@Dezzy
it still kills you if you hit the sides of the stairs while making the Leap of faith( I found out that in a painful way). That sadistic miyazaki. !
but if you climb down the staircase and then make the leap , the chances of death are minimalised.

Just tried to take on O&S for the first time. Killed Orenstein fairly quickly with Solaire's help. Solaire died shortly after. Got Smough's health down to 2 or 3 hits and I got greedy and he smooshed me under his hammer. I am still shaking from the adrenaline!

Update: I did it! Second try and I beat them!!!!

I know how you Feel .
I also know the pain when I deleted the game after getting killed 26 straight times(O&S) and npc went hostile. There could have been big holes in my TV...but luckily did not happen.

Hi Guys, i would like to ask just one question about this port, how it is play with the joycons? is possibile to defeat any enemies including bosses with them ? i am asking becasue i do not want to buy the pro controller and if the game is a with the joycons i will save my money for CTR next month

dunno if you are alreay at home base...but
I find the joy-con completely clownish ...compared to the pro ctrlr.
I did not know this myself , till I bought myself one(Pro).
Now I only play with the pro ...it's firm, heavy & Robust.
for e.g, it takes me 2-3 left thump tweaks to put the cursor on the enemy's head with the Pro(sniper mode)....I will take 5-6 tries with the joy con...and maybe even more tries.
The difference is quality....simply put.

@radaway_1 thanks. I play tank style too. I had Havel's ring equipped, and wore a mixture of high defence armor and a high defence/stability shield. I was basically a wall. I got lucky. I used the pillars to seperate them as best I could and killed Ornstein quickly. Smough on his own wasnt that bad. It was a bit easier because I have a +5 Hellkite Sword and Smough is chonky.

The divine weapon thing tripped me up at the time because i kind of forced myself through the catacombs way too early. By the time I could forge one I didn't really need it. I killed the Necromancers using the aformentioned bow tactic to get the skeletons to stop respawning. Then was grounded into sawdust by Bonewheels and a Black Knight.

Unrelated question to everyone - This is my first soulsborne game and I'm wondering if there's a recommended order they should be played in. I'll probably do them chronologically from release date which would mean Dark Souls -> Dark Souls II -> Blood Borne -> Dark Souls III -> Sekiro

Thoughts?

@radaway_1

Yeah the different types of weapon upgrades like Divine, Crystal, Enchanted, Magic, don't necessarily make a weapon stronger. They just give it different attributes. So in general you want a weapon that is just upgraded to be normal +10, and then some separate ones that have certain abilities like Divine and Magic.

They're almost entirely independent of one another, so it generally doesn't matter. The only 2 where it matters a small amount are DS1 and DS3. DS3 reuses some characters and places from DS1 (although they're presented as if they're new, so first timers won't notice), so you should definitely play DS1 before DS3. That's the only issue though. The rest are almost entirely independent games and you can play them in any order.

@radaway_1 You do realize you're replying to a message from about a year ago in which I already told I beat the game I beat the game multiple times now.

@Losermagnet just my opinion of course, but I would remove ds2 from that list and just play in the order of the original creator. (ds2 was directed by someone else)

Sekiro is a different beast altogether, movement and combat wise. I absolutely loved it and keep returning to it.

@Dezzy @Spanjard thanks for the input. My primary concern in playing them in a different order is if certain entries are less refined that it would be more difficult to enjoy them. I've often read that Dark Souls II is the non-Miyazaki "b-team" game and I figured the only good time to play it would be after Dark Souls I. It's good to hear that it's safely skippable. I'll probably still try it (I already bought it 😂) but I don't have the free time to finish a game that isn't compelling.

@Losermagnet

Yeah if you skip DS2, you won't really miss anything. It's not a bad game per se, but it basically does everything worse than the other games in the series, and doesn't really have any aspect in which it stands out.

Especially if you don't have that much free time, it's definitely safe to skip it. The other 3 games (or 4 if you have Demon's Souls too), will take a lot of time to work through anyway.

I would recommend going DS1->DS3->Bloodborne->Sekiro though. Dark Souls 3 has basically the same gameplay mechanics as Dark Souls 1, so you can transition into that very easily. Whereas Bloodborne and Sekiro both change those mechanics up quite a bit, so require a bit of adjusting your mentality.

@Dezzy thanks for the advice. I've become acutely obsessed with this series and I ended up buying all the games available on my PS4. I even indulged and bought a board game version so I can paint the minis.

What do you consider the most difficult Souldborne game? I've only played the first DS and, while it's challenging, I wouldn't say it's remarkably difficult. I have a harder time navigating areas than I do with combat (usually).

@Losermagnet

Either Bloodborne or Sekiro. Really depends on which system you find easiest to adapt to.

Also don't forget that DS3 and Bloodborne both have DLC, that is not to be missed!

Does anyone still play this on Switch? What's the online PvP like?

Dark Souls is my favourite game ever and I bought this when it first came to Switch, I used to do low level PvP at Undead Burg non-stop was so much fun but because of the WL they have added I never went to a different area for PvP as I wasn't sure on activity and what weapons people would use. I want to rebuy this but I mainly do PvP I had 100 hours on the game and only beat the Asylum Demon.

I’ve now on my third attempt to play this properly and to be honest I don’t see what the fuss is about. I’m just not having fun, it’s probably too “hardcore” for the likes of me.

@jump How far have you gotten? I didn't care much for it either at first. I can't pinpoint when I started caring but eventually I was invested. I had a similar experience with Hollow Knight actually. I think with these types of games, until I know the rules and feel like I can function properly in the game I don't have much fun. Once I felt like I accomplished something, and the lore starts to take shape, then it became a more rewarding experience.

However, I've been playing Dark Souls II and....yeah that one isn't doing it for me. I'm really conflicted because every now-and-then there's something I like, but it's quickly replaced by 2 things I'm completely put off by. The gameplay is there (mostly) but creature design, world design, and lore isn't. Meh. Definately skippable.

Pretty much everyone says the same thing. The first time you play these games, they seem a bit weird, and you don't quite get it. Then if you persevere for long enough, you get to a certain point where something clicks in your mind, and it suddenly becomes addictive.

That was certainly true for me. Probably about 3 or 4 hours into the first game, my mind switched.

Dark Souls II is a title I haven't played yet, and while it received criticism, it doesn't decrease my interest in a potential Switch port.

I wouldn't hold your breath. It's so poorly regarded among the souls community that I doubt anyone's gonna be suggesting a port of it.

It's not a bad game, it's just quite noticeably worse than all the others.

@Dezzy Thats very true. I finished Bloodborne recently and, even after finishing Dark Souls 1 and 2, I kind of hated Bloodborne for the first few hours (Father Gascoigne, omg Father Gascoigne). But eventually it clicks.

I actually flogged it a few weeks ago. I’ve had it for years at this point but I can never find the enthusiasm to play past the first 3ish hours of the game. I’m sure I’m missing out but I’ve got other games I’d rather get on with rather than trying to like something over and over again only to fail.

@Slowdive as someone who played remastered and 2 through for the first time recently, I thought 2 was a slog. It felt repetitive and uninspired. I got through all of it and my playtime was over 100 hours, which was twice as much as DS 1. And frankly, the lore in it kind of sucks. There's definitely good stuff in it, but I think it just depends on what your looking for.
