Ikaruga:
E6VsDunsw1E

I wanna be the guy:
CPBgxWyXYKI

I'm trying to decide which one of these games is the hardest game ever in the existence of gaming.

Ikaruga is a test of reflexes and precision in a coked up crack heavy fucked up kind of way and I wanna be the guy is a test of precision and reflexes in a sort of japanese game show where it's impossible to do what the creator asks and really if you win, it's really out of sheer luck rather than skill because it's designed to be unbeatable.

I've beaten both of them but only on easy. I know there are people who have done it on hard, but those people are also liars or robots. But beating it on easy has already made me significantly more accomplished than 99% of the human population.

In regards to Ikaruga it's an awesome game and I believe you have beaten it on easy Sirc, but in regards to I Wanna Be the Guy I'd have to see vid of you beating it, cause I think you're full of shit.

Fuck you. I'm never going to try that again. You should try it on easy. It's significantly more possible with save points every 2 levels rather than every 10. I used the videos on youtube to help me out and I spent probably about 2-3 hours on each boss. It was quite the adventure.

That's the thing.

There's two colored ships, black and white. If you switch to your white ship, the white energy balls will absorb into your shields and you can gather energy and use it like a bomb, and your attacks will do double against the black ships and vice versa. The game gets hard when you are shifting between black and white constantly over and over and over again while dodging and trying to kill things.

On the 2600 I played it, but I saw King of Kong when it came out, which was an excellent movie.

IWBTG at 3 hours minimum per boss x 8 bosses = over 24 hours of game time. Some people can beat it in an hour.

I'm just happy that I finished it. Of course I promptly deleted the program and vowed never to download that game ever again. It's a pox.

Upon further inspection, I wanna be the guy is definitely a much much harder game. Going back and thinking about both (because there's no way in hell you can get me to play them again, I'm not that much of a masochist.) IWBTG made me want to kill more people and was sig-fucking-nificantly harder.

Mas

100% agree. Ikaruga only seldom made me want to smash the controller into a billion pieces; IWBTG made me hate humanity, Randian-style.

I was a big fan of the Shinobi games growing up, I even still bust out Shinobi II and III now and again, but the one that came out for PS2 was ridiculously difficult, I'd say harder than DMC3 or Ninja Gaiden. I make the comparison because they are somewhat similar games. I wanted to get all the coins and shit, but by the time I was done I didn't want to play it anymore.

LOL @ Forza being "realistic."
Exactly. I've never played Forza, but not long ago I learned my lesson with regard to the realism of console racing sims.

I've owned Gran Turismo 4 for a little over 3 years now, and every minute of it has been played with the Driving Force Pro (http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/gaming/playstation_2/wheels/devices/273&cl=us,en). At some point last year I found out about some seriously expensive steering wheel and pedal setups for PCs, which led me my discovery of GTR2 (http://gtr-game.10tacle.com/index.php?id=246&L=1) [Warning: European techno]. I was very good at GT4 at the time (though I hadn't won every race or gotten gold in every license test), so I decided to download the GTR2 demo and see what it was like. I installed the demo, hooked up my Driving Force Pro to my computer for the first time, and got ready to kick ass.

Then I got my ass handed to me.

You see, it turns out that the "Real Driving Simulator" (GT4) is actually very generous when it comes to breaking. Every car in the game is presumed to have anti-lock brakes, which can be abused indefinitely without effect.

GTR2, on the other hand, simulates the race cars involved in FIA GT racing - none of which have ABS. My aggressive entrance into the first corner of Barcelona (the track in the demo) wound up being a lesson in inertia, as well as proof that real race cars become damaged when they run into a wall. I don't recall the exact numbers, but I think it's far to say that dragging my right wheel added at least 10 minutes to my lap time. I could go on for several pages about how much more realistic GTR2 is compared to GT4, but the fact that you actually have to start the car in GTR2 says it all.

Gran Turismo/Forza might be the most realistic racing game on your console, but excellence in either of them barely qualifies you to attempt GTR2.


P.S. The Windows driver for the Driving Force Pro allows you to set an arbitrary number of degrees of rotation, which means it can be set to 540 degrees to recreate the actual steering of an FIA GT car.

Did you turn off traction control and ABS?

I'm willing to bet you didn't. GT4 becomes extremely realistic when you do. I've driven a lot of the cars 9/10ths in GT4 in real life and they behave as they would in the game on the similar kinds of tires.

Sport Softs are about the same as RE01's. Which make the cars behave a hell of a lot the same.

Traction control was definitely off, and I think I remember ABS was off but I'm not absolutely sure. Tomorrow I'll turn both off and see if GT4 behaves the way I remember it.

I have written it down; I'll have to build up to it since I'm thoroughly out of practice (health problems prevented me from playing GT4 for almost a year). In fact, I just went back to the game a couple of days ago because I realized I'd been better for a couple of months.

I have considered moving my save file over to a different memory card and starting the game over again, but I don't know that there'd be any point to it.

Actually, most are done by tweaking scripts which the emulators use for automatic input. I used to have a bookmark, no idea where it is now, for a site that was nothing but game videos made that way.

19th April 08, 08:30 PM
That was mostly hard because the interface sucked. I'm currently playing it on an emulator and have hired Kitsune as backup healer and group DPS. Every time I want her to cast a spell I need to go through a series of sucky menus and drag the unwieldy SNES cursor around the screen, meaning I often die before I can get her to heal me. I can't even shoot while directing another character to cast a spell.

Excellent game otherwise, very atmospheric, especially with the music. Too bad it was damn hard trying to figure out where to go next most of the time because of said interface suckage also infecting the dialogue system. The Genesis version of Shadowrun was far superior, IMO.

I never even came close to finishing FF1 back in its day. Now on my emulator, It only took me a few days to finish it with the help of online guides and maps.

FF2 (or 4 for the losers who count non-American released games), on the other hand, was way too easy.
