Re: NG Videos collection?

Bigalski's were always fantastic, with very instructive commentary. I learned a lot from them.

Re: NGB 10th year anniversary

Oh that's right... I remember being flummoxed by NG, then getting NGB in November, signing up to IWs on the 5th of November 2005, and learning an insane amount from Bigalski's awesome videos.

So that's holiday 2017 then, or Easter 2018. We'll have Mass Effect before we have NG4.

Re: Describe your first experience with this game

I first heard about NGO when I was a regular reader of EDGE. They gave it a 9, which at the time was pretty damn rare for that magazine. Until that point they'd only ever given three 10s. Their review (http://www.edge-online.com/review/ninja-gaiden-review/) sold me on first read. And I re-read that ...

Re: My First Run Through

I absolutely loved the game! Mind you, I never played the vanilla version, and I really didn't like NG2... so what my opinion's worth I do not know.

But I loved it and enjoyed it very much start to finish.

Re: Movement Tutorial

I also liked your clear style of presentation, and the use of the inset video in the corner showing your hands was also helpful.

I hope you do more of these.

Re: Movement Tutorial

Well that was fantastic, thank you! I normally just went for standard rolls, not changing direction with the follow up jumps, plus on-landing UTs. You've opened my eyes!

I wonder did that contribute to me only being able to complete Hard mode... :think:

Re: What is the core of Ninja Gaiden?

Speaking as someone who doesn't usually have a clue what he's talking about... for me personally... NG is kind of about responsiveness. When I press the buttons, what happens is what I wanted to happen. If I don't do it quick enough, it's my fault. Playing NG/B I always felt like when I died, it was...

Ah see there's the thing. The guys working on the game are not the problem. They really do want to release the best product they can... it's the guys with the money that screw things up.
