Re: Mission Mode Gold Speedrun

Not a speedrun.
My first time beating NG2’s Mission Mode on MN using only the Dragon Sword :)

DS Master Ninja Speedrun - World's First

My fifth PB. Training from Christmas to New Year. Last speedrun of 2022 :)
I died three times and I had a huge waste of time in Chapter 9. A perfect run could be sub 2h15m, but I'm happy with this for now. Hope you enjoy!

Re: Just came to say...

Great news, great news! Last night before new year's dinner I was testing Dragon Sword on an iPhone DS emulator. It was terrible, crawling at 15-20 fps on my iPhone SE (1st gen, 2016). BUT, at dinner I asked my mom for her iPhone XR to try it in, and it worked GREAT, only slowing a little bit when r...

Re: Survival Missions - High Scores, Strategies and Discussion.

I take back part of my last post, specifically calling the criterion “dumb”. I hadn’t considered the reason for its employment could be to not open the gate for future submissions like mine. Requesting full run submissions does seem arbitrary to me, but I couldn’t think of a better way to ensure ver...

Re: Survival Missions - High Scores, Strategies and Discussion.

An arbitrary and somewhat dumb criterion, since it means any Survival runs that just get lucky (luck being a big factor in Survival), and weren’t recorded from the beginning are automatically left out of the forum’s leaderboard. The want to “approve” scores with arbitrary criteria when the game itse...

Re: Survival Missions - High Scores, Strategies and Discussion.

Hello Goomba. Listen, since you’re a mod know, would you mind updating the boards with my scores? I did them last year and requested for the boards to be uploaded, but I never got a response. (I made the youtube evidence videos private, but I can make them public again for confirmation, if needed.) ...

Re: PS Vita speedruns

For my money, the PS Vita version is by far the hardest version of NG'04. The combination of the the lack of bumpers, the super sensitive joysticks, the dreadful shooting controls and being unable to break out of grabs, put this version on a league of its own. I had never suffered this much when gri...

I’ve unlocked all but 2 achievements: Hell difficulty and Quartermaster. My thoughts are: I regret having avoided this game out of prejudice for 8 years. It’s really n...

My first playthrough

I was recently convinced to finally give Yaiba a shot and I decided to record my first playthrough. I asked MasterNinjaRyu to join me for a dual commentary, since I know next to nothing about this game. It came out okay :) For anyone interested, you can watch it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

However, he said his Switch is jailbroken, he didn’t acquire the games in the most legitimate fashion, and his settings prevent his Switch fro...

Re: The True Ninja Gaiden Marathon speedrun

So my cousin Frank came to visit last weekend and he brought his Switch. He suggested it would be interesting to record another NG Trilogy run but this time without any previous training and showcasing a different combination of the NG games. I was easily sold on the idea :D However, the fourth diff...

I complimented you for several tactics, so I hope you enjoy the run! Murphy: It’s weird to think of myself as ...

The True Ninja Gaiden Marathon speedrun

Finally finished editing/rendering/uploading/processing! The past Saturday 4th I did a marathon speedrun of NGB, NG2 and Razor’s Edge, all on their highest difficulty, back to back. Took me close to half a day and two months of training, but it’s finally done. I added many comments in iMovie, includ...

My 360 slim started crashing recently, freezing even before launching games, during the X360 logo screen or the Home interface.

Re: MN speedrun. World's first?

Thanks for the interest, JTB. I almost always speedrun glitchless, though, so you won’t find any OOB stuff on this run. All the OOB stuff from
Vanilla IS present on Sigma 2, though, and then some.

I went to visit my cousin Frank's family for the Easter weekend, and he let me use his Switch to record this run. Routing on Friday, trained on Saturday, recorded on Sunday. I searched both here and YouTube and didn't find another MN speedrun, so I think this one's World's First. PS: I like Sigma 2 ...

Re: Survival Missions - High Scores, Strategies and Discussion.

Format B is much easier, as I was able to record this on my first try after the trial run. I underestimated the last weapon, though, just as I did yesterday.

Attempted to complete the Acolyte Round in all 4 Format A missions on a single segment as fast as I could.
