Blade Mode needs an extra button.

Specifically, one of the shoulder buttons (preferably RT) should be another automatic slash like square or triangle. This way you can control both joysticks with your thumbs and have your finger primed to slash at any given moment.

It would make that QTE during the final boss much more bearable; I started on hard mode and didn't have any trouble until that part completely wrecked me (and this is after looking through all those topics suggesting ways to position it correctly; I ended up just running from it).

Yes.

Although a good workaround to the final boss is to switch the functions of the left and right sticks - left for cut angle, right for camera, so you can use the face buttons after aligning the cut with the left.

It's a bad idea for general combat though, since you usually use the camera (on the left) + face buttons there, necessitating different thumbs.

I actually tried that. Worked perfectly for the first chunk but didn't help me for the second because you still have to tilt the view up for a second, and I can't jump between moving the camera with Rstick to clicking a button fast enough.

Honestly, I feel like the biggest help, besides the extra button, would be to have the little octagon shape around the control sticks like the Gamecube controller has. It'd make it easier to line up a perfectly diagonal slash (although that's kinda overkill).

I don't use buttons during blade mode. This is interesting to me.

Heh...only feature I kinda wish they'd left in from the early game builds and trailers (particularly the first MGR trailer), is the ability for Raiden to go flat-out beserk in Blade-mode on an enemy.

Now one can only do such at half that speed just mashing the buttons.

I find it more fun to do it myself instead of using the buttons, personally. I switch between it.

Yeah, the only reason I'd cut off all his armor pieces would be to get the lyrics of his battle theme to kick in. Otherwise he's dead in 30 sec.

Yeah, having R1 as an optional slash button would've been perfect.
