Throat Full of Glass
Combichrist Lyrics


Beyond cruel received
The comfort in a broken heart
Now palette shades
An image after life

Alone, surrounded by a million faces
One by one
I see the judgment in your eyes

Like a disease
I'm always in the wrong
And now the numbness wearing off
Can't stand the pain

I get in line, I always do
Need to be patient while perfecting
That's the sign

I cannot help it, can't decline
It's always better down the line
I'm in the wrong and I've done it all before

And I wish I'd never been
And I know it's just a dream
Now I'm blind, I can't open my eyes

Can't stay awake, burning alive
I cannot breathe this poison air filled with lies
I cannot see what's done to me
Live in fear, the sun is falling from the sky
Can't stay awake

Nothing left to break my rivals
In a thousand pieces, million reasons
Why should I keep myself away?

Hard to define
It always is
It's hard to scream with a throat full of glass

I cannot help it, can't decline
It's always better down the line
I'm in the wrong and I've done it all before

And I wish I'd never been
And I know it's just a dream
Now I'm blind I can't open my eyes

Can't stay awake, burning alive
I cannot breathe this poison air filled with lies
I cannot see what's done to me
Live in fear, the sun is falling from the sky
Can't stay awake
Can't stay awake, burning alive
I cannot breathe this poison air filled with lies
I cannot see what's done to me
Live in fear, the sun is falling from the sky
Can't stay awake
Can't stay awake, burning alive
I cannot breathe this poison air filled with lies
I cannot see what's done to me
Live in fear, the sun is falling from the sky
Can't stay awake
Can't stay awake

I'm in under certain conditions:
1. OG Dante is to be respected
2. No color coded combat
3. Cut the dick jokes
4. Less Disney-like villains

If they stick to that, I don't mind a more serious and edgy reboot. The game had MAD potential, but they squandered it by (after keeping fans waiting so long) basically implying that our Dante is dead and this new one is supposed to be his 2.0 gritty reboot. We didn't want DMC to become a streamlined or watered down experience.

The color coding was a bad choice, psychologically speaking. Matching red weapons to red enemies seemed like the whole depth of the combat when you could actually string some sick combos together with swapping. Getting rid of styles without an adequate replacement wasn't smart either in this sense. It made the combat feel more railroaded than it actually was, and you could fix that by taking out the coloring and using foil weapons instead (axe breaks through shields and armor instead of "red on red" thinking). So it's less in what they served us and more about how they presented it, think of the WoW timer solution: more hours played=less xp earned because of penalties= bad experience, BUT more hours played=less xp because your daily xp buff ran out=good experience. It's the same system, just presented differently.

Aside from that, it felt like, if it was going to take itself so much more seriously, it would have given us a better plot than mundus being a corporate consumerism allegory, I was having flashbacks to "they live" playing this game, and that movie is before my time. The "Sleep, Consume, Obey" trope is older than Orwell and this felt like the most 2D representation of this trope that could have been produced.

The dialogue needed some real wit to it. The swearing match with the succubus... just didn't have any charm to it.

I get what they were going for with the redesign, it's a renovated rockstar personality, only less of the flashy rinestone rockstar and more of the "I smell a vodka soaked ash-tray in a damp ally after a cocain bender" rockstar. Born and raised around Seattle, I can respect the grunge lean, but the fratboy dialogue has to be redone, get creative with the vulgarity, and I never want to hear vergil mention his genitals again in my life, and get. that fedora. off his head!

But yes, I could love this dante. But he needs a redemption arc. We got past DMC2 to get the best game in the series with 3, and we'll get past these growing pains, too.

Beyond true will 
We seek the comfort in a broken heart 
Now pattern shapes 
An image of true life 
(True life) 

Alone 
Surrounded by a million faces 
One by one 
I see the judgment in their eyes 
(I see the judgment in their eyes) 

Like a disease 
I'm always in the wrong 
And now the numbness wearing off 
Can't stand the pain 
I get in line 
(I always do) 
I always do 
Need to be patient while perfecting 
That's the sign 

I cannot help it, can't decline 
It's always better down the line 
I'm in the wrong and I've done it all before 

And I wish I'd never been 
And I know it's just a dream 
Now I'm blind I can open my eyes 

Can't stay awake 
Burning alive 
I cannot breathe this poison air filled with lies 
I cannot see 
What's gone to me 
Live in fear 
The sun is falling from the sky 
Can't stay awake 

Nothing left to break 
My life is in a thousand pieces, million reasons 
Why should I keep myself away? 
(Hard to define) 
Hard to define 
(It always is) 
It always is 
It's hard to scream with a throat full of glass 
(Throat full of glass) 

I cannot help it, can't decline 
It's always better down the line 
I'm in the wrong and I've done it all before 

And I wish I'd never been 
And I know it's just a dream 
Now I'm blind I can open my eyes 

Can't stay awake 
Burning alive 
I cannot breathe this poison air filled with lies 
I cannot see 
What's gone to me 
Live in fear 
The sun is falling from the sky 
Can't stay awake 

(Can't stay awake) 

Can't stay awake 
Burning alive 
I cannot breathe this poison air filled with lies 
I cannot see 
What's gone to me 
Live in fear 
The sun is falling from the sky 
Can't stay awake

The idea of this game still has a lot of potential to me

TL;DR
They need to take The Crow as a reference for this Dante and have fun going down the rainy, grungy rockstar path.

@Niki ya the story is pretty decent. its just a fun ride of a game.

Niki

@Bob Moody I will play it, I have too just to be loyal to franchise, I have seen gameplay clips and it looks fun, I do hope storywise it picks up too, for me that's the only thing that can push me through games is wanting to know what happens next lol

Bob Moody

@Niki nero really grew on me because his demon arm was so much fun. and the red queen is awesome. but you definitely should play 5. id say its the best in the series. maybe not story wise but close and the gameplay is amazing. you get to play as nero with all his different arms, then dante has like 8 weapons or something that you can combo with on top of his 4 stances, then v where you control 3 animal things at once, then Virgil too but he's dlc. the variety you have at your disposal adds so much. and I won't spoil the what or how but nero gets alot of character development in 5 as well as V. and something pretty cool happens with nero too. its even very positive and overwhelmingly positive on steam if that tells you anything. I honestly can't recommend it enough.
