Holy shit. UT99 was my fucking favorite. Probably what started my poor study and sleeping habits at the age of 9. All that gore and scantily clad bots at such a young age, I’m surprised I got away with it.

I remember I came across a server with nude bots and I was thinking about how much trouble I was going to be in... and then I downloaded the same skins and installed them on my computer the next day and played with naked bots.

Tbh, i kinda agree with this in a non-sarcastic way. Like even the most perfect games have shitty things in them that could've been an easy fix. Of course nit-picky people are pretty intolerable though. "I don't approve of the plot twist, i would've much preferred [random trope] to fit [my specific version of the lore]". But then the other side of the spectrum is even worse, blindly defending a game and calling out people for pointing out valid issues. Like cmon man, even I didn't like the weapon-switch system in botw.

level 3

My only complaint about botw weapon switching (I'm about a week into the game now) is that I wish it would automatically switch to the next weapon when the one you are holding breaks. Otherwise it's not that bad.

level 4

I dunno...I could see that getting irritating if you auto switch to a fire rod or something in the midst of a messy fight and break it by accidentally smacking some monster in the head with it.

But yeah, I'm a few weeks in and don't have any serious complaints on it. I don't have a lot to compare it to though, so perhaps I just don't know what I'm missing.

Maybe it's because I was already more familiar with the series, but DS3 definitely seemed like the easiest installment.

level 2

I don't think the game was actually easier than its predecessors, but the QoL changes (eg you can actually hit enemies in a hallway) and improvements to the combat system made it more friendly to play.

level 3

Yeah, that's a fair comment. Obviously it's not an easy game, but as you said, your strategies are more effective when your tools work the way they are supposed to.

I would also say that the world design seemed a bit more intuitive - I never found myself to be lost, or have gone the entirely wrong way, like in DS1

Me too, the hyped difficulty wasn't quite fair, and caused some confusion. If you are stuck, then you might just be going the wrong way. Unless it's Anor Londo. F*ck you archers.

Except for that Dark Souls is all about learning to fight smarter, not harder. And fashion. Actually... Dark Souls is about dress up, and also some fighting.

I also quit the game for about 6 months because I tried to beat the graveyard after leaving the asylum. I mean, I chalk it up to games conditioning me to take the most obvious path...

level 5

I get the feeling that that's a big part of why the difficulty was hyped as much as it was, when really the difficulty of that area is meant to say "hey maybe go somewhere else", so it became a self feeding cycle of people assuming that was just how hard it was meant to be, then telling others it's super hard, so they think that's where you're supposed to go, and then telling more people how hard it is.

It's definitely a difficult game, but not nearly to the height that some people said.

level 6

A lot of older RPGs had that. Instead of locking you out of an area until you had Special Key #7 or had watched Cutscene #42 it was just filled with hard to kill monsters that discouraged you from travelling there until you were capable of taking them on.

For a more modern example, the Deathclaws between Good Springs and The Strip in New Vegas.

level 7

Man on my subsequent play throughs I loved to run past the cazadores and deathclaws to get to that area so much faster. I really liked how it didn't box you away from that path with invisible walls

No kidding. People fucking over hype the difficulty of Dark Souls way too much.

It's definitely a challenge, but that's a byproduct of making the game rewarding and compelling to play.

The hardest part of the game is that there are certain mechanics and stats to deal with that you have to read a guide on or else the game's a lot more challenge.

Endurance - Pumping points into it first, followed by levelling Health. Both make the game considerably easier.

Block % damage absorption. Understanding that a 100% Block makes dealing with enemies so much simpler helps so much.

DS 3 and Bloodborne were better in that they removed a lot of the unintuitive dependency on those things. Block for DS3 was weaker and Stamina not the be all end all first stat to max.

That's part of DS1's charm was how interconnected the world was. The problem was the lack of direction, even talking to NPC's wasn't all that helpful for directions. I really enjoyed how you could see the next area if it would be visible, or how the different hidden elevators made a real transport system with the pseudo hub world.

That's because 3 wasn't an open world. It is a linear game that occasionally has a branching paths that tend to lead to dead ends. The level design itself was pretty good tho.

level 5

Dark souls 1 had a lot of branching psths and was much more open than DS3 but i wouldn't call it an open world, its definitely still fairly linear.

level 6

Do you consider metroidvania games to have an open world?

The world design in 1 reminds me alot of those types of games. After the tutorial area i believe there are 7 diffirent bosses you could go fight (if you have the master key). The world is also very interconnected which later games lacked.

I feel pretty confident in calling DKS1 open world.

I ended up fighting a giant spider spitting lava, with tits, then through literal hell, where previous BOSSES attacked on groups like regular enemies, only to find a door sealed by god that forced me to go BACK through everything.

My only complaint about dark souls 1 is that I'll never get that first playthrough ever again. 2 and 3 were both to much of the same honestly, still good but nothing will ever be as good. I even played demon's souls long before, so still familiar but still very different.

I would also say that the world design seemed a bit more intuitive - I never found myself to be lost, or have gone the entirely wrong way, like in DS1

That's an issue I had with DS3. Except for a single spot (which you're almost guaranteed to miss the first time you're there, and when it's time you're teleported there), the whole game is very linear. You go from area A to area B, then to area C, then to area D, etc etc, and there are only small or almost medium dead-end spokes sticking out (except one big spoke, the Cathedral), and two medium spokes at the end of the line. The map looks like a centipede.

Meanwhile, DS1 was insanely interconnected at the start. It was more like a ball with nails sticking out of it. The first 4 or 5 areas were interconnected in a way that allowed you to reach any given area from any other given area, and later a 6th area opened up.

You could always hit enemies in a hallway. Just can't use a sword with a horizontal sweep that'll bounce off the wall. If you try to do that it's not going to work in any of the games, DS3 included.

Wait what? The enemy could hit through walls but you couldn’t? What kind of bullshit is that?

level 6

The enemies you would fight in narrow corridors were half and half actually.

The first hard enemy you met (in my opinion) were the parrying skeleton-knights that square up and use their shield and parry ability to teach you patience. They basically just stab or wait on you, so it's not smart to swing wildly.

the other side of the argument is any other armed enemy that actually has their weapon just clip through everything to continue their animation and hit you. You however will strike wall if it collides...sometimes you can watch your sword not hit the wall yet and it will tink.

It should but if you're in a hallway you likely aren't going to be swinging in a way to hit the wall, yes that's what your character does but when that's the only movement it has it doesn't really work and you can definitely swing a sword without hitting a wall in a hallway.

For the second half...I dunno. I found the second half easy. Him em until they die with maximum prejudice...

Honestly, I find 3 the hardest. It feels like the enemies are playing Bloodbourne while the player is still playing Dark Souls 1.

level 3

Sister Friede especially. That bitch is way faster than she should be.

level 4

She feels like she was designed by someone who never worked on Dark Souls before (maybe Bloodbourne). She's the only boss in the entire franchise that has multiple enemies (her and her dad) sharing the same health pool. Sure, there are plenty of bosses who share the health bar, but she shares health pool. In Phase 2 you can completly ignore her, smack her dad, and she'll fall over without laying a finger on her. Also her excessive speed (even medium weapons are way too slow to hit her, especially in Phase 1), unblockable combos, powerful AoE magic, she's obviously designed with faster Bloodborne in mind.

level 5

her and her dad

You're taking the 'Father' in 'Father Ariandel' too literally.

level 5

What's the difference between a health pool and a health bar and a health spa?

level 6

If two enemies share a health bar then killing one of the enemies only removes a portion of a health bar.

If two enemies share a health pool, that means killing one enemy kills both of them.

I started Bloodborne recently and I really hate the way it handles healing items. If I die to a boss where I used all my blood vials then before I can fight the boss again I have to farm up a bunch of blood echoes to buy more vials, instead of just respawning with full estus and trying again like in Dark Souls. Is there something obvious I'm missing or is this just how the game is?

level 4

Yeah that's pretty much it. A lot of farming is required, but I think there are some decent quick runs like the beginning of Forbidden Woods that only take like 5 minutes once you have them memorized. Bloodborne was the first game I played in the Souls series, and going to Dark Souls games after seemed way easier with Estus and being able to block even.

Every souls game (and bloodborne) is easier than cuphead. The difference is that in cuphead you can just instantly jump back into a fight where as in souls you have that long trek back and have to clear everything again.

  • For fucks sake, people. I'm not comparing something like Horizon 3 4K and some shitty game. I'm comparing a game that is popular because it looks amazing and something like Odyssey, the best game I've ever played but it's only in 900p.

Ok but the PC version suffers DEBILITATING lag spikes. Game advertises 60 fps but spikes down to 59 fps with 150,000,000 units on screen. UNACCEPTABLE. BOYCOTT.

Amen. I hate hearing people cry about that shit. Good games over perfect graphics.

After playing every single Dark Souls, Demon Souls, and Bloodborne I'd argue Cuphead is tougher. At least in the Souls series you can farm up and still win even if you didn't git gud. In Cuphead it's either git gud or gtfo, haha.

level 2

Wow really? I never played a Souls game because Bloodborne made me wanna spike my controller through the floor but I love Cuphead right to death.

Are they just different kinds of difficult?

level 3

Very different I think. Bloodborne was pretty easy for me and I still haven't finished Cuphead. I could feel my blood pressure rising playing that game and I grew up on the NES.

It’s punishing. Always sleep in the meadow, and make sure to pet the deer!

Maybe if game companies didn't rush to release AAA title games in shit condition or ruin them with greedy mechanics I wouldn't complain about them

Holy fuck, if you're gonna repost, at least edit it to make it accurate and put Ghosts and Goblins and Ninja Gaiden 3 in there.
