Any reason to play on difficulty other than Easy?

    Are any of the achievements difficulty-gated? I'm just doing my first play and well, if I can do it on Easy, I will.

    Is there even as "Easy" in this game? I thought it was just "Medium". You unlock "Hard" when you beat the campaign, and you need to use it to unlock a hidden level or two ... and I think it might make getting high level items easier. But you can switch difficulties at any time, you don't have to start over or anything.

    So to answer your question ... you don't have to worry about difficulties in this game.

    Ya, there's an Easy difficulty setting. Currently playing on it and some of it is still a bitch. Highest level item I've gotten so far is a B-rank.

    Ah, my mistake then. Don't worry about having to play on Hard for a bit to finish up some achievements, by that time you should have enough good items to make it easier.

    Apparently, I was actually playing on Medium. Despite changing to "Easy" in the Option settings in the Main Menu, it was not actually playing me at Easy. I dunno what the hell that setting is for. Maybe Survival? Regardless, I finally beat that godawful Nightmare Train.

    Just a heads up for anyone playing any Namco games - the difficulty select is almost never effective in the campaign or story modes. Like in the Soulcalibur games it never really affects the side mission mode or the story modes.
    Looking to boost any MP achievements I don't have for any game I own.
