View Full Version : Did one of the game's patches make the final boss more difficult???

I bought LBPV at launch and had no problem beating the final boss. Well, my save data corrupted and have to do it all over again. And, now I can not seem to beat the Puppeteer. Did one of the patches beef up his difficulty?

im not 100%, but i dont think the patches can make changes to the original story levels themselves

Actually they do can make changes to story levels, and they have done it before, but I really, really doubt the final boss' difficulty increased.

I bought this game at launch and got 100% and aced every level (including mini-games.). Well, my save data somehow corrupted and I had to do it all over from the beginning. The first time I fought the boss, I remember I beat him pretty easily but the second time had me pulling my hair out.

Jaja, now that I remember, something very similar happened to me. I defeated the boss the first time just dying once, but later on I found it so hard not to die multiple times until I aced it. I guess its just luck.

I still find it as easy as it was. If I die in that level, it's because I accidently fall on such a rocket.
I don't think the update changed anything.

I'm so happy I got all prizes of the story mode before any patches! :D

I didn't touch it. It should be the same as ever.

Well, the designer has spoken. Issue resolved.

It's not like there is only one level designer on the team, but no we didn't change a thing.

It may have become indirectly harder due to performance increases throughout by us.

Tee hee hee*

*not an admission of guilt

Well.. I just finished it all last night and loved the final bosses. ...but dang, a level link rather than a new level!!! CURSES!! lol

I played it so many times trying to beat that last boss that I got amazingly good at the first section.. the running one. I can ace that one quite easily. The 2nd one... argh!!! Not sure what it was about that, but that took me a ton of tries before I nailed him. Though one of my issues is I have a tendency to not be able to toss the bomb the correct direction if running or bouncing another direction. Don't know how many times in attempting to toss one left, I bounced up and tossed it into another bomb or just into the boss. Doh!!

Regardless wonderful job on the whole bunch of story levels. I felt like it regained that LBP1 charm again and there was a ton of some amazingly fun platforming. Kudos to you all. Proud to see how many of my friends were in that list of names at the end too. ;)

I still haven't beaten the final boss :P

I'm an impatient person so after I tred around 4 times I just gave up and moved on to creating.

I'll beat it one day.

What Sweinhoff said.

I must say, I was reading this forum some weeks back in anticipation of my vita coming in the new year and was excited to see there would be some good challenges.

A bit over a week ago I arrived at the end boss, tapping the badge in a bittersweet moment, it would soon be over, the story part anyway ;)

Went in, kicked ***, died once and thought that seems more than ace-able?! Then I came across a level link >< ...ah... The second part didn't go nearly so well, in fact I failed. My estimates on how soon I'd ace it changed a bit :p However, second try I did ace it!

The first section is quite easy, there's an even flow and you just roll with it going a split second ahead of what your seeing. The second part is certainly harder, but I gave priority to dodging the missile coming from the far side before attempting a throw and once you find the rhythm it goes ok. Not sure why, but I was feeling more tense doing the left side than the right.

I haven't aced it yet (yet). The first part is easy to ace, but the second part...
