I am intentionally avoiding spoilers and purposely not watching gameplay or commentary.

I am also setting my hopes extremely low and automatically going to presume the game is shit. After das2 I am very cautious to get hyped. But if I set my expectations incredibly low, I should enjoy the game even if it's a little good.

Some things I want in a Souls game but have never gotten:

1. Reduced grinding and much less RNG for farming. It's never fun to have to spend who knows how long trying to get a 10% drop rate item that will help you upgrade your weapon. It takes your personal control away from your game and leaves it up to the whims of the RNG gods.

2. Visually-amazing spells. Just look at Dragon's Dogma and make the game's spells look like that. I'm sick of Generic Fire Ball Variant #150 and Pew Pew Soul Arrow Variant #409.

3. Bosses that don't have blatantly stupid and obvious blindspots. I should not be able to beat a boss by hugging its ass (like Asylum Demon), or sidestrafing it (like Pursuer) or counter-rolling it (like Maria).

4. Finally, please give us interesting weapon visual effects when we imbue them with elemental properties. For example, a Fire Longsword should constantly be on fire. Similarly, a Crystal Halberd SHOULD LOOK LIKE IT HAS A TON OF CRYSTALS COMING OUT OF IT instead of looking like a generic Halberd.

Stuff I'm excited for
> Bosses with phases (like Bloodborne)
> Weapon Arts
> Mana bar
> Archery being viable to be more than a rarely used tool for cheesing.

Stuff I'm hoping for
> Good level design and world connectivity (with Myazaki directing I'm optimistic)
> hopefully less useless upgrade paths than DaS1
> Functional NetCode (I really dislike being backstabbed while I am standing behind my opponent....), this is unlikely.
> A finished, not rushed game.
>>
>>323155740
Souls games always have absurd and large swords, although they mostly appear near the end, and the fashion looks to be really good this time around.
Also has the bonus of not even needing defense, as long as you're good you can just wear whatever looks good and say "Fuck stats"
>>
>>323155980
>I really dislike being backstabbed while I am standing behind my opponent...

backstabs whiff in 90% of cases in das3 from my experience with the nt

You can get a great sword at the beginning of DS2.

>>323155980
>Bosses with phases (like Bloodborne)

Bosses have had phases since Dark Souls 1. Did you forget that Manus has certain spell attacks that he only uses once he's at half health.

Did you forget that later on in Dark Souls 2 Fume Knight goes in angry solo sword mode with unique moves once he's down 50 percent? Or similarly with Velstadt and The Last Giant?

I love the look of these huge weapon arts, but I'm pretty sure they're going to be basically useless. All of them take more than a second of charging up, cost mana and stamina, and don't look like they do anything you actually need to do.
They're never going to hit anyone who's actually awake in pvp, and I don't see any reason to use them over normal attacks in pve. I'm afraid they're going to be slightly better black knight weapon R2s.

I wasn't wild about Dark Souls II
I really grew to love Bloodborne

Could go either way, the reasons why I didn't like DaS II that much were just artsy bullshit so gameplay wise I expect to like the third game as always.
>>
>>323156459

They work like BB charged attacks where you can release any time during the charge attack. Couple this with the massive hyper armor you can probably catch people who try to dodge around you or continue holding the charge button and out trade them.

Obviously won't work against passive estoc turtle jap faggots but nothing works against that.

this has been in developement since before bb iirc

Because DS1 was 2011, DS2 was 2014 and DS3 is 2016.

>>323155450
great swords have always been for mobs

leave the pvp weapons to the fags with the giant axes and the katanas etc.

I avoided spoilers.
What I want, but certainly not expect to happen, is that enemies have some counter to laming with ranged weapons or at least try to run to a safe spot instead of standing there and waiting to die to 50 shots.

Characters: Just give me Patches and similar characters as always, IDGAF.

The weapon arts do? That's pretty good news, hopefully it means they've actually put the work in to make them usable.

You're sure you aren't just thinking of the charged R2s themselves though?

>>323156463
According to some interview or something, longbows are going to be strong but require you to be stationary to fire, and might have a charged shot thing. Shortbows are fast and can fire after rolling, but do less damage per hit.
I thought I had a webm of the bow clip from the trailer, but apparently not.

"mostly"
i fuken hated the greatsword in dark souls 2 though. It was so nice looking in 1 then in 2 they just stretched it out and make it look stupid as shit.
>>323156212
I don't really count that, that was reasonably sized. About as long as it is IRL.
>>
>>323155950
Souls can be so funny sometimes.

Like, who would have EVER thought that binoculars (I repeat, BINOCULARS) could break the game the way they did early on in Dark Souls 2 before it was patched?

And who similarly would have thought that Bloodborne would suffer from a memory leak issue early on after release that caused all bosses to go down to zero in terms of difficulty?

You can't make this sort of shit up.

>>323156892
You can't tell me that you didn't grind for Blood Rocks in Bloodborne, or Pure Bladestones in Demon's Souls, or whatever slabs you grinded for in Dark Souls 1 or 2. You can't tell me that having to spend potentially hours to get weapons like Balder Side Sword in Dark Souls 1 is fun.

Not balanced as in too easy? I've done sorcery builds on both DaS 1 and 2 and have found it really easy, both in PvE and PvP (mainly because retards don't know how to avoid homing crystal soulmass). Plus the spells in DaS3 look fast and awesome.

>>323157367
That is what I meant, yes. And I think it'll only get even easier in DaS3, archery included because they keep improving ranged attacks but the enemy AIs remain too stupid to deal with it in any way. I don't think they've fixed because they would've showed it off if they had.

Clearly, PC will be capped at 30fps again, so now it comes down to which game will have the most playerbase?

If there is an FPS cap it will be unlocked day 1 by some modder.

PS4 will probably have less cheaters though. If you have any friends getting it I would just try to get it on the same console as them.

If I've bought a PS4 by April then I could see myself buying it on PS4 first and then maybe the full edition with DLC included for PC whenever that comes out.

Source?

I'm personally getting the PC version for three main reasons:

1. 60 fps. No brainer that this is a must in action games like Souls.
2. Graphics mods that will make the game as beautiful as it can be. Seriously, pic related DESERVES to be played on super high resolutions with graphics mods to perfect it.
3. You'll avoid wasting time grinding for low drop items. Just cheat engine it in. I once wasted 4 hours trying to get Pure Bladestone in Demon's Souls. Never again will I do shit like that.

The only reason why PC would be bad is that there will definitely be more cheaters. But I never worry about that shit because I always play solo and offline.

most of those complains are PvE focused, and I dislike PvE in Das2 so i cant really deny any of those flaws
but at the same time i dont really care about any of these since PvP is the primary reason I play souls games, with DaS2 i simply give myself all the items for my build when i start a new one so i can PvP asap
this is why DaS2 is for me the best souls game sans DeS since that game had the most fun PVP, DaS2 has the most viable weapons and the largest amount of different builds

The core design is identical to Souls, yes the story and world is standalone which is why it bears a different name but it's still very much a part of that style of game

-You have the same stats under different names, you gain a resource from enemies that can either be spent on levels or items
-You have the same combat mechanics but sped up with some new tricks
-You go through a level which ends in a boss that is behind a fog wall
-Instead of telling a direct story you piece it together from dialogue and descriptions
-The UI is identical to Souls

It's a Souls game with a different coat of paint

They were actually really good. Most of them have a couple different moves, so the opponent doesn't know which is coming, if any at all because you can also feint into just a regular attack. You also got hyper armor with the greatsword and mace. The longsword had a guelard break for one of its arts.

Thanks for the (you)

So you're just arguing semantics, that's fine. If a game has the exact same design as something else I'd consider them related but Bloodborne isn't called Blood Souls so I guess it isn't a Souls game, technically.

>>323159000
In Crash you're going through a straight level that has a linear path

In J&D you're exploring an open area and talking to characters, the focus is on exploration and doing different objectives within the level

they are so dissimilar in design I can't believe you chose them for your argument

I haven't played Lords of the Fallen so I can't speak for myself but if you look up the game anywhere the word Souls will pop up 99% of the time. The game apparently uses a lot of the mechanics from the Souls series, such as experience that drops when you die, you have bonfires that replenish your healing items, the combat revolves around stamina management and blocking/dodging, that at least warrants a sticker that says 'souls-like'

can't really say more since I haven't actually played it

I still dont understand why DaSII was suddenly hated 6 months later. I remmeber the initial hype and the few threads complaining about the lighting but I still enjoyed it a lot, sunk about 180 hours into it and only 20 or so were dedicated to PVP. I never bothered with the generals so maybe thats why i missed out on the sudden shift.

I liked it more than Bloodborne though, that game had no replayability until the DLC and the chalice dungeons were total ass

>You were one of the lucky ones, son. That's nothing.

See, that's exactly my point. I was lucky. You, unfortunately, weren't. The RNG gods were being kind to me that one particular time. For some people, they can get a rare drop in 10 seconds from the first enemy you kill that has that specific drop. Some people might take 10 minutes. Some might take 10 hours. Some might take 10 days.

That is the problem with RNG-based item drops. Your ability to get them has nothing to do with your skill. It is completely dependant on the whims of the RNG gods and whether or not they're feeling nice today. It's luck-based. It takes control away from you and gives it to a dice throw.

I really don't understand how ANYONE can enjoy this or defend this.

Yea, it's a pretty good point, rng is fuckin shit. It's just unfortunate that there's not many ways to implement any other method of getting these rare items.
Other than maybe having to kill a specific enemy a specific way to get the drop. But even then, word would get out of how to do it and it wouldn't be rare at all anymore.

bloodborne isn't a souls game

different mechanics looks different, feels different, different story might and only retains some of the basics

might as well call final fantasy 7 - 10 rehashes while you're at it

a re-release isn't a new fucking game you dumbfucks
it's called releasing the same game again and that coincidentally made it better

You can remove the RNG factor completely and still make them hard to obtain. So, for example, let's say you want a super rare item. Like a rare sword. Instead of killing a monster until the RNG gods grant you the rare sword, how about you cut off their tail or horn or break their shells or whatever? At the same time, make it so that doing so is hard.

Like cutting off Kalameet's tail to get the Obsidian Greatsword. Or Seath's tail for the Moonlight Greatsword. It's hard to do, but it has zero RNG involved.

You can do the same for things like Titanite Slabs. Have specific monsters made completely out of Titanite (like the Titanite Demon in Dark Souls 1) and make it so that you have to break certain parts of their body to get the slab.

The purpose isn't to create a barrier, it's to create unique runs. If you get dropped a ridiculous spear, you might change your build around it. By the same token, you can't rely on getting that spear the second time around. Cheat it in if it suits you, but that's not a design flaw.

RNG shenanigans was even worse in DaS2 due to enemy despawning. Weren't able to obtain that item you needed? LOL TOUGH SHIT FAGGOT, BURN AN ASCETIC AND TRY AGAIN. Especially annoying for consumables that you use over and over again

But yeah, alternative methods are better that you bypass the need for random drops, period. Instead of making me grind for some rare item, why not have every piece of armor, weapon, etc available as a placed item somewhere in the world rather than having it rely entirely on RNG? As for hard to obtain usable items like titanite slabs and chunks, why not just have them available (consistently) if doing certain multiplayer stuff like dorkmoons or dickwraiths?
>>
>>323164005

It's a luck-based mechanic. I don't feel any sense of satisfaction or accomplishment spending either 10 minutes or 10 days trying to get a drop for a rare item/weapon.

And if I'm not grinding and suddenly get a super rare item accidentally?

My first thought is: "Man, I'm worried. I hope I haven't drained all my luck for this character so that I can get whatever it is I want later on without spending too much time farming for it."

This luck-based mechanic doesn't make me better at PvE. It doesn't make me better at PvP. It doesn't make me grow as a player. It's just an unnecessary factor of luck and randomness.

This fix was only introduced in scholars of the first sin.
In the original release of DaS2, there was nothing you could do to prevent enemy despawning. Yes, it' fixed now, but that doesn't change the fact that this was not the case when I and the majority of players actually went through the game. This criticism of DaS2 is still valid, although I'm glad they finally fixed it a year later.

Anon I agree with most of what you said but this is retarded. You should know full well that's not how the drops work and if you think something so retarded you have no one but yourself to blame.

I disagree RNG drops should be remove completely, the one thing they do, as the person you responded to said is they make playthoughs unique. You aren't really SUPPOSED to farm for them. That's why sometimes in DaS they would make enemies like the Black Knights who dropped rare shit, not respawn. It's supposed to be a through of the dice every time if you get to playthough the game with the Halberd or BK Sword.

I think what they did in DaSII was dumb though. Any remotely special piece of equipment has to be farmed, sometimes from the same enemy who can drop repeat drops so if you're trying to get an armor set you're fucked. Really, making armor sets outside like a unique helmet, drops was a bad idea unless they were gonna drop the whole set at once.

Honestly, I thought Bloodborne was perfect on this. There were enough stones spread out in the game to easily level one weapon to +10 (2 on the DLC) and another to +9. All weapons were found or the consequence of a 100% drop.

I just hope they don't do shit like the Burial Blade or the Rakuyo and Bloodletter again, placing the weapon at the end of endgame zones, Although I got a shitload of use out of my Burial Blade by ignoring every side path and rushing to it, because it was buyable only after Gehrman, I was very overleveled when I did shit like Cainhurst and Upper Cathedral Ward.

One that fix is new so not everyone knows it became a thing (by the way it became a thing BECAUSE people complained) and not only that it doesn't even solve the problem. There are still special phantoms and enemies who only spawn under certain conditions or don't re-spawn even when in the covenant.

The RNG drops in DaSII are excessive, stop trying to convince yourself otherwise just because you're autistic enough to enjoy farming.
>>
>>323164871

That's fucking retarded shit, and yes, it does block content. Normally when you create a second or third character, you want to make a build based around a certain weapon. Making it so that weapon is a random drop, means you're locked out of that particular direction until the RNG gods decide to aid you. If it's a rare drop from a fucking non-respawning enemy, you have to restart the game in order to make that build.

It's a shit fucking way of doing things, mate.
>>
>>323165050
I disliked the idea of Burial Blade which you can only get by beating the "final" boss. I was kinda OK with Rakuyo though because really if you beat Amelia, then get to the DLC and beat up to Maria that's all you have to do to get it. Also I liked how you obtained it and its relationship with the lore.

>>323164871
> You should know full well that's not how the drops work
I was basically talking about the game's version of the Desire Sensor. That's what I was describing. That's just RNG being evil. To quote one definition I found from a quick Google search, the Desire Sensor is: "A gamer superstition. The Desire Sensor detects what rare item, or event you are farming for, and prevents the game from giving it to you. Only when you forget about it, or no longer need it will the item drop, or event happen."

>I think what they did in DaSII was dumb though.
It's basically the same RNG-based spirit of making playthroughs unique taken to a much more idiotic extent. I'm not gonna argue that the RNG is much worse in Dark Souls 2, but at the same time, it's just a dumber form of RNG that was already in previous Souls games.

If you want to have randomness, fine. But it should not be in things like RNG item drops. You already get tons of randomness through PvP. You never know when you're gonna get invaded and what the invader will bring to the table.

Question to anyone who played the PTR:

Okay, in DaS2 is you R1'd right after rolling (while locked onto a target), it wouldn't redirect your attack in the direction of the tagrte you were locked on to, it would send you way off target attack out to the side somewhere.

Does DaS3 have the old system from DaS1 and Bloodborne, where if you R1 after rolling, the attack actually goes towards the thing you're locked onto?

This shit was aids in DaS2.

>yes, it does block content.
Yes, it does, I didn't disagree. I said you were retarded for blaming the game for you not understanding how luck works in the context of the game. Your luck can't "run out" I was calling you retarded for saying that. I agree 100 percent, it does block content. That's not what we disagree on, you insist that's automatically bad, I do not.

Blocking content is what a game should do. Are you saying every weapon, spell, armor and ring should be available from the start? But if not aren't they blocking content? Of course they are, because it's a fucking video game, you block content. That's what you do. You block content till people meet certain requirements. Again, your argument should not be "they block content" because blocking content isn't inherently bad. If they didn't REALLY hide some shit there would be no excitement from fining rare shit. If you had read my post carefully you would have realized I agree with you that DaSII took it too far.

One problem I feel is you sound like you look shit up, newsflash guy, we don't all do that. Even on second playthoughs. I didn't even know most of the rare drops I was missing. You say "you have to restart the game" really is someone holdign a gun to your head an saying "YOU MUST USE THIS WEAPON" No? Then you agree you don't HAVE to. You choose to because you've chosen to use a specific weapon. What weapon are you even referring to, I can't even think of a weapon early enough in the game that restarting would be faster than burning a bonfire aesthetic aside from maybe the Old Whip but it's not a drop and is an example of a rare secret weapon that I enjoy the existence of and difficulty to obtain.

There you go, the reason I called you retarded. You are blaming a game for your own retarded superstitions. Again, you don't have to believe this, there is literally no merit to it, you choose to because it FEELS true. So fuck you. Keep your superstitions and feelings to yourself, they aren't criticism to be leveled against the game. Stop being a retard and this isn't a problem anymore, it's never been a problem for me because I'm not a superstitious moron who gets anxious then blames the game for it.

>If you want to have randomness, fine. But it should not be in things like RNG item drops.
Explain. I can' argue against your points if you just present things as fact and don't explain. How was it taken "to an idiotic extent"? What level of uniqueness in playthoughs is possible? Honestly the issue here is you want to be able to make any character you want from the start of the game, I don't agree the player should have that power. I enjoy randomness to playthoughs no invasion are not enough. See that's what I mean by no argument. You just say "invasions are enough" even though they have nothing to do with what were talking about. Ok dude "Invasions are not enough is my argument". Focus on talking about RNG buddy, you're all over the place and I can't even respond to it.

I'm not the guy talking about spending luck, mate. He replied to you above.

>Are you saying every weapon, spell, armor and ring should be available from the start?

No. I think every weapon, spell, armor and ring should be available to players able to overcome the challenge to get it, not through dumb luck. Blocking content isn't putting up in game obstacles, it's preventing the player from accessing the content.

None of the equipment in Bloodborne is blocked to a player that wants it, but not all of it is easily attainable either. I'd rather have a frustrating encounter like the well for the Rakuyo, than have it as a 10% drop on defeating Maria. One encourages you to up your game and come up with strategies, one fucks you out of content for absolutely no good reason.

>I didn't even know most of the rare drops I was missing. You say "you have to restart the game" really is someone holdign a gun to your head an saying "YOU MUST USE THIS WEAPON" No? Then you agree you don't HAVE to.

No, you fucking moron. What happens is you lose motivation to play because that particular way you wanted to experience the game isn't available to you.

Jesus fucking Christ, chill the fuck out. The Desire Sensor is used in RPGs and games that have plenty of RNG for loot. Nobody actually believes it exists the way eagles or monkeys or butterflies exist. Chill.

Anyway, the difference between the randomness of PvP/online and the randomness of item drops is that you can simply turn off the randomness of PvP/online by simply going offline. You can choose to relinquish or maintain control of your game by the simple click of a WiFi router button. If people want that, fine. I'm not one to enjoy PvP/coop, so I never turn online on in my game.

In contrast, the randomness of item drops is completely out of your control. You can't choose to turn it on or off. You have to cheat to bring control back into your hands. Otherwise, it's just giving the player less control and leaving things to the RNG dice.

OK well that's your own special definition so don't get mad at me that you can't express your ideas properly. "Blocking content" means "blocking content" it does not mean "blocking content behind luck based challenges" which I know understand is what you take issue with and again, if you read my post you'd see I agree.
>No, you fucking moron. What happens is you lose motivation to play because that particular way you wanted to experience the game isn't available to you.
And as I pointed out this will only happen to you if you look shit up and insist on being a min max faggot. I already asked and you wouldn't answer, what weapon are you talking about? Every really rare weapon I can think of has a less rare counterpart that is usually exactly the same bar slight stat differences. In other words, if you really wanna play through with a Katana you can, it might take a while to find teh Berserker Blade or the Blacksteel Katana but if you wanna use a Katana you can with the only downside being slightly less damage. Your argument is weak because you agree people shouldn't just get whatever weapon they want at the start but then your argument here is "What if you can't play how you want from the start".

Also dude I agree DaSII went too far I just think you an the other guy are pussies because you're crying about not being able to get your precious Blacksteel Katana whose black blade is ever so much more elegant. Like seriously faggot, enough of this vague, hypothetical bullshit, start naming me some weapons you can't get easily and have no common counterpart.

Neither of those is necessary. When I first got A Call Beyond, I wanted to make an arcane build, but my character then was dex/bt focused. The way that it's set up, I can always get ACB if I play through the Upper Cathedral Ward, and can make my build. No looking up or min/maxing necessary. Now if I got a Black Knight Greataxe on my dex run, I better fucking pray that bitch drops on the second, otherwise I'm shit out of luck and have to either restart the game or play with a different weapon.

Really how did you discern this? Because nothing else in his post is a valid argument against RNG drops which he was trying to form an argument against. Without that line his argument in that post falls apart because without that line he can't turn the excitement from getting an unexpected rare drop into a bad thing which is essential to him proving "RNG is evil" (his exact words) and has no benefit.

You didn't read very carefully but in reality we both know you probably are him anyway so that's probably why.

i played a lot of dark souls 1, spent like a hundred hours just enjoying it alone, then i watched pvp videos and wanted to do that, so i had to make a new character every fucking time i saw something cool that emarrel did and it took a long ass time to get to the build, try it out for an hour, get bored and find a new build.

i got really good at pvp, i used to wonder how the fuck people could have so many fucking souls and humanities but after a day or so in oolacile and doing honoraburr duerls in undead burg i suddenly found myself at 5 gorillion souls and googly eyes manatees.

after a while i decided to get into cheat engine, it was really sketchy but i got it to work, best time of my life.
this was around the time when pewdiepie did his videos on dark souls and it injected a lot of new blood into the game, invasions was instant and it was glorious to chase poor drake sword using scrubs around parish while my body was scaled down so that i looked like a skinny skeleton and i would have this hotkey where i could teleport every single enemy mob right on top of my head as well as the host.

it was great to have them try to wade through an ocean of undead mobs, trying not to die while i did the trident dance and ran around with two skeleton wheels.

i'd give people slabs and shit if they could get through my gay ass trials.

man, i miss dark souls 1.

I'm expecting rage-inducing hitboxes, annoying pvpers that min-max stupid sets to be overpowered and spend eight hours a day invading, boring level design that allows players to cheese 99% of the enemies in the game, and a later level enemy or two thrown into a shitty area near the beginning as a boss?
>>
>>323170293
Most people don't joke about that when having an argument about the fastest way to get the pot to boil either.

Also welcome to the internet, where no one knows your tone. Assuming someone is gonna know you made a "joke" in the middle of an argument is down right retarded. Especially when you ask them three items to explain how its relevant an they just keep explaining the concept and not how its relevant.

Also that's bullshit because I said I understood it was a joke and that because of that it wasn't relevant and you insisted it was and when asked how you just said "It's a joke man". I think you actually have mental problems if you don't see the issue here.

I prefer the ability to direct attacks at different enemies while staying locked on to one. If you want something different then that's fine, but that doesn't make the system bad.

>DS2 is restrictive as fuck

DS2 is the opposite. It adds more options, but it forces you to learn and deal with the changes if you want to git gud.

Thats obscene. Im hoping it remains viable but that's the level of damage that Greatbows in DS2 caused. Im guessing because of the stupid reduced health summons/invaders have,.

I had an Archer in DS2 but by the DLC missions it began to be less and less viable for dealing even with mobs.

>>323170932
>Why would you think otherwise?
Because if this scenario is actually comparable to ours the two individuals would be having an argument, just as we were. When people argue, their town is more aggressive. Now, since I can't hear your tone on the internet, I assumed it stayed the same, why would it change mid argument? Especially when the next thing you say supports your argument (if you think it's actually true).

So in this imaginary scenario two people are angrily arguing over he fastest way to get the pot to boil and one of them says, in an argumentative tone, not a joking one, "Yea, well we shouldn't watch it because a watched pot never boils" Yes I would probably ask him if he were serious, just a I did to you. When I asked if you were serious in thinking that was a good argument you explained the concept to me, how was I to take this if not a "Yes".

Besides this is all bullshit because you did mean it seriously because it was essential to your argument that no matter what RNG is evil even when getting unexpected drops. If that's not true why did you use it as an argument? No, it's actually not a joke if you say it in the middle of an argument in response to someone else's argument.

If you think it is you suck at making jokes.

>>323170775
I wasn't really talking about the ability to swing away from your lockon target.
Stuff like only being able to turn ~90 degrees between attacks with faster weapons, the dead zones on the controller, having to wait after rolling in a direction to attack in another direction, rolling always changing your characters facing direction in general, the neutered spell and throwing free aim, etc
I don't like the change to the way lockon works, but I can see the potential benefits to it to people who don't want to be locking on and off a lot, or dealing with the camera controls while fighting. It can be a hassle, with people switching grip styles and shit to manage all the necessary inputs. If DaS3 allows both its the best of both worlds, although I expect better players will tend towards DaS1's system preferring either is perfectly valid.

The various other changes though, all they do is reduce options. There's no depth added when you remove something. Changes like being able to cancel attacks with rolls more easily add depth, forcing you to use the binoculars if you want to cast a spell without locking on does the opposite, and the game has a lot more changes like the latter than the former mechanics wise.
>>
>>323154857

>>
>>323170775
>but that doesn't make the system bad
The system is bad from a design standpoint though. In DaS1 locking on stays locked on, all attacks direct to that target, unlocked gives you full freedom if you want to go for boss limbs etc.

Both do their actual job, in DaS2 locking on is simply broken by design, as your attacks don't direct to the actual locked on target after rolling.

You're also frozen in place while in an attack animation in DaS2, where as you can actually turn in DaS1 to bait.

It's simply poorly design in DaS2.

Well, apparently, if my memory is correct, they've been working on it since around when Dark Souls 2 was being developed.

Yes, strange, right? So IIRC, FROM has basically planned Dark Souls 2, 3 and Bloodborne at the same time. 2 and BB began development first, then 3 began development before 2 and BB were even finished.

FROM are a bunch of overworked employees, I think.

>>323173060
The only game that has minimal spoilers in trailers is Bloodborne and Demon's Souls. Dark Souls 1 and 2 had plenty of spoilers for bosses. Dark Souls 3 had that giant tree boss in a trailer from 2-3 weeks back. It also spoiled what looked to be a humanoid giant boss with you on a bridge in an earlier trailer from a couple of months back.

No, I'm not. I find it beyond disrespectful to make such a shit brained argument (and as I went over numerous times IT WAS an argument not a joke, it was essential to the point you were trying to make) then try to pass it off as me not getting a joke. Fuck off. I'm not falling for that bullshit. There has never been a more classic way to get out of saying something retarded "It was just a joke man". No it wasn't.
You made a stupid argument, got caught in it and tried to turn the table sas if I was some kind of asshoel for calling you stupid when you said something stupid. You forced me over and over to ask how it was relevant all the while responding to insult me while not answering my question. Sorry, I see that as very good reason to be offended and given that I've rarely if ever had problems like this in real life, I'm going to go out on a limb and say, no. The issue here is you, who shows a great deal of disrespect to others and doesn't realize it.

Getting mad at someone acting like a clown while they simultaneously insist they are making sound arguments that they won't back up no matter how much they are asked (and insisting that i use too much ad hominem while they use it themselves) is reasonable to me. It always will be because I am far more offended by that behavior than a mere insult from someone I've never met.

does this mean big swords are actually viable instead of completely outclasses by every single dex weapon in the game? (never played ds2 garbage)

Welp. Looks like I won't be touching W3. I can't stand that sort of bullshit. It pisses me off when it happens occasionally in Souls, but at least Souls has what is a weighty combat system.

I'm looking at these webms and it seems like everything is so floaty and attacks have no sense of impact behind them when they land. Can anyone tell me how the combat in W3 or any of the other Witcher games is satisfying? Care to show some good boss fights or enemy patterns that feel satisfying to fight against? I'm trying to be open minded. Maybe those webms are the exceptions. Maybe there's videos out there that show a much kinder light to the Witcher combat.

I love genres like shmups and games like Mega Man because they allow for pixel-perfect spacing against enemy attacks. I can't stand the kind of bullshit you see in those webms.

No it's not, being able to walk through attacks is fucking stupid on multiple levels. Stop baiting retard

Big weapons are generally the GOAT in Bloodborne, even though the gameplay is much faster which could lead you to think DEX would be superior, so yes, big fucking weapons are back my man.

No more pansy shit.

wut. characters practically hover around, they just put a loud "bong" at the end of an attack so it feels heavy

Hyper armor on enemies is awful. In Bloodborne there are so many enemies that I can run up to and R1 stunlock to death, but if I do a charge attack then they go through it and kill me because this time their attack had hyper armor. NEITHER of those things should be happening, let alone with the same enemy. Poise is far more logically consistent and predictable.

On players hyper armor is just a gimme. If you use a Greatsword then you can dodge around like anybody and also tank through attacks. If you want to dodge and use a Greatsword in Dark Souls then you need to learn how to use that thing. Only if you give up dodging and build poise on your character can you tank through attacks like you can with hyper armor.

I played through both Bloodborne and Witcher 3 upon release and i have to say although Bloodborne is my personal GOTY, Witcher 3 is also pretty good but in a different way.

The combat is not as good as BB, neither is the art-direction but both games have an atmosphere that sucks you in.

not even canadian, just saying that you claim to live in the 1st world yet your country doesn't allow muslims.
literally pick one 'cause i can't think of a single 1st world country that doesn't allow immigrants
>>
>>323176817
Never even stayed in canada more than a weekend, but I'm still willing to bet that it's 10x better than whatever shithole you dug yourself out of.
The proof is, you're too embarrassed to even mention your country.

>>323177098
Any country that allows muslims doesn't deserve to be called '1st world' lmao.

i seriously hope so, i kept wanting to use a claymore or zwei in ds1 but i was literally just gimping myself in pve/pvp by attacking at a fraction of the speed of a katana and doing massively less dps

Even that isn't a great representation of the Zweihander that fucking sparks as you slam it into the ground and kicks up a column of dirt.

You shouldn't touch Witcher games unless you like the books or the lore and characters. Everything about them aside from soundtrack, atmosphere and graphics is mediocre to bad.
