Devil May Cry is an action game developed and published by Capcom, released in 2001 for the PlayStation 2. Although it is the first game in the Devil May Cry series, the events in the game are second in the series storyline's chronological order, taking place after Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening and before Devil May Cry 2 and Devil May Cry 4. Set in modern times on the fictional Mallet Island, the story centers on the characters Dante and Trish and their quest to confront the demon lord Mundus. The story is told primarily through a mixture of cutscenes, which use the game's engine and several pre-rendered full motion videos. Devil May Cry received prominent coverage in the video game media, high overall scores from professional reviewers, and has sold more than two million copies. (more...)

SMS Moltke

The SMS Moltke was the second battlecruiser commissioned into the German Imperial Navy. The ship participated in most of the major fleet actions conducted by the German Navy during World War I. In 1919, Moltke, along with most of the High Seas Fleet, was scuttled to prevent it from falling into British hands.
