    You guys are making me feel sad.

    Sekiro has the best parrying system i have ever played.

    Edit: and demon of hatred is probably the worst boss in the game, purely because he was a souls boss in a non-souls game.

    The parrying in Sekiro is junk. I can parry my heart out in Metal Gear Rising and Nioh, but Sekiro just feels wrong...

    Anyways, got as far as fighting Delver, and got it to it's second form. I should really go to bed...
    Delver's fun. Each of its forms has very different patterns. My tip is to save your drone ammo for the second form and try to burn through that was quickly as you can (it's the nastiest).

    Don't lose your muscle memory from that fight. Might be needing bits of it again later.

    Third form I found it best to just keep running and dip in for some fast attacks after his big charge thing. It is an awesome fight though. Awesome game as well. Seriously good. I kind of wish I'd waited til the texture shit had been sorted before I played it as it looked like ass.

    @MrAGSystems You're a good way through this now - possibly around the 2/3rds mark. It's a really good game, but not the biggest by the standards of the genre.

    @MrAGSystems That's good going. He took me a lot of attempts. You'll notice the world has changed around you now. The city has degenerated further, closing off some old routes but opening up new ones. Also, a few optional bosses are available once you get back into the city streets.

    It doesn't drop the ball in the final stages. It's a pretty compact game. There's a point just before the last dungeon where you might want to finish up any sidequests, but otherwise the back end of the game is very much like the rest of it. If there's one criticism I'd make, it would be that I found the later bosses a bit straightforward - think my level and gear may have been ahead of the curve by that point.

    But otherwise, what you've seen so far is pretty representative of what's still to go. This was barely on my radar at all, but my pick for GOTY is either this or Borderlands 3.

    @MrAGSystems It's finely crafted all the way through and my only regret is the same as Roguey: I wish some of the later bosses were harder but you have a beautiful Souls-style boss fight coming up very soon. Also, avoid the spoiler below.

    RogueyOne - did anyone ever figure out if you had to fight Little Johnny again at the church if you didn't turn off the computer by the way?

    I really should get back to my NG+ run. I want to see how they flip the story around.

    Ah. That doesn't sound normal.

    @MrAGSystems That sounds shit and very much like a bug. Optional boss so you could just skip it, but hardly a great solution.

    You really don't need to kill those echos though. I didn't even bother with the implants I got from them. Push on! Don't let it sway you. I played through the whole thing looking like a PS2 game dammit.

    It could just be a save glitch so may be worth pushing on through, finding another health station with the world status changed and getting back to it later.

    Damn shame though.

    Finally bit the bullet on this, thanks to this thread and the Steam sale, and I am really surprised by how good it is. A bit easy so far (I think I may be massively over-levelled though) but so more-ish.

    It took me so many attempts to pull off a directional parry.

    I really like the directional parrying. It gives the game its own unique feel. Also dismembering people by punching pieces off them.

    @uiruki Yeah, I went straight from Surge 2, with its directional parry system, into Code Vein, which has a traditional Souls-style parry system. The former feels a lot more responsive and tactile.

    Plus it feels really quite special when you manage to fully parry a four-hit combo from a boss and break its guard. I don't think Delver Echo Alpha even managed to land a single hit on me, as I was pretty damned good at the parries by that point and already knew the timings from the original Delver.
