Are you on about jackasses last trial? If so you should be able to do it with a reasonable loadout although I dont think I had much going in so perhaps its not essential. It took me a few tries but in the end I found the best method was to dodge just as they are about to hit you then counter with the R1 button for massive damage (as you wont burn them down fast enough otherwise) also when you have space charge up the laser on the pod and let rip then when their shields are down and their numbers are thinned go in. I managed to do it at level 13 with a few seconds spare although at the start it seemed impossible.CritialGaming said:I'm at the point now where, even though I am leveling up, I don't feel stronger. There is this mission where I have to kill like 8 enemies with shields in 30 seconds and I simply don't do enough damage. No amount of comboing melee with the little robot companion thing helps. I fail by 5 seconds everytime. I even came back and tried it 3 levels "stronger" and nothing changes. I've tried installing increased attack damage chips, but that doesn't help because I don't have anything powerful enough to make a difference. Not to mention I have no room to install shit. I can put in 2 chips, just 2, and it doesn't matter.
The more I play the more shit just gets in my fucking way. It's like playing Zelda again but with a shitty color pallet.
The mission that is annoying the hell out of me is the last speed star mission damn that is annoying especially as I hate checkpoint race missions in pretty much any game.
So far my impressions went from hmmm not sure about this to loving the heck out of it. Like Nier I am doing the side missions not so much for rewards but because I want to get more info im about 11 hours in and only on my 1st playthrough but I am really enjoying it now. Combat I was initially worried about and its no Bayonetta or Vanquish although I personally prefer it to Revengeance but I find it enjoyable enough that encounters do not exactly bother me and in some cases actually get me to look forward to them especially the bosses.
Like the tone as well initially I found it very muted and bleak and while I still do I really like the use of light and as for the story I am already hooked. My thoughts may change but initially I was not very interested in the game I did not even bother to download the demo but I am glad I took the chance so far as the more I play the more I am enjoying it.
Also liking the mashup nature of the gameplay but then I like Shmups, platformers and 3d action games in general.
One thing that struck me initially is how well presented the game is and how it handles it handles a lot of the games systems within its theme and world which really helps to draw me in more. As for the characters I did not think I would like them but damn I was wrong however I am not sure it will excel quite as far as Nier did in the department.
