In my last Ouendan-related post, I suggested that completing “Normal” mode was the limit of my 1337 gaming skillz. It seems that is not the case, as I managed to complete Hard Mode this evening.
That’s right – I cleared all of the songs. Even Ready Steady Go! (the last one), that I took over a hundred attempts to beat on Normal. I’ve been listening to the soundtrack a lot recently, so I know the songs off by heart, and it REALLY does help – many of the songs on Hard I cleared on my first go. OK, so I didn’t get great scores, but the circles to tap seemed more naturally placed – they really matched the songs. I suspect I was also “in the zone”, as it were.
Not that I didn’t have problems. Giant Mouse vs Businessman was a real pain, and RSG! did take me 15 or so attempts. In fact, on RSG, the first time I passed the second “section”, was the time I actually finished it. Excellent, excellent game.
And now I’ve unlocked Insane Mode with the proper girly cheerleaders. Hurrah!
