    @Duffking Yeah, itís covered in a new tutorial at the start of the next mission. Nothing goes on B alone though, itís mostly related to ZL. Itíll become clearer!

    @uiruki ah maybe that's it then. I was hitting zl a few times I think, thinking it would get the legion out of the way of the attacks or something. I'll play a little more soon

    The mute thing really bugs me. Never used to in games.

    Ok. Missing something. How do you do the intro mission on normal difficulty instead of casual?

    You have to get through the intro to unlock it and then there's an option to do it again somewhere, I think using the PC.

    @Rusty_M if you go to the pc once you get to headquarters you can redo files at any unlocked difficulty.

    Cor, I just fought the big bastard after the initial bridge investigation and this game is tough to play, so far. So much going on, and concentrating on 2 controllable characters, plus multiple.enemies and several allies is tricky as fuck.My brain is perhaps too old. I won the fight first go, got a D rank though. Anyone else having similar issues?
    I will stick with it, like the style and loving the music, so hopefully it is teething problems. Anyone else

    This game is stylish as fuck. I was quite enjoying it, up until the end of File 2 which was insanely good. I had no idea what was going on in that last fight, but it was awesome.

    The mute thing though, what were they thinking... Still looks like the story is nonsense in a fun anime over serious way so should be real good once I'm done with Control.

    This is fun, but getting through the bigger fights is challenging, never mind getting good rankings. Just finished file 2 and had to use a fair few medicines.

    Ah, the combat REALLY opens up after the first major boss battle. Phew. I should have kept the faith that Platinum wouldn't let us down - just messing about in the Training Room at HQ feels amazing once you can start pulling off combos and stuff. Very happy!
    Also, the story sequences are genuinely decent and not the hammy cringe of Bayonetta (as much as I loved both games).

    Onto file 6 or 7 now. Dare I say it's actually getting easier now?

    How are the visuals? Looks pretty impressive in videos.

    I would say it looks lovely, but very aliased. There is also a slightly odd 'depth of field' effect where it sometimes looks like stuff in the background is being rendered at a lower resolution. It may be a stylistic thing, as it looks pretty cool (arguably).

    I've only played handheld, fwiw.

    A few low Res textures, but they're nicely stylised, so you have to look for them to really see. Fantastic use of colour and lighting. Good specularity on wet ground with good use of screen-space reflection

    It's p. common in Platinum games that there are extra fights to get into if you backtrack at the right times, so it's probably those.

    I'm shocked at how good it looks in handheld mode. I was imagining a XB2 type experience where is was just a blury mess. However it looks better than playing on my OLED.

    It's experiences like this that make me think maybe the Switch Lite could work for me.

    Upto chapter 5... about 8 hours in. Really loving it still, I think I will have to go through and do a second playthrough to get better ranks/pick up missed cases etc.
