Either you're Dutchman, or this is one hell of a coincidence haha. But yeah I'd also love to see that vid if anyone has it.

Re: 360 VS X1X mechanics

NGII just has the best experience on the Xbox One imo. The biggest changes being: - no more crashes and a lot of bugged chests that would crash certain Xbox's are now fixed as well; - solid 60fps. Depending on your model it can still lag here and there, but the One X will only ever lag if you decide...

Interesting! I got curious and found a video about it (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_Tx6xkBpBQ) and the blood is a lot more...present in that demo than the release I remember. Pretty weird to see. Also cool to see Black Falcon Ryu in this enviroment. I think the tweaked UT system is better, it's...

Re: Master Ninja - No damage, All Fights, No Despawn

The JTB ones are for NGB yeah, but all of the movement tech in the series is identical and lessons learned from one transfer to the other. Stuff like the input for dodging right and then jumping to the left work in both NGII, NGS2, NG3 and NG3:RE for example, same with using forward+A on landing to ...

Re: Master Ninja - No damage, All Fights, No Despawn

Single weapon runs on Master Ninja are a ton of fun, I've done a few too and it's a great way to get to learn movesets much more in depth. A NUR is pretty interesting, don't think that's been done in NGII yet. Regarding tutorials, I think it would be interesting to have one that just lays it all out...

Re: Attempting a no-save run

Impressive. Doing it on Master Ninja makes each save statue in each mission that much more crucial, so skipping it is a bigger challenge than some would guess. Thanks! Yeah this is a lot harder than I took it granted for initially. So much can go wrong on this mode you really have to be consistent....

Fantastic run Farnham! Been watching it on and off these last few days, great stuff. I like that you tried to make the run a tad more interesting to watch as well, some good fights. No Damaging NGII can be such a bore to look at since you have to play super efficiently. Any other runs planned now th...

Attempting a no-save run

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwbXF2RykG4 Basically the only rule is that I'm only allowed to save in between missions. It's surprisingly difficult, forgot how much I relied on saves to perfect fights and use them as a safetynet. All in all pretty happy with the first chapter, though after I go do...

Absolutely nuts, fantastic run. Love how you didn't get greedy near the end but stayed focused and played the safe game. Overal flawless performance, can't believe the entire sequence is now completed but here we are. What's next on the list?

Beat NGII with OLB and No Ninpo on Master Ninja.

Also tried to add the ' no abuse ' rule, that I kind of skipped during some fights like Rasetsu in Chapter 11. Didn't record all fights, but I have a couple uploaded. Dagra Dai is still a mystery to me. I can no damage him pretty easily with Ninpo but without it, I'm really unsure in how to do it. E...

Re: Use this one weird tip to make NGB easier, JTB hates it!

Since a lot of tech transfers from NGB to NG2, I wonder if this would transfer over too. Wouldn't be surprised. I'm not at home to test it right now though, any takers? Same with the Sigma versions.

If that's the way you approach the game, I can understand that. Ninja Gaiden II isn't about taking zero damage, it's about fighting through the madness, dying slower than your foes. I really disliked the game too originally, feeling it was unbalanced and just a mess. But once I just accepted the cha...

Fantastic run! I was doing the same, but with Items since I'm still learning, but really hit a wall with the Rasetsu fight in Chapter 11. Was hoping he'd have a nice strategy for that one but sadly not. I can generally kill all the IS pretty easily, but the Rasetsus really lock me down. Fantastic se...

No UTs is no UTs. It is harsh, but yeah. That's why it is a challenge run. Gigadeath can be beaten using regular moves to its head, it isn't easy though so you might need some healing items. Ninpo helps too. >YXY with the Lunar is decent. Water Dragon can be killed using the Falcon Talons and walkin...

Really proud of this one! Took quite the few attempts, tried to use every move I could with the BotA (my favorite weapon). Enjoy :thumb: Ninja Gaiden 2 is fantastic. Missed quite a few parries and did a few accidental UTs due to the lag, but that's on me.

Firewheels mostly worked in 04 I think, since Black's enemy spawns can mess it up more easily. Basically, you knock her down using any method, activate flamewheels, XYXXX, XYXXX, XY. Then you activate firewheels again as I recall. You can keep her juggled from 100 until death this way, at least in 0...

This for your speedrun-strats? I sometimes get my versions mixed up, but isn't the Flame Wheels juggle still the prime way of doing things? Not sure about the inferno loop sorry. Sure some others here might know, I'd be interested in knowing too!
