SWANTONMASTER brings you the top 5 hardest and most infuriating video gaming moments to ever grace our screens.
It was those damn satyr's that are frustrating
hardest boss in gow3 is hades...
I beat him on literally my first try. Zeus was considerably more difficult.
The first sequence with Zeus was soo hard haha, thought I was doing it wrong, the rest of it seemed really easy in comparison. The boss I actually died on the Most was the mini 1 - the Ice Spider thing that you had to shatter its legs with the fists of Hercules.
The fight can be easy if you know the tricks against the Satyrs... The best way to kill them is use the Hades Claw magic (Gorgon Serpent which turns enemies into rocks like medusa).. As soon as you chop off 1 head of the cerebus, a satyr will pop out, instantly use the claw magic and the thing will turn to stone which you can break easily.... Beating the Cerebus just takes time.... Just make sure you kick those fkin hounds back and hit him with the Cestus.... EDIT: Oh sorry meant to reply below..
beat him first try
I agree! I never throw my controller anymore and he made me launch it across the room on more than one occasion. And, ahem...nothing from Demon's Souls? Half the bosses on DS kicked my ass over and over and over again.
EDIT Double post
however i found that an effective way to get rid of those damn satyr's is to grapple them from far away and throw them all over the place, they are quite light to me the hardest boss so far was hades too, but its also probably the best "traditional" boss fight ever (traditional as in, nothing like Chronos where its far from traditional but still awesome!) edit: @ below: yes i agree! IF there is a gorgon around them...which isn't always the case =(
The best way is to turn them into stone with the gorgon and smash them. At least that is the way I did it.
But isn't there supposed to be a gorgon soul attack? Unless I'm forgetting something critical about Titan that prevents using it.
There is a Gorgon Serpent in the Soul selection option once you upgrade the Hades claws... Thats the best way to deteat the Satyrs... Turn the mother fkers to stone and smash them to bits.
I almost wimped out to an easier difficulty with Radec, but I persevered and got him.
OMG Radec was a pain in the ass on elite. It literally takes an hour to beat him!
I have yet to beat Radec on my saved file and i got Killzone 2 a few days after launch =(
was easier than the waves beforehand. That's where I kept dying. It was a good challenge though and I'm glad they made it that way. I hope they don't wuss out on the 3rd.
Radec is very easy, just use the flamethrower and the knife, he only screams and run in circles. He will die in less than five minutes on elite. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
OMG seriously even on normal when you went to Hades the second time(I think it was) and fought the Spawning Cerberus I almost cried, it was the 'WTF are you doing to me?' moment that GoW is known for. And Gun Senshi are talkin about on Chaos mode cuz everybody is Hard but on lower difficulties no he's not. Just my opinion. My easiest/funnest boss was Hermes
This is a pretty lame and unthoughtful list.
I know I had a tough time with Contra III...
I agree. Radec fair enough for that list but I beat Lavarevic on my first attempt. I thought he was a pretty easy boss.
For me, Cerberus was probably the hardest boss in the Titan mode of GOW3 (I can't even imagine what it must be in chaos mode !) I surprised myself by beating Hades at my first try for example, and Zeus is no big deal once you know how to play it. But I started the fight against Cerberus without any power in the Olympus Blade and there was so much sh*t on the screen I was just going crazy. But I disagree with the article about the dogs, they were not the problem. The satyr's were the problem !
The only way I could beat it was to use all my magic when the first came up, and then activate chaos mode when there were 2 of them. I actually beat Zeus quickly. The 2d part was super easy even on titan when you used those lion mittens.
Beat Hades 1st try, beat Zeus on my millionth try. That first sequence was brutal
Lazaravic on crushing...he didn't even kill me once. I had a tougher time on hard. Although I did have experience fighting him on hard, owned him less than 2 mins on crushing no joke. Radec....you already know i hate you...If you didn't make me cry on elite I probably felt like my life meant nothing for 2 days lmao hella hard. EDIT: It wasn't even radec that was hard.....It was actually getting up to him! -_-
I 1-shotted Cerberus on Hard by using Gorgon Flash. No joke.
All the situations on this list are from contemporary games; where are all the bone-crushing older games, where is Level 5-2 from Demon's Souls? I for one didn't think Lazarevic was particularly difficult in Uncharted 2, nor was Radec that hard in Killzone (hint: turn your speakers up for the battle, it will make it much easier).
Agree on the Demon's Souls, especially when you can't run away to get distance from the giant goblins since you're just in that pool of poison. I remember staying on the ledge and shooting 200+ arrows trying to kill the 3 giant goblins surrounding that one island. I was the fool to think there'd be anything good there though. I'd have to say Lazarevic and Radec were only frustrating on the hardest difficulties
did you have to mention Demon Souls......"remembers tough times"
Yeah for Radec Stand up againts a wall where you can see everything it's cake after that. And Lazarevic Run Like Hell keep shooting the tree it only took two tries to kill him it was fun but it keeps u on the edge
Playing tekken online for the first time, i actually broke a controller. i thought i was quite good at tekken, but i'm not. When you get kicked in the air at the start of the match and stay up in the air cos they're smacking a 20 hit combo in your face...then its hammer time
Dont forget Nancy and Azazel.
and I was not able to play at all! Hurray broken online system in all fighting games, except BB
radec pissed me off for like 2 hours, i was so happy when he blew his own head off =)
this list for this gen ... there are actually much more frustrating moments in old gens games ... (metal slug 3 last level ?? for example )
Maximum Carnage on SNES/Genesis eats these games for breakfast
I know it's about games, but.... my most frustrating moments were the multiple RROD I experienced. Good thing I had a Ps3 as well.
Started Gaming this generation only.
not that he's wrong about any of them if you do it on hard (lazaravich aside)
im sorry i did it in crushing just the other way, worked on the 3rd try (a bit rusty ^^) Radek on Veteran though...damn it. especially the part before it... and cerebrus ! agreed -_-
on my first playthrough i had a tough time beating him. my second was on the hardest difficulty and i found him suprisingly easier, probably cause i learnt the correct way of facing him
Three playthroughs and I only died twice(both on the first playthrough), so I don't know why he is on this list at all. There are much better choices just by using Demon's souls. Like maneater, flamelurker, False King, and BP Satsuki are much more difficult and frustrating than Lazarevich could ever be.
Whenever you only have one of those bulbs left to shoot to kill the guy, and you're on your 4th or 5th go on him and he hits you with his cheap ass sniper shotgun, then yeah, it IS frustrating.
Lazaravich bsd me a lot. After 3rd animation he would always manage to hit me with 1 shotty blast and kill me. It was very frustrating, but not difficult, you just had to get lucky.
Lol I got a confession I never killed Redec I just got frustrated by it, and left it, and haven't played Killzone 2 since xD
haha, I can understand
People say he's tough because he can teleport. I beat him in the first try on hard. But if his teleporting bugs you just hit em with the flame thrower. Teleporting does no good if the flames teleport with you. I thought Zoran was pretty lackluster. Beat him in 3 tries and I died because i kept jumping into a pit not looking where I was going. Seth should be number 1. I.......HATE........HIM.
Here's my one tip for Redec.... stay in a corner, that way he can't come from behind. Wait for the flash when he teleports, unleash firepower in that direction.
Try Lazarevich on crushing, I cried. But once you beat him it turns out there´s a trick to defeat him. But it was the first time in my gaming life I said to myself: "wow, I'm really not gonna beat this guy"
Wow.... great list.... Anyway, if anyone has played games before this gen, they'd know this is silly.
More or less. Though the article could have been far more accurate if its tagline simply added "today" at the end. These are definitely near the top of the pile this generation (with Demon's Souls as a whole being higher than this entire list).
I never played guitar hero but I only agree with 4 and 2. The rest are mad easy. GoW 3 was really easy on titan for me besides the satryrs(sp?). Radec was such a bitch on the hardest difficulty
Try going for the 1000 hit combo on Titan mode! I made it to 957... >_<" Try getting a Pure Bladestone!! Try beating all the timed runs in Mirrors Edge!! Try winning the last few races on Motorstorm PacRiff!! Try beating 3D Dot on Spelunker mode!! Dx P.S. I can't seem to fet the article to load... =/ P.S.S. NVM, I got it to load up. All of those are easy... Well except for Raddek. One of the very few times I've needed the internet to beat a boss. I used the knife tactic.
So...you can get 100% on Through The Fire And Flames? How about The Devil Went Down To Georgia?
I personally found Devil Went Down To Georgia to be a more difficult song.
Try beating level 70 on Frozen Bubble! I have the game on my phone and I have beaten that level once until my goddamn girlfriend restarted the whole game. I just might have to give her the backhand for the 3+ hours that I've probably ended up spending in total trying to beat this goddamn level T_T For those who knows what I'm talking about would know; awesome game but very frustrating level
seth is really hard, how can he spam sonic boom. thats nutz! radec was really hard too. i admit i had to turn down difficulty to beat him.(sad) cerberrus on titan mode was hard too, took me 3 days. didnt think hades was hard.
Ehh, Uncharted 2 was fairly easy, even on crushing. The last boss only took me about 4 retries (On crushing that is).
no mention of aplha from doa 4? or trying to get out of that bloody spider temple in overlord 2, that has to be number 1.
Being a gamer in a third world country (like I was for most of my teenage years) where blackouts still occur is the most frustrating thing, no matter what game your playing... :(
here we go again...another stupid post
Nothing this gen has lived up to the controller breaking frustration I felt trying to complete Ninja Gaiden on Master Ninja difficulty. Games this generation seem much easier. I still need to play some Demon Souls I hear that is a challenge. Even GoW3 on the hardest difficulty wasn't too hard for me while the past games seemed much more difficult.
You haven't played Demon's Souls yet? That's arguably the best game this generation.. You should feel ashamed.
Radec is not hard; it's the soilders besides him that are deadly, esp the ones that rushes at you with a smg.
No. These aren't hard...expect Through The Fire and Flames. Why? Because I've done all of them!!! If they were really that hard, a noob like me couldn't do them. Vergil on Devil May cry 3's last form. That's hard. Beating Shadow of the Colossus without crying. That's hard.
The fight leading up to Radec and the fight against him were both a b!tch to beat. Another fight this gen i thought was kind of hard was the fight against RAAM imo (at least on harder difficulties )
Defeating Lazarevic in Crushing was really hard if you followed the rules, but there is a cheap way to beat him (almost a cheat actually). There is a piece of rock you can hang on to were he cannot touch you. Easy to find on youtube for example.
This person obviously never played a game in the NES era. These are not even close to the top 5 most frustrating moments in gaming.
UC2 wasn't hard for me. Radec was a bit*h, holy hell was that hell. GOW III oh man that was difficult and I have beaten through the fire and flames on hard multiple times, but I won't touch expert, it's moronically hard.
