Ah, yes, I did mean V3. I forgot about the anime being similarly named. I'd agree, they do like to make the ending "sequence" take a few hours to pan out. I think my favourite was either 1 or V3, although I liked all of the VN games. I liked the cast of 1 best, but liked the class trials of V3 the most.

I'll probably be making a start on the second game soon, but might take a little break to play something more action oriented. I didn't realise until yesterday that the later games in the series were on iOS and Android too. I could probably use an Android emulator to play them on PC, when the time comes...I don't really enjoy gaming on small screens anymore.

That guy is posting trash elsewhere but I'm not responding unless he says it to me directly in the Knack 2 topic. It's going to be very difficult since I've started posting mechanics and really revealing how little he knows.

The only real options are to hurl abuse or ignore the topic and run.

That post is completely idiotic of course, but I disagree in saying that comboing a "brainless mob" doesn't take skill.
I agree that combos are not the be all end all of action games and that all type of action games (stylish, score based, efficency based etc) should be judged by their own merit without comparing everything to DMC, Bayonetta, NG or whatever.
That said this doesn't mean that comboing against a training dummy or a passive enemy doesn't take skill. Learning and doing stylish combos takes and enourmous amount of knowledge, practice and skill, you need to be familiar with the character kit, know how moves link into each other in different situation, know how the enemy will react to those moves (stagger state, gravity pull etc etc) and you need to be able to actually apply all the different techniques.
This sentiment of DMC has brainless mobs so it's easy and less skillfull than other games is something that I see a lot in the hardcore action game crowd (generally speaking), but it's something I strongly disagree with.
If it's true that NG is not inferior to DMC just because it doesn't have long combos the same applies to DMC that is not inferior to NG (or any other game) just because enemies are passive or because high level play is sometimes based on combos against training dummies. It's simply a different approach and a different design focus, and it doesn't mean one takes more or less skill than the others, it's simply a different skillset.

That said, I don't know if you were just referencing to  that particular combo or to  those type of combos in general. I just used your comment as way to start this discussion as it's something I see around sometimes. And I think it's one of the reason why DMC fans and general action games fans clash so much. As DMC fans mostly care about the freedom of expression in combos indipendently to enemy design, while action give a lot more importance to the latter and how that design works with the general combat mechanics.

The thread wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting. Lots of fanwank for Itagaki and Ninja Gaiden in general which is rare to see these days. There's a few familiar faces that 'don't get NG' or go 'DMC mate', but you'll always have that.

I think the biggest downside of the whole NGvsDMC argument is that it is pretty one sided. Ninja Gaiden players tended to just do their own thing and enjoy everything. There were quite a few NG players that finally took the dip with DMC when the HD collection hit and while most didn't survive the transition, it was all pretty cool in the sense of "hey man, not my thing, can't get into it, but that's cool".

DMC's vocal fanbase i.e. the fanboys of the 1% great players, are just shitstirrers and it's getting to people. God of War's community turned bitter a decade ago because of all the 'why doesn't it play like DMC' comments, and slowly you can see NG players (myself included) turning sour the second DMC gets mentioned. Which is ironic since I consider 1 and 3 one of the best games in the genre. I love them.

Agree they are just a different focus. Though I will say that the focus has drastically shifted. DMC3 on DMD had very agressive enemies and the core design of DMC at first was that you looked cool. Cool in the sense that you were so good at the game that you could style on enemies that other players couldn't even defeat i.e. standing on the spike of shadows in DMC1 or just styling on a whole group of DT'd Lusts in DMC3. You could be cool because you were making a difficult game, to quote Romero, "your bitch".

And I feel the abandonment of that vision with DMC4 and 5, making the game a lot more passive and enemies a lot more docile, really made the game less cool since everyone can now just juggle things to death and the only thing that makes it cool now is how arbitrarily complicated you can make said juggle. The only fights that broke this rule were the incredibily unique Credo fight and King Cerberus which I believe a lot more people used Gold Orbs on than they cared to admit.

Lastly, and that's a personal gripe, is the notion that DMC is the template. The genre is slowly drifting towards being defined as "stylish action", while only a very small percentage of the genre is actually about being stylish. Which I've always found to be weird. This also leads to people desperately trying to make games function a way that they are not i.e. someone attempting a Shinobi or Killer is Dead combovideo which is just beyond me. Let games play to their strengths as you noted. Just wish DMC stuck to its strength.

Enfin, that's my take on it. And also gives an insight into some of my DMC article notes haha i.e. the shift of what's cool. Was saving that one Razz

It's scary but I don't even notice that anymore. Guess I've gone numb to that. I always find NG:B a hard topic, because everyone loves and defends it, but will make gripes about other games (even in the same series) that are also present there i.e. UT abuse etc. Feels inconsistent. That and NG:B is the third(!) release of that game. Imagine what NGII could've been with that amount of time and love.

One of them is still trashing Knack 2 on other boards, and ran from mechanics discussion on the Knack 2 board. Really goes to show he was expecting an echo chamber of K2 hate, but was confronted with someone who knows his shit. I know he read my post over there and had no answer other than the mirror so is making himself feel better on other boards where he won't find opposition or facts. Very sad actually. Check out this gold.

Knack 2. It's so sub-par... you just keep going and going doing the same things over and over again. The platforming is mediocre, and the fighting is even worse.

I did go back to it. It still sucks.

This guy's thread gave me a fucking aneurysm when they talked about things that were "too fast to react to" . Of all the things to complain about in that game. I was more baffled at how he expected """evidence""" that people could do it on the first try. Bitch, how the fuck is that proveable? How many people do you actually think remember dodging some attack on the first try? And then they claim that because no one can show them that they did so otherwise, they're totally right here.

I can't believe I'm actually defending God of War 2018 here, but this dude was so clearly salty about dying a bunch of times to Sigrun, that they have to claim that the attacks are totally beyond human reaction, Jesus Christ.

And lastly, what's even the problem with memorizing an attack by dying to it? It's part of learning the game.

Why do we need to block it or ANYTHING first try? If you do you, if you don't you don't. Learn in both cases.

>I can't believe I'm actually defending God of War 2018 here

My last warning was because I kept mentioning him and I guess he cried like the little bitch he is. Then I immediately did it again and that's worthy of suspension more than someone who antagonize others daily. I just wanted to see how far I could push it.

We'll see what happens after they review it in a day or so. It says I could get warned again or banned. Don't care either way. Maybe it's about time to quit posting in that dump. Very rarely did I come across anyone worth talking to in like 10 years.

Please stop this bizarre campaign now.

It's ok for that loser to harass people daily yet when I call him out on his attack on others and ask how his Sekiro run is going, THAT'S what qualifies as bizarre? The rumor that the mods are his actual friends could be true.

Also, I'm getting blamed for stuff I haven't done.

Roy was talking about difficulty and some reference to NG2. Ratter said something like "Face it, you weren't looking for a real challenge". Roy listed the details of the Sekiro challenge run he did. After that I posted to Ratter "How's that Sekiro challenge run going?" I did this every time I came across one of his posts.

He never did or wanted any challenge run yet he wanted to criticize others.
