Damn, making me feel small. I spent hours on that, we'll a good chunk of it being passive attempts but still, many deaths. Many tries.

I honestly felt like it was going to take me forever. I was getting good enough to get to the second form relatively unscathed, but just couldn't get any kind of groove for the second form.  Then it just clicked and I mikiri'd the shit out of him every time he did his jump thrust (which was quite often) and otherwise kept enough distance between us to make the lightning less of an issue.

9.5/10 from PlayGround.ru

""The final line of the text on the gates of hell from Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy “Leave hope, everyone entering here” very succinctly describes what awaits the brave man who decided to conquer Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. This is a merciless game that craves blood and causes physical pain. You will suffer, you will curse yourself, the game and its developers, but you will not be able to stop playing it, it will become an obsession. But how much it takes, it pays as much for the next victory. If you are ready to commit self-torture, you will not once experience a feeling close to catharsis or nirvana once again plunging the blade into the defeated boss, the fight with which at first seemed impossible.""

I heard this game sold over 2 million copies already...



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 3 this generation: 
Bloodborne, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III

Good to hear it's selling well. I've actually been playing more of The Surge lately as Sekiro got me interested in the genre again. I'm more than halfway through the game and it's nowhere near as good as Sekiro, but I'm finding it fun. I've heard that it's sold rather poorly, but hopefully the devs made out at least a little bit considering they managed to get a deal with Sony for April PSN.

A lot of passive fights while watching YouTube and Netflix, hard to say how much of my time it took and I never said The demon of hatred was hard, he is easy it is the terrain that is the part of the fight that caused me frustration. Also, it is the Owl in Hirrata and not the first Owl. Let me know how it goes with him, give us an update, where ya at now?

Well I spoke too soon about the Guardian Ape boss. His 2nd form took me a while. I went back and scoured all the areas for missables, plus beat the Snakes Eyes bosses, and explored new areas. I think I got to play 10 hours in the past week. Still farming enough gold and XP to move my Shinobi skill tree to the max, and buy extra upgrades/seeds. 

Where the heck is the 2nd half of the mask, because the game's difficulty is ramping up and I could really use that attack boost!

Edit: Oh, and fuck my job for making me do so much overtime. Looking for another job asap. I want 40 hours a week not 56 damn it!

I wouldn't be maxing out any skill tree's just yet if I were you, unless you've unlocked at least 5 of them or is it 6, I can't remember. Points become difficult to gain as each level increases and the most useful skills are mid way up other tree's, such as the latent skills on the Ashina arts tree.

Gratz on the Guardian Ape. Don't forget, Divine con get to can always help on supernatural enemies to increase damage.

Haha yes! My next task is to kill three of the supernatural mini-bosses, so I'll be using confetti tomorrow like it's New Year's Eve!



Today I beat the double guardian ape, and the corrupted monk. Double Ape was pretty simple, it just took time. Firecrackers were upgraded to the point of dealing a ton of posture damage to the 2nd ape. So I ran around dodging the main one, and used Firecrackers three times to get him vulnerable to a DB.

Corrupted monk was pretty BS. He damages your posture by a ton, and takes almost no damage unless you get him wide open. You pretty much have to whittle his health down by the tiny slivers that he takes when blocking your attacks. His Sweep, and Stab attacks both look identical, and he has way too many ways to fake you out.



Well for the record I beat the surge today. Game was fairly buggy, or something was up, as my PS4 got fatal errors at least three or four times while playing, and the final one happened during the end credits, so I don't think I was awarded the achievement. (Checking right now)

Edit: Oh, how frustrating. Because it bugged out during the end sequence (yeah, I didn't even get to watch the whole ending, so I'm going to have to YT it), I didn't get the trophy, but the game still saved, so I can't even re-beat the final boss (not that I probably would). So if I try loading my file it immediately puts me into NG+. I wonder if this happens to others, as the trophy percentage is really low, but that's probably just because of PSN April.



I'm about to fight the Owl. I think. Does anybody know where to farm Divine Confetti? I need to kill one more shaman for my 7th necklace, and I'd like to fight the Owl at full power.
