@“a pagan sketch of Jesus”#p48934 Something pretty metal about the way they just sit you down and calmly explain to you that the game is “intended to be almost unbearable.”

or perhaps something less catastrophic:


I'll never forget the first time I played Viewtiful Joe. It was just me and my step dad one weekend. He took me to blockbuster. I got the game and he watched me start it. He saw the difficulty settings, watched me pick KIDS.

Then the first cut scene has Joe and Sylvia in the theatre, they smooch or something kind of suggestive happens, and my step dad goes “SO MUCH FOR KIDS MODE!”

Dang, I might have to beat this and come back with a photo of the next unlockable difficulty setting….


How about DMC 3 where you have to unlock easy mode?

All of these cheeky games where they call you a kid or a baby because you don't have the time or patience to put up with a difficult game, I'll never get over the sting of dying 3 times in a row during the first fight outside the bar, and the game saying to me, "Aww... here, maybe this is more your speed."

@“milo”#p49394 I have to admit I kind of like the idea of forcing normal for a little bit, although given that the US version‘s Normal was the JP version’s Hard I think the design choice was misapplied here (particularly as no one playing the game would even know that without doing research (especially in 2005)).

At least it doesn't make you wear a silly hat.

Or a [SUPER silly hat](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VIhmVH7LCDs).

Though sometimes silly hats come with their own [benefits](https://medium.com/@shanedent20xx/ninja-gaiden-black-has-an-incredible-easy-mode-93847ce93505).

oh yeah now we're cooking

I was looking for the NMH1 difficulty select, but I guess NMH3 copied it as well.


in the context of this forum, the weirdest thing was learning Timothy Rogers worked on NMH‘s localization. I played it when it released and it’s one of my all time favorites and influenced my teen brain. So it may be my favorite thing he worked on, unless he did some other random epic thing I still don't know.

I knew there was something lodged in my memory for this and I don't think this covers it entirely, but this was a screen to sign up for some facet of 3DS online. Behold the ancient cameraphone transcription recalled from an eight year old Facebook upload
