  1. I’ve started putting my games in covers, just to give them some protection. I thought it might be nice to have a resource thread for game protectors so we have a one stop shop for all your cover needs. So far I have the following: 10mm CD covers - pack of 200, £3.99 https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00VM0223A/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Will protect standard CDs but won’t cover thicker or double disk games. Plastic is pretty thin and they’re a super snug fit, which is cool but you have to learn to put them in otherwise you can split them trying to force it Just bought these 14 mm DVD covers - pack of 200 is £4.99 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/14mm-DVD-CASE-WRAP-PROTECTIVE-CASE-COVER-25-MICRON-DVD-CASE-WRAPPER-200-PACK/192431089232?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 nothing to say on these yet, will see when they arrive. Would like people’s thoughts on larger CD covers, NES, Famicom, Megadrive, SNES etc. As well as other options for CD and DVD. Also, options for like cart only.

    Are you doing DMD difficulty without using Gold Orbs? I’ve used loads trying the get through so far I’ve switching between DMD stages, playing Multiplayer missions and trying to S rank Human difficulty. Basically I do a DMD mission use a couple of Gold Orbs and then try MP missions to get stylish rating from people to get my Orbs back. S ranking on Human seemed pretty straight forward, I did most on my first attempt, however mission 10 is proving to be a real problem. Must have tried it like 6-7 times now and still can’t get S. I’d borderline say it was broken. Not in a “I’ve got skills, so the game must be wrong” kinda way but more it seems completely lopsided compared to other missions. Other missions I just went through, chinned stuff and got an S but with M10 that’s not enough. You need to dissect the fights it seems in order to maximise points otherwise you’ll fail. You could say the latter is what you would expect but then that makes the other missions too easy.

    The blood spray to smoke is a Ninja skill, which you need to equip. Also you can only do it using a death blow from behind the opponent.

  5. Up to the boss of the 2nd area in Monster World IV, everyone should check it out, it’s great! Would be really good if Sega worked out a deal to get this on the MD mini, it’s too good a game to not have a Western release,

  7. Just spotted there was a English patch for Monster World IV. Definitely going to be starting on this, I had started playing in JPN, but will definitely switch over.

    I think you might be right... I think some enemies have too much health and last for ages, unnaturally so. I understand that DMD is harder and they get their posture buff part way but some take like hundreds of hits and it does turn into a bit of a slog. I guess if you’ve got crazy skills it could be quite cool. I actually just did the Trophy for mission 11 - no weapons. Quite cool to force you through with Royal Guard only, biggest pain is the waiting for an enemy to swing. On Human difficulty the boss falls pretty quickly. A full RG meter in devil trigger will take over half a bar on counter hit. I definitely don’t have the skills to play Dante. On lower difficulties I’m struggling to get S rank on his missions as I just can’t get the rating up. Probably just need to sit in the void for a while and figure some stuff out.

    Nice! Totally valid IMO. You have these tools/moves so why not use them to waste a troublesome enemy.

    I think one of the reasons this game is so hard is once you do get used to it, you can blitz it without the AI getting much of a look in. This is something you can’t do as easily in Souls/BB.

    Still feel like they’ve missed a massive opportunity by not making this multiplayer all the time. The cross over stuff is cool but in a game/genre considered to be “tough” the ability to be able to play with someone else would be huge. It wouldn’t be hard to do, just have more waves of enemies in multiplayer. I just did mission 7 DMD and I swear that mission was geared towards multiplayer difficulty. The boss (5 knights) took an absolute AGE to kill on my own. I’m talking 15-20 mins easy. I then repeated the mission in Devil Hunter to try and run into someone and ended up going right through nearly the whole mission with a guy and it was great fun. Would love a Monster Hunter System where you can choose your mission, difficulty and then just have someone jump in. I really think a full on multiplayer system would pull people in.

    Started back on this now that I’ve finished Sekiro. I’m super rusty, already forgotten how to do things. Started a DMD run, that’s gone take some Gold Orbs to finish! Which leads me to a few random musings... l mis-read the ex-provocation moves. I thought they were 300,000 each but it turns out they’re 3,000,000! Thats gonna take an absolute age to get! When I clicked on the move the game took me to the PSN store as I didn’t have the orbs (I had 300k) as they had 100,000 orbs for £1.69. That means to buy these 3 moves at 3 million each, it would cost you £152! Insane. Also, speaking of Gold Orbs, in my entire time of playing I’ve only received 3 Gold Orbs for getting rated as Stylish. 3! Now I know I’m not stylish but it takes MORE effort to mark someone as NOT stylish. I can’t believe people don’t just hit stylish every time, that’s all I do. Mainly because it’s quicker and why wouldn’t I give someone the bonus of a Gold Orb?

    Bent Friar may just be the greatest alternate name ever.

    I struggled with this too. I got round it by left/right dodging the jump attack and back dashing to avoid the danger follow up. Works 100%
