Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has started a discussion around games being too difficult and the demand for an easy mode, but thankfully modding on PC has made it possible now.
Why ?! The game is meant to be hard and tbh it's not even that hard once you know everything I'm one trophy away from the plat and the game is super fun
lol you grinding for skill points? mwahahaaa Man that takes a while
You don’t even have to grind that much in this game to get better at the game. Just beat bosses, get their souls to Improve attack stat, get the beads to improve defense, and done
Dude I have the Platinum Trophy. I was talking about having to upgrade all of your skills to get that trophy. It was the last trophy I had to get and it took me hours just to get it.
Same here, that was my last trophy also. I guess if I played through the game 4 times, I would get enough naturally, but I only played trough twice, so those skill points were a bit of a grind. Regardless, it was a great game and that first kill, blood spray, and sound was as satisfying as the last.
Sush Yes that is true :(
So, I adore the souls series and this game is an instant classic. I’ve also beaten it (Shura ending, no grinding) and almost done with the other 3. But let me just say in all humbleness, if this game was like 30% less demanding, git-gud-wise, the gameplay would be just as interesting and it would still be challenging. The death penalty is also a hard pill to swallow. If they could maybe subtract just 15% or change it to where you could collect your “bloodstain” it would feel less enraging. Okay there, I will never admit to wanting to make a game easier again after this because I’m too prideful.
No way, i's perfect as it is. I can't wait for the dlc to come out, probably announced soon.
It's not hard good to hear but some people want to play the story or just hack and slash
Yes, I’m sure this game is like super easy for you because you have the fastest reflexes mankind has ever known. Dude, everyone agrees that Sekiro is hard. To say it’s easy is just trolling, you big ol’ troll haha!
You know what’s even better for beginners? Practice. Like when a beginner picks up a playing piano. Does piano have an easy mode? Nope. Take lessons, rehearse, get better, master your craft. The end.
so if a person buys a keyboard and learns to play notes with the help of it, how does that effect you on the other side of the world with your piano? you won't be seeing them learning right? please explain to me why you care? I've asked that question of people that talk like you and none have given a valid answer.
There's a difference between sitting a student down with "Mary had a Little Lamb" and learning a few scales, versus sitting down with "Flight of the Bumble-Bee". You start with one and move up to the other and people get what they want from playing the instrument since their personal enjoyment affects nobody else. If a person wants to play the game on an easier mode it doesn't affect me in the slightest so why should it bother anyone else? Are you afraid of losing cred? Are you afraid of some grandma commenting "Told you I could beat it. Suck it!" and you can be all "Nuh UH, Grandma! Did you beat it on.....EASY?!?!?!" Seriously, people need to check their E-peens at the door--nobody is impressed.
Sorry but it doesn't matter what you say no amount of logic or common sense will ever change the thought process of the Instant Gratification Generation.
@sampsonon if you cant practice on stuff that means you're an incompetent fool that should die with the next wave of natural selection, and you are a useless liability on mankind that is a waste of resources like oxygen and food, you are completely useless and your opinions dont matter to anyone
@swiftfox if you cant practice on stuff that means you're an incompetent fool that should die with the next wave of natural selection, and you are a useless liability on mankind that is a waste of resources like oxygen and food, you are completely useless and your opinions dont matter to anyone
@neutralgamer1992 if you cant practice on stuff that means you're an incompetent fool that should die with the next wave of natural selection, and you are a useless liability on mankind that is a waste of resources like oxygen and food, you are completely useless and your opinions dont matter to anyone
Here is the thing though why does it bother you and anyone else if a game has a easy difficulty mode or not? Everyone on this site is a damn pro gamer and gets platinum trophy for every game they play we get it yall are the 1% It's sad when people on gaming sites feel like they should dictate if a game gets a easy mode or not Since yall already beat the games what's the big deal anyway Every game should have different difficulty options so people can play whatever suits them best and I for one am glad most games now come with the option and moving forward even more will
It amazes me that this isn’t more obvious to folks like you. The reason why it matters to people like us is that we care about the future of the human race. We look out and see cries of weakness and frailty at every turn. It’s a worrying sign and, while I know we have little power to change this, we can at least speak out against such softness in the hopes of reaching a few souls.
While I understand why a mod like this exists... How can you say you beat a game when you didn't do it how the developers intended it? At least once.
"How can you say you beat a game when you didn't do it how the developers intended it? At least once." Why should I care what others do with a game?
With the Souls games you should. Cheating is cheating regardless. Don’t go to the souls community saying you beat the game with an easy mode mod. You won’t be welcome
Yeah, don't plan to do that. Also don't care if anyone beat it with or without mods. Not sure why anyone would.
@sampsonon I have a life and I have beaten every souls game What about you snowflake? Still gonna demand an easy mode?
most games have easy, medium, and hard modes. good game too. why don't people cry about that? and why do you care? plus, the more people that can play it the more revenue the company makes, which in turn goes towards another project. more money for put towards games makes for a better experience in most cases.
the developers have now intended to make the game with two modes.
Cool. People's quest to make a good game, shitty.
how is it shitty? i mean if adding an easier mode for people that don't sit around their parents basement playing games all day. what's wrong with that? what? you think completing a video game is a big accomplishment? you have issues, and need to find a higher cause. little kids.
The curled generation that won't wanna make an effort.
new easy mode "cheat"
I thought PC gamers are the cream of the crop. Why do y'all need an easy mode? Can't handle the same game of the console peasants lol? Let the excuses begin...
Are you implying that some console players if given the ability wouldn't do the same? It's on PC because it's the only platform with that ability.
BLow, you speak as if the majority of PC gamers requested this. See this is what you console gamers don't get. PC allows anyone to create whatever the f*** they want if the modding capability is there for that particular game. It doesn't reflect all PC gamers preferences. PC gaming is the wild west where anything goes and there's all kinds of different communities from niche to mainstream unlike the hive-minded console gamers.
So someone makes a mod and somehow pc gamers are trash? Stay on your pay for online, +20% cost per game, low frame rate, babysitter machine. I’ll enjoy adding HOURS of content for FREE you’ll never get to enjoy.
if you need an easy mode, Sekiro is not for you.
So many people in here whining about how other people play a game. No one's forcing you to use the mod, they're not cheating you out of anything, y'all need to chill.
Lots of gatekeeping with this genre of game. I don’t understand why. I beat the souls games and BB and had a blast. But they’re genuinely cool games and it’s nice that more people can play them. Doesn’t mean the enemies just look at you and die just because it’s easy. It’s not hurting anyone.
If you can't make your way through this game through practice and precision, then stick to Mario Brothers. Seriously, you're an idiot if you need this easy mod.
Your username is legit.
But that defeats the purpose of a Souls game.
to all the losers that are crying about an easy mode for people that would like to enjoy the game but don't have, and may never have the skills of someone that sits all day collecting welfare and playing games. easy mode for you is too easy. easy mode for someone else is hard but playable. now get up and get a job. that would truly be an accomplishment.
This is perhaps the dumbest comment of the year. “Hurr durr u play hard game you neckbeard moms basement dwelling virgin hurr” Seriously all your comments are always fucking stupid. You tell others to get a job and all you do all day trying to be edgy in the internet. Your projection is showing.
