Didn't feel stealth, just a couple stabs in the back like the rest

Ye not stealthy lol. You don't crouch n hide behind cover or in tall grass or nothing. You can kill from above and behind but it's not stealthy

I think they meant the game is 'low key' a soulslike combat wise

"Preview: Stellar Blade Is a 'Low Key' Soulslike with Strong Potential - Siliconera"


I finally checked out the demo today. It’s not bad. Definitely will punish button mashers. I’m not sure why they are comparing it to a souls like. There’s no meter for stamina.

Souls like no souls lite yes there is a different. Souls lite which makes it have souls like elements, resting with enemies respawning is one of them there are a few more there.

Aaroncls759d ago

everything is soulslike if all you know are soulsikes

jukins59d ago

People read "soulslike" as "exactly like souls" and thats a them problem. To me read it as not button masher friendly. Faster paced than souls but as far as slashing its definitely soulslike in thebfact that you have to be aware of you surroundings and enemy attack patterns and potential

I wonder how little Souls mechanics you can put into a game and a journalist will call it a souls-like. It's fair for Stellar Blade but I wonder.
For SB there is checkpoints that restore your healing flask and reset enemies. Combat involves blocking, parrying, and dodging. Honestly it seems like you just need that which doesn't sound like much to start with.
The more meta element I suppose would be the game pushes you to master it's mechanics but difficulty is and always has been a nebulous thing to quantify.

Must be weird for Xbox fans to see Sea Of Thieves at number 4 on the NPD charts

Well, would you look at that Sony! Guess there’s an audience after all for this stuff.

I wonder where the change from "NPD" to "Circana" ranks on the chart of lamest rebrands? And yes I know it changed awhile ago it just annoys me every time I see it.

No thank you, I prefer to own my games physically whenever possible.

So getting digital licence for free or "nothing" is always "nothing" for you? Generaly I understand, that people prefer physical copies. But if someone gives something for free, I dont get it. You dont have internet? :-)

These never seem to justify the rewards. You'd be better off earning the stars and redeeming them for the store credit. Then using that store credit towards the game like Stellar Blade. You would get further with your points that way and spend less of them

When i did the calculations for helldivers 2 you saved 10 dollars plus the tax you would have to pay compared to buying it with store credit.

Problem is games aren't on Stars on launch and when it goes to stars it is close to having a sale.

I heard the physics on this game are top tier.
