Sekiro : Shadows Die Twice

Recommended Posts

I've not been playing it, partly cause returning to work and having to cook as soon as I get back saps my chi reserves and I can't be a completely dedicated master ninja that way

 

Also partly cause I'm still not really enjoying it much. It feels a bit at odds with itself, it might be more linear than Souls/BloodBorne but it is still similar enough in its layout. Souls games have the lore mysteries and weird equipment as a reason to explore their intricate worlds. But Sekiro doesn't have this as much, it's way more about combat. I just feel like it would be better served by a mission based structure like a pure action game, or like Tenchu was.

 

I've also found myself just running past loads of fights that aren't bosses cause there isn't really a good reason to fight the easy basic mobs when they don't give anything other than skill points

 

I preferred Dark Souls II to this, to put it into context.

No point anyone else beating this now, we already know who the top three on the forum are. Everyone else can just go home.

It's ok, I wasn't planning on beating it anyway. 

 

I'll play it some more, get stuck, have a massive tantrum & then not play it again cos I'm still too shit at it.

Played this for the first time in a couple of weeks and made some good progress, although:

 

Spoiler

 

I was exploring Senpou Temple and hit a wall. Not a difficulty wall, a “where the piss do I go now” wall. 

 

I then found out that I’ve missed an entire section of Ashina Castle, including a main boss!

 

What a silly sausage I am!!

 

I’m now coming to the conclusion that I must have missed so much stuff, and I thought I was being quite thorough

I hit that same roadblock, so I'm going to wait for your next post to work out where to go next lol

 

Anyway, speaking of one armed Sekiro players, Danny O'Dwyer had a disabled gamer on to talk about accessibility in games

On where to go next...

 

Spoiler

You have to beat Genishirio in the castle to unlock the rest of the temple.

I see this thread is dead now, cowards. 

 

Played some more last night for the channel.

 

Found the key that unlocks the place that holds the spear attachment. I missed it on my first playthrough and had to buy the spear at endgame from that little box for like 2000+ so finding it this time was a relief.

 

Managed to beat that Seven Spears lad on my first try which was nice, he trashed me when I played it a few weeks ago.

 

Managed to clear the Senpou Temple area (at least what I can clear at this point of the game) so moved on to Ashina Depths now. Not looking forward to fighting Snake Eyes again, I hate that fucker, but it’s gotta be done.  

 

We drank a few beers while playing so were pretty sloppy by the end of the session, but we had a good laugh playing it and that’s really all that matters.

I take it everyone has given up then?

 

I started a new game today and managed to get to Genishiro on the castle roof in 2 and a half hours, including defeating Lady Butterfly. 

 

He's giving me a bit of trouble, I can't seem to get my parry's right so I've turned it off to make some food and grab a coffee. Next time I'm on I'll go exploring, maybe clear Senpou Temple area and access the warp point for later on, then try Genishiro again with a bit more health.

Two trips to Taiwan, one for four days then one for a full week, kind of interrupted my flow with this game. I came back and I just wanted to play something chill. But I will go back to it.
