The bow legion fight was so annoying because of having to use the L slash. I feel time should of been slowed down more in that attack when in combat.
Use control layout C. You‘re welcome.Still early on (file 3) but man, this game just isn't clicking so far. The stuff at base and then the investigation parts of chapters are just boring and kill the pacing. Then the combat just feels messy so far, so many buttons to remember. It feels so unnatural to me to have three of the shoulder buttons to control the legion and then the fourth is the attack button, and then I'm always pressing A to dodge instead of B. Obviously a learning curve but it doesn't feel 'right' to me. I'm trying to learn how to pull of this L button slash attack and it's so clunky, I'm just having to use it now to sever the link between two enemies and it's so finicky trying to line it up mid-action, and there's a weird delay between pressing the button and the actual UI appearing.
I'll keep going and hope it clicks, W101 is like in my top 10 games ever and I was hoping to like this just as much.
I agree, this game is full hype anime cyberpunk action.
I thinks the first translation was a bit wrong. Taura himself corrected the translation.
This exact thing happened to me too. Weirdly you can take out the in-game camera while you're floating, but since you can't escape it without a hard reset, none of the photos will get saved.
I fell out of the world when it didn't load properly. I don't want to advertise my own twitter feed too much but there's a bunch of other tweets there showing off the weird proclivities of this (like, for example, riding/wearing the two Legions you can allows you protection from the void boundary and that leads to some weird shit)
It's kinda funny because
If anything I don't want them to remove the plattforming, I want them to improve it.The platforming in this game really is dreadful, yeah. If there's a sequel I don't want to see any of it, I really, really don't. Along with any annoying manouevering around disappearing platforms, moving obstacles. Hate it. The number of times I've rolled my eyes because of the fiddly chain jumping is very high. Especially when you have to do it around some fucking crystals and the character just brushes them and falls to their death.
Think I'm almost done now, found it quite funny that I've got the Order completed for beating the game with an A rank even though I'm still on chapter 11. Wonder if I'll get over the line for an S rank before the credits roll...
thanks for this post! was about to give my impressions (just started the fifth chapter), & you've said it all as well as i could've...It's a strange game, and I stand behind most of the criticisms I made of it when I was partway through. The pacing is strange, and the density of secrets in the levels had me slowing down and scouring everything (and still missing lots of cats, toilets, and cases), even when the game wants to create a sense of urgency. Minigames and side activities vary wildly in quality. The scoring system is absolutely busted, with battles being incredibly difficult to do well in early on, and then trivial to S+ once all your legions are available. Legion maintenance is a bad mechanic that makes the game worse. The story is incredibly predictable pulp, with few characters that really stand out, stakes that didn't feel as monumental to me as they should have (even at the game's climax), and lots of weirdly dropped plot threads surrounding critical aspect of the setting which I assume are being saved for the planned trilogy...
Riding the Beast is terrible. There's no slow movement, it just shoots in whatever direction and jumps off platforms without a second thought. That combined with the disappearing platforms in case 5... Why does Platinum keep insisting in these types of platforms?
Also I loath that enemies attack off screen, is Bayonetta really the only game from them that did this right? There's no clear cue I find and I just get slaughtered by something I can't see or hear coming.
Hahaha I agree, the game should have a difficulty option a the start of the chapter or a selector in some menu, I wonder why they decided to ask every time you finish a chapter.
If I replay a chapter within a file... do I have to finish the whole file in order to continue to my latest played file/point in the game?
Does it affect progress, upgrades, ranks, rewards?
Also, any tips for camera configuration? I'm having trouble with the camera during battles.
