Wish I saw that rorie tweet before signing up. Hopefully it'll get fixed in a little bit.

Edit- Seems it's working fine now, but it magically made my avatar turn into the default one in chat. Wonder if that's a common issue or not.

@chinaski: Yes, rerolling until you get that combo a lot of the time

The wedding ring bit is the part that broke me. Thank you for writing this Patrick.

Thought I might drop this issue here, but it's a bit annoying that the playlist thing keeps popping up when I fullscreen a video. I have a tendency to just move my cursor off to the right so the playlist button remains on the screen because I assume it takes it as I'm hovering over the video. If I move it to the bottom it goes away for some weird amount of time, 30 seconds to a minute, and then pops back up. I can then move the cursor off and then back down again to make it go away, but it's not great.

Edit: Can't for the life of me even queue a video. Just nothing happens. Every time I try to filter a new thing it also seems to take up to a minute to show what I wanted.

Since you got better and fixed a few problems the only thing I could suggest is for doofs that are firing guns/rockets at you, ninja run at them, hit Y, and usually that will cause them to toss up for an easy, instant zandatsu. Also the dodge makes you invincible for so long that you can just dodge most unblockables. I found two dodges usually led to me dodging the entire unblockable from things like Mastiffs. Sometimes they'd freak out and grab me still but not usually.

@egg: Platinum Games usually don't just throw in a bunch of dumb combos for no reason. They usually all have a purpose and use for particular enemies or what have you. I'm pulling this off the top of my head but X pause X being a launcher and then you have another launcher which would be useful to get in more hits and launch off a combo. Or you have multiple stingers for you to get in close to the enemy quickly based off different situations. You know they've thought it through when they even have an achievement for getting all S ranks on the hardest difficulty which requires you being an expert and utilizing every combo for each encounter correctly or semi cheezing it by just taking no damage for an encounter for an easy point boost which is also crazy.

But yeah, overall after you get comfortable with it and glance at the combo list every now and again you'll get used to some combos at least. I never dipped into the weird ones like throat slash or ones that looked too hard to perform without practicing to know it's use and how much time it took to perform them. Also you might want to lay off polearm for now. It's very friendly with it's area damage, but I found it pretty weak compared to the regular unequiped Y moves. Also not spoiling exactly but the other side weapons you get later don't exactly have as much combo variety as the polearm from what I remember. Or at least aren't as daunting with their combo lists.

That's pretty fucking cool which also gave me an idea that I just wanted to write down so hopefully someone steals it and makes something amazing. A reworked version of "The Emperor Napoleon in His Study at the Tuileries" but with Ryan would be kind of amazing.

A steam copy I assume? I've always wanted to fuck around with this because of the weird following this game kind of gets.
