    Will you be streaming this again tonight?

    Fancy watching someone play it who knows what they're doing as I'm still very undecided about it.
    Yeah, I can do. Although I stopped playing last night as I got a little stuck on a boss battle, so that's where I'll be starting off.

    Yeah actually I've started listening to a load of the codec conversations and think I was a bit hasty...it's when he tries to channel Solid Snake's gruffness that it falls apart I think!

    Lmao I've yet to meet any boss yet but can imagine what they are like. Blade wolf took the piss out of me on my 1st attempt.

    Sundowner was pretty easy, all you need to remember is fuck trying to cut through his shield with the flaky blade mode controls, just do offensive defensive round to his back when ever he drops those shields.

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    I thought Monsoon was the hardest of the standard bosses by far.
    And I kept ballsing up the final boss, but only because my accurate slicing wasn't up to scratch.

    The only thing I'm struggling with are the guys with rocket launchers. They're tossers and make my already maddening attempts to collect left hands even more annoying.

    Other than that though this game is fucking great. The boss fights are even enjoyable!

    FFS is there no way to drop the difficulty down mid-game? Can't be arsed starting over.

    Blocking just doesn't seem to work consistently at all.

    Blocking is plenty consistent. The timing can be a bitch though :)

    How is it supposed to work? Sometimes I press the button and he blocks, other times nothing happens. I'm meant to push the stick in the direction of the enemy and press light attack, yeah?

    Yep, that's how to do it. Works consistently for me, it just needs to be timed right.

    The enemies tend to telegraph attacks with either a flash of light or orange glow. Block after that and you'll plain block, but if you time it just before it lands you'll parry into a counter and can sometimes instantly zanwhotsit.

    I'm not even trying to get the timing right for a parry, just to get the blocking right - can only assume I'm getting the direction wrong half the time (doesn't help with the camera all over the place I guess) as sometimes Raiden will do the blocking animation, and other times just a light attack.

    I never found sundowner that bad. Only took me two attempts and he's the only boss to have killed me. Slicing through his shield was fine.

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

    Last boss is just total bullshit. Cheap fucking cunt.

    Ans I echo thee sentiment that blocking is no where near as consistant as it should be.

    Right after the tenth time of getting one hit killed by a rock that's impossible to slice because of how shitty the balde mode controls are I'm done. I don't care how this utter bollocks plot ends, and it certaintly won't be worth this effort.

    Just done the last boss. One hour and five minutes, and a soar throat. Still an amazing game though. As far as I'm concerned it's Godhand 2.

    The problem with blocking/parrying come from it using the same button as attack, and the camera being shit. Either a parry button or a wide,fixed camera (God of War style) would've been better imo.

    Remember that if you want to block you need to do the motion from neutral on the stick. The timing window could not be any more generous without letting you block before the enemy attacks - if you're having trouble, do the block motion every time you attack and you'll defend "by accident". The invulnerability window on the evade is very long as well. Literally the only problem I had with him was he turned green when up against a wall once so I had to fail Blade Mode once and take the damage before being able to get him away from the wall.

    edit: Remember to lock on as well. It is a lot easier when the camera isn't veering around all over the place.

    That and bouncing from fire wall to fire wall were the big stinkers for me too. You don't have to be perfect with the rock. I think 3 of the 4 squares will still cut it.

    You can Blade Mode him when he's green? Knowing that would've helped. :s

    Also the fact the games is now fucked for me, no way to drop the difficulty without starting over, can't restart the level to at least try and get there with more than zero health gels.

    To be fair I thought the last third of the game was pretty poor up to that point anyway. Very disappointing.

    @kinky_mong

    Not sure if this'll perk you up or annoy you more but after you slice the rock. open it drops a bunch of health packs.
