I got it done using the rock and being a lot more careful. The dash attack with the rock ability can do some real damage when you time it right. I appreciate the advice.

When one of your core design principles is "gotta go fast" you end up having to design bigger levels than you would vs a more Mario like paced game just to keep even in terms of runtime. No wonder Sonic like games are notorious for design issues. They have to work twice as hard to even be on par with the average platformer.
It’s their version of a live service game. They support it for a couple years then release a “new” version they expect you to buy. I prefer that model to manipulative battle passes, though Splatoon still has plenty of grinding and the switch to a “new” game means your gear is wiped to square one.I’m having an okay time with Splatoon 3. However, I can‘t see any reason that it needs to exist. Nintendo has kept a number of series on the shelf due to “not having a fresh new idea”. But Splatoon is essentially the same game with a few tweaks every three to five years. Splatoon 2 at least added the Salmon Run mode, but 3’s big innovation is the Tri-Color Battle, which wasn’t…great during the Splatfest.
The game sold a ton in Japan, so what do I know?
I was really enjoying Nier Automata, and then I beat it and started the second phase of the game… and it turns out the second playable character isn’t anywhere near as much fun to play as as 2B, and im stuck with ‘em until I wrap up the New Game + and can then move on to a third playable character.
Might just turn on Easy Mode and steam-roll this second playthrough
You either get lucky and eke out a win on your first attempt, or else replay the mission with the foreknowledge that a giant fucking tank is going to show up halfway through. It's the worst part of an otherwise really good game!I can't tell if Valkyria Chronicles is designed in such a way that sudden surprises within a battle, like an invincible unit that can one-shot anything they encounter, are meant to be adapted around or if they expect you to re-play battles constantly with that foreknowledge gained.
I won't savescum, I refuse!
100% agree. Adds nothing to this gameHaving finished Ghost Song, I have to say that when I like souls like games it's in spite of its souls like mechanics, not because of. Mainly I'm thinking of the penalizing aspect. There is a good old school Metroid-y ass metroidvania in Ghost Song, and it's not like metroidsvanias have never had hard combat, but penalizing me xp and temporary max health caps just serve to slow me down at best, and at worst encourage save scumming behavior to speed things up.
Thankfully there is an casual mode that does away with that, but I was already halfway through and too prideful to start over after the souls started dragging things down. Don't be like me.
Nope. I even have 250k left from the chests in the final dungeon. And I could easily grind money, there is a spot inside, where monsters drop other, very easy monsters, which drop a decent amount of money. Also, a guide for the last boss suggested stats that seem to be far beyond what I have, so I guess my Megaman is not nearly developed enough.I'm not saying this from a position of having beaten that boss - I dropped the game there, lol - but have you gone and got the best equipment, best subtank etc?
As much as I love RE4, Mercenaries really shows the limitations of their new control scheme. You still are incredibly stiff, often doing the A button things you don't want just because they give you i-frames.If you want to continue to have fond feelings of Resident Evil 4, then do not play it on Professional. I spent four hours crawling through the last three chapters yesterday. The then-revolutionary control scheme and behind-the-back camera really show their age when one of a dozen guys sneaks up behind you and whams you with a mace for half your maxed out health bar while trying to avoid getting shot from all angles. The bosses all having triple health and using sped up QTE attacks that can instantly kill you also takes most of the fun out things. Maybe RE4 could use an update!?
I did get a cool laser, at least.
