  1. I just beat J the D, with similar techniques.
  2. Hmm, that didn't show a lot but I shouldn't be surprised - this is Atlus we're talking about. Even though P5 became a bit of a drag in the later stages I'd still welcome more of it, especially if they make the experience a bit tighter. EDIT: give me a sec and I'll put some of this in the OP.

    I still don't have DMC but I've heard nothing but good things about it, so it's definitely on the list.
  4. And done! Two things I noted: 1. ...okay, blocking is underrated here. It's not that I hadn't been blocking in the game yet... I think I was just assuming that I'd never be able to block most of the bull's stuff safely and it would blow through my guard. 2. I was getting too scared to use healing gourds and repeatedly trying to do it in one, but if you have the space you have plenty of time to heal. Onward!
  5. *stamps bingo card* Kidding aside, a lot of the errors were because of my own greed. A player can run around like an idiot and not get touched - it's just a case of finding the opportunities.
  6. ‘mukkers post thrice I was beating my head against Blazing Bull last night - I think I made progress by staying to one side and baiting out stuff, so I’m working on strategy... but as it got late I was just getting worse! (Also I keep forgetting to hold the button to suck up loot, so some saving and shopping still needs to be done!) One thing I think is pretty weak is that the game gives you so much scope for traversal and plotting your route but then will just dump you in an arena where you’re rooted to the ground. I know that’s what Souls fans want but it can be a bit lazy...
  7. Chained Ogre down! I may be mistaken but I could swear I parried the elbow-drop once.
  8. Woo, beat the first General Whatshisface boss! I know it's not a tactic that will work forever, but I decided to go for dodging and baiting over perfect blocks and then it became much easier to see the moves with huge recovery that I could exploit. A promising start so far.
  9. I only really roll my eyes at the BB comparison because I can't stand DS1 and I platinumed BB; different people find different levels of enjoyment from the various games, and it's something diehard fans will never understand if they're people who never bounced off any of the games. Also it's one step away from saying that the guy can only make one kind of game, which is a bit unfair. EDIT: oh and the comparisons are no better than "X is the dark souls of Y" journo shorthand, which can quite frankly die in a fire. Anyway, my copy just arrived, so I look forward to trying it soon.
  10. The new episode's another big road trip with no tent bits (well, there's an intro and outro.) Also nice cars and nice scenery.

    The Commodore 64 Appreciation Thread

    I believe ours came with the "Commodore Sports Pack": The football game had the most absurd tape multiload I've seen, and matches were a complete mess, but Run The Gauntlet and Basket Master were good fun.
  13. Cross-post from the old "should games have easy modes" thread as I feel it's relevant: My point being that "easy mode" can be done with subtlety and without taking away from the core experience (EDIT: I've since completed DS3!) For weapons and armour you could even do something as simple as change gear descriptions to be more transparent: "Easy to wield with low stamina usage and high durability", for example - this would point players in the right direction...
  14. (content warning: baseless speculation) Bumping this with a date to possibly keep in mind... over March 30th-31st, Sega Fes 2019 will be taking place in Akihabara, so there might be something revealed at the end of the month. If you head over to http://segafes.sega.jp/event/index.html, the text below Morgana and Black Frost notes that there will be an Atlus exhibition featuring SMT and Persona, and if you scroll to the end of the page P5 is among a bunch of logos. Again, it could be nothing, but considering the "NEXT INFORMATION 2019.3" in the P5R video, and this event coinciding with the end of March, there might be a thing happening.
  15. Celeste does have “Assist Mode” though. Although I haven’t tried it so I don’t know how much it breaks the experience...
