Re: Help with cicada surge

Would be curious to know myself - I'm terrible at it.

Though in my case part of the issue is just flat out forgetting to use it. But even when I do remember that it's a thing that exists I'm not great at it.

Re: Attempting a no-save run

I did this on a Mentor NG+ once and it was pretty fun. Didn't finish but got pretty far - Chapter 9 or 10 maybe?

Didn't restrict myself on anything and didn't do ToVs.

Re: Beat NGII with OLB and No Ninpo on Master Ninja.

Probably got distracted by another game or something. My gaming whims are fickle but since it's all for fun anyway I tend to follow them. So one day I'm totally committed to an NGB run and the next I'm back playing Witcher 3 and then two days later I'm starting a new game of KOTOR that I'll definite...

Re: Beat NGII with OLB and No Ninpo on Master Ninja.

Nice job man that's a serious run. :sunnyd:

Once upon a time I had an MN, Claws only, no item / no ninpo / no UT abuse run done through Chapter 6 and it was awfully fun but some parts were really hard.

These days I'd be happy to even be semi competent on MN, I'm painfully rusty.

Fortnite with Ninjas, probably, yeah. :laugh2: I guess it depends what we're defining as 'high sales' - would the couple million copies that DMC 5 moved be considered good?

Re: Could A Ninja Gaiden Animated Series Work?

I would love to see a Ninja Gaiden animation in the vein of Ninja Scroll - probably minus the weird rape-y stuff! But seriously I think Ninja Scroll is a great example of how something like Ninja Gaiden could be adapted to animation. I guess it's potentially problematic due to the inevitable compari...

Final Boss... help...

So I know you can spam lunar UT->OT here but is there any decent non-cheese strategy for someone with mortal reflexes?

Particularly using the sword?

I've warmed up to this game a fair bit over the years but I can't avoid thinking that this last fight is a real mess. Am I missing something?

Re: Ninja Gaiden 2 Joins Xbox One Backwards Compatible Library

Hell yeah!! Just saw this too.

Been waiting to revisit NG2, this is great news. Hopefully it plays nicely on the regular x1, depending on how 'enhanced' it is on the x1x (seriously MS get your shit together with these console names...) I might be tempted to splurge!

Re: NG2 staircase with mimimal UT, no ninpo, 2 heals, Master Ninja

Nice stuff man!

As I have said a billion times, NG2 is a hot mess but the ferocity and intimacy of the combat is yet to be matched as far as my mileage goes. I miss this game a lot. If they don't BC it soon I might have to actually buy a new 360.

Re: Okay is this worth continuing?

Based on your thoughts thus far I would say you probably won't think it gets much better. The combat itself in this one is, I think, pretty darn good but a lot of the game design does feel like a slog and the bosses are mostly shit, yes. Just curious what difficulty? Sort of a toss up - the easier m...

I did a Mentor OLB / no ninpo / no UT run with the Scythe. EXCEPT I used everything on ToVs, nothing held back. Mostly no items but I used them here and there and used quite a bit on that evil Rats brawl in Chapter 11. Overall it was really fun, not THAT hard and opened my eyes to how fun of a combo...

Mentor OLB / limited ninpo / no item / limited UT weapon runs were always a blast for me. Master Ninja weapon runs are awesome but in some cases really not that fun.

The TDS combos with the XX counter at the beginning (vs ninjas) reminds me a bit of how I like to play but he makes it look much nicer, of course. :silly:

Re: Weapon Run - Mentor OLB 3 Ninpo updates

^I don't think so... you just let go of block and push it again.

I have a hard time doing it because my instincts in NG are SO trained to roll/dash out of a guard break but I don't think it requires very precise frame-based input other than just being quick to react when your guard is broken.
