Re: Essence Guide - Very much work in progress.

Updated thread with the missing OT multipliers, seems like these top out at x7 on just OTs. Also added the regular grey ninja and fiend mage values.

Re: Essence Guide - Very much work in progress.

I have noticed your combo stays active for much longer off a UT. Sometimes you have time to charge a full UT inbetween so you can build up a high combo really quickly. The upcoming run me and Al are doing commentary for shows this in a few spots. The amount of money you can get just by keeping your ...

About time we had one of these for NG2.

Re: Obscure Mechanics

Nice write up man and welcome to the forums :thumb:

Stuff like this I feel is exactly what is missing when people just start playing, all these little nuanced abilites that are staples of the game yet you only really find them out through tons of play time.

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

It's great to see someone pick up Karma running this late into the game. Mission Mode is its own bundle of nightmares but with these scores I'm sure you'll do awesome runs there too. Any plans to make videos for Mission Mode? If you do end up setting some new records it'd be awesome to have them on ...

I still wonder about that sometimes. Cause I couldn't find any way it could be faked at the time. It's so long ago now that I'm not exactly sure about the details. I know there were ways to cheat survival back then involving the invincibilty glitch along with just boosting your karma. There are 90 ...

Re: Use this one weird tip to make NGB easier, JTB hates it!

I can confirm I actually think this is kind of awesome :biggrin: If this could be replicated consistently then this could have huge implications for speed runs I would think, in particular normal where ninpo use is extremely powerful in the early game due to the upgrade in chapter 4. Could also have...

Amazing work Kell, I've updated the scores in the OP and will update the video thread later on today after work.

Crazy to think only just over a year ago Randomise had over 30 no.1 scores for MM and there was only half a dozen WR runs on video.

Re: The Road to 50 Million - Commentary series with Bigalski - Episode 7 and 8 up

The UT glitch with Rachel where she doesn't appear to hold the hammer can be triggered fairly consistently right at the start of UC5 (Doku) if you jump backwards into an OLC. However, in UC5 the resultant ET/UT still awards you the points and doesn't kill the Silver Samurai, so you can use this to ...

Re: The Road to 50 Million - Commentary series with Bigalski - Episode 7 and 8 up

Parts 7 and 8 are up now, only have a couple left to record for now so this series is almost all wrapped up.

It would be awesome to crack the 60 million barrier for MM. There's still a few missions left I want to redo so there's more points there.
