@Jimmer-jammer so the bosses were the highlight of course, with Shibata being my favourite (funny how that works out as I was cursing him for 8 hours straight). As far as mob enemies go, again my faves are probably the ones that I struggled with initially. The Raven Tengu, the wheelmonk and the Ippon-Datara always make my day when I stumble across their paths.

After seriously struggling all the way through Nioh 1, I somehow got lucky with my build in Nioh 2 and sailed through to the platinum. Loved every minute. I picked the tonfa, for no other reason than as a nod to the main character of Suikoden II, and it turned out to be a great choice. You just saunter up to the enemy, spin the tonfas like a boss, and stunlock them into next week until they fall on their arse.

@Th3solution - just do what I did. It's essentially a cheese weapon, but it doesn't feel like a cheese because a) you still need to invest in the right stats and b) you look absolutely awesome while you do it

PS I'm also a bit of a parry refusenik

Good job, Parappa. You can go on to the next stage now.

@colonelkilgore Sorry, got tied up at work… Wheelmonks are such a bizarre enemy 😂 Funny and terrifying at the same time.

@Jimmer-jammer yeah I actually spent the first few mission in which they appeared avoiding them as I found their movement so unpredictable.

@Gremio108 Good to know. Sounds like my kind of build!

Anyone gonna try the 8 hour demo for Enotria the last song?

@CaptD I don’t really do demos but am interested to see what people make of it.

Off the topic of Enotria but still set in the genre, I watched a video of that Another Crab Treasure (or whatever it’s called) last night… and I’m actually quite taken by what I saw. Like Spongebob meets Dark Souls… but somehow it works.

@colonelkilgore Plus the easy mode is quite unique in Another Crab's Treasure, you get a big gun which one hit kills everything!

@Black_Swordsman awesome, I’ve added it too so fingers crossed it’ll get a nice little reduction over the coming months.

@Black_Swordsman I will impressed if you manage to get a Berzerk build from this game!

@BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN I liked what I saw from the State of Play, so will keep an eye on this. It will have join the back of rather long que of games, even if you only include the ones in the same genre.

@BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN Something actually feels off about this game to me. It seems to lack polish right now. Maybe it will get better by release, but graphics are PS4 level and the sound effects are really weird to me. The strikes sound… squishy? It robs the combat of any impact.

I also am already getting rather tired of the samurai themed games. They’re a dime a dozen now (not sure that saying makes sense outside the U.S.)

@BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN I’m certainly intrigued! Saw some interesting things there, such as learning skills through environmental observation. Could be good!
