This game is the equivalent of forcing yourself to read Ulysses. The only reason you fucks praise it is because you wasted so much time and energy on it.
Or maybe I just had fun while actually playing the game?
Maybe I had fun when I finally overcame the difficulty?
Maybe I enjoyed building and progressing my character?
Maybe I enjoyed the lore and the bossfights?
Hi BB is my first Soul's game. I can play the orignal DaS becuase my pc is shit and ps3 is ruined. Is there any hope for the game to be downloadable on ps4? Also is there any hope DaS3 will be good?
Pic related is the casual filter you speak of.
>/v/ has praised games in the the past that I played afterwards and thought was shit
>play Dark Souls
>only retards with single digit IQ's like you are able to have their opinion of something influenced so easily by others
The game takes like twenty hours on your first playthrough. The only hard fight is O&S. I know because I played it for the first time at Christmas. You should never be running back to a boss more than two or three times at the max.
>No, DaS is shit on PC.
DaS with DSfix is better than PS3/360
>inb4 that tired 2 hour autistic argument about how DSfix doesn't count and its still a shit port
Its a shit port, dsfix counts, and its better than ps3 with, or without, deal w/ it
>mfw i have unironically beaten DS1 5 times
the more shitposting there is about a game, the better the game is
>Its a shit port, dsfix counts, and its better than ps3 with, or without, deal w/ it
pretty much this. weird when people dismiss mods that fix issues and raise the game above its console counterparts.
Not really. The game had that feel of adventure I had when I played old games. I didn't died that much the only bosses that I had some level of difficulty was the Iron Golem and Gwyn
it's a shitty port but dsfix made it run fine for me and i beat the game twice with M&KB at 60fps
doesn't excuse how bad the port was, and dark souls isn't a great game anyway
the DLC content was better than anything from the base game
I've beaten Dark Souls eight times and Dark Souls 2 five times. I'm excited as fuck for Dark Souls 3.
How do I get into reading?
I ordered a bunch of books, but the flow keeps getting interrupted because of my shitty vocabulary. I keep having to look up the definition of a hard word and it kills all immersion.
I know I should've started reading at a younger age, but playing vidya was more fun.
DeS boletaria and 3-1, and maybe a bit of shrine of storms as well as stonefang tunnel before you reach fucking bearbugs
>Nope, still runs like shit on my end.
Not my problem, on my PC it runs 10 times better than on my ps3 while at 4k with forced SSAO and a bunch of other grafix, either upgrade, or fix your issues if you have decent hardware
yep, and there's even a mod to replace 360 prompts if you use ps3 controller, although I didn't need it because I knew the button layout from des
Maybe your system has something wrong with it.
Dark Souls ran fine with my (at the time) 2.4ghz AMD, 4 GB RAM and an ancient GTS250 toaster. Well, I had slowdown in the chasm of the abyss for some reason, but except for that it ran without trouble.
>tfw you enjoyed the hell out of a video game, and nothing /v/ says can stop you
>tfw so many people out there are genuinely, deeply angered at the thought of you having fun with a game they didn't like
>tfw there are people reading this post right now that lie about having played certain games, just so people will listen to them bitch about it for longer
I might barely get to play games anymore, but at least I have fun when I do it.
Same but I still missed some shit
30 hours for DeS as well, only messed a bit with world tendency though
IMO pretty fun games, highly overrated by the fanbase but still fun regardless, not sure why people consider them hard though, but I'll try new game+ soon and maybe I'll be in for a suprise
>mfw playing witcher 3 and thinking of all the spergs on 4chan having a field day hating the game
>mfw my fun is amplified by their tears
Felt fucking great
Try to read fast. Most words aren't important. For example in a conversation you will miss lots of words, but you will fill in the gaps to something that makes sense. Reading is much the same... even with in the word your brain only sees the first and last few letters and fills in the rest.
when I can't infer what a word means from context and can't be bothered to look it up I just make an assumption and keep reading
keep doing what you're doing, or accept your limitations and build up to what you're reading presently
>I'll try new game+ soon and maybe I'll be in for a surprise
NG+ is the easiest run through since you already have levelled up stats and improved gear plus experience playing the game already. Still fun though.
Let's turn this shit troll thread into something else.
>Things I want from Dark Souls to be back on Dark Souls 3:
Pre-Anor Londo level design, along with some of the latter gimmicks like the ghosts or ToG's darkness.
Overall art style
Soul-level based multiplayer
Infinite invasion item
Armor being viable
Having a decent amount of estus charges at the beginning
World designed in a way that it makes sense and you can go everywhere on foot.
Non-ridiculous weapon degradation
Gravelord covenant (make it functional this time)
Magic / Miracles being functional and viable.
Being able to use bonfires to level up / repair equipment without being dependant on a NPC
Pyromancy and lightning having their own scaling
>Things I want from Dark Souls 2 to be back on Dark Souls 3:
New enemies / items / dangers in NG+
Fists and cestus being viable
Slow estus healing
Infinitely-sold healing items (they need to be nerfed to avoid abuse, for example making them expensive)
Losing a % of your max HP when you die
Being invaded as a hollow
Bonfire teleporting available from the very beginning
All the covenants.
NPCs clearly losing their sanity thanks to the curse ("who are you?")
Choosing when to start a new NG cycle even after defeating the last boss.
The Lost Crowns trilogy's level design.
Places being full of enemies.
What do you think?
>You will never have a DS2 that expands on the story of 1 using surviving characters like priscilla the sex, fair lady the cute, andre the gains and so on...
Yeah, but the thing is, I always get super autistic about things like this. I want to experience the book COMPLETELY, no matter how small the detail. Whenever I'm playing an RPG I always have to explore every goddamn corner of the map before I go any further.
>he didn't remove fluffy
Also I only played through it once, got too much shit to play to be bothered by a second run for now
thats the fucking point, it had a great base for a good story with the things found in the world of dark souls 1
and instead of expanding on it properly and making the game a legend they just went with the more of the same le everything repeats...
If you only knew what a sin dark souls 2 was... what we could have had...
Its funny bcuz serbs would join me in the removal of fluffy, y'know its tru ^)
>I feel like that person who claimed portal was their favourite game despite never beating it.
Also I only finished DeS and DaS1 once and I still consider them some of my favourites, and not only that but I dont even care about playing das2/3 or bloodborne, for at least 2 years
>does not remove fluffy
probably not even removing kebab, u a disgrace
r u also anti gun? i bet you are, fucking fluffer
ignorance and goat fucking are not connected
70 years ago I forced an american to live in a cabin on a mountain with nothing but goats to keep him company (+supplies) for 30 years
He ended up fucking them
But maybe its not a valid test since i kidnapped him while he was 14 so he might have had goat romance predisposition that i was not aware of
Best honest with us OP, who did you get stuck on?
You're missing something really cool about those games:
>What would it happen if I decide to use only magic and rapiers?
>What if I only use a fiery claymore while being pantless?
>I'm making a paladin this time
And so on.
You know OP, there's more to this game than the challenging combat that obviously had its way with you. I've yet to play another game with such an amazingly made world to explore.
1/3 nice try
youre probably fond of nigerian grade cock in your bum since you think removing fluffy is ok
And being anti gun? Do you think im not educated or something? Paris would have been better if someone had a gun in there
what are you shitting yourself about
morrowing and all the elder scrolls games can go suck a fat dick
youre still an idiot for not realising how much potential was wasted by not building on 1 and going with the le repeated timelines approach
>yiffer didn't remove fluffy
i'm gonna replay the game just to remove fluffy again right now
Careful expanding your vocabulary, anon. I read all the time growing up, and now have to sometimes dumb down my choice of words. Using words like acerbic or genuflect, not even in everyday language but just knowing what they mean offhand, WILL get you called a smartass.
>at brothers wedding yesterday
>taking pictures cause in wedding party
>start doing some silly ones
>suggest we should all do a daguerreotype, start doing a sad, stern face
>brother and best man chuckle a little, I realize they had no idea what I just mentioned.
I felt like an asshat, and they probably thought i was trying to sound like a faggot.
wot? That's a fucking lot
Messed a lot with pvp I assume?
I think he can do it in 20 if he doesn't bother with ash lake and such, or generally ignore the DLC part
Or maybe he just duped and steamrolled shit
nah just a fluffy remover, trying to do my part :^)
>Losing a % of your max HP when you die
Hated this on dark souls 2, why do you want it back though? I thought it was only a waste of time using your humanities on that, even though that makes you susceptible to invasions in order to get your hp back.
My very first playthrough took me more or less 200 hours. It was my first time playing the game and I went totally blind. No guides, no internet, nothing (except for how to unlock oolacite). It was also a pirate version so no summons.
>forcing yourself to read Ulysses.
Dude I JUST got done sucking dick like, four seconds ago, and you still managed to be gayer than me.
First time playing it
>go in swords swingin
>couldn't take the time to learn enemies attacks, JUST GOTTA GO FAST
>swinging is to slow
>enemies take to much health off
>game is dumb NO YOU RETARD GAME AH SHIT R4RRRRRE3EEEEEEEE
Gave it a second try couple months later
>taking your time rewards you
>learning movesets saves your life
>running the mob gauntlet to end up beating a boss feels so good
Bait thread yes holy shit was I a fag at first.
>removing an innocent girl
is your katana called red river divider?
nah you just dont give a shit about what decisions you make in the game, you in it for the combat
>Messed a lot with pvp I assume?
Not that much. It's just that I did almost every optional content(character arcs, optional areas, some different builds, DLC, tried out covenants etc)and also started the game without nothing about it beforehand.
I'm reading ulysses right now. I'm about to get to the "nighttown" section, which looks really cool, but the chapter right before that is stylized in a way that I don't really understand it. Very abstract. Favourite chapter so far was the one with dignams funeral.
Nothing good was ever easy. Some people get more satisfaction from something that challenges them. Other people are soft little bitches.
not him but my problem with the game was that i had no motivation to keep going forwards, the game starts of so well with it's intro and setting and then it just drops it completely aside from >muh hidden deepest lore
the combat isn't bad but it's nowhere near the innovative realistic skillful masterpiece it is sometimes praised to be , it certainly isn't enough for me to carry the game on it's back
>Struggling with DaS
>Couple hours deep
>Eventually beat Gargoyles
>Suddenly couldn't put the game down
>Played for 3 days straight until I beat it and then put in another 500 hours
DaS is a fantastic game. Fingers crossed that DaS3 will greatly out do DaS2 since it's already more convenient than BB since it's on PC.
You could always not upgrade your vit if you want to run a low hp run, though.
It's not like It is actually hard to gain humanity on ds2. How was it in DeS? Was it hard recovering your full hp back or just about the same as ds2?
I couldn't play the game, even though I played the shit out of 1 and 2.
>nowhere near the innovative realistic skillful masterpiece it is sometimes praised to be
its eons better than other rpgs and "action" rpgs
it was praised because its better than the rest, which it is, by a lot
The point of the game is that you're slowly beating your way through an ancient dead world, It's supposed to feel like everything is holding you back. You go from a lowly undead weakling to literally killing the immortal gods of the world. If the combat was flashy and the leveling was really powerful the game would've been no better than any other shitty unmemorable rpg.
Here you go OP, I think this is more catered to your tastes.
Soulsborne-related shitposting is guaranteed to succeed.
I'm getting ready to collect tons of (you) once dark souls 3 is released by pitting that game and its fanbase against bloodborne and its fanbase.
If it's so frustrating, why not use features like co-op or simply grind a bit?
Dark Souls, particularly without NG+, is simply as hard as you make it. There are many ways to play that trivialize challenge for people who need it.
>the game starts of so well with it's intro and setting and then it just drops it completely aside from >muh hidden deepest lore
This is an issue the fans really are too enamoured with to criticize. Item descriptions are a nonsensical way to tell a story, since you never actually discover things yourself by any intelligible mechanism.
I was a poorfag up until recently, and an anon gifted me this game a long while ago but I couldn't run it until now.
I went into the game blind and had tons of fun, especially exploring the whole game and all the areas, like the Sewers for example, I easily got lost in their and it felt like a real aadventure.
Game isn't hard at all though, I can see why casuals and normalfags think it's hard, since they're accustomed to hand-holding mechanics such as regenerating HP and auto-travel.
The game is very forgiving because of the bonfires. If they made you run through a level in one go, and chopped up the game from open world to levels, it would be rather easy compared to most Fourth gen games.
I think there's a difference between telling a story and just engaging in some worldbuilding for people who are interested in engaging with that kind of thing.
The main narrative of any Souls game given game is largely given through cutscenes and NPC interactions. Yes, it is slight and often subtle. Not subtle in a 2deep kind of way, subtle in the sense that it's simply not shoved in your face. In the modern age of gaming where a lot of players criticize the overemphasis on narrative, I think it's a nice change of pace.
Kind of unrelated, but I'll go ahead and voice my thoughts on Souls stories in general so you understand where I stand:
I think Souls stories are far from complex, heavy, or necessarily meaningful. I think for the most part they're vehicles for the world and atmosphere, giving players a reason to advance through the levels and justifying that progression. The grim tone and themes of the storytelling is used to enhance the tone the game tries to convey, one of fear/desperation/dread/resignation/etc. I think it succeeds in these respects.
I think a lot of the lore/worldbuilding in item description and often vague nature of certain aspects of the narrative is purposely meant to give enthusiasts something to explore and interpret. A toy to engage and enjoy. People who get upset at people doing so and scream AUTISM should probably chill.
just keep it out of the generals
bbg is peaceful and dsg doesn't deserve anything more than their relentless shitposter
>tfw first souls game
i summoned shit for pretty much every boss fight so i made a new character as deprived to do everything again by myself and also to do the dlc for the first time.
i think the only reason why its so hard at the start is because every hit stunlocks you and your stamina pool is so tiny, once you get decent gear the game becomes ez mode. and some of the bosses like quelaag and gaping dragon are actually easier to fight solo for some reason.
Sorry to burst your bubble but I bought Dark Souls after I played, and genuinely enjoyed, Demon's Souls. The series has already cemented itself as a classic for generations to come.
But keep looking for dumb reasons to dislike things that are popular on an anime image board.
Honestly the amount of shitposting about how people don't like what other people like kinda solidifies this to me as aggravating as that is at times.
