On Using Enemies as Skateboards (Day 31)
So this is an esoteric one, and as far as I know it’s only happened in the one (brilliant) game; Devil May Cry 3.
Fans of DMC will understand immediately, but newcomers may wonder how – or even why – somebody could ride an enemy around the stage like a skateboard. A bleeding, screaming, demonic skateboard.
This is what Devil May Cry is all about – style over practically or logic. The series starts with the protagonist stopping a motorbike by shooting the gravity out of it, then DMC3 begins with a younger version of that same character killing a bunch of demons with a ceiling fan.
If you haven’t played the series, you are singlehandedly to blame for all global misfortune.
Also – and I wish I didn’t have to say this so much in my adult life – but I’m sorry for the short and weird one. Long day!
What are your favourite memories of, uh, riding an enemy as a skateboard? Do you have more than one? Please let me know in the comments!
