What was your most exciting/exhilarating achievement in a video game /v/?
That was a good fight, OP, I really enjoyed this one as well. Especially on NG+1 with the Fume Knight Sword as a pure STR build. Just slugging it out, getting his moveset down, shit was fun as fuck.
Beating this fucker when I was 12 years old with close to no knowledge or tactics
Doing no-damage runs of all bosses in Revengeance. Most of those battles aren't exactly worth mentioning here, but Monsoon and Armstrong sure required insane amounts of practice.
Fun fact: I bet that most didn't notice how Monsoon's smoke grenade actually does damage you by something like 0.1%. Non-issue normally, but goddamn annoying for no-damage fight.
I don't remember a specific case.
more recently that would be finding footage of your matches I guess.
Like streams and people talking how you play.
that was "exhilarating" when I found that for sure but I don't like getting attention in the first place.
Probably not my best, but it is the most recent.
No magic, no arrows, no summons.
Went with a quality build and stayed online the entire time
but used an effigy before mirror knight because fuck that place.
I got invaded there on an earlier run and the guy sat at the end of the hall for 5 minutes.
I had to aggro all the statue knights at once before he would come in.
I don't blame him.
I beat this fucking boss when i was a kid.
and actually finished the game too.
took me a year.
and that was probably one of the best years of my life.
i will take the memories i have from this game to my grave.
Back when LoL had no AUS servers (late 2012) me and my mates who were all around silver MMR played some ranked 5's.
We managed to win all 5 placement games on 200 ping and get placed in gold 5.
1 of the games ended with a base race where our team was on the nexus and so was theirs. I, as malphite top, TPed back to base and managed to ult all 5 of them and gave my team enough time to finish.
Was a lot of fun and a decent feat considering we played some diamond/plats.
I've got a few world records on Pac-Man Championship Edition DX+ (not counting the eight people above me with 00:00:00 as their time).
For non-leaderboard hunting, probably beating classic 9.0 with no lives lost or continues in Smash 4. That took me forever.
I was lost in DS1 so I fought Sif while being underleveled as fuck, he kept 1-2 shotting my ass on close combat so I used a really shitty crossbow.
The fight took literally 20+ minutes, it was kinda like monster hunter.
I once ended up first on a scrub server in Quake Live.
My biggest solo achievement is probably finishing Echoes of Time on very hard 3 (something like new game ++++)
I used to dominate Modern Warfare 3 a few years back and did some pretty ridiculous shit
>Dropped a triple MOAB
>Dropped a MOAB in Search and Destroy
>200+ kill games on Dome
>Every gun gold
Either the first time I beat O&S after around 6 hours of trying, or when I finished expert solo on L4D for the first time (blood harvest). Not my proudest achievements but definitely the most adrenaline-inducing.
>Going in with Velstadt's set
Well done "B-Team".
When I got my military and industries set up to work with relative smoothness in Dwarf Fortress.
We are few. I also have a level 1 run under my belt, but that's not as impressive.
i beat hard mode draculas curse using only trevor
I beat Super Ghouls and Ghosts back in the day, but never the NES one. I grew up with that era, though, so Dark Souls/DeS/this weird boner people have for 'hard' games recently feels like old hat. Honestly, none of us are good at anything, we just like wasting our time in different ways.
doing the 200 dungeon in Thousand year doors while mario had 10HP and only 3 partners alive with <5HP and dried shroom + invisipaste + some honey.
200 rooms. Avoided all damage.
No one will believe me
after 10 hours
dex build getting wrecked and not having any summons
finally got this fucker yesterday
best feeling ever , no boss , not even artorias can match the salt mines i had after this fight.
>Fusion Dragon (Golden Sun)
It took me almost an entire week back when i was younger to be the final bosses. With only 15 of the djinns found, I i struggled a lot during this fight. Lost my shit when i saw it fade to oblivion
I actually just went back and beat this game for the first time like two weeks ago. My 12 year old self had gotten stuck on the tribal hunt years back.
It's still fun as fuck and has some really challenging segments (most of which are all Vela segments for some reason....fuck you Goldwood Lodge). Felt really nice to finally see those credits after almost 20 years.
Don't listen to this faggot >>323494424, you stuck with it and learned how to git gud without summoning or crying about it. Nice job, anon.
In one day you went from being stuck on O&S for 10 hours - to beating Artorias?
beat every other boss without any problems
the ornstein evolved phase fucking glitches out and instaslashes me up into the air behind pillars
what is casual about not cheesing my self with summoning le meme army hacked accounts to help me.
NG+ Fume Knight after several fucking months of trying I respecced for 30 faith, 30 int, then after using stupidly annoying equipment to get my attunement up, used Dark Weapon and oath on a Dark Crypt Blacksword. 800 damage a swing. Got on such an emotional high I proceeded to fuck up Elana, Alonne, and Sidh in the same night.
when you've finished the game try starting a new run as a mage, and laugh at how piss-easy it makes the game. ornstein goes down in 3-4 soul spears. You probably played the hardest class first, being low defense and still needing to be up close.
The original golden sun games were top tier, It's a shame what they did with Dark Dawn. The gameplay was there but the story had a lot of bullshit it didn't need holding it back. I feel like if they had cut the extra four party members till later and just focused on the kids for now (and wrote the Tuaparang better) it might have been something great....... never getting that fight with Alex hurts.
getting top 8 at CEO2015 in my favorite fighting game.
Stage 3 Vergil on Dante Must Die. Shit got intense.
>talks shit not knowing that lingering sentiment is probably the hardest arpg boss of all time
>OF ALL TIME
Soulsfags don't even know. Shit's basically impossible without savestates.
>I've known plenty of people with autism/aspergers over the years and they were fine
autism differs in severity and even then it affects people differently. don't try to bullshit your way out of your bullying you piece of shit.
>heh reminds of that pure pwnage qt
>reminds me of RL gril gamer i knew and close friend
>dat feel when i finally makes moves but she gently rejects me, im like a brother to her
>years later she doesnt play vidya anymore
>we dont even talk anymore because she feels its too awkward and she just feels bad talking to me, i think she probably just needs time
>everyone tells me, not your fault anon, these things can just be tricky
>2 years later, shes now a tumblrina and full on feminist/sjw,hates men after going through 2 or 3 boyfriends
the world sure does change quickly, everything is feels /v/
Getting 31-0 KDR as the assaulting team in Chivalry. It was a pretty great game.
Another time was a 8v1 encounter on a narrow bridge. Took them out then killed two archers that were taking pot shots at me.
More recently getting 45 gold stars in the pre-season UT, before the AI teammate buffs. Probably the most difficult thing I've ever done in a video game.
No, you don't fucking understand. I volunteer every year at a summer place for autistic kids, I'm aware that it differs. There's a difference between being introverted/bad at conversation and actively hating people. It's always those who have it mildly that use it as an excuse to act however they like without repercussions.
Every time I beat a story mission in this game on the hardest difficulty
>Fuck off to the millions of other DD threads then.
Ha. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! FUCK YOU CUNT I'LL POST DRAGON'S DOGMA WHENEVER AND WHEREVER I WANT AND YOU CAN JUST TAKE YOUR DARK SHIT GARBAGE RIGHT BACK TO /vg/ WHERE IT BELONGS!
Took me months to take this faggot down solo.
Probably minor compared to a lot of other people achievements but:
>Beat Floors 91-100 in FFXII IZJS's trial mode.
>Beat the Absolute Conqueror in TLR
>Beat that Forbidden Memories Yu-Gi-Oh game as a kid without figuring out how to make THTD.
>Beat an Akashi FFA in Sengoku Rance using only generic commanders.
>Beat XCOM EU in
Beating Armstrong on Revengeance difficulty with a S-Rank.
I almost uninstalled the game out of rage the sixth time around, but I did it.
Has anyone here ever finished the entire mission mode in NG Sigma? The one with Rachel fighting the two demon bitches drove me to temporary insanity. Granted I was only sixteen or seventeen and I'm better now, but holy shit.
>>Beat that Forbidden Memories Yu-Gi-Oh game as a kid without figuring out how to make THTD.
How much free time did you have as a kid? You could earn a pilot's license in the time it would take to do that.
This girl fucked me up. First Pokemon game and my only good Pokemon was my starter which was a or prinplup at the time. Her having 3 grass type, and me having water, I had a bad time
As far as recent achievements go, Brutality 101 from Arkham Knight.
Beating Andross on Expert with no wings or lives left. Escaping with Fox's dad felt so climatic and all the more memorable.
>You've become so strong, Fox
I remember when I finally, FINALLY beat Cynthia in Diamond. It all came down to just my Dialga trying to tank half the team because I was out of revives. In hindsight my team was trash, but I still pulled through and won. It was great.
5-starring Misirlou in GH2. Despite being 10x more bullshit, GH3 had a way easier career mode to 5-star.
Or when I was a kid I beat a Transformers fighting game after a lot of tries, and was so excited that I and ended up getting some heart palpitations, going to to the doctor and getting diagnosed with WPW.
>I've posted this a few times on /v/ before proving I've been here way too long but whatever
I beat Emerald Weapon without the underwater materia, KOTR, mimic (or mime or whatever) etf. I think the strongest summon I had was Bahamut Zero and after trying for hours and KNOWING I was close to killing it I finally did it. I was so fuckign ecstatic and full of myself that I turned off the console without saving my progress. I was heartbroken but after a little while I felt fine cause I knew I did it and didnt need to prove it to anyone. Besides your reward for killing Emerald was lame anyway. You got an Earth Harp which you could trade for master materia but at that late point in the game it doesn't matter.
>there will never be another game to capture that magic like star fox
Killing every boss in Dark Souls with a rapier mainhand/parrying dagger offhand only build.
Now that sounds easy enough, but by the time you're at Kalameet the fully upgraded rapier is doing about 30 damage a hit against him. Kalameet has 5400 hp.
I really, really didn't expect what started out as a fun idea to be so damn tough, but I eventually bested that fucker.
Manus without a shield or the Silver Pendant (I don't know why I skipped that though really) was also a pain, but he wasn't shit compared to Kalameet with that sort of damage and no shield.
Completing the Insane in the Membrane achievement in WoW (getting "The Insane" title in other words).
Basically you have to kill the guards of a neutral town for a longass time, which are pretty tough, to raise your reputation with a group of hostile pirates until they eventually become friendly.
In the process you make four factions despise you.
Then, you've got to raise those four factions from hatred to the very best reputation, exalted. Without making those pirate fellas dislike you again.
Plus a load of other bullshit.
Wouldn't say exciting or even the best, but it's one I have an image for.
>using the gay green particle effect shield
>using a gay mask
Try doing ng+7 SL1 runs like a non-tryhard, anon
artorias has the most sequence based fucking attack pattern ever
he literally does 3 swings on the ground, goes back, goes for a lunge spin and repeats
fucking get good scrub
ornstein just randomly switches patterns and has way more than 3 movement sets
Marie 300% in skullgirls
it was worth for all gallery art
