Not currently but I'm definitely going to be buying Sekiro on Friday and giving it a try. I'll definitely post about it and I look forward to hearing Samachan's experience with the game.

I've played bits of it and it's been interesting and fun thus far. Unfortunately my GPU didn't really meet the minimum requirements and is randomly crashing and I have to play on the lowest possible setting which takes away a lot from the game. I'm wondering if I should get a new card.

I've played about 6 hours so far, very fun game. Combat and movement are very different from Dark Souls but I like it a lot. Grappling around is very fun, and so is the fast paced parry-based sword combat. I'm still unlearning managing a stamina bar and my dodge having i-frames which has led to me dying a lot. I already have 3 rot essences! I'm still confused as to how the heck the resurrection mechanic and the dragon rot all work but I'm sure I'll figure it out eventually.

I got a little stuck on the Chained Ogre boss (his lunging grab is so hard to dodge!) but now I'm in a canyon with a big snake who does not like me very much. It's a pretty cool set piece. There was another route I could have taken but it was a scary cave with a warning outside of it. I went far enough in to see some kinda pale hunched over goblin with a big glowing sword and chickened out.

I'm not yet as far as ahead as you are but I agree the fast paced combat is very fun. Most people probably had a lot of trouble playing it like DS and I did too but I'm adopting a Tenchu approach and it really reminds me of the series.

 No.21410

>>21409
I have not played Tenchu but I've heard people make the comparison. I just got to the point where I unlocked the skill trees, they add a lot of cool options to combat which I'm excited for. I got an ability that lets me stomp down on an incoming thrust with a well-timed dodge towards which is so much fun to use on spear dudes. The game does a good job of making you feel like a super powered ninja while still being rewardingly difficult.

I wish I knew if there was a respec in the game or not though, I'm saving my skill points right now because you can find combat style manuals that give you whole extra skill trees and I don't wanna waste points. DS2 and DS3 both had a respec in them though so I imagine there's probably a way in this game.

 No.21411

Also I appreciate that despite there being a full English dub, the default audio setting is Japanese with subtitles, I don't think I've seen a game do that before

don't do that. every time you die you lose half your EXP

 No.21413

Woah, I just beat Lady Butterfly, that was a really fun boss fight. Probably the hardest I've gotten stuck on a boss thus far, but it totally gave me that same feeling of incremental improvement and eventual success that I really was hoping for out of this games bosses. I wasn't keeping track but it took me at least 10 tries. I quickly ran out of Snap Seeds which made her second phase a lot harder, but still very doable. Learning how to combine parries and dodges simultaneously to get away from her homing butterflies and not die to her melee attacks felt really satisfying once I had it figured out.

Wait I thought you only lost half your progress to your next point?

still better to use it, you need to unlock enough shinobi skills to get the visceral kill autoheal. It's not called viscerals but you know what I mean

 No.21415

Well I've gotten to the point where the game opens up a lot. I've died every which of the 4 ways available to me I go though. I can go fight the sword and bow dude from the tutorial on top of a tower, a headless demon who I need to waste consumables on to even attempt in a spooky cave, a spear guy who spams ghost skulls at you in a different spooky cave, or I can try to explore a cliff fortress full of Tuskan raider looking guys

I have 3-4 paths to choose from Ashina Castle, Ashina Depths/Abandoned Dungeon, Temple.

 No.21422

>>21421
You haven't done Ashina Castle yet? That's probably going to be the easiest one then. I thought you had to go through Abandoned Dungeon to get to both Ashina Depths and Kongou Temple. I haven't done Abandoned Dungeon yet so I have yet to explore three of those places. I'm in Sunken Valley right now, fighting a giant white monkey. Which major bosses have you beaten so far? Did you beat Genichiro?

 No.21423

>>21422
No, not yet. I have yet to reach Sunken Valley, I chose to explore the other places. I've only beaten Gyoubu and Lady Butterfly.

 No.21424

Turns out I totally missed a path in the castle, past the big bell ogre there's a route I hadn't explored yet, looks like I can put off fighting the miniboss I was stuck on. I'm a fair bit into the temple area now. Those double headed spear guys are pretty tough.
>>21423
Ah, I'd say definitely go do that then, I think the game expects you to have by now. I found him a lot easier than Lady Butterfly. You haven't managed to kill the purple orb dude in Abandoned Dungeon yet have you? And if you have, how?!

 No.21425

>>21424
Which miniboss? No, not yet I think he is an apparition type similar to the headless ogre in the cave.

 No.21426

>>21425
The big white monkey in Bodhisattva valley. I only gave him two tries though, I'm sure I could beat him if I tried some more, but I'm liking exploring the temple right now. There's also some cave that a Memorial Mob guy warned me not to go in because of snake gods which sounds exciting.
>I think he is an apparition type similar to the headless ogre in the cave.
No he takes damage as normal, he's just really hard and spams projectiles. I almost got him down one health bar but it's so hard to get a hit in on him

I took almost 20 tries to beat Lady Butterfly, should be doable since you've beaten Gyoubu. For the bull, get the hand cannon upgrade from the merchant in the area next to the battlefield with Gyoubu.

 No.21431

I would honestly save Lady Butterfly for after the Ashina Castle boss, she's a lot harder than him imo and by the time you clear Ashina Castle you should have some extra HP and attack. The bull gets a lot easier with what >>21430 suggested. Also my trick to beating him was to only try to parry as a last resort, and try to stay next to or behind him with dodges while you smack him.

Wow, Sands of Destruction has some of the worst voice acting I've ever heard. I'm considering getting the Japanese version just so I can pay attention to it without laughing out a kidney every line of dialogue. I hope the rest of the game is this good.

 No.21433

Holy heck this part on the roof where you get swarmed by purple one-armed ninjas is really hard, I can barely take on one of them and once three of them are on you it just feels unfair. As soon as you get close to posture breaking one he backs off and the others attack. I dunno if anyone else is this far but it's at Ashina Castle, after it gets invaded and you lose access to its idols.

 No.21434

I had a hard time taking on Genichiro because I couldn't get the lightning reversal right but finally managed to edge it. Also managed to beat the three monkeys.

>>21433
Since you've beaten Genichiro before exploring the temple, I was wondering if you did get to meet the priest in the main hall of the temple?

 No.21435

>>21434
>Lightning Reversal
I actually didn't even use that once, I just dodged and ran around his big lightning attacks. I'm actually pretty proud that I sightread his second phase, even though I did die to his first two times.
>Also managed to beat the three monkeys.
Wouldn't be a FromSoft game without at least one silly gimmick boss fight.
>I was wondering if you did get to meet the priest in the main hall of the temple?
You mean the one in the illusory halls where you "fight" the monkeys? Other than him, I don't think so, what does he say? I've read that this game has multiple endings and it's pretty hard to get the "true" ending blind, so once I beat it I'll probably play again with the aid of a wiki or some such.

 No.21436

You can't meet her yet, the illusory hall wasn't accessible then. There is a head priest that looks like the mummified priest enemies but with a yellow robe sitting before the bell instead. He tells you that the Divine Child is in the inner sanctum and hands you an item to give her if you meet her.

 No.21439

>>21437
A bit slow but I've finally caught up. Have any of you killed off the headless enemies?

 No.21440

I think I'm almost done with the game, I'm certainly in the last area. These weird pale dragon dudes are really obnoxious. They instakill you if they look at you for too long, and you can't rez from it… Also the Divine Child is really cute, make sure to visit her occasionally.
>>21439
I killed off all three of them, they're a real pain in the butt though. Using Divine Confetti makes the fight a lot easier, you can basically just DPS race them if you remember to retreat and use Pacifying Agent before your terror gauge fills. You get a kinda neat reward from them.

 No.21441

>>21439
Yeah I went back and killed them, somewhat easy to handle with divine confetti but his one shot moves are still a pain to deal with.

It is optional so try not to miss it. The kid is going to be waiting at the final boss room and rather than rushing for that you should go back to that area in Ashina where you fought the general on the horse. (I think he was the very first real boss in the game) That's where you find Demon of Hate.

 No.21453

Got him in only 19 tries! That was a really fun boss, I like how you have to fight him very differently than most of the other bosses in the game, deflections and blocking really do you no good and you have to just run and dodge a lot.

 No.21454

Well I'm on what I assume is the final boss of Sekiro and it's pretty crazy. I gave it 3 tries and managed to get him to the second phase twice, but I think I'm gonna save it for tomorrow, my boss grinding batteries were depleted by Demon of Hatred. This fight seems pretty tough!

I beat Sekiro! Got the ending with the Divine Child too. That was a really great game, some of the most fun combat in a game that I've ever played and the difficulty level was just right, I really wasn't ever frustrated but it was still a challenge. Definitely got my moneys worth out of it and I'm excited for future DLC, which From has a pretty good track record with. I really enjoyed all the Dark Souls DLC.

 No.21457

Finally completed Sekiro, got the same ending as yuyu. Great and fun game but not without flaws. Considering the Divine Child ending, I'm hoping there would be a sequel. Seems like a reference to journey to the west and possibly a connection to the dragons in the souls series.

Nice, congrats! I thought the final boss was a lot of fun. I think I'm going to play through a second time with the harder difficulty.
>Great and fun game but not without flaws.
What were your complaints with it, out of curiosity? The biggest thing I didn't like about it was the stealth aspect and how the game kind of forces you into using it by giving you encounters that are really unfair unless you cheese some of the enemies, which felt kinda unrewarding to me. Also a lot of the "stealthing" amounts to just abusing bad AI and not actually being sneaky, which further makes those encounters feel unrewarding.

That and I feel like some of the prosthetic tools were pretty underutilized, but that's more on me than the game. I was just way more likely to take damage trying to make things like the fan, the spear, and the feather work on normal enemies, and against bosses I either used the one the game explicitly tells you to use or didn't use anything at all, because again, futzing around with tools was just making the fight harder for me. For most of the game I used the flame blast, the firecracker, the shuriken, and occasionally sabimaru.

 No.21460

>>21459
Both points you've made are spot on, I'd also expand that there is a lack of flow between the gameplay transition of exploring and fighting normal enemies versus the boss duels. As you've mentioned, while I liked the stealth gameplay, the awful AI takes away a lot of satisfaction from it. I didn't use the prosthetic tools much either and barely upgraded it but I've been reading up on things related to the game and it seems that together with combat arts, could provide a variety of different ways to play the game and fight bosses.

Since it's probably also made in the same engine as the souls series and it having similar interfaces, I can't help but compare the two and while I appreciate it being a different game, I feel like the absence of certain elements from the souls series somewhat regrettable. My biggest gripe with the game though would be that I feel that the game is too short, especially in comparison to other From Software titles although it is still significant compared to most modern games. The side quests and NPCs are also weaker than their other titles and there are a lot of unnecessary NPCs that only serves as a waypoint to progress the direction of the game like the monk in the hidden forest and the basket guy. I've read that for the vendors, Miyazaki only directly designed the pot nobles and it shows as they were the only ones that are remotely interesting. I'd also like to add that considering the duel-like battle system, I thought that PvP might've been fun. The location design was in general gorgeous but there are a few places where it felt lacking such as the depths which felt like a half assed attempt to replicate the area from Souls and the Fountainhead Palace which was actually brilliant but I was expecting the "palace" to be another area instead of a dingy house.

Anyway, I really like the setting being in the east instead of the usual medieval trope and I hope Japanese devs would come up with more games like it as it used to be in the past with games such as tenchu and way of the samurai. I've always hoped for a Souls game set in the east and whilst this is not exactly it, it's still a great game overall with some great moments and gave me a taste of what it could be. I'd still love to see a sequel though.

 No.21464

>>21462
I haven't played Bloodborne or Demon's Souls, but I found the game to be closest to Dark Souls 3, which in turn is the closest of those games to Bloodborne, or so I hear. At least in that it's fast paced and the combat is very frenetic rather than methodical like Dark Souls 1. That said, it's really a wholly different game, the only similarities between it and the other Hidetaka Miyazaki games are some structural things like how the world and enemies are laid out, the difficulty, the progression of your healing flask, etc. The combat is it's own thing entirely, and the RPG elements are pretty much wholly gone, as is the multiplayer. Great game though, I hope you are able to play it soon! Like anonymous said, if you can't afford it, there's nothing wrong with pirating it.

 No.21465

>>21464
>and the RPG elements are pretty much wholly gone
Bit of a non-sequitur, but am I the only one who never cared for these in action games? The whole idea of an action RPG seems to just be an excuse to not have to design harder and harder levels and puzzles for a player that gets better at the game, substituting it with bigger numbers and more grinding. I say this as someone who likes actual RPGs very much.

I refer to the remake as "Resident Evil 2" because it doesn't have "remake" in the official title, and the devs started referring to it as a "reimagining" instead of a "remake", and I'm stupid anal about stuff like that and don't want to screw up the "official" name.

I mostly bought used carts for cheap since I didn't care about boxes anyway.
I know, I'm a piece of shit. I also stole a shiny Pokemon from a Puerto Rican kid in my neighborhood. I asked him to trade it to my cart so I could evolve it for him, without any intentions of trading it back, and I never did.
I still have a Shiny Crobat on one of my old Ruby carts.
To be fair that kid and his buddy used to play hide and go seek without telling me I was it whenever I left the house, so I feel somewhat justified in my perfidy.

It's a mix of believing secession was constitutional, being disappointed with our current local governments, genuinely liking Southern folks, and showing signs of general rebellion against society. Especially that last one, though.

Finishing up Stella Glow. I hadn't heard of this game before and was surprised at how high quality it was.

+ Each character feels like they have their own unique play style
+ Cute girls
+ You can marry the bad girl
+ Engaging story
+ Great OST
+ Nice SRPG gameplay

Only thing I didn't like was how slow it felt sometimes. Early game can be physically painful, and I would unironically say it gets good about 15-20 hours in. (That's when plot starts developing and you start getting better items.) If you have the patience, you could enjoy this fantastic game. Its definitely one of the better I've played.

Stella Glow was great. It's pretty grindy at some points and a lot of the story is a ripoff of Luminous Arc but I really enjoyed it.
>>21586
They're usually called TRPGs in the west. Some people make a distinction that SRPG refers specifically only to the FFT/Tactics Ogre type of game while TRPG refers to stuff on a smaller scale like Radiant Historia with some basic tactical thinking required but the terms are interchangeable if you ask me since that kind of thing is pretty standard in the RPG genre as a whole and calling it "strategy" in the first place is kind of a misnomer anyways. Technically a true strategy RPG would be something like Nobunaga's Ambition but those are pretty rare and the more strategic get the less RPG they tend to get.

 No.21589

>Also you can emulate it
If you have an actual 3DS it's pretty trivial to install CFW and pirate games. It's pretty comfy and once you get it set up feels less clunky than the old R4 cards and stuff. I never really enjoyed playing DS games on an emulator.

>It's pretty grindy at some points

It actually wasn't grindy at all and I forgot to include that in my post. I've probably only done the free battle missions maybe a couple times, the leveling system is really good in that it catches you up with the story missions pretty fast.

>They're usually called TRPGs


I've only seen people refer to them as SRPGs and I'm going to keep calling them that…

 No.21591

Ah, crap. I meant to write slow and wrote grindy on accident. Yeah, the leveling is pretty convenient, pretty much the same as Luminous Arc if I remember correctly. Actually I felt like, just like with Luminous Arc, it was a bit too forgiving and fast but that that might just be because I tend to do extra free battles and try to keep everyone at the same level.

So it won't use AR as Go did and there is a quest system and some form of narrative. I sure hope so, the DQ series is generally not as well known as pokemon in the west and only in recent years have they been truly expanding into the western market. DQX was never released in the west as far as I'm aware. Also, the fact that it plays more like an RPG and less open-ended as Go did would probably make it harder to localise.

I think what helps DoL is having the little avatar showing what you look like. Having to constantly check back and see what I now look like in CoC and Lilith's Throne takes away a bit of the enjoyment

 No.22057

I think the reason is that DoL has a light anime-esque flare to it
it's also a lot less fetishy than, say, Lilith's Throne

 No.22065

>>22022
They are fun but my issue with CoC and DoL is that it's way too hard to play the game in such a way that it caters to your fetishes and instead you end up getting brutally raped or growing penises for fingers or something when all I wanted to do was sex my best friend or a cute mouse girl

It's almost like japan didn't waste a ton of money and resources trying to imitate western shit when the market was already flooded with western shit and competition was impossible for a whole console generation and finally managed to get back on their feet and catch up in record time by going back to their roots and making full use of their galapagos uniqueness.

Nope, that didn't happen. Get us those western hacks and let kojima waste another billion yen pretending hollywood likes him.

I don't completely grasp your point but I'll assume we're on the same page. I think this boils down partially to a case of the grass is greener plus a lack of self-confidence on the part of the Japanese devs. The global market is a huge slice of the pie the Japanese industry have been desperately trying to penetrate in the last decade or so, even more so with the contraction of the domestic market. Most of these devs lacks the experience and knowledge of the global market and that brings them to seek western collaborators. Others are disillusioned by the local industries and its work culture and are drawn by the "foreign" industry which they think are different from the homogenous local industry. As you've mentioned, they don't realize that the charm of their creation is in their unique ideas that stems from their prior isolation and that what globalization brings instead is a streamlined, uniform approach to design that ironically waters down the so-called diversity of cultures. The Japanese game industry have seen a slight resurgence in recent years as you've mentioned and I do hope they would grow to become as dominant as they once were. It's frankly frustrating to see Japanese related stuff being made by western developers to receive acclaim when the Japanese themselves turn a blind eye to it.

This recent interview with the creator of the Katamari series might be relevant.

I usually try not to ride the cynicism train that you all are on so hard, but I do have trouble imagining what the Game of Thrones guy is going to bring to this game other than name recognition from its hordes of fans. All of Froms recent games have been fantastic at taking an established mythology and aesthetic and putting their own unique spin on it, and while I haven't seen Game of Thrones, it looks to me like very generic medieval fantasy. The trailer had some cool stuff in it though, I liked the hammering dude with his body cracking apart.

I remember saying similar things about anime when people were celebrating Space Dandy being aired on US TV the before it aired in Japan, and to an extent simulcasts in general. That sort of thing represents a possibility for anime to make considerations towards appeasing an international market rather than a Japanese one, but it's that same niche appeal that made people like me like it in the first place.

Yes and they even made a documentary on the lost decade of videogame development and how the japanese industry saved itself by going back to its roots.

>It's frankly frustrating to see Japanese related stuff being made by western developers to receive acclaim when the Japanese themselves turn a blind eye to it.

Can you give me some examples of this?

>bitsummit

That's another western attack vector aimed at subverting the doujin subculture so the western indie circlejerk can feed on its corpse.

>>22111
I honestly hope it's just a one-off thing and that this and kojima are the exceptions, but I look at that flea market Tolkien, "ring" in the game's title and I can't help but look back west and see this as nothing but another pivot to establish the guy as the future lore master at the helm of amazon's take on the lord of the rings.

Ghost of Tsushima I think was the most recently hyped, there are probably more but they are not as big a project. Do you have a link to the documentary? I don't really know much about bitsummit, could you elaborate more on your point?

Bitsummit'e entire operation is directed at "raising awareness" to western indie gaming. They're funded by western companies first and japanese companies (a distant) second. I remember looking into it when it started and as soon as I saw valve as a main sponsor I could smell the long con a mile away.

It seems like you can't see information on the previous events so I won't delve deeper there, but check out what they've got going this year. Most speakers are westerners and their keynotes are all the kind of blogposting that has plagued GDC over the years. Creators of games who would be put to shame by a comiket kusoge made by a college freshman are presented as great authorities and the games awarded are mostly the same kind of arthouse bullshit that has sterilized the independent game making environment in the west. Mind you, there's a couple alright games here and there but they, like the token japanese speakers, are only there as stepping stones to make the award-winning games look as good or better in what I can only believe to be a second coming of the indie awards scams happening in the west. Awards are structured in such a way that the japanese get their own category so there's a spot open for westerners to win the grand prize. People with no taste who spent their whole career making faux retro teaching art. Force-feeding the american retro canon.

Change the language to japanese. Not once do you see the word doujin, but indie is plastered everywhere. Even when ZUN of all people went there as a speaker, he was presented as a japanese "indie" creator. Meanwhile, take a look at comiket game trailers by year since bitsummit came around and you'll notice a trend of adding those laurel graphics to indicate indie awards. Obviously those almost never make it past "you were here" consolation awards and you can take an educated guess why.

I always find it odd how people advocates indie as something groundbreaking and new that stands against the large publishers when the Japanese doujin scene have been around for ages. I don't know why they are trying to classify the two as separate but this extends beyond gaming and even in the film and music industry there are instances where indie and independent are now categorized as different entities.

Western indie games have been around for just as long too. They've just gotten more popular in the past fifteen years or so with both the growth in popularity of video games in general and disillusionment with corporate productions. I wouldn't call doujin soft the same thing since the culture and relationship to the commercial market is different but it's becoming more like western indie games in recent years with more emphasis on digital distribution and awareness of foreign audiences and corporate interests.

As for music and movies though in the last several decades "indie" has referred more to certain streams within "alternative" genres, many of which are already commercially successful, rather than to their actual independence from major corporate labels or studios. Independent music and film has also existed since the beginning and still does whether or not it conforms to genre expectations.

The gameplay looks interesting, it's literally a rice farming sim with side-scrolling action. Amazed to learn that Edelweiss is a two person project and the whole game is mostly made by only the two of them. Looks like they put a lot of effort into it, I hope it does well.
