For me, almost all of the Missions were brutal.

So just to update this: I was taking a break from Mission Mode videos to do a Hard run but my hard drive crashed. I lost all the raw NGB files plus some other items so that's on hold. I'm still waiting to see if any data can be recovered. It's my fault for not backing up in a year and since I didn't have the desire to start Hard over (I was in chapter 10), I've decided to finish out my non farming Mission Mode videos. Thanks again to JTB for joining me with the commentary.

The CG row is pretty brutal other than maybe CG3. I've been trying to make these videos without using elixirs or ninpo but just couldn't do that on CG1 and used ninpo. I did however make sure to finish the mission by getting my ninpo back and was lucky enough to do it no hurt. I show a lot of failed tries for CG1, CG2, CG4, and CG5 so hopefully people can learn from my mistakes and our commentary. Maybe one day I'll go back and try CG1 again without using ninpo but that won't be anytime soon.

I bought a Xbox One X and now can make the videos in 1080P. My capture card won't let me do 4K but I'm sure 1080P will suffice. Even after all these years, this game looks amazing.

It's a sign, Al, someone upstairs wants you to switch your PS4 on...

I also bought an xbox one x just for the purpose of it being a glorified ngb hd player, plus the ninpo drops on it are better than original console and xb360 :thumb:

They are for me too Reim but CG3 compared to the rest of that row isn't IMO.

LR, I did turn it on while I was sorting out all my hard drive issues and I turned it off once I got a Xbox One X. LOL

Nice Unwary. We've really enjoyed it.

Darn it, I miss everything!

You gotta jump on your PS4 again sometime, me and Shig ended up talking for hours instead of playing anything. We can make this the new Vegas meet up, save a ton on airfare, and just use google maps street view to tour and have a virtual night out on the town. Crap, this jokey idea could work..!

I always had a great time talking with the guys when we were on Xbox. I'm so focused on getting this series done, I can't make any promises I'll turn it on anytime soon. Glad you guys are talking and having fun.

Fateful Confrontation is up. I decided to fight the Cones two different ways. The first being with their weapon and the second using the DDB and XY move doing them no hurt. The DDB is always going to give you more points because of health and time vs outright fighting them considering I'm not farming them for score. The Clones are way overpowered IMO so I used the Armlet of Tranquility since the other fighting armlets have little benefit.

To be honest, this is the first time I've ever fought the Clones with their weapons because it doesn't give you a good score and I prefer to play for score. However it did give me a great deal of satisfaction beating them that way, especially the Flail Clone. I did put in my Death Counter clip on his Mission video. It's sad and funny at the same time.

I always hated the Flail Clone. He's such a prick.

I've got BotA row finished but trying the beat the two Clones straight up without using health or ninpo. They are so cheap plus any mistake I make gets punished. I see why I could only find two videos out there fighting them that way and why people just wall jump the mission. This is might take a LONG time.

Oh I was and so much more but I hung in there and beat them. I actually called Shelly at work to tell her! LOL Got all that row of videos ready to go, just working out a record time with JTB. There's a few good bloopers in there as well.

Thanks TGD. I'll admit is was a bit lucky but I'll take. Great videos you're making BTW. Top Notch as always.

I'm going thru the GotU row. Still amazing you did most of those no hurt. I gave up just trying to fight them and wall jumped. :(

Thanks brother ! You will make it for GotU, mostly time and patience, not sure what I'm getting into for re-doing those no hurt, I really want top notch quality for the majority of the missions on videos (excluding MD2, I value my sanity too much :anxious: )

Battlefield of the Abyss is up. The first three phases are being safe with Dabi ETs/UTs. Phase 4 I show fighting straight up with the UF and then wall jumping no hurt for a better score. For Phase 5 I made two separate videos, one fighting them toe to toe without using elixirs or ninpo and the second is the wall jump/XY method with the DDB and plenty of bloopers. The Dual Clones are so cheap/overpowered and might have been the hardest Mission I've done so far but oh so satisfying.

GotU5 and EL to finish my non-farming vids. I should end up with around 44 million. After that, I'll start farming Missions to try and break 50.

The Giants of the Underworld might take a bit to finish. While I've got the first four Missions already recorded and edited, GotU5 is a real pain in the butt. It's not a fun Mission to play especially since I'm trying to do it no elixir no ninpo. I've tried singling them out with the DS or wall jumping with the DDB and just haven't had any success. If I could just get defeat one of them, the other isn't so bad. Send positive vibes my way. LOL

It's not going at all. Nothing I've tried seems to be working and it's getting to the point of just not being fun anymore. I've managed to kill Nicchae only once then got lasered off screen and died. It's break time and not sure when I'll get back to it.

Congrats on beating that Mission like you wanted. Impressive to say the least.
