    I've only messed with the game a bit but it's not bad, has a interesting combo system and what not. I'll have to look more into it since I don't know everything about the game as far as combos, movelist, etc. Overall it's pretty fun but I haven't played so far as to learn everything about it yet.

    I've played it, but not for a while now. Its a solid fighter. Why DG, have you found any infinites or noticed if the gameplay is broken? As I never played it enough to really notice. Although everyone seems to rip on the dial a combo system, aka button mashing. In a way it can be, but on the other hand you can get somewhat creative with the combos you do.

    I used to play it a lot a while back. It's actually a really good game. Nice animation, characters and fighting system (weapons/ no weapons). The game isn't all dial a combo. The infinites in the game are links and I only know of 2 infinites.

    Yes two infinites are known but there's like 5 total..the ones you probably speak of are Natsume's and Kasumis..powerful bitches I use them both for one hit murders..:rofl:..and both easy as hell infinites to do. I do the infinite till you get dizzy, then by that time I can POW max out my super and kill you with it off the Ultra combo killer with Natsume or the Drill Psycho Crusher one bar death super with Kasumi.

    The combo system is very unique..I love the game..its sad because the people I had to play it with loved it then when I destroyed them with Natsume and Kasumi they quit the game :sad:..now I aint got anyone to share my love with the game with..so I made a thread about it..

    Pulling out the weapons is great for blockstun I've noticed too..besides being in the combos of course it is good for creating block strings that make things uninterruptible.


    I can post strat up etc.. I'm glad more than me and my Denton Crew people have played this game before!!!! :clap:

    It needs a sequel..apparently it didnt sell too well because people were comparing it to Last Blade and Samurai Shodown, and that's where the problem was..the game has its own aesthetic value...and unique strats around having your weapon and NOT having your weapon.

    Wonder if Yumeji is Sam Sho is a guy or not? I say he's a guy..the final bosses of Ninja Masters are practically Yumeji and Gaoh....

    Okay so why is no one posting now? Did I scare anyone by saying it has 5 infinites? Are people already brushing it off now?

    Er, no. Here's a really long review I found at neogeoforlife.com for Ninja Masters - http://www.neogeoforlife.com/neo_reviews/ninja_masters_page1.php - Its an interesting read.

    I don't have much to say about Ninja Masters. I never knew about it or that it was even made until after when I was buying Last Blade for the AES. I asked the seller what LB was like and he referred too or mentioned something about Ninja Masters?

    My 2 fav characters are Natsume and Raiga! :wgrin:

    Want Natsume's infinite combo? Or do you have it already?

    Play it please...see what else SNK has to offer besides KOF, Fatal Fury, Last Blade and Samurai Shodown/WHeroes

    No I don't know it, and Yes I would like to know what it is! Though I feel after you tell me, its most likely something really simple! As is the case with most of them?. :lol:

    It is simple...the infinites are simple as a whole...

    Here is Natsume's infinite-

    [Cr. axxqcf+D uppercut kick (without the follow up)] land repeat brackets!!! Yes it's simple and most are..

    Know that one of her combo starters is an OVERHEAD!! Making for a great way to get into her super combo (forward+a I think?) The infinite should get them dizzy, then you can go into many many things!!

    Do you know she has a command grab and an air throw?? Man she has sick ways to get you in the infinite off setting up the command grab!!!! :badboy:

    I got some Natsume strats certainly..I can make people HATE fighting her..:rofl:

    EDIT: Also many moves in NM give the "Throw anywhere property" that is if it launches in anyway shape or form you can jump and combo a airthrow to reset for sickening damage. Natsume's are her qcb+C and some other things of course..

    Her far forward+Fierce Kick is good because it launches and you can go into many thingd with that.

    Some ranges on normal throws in this game are sickening also!!! :wow:

    Yes there are a couple but they are very hard to find..on the original cyberfanatix place you could get them with ease..and it showcased about 5-10 infinites in existence as well as some 100%s. Now you probably have to look hard at the premiere cyberfanatix place that charges you money to get the combo vids, because even on youtube there aren't too many vids available..but I will dig up some and see what I can come up with.

    Have you been able to get off Natsume's infinite combo?

    Sigh, No. I've told a few people on other sites, that quite a few of the players who used to play fighting games quite often, have now opted for those on-line War games! Which are not bad games, but they're just not a 2D fighter. I used to play Jesse Howard, Wes and a few of his friends ALL the time in ST, HF, KI2 and SS2 and so many other fighting games. Damn do I miss the old days! :sad:

    Every June, there is a Neo Geo gathering that features many Neo Geo and non-Neo Geo games, including shmups, beat'em-ups, and fighters; there was even a Garou, Samurai Shodown (2, 4), and Hyper Fighting tournament there. From what I hear, there is usually a lot of people that go, you should go, too, Nebuloso.

    For more information, go to http://www.neo-geo.com and go to the message boards, from there, try to find the Minnesota topic. I'm sure the people posting in that topic will help you out with the gathering information.

    You're right, I forgot about those guys! As I've never been to one of the Neo gatherings. That's funny considering how I prefer SNK fighters over Capcom ones, yet I've been to one of the SF gatherings when big mike lived by Westside VW.

    Soon I am going to start recording FFN Ninja Master match vids so people can see this game played tournament level..beware of what you are about to see..I will use these infinites even in casuals...

    So beware!!! It aint for the light hearted..in other words if you are looking for a reason NOT to play it then don't even watch..because even in casuals I go for murder....

    Yes, I want to see some NM matches! :wgrin:

    So, what would a Tier list look like for NM?

  • Dark GeeseDark Geese Joined: Posts: 12,439
    I dunno..I personally think the two characters i use..Natsume and Kasumi..have to be high tier..

    I would argue Kasumi may be the best character in the game...

    Her infinite is braindead easy to execute etc.

    We got caught up filming NGBC and NeoWave and XI matches this past Friday, but I am going to spread out and do some NM and other stuff this coming Friday.

    I am going to try and form a NM tier list today what I think it would be like since one practically for all intensive purposes does not exist.

    So it sounds like the Female's in NM are tops? I like Natsumi the best anyway! Bounce, bounce, you know what I mean. :lovin:

    You know, that's how it is in Martial Masters. You have Red Snake and Reika with Lotus Master who I'd put on the top (actually everyone is pretty good) but the women have 1 move that kinda over powers most other ones in the game, just by their speed alone? As strange as that sounds!

    Now that you mentioned XI, I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do, or your style of play! :tup:

    All you gotta do is go on up to FGD and check the threads they will be up when UnholyKnight posts them up...

    out of the 30+ matches of NGBC we played last night he already has 6 up for all to see in the NGBC thread. I am trying to get him to post one more because I almost hit everyone last night playing with everybody in NGBC and theres one more in particular I wanna make sure everyone sees.

    I didnt get to put/form that NM tier list today..I been up here for 7 hours watching match vids, analyzing stuff trying to stay ontop of everything..so I will try to do it tomorrow.

    Yeah Natsume is very very good as well..Kasumi is too easy to use...and her dive kicks remind me of Yun almost...too too good....there are Mudman like..

    in the way if you do it immediately off the ground etc and then can follow up with a jump grab thats like almost 1/3 of one bar itself!!!

    I hate to say it, because I thoroughly love this game, but it's kinda broken.....there are a lot more infinites than 5......check out the Endless Fight all character exhibition here:



    I do loves using me some Sasuke though.....

  • Dark GeeseDark Geese Joined: Posts: 12,439
    Hmmm interesting..I've seen those though but many of them are just non-practical...so thats my take on some of those..5 are the most practical...

    Sasuke is pretty good...I agree...Hanzo/Fuma vs. Sasuke and the other ninja..who would win? :lol: Who knows...

    Natsume vs. Maki...Natsume would rip her apart..with ease.

    4649 if you were to do a tier list for the game who would you place up-top?

    You just gotta treat this game like XVSF or something, ban the infinites and it becomes much more tourney eligible..

    well, Ranmaru and Nobunaga are obviously ridiculous ( boss tier )...

    i'll do some more looking soon but I'm pretty sure A-tier is something like Unzen, Goemon and Karasu

    Boss- Ranmaru ( can't lose his weapon, ever... ), Nobunaga ( about as fair as Omega Rugal in KOF 2K2 )
    S- Goemon ( two seperate infinites, bomb and spike ball safe pressure, can choose to rush down or run away.....unfair ) Unzen ( best unblockable command throw setups in the game, if he puts you in block stun you're in trouble )
    A- Karasu -( crow abuse and weapon call are dirty ), Sasuke ( easy infinite, triangle jumping ), Kasumi ( much the same reason as Sasuke ) Kamui ( wall clinging options, good priority ) Natsume ( good overheads and command throw, dirty infinite )
    B- Raiga ( good command throw / throw range, high damage combos ) Tennou ( his 236+k i think is safe and abuseable? ),
    C- Houoh ( good command throw setup but not much else )

    Where do you think Kasumi fits in this? So then you think Goemon is the best character in the game? If there was a NM tourney that's who you'd pick?

    Where do you think Kasumi fits in this? So then you think Goemon is the best character in the game? If there was a NM tourney that's who you'd pick?

    Kasumi is definitely A, but some quick notes on her:

    she actually might be a lot better than her ranking due to the fact that i think her 41236+k will hop over downed opponents allowing you to do crossed up wakeup cr. lp to start her infinite, feel free to test this ( i don't have my mame archive with me -_-; )

    her rekkas can be followed up with a jump up throw for free



    and yeah, if I were in a tourney i'd prolly pick Goemon, he's just too damn good....all he needs is a close standing A for the win

  • Dark GeeseDark Geese Joined: Posts: 12,439
    Oh yeah absolutely..that move is very good because of what you noted..

    I have tested it and it works..and the instant dive kicks are awesome...Psycho crusher drill is too good..yes instant dive kicks can be followed by Instant Jump throw as her Rekkas can as well.

    Kasumi would be great bait against Goemon I think..I think she has the best chance to beat him..

    With Kasumi all I need is one CR.A..then I win....I'll get you to dizzy, then finish you with DA DRILL...

    So this match could go either way...

    So I'd say Goemon and Kasumi are tops..

    Also did some playtesting yesterday..

    Instant dive kicks in the air are a better crossup..and with Kasumi she has more ways to go into her infinite instead of cr a..

    She also has st.C...so I can go low or high and hit you and get into an infinite.

    Instant dive kicks on wakeup if you do it right off the ground it won't crossup, but if you do it a tad bit later it will crossup..and then can repeat if they try to stop and it will hit them and you get a free air grab/ground infinite if you stay grounded.

    All right NEB,

    who else besides Nat and Kas do you think are High tier at least?

    After looking at some videos, and playing the game a bit more....I want to put Tenho at or near the top, all because of that Ofuda attack, which will freeze your opponent for about a second. Which can make quite a difference in a fight (especially in the corner). :rofl:

    Otherwise, I'd say that the tier list is more on the individual, and how their style/technique.

    I used to play the hell out of this game when I went to the arcades. I don't play it much now even though I have it for NeoRageX. I might fire it up every now and then for nostalgia purposes. But there is no reason for me to take it seriously anymore since it's all but forgotten. There are a lot of obscure fighting games that were made for the neogeo system. The fact that the characters didn't belong to SNK is what probably kept them from spawning sequesl of each game. If they could somehow get the rights to them, we might see a Samurai Showdown vs last blade crossover. Of course mugen can make that happen. But I've only been able to find 2 Ninja Master characters in the 4 years of been bessing around with it. This thread brings a tear to this old man's eye.
