What's the big deal with intercept?? I've been reading that people are willing to trade the game in just because there's no intercept. Could not having one technique really be a gamebreaker?? Honestly, could it??

I'm loving this game so far. I feel honored to be playing it. The thought that i have one of the greatest console games ever at my fingertips any time of the day or night is great. To tell you the truth i've never even heard of intercept (don't have live, hence no HP's) until i started reading about it a couple days ago. Not having it has not diminished my enjoyment of the game one bit. Those that are used to having it are probably feeling the pinch of it's absence. Just get used to doing things a different way. You'll adapt. And isn't the counterattack move pretty close to it anyway?

some people at GameFAQs said they have it.

I just saw a great quote there:

Yup. It's in the hardest difficulties only i bet. Cool



Though... it would make more sense to put it in from Hard mode on, because HP 1 and Hard mode were roughly equivalent in skill level.

I've never even used the Intercept before, I just wanted more content in the game and I heard Intercept was really cool. I've seen it used, and from I've seen it demands a good eye and quick reflexes, and doesn't work on more moves than counter? Counter is only useful on weak attacks, and nearly every enemy has grab/throw to break your defense. Doesn't Intercept work on more attacks than counter?

That's the stupidest quote I've ever seen. Between "Counter Attacks" and "Intercepts", Intercept is definitely the better defensive move. It also takes alot more skill and leaves you with alot more options, therefore adding much more depth to the gameplay. Counter Attacks are cheesy, lame, and insanely easy to pull off. They don't leave you with many options therefore they make the gameplay appear a little shallow to me. Anyone who would prefer Counter Attacks over Intercepts is a CASUAL gamer IMO.

It neither takes more skills nor leaves you with more options. After a counter attack (especially a single X blow) you have on open delay whichyou can continue with whatever you want. Giving you a 2-5 frames delay (intercept) is not opening more options then with a counter.

As far as skills go, intercept is a move that can be done unpurpouseflly (sp?) since many people are only able to block right at the last second. While with counters, just blocking at the last second won't do. You need to be positioned right ro receive the hit and then discharge it.

Counters are even more skill based now, where attacks can break through your guard.

Un-polished?

I personally haven't played a more polished game then NGB.

And what is the "saves crap" thing ou are talking about?

^ I think hes refferring to the fact that we were supposed to use our successive plays from NG to unlock master ninja mode and costumes. But it seems that isnt true at all.
