Re: CG1 MN with Lunar *Old Vid

I don't know how I missed this vid, back in the day. I used to check all your vids for tips. As well as Bigal's, Reim's, and Balbaid's. You guys all helped me to beat MN on NGB!! AA is just soooo hard for me. There is no way I would ever be able to beat her with anything but the DS. I recall your wo...

Wow! Very nice.

It never occurred to me that you could kill that first crow using the sword to start of with a UT!

Re: What does Razor's Edge do right that NG3 didn't?

300 different moves???

I'd be surprised if I used more than 5 each for both NGB and NG2. :silly:

NG3 RE for X360/PS3 sounds promising.

Re: SoB - does it make this game too easy?

Maybe it is not as hard to pull off as it sounds......sounds pretty complicated to me. I haven't played any NG3 or NG3RE so don't know anything. Makes me think I might not have the reflexes to enjoy this game. :sob:

Re: DotF 2 (finished!) | VH run progress

There are a several scarabs that are easy to forget. At least for me they are the one after the first worm, the one in the hallway just before Paa Zuu, the one in the maze after the pyramid, and the one on your way up the stairs of the core. I think the only ones you can't go back and get are the on...

Re: Started playing this again.

Ok.....started a very hard run today. Man have I gotten rusty!! I'm at Masakado. Took me a couple tries to get Murai. I lucked out and got one nunchaku UT and one dragon sword ET into him before I put him down. I suck with the bow. Gotta dig up a small piece of tape to put on my screen to act as a t...

I'm watching the video. Pretty good player. As was previously said...He doesn't seem to know about windpathing. He uses X, X, Y, B, Y a lot which is kind of cool because I learned about that technique after I beat MN so don't use it much ( I use it more now because it is really useful in NG2). He ef...

Re: Started playing this again.

Clone Ryu is definitely challenging. When I beat him man to man I use the DS. There are a couple of his animations that leave him open to being Izuna Dropped which takes off a ton of his life. Once you get his life down to about 25% he will use Inferno ninpo on you....which you can roll through when...

Re: Started playing this again.

In hard mode you have to collect 20 scarabs for the wooden sword. In all the other difficulties you buy it from Muramasa for 500. Far as I can recall. There used to be some videos of a player kicking ass with the un upgraded wooden sword. Bout as hard as it gets in NGB. If you are a decent player ea...

:surprise: Actually, Right Trigger and Right Stick are separate. TGD is keeping Ryu in frame by moving the RS only. Using the Right Trigger to center is just really helpful when the camera gets lost or you need to get Ryu moving where you want him. I forget about the First Person View, only use it o...

Re: Started playing this again.

I agree with everything that Kazama Jim said. I never could see what people were griping about. Only time I really have problems with the camera is when Ryu is right up against the shimmery boundaries in some of the missions (Niccae and Ishtaros come to mind) I don't know if these are tips, but........

The flalils in NGB are very good. Try Flying Swallow then hit Y when Ryu hits the ground. If there is essence laying around Ryu does the flying swallow into a UT. Such a good move. The Flails are my go to weapon for the Berserkers and the Ogres!! Flails in NG2....Meh. They are Ok. The UT is cool, bu...
