The Japanese myths and woodblock art behind Sekiro’s creatures

Fantastic creatures are as important to Sekiro as its samurai and shinobi. For every deftly fought duel against a venerable warrior there’s a slug-fest with a headless ape that hurls toxic poo. It’s a fine balance between the real and the romantic. Whereas Dark Souls had everything to do with “lore”, Sekiro more delicately pulls from folklore. Lordran is almost purely imaginative, but Sekiro’s Ashina…

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 PvP heads up the new Humble Monthly

From the few rounds I spent with it pre-release, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4's battle royale mode - Blackout - was a lot of fun, speaking as someone not particularly into Battle Royales. Today, you can snag Treyarch's big-budget manshoot for $12 (roughly £9.12), along with the game's other PvP modes in the cut-down Battle Edition, heading up this month's Humble Monthly. While it…

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 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?
