Sekiro: Shadows Annoy Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Annoy Twice

More than twice actually... Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice can sometimes get annoying when someone like Jinsuke Saze has killed you for the 50th time even when he was close to dying himself on several occasions. Then suddenly, you see it, the short window, the opening you've never seen before and it all becomes so easy you're almost ashamed to have failed so many attempts before. The silver lining is that after that, the "flying" ninja of Hirata Estate looks like a joke in comparison...

Haha nice video. Few of the bosses checks you if have learned the game's mechanics. After the boss on top of Ashina castle the game becomes much easier than the rough beginning.
I'm on NG+ now and difficulty wise is rather similar to Souls games.

Congratulations, Drift!

This all reminds me of a quote Albert Eisntein said: "No problem can be solved by the same KIND OF THINKING that created it." That's basically Soulsborne and Sekiro, once you step back, observe and realize what you have to do, the rest is easy.

I'm counting on you finishing Sekiro - which is a masterpiece you clearly love. Afterwards, it would be amazing if you went back to Dark Souls 1 (Remastered) or Bloodborne, they're equally amazing and easier than Sekiro, so you would be able to progress very quickly.

I'm not trying to push you or anything, they are masterpieces as well and very similar to Sekiro and now that you're experienced with From Software's game design, I believe you would have an amazing experience playing them to completion as well. Bloodborne is regarded as the best game of all time by a lot of people for many reasons. Just a suggestion.

About the game


What's up?

    nostradamus lmao *mild shock* Ancel was a piece of shit all along. suprised_picachu.jpg (21 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 (22 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)
