Thanks. My track record with final bosses that I get stuck on isn't too good, I've noticed I tend to abandon a game if I don't finish it in a reasonable amount of tries. After surviving Sekiro for a while I started to be able to feel how much effort a boss would need in order to be defeated, i.e. "This is doable, I'm just fucking it up" or "I have no idea how to do this and need to rearrange my entire brain". The final boss seems to me like it's in that first category, so I just need to stop being impatient and set aside an afternoon for it. If I still can't do it I'll ask for your advice!

Ooo, Yakuza 3. That game has a special place in my heart cause it was my first in the series, which has since become one of my favorites in gaming. In hindsight, I still really love the quaintness of the Okinawa setting.

On Sekiro: It took me forever to adapt to the controls and (PvE) gameplay and I was on the very brink of ragedropping it several times, but *very* slowly and with lots of advice from a friend who had actually ragedropped it for a year before going back, beating it and subsequently praising it to the skies, I unlearned my soulsborne approach to the battling and instead learned how to succesfully progress. I really liked the setting and stealth mechanics right away, but it was only somewhere halfway through I started to actually understand and appreciate the battle system.
I'm pretty sure I'm right at the end now.

Having played through all of Scholar of the First Sin, I would say I found Sekiro to be more difficult/challenging, but, yeah, Dark Souls II sticks in my mind as the most annoying, most stupid-hard FromSoft game I've played. I was watching that TV series Devs earlier this year and there's a brief scene where a character is playing the Iron Keep area of Dark Souls II and I had a mini-PTSD flashback to that part of the game (easily the hardest section for me).

You're right, it does take a little while to wrap your head around the controls in Astral Chain, but once you do the combat is a whole lot of fun. I think I was expecting a more linear, combat-heavy, stage-based design to the game akin to Bayonetta, but it's almost more of an 'open world' (or open hub) structure with tons of sidequests—which strangely reminds me of the Yakuza games. About the only thing I don't like, though, is the repetitiveness of vacuuming up all the Red Corruption; everything else is pretty darn fun.

For whatever reason, I kinda burnt out on Sekiro shortly after where you're at in the game. What's weird is that even though some of the bosses like Madame Butterfly, Genichiro, and the Owl probably took me many more tries, the boss I have the most PTSD flashbacks about is the Guardian Ape...

Hope you enjoy Yakuza Kiwami 2! The substories are the highlights of the Yakuza games, but Y2 definitely has one of the strangest...

Curious to hear what's frustrating about Divinity 2? We plan to co-op the first game together and then buy the second if we like it well enough.

It's so tough to say - I think it depends on how much you're interested in the Assassin's Creed mythology and American history. If you dig that stuff, it might be enough to carry you through the underwhelming gameplay. I frequently found myself feeling like the next combat or stealth sequences in III were something I had to suffer or get through in order to be rewarded by the next cutscene - whereas in Odyssey, I had a blast just sneaking around and engaging in combat. As a protagonist, Connor isn't particularly likable either, but I did really enjoy the way Part III wove in a lot of the key figures and moments of the Revolutionary War, while providing some historical reference in the menus for players to read through if they're so inclined (I was).

So, Part III wasn't particularly fun to play, but the backdrop of the American frontier was certainly immersive to explore and the storyline is halfway compelling. I will say, having only played Black Flag for a few hours, it is much, much more enjoyable and so far seems to be up there with Part II and Odyssey as one of my favorite installments in the series.

NieR: Automata!
That's a good game, though parts of it are better if you've played NieR before. You have to beat it a few times to see all of the story, though after ending B I'd recommend backing up your save data.

Banner Saga 2 is really great. If you were going to go for it, right after beating 1 is a good time, given that the difficulty and mechanical complexity is a linear continuation from the end of the first game.

Yeah, XIII is tough for having some really challenging bosses. FFII is the true black sheep of the series.

Good luck with the Persona marathon! I worried about having enough time for a while, but then they kept delaying Persona 5. There's no good reason to delay it again though.

For now I'm enjoying the updates to Odin Sphere, but I remember it getting very repetitive later on so I may take breaks if it feels necessary.

I've also wanted to start FFXV, but then they announced more updates and it kind of killed my enthusiasm. I hope you enjoy Eternal Punishment! It is rather dated but I enjoyed Persona 2 overall more than Persona 3.
