    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    Is that NG 2+? I wonder if I have screwed up by as Ive just read on the wiki that Oof. Because in the third phase of the Sword Saint fight I found Sekiros posture damage really tough to handle already and had to spend a lot of time staying away from him and holding block. Sounds like you are taking a lot more posture damage there than before? So I dont know if this tactic works on ng++ but I used the for p3 and p4 to nuke him down faster. In phase 3 I would and the rest of the fight was done mikiri deflecting and chipping away health when possible. For p4 I used

    Im done as well, Sword Saint down this morning.
  3. I dont know if this demo actually works - I havent tried it. But it should give an idea how dolby atmos works for games. Its been a game changer for me in some games, f ex PUBG where sound plays such an important role in the gameplay It was updated recently too, with the ability to upmix any source to a 3d space https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnarcher/2019/02/24/xbox-one-is-getting-another-game-changing-feature/#31fb1c5d7901
  4. I havent read any of these news, but regarding the the current situation on ps4 - does that have any kind of 3d audio output? The xbox has Sonic, and Dolby Atmos for Headphones, maybe thats what theyre referrring to

    I wish I played this on the ps4, the bumpers on the xbox controller are a pain in the ass

    Im trying to work out the last boss at the moment and Im not really feeling it. A lot of stuff to remember and it takes a lot of energy to keep getting where you need to practise. I would have liked a shorter end boss tbh after all of the hard work until that point. Great Shinobi Owl has been the absolute toughest boss in my view and I messed up the FO questline so I am going to have to do that next time if there ever is one by this rate

    There is way to make the CM fight a lot easier by using the Before this I found the encounter to be quite tough, and worked on it for hours until I saw this suggested on the wiki

    Reducing the difficulty (ie nerfing the posture and vitality stats) on key bosses like Lady Butterfly, Genichiro, and Great Shinobi Owl would go a long way towards making more of the game accessible to more people I think. The rest of the encounters are fine in my view, but these three seem to have been tuned to high in difficulty given how important they are to progress the narrative. And part of the reason for that I think is that From overestimated to what degree players of their Souls games were able to beat those games on their own. It has been interesting to read just how many players struggle with Sekiro, yet refer to how many times they have beaten the Souls games - in multiplayer - as well as how many players still try to play this as they did DS and end up basically cheesing many of the fights by running around chipping health off.

    I think he always does that thrust move at the beginning of the second phase. Its an invite for an easy mikiri counter, but I found the timing a bit tricky in that you had to move forward a bit before pressing the counter button. When you get used to getting to second phase, just anticipate that forward thrust from him every time at the start. Im not sure if you can dodge that. I used to get a heal in before he came charging. After that, I wouldnt worry about catching his lightning arrows, but just dodge left or right in the last instance before he shoots and you will end up safely on his side with a window to hit him a few times. Hes basically a glass cannon at this stage, and youre almost done. His posture damage shoots up a lot faster compared to the previous rounds (dont forget to try and deflect his combos in between the arrows to break his posture quicker). Youre almost there.

    On the Great Shinobi Owl as well. Got him to second phase a couple of times last night but without really understanding all of the moves he makes. I figured out something along the lines of Nate's post above, after also watching some non-cheese videos of the fight and a really cool no damage-fight on YT. (GSO no damage spoilers) Thats how I would like to play it, but Im not good enough. No matter how many times Ive watched these I cant figure out which of his attack combos I am supposed to first deflect from his right and then dodge his left swing back. I just cant see it (yet), but I am dodging other of his combos and getting hits in like that. I can see something is breaking my posture real bad, I just cant see which one it is lol. Elsewhere, Ive pretty much mopped up everything up to this point, except for the which im going to check out. Its the last prayer bead available so far (I think) and would complete the last necklace I got sitting at 3/4 beads. Ive really wanted to get a bead on the Headless in the game, and went for the second Shichimen Warrior after the Headless Ape and his companion had vacated the premises to get the (Shichimen Warrior#2 spoilers) Pretty straight forward. And it works. Did the Headless in Mibu Village pretty easily with this. Seemed like it has 3 uses, on the fourth it barely affected them.

    I found a sweet spot for farming some quick XP (Mibu Village spoilers) I dont know if these spawn after CM is down or what, I didnt notice them the first time around.

    Thats totally what I did for 2nd phase No regrets

    Ive seen a lot of people playing like this in streams and guides and I think its just Souls veterans who do this

    Ashina Depths cleared, except for HL#2. CM turned out to be pretty tough, in the sense that (tactic spoiler) Found this tip on the wiki which worked out really well (item and skill spoilers) Made the whole fight a hell of a lot easier.
