>Open world is a term for video games where a player can move freely through a virtual world and is given considerable freedom in choosing how or when to approach objectives, as opposed to other computer games that have a more linear structure.

Dark Souls is open world.

I own them on pc. How do I fix it?

Get them on a console.

Don't listen to >>322775974, both games are objectively superior on PC compared to their console versions.

Althought get DSFix and PVP Watchdog for DaS1 to make it actually playable

>objectively superior on PC

>>
>>322776405
The ability to make the game better is a positive.
>>
>>322776405
DaS1 on PC without mods is still objectively superior on PC compared to on consoles.

Just because console standards are so low doesn't mean it's playable however.

>Playing Dark Souls last night

What the fuck happened? Did the magic Estus fairy stop by? I'm at Sen's fortress and my guy was by the Undead Parish bonfire.
>>
>>322777449
Whenever someone kindles a fire you have a chance to get more estus

>>322775728
But OoT is a streamlined path, DS isn't ma familia.

>>322773430
Currently watching Joseph Anderson's videos about the differences between DS1&2. Pretty interesting, I'd encourage you all to watch it if you like the series.

Overhyped. As far as I like the storytelling/world of the game it have many flaws that people seem blind to(but many are addressed in bloodborn):
-too slow paced(especially DaS 1)
-retarded hitboxes
-game is quiet easy but have retarded learning which acquired for it meme status "git gud"
Overall it is a good game but not that great.

Found this really early in the game, haven't found a non greatshield that has 100% block since and I'm really far in. What was their thinking here exactly? Because I feel like I've had to gimp my character into not wearing the best armours and shields just to get some variety for myself. I feel like the shields and armors could ahve been a lot closer to each other in terms of protection.
>>
Just bought SOTFS off PSN, what am I in for
>>
>>322781829

I think if you upgrade some of the other shields they'll get 100% block.

But the idea of not having all shields have 100% block was to move away from turtling which wasn't exactly present in DaS1 so I'm not sure what the hell the point was.
>>
>>322781829
Royal kite shield is 100 block, weighs way less and upgrades using regular titanite.
>>
The best video game.
>>
>>322782694
well it's like, why would you use the shields that have like 50-70% block? it just seems stupid, and when I chekc the upgrades, the defense upgraded in incraments of like 0.5% so it wasn't nearly enough

Truly.

>>322782908
They want you to stop being a fucking shitter that relies on blocking for the entire game. To coerce you into this they make 100% block shields rare/shitty early game.
>>
>>322776156

>DS1 is full of hackers
>trying to mod DS2 to not look like shit gets you softbanned while actually hackers can roam around free

GG mustards.
>>
>>322783234
You can get 90-95% shields pretty early in the game though. It's more like they didn't want another pic related and just made all the shields with it effects have shittier stats.
>>
>>322782908
Shields with low physical block will generally have strong elemental blocking and/or nice passive effects, like deflecting spells with parry.
>>
>>322783657
And don't forget stability

Lol, turtling is present everywhere, bruh. The fact of the matter is /v/ doesn't like this game because it's too balanced.
>>
>>322773430
Great series (including 2) with a shit fanbase.
>>
>>322784030
this
dark souls combat is way too slow, you have to walk 3 hours to get anywhhere, enemies respawning after bonfires is an annoying and stupid mechanic, can't warp until 75% through the game, etc.

nigger, what? either youre full of bullshit or bating.

>>322784394
Yes, because it sure is fun having to spend twenty minutes backtracking to an NPC to do a single dialogue to advance a quest because you didn't press talk enough time.

Good thing it never takes more than a couple of minutes to get anywhere and NPCs aren't tied to your progress in any way.
>>
>>322773430
Fun game, great atmosphere, gorgeous visuals
Falls off somewhat halfway through but still very good
It's community is 85% dogshit and the way the marketing focused on the difficulty has irreparably damaged the ability to have a public discussion about it

>enemies respawning at bonfires is an annoying and stupid mechanic
The fuck? What do you want to do, go back and refill your estus after every single enemy?
>>

Behold the casual audience
>>
>>322782908
Most early game shields are 80-95% physical block, easily overcome with the Ring of Restoration against anything that isn't a boss fight.
>>
>>322774084
I've always wondered why Saints Row isn't more loved by Tumblr for this. I guess it's because it's missing romances and a dialogue wheel. and the plot isn't that great
>>
>>322775474

Nobody is saying it is. Only that Dark Souls is not open-world.

>>322788163

Is Dark Souls trans?
