@Ryzaerian my lack of patience makes me terrible at these games, I am a button mash at heart and cant shake that in some situations

I still own all 3 DS games and NiOH on PS4 and I will be getting this remastered on Switch but I have to figure a way to make by hands listen to my brain lol

@Ryzaerian Dark Souls is actually an extremely simple game which curbs a lot of the difficulty. It's not as fast or complex as Bayonetta and other such action games, it's just pattern reading and knowing when to not over-extend yourself.

On the other hand, being aggressive and staggering guys before they get the jump on you is always good too. Enemies die extremely easily in Dark Souls.

Well I hope the Switch and other consoles do better than the PC version did. Lol this remastered version apparently killed the online following. I guess people just didn't want to rebuy something that had no major upgrades (given that the hardcore followers had already modded it for higher resolution and framerate)

@EvilLucario

I find the fast-paced Bayonetta, DMC, Darksiders etc. style of games to be far easier than the Dark Souls, Animus, Bloodborne, etc. genre, precisely because the latter forces you to slow down.

That’s what makes these games a trial: mandatory, involuntary patience. They’re not easier because they’re slower. That’s what makes them challenging and sometimes unforgiving.

So I’m in the same category as @ValhallaOutcast in this case. 😁

Just played for the first time. I have no idea what is going on with all of the different things I can hit B to touch and ghosts that keep wandering around. Then I see the big bull/warthog thing and die within 5 seconds every time. I understand what everyone is saying about needing patience and eventually you'll figure out what you thought was impossible the first 50 times you fought a boss, but I just don't think I have that much free time in my life and too many other games I want to play to bother with this. I'll probably give it another go over the next 2 days, but I'm a solid "No" on this right now.

@Xyphon22

It's a network test. It's not the same as the actual game.
You shouldn't play this to get a sense of the game. They really should have some kind of message telling you that .

I actually had a lot of fun tonight. Well, except when I got invaded and ganked while grabbing another beer. I don’t know who you are, but I will find you, and I will kill you. 😁

@Xyphon22 There’s no question that there’s a bit of a learning curve and, as @Dezzy said, they don’t really explain enough during the network test.

Look, there’s no right and wrong here. But I can tell you this: I had a few “to hell with this” moments when I first got into this genre of games. But in my experience, if you push through, things will click and it’ll become a lot of fun.

Just my two cents.

@Ryzaerian Were you a Knight of Sunlight or a Black Knight next to the bonfire? Just like an hour ago I was invading worlds killing guys as a naked Black Knight.

@EvilLucario Ahahaha YES. About 45 mins ago or so? I was the Knight of Sunlight standing next to the bonfire!

I actually played as a Pyromancer all night EXCEPT that one time. You literally got me on my way back from the fridge.

That’s funny as hell.

Pretty much everyone says this about Dark Souls. It started out as kind of crappy and obtuse but then a few hours in, something clicks in your brain and you realise "how" to play it, which makes it become fun.

In my opinion, if you like Castlevania (which is fairly popular from what I remember), you will love Dark Souls. Because Dark Souls is literally a 3D Castlevania game that translates the core essence of Castlevania (high difficulty, deliberate actions) into 3D extremely well.

@EvilLucario Ahahaha, no man, this is on me. I’ve been gaming for a long time. I know better than to go afk in a potential PvP zone. I would’ve done the same.

I actually sort of feel better about it knowing that it was you.

I had no interest in this game, but the free test demo prompted me to give it a try, and I gotta say it's actually pretty cool. The graphics are surprisingly good, and I like the gameplay too. Yes you die a lot, but every time any enemy kills you, you learn from your mistake and go back and beat it the 2nd time, and you progress further with every attempt. I might give this game a go when it releases for Switch.

Can't wait to play this when it vomes out next month. Won't get to do any of the beta but from what I've seen from a few Youtubers I can tell I will like it.

"Vomes", verb. To vomit something out.

Ha ha, stupid phone. You would think autocorrect would change that but no.

@SuperWeird I feel about the same way. I've always wanted to try a Dark Souls game, but never really had enough interest in them to purchase one. The test demo is kind of growing on me, though.

@Dezzy @Ryzaerian So how exactly is the actual game different than this? Is it easier and doesn't require 50 deaths to learn what you are doing? Because it doesn't sound like it. I understand that it might grow on you, and if I stuck with it long enough I might learn to love it. I'm just saying that I don't have that much time in my life to dedicate to a video game that I MIGHT grow to like eventually. Especially when three games that I know I really want and haven't gotten yet are Hyrule Warriors, Skyrim, and XC2, all of which can take up over 100 hours or so I hear.
