Welp, this'll be my first Ninja Gaiden. Any tips on how to play it?


With the understanding that it's completely unlike Devil May Cry or God of War. The controls will feel clunky, the enemies will hit you and you will think it's unfair. If you practice you may get better, but it takes an actual commitment. You may want to seriously consider playing on one of the easier difficulty settings until you become acclimated to the enemy types, even if you normally avoid easy modes.

Just an FYI about the 12+3 promo that is currently active where you get 3 months free of PS+ when buying a full year. It seems as if any activation of a year of PS+ triggers the promotion automatically.


darn it, i finally got around to entering the 3 annual codes i had about a month ago. that would have been an extra 9 months if i'd just waited. oh well.

Sleeping Dogs for EU+, ha. They also get Lumines for Vita. Wonder what fantastic games the US is getting.


Sleeping Dogs is their Feb game... we haven't heard what our Feb games are yet.

But I plat'd SD... great game, but I'd much prefer something else for obvious reasons. And I bought Lumines during the recent sale -- again, I'd much prefer something else.

Yep easy mode and also learn and perfect pulling off the izuna drop. Its cheap as hell to do it over and over but so are the enemies.

Almost broke many Xbox controllers back in the day playing NG Black.

THIS if it's anything like the original sigma there's no shame in playing on an easy mode. Their easy mode is most game's normal mode. And the harder modes are like gauntlet modes in other games. The key to beating this game is practice. You have to learn how every enemy behaves and avoid taking any damage. Be prepared to die a lot due to trial and error as you figure out how to do this.

It looks very God of War like. The woman could be Kratos' wife and the font reminds me of the series as well.

EDIT: This thread on neogaf also suggests the eye is Kratos' as well.

Yeah, someone in that thread also mentioned Game Day probably is in reference to the Super Bowl. It's probably just a teaser for a GOW Asension Super Bowl trailer.

Why give the vita version free and not the ps3 version of NG?

RAGE. Last week was a really good week, but every other week since buying my ps+ subscription has been full of games I already have, don't want, or tons of non-ps3 crap

Ugh

Welp, this'll be my first Ninja Gaiden. Any tips on how to play it?

I played Ninja Gaiden Black several years ago. If I remember correctly, the strategy I used was to keep constant motion/offense. Block when need be, but never stay still for too long.

How big is the Ninja Gaiden Sigma+ download?

SEE! Another reason to bring back the monthly updates... I'm afraid I know why we quit getting monthly updates. They probably don't know what deals they will get a month out. :(

I'm tempted too, but then I remember that it's not that hard to delete and re-download stuff as desired. It's not like I play every game at the same time, anyway. Still, I am on the look out for a great 32GB bargain.

Does anyone know why the EU February Plus schedule was released all at once? Is it normal for EU or was that a leak? I wonder if US will start seeing a monthly schedule.

That's part of it. They had a couple instances where they promoted a deal at the beginning of the month and couldn't follow through with it.

There were also a decent amount of complaints on the end-of-month updates saying that there was no good PS+ stuff (which were accurate because the monthly updates were always top-heavy), and that they should start staggering their releases anymore so we can get something good every week.

As for the sales ending tomorrow, I grabbed Nights, Unfinished Swan, Psychonauts, and HotD:O (sold my retail copies of the last two). Debated Machinarium but I'm gonna have to pass, even at $2.50. Still debating LBP Karting, but more than likely I'll buy it before I go to bed tonight.

So with these constant free vita games, I take it sony is telling the public DON'T BUY VITA GAMES, we'll just give them to you free a couple months after release.


Btw hey sony, microsoft's online store works on any device, your store doesn't support iPad. Fuck you.

If by free you mean paying about $50/year to Sony to continue access to the games, sure.

A lot of these "constant free vita games" aren't even retail games. And by "free a couple months after release," do you mean nearly a YEAR after the initial release of Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus? In summation, no, that's obviously not what they're telling the public. Don't feel butt-hurt cause you bought a game and it happened to be free through PS+ later down the line. I have 8 different physical Vita games and not a single one has been free yet. Get over it.

And there's no point in bitching about the PSN web store when they just launched it. Fuck you for being too lazy to use a PC/PS3/Vita.
