Sekiro tames the Blazing Bull, pumps up that arm

A wee Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice patch crept in overnight, coming to fix a few bugs and also rejiggle balance a bit. One early-game roadblock boss for some, the Blazing Bull, is a touch weaker. Certain roboarm weapons are improved with new Spirit Emblem casting costs too, though some skills are toned down. If you've got stuck in a ninjarut, relying on the same ol'…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice tool lets you slow it down or speed it up

If you're grooving the vibe of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice but think you might enjoy it more at a slower pace, hey, you can do that. The game may not have difficulty options but a player-made tweaktool does grant the ability to futz with the speed of not only the whole game but your fella specifically too. If you want to stretch time just a…

Of course someone has already beaten Sekiro in under an hour

As a fan of giving games with stupid names even sillier ones, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has me stumped. Stumped in name and stumped in-game, where a big drunk man with a sword and poison grog keeps slamming me into the ground until I've got a good idea how Loki felt in that scene from The Avengers. Speedrunner "Danflesh111" is not stumped. He's beaten the…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice modders already expanding display and control options

It didn't take long for tinkerers to roll up their sleeves, dive into the technoguts of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, and reemerge saying "Oh dear oh dear, what cowboy did that?" Modders have already rejigged the guts to allow wider field-of-view options, change the framerate cap, and display correct button prompts for PlayStation controllers. 'For funsies' mods are also rolling, like replacing 3D models and…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice sneakily launches in the dead of night

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is out now, almost a full day earlier than expected - fitting that FromSoftware's ninja soulsborne would stage a daring night-time infiltration. Earlier this evening, I checked Steam and it stated there was another twenty hours until the game unlocked; a cunning ninja ruse. I've just had my first ninja-run around Sengoku-era Japan, and can confirm that it looks great and…

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice explains the tools of the ninja trade in new trailer

Some days, I lament that FromSoftware -- once known for Otogi and Armored Core -- are now (near) exclusively the Soulsborne studio. Then I watch today's near-launch 'overview' trailer for Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice and suddenly don't feel so sad, because it looks fab. It's a more agile and aggressive game than even Bloodborne or the similarly Sengoku-era styled Nioh, blending the familiar high tension…

Samurai Souls successor Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice swings onto PC on March 22nd

FromSoftware's next third-person hack n' slasher - Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice - now has a release date for PC. Due to launch on March 22nd, 2019, Sekiro looks like a blend of some of the long-running Japanese studio's greatest hits. It's hard not to see equal inspiration taken from both Bloodborne and the Tenchu series in there, complete with grappling hooks, rooftop navigation and lots…
