Haha been a user for long and don't recall you guys being so in love for any other game (except probably racing games)

Can't blame you. Sekiro is a jewel, and it's hard as hell, so one feels in the need to share the glory when defeating those svckers. It also can look damn good.

Well, there is not much else to cover and for once we have time to play a game we only received on release day. :)

You Sekiro fanboy. :P

Since you have the time, do you plan on finishing any other games after Sekiro? Or do you plan on doing a NG+ playthrough of Sekiro?

I would definitely recommend Devil May Cry 5, it's an excellent game and the combat system is much better than Sekiro, allowing for a lot of creativity and flexibility even with just one character.

Another one, although an oldie, is Dragon's Dogma, if you never finished it. Which has a great combat system, lore and enemy design. It's a mix of Shadow of the Colossus with Dark Souls in a way, which is just amazing.

Sekiro and the Division 2 are my addictions of the moment.

I don't care what other people say and I'm not even a big DMC fan, but Devil May Cry 5 is one of the best games of this generation.

Absolutely. There's a video of just the training section with Dante that shows just a hint of the amazing combat in DMC5, it allows for a lot of creativity and fluidity to make the mount the combos the way you want each time.

Additionally, there's a great talk by the DMC5 developers at GDC which thy talk like in DMC4 you had a very short window for sucess, so if you pressed too soon it failed, too late it failed as well. While on DMC5 there's a wider window, so you get a Weak, Medium and then Success and that they made it this way to teach the players and encourage them to get better with the game.

DMC5: How Max-Act Works - Let players understand they’re improving (It's the 6th image):

Now that I think about it, that could be an excellent compromise for Sekiro, like if your deflect timing is too soon or too late, you receive some damage, but not the full damage - inside a certain window, like 0.5-1 second sooner or later.

If you hit the medium spot, you receive less damage and if you hit the right spot you receive no damage at all. This way it wouldn't be as punishing, while still encouraging you to get better to both have an easier time as well as to make fights go faster. I don't believe this would compromise the vision, since it would still require skill and fast reflexes, but it's just an idea.

Sdarts you definitely has the soul of a writer. What I loved most about Devil May Cry V was Nico. She is such a awesome new character! Witty, sarcastic, funny, and borderline insane. Amazing voice acting, Nico stole every scene she was in!

    nostradamus lmao *mild shock* Ancel was a piece of shit all along. suprised_picachu.jpg (19 Hours ago)
  • toelessfoot
    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (20 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 (20 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 (23 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (1 Day 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 (1 Day ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (1 Day ago)
