Whoops, there goes my controller. Right out the window.
please don't tell me this is considered hard nowadays
Worst part of the game.
Not gonna lie, I was pretty shit at Jak 2, but this escort mission pissed me off the most. Made me take a few days off from playing it after doing the mission a bunch of times.
Also that one Sonic stage on the Ark Colony that takes around 10 minutes and has you reversing gravity and shit
>Have to commit the entire stage to memory because any wrong turn or failing to kill an enemy within 3 or so seconds is instant death
>Finally make it through
>You're thrown straight into the last boss fight and given zero time to work out any mechanics before you'll be inevitably killed
>Don't get to start back at the last boss, have to start back at WELCOME TO THE MACHINE
The fade was fun. Especially mages asunder when those idiots used fire based magic while you strategically used burning man. I had one enemy who actually killed himself because of that.
This whole chapter on MN.
I don't have a 360 so I settled for shit.
You can't be serious.
I only lost my first try on this boss. This one is nowhere near
The process of getting to the challenge shouldn't have been harder than the challenge itself.
>the entire goddamn level has metal for flooring
>can't hear anyone over the constant engine/boiler hum
>but if you stand up for even a single second, your footsteps will bring the entire party right to your doorstep
God damn I hate this level
Boggly Woods, Chapter 4, the beginning island part of Chapter 5, Running through Hooktail Castle numerous times for side quests, including getting Ms. Mowz and getting the 2nd upgrade for Partners, and the search for General White are the things that immediately pop up in my head. Admittingly, the only thing that annoyed me with my first playthrough is Boggly Woods. Subsequent playthroughs however have really showed that there is a lot of backtracking, and without a way to immediately go back to Rogueport, it was really annoying to do.
Still solid gameplay and fun to play through, but it is annoying that it has to rely on backtracking so much.
I didn't post it because I got stuck on it.
I posted it because a lot of people I know got stuck on it.
I was already an SMT vet by the time I played 4 so it took me just 1 retry. Minotaur wasn't too hard either since I had 3 Bufu-casters already.
You don't like big lengthy dungeons?
I mean its called the DEEP roads. Would you have preferred a few waves of enemies and then the boss? Followed by a cinematic cutsene and your obligatory achievement? You would like that wouldn't you, you faggot.
I actually got through it surprisingly quickly on my second run, but I still remember that first time. Holy shit, did it feel like it was just continuing on forever. It's not even really that hard, it's just slow and tedious.
I think in general getting the boat and having the whole world opened up to you made it confusing where you were supposed to go. Still kind of nice that you could explore at your leisure.
>finding this level hard
nigga just enter through the spider vents and you're there, the guards won't even see you. it's the easiest level in the game
Maybe I'm a casual or just an idiot, but the entire
second half of this game was really difficult for me
because half the time I had no idea what the hell
I was supposed to be doing.
Still a really fucking good game, though. The SNES-era RPGs were GOAT.
Rusty Bucket Bay wasn't the easiest place to navigate, but it wasn't so hard that I hated it. I actually kind of enjoyed the challenge. As for Click Clock Wood, I like it on the virtue that I finally could get to it. You know that feeling when you've been staring at something which is so close, yet so far away? As a kid I used to try over and over again to get into that level, it was driving me crazy that I couldn't just jump up and get in there. Just being in Click Clock Woods felt orgasmic.
Yeah, they were some of the best around. I really didn't appreciate them enough at the time. Hindsight is always 20/20.
The difficulty spike was completely unexpected.
My brother and I were doing a co-op playthrough and got so stuck on this we ended up looking at a walkthrough for the first and only time ever on a game we played together.
WOAH WOAH WOAH
>climb the tree all the way to the top
>boss pushes me off
>climb tree again
Assuming you don't know that you can plug a controller in port 2 and win through making Player 2 do nothing,this was some bullshit.
Damn, you got it for a good price. I forgot how much I paid for definitely more so than that at the time. Still, regardless of what I paid I loved this game. I make a note of playing it at least once a year.
>lose once at the pipe mini stage
>have to go through hopping on the boats all over again
it's a special kind of hell
>Just barely beat this fucker, whole party in tatters
>"Wow that was tough, but fun"
HAHA JUST KIDDING FAGGOT NOW FIGHT TWO MORE WITH NO HEAL BREAK WHILE THEY CONSTANTLY SPAWN ADDS
The game gets much easier once you have shit like Cover, but those early bosses, this and the griffon, you just have to know every move and react perfectly.
Threw my controller after trying this for probably an hour and a half.
Took like a week break and tried it again. Got it first try. Same sort of thing happens with Dark Souls for me.
Any of you guys play pic related? I've never seen people talk about it on /v/ but it was probably
the best puzzle game I've ever played, if not the most difficult.
>have to move very slowly
>fuck up most of times
Damn, I hated that part of the Barren Temple.
funny how this guy is probably the hardest boss in the game.
LO's battle system is weird. it's like the random battles are hard as fuck at first but then once you level 2-3 times they are medium difficulty and give NO xp
I remember reading about it in my copy of Nintendo Power. Got me really fucking pumped and begged my mom to buy it for me. How old were you at the time? I was just a little guy so I had no experience with RPGs. Around 8 or 9 I believe. Took me a long fucking time to beat it, given how inexperienced I was.
I have a vague recollection of fighting the queen in Buck Bumble being hard as shit.
It wasn't about being good or not, the whole level was buggy as shit with its pachinko physics.
The worst part is how easy the rest of the game is. No way you will be ready for this.
Ah i was maybe 11 or 12. I had only started getting into Zelda and RPGs so playing it was an extremely pleasant surprise. A few years ago, I emulated Soul Blazer and Terranigma. Some of the best experiences I had in games.
Yeah had to grind just a tad for this one, the area before this fight made it easier to grind for XP tho.
Fucking GTA:SA Zero's RC plane mission where you have to kill some guys and then fly back before running out of fuel.
I've still yet to play Terranigma, I really should download a rom and fire it up one day. I've been meaning to get around to it, but I've been distracted by other games lately.
kinda the same for me.
first time i tried it, it took about an hour before i just gave up.
came back to it the next day, and did after a couple tries. now i dont have any trouble with that part.
its easier to take it slow and backtrack if necessary. so much easier than just trying to go straight up as fast as you can.
I like the Deep Roads overall, just not the layout of that part specifically. There's so much backtracking involved if you want to find everything for some side quests like the one where you find the hidden cache, Asunder and Topsider's Honnor
Pic related was also really difficult all the way through, if your definition of difficult is 'you have to farm for two hours every time you get to a new area'.
How is this motherfucker never in any Casual Filter threads?
The Hookshot-ing sequence to get to him (and then back to him if you die) alone is enough to drive me crazy.
Replayed it the other day on the Trilogy collection. The mines themselves weren't bad (although fighting nothing but Pirates and constantly having to switch beams was tedious), but fuck that one gap where you have to jump toward a moving zoomer to grapple onto it, then swing half a mile to a mushroom. And if you miss, you HALF to walk through Phazon all the way to the start of the room.
Also, trying to get back up to the shortcut elevator from the mines to Magmoor Caverns takes so long that you may as well go all the way around.
I let my friend borrow my copy of Dark Souls on PS3 and he quit before even killing Capra Demon, says that game is too hard for him.
before i knew real strategy and types and such, She destroyed me. relied alot on luck
Admit, these guys where tough as shit on your first run of the game.
>the only way people find it hard is that Game Grump's had a hard time with it
Fuck E.E. was annoying as hell throughout that whole segment.
My older brother told me that there was an easter egg where you could knock her out and lay on top of her and then call Otacon and he would freak out at you, but I could never get it to work.
>Also, trying to get back up to the shortcut elevator from the mines to Magmoor Caverns takes so long that you may as well go all the way around.
It might just be a placebo, but I think loading the game from a USB hard drive makes the load times faster.
Boring and tedious as shit with an ugly artstyle
ironically, I did enjoy Twilight Town despite the amount of backtracking, but I think the only reason I liked it was because of the spooky and Doo_liss
No, I mean, the room to get to the Magmoor elevator was a bunch of platforms over a Phazon pit, a bunch of Morph Ball tunnels and Spider Ball tracks, and space pirates that shot you off of them when you were sure that the room was cleared. It took fucking forever to get all the way up to the top of the room.
And I have the game on a hard drive, and the lack of loading times is fucking fantastic. I can't wait to get to Prime 3, since the loading in that was my biggest problem with the game.
>mountains of health
>instakill attack that literally takes 1.5 seconds
>can only escape that attack if you teleport
>can outrun you unless you use haste
>if you're not careful with your aggro you can end up fighting 3+ at once
Fuck Magicka's difficulty curve in general
>2 attacks per turn
Fusion Dragon used Break!
Fusion Dragon used Outer Space!
I know it's the final boss but still, it kicked the shit out of me more than anything else in the game.
like a final boss should.
>"Okay I'll leave the fucker where it is for the moment"
>10 levels after
>"I think now I'm strong enough!"
>10 levels after
>"Surely know it will be the time I win!"
>10 levels after
In a game full of tedious fetch quests, this one rules them all.
>mfw i got up the whole way without falling once on my very first try
>didn't realize it was an accomplishment until the achievement popped up
I'm wondering how they can make it worse for KH3
>Now introducing a new feature where you have to sing the KH intro songs and more
in japaneseinfront of yor parents.
Finally putting that cam to use.
Whoever thought this was good should be flogged in public.
I wish this game's dialogue was skippable.
I enjoy the combat and puzzles but can't bear to press "A" over and over once more.
"That part" for me comes up every time there's a dialogue.
>HEY GUYS WHAT IF WE JUST SHOVED A MANDATORY BARELY FUNCTIONAL MINIGAME RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE GAME
>Golden Sun complainers
just hold B, you fucking retards
>tfw never beat the game because of this
I have it on my Wii U now but I've been busy with other games.
>finally beat Saturos and Menardi for the first time
>holy shit I actually did it
>only alive members are Isaac and Mia
>suddenly they merge and I see a fight screen pop up
I wasn't ready for that shock.
>Having trouble with any minigame in IX
The skipping was the only one that was remotely hard.
Strangely, I can handle this one once I figured out that I don't even look at the screen
and know the placement of the "fuck you" notes at the end
Even when I pause I can never get >>282701789
My brain never allowed me to remember the notes.
Any map that makes you spend 30 turns throwing Geo Blocks around while mages snipe at you.
Hey i just beat this game yesterday
Wasnt very hard tho. Only those fission metroids were a pain in the ass. Pictur unrelated
hey bro, I see one of your unions died. Mind if I borrow it?
I have never struggled in a Grandia until this fucker
I'd been playing for so long I figured I must have beat the high score and let myself die. I was wrong.
>mfw I cleared this first time without falling and got the achievement
>mfw it really is half the game
The Train station part of Chapter 6
The backtracking in Chapter 7
>a minute = forever
have you even tried using the hold B thing? on TLA it speeds up the text skipping a lot
you know what, what the fuck ever
enjoy not touching GS ever again
Pachinko sucks, but removing features is beyond retarded.
No, as it is, a casual player can simply play up to the seventh level in each world and be finished with the game. Only someone who truly wants to complete the game would have to worry about all the other tasks. It should definitely fix up the controls if anything. I mean they work, but they could be so much smoother.
The Tethe'alla dungeons all sucked ass. Prove me wrong.
This was one of the most painfully boring bosses I've ever sat through.
They addressed that, in the achievement patch. There's a new checkpoint and coach doesn't go down as quickly. Honestly, those burning cylindrical nets you need to jump around on are more of a pain in the ass, since they're so easy to fail on.
Can you read, you mongoloid?
I said the part where you stop at the train station to lower the bridge was the annoying part.
>Waiting for Sony to deliver anything good from their Classics section
I'm still waiting on the PS1 Tales games.
For me, THAT PART was when the fucking dog had the evil scepter. It wasn't even that bad a part of the game, but I remember vividly thinking, "Oh Christ, this game still isn't over."
I speed run super meat boy, and the kid levels are fucking horrendous. Only levels that compare to it are the Bandage girl levels. Not even dark Hell or Rapture compares to the kid levels.
on the subject lets talk about how to ruin a stratergy game ending.
by making the final mission winnable by only one real strategy, because fuck Caluder and his BS CO powers of healing units and shit. There is one strategy to beat this level
Roof battle directly after wiegraf battle
First Zodiack fight
The entire first disc of FF9
Temple of the Ancients
Bundt Cake if it's your first time playing
Yeah, I loved it too, but a lot of it was just unnecessarily drawn it to ridiculous lengths. I haven't replayed it since its release (mostly for that very reason), but I vaguely remember that, in order to get a boat, you had to:
>go to a neighboring kingdom to get permission to take it
>Participate in some festival
>Take the King's shit-ass son hunting
>Spend hours tracking down a dragon
>Go visit a Time Lord in a celestial observatory or some shit
>Go through a dungeon to get some item for the Time Lord
>Finally get on your fucking boat
It was insanity at times.
All I remember was this part being bad but I remember none of what made it bad or anything containing it
Just that "it" was bad, whatever it was
Did I somehow erase the memories?
>Not liking the Temple of the Ancients
Demon Wall ain't shit if you go fast and you go hard and the puzzles were neat.
Baking a cake for Gourmet Guy
Any Jr.Troopa fight.
This was a challenge just staying awake.
And a lot of the other missions at the end of the game.
Didn't you have to log out to look for the answers around the amusement park?
At least in 1 when the school was locked up you could look for the answer and then immediately go back to the same section with megaman.
I found 3 much easier than 1 after getting the tempo of the song down. It's pretty much just repeating the pattern if you can keep in time.
Did anyone else have trouble with the aerial missions in general? I struggled with Furiae and Manah, and I can't even touch the jets in the bonus free mission.
The first section with the firefly is shit but this part is just straight up bullshit.
Only thing google gives me is aliens
Git gud, bitch nigga.
Daily reminder that Ulillillia now has a PS3 and has been working on Disgaea clone power leveling. Too bad he decided to leave Youtube because of the Google+ bullshit and said he won't be coming back until they remove that requirement, since it took off some functionalities for him.
The Ocean levels in Pac-Man World 2 in general but this one pisses me off pretty much
>Longest level in the game
>Can't speed up or slow down like in the earlier levels
>Fruit locations are randomized since you need to kill enemies to get them
>Distance fog can make it easy to miss Checkpoints and tokens
>Most grueling Time Trial level since if you die you have to start over from the beginning
>Is a bitch to 100%
The only saving grace that this level has is that there's no Pac-Dots to collect
Only time in my fucking life I abused a savestate to make a checkpoint, and I hate myself for doing it
dude, the last boss in the second game was WAY more bullshit
i mean, its fucking doom dragon, the has FUCKING 3 turnes , he has an ability to piss of your djinns, another ability that can instakill your entire team easily
>fight him the first time
>he lost his 2 heads
>gets 3 turns
>doom dragon uses djinn blast
>no djinns availbe for you, fucker!
>doom dragon uses cruel ruin
>my team has like 10% hp now after that attack
>pls for the love of god dont use another cruel ruin
>doom dragon uses cruil ruin
>entire teams dies
>imagine the dragon laughing his ass off while shouting "GET GOOD FAGGOT!"
>It's a giant rat
>How hard could it be
I come 3 hours later to tell you that you are full of shit. It`s not that the fight is hard, it`s the fact that you can get your save fucked in an unwinnable situation and get stuck there with fucknothing, so you better restart from the beggining boy. Code veronica is filled with moments like that, switching around between characters fucking up your inventory like it`s nothing or the retarded hulk chase that makes no sense.
I hate how the Hunter Metroids change your camera angle
>kill omega pirate
>rush out in my usual "I have too many energy tanks to care about your shit" attitude
>3 hunter metroids and 2 fission spawn
getting gangrapped and losing direction
>lose 5 energy tanks
>only escape was my last powerbomb
This and them fucking amoebas
Nothing, NOTHING compared to the headless hearseman.
Srsly fuck the dullahan
>new status ailment
>you have no dis-rage
>your party ends up killing themselves
I have no idea how I killed him, it just happened, so I'm not sure if he was hard or if I was lucky.
>Being too stupid to figure out Boggly Woods
I got stuck there my first play through but steamrolled it every time afterwards. AND you get Glitz Pit immediately afterwards.
Only real shit part of TTYD was the first area
b-but you just made me d-
And yet I still kept coming back to this repetitive game like a WoW addict.
>finish Alexei and that other winged demonfaggot with relative ease
>stuck on that fucking worm in the tunnel for weeks now
7th Saga was unusually difficult because the localization messed some stuff up, though. I couldn't find why they decided it was a good idea to do it after a quick look, but it's pretty unusual for a game to be made harder than the original when translated to english.
>Bitching about Doom Dragon.
>Not about Dullahan.
Somebody needs to play that again and get assraped by summoned Charon over and over. Endgame boss is a joke compared to that
FUCK YOU AND YOUR EDGY ASS SNOUT YOU PIG SHIT NIGGER.
>took 3 years to beat DD as a kid
>had to git gud to finally overcome
>to this day cannot beat dullahan without tactical summon rushing (or hours and hours of wonder bird grinding)
>that Toth quest where you are supposed to look for a woman with scissors
>that Anthony love quest where you look for a woman on a camel
I almost went insane until I learned they are in later areas
>not Yoshi's Fruit Carnival or whatever the fuck
Ouroboros is a much bigger problem than that guy. I seem to remember people usually thinking that it was a fight you were supposed to lose the first time you run into him. SMT bosses are all managable with enough preparation, though. It's one of those series that really makes it tough on you before you learn the system.
All I remember about this game from my youth was running around in a circle and shooting homing missiles.
>not liking the Deep Roads
nigga that shit was a fucking adventure. entering the deep roads actually felt like you were embarking on something big. it actually felt like you were getting deeper and deeper into something, and coming out of it to finish the quest was satisfying.
you're a faggot
>Rekt my shit on MN
How the fuck did she still wreck you when you have already beaten her twice (or was it three times?) if you're playing on MN. Either you're a fucking idiot or full of shit.
>"SAMUSSSSSSS YOU CANT GO THERE YET YOU NEED X RAY"
k finally got that fucking x ray, now let's walk all the way back

ffffffuck this game
