Revengeance mode is pretty much built around the player being at "new game plus" level upon entering it. Enemies deal fucking crazy
levels of damage, the window for parrying attacks is smaller, the Zandatsu squares (red squares in blade mode) are smaller, and most encounters either have different enemies or additional enemies (or both!). Jumping into Revengeance mode without any new game plus enhancements is borderline suicidal; the amount of damage every enemy does will kill you in either one or two hits and you'll also be missing a few almost essential upgrades.
In short - on this stream I'm going to be dying a lot
so I hope you have patience for seeing a lot of game over screens. I did a brief test run of this a few weeks ago and managed to get decently far into the second mission, so this isn't completely impossible. However I died a fucking ton during it, enough times to make Dark Souls
even blush. My goal for this stream will be to at least make it up to Mistral, which I think is entirely possible, but hopefully under 50 deaths.
In other news, I saw Guardians of the Galaxy
this weekend. As you may have already heard from pretty much everyone else, it's a great time. It's easily in the upper tier of Marvel movies. Not sure if I'd rank it better than Winter Soldier
, but damn I want to see it again.
