Sucker Punch made a better historical fantasy game than ubisoft ever could with their multiple Assassin's Creed game.

a few clips ive seen make it seem like the story tries to make the player feel bad for playing ninja that accurate?

>>517554595yeah good thing they copied the gameplay too

>>517554774no, you're just a dishonorable faggot. that's what the samurai would've told you

>>517554595It helps that there's no shitty syfy channel story and thousand year conspiracy shoved into it.I never understood why Ubisoft thought that history wouldn't be intresting enough to the player so they insisted on maintaining a plotline that almost nobody likes or think adds to the story.

>>517554774Yeah and it's kinda annoying. I played straight samurai and the game was still like "JIHN YOU BROUGHT DISHINOR?

>>517554178Holy shit I've been doing literally doing all of thisGlad to know I've been honorable

Prochads, are you playing on Higher Resolution or Better Frame Rate mode?

>>517554774I think the inner struggle of Jin going against how he was thought to fight. The Mongols were fighting smarter than the Samurai

>>517555108resolution.gampley/combat is not fast enough to need high framerate.

>>517555108Better frame rate since I'm on 1080p anyways. Would probably still play on better frame rate if I had a 4k TV though. I imagine it still looks great either way.

>>517555108I always go higher framerate I've got a huge 4k telly (I think my eyesight is starting to go so it doesn't matter anymore) but I always choose higher framerate most of the time it's not that noticeable because the PS4 doesn't even do real 4K anyway.

>>517555261>>517555334>>517555382>>517555108What's the difference? Is it 60 FPS?

Do they actually do anything with the whole honor thing? Do your gameplay choices matter in terms of story? How does the theme of honor resolve in terms of story?

>>517555185This.>>517554774At the start the story shows how the Samurai Way™ is not going to work against this new enemy, so you have to try different tactics. The "canon" way to play is to do both ninja and samurai whenever necessary.

>>517555505No it's just a more solid 30Hopefully it's futureproofed to allow above 30 so the PS5 can play it at a higher framerate like Infamous Second Son is

>>517554178>fighting like a dumbass for a meaningless concept like honour instead of fighting smart

>>517555505It wasn’t when I tried it during the first mission.

>>517554927I heard that originally the modern setting was supposed to be a plot twist that occurs near the end which frames the game. However somewhere along the line they decided to drop that and just made it the main plot instead.

How much should i pay attention to the tales of tsushima?Any worthwhile loot? Feel like ive sunk so more time into them compared to the main line

>>517554774It’s to show his inner turmoil over abandoning the teachings of his Uncle to save him and his people. The best way to play imo is to challenge everyone you can, but go ninja when they have hostages. When they take hostages, honor goes out the window considering they’ll kill them if you’re seen.Games a lot better than I thought it would be. Helps I’m a dumb weeb though.

Does mounted archery appear in this game? Because it would pretty lame to not have in horse archery in a game about Feudal Japan, and with Mongols of all people. Mount & Blade proved it to be a fun and unique mechanic so I don't know why they couldn't pull it off, especially with it being open world.

You guys do bow whenever you can, right?

Does anyone have any cool webms of this game? I keep trying to look up gameplay from Youtubers but they're only in the first hour of the game. It's nothing but cutscenes.

Does anybody know how to turn off the boss health bar? I’m playing hard with the expert minimal HUD and boss health still shows up. It’s taking away from the atmosphere of the fight for me. I just want to focus on the beautiful duels.

Hope you guys always put the katana back in its sheath using the touch pad after a fight

>>517554774Ninja style is easy mode. You should feel bad for it.

The whole conundrum about honor makes no sense in the game.Muh Bushido code was actually written by the Hojo good 100 years after this game, japs enraged Mongols because as soon as mongols sent them messagers they decapitated them for laughs, and guerrilla warfare was already a thing by the time of the Genji wars.Hell Yoritomo killed HIS BROTHER to become Shogun because he was too popular.

>>517554178is this game the definitive push towards historically inspired and grounded games instead of supernatural stuff? sucker punch went from infamous to this. it would be great

>>517557315You follow magic animals to shrines and a guy got struck by lightning during a quest about lightning demons. I love the setting, but it's not really historical. It's the same level of fantasy as most asscreed games.

>>517554178Is it me or is this game kinda... boring. The island is very pretty and the cutscenes are pretty cool but the missions feel like they’re from an open world game from 2014. It’s pretty mediocre overall.

>>517557714oh he seething

Is it just me or are the cuts to a black screen every time you hit R2 to speak really infuriating after a while, it breaks a lot of the tension that builds up?I don't remember modern games like RDR2 having it happen this much and GOW it didn't happen at all

>>517556081parry and move around until you can get at least one on one with enemies. Use R2 to slow down time to see your surroundings. Also styles are important against different types of enemies

>>517558708It really isn't an exaggeration. The movement is terrible which affects the combat tremendously and slows it down>>517558305Why is no lock on good? You roll away and have to take your thumb off the attack/evade buttons to readjust the camera because the angle gets messed up and you can no longer see the enemies. Makes dealing archers really annoying

>>517559427If this game came out years ago it would be much higher, instead its the last Sony open world game and just comes off as iterative.

>>517559974my primary complaint on the combateven if there wasnt a lock on, I still wish it would zoom itself out some moremore then half the time I die its because the camera is stuck behind a bush or tree and its 3 feet away from the fight so I cant see jack shit

>>517560725You can keep it the whole time, but it doesn't do anything for you stat-wise.

>>517559579There is no pick on because if there were, you would lock on to enemy A, get attacked and parry enemy B, and then not be able to attack the now exposed enemy B. The combat is not dark souls, you can't focus one enemy. You need get hits in on whoever you can, whenever you can.

If anything I'm glad people itt can distinguish who wants to talk about the game and who's here just to shitpost

What's a good way to learn Japanese history? I've played the Niohs, Devil Summoner, Sengoku Basra, and read Blade of the Immortal, the Maeda Keiji manga, among other games and manga set in the Japanese past, and I always get confused when stuff and figures take place.

>>517558302Are you unironically a virgin or are you only saving it ironically?

Still have yet to boot the game up. How is the performance on PS4 base? I am fine with dips every now and then, but not every other second. Basically is it like Bloodborne's shitty framepacing, or no?

>>517560786>>hit dodge>>doesn't dodgeYou don't have dodge unlocked yet, retard. You think actual samurais roll around on the battlefield like something out of Dark Souls?

>>517555735>meaningless concept like honourt.roastie

>>517561145read a book retarded gamer

>>517561040Interesting take in theory but in practise the later works better. You're not ignoring other enemies in dark souls and easily swap to focus on different enemies using the controller stick. This game you have a static camera that you need to constantly adjust throughout the fight or you become practically blind and can't see the other enemiesAlso foliage isn't able to be blocked out in combat so trees, leaves, boulders, change in incline whatever are constantly blocking your view. Super annoying

>>517561145Maybe read a fucking book instead of indulging in lowbrow weeb shit

>>517561460books have bad gameplay

>>517554178>Stop Being DishonourableWasn't samurai honour based mostly on absolute loyalty, duty and facing death unflinchingly? Being sneaky may give the appearance of being cowardly, but it would be the duty of a samurai to swallow his own feelings about that and serve his lord in the best way possible. The point was loyalty and duty to master over self.

I got the digital deluxe because I wanted a gold mask. The horse is shit and the mask isn’t even that cool I feel ripped off

>>517561658i found that attacking is always the best choice for engaging enemies

>>517561680Reading is obviously not the only to learn things, moron.

>>517554178>game about discarding your honor to fight the mongols>YOU AREN'T PLAYING IT RIGHT IF YOU'RE NOT AN HONORABU SAMURAICope.

>>517561715It'll be on PC in 6 months to a year, just chill the shit out

>>517561707Spin to win, baby.

>>517561239Way better than I was expecting. It's far from perfect, but it beats the living shit out of Bloodborne. There's isolated instances of big framedrops, but I only noticed that early on during setpieces. Less so as I've played more.

>>517561715if you watch some 5 minute youtube video, i guarantee you. its the full experience.

>>517561715Playing on the base ps4. Its runs fine and load fast as fuck when you fast travel and die.

>>517561826Parry, and spin combo, or kunai stagger and spin combo, it's a lot of fun.

>>517561815>It'll be on PC in 6 months to a year, just chill the shit outHow are you so sure? Isn't the company that made the game owned by Sony?

>>517561715time2idort, bub

>>517561604Well then look up some podcasts man

>>517561476There is not enough time after a parry to switch your lock on to the parried target.

Should I avoid using Kurosawa mode?

>>517561590>you can wear the base traveller’s set while having the bonus of lvl 4Now this is what I'm talking about, more games need this shit especially with how later versions on armor are almost always shittier than the first forms (looking at you Grandmaster Bear)

>>517558021I've been switching between them occasionally and neither completely satisfies me. I can understand nipgo well enough and the performances are plainly better, but the script doesn't match the subtitles completely and the lack of (still bad for the English track) lipsync is a killer.

>>517561590>Also when customizing an armor set, you can press triangle to wear all it’s different versionsI only see the option to switch colors

I want the collector's/dd edition armor set and horse but I got a simple edition. Fags on ebay all insist on only mailing you the code leaflet with shipping costs being higher than the lot itself. Are there any other marketplaces for this sort of stuff?

>>517561863As long as it beats BB, it's fine by me. Digital Foundry's video showed drops, but the pacing wasn't as erratic as BB, so I was worried. Thanks user.

>>517561997I'm saving it for a second playthrough, monochrome film-grain seems like I'd be too distracting if I don't already know the game, plus I don't want to miss out on the details

>>517561997The colors are very pretty so it's kind of a shame to only play it that way but it is cool

>>517555108like 2-3 FPS dips difference with frame rate, so if you have a 4k tv use resolution

>>517561996There's a lot of time in combat to switch. Movement in general in this game is really slow. Also locking on doesn't mean you can only attack in one direction or attack one person it is for a better and dynamic camera angle

>>517562148You have to level up the armor. They have different looks every level.

>>517554476My favorite Manga of all time.

>>517562297A parried target is only exposed for a brief moment, not long enough to switch lock on.

>>517560868Combat is somewhat satisfying, scenery is nice but otherwise it's 100% accurate to that Witcher pasta.

so the perfect parry/dodge timing is incredibly small or am I doing something wrong?

>>517561863>walking sim beats Bloodborne

>>517556789Didn't the Mongols essentially assrape Japan and the Samurai to the point of nearly breaking them, only for a freak storm to win the war for the Japs and get them all hopped up on JAPAN NUMBAH WAN?

>>517561815It won't. Sucker Punch is a first-party Sony studio. Horizon is the only exception thus far and it'll be closer to 4 years since the original release when it's released on PC. Don't hold your breath.

>>517562310Mines at level 3

>>517562491just attack with square

>>517555108Watch the digital foundry video and make your own decision. TLDR is that there's no huge difference between the 2 outside of resolution. Even they were confused by its inclusion. High res mode is locked 30fps 99% of the time.

>>517562491I think it's incredibly small.I find parry timing in general weird in this, you have to 'parry' long before their sword would actually connect, somewhere in the middle of their swing.

>>517561239Better than bloodborne but PS4 is much more louder

>>517554178Based and honorable samuraipilled

>>517562523It should have that option. On bottom right says click Triangle when your changing armor.

>>517562430It literally freezes time for you to react when you parry dude shut up lmaoAnd for blocking you easily have time to swap to a different target and typically the same person is the only one attacking you anyways

>>517562604>more louder

>>517562491It's pretty tight. I don't try to go for it cuz I just get whacked most times. Just go for normal dodge and Perry. Let it be a bonus when you do get one.

>>517561715Maybe hold out for a PS5 if you can spare the extra cashI'm gonna buy a Xbox Sex for the 360 and xbox original backwards compatibility alone so you could do something similar even if you hate sony exclusives.

>>517562648Only on a perfect parry num nutts. If the lock on system only works for perfect parties and nothing else, then it would be fucking busted. The game is better without it.

>>517562494Do you read much? I'm talking explicitly about performance on a base ps4. I agree that Bloodborne is an all-time classic, but shit like your dumbass response reminds me how overrated it can be.

>>517562753So you haven't even played the game..

>>517561715Exactly my thoughts! Same happened with me when Bloodborne came out. Refused to buy a console tho but tried it at a friends place.At first framerate really screwed with me but I powered thru just because I liked the game too much. I really hate that its 2020 and exclusive games are still thing...

>>517562891Didn't address the other part of the post More than enough time to react and locking on doesn't mean you can only attack that locked enemy. Just provides an infinitely better camera angle so you don't have to adjust it constantly in the middle of fightsHow you can defend such an obvious mistake is beyond me lol. They don't even let you swap controls around so you can move the camera while attacking

>>517563004looks like a fucking gay nightclub glowstickI want it

>>517563295Makes sense though, it is the meme mode

not really sure why there isn't a lock on in this game or at least some system to make bushes and shit invisible when they are near the front of the camera

I get what they were going for with the wind mechanic but I wish they just had an option to turn on a minimap. Half the time I cant tell where the wind is blowing and having to stop every minute to use the fucking touch pad to activate the wind slows the game down, makes navigating the world a chore for me.

>>517563494Isn't it just get a free kill: the button? you just hold triangle and release unless it gets harder later? so far its just a quick cheap shot to start a fight and kill a mook

>>517563408You do know theres a setting to change the button in the ps4 settings.

Playing hard mode with no DISHONOBURU shit is really fucking hard clearing out some of the camps. Legit like 10 dudes will surround you taking turns hacking at your back and shit when you try to pull any sort of offensive. Having no way to CC things without tools means you're basically just trying to perfect parry or perfect dodge shit to even get a chance to attack without eating shit for it.

Really wish I could edit is hair and facial hair. I want a pretty samurai goddamnit

>>517563563They start to feint and while it is still really easy, for people like me who have twitchy trigger fingers, sometimes I pull too early and take a buncha damage for it.

Just got to the second iland and the Ronin are fucking hard, much harder to time than the Mongols

Based. Only a fag would play stealth when you already do that in 99% of Western open world games

>a lot of people in this thread advocating for a lock on or a mini mapHow does it feel to be a brainlet that needs hand holding in a video game?

>>517554178>m-m-muh HONOR!!!!Dumb Nips think they slick. We all know the samurai were just government sanctioned bullies who rape and murder wherever they went, cheated when they could, and prefer ranged weapons.

>>517563547Pretty good unless you're a specs autist

>>517563618I thought it was intentional for them to make you eventually have to resort to ninja tactics due to difficulty spikes. Jin wants to be honorable but he's out of his league.

>>517564574I dont think thats it at all, japanese culture is so mainstream now with anime culture. If PS4 didnt have so many other open world games it would have had more hype though I admit hype for this game was softer. If this had launched in 2018 there would have been more hype, it reminds me of how Beyond Two Souls and Gran Turismo 6 were soft because of the PS4.

>>517564949I literally had to relocate my PS4 unit in the direct line of a fan just so it can have additional cooling. It sounded like it was catching fire.This game is running my poor old PS4 ragged, but moving it to a better cooling spot seems to have helped

>>517564574>far less people are interested in Japanese foreign cultureBullshit Japanese shit is more popular than ever, it's just that the normal-est normalfags like their taste of Japan safe, like a California roll. Ghost should have be that game since it's made by Westerners and is very westerner friendly but I think Sekiro and Niho already tired normalfags out. Funny enough Ghost was supposed to be the normalfag game of the three but it ended up appealing to everyone who wanted more Feudal Japan

>>517565470Jin was never spiritual before, now that his entire life is facing destruction he has faith, this is entirely normal.

>>517565473May as well toss Throne of Blood and Rashomon while you're at it.

>>517566023what, the license? or the allows?I took a peek a while back and noticed most states will allow it, just varying degrees of how to get a license.In my state it's literally a free license just have to apply for it. But I'm in no position to afford or accommodate a foxxo, wish I could though

>>517565473Play Way of the Samurai 1-3 and Bushido Blade 1/2

>>517565801If your PS4 is running very hot and sounds like a jet engine the thermal paste might need to be replaced. You can find tutorials on how to do it. Seems like a manufacturing error because my ps4 is quiet as a mouse but I've heard other peoples PS4's sounding like they are about to explode.

>>517566475Is the standoff kill animation always the same? Kinda wanna see different variations.

How do you get more poison darts?

Redpill me on this game.Is it really just an assassins creed clone? So theres towers? Useless collectibles?Is stealth reduced to just crouching in waist high grass?is it true that the enemies are basically blind?is the combat system bamham?

>>517565801>>517566258I replaced the thermal paste in mine and it didn't fix anything whatsoever, I'm not convinced it works

>>517562491if you press another button while parrying it wont work, the game heavily punishes button mashing and you're intended to use guerilla warfare so that you only really have to beat down one or two skilled opponents. Basically you're not supposed to just slap down the veteran warriors of the greatest military nation in pre-industrial history without some kind of plan, because this isn't Way of the Samurai and you're just some inexperienced kid not motherfucking miyamoto musashi

Is there something you obtain sticking to a single playstyle?

>>517566725yes to all of themi really wanted to like it and i was dying for a cool samurai game but its just so generic and boring

>>517566597Add Shigurui to that

>>517565773>If PS4 didnt have so many other open world gamesYeah but from what I've played so far Ghost is the most polished and well made open world time waster since Witcher 3. It's a gourmet burger to Asscreeds McDonalds

>>517554178You forgot always sheathing your sword manually after battles.

>>517566725No, no, and no. Exploration is heavily rewarded, there are no towers the only way to discover locations and activities is to go find them or hear rumors that mark an area on the map. The only way to reveal the map is traverse it.Yes, more or less. Stealth is about what you expect.No, they see you pretty quickly actually.Not at all, combat is great.

>>517567064How is it like BOTW? Is there manual platforming or is it the same "KEEP THE STICK HELD FORWARD TO DO 5 CARTWHEELS" shit?I've also heard it being an "RDR Clone" but how does that work? RDR is already close enough to Asscreed in gameplay except RDR has guns, so it seems more fitting to call it an asscreed clone.

>>517567169what about bowing when your vassals greet you?

>>517566725It's Spider-man with a genuinely well done Kurosawa-inspired Feudal Japanese aesthetic.

>>517566725What I'm feeling is that it's close to Assassin's Creed but it blows the shit out of Assassin's Creed in every conceivable way. At a certain point it's just a matter of genre, and I think if you're going to make a game of the style Ghost does it way better than its contemporaries.

>>517560367like Ghost Dog?

>>517566725>>517567064I also really want to know how the combat is. The only thing that is keeping me from buying the game is knowing if the combat is bamham or not. Some people say "its not bamham" but they said the same shit about Spiderman and that game was absolutely bamham, so now I have trust issues. I also watched one of those "Experts Swordsmen react to the game" videos and the combat animations look atrocious, there's barely any sword clashes and yet there's still sparks everywhere. Games with bad combat animations are boring

>>517562737Same brother, I nearly lost it when I saw that first>examine tracks

The game gives the impression that going stealthy is bad because muh Uncle. But isn't the point that the samurai have to adapt to this new enemy? I am assuming being a sneaky breaky nip doesn't actually change anything story wise.

>>517567406List the gameplay differences between Asscreed and RDR2 asides from the fact that in asscreed you fight mostly with with melee weapons.

>>517567224I'm not far but after the prologue it kind of just drops you out there and the world is filled with all this shit that you just collect and conquer to earn upgrades and at some point you're supposed to do plot related story shit. Except instead of a puzzle shrine you have a village or fort with mongolians or bandits or traitors or something and you have to kill the boss to get that skill point. There's also tons of "secret locations" like hot springs or bamboo sword training stands to increase individual stats without leveling.You also gotta collect tons of materials and basically klepto everything to improve your gear and increase arrow capacity or whatever.

>>517567618Oh shit you did, my bad. Should've known that's what that was.

>>517567169Is it honorable to play the flute over my enemies dead corpses?

Is it historically factual that samurai men have big ass like Jin?

>>517567878Yeah on hard I honestly don't see how you can do some missions without stealth. You get that cutscene randomly when you assassinate a guy and it made the impresison that doing assassinations ruins some kind of hidden Bushido meter that if you assassinate to many people other japs will start to dislike you. Or my head canon is all retarded.

>>517567594No. I'm pretty sure there was originally supposed to be some kind of "morality" system like inFamous where going samurai or ninja was a choice that affected your build and the story but they must have scrapped it at some point. The writing certainly still implies it at spots but nothing actually changes.

>tfw finally beat heavenly sword boss after dying about 40 times on hardBeen starting to get good at groupfighting now too. Fuck kunai and fuck assasinating people though

>>517568159Yes but there are fights where you are forced to use melee.

>>517568159Bows are insanely good.There's a famous archer armor that gives you more slow down, faster nocking, etc, plus your bow can be upgraded.

>>517566725>Is it really just an assassins creed clone? So theres towers? Useless collectibles?No Towers, there are good collectables and then there are basic ones that are just a model in the menu with a lore/history explanation. The good collectables are cosmetic customizations for your character. Points on the map are only revealed by getting close enough to them, or by talking to NPCs in town who will tell you a story about a weird thing they saw that corresponds to the map point, and it will be marked on your map as a ? until you get close to it.>stealth reduced to crouching in waist high grassBasically. You get a lot of fun gadgets and toys, but it boils down to crouch and stab. >enemies blind?The game is balanced in a way to incentivize you into using both stealth and combat instead of relying on one over the other. The story is also about how the main character is using both and struggling with how that clashes with his traditional beliefs. So the way it works, is enemies are blind as fuck and easy to stealth for the first few enemies, but the more enemies you stealth kill in a group, the more aware they become, until it basically becomes impossible to stealth anymore and they spot you or hear you from absolutely bullshit ranges, or turn around suddenly for no reason just to spot you. On the flip side, combat can be pretty challenging but also satisfying, in larger enemy camps, the number of enemies can be very overwhelming- so you are incentivized to use stealth to even the odds and because it is brain dead OP, until it stops becoming a valid tactic at about your 10th stealth kill or so. Then you fight your way through the rest.>combat bamhamNot at all, the only thing even remotely bamham about it is the lack of a hard lock on and how targeting is based on analogue stick direction at the time of the attack.

How is there not a single decent samurai movie on shitty netflix?

>>517568178I only use kunai when i'm fighting one guy and turn around and there's somehow 10-20 running at me.Also HOW THE FUCK can the ps4 run all of that.Mines is a year one 400g model and it doesn't even make a sound after playing the game for 10 hours.

>>517567528I'll explain combat. I'm just exploring area 1 to its fullest and havent unlocked later stuff.L1 to block. This blocks sword attacks, just hold it and youll block all sword attacks. Press L1 around the time as they are about to hit and youll parry, you can then counter hit.Press L1 perfectly timed and you perfect parry, this lets you counter for big damage and bonuses such as when you equip a charm that lets you heal for perfect parries.Some shieldmen attacks and all spear attacks are non blockable and unparrying by default. Press O to dodge these then counter attack.Square for light attack.Triangle for heavy. Holding heavy does a different attack than tapping. Unlock different things like Holding Triangle and then tapping after for an extra attack.Then theres a bow, and some throwables. That's the basic jist of it. It's not super complex, you unlock more stuff later but it's not gonna blow your mind. At least from what i've played so far. It's fairly simple and about timing. The enemy attack patterns vary so you dodge, block, parry, counter, in different orders for every fight, but that's all it is. It's entertaining but again, it's not gonna blow your mind with complexity.

>>517554774Not at all, it goes against his teachings but many "good" characters argue its necessary to abandon your code of honor if it means you can save lives. And despite that Jin still struggles with it immensely pondering the philosophy of both his uncle and other mastersModern westerners literally write pre-WW2 Japs better than they write themselves lmao we bombed these niggas autistic

games good and real pretty, my only complaint is the horrible lip syncing and okay story. Combat's fun on hard

>>517567805Naw man this is all on me, Shigurui is to good to get dishonored like that. Best thing the mangaka has ever made (even if it is an adaption of a much larger work) and should be required reading for everyone playing Ghost since it completely shits on Busido and the entire Samurai class just skip the Frogboy/Futa girl chapters they're pointless and fuck up the pacing

>>517567920There is no lock on, I agree that is annoying. Parry timing is kinda of strict. There is a block button, dodging, and unblockable attacks. You can wiff attacks. Enemies have posture, you have to break there guard with heavy attacks. I'd say the combat is hybrid of bamham and sekiro.

>>517557350I've played about ten hours of Tsushima and I think it deserves higher than 83. Really having fun with it. Don't sleep on TLOU2, though. Despite some people having a problem with the story the gameplay is really fun.

>>517568458Oh god those chapters take me by surprise every reread. Talk about out of left field.

>>517567846I really think they're just going to embarrass themselves if they put one out, especially if it's released too close to this. They best hope this doesn't become a recurring franchise.

>>517568482damn this is off a base? nice

>>517554774Khotan Khans scene in the intro literally explains this. The Samurai challenges the Mongols to Duer of Honoru and Kohtan just splashes the guy with booze and lights him on fire. Khotan mocks the Samurais adherence to tradition "sharpening the blade" while he learned their history and culture to use against him. The whole Point like the other user says is the Mongols are fighting smarter than the Gooks and they have to adapt.

>>517567920>character is "glued" to enemies, the game takes care of positioning the player for striking.To a point. If you are within a few steps from an opponent it will take care of positioning. At the same time, I have had several occasions where I just swing in the air right in front of an enemy because I was too far away.>theres a very generous time window to parry, which results in an instant counter that cancels whatever you were doing, even if you were in the middle of an attack.I'm not sure if you can parry mid attack animation, but the parry can be strict, and there are different levels of "parry". A well timed one will open up the opponent for an attack or two, while a frame perfect parry opens them up for a full combo, and with some upgrades, an instant kill on weaker enemies.>enemy selection is directionalThis game is 100% guilty of that, yes>no actual block buttonYou can block normally by holding down the button. Timing the press of the button is how you parry.>hits always have to connectNo, the game will correct your positioning slightly- if you are a step or two away from an enemy, the game will handle that for you. But I've still missed hitting foes plenty of times, even when relatively close.

>>517567920Stop lying user>no actual block button, you can only use the OP counter moveBlock/parry works like an easier version of Sekiro, hell they even borrowed the perilous red glow>hits ALWAYS have to connect, the game cannot deal with missed hits, if you press the attack button, your character WILL automatically target an enemy and fly towards him to attack himMore falsehoods Jin barely steps forward when you attack, I've whiffed more swings assuming he'd lunge

>>517567920The game's combat is incredibly hard. It's not a good hard either. It's trial and error hard. Basically after you do the initial hold triangle thing you're bombarded by multiple enemies. Some require you to press circle button to dodge their attacks. You have to attack quick attacking enemies all at the same time, while also dodging bow attacks. Attacks take away an insane amount of health also. I'm sure someone could git gud at it, but it's too much trial and error. Every combat encounter ends up with you trying to back up from some guy till you get cornered and ganked by four guys. There is no certainty that you won't get hit at any time.
