seems like most people would rather complain that there's no easy mode

I have a feeling I'll be stuck on the final boss for a while.... idk

Demon of Hatred is a cool fight and feels like a weird homage to the Souls games. The idea of deflecting and posture breaking is completely out the window in this fight - you just have to deplete his health instead and attempting to deflect most of his moves is a bad idea. I see a lot of people online complaining about him being a shitty boss because of this. I don't mind that this one is unique, I guess. But I can see where the complaints are coming from. Especially because he would be way easier if you had Souls i-frame mechanics (jumps and dodges in this game do have i-frames, but barely any, and enemy moves track much better).

Finished this game. Final boss is really cool but not as cinematic as I was hoping I guess. Finished all the bosses and minibosses, too. Aside from the ones you can only fight in the Shura ending, of course. As far as I can tell I did basically everything I can do in one playthrough, aside from pointless grinding to unlock more skills, or farming materials for my last few upgrades which is also pointless because I can simply get said materials and skill points easily in NG+.

Shura ending will be done on the second playthrough (but I'll savescum back to before it to play the rest of the normal game on NG+ as well).

Anyway this game fuckin rules, I loved it from start to finish.

sounds great cant wait to play it!

Sorry not sorry, but the Demon ain't worth my time right now.

I mean I don't think anyone expects you to beat him, or an apology for not doing so lol

True. Tbh, I'm not bothering with him unless I fully plan on getting a Platinum

Samus Aran

personally i'm just going for said platinum already, i'm in ng+ already

Samus Aran

man i love just blowing through these games in ng+ lol, it's crazy how easy they become once you're stronger and you already know how to fight every boss

haven't died at all to a single boss in ng+ yet and i'm already past the guardian ape wrench;

Samus Aran

well, finished my ng+ run

there are quite a few late-game minibosses i didn't bother with in ng+ simply because they no longer drop anything worthwhile, and i don't think i'm gonna bother with demon of hatred either really. i actually only have one thing left to do to platinum this game: grind for exp. for a long time.

Samus Aran

As a whole NG+ was a lot easier. Already knowing all the boss patterns and having my attack power up pretty high and already having all the prayer beads definitely helps lol.

I still managed to to die once to the false Corrupted Monk (I blame trying to play while distracted lol), and several times to the final boss.

Also, this time I did the Shura ending, tho I savesscummed and went back before the choice after getting the Shura-related trophies. The new boss in this ending is very similar to the final normal boss, but considerably easier imo. Took a few tries.
