Make sure you buy Unite Guts and Unite Spring as soon as possible. They're your bread and butter and I still question why such core abilities would be locked behind an ingame paywall.
I tried the game's demo and wasn't impressed at all. Is it actually very fun, or is it just really quirky.
Y-you mean with currency I find in-game right?
Yes. It was a poor choice of words on his part.
Also take your time: There's a lot of collectables and secrets, but don't worry too much about the Platinum Coins because they don't do anything special.
The game will suddenly just "click" for you and it'll go from a 7-8/10 game to a 10/10 game that you might put over 100 hours into.
It gets fucking addicting and there's A LOT of shit to unlock and find.
Don't drop it until you reach the 4th or 5th operation, that's when the game really becomes great. I didn't enjoy operations 2 and 3 very much, although the intro is pretty strong.
If you're not afraid of spoilers, or after going through the game by yourself, I highly recommend watching chipcheezum's let's play, it's fucking crazy the amount of shit that will completely fly by you on your first, second, hell every playthrough. There's an insane amount of hidden collectable shit, secret technics and what not
It's the best Platinum game IMO
>People say Revengence is best platinum game
>parry to win
>5 hour story
>not much replay-ability
>not much depth to the combat system
Wonderful 101 is almost better in every way
OP here, ChipCheezum is my jam, I watched one of their videos and was VERY interested in the game, which is why I ordered it in the first place.
The Wii U I will play it on arrives this Friday as well. It'll definitely be the first thing I pop in.
>Find out the hammer can be used to pound secrets out of the ground
You're going to have a lot of fun with it man, it may seem hard or confusing at first but once you understand the game it becomes so goddamn satisfying and fun
It's one of the more underrated games in my opinion
>Played through the game multiple times
>Still missing one or two wonder toilets for the bottlecap
Do I have to do that one secret mission with the toilets on all 3 difficulties for it to count or am I just overlooking something
I'm sorry, were you trying to draw a hammer/claw/bomb?
Other way round
Never had too much trouble with bomb
weapon isn't actually that bad, it's just that it's hard to understand why it's useful at first
i-i liked her personality The team just wouldn't feel right without someone like that
Black had even less camera time
His entire script is like 3 words
I really wish that they had fleshed yellow/black/white out more and not just have blue/green/red/pink be the main characters
It's a game that you really have to take your time with. Give the demo an hour, just explore the menus, read everything, experiment, and git gud. Don't rush through it. It's a game that rewards you the more time you put into it.
How? The shockwave can hit them from a mile away. Did you just never use the hammer?
Eh, I thought the boss fights were piss easy.
Took me no more than 3 tries on the toughest one.
The game is great, but I wish the cutting mechanic had more variety in terms of potential usage in combat.
Maybe I'd like it more on higher difficulties.
You're right about w101 and VJ, but I'm actually waiting for Bayo on the wii u, so I can't comment on that one. I'd definitely rank MGR as a "low-tier platinum/clover game" and a mid-high-tier game".
>I'd definitely rank MGR as a "low-tier platinum/clover game" and a mid-high-tier game".
Yup, that's exactly what I think
Even on higher difficulties like Very Hard and Revengance It's still a pretty easy game.
I just finally managed to do the goddamn Hard Epilogue Khakoo-regah where you have to punch out fight fucking Darth Vader without getting hit once. I must have wasted two hours at least, goddamn I was gettin pissed. I don't even wanna know what the 101 Hard version is like
Here's what you wanna do.
>Ukemi. Get the timing down and you'll lose no health unless you get crushed
>Hero Time. This is NECESSARY if you wanna do Hard+ Khakoo-Regah and it gives you breath time to figure out what you need to do
>Mine Bomb. This is good to hold onto combos and to finish off those robots that get pissed off and invincible and rage. The mines will still damage them
>Speed Charge. Pretty fucking necessary. Makes your Unite Gauge charge faster
>Unite Charge. For those times an enemy is blocking your Unite Draw Line. Just hold A to increase it. Fairly useful.
I haven't used many others and I've yet to unlock the final Slot, but Double Power is shit. You will kill enemies faster if you don't get interrupted, but since this game judges you on your comboes, it will most likely not net you Platinums
>tfw getting that bottlecap for 10 unite morphs in a combo
Fucking greatest feel.
Means i never have to try that goddamn hard again
Most likely a cut plot point. It's well known that if Kayima is directing it, eventually someone has to step and tell him "that's enough," or else the game would never come out.
>bet you don't throw enemies
Hammer does shit all for damage and is only useful for the turtles which you can also fight with guts and not need the hammer at all
You responded to the wrong dude
saur is a better player but chipcheezum has god like LPs.
And before you go
He doesn't do them for money, he's good at all the games he plays, he knows what the fuck he's talking about, and he can be pretty funny
If you use a large Claws and just spin into them, they have a super high chance of freezing and go down easy. Dragons are the easiest big monsters in the game cause you're untouchable while you're pulling open it's defence. I hate the fucking claw things that go really fast because they also have a hard to see defence stance that breaks anything you throw at them
Man I have yet to find a more awesome final boss, he has four phases that somehow manage to really change between each and when you reach the final two or hell the final unite morth
I somehow fucked it up the first time, no joke
There's a reason it looks like Jello, blunt attacks like a punch or a stomp will effectively be blocked by sharp slices with a sword or claw will still kick your ass
Thought that was a nice touch
>mfw fucking vorkken can block anything
vorkken really is better.
they talk through cutscenes
i use those versions because i usually have played the game, or i don't give a shit.
Yeah, I loved that.
I wish it applied to Vorkken's Guts!!
Goodness gracious, I really hope Platinum releases a new Viewtiful Joe game!
after mission 1 on 6a there is toilet if you jump down, Another toilet is found right after you recruit wonder black, where you have to jump down again. the 3rd missed toilet is in 7a
Golly gee, maybe they'll lend the IP to 'em!
I hope capcom dies and sells everything good to nintendo
Kamiya helped direct the dub, actually
I can't believe the whole thing about them possibly endangering themselves when entering U-Form never really came up. Thought for sure that would be inevitable foreshadowing for the final boss or whatever.
>tfw unlocked everyone except for Wonder-Future (who I heard is a handicap?) and Bayonetta
Currently trying to get all Platinums on Easy. It's kind of annoying how much weaker everything is.
>tfw never played Bayonetta
>tfw it'll be included with Bayo 2
Platinum is based as fuck. I'm glad they included the first. I will buy Bayo 2 day one.
I enjoy these games a lot but I'm apparently bad at them. Consolation prizes in W101 and Stone medals in Bayonetta. ;_; I try to git gud.
Learn how to stun enemies in W101. Swamp them with team attack until they stun or use Guts to block blunt attacks. When stunned, use a wonderful rising and then just whack the shit out of them in mid-air. When stunned you get 100 pts per hit as opposed to the normal 1.
That's as much as I can help with, I suck when it comes to Time and Damage rating. But I never get lower than Platinum for Combo. It's pretty easy once you have the knack.
I only have maybe two or three games that are exclusive to it that I like. Gonna need a few more games plus some more cross platforms and then I'll be happy. Looks like I'll get my wish though, with what's coming out for the WiiU.
Where as my 3DS I barely owned for a year and have like 15 games for it alreaady.
At least it's backwards compatible unlike SOME consoles these days.
I have no clue, it could probably go like DeSu or something, this was a really weird mash up
Me too or any concrete information would work, because
'its on chedule" does not really work after Duke and HL3
how many people here just gave up 90+ bottle caps in. i know i did
If anyone seriously needs to be instructed into buying Unite Guts and Unite Spring, they shouldn't be playing this game, to be honest.
As soon as you open the Wonderful Mart and you can read the description of items, it's clear that you should get both.
i got platinum on every level in very easy, nothing is going to stop me now
>Gives the Clover IPs and DMC to Platinum
>Gives all Megaman rights to Nintendo
>Gives everything else to the highest bidder
I did all of Operation 009 in one night, starting around 11PM.
It took me until 4AM to beat it and the epilogue only made me say "why isn't this over yet"? I didn't get adequate rest for two days and I had to work in six hours. And it was still worth it. Playing it again on Easy mode, finding the Wonders I missed and getting platinums and golds all day errday.
I'm amazed I got it the first time. If I saw this I'd have laughed non-stop.
>Wonder Blue is Thomas from Regular Show
Now I will never not think about his Valiantium(sp) blade
>Wonder Black voiced by Kris Zimmerman
I was not expecting that.
>Laurence Nelson is Sam Giddeon
I knew there was a reason I liked his voice
>Vijounne dress on Bayonetta
The final leg of it is very long.
It also leads straight into the epilogue and credits, both decently long themselves.
Tbh the whole of it isn't actually that fun to replay on higher difficulties, once the hype goes away 009-A is just a long shooting section where you don't even get to use your own health bar and most of 009-B is the same
You're right. But it's epic in the true meaning of the world the first time you do it and every now and then. It really is over the top, even considering it's a Platinum's game.
>trying to platinum rank it
>do all the regular fights flawlessly but get hit on that vorkken ship flying part
>have to restart from the beginning of the entire mission for another shot and can't practice the ship flying part specifically
The boss fights really should have been divided into missions/sections as well.
009-b especially frustrated me on hard and 101% because they just went with all or nothing in the glider, glider+naginata and boomerang sections
it just ended up being annoying
of the word*
of course I'd fuck up that sentence...
Anyway, it's a great game. I wish I could play through it all with the Pro Controller, but those segments where you have to look at the Gamepad screen are a pain with it, since you have to either look at the Gamepad screen while using the other controller, like a retard, or press "-" and make that small screen appear on the bottom of the TV screen, which sucks.
>009-C is hours long
He's actually not that bad. You're going to rock the actual fights and then get your rank tanked by flying sections and the last phase that plays similarly to 007-B
no. It's not really that hard, but its fucking amazing.
You can't do that when you're playing it for the first time.
Because you're watching every cutscene, listening to every bit of dialogue, figuring out the boss patterns, and all dat.
on your first playthrough 009 is at least 3 hours long
>Unlike that game this one is good
>Unlike that game
I tried it because people kept naming it in W101 threads.
I was already bored during the intro then the basic combat system and the shitty helicopter fight were the last straw.
what you need is to stop reading this goddamn thread and play the game
How bout this
Shut your mouth. A Platinum game that is actually long is one of the best things that ever happened. I only wish other similar games would be as long and have so many shit to unlock...
Oh wait, I got a better comparison.
Its your guys vs this guy.
>he didn't get past the first boss
punching the bullets back at it in slow-mo, right?
How? The combat has lots of things to master and the enemy fights are always fun as fuck. Sure, it's no DMC or Bayonetta, combat-wise, but still lots of fun. There's tons to unlock.
You clearly misunderstood the mechanics, man.
I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you just went into it while distracted or in a bad mood or something. I really would recommend the game, you should give it another try!
>You can block the tail attacks
Oh fuck me right in the goddamn anus.
I thought it was sharp.
Next you'll tell me you can block the tail sweep from those bug enemies whatever they are
>Mfw watching chip's let's play
>Mfw all the shit I missed
>Mfw I didn't even know bigger whips could take off more armor at once
Enemy layouts never really branch out but they're a lot of fun to fight and learn about. Trying different strategies and stuff was really enjoyable personally.
I would actually say the variety of gameplay in the game hurts it a bit. Most of those shooting sections belonged in the trash, either that or developing them as well as the boxing would have been much better.
This is something that should be discussed, the camera in this game is really fucking crappy at some times. and i know that L and R zoom in and out but it still fucking sucks some times
>tfw getting the Wonderfully Wonderful Hero Bottlecap
what are you on about
hate digital or something?
it's still july
For all of their various flaws, I can't think of a single creator who's created more consistently satisfying games than Kamiya. There's just this wonderful, warm glow you get when you beat the game and see the big "THANK YOU" splash images he loves putting in all of his works.
Everyone loves a hero. Everyone loves you.
i myself use hammer for nearly everything breh
i am just posting combo vids from PhantoMResonancE
it's a custom block.
When an attack is coming if you press the left stick in the direction of the attack right before it hits you automatically do an attack with the unite morph you are on
I really don't get why people call Okami a LoZ game, the combat is nothing alike and is much more present in Okami.
Anyway, it's a great game even though the beginning is snail paced and the text "voices" can become grating.
so some of these bottle caps...
do i really have to complete every single secret mission on very easy, easy, normal, hard, and 101% hard. because come on, thats a little much. i like the game but thats just silly
>i never used any of the custom blocks
>>ending is clearly an homage to Getter Robo
Getter Robo didn't have a Moon Sized robot trying to blow up earth
>mfw recently rewatched TTGL
>mfw swear i saw this first time
How different is the movie compared to the anime, because i was thinking about just skipping to the end part and watching this
Wait, is drawing on the gamepad faster?
the movie differs from the anime at two parts:
*after Kamina is dead to before fighting the spiral kins
*after the guys go to space to fight the Anti Spiral (the moon destruction changes from 1 million humans to "humans get space flight")
granted I skipped the shitty as fuck earth arc when Rossiu is a dick
all of operation 009 actually
Stun, stun, stun.
There are two ways to inflict a stun.
>use the X attack a bunch of times, you'll hear a clashing sound
>Unite Guts an attack, blue stars will appear above the enemy
When you inflict a stun, use a Wonderful Rising.
Just look how fucking quick he unleashes the bomb. You can't do that with the stick even with Speed Liner and the L trick. You'd have to git really really gud at it I imagine though.
you only need to do SECRET MISSIONS
as in NOT Kahko Regahs (they are no on Easy and Very easy anyway) and NOT an entire level -- you can complete secret mission, make sure it saved, do a note somewhere that you did level X on difficulty Y and then you can quit
boss level don't have secret missions and even some regular levels don't have secret mission
it's easier than it sounds
it is still somewhat a chore, i used it practice with Wonder Goggles and Kamiya (DAT one hit death)
Oh boy, here we go.
Pic related is about where I am now. I'm going to power through it, thoguh.
>plat or higher
Do not tell me there is a Pure Plat trophy
relying on Unite Charger to make your morphs all the time is definitely bad
i say one should unequip it and try to play without for a while to learn how to do the right sizes by actually drawing
Charge does useful but misusing it will make you scrubby
draw AWAY from enemies on a clear land
but that might be problematic if you're surround by spikes or lava or something, then i concede, use Charge
or you could JUMP and do the morph in the air so that your people won't touch hazard on the ground
Launcher and cannon are unique gun skills you unlock later. Gun doesn't conform to sizes the way all the other weapons do.
Yes. To get a PP trophy every medal most be PP, which means all 3 merits being PP. Any missed KRs or Secret missions also means no PP. They're specifically for flawless runs.
fucking fighting those 2 turtles and fuck fighting those 2 dragons
i always just bitch out and unite big on those fuckers
there's something we can all agree on, Fryman get on that Wonder Carl drawing
Huh, y'know it's weird. I'm pretty sure if you do that it takes you back to the Menu screen, BUT, I know for a fact that if you just turn the game off, you get to start where it auto saved in that Op last, because my game froze up one time and when I turned it back on I started at the exact end where a mission was
>this boss battle
It's easy as shit after a few times, but holy fuck it's so good.
it depends, i know what you're talking about because about 50% of the time when i select Retry from last save it takes me to the menu, i think you just need to make sure that the game auto saves during a mission.
this game has some great jams man.
I got my shit kicked in the first couple of fights
Also don't know why this stripper has the power to change Blue into a dog when she's like an underwater whore or something
My first Pure Platinum
I was playing 001-A to get some collectibles I'd missed, but then stopped in the middle of it to do a boss fight because I decided to go for Platinum Paragon. I restarted the boss fight because I got hit and the mission it took me back to was in 001-A. The Retry option just sort of confuses me and is vague in where it's going to take you.
Also I hate how you need to complete the level for the new collectibles you picked up to count. You can't grab it then operation select. Unless you can and I'm retarded.
>getting the drill of iron bottle cap
Better switch to very easy anon.
that confused me too, i get that its like a polymorph spell or whatever but she's into the underwater squid scene, why a dog?
here's a heads up, whenever you're going for the Drill of iron bottle cap you can freeze the lava with unite bomb
I know Goggles' secret bottle cap is Punch Out; requires you to beat a giant Robot Battle without getting hit once. I believe it's because the Secret Mission on the epilogue calls for just that, but more likely than not, you won't be able to do it on your first try, and a death in the Khakoo-Regah counts as a Continue.
I have Drill but I don't remember what all I had to do. Google should have the answers
I feel like a complete tard. I got it though even though I had to wimp out to very easy.
>Tables turn starts playing
I love when that happens.
The one you are probably missing is called Punch-Out. You have to complete one of the boxing matches without taking damage.
>Wonder-Red (Emeritus) or Wonder-Captain
The ones you may have missed are Explorers, where you have to find an area very high up in the grassy area of 005-A, Drill of Iron, where you have to take out 50 enemies in 005-A, and Good in Tight Spaces, where you have to find all the pipes under the three bridges in 001-A.
I really wish this game got an official OST release.
>going for that bottle cap
>go through the entire level without getting a message
>clone Ohrowchee was my 50th kill
fucking love that theme.
it gets the blood pumping
yesterday when i was pure platinum-ing 004-A Vijouhne gave me so much shit
i got shitty Gold on combo points and screwed up restarting from previous checkpoint
as you can see i just gave up after that disaster
dog thing apparently is a reference to God Hand
Not him but I unlocked it today and haven't tried it yet
lets see those bottle cap collections, no excuses its easy to upload screen shots on wii u
That sounds horrifying.
And here I was thinking that hard mode doesn't even feel more difficult than medium because got good during my medium playthrough.
in unlocked everything and everyone a long time ago
i am intend to eventually platinum the whole thing (not full pure platinum though that's total autism)
> 101% hard
i haven't felt gap between hard and 101 at all, it felt extremely smooth
after platinum-ing some levels with ease, i even had to check if i am indeed on 101% hard
no slowdown on unite morph switching is not a problem at all because you will learn to switch morphs in less than half a second anyway by that time
the skill gap between normal and hard was extremely rough for me though
Take a look at some of these. He does them good, but dear god they're nightmares on the first try.
I got like 78. Not on Wii U. It's shit compared to yours anyways. I'll get that 101 one day, then I'll post it
>I have fully increased health and a single hit does a third
if you get hit AT ALL then you're not ready to up the difficulty
Or git gud with Ukemi to salvage your shit
healthbar should become completely irrelevant to you after a while
both in Bayo and W101 there are only three states of your healthbar:
full health: you're okay, no damage
you got hit, ukemi that shit!
you couldn't ukemi, go kill yourself and retry
of course there is no ukemi in Bayo but you get what i mean
also, remember that mission? yeah, good times, eh?
besides the camera, what else are some little things that bug the shit out of you?
for me its when i'm trying to fight/unite morph but there's a secret or civilians around and it won't work because they are in the way. then you gotta save the people or open the secret just to fucking unit morph
1. All camera problems in W101 are fixed by pressing L
2. If it doesn't work see p. 1
learn to keep track of your leader, use the circle on the ground under him and other indicators
>All camera problems in W101 are fixed by pressing L
no no no no.... The game is fucking awesome, no one is saying that its not. But the camera in this game is very fucking crappy alot of times. i know that L zooms out and R zooms in but it still doesn't fix the choppy camera at times
If you're talking about gamepad sections, I agree, those are garbage.
In the main gameplay sections it works fine though, unless the battle arena is too big and there are tanks then yeah fuck.
