Re: Top Story/Chapter Scores: Updated 04/10/2020 - Now includes HP1

Updated with Kell's Master Ninja run. Truly unbelievable run, the final milestone I could see being broken is 26.4 and maybe, just maybe 26.5 mill but I doubt anyone will do that anytime soon. We'll probably be all be old and grey before that happens. All the props in the world to Kell. Cannot wait ...

Re: NGS story mode karma leaderboards

What's everyone thoughts on taking into consideration original PS3 Sigma scores and the MC with equipment? If you are going for absolute maximum then the changes in the MC along with equipment will make a big difference so may two pennies would be to keep them completely separate. If we have the PC ...

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

Without seeing your video to compare all I can say is keep in mind what me and Al have said over the years when it comes to the lower difficulties and time. Every single thing you do can hurt your time, unless it's going to directly affect your karma then skip it. This can be something as simple as ...

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

Are you using PS plus to back up saves? Would definitely recommend that going forward.

That's a real shame but at least it's not a completely dead run. Always looking forward to more vids from the run :)

Re: NGS story mode karma leaderboards

Some of the time limits on the lower modes are very tough, I did do another Normal KR on Sigma a couple of years ago. Wasn't full on but whenever you see me go to a save statue and there's a cut that is when I save. Here is the chapter 17 video from that run. I didn't farm the berserkers which would...

Re: NGS story mode karma leaderboards

What platform are these from? We would need all four platforms for a proper top ten, I know we have PSN, XBL and PC covered but not sure on here who has the game on Switch. I did put a thread for the PS3 leaderboards like we have in NGB, doing that across all four platforms would be a big task so if...

Re: Armour of Intelligence in MM: Karma boost

This is correct, if you equip that armour and managed to get a red then you will get the karma for that ninpo slot. Definitely makes karma running in the MC very tricky if you wanted to get the max.

Re: 1,001,490,344 total in Missions???

This is definitely a cheated score. I believe that 65M is the potential max on MM on NGS MC If you can, report that score and it should (in theory) be wipes from the leaderboards I broke 70 million on MM and that was without any serious karma running, the fake scores should definitely be reported b...

Not sure if this is a change but regular enemies CAN kill Rachel in Doku's boss fight.

Re: Changes from Vita Version and PS3 Release.

I caught some of Farnhams stream yesterday and he mentioned a lot of moves in Sigma 2 seem to be bugged and don't connect properly. I don't think I will bother giving that a go, might just try it again on the PS3. I wouldn't hold out much hope they will patch anything either. Hopefully that proves n...

Changes from Vita Version and PS3 Release.

I've created this forum as I feel there's enough changes in this version that really make it different from the original Sigma release and also the Vita version. Feel free to post any changes you find or things you are testing on and I'll update this post as things get figured out. Changes from Vita...

Re: Master Collection Changes

Did some very minor testing on stacking equipment with armlets to see if there was any change and found something weird. I tested having white tiger helm + moon for damage and let the Emp 2 grab hit me, easily one of the most damaging moves in the game and there was no difference in the damage it de...

The horizontal guard crush on the Ogres was in original Sigma too, it doesn't always guard crush though which is weird.

Re: Master Collection Changes

I tested that as well and it seems very inconsistent. Against a normal soldiers assault rifle I got knocked out of aiming mode every time. Against the turrets in chapter 11 they didn't knock me out of it, maybe it's due to distance or what inputs you are buffering. I always hold block+X to cancel th...

Will make another forum if there are enough changes to warrant it. I'll just update this as I go through the game and note down any that I find. Sigma 1: Mission mode time scoring is like NGB and NGS, not like it was in the actual Vita version. More testing needed but 200k difference between mission...

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

I have no idea unfortunately, I don't have those saves anymore. You could do a mock run for that segment and record it and then that would give you an idea of your in game at that point, as long as it replicates what you're planning it would be pretty accurate.

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

I didn't think of that now you mention it due to the extra scarab you get in chapter 9. I'd say it's definitely worth it for the first few fights of chapter 10 if you can grab it early, it shouldn't take much time and as long movement is on point you should have the time to get it.

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

Awesome job man, really enjoying the run. At the risk of stating the obvious don't forget the crazy number of kills for chapter 6, if you're getting really frustrated with the run a break can just be the thing. A week away from it really lets you recharge and come back fresh.
