    Was I the only one who didn't much of the demo?

    I mean it was fun and perfectly playable, but I just felt I'd seen it all before and wasn't overly impressed with any element of it.

    I've never played a game with that kind of sword/cutting mechanic before.

    I also think that the parry system will set it apart from similar games a bit.

    Edit - I see the customer backlash against this has begun over on Play.com

    Yes, it's not a typical Metal Gear game; at what point in the game's 4 year development cycle did it ever purport to be one? Sigh.

    Anyone received a ShopTo order yet? My account on the site says it was dispatched yesterday (though not had an email dispatch confirmation through) but not received it thus far.

    I did this recently. Watching Youtube videos has tempted me to go download the demo again and play through it for the 3rd time. It definitely looks good from the videos but I can't say i thought much of it during my initial playthrough. That could change

    It would appear we occupy the same boat.

    Says mine was dispatched yesterday too although I didn't get any emails. Won't know if it arrived until I get home tonight.

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Got my dispatch email about an hour ago. So much for before release day. Why would they update my order status to dispatched 2 days before actually doing it?

    @Zomoniac

    Got my text and email today at half 11 saying dispatched but it then arrived at 12 so you should be alright mate.

    They also sent me a dispatch text and email for Littlebigplanet Vita today, which arrived in the post over a week ago so think they're just having some problems!

    I also got my copy today. I've really enjoyed what I've played. Think i've just done the Prologue and the first "proper" mission so far.

    Very odd design decision to make Raiden look like he's got AIDS.

    Played the prologue and the first two levels. Really enjoying it so far.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    It did turn up today after all. Is it me or is it insanely difficult? Only on normal and this dog thing is destroying me. Not helped by the camera constantly doing its own thing even when my thumb is nowhere near the right stick, and too often when I go to parry he just attacks instead (yes I'm doing it at the right time).

    You need to use the lock on button. All of his attacks can be parried, I took him out without a single hit on my second playthrough.

    Edit:and yeah it is pretty damn hard in places and it has quite the learning curve.

    There's a lock on button?! Didn't see that in the tutorial. I know sometimes if you parry you get a super slow-mo slice-a-thon but so far just had that with one soldier, never this thing. So far I'm just standing back and parrying, about one time in six it lands close enough for me to do some damage, and getting some in. The main problems arise when it does that bounce around then pounce with the tail move, which I can't seem to parry, all I can do is sprint away, at which point the camera starts rotating at random, I have no idea where it is, it's then just chance.

    Best I've done so far is past the round of soldiers and the biped thing and got it down to about 12% but usually don't even get that far. The most annoying thing is when it lands a hit that brings up the left stick QTE, then lands another attack before the QTE even finishes, and gets stuck in that loop. In one fight it got my health from 100% to dead without me ever getting out of the QTE loop. So how do I lock on? That would help!

    Yeah what is lock on? First I've heard about it, took me ages to beat that cheating boss.

    Lock on is RB, the game hasn't told you about it by the time you get to Blade Wolf...

    The amount of codec conversations is insane, I feel compelled to listen to them all but at this rate the game is going to be 99% codec to 1% fighting.

    Got it earlier today, finished normal mode in under 5 hours. That was one of the craziest fucking end fights I've ever seen in my entire gaming life. And I've had a long gaming life. Not gonna spoil anything, no worries :p

    @anthonypappa Those mean that you created an opening to use the slice mechanic. So as soon as you see it press L1 and slice em up if you need to. Also, all enemies telegraph their moves by flashing red or by going into a pretty lavish animation.

    I'm playing on hard but I flew through the demo level whereas I found that annoyingly difficult a few weeks back.

    But then the full game tutorial is a lot better and actually explains how to parry...
