Great Moments In Video Game Humour: Devil May Laugh His Ass Off

One could liken a video game boss fight to a pair of actors on a stage engaged in a heated argument, trading overblown barbs instead of blows. In Devil May Cry 4, Dante and Angus take that comparison and run with it.

The Devil May Cry series is known for its over-the-top action and tongue-barely-in-cheek humour, the former consistent, the latter hit-or-miss. This ultimate drama-student showdown had me rolling on the floor from the moment the first spotlight dropped til the last bit of confetti settled on the floor.

I desperately hope that Ninja Theory manages to capture the same spirit in the upcoming DMC. Without this bizarre sense of humour, it might as well be just another Devil May Cry clone.

    I have no doubt Ninja Theory are incapable of such a feat.

      +1
      Though in all honesty I have my doubts Capcom are anymore either

        If they get Hideak Itsuno back on for a DMC5 after Dragon's Dogma, there MAY be a chance! And Dragon's Dogma looks really promising. Lets hope it doesn't receive the Capcom corporate DLC shafting treatment

      I'm dunno, the recent trailer where Dante wakes up naked was pretty hilarious.

    Not bad, but needs more drama and hand gestures so I can really feel the emotion.

    You call those devil spirit fingers!? THESE ARE DEVIL SPIRIT FINGERS!

    Awww, they didn't show the continuation after the battle. This is my absolute favourite DMC4 moment and I have never been able to hear the words "And the rest is silence." without thinking of this exchange.
