04/10 || New Game Train || Sekiro || Everything but the End

Seriously, this game continues to be better than it had any real right to be. Large portions of this stream were mostly just us running through the Fountainhead Palace beating up the sort of ancestors of the Okami Clan? Or maybe just the main branch of the family? Either way, we managed to find basically everything in that madhouse, including the damn giant carp, that was sort of a whole thing.

I really wish I hadn't been spoiled on the mechanics of the Divine Dragon fight, he's a pretty classic "Puzzle" boss ala Yhorm from DS3 but I feel like he's a better fight and less built around a unique mechanic. I unfortunately I got spoiled on the mechanic, sort of the same as the Folding Screen Monkeys, but I think this is a greater loss and will still be a fun fight on later playthroughs.

Then we dealt with the Demon of Hatred. Uhg, we started this fight around 2:47:30 and I don't hate it but i don't feel like it was a good fight for this game, it feels like and amazing late game Dark Souls fight, but this game doesn't give us the control over damage output the DS gives players, either through weapon choice, weapon scaling, stat buffs, he're we're stuck with a single weapon that just nips at his heels for 3 health bars.

For Context, I didn't kill him until 5:13:00 it took two and a half hours, admittedly with some fucking about in between, but the only other boss in any game that took me that long was freaking Midir in DS3.

But I continue to love this game and if you think it looks sweet, please consider getting it with our Humble Affiliate link to help us out.

04/08 || New Game Train || Sekiro || I Need to Stop Streaming So Long!

Good lord I streamed way too long on the 8th. So the focus here was almost entirely on boss clearling, then again I swae that is the focus half the time with these streams since I do a bunch of the exploration and such off stream so I can play more Sekiro.

Most of this was hunting down things like Headless and the Shichimen Warriors. We also had to fight our way through Owl , which was not my favorite fight, honestly found it to be a slog because some of his mechanics simply didn't seem to have a solid counter.

But once we did manage to get through Owl it was onto the Fountainhead palace and the freaking True Monk Fight, and DAMN IT THAT WAS AWESOME! Since this stream I figured out why I was having some weird video issues with Sekiro, and I want more than anything to come back and do that fight more now that the video will be perfect and buttery smooth.

If you want to play Sekiro, think about getting it over at the Humble store and helping us out at the same time by using our affiliate link.

04/01 || New Game Train || Sekiro || We Boss Hunting Now

Like damn it, this entire stream was boss hunting. We took out the remaining Snake Eye, the other Centipede, because of course there are 2. We also fought the big armored boi with no real name but still a mini boss.

We also.....fought? The Panel Monkeys......fight feels like a weird word to describe as a fight, its was just sort of a thing? That was more of just sort of a puzzle thing with occasional stabbings?

Oh right and we burned everything in Mibu Villiage to the ground, both freaking bosses just broke my brain a bit for some reason? Like O'Rin screwed me up for a bit because I didn't realize she was turning intangible so I felt like random attacks just weren't landing, well because they weren't. Once I figured that out it clicked.

Same with the Corrupted Monk, for some reason I got it in my head it was a Vitality over posture fight like lady butterfly. Maybe because the Monk was more relaxed than the other posture bosses, but once I realized it was a fight like centipede, it just worked.

Shoot right this stream also went super long because I got a massive Raid from Joekim, somehow I forgot that was this stream.

Hey, if Sekiro looks like your jam then maybe think about getting it on Humble and use our affiliate link to help us out.

03/27 || New Game Train || Sekiro || Part 2: Senpou and Gunfort

Why, Why did I stop moving through Senpou Temple? We started this part of the stream by moving through and around Senpou Temple which in retrospect I had really good luck at. But no, no I decided to stop exploring there and go to the freaking Gunfort, home of everything here susck including Giraffe, the most fucked up inhuman thing I've seen in a long time.

Like Giraffe is actually an amazing fight but not one that I think I was mentally prepared for, but hey he did finally teach me to deflect better. Oh Right and the sentient monkeys and the surprise boss, those happened this stream too, damn this was a jam packed stream.

But hey remember that if you want to get Sekiro you can get it on Humble using our affiliate link and help us out at the same time.

03/27 || New Game Train || Sekiro || Part 1: Ashina Castle Boss

So many weirdly hard bosses, like in part one of this stream we fought like the Ministry Shinobi Lone Shadow Longswordsman, whose basically just one of the purple clad shinobi we've seen before, he just has a second health bar, and girthier health bars than the normal enemies as well.

We also started venturing into the hell pit that is the Ashina Depths.....yeah that was a thing I regretted, poison lake, re-deads, gun women. Oh Right and we found both of the Snake Eyes twins. I largely blocked those out because I hated both of their fights.

And uhh the last....2 hours is basically all just me slamming my head into the Ashina castle boss fight. Like looking at it now I'm like....60% sure I could do it better now that being aggressive in select moments has finally clicked.

If you're looking to pick up Sekiro: Shadows Die twice, please consider getting it on Humble using our affiliate link to help us out at the same time.
