Nice run PG. The game really became stingy with green essence on the second run, didn't it?

I think i just had the shittiest death so far. Playing Tonfa survival, Warrior round on 8.2 million, playing the part where you are surrounded by Tac Ninja's with rockets etc. I have very low health, so i position myself about center and unleash a Wind Blade ninpo, decimating 5 guys. Essence formed (About 3 blue and 2 yellow) and as i was absorbing them i get hit by rockets and juggled to death! I was basically watching Ryu's health go up, then down as he was being juggled. Fuark!

That is annoying. That reminds me of many parts of the story mode on MN. Don't think i encountered that death myself when doing survival for the gold medals only though.

People complain about the IS ninjas, but IMO, the rocket launchers are far worse. Especially if there are multiple ones (and the multi-rocket launchers).

Full length Tonfa Survival has been uploaded. It's pretty freakin crazy. There's a part in the Mentor round, i'm fighting the Giant Mech's with the Red Gaja's on zero health with no healing items, could've died in an instant. But, i made it through.... :smile:


The first round is over 5 million :cool3:

Now, all i have to do is complete a Flails Survival vid, and the section will be complete!

:coffee: .......... :surprise: ......... :clap:

Absolutely amazing. I've always loved the Tonfa, and it looks so awesome seeing it destroy Survival. But what is that FS>ID freeform move? I think you get a Flower Garland Drop from the Tonfa with XAXY? So the Flying Swallow Izuna is (A+X) YAXAXY?
I don't have a clue :shrug:
Man, I need to learn how to use that thing besides spamming the UT. Amazing work, and I want to see the Flails. I really want to see the Flails :pray:

I'm glad that you enjoyed it. I've been practicing with it for a little while so i could make this video. That move is a wind path (X+A) into a Stone Breaker ->Y, into Heavenly Justice (A), then finish with the Garland Drop (X,A). So the combo inputs goes something like this

X+A ->Y, A, XY :smile:


The Vigoorian Flails will be the next video. I am very rusty and might take some time before it comes out. :ninjawink:

Don't forget adding a "moves" list to your survival guide, or even doing some survival commentary videos?

I know i've been promising this for a while, but in the next few weeks i'm going to make this a reality. I've been so tight on cash recently, and haven't really spoiled myself with anything. I wanted to buy a decent quality capture device so i can record a full 4+ round survival run with the Dragon Sword. Our business is being purchased by a bigger company and as a result all the staff are being paid out some money, i'll receive something around $1500. So now is a good a time as any to get it and start recording. I'm buying the El Gato HD capture device.

My goal is to show the NG world what it's truly like to play through the Acolyte, Warrior, Mentor, Master Ninja rounds and beyond. If i can pull it off, it may well be one of the sickest NG videos ever.

PG - I'm thinking of trying my hand at Survival. Could you make a video tutorial of the weapons? (I'd even do commentary on it, if you would like)?

Or, since I'm going to start with the KG, could you do a quick strategy guide for that specific weapon? (I know you are going to be busy with your TDS 4+ video).

That would really help me (and others, I assume).

Would love to see that on video, I have the Elgato capture too, it's a great piece of kit, super easy to set up and file sizes aren't ridiculous.

I wish NG2 didn't take like 6 minutes to load on my 360, I'd probably still be playing it otherwise.

I could, but i honestly don't know where to start. Once i get the capture device i'm going into hibernation to get this run done, so all my energy will be focused on it. As far as tips go, i think you should focus on short, quick combo's and a lot of movement and chaining of UT's to carve your way through the waves. You have to have mastered i-frames to a tee for survival. And speed, lots of speed. When you know the waves, whats coming next up you can start prepping as the last few enemies are on screen. I think my videos show that pretty well.


The 360 YYY is great with the KG for building a combo above 20 with shuriken and so is the -> XXXX Y (ends in a flying swallow type strike), 360 Y into X will do a fuji drop as well as XXX->X into a fuji drop. If you are to use the jump XYY move try to incorporate the 360 Y into it for added carnage and combo count. Don't forget to use the Windmill shuriken always!

The beginning of something special. So yeah, i got another 360 today, and i bought the ElGato capture device. I will now get this all connected and start my training for the True Dragon Sword run.


Wish me luck! :thumb:

Is that a ninja on the pause logo of the ElGato?
That's gotta be a sign :ninja:
