lol seriously

the duels in this game never fail with the atmosphere tbh

also playing this game is the closest i've ever come to using the screenshot feature :coffee:

region/act 2is definitely tougher than 1, which is great, I was feeling overpowered but now the difficulty is keeping me on my toes

I only have 2 complaints with the game

too many fox shrines and the fact the 'pulsating in the vicinity of collectibles' is on one of the very first armour sets you get and not a passive skill...means that I'm unlikely to use any of the fantastic looking armour over it.

Some of these boss fights are harder than 90% of what I faced in BB ffs

That one boss where you go to the mongol tower with the bridge was amazing. Whole mission was 10/10

Finished act 1, went back to the first island to clear everything. Firenze is right, way too many fox shrines. So far the game has been very enjoyable. It looks like the first island is actually the biggest both in size and content which is good, it would really be bloated if we get bigger and bigger areas.

Happy to hear enemies get harder, been smashing everyone now that I have a lot of upgrades. Story is fairly straightforward. Its good though, not a negative part of the game at all.

act 1 final mission:
Ryuzo with that top 10 anime betrayal ffs

I noticed that you don't need to colelct everything to get all the trophies so I stopped using traveller armour, upgraded a different armour fully, looking like I'm playing Nioh now Proud

I also feel overpowered for region 2 though, so the upped difficulty didn't last too long

ACT 1 Final Mission:

I actually wish the Ryuzo betrayal happened later, maybe during Act 2, let it build up more so it stung harder

and honestly Act 2 feels just as large, I think there are more side stories, which I'm really getting into now, the cast are pretty varied and interesting in their own ways. Game has already passed Horizon in my top 10 list for this gen. I think I'm enjoying it more than RDR2 too.

Siege of Yarkiawa mission was epic :bow: The Ghost stance is so goddamn badass. I actually recommend to clear story missions early because you unlock cool stuff like shoi door assassination and ghost stance which you can later use on side activities.

Also one of the mythic tales with the duel in night in a field of fireflies was so GOAT :bow: Whole mission had such amazing atmosphere.

yeah I've been playing by clearing all side content before progressing, someone else told me it probably pays to do main stuff first due to unlockables. I'm actually on the siege of yarikawa mission, next up for me.

the duels are GOAT. One I just did in a mythic tale gave me a lot of difficulty even on normal. Can see it being insane on hard.

Big fan of the side stories so far (the character related ones) some real good stuff in those

Completed the first act and clearly the game gets better and better especially the combat. I have to mention how great the skill trees are and every technique feel different than other. So far I cannot help but compare this game to John Wick movies. Linear story, extremely stylish and beautiful world and breath taking action.
My only gripe so far is that stealth is extremely OP or rather the enemies are very dumb or act dumb while doing the stealth mode.

my first legit platinum in 3.5 years Proud

tremendous game

story was predictable with few surprises but I enjoyed the execution tremendously, all side stories conluded in a fitting way

you could feel the emotion in the cutscenes too

great job by sucker punch, fantastic game, straight into my top 10 this gen, maybe sneaking into my top 5

On to Act 3 now. Looks like you get locked out of the fist two regions for a little while at least.

Story is straightforward but executed really well. Felt Jin was a boring character at first but he gets a lot of development which gives him some much needed edge. The other characters are good too.

Patch 1.05 adds the Lethal difficulty setting, which is supposedly a lot more difficult than the hard setting. Apparently, it doubles both damage dealt and damage received, among other changes, like a tighter window for dodges and parries, more aggressive enemies that detect you far more easily from distance and in stealth. The patch also adds the lowered intensity setting, which has the opposite effect, and makes the game far more forgiving in every aspect. Lastly, bigger subtitles and customisable subtitle colors.

yeah, Nioh is on the lower end of my top 10

combat in Nioh is better, of course

but I enjoyed my time with Tsushima more

My biggest issue with the game by far is the camera.

Quite a few standoffs I lost because view of the attackers was blocked ffs

I've had the same issue on a few occasions. It's not a big deal, but it's slightly frustrating. I tried slashing purely on intuition and guesswork a few times when enemies were overlapping each other and there was tall grass or branches and shit blocking my line of sight, but it's not a reliable method. Good thing I never do standoffs unless I need those skill orbs.

I'm still in act 2 and I've finished everything in the first area. It's a good, quite polished game. I can't confidently say it's in my top 10 of this generation, at this point. Since you mentioned it @Firenze, I personally preferred both the variety of enemies and story of Horizon Zero Dawn, but I suppose that might change by the time I finish this game (hopefully, by the end of the weekend). The rock climbing to hidden shrines and artifacts reminds me of Uncharted/Tomb Raider. It's well implemented, and even part of the main story to some extent, but I wish they'd fleshed it out a bit more. Also, I'm sick and tired of shrines lol.

Game looks gorgeous. Combat is fun, and there are a lot of tools and gadgets to use when up against crowds of enemies. They clearly put a lot of love and effort into the classic Samurai movie theme and even added some modern twists to it, and there are free cosmetic items, which is a rare sight these days. I do think the combat is quite easy, though. I suppose it wasn't designed for people like me, who have above average reflexes Razz

I tried turning it up to the new difficulty setting, but the only thing that became harder to deal with was archers firing at you from multiple directions and enemies attacking with more intensity - which was more stressful than fun or challenging in the way that I had in mind. It's better than simply making everyone a hard-hitting, meat tank, though. Some of the boss fights were a step up in difficulty, which was a really nice change of pace from the usual combat.

The side quests have been alright. I appreciate that there aren't many fetch quests. The mythic quests are clearly of much higher quality. I wish there'd been more of those, but I have to stop expecting Witcher 3 quality from the side content in games.

Wow, that’s a pretty massive grind. I considered doing it since I’ve already cleared out all sidequests and the vast majority of what the game has to offer, but there’s just now way I’ll travel around to look for collectibles and bow to hidden shrines that I’ve already been to. Way too much of a chore for me. And I hate collectibles.

That said, I cleared out everything under the exploration tab. Bowing to hidden shrines and gathering artifacts, crickets, flowers, records and Sashimono banners is all that’s left. It’s not difficult if you follow the guiding wind individually, but that’s seriously not fucking fun. Congratulations, but it’s not for me Mad
