I'm sure you'll be happy to know that my foot is getting better.
I can walk around and stuff, although it's still very bruiséd, and hurts to touch, so shoes are being avoided where possible.

Played a bit more Ninja Gaiden last night. Very good, although ridiculously hard.
You would need to enjoy restart screens a lot to get much enjoyment from it.
Fortunately for me, restart screens are a challenge, rather than a point for despair.

It also seems, as has been described elsewhere, that there's very little 'freestyling'.

That is, once you've maxed our your weapons, and have all the combos, you basically have to remember all of them. Mashing sort of works, but I'm on the easiest level, and having my arse handed to me on a regular/frequent basis. So, actually, it doesn't work at all.

The advantage of DMC4 was that there were a lot of short moves which could easily be chained. This is all very long moves.

Still, I'm going to persevere. I like it, and the blood, whilst terribly inappropriate for the chidlers, is hilarious.
