ITT we post casual filters
I have 4 friends that have never seen the ending because of this guy
Aaaand just gonna get the obvious one out of the way
That's a nicely leveled party you have there...
It would be a shame if someone were to come along and make them look like bitches
My friend didn't even get to him. He lost to Mistral and said he'd never touch the game again because of how the dodge skill was an upgrade. He couldn't be assed to learn how to properly parry.
Oh, going through the park are you?
Even after nearly doubling the ilvl and giving everyone 20% buffs in everything, this wall still stands.
>mfw playing MH Freedom and fighting this guy with only Sword and Shield
Don't have an image but Issac Frost from Fight Night Champion. Like what the fuck, I'm going from knocking motherfuckers out in style to barely being able to stand next to him for 2 seconds.
Anyone know how to get past this bullshit final boss?
>tfw i had to look up a guide on his tells.
Never had any trouble past that though, not even with the plesioth.
The main problem is that unless you have friends to play with, the PF and DF will inevitably have at least one person in it who sucks at divebombs, and as soon as you finally get to the next phase, you wipe on something else and the tank ragequits so you have to get a new group where somone inevitably sucks at divebombs.
HES NOT EVEN THAT HARD
God, I don't know why people got so stuck on him. Especially assuming they were all on normal since Im pretty sure if you are bad enough to get stuck on him you arne't playing it for the first time on very hard or revengeance.
What baffles me more is people who get stuck on bladewolf
Well, the singleplayer is the entryway to multiplayer and the people there are fucking absurdly good so I'd say it counts. I know you're supposed to run the first 2 rounds, then hit his body the next round, but he just fucking brutalizes me every time. Every hit drains so much stamina and is a potential KO.
How the fuck do I beat this piece of shit?
A particularly hard level or boss early in the game that cockblocks bad players from seeing the rest of the content until they git gud.
May not actually be very hard compared to the rest of the game, but is generally regarded as the moment where shit first starts getting real.
Hey sonny, you want to hit max level, don't ya?
I laughed when someone quit over this guy. They didn't deserve to play.
Critical Mode, Lv 1
>implying it isn't the most difficult action game
Aw shit son, more XIfags up in here. CoP was like one giant casual filter. If it wasn't promy, it was snoll and if it wasn't snoll it was certainly Tenzen.
MMO progression these days is just sad.
He's really not that hard. The first time I played the game, I struggled more on Armstrong than I did Monsoon since I didn't upgrade the Murasama. Then I didn't realize until I went thru all the bosses to achieve no damage that you can cut the giant balls of metal..
>fight this shit
>oh wow it can barely move i can stay back and whittle it down
>2-3 minutes i die because i fucking suck at avoiding things
>next try just play up close and personal and destroy it while getting hit 2-3 times
i swear even now i still did not understand how you are supposed to properly fight it
That's what the game wanted you to think with all the characters talking about how it's almost over and the worldmap being completely filled.
And then a second worldmap opens up.
is there any difference fighting dghg in normal or hard?
because fuck starting a new game for him
I don't get it. Is this bait and I just falling for it? He move left and right giving you a ton of room to dodge him. The barrel (you know the one I am talking about) is more of a casual filter.
all you have to do is spam bufu, though
> 'elo Monado Boy! You 'ave been doing more than spamming backslash the past few hours, roight?
Not exactly the hardest thing in the world, but it definitely punishes anyone who hasn't adjusted to the battle system.
Can't believe this guy hasn't been posted
Getting a team full of Bufu users that resist the boss' attacks takes a bit of time and effort: i.e. things casuals don't have. "Casual filter" doesn't mean that it's super hard, it just means that it'll punish people who won't take time to learn the game.
He has a point there. Having a proper dodge move is one of the key features of any action game like that. Look at DMC3, the pinnacle of the genre. You can go with Royal Guard and try to block/parry/counter all day err day if that's what you want, or you can pick Trickster and dodge all that shit instead. The end result is the same, you avoid damage, but the means through which you do so are yours to choose. MGR forces you to always parry everything, even when you have the dodge, because the dodge in that game is completely fucking useless. And knowing how fucking wonky the parry timings and directions are sometimes, it's more of a pain in the dick that a legitimate challenge.
On Raidou his is a hard as fuck optional boss and the best possible summon on that game. I completed the content but couldn't bring myself to grind to level 80. So now I have to do NG+ to grab Alice (a missable unobtainable after the rocket part) and redo the optional pain in the ass content as I never actually summoned him so he isn't listed.
One of my favorite demons though.
This fight was bullshit. But this game is so damn good.
Seems like most people who thought it was too hard got stuck here.
You think I'm joking.
P1 can be pretty fucking brutal, like, proper SMT levels. Especially the bonus dungeon, hooo boy does that place stick it up your asshole, and if you're stuck with a shitty 5th member, good luck. P2 also has its moments. IS more than EP, but even EP can muster a few good bossfights. P3 is where it all goes down shit creek with no paddles and it just keeps going on and on.
Are you shitting me? Even for a blind playthrough, those guys are easy. Hell, if you're too shit to git gud, you can just summon Solaire and he'll fucking solo them on a first playthrough. There is literally no excuse to ever be stuck on them.
Are you frustrated that I called you out on being bad at video games?
There are bosses in shmup games that are just bullet sponges. There are some others that require having learned everything from the game in order to succeed. Not being able to finish a game is pretty much what I'd call a casual filter.
The exceed mechanic.
I always cringe when watching noobs play DMC4. I understand that they wanted to make the game more accessible to noobs, but watching noobs solely rely on the demon arm and regular attacks was hilarious.
People run into the gargoyle fight before upgrading their weapon at all. Then after they die once, they don't go exploring or find a smith and upgrade or do anything, really. Their brain freezes and they either run into the fight over and over or give up having decided the game is impossible.
Listen to me
What if we did
What if we did a "difficulty curve"
Sounds like those people have bigger problems then, like being complete retards. You don't even need an upgraded weapon, the starting gear that the Knight or Warrior gets is good enough. The only thing about that fight is learning that there is in fact a dodge button and then learning a few very simple and often repeated patterns. Or learning how summoning works if you're too shit to kill them yourself. I mean, you have to go through more difficult shit just to reach the damn gargoyles.
>Mfw i just stayed out of range and used the guns the entire fight
Took me some time, but i killed it.
Fairly late in the game, but you really had to earn your airship access.
>There are bosses in shmup games that are just bullet sponges.
I see a lot of this in Touhou. I wouldn't call them hard as it is mostly learning patterns. Not that you stated they were hard in the first place, just saying that I agree with you.
>There are some others that require having learned everything from the game in order to succeed.
I'm not a huge fan of such games but I have of yet see any that even come close to something like this. I'm more then willing to say that I could possibly be wrong about a genre that I more then likely know nothing about. You have of yet gave any examples though, care to give some so I know what to play if I were ever to get into them?
It's fucking bad when I believe that Tasoths with their MC bullshit are actually less annoying to deal with than fucking Lobstermen.
It doesn't help that the sonic cannon only gives you two shots max if you don't move, and they can withstand one shot easy, which is all you get if you do move.
Fuck ManEater. Only boss in DeS that gave me any trouble.
I wouldn't really say Minotaur is a casual filter since he's just pure Artificial difficulty.
This >>273872352 on the other hand is a legit casual filter
This asshole, specially considering that you can't fight him with potions effects.
>mfw the NPC faggot makes him smirk and he wipes my entire team out
I still don't know how I should have beat him. I ran around for two hours getting a couple of levels, making some potions, and still he wiped me completely in 20 seconds
after trying 6 times I gave up and went on to Witcher 2. That was bullshit too, but preparing myself, setting traps and rolling around actually worked, so that was way more enjoyable
There is two tricks if I recall (three really).
1. There is a way to tell which one is fake and which is real but for the life of me I can't remember what it was.
2. Geno Whirl can kill the fake one in a single hit.
3 (kinda of). You can just attack at random and if the damage dealt is a shit ton then that is most likely the fake one.
The whole game is a casual entry level RPG though. I think around the time of Geno Maze is where the game take off the training wheels and expect the player to grind if necessary.
I did, but there's a difference between being a casual and being mentally challenged. Hell, I'm no great gamer myself, far from it, but the first time I ran into difficulty in DaS was with Biggy & Smalls, and that was because I didn't know they'd pull an Agni & Rudra on me and of course I made the mistake of killing lardass first, making fuckstein beastly.
Either this board has converted completely into neo /v/ or I'm a casual.
>"Eh, they're goddamn turtles, how hard can they be?"
>need to use most of my health-items on them
If you played badly through all the game, your weapons will be so low-leveled you won't even be able to destroy one part of him. Also, he doesn't self-destruct like in some Gradius games
T5 is a fucking cakewalk, the only problem is finding 7 other people who aren't so god awful at the game that they can't move when they see a big green dot and Twisters on the cast bar.
he was a little tough alone but since I was a series vet it was just a new monster.
Then I went online and my party in horror as they tried to deal with him.
They kinda hand you ghosts and even allow you to obtain a Onix (thought a pain in the ass to deal with sometimes) just by catching a Bellsprout like 10 tiles away.
It is less of a casual filter and more of kids didn't know how to play the game. I can't blame people for getting stuck here when they were kids but if someone on /vp/ told me they JUST now got stuck there I would just laugh.
The most powerful fighting game boss ever, try to prove me i am wrong.
>People on /vp/
>Playing a old Pokémon game for the first time
Do you really think that? There are a bunch of newfags there but they only go there because they played the games, obviously,
Matador is the first boss that forces you to actually use buffs and debuffs.
Demifiend is the ultimate boss of DDS (aka the hardest bonus boss of the game)
So no, they aren't comparable at all. One is a casual filter, the other is fucking insane
Unlike /v/ where you find /a/, /co/ and /tg/ related stuff the general idea is that you use the board most closely related to your subject. If someone wanted to bitch about a Pokemon game then they would post on /vp/ if they had any common sense unlike most of /v/ though they would still be retarded if they can't defeat the gym leader, they would just be slightly above /v/ level.
both my first two builds
>not finishing diablo on single player during your first playthrough and relying on other people to help you
People seriously do this? I mean even with DaS and DeS I never go summon until the game is done and I start over again.
Snipers are god tier later on, especially Marina. Fucking killing machine, that one. Engies are worthless throughout most of the game apart from a couple of mission that have fucktons of mines or tank action in them. Matador is just a roadblock for casuals who happens to be met rather early in the game, Demifiend is optional and only available to be fought on a NG+ for a reason.
>Ha faggot hows it feel to already be stuck on the first level
>I bet you're gonna feel like a colossal retard when you look up a gamefaq for me and find out I'm just a miniboss
I remember that the first time I played W1 I didn't have that sign or I hadn't leveled it up enough and couldn't finish that boss fight. Eventually I just restarted the game and made sure that I had the knockdown spell ready for that fight and won it without any trouble.
The problem with that dog boss is that it's really difficult if you don't have the spell you need, but if you have the spell, the fight is over in two seconds.
>game is hard when you intentionally gimp yourself
No shit. That isn't a casual filter because casuals would never try that. There are lots of games that are probably harder if you do everything possible to make it hard
I made more trouble with these two then the Gates of Hell.
>But but but KH is totally hard if you play hardmode in that obscure japanese version, stay lv1 the whole game and handle the controller with nothing but your left foot!
Yes. It was a horrible pun. I feel bad about myself now.
This guy happens far sooner, and ends up really road blocking people if they didn't understand how the game works by that point.
The fury wasn't that hard at all
I had more trouble with the Fear
But I guess I was also trying to stamina kill him which is a pain in the ass
Fuck me, Im on this fight right now, the eagles nest sucks
Admittingly I only tried it a few times before class got in the way and haven't been able to get back, but they still one shot my teams
I had absolutely no problems Gates of Hell. The Jager fight right after though, holy shit it almost made me quit the game. And then I finally lost all hope.
Oh, I've just started DDS1 and beaten P3FES but I'm guessing the mechanics are similar enough that I shouldn't have that much trouble with Matador?
I've mostly been using Engi's to repair my tank/remove mines but it seems the second I take them out they get killed real quickly.
Should I be spreading my exp evenly or focus on 1-2 classes?
Matador isn't in DDS, hes in Nocturne
Nocturne and DDS's mechanics are similar though, yes
For one thing buffs and debuffs don't just go away after a few turns and can (and should be) stacked up to like 3 times.
You could find some Raiden arcade machines everywhere in the 90s/early 2000s. I'm not saying Raiden had interesting bosses or anything, but casuals used to be aware that the genre existed.
Even for a SaGa game, TLR had plenty of bullshit bosses. And while GoH was pretty bull, he was far from the top. Oh no, that honor goes quite firmly to pic related. Demigod and The White Conqueror ain't got shit on him, though they're pretty fucking close as well.
casual here...i heard all the hype about maneater before playng DES and boy how disapointed i was...i just got in that big fire in the center of the room and you pretty much control the fight...
Now Firelurker....this motherfucker is the casual filler...and for me the first time i saw how the souls series in general are fun
These guys were a pain in my glutes. Everything else was cake compared to them.
I bet most of you fags made a lightning Longsword just to try and fail again.
>oh i'm just going to enjoy this military simulator
>pic related shows up
>oh it's just a stupid AA tank what could go wro
OH NO. 1. IS DOWN
2. IS DOWN
3. TAKING COMMAND
4. REPORT. STATUS
4. IS DOWN
If you play the levels in order, I'd have to say 2-2 would be casual filter.
I actually got bored at that point because the bearbugs were such absurd damage sponges it wasn't even funny.
Well yeah, if you are familiar with how the system works in DDS, then you should be fine.
And persona knowledge helps a bit too, but instead of just controlling the main character's demon, you control your entire party's.
Hes still kinda tough, might require some grinding to beat, but yeah if you just use agility/accuracy buffs and debuffs, you should beat him without too much pain
Pugged it last night for my BRD alt. Shit is even easier than ever.
Conflags die the second they hit.
Fireballs are easily soakable.
Divebombs are just "stand in the troll hole and run in and out"
Snakes are a fucking joke.
Neural link is not even relevant.
Twisters are just "don't cross the streams"
Deadknights die like bitches and should never even move.
and finally purple orbs are fucking laughable even with a singletank method.
The only fucker could be some retard filling the room with liquid hell.
Got a sweet ass axe for glamor out of it too.
>that skill point where you have to beat him without taking damage
He can be kind of hard if you don't have much to fight him with because he comes right after two big resource draining moments (the house and the forked path with the gigante/bella sisters). That whole section of the game probably gave me the most trouble on my professional run.
I can't beat this fucker despite many retries. Even if I manage to kill these stupid pirates, this stupid son of a bitch is too strong and I can't do shit. I've tried to start the game over and over but even Marcus, my best unit, can't do shit.
Is this game even designed to be beaten?
i had more problems to the first demon than to those two
got them on my first try, though i thought
>"maybe i should try using this roulette thing, dragon kick sounds cool, maybe it will hit both of them?"
I guess it was necessary, since there hadn't been a hard boss in the series since Kazuya and Devil in Tekken 2.
>There are Ironworks and i110 people who fuck up on Conflag
>Is this game even designed to be beaten?
No, of course not. Everyone knows you can't do that, but we all just pretend like we did it anyways just to take the piss out of people who don't know any better.
I took a 3 month break from Prime 2 because of this bullshit boss. Came back and beat him first try. I was more mad about that than I was three months before.
>did all of Eridanus quickly and without breaking a sweat
I'm taking a break because Tiamat makes me fucking want to snap my 3DS into tiny little shards, but Eridanus was babby mode.
I heard Sector G is even worse though...?
Beat him the other day in my 2nd attempt, how ever my friend was getting really fucked off with him and took several attempts.
I'm rather surprised at the changes between the games having only beaten 2 as a kid which was by far the easiest.
