When I first played the Demo, I was pretty damn disappointed. I thought the whole Parrying thing was very easy, and even though I kept making mistakes, it was like impossible for me to die at all because of the whole Spine Ripping thing, and even then, There were like 4 Nano-paste pick ups through out the level, making it even more impossible for me to die. So I ended up beating it despite screwing up constantly, and I was just so disappointed.
Of course, I rationalized it was the demo, so I assumed it'd get much harder, and that hard mode would probably make it more challenging, but I was still pretty disappointed, especially since Bayonetta on Normal still kicked my ass,
But then, I played through it again, and again, and again. I started destroying those enemies, effortlessly, getting S ranks, and ripping out every single spine I could find. And then, I realized just how damn fun it was to just rip enemies apart. Sure, the game was challenging, but the better I got at the game, the more I dug into the game, the better it got. And now, I'm absolutely loving the demo, trying to find new ways of ass kicking, and spine ripping.
