February huh? Better be in the first half of it right before I will be swallowed by Capcom's products. The game's mood looks great to me. Maybe I should play Sigma 1-2 again before NG3 release.

Really disliked the demo at eurogamer, apparently Ryu likes to kill humans now begging for mercy, sure it's probably meant to feel badass but made me feel like a dick instead. That and the gameplay has really lost it's soul. A shame NGB and NG2 are two of my favourite titles ever.

I suppose he had to against his will. At first I thought it's something about him becoming some sort of a vampire/demon he used to fight against but I think it was mentioned somewhere that there is something sinister about his legendary sword that makes him act like this. Those killings I mean. And personally, Ryu becoming a dark hero against his will sounds a way more interesting to me than the same old Ryu from 1st two games. Besides it will be more about his character finally not just about him fighting bad guys again.

Watch the "consequence" trailer and you know what the devs are trying to tell ;)
And how exactly the game lost it's gameplay?? It plays exactly like the first two Ninja Gaidens. The speed, Ryus movements and attacks, the enemies, the pretty much "unfair" encounters etc. Except for some additions like the SoB events (where no one knows if it's totally random or not) or the kunai climbing, it's classic Ninja Gaiden gameplay. The core gameplay never changed.
Even the OTs from NG2 are stil in the game because after an SoB you can "finish" the enemies (just without the NG2 splatter, of course).

I cant wait for the game. It looks awesome (ok, some textures could be a bit better, yes. But even FF13-2 has ugly ground textures) and the story seems to be interesting, giving players a deeper look into the guy who killed hundreds....THOUSANDS?! *talks like the guy dressed in red" enemies ^^


Momijis sister in pic 1 :P

I agree, the gameplay seems teh same stuff only without Limbs flying everywhere but I come to accept that and look at the game as a new take on the series and you know what? I like it.

Can't wait for this personally.

IRAIPT0IR, there is a girl in pic 1 >_> Say something.

Game looks awesome but has alot of flaws IMO.

First image, the girl, hot! lol
Reminds me of Momiji :)

Second image looks like Starkiller is fighting Ryu :P
Though I love that outfit of the enemy, wish Ryu had a similair one!

I hope we see something NEW, something that isnt from the horrible London level AGAIN.

"Ryu likes to kill humans now begging for mercy". Is that so? Fun, fun, fun all the way through, then!

Looks good but it's hard to get excited knowing what I know. They've confirmed only human enemies (except bosses), only katana weapons, no shops, no boobs... And Hard mode looks like NG2's easy mode. Hayashi needs to be replaced

I agree with everything...except the boobs, thats dumb in this day and age.

Dont forget, no more ninpo slots, no more potions, no more decapitations, stupid wall climbing, stupid QTE, stupid morale sequences....etc.

I kinda disagree with everything in here actually, we don't actually know how it will turn out this game, what if the combat is awesome? what if those things you listed are not required anymore?

NG2 was cheap as hell IMO on anything above Normal.

I take this change for what it is and not for what should have been.
Commented on 2011-11-17 17:55:44
The combat will be awesome for sure, it is NG afterall.
But it wont be a leap above NG2, and those SoB sequence are annoying, unless its smoother transactions once we do play it and the slow mo is gone.

Hayashi has said the sword is the main focus of the game, so dont expect anything else.
If thats the case I want kitetsu back considering I think thats the best sword in NG.

NG2 was cheap as hell I agree, I didnt finish MN because it was plain garbage design and we didnt get a damn thing for beating it other than a stupid default outfit with a ugly homo animal skin.

Never did understand the choice of levels for this game. In the first and second game, enemies occupy entire towns that are completely vacant? I remember walking through beautiful streets all by myself, wondering "where the hell is everyone and why is everything so neat?" Then enemies would flood in. I'm also done with Ninja Gaiden games, not because they're bad, I'm just done.
