Inspired by the folk that have just started this and that my FB memories have been showing me all my Prey Slaughtered screencaps this month (I only got BB 2 years ago) and despite this rare, if unfortunate opportunity that I have to work through my ever growing pile of shame, I went back to this over the last week or so.
I've got 2 characters. One had finished the standard ending and was about to start NG+ and one that's stuck at OoK on NG. Decided on the NG+ character.
I haven't played this since Sekiro came out and I forgot how much fun this game is to play. Breezed through the first few areas until BSB. I've hammered BSB many times over in the Chalice Dungeons, but I ended up hitting a wall. Finally got the parry timing down after a few attempts but it shook me lol. Got my confidence back and have been breezing through each area a lot faster than I remember from my other attempts, loving every single second of it all over again. That is until I got to the fucking cunt that is Rom. This was my major roadblock on my first playthrough. To the extent that I actually stopped playing for over a month. Again, have hammered Rom many times since in the Chalice Dungeons and beat her 1st try on my 2nd playthrough but I hit another psychological wall. Everything since BSB had felt easy. Vicar Amelia, Paarl, The Witches and The Shadows all went down at the first attempt. 28 times it took lol. Had to take a couple of days break and almost didn't go back but the 28th attempt was the 1st attempt on Sunday afternoon lol.
Before I knew it, I'm at
(I'll spoiler the rest for those on 1st playthrough)
And for the first time, I'm playing offline as my PS+ ran out so no summons for any of the boss fights
Now I have a ton of Insight, I also forgot how it changes the look of the game and some of the gameplay. Makes me love the game even more!
