    As someone who can't read japanese

    are there different signs in red? Because not every red attack is a thrust I could counter, and I mostly have to go by the animation

    Yeah that is REALLY throwing me for a fucking loop

    Trying to fight a spearboy right now and every thrust is a gift, but occasionally he mixes in a sweep and just takes like half my health bar out because I just hit O instead of jumping

    I died to the Ogre about 6 or 7 times, then kicked his ass hard without even taking a single hit.

    ...

    Then I realized that I missed an entire area, and a key item that uses what is hinted as being the Ogre’s weakness. Oops.

    I wish the ash had a bit more speed to it. It feels pretty useless in a skirmish against more than one person, which is when I’d have thought it’d be most useful.

    No, it's just the word "danger", you have to read the animation to find out what to do

    What I really like about this game is that it feels like old-school samurai movies, slow approach of two enemies and lightning fast and short encounters that leaves one dead and one standing

    Friend bought this on disc but is out of town till Wednesday so he told me to take it off his porch and play.

    Just did the tutorial area so far tonight and I am still deciding how I feel.

    I am not sure if I am loving how defense focused it feels, attacks have minimal to no stagger.

    Parry is low risk because you can seem to hold a parry into block, so parry for huge benefits erring on the early side into block, with dodge/jump for attacks you can’t parry or if your posture gets low. Only attack if the enemy is clearly turtling or in a stagger animation from a parry/dodge.

    Maybe things get mixed up as the game goes on but it feels a bit passive.

    im pretty sure things start getting mixed up like 7 seconds beyond where you stopped to post

    the game throws a lot of stuff at you that you cannot comfortably block/mashparry against

    so far very much enjoying the game... feels very fresh to me, fun fights... cool new things they haven't done in souls games

    Lady Butterfly is gonna be the death of me. Especially that I’ve gotten her close on the second stage a couple of times, and then do something dumb and die.

    Snake was great. Stabbing it in the eye and seeing how much blood was all over the Wolf was even better.

    And after getting to Gyoubu, I'm sad I didn't purchase the grappling attack yet.

    I've been having that feeling too although I probably haven't played quite as long

    I don't hate it, but it's adding to the disorientation I'm feeling about how big the game seems to be

    To be fair I am jumping back and forth between two zones a lot.

    But I’ve fought a ton of mini bosses but nothing that feels like an actual boss yet.

    OK NO NEVERMIND THERES ONE

    I KNOW tenzen is optional.

    I’ve cleared our everything around him and have continued on the path.

    But something in me just can’t let it go. I keep coming back to him and keep getting my ass kicked through my spine. Why am I doing this to myself?

    I will mirror the sentiment and say "Fuck you, Lady Butterfly."
    I did realize that shurikens can knock her out of her midair attacks and keep the Posture meter building up, and can consistently get to phase 2 with about 8 or 9 shurikens left before having to kill her illusions for more spirit emblems, it's now just a matter of dealing with her new combo finisher and the butterflies themselves.

    I fought

    Lady Butterfly

    for 3 hours

    3 BLOODY HOURS

    My controller died, so I took a break and went for a walk

    then came back and beat her on the first try.

    This somehow makes me more angry.

    This has always been pretty par for the course for me in these games. I spend a long time learning a boss's movements, then take a break to let it all sink in and Boom, dead boss next time I try.

    Though I found out Tenzen is weak to exactly the same thing as the ogre. That fight wasn't pretty, but I'm alive and he ain't so who cares.

    I managed to beat him by getting his awareness to yellow while he was still chained up, then going and hiding somewhere until he lost track of me, then doing a sneak attack and getting rid of one of his pips.

    I feel like it's finally starting to click a little

    At least how to play evasively and use spacing

    I think I should learn to parry the big boys better though. Because I won by wittling down the ogres health not it's posture

    Yeah, X/square is use item in Dark Souls and I also keep trying to do that.

    It's interesting how this game is simultaneously very similar to and very different from Dark Souls.
