Zweihander sounds like a bit of a cheat weapon if anything. And as anyone who has followed my Soulsborne journeys so far knows - I hate cheat weapons!

its balanced - very slow so you cant do the hit and run. in fact i think i had a lot of trouble with Manus and Artorias because every swing leaves you open if you time it incorrectly.

The trade-offs are it's in the ultragreatsword category so it's slow against fast moving enemies like dogs, and it's a pain in the arse to use in narrow spaces.

Ventured a bit too deep into the Catacombs this evening and got in over my head - before I knew it I was surrounded by skellies and there was a Titanite Demon and I died. Booo

Yeah I get the pro's and con's! I was mainly just poking fun at how some people tried to undermine my Bloodborne skills last year by saying I was cheating with the transformed Hunters Axe ;)

Took a deep breath and forged ahead, killing the Titanite Demon and avoiding all the skellies by basically pegging it as fast as I could, worked a treat :lol:

Then promptly mistimed a jump and fell down onto a platform that had a soul on it, so I figured might as well keep descending and see where it takes me... only ended up in Pinwheel's gaffe and beat him without breaking a sweat - if only all the bosses were that easy :lol:

Going to try my hand at New Londo Ruins and become the Ghostbusters I always knew I could be.

Also, tried Zweihander but it wasn't for me - drained my stamina so quickly and felt too exposed when wielding it.

I’ve made a Mario level based loosely on Sen’s Fortress in Mario Maker 2 if anyone is interested in playing it, the code is X2V-4F6-PPF

I would really appreciate any feedback.

killed the monkeys, heavy armour dude, and a re-skin of Vega in Senpou Temple. really enjoying Sekiro now, its like Bloodborne - a fresh take on the Souls formula.

I have a spare key for Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin. Would anyone who doesn't have it be willing to take it off my hands and stream it to the GRcade channel?

You must stream it to the GRcadeuk channel though, if no one wants to I'll add it to my Giveaway list :D

It's a steam Key.
