Re: So Black Is The Best of the Two; However....

Oh, so the horsemen are harder due to the lack of manually charged UT's?

Re: So Black Is The Best of the Two; However....

I actually still prefer the original for a lot of things. Sure Black is by definition the better game, but that doesn't make it more fun to me. Hitman 2017 is the best in the series, but I like Contracts better. Splinter Cell 3 is the best, but I prefer the original. What I like more about NGO: 1) ...

So Black Is The Best of the Two; However....

We all know Black is the best of the original two. NGO was an unbelievably fun and challenging game rendered nearly obsolete by Black, what with all of the additions and fixes. However, there are a few things that are better about the original. For me, new game plus and the Intercept move are two of...

Re: Okay is this worth continuing?

I ended up pushing on. Might as well see how the rest of the game plays out. I agree with those saying the combat is the highlight; even though they also fucked that aspect of the game up (imo) it's still working off the Ninja Gaiden template thus making it inherently fun/engrossing. Back to fightin...

Okay is this worth continuing?

I'm playing NG3:RE after several years of ignoring it due to trying and HATING (so much, oh so much) the vanilla NG3 and I'm at the infamous and unbelievably retarded dino boss and I am just wondering if this is worth the effort? This game so far is just long, overly drawn out gauntlet style battle ...

Re: Describe your first experience with this game

My first experience with modern NG was playing the OXM demo for NGO in early 2004 (11 years ago now.....crazy). I had been waiting with bated breath to get my hands on that demo as Ninja Gaiden had been my favourite game series since the NES days and the day it was released I drove all around town t...

What Would You Like To See Happen With Ninja Gaiden?

Realistically, I think maybe the new team ninja might be able to pull off a good reboot or sequel (I guess) if they just took their time, listened to the older fans and revisited the older games for inspiration. And maybe they could make a new 2D downloadable/handheld entry that wasn't total ass. Id...

Hey man, great job! If I could only offer a single critique it's that you took the coward's way out with taking that very last greater elixir :P I kid of course, but I did cringe a bit when I saw you use it. I, as do many of us here, have an aversion to using healing items in these games unless it i...

Re: Ninja Gaiden Black Redux- Your Ideas

Just a thought: it woul'd be cool if you could disable UT's via menu I wouldn't mind that. A cheat / options menu that modified different stuff, something like the skulls in Halo games, I suppose, could be very cool in an NG game. If they spent enough time working on it, they could even be incorpor...

Re: Demo?

It's better but I still hate the fact that fights are long gauntlets, throws are way OP and enemy health is far too high. Also, input lag is still present (much reduced, but present) and you lose upgrades when you die. I beat both Chapters and stopped for now. Not sure if I want to keep playing it o...

Re: NG3 Razor's Edge Wii U Thread

Case in point ^ this post. The major problem is that gamers for indepth games nowadays simply understand the games they play much more so than the developers who make them.

Re:

I am not convinced at all from reading both reviews. How is it that IGN's review praises the game, while destructoid's basically trashes it.. I'm not sold at all. If they didn't improve auto targetting and all of the core mechanics problems that I heard about, I don't want this crap on 360. :p Stil...

Re: NG3 Razor's Edge Wii U Thread

Agreed. The core of NG3's design outside of combat is so far removed from what makes the first game great (and the second as well, to a lesser extent) that it needs a lot more of a redesign to make these changes really worthwhile.
