    If she does the face stomp thing and kills you, boy can't res you. I agree though, the other Valkyries were challenging but fun, the Queen was just annoying. Her unblockable jab kept screwing me over, and I only ended up beating her because I got lucky and she only used that jab twice and missed me both times.

    Finally killed her today. I'm now ready for some Bloodborne as frustration of dying doesn't annoy me that much lol.

    Also agree that other Valkyries were fun, this was not.

    When I killed the Queen I didn't take damage until she was at like 20% health. The only move that isn't heavily telegraphed is the jump. The only real difference between her attacks and the other Valkyries is that she can combo them together a bit more, but they're always the same combo.

    Don't really agree that the jab was heavily telegraphed, she just randomly lunges with an unblockable attack and hits for 75% of your health. And that is exactly what makes her so difficult, she has access to all of the other Valkyries gimmicks combined and she certainly does not always use them in the same order.

    Jab is telegraphed by which side she approaches you from. If she dodges left it's the unblockable, if she dodges right it's... something else. I don't remember anymore; maybe the blockable swipe-combo-thing (which then could possibly have an unblockable at the end of it). That might also be backwards.

    Might not matter if she's right on top of you, but yea, was something I picked up in earlier fights.

    And I was backwards, it was if she came from the right.

    Finally beat her. We killed each other at the same time twice. Somehow beat her without using a resurrection stone.

    Just 100% the game on my "give me challenge"- playthrough. My grievances are pretty much the locked camera and how few different enemies there are in the game. Fighting troll after troll gets really boring as they mostly do the same things and these are supposed to be main "boss" fights you get in the game if you don't bother with Valkyries.

    Still, great game and worth the price tag.

    I was really looking forward to digging into this as I have some time off starting today. That is until my PS4 Pro crapped the bed. Guess I have to wait a little longer! Loved the little bit of it I did get to play though

    Finally started this a few days ago.

    A lot of fun but no depth whatsoever.

    Glad I got it as a trade in because paying full price for this would have been brutal.

    Yea paying full price for one of the best games in the last few years is such a travesty.

    It's basically Resident Evil 4 with melee combat rather than guns.

    It's fun and very well put together but hardly what I'd call amazing.

    I mean that's fine, you can have your own opinion and I'm not even sure what you mean by that comparison. And I mean the combat has a ton of depth alone it it, and the story only gets better the further you get. The world also has a lot of secret areas and things/challenges to do, so your depth comment I believe is just wrong.

    Well in my opinion it’s the best game I’ve played since Ori and the Blind Forest. A lot of fun and top notch presentation on top of that.

    I guess the hype just didn't deliver for me.

    I am still having fun, I just don't get the "this is incredible"

    Comparing something to RE4 isn't much of a criticism. Oh no, it reminds me of one of the best games of all time. What a rip off.

    I git gud, started having a lot more fun and the story was epic if you do a bit of digging into Norse mythology: having Baldur be the last boss was sweet.

    I must be getting old, took a while for me to get the hang of combat :laugh:

    After beating Sigrun I decided to restart on Give me God of War.

    After knowing, and getting used to, the combat abilities later on in the game, the beginning of the story where you can only slash and throw is pretty difficult and tedious.

    One of the top games of the past decade for me. The only other game that I was similarly invested in in the past ten years is The Witcher 3.

    My only gripe is I felt like the ending came rather abruptly. I had just finished up Muspelheim and then the Brok and Sindri quests and hadn't even went to Niflheim yet and it seemed like I went back to the storyline and it just finished right there. I'm happy I didn't mess around with the valkyries because I would have felt like I wasted my time getting all this great gear without much else to do.

    I also agree that the Leviathan Axe combat in this game might be my favorite in any game. Just absolutely loved destroying everything.
