  1. Let us measure

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    It's strange, I found NG+ a real breeze, especially after completing that end boss - you go back to the start and just obliterate everything. I took a slightly different ending route on NG+ tho: So I naturally thought NG++ wouldn't be too much harder, but on several of the major bosses especially, I was finding my posture getting hammered really quickly. I could no longer block, it had to be parries now, and even then parrying a lot of the boss attack strings would fill up the whole meter quickly - one mis-timed parry and you were broken. Found this the most on (end game spoilers): Phew! Might have to go and play Yoshi or Animal Crossing or something...

    The end boss on NG++ down. No frills in the end, I couldn't get the timing down for using the sabimaru. I think I ended up pretty much perfectly parrying everything. An almost religious experience.

    Thanks for all that, the sabimaru is definitely one of my more underused tools. When you say his leap, do you mean the one he does at range where he slams the spear into the ground? Tried to dodge round that, but the auto-tracking is pretty mad! Definitely finding it a lot harder on NG+2; it didn't occur to me that the posture damage enemies do would increase incrementally too.

    Ok, thanks fella. Will give that a try. I always ended up parrying it, it didn't occur to me to just dodge!

    Could really do with some tips for the last boss (despite completing him once before lol!). I'm on NG++...

    On NG+ I've learned to absolutely love the Snake Eyes. I think I must have cheesed them a bit on my first run through as I certainly don't remember finding them as difficult as I did on NG+1+2. But now I can reliably get them both with very little camembert; just some satisfying punishes the moment they whiff their 'get over here!' grabs.

    Definitely all of that @Karzee. I'm on NG+ at the moment and it's like a sick-as victory lap; bosses that I spent days on a mere fortnight ago falling first time round. It's an amazing feeling. And the game hasn't got any easier really, it's that you've got gudder, thanks to the game. What was funny is that I didn't really feel that the combat had 'clicked' right up until the final showdown. But that final fight is a fucking baptism, and NG+ is Sekiro reborn.

    I found out last night that you still can! Echo @Stanshall's thoughts about a certain optional end game shinobi boss, an absolutely brilliant fight. Just sitting on the sofa right now with my heart in my mouth. Started it as a throwaway just-one-more-go thing, not really expecting much, and everything just bloody clicked. Just like DoH, I didn't need to res, just responded naturally and reflexively to the shit he was throwing my way. Haven't had a gaming experience like that in a long, long time. From know what they're goddamn doing. God, need a stiff drink...

    And DoH down! Got him without dying once in the end.

    A lot of truth on this page so far. I liked settling down with a nice rum of an evening to a two hour sesh of pure uninterrupted intimate Genichiro. Just holding block down the entire first encounter so that he could show me his moves, slowly learning when was a good time to get a cheeky hit in, which combos of his I'd be able to parry reliably, which moves I could perhaps punish... It was, in a word, fun. I reckon it took me two and a half hours to beat him. Speaking of fun, I've had a similar sesh with DoH...

    Sweet as, cheers fellas. Might put OF off for the time being. Not that I'm finding him difficult or anything, ahem...

    @Stanshall, I'm on OF too and about to face DD in the FP - does the OF fight remain accessible even if I defeat DD and continue with the story?

    Thanks for this. With a very light googling* I've managed to find out what to do. Would never have found it by myself... *A true shinobi always makes the most of the tools available to him

    Ok, thanks. Had a brief sniff round the area again but nothing much has changed.
