So I got the trophy for finishing Pale Wing on Easy in EDF 2 on the 21st. On to playing Normal with Pale Wing, and that halted me with 15 missions I just can’t complete at all by myself, not without better weapons.
So then I started playing Air Raider on Easy …. ouch. OK through 7, then the crunch hits when more spaceships come in … I tried a bunch of different levels, skipped a few, but ultimately, I have to play even EASY with Air Raider with others.
So then I started EDF 2017, and realized I only had a few more missions to do on Normal, finished that then decided to start Pale Wing on Hard. Pale Wing on EDF 2017 Hard is brutal when it comes to black ants.
Black ants with my Pale Wing setup on Hard EDF 2017 is comparable to Air Raider on Easy EDF 2 with UFO’s and Motherships. Both things have halted me playing.
Comparing Pale Wing between games, I was able to finish Normal in EDF 2017 just fine. In EDF 2 I just can’t do it without something giving.
Crimson Mountain level is good for farming, except I couldn’t/can’t do it on Inferno or Hardest or Hard by myself. I got it done on Normal, but it afforded me nothing new.
I also started EDF 2 playing from the beginning with Pale Wing on Hard through Mission 13, skipping two Night missions though.
EDF is a game series you can play alone, but by golly is much better as a Co-op game. [Both PS Vita games have internet co-op and ad-hoc co-op.]
On all EDF games before just recently I always only played as the Ranger/Infantryman … playing with 2 of my friends. That would be EDF 2017 on PS Vita, EDF 2025 on PS3, then EDF2 on PS Vita, and once we got EDF 4.1 for PS4, I didn’t want to do Ranger right off, so I tried Wing Diver and loved it so much, the mobility most of all.
So on my two PS Vita EDF games I’ve gone back to playing them by myself lately, Pale wing on 2017 Easy, also Storm (the Ranger) on Easy.
Then I went back to EDF2 and started playing as Pale Wing on Easy, because on Normal it’s easier with the Health and Weapons being all better when starting. Plus the PS Vita EDF games have trophies for playing through on EASY anyhow. [On the Console versions of EDF there are no EASY play through trophies.]
I didn’t play for a few weeks, picked it up the other day and started playing Pale Wing on Normal, then realized I hadn’t played all the mission on Easy yet, no wonder her HP was on in the 200’s. Today I have been playing all the missions on Easy with Pale Wing, the ones that I hadn’t done yet. I have 3 mission at the end of the game, plus mission “57. Dragon Worms Again” which I failed miserably at twice in a row, haven’t tried it since much earlier today. I have more HP and better weapons now, but still, it’s a horrible mission, the centipede-like giant horrible creature in the city at night-time. UGH.
So I’m going to try that mission one more time, and hope I can finish it (I have little hope.)
I’m playing while writing this, so hold on … whoo, I did it! It wasn’t too hard, but I had to keep moving away every-time I shot, mostly using my Thunder Sniper R and sometimes my Thunder Bow 15. HP being up helped a lot, that is for sure. As little pieces of the worm came off and were killed, mostly they dropped healing items. I had the worm in at least 4 bigger parts and that also helped as I flew around and could reduce their size and pick up healing items. (Most assuredly necessary because I was freak out with that worm at night in the city, and shot all the way to empty with my Thunder Sniper R.)
Now onto the last few levels so I can get that Pale Wing Easy trophy.
