Re: Essence Guide - Very much work in progress.

Re: Kitetsu wrecking Awakened Alma

I wish it too. I remember NG04 having New Game Plus and being all hyped up for a Kitetsu run there (since it drains HP there), only to realise it only carries over Essence... I actually made that mistake today, played through all of NG04, Very Hard, OLB, no Ninpo, not upgrading wooden sword, all to...

Has anybody asked him why he hasn't made videos of his high score runs since he's made other videos? If not, I'll do it. EDIT: Nevermind. I see that he has the comment section turned off. How convenient..... not only that, on twitch he has follower chat only after 3 months, and his stream is giving...

Re: Obscure Mechanics

Hey Farnham, are you familiar with the X->Y demon cutter? I noticed you didn't include it in your list of cutters. I guess it probably looks like it should be the same move as X hold Y but it is actually its own distinct move. iirc I didn't talk about X hold Y in my original post because I haven't ...

Re: Ninja Gaiden 2 Anniversary Edition

Getting IS to tag Zed is rarer than rocking horse shit IIRC. I know I managed it once or twice when doing no melee runs years ago but couldn't ever do it with anything like regularity. haha... yep, sadly you are right, i cant do it anymore lol... but i found a semi consistent way of damaging him in...

its not an auto shield, its rng if u hit him in air with ninpo or not. i feel like the IS can only stick during some animations and not in general as well... just like with genshin

Re: Item Location Guide - Still testing some things.

oooohhh this is beginning to look REALLY nice... one quick thing i noticed: chest 2 in CH 14 is not grains, its fish/yellow... (i assume this is the chest at the save in front of the big black door) other than that, damn d_Nought, nice work!

Re: Item Location Guide - Still testing some things.

its been ages since i last played lower difficulties, but i can say that most (if not all) of the fish/bat chests are different, the one before the lunar in ch 1 is red orbs f.e. or the first chest in 13 near the door at the save spot is also red orbs on lower diff... about the less LotG, if u could...

i got a neat Kusarigama insta-kill grapple (Demon Cutter): using DC on an enemy who is in a downed state (laying or kneeling) Ryu straight up cuts off his head. Usage: ever missed Guillotine Throw and did that X in air swipe move? well that downs all ninja it touches, so if it hits, follow up with D...

I have been working on a tutorial series for this game for a long time now. It is very much a work in progress and i intend to expend upon it as time goes by. I tried to concentrate on important basics first, but some in depth stuff is already there too. This is intended for new players as well as e...

Re: In search of Ultraviol3nt ToV1 DS vid

yeah the thing is, if u keep em off screen they will leave u alone and only one of them usually teleports into ur view... BUT, if they are on screen for only a split second, they WILL start chanting, and that attack will be finished... also, if mages are around and u dodge jump away in one direction...

Re: Master Ninja - DS only, no UT, no Ninpo, no Healing, no Izuna Drop, no Fun

imo its totally random... standing there and holding block increases the chance of a grab as far as i can tell.... the best solution to this that i found is always roll once if u get attacked to dodge a potential grab, and if it is not a grab, counter the 3rd to 4th hit... and ofc avoid all attacks ...
