    The port seems fine so far. the plot is fucking stupid but gameplay seems solid.
    Please don't teach me what to do with my pc.

    I forgot there was a thread on this, neat

    I wasn't even aware there was a plot tbh, it feels like a stereotypical Japanese b-movie.

    Gameplay is excellent, stance shifting mid combo with the stamina reset etc is pretty swish, especially when you start getting some of the combo/skill abilities.

    Kinda wish it was harder, on the 6th mission and nothing (other than the first "real" boss) has challenged me particularly

    Runs a bit shit for how it looks tbh.

    But yeah it's fine. As for people wanting mouse support... Fair, but meh. Games like these, with mouse and keyboard, really?

    I haven't had any issues with FPS, but I have 1070 so i'd be surprised if I did.

    Personally I'm upset that I can't play Forza with my flightstick but what can you do?

    Yeah with how it looks it should run no problem on a 1060 but I have to knock shadows down to medium (rest maxed) to get steady 60 heh.

    Still, glorious glorious game. A bit too much loot though imo, getting "shitty loot fatigue". Feels like Diablo. Thankfully there is plenty of interesting stuff dropping inbetween too.

    Game also explains itself pretty badly when it comes to weapon and armor stats so wiki hooray.

    Overall it's right up my alley and I'm loving it tho heh.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Adams_(sailor)

    "Loosely" based on this guy/the time period, but they made him Irish for some reason, I assume Japs like Irish accents?

    Yeah the game absolutely doesn't tell you shit about the combat system

    High/Med/Low stance use more stamina as you go from Low-High but does more damage

    Get the Ki-Pulse on dodge/stance shift skills ASAP, they'll be your bread and butter

    Parry as the attack comes in, not as it lands, it has a weird windup time that differs for each weapon

    Oh and don't fight Revenants with 2Katanas, for some reason the AI for those is the only one that actually uses mechanics properly

    I decided I'll be what I have been in final fantasy forever and take a spear. It's hilarious and I love it. So much cheese possibility and all 3 stances have their uses.

    Can't for the life of me decide on a second. Been leaning kusarigama as I can easily build power for both at the same time.

    Don't worry too much about specs for the first playthrough, you can buy/loot an item that fully resets your stats and the game shits money on you towards the end

    Eh how is it stupid. It's cheesy and all but it works. Countries are at war, special powers found, want to hoard said powers, they fight, wherever there was fighting monsters appear. Mix in copious amounts of historical references and it's a good plot for such a game tbfh.
    Speaking of which, the romanticized historical references and the super thick layer of mythology are spot on. It's good times.

    Ginchiyo did nothing wrong

    there's an easter egg if you go in the hot spring during her escort mission (although, really she's the one escorting you since she hits like a truck and can't die, I farmed every revenant in the level with her)

    Kinda annoying how Warrior of West gives a lightning set bonus but Raikiri isn't a set item and the actual set sword does water damage instead.

    Random Irish rescued form tower of London my ghostly spirit, loses magic powers to the first 3vil dude who comes along - becomes a great explorer for a cutscene, meets Hatori Hanzo and saves the world.
    Just hoping there is and moping somewhere along the lines to complete the bingo card.
    No worse than 95% of computer plots really. Still, the entire games industry gets by on lazy writing and as you say - it does the job.
    The neat historical tie-ins and scenery make it palatable and the gameplay so far is pretty solid so who cares ?

    To be fair he's not random, the spirit doesn't randomly appear to a dude just happening to be in prison. they just loved dark souls so much they had to do a sameish intro I guess lul. He's the pirate who found the shit in the first place.

    Also he doesn't really have magic powers since a guardian spirit by itself isn't particularly spooky (see: fucking half the people he meets in nippon have one)

    Like the Souls games, the basic "sword brand sword" works for just about everything, but isn't as fun as the other options
