XxPuregruntxX Survival videos on Youtube

Post by Puregrunt » Fri Feb 01, 2013 4:01 am

I decided to lump these videos into one thread, that way they are more accessible and easier to find in the forum for those who would like to see them. All these videos are captured Ninja Cinema's from Ninja Gaiden 2's online leaderboards. The idea is to showcase the passing of each round, and what it takes to get through them. Each round consists of 14 waves of enemies and an encounter with fiend Genshin at the end. As you pass each round, the difficulty increases. Staring with the Acolyte round, then to Warrior, Mentor and finally Master Ninja.

When you complete the Master Ninja round, it restarts again on the Master Ninja difficulty. Each round difficulty is represented by specific scores from the NG2 soundtrack.

Acolyte: "Confrontation"
Warrior: "Thundering Peril"
Mentor: "Foul Power"
Master Ninja: "Twisted Shadows"

Apon completing each round, you are rewarded with one Grain. Supplies are limited to: 30 arrows, 30 incendiary shurikens and one Ninpo slot. You have the use of the Windmill Shuriken, which is unlimited.

As i get each one done, i will upload them to my Youtube channel and then link them here. I still have to do Kusari-Gama, Vigoorian Flails, Tonfa and Lunar. I'll keep this updated as i progress.

Very good bro.

I really enjoying watching those videos......LEARNING so much. I simply cant wait to play those survival missions.

I remember there was survival guide by CannikinX in IW, but I guess its lost. It will be a great idea if you can make a detailed guide about every survival mission.
I sure love to read it because right now those rounds seems chaotic to me.

As I said in the survival missions thread, this should definitely be here. Anyone looking to tackle NG2's survival should absolutely check these out. PG has dissected these missions like no one else has, and on a NG site, this is an essential resource.

Also, if you haven't put a significant amount of time into survival, you are really missing out. IMO survival is the most fun part of NG2, and that is saying a lot.

I could do something like what Cannikin did iraqoz, no problems. I think essentially, the same principle applies to every mission, the weapon changes but the methods are the same. But i can most definitely whip up a reasonably detailed run down of how to tackle this mode, that would greatly benefit those looking to get better and excel at Survival. It can be part of these HD videos, a bit like the icing on the cake? :cool3:

I wonder where Cannikin is these days, i haven't seen him in ages.

It might be old news, but its impressive to get past the MN round and find out what happens after. Is it MN again after the second Master ninja round?

Once you beat the first MN round (the 4th cycle), it then re-starts on the same difficulty. If one were to beat the second MN round (the 5th cycle) i would assume it just keeps going on MN. Getting to the 5th cycle would be absolute madness. :surprise:

Thanks bro. Just wait until you see my next video, the Kusari-Gama...it will be the most ridiculous run yet! :ninja:

I am displeased with your lack of progress. *Punches PG in the face* Get cracking, or you'll make me very angry! (You wouldn't like me when I'm angry)

You should update the first post with all of your 10 million run videos. Have you thought about doing commentary for them (I can't remember if you did or not).

I don't have the equipment to do a commentary, but i can update it with the right HD videos. I will start writing the Survival guide tonight after work.

Hmm. If I knew all the ins and outs, I have the equipment to do the commentary. But, I never got into survival. I haven't even beaten the first round on any weapon.

I would like some commentary for survival. I also only got the 2 million for all weapons, and didn't finish the acolyte round. I think the furthest i got was to genshin with the tonfa.

Lol, you're a bit like me. I found the regular missions on Master Ninja to be pretty straight forward (besides 8 and 14), but getting 2M with every weapon in Survival really started testing my patience.

What's killing you? It's always the dogs that get me :hmm: Even if they don't kill me I'm usually going into the next wave in pretty bad shape. Or I just get too obsessed with killing stuff and never notice the green essence timer going down until it starts flashing red.

The fiend dogs are just brutal, even on Acolyte. You need to be very fast, dodging, and using Ryu's iframes to maximum effect. You can't even give those dogs a moment to pin you with an exploding shuriken or do the dreaded pounce and suicide bomb.


Be fast, be unpredictable and chain those UT's.
