Yeah yeah, read a guide or whatever. But I did that with Eternal Darkness and I "wasted" two whole levels using the guide when I could have completed them on my own. I don't want this to happen with MP, so tell me: how do you defeat the rock boss geezer? I'm using a dodge ice beam, use thermal visor to pinpoint weak spot, and missile firing at him, but I always run out of missiles and it always manages to kill me before I get anywhere near the end of his energy bar. Help, please?

I smashed that boss. Can't remember how but I coasted to an easy victory.

Yeah, still can't beat the guy. You know you're suposed to roll into a ball when he does so to get away? Well by the time I do that, he's laready about to crush me, so I don't see the point. Plus, his ice beams always get me, even though I double jump and double dash like a lunatic.

How many energy tanks do you have when facing Thardus, just for reference?

You know when he throws the boulders at you?

If you shoot them they will give you health and missles.

One technique that worked very well for me on that boss is simply blast the crap outta it! :-D

As for getting lost, well I turned the hints off and I had no problems, there were a few tough puzzles, but alien planets shouldn't really have road signs, should they? :-P

This game really annoys me. I'm always getting lost, wandering what I've missed and what to do next. At the moment, I'm just stuck in a maze.

INstead of missles all the time, charge up your wave weapon and fire that. A powered up wave beam weapon will have the same effect.
