Damn, 2 and a have years. What about buying it used so that Activision doesn't profit?

I was going to borrow my mates version but with the reviews I just can't wait. I look at it like this, this is a game I want Activision to publish so if it is a success we will get more SP games as well as the money being split with FromSoft which is a decent way to balance the Activsion evil. I'm still boycotting EA, Acti and Uni but if they publish SP games that turn out real well then it's something that should be supported... or perhaps I am just trying to justify it. Either way, I'm playing Sekerio at midnight.

Well the way I see it, you only live once (except in Sekiro, ironically), so you might as well play the games you want to play, even if it means giving money to a company you don't like.

Liking it so far? I play through these games at a snails pace. I played for about an hour and 15 minutes so far tonight and just reached the area after that opening tutorial (probably 15 minutes into the game for most folks). So far this game is absolutely in the vein of a Soulslike, but it is much more slimmed down. Personally, some of my favorite aspects of the Souls games are the progression systems and the variety of weapons and magicks, but It's too early for me to tell if this will stack up.

I can say that for me the opening area was pretty awesome, although performance-wise I'm hoping to see some things patched up. Draw distances are extremely low for foliage, and so there was a lot of pop-in with the environmental details that were really not more than a few seconds away from my character. Also, FromSoft seems to like putting this filter over the game that makes everything slightly blurred (hard to explain, but I noticed it in other Souls games as well).

TLDR; Sekiro is awesome so far. Wish I could stay up later and play more, but kids. Glad I used paid time off for tomorrow. Looking forward to this weekend. Praise the sun.

Not interested, but I can clearly see this becoming one of the shining gems of this year. Another solid one From ... Software (Ah)

Lucky my cousin got the game, will be playing it in a couple minutes, almost done downloading.

 

Edit: Currently playing, I'm prepared for numerous 死.

How did you even download it? On Playstation Store there is no buy option  



Yeah I'm hyped. Just let me finish Hollow Knight first.



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true. 

60fps cap and no native DS4 support. I guess From Software will never learn.

But I guess I will have to try it out.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I'm playing on steam.

Steam: Lee Roid

I've played about an hour so far. Will update with my thoughts as I go.



No hype from me, not my type of game. I'd get so frustrated that i'd want to throw my controller.



Somewhat optimisitc - from everything I've seen so far I actually don't think I'd like it anywhere near as much as Souls, but I need hands on experience for any further judgement. Weekend, here I come...

Loving it, first in line for game of the year contender and it's only competition  is Re2 remake. This looks to be a lot stronger I'd it continues on the path it is on, spent near 5 hours without last night and If I wasn't getting old I'd have went all night. On pro on a 4k HDR TV the game looks beautiful and the best if the year so far, there is mild detail pop in like you mentioned but it is only detail and very rare, mostly shadows and grass. It does get blurry in the far distance, it took me ages to spot that there was a huge mount fugi like mountain hanging back there but I thinknthisbis by design. 

Looks fantastic. Sounds fantastic. Runs fantastic. Plays absolutely fantastically.
