No shame. Sekiro's final boss is some bullshit, honestly.
There is people that murder and still "feel fine" doesnt mean its ok.
What a fucked up comparison.
yeah it was lol sorry.
It was obviously a joke...
How do you compare something so serious as murder to playing video games. That comparison is ridiculous.
Maybe I should inform the police abou this
The Made No Sense Award goes to you brah. lmao
Cant get a joke award goes to you brah. lmao
Sure. Court gives out death penalties and people are okay with it.
Thanks for the morning laugh. And people downvoting is even better.
I hear you friend but don't you think you're understating things a bit too much. The man who wrote this article is a moral reprobate of the highest order. Genocidal maniacs, pedophiles, rapists, murderers, and Donald Trump: they are all utterly despicable people beyond the pale, but the man who wrote this article...there's simply no words for the evil he has wrought.
Shame! Shame! Shame! Now strip off. I have a bucket of rotten fruit and veg to throw at you.
You're telling us because you don't actually feel fine. You're looking for validation.
Every now and then I'll read a comment that makes me grin and think out loud "got 'em." Well put.
How about those morons that don't want them to add an easy mode because they want to protect from software's vision but the more they talk the more you realize they don't give a crap about the vision they just want to boost their ego telling other people they can beat the game because it makes them feel superior. They need to work on their low self-esteem.
Completing a challenge that's regarded as tough and few can accomplish forms a sense of accomplishment. It is neither moronic or an indication of having low self-esteem. Wanting to preserve the formula, the vision, and the memories that come through the experience is a noble cause - because those who see the uniqueness in it want it to remain as it is.
Chaos well put
those same people who would say nothing about it had the articles not been written? Those people and their ego?
Not that long ago, I've met a guy who climbed mount Everest. He was very very proud about it. Its strange I, nor anyone with us that night (the "morons") never once thought he was unjustifiably bragging and certainly did not wish for climbing Everest to become easy to climb for anyone. That's the nature, the reality of it, its a very challenging climb and we were fine with that reality because we could, should we wished to, climb any other mountain we choose except Everest. And that's damn fine.
You got it wrong. The issue is journalists want some studios do their bidding.
Nah it’s those that can’t beat the games that are crying because their little egos get bruised.
And how about the morons who want to add an easy mode because 'inclusivity'. Its not mandatory fgs.
I can't speak for anyone else, but as for me it is 100% about the "vision" as you call it. I prefer to call it the experience though. The experience of defeating a difficult boss is paramount to what From is creating. That feeling IS what separates their games from the rest, and to dilute that is to completely destroy what they set out to do. It is empirical. One must get that rush and experience the feeling to understand the finer points of the debate. Your brains reward center being flooded is the reward for the hard work and thought you put in. Easy mode takes that all away.
I'm fine with that.
Accept easy mode changes none of that u still get ur masochist time while other get to also enjoy it...not wanting easy mode will never make sense other than the statement dude made to you
Correct. He wants a helping of "You would have done it anyway." Not going to happen, cheater!
Half the article is essentially complaining that the boss fight isn't fair, and it's trying to put forth an argument that well, I mean, I HAD to cheat. The games being unfair and it's silly to expect me to beat four phases of a boss fight. Like cmon guy jeez. Just cheat and be like yeah I cheated I wanted to see the end who cares. Don't try and moralize a whole piece about how great it was and how you only had to do it because the game. The worst part is that the guy in the article complains about a mechanic that is actually there to speed the last fight up because he didn't understand it. Embarrassing.
His point with the electricity is that it's not practiced enough. Well, you already had one boss fight with it, and then some of those weird squid enemies in the Fountainhead Palace area have electricity moves also. Regardless, it's a pretty simple counter move. Just jump right as he swings at you, then attack before you hit the ground. It may take a couple of tries, but it makes that final wave so simple once you get it.
It’s a really easy counter lol. I don’t get why people are having so much difficulty. It’s like they’ve forgotten reaction time can be a thing in games.
The first two of the phases to that fight aren't even hard the last two have the same movesets so it's not like a overly complicated one either, everything he uses against you are things you should have learned earlier in the game, it's completely fair lol.
I see it like this... If the goal is just to see the end of a game, there's YouTube. If the goal is to beat the game and you can't under normal circumstances, sure, use cheats. But don't expect From Soft to hold your hands, folks. Of they don't want to make it easier for you, they shouldn't have to. Don't buy the damn game. I honestly cannot understand the mentality of people on this issue. If it's too hard, you're probably not enjoying the game. In that case, why even play it? Why buy it? "Oh, I didn't know it'd be this hard!" Maybe you should wait to read reviews first. It's crazy. Well, now people have a way to make it more approachable, so can we let this issue die? Or are people going to complain because the console version doesn't have this solution? Being upset about there not being an easy mode is like complaining about Team Ninja not making characters nude. The community comes in, makes changes, and there's your solution on PC. But in terms of the developer's original vision, respect it or don't buy it.
So what you mean to say is that the game beat you.
In Japan, game owns you!
I know this gets said Alot buuuut, back in the day games were so much harder, no you tube guides, just gaming magazines and word of mouth. No health regen. Point being, writing that artical was time wasted when you could be getting good. Imagine the thrill of beating said game. You have robbed yourself of that. Shame.
I would say I am averagely good at games, when I eventually beat the last boss in Sekiro I felt like a god!!! I would never look to cheat myself of that feeling of satisfaction; over a period of probably 3 or 4 hours, I learned every combo of the boss and chipped away at each of his stages until suddenly, I beat it. This is the same for every FromSoftware game, its the satisfaction of spending the time to improve, to pick up 'tells' in the animation and to work out when to press the attack, that makes succeeding so satisfying. The fact that this guy has written a whole article just makes me think he isnt 'fine with it' given that he is seeking validation for his cheating from the vocal minority asking for an easy mode. I dont say this as an elitist by the way, I struggled with Sekiro a hell of a lot, but I am starting to really resent this bashing of From Software's creative design choices for their own work.
Agreed. I have so much respect for them and to see so many articles being negative because of such a pathetic reason (which is clearly the current trend to hate on something for as haven’t ever seen this be such a widespread issue previously) makes me really pissed off...
I know a couple of people that only play games with cheats, I remember talking to a friend and he told he was playing Fallout 3 with a super jump, so he could explore faster.
How di you cheat in this game
Probably on PC i imagine, don' t think you can cheat on the console versions.
Okay that makes sense. These articles are silly
Damn, this game has more freaking articles about how hard it is than any game I've ever heard of. Even when the first Dark Souls came out I don't remember so much commentary on the "ethics" of the game's difficulty, or whatever. I've just ordered the game and it is supposed to arrive in 2 days, and I'm very excited to play it! I'm expecting it to be much harder than Dark Souls considering all the press it's getting, or are people just whining now because it's been 3 years since the last Dark Souls game came out and all these media folks forgot what a hard game looks like or something? Note: I highly doubt this game is as hard as the final Dark Souls 3 DLC, The Ringed City, now that DLC was some BS, I personally absolutely hated it, because it forced you to just run for cover through most of the areas, which is not my style of Dark Souls approach, and I didn't like how that DLC kind of pigeonholes the strategy you MUST use to get through it, whereas Dark Souls to me is wonderful because the challenges always have so many different strategies you can use to get past them, different styles of gameplay and types of character builds, but The Ringed City just flouted that whole idea for me, and said "you will run for cover and that's final!" and I was like "To hell with you, Ringed City, you're no fun!".
Well I beat all the bosses without cheats. Sure, the final boss took me a boat load of tries, but I eventually learned his move set and was able to have a gameplan on what to do when I see certain animations play out. It's about perseverance and learning. None of the bosses in any souls games are "impossible".
So in other words, you were to lazy to learn the boss's patterns and get better at the fight. Yeah just another crybaby. I bet he wants an easy mode too.
Good for you, i guess? Is there really any point in this article? I use cheats occasionally, should i write an article about that fact and how i feel after cheating too?
So now you PC folks finally got a taste of Fromsoftware greatness now you guys complained it's too hard,need an easy mode and now this guy resort to cheating. Hilarious considered that the same folks are port begging Bloodborne few years back.
Fuck are you talking about? Literally every Dark Souls game is on PC.
Hey, some folks are ok with telling the world they can’t hack it.
Well as long as you enjoyed it and are happy with you're PT I guess congrats on beating the game
Sounds like you're feeling guilty though, otherwise, why even write this article?
It's ok but I personally think that the game you have played is not sekiro anymore.
Some people settle for mediocrity.
I'm so tired of these losers complaining about the game, just shut up about it.
Attention whore!!! Get Laid or something....
The whole game is some bullshit honestly. By far the worst game FromSoftware has released in the last decade.
I’ve played through Demon’s Souls, all Dark Souls and Bloodborne several times. They’re all good. I’m good at games. Sekiro just sucks.
^^^^^ Git Rekt
Just keep that L1 down and you will do just fine. It's the same as with Dark Souls, your posture will break if you hold it too long. Now you just got a meter for it.
I don’t recall asking for tips about how to play it. I’m well aware of how the game is meant to be played. I just think it’s a tedious, boring garbage pile.
the great thing about this and the recent debate about difficulty levels is we shouldn't care what you do with your game in your home. you want to play on easy, med, or hard. it doesn't hurt anyone. you want to cheat? you're just cheating yourself. but that also doesn't or shouldn't matter to anyone. play how you want. hater "YOU SHOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO THAT" lol
Or you just accept that the dev didn't include difficulty modes for a reason and either play it and understand it or move on to other games that cater to your needs.
that is their decision. the day they say they've made their games with difficulty settings i hope you feel the same. because i have a feeling they will, and i know that the tears will flow. i play all my games on the hardest mode. i just don't understand why people cry when someone mentions a setting so others can enjoy the game as well. i could care less if someone plays it on easy. as long as it doesn't interfere with other gamers, multi player, score prizes, and so forth.
@Sampsonon "Its their decision" That's fine, it is their decision to cheat, however, don't publish opinion pieces trying to apply pressure to a developer for following their own vision for their own works. This guy is perfectly entitled to play however he wants (even if he is missing the whole point of the game) but this whole vocal minority moaning on the internet because they don't have the patience to learn to play the game is supremely frustrating. It is a distraction from what should be the focus of the online discussions, how fantastic the game is for fans of the developer and this genre.
@LoveSpuds: some people will never be able to finish the game because they are casual gamers, unlike many of us, that want to sit down after work and lesson the difficulty. you say if someone can't play it they should move along. well that's sucks for a person that likes samurai style games and the setting, only to have a difficulty that stops them from liking the game. i know people that have played other games where the game was a little too hard, they could play it but they don't want to be frustrated. instead they lower the setting to medium, where it still poses a good challenge, so they can at least enjoy it. think of all the games that have extreme hard settings to the easiest of easy setting all in the same game. i don't care who's out there playing it on easy, and i bet for those same games you never ever thought "this just sucks that somewhere out there someone is playing God Of War on easy while I'm playing it on the hardest setting. it just doesn't happen. and it won't happen if FromSoftware did the same. ths topic is only frustrating because of this elitist attitude from the minority of gamers that think they are the only ones that should be catered to.
I don't think cheating in a single player-only game is that big of a deal, but I also don't think they should add an easy mode.
why?people play games on a less difficult setting all the time with games you set to the hardest mode. did it matter for those games? no! so why this game? you can play it the way it was meant to be played while some person in another country is playing it on medium. it won't effect your game.
"why?" At this point, people should be used to/aware of the difficulty of Miyazaki games, that's why. If you can't handle the challenge, that's your own fault, not the game's.
"why?people play games on a less difficult setting all the time with games you set to the hardest mode. did it matter for those games? no! so why this game? you can play it the way it was meant to be played while some person in another country is playing it on medium." Have you seen most &qu
