Note that the demo doesn't nearly do the game justice, even in the 'open world' segment. Lots of the game's finer elements don't show yet. Need to get back into this game.

Showcased basically everything the game has in the core in this boss fight. Infinite juggles, back-attacks power after a Square Triangle stagger, burst knockdown, charge kick knockdown on wakeup. Just messed up one input near the end. Enjoy :)

That one was a beautiful display! I actually fought this boss recently and he kicked my ass hard (Still managed to beat him without using items, which is my main objective in general), seems the Square-Triangle stagger is really the best combo opener in the game bar none, I should definitely exploit that one more.

Funny enough, the boss that comes after that one felt much easier overall, maybe because I was less sick/more focused for it, but at least I feel like I'm getting slightly better, and your videos definitely help with that!

Beat this a few weeks ago, really good, about what Roy said. Yeh I found the quick dialogue skip input shortly after that comment, it’s a life saver, given the brunt if dialogue was uninteresting to me. But it still can’t skip animations sadly, which is a lot of dead time.

Yeah I tend to share that concept, I really want to beat bosses the first time through at least without items so it felt like I won, otherwise you can win way too easily I feel. The gut-punch is fantastic, some other bosses have some answers to it sadly but nothing too special.

And yeah the series really needs a 'skip conversation' button. No excuse for it being absent imo.

Indeed, using items makes most fights very easy as long as you're at least decent at the game, given how much inventory space you have. I do use them in Long Battles since it feels more fair, but on one-on-one fights, I prefer not abusing that possibility.

And indeed, we can already skip cutscenes so letting us skip conversations seems like a good option too, sadly all we have is the fast forward.

Well, I finished the game today! Or at least the main story! Overall I had a lot of fun, mostly thanks to the combat system, Hard Mode on a first playthrough was decently challenging, I've never had a Game Over but I came close a few times, mostly due to not wanting to use items.

A little gripe with the combat is that the gut punch feels like the only somewhat safe combo opener on bosses, kinda limits your options a bit, but maybe I just didn't figure out some other technique.

Hey man! Glad you liked it and had fun! There's a lot to find in the game and to play. How did you like the 'final long fight'?

In terms of the combat, there are other openers, just not a lot. You can also use the launcher (dodge + T) including some regular punishes, but the gut-punch is really just the best option I feel. Strangely some bosses do resist it, like the Arena version of Toki.

The final Long Battle was pretty great! Lots of moving around and a ton of enemies to kill which is always fun! In contrast, the final boss himself was... pretty weak, I was 5 levels above him, but even then he felt a bit too easy.

The launcher was indeed pretty useful at times, yeah, juggles are really good in this game after all.

The Long Battle is so damn cool. The music is so beautiful. It's probably my favorite part of the game besides the boss battles.

I don't like the main villain. He's yet another Yakuza ass-pull villain who randomly shows up at the end to reveal his grand plan. Nadai was much more interesting than Mr. Jojo reject. I wonder if we'll ever get another Yakuza story as good as 0. That was the only one where they just kept it grounded the entire time. They just can't resist spazzing and having a dumbass plot twist in every game.

Anyway... what did you think of the game overall?

Long Battles in general were my favorite parts of the game, the fighting system is incredibly fun and mowing down hordes of enemies is a great feeling! Especially since you have a lot of Secret Techniques that are mostly used on regular enemies so you can kill them in so many different ways!

I agree with you about the main villain, while the twist about his accomplices was pretty interesting, it felt like it came a bit out of nowhere and didn't amount to much in the end, Nadai was a much more interesting antagonist, as you said, and put up a better fight too.
The story was overall fairly unremarkable to me, it had some nice moments, but nothing that blew me away, the game mostly shines thanks to its combat for me and thankfully gives a lot of content based on that, like the Bounty Hunter missions which actually had a decent (If predictable) story too.

I liked how they implemented the whole serie's canon though, showcasing all the big characters at least a little - great reference for the fans for sure and a nice intro for newcomers who are interested in learning more.

Agree the bountymissions were great fun too, though I guessed really quickly who the Ripper was sadly.

Put the game on hold for a bit, but it really is a title I see myself coming back to once every now and then!
