The Painted World is the only level that comes close to any of the levels from Demon's Souls, and that's only because it was made first when they had money.

Okay.

Thanks for listening.

I just wish there were more places like this and Ash Lake (not even near as playable, but with tons of effort in design and thought put into it) that just makes you stop a wonder for a while.

I was really expecting something close to it in DaS 2, only to be utterly dissapointed.

That makes zero sense as Demon's was made with a shoestring budget.

Painted world is one of the easiest areas though.

New Londo is my absolute favorite.

I really like Blightown too. Yeah, it has serious fps issues at times but it also gives you this feeling that it's not only the enemies that wanna kill, it really is the world that wants to kill you. Very few levels ever achieved that

Demon's and izalith are clearly rushed
>>
>>261218468
Bullshit, im half way through Demons souls and so far pretty much every level has been bland and boring looking apart from tower of latria and the first part of shrine of storms, nearly every part of Dark Souls was more interesting than Demons Souls
>>
>>261218468
Quite the contrary, they made the painted world last or close to the end to shove all the shit in that wouldn´t fit into the main course of the game.

There's a hack that lets you use a crazy set of attacks that weren't implemented for some reason. Possibly meant to be included in future DLC.

It gives you crazy Heihachi move sets including a leg sweep, a fireball and a drop kick.

I'm a level 170 something and I always let them hit me and if they don't do too much damage I switch to thorn set and a wood grain ring to annoy them. it's hilarious getting invaded in the burg by some level 12 shitter doing 3 damage per hit
>>
>>261223064
Blight Town is honestly my favourite, though I played through it on the PC version with no framerate drops.

Just the sheer atmosphere and the feeling of terror as you navigate the vertical maze of dilapidated town not knowing whether you'd be ambushed or not. And if you got invaded, well prepare for the most tense experience ever.

Nearly every level is a straight line if you trivialize it like that. It has as much to explore as any other level.

Yeah I loved that about Blighttown. I always thought it was night out, but then I looked up and realized that its still light out and the darkness iwas just from how deep you were in the ground. I also liked seeing the lower foundation and support structures of the Burg integrated into the level like the bonfire in the cove

Also, as far as those mosquitos, I found the most luck dealing with them by using throwing knives, i carry 99 when i first go down into blgihttown

Nah, Dark Souls had a lot of great locations, enhanced by their connectivity with eachother. DeS meanwhile was a place I remember having a couple of cool buildings but full of bland dark places with little in the way of scenery and especially lacking in variety.

Dark Souls 2 is just all over the place. A few places make me happy but it's a very few. Other places are way too straitforward or way too bland in their design. They tried to do the same all 1 map thing that Dark Souls 1 did, but it was extremely sloppy with geometry making no sense. For example, how the fuck did I reach the top of a windmill and then take an elevator up to a castle right outside a volcano? This shit has no build up.

I'm playing Demon's Souls and while the art direction is even better than Dark Souls, and the Tendency system is a neat idea that never really gets well executed, some technical problems and design concepts mar the experience for me.

And by this I mean the Allant fight - trudging back to him takes significant time due to powerful enemies you have to take on carefully, then there's an elevator ride and a humongous fps drop during the bossfight. On top of all, Miyazaki's idea of punishing the player is making the boss delevel him. This shouldn't be hard to avoid, but sometimes my inputs get all jumbly because the framerate confuses me, and he teleports his grab when my roll finishes, depleting souls. That and weapons like scraping spear are pretty pointless design. I don't want a game that introduces more tedious crap, I just want a challenge. And by tedious crap I mean anything to do with crafting. Holy shit, did the Monster Hunter do it well compared to any other game. Yes, I'm aware of Stockpile Thomas exploit but it would further ruin the experience. Getting ores is such a pointless chore though.

Except for MH, did any game do crafting well, and didn't just use it as padding? Because it's the worst element of Souls games.

As for Dark Souls areas:

God Tier: Blighttown, Burg/Parish

High Tier: Depths, Fortress, ToG, PW, Catacombs

Mid Tier:
Darkroot, Londo (New and Anor)

Shit Tier:
everything else

Demon's Souls is way above Dark in terms of level design. And DaS 2 looks like something Blizzoware would make.

I play on ps3, and I get invaded at least once each level if I go through it unhollowed the entire time. The twink builds that constantly invade int he Perish get aggravating though. Because of that, every play through i do, I spend 1-3 hours jumping around to different high level areas to grab end game spells and gear, just so i have a fighting chance against invaders when i start doing the main quest thing. Like, I'll have wrath of the gods in the first hour or two of my faith build playthroughs.

Zulie's set would be perfect if it didn't have that cut-out back or those ugly nails.

I'm pure black character tendency and have no trouble with the game (except Allant) so far because I overleveled - not by grinding, it's just that Shrine of Storms gives a humongous amount of souls, and 1-3 and 1-4 are even more opulent.


>>261236490
Downloaded. It's very noticeable, especially when he comboes and I roll away from him. It does not render the game unplayable, but combined with his tankiness and the fact that around 28 hours in I still don't have a good STR weapon, it's all sorts of jarring. His moveset is fine, but some elements of that bossfight I highly dislike. He's the worst designed boss after Dragon God that I've met so far.

How much time did you fags spent creating your character? I usually try to mold them to look decent but From Soft can't into faces. I did like the new features on DaS2. If only they had added body tattoos.

Solaire never makes it to the sunlight maggots, I always develop a craving for his pimping armor at some point and he has an accident

I've actually done a run where I kill every NPC as soon as possible, a lot of them don't even drop stuff unless you wait to kill them later

That lake of lava that hurts your eyes and rapes your ears with WOOSH WOOSH WOOSH.
Having to equip that stupid ring every time you die.
Enemies are shitty statues and shitty dragon asses placed arbitrarily around the level, and those hilarious squiddy things.
Generally bland level design, not much to explore or look at.
Completely pointless Asylum Demon rehash.
Bed of Chaos.

>>261237837
Capra is a much better bossfight than people give him credit for. It would be horrible if every boss was like Capra (die immediately, long walk back - this is the problem with La-Mulana) but he's a neat riddle piece on your first playthrough, really hectic. Stray Demon is also very good once you figure out what kind of damage he does.

Worst bossfight by far is Four Kings.

>>261237653
I'm convinced the download version has framerate problems. I've played EU and NA disc copies and had drops only when rolling into a load of junk, yet my friend who downloaded it complains about drops during all kinds of normal situations. He's usually very reliable about this stuff too.

At least it can't be as bad as DaS on PS3

>And by this I mean the Allant fight - trudging back to him takes significant time due to powerful enemies you have to take on carefully, then there's an elevator ride and a humongous fps drop during the bossfight. On top of all, Miyazaki's idea of punishing the player is making the boss delevel him. This shouldn't be hard to avoid, but sometimes my inputs get all jumbly because the framerate confuses me, and he teleports his grab when my roll finishes, depleting souls.

>>261238279
Don't know, I borrowed a friend's PS3 and don't have a disc. Biggest framedrop was when Dragon flies to perch above gate before Allant, but that has no bearing on gameplay. I still haven't gone to the Valley of Defilement so I hope it won't be horrible there. Allant is just such a bad bossfight for me because I don't like the concept behind some of his moves, and since I evade everything drops in framerate make me a bit lost and/or bored/irritated.

Well they're not terrible but I didn't find them to be especially outstanding bosses anyway. I put Firesage and Stray in bad tier because they're the same as Asylum mostly, though maybe that's harsh on Stray Demon.

>>261238373
Well, yes, I guess I should count BoC but at least it looks nicer than Kings.

About NG+ : since STR, DEX and similar stats stop scaling at 40, does that mean that you have a character that can do everything by the end of NG+? I mean if you have 40 STR/END in NG, you can build up 40 DEX/faith in NG+, right? Or do you go above 40?

I haven't gone through all of DaS2 because it takes me forever with these type of games to beat them, but holy fuck does DaS2 have more levels than DaS1.

So far I haven't really felt like I liked a particular area, (I'm in The Gutter, it's the only great soul left I need to collect). This game feels like a collection of level ideas, regardless if they make any sense how they connect with each other. Some areas are extremely short, at times I wished that there was more to explore.

From what I've seen, Drangelic looks kinda cool, so I'll wait until I get there. Some of the DLC also looks kinda neat.

The new DLC area in Iron Keep is fantastic, but I liked Aldia's Keep, the road to Dranglaic Castle (and the mirror knight fight area and hallway).

Gutter was kinda neat because it was one of the few areas they kept dark.

Heide's Tower of Flame was ok.

>Heide's Tower of Flame was ok.

It looked nice but the level design was absolute trash. Just circular platforms with 1, 2 or 3 of the same enemy.

also this is pedantic but the DLC isn't set in past Iron Keep. It's present day somewhere else, some kind of ironworks forge for the Keep itself.
Solid level design though.

Too bad all of the DeS stages were linear shit.

DaS had places you could see in the distance that you could actually reach.

Das II had skyboxes that could look nice, but everything was connected by magical tunnels that spit you across the island like crazy. Example: stand in Majula and look towards Heide's Tower of Flame. You can see the cathedral and it's fucking tiny, but the walk to get there is deceptively short for how big it actually is.

The core mechanics of Dark Souls 2 were an improvement without a doubt in my mind. The souls series has always made the combat better through trial and error. The areas were the sloppiest part for me. Soul level and covenant design were iffy as well. Boss design was very often also disappointing.

All logic, all lore... just gone.

Ash Lake is real pretty too, but I don't go there unless I need to.

Now that you mention it, I've never actually used it.

it's about ethics ingrained in the company. from is disgusting, and they have started their DLC downfall route soon to be coupled with additional multiplayer fee only on PS4. play bloodborne over the course of a year and it's like you bought it twice. not counting DLC.

It was a huge, poisonous swamp, right? At least right before the boss?

The road is straightforward as hell, from safe zone to safe zone.

The first Dark Souls was easy as fuck at release with all the ways to cheese shit.

>>261244910
>DeS levels
>Any complexity at all

Sonygger elitists, please. I have yet to play DaS2, but DeS is just plain weak in that area.

if you're fine with playing 5 dollars per month to play online on top of what you already paid for the game, go for it.
>>
>>261245216
Most games are easy when you look up ways to cheese them online.

Yeah I found it to be sort of jarring the way the areas were just sewn together like patchwork. The weather, lighting, terrain, everything just changes sharply as you go through a door. When you look at that map in the mansion it doesn't seem at all like you have travelled as far as is shown.

Or easily discover one of the many broken spells/weapons the game throws at you.

Oh, ok, you just don't know what the word cheese means. That's ok, retard.

Nah, 4 Kings design was a clusterfuck of spikes and twisty shit, it was far too busy and overdesigned. The magic attacks looked pretty generic too. And having every one of them look identical is lazy, as is making the arena just pitch black (yes, I know it's the Abyss, but come on).

I pronounce Ornstein like Rammstein and Ciaran Siaran

>>261245216
All the souls games are easy as fuck, people just don't realize it because they're playing for gamer cred and refuse to use more than one weapon despite having 4/6 whole slots for equipment on the fly and an infinite number of inventory slots after Demon Souls.

PCnigger please. Tower of Latria is more complex than anything in DaS.

Oh, and don't play DaS 2.

But people say Rammstein differently too!

I just beat the Fool's Idol but apparently it just keeps coming back to life. Am I missing something or is this just something to go back to later on?

Also, where do I find sticky white stuff?

What about Smough...it's frustrating to say.
