television, and two movies! Although, sadly, and through much fault of his own, the movies have yet to be released.

In addition to general game reviewing, he's also dabbled in more long-form work, writing some of the longest and most comprehensive game reviews of all time. Then there's his non-GameCritics blogging, where he's famous as the world's foremost expert on the TV show Criminal Minds, as well as the co-host of a weekly podcast - he's even working on a new videogame/critical experiment, which you can find out more about here!

If all that wasn't enough, just a few months ago he rebranded himself as 'The Hidden Object Guru', hoping to stake another claim of ultimate expertise, this time over a genre of casual games! Will he be successful? Only time will tell, but you're free to join the thrilling ride at his YouTube channel!
