Re: Let's compare Ninja Gaiden systems with other games

Right there with you.....the action and just plain FEEL of NG is unparalleled for me in gaming. There is always something missing for me in other games I try compared to the visceral, tangible, hard to articulate feeling of Ryu and NG action. Honestly, this is why I have such huge excitement for NI...

Re: All things considered, what do you think about NG's stor

Thing is I'm not being cynical, that's how I genuinely feel about games like NG, DMC, Bayonetta etc (all of which I think have terrible stories). The stories in these games mean absolutely nothing to me, I play them purely for the gameplay mechanics and to kill stuff. When I want to play a game wit...

Re: All things considered, what do you think about NG's stor

As for NG3/RE I have zero clue what they were trying to do there. Slavic curses, the return of Obaba, Ryu the step parent, sibling necromancy, what the actual fuck Team Ninja? Yeah, I know the story of Ninja Gaiden 3 is pretty unpopular, as well as the whole game, really (and for good reason). But ...

All things considered, what do you think about NG's story?

So yeah, it's easy to just say that Ninja Gaiden is all about the gameplay and the story is just an excuse to have fights, and in a way it may be true, but if we were to look at the story, the world and it's mythology by itself, what do you people think about it? Is it really just an excuse plot lik...

Let's compare Ninja Gaiden systems with other games

So guys, a lot of times when I play a new game I tend to be a bit spoiled by Ninja Gaiden in one way or another. That's because whenever I play a game that other people suggest I play because I like Ninja Gaiden, there's always SOMETHING that it lacks compared to Ninja Gaiden. I've realized that's b...

Re: Ever played the game with Voice Only?

^I was expecting the same. Some crazy mofo did it for Dark Souls. I can imagine NG2 being more challenging... I don't think it's really THAT much more challenging than usual. Many of the attack cues of enemies are via their voices in combination with the sound effects, so really, it's pretty much j...

Sadly I kinda lost my ability to properly record my gameplay, so someone else will have to do it ^^; If someone DID record gameplay like this, though, this is a good way to record the character's dialogues without all the background noise and music and such. I dunno, make a ringtone out of it :P *So...

Hey guys, haven't been here for a long time, but didn't want to make a big deal about me being back and all that, because if I did that this would be an annual occurence XD So anyway, after having played this game for ages I decided to play around with the options in ways I never did before.

Re: Anyone know Ninja Gaiden frame data across each game?

I don't think it's so much how intimidating the game is as much as that Ninja Gaiden as an action game has a different audience than Devil May Cry or Bayonetta. Devil May Cry and Bayonetta encourage the players to find out ever nook and crany about it's combo system, and figuring out the precise dat...

Re: Anyone know Ninja Gaiden frame data across each game?

Just out of curiosity, how did people get those frame data for Devil May Cry 3 and Metal Gear Rising? Because if it's thanks to their PC ports, it'd be kinda difficult to get the exact frame data of the Ninja Gaiden games as the only one on PC is Yaiba, which uses a totally different combat system a...

Re: Runaway Lighting Execution

The move is indeed kinda useless, despite how tricky it is to use it (seriously, why can't it just be X+Y like it actually says in the combo list? X+A worked fine for windrun...) but I guess there's a certain novelty to it. You can do fun things with it like throwing and Incendiary Shuriken and then...

Re: Input for wings of the vermillion bird

The input is XX>XYYY Know that you are not required to press forward before the third X. The Talons don't have an input for X>X, so you can just press forward in advance after the first X and the uppercut will come out either way. After that, just mash Y as fast as you can. Otherwise, just look at a...

You can switch characters during Tag Mission?!

All this time I've been having trouble with this version of Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 because the Tag Missions didn't allow you to join in with a second player and instead you get an AI partner who constantly dies. But I just found out you can switch during gameplay by pressing Down on the Directional Pa...
