Win! 10 Copies Of DmC Devil May Cry (Xbox 360 Or PS3). Plus: T-Shirts!

To celebrate the launch of DmC Devil May Cry, Kotaku and Capcom are giving 10 readers a console copy of the game along with a swanky DmC tee. In total, 5x 360 and 5x PS3 copies are up for grabs, so be sure to let us know which camp you're in. Here’s how to enter...

DmC Devil May Cry retains that stylish and fluid combat we know-and-love, and this retelling of Dante’s origin story is just as brutal and over-the-top. There are all-new weapons, enemies, storyline and combos. Speaking of which...

How To Enter

Simply tell us in the comments about your real life combos. Time and effort-saving habits or tricks you use throughout the day. Maybe your morning ritual sees you start the toaster with your left hand, fire up Spotify on your phone with your right hand, before taking three steps to the shower to avoid your housemate stealing your turn. What half-demon moves you got?

Good luck!


    Got a couple of good ones:

    When i was still in high school, I'd have a shower before bed and use my school uniform as pj's... then i used to set my alarm on 3 minutes before i had to walk out the door... i blame many many late nights playing resident evil for making me so damn sleep hungry...

    Also, i really wanted to finish Half-Life years ago but lacked the time... so i NOCLIP'ed Gordon Freeman's arse all the way to the end of each level :)

    Either Camp for me thanks, probably would preffer PS3 cause its more convenient and accessible... also i preffer the ps3 controller.... #blasphemy

    I like to listen to audiobooks while I drive. It's hardly my idea, but it does let me "read" a lot more books than I normally would.

    Also, XBox.

    That dreaded moment when you have a shower, and realise you that your towel isn't in the bathroom, but is in your bedroom down the hall. which would be fine, usually, except one problem... you can hear that you have guests over, and you know that in the living room there is a clear view of the hallway, and possibly your naked body.

    Firstly, you get into your cupping stance, and run towards your room, as you go passed the area where you can be seen, you do a cartwheel, followed by a triple backflip (i swear i do this all the time), land it perfectly, go to your room, grab the towel, and run back quickly to make sure you don't get the carpet wet.

    PS3 please :)

    Real life combos? My real life combos....are LITERALLY real life combos.

    You see I do this underground sport called 'tricking'. It combines martial arts, breakdancing and gymnastics into one creative form. Basically think video game fighting moves, but real life (and minus fireballs and stuff haha).

    I have a Youtube page with videos @ I haven't uploaded a video for a while (full-time work...*sigh*), but you'll be able to see what I mean.

    Unfortunately I'm nowhere near as fluid nor do I get as much air-time as Dante haha

    So what is it used for? How does it help me through the day? Obviously to fight off ninjas attacks (which happen every now and then) and enables me to get to work in the most efficient, money-saving way possible. It's also very handy when entering the King of Iron Fist Tournament, although I never seem to win against Nina.....too distracting.

    Xbox please!

    being on Kotaku, Facebook, Reddit and Memebase with my right hand and gaming with the left then switching from computer to food while still gaming. Running whilst holding weights counts as a combo I suppose and opening the fridge and pantry at the same time to see what food we have to game with. Also taking out both bins and getting the mail on the way to say a massive ammount of time is also a combo.
    Xbox please :)

    My first combo goes up, right, down+up which is up out of bed, step right to alarm, on the down movement to kill alarm raise pants and which i call half-dressed-and-awake.
    The second combo goes hold right/left BUMper tap up repeatedly, this is my morning bathroom trip while consuming my news feed on facebook or the browse-n-poop.
    The third combo is my most challenging, it's up,down,up,down, hold START,repeat. This one is tricky it's all about timing see, You've gotta go up and down the pages of reddit and the moment a boss approaches Start working until the boss vacates. I call this the lazy-employee.

    Xbox 360.

    Listening to David Lynch talk about meditation while trying to meditate while watching twin peaks while messaging a friend a link of the red room dream part in twin peaks. While eating cherry pie and drinking some damn good coffee. Xbox

    I shave and brush my teeth at the same time, listen to the weather during the shower, preparing all daily meals during breakfast (Though I should probably stop, since 3/5 times I grab the wrong things), put my shoes, jacket & watch on at the same time before heading out of the door. I get started with work while on the train and buses via tablet, and catch the news and browse websites at work, while having my breakfast (which I took for lunch).

    EDIT: PS3 preferred.

    My most badass combo is undoubtedly the 'Clean, Drain 'n' Be Entertained'... and it goes a little something like this:

    1) Wake up in the morning and start up your favourite podcast;

    2) Enter the shower of your choice (I recommend one in your own home to avoid confusion and / or litigation);

    3) Lather hair with shampoo and, without rinsing, proceed to...

    4) Brush your teeth while simultaneously having your morning wee (it's okay, all drains lead to the same place and urine is sterile);

    5) Rinse your shampoo, wash yourself, and chuckle at the antics of your favourite podcasting hosts.

    After this, I am ready to face the day.

    PS3, please!

    If I'm doing stuff in the kitchen I seem to have this technique for closing cupboards and drawers using my feet, hips or butt while the top half of me is doing whatever needs to be done on the counter.

    I'm not really aware that I'm even doing it most of the time.

    Eating a chocolate eclair with one hand and guzzling sugary Gatorade with the other whilst trail jogging through the nearby national forest.

    Cause then the calories don't count... right? >_>


    True to the spirit of the game, my combos are about timing

    Make coffee - I have a small tea room at work so with much pivoting and spinning I can make a cup of coffee in 10 secs. Slide in, open cupboard door with momentum, sling arm out and spin anti-clock wise and collect mug. Still spinning, collect teaspoon and place both on counter. With one hand pop the top off the coffee and sugar, grab them in both hands and shake the right amounts into my awaiting cup. By this time usually somebody else has entered the tea room so pivot around them with a turn and blast superhot water into my mug from the waterheater. Ignoring the burning splash to my hand, dart between the ever increasing mob to the fridge and retrieve the milk with an action resembling a serpents strike. Add a splash of milk and make for the comfy seats. Bam! 10 second coffee.

    Drop phone - More of a counter than a combo. If I time it right my old hacky sack relax can save my phone from a fall. It has its drawbacks though, if I go too early I miss and it hits the floor, if I go too late I send it flying across the carpark....


    Steam browser was the best implementation into steam. When i play Dota 2 I use the steam browser to watch youtube :)

    Match making - Youtube
    Death - Youtube
    Fountain trip - Youtube


    Driving Combo - Steering with my knees whilst I scratch myself in two places at once. The horrified shrieks of my passengers is my blood-pumping combo BGM. S-Rank if I can work eating a Big Mac into the routine.

    I can go either way but if I had to choose for this - 360 is where I'll pitch my tent.

    eating ice cream, playing games and reading kotaku while simultaneously leaving the house in a state of disrepair.

    I like to make my toast and use my hair dryer while I take my morning bath. I don't know why more people don't do this...

    PS3, please.

    I play Words with Friends while on the toilet.

    Don't look at me like that.

    Go to bed with whatever clothes you're wearing the next day. This is most effective if you work at a pyjama factory
    Eat toothpaste for breakfast. Then you've had breakfast and cleaned your teeth
    If it's raining, don't take a shower and just walk in the rain on the way to work
    Call local radio stations with fake traffic tips to discourage other people from using the same route as you
    Lastly, if you are ever running late just wind back your watch

    I've learnt to fold clothes with my feet... I can get a load or two of laundry folded while getting my game on

    Xbox :)

    Sometimes I hold my money just a bit far from the sleazy sexy bar lady at my local so she leans over a bit more so I not only pay her for booze but also satisfy my manly need for looking at excessive cleavage!

    Please send PS3 for my Devil May Cry.

    Um, I deleted my Facebook account, now I have time to work, study, to game, to socialise and to not look at dumb-arse pictures of what people had for breakfast/lunch/brunch/dinner/other and/or videos of their children doing totally unremarkable stuff. Ultimate time saving combo.

    PS3 please

    I've perfected my combo craft to the point where I can play Contra while playing Contra. I call this Contraception. For more than one reason.

    ... It's not unknown for me to wash my hair in the shower and play my DS (protected by a zip lock bag) simultaneously... I'm kind of ashamed of it.

    I've gotten good at playing Battlefield 3 - playing with a full squad and voice with just one headphone on and sneakily watching episodes of Friends or Sex in the City my missus is watching. Strangley I can still manage to help our team to the win, the ace squad ribbon and on more than one occasion grab myself an MVP too. - I'll take mine in 360 flavour please.

    The glorious combo of Coke and Raspberry together in a glass from bar or pub. Always get weird looks whenever I order, even got one guy to try it himself and think he got hooked. XD
