    I think it was a tenner when I got it. This seems to be the first time it's not been in a sale since it came out.

    Surprised how easy I'm finding this the second time around. Pretty much at the end of the first island now and think I've only died about 3 times. I was planning on going through with a different weapon but the katana is just too perfect.

    @Decks I couldn't ever leave behind the satisfaction of the Kasuragama's footsweep move. It's just TOO GOOD.

    I did a dual katana run and an Odachi run. The Odachi is awesome. Reminds me of a strength build on Dark Souls, with a heavy weapons.

    Captain obvious says: use lots of fire talismans and those stupid fire masks. One fire mask does like a third of his health.

    I'm still drifting between getting my arse handed to me on NG+ and getting my arse handed to me on NG DLC. Either way my arse is being presented beautifully to me on a platter.

    Are you soul matching your greens? It's definitely worth farming a bit on NG+ to get the gear you want for a load of matching because good equipment makes a huge difference at this stage.

    Dead. Fuck me that took best part of 2 hours, I don't remember even struggling with it the first time through. If someone videoed me there I reckon there would have been enough evidence to get me commited.

    I will purchase this at the weekend to fill the void left by GoW.

    I recall someone saying it had a complex skill tree.

    Noob tips? Or just dive in and work out or for myself?

    I'd probably just feel it out to start with, trying to understand everything straight away will be overwhelming. I'm playing this a lot at the moment so if you're struggling I can enter your game and show you my moves. No voices, I don't think I'm ready to speak to you yet.

    I've got a few +3 greens now. I only actually discovered how the green + soul matching works the last time I played it! I'm putting out okay(ish) damage but I'm just so squishy! I think I need to get an actual armour set on as well, I'm a bit all over the place with it.

    I don't even have any PlayStation friends. You'd be my first.

    I don't know how I feel about you entering me. I'll be alarmed if it involves webcams PSVR helmet and gloves.

    Yeah, at this stage you need to be running with a set or enough of a set to get the better bonuses.

    Theres a good revenant farming area before the boss fight with the Spanish Ninja, so I would spend some time building up a decent inventory of weapons and armour that you can soul match up to a decent level.

    Like I said on the previous page, theres a charm that lowers the set requirements by 1, so if youre wearing 3x bits of red demon armour, you get the set bonus for four, which means you can actually squeeze a good set bonus and one ok bonus from another set in.

    See nicks chat above is some of the things that scare me off. Iím a ďdipperĒ, Iím in and out of games. This sounds like it gets a bit heavy.

    @nickthegun Ah I know the bit you mean. Might do that for a bit. I actually did have a set through most of the latter part of my NG game but then kind of twitched out and started swapping it out for a load of old shite then dismantling it. Not my best move.

    You can do the main campaign without going heavy into it. You don't really have to optimise your build or anything like that, but it does help massively.

    However, the DLC is hard as fuck and you do need to nerd it up to stand a chance otherwise most things start to one shot you.

    I dunno, I found it rewarding, but I know what you mean. I don't often get balls deep into a game like this which does speak of its quality.

    I just throw everything into the katana skill and use my prancing skills to keep me out of trouble. I still don't know what soul matching is.

    @Decks Say you have a level 10 Axe that you will never use, and a level 7 Katana that you like, you can soul match the axes level to the Katana.

    It destroys the axe in the process but then your Katana is now level 10.

    It's a great way to squeeze out a couple of levels into a weapon or armour, and means most item drops can be useful.
