Another FROM game gets a low 90s average. In other news, water is wet.

Anyway, I'm stupid hyped and my preload for tonight is ready

Kazenji
The HD size needed is low when installing from a Disc. Only 12.5GB i was expecting it to be bigger.

Kazenji
After playing it for a while, I want From Software to make a new Tenchu game.

Got to my first boss. Fuked.

Lady butterfly is pushing my shit in. I can get past phase one no problem now by deflecting the holy shit out of her byt phase two with the stupid butterflies and specters she spawns is fkn retarded. The butterflies especially are just free unblockable damage for her.

Wtf man, I've been managing the dragonrot well before her. Now I've died more times than the entire game leading up to this. Considering just leaving and coming back for her.

Kazenji
Also what do you do with the money that you collect in the game or is that stuff similar to collecting Souls in a Dark Souls game?

Arachnid1
I FUKING DID IT! Holy SHIT what a crackhead of a boss battle. Definitely the hardest first boss in a Soulsborne game. 6 minutes straight of insanely fast paced deflecting and getting deflected and perfect timing on everything. Punished the hell out of any misstep. Legit barely had time to heal once the entire battle.

EDIT: I think that first boss was made to be a deflect skill check. After her, I'm legit murdering every enemy and miniboss I come across and barely need stealth. She was really good practice for getting this system down. Things are finally clicking.

NemeBro
shut up

Arachnid1
I'll fkn come to your house and brutalize ur @ss

Kazenji
When do you start using skill points?....currently have 3 of them.

Arachnid1
It'll open up pretty early on, keep going

I played for a couple hours yesterday. Got slapped by that red eyed ogre a couple times and called it a day.

Kazenji
Found where the Mist Raven Prosthetic tool is, Just gotta beat that damn blue ninja.

Arachnid1
Love that thing. Best prosthetic so far IMO

Just got to that dick from the tutorial and he's wrecking me. I think I've had a good 20 tries against him.

Kazenji
Had a few attempts at fighting Lady butterfly, Might came back to her on.

I'm guessing you've already run into the Kitebombing WOOOOO guy then? laughing

Also, which part is messing you up?

It was Genichiro Ashina but I beat him a little after posting that. Now I'm in the last area of the game fighting True Corrupted Monk and getting wrecked, but doing better ever time

Kazenji
Found my first memorial mob and i was already up to Gyoubu Masataka. Had to go back to the one before Outskirts Wall Stairway to get that firecracker prosthetic

also i accidentally used up a a Dragon blood droplet, Thought you had to go to the person that's affected with the Dragon rot and use it near them. Only finding out after the menu at those sculptor's idol had the option to that.

Arachnid1
Don't worry about it, you'll find plenty more throughout the game. They're really only useful for the optional side quests (if the NPC is sick with dragonrot, they cant continue their narrative).

Kazenji
Up to the Flaming bull now....ugh.

NewGuy01
Those flying shirken guys are a menace to society.

Fair enough there's some games out there that i don't like too, But i wouldn't say they're a bad game.

Arachnid1
He did say it was a great game all around. It's just not for him (he was fairer to the game than Slant Mag who gave it a 40/100). He'd still recommend it. He said the same about Mass Effect, RTSs, and fighting games. I agree with most of those points too.

The game does force you to play a very specific way. It's a dex build hacknslash based around parrying from start to finish, but that's because it's more of an action game than an RPG this time around. He's also right about the stealth being kind of finicky (he was kinder to this aspect than I would be; the stealth is flat out bad IMO).

His complaints were:

-Sometimes the game feels difficult to the point of being cheap (more artificial than Souls). This is the only point he made that I disagree with. Once you get the mechanics down (he did say he still sucked at the game), the game is by far easier than other Soulsborne games. The boss that gave me the most trouble was Genichiro Ashina (the mid game boss) but even he went down quicker than bosses like Ludwig, Fume Knight, or Pontiff (he took around 22 tries as a guess). Otherwise, four bosses went down first try, 5 went down 2-4 tries, one boss took 10 tries, and I still have some left. A few of the minibosses gave me trouble (the two hardest spear guys took probably close to 10 tries, first ogre and the fat drunken swordsman took around 5, a late game miniboss named O'Rin of the water was absolutely brutal and took around 15 tries as a guess), but most went down first or second try.

-His other complaint was the camera. This got me killed a good few times. Sometimes it just completely unlocks against some of the more mobile enemies. With some enemies it's just more of a hinderance. Still, it's manageable.

I only have a few complaints but overall I'm still enjoying it.

There's a few other games like that out there which i'm a bit like that too myself


as for this game don't go in expecting to play it like a Dark Souls game for new people that are gonna pick it up...Also I've had that trouble with the camera too, When i was fighting Gyoubu Masataka i was locked onto him and doing good and then all of a sudden the camera decides to lose sight of him.

NewGuy01
Ran into Genichiro again the other day. I was sort of just exploring and hopped into the boss arena by accident, was not looking for that fight. I only attempted it once, and didn't feel like I was having too hard of a time dealing with his attacks, but goddamn. How the hell are you expected to get his health down? We were at it for like 5 minutes, and I barely dented his first health bar.

Kazenji
Been reading that they want to add a easy mode to this game for players new to a Fromsoftware game.

Not too far yet, beat the first boss and am clearing the Mirata Estate now.

Kazenji
I didn't even fight him, Just did what NewGuy01 said....I grabbed the item and then the run **** outta there.

NemeBro
He's pretty wild before you upgrade your stats at all. Throwing an oil pot on him and using the flame vent made him a lot more manageable. thumb up

Stop projecting your real self into video games.

This game looks fairly interesting and I may pick it up after I fully dissect every part of DMC5.

Kazenji
So you're suggesting that i'm a ninja in real life?....sounds good to me, Quan.

NewGuy01
Gave it another go today, and beat Genichiro. He actually wasn't so bad after the first couple tries; putting aside his extra phase, he was way easier to manage than some of the minibosses I've come across.

Kazenji
