So I finally figured out the input lag thing. It was my monitor. The problems went away when connected to my TV. Anyway, since I didn't have my earlier saves, I decided to make the MN run an OLB one the first go. Much like the community run we did many years ago. No healing of course. Went better than the last time (or that's what I remember)...only used one SoD.

Here's the final archfiend fight. I'll go through the other saved clips to see which ones are worth posting again. Feels good be out with another NG2 video. Damn, I missed this game. The combat is still unmatched in my opinion. Cheers.

Awesome stuff Kumar! Still recall watching your no-damage run years ago, NGII really is something special. Currently working on my OLB + No Ninpo run, just finished chapter 12. Really sweet just how great this game is.

@Raeng That's so cool! The Ch11 Rat brawl must have been rough. All the best to you.

Apologies for an unrelated question. I posted this on the NGB board, but I don't know how active that is. Could someone please tell me where the counter attack scroll is on VH. It's not at the shop. I've had to play all the way to Ch 11 without it. It's so annoying. Was it like a one time pickup that I missed somewhere?

Thanks

JTB once made an Excell sheet with all item locations, I put it on Google Sheets for easy online access:

To answer your question, you can't get it anymore. It was in the storageroom-chest in the airship of Chapter 3. Sorry man!

Wow. An essential combat mechanic locked as a one time missable. That's just bad game design. I even went into that room for the scarab. Spent so much time looking for it in Tairon after Doku (someone told me it should be on a body there). Can't tell you how much I missed it during the boss+lackeys fights. Would have just restarted if it was MN. I'll just wing it for the rest of VH. Damn. Thanks for the excel sheet link man. I'll refer to it for the MN run.

You can miss a lot of stuff in NGB if you don't open every chest. You can permantently miss Flying Swallow in Sigma for instance, same with the Guilottine Throw in Black if you go to far iirc. Lots of missable scarabs as well, meaning you can miss out on the Dark Dragon Blade and on some settings even the entire Dabilahro.

I do like it though personally, it really is an adventure game with good combat instead of the other way around. That said I do feel there should be a system that you re-encounter missed items, or that you can find the crashed blimp somewhere, that would be cool.

Oh, don't get me wrong. I think it's a fantastic game. A better finished product than NG2 most definitely. I tend to like flawed games anyway. This is the second time I've bought NGB digitally, so I like it plenty :) I think it's fine if you miss a spirit, LoG or even Dabi, Kitetsu etc. Missing counter attacks is just bad design. The harder difficulties become super annoying while you roll like a monkey waiting for the long attack strings of some enemies to end.
