+++DEVIL-BRINGER ASCII ARTWORK BY ME (BASED ON THE WITCHBLADE)


=======================================================================
=======================================================================
=======================================================================


What it do, nephews! I'm back with my first walkthrough of 2008 and it 
is for DMC4! It is here (and ONLY here) where you'll find a detailed 
walkthrough of all 20 missions for Nero and Dante.


WHAT COMES BEFORE PART "B"? PAR-TAY!!!


+++For all other inquiries or for a second opinion, I suggest reading 
TheGum's DMC4 guide.

            +++   WHITE-WATER SHAFTING - THE GAMEPLAY   +++


SQUARE BUTTON:   ATTACK
TRIANGLE BUTTON: BLUE ROSE/EBONY & IVORY/COYOTE-A/PANDORA
X BUTTON:        JUMP/KICK JUMP
CIRCLE BUTTON:   DEVIL-BRINGER/SPECIAL STYLE

L1 BUTTON: DEVIL TRIGGER
R1 BUTTON: LOCK ON
L2 TRIGGER: CHARGE EXCEED GAUGE (NERO ONLY); SWITCH GUNS (DANTE ONLY)
R2 TRIGGER: CHANGE FIGHTING STYLE (DANTE ONLY)

D-PAD UP: TRICKSTER 
D-PAD DOWN: ROYAL GUARD
D-PAD LEFT: GUNSLINGER
D-PAD RIGHT: SWORDMASTER


--The EXCEED GAUGE (Nero only)
Press and hold the L2 BUTTON three times to rev up Nero's EX Gauge. For 
every three revs, one gauge lamp will light up on Nero's HUD. Rev up 
the EX Gauge up to nine times to fill up all three EX gauges. This will 
power up the Red Queen and deliver some major damage to all enemies.

Also, when timed correctly, Nero can use an Instant Rev after 
performing a combo. Press the L2 BUTTON just as Nero starts a combo and 
one gauge lamp will light up automatically. This can only be done once 
per combo, so don't think that you can light up all three lamps on one 
attack!


--SMOKIN' SICK STYLISH METER
As Nero and Dante perform combos on their enemies, the Stylish Meter 
will measure the combos and fill up the Stylish gauge. The more combos 
that they can initiate WITHOUT getting hit, the higher the meter goes. 
To increase the meter, they must perform a different combo each time or 
else the meter will start decreasing.

There are seven names per gauge: DEADLY, CARNAGE, BRUTAL, ATOMIC, 
SMOKIN', SMOKIN' STYLE and SMOKIN' SICK STYLE. Even after the meter 
disappears on the screen, the gauge does NOT reset itself, which means 
Nero can continue racking up more stylish combos until he takes damage 
(which resets the Stylish meter down by two letters).


--ORBS & SOME JUNK
The main currency of the DMC games is a thing called Orbs. There are 
SIX different Orbs to collect (some harder to get than the rest):

RED ORBS - This Orb is used to buy Items such as Vital Stars, etc.
GREEN ORBS - These fellas restore Health
WHITE ORB - This Orb restores lost Devil Trigger gauges
BLUE ORB - These babies increase your Health bar
BLUE ORB FRAGMENT - Collect four of these Orbs to complete one full Orb
PURPLE ORB - These increase your Devil Trigger gauge
GOLD ORB - These babies revive you in battle and are the rarest. 


--THE COMBAT ADJUSTICATOR
Throughout Nero and Dante's adventure, they will come across some weird 
looking statue thingie with blue or red flames. These things measure 
how much mixed combos you can make. Strike them with combos until a 
certain rank (BRUTAL, ATOMIC, SMOKIN', SMOKIN' STYLE, or SMOKIN' SICK 
STYLE) has been reached to destroy the Adjusticator. Destroying the 
Adjusticator will usually unleash Red Orbs and a Blue Orb fragment.

stand still while revving the Red Queen and will automatically do a 
Super Streak when the buttons are released.

lamps lit up and Nero will perform a Super High Roller. Press the Rev 
button again in mid-air to do an Instant Rev.
