Really excited line is still open for this. Things have cleared up just before the end, so I'll try and knock some more out. I have to catch a train, and Nintendo was a journey, but I'm gonna stick it out.
Game was quite fun, but I was having a bit of trouble with the guarding controls. Granted it was new to me, I found my brain and fingers a bit confused trying to guard the proper direction, then counter attack. Beautifully gorgeous game. Demo was linear, but that's OK. Reminds me slot of Ryse. Cannot wait to play a Viking and ESPECIALLY Samurai. Finisher moves were gory and gratifying.
