Dark Souls
« on: October 10, 2011, 05:40:02 AM »
I don't think I will get many replies, but it's worth a try:

If you desperately want a Metroidvania in 3D, but done well, get Dark Souls.

I kid you not. The game got everything you want from a Metroidvania.

-Nonlinear exploration (punishment for venturing too far too early included, but good players can finish anyway)
-Loads of paths and shortcuts to unlock
-Truckloads of equipment and spells
-Great difficulty (though not unfair, as some claim)
-Great designs for environments, equipment and monsters
-Soundtrack is an orchestral orgy or calm and menacing, it covers the whole program

I can't believe how this game is absorbing me.

Here is music



Though even if you're not big on CV but want a challenging game that practically devours your freetime, get this.

Holy [parasitic bomb] I love it.

Is this game as tough as Demon's Souls or is it harder?

Supposedly harder but with more stuff to exploit and a bigger number of items/weapons.

I honestly can't wait, but between this and Arkham City, Arkham wins...

It's been a while since I played Demon's Souls.

But if my memory serves right... Dark Souls is indeed harder.

I have Dark Souls now, i don't know how they made it harder but they did.

Also whoever from the team said they made riposting easier is a god damn liar, it was perfectly fine in Demon's Souls now it feels almost random.

I prefer backstabbing anyway.
Though riposte deals more damage.

Also, I GOT SILVER KNIGHT ARMOR.

I LOOK PIMP AS [tornado fang].

Too bad that once you get the Drake Sword, you won't switch weapons in the entire game again.

You haven't played very far yet have you?

Drake Sword gets outclassed later on. It' just a good beginning weapon.

And wasting dragon scales on upgrading it really isn't worth it.

Don't have the game yet, just heard it was too good of a weapon to be outclassed by others.

Well, I stopped using it.

It's overpowered as hell for the early parts of the game. But nobody should stick with it forever. Seriously.

I like riposting ='(

Yeah i got the Drake Sword as well but i can see it being outclassed soon enough. I wondered into the DarkRoot Basin and i found enemies that didn't get one shot by it! D:

I traversed into Anor Londo and the Drake Sword is useless!
I will now have to forge a proper weapon to proceed.

Also, Darkroot Basin is where the Hydra is.

THEY
RUINED
MULTIPLAYER




Holy [parasitic bomb] I just wasted two hours of my life trying to get into a game with someone.  I finally see my friend's soapstone and then I get the message "SUMMONING FAILS."  Now we're back to square one.  This is total bullshit and I want you all to know.

Don't get this game if you have any intention of playing with people you know.  It's just not going to happen.  The only reason why I haven't returned my game is because I am hoping for some sort of resolution to this problem.  Like a patch or something.  Totally ruined my weekend.  I was so psyched for this coop.

Ruining multi is different than having an error.

I honestly haven't heard any complaints, and the forum I go to is pretty Dark Souls-discussion heavy.

It's not just one isolated event.  I never had any trouble playing Demon's Souls with friends, so I think I know what I'm talking about.

Everyone has been complaining about the online.  Even the devs are aware of it.  They just announced a new matchmaking patch, so hopefully that does something.

I just got the Darkwraith equipment. The whole set.

Looks boss as [tornado fang], but kinda sucks.

Isn't that supposed to be slightly better than the Elite Knight armor?  That's what I've been using for a while.

My Elite Knight set is around +6 or +7 I think. And I just received the Dark set. So the knight set is obviously better. I'd be surprised if it wasn't.

Dark sword is a nice one handed weapon, but I will keep my Black Knight Sword+4

Hey Sub Tank, what Soul Level are you?

If they patch the co-op mode so people can play with specific other players instead of random people, would you be up for some dark souling?
