Whats /v/ opinion on the Souls franchise and on the Souls like games like Bloodborne and Lords of the Fallen?
Personally i love them, and even though Dark Souls 2 was avarage (for a Souls series game) i'm extremelly excited for Dark Souls 3 and will buy it in a blink of a eye.

Being in a medieval inspired universe, that's a valid form of combat in Dark Souls games.
I actually like that you need to commit to your attacks instead of pressing inputs as fast as possible
I actually feel strongly that BB is a step in the right direction as a whole for DS. From the gampley videos I've seen, it seems like they are implementing a lot of features from BB into DS3, hell it basically looks exactly like a re-skinned BB honestly.
I really prefer how fast paced BB's style is to DS. I went back and replayed DS1 and 2 and it's so fucking slow in comparison.
I just want combat and hitboxes/animations an everything polished to a mirror sheen.
Interesting locales will come, I just want the game to move and react better than me dying by a monster squashing my character that is clearly 2 meters away from it's blade.
From needs to learn how to make their game WORK before trying to make it challenging. I can take deaths caused by me, it only encourages me to get better, but seeing the game flatten my character with a blade that didnt even connect with them just makes me want to cheap it out before it cheaps me out.
I much prefer Dark Souls' methodical combat and I think it offers a more varied and even deep experience. BB is a great one-off, but I'm sad to see how much Dark Souls 3 looks like it.
Like I said, still fun, but we still haven't seen a proper successor to DaS as far as I'm concerned.
Do we have concrete info about how invasions will work ? I just want DS1 invasions, and by that i mean NG invasion with orb instead of cracked eye.
>Do a invasion and rekt some scrub on Sen's Fortress
>Dayum nostalgia flowing
>My SF invader character isn't listed and the one i can invade there just has 3 cracked eyes
It's strange as fuck, the game gave me good memories, but it's hard to bring myself to play, specially the fucking PvE (and i did a SL1 run, so i don't dislike PvE). It doesn't help that i don't remember where to get some specific items and whatnot.
