    Does anyone feel disappointed with Gun Fort?
    It looked awesome from outside, but on the inside it's just some lame cave.
    From should've made it into a proper location, maybe with gun prosthetic pickup and gunpowder-based environmental hazards.

    I was a little disappointed with it. From a distance, I assumed it was going to be some kind of interconnected mountain fortress, but instead it was just a small group of gunners sprawled across a few cliff sides, with some wooden fortifications and a shack at the top. I remember falling through the hole in the bridge on my first sprint attempt, conveniently grappled to safety, and then proceeded to stealth kill most of them as I made my way to the cave entrance. Just a brief sightseeing distraction with an easily avoided ranged hazard. And damn that Snake Eyes...

    After my 2nd platythrough, here are my favorite bosses:

    The Sword Saint: fantastic arena, great moveset, very satisfying to master
    Demon of Hatred: also very fun moveset, makes good use of the grapple

    Going for Ending number 3 to see some bosses I've never played before :D

    Got enough carp scales to buy Floating Passage. I quite like it. 5 quick hits and quite spammable. Killed one of them purple ninjas with pretty much just that.
    Facing bit of a problem with gourd seed now, Emma won't give me the option to upgrade flasks anymore, she's just rambling on about Isshin. What should I do to be able to upgrade Gourd again?

    The only challenge left for me is the sword saint and I'm really feeling my age. He's so fast. It's a fight unlike any other...

    From's games are getting faster while we're getting older. I also felt this is their last game I was able to finish, barely. The next one will be for Korean minors only.

    Well.. I came to this after playing Devil May Cry 5 and that one is faster. Thing is it also doesn't have a shitty camera so it's still easier. If these faggots at least made it so you wouldn't be losing your lock-on constantly.. But nope. Combat being fast is not an issue when it isn't janky. I'm having too many deaths that don't feel like my own fault here.

    Smarter. If you don't become more self conscious about the shit you are wasting your time on as you get older - you're a goddamn retard. Maybe we could still sit in front of computer for majority of the day learning to play games perfectly. But why the fuck would we, we're not kids anymore and there's other shit to do. Games should be fun, not work. Unless you make money playing them.

    Is there a trick to make this fucking monkey do the nly attack that makes him fall down and gives me a opportunity to spear him? He just doesnt do it and everytime I try to find other openings I take way more damage in the exchange then he does because hes continuously attacking. I also found now ay to get behind him to get a few quick slices in because he turns around quickly and hits me or starts screaming.

    Don't try to get behind her, forget about quick slices. The second phase is all about posture. Parrying her attacks shouldn't be a problem after a short learning curve, she's p. predictable. Just try to perfect-parry as much as possible and watch for those two big dick whacks, that's your only opportunity to put in some HP damage into her.

    I think people have problem with the ape fight because they're trying to fight the 2nd stage the same way as the 1st - being reasonably aggressive and HP focused. That's futile. 2nd stage is almost entirely reactive, defensive fight, except for that one moment when she staggers after that heavy deflected attack. With that in mind she's one of the easiest bosses in the game.

    But if I try to stay close how would I escape the scream. The time it takes me to get out normally is enough to kill me and if I manage I will be killed the second time because that terror shit stays a while.

    The animation for when he pulls up his head to start screaming starts before the red kanji for it appears, so keep an eye on it.

    Don't push right into her face, just kindda hang around her and bait her into attacking so her posture constantly depletes (which is happening much slower than in the 1st stage, that should be a hint for you). Escaping her screams is very easy if you're fighting defensively, not aggressively. That's the key - don't go all Leroy Jenkins on her, don't be hurrrr imma kill you byatch schwing schwing schwing. Just stand around, defend, take a few steps back if she screams or get in a spear or a few slices if you stagger her. That's all there's to it.

    I know sword saint is hard and all, but not hard enough to see so many people quitting the game over it. I'm seeing a lot of people on Youtube just baiting the jumping spear overhead and hitting him once, then just running away from him for the rest of the fight and dragging out the whole fight to well over 10 minutes. It'd be so much easier to just learn to deflect, and he's so easy to mikiri while lightning reversals just destroy him.

    With that schtick it'd take 10 minutes just to beat one phase.

    Hit-and-run is obviously much slower, dumber and less fun but it seems some people just really can't into a normal fight.

    Flammable Demon is down. It took me 1 hour because I'm my worst enemy (also greedy as fuck).

    This boss fight is good but nowhere near the difficulty of Isshin. You can punish almost all of his attacks. I've become so confident in this fight that I could carry on for more.

    3 times I lost at one hit. One I jumped into a fucking tree and twice I got greedy when he was doing some combo. In the end I chilled out, kept my cold blood and went for the kill.

    I have to admit that is one of the better fights from the game. Nice.


    Also I need a fucking bead. I killed everything and I have 3/4. One more please.

    Go to where Isshin was sitting in the Castle and go downstairs in the room below him. That's the only mini-boss I missed.
