Anybody bought this game? What are your thoughts?

I really like it so far. It's like a mashup of Dark Souls, Ninja Gaiden Sigma and Onimusha. Pretty difficult game but I guess it doesn't bother me much since the Souls series taught me how to be patient.

Screw the 2nd boss, oh gawd why. I was doing gud but now it wants me to git even more gud..............*throws ps4 out window* Still easier then DS and Bloodborne xD

This is pretty much as close to Onimusha as us fans are going to get

Finished the first mission a little while ago. I didn't have much trouble with it beyond a few points (rooftop yokai and the boss) and even those weren't too bad after a little practice. Also the tutorial showing up after the prologue area was really confusing. As was the fact that a bunch of stuff was then repeated again in the first mission. Makes me wonder if the Tower of London was added late in development or something.


tho honestly I feel like a lot of the "so hard" talk is just people inexperienced with a game that penalizes sloppy play...

I'm actually finding this a lot more difficult than DS and Bloodborne... I just need to get used to the mechanics of this game since it's obviously different from Soulsborne.

And yeah, I'm getting so much Onimusha nostalgia... I wonder if Capcom would reboot/revive the series?

That moment where you're sweating bullets and your controller is drenched in sweat cuz you finally no damaged the boss after getting fed up and getting "In The Zone"....only to die on the next mission to a bandit because you're too damn jittery.-.

I'd love if they rebooted the franchise, same with Rival Schools.

That second boss is kicking my ass. It'd help if the run to her wasn't so annoying. Sometimes I can dodge enemies and the bats, sometimes I can't. Though that doesn't matter when I die in like one combo from her regardless of if I have full HP or not. She feels like an endgame Dark Souls/Bloodborne boss except she's the second boss.

There's a really obvious third shrine in the second mission lol. Also beat the boss of mission 2. Just have to wait for her to do a three-string combo and then attack twice. And always be in low stance when she starts flying so you can dodge spam her attacks.

She actually wasn't too bad, managed to beat her on my fourth try. My biggest problem that I have to control in this game and including Soulsborne is that I get extremely greedy at times. Learning her moveset and timing her paralyzing projectile attack was key. And yeah the third shrine at the bottom of the caverns definitely helped and cut time significantly...

Yeah, i was super close to doing a flawless no damage run on her only to get greedy right at the end where she had two or three hits left and she got me but I still killed her xD

I really don't understand the upgrading equipment and upgrading special skills thing. They all seem random and skills vanish ect, what the heck?

I just reached the second region and did the first mission there. The boss was pretty pathetic. It took almost 7 minutes but that was just because he's a damage sponge.

I'm waiting for a sale on it, though I have watched a few streamers playing it and it does definitely look like something I'm going to enjoy. I just have too many other things on the go right now.

Unless there's like some ultra difficult mode, I doubt I'll get it any time soon. I don't wanna spend $60 I can run through easily, though it does look fun

Hmmm... A new game plus where first main mission recommended level is 180 and two missions where you have to fight four of the game's toughest bosses in a 2v1 battle. Challenge accepted.
