Haven't been able to beat GotU5 no items so I'm taking a break. Not sure when I'll continue the run. It's just no fun.

Taking a break sounds like a good idea. I've always had problems with MM in NGB.

Played some other games and tried GotU5 again but still can't do it no items. Along with some of the BS things that can happen, I've come to realize I just don't have the reflexes to pull this off anymore. I've decided to limit myself to 3 small elixirs and got close a few times so hopefully I can get it done and finish up this row of videos. I really hate playing this game now though because of this one mission. Hopefully that will change once I beat it. So looking forward to EL on MN. LOL

Giants of the Underworld is up and no I couldn't beat GotU5 no items. My goal was to use 3 small elixirs but I had to use 4 just to make sure I beat it and to give me some peace of mind. It really bums me out I couldn't do it now since I did beat it no items all those years ago. Not only am I old and slow now but it seems to play a little bit differently on the Xbox One X vs the other systems. Basically I ended up wall jumping with the DDB on the first four missions then used the UF when I got to low health. On GotU5, I just couldn't get the timing of the DDB wall jump so I used the TDS. I had such a great run going until same bad luck and a mistake but that's pretty much how it went for 5 weeks. I had to move on so I caved. Maybe one day I'll go back and try but for now, it's on to Eternal Legend.

Can't blame you Bigal, your not young anymore and props to you for doing this again in the first place. GG brother :beers:

Don't feel bad. I don't think I even got to MN mode on any of the missions.

Thanks for pointing that out TGD. LOL But I agree. Thanks. At least I know I did it once...... =)

But you never really played NGB right Reim? Weren't you more of a NGS and NG2 guy?

I didn't try that combination of food LR but I'll know for next time. Already moved on to EL.

I played NGB quite a lot. I didn't get into Mission Mode. When NG2 came around, I stopped NGB. I loved NG2 too much.

To be serious for a minute, red bell peppers are good for your eyes and walnuts are good for the brain - natural haxz! Nothing to do with age because this stuff is good for anyone ...except those with allergies. 8/

Eternal Legend is up and is the last row in the non farming series. Killing Masakado in Phase 1 and Dynamo in Phase 2 with a UT is key to have a lot of essence. Make sure to buy Smoke Bombs before you start Phase 2. Having those upgrades to health, ninpo, and weapons going into Phase 3 is very helpful. Overall it's not the best Eternal Legend I've done but since this isn't a karma run and my goal was to make all the time limits, it's good enough for now.

The last part of the Phase 5 video shows all my MN scores. I have over 44 million without any major farming so breaking 40 million wouldn't be that bad since you can use elixirs and ninpo on some of the harder missions. My goal is to eventually break 50 million but with the crash of my hard drive and losing all my Hard run videos plus the brutalness of GotU5, it really took a lot out of me so I think I'm going to take a break. Really looking towards Fallout and Red Dead as a welcome distraction from NGB.

Thanks for watching and for the comments.

I wish we had a backup for your videos. So much history.

I still have them all Reim, just most of the old ones look and are really bad. I should upload some of them to Youtube and see how they come out.

I tried to upload my old Hard Commentary Series and it really looked bad. It's great but sad in a way how far the vid process has come.

Any videos that can serve as a reference, to play though the difficulty you mention, help. No matter if they are a bit crappy in quality, the gameplay and approach are the main factors so that people can complete the specific difficulty or even improve some scores when doing a KR on that difficulty

Bad by today's standards, maybe. But, those videos set the stage for all the following tutorial commentary vids.

I tried running some of those old videos through my current software to see if they could be improved but they couldn't. They just looked super pixelated and some weren't watchable. The audio was great though. Also since I played music back then on some of them, YouTube wouldn't let me upload them. I was hoping it would turn out so I wouldn't have to make a current Hard run series.

I remember, back in the day, those videos were perfect. But, now that HD is the norm, I bet they look strange.

Was making some clips for friends on Xbox and did Abysmal Lair 4 and 5 no hurt (by accident) so I added them to the AL playlist. Nothing fancy, just dodge and charge ET's and UT's with the Dabi. Both are short and thanks to JTB for the commentary.

Yeah I wasn't really planning on it and it just kinda happened. It wasn't on the first try or anything though. Just got lucky.

Just an update what I'm working on. It'll be a while but it's in progress.

I've decided to make a time and kill list to get the 100K end of chapter bonus for Ninja Gaiden 2004. It's way past due and probably doesn't matter now but since I have the formula's, I might as well make it. It's just taking some time going through each chapter of each difficulty to get the data.

After I finish that, I'm going to make a Very Hard run on Ninja Gaiden 2004 making all the time limits and bonuses since there's nothing out there that I've seen. I've enjoyed not having to focus on UT's but just killing the enemies within the time limits. I do miss not having Smoke Bombs, the Lunar, the ability to charge, and being able to rotate the camera.

To be continued.......

Don't remind me about that camera in NG04. That drove me nuts.
