I don't remember if I already asked this but can you jump sweeps and mikiri thrusts that aren't perilous attacks?

Yeah this . Trying to meditate my hype down to manageable levels because I don't think we will see a release date soon, it sounds like a really ambitious project for them. Not really expecting more info til E3 but i'd be happy to get surprised -- do we even know if it's coming to PS4/XB1 or could it be a next gen thing?

Itís badass that there are Bloodborne style items in this game like fat deposits and ďRed LumpsĒ. The Wolf is either a complete ice cold killer or the biggest pussy ever depending on how / how well you play this game.

Ive been doing ok but I feel like I will never be able to punish a sweep attack the way I can punish grabs and thrusts and that the first boss that uses them excessively will be basically impossible for me.

While there's nothing for sweeps that lets you completely destroy them like mikiri does for thrusts, there's a skill on the monk tree that lets you get some extra damage in as opposed to just jumping.

A straw doll (Japanese: 藁人形) is a bundle of straw that imitates the shape of a human. It is often meant to symbolize fear or imprisonment, and was commonly used to adorn a coffin as cursing tool.

In the game, the over-sized doll transports Sekiro from the Wedding Cave to Fountainhead Palace.

There is a wooden piece protruding from its back, with words written on it, called an ofuda or fulu. This is a magical talisman that traditionally functioned as summons or instructions to deities, spirits, or as tools of exorcism.

Same, there's something about a person with a giant katana dodging around in robes that really got under my skin after playing this.
