You guys should try the super boss in Octopath. For every attempt, you first have to beat the eight boss long boss rush of one boss from each character’s story.

Thanks for the suggestion.

I don't think I will.

I've played the 2nd one, and every time you die you lose part of your max health. You can restore it with an effigy, but they are limited.

I didn't know that... Doesn't happen in 3.

Encounter finder. ...It does basically exactly what it says it does. Shows you every single aggro-able encounter in all of Kamurocho while you have it equipped.

Wait... you mean I can't pick fights with random passersby?

You absolutely can! Just not every single one of them.

...and also, they DEFINITELY start the fights because Kiryu is an honourable soul. And has never killed anyone ever. Same goes with Majima! It's self-defence, I promise.

I just gave up and copied someone’s exact team from the internet.

This kinda feels like the obligatory disclaimer on prescriptions that, despite the myriad side effects they have, they've technically never killed anyone.

Aw... But I wanted to beat up old ladies!

I'm looking forward to seeing all these dumb memes in action.

The combat ain't really clickin' with me either, so that doesn't help.

Yeah, Dark Souls 1 has the clunkiest combat of the series.

To that tin can with the large horn-club thing in the undead bastion. ...I think that's what it's called, at least. I was just trying to figure out how parrying worked, 'cause that tin can bloke is a veritable record player with how much he can spin, so I feel like counters are a better bet against 'im.

Do you mean Havel?

You don't have to fight him yet (or ever, but it makes things easier to traverse latter on if you do...), fairly certain you can head up instead of down to progress.

Spoiler

Although seeing what is up there is a boss that might not actually improve your situation much.

That is only really in DS2 (and I think Deomons Souls...its been a long time since I played that so I don't quite remember how it works...), although DS3 has embers that can increase max health, but you lose that bonus after you die.

I knew I couldn't be the only one who loves games where you can beat random people up for no greater reason than one's repressed human desire for carnage.

No, no, no! The bullets and explosions were rubber, don't you see?

Yes, but he killed me while I had 10k souls on me, so I am going back for vengeance.

Deomons Souls...

I watched a PS5 playthrough of it, and I think how it works there is you have a solid, normal form, and a ghost form which has less health.

Also, Demon's Souls looks pretty neat. Hope it's not always PS5 exclusive.

Always having to returning to the boss room is also not too great. Having to beat all the scrubs again every time you die... even in classic games, you got several tries at the boss if you did a good enough job with the level to preserve your extra lives. Which also kept you motivated to keep doing your best in the level.
But here, having to keep repeating that process with the expectation that you will probably just die in 10 seconds at the boss again gets old really fast. And I mean, it's not like you can just steam roll those grunts either. You still take a shitton of damage of them, so you gotta do things properly.

Fun fact: I'm just now finding out what Palps says between his "good"s here. Seriously, I didn't understand what he said. It sounded like "good, I've gotta be kidding good" to me...

No, Kiryu has just never killed anyone, so he must have used rubber bullets and explosions!

Well bad news there, Sony actually got that licence on lock, it's part of why Dark Souls was made into a separate series.

Course, the fact it took this long for anything to be done with Demon's Souls says a bunch about what From Software have been up to.

(It's original's also the only one I have..... I sucked at it)

Rubber explosions sound too ridiculous to be real.

But if they weren't he'd have to have killed so they must be!

You don't get it. Kiryu is such a kind soul that has never killed anyone, that he holds back when he explodes things. That's why people survive. He holds back.

For Dayni, it's just Tuesday.

Sometimes I do it based on what I'm playing, sometimes just on my mood.

Managing to hold back with non-fatal explosions, truly the power of the Yakuza for you.

......It's been a year since your Berwick LP unveiled the current pfp. I mean, aside from the imposter (Who I'm still suspect of), what else?

Castlevania's new season's the finale? Man, I need to get on that because it's actually out now.
