Finally understanding the importance of parrying attacks and posture management in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is liberating. I feel like I can more freely explore the world without fear of getting owned by every other enemy and mini boss. Now my only concern is beating the game too quickly, as I found more rest idols last stream and all previous streams combined.
If I had to guess how far I’ve progressed in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice using a three act format, I’d say that I’m in the early second act. This is bitter sweet because the game feels really good to learn and play, but all good things must come to and end.
