Ghost of Tsushima’s Sakai Katana
Gaming’s 6 Most Satisfying Weapons of 2020
Ghost of Tsushima was simply probably the greatest and most fashionable video games we had the pleasure of taking part in in 2020. Jin Sakai’s quest to kick the Mongols off the isle of Tsushima was one full of many trials and tribulations, culminating in an emotional ending that actually left its mark on us.
Alas, Jin would have been not more than an harmless bystander amidst all of the chaos if it wasn’t for the Sakai Katana, his household’s trusty blade that sliced and diced its method via Mongols like a sizzling knife via butter.
It wasn’t only a case of button mashing your method via the Mongol’s forces although. Jin’s stance needed to be modified to match his enemy’s weapon kind, including a further layer to the fight. However that made it all of the extra satisfying as you sifted via these on the transfer, countering enemies with relative ease and exploiting their weaknesses earlier than dispatching them with a classy, lethal ending transfer.
No second of the gameplay summed up how satisfying wielding the Sakai Katana was greater than enabling Ghost Stance for the primary time. Performing as a reward for defeating Mongol leaders or happening a kill streak, Ghost Stance sees the colour drain from the display and Jin embark on a killing rampage, slicing via the limbs and torsos of his cowering enemies with convincing slashes of the blade, the motion briefly receiving a purple overlay with every kill added to Jin’s tally.
It was ugly but fashionable. Gory, however gratifying. Easy, however efficient, and we might bang on about it for a lot of, many extra phrases. Alas, there are extra weapons to debate… and I’ll get advised off if I rant about it any extra!
