Same. What boss are you at?

Goyobi oniwya. First real Boss setup encounter Boss, like Boss with a capital B, boss boss but probably like the fifth of sixth if you're counting the mini bosses along the way. Also on my way up the hiratti estate also simultaneously and going for runs at an optional hidden Big B boss.

Dang you just murdered the name lol, anyways, the funny thing is, the first boss is much easier compared to the mini-bosses, only died twice to him compared to the mini-bosses which kills me more than that, though for me the Chained Ogre is the most annoying, only reason I keep dying is because of the dang cliff, and he helps you by just throwing you there jezuz.

Now I'm fighting Genichiro for our second round.

Not really that into it tbh. I might be a bit tired of Souls kinda games.

Well I'm be taking him off his horsey fiest so cause the Drunkard and the magic cave dweller are so ridiculously hard. I was stuck the longest on the chained Ogre too but mostly because the idol was do close it made me play less conservatively and I didn't have any prosthetic help my first 20 times, he was a cake walk after I realized for was his weakness.

The worst has been that Genral dude surrounded by enemies simply because you have to take out every enemy every try. Did you take him out or skip him? 

Are you talking about the drunkard that spews poison or the one near the Ashina Castle? If it's the latter, then yes I skipped him, as I thought I was going to a secret area through the rooftops, but low and behold, Tengus swarm the dang rooftops and I was actually going the right path.

@John2290

Ah, you mean the one with one fatty among the little guys? Yeah I beat him, it's much easier if you stealth or just cheese the little ones away first then killing the general, I just beat the boss in the Hirata Estate now, took me around 8 tries, its the boss right after the Drunkard, tomorrow I'll come back for Genichiro, gonna sleep now.

This is the best a Ninja game has ever gotten and my GoTY so far, first game on ps4 since GoW that only has very minor surface flaws and no glaring issues that leave a mark on the games quality.
I'm still trying to beat the first true boss encounter and heading back onto other routes inbetween sessions on him. I can't see this being any less than a 10 for me and maybe evenjoin my GotG list.

I'm happy to hear these words.   I'm too busy today, but I will most probably play it tomorrow, and I can't wait !  Is the Game very hard ? ok, it also depends on our personal skills... I'm just curious.

Yep, it's very hard. I can't think of a game that would give you time skills needed for this besides for Hollow knight, guitar hero or Beat saber or just having naturally fast reflexes. 

I love challenging games; KZ2 at Veteran was a blast, also finished all Uncharted games of the collection at Brutal, that was really brutal :D  and Bloodborne, Super Meat Boy, etc etc; so I'm quiet sure I will enjoy Sekiro; are you playing it on a PRO?

Wait, you beat Super mean boy? That is an an accomplishment. Yeah, I'm playing it on PRO, looks fantastic and smooth but with a rare but very notcable single frame stutter than last about half a second. Resolution is great albeit blocky when you look close but still manages great clarity and HDR brings nice punchy colour, it already looks like an oil painting but HDR really pushes thst feel full force. My two first 10's of the year are this and The messenger, be excited dude because you will not be let down regardless of how high your expectations are, it'll meet them.

Yep, I finished Super Meat Boy, it was hard; I needed to put some serious effort ;) and I screamed sometimes :D   I didn't try to finish the bonus levels with the girl though.

 I'm excited about Sekiro!

Did you play Dark Souls and Bloodborne?...if so, how would you compared the level design in Sekiro to those games?...is it as good as DS1?...even better?

I can't see it getting any worse, The first Boss is about 10 hours into the game for me as I branched out In multiple directions. Unless the game takes one hell of a nose dive which I doubt it will, it is already (these ten hours alone) the best game I've played this year and the best Ninja game I've ever played. 

Glad you enjoy it,will also be getting it this week.
