What tutorial missions end with something that isn't 'hard' but is designed to teach something that casuals/the mentally disabled cannot understand.

Pic related is a fair example. Its the boss at the end of Niohs first mission, there was a actual tutorial boss before it that you dont actually fight, just activate your super move and get a cutscene, but this Oni demon was the first actual boss and the public beta tests boss used to gauge the game.

A ridiculously small number could beat him. Basically its a two phase fight. First its got iron balls on chains around its wrists, stay too far away and it spins to win and nukes you. Stay close and its a simple move left when he swings the right or vice versa and hopefully you should notice the glowing horns are vulnerable to damage so a high stance cracks then and it moves to a phase two thats very easy where you just use ki pulse to dispel the yokai realm on the floor and just let it to a combo then back attack it, or use your super if you have it. Pretty simple fight that can be over in about a minute. Comparable to fighting Smough from dark souls by himself, if he hits you you can get two shot, but hes so big and slow that if you read his telegraphs that should never happen.

People bitched and moaned but people who like a challenge loved it and he was a barometer for the entire game, so it didn't sell as well because casuals were totally put off by this first boss. I'm kind of pleasantly surprised its getting a sequel.

What early tutorial/first bosses designed to teach the player do you think have stood the test of time as [Z A W A L L] for the 'light user' as the devs call them?

Which is likely if they've been building their demons for what worked until that point: elemental coverage and/or dodge abuse for press turns. Then is less of a casual test and more of a "can I stomach grinding for a couple hours until I can rework my team for this boss" test. Particularly grating since this fight happens quite a few hours before the point where applying and reapplying de/buff skills becomes viable over a protracted fight given their cost.

Nocturniggers often forget that the fiends weren't even in the original version of the game which for the most part had a far more balanced challenge curve.

Eh, the telegraphs on the boss are pretty easy, but there's a few attacks that can just fuck you over in one hit. For example, he can be pretty quick to snatch up an iron ball in his second phase and hurl it at you like a 90mph fastball for an easy kill. It's not hard to dodge if you pay attention, but the tracking is insane and if you're unlucky like me he'll throw another right after the first which you won't see coming. Other than that, the fight seem fair to me. It can be extremely punishing though; if you're a hammer or odachi fag you will die if you get greedy with your attacks. I actually still need to finish Nioh, how is the endgame content?

People build their demons before matador? I still had a pixie and a kodama. I guess you're not entirely wrong, but it's more like 'terminal back to ginza and GOTTA CATCH EM' ALL in the nearby area for 15 minutes'. The game hands out multiple wind-null options (nozuchi, uzume, hifumi) as well as some sukukaja and tarakaja demons. Nozuchi especially is right before him and allows you to, relatively, counteract his max suku buff so at least he's only +2 at the andalucia stage meaning a win with a fair bit of luck and hifumi is sold at the junk shop in the mannekin sewer, both requiring next to no backtracking. Taking a couple of minutes to get uzume is nearly a guaranteed win with media and wind-null, which also doesn't rely on noticing that you can just buff yourself without matador doing anything about it.

While I'm here, are FOEs really casual filters? You can just go around them and they're generally stronger than that labyrinth's boss, maybe less health but more capable of wipes. Plus once you start killing FOEs you snowball (in most games) making the game easier over-all with better equipment and masses of excess EXP to the point that it can be trivial unless you have some really retarded team-set up. I always saw killing FOEs on a first playthrough as the brainlet way to say 'I can't solve this floor-puzzle I'm just going to smash through it'

They're nowhere near as strong as that stratum's boss. The whole point of FOEs are to grind before the boss.

The 3rd mission of Fire Emblem 7 in Lyn mode

If you're new to SRPGs its very annoying, and really any map from that point on its annoying because you have to start being aware of shit like taking care of your super-squishy units, being aware of your positioning for more than just melee units and whatnot (for a tutorial map its excellently designed) and also manage getting side objectives, beating a shop, using chokepoints and mobility, and handling ranged units of your own, as well as dealing with a small horde of units that has a decent chance of killing your stronger units if they take all the hits, and guaranteed to kill the squishier ones

You either learn the hunter's creed, or you quit. My brother chose to keep fighting and learn. He still plays monster hunter and feels World is an absolute affront to the franchise

What's even more hilarious is when 3U dropped and Barroth got nerfed, everyone was talking about this guy. Topics of "why won't this guy die?" and "I keep timing out". Granted, he's a damage sponge and what's deceptive about him is that his horns, humps, and tail break pretty easy, but they don't reflect on his HP at all. One guy did learn that if you're fighting him via equipment available up to that point, it can still take a good 15-20 minutes even when you know what you're doing. Couple that with people freaking out about his spinning (not knowing you can trip him) or that his preferred strategy is to have his back to you (usually an opening but now it's how the monster attacks) and they waste time when you need to be hitting him near non stop. He's really not hard, but he did his job in teaching hunters that they need to be aggressive and to not get cocky if you happen to break a part.

Going by what the speedruns of this game do I'd say you're not entirely right either, Matador doesn't seem to put his buffs back if you don't use more than 3 sukunda on him.

Force resistant demons don't seem to be much of a factor either since they all seem to have 2 monsters weak to force and instead rely on Hifumi for force void on the protag for turn eating.

the temple has no reason to exist lore wise, and it kills the immersion right off the bat. fallout 1, and even fallout 3 and 4, had a better in game tutorial tha didn't interrupt the gameplay

also, f3 and onwards let you re-spect your character so you don't have to go thru the tutorial ever again, if you chose not to, something that would work wonders in f2

Fog Breath is 2 Sukundas in one press turn. Since buffs and debuffs are stackable multipliers you effectively brought Matador down to level that he can be hit.

Fuck that first boss, I died half a dozen times before I could beat him.

The second boss was a bitch too, but after that the game got fairly easy. The Ninjutsu skills kinda cucked me during the final boss fight though, should have became a magic user instead.


The only wall I hit in MH was G-Rank Deviljho in 3u which I was cucked by for 2 entire years. The way i managed to get past it was just simply switching to the nargacuga armor and switch axe then hitting it until it died.

Then Dire Miralis happen and I would either time out or die in one hit from its fireball attack.

I had to change to azure rathalos set with the brachy switch axe and a +10 bombardier charm, after that I killed it in less than 25 minutes.

I wanted to beat Dire Miralis in 3u and White Fatalis in 4u before I could get and play World

I must be a shit eater because I like World too for some reason

This is pretty common in all of the recent SMT games. You're generally fine using 3 -nda's or 3 Debilitates. But if you go to 4 that boss is going to fucking Dekunda and full heal, probably in the same turn.

In Nocturne buffs and debuffs nullify each other because they operate as a -/+ scale so after the 4 Sukundas you'd have to cast another to place Sukunda on Matador so just nullifying Red Capote won't cause Matador to waste a turn with Dekunda. He will just recast Red Capote. As far as debuffing Matador with Sukunda goes Red Capote is special but it gives a 4x Sukakaja stack which is where the real suffering of Red Capote comes from. This is when Fog Breath/Sukunda should be used.

Truth be told though Red Capote alone isn't that bad, it's the fact that Red Capote signals the final change of the fight with Matador where he'll basically do nothing but Focus+Andalucia. Once he starts doing that you don't have any time anymore to fuck around and losing press turns from missing becomes lethal.

By the way how dead is nioh on PC? What are the chances I'll be able to find a nig to co-op with?

Post the first one

The first one just didn't have the bottom 3.

this was only a nightmare because the controls were bad, with like a billion inputs required just to perform one wall jump. nowadays most games make it as easy as jumping.


>I actually still need to finish Nioh, how is the endgame content?

too hard for you, faggot


>Is this the video where yandere-dev flips his shit and beats his desk with his face?

i haven't seen that and now i want to


you mean like the infinitely-respawning fucks and the not-infinite ammo?

I want them to keep the diablo loot system, it kept character progression at a pretty decent clip no matter what as opposed to the souls series where you get your weapon, get it to +3/6/10 and then have absolutely no equipment progression past there except BB's gems but that's a whole other chain of nonsense that was horrible and I don't want to get into.

Why don't we play E.Y.E together?

I would offer but I don't plan on playing for another couple of months (got other games to play) and I'm also an anti-social sperg so will drop my spaghetti.

Still mad. Always quitted at the depressing realization that end game would make this nigger look like a pet.

Genshin from ninja gaiden 2, the first real boss of the game, this fucker will tear you several new assholes if you dare to play this game like a brain dead hack and slash or a devil may cry game, you'll have to learn how to time your attacks in order to block or roll whenever needed, and in higher difficulties it will also teach you how to manage 6+ enemies at once and how important UTs are.

Ninja gaiden 2 as a whole is a casual filter for videogames, if you can't beat this game on hard difficulty at the very least, master ninja is how you prove you're a true man you should honestly stop playing altogether and seek another hobby.

Are there still functional archives of the beta? or is it locked forever due to DRM?

f4f632  No.16085770


There's probably some copy left on a PS4 HDD somewhere, but there was no PC version of the beta.

fd1fe2  No.16085849


The beta was fairly fucking easy but had some busy work that got cut that made people mad, like having to roll through barrels so that they'd drop whetstones/glue to repair your weapons that had the durability of a paper bag

I forgot it was a PS4 exclusive for a while, should've played that instead of the Yakuza demo.

Also posting one that's usually posted as a casual filter. Cerberus really exists as the big kick to get your reflexes setup for the rest of the game. A fist time playthrough makes this boss a major kick in the teeth until you've grinded enough orbs for the double jump. but asubsequent fresh start give a nice challenge to beath him with either properly timing the basic dodges while keeping pressure with swordmaster, zipping past his sweeps with trickster, or constantly staying in his face with perfect blocks from royal guard. he can still be a good challange not just for the style meter, but now regaining the disadvantage of a smaller window of opportunity for evasion.

his themesong is kickass to boot

The oneyplays version is also pretty good.

>What tutorial missions end with something that isn't 'hard' but is designed to teach something that casuals/the mentally disabled cannot understand.

Demon's Souls. Death is inevitable and if you have shit gear whilst running into a boss for the first time, you're probably fucked. Also I love the whole 'boss is really hard and you're meant to lose' but if you do beat it, you get rewarded.

Unlike that bullshit fucking nerd dragon in Dark Souls 1.

>you mean like the infinitely-respawning fucks and the not-infinite ammo?

1) there are fucking armories fucking everywhere in that game that you can use to refill your ammo. and if there aren't multiple armories then the mission will take you past the same one over and over like for example the teleporters on mars. the game even puts giant triangles over them just so you always know where they are

2) every enemy with a gun (ie feds jians culter looter scum Synicles all of them) will drop ammo and an gun which you can then pick up or turn into health. these ammo drops have something like a 75% chance of being for a gun you currently have in your inventory regardless of what you killed or the gun that drops

3) what is psi powers/using your psi stat as a gravity gun to throw everything from tables to cars at everybody

4) what these fucking swords for, why the fuck do I have one always no matter what

5) if you are just hell bent on being a giant faggot then you can actually change the respawn rate or just turn it off completely

there is absolutely no reason for you to ever run out of ammo in that game and even if you did there are more then enough tools to keep on killing

the only thing I might cut you some slack for is not knowing that those giant wooden crates with the gun painted on them can be used just the same as an armory since I don't think the game put an arrow over all of them but still

This is the monster that made love the series, i saw a friend of mine fighting it and just getting his ass kicked. I had a much easier time than him though since i decided to main hammer instead of anything else, although my weapon still bounced a couple times. Although I will say that I started on the 3DS and not on the wii version which i hear was about 100x worse with barrioth and nargacuga and shit.

Why do you subhumans exist?

There's absolutely no reason to keep a retarded diablo loot system in any game.

It's only there to make retards like you sperge out when you see the same weapon you just had a couple minutes ago but with a higher stat number.

Absolutely retarded.

>playthrough whole game without ever using the lock on, because im not a dick loving homosexual

>get to a boss that hits you even with you dodge and it clearly didnt hit

>what the fuck is going on

>turn on lock on

>it doesnt hit anymore and the game becomes a cakewalk

JAPANESE TRASH, i dont know why do i even bother anymore with these japshit casual trash games pretending to be hardcore so braindead animu retards that literally use a in game cheat can feel good about themselves

That or it makes it different and provides a source of constant progression unlike the souls game where you stop caring about your levels/equipment halfway in because you're already maxed out.

Kut ku is an actual joke, the preys were harder. If you'd said yian garuga maybe because garuga is a cunt. Also, 3rd gen is legitimately the best place to start and anyone trying to get into the series should skip the first two gens because fuck going back to that trash when 3rd gen was such a huge improvement in every respect.
