I'm playing SotFS for the first time, without ever playing vanilla DaSII. So far, there's nothing that's made me question the enemy placements. Except for the fact that they put endless exploding mummies in every level that they couldn't figure out a decent challenging mob for
DUDE LET'S PUT A FUCKTON OF ENEMIES CLUSTERED TOGETHER EVERYWHERE
PLUS THEY ALL HAVE FORWARD-ADVANCING MULTI-HIT COMBOS THAT STUNLOCK YOU AND CAN TAKE OUT YOUR ENTIRE HEALTH BAR
THEY CAN ALSO RECOVER FROM A HIT AND THEN ATTACK FASTER THAN YOU CAN SWING CONSECUTIVELY, INTERRUPTING ANY CHANCE YOU HAVE AT DELIVERING MORE THAN ONE HIT IN A ROW UNLESS YOU CIRCLE STRAFE BEHIND THEM SINCE THEY TURN SLOW AS FUCK
RANGED ATTACKERS EVERYWHERE, TOO YOU DON'T HAVE ANY ACTUAL EFFECTIVE RANGED OPTIONS, BY THE WAY, THE GUNS ARE JUST FOR SHOW AND THE UNRELIABLE "PARRY" THAT'S A WASTE TO USE ON MINOR ENEMIES, INCONSISTENT ON BOSSES, AND SPAMMED BY EVERYONE IN PVP IN THE HOPES THEY GET LUCKY
>>323670521 >Open chest in that place with the 3 Stooges boss >Pursuer stabs me up the butthole. >Come back and parry the fuck out of him Fuck Pursuer is a shitty boss but sometimes he's fun to fight with unorthodox builds.
>>323673387 It's just to show how spamming tons of enemies without any rhyme or reason isn't new to DS2. Izalith also has you fight those fire breathing statues by the dozen and a whole lake of dragon asses.

Same thread. Same posts.
Yeah, DaS2 is fucking mediocre.
People still claim picking enemies off with a bow or pulling them into a bottleneck and then baiting attack - stepping back - stabbing ad infinitum like a true homosexual is advanced thinking Yeah, maybe, but it's not fun. So fuck you.
Or maybe you overleveled like the pussy you are and then shitpost here saying it was easy as fuck.
It was a decent game but nowhere near as memorable as Dark Souls 1.
Sure, DaS1 had some bullshit deaths too, but at least you didn't get fucking stunlocked by 5-hit combos that track.
Melee, the playstyle the game is designed around, is the worst way to play it. If DaS1 was "Block, the Game", DaS2 is "Block until enemy does that one shitty attack, giving you an opening"
>>323673718 Those guys are the worst because it's a straight DPS race. If you're not using the best gear for any reason it's the most difficult fight in the whole game. One of the things I hated most about DS1 is that your gear makes such a huge difference. Especially poise, with enough poise you can just drink through bosses wailing on you and come out with more HP than you started with.
>>323674893 Let me rephrase, then. Try playing the game without tediously waiting for block counters. Don't be fucking Woolie, or the archtypical tower shield scrub who maintains a death grip on L1 any time something looks at him.
Legitimately get good at the game. Crying about dying for getting stunlocked by a horde is pathetic, you deserve it, it was your fault.
I think people forget about how fucking annoying Dark Souls 1 was.
The first half of Dark Souls 1 was amazing, with beautiful levels and fun environments (mainly). But as soon as you beat Ornstien and smough, you have to go through 4 new areas, ALL of which are complete fucking shit.
>Seeth library and crystal caves are an annoying fucking maze with enemies attacking you from afar and slipperly invisible walkways which enemies shove you off, and of course an (almost) unavoidable death because fuck you.
>Catacombs are full of annoying fucking respawning enemies unless you use a specific type of weapon, which is annoying as shit, and an area that's fucking dark as shit and filled with skeleton dogs and bonewheelskeletons, a piss easy boss, and then both annoying boss that makes you take damage just to enter the room. Also, bonewheel skeletons.
>New londo is FUCKING ANNOYING with fucking ghosts that attack through walls and can't be damaged without using items/certain weapons. Also there's like 2 fucking hundered of them because fuck you. Here, have a DPS battle where depth perception fucking sucks, and takes away one of your ring slots.
>Lost izalith. Fucking really? You're going to make lose a ring slot, and give me shit tons of lag, and made the boss far away with only one hidden bonfire, AND make an absolutely shit RNG boss that can't be beaten by any sort of fair means, and even if it could it would still be shit?
It's amazing. Literally every fucking area was complete garbage.
Of course, that's like my opinion man, I'm sure lots of people enjoy them, but I honestly hated the second half of the game.
>>323675250 >get summoned by host >proudly displaying his great shield, never letting go of that L1 button >keeps getting guard broken because he never lowers his shield to recover his stamina >keeps getting guard broken because he swings two or three times and still expects to be able to shield against a barrage of attacks after that I had way more fun using a semi-light shield with 90% damage reduction in DS2. Can't just block forever and some damage still leaks through.
>>323675431 I kinda liked Dooks archive's, mostly because of how you could use the stairs to manipulate your environment, similar to Sunken King. The catacombs area was pretty neat and having to slam down the necromancers was a stressful but cool mechanic. New Londo can go fuck itself, Lost Izalith can go fuck itself twice
>>323675582 Another pretty good strategy there is to either use fire arrows to detonate barrel guys when they're near their targets or climbing down the ladder long enough for everyone to gather at the base so a single explosion kills pretty much everything at once
