Sparda/Nightmare Beta run

#1 Post by diablo81 » Mon Jun 28, 2010 7:16 am

Doesn't seem too bad right now. I thought that phantom would give me trouble. Video and sound quality might be kind of bad because i used my webcam to record the videos.

Nice, it's been a while since someone posted a video log. Sparda can make short work of many enemies but for defense I hate having neither Air Hike nor Rolling Blaze. You did very well against Phantom, though. And Nightmare Beta against the Phantom Babies in M2 looked cool; I don't think I've ever done that before. Am a fan of Nightmare Beta.

Also, congrats on your S-ranks and no damage. I'm looking forward to seeing you take on the Shadow and Nelo in M4.

Sweet, you took up an interesting suggestion.

Any particular thoughts as you're doing this?

I would make this a S rank run but I don't think you can beat griffon without DT and get a S rank. Since the missions haven't been taking too long, I might make this a speed run.

S'ing everything is possible. SBing is not, though.

Going to watch the vids now. :3

First mission -- For some reason I thought you were going to do it in DMD mode. No problem, though; it just might be possible to SB the game afterall.
Nice first mission, except you didn't use Nightmare β at all. D:

Second mission -- Good job, but I was beginning to think you were not going to use the Nightmare β again. I think you should definitely use it a bit more and maybe spam less stingers. It works, but doesn't look that good. D;
On to M3.

Third mission -- That was an intense Phantom fight. :p
Not having Air Hike makes everything harder, but you did good.

Looking forward to M4, good luck!

Sparda and the Nightmare Beta? I love those weapons! Good going, and good luck.

Mission 7 is evil. Had no trouble with phantom, but the sin scythe's didn't want to work with me. It took me a few tries to do it without losing a whole bunch of life. What made it hard was them hiding in the wall. All it takes is one downward slash to kill them but most of the time they don't stay out of the wall long enough for you to hit them.

Having trouble with the quality (even if it is magnificent by cam standards), but I'll deal. Good job so far.

Capture card. Or TV card, same thing. You install it in your PC and then record directly to your hard-drive. Good qual., easy, and really convenient. :3

Mission 10 was interesting. I took a few hits from the Fetishes. It's not a really good idea to fight Fetishes with sword combos. Unlike Marionettes, Fetishes attack right after they block and you don't have much of a chance to dodge. I could have hid in a corner and spammed roundtrip but that would have taken way too long.

Just watched missions 9 & 10. Nice job with the Blades in both. I was kind of disappointed that you skipped Griffon 1, but I can't really blame you since I skip him half the time myself.

Fetishes are tricky without the Shotgun or Grenadegun to knock them down, but you've made good use of Nightmare Beta and Round Trips, and showed decent reflexes when reacting. Overall, good run so far. Are you having fun? :)

Yeah I'm having fun. For now anyway.

Nightmare Beta makes it easy to CH Blades. Usually it only takes one hit to knock them over. When you have to deal with a herd of Blades it doesn't work too well. Other than the Nightmare Beta, Round Trip is the only thing you can use if you want to fight enemies from a distance.

More fun with blades. Nelo 2 was kind of easy. What probably lowered my rank were the hits that I took from the blades. And I also took almost 8 minutes to complete the mission. I would do it again but I already saved the game.

Re Missions 11-12

Yeah, fighting a pack of Blades in an enclosed space is tough without Devil-Trigger moves, but you did alright. Points for fighting all the Blades on both trips through the well.

As for Griffon 2, I was impressed you managed to deal with his wing using only Nightmare Beta for a gun. Also I love Round Trip and it's generally underused, so I enjoyed watching your battle. Keep up the good work!

Griffon doesn't send out too many wings if you can trigger the divebomb loop. They are a pain to get rid of with Nightmare Beta. Roundtrip is the safe way to go. If you try to get close to Griffon and do sword combos you will get killed. It took me a few tries to do this. Griffon 3 shouldn't be too hard since I won't have to deal with any wings. The only thing that will be hard is knocking him out of the sky.

I had to skip a whole lot of stuff to do the mission in less than 10 minutes and to keep the video from being more than 10 minutes. Griffon won't attack too much if you stay close to him. Staying close to him is hard to do because he likes to jump away from you. I thought that the damage I took from Griffon would keep me from getting a S rank.

Nightmare VS Nightmare BETA!? How cruel, pitting family against each other. ;-;

Congratulations on defeating Nelo 3 and Nightmare 2. You did a pretty good job on that pack of Nobodies with no access to Devil-Trigger moves as well. You're almost done now!

Watching you makes me want to do a Sparda run. :)

Mission 20 Results:

Time: 4:58
Orbs: 765
Damage: slight damage
Devil Hunter Rank: S

This took a few tries.

I got the frosts close to the wall and used the 4 hit combo + high time to beat them.

Nightmare only had 1 red core. That made things easier. I used roundtrip on the final core.

I'm always afraid to stand still long enough to do that. But I suppose without any effective guns, no access to DT moves, and melee attacks even riskier, that was your best option.

You got an S-rank? Awesome.

I found out that melee attacks don't work the first few times I tried. All I had time to do was dodge. I managed to parry his triple stab every time he did it. I usually miss at least once. I would upload the video but the sound quality is too bad.

Is there any way to get past the tentacles in Mission 21 with the nightmare beta? I've tried and only got them to retract once.
