Downloaded the demo off the psn network tonight actually. It's pretty cool it's like a god of war tenchu style. Your dude has his own flair and it's fun to play. Easy to get into too. A friend and are actually going to get the real game tomarrow.

edit- the graphics kick arse too

Yeah I'm recovering from a solid day of beer and Ninja Gaiden Sigma. What a fun game, and damn addicting.

Sigma inspired me to go out and play Ninja Gaiden Black.

I'm on like the 3rd level..hard ****ing game.

Ninja Gaiden is one of the hardest and most satisfying games I have played.

Ninja Gaiden/Black/Sigma is NOT hard. It's simply a game where the enemies have just as good a chance to beat you as you have to beat them--a level of balance that almost no game has ever bothered to implement. Usually a game will tilt the game's balance toward the player: not so here.

Devil May Cry 3 is a genuinely hard game, just because you're engaged in a war of attrition with the damn game simply to progress. It's extremely unfair.

Isn't Sigma simply a remake of Black?

It's a great game. Best game for the PS3 so far IMHO.

Yes and no. It's the same basic game from NG and NGB, but with numerous changes, additions, renovations, and expansions. Check out the reviews on IGN and Gamespot; they detail a partial list of the changes between Sigma and the Xbox versions.

When 8 ninjas are constantly hitting me and dropping bombs that aren't blockalbe it becomes a *****.

I'm on level 5 right now and can't seem to get past the Fiends and the worm..thing. I might just need to go back and buy like 8 potions or something.

Blocking is overrated. I have never encountered a need to block regular enemies in Ninja Gaiden. Ever. You should ALWAYS be on the offense, even if you're evading attacks; throw shurikens at someone.

Speaking of shurikens, the explosive shurikens you're talking about can be countered simply by rolling a split second before they explode; the rolling action will nullify the explosion, doing no damage and not sending you flying.

Huh? Chapter 5 doesn't have any of the worm bosses.

I actually find blocking and doing the counters pretty useful. I just picked up the nunchuk blade things. I still prefer the sword though.

The flail is pretty nice, but don't get too comfortable with it. It's a spot weapon, but not something you'd want to use full-time.

Same with counters; nice in a pinch, but there are enemies out there that counters are useless with, therefore you need to know how to do more than block and wait for someone to make the mistake of attacking you.

There are 19 up from 16 in the Xbox version.

You know, if you guys are really having trouble with this game, I suggest you check out the videos on this site. (http://www.iberiansngrealm.com/)

All of those are easy. The tentacle thing is probably the easiest boss in the game, to the point where you encounter two or three of them as regular enemies a few chapters down the road.

Awesome game, the Ninja Gaidens never dissapoint.

NG3 for the NES is still the best though :sidelol:

Motorcycle things? The blob guys are easy. Just use your magic (whatever it's called) and jump and just start whacking his tentacles off. I used the jump and Y (where he dashes through the air) move alot (in general really).

I'm currently on 7 at this big demon ***** who takes half your life in one hit with her thighs. It sucks.

ch. 7 is going well, yet another long chapter...great, and impossible ***** lies at the end again. ch. 5 was weird, it took like 5 minites with that chick.

Maybe it is Chapter 9..I dunno..:lol:

Are you talking about the one that throws rocks and **** with wings? The one in the huge hall like area? If that's the one..I don't know. I'm on her now and going to run through it again (no potions atm where I saved).

The boss you two are having trouble with is called Alma. She's been legendary for giving people trouble, even though I think she's easy as hell...

Check out the site I linked before for a video on how to beat her.

By now, you should have the Dragon Sword at level 2. Use that.

I used the double swords to beat her last night. Of course I had four elixirs but what I did was use the jump, direction with analog stick and triangle attack to knock her down and stun her. When she's down beat the **** out of her with combos that start with triangle.

Double swords? You must be playing the actual Sigma I guess? I'm just playing the original one. I think they are "roughly" pretty much the same though.

Although duel weild would be nice.

Sigma's been expanded and elaborated upon from the Xbox originals. There really isn't much of a comparison between the two, except to say that the basic game is the same. But there really is a difference between Sigma and the Xbox versions, and it's worth it to play Sigma even if you've played the Xbox versions. (This is coming from someone who bought and played both Xbox version.)
