Re: Trouble with Stadium challenge (Hard)

i suppose if you dont care about score, you can just go straight into the elevator and goto the underwater shop. the fight will respawn without a timer or score.

Re: Trouble with Stadium challenge (Hard)

you cant go to the shop anymore if you did the stair way challenge already if you are playing for score. I dont recommend guard cancelling since their overhead and side clubs do block damage. You have to learn the timings to dodge their attacks and charge when you can. From my chp 15 MC hard karma r...

Re: Hard Karma Run

Finally done with this run. I could not believe I got 25.5mil. Thought it was hopeless after I finished chapter 17 but I got a lot of extra points in chp 18. Also I miscalculated chp 5 score. I hope I don't have to touch this game again. Immensely hate interact mapped to B, and the lower drop rates ...

Re: Hard Karma Run

chp 15 done. I am not happy because I had to go back to the shop after the staircase fight which added a lot of time. Score is lower since I saved the monastery annex fiend soldier fight for chp 16. I do predict that I will finish chp 16 at 34 minutes, which would make this run on pace for 6h 50m li...

Re: NGS Story Mode Karma Run Leaderboards

Wow tomii is playing this game again. Seems like a shame with no vid since it seems he deleted his channel.

Definitely keep the leaderboard for MC separate from PS3 NGS because of equipment.

Re: Smoke bomb guide for charging UTs.

I dunno how applicable this will be but on the 2nd to last fight in chapter 13, i tried to XY cats after bomb jump then roll bomb (needed roll to cover distance) but they seemed to evade the XY consistently. On the other hand, i could scoop them up if I only did a bomb into XY.

Re: NGS story mode karma leaderboards

Hi, Chapter 17 time limit is brutal. When I did my Hard Karma run years ago, I barely made the hard time limit of 13 min. Only having 12 minutes in normal is insane. my run below. https://youtu.be/CmiwS4RV2Js Follow the path in the video and try to figure out where you can save more time. It is impo...

Re: Hard Karma Run

Done with chapter 12. I did figure out a good strategy of getting UTs from the Dabi clone with the incendiary shuriken. This run is now about 1m and 30 sec faster than old run so I don't think game time will be an issue.

Re: Smoke bomb guide for charging UTs.

Soldiers in chapter 10-11: Smoke bomb then jump OL Y works for rifle soldiers. If you are doing bomb Y charge, I highly recommend doing roll bomb Y for extra iframes since I found that sometimes, a bullet can interrupt beginning of your charge if you are just using bomb. Smoke bombs if done right do...

Re: My karma run update thread

Hey congrats. About sigma did you get the MC version? if so which system? Could you add the scores on the forum as well since leaderboards are separate for each system? If you have the PC version, you could record gameplay with OBS if you want to hold off on a capture card.

Re: Ninja Gaiden Deckbuilding Roguelite

ok I don't think this game represents NG at all. It's like some version where enemies move 10 times slower. Game gets too easy since you can just move to an enemy, combo, cancel recovery with throwing star nearest enemy not being comboed, then continue your combo, repeat Radical idea: Enemies move t...

Re: Smoke bomb guide for charging UTs.

On the altar hall fight: If you just killed a cat fiend only with a UT, you should roll jump then roll bomb jump in a different direction. First of all, you don't want to stand still after your UT is done, enemies are noticeably more aggressive than NGB and they can break your guard easily. Roll jum...

Re: Smoke bomb guide for charging UTs.

I will try the simplified rules for the chapter 7 fights, which I find to be very tricky overall, and see if I was overcomplicating things. Rolling and bombing does work reliably for samurai only fights with DS and the soldier fights in the specific scenario of after DS UT so I included them. I supp...

I am already forced to. Using the NG3 costume for sure for speeding bosses. Also an ET normally doesnt kill at white ninja sometimes with plain costume?

Smoke bomb guide for charging UTs.

Will update as I remember more stuff, discover new facts, and realize I was just wrong. All these techniques are much more effective if you can change directions during your movement such as smoke bomb up but jump right/left/down etc. Chapter 2 If you’re just fighting samurai, roll then smoke bomb i...
