I was around the 35 hours mark when I rescued him :slol: spent all that time upgrading skills and equipment :datass:


I kept thinking how funny it was about all the various things delaying me in making the rescue. Metal claw thing? But I found a guy selling white clothes dye! WHITE! I need to go collecting flowers!


Oh! The grappling hook animation is probably the worst thing about the game. Both in terms of Jin's animation when using it (namely when throwing it in the middle of a jump) and the impossibility of the physics. They should have just bit the bullet and made it more gamey somehow. (Like creating a device which somehow caused it to launch explosively.)

Not far off reaching the third area now. I should hopefully be able to get the platinum before Hitman 3 releases :msgreen:

I’m trying to get to a couple of story missions down south but I keep getting distracted by all sorts of other stuff - I’m even getting distracted by a fresh distraction whilst on the way to a distraction. My Shimura’s gonna be like ‘where the bloody hell have you been?’ but hopefully I’ll have armour like a walking tank and the sharpest sword in the east.

The south has been liberated! Done all the side missions and found all the discoverables I've uncovered.

Will start wrecking gooseberry fool in the north from tomorrow. I may even dip in and out of Kurosawa mode.

This easily would have made my GotY list had I played it last year. Kudos to Sucker Punch on making so enjoyable a game.

I was channelling Michael from Deer Hunter :lol: There was higher ground above me but I didn't want to risk them moving away. So after taking that shot I move to higher ground and they were still there, but the shot from there had too much height. So I dropped a few feet below to an outcrop so that I could take a shot where I was level with them. And then they moved away :x There were a whole bunch of 'em too. Ngh.

Spent about 5 hours with this today in a heartbeat, what a game. Finally made it to a story mission, about an old mate and his straw hat crew, and it was just class.
I’m usually a sneaky sneaky stab in the dicksy sort of guy when it comes to liberating bases in games but when the standoff prompt appears...well it’s really tempting isn’t it?! Getting into character, man. The one that’s ‘challenge remaining enemies’ or whatever once I’ve stealthed the majority, I’m straight in. “STAND AND FIGHT!”

Remember, no matter what sort of samurai you are, be it honourable, or wily, ALL samurai right swipe the touch pad at the end of each battle.

But do you right swipe while sitting or standing?

... :o What happens then?!

It doesn’t help - whether it was deliberate design or not - that the tanto (?) can get max upgraded really easily, so you can go full Tenchu quite quickly. The speed of the stealth stab is wild now.

Try it. It's really badass..

Yeah, max short sword backstab is just *shuck* *dead*. I also think there's a stealth chain ability in one of the trees to makes things *even* stealthier for when you're backstabbing mongols within close proximity of one another.

Anyone seen those mongols bashing on a drum and singing? Felt pretty bad killing that one.

Yeah, done that in various places and situations. (Bowing at a monument on the beach caused crabs to appear and skitter about; fish jumping at a lake; and Jin utters condolences to humans and beasts alike if he bows where they fell.)

Question for mission with the old lady at Jin's place: is it possible to not use the hallucination darts? I did and got a flashback cutscene and it feels like the biggest line I've crossed yet.

Didn't know about bowing. Going to have to go back to areas I've already cleared out just to find some bowing spots now.

Couple of the side mission stories went places today :o (The ones with his nanny and Lady Masako and the thief.)
