Re: The True Ninja Gaiden Marathon speedrun

I play games so slow this would probably take me a solid 10 hours per game on Normal.

The focus of speed runners has always really impressed me, even for games made for it like Resident Evil I have a really hard time even making the S rank times. Good job man, take a rest! :p

Re: Depressing news :(

It's been a looong time since I seriously played NG but I remember the save files were notoriously finicky / basically impossible to transfer. Sucks! I think of when I first was playing NGB on an original Xbox, and then on 360, and then NGS on ps3, then Black again on Xbone and NGS again on ps4... I...

Re: The problem I see with this community

As compared to other groups I've encountered online I think action gamers (whether you're specifically talking about Ninja Gaiden or some other series, or just in general) are pretty friendly. Like, I love the Halo series and I've found that community to be awfully toxic and just straight-up mean. A...

Re: Rumors of Koei Tecmo working on new NG title

I'd like to see them take a shot at NG4. I hope they would leave all the Nioh RPG stuff out of it though.

Worst thing that happens is it sucks but you never know. I was pretty skeptical of DMC V and that didn't exactly reinvent the wheel but it was a *lot* of fun.

Re: FINALLY!! 50 Million Reached; Quest for Top 10???

Congrats sir. I've loved these games for maybe 15 years or so since I first got my hands on a used Xbox and copies of NGB and Halo:CE. I think on my original file in Black I might've been at like 29-30 million after a ton of effort so... 50 is pretty wild!

This really helped with all the resets I do in speedrunning ng2, playing the game as the default falcon costume results in bad gigadeath rng.

Re: Master Collection Changes

So against my better judgment I bought this collection, to support the series. And my god... it's not even the actual NGS and NGS2, but screwed up / glitchy ports of the freaking Vita versions? I don't even think I'm going to bother playing it, I got through a few chapters of NGS and it feels even m...

I knew about the camera thing and I've always liked WotVB on him because it makes him block - didn't know that about the grab immunity though, that's interesting!

Re: NGB and NGII master-files lost/scattered, unrecoverable

I guess it surprises me how bad the data management of some companies must be to lose such important files. I have every file, email and project I've worked on in 6.5 years at my current job indexed, backed up, and searchable to the point where I can pull up a random email from 5 years ago within a ...

Re: NGB and NGII master-files lost/scattered, unrecoverable

I still have the HPs on my old 360 in a box in the attic. The disc drive doesn't work anymore which is why I retired it but... I should really transfer those files onto an external HD or something. Lol at NGS2 being the 'final version' of that game. I wonder if they really feel that way or if that's...

Re: Interview with Ninja Gaiden Tournament finalist Darren Forman

It's a real shame they screwed it up so bad. Even just making it stop giving points after the first UT per enemy would have been a million times better. I still think they should've gone all in with Itagaki's gambling theory and just added green essence to the campaign. It would've driven people ma...

Re: Interview with Ninja Gaiden Tournament finalist Darren Forman

Really cool that you were able to interview him.

Sort of too bad they didn't keep up with this level of fan / community engagement for the series. Even just maintaining the leaderboards - I haven't checked in years but I'm assuming the NG2 leaderboard is still just a bunch of 999999999's?

Note that this is not a set-in-stone leak just yet.
