      No worries, I don't mind light spoilers like that. You never really know what you're in for in Nioh until you experience it for yourself anyways.

      And I was already aware of the burst counter mechanic. Sounds awesome, kind of like Mikiri counter in Sekiro.

Once you get past him though the DLC boss fights get more sensible.
        That's the one. Dude was the reason I stopped playing the first game way back in the day. Yeah, old habit of disassembling. Since once you get to divine crafting is bunk if I recall right. Finally got the Divine boots for Warrior of the West. Would rather have Genius Strategist, but a sets a set for right now. Hopefully the Raikiri is good from this mission then it's off to the DLC. Should at least be OK equipment wise for a bit.

        Hey, it's not really a spoiler when it's in the tutorial. About all I'm gonna say about it. He's in for a treat.

        At least he won't be facing unpatched you know who. Still feel accomplished I got him in the before times. That ****er.

          Burst counter is much, much better

            Ha, you actually have the strength of will to walk away from this game? You are a better man than I.

            As for crafting (forging) at this stage, well if using divine shards its still a valid route to take to try to get +1 items for soul matching your gear to higher + levels. Especially while still fighting through DLC #1 where IIRC +1 and above drops are SUPER rare, if they're even possible at all. Also, unfortunately revenants never drop + value gear. They are a great source for divine gear though on Way of the Strong.

            I think the Raikiri should be fine if katana is your weapon of choice. Just keep soul matching it up to increase damage.

              For sure, certainly seems it is. But I just meant in terms of how you use it as a counter move. It has almost the same timing, at least with the "block" version of the burst counter (I understand there's a few different ones).

                It’s actually a very useful, and fun, parry for certain attacks. You’ll have to see which suits you best, but they’re also interchangeable…you’ll see how it works soon enough - in certain battles it’s one of my favorite parts of the combat.

                      Well devs said a fix was already sent to MS for approval so I'm hoping it'll be live "soon".

                        Finished COD Vanguard 8/10.

                          So I had Battlefield 3 for free on Origin. Storywise, should I play other BF before this one ?

                          I started it yesterday and while it seemed it was stand-alone, it started pretty intense from a story point of view (while it looks like it's explained via playable flashbacks).



                          It's like unicorns vomiting chocolate rainbows all over me as I float through a lollipop garden on a magic carpet.

                          Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes. ;-)

                          God, give us grace to accept with serenity the things that cannot be changed, courage to change the things which should be changed, and the wisdom to distinguish the one from the other.

                            Nope, the earlier titles did not have a story driven campaign.

                              Boned a lot of FH5. I think I am done with most of the big events even though I have not unlocked everything or done all stories. I have done the Goliath and Colossus. I think next one would be the dirt racing big event and then I should have finished this game. I may call it finished depending on how far I go by tomorrow.

                              I give it a solid 9.5 jizzshots/10.

                                Currently playing through The Last of Us: Part Two again. Finished it once last year, when it came out. I was thoroughly impressed by it, I consider it one of the best games I've ever played. Not necessarily because of the (top quality) gameplay, but more because of the sheer brutal production quality. Everything's meticulously designed, animation is lightyears ahead of anything else, a true powerhouse for any platform.

                                It has its own peculiar set of issues, but I'm about four or five hours in, and in love all over again. Tense, gripping, gorgeous, adventurous, terrifying. Fewer surprises in terms of story line and pacing mean I can be a bit more observant of some details, things I missed the first time around. And in NG+ mode, I can toy around with the toolbox and sandboxes a bit more.
                                May the Yods be silent

                                  Just finished The Dark Pictures Anthology: House of Ashes. Really enjoyed it.

                                  Thinking I might take a break from PC gaming and play The Last of Us Part II next (which I've had sitting for quite some time).

                                    Completed Quake (Enhanced) in one sitting. Glorious.

                                    First time playing it again since I was a kid.

                                      Played Exo One on game pass. It was kinda neat? It's a bit like Flower in terms of how it plays. Got bored near the end and tbh I never felt like I was going that fast and it didn't help that every objective was a million miles in the distance. Some nice visuals at least.

                                          They are great narrative driven fps games. Metro Exodus is the best one, don't quit the series before playing it.

                                            You think exodus is better than the first game? What makes you say that?

                                              I didn't like the open world aspect of Exodus in the beginning, but it grew on me and I ended up thinking it was a much needed improvement.

                                              Made the game feel even more like STALKER which is a good thing.

                                                        Yeah I stopped playing games for too long The timed gas mask pissed me off. Also I bought the wrong ammo which is kinda my fault. Too many games to play anyway, might revisit this one day

                                                              Playing death's door. 3 hrs into it and so far it's okay but nothing special.

                                                                Finished death's door. Thought it was boring and forgettable. Last boss was a bit of a pain, but other bosses were not that hard. Hated how the last half hour had 3 bosses though. If the doors were not close to the bosses it might have been very annoying as opposed to just a bit tedious.

                                                                Combat was meh, story was awful. Needed a map. Went back to explore a bit after the fact and didn't find anything worthwhile. Visuals are nice enough and at least it's fairly polished? I have no idea why this is 85/89 on metacritic. maybe 7/10 for me

It’s probably bing-able in less than 20 hours. But, I always play slow myself. Probably take about 40 hours for me.

                                                                    Comment

                                                                                Also playing Age of Empires 4, but despite the nostalgia factor, I'm not feeling the love.
