Well, I guess Souls-like games are not for me.

Maybe I'm just an old-ass dude with terrible reflexes and no patience for learning a complex battle system, but after an hour or so of creating a character, doing the tutorial, and getting to the first big monster, I am tired of dying.

This game looks interesting with wonderful graphics, pretty music, and a mystical and mythical story to enjoy. (Shout out to the sword from the NES game Demon Sword [or probably Japanese mythology, I assume...]). However, the gameplay takes all the parts I hate about fighting games, like having to press two buttons at once to do a thing, and combines it with unforgiving enemies right off the bat. Or, at least unforgiving enemies for me. I guess "git gud" right? But is that fun? I don' t have anything to prove about being good a pressing buttons at the right time, so without access to something compelling, I'm gonna give up on this one, friends.

Oh, the internet is telling me I'm supposed to just avoid the first big monster. Somehow, that makes me even more mad at this game. You kids have fun.

If you like this page, you can buy me a coffee.
