This is the best looking game I've played on my PS5.

Toward the end of my session last night I somehow completely forgot how to fight :slol: :fp: I was failing at dodging and parrying and all sorts. I ended up dying twice even. First time I've died in seemingly ages. What's the best tactic to use against the big 2H guys? The ones which do big roundhouse attacks with massive axes, etc? They glint red and so I *tried* to dodge them, but the attack then spun back around towards me and caught me over and over. I even had lots of health.

Couple of samurai film recommendations: "Yojimbo" and "Sanjuro". I previously avoided Kurosawa films as I feared they'd be a bit too high concept/arty for me, but these two films I feel anyone could get into. They're available to stream via the BFI channel on Prime. (Which you can probably get a promo sub to right now.)

I'm a beast in combat now. "Ghost" at the start of an encounter, then L1+R1 a couple of times with a final kunai or circle/triangle to finish off any stragglers (if they aren't already fleeing in fear).

Just finished a 5 hours + session on this. Rescued the uncle. Absolutely dreading him finding out how I've been fighting :dread: Loving the game. I just wish I was better at dodging the red attacks :fp:

Ah ffs :fp: See, I suspected the game would do that (not track which style you've played as), which is why I chose to play naturally/not make the game unnecessarily harder for myself; I fought as a samurai "should" when mostly out in the open, and stealthed as much as I could when boxed in compounds, etc.

I wish the saki guy was in it more. He's the only one with a personality.

Name doesn't ring any bells. Is he optional, or main story related? Would hate to miss someone else worth meeting.

He wasn't nearly as harsh on me. He wasn't happy, but I was expecting worse. The strawberry float did you do? :lol:

Not that I am aware. The uncle just said something along the lines of... er, I disprove of your methods, but they were desperate measures and I understand. But it's now time to come back to the ways of the samurai.

Nope, not even close to the new joint he took over. I'm back down south liberating the farmsteads and mopping up other side missions.
