Did any of y'all get this game? It was released March 22.

I am buying it today. I'm a little worried about progress, as my summoned pals usually carried me through Dark Souls and Bloodborne...

    I'm playing it!

    It is HARD but the changes to the formula are all very interesting. It's souls in tone and challenge but with much more story focus.

    I really like that this game has direct tutorialization because the combat is very different.

    Adding a jump button and grappling hook opens up the exploration in a ton of really fun ways.

    I'm playing this game and dying a lot.

    Definitely a From game.

    This game, like every other From game, makes me want to throw my controller through my TV, but for once I think I'm actually enjoying it.

    I really like it, but it is significantly harder than any Souls game. It's more comparable to a character action game on one of the silly higher difficulty options. Most minibosses are as difficult as challenging Souls bosses IMO.

    I was trying to decide between this and the Division 2 so I got The Division 2 for that sweet sweet loot BUT

    I remembered I got a $25 voucher for whatever thru work so I think I'm gonna put that towards Sekiro: Shadows Die Probably A Whole Lot More Than Twice. Ain't got up ins a From game in a skinny minute.

    I don't have time to play either but I will have them. And that's what matters.

    Wonder if anybody is doing another "no dodging, no equipping, no upgrading, no healing" run.

    Quick tip!
    The running arms-wide grab is actually a sweep, you need to jump over it and kick him in the face. Also, when you see the red mark, just dodge backwards. If it's the fast grab, you avoid it; if it's the sweep, you have time to jump it after dodging.

    It seems like the key to reacting to thrusts/grabs/sweeps is to find the magic range/position/dodge direction that beats all of them. If you're standing still right in an enemy's face, dodging left and right, you'll be wrecked by tracking if you don't do it perfectly.

    I assume there are already no item speedruns where the controller is manipulated with the runners buttcheeks

    Does it count if I keep dying to the same enemy before I get a chance to dodge or heal and never get to equip or upgrade anything

    Only if you finish the game that way!

    I very nearly beat the Ogre without having gone to the Estate and
    found any other Shinobi tools. I didn't realize you had to go to the kind faced Buddha to use the bell, so I just kept trying to kill him.

    I love having a jump button and grappling hook! And it does feel like an homage to Tenchu, in a really good way. Deflecting feels so great.

    I'm not sure I entirely understand the step dodge, should it "trigger" when I press B or is it direction+B? The game emphasized it before this fight, and I can't dodge most of the attacks for some reason. Maybe it's not great against combos?

    I don't think Dragonrot cares if you keep using the revive, it just seems to be based on death.

    So you may have actually sped up the process by not reviving.

    It's good for some attacks, but not others. Sweep moves or ones with good horizontal tracking will beat it out. Hold a direction when you press B and the step dodge will come out, or directionless to dodge backward.

    You should be deflecting combos, because each deflected attack damages their posture considerably, and they're basically killing themselves.

    Well after beating my face against the purple ninja dude for awhile, I ran in and grabbed the item he was guarding and died.

    That's sort of a win

    EDIT: Unrelated to the previous thing, welp found Sekiro's "dragon on a bridge"

    From a certain point of view nothing is 'hard'

    No the game is hard.

    But, remember the first time you played a souls game? It took a long time to adapt to how to play that game.

    So now you have 10 or so years of Souls games deep in your muscle memory. You try to play this game like a souls game, you’re gonna have a bad time. Worse yet, you have to unlearn al those years of souls games.

    But once you’ve done that, things gets much easier.

    Holy cow this game is big

    It's fun to be at the early days of the release, when you can get to a Land Beyond Guides, where nobody's mapped out the secrets or anything. If I stumble into a hidden passage, or find a hidden boss, it feels extra special. Even if/when said hidden boss crushes my ass into a fine paste.

    Also, I think Sekiro might be a bad dude! A lot of the dudes I'm killing seem to be just... Dudes.

    One boss spoiler:
    Like, there was this dude in armor who just wanted Sekiro and/or Lord to help his sick kid. And Sekiro said no, and the dude attacked me to try and make me. And as I kicked his ass off a bridge, he died screaming his son's name. It was maybe the worst I've ever felt about beating a boss!
