Rorie, for the love of god, just stop moving, hold block, and actually look at what the enemy is doing.

I promise, when you're not splitting your attention trying to run around and dodge and mash attack constantly it's pretty easy to figure out what different attacks look like. You don't even really need to know the timing, you can mash block and figure it out that way. Worst case is you end up blocking the attack instead of parrying, which is a thousand times better than getting hit because you committed to a dodge or a jump, both of which leave you super, super vulnerable.

Just sit right in front of them and hold block for a while and figure out what they do, then, when you feel like you have a good idea of the timing of their attacks, start trying to guess when to parry. With that strategy, especially with the early game enemies, worst case is you have to back off for a bit and recover your posture. But even then, the fastest way to recover posture is by holding block. It's almost like they designed it that way for a reason!

By all means, of course, make it easier if that's more fun for you but holy hell, I just had to get this off my chest because no one was actually helping him. The slowmo stuff actually seems like a good way to learn an enemy's moves if you're having trouble... but it won't help if you still aren't actually watching what they're doing.

Damn, Outer Wilds has a real shot to take home the GOTY, huh? I'm making my way through it, but even now I can totally see what makes this game so special, and I don't think I'm even close to the ending everyone's raved about so much.

Really looking forward to the deliberations!

ALSO: This fucking guy used a picture of himself with Hideo Kojima as the profile pic for his top 10 list. Dan is the biggest troll ever and I love it.

Played through this last night and absolutely fucking loved it. It's so unique but still gives off those familiar, friendly Katamari vibes I love so much. It's such a warm, goofy blanket. A warm, weird, poop-filled blanket that explodes sometimes for fun.

Man, the back half of Yu Yu Hakusho is one of the biggest bummers of any anime I've ever experienced. Considering the last season non-canonical is probably the best way to go honestly. It's not even that it's completely terrible, but everything through the Dark Tournament was so good!

Also I've watched this show all the way through probably like 3 times in my life and I don't recognize half the characters in this game. Are they all just from the last definitely non-canonical season that I've erased from my mind?

Fuck, I'm past the 4th boss in this game so I thought I'd be safe from seeing anything I hadn't gotten to yet, but somehow I completely missed whatever area Ben's in.

The ways the paths in this game branch is so much harder to follow than the other games for me, I feel like I'm constantly having to go back and comb through each area for alternate routes because I'm not used to, y'know, being able to jump in these games.

I love how excited Ben gets when he learns there's no stamina meter as if that means you won't have to play at the pace FromSoft games expect from you anyway.

A big turning point for me in these games was realizing that, yes, the stamina meter is partly there to limit the number of actions you can take, but it's also meant to help teach you that you need to slow down and learn the attack patterns of enemies and not just spam attacks hoping you kill them before they take the next swing. And that definitely seems like the way you need to play this game too, even without a stamina bar.
