I own a slim PS3, the videos below will offer HD options between 720p and 1080p (depends on the game).

Playthrough with Robert. If you've beaten this game as many times as I have then it generally isn't too bad, but the last boss can be really random difficulty wise. Sometimes he'll get hit by every fireball you throw at him, sometimes he won't etc.

Playthrough with Noel. Whilst I usually try to fight hidden bosses I decided not to with this game, as if you fight Unlimited Ragna you don't get to see the ending, regardless whether you win or lose. So I lost a round on purpose. This game is easy to beat otherwise.

Playthrough with Noel. For those not in the know, this game the sequel to Continuum Shift (see below). Noel's got a new outfit and new moves for this installment, and her astral finish move is now a counter. This would be kind of risky to use against a human player, yet the CPU seem to go out the way to try and hit Noel when she's in her counter stance, which is good.

Playthrough with Noel. This game is the sequel to Calamity Trigger. The game's final boss, Hazama, can actually be a pain to beat since he can drain your health just by being near you (you have to keep attacking him to stop this) plus he has some annoying moves. It's not too hard to win with Noel though.

Playthrough with Ragna. Whilst I fight the hidden boss of this game, I don't beat her. Thankfully it doesn't effect the ending or anything either way, so I don't mind. Especially since she's so cheap and no fun to fight in any way at all. To fight the hidden boss you have to playthrough the game without losing any rounds, which isn't too bad until you get to Hazama. As mentioned in the game above, Hazama can be a little difficult to beat due to some of his moves. You just need to stay on the offensive when fighting him.





Call of Duty: Black Ops

Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough of the campaign mode on regular difficulty, which is the setting I use for all of my CoD playthroughs. This game is the sequel to World at War (see the Xbox 360 page for a playthrough of that) and has an interesting storyline that I won't spoil here. Kudos to Treyarch for toning down the grenade spam that the previous game suffered from.





Call of Duty: Black Ops II
Video length: See times on playlist
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

The sequel to Black Ops features multiple endings depending on what you do in certain levels. I'd intended to get the best ending, but unfortunately I missed an objective early on in the run and didn't realize I had until I'd nearly finished the game, at which point I didn't feel like going back and re-doing it all.

Also included is a playthrough of the Strike Force mode, which consists of several mini-missions with varying objectives.

See the PS4 videos for a playthrough of Black Ops III. Whilst that game was released for PS3, the PS3 version doesn't feature the campaign mode.

This game tends to get bashed a lot, but when I played it I didn't think it was that bad. I was under the impression there was going to be a lot of stupid stuff with the dog, but it turns out there is only one slightly annoying stealth section you have to do as him, and he helps out fine most of the time otherwise. The only mission I found annoying was the one where you are underwater, simply because underwater levels are never fun and the bit with the sharks towards the end was irritating.





Divekick
Video length: 20:06
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with Kick. For those who've never heard of it, this is a two button fighting game, with the aim being to land a divekick on your opponent. One hit is all it takes to win a round, but it can be a lot tougher than it sounds! Characters have special abilities to spice things up, and the game's final boss is kind of ridiculous since he can teleport around and has a counter move.





Fatal Fury
Video length: 17:26
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with Terry, on the hardest difficulty setting. This is the easiest game in the series, and even when put on a higher difficulty level it doesn't make much difference. You only really need to use two moves with Terry to beat the game: his power wave and burn knuckle. The special moves do huge amounts of damage in this game and the CPU tends to get hit by them all the time.

One thing I didn't realize until I did this playthrough is that this game has an different ending sequence if you manage to beat it on one credit and without losing any rounds. You'll see some pictures of every fighter after the credits, but if you won without losing any rounds, you'll also see a picture of each fighter beat up.





JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle
Video length: 33:49

Playthrough of arcade mode with Dio. I don't have much to say about this game since it isn't that hard -the first time I played it I beat it, and the arcade mode doesn't feature a boss to fight at the end, you only have to beat a set of random CPU opponents. They do get a little harder towards the end but they still don't get that tough. Really if you want more of a challenge then play the story mode.





King of Fighters '94
Video length: 25:43
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with Terry and Andy. Oh and Joe is on the team too, but I forgot to use him, whoops. This game can be beaten easily with Terry, because he has a very easy dizzy combo: jump in strong punch/kick, standing strong punch, burn knuckle. I use that a lot in this playthrough.

The game gets harder the further you get into it, but I go through it pretty quick. Most people remember this game for the boss, who has two forms. Rugal's first form doesn't use special moves, and you can easily beat him jump by going all the way to the left of the screen and then repeatedly jumping and doing knockdown attacks, he'll either block or get hit by them, either way you can just repeat this over and over until you win.

His second form is a nightmare, the only tip I have is that whenever he charges up his POW meter, you can rush in and attack him without fear of him counter-attacking.





King of Fighters '95
Video length: 28:58
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with the hero team. I'm not going to say much here, simply because the final battle is the most clutch win I've ever had of any playthrough I've ever done.





King of Fighters '96
Video length: 39:19
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

Playthrough with the Ikari team. This game marked Leona's debut, unfortunately I don't really get to use her that well because I struggled to do charge moves in this version. KoF '96 had stiffer controls than '95, but to me it feels worse in this PS3 version.

Thankfully it doesn't matter because of Ralf. His desperation move in this is really good because even if it gets blocked it does a good amount of chip damage, plus you can spam it against the CPU when needed. It was satisfying punching Goenitz's lights out with it. Twice.





Marvel Super Heroes
Video length: 22:51

Playthrough with Magneto, using the version included on Marvel Vs. Capcom: Origins. One of the easier games in the Marvel by Capcom series, I've not got much to say about this one.





Marvel Vs. Capcom
Video length: 24:38
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough with Morrigan and Captain America, using the version included on Marvel Vs. Capcom: Origins. I fight Golden War Machine for the secret challenger fight. The last few opponents in the game are tougher than the first few you face, and of course there is the boss, Onslaught, who has two different forms. He's not too hard to beat, but it can take longer depending on what type of attacks he throws out. For example, if his first form keeps using the giant laser, you can't do much other than block for a few seconds.





Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
Video length: 29:05
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough with Magneto, Haggar and Iron Man. This is about as difficult as the previous game, although Galactus is a more challenging boss.

Speaking of which, if you're wondering why I haven't done a playthrough of MvC 2 for this console, it's because it was meant to get a price cut before it got delisted, so I was going to wait for that since I already owned several versions of this game already. But the European version never did get the price cut and then got removed from the store. Thanks a lot, guys.





Metal Slug
Video length: 28:15
Game region:
Difficulty level: 4 out of 5

The original Metal Slug is my favorite of the series and the only one I think I'll be able to clear on one credit. Let me give this a mission breakdown:

Mission 1: easy

Mission 2: easy

Mission 3: The platforming section at the start can be daunting at first but the real challenge of this mission is the fight against Allen, because ideally you want to keep him above you for the entire fight, but it all depends on what kind of pattern he's going to do. After you beat him the rest of the mission isn't that hard, especially when you get the tank.

Mission 4: really easy due to the fact you get a tank right near the start.

Mission 5: this mission is where the game gets harder. I found it best to just take my time, and destroy any cars as soon as possible. And keeping the tank for the boss fight is a must.

Mission 6: the hardest mission. The opening section isn't hard but when you move out of the forest is where things really get crazy, and I lost a life. The sub section has one part I really hate, where you have to deal with a bomb dropping helicopter along with some planes. I foolishly lost my 2nd life trying to get the tank -I should have been mashing the fire button to stab enemies but didn't, which was my error -but once I respawned and got the tank the rest of the level went by OK.





Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix
Video length: 17:06
Game region:
Difficulty level: 5 out of 5

Playthrough with Ken, this video shows the secret boss fight against Akuma. The original version of this game featured brutally tough CPU opponents, and whilst the difficulty was toned down for this game, they're still fairly challenging. Thankfully Ken's roundhouse kick still works well against them (although against characters with dragon punches you need to be careful).

Akuma is a nightmare to beat in this version. If you can trap him in the corner you can keep doing Ken's flaming dragon punch over and over again -if timed right, Akuma won't block it. Time it wrong, however, and you can expect something like what happens at 14:08 -look at the ridiculous amount of damage (around 85% of my life) Akuma did, with one basic combo! I can't believe the play testers didn't say something like "hey maybe this is a bit too much" but whatever, I still beat him in the end.





Time Crisis: Razing Storm
Video length: 41:02
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough of version included on Time Crisis Razing Storm. Possibly the most dudebro lightgun game ever made. Razing Storm plays a lot like Crisis Zone (see the PS2 page), just with added rocket launchers. It really isn't too difficult to beat and had I practiced some more I probably could have gotten through it without losing any lives. You can even gain life back by rescuing team mates when given the chance (I wasn't too good at this during this run).

I get the extra level on this playthrough. At the end of the third level, you have to shoot down several missiles. If you manage to do this you get to go onto a fourth level, which features a gigantic warship as the final boss. The game continues in a separate first person shooter mode, but I'm not doing a playthrough of that because I don't like it.





Time Crisis 4 Arcade ver.
Video length: 47:23
Game region:
Difficulty level: 5 out of 5

Playthrough of version included on Time Crisis Razing Storm. Time Crisis 4 is probably the worst one in the series I've played, mainly because of the Terror Bites. For some reason Namco thought it would be a good idea to put insect enemies into Time Crisis. Trying to deal with these whilst trying to deal with normal enemies at the same time is a nightmare, and the two life points I lose in this playthrough are both due to the insects biting me repeatedly whilst I'm trying to deal with other enemies.

You only get three lives instead of four like in the previous games, so you've got to be more careful. If it wasn't for the Terror Bites I'd compare this game's difficulty to Time Crisis II. The last part of the final boss fight in particular is really easy, and the other bosses aren't too hard either (credit to Namco for not making you fight a giant bug monster -I was really sure when I first played this that I'd end up having to fight one).

Also a special mention has to go to how completely uncaring and unimpressed Giorgio (the guy I'm playing as) sounds every time he speaks in this.





Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3
Video length: 28:48
Game region:
Difficulty level: 2 out of 5

Playthrough with Wolverine, Chris and Nemesis. This version of the game adds several new characters and backgrounds, but in terms of the arcade mode it's the same thing as last time: really easy for the most part. Only Galactus provides a bit of challenge, but even then as long as you block well he's not that hard to take down.





World Heroes
Video length: 21:07
Game region:
Difficulty level: 3 out of 5

Playthrough of the Neo Geo Station version, using Hanzo. This is one of the easiest Neo Geo fighters to get through, although that's because you really only need 2 strategies. The first is this simple combo: jump kick followed by low kick. And if that isn't working too well, throw out a rekko zan, and if the opponent jumps towards you, knock them out of the air with the kou ryuu ha. Then just repeat this.
