Re: Interview with Ninja Gaiden Tournament finalist Darren Forman

That's for HP1 if I'm correct. Note that the player in question with that score squashed all scores at the time despite having only 56 hours played and "did it by accident". Which didn't add credability.

Re: Interview with Ninja Gaiden Tournament finalist Darren Forman

Glad you enjoyed it! The score of the 'hacked' player was "26,819,978" by player Ryan Martoni (Taibhse). Which is pretty bonkers I think even by today's standards if my knowledge is up to snuff (warning: it isn't haha).

Interview with Ninja Gaiden Tournament finalist Darren Forman

https://stinger-magazine.com/interviews/ninja-gaiden-tournament-finalist-darren-forman/ Most of you probably followed this tournament pretty actively when it happened, but I still felt it might be cool to share here too.

Re: “Ninja Gaiden Σ Trilogy” for Nintendo Switch, includes Ninja Gaiden Σ / Σ2 / Razer Edge, set to released on March 20

Note that this is not a set-in-stone leak just yet. We've had leaks like this before a billion times (just look at Metroid Prime Trilogy for the WiiU and Switch), don't get your hopes up too much just yet.
That said, seems legit and would coincide with the rumored NG4 news.

Re: Ninja Gaiden 2 Anniversary Edition

It's funny to see how different opinions can be, to me the beauty of NGII is that you *are* in control and that everything is up to you. Zedonius just chilling in the sky without any move being able to harm him feels weird in that sense, especially since his secondary encounter has respawning arrows...

Re: Ninja Gaiden 2 Anniversary Edition

Not at all sadly, the best modding that we got done in an NG game was some texture changes in NG2004 and removing Ryu's mask in NG3RE.

Re: Ninja Gaiden 2 Anniversary Edition

Both games are fine imo. Xbox players tend to find NGS2 too easy, and PS3 players tend to find NGII way too 'messy and unfair'. You have to look at the goal of the game. NGII was all about brutal agression, where you're absolutely swarmed with enemies and have to come out on top using what you have....

Re: Essence Guide - Very much work in progress.

Of all the challenges I've done in this game I never really bothered to look into Essence so this is fantastic. Might be worth abusing should i ever restart my 0-save run per chapter. Thanks for putting this together :)

Re: Obscure Mechanics

GT is fantastic but you have to use it 'smart'. You often can find a bad or lacking player if they keep doing aerial slashes by accident. IS ninjas have 3 'states' i.e. attack, encircling and ranged. Usually most go for encircle while one runs towards you. That one you can GT, the rest basically can...

Re: Essence Guide - Very much work in progress.

Interesting post, thank you! Pretty interesting to see that last bit. Would mean that doing single-target kills with the Flails UT could be the way to gain massive essence thanks to the 12x multiplier. Or by just avoiding kill strokes through spamming shurikens to get the 50x combo and then do a cha...

Re: Some NGII questions

8) Only noticed this point today, but Volf's "mid combo" shoulder charge seems to be a preset combo that he does when he parries you. You get a "ping", then two swipes, then the charge. But he can also branch from the two hits into a different scythe combo, which makes it seems like he just randoml...

Re: In search of Ultraviol3nt ToV1 DS vid

It also feels the agresssion can vary to insane levels, while sometimes the mages stop shooting for a little while or the IS ninjas throw a little less IS. I think the key is to keep going in a certain rhythm and also on/off screen seems to matter. 1) Mages stop shooting completely off screen If th...

I had the same exact errors man, really weird. In my original post I couldn't do anything until I removed all "percentage" symbols, it kept crashing the site for me otherwise. Calm-water-break really is the discovery of the decade for me though, never heard about it.

What does LT+A do while waterrunning? o_O Never heard about that input there. Do you take the left or the right side of the pier?

Good note on the Karma. Finally visual confirmation, guess earlier disconfirms were simply false then. Strange.

Re: Marionettes' homing attack

This is a bug indeed, but it happens at very specific locations only iirc. There's a single mage at the first fight in Venice that cannot be targetted or Guilottine throwed. And there is a batch of zombie cannon fiends just before the TOV savestation in Chapter 10 that cannot be targetted either. So...

Re: 360 VS X1X mechanics

One thing that might be interesting, is that the Series X will probably not improve on NGII further. So if you just want that game, I'd say wait for the Series X's release and then buy an One X since it will probably drop in price.
