Ghost of Tsushima

Recommended Posts

Finally done with it. It was indeed as cool as it was in my head before release. Despite its minor annoyances and flaws, I love this game. Enjoyable story, catchy score and very cool combat. The combat is so addictive, I forgot that there is a stealth mode which can be an option :rofl: and remember about it only when the game force you to go silent.

 

Sucker punch can pull its weight among other SIE studios now. Its technically very impressive title. 5 secs loading time on a launch PS4 and that too a game that looks this good. I think I will go for plat as I want to get more of that combat now.

 

Having said that, that Sony has knocked it out the park this Gen. All the recent exclusives I have played are really enjoyable and very well made.

Crazy that it beat Horizon.


well you also have to take the ps4 install base into consideration. Install base now would almost be double than it was in 2017.

Actual comparison would be copies sold per 1,00,000 or a million consoles

Install base doesn't really make a difference beyond certain point. We've seen this last gen when KZ3 sold half of KZ2 and GT6 sold almost 1/3rd of GT5. Days Gone, Death Stranding, Dreams etc none of them touched Horizon's record on big install base.

Koga ko maar diya :gunsmilie: Stone stance did it for me. Good stuff these stances, varies the play quite a bit.How did you guys clear this? Did you have more moves here than i had? Also how do i do the heavenly strike now? I press triangle square but nothing happens. 

 

 

 

Played around 3 hours today in which did horse riding for a good 30 mins. Found a new area Kishi grasslands it was i think. So soothing :wub:

 

The Birds and foxes are a huge distraction. 99% of the time i follow them :P Also draw distances are quite epic. The new area i found today is because i saw a red tree so afar that i wanted to check it out and then time just flew by going further and futher. 

 

In between you get these small groups of enemies that is super fun to kill and grab some supplies. 

 

Still only ticked 1 objective in Act 1 :P

Open world of horizon is very boring. 


Just completed the game and agree on this, it's just avoiding or killing robots and admiring the scenary, the dialogs in horizon are poorly written for not fero story, they try to make aloy as spidey with poor comic relief, if it wasen't for aloy and errand the game would have been dead. Also sometimes in conversations animations and dialogs don't even feel like they are related to the subject at hand.

It's a Japanese open world game with western action combat & the developers throwing in the love and care to represent japan very well, I'm so glad the audience understood and replied with abundance of love for this new IP.

Hold Triangle wait for them to strike first then release triangle. When the second person is attacking you; quickly press Square or Triangle. 

 

 

Edit : Triangle + Circle for Heavenly Strike; above One standoff streak.

I think you confused heavenly strike with standoff streak :P

I know they probably don’t compare but is the combat as good as sekiro ? I just platinumed sekiro and I loved every single second of the combat. I’m hoping this is equally fun. (Other souls borne games with their all gothic look really don’t interest me)

Sekiro’s combat is on a different level but GoT’s combat system stands well on its own. There are upgradeable stances to take care of different enemies, There is a deflection and evasion skill tree, you have different charms and outfits that effects the combat, then there are different ghost skills and items that either help you stealth killing enemies better or help take out large group of enemies better.  
 

The combat keeps opening up and gets better as you keep playing.

Sekiro combat at it's core is just deflect, mikiri and jump when some idiot tries a low swing.

And then press the insta kill button when their posture is broken.

You don't even actually need to cut them with your sword if your deflect game is strong. :lol:

 

 

In this game meanwhile most enemies get one shotted with perfect deflect, in sekiro i think it was only for the 2rs grunt enemies, once the Interior Ministry's red bois roll in that never happens
