Shadows of the Empire Ord junkyard n64

Scary boss intro ord junkyard IG 88

Thanks for the memories of SF64.

I recently beat SotE on Hard mode and all challenge points using the original hardware.  Hard mode is more difficult than Jedi because your blaster's effectiveness is dramatically curtailed.  Honestly, at that difficulty level Xizor's Palace (specifically the three stage final boss Gladiator Droid) was one of the hardest things I ever accomplished in gaming.  I actually had to redo my save file from the beginning to build up more lives because I just couldn't beat the boss with 4 lives.  I ultimately went into the boss fight with 10 lives and came out with 2 or 3 left.  There are speedruns on Youtube on Jedi mode,  but frankly that is way easier than Hard mode since your blaster is so insanely effective.  I haven't seen anybody beat this boss on hard and I don't know how to do it without a massive life count and just getting brutalized.

I would love to see a pro take on Xizor's Palace with only losing 1-2 lives on Hard.  I would have a lot of respect for that because I spent a month practicing that level for an hour per day and I honestly couldn't find any good solution for that boss on Hard.  Stage 1 had a trick that made it really easy to beat (walk behind the boss and shoot) and Stage 2 has a semi-useful technique (stand directly under and shoot but you will still sometimes get hit).  That said, the third stage was a complete slaughter-fest and I know of no way to beat it without taking catastrophic damage.  Generally, I lost no lives on the first stage, I would lose 1-3 on the second stage depending on how lucky I am with positioning under the droid, the third stage would generally wipe me out though, I would lose at least 6-7 lives here even at my best.

Never played it myself, but MDK seems like an exciting albeit wacky third person shooter from the creators of Earthworm Jim (Jim himself makes a cameo as a power up that crushes enemies with an out of nowhere cow).



Oh hell no. Holy Easter. Page 13 has some stuff I never seen before
