This is UNBELIEVABLY difficult :lol: Holy strawberry floating gooseberry fool. Much worse than even the original Xbox Ninja Gaiden. They need to tone it down for the final game.

I managed to kill the boss at the end of the first mission with some difficulty. I tried the next mission and even the standard enemies are way overpowered and have a tendency to gang up on you so I gave up. This seems decent enough but it's just not for me, I found it way too frustrating.

It's much, much worse. Also, NG was more difficult than NG2. I actually completed NG2, but couldn't get past Alma in 1. :lol:

I gave up NG2 when you had to do all that running on water while fighting and avoiding missiles and also avoiding drowning. Bullshit. Think ill swerve this one so

It's OK. Certainly need to give it more time to get a better feel for it but I really like the stance mechanic.

Basically you have your light and heavy attacks, but if you press R1 and X, square or triangle you go into a low, middle or high stance. Basically fast, medium, slow. I haven't had time to test if you can combo between them effectively but the idea is there.

I'm also playing it like Souls when it definitely isn't meant to be. The stamina system is brutal. You don't have decreased regen when blocking, you have NO regen. So DROP YOUR GODDAMN SHIELD, y'know what I mean? And running out isn't a case of "take a step back for a second". Here you go into a hard winded animation which will probably get you murdered dead against any enemies that aren't brain-dead jobbers.

My gooseberry fool is getting consistently pushed in.

Tl;Dr, it has stuff. Need more time in the lab.

Pretty awful and the control schemes a mess. Graphics are substandard too, although it is an alpha demo. Not sure anyone will enjoy this tbh.

PS4's first 720p game?

We're there any 480p games on PS3?

Interesting option - i guess with the neo it is something that may come as standard.

I've tried giving this a go but I can't seem to find my sword?! :?

I go to loot the first body but don't get anything from it. Baffling.

Not sure I've got the time or patience for this game but I'd like to give it a go before the demo expires.

The sword is in your inventory (from the get go I believe) but you must to go into the menu and equip it.

New beta remains hard as nails when fighting the red corpses, but is slightly easier on regular mobs, but *totally unfair* at one point :lol:

Has a proper tutorial this time around. Really does the trick in terms of teaching you the basics, but doesn't hang around too long. You can give it a miss and still pick up all the info as you play game proper, though.

Any game which makes me look good when all I'm doing is mashing buttons is A-OK by me :P
