The only good Souls game is Dark Souls, and even then it's only good until you reach Anor Londo.

Demon's laid the groundwork so it gets a pass but 2,3 and Bloodborne can all go die. They're just worse versions of Dark Souls and none of the new shit is any good. Lorefags can fuck off too, I've never seen people pull so much bullshit out of thin air than loretwats with the Souls series.

Sadly so. No comment on Bloodborne since I don't own a niggerstation but DS2 is is bad and DS3 is "not as bad" but still not good as the first game.

I wonder if they tried too hard to capture the first game's "magic" and they should have instead just go in different directions. Maybe that would had been better since it's obvious they didn't get what was good about the first game.

Dark Souls does get worse once you reach Anor Londo, though I would say that it picks up slightly once you get to the bonfire inside the main building and stays good through Ornery and Smokey. After that though, with the possible exception of the Dukes Archive which is somewhat more in keeping with the first half of the game level design-wise, it becomes terribly linear and boring, with uninteresting enemies, badly thought out enemy placements and single track level designs.

The Virtua Fighter series has animation frame cancels, also one or more of the older Street Fighter games (starting with 2).

Also, Gunz… what happened to that gookshit? It was fun to play with f2p but there weren't enough maps, and playing against whales sucked.

The only thing that made me want to play it was the atmosphere and the trick weapons, which were way better than weapon arts in 3 imo. I suppose having quickstep instead of rolling was another good point but they really shot themselves in the foot making it ps4 exclusive, they could have eventually had a PC release. I do, however, like 1 for the slower combat.

bloodborne is better and the combat is more fun. less weapons, but each weapon has a much better/more complex moveset. the weapons have a better balance and each weapon is viable. nothing is objectively better. the smaller build variety doesnt really matter since dark souls only has 3 builds and one of them is just a safe/boring option. (speed, tank, or magic) bloodborne only has speed and magic.

dark souls is 2nd, then demon souls, then dark souls 3, then 2. 2 is the worst.

he only figured it out because people yelled at him enough.

i dont think he would have figured it out on his own.

his argument is that dark souls doesnt explicitly tell him how to equip items, it just gets you to the screen. which is like every rpg i've ever played up until this last generation of games.. he also was confused how this room with a 1 way entry had a message he thought appeared thinking he would only see it on his way back out the room.

he's retarded.

Then he shouldn't be playing games.

they say if you have an IQ lower than 84 you're unable to work, since your brain is stupid enough to be unable to efficiently translate verbal instructions to tasks to perform.

no, if you were able to equip items or knew which way to go after beating that boss, then youre the stupid one, because the game didnt explicitly tell you to do that. he said so himself so it must be true.


>Surely he would look around and see the open exit door right in front of him when he walks in.

tbh i never even noticed the soap stone message was there. but if i did, i'd know you were expected to read it when entering the room after beating the boss, not after running halfway up the stairs and turning around.

also, why would he stop going up the stairs? he didnt inspect it to see if there were items? its not like you can see the top landing of the stairs until you actually run up the steps. but the cutscene starts.

The only good Souls game is the one that never existed.

04e326 No.14799652

All of the games suffered from budgetary concerns, cut content and rushed deadlines. DeS, 1 and BB made do the best, 3 was haphazardly shoved into BB's engine halfway through development and DS2 was a mess before they even scrapped it to fix it.

The real problem with the series is that DeS was experimental because it was allowed to be, it was a project written off as DOA so they just let the team do whatever they wanted. As the series progressed, it moved more and more towards action and epic moments and bosses. It essentially became what it was trying to differentiate itself from.

A good video game has any enemy that forces the user to properly maneuver the environment to defeat.

Dark Souls has pop ups that kick your ass due to poor game design and then when you know what will happen next you roll under said monster and shank it in the nuts killing it, then continue.

Dark Souls isn't hard, you die a lot, but it's not hard, such the term "Artificial difficulty."

72305d No.14799772


usually refers to shallow difficulty. like throwing in an element of randomness that can fuck you up at random. people use the dragon on the bridge as an example of the "artificial difficulty"

trial and error difficulty also comes to mind.

or think phone games similar to bust-a-move. the way they work is they give you the tools needed to beat it by giving you the correct colors, then as you do well, they amp up the difficulty by not giving you colors you need making it impossible, so they encourage you to buy more turns.

the game has moments where you face an enemy thats too hard for you and you may have to come back, and lets you figure that out on your own because the game doesnt force or strongarm you to take an easier path.

dark souls can be completed without leveling up at all? did you mean to say that? or do you not understand what a "build" is?

amygdala wasnt THAT hard , she was quite hard , but not on the same level as bork bork , you just had to force her jump by staying on her tail , then you charged you'r weapon when she jumped , safe and easy method , but i lookied it up after 20+ deaths

i wonder why the discrepancy. i often see people complain about the fire dog, but its one of the very few bosses i beat on my first try.


i couldnt get near amygdala, and when i did, id either get slapped. or she'd jump to the other side of the map, facing me. forcing me to have to run through her hands and hope i dont get killed in 1 hit.

the dog i barely had trouble with. found more trouble with the rifle spear hunter. and much more trouble with the katana hunter.

It has interesting places afterwards, too. And other games have some interesting aspects to them as well. Just because they're not overall better doesn't mean they're not better in some places.

>Lorefags can fuck off too

You're acting as if that was people's fault. It's like this by design. They ENCOURAGED people to be lorefags from the very beginning. It's a genius marketing strategy to get people who are not even remotely interested in the gameplay to get into the games and talk about them, thus attracting more people into it. I don't particularly care about the lore, my point is lorefags are 100% FromSoft's fault, and they're very proud of it.

They'll never do it.

Demons was the prototype for Dark Souls, the less refined game that lead to it. Dark Souls was the popular one that's capable to attract a large enough audience to justify a remaster. Not saying the remaster is good, just that it makes more sense from a business standpoint. Plus, there's already some PC code to work from, meaning less work and money involved to make it.

Aside from all that, Sony has a hand in Demons' copyright and trademark, so it's less easy to pull off something like that.

PS3 is a dead platform at this point so technically they shouldn't be this jewish about it since they're not going to be selling any new PS3s for people to play Demon Souls on. They're just holding on to it for ultra conservative and needlessly fussy business practices. Much like MGS4.

Yeah that works. I have a couple low level characters, and at any rate, when you use password matchmaking the game scales down high levels to match the host. Somehow while trying and failing to make Harrison Ford to play an Indiana Jones character I made a near-perfect copy of Russell Crowe and decided to make Maximus, been using the Valorheart.

One thing that would be fun is getting a bunch of anons and cosplaying as peasants, and ganking any knight faggots that invade.


By metal level i mean a character in/above the pvp meta level of 120, so it's simply a reference to higher leveled play. I think the character is 150~something.

The only problem I can see with the tapes is that you have to listen to them. You either have to actually sit down and listen to them because you're actually invested in the shitty story about wolbachia that turn the friggin frogs gay and how english is an evil language, or you play them while playing the game which can be but is not necessarily distracting. The thing about item lore is that it's usually a short blurb that you can read and get back to the game and not lorefag over which I do not condone, though I think it would be nice if souls had taken a larger cue from "show, don't tell".

I'm pretty sure just leveling the pyromancy flame makes them stronger, but do stats affect it?

I also have a story-teller staff that has poison on the alt. How do I make that stronger?

>Pestilent murcury

I'm pretty sure casting this does a set amount of damage over time within the cloud regardless of levels or staves used.

All in all, I think leveling dex and nothing else is the safest option to increase my cast efficiency, leveling endurance is also good so I can keep ROLLING ROLLING ROLLING so there becomes no way to attack me as I play the slow and steady game, and I think luck, because luck has some tie to status ailments I think?

(2) a 5-hit combo attack where any single hit guarantees with hitstun that the following hits will all land, which would be completely fine if the second hit of the combo wasn't timed perfectly to land right after the i-frames from a fast dodge roll end but before a second dodge can be used

I'm amazed during replaying it how much cheap bullshit like this I'm coming across that for some reason nostalgia, rose-colored glasses, or what have you blinded me from remembering from my original playthroughs. I still enjoy it overall but God fucking damn some of these bosses are programmed just to be gigantic cunts, I swear.

Also OP fuck you Bloodborne is fantastic.

The lore is better, and I like the faster gameplay, but Dank Souls has objectively better and more tightly knit level design. I fucking love the layout of Dark Souls and Bloodborne doesn't pull it off quite as well. Especially with the larger number of completely isolated areas.

>and has a landing hitbox that partially hits behind the player meaning that even with a shield up you'll take considerable damage

Well yeah, he's smashing you from above so your front-facing shield shouldn't block that. It's a very easy attack to dodge.

>where any single hit guarantees with hitstun that the following hits will all land

Anon get some poise or just wear the wolf ring if you want to use light armor.

>which would be completely fine if the second hit of the combo wasn't timed perfectly to land right after the i-frames from a fast dodge roll end but before a second dodge can be used

It sounds like you're treating it like DS3 where rollspam can get you out of most tricky situations. Don't do that. Instead, you should be rolling THROUGH his attacks, and you won't have any problems with that combo at all.

>I'm amazed during replaying it how much cheap bullshit like this I'm coming across

Dark Souls 2 and 3 are prime examples of "no fun allowed" changes to the meta.

Devs have this bizarre assumption that by nerfing everything fun to use you can somehow fix people coming up with a new meta. Metas will always exist, all you are doing is making the game less fun for everyone.

In DaA 3 I don't even have 1/3 of the build potential I had in DaS1 because they split everything into separate skills and made all the equipment absurdly heavy. I hope your happy fromsoft, your game is so "balanced" now. :)))

>This is the most casual thing I've ever heard.

No, you posers pretend you're hot shit PRECISELY because the souls games have a low skill ceiling.

To a casual, experts in DMC and RE:Mercenaries look like supermen whose moves are too fast to even be seen. Because the skill ceiling there is as high as the player's own abilities. By comparison a souls game is a rhythm game where you either play the song right or try again.

39c092 No.14806559


Both can work well and it's viability depends on the game.

Uncancellable needs more planning and commitment, better for slower games whith emphasis on carefulness and tactics.

Cancellable results in faster moves, where you can dish out damage carelessly as long as you are close enough to the enemy. Better in a game where you have good ranged damage options or that have a faster non-stop flow to it.

imo Uncancellable needs more skill in order to execute whitout getting penalized for poor execution.

Cancelable allows for more cool shit if you have the skills, but doesn't make it much harder if you don't have them.

Bloodborne is a well executed DS3. I wish they stuck with the great level design of DS though. That that was dropped always disappointed me.

1a59e1 No.14821266

Bloodborne is so fucking overrated it's insane. It is a good game, but nowhere near great. Every playthrough feels the exact same since there is barely any variety in the combat. The enemies bosses are all just huge fast shit or human sized fast shit that all hit hard as fuck and chimp out constantly while screaming until you're fucking deaf. Then for variety there are ones that gun spam with infinite ammo. The performance is shit too. It's good for a few runs and then it just gets boring. I really don't get all the dicksucking for this shit. Compared to other action games it is sorely lacking. The level design is pretty cool at times though.

BB is a tricky one. It has great lore, story, art design and fun combat. However, as you say, the combat is the most redundant of the series.

>Compared to other action games it is sorely lacking

This is a big issue few talk about. The SoulsBorne games have moved further into action territory but do it poorly compared to a lot of others. What was once a series about trying something new, encouraging players to think outside of just "hit and avoid damage until dead". Almost subversion as it went the other way. The bosses in DeS are very unique, nearly all of them different than damn near every other game out there. None of those unique bosses or ideas carried over to DS, let alone BB or DS2 or 3.

If you haven't already watch this, it sums things up well.

They are onto something with the transformations though. The beast rune, ayy lmao rune and the dragon stones in DS. They should make a new game about all these things interacting and fighting against each other and together. Some B movie about all these different monsters or something.

I'm glad someone else gets it.

Dark Souls isn't hard, it just has a set difficulty that is higher than normal (for today), and it requires that you either learn to play (the fabled "git gud") or you fuck off.

Baby mode difficulties, waypoints, quest trackers, floating markers, adjustable difficulties, tutorials, all that shit is superfluous garbage for people who actually know how to play, and who find joy in the experience of exploration and experimentation, which old games had shitloads of (although in some cases it was a little too esoteric, like having to bomb every wall in Hyrule because there was no indication of any kind as to which tile was vulnerable).


He probably never encountered an enemy that you couldn't kill the first time you meet it so he tried to melee solo the Hellkite on the bridge.

Either that or he just doesn't know how to play a game that doesn't make objects you interact with glow like the sun so he missed a ladder somewhere.

I think that's exactly what DS is trying to re-capture and does right. A lot of old games were vague as fuck, and that's partially what made older games so interesting and bigger than themselves. Ocarina of Time has countelss "urban legends" surrounding it for example, its just how games were back then. That's what I think a lot of games today try to re-create but always fail to do so without it feeling contrived.

As soon as I saw people complaining not just about hackers in the Remaster but referring to a singular hacker in a he-who-shall-not-be-named fashion, identifying him only as "him," I knew Malcolm Reynolds was back. On the DS3 launch he would summon people using "reddit" as the password, and would cause players to get insta-banned when he struck them with his weapon, because it would apply to them various flags that the game's anti-cheat is looking to block.

Ages ago he put up a video about using Cheat Engine in Dark Souls 1, but it seems to have been deleted from his channel. Luckily I have it saved, though it's a bit long to comfortably sit in a WebM.

It's best problem was the failure of implementing the ligth effects from the trailers, which left massive areas looking either too brigth or color-washed.

>cheap difficulty is just a more accurate description of artificial difficulty.

I like to think there's a difference between the two.

Cheap difficulty is an obstacle that can be passed through obscure ways or abusive mechanics. Like old Mortal Kombat games and their input reads.

Artificial difficulty are obstacles that has no reason to be difficult but can only be reasonably passed by meeting an artificial requirement. As much as I love Dragon's Dogma they for damn sure love to pull this shit. Level 15 and your weapon has 300AR? Have fun spending 2 hours on a troll. Level 17 with 315AR? The fight can now be finished in 15min.

Artificial Difficulty usually stems from devs programming retarded formulas on how damage is calculated. Hence the reference to DD.

As there are no proofs for a so called holocaust.

There are proofs of over 2 Million killed Partisans and Robber Bands (mainly jews, because, suprise, jews were the main drive behind communism and collaborators of the soviet union and "social democrats") and included in the 6 Million figure), but that is no holocaust.

There are proofs of Labor camps, famine and sickness, which claimed up to 1 Million inmates but that is no holocaust.

There are possible proofs of one mobile execution van (so called gas van) for execution of criminals in Poland.

Or if you think there are proofs you must also acknowledge the german atom bomb that was used to combust jews on the spot, the holocauster, the headcrackermachine, the 1000 People electric chair, soap and lampshades made out of jews, that 2 Million of those alledgedly gassed were gassed using Diesel Engine fumes most of those killed by the fumes of a captured Soviet Submarine, and 40 meter high blood fountains that burst open at random on the mass graves of the gassed jews.

Also you have to disregard the deaths of the asoscial, gypsies, gays, communists, social democrats, traitors and other undesireables and claim that they only died because of jews and a hatred for them.

>tfw DS3 hit it's peak when you could invade boss arenas as a Mound Maker from a bug

>having to juggle between the boss, the player, and their buttbuddies. Maximum multitasking.

>fun was gone when they patched it

That was legit the most fun I had in the souls series as a whole. It truly felt this was what Mound Makers/being the wild card was supposed to be.

Oh, you're a console gamer. Fair enough, you didn't get a single interesting game until 2015.

for multiplayer though, DaS II has the most flexible combat with most room for creativity

Demon's Souls is the superior game, you know this to be true. The only reason Dark Souls got so popular was because of kids that didn't own a PS3. DaS has levels that are completely ripped from DeS, then neutered and shortened. The only "difficulty" in DaS is the damage increase from DeS. DeS let's you explore without punishing you nearly as harshly, and sets up smart or predictable traps every once in a while, DaS just forces you to pussyfoot through the entire fucking game.

That Drake sitting on the gate in DaS? DeS has an entire section where that fucker hunts you down the entire length of a fortress wall. This is not to say that Dark Souls in it's entirety sucks, but had From wizened up and released Demon's on every platform as their first Souls game, we would have a higher standard of quality for what classifies as a "hard" game.

Why of course I have BB, I'm not a poorfag like you.

>fox and the grapes situation.

Would you kindly (without overheating your brain) explain to me how having a GameBoy, Snes, PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP and a PS4 has stopped me from playing games in my 486, Pentium 2 and Current PC?

You're getting way too bent out of shape over me calling you on your shit taste. Reminder that this started because you claimed a 5/10 at best game was the best game released in 2014.

The level design in bloodborne is fucking ace tier man. You can clearly spot cathedral ward from almost every outside area in the main game and can see many areas way before getting there. There are lots of shortcuts and loops that tie the game together, and the environment is the most incredibly detailed I have encountered in a game. There is some serious 'tism on jewtube going over the thought that went into the level design and there is a lot you dont see on a first pass.

Is this bait? Anyway, I actually enjoy the meme souls games, except 2 which I have never bothered with. I have a hankering to play bloodbourne again, but I could only play it on my mates bloodbourne machine which I no longer have acess to since he moved to sydney and I really cant justify buying a console for one game.

If they didn't abandon the level design of Dark Souls, I could put so many more hours into DS3. What a waste.
