I think I missed a scarab in the Military Supply Base so no DDB. I'll try with the Lunar later. There's another challenge in the Stadium (MN mode) against 120 berserkers. I've found only one video without UTs from the stairs.

That challenge is very time consuming. If you have the Unlaboured you can really go nuts, but otherwise it really is Lunar time. I'd really go in with all your items if possible. You can farm for max-essence at this point anyway from all the ghost-fish. Takes a lot of patience though. I remember doing it with the Warhammer, took a long ass time in Black.

Yesterday I finally finished my No Healing items run. Like I suspected after Alma everything went smoothly till Awakened Alma, that bitch took pretty much an entire afternoon. I wanted to not use Ninpo items items either, but I had to with Awakened Alma and the Marbus Gauntlet. At the end of the day I'm pretty happy with the run, I kept some saves before Marbus so I can try again without using Ninpo stuff.

It's a really fun run and I learned a lot by doing, especially with Alma I think I've became a lot more consistent.

I've done the Great Bridge challenge at VH. It was definitely a tough fight but I counter-attacked every move of them.

I've finished my VH run. Nicchae was a less powerful Alma and you can bring her down more easily. The arena is small but she doesn't have allies. Ishtaros went down on the third try, my strategy was to punish her melee combo after a guard break. Being evasive against Nicchae and being stationary against Ishtaros, maybe they represent the double nature of this game. Marbus was easy to defeat with Dabilahro. The last two bosses went down on my first try.

Great stuff from the both of you, damn, so much NG love. I almost bought the Japanese edition today just so I could have it in my bookcase but it was too expensive (nearly 30 euros). That's too much for a piece of plastic that gathers dust imo. Apparently the game is really rare in Asia the seller noted. He had been looking for years for a copy to sell. Took me by surprise considering the game is barely 5 bucks used in Europe. Did they print it less? Or do people just don't want to sell it here?

Yesterday I started Master Ninja. Now I'm at chapter 5, the game is at its best on this difficulty. I really like DMC1-DMC3 and some other action titles, but NG is what I truly love. In the future I will have to buy an Xbox to play Black and NG2.

Yeah Master Ninja is fantastic, it really feels like the game was just a tutorial until you reached that point if that makes sense. It is a bit better in Black I feel due to it being balanced in a unique way.

What happens in Black is that you don't get the counter and any other skill-scrolls until you beat Chapter 2, but to compensate you start off with the Lunar, Nunchuck and Dragon Sword - a little detail missing in Sigma for some reason. I really loved that little added touch. Fun detail honestly.

If you want to get serious about NG2 the X1X is the way to go honestly. Cannot imagine going back to the 360 days for that game. Really cool to see you enjoy the series so much man!

From what I've read, in Sigma you have to upgrade the DS to level 2 and buy the techniques on chapter 3. Flying swallow is available on chapter 1. Well, I'm glad I didn't upgrade dual katanas at that time.
Black is the game to play and buy a console for if you really love Sigma and you want the best version. Sigma is fantastic but its differences matter to me.
NG2, on the other hand, is a unique title. I'll probably play Sigma 2 first because I only have a PS3 but I know from your articles that it's a whole other experience.

By the way, I destroyed the first doppelganger on my second attempt. Guillotine throw is more useful than I thought. I did some practice against three cat fiends outside the monastery. I used all of my weapons and even the wooden sword. If I cancel XY with a windmill shuriken it seems they can still punish me in the recovery. Do you know if there are better combos with the wooden sword? I could use standard shuriken to cancel XY but I'd prefer a method to stun them. I should try other consumables. GT works well to keep crowd control, but they'll punish me if I spam it.

XY into a shuriken into jump XY is a solid combo iirc, you can also do XY > Shuriken > wallattack if you want to be stylish. Hits them on the way down. You can also try using IS in your combos but that's a limited supply. Wooden Sword's best move is its kick and slide though.

Sigma2 is a fun game too, it is what got me started on the series. It's a little too polished but it's a lot of fun, and the multiplayer really was a first for me and really built a strong community at the time.

Damn, I finally beat Alma on Master Ninja. I stopped the game for a bit after chapter 8, but yesterday I continued my run. It's my favourite game, no doubt.

Awesome to hear man! She's quite annoying on Master Ninja for sure. If you can, you can cheese her a bit. Once you kill the enemies in the room prior, make sure to not absorb their essence. The cutscene that spawns Alma is pretty unique in that it doesn't despawn essence-orbs.

Once you start the fight, immediately do a windpath towards her into an 360OLUT with the Dragon Sword. Takes away around 30ish% of her HP right away. She can't dodge when she is still starting out, so it's a guaranteed hit iirc.

How's Master Ninja treating you so far?

Nice to know, I'll try that tactic in the future.
Master Ninja is no joke, the first level was harsh but Alma was the essential hurdle to overcome in the first ten chapters, at least for me. In general it's difficult, Very Hard taught me how to play but MN demands even more from the player.

Alma is, and will always be, the most bonkers skill-check. Not just in terms of item-preperation, but also in just camera fuckery, knowing when to attack and defend etc. Fantastic boss imo. If you want another tip, if you focus on killing her ads first, you can nail her pretty hard with a flame-wheel combo:

I show it on Normal Mode here, but it gets the idea across.

I used Inferno level 2 against her and it was good. Not always reliable but it did a great job. That combo is fantastic, I wonder how much health she loses on MN, but it's definitely useful. One of my errors was to waste important resources before Alma, I won't repeat the same mistake haha. Yes, the boss is fantastic and her AI can be very tricky. She's not a simple pattern-based boss.

Inferno is great to make moves that are unsafe, safe. Also works great against her Awakened version which I find harder imo. Note that on Master Ninja she loses about 30-40% HP to the Flamewheel combo if you manage to connect it fully.

I'm almost done with chapter 17. Awakened Alma was easier than I expected but it must be very difficult under some restrictions.

Inazuma makes it a lot easier, can't imagine doing it without it honestly. Her Mission Mode is even worse as she gets very brutal helpers. I think on Master Ninja she gets those buffed crabs as helpers.

Great job regardless man, doing great, almost there!

I did it! Master Ninja is done. It was a fantastic experience and I'll definitely try some harder runs in the future. I want to get an Xbox and play the best version... but I must be patient  Laughing
Some days ago I bought Sigma 2 on PS Store, so that will be my next step.

P.S. I tried to use the plasma saber against the Vigoorian Emperor but I did 0 damage. It's considered a different weapon by the game, so no bonus applied. I discovered that this error is absent in Black:

I didn't know about that, I rarely play the Sigma version these days. I screwed up with my purchase and got the UK version of it, so my Dutch DLC doesn't work with it which sucks. If not I'd have still played it since its DLC is really good iirc.

What's up next man?

The Xbox versions are very well worth it imo, really the superior takes. NGS2 is the first game that got me started, while I cannot go back now.

I'm already playing Sigma 2 (chapter 4 on Warrior difficulty) haha. Fighting as Ryu Hayabusa is one of the best things this medium can offer. It's too easy on Warrior, so I decided to not use a single healing item. When I unlock higher difficulties, I'll post in the other topic.

Read that one too, mostly shows that they still love the series and wouldn't mind to go back to it. But with the success of Nioh, and them probably working on DOA6LR currently, I doubt it. We already had remasters last few years on X1X, don't think they'll pump more out, but who knows!

I would love all versions packed into one(NG04, Black, Sigmas, etc) just to have everything on one console. Won’t happen, but we can dream. It’s just a shame games like this hardly get a chance from publishers anymore.

We'll have to wait and see. I can imagine Yasuda being quite willing to dive into NG4 to prove himself after the trauma NG3 caused him, but I can imagine Tecmo just wants more Nioh.

I'd say... Give it around 3-4 years.

In the meantime, maybe we'll get news from Itagaki. Although it's safe to assume that ain't happening this year with Corona.
