Steam Charts: Oh So This Is A Thing Edition

Haha, that was funny last week wasn't it! Remember how we did that whole bit where I had left RPS, but then I was still stuck writing Steam Charts? Heh, they do some good goofs at this site. Anyway, let's... [looks straight into camera]

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 gourd seeds – gourd seed locations, upgrading the healing gourd

That healing gourd in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice initially doesn't heal for much does it? Well you can upgrade your gourd by finding seeds in the world. On top of that, Sekiro also has a couple of different gourds that can help with certain status ailments. [block id="663105" title="Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice guide blurb"] Another coveted collectable that's purchased from merchants are the mask pieces.…

Overthinking Games: an armful of surprises in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

While I was playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, I thought out loud, “Man, do I have a lot of questions about surgery in feudal Japan.” Less about how you operate on a man so that he wakes up and suddenly finds himself with a prosthetic, having remained peacefully unconscious throughout the entire procedure, and more about how feasible the shinobi prosthetic in Sekiro really is.…

Sekiro True Corrupted Monk – how to defeat all three phases

If you didn't side with Great Shinobi Owl, breaking the ninja code in the pivotal choice moment in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, then the next area you unlock after defeating him is the beautiful Fountainhead Palace. But wait, who's this that's come to greet us at the door. Why it's that pesky monk from Mibu Village again, only this time she seems, real? Turns out…

Sekiro Corrupted Monk – how to defeat her apparition

You've made your way through Mibu Village in Sekiro; Shadows Die Twice, and it's clear that there is something very wrong with the townsfolk. They almost seem zombie-like and seem to be protecting something of incredible value. Like the monkeys before, one of their own is the last line of defence, which fades into view as you approach a cave. This Corrupted Monk's apparition has…

Sekiro Demon of Hatred – finding and defeating a hidden boss

Some may find that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was missing a large flaming beast that can one-shot kill players without a second thought. That sounds like an appropriately Souls-like boss doesn't it? Well if you are one of those who missed those kinds of despair-filled fights, don't worry; there's a boss fight that might just be for you. [block id="663105" title="Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice guide…

Sekiro Guardian Ape – how to defeat it twice

During your search for a flower for Lord Kuro in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, you'll venture into a forest that is populated with monkeys. A much larger ape sits in a lake, guarding the flower, and minding his own business. As soon as you approach, it suddenly becomes clear that this feral beast really doesn't want you there and will use any means to get…

All its taken is entirely leaving my job in four days time to end this purgatory. The only decision left is to whom I shall pass this vexation. That, and how to avoid mentioning the actual games for one more…

The 400-year-old shinobi manuals that definitely inspired Sekiro’s prosthetic tools

Ninjas love scrolls. It’s just a ninja thing, don’t ask. They refuse to read anything that hasn’t first been rolled up into scroll form so they can unroll it again and dramatically ponder its contents. Luckily for us, they left a few of these scrolls behind. In the interest of important ninja science, I took a look at some translations of these aged texts, such…

Sekiro Headless – using Divine Confetti, how to defeat the Underwater terror

In the previous guide, I made you backtrack slightly from the Lone Shadow Swordsman to just a little after the Chained Ogre fight. You would have ventured onward past the gigantic snake for that forced stealth section, but there's another direction where there's an ominous sign. According to the locals, normal weapons weren't able to quell a monster in the caves. Delving into the caves,…

Sekiro Isshin the Sword Saint – how to finish off the final boss

So long as you didn't succumb to the temptation of the Owl's offer, your final test in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is none other than Isshin in his most powerful form. Armed with the second Mortal Blade, as well as a big spear and the elements, you'll have to overcome not only his grandson, but also his full three life stocks. This fight will truly test…

Sekiro Genichiro Ashina – how to defeat him, countering his lightning attack

After scratching and clawing your way through Sekiro's Ashina Castle, all that stands between saving your lord is the lovely chap who casually chopped off your arm. As the first real test of skill in the game, you'll need to defeat him the old-fashioned way of attacking him when he leaves an opening, and then dealing with his lightning attacks. It's going to be rough,…

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.

Sekiro skill points – where to farm experience and money

Experience is primarily used to unlock new skills in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. You'll want as much of it as possible and occasionally that involves going on a farming expedition. But where are the best places to go experience farming, and do some have added benefits? Here, we'll be going over some of our favourite spots.

Sekiro Gyoubu Oniwa – how to defeat him

As the first "boss" in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, Gyoubu Masataka Oniwa makes quite the entrance into this gladiatorial arena, with bodies strewn all about the place. Bounding up to you aboard his massive steed and bellowing his name, he proudly declares that you will not pass. He's no Galdalf the Grey, and he's actually really easy to pass.
