Get whatever that water shield spell is. Learn to roll through him. You can roll right in front of his face during his AOE attack and take no damage if you time it right. He's weak as fuck to magic so if you want to be a fag you can grab a shit ton of spice and shoot him with soul arrow from across the room for 3 minutes.

Roll, purple flame shield, water shield spell. gitting gudder.

>>264865192
Change that equals sign to a greater than and you've got my opinion.
>>
>>264862303
I liked the gameplay in DeS best. Lack of poise made combat really fun, you could use small weapon like the daggers or rapiers and they were actually decent since every hit will stun your enemy. I've dropped people in full armor with great swords using a Kris blade.

In Dark Souls 1/2 you'd just get two-handed smashed by some guy with 80+poise and a great club if you tried to do that.

Demon's and Dark are both almost perfect. I play Dark more though because I don't have to get up and turn on my PS3.

>>264865892
I actually would, mostly it's a game of patience and common sense, if you pay attention to what the enemy is doing, you can get through the game like a knife through hot butter.

I like Demons Souls a lot, but thats a dumb reason to put it above the other two.
>>
>>264866215
I don't think you understand combat
and getting smashed by a club is only your fault. large weapons are by far the worst weapons
>>
>>264865892

Actually most stuff is broadcasted early enough that reaction speed doesn't figure in that much. I'd say timing is more important, as well as ability to adapt.
>>
Dark Souls 1, by far actually.
DeS was way too short and the many X-3/X-4s that were just corridors and a boss was massively disappointing.
DaS 2 just lacked good ideas in general.
>>
Dark Souls > Demons Souls >> Dark Souls II

I played Dark Souls first, followed by Souls II and then just recently Demons Souls.
I absolutely loved Dark Souls, but 2 is still a disappointment. I don't even have the urge to play the DLC.
Demons Souls was a nice change of pace and the level based design did some wonders for certain areas in the game because they didn't have to bother with continuity between the different worlds.
The amount of stones required to upgrade stuff and equipment/item burden is annoying as fuck

Demons souls is a boring, unfinished, uninspired kings field derivative with a less imaginative director who didn't really know what he was doing.

Dark souls was somewhat more realised and interesting, but still lacked focus and was generally uninteresting due to a huge rushed schedule.

Dark souls 2 is a polished, quality game that bought back core values of what makes games like this truly special, and I for one congratulate the team and Naotoshi Zin on accomplishing that.
>>

>>264866935
Agreed

The Faraam set looked so good in the trailers and concept art but it looks like shit in game.
>>
Demon's Souls purely on 3 decisions.
1. It was my first souls game, thus introducing me to the combat style and feel of survival. I greatly enjoyed the other two, but nothing feels quite as great as your first time delving into something.
2. It bolsters 2 of my top 3 favorite weapons in the souls games. Guillotine Axe and dragonbone smasher. My 3rd favorite is Demon's spear due to it's great range and strong power at low levels.
3. Has some of my favorite NPC stories in souls series and arguably the best villain NPC should you decide to become an evil being.

Just my opinions on why it's my favorite.

Dark Souls 2 looks nice and runs better sure, and I enjoy it a great deal, but the lore in 2 is uninspired Dark Souls fanfiction.

Dark Souls 1 was the one I had the most fun with.

Honestly, I wont do that. It's not that I don't like it so far, it's that I don't like buying in things early. I like to observe things and then eventually go for it if i like it at all.

Dark 1. Can't say enough good things. Love the level design with a big interconnected world, where every new area seems big and imposing, but seems small and simple once you know the area. Love the story and setting. Love the satisfying and simple RPG and combat systems.

Demon's is definitely close, but it's on the short side and I think it's too easy to become completely broken early in the game. It's a lot less refined in gameplay: a good example is the health system, with consumable grass and fairly forgiving HP totals.

Dark 2 is okay.

Dark Souls 1.
>>
>>264864889
All of his moves are highly telegraphed. Use magically upgraded equipment, whomp him after he attacks. Use the I-frames on your rolls to dodge his attacks if you're too close.

He's rather aggressive. I found baiting out his dunk to be the most efficient method of getting attacks in, as it has a lot of cool down frames.

tl;dr git gud

He's surprisingly easy though. I played through Demon's Souls for the first time earlier this year and I remember everyone bitching about Flamelurker when the game first came out. But I downed him in maybe 5 tries. Now the fucking Maneaters? FUCK those guys. 30+ attempts.

I play DS2 more now because it has more of a community and it runs way better overall and with the DLC it's probably the longest of them.

I loved DS1 and 2 has it's flaws but when you don't look at it like a sequel to DS1, the game is a solid 8, still the weakest souls game however.

Wait so you haven't finished Dark Souls 1?

As for the thread, I'm a bit torn. DSII has a consistently good base game, and doesn't have anywhere near the drop in quality that Dark Souls has with Lost Izalith/the Bed of Chaos. But ultimately it's much less memorable as it is a retread of DaS' plot with much less ambition. The DLCs are dope.

Dark Souls is far, far more memorable. And I don't just say that as having played it first, but the seamlessly blending world along with the variety of enemies and wonderful atmosphere. DSII had a fine idea: It's the Age of Man now as opposed to the Age of Fire and we're exploring a continent instead of a 2 mi sq tract of land. Execution could've used work.

I started DeS a month ago but haven't had time to play it, but I can already tell it'll be far more memorable than either DaS or DeS.

Am I the only one who likes them all, each for different reasons?

Demons' Souls has best level and enemy design, but worst overall combat and variety of usable weapons.
Dark Souls has best boss fights, and best early game, but falls flat after the halfway point.
Dark Souls 2 has best combat system and best PVP, as well as best variety of usable weapons, but poor level and enemy design.

The level design, enemies, lore and overall atmosphere in Dark Souls are better, but the gameplay mechanics in Dark Souls 2 are better in my opinion. Demon's Souls I still haven't played since I don't have a PS3, but eventually I'll get around to it. For me, Dark Souls is 8/10 and the sequel is 7/10, both are really good games.

Dark Souls, though I've never played Demon's Souls because I don't have a PS3. 2 was kind of a disappointment for me since I clocked so many hours in 1.

I like the way wake up moves were changed as well as the backstabs.

There are far, FAR less backstab bullshits going on than EVER in Dark Souls. Getting one feels great instead of cheap.

It's dragged down a lot though with the somehow even WORSE netcode resulting in "I was fucking 10 feet away how did that hit me"

Dark Souls 2.

It has the most responsive controls, most balanced online and general gameplay, most replayability, most builds, most mechanics, and honestly runs great while generally looking good, whereas DaS 1 was a blurry mess.

Dark Souls is okay, but it runs wayyyy too fucking badly. I can't enjoy a game that runs at 20 fps most of the time, whereas DS2 runs at 60 fps all the time. There's absolutely no excuse. There's also no real reason to play in NG+ since the game is exactly the same except the enemies are more difficult.

The game also barely works with KB+M, whereas Dark Souls 2 has actual KB+M support.

I'll take Soul Memory over >INVADING/SUMMONING FAILED 50% of the time.

Haven't played DeS but since it runs on an older engine of DS1 I'm going to assume it runs even worse.

Base Dark Souls had Lost Izalith. Base Dark Souls II had the Black Gulch, but the Black Gulch was nowhere near as long as Lost Izalith and didn't have an awful boss. The DLC for DSII has been leagues ahead of the base game of DSII.

Hilariously enough, Dark Souls 1 runs monumentally worse than Demon's Souls. Dark 1 had the real B team. It missed everything that made Demon's so unique, and instead chose to actively shit the bed every chance it got, and wasn't even completed time. Let's not forget every covenant not working, SUMMONING PHANTOM/SUMMONING FAILED INVADING WORLD AS A DARK SPIRIT NOTHING HAPPENED, PvP being reduced to firing the bass cannon, dark magic out the asshole, or a gimmick build, and of course the fucking shitty memes. Dark Souls was a huge step down from Demon's Souls, but the babbies here flocked to it because m-muh mustard race. All the bosses were shit, and the ones that weren't were copy pastes of Demon's. Dark Souls 1 was factually shit compared to even 2.

Yeah, some of the bosses were weak or just had too much health, and the repeating bosses in demon ruins were lazy and cheap, but I take that instead of the 9999th knight boss with the same fucking moveset.

Demon's Souls for leveling, as convenient as the bonfires were.
Dark Souls for the armor. Seriously, Elite Knight not just looks good, it's easily one of the best armor sets in the game. Especially the leg and hand parts are extremely well optimized and commonly seen in PvP builds for a reason.

Incorrect, I PvP'd a lot, mostly with Shotels. The fact that people still fell for that a whole game later really showed how shit the community was. People generally just used cheap bullshit because the PvP mechanic got really bad from Demon's, where everyone was zipping around with every spell in the game and 3 gazillion stamina and life, making fights last hilariously long. It was a battle of wits, rather than having a sword that does 12 million damage, and if that failed, a spell that packs enough punch to kill you 18 times over. OnlyAfro a shit.

Yet they keep putting it in the games. It and backstabbing serve no real purpose, when normal combat is far safer and more effective, but they just keep trying.

If they'd just make the fucking system less effective, and more like blocking someone, except it drains their stamina more, or regens yours or something, it wouldn't be so god damned hard to implement.

Dark Souls 2 is a boring, unfinished, uninspired kings field derivative with a less imaginative director who didn't really know what he was doing.

Demon Souls was somewhat more realized and interesting, but still lacked focus and was generally uninteresting due to a huge rushed schedule.

Dark souls is a polished, quality game that bought back core values of what makes games like this truly special, and I for one congratulate the team and Hidetaka Miyazaki on accomplishing that.

Treat the player the way game initially does, they are going to do everything in their power to make their own task easier. Give them the power to do so through all the equipment you get showered with a little bit later on and they're going to do exactly that.

I didn't even use heavy armor on my first playthrough, and stuck to elite knights which I couldn't even upgrade very far for obvious lack of chunks, but once I did a low level run I realized how ridiculously easy havel's set and giant's set can make things.

From, while making a couple of games in a format I like, is full of dumbasses and incompetent workers. A large portion of their coders are just otaku basement dwellers they slapped on their pay, who barely know how to code, much less how to code elegantly or effectively.

Also consider how Japan in general has no concept of how to use a PC. They're obsessed with mobile devices and consoles. PCs are for working and excel spreadsheets. There aren't many homegrown coders over there, so the talent pool is already thin.

FromSoft is still a small, young company, and it shows. They have very little actual talent beyond some artists and a couple of their directors, who have to act like retard wranglers. It's mind blowing they released a game of the quality of DeS and DS1 at all, even as awkward and buggy as they were.

You can't give that format to a western dev team though. Stupid niggers will just shit out a clone that tries too hard to be gothic God of War with a claymore, and completely miss the fucking point.

For what I case, Demon and Dark are at the same level. I prefer Dark because I like the setting more and I really dislike the tendency system Demon uses, or at least I dislike how they implemented it.
Dark Souls II is shit. Not completely shit, it has its undeniable nice componentsbut the whole package disappointed me. People say I had too high anticipations but I call bullshit on that. I played through it four times, didn't like it. I will try it again as soon as the last dlc appears and will give him another shot, but I doubt that sir Alonne will make things better all by himself.

Everyone seems to think it but I really don't. Anor is surely a high point, but I still think that both Archives and New Londo are very good, especially because of the Spooky Kings.
The catacombs are an amazing vertical area if you do them at the right level (which I suppose is somewhere right after the gargoyles), but I agree that the tomb of the giant is not very intresting on subsequent playthroughs. It was indeed a quite tense place to explore as a new player though. Nito as a boss is quite bad.
The only real area I really dislike is Izalith but not really because of the gameplay itself, it's basically a beta location quickly completed to satisfy fucking Bandai. It's short, uneventful and then you can move on.
Gwyn is a nice boss if you don't parry or use shield. Yes I know, self limiting challenges and such, but if you do it like that has his own moments. Dat music also.

>because both blue casuals and sentinels need the ring on at all times this happens even less so
Why the fuck didn't they just make being part of the covenant automatically make you eligible for help?
I'm sure blue casuals don't ever think "hey actually I didn't want help with this invader, which is why I am in the specific covenant to get help"
Just doing that would give sentinels more chances.
And having losing duels not reduce wins for Brotherhood of blood would make that more attractive, leading to more invasions and yet more blue sentinel work.

God fucking damn it.

>>264878041
It looks like shit in comparison. You can only get it to +10 'right away' (requires you to go back to the undead parish), which will get you an inferior weapon.

13 times. The thing is if we're going by numbers, I've only been Rat Covenant'd twice. By your logic the Rat Covenant must be fucking abysmal.

>You are just palying with words right now, it was shit. Everybody know it was shit and badly implemented. Why are you defending it?

Words are important you idiot did you never take a rhetoric and comp class in high school?

There's a BIG fucking difference between "Gravelord Covenant is not functional", "Gravelord Covenant is not working", and "Gravelord Covenant is shit". I would most certainly agree with the latter statement, but NOBODY said that. Fuck man c'mon.

>You made 3 fucking posts full of excuses why DS1 fuck ups arent that bad.

I made three posts against a post that said the following:

>Let's not forget every covenant not working

That is not true.

>SUMMONING PHANTOM/SUMMONING FAILED INVADING WORLD AS A DARK SPIRIT NOTHING HAPPENED

I stated that DSII did indeed improve this, however it also has its flaws with far more instances of bullshit phantom range. That is indeed a defense of DaS PvP, but that is in NO WAY AT ALL EXCUSING THE AWFUL NETCODE holy fuck man.

>PvP being reduced to firing the bass cannon

Which is untrue.

>dark magic out the asshole

This is not something that says whether the dark magic is good or not, moreover I just dodged through it so yeah.

>or a gimmick build

>I am educated gentleman, muh words and rhetoric
Gravelord was as shit as your personality, anon.

>I made three posts against a post that said the following
3 posts of excuses for ds1 and blalant attacks for the sake of arguing

Did you really screencap one of your sentences? What are you doing, anon? DS was great game and it had weak parts. Anon listed few of these and was more or less right about it. While you defended that shit for the sake of what? Do you benefit? Does anon? Is from going to make better games because yo udefend them online? Are those flawed Dark souls part magicaly fixed by your posts?

This. NPCs in DaS 2 all seem really boring. I never cared for any of them except for jester thomas mabe because he is so fucking overpowered he might as well be another player. Also, no NPC gave me as much feels as the poor Onion bro.

You know, I feel like DaS2 wouldnt be shit if it wasnt for consoles. The game seemed to have had a lot of neat ideas, but consoles couldnt handle them. So what we got was a shitty Souls game.

I think the worst part of it all though, is that the B-team is now thought of as being terrible, even though they didnt even get to do what they wanted to. It's pretty sad.

I hear this all the time but even DeS had darker areas better than DaS 2

Is that a NPC or another player?

Farting around in CE. I had already finished the game and had nothing better to do, so I just did what I wanted.
