    Another good way to deal with them is with the Hunter's Axe. Use the 2H R2 charge attack to knock them on their asses - makes them much easier to fight and dodge around if you can get space on them an...

    I really liked DmC and the re-imagined universe. Heck, I'd rather a follow up to DmC than see DMC5, though Ninja Theory has pretty much put up a billboard saying this won't happen :(That said, I boug...
