Well after an hour and still not beating the Butterfly gimmer and only getting to her second phase twice, I pretty much rage quit. I tried wandering around the castle, found another mini boss general but got half way through him then twonked. I like the bad guys on the roof though.

As I'm away on work and easter for the next week or so, going to spend my remaining time on more chill games.

Now I may be an idiot, but there's one thing I am not sir, and that sir, is an idiot

@Rudy_Manchego Keep at it - get chasing slice and use it a lot if you are not. It's a great way to interrupt her attacks and then close distance quickly to cause damage. Once you've done a bit of damage her posture doesn't regen so quickly. Chasing slice is awesome generally.

@Rudy_Manchego And are you talking about the guy at the top of the stairs? I used the roofs next to him to take out the gunmen one at a time via deathblows (jumping off the roof, deathblow, grappling hook away, let them stop looking at me and repeat). With the gunmen dead you can drop down behind the general and get 1 death blow in, then you just need to deal with his second phase which can take a bit of doing but I learnt a lot about deflecting in that battle which helped with lady butterfly.

@kyleforrester87 Yeah - the issue is, last night I was done with the game, today I am thinking of taking your advice. The problem is, at this pace I will not do anything else with my life for months. Oh to be good at games.

FOr the blokey at the stairs, I stealthed the gunmen and the first health bar, it just takes some time to do and I just got frustrated that it would take a few minutes to get to the boss fight to then learn the moves. Sure I can manage it though.

I will have one more go tonight on Lady Brian Butterbur before I put it on the backburned for a week.

@Rudy_Manchego It probably took me 10 times to beat the guy on the stairs, but I got very quick at the "prep" required taking out the 4 gun men. Drop in, death blow, swing out, lay low, repeat.

I do get what you're saying, the game has its hooks in me though so I'm happy with the prospect of not playing much else. It's not often there's a game in your disc tray that you're happy to ignore other new releases for.

These bosses are not even close to impossible though, they can be a bit tricky and even if you just try once or twice a day you'll get them in the end!!

@kyleforrester87 I am near the end if I choose that ending. Only two mini bosses quite close to each other, and then the end decison. Probably gonna choose the 'good' ending this time round so that I can see the other area/s.

@Rudy_Manchego Whenever I'm struggling on a boss, I go off and explorer for a bit then go back and have a few goes at the boss. You are at the stage in the game where you can go off and explore in different directions.

@kyleforrester87 @JohnnyShoulder Well in typical hissy fit fashion I had a good quick 15 minute go on Lady Butterly before the kids got home and just spammed L1 and took her down first go. So I will be playing more. I was playing her completely wrong clearly. Actually I almost fluffed it as i took her down and didn’t see the prompt that I had to stab her again to finish her off and had to do another round with her!!!

In terms of time, my main complaint as a player that isn’t great is that this game does demand time and I manage only a few hours a week and sometimes hitting your head on a brick wall in your evenings gaming is a pain. This is my issue though. Not the games fault.

Oh really? Lol

I just remembered the Shinobi hunter at the start and how much trouble it gave me. I’d smoke his ass so hard now.

It's annoying when you almost kill a boss then can't even get past the 1st phase the next few goes

Yes, just beat one of the 'ending' bosses. That was one tough fight as to be expected. His hits do massive posture damage, even when successfully deflected. So the Ichimonji skill is really handy as it recovers posture damage as dealing it (as well normal damage). It has a slow build up so you can only do it after he pulls of certain moves. He also throws this annoying ball at you which if you get caught in the mist prevents you from healing.

Anyway glad I can finally move on to the next area, defo on the home straight now.

I decided to leave the "good" ending until my second play through and now I'm stuck on the third stage of the final "bad" ending fight and have been all weekend. Which is nice.

@LN78 I'm hoping I've done most of the stuff for the two alternative 'good' endings. Just need to finish the game now! I'm defo locked out of the default ending, but I've backed up my save for the 'bad' ending to a usb stick for later.

@JohnnyShoulder Such a tremendous game. I'm not going to get chance to have another serious session on it for a few weeks now by which time my fighting edge will have no doubt dulled! I was really hoping to see credits today but the last fight is a real beast as you would expect- I managed to get within a whisker just now but excitement got the better of me and I botched a dodge.

If you haven't guessed already, i love this game. The feeling you get when you totally nail the combat, deflecting, countering and dodging attacks on a few enemies is so satisfying.
If you have a spare half hour, i reccomend the below, two guys and a gal have a non-spoiler chat about the game.
