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.

Dark Souls was fun. Hopefully Dark Souls 3 is better than 2.

You "had fun" in that you wanted to justify the time you spent.

Or maybe I just had fun while actually playing the game?
Maybe I had fun when I finally overcame the difficulty?

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.

Maybe your system has something wrong with it.

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.
>>
>>324304896
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

>>324305691
>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
Poise
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.
Interesting NPCs
Claymore
Being able to use bonfires to level up / repair equipment without being dependant on a NPC
Challenging bosses
Non-human enemies
Non-retarded hitboxes
Pyromancy and lightning having their own scaling


>Things I want from Dark Souls 2 to be back on Dark Souls 3:
Soul Vessel
Functional multiplayer
New enemies / items / dangers in NG+
Power stance
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.
Hexes
NPCs clearly losing their sanity thanks to the curse ("who are you?")
Gyrm Greathammer
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?

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

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

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.

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.

>>324309763
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.

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.

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.

That sounds crazy short, most people would spend well over twice that long. Did you choose the master key?

Not OP, but if this is your first time playing the game then you certainly did not beat the Gargoyles after 3 hours.

>>324303035

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.

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.

>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.
Baka.

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.

>umm idk about you guys but I only like games that have no learning curve and checkpoints every 3 minutes
Also Ulysses is one of the greatest works of literature. You're filth.
