Great to have this. We should make a sticky of some of the old guides and charts we had. I have the kill and time charts for levels of NGB and NGS.

Actually some of the scarabs can be missed in CH7 if you don't pick them up because once that area is flooded, you can't go back.

Cheers JTB, just started Sigma+ on Vita and it's been years since I played NGB so I've forgot most of them. This'll come in very handy!

2 or 3 of them are in different spots in Sigma, not sure if anything was further changed in NGS+ since i haven't played past Dynamo >_>

Cheers Massaca, on chapter 4 and so far so good, I'll keep it in mind though and look for a vita specific guide if they start appearing elsewhere.

No worries man :biggrin: How is the vita version by the way? I've had a vita for a while and been thinking about picking it up but I've heard the frame rate is really bad... How does it play?

It's spot on mate, no problems with frame rate whatsoever. It looks and plays great, few camera niggles here and there but it copes pretty well on a tiny screen. The only problem is using the bow in first person view as it uses the touch screen and you have to tilt the vita to aim, it's really sensitive, good thing is Ryu can jump and fire it in this version. Just finished the tank/heli battle and it locks on pretty well so it made it a breeze. Just taking a 5 min break before I get pummeled with rockets trying to destroy the tower in first person view :cry:

Oh god that sounds bad, is there no way to customise the controls? I think I'll still pick it up though, being able to play NG on the move is too good to pass up. My main concerns were with the frame rate and if that's fine then I can make do with some tacky bow controls lol Thanks man.

There is a screen/button option for the bow but I'm damned if I can find FP mode without using the screen and I have it set to button, I might just be dumb though :headbash: frame wise it's obviously not like NGB on Xbox as it's 30fps but it's rock solid at that and never drops, after 5 minutes you'll feel right at home with it.

Tap the screen so it goes into first person bow mode then you can use the left stick to aim but the gyroscope still functions so best to hold still. When you want to exit bow mode just hit X, square, triangle or the little [X] in the bottom right of the screen.

Thanks Massaca, I'll have a mess about with it later, can't believe how bad gyro aiming is on it, why the hell you can't disable it fully is beyond me :huff:

Yep got it, much better but yeah if you move too much the gyro takes over. Wish I'd known before the tower, that sucked up a lot of healing items using the screen aim :(
