    Go me, I actually beat him. No cheese, no buffs, just a straight up fight

    Such a tense fight, I was shaking at the end but somehow I knew that it was the one where I did it. Last night I got him down to one hit left and I had 4 gourds left with full health, I did one of those classic Souls over reaching mistakes and the simultaneous hit killed me but not him :(

    Difficult to estimate accurately as some fights only lasted 2 seconds but I bet I've tried that boss anywhere between 70 and 100 times before finally doing it :(

    Well played.

    I always get greedy and go for 1 too many hits in these games, never works out well either!

    I beat Genshiro Ashina yesterday (for the first time outside the tutorial, dunno whether I'll have to fight him again).

    Felt good to finally push his face in (but I still don't feel like I'm good enough for the game). :)

    @retro74 Good show! I've watched vids of that fight, it looks brutal as hell.

    @retro74 i applaud your tenacity, I would not have attempted it that many times. I would have either given up as he is optional or deleted the game in a hissy fit.

    Thanks guys. It wasnít too bad, frustrating yes but I was learning every time so I knew I could do it eventually

    It came down to two attacks that I kept messing up but both were one hit kills. One he sticks you with a fast shuriken and you canít move from his follow up. The second looked like his normal run and swipe but he curves it at the last second and if you use the usual dodge timing he kills you instantly, got to dodge a little later to avoid it

    Done a lot of Fountainhead Palace today including the last Headless- good to get them all done

    Does anyone know where to get a discounted price of the PC version from? Over a year from release, and it's still listed as £50 for the steam version everywhere, including CD Keys. I know Activision are greedy cunts but didn't realise they didn't drop the price on their digital products like this.

    Quick bump for those that don't have it: humble bundle store have Sekiro on PC for 35% off right now for the next 5 days.

    Looks like I didn't have to wait long for my discount after all :)

    I got to the end boss a couple of days ago but not had chance to have a proper decent go at it yet. Just need a clear hour somewhere in my day where I can better get into the flow of the fight better

    Beat the final boss earlier, not quite as hard a fight as the Owl Father but still very tough one for me

    First time Iíve spent a solid hour trying it so it was good to get into a flow. All the other attempts were one or two goes so it felt like I was starting anew each time. Annoyingly I got to the final deathblow once before, was sure Iíd pressed R1, stopped pressing buttons and then he was back from the dead and I was DEADED - very strange

    Had to finish there so not actually seen the end cut scenes yet, will do those tomorrow

    Just in time for Resident Evil 3!! - unless the lure of NG+ is too much

    Overall it was a pretty decent game but not a patch on Demons or Dark and still a little bit behind Bloodborne too

    @retro74 completely agree. It was great but I never want to play it again really. Far too much work.

    @Steve-Perry youíre quite right, it was great and I found the setting almost magical at the start, such a great sense of place

    Then there was a massive low point around the sunken valley and it took a while to recover

    Still a strong 9 out of 10 for me though

    That Ashina Elite has been giving me nothing but grief for the last few days, until I read a suggestion to use the Loaded Umbrella on his skinny arse and got him in less than two minutes... Double deflection and Sabimaru BS :evil:

    This game is doing my head in, but I will prevail in the end.

    Mr elite was one of the most spam deflect enemies in the game after the big centipede guy. He did pretty much one hit kill you if you messed up though.

    Looking forward to another run to the final boss again soon. (I never even bother with the final boss now, pisses me off too much).
