  • RedOutlive10 - February 17, 2010 1:43 p.m.

    Good article, and yeah why have they never moved the hays in the game, it's always placed in the best spot for a jump.
  • gilgamesh310 - February 17, 2010 2:12 p.m.

    I don't get the one with chris. What does a thumb tack have to do with anything? The one with Kratos was brilliant mind.

    Prince of Persia: Design rooms with more symmetry and don't offer so many obvious grooved handholds on one wall when all the other walls are smooth. Don't put so many beams in close proximity to said handholds since they don't really support a roof or any other edifice anyway. If you're going to break a ladder in half, move one part someplace far away from the other so that a clever triangle jump isn't enough to get you to the top where only more improbable beams/grooved handholds can be exploited.
  • GoldenMe - February 17, 2010 3:17 p.m.

    MS Paint win.
  • bigwill1982 - February 17, 2010 3:32 p.m.

    Thats not the best way to kill Bayonetta...Forget the sweets and sneak with a hair cut...Throw Nair on her and make sure she is standing on Gravel. rocks would jam those pistols.
