    I have 1 gourd upgrade along with the skill that gives you more health on drinking it. Also grabbed both stealth upgrades, and a few other random ones. I'd like the Mirikiri damage boost, but I think that'd take quite a while to unlock. Nothing else left but to fight the Ogre, The Drunkard, or (if I can get past the ogre without fighting him) those other minibosses in the castle.

    I wasn't planning on getting this game but I do love me a challenge.

    Oh yeah, there's no reason not to grind a little for skills. And money to buy items, for that matter. Items are extremely helpful in this game so far, IMO

    Finished the Ogre and another General. Saw the horse boss and bailed for now. He should be doable, but I should probably push up to Jozou and see if there is anything worth getting before taking him on.

    Managed to kill the Shinobi hunter and the Longswordsman. Noped out of the Jozuo and Horse General fights, but have the save points right before them. Have the key from *** and ran past that terrifying headless fuck to get to the bell. Didn't ring it yet, though. Will save that for grinding for components. I'll probably try the horse boss first, Killing Jozuo only unlocks Butterfly Lady, and honestly fuck her. I'll do her once I have a few more health upgrades and the unblockable shuriken.

    I cheesed that purple robed guy so bad. Just ran in circles, grabbed the raven feather prosthetic, dropped aggro and knifed him in the back. He was all over the fucking place.

    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    He reeeeeally hates it when you makiri counter his kick (the thrusting one). My roommate just ran into the temple, took the feather, fled the scene, and then came back and killed him with the prosthetic he was guarding.

    That fucker respawns. I was farming the area and tried to fight him fair. Whooped my ass so I ran for it.

    Beat Horse boss, he wasn't too bad at all. That bull is going to be a fucking problem, though. Fighting the camera just as much as you are him.

It would be bad for my health to attempt to beat this game.

    I agree with this review 100%. You INSTANTLY see how fucked you are. I am not an above average skill gamer, just decent. There's just no way I have the patience for what Sekiro is going to ask of me.
    "Thus you are left facing enormously challenging enemies, losing XP and currency (almost) every time you die, unable to summon help or grind to improve stats (though you can to earn more skills . . .) carving your way through a demonic version of Sengoku Japan. All you have is your skill and your wits.

    It's a sublime distillation of everything that makes the Souls games so amazing, but it truly is more challenging than any of those games by a very long mile. I am not exaggerating here. I think Sekiro may be one of the very best games ever made, but it is not going to be for everyone. I still recommend that everyone gives it a shot. It takes patience but it's just such a well-crafted action game, I've never played anything quite like it."

    Yeah, fuck that. I literally blew through three controllers on DS3... brilliant game but it did bad things to my mental state. I think I'll try the new Yoshi game on Switch instead...
