Is offline Ultimate mode worth playing? Does it get better after a few urgents?
Expert had a whole new batch of Oni and a new story but so far Ultimate looks like a gaggle of recolors with higher HP. I'm rapidly losing steam and thinking of dropping it.
Glaciabella's pretty neat with that transformation.
Snowflame was a good fight when I was still learning its moves.
As far as I remember there weren't any new Onis in Ultimate. It only gave you a bunch of old ones and maybe some recolors like from the last story related boss. DLC missions had like 1-2.
Thank you. That's exactly what I needed to know.
Guess I'm done with the game, at least for a long while.
I booted up the game just to make sure. Those are the last few Oni in the game. I think everything after Aurogrinder is in the DLC missions.
It's not because it's too hard or anything. Fights aren't even that long, nothing's reached 10 minutes ever since I figured out how things work. It's just not engaging enough to fight the same exact monsters for a whole new third of the game. I approach all the Oni the same way and run into no difficulty.
Don't get me wrong I still enjoyed the game, just not enough to do it all over again so soon.
Thanks for checking.
It's going to be pseudo-open world, apparently. Lords know how that'll work.
I'll be curious to know whether or not KT will ever bother bringing the sequel to Steam, given how absolutely Godawfully the original sold.
Not really. It has a seperate Singleplayer / multiplayer campaign but you'll have to clear the regular Toukiden story for the first 9 chapters or so which wasn't that great. It gets better later but that's probably like 20-30 hours of gameplay before you even reach that part. And many missions force you to fight the same onis for the 20th time.
It's okay. Second half of the story was much better but the first half could have been better. Try it if you already like hunting games. Avoid like the plague if you don't already enjoy the concept of fighting one boss multiple times for equipment crafting.
I played on the Vita. I don't know if online Ultimate is actually a thing, I didn't touch online play.
>given how absolutely Godawfully the original sold Gee I wonder why
>Put game on steam a year later and charge MORE than a brand new AAA game
>No one could get the game to work and if they eventually did there was gamebreaking glitches
>Never goes on sale for a decent price
>Koei releasing a batch of overpriced broken games, Doa 5, Bladestorm, Dynasty 8 empires and Toukiden
I really love their games but they can get fucked when it comes to pc
It's basically a mix of musou combat and hunting style grinding / enemies. It's really mash heavy on some weapons while others are slow. Generally it feels like there isn't much impact on your hits. Here's a video of a higher level oni
without sound though because koei tecmo are fucking jews and they disabled sound for the build in PS4 recording tool. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q32qrWDyJwg
>disabled sound for the built-in recording tool
Are these niggas for real?
Licensing issues or something like that. Not that it's great anyways, it mostly records stuff at 720p/30fps instead of original resolution and framerate, they just fucked up Toukiden even more. I've never heard of any other game doing this though.
I know there are status ailments. There are plenty of times aside from those where it stands there breathing in a neutral position after an action and it drives me bonkers how long it takes.
Adding to this, maybe my biggest issue with the game is how long the Oni spend not threatening the player. Too much time passes in between possible damage. They just sit there for several seconds at a time, roar uselessly, get stunned, take several seconds to flinch, get their legs continuously chopped off, have too many attacks that don't threaten anyone but their immediate target, and spend way too long telegraphing obvious attacks even late into the game. When playing as Bow I could stand right next to most of them and have no fear.
