Perfected Marginal on Extreme.
This is an 8-star Extreme song, since the remaining 7-star Extreme songs are apparently too difficult for me. Since this song appeared in the first Project Diva and I perfected it there, I imagined I would have a better chance with it, even if it’s an 8-star.
This song is fast that occasionally the notes slip by my thumb. The good news is that I don’t have to worry about pressing button too early; I’ve never had such case while playing this song, so I can just focus on pressing the right button.
Now this song has 2 tricky parts. The first is a few sequences of fast three notes, with the last note being a double-tap note. Fortunately there are only two different combinations: triangle-triangle-double-square and x-x-double-circle, so once I kept that in mind, it wasn’t much of a trouble.
The second is sequences of fast two notes, where the first note is a double-tap note and the second note is a normal note. I had trouble with this one until I realized that I can actually double-tap twice, and the game will treat it as correct. After knowing this, it wasn’t much of a trouble either.
On my last try, I used 2 help item chances, all because I pressed certain notes too late.
I wonder which Extreme songs I can perfect next.. I tried Just Be Friends, it was quite manageable, until it dropped some freaky circle and square combination notes on me. I never managed to figure out the nature of that combination, but I guess I shall withdraw and take a break for now…
