And suddenly Sekiro being complete garbage makes sense.

The series had a good run. Its dead now. See: Every single series Activision touches.

If I recall correctly, Ulti said he wanted to play the game with just dodging and ignoring the parry mechanic because "that's how the other games were", and he's real mad he can't do that.

This is the childish mentality that prevents your business and your job from growing into anything even remotely relevant.

I learned the game's mechanics fine, because the parry window is clearly much bigger than in the Souls games. The hitboxes are just such laughable trash, especially on the big moves. You can legitimately jump a sweep or low hit and get hit by it anyway, and some enemies put even Dark Souls 2 hitbox/tracking to shame. It's legitimately trash.

The most famous example is grab range on bosses, which is a meme at this point: https://clips.twitch.tv/ComfortableImpossibleCamelSeemsGood

This is the first game in the series Activision is involved with, so of course parts of it are lazy, rushed garbage. If you look at their history, everything they touch quickly dies the second they get involved. I don't even need the obvious Blizzard example, though it is the easiest one. Ask any World of Warcraft player.

This one works much better: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guitar_Hero_III:_Legends_of_Rock

Once Activision shows up, you get one decent game followed by a dead series or a dead brand. I remember to this day Board 8 loving GH3 and shitting all over Paratroopa for his legitimate criticisms, and how he feared Activision getting involved would kill the series. People thought he was nuts. Well he was ultimately proven right back then and I will be proven right over this franchise. Sekoulsborne is done if Activision sticks around.

This game's hitboxes are a known issue that can very easily end this series, and everyone was talking about this at launch. This isn't some topic where you get to pretend I'm wrong.

Here's a good reference: https://www.gamesradar.com/exactly-how-many-studios-has-activision-closed-generation-exactly-many/

From Software would be very wise to never work with these losers ever again.

If Activision did actually anything besides publishing it you might have a case.

From Software self-published it in Japan, even

from what I've read, Activision's only significant involvement was the intro level. They only made the game more accessible.

I don't know why you'd think something like the size of some random mini boss's hitbox would be based on their input.

(btw this game is very good)

Listening to his complaints in this topic, I can safely say Ulti is either playing this game like the Soulsborne games and getting his ass handed to him, which the game will, if you play thay way or he is just plain bad at the game.

I'm on my 3rd playthrough and have blitzed past all the bosses that I had real difficulty with in my 1st playthrough. Not a bragging elitist post by any means, the game just requires you to git gud at its mechanics and then the fun follows.

For anyone on the fence. This is another brilliant masterpiece by FromSoftware that requires maybe a little bit more patience for the game to click, moreso than its previous titles.

Also all this whining about hitboxes being broken. You can literally avoid any enemy attack in the game so long as you are parrying, dodging or jumping according to the type of enemy move.

There are certain mini-bosses where the camera ****s with you because of the arena being too small but that is about the only thing that I can accept as a legit complaint about the combat.

What's funny is the camera isn't bothering me at all when locked on, which is usually a huge issue in these games.

All this trolling is exactly what B8 pulled with Para, by the way. "Activision only PUBLISHED Guitar Hero 3, it was so good, blah blah blah".

Disagreeing with Ulti is trolling, of course.

Facts don't care about your feelings, dude, and the fact is that Activision did only publish the game, and even then only in the west. Another fact? You did complain about parrying being more important than dodging in the Sekiro topic.

And every Soulsborne game has suspect hitboxes at times, and Sekiro is no better or worse than the other games in that regard. The ogre seems to be the worst offender in that regard.

Hell, Sekiro has just as many amazing hitboxes as iffy ones. A quick google search turns back more results for good ones I find.

Yes, exactly. The truth. I don't even know what you think you can reasonably argue here. This is stupid even by your standards.

That means you are not that far in the game or you missed a certain mini-boss who is infamously known for the ****ty camera.

I legit believe there is no way you of all people will not complain about that unless you missed it or you didn't get that far.

Not saying this is the case here. Ive never played these games too much.

But Activision is known for slowly milking and eventually killing series.

We will see how it plays out, this is just the first game and the first couple they put out are typically just fine.
