Mark of the Ninja is the best arcade game in years. Recently I played the Mark of Serenity level & I didn't use the Mark of Serenity once. Check out these 4 clips from the live stream. Also we're giving away 2 codes for MotN on XBLA.
*All these clips below are from GoukiJones' TV Live Stream.
**Check out my review for Mark of the Ninja.
I don't know what got into me that day. Actually I do. [cough, cough] I thot it would be a good idea to try & mess with as much of Mark of the Ninja as I could. Trying to kill every enemy. This was especially challenging on the level where I didn't have a weapon & could not execute the execution. I am the excellence of execution Jimmy! I did it tho, everybody died. *New Game Plus mode [On]
Pro-tips MotN 101. You can throw unconscious bodies from high levels & the fall will kill them for sure. First throw that dead body at another guard, watch him freak out & in his terror back up & fall off the high platform. Then chuck the body he just saw right over the edge as well. Double!
You can also use the environment to set traps. In this video below, the baddies have a radar & are super sensitive to movement & sound. It's very challenging to fight these baddies 1 on 1. The hanging explosive devices & exploding hiding spots were perfectly to assist you in these situations.

The promo had to be around 30 seconds, I want to put this at the end of some our videos, because IT IS a commercial. Jimmys gotta make money. Plus it had to be fun and interesting. Such as me in my underwear as seen previously on Gouki.com. FnJimmy winning by time out chip cheese. I also wanted to do that fast pace edit cut real quick type effect. How did I do?
