Gamersyde meets Genshiro Ashina

Gamersyde meets Genshiro Ashina

Because agni_rzm asked nicely, here's how we handled Genshiro Ashina in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Now what you don't get to see is the number of tries that were necessary to finally claim victory. Oddly enough though, he was much less of a pain than Seven Ashina Spears, who almost drove us (well me actually) nuts. Enjoy the 4K ass-kicking-without-candy-but--still-two-resurrections lesson!

Genishiro has a lot of openings, if you carefully observe. At first I found it odd, then after that thing happens, I understood why From Software made him be like that. So you can do that without getting hit much or at all.

seeing the openings is one thing but being able to exploit them is another thing entirely. he is just too fast. I could see all the openings to attack the guardian ape for example but that stubborn thing just doesn't give up

Yes, but knowing the openings is half the fight, since then you know what to do, the other half is just execution. That's why that claw enemy at the Fort entrance gave me so much trouble, I couldn't see any openings for a long time. Once you get used to the speed of the combat and some enemies' "turbo" attack speed, then it becomes easy/easier to exploit them.

    nostradamus lmao *mild shock* Ancel was a piece of shit all along. suprised_picachu.jpg (20 Hours ago)

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (21 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (21 Hours ago)
  • toelessfoot
    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (1 Day ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (2 Days ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (2 Days ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (2 Days ago)
