My first playthrough

Post by Grayson1048 » Thu Sep 08, 2022 6:19 pm

I was recently convinced to finally give Yaiba a shot and I decided to record my first playthrough. I asked MasterNinjaRyu to join me for a dual commentary, since I know next to nothing about this game.
It came out okay :)
For anyone interested, you can watch it here:

Thanks again for inviting me to join on this Commentary, it was really fun and we had some good topics to talk about, I'm glad I got the chance of being there ^^

I’m at 2.5 playthroughs at the moment. New Game on Hard, New Game on Nightmare and littles bits of all missions to get collectibles.
I’ve unlocked all but 2 achievements: Hell difficulty and Quartermaster.

My thoughts are: I regret having avoided this game out of prejudice for 8 years. It’s really not as bad as its reputation suggest and it has enjoyable things. I don’t love it, but I like it. On a personal likeness scale, I would give it a 5-6. Right around the middle.

As for jumping into arcade, I don’t know. MasterNinjaRyu says it’s even harder than Hell difficulty. And while I liked the game, I’m not aching to suffer through its hardest modes.

I do want to try a New Game + run at one point, though.
