You're taking your time? I'm about to fight the boss from the tutorial for the first time. I know I'm playing out of  order for sure though.  I got the poison dagger though.

Those are what saved the game for me.

 

Yea I take that back. I just needed a break. I rarely play through new games this relatively quickly for my standards and the difficulty was wearing me down.

 

Palace area is splendid and I dig the gimmick boss.

 I put over a 100 hours into division 2 since it released.  I probably would have had Sekiro beat before anyone else on this board if I had dedicated my division 2 time to Sekiro instead.

Sekiro is the shortest Soulsborne game. And that is based off of NG+ length. The Soulsborne games take longer to complete in NG+ than Sekiro. 

 

This is not me saying anything about your skill or anything like that. I just wanted to say it was the shortest.

Howlongtobeat backs you up on that. Average completion time for the main story is 26 hours. All the Dark Souls and Bloodborne are in excess of 30 hours.

The 400-year-old shinobi manuals that definitely inspired Sekiro’s prosthetic tools (Rock, Paper, Shotgun)

Ninjas love scrolls. It’s just a ninja thing, don’t ask. They refuse to read anything that hasn’t first been rolled up into scroll form so they can unroll it again and dramatically ponder its contents. Luckily for us, they left a few of these scrolls behind. In the interest of important ninja science, I took a look at some translations of these aged texts, such as the Bansenshukai, the Koka Ryu Ninjutsu Densho, the Shinobi Hiden, and the Yoshimori Hyakushu to find out whether any of Sekiro’s tools, items, and techniques have much historical precedent. And they definitely do. Allow me to impart this secret knowledge upon you.

too late for the update!  I finished my NG+ for shura ending this past weekend.

 

@Biggie how are you doing with your first souls-type game?

Hit a wall. I’ll go back once I clear my head. But it’s such a difficult game.

Where did you get stuck? You definitely have to be in the right headspace for a game like this.

Yeah, that update is pointless for me. No plans on playing this game again unless there is DLC. Like, I sometimes go back to DS, but I don't really see myself going back to Sekiro. I also think that this games is 8/10 now that I have had some time away from it. If I wanted to be a dick I'd say this game was a 79/100. It isn't a perfect 8/10 for me, but 7/10 is too low for this game.

The drunkard boss. I could prolly beat him if I had the time and some patience. Sekiro isn’t something you can just boot up for a quick go around.  lol

5:30 AM - Wake up, go for a quick jog

6:00 AM - Put the dogs out, eat breakfast, take a quick shower

6:45 AM - Boot up Sekiro and kill Owl

6:55 AM - Upload to YouTube

7:05 AM - Brag about it on D1P and go to work

 

 

:cheers:

 

 

Edit: I probably would have done better on the second half if I were fueled up with some coffee.

Very nice.  I had such a difficult time with this boss.  I ended up just using mortal blade for every hit since it causes dmg even if he blocks.

Honestly, I think playing Katana Zero and purposefully beating it without the time slow mechanic improved my reflexes quite a bit. Genichero took me about 20 tries before I beat him. I took down Owl after two runs (the video was my 2nd run).

You can do it, I believe in you.  This guy is laughably easy once you figure out the patterns.  Kinda like old school megaman or any metroidvania boss fight.

Is that the big drunk guy that spits out poison? He's pretty easy especially if you use the NPC in the area to help you fight him.

Welp, I've defeated every optional boss and explored every nook and cranny that I know off (pre-NG+, post-Owl). Guess it's time to trek to Fountainhead Palace and finish up my first run.
