You have to hold down the X (or Square button if you're on PS4) button to pick up money (not sure about PC). You'll see Wolf have like a wind effect around him, and it's kinda like a vacuum that sucks up any loot. And the range is pretty far. This is also something you have from the very beginning of the game. It's not something you have to unlock. Hope this helps!

Also one other thing, after beating certain bosses, you will be sometimes awarded with shinobi abilities. Those abilities stack! Which means if you have to of the same, they get stronger. My mistake was, i thought the game wants that i save my ability points for later, when all bosses are beat. So that i dont waste my points on doubled abilities. But because they stack, you cant waste points in that way, so go and use them all. The abilities are very fun!

The Dragonrot mechanic is stupid, just like the health reduction mechanic in DS2. Hobbling a player for dying isn't fun. It isn't challenging. It's just punishing the player for trial and error. How are you supposed to feel emboldened to experiment with different ways to fight enemies if dying is gimping your playthrough in the long run?

I've played bloodborne and nioh, I liked bloodborne but didn't like nioh as much, is this game worth buying? Is there an actual story to follow with characters to get attached to or is it just running around killing everything until the credits roll

I've played all the Soulsborne games but I was lukewarm on Nioh. It's a decent enough romp if you like that kinda thing but I think it lacks character in a way. You have very little reason to be running around rural Japan completing "missions" and the stamina regeneration gimmick is just clunky and uninspired in my opinion, not as heart wrenching as landing that perfect parry in Sekiro. Sekiro is a Fromsoft game through and through (if a bit more streamlined) and takes itself more seriously than Nioh. It's also hideously difficult, as in it's possibly the hardest From game ever made. Holy hell is this game hard. I have an abusive relationship with Sekiro, it beats the shit out of me but I still love it. I think, more than the other souls games, it really builds on the player's development rather than the character's. You don't really level up in a conventional way, what levels up is simply your own ability and skill at playing the game. I'd definitely recommend it over Nioh.

I definitely don't want to jinx it, but after being completely turned off by Dark Souls (but not enough to watch your lore videos and such) and having an incredible time dying in this game (I hate you Lady Butterfly). I'm actually having fun (KB+M FTW) lol. I know I'm kinda late but definitely appreciating this content. Looking forward to seeing more about this game and, hopefully, Elden Ring (that I hope uses some of this combat system).

This is the worst FROM SOFTWARE game, not bad but not good either. They always ben dificult but fair and accessible to everyone, unfurtunatly Sekiro its not the case and this is why. The game forces you to play in a certain way that test your reflexes coordenation, in my opinion thats not fair couse everyone as diferent physical abilities. Ive been playing soulsborne since Demon Souls, never been very good at it but throu persistence, grinding, upgrading stats, testing diferent weapons/classes and adapting the tools to my playstyle. i got hours of pleasure with their games. Sekiro is very limited in this sence and is only accessible to some hardcore players. Im 37, i work all day and i just want to get home and have a good time with my girl playing a decent enjoyable game and i get none of that from this. Yeah i know how its meant to be played and gave it a fair go, 38h and did nail some bosses and mini bosses but it just does not work for me and a lot of soulsborne fans. From Soft should chek their ego and try to keep they quality, they are inumerous tec problems like ghost hitboxes, glitches, sometimes the graphics look like a ps2, the main character is dull as f ck etc... Sorry about the salt and the english but i needed to get this out of my system. For those who are having fun with this game im happy for you, for the rest maybe we get more luky next time...

I’ve noticed something about dragon rot and unseen aid, after curing the NPC’s during my current play through I’ve continued to die and haven’t lost any unseen aid or caused dragon rot again. I don’t know how , but the game takes my XP and money , but not any unseen aid or dragon rot infection . I’ve been at 30% unseen aid the entire game

År siden
Joshua Taylor

I believe it has something to do with not allowing your XP and money to reach 0. I’ve never died and had all my remaining XP and money taken away . It’s like the game says if you can’t give it money and XP it will take unseen said and cause dragonrot instead

Do you think the reason they said "there will be no Dark Souls 4" is partially due to fact that Sekiro heavily uses the 死 sign which is pronounced 'Shi' the same as the number 4 is pronounced? Also Vaati, do you think that Hanbei the Undying could potentially be a Hollow? I'm sure it's frequented discussion, but it was an occurring thought to me.
