I lean on the mortal draw a lot is that okay?

My PS4 peasant friend dropped by today and I hooked up to my tv to show him the game in 4k maxed out, he's terrible at games and would never buy it anyway. While casually playing and explaining the game I took on the whole bunch of people battling on the stairs outside ashina castle and then went inside to show him super macho man, back stabbed the other red hat in that room almost by accident and killed the big guy too, all rather easily. Even took a bar off of DoH when I went to show him that. Perspective and approach are so important

Confetti being basically required for some fights is probably my biggest complaint about this game. It's not a problem on a second playthrough, but being unable to beat something because you run out of a fairly limited resource is bullshit.

For what, exactly? I never found it particularly useful but if you do that's great.

I find it unbelievably useful to take health off of bosses. For most bosses, you can't really break their posture until you've done some health damage, and mortal draw does significant damage through block and interrupts most attacks. You just have to time it after a mikiri or other equally solid counters.

Thereís a reason the second half of speedruns is mostly using mortal draw on bosses. Itís very powerful because it does bug health damage through block and youíre guaranteed to get it.

Yeah with mortal draw, even when you have no emblems left you can stunlock some bosses with it

If you think that's bad, I did 2 whole playthroughs without a single Ashina art.

Just an FYI that for whatever reason, once you get the midair deathblow skill, mortal draw does more damage if you jump and use it in the air.

I've gotten to the point that the first bar of Isshin is fairly easy but the second part? they really gave the motherfucker a gun? though it's not as big a deal as I originally thought. I just can't stay close enough to him with all his fuckin jumping around and swinging that loving gently caress stick

You can do it. Don't give up. Pay extra close attention to his attacks. Stay on him.

Gyobu would be definitely be competing for number 1, carried by his English/Spanish voice acting.

edit: there's a charity Sekiro randomizer race set to nightmare mode going on right now if anyone wants to see runners try to get through a mibu village where all the villagers are replaced with Owl/Genichiro/Butterfly:

Say, do you know how to do the walk?

Phase 2 of Isshin is the real boss fight because phase 3 just feels like a complete joke due to the attack he adds actually working in your favor.

The Headless are nowhere near as annoying as the sumo dudes. I am so sick of fighting them.
Also the important detail you're all missing is that after pulling out Sekiro's soul, they stick it up their own butt.

I did it. I had a couple attempts where I had it but choked, several deaths to falling off the cliff including one where I flawless'd genich and first stage isshin, but after I dunno 3 hours or so of trying all together, I did it. This may have been worse than Gael for me.

Got the platinum. I cheesed the last ending but otherwise it was a continuous playthrough. I never did get the hang of the raven mist and umbrella tools and mostly stuck with fire, firecrackers, and throwing stars. This is an incredible game. Im very happy with my time with it.

The umbrella is mainly for widening your parry window on certain bosses and making yourself immune to fire/terror. Anything else is a waste of emblems.
