    'ey!
    Saw a lack of dark souls threads within this forum, so i decided to be the first to post one.
    Lets start off with a simple question, what do you like about Dark Souls, 1 or 2?
    I like how it is one of the few games that actually think your smart, so it doesent hold your hand for EVERYHTANG!

    we all wish we could be so grossly incandescent.

    also, if you hurt Priscilla, you are the biggest bastard ever.

    Looking into getting Dark Souls, looks like a fun game, and I'll try to get Dark Souls 2.

    Also fuck the Platinum, not hurting Priscilla.

    they made so many changes that it can't even judged by what Dark Souls was

    A excellent time of year to discuss Dark Souls! (No sarcasm.)
    What I like about it?
    - The lore, how it's told through a minimalist approach that leaves plenty of room for educated speculation.
    - The characters. They're all great and amazingly voiced. I was genuinely invested in what was happening with most of them and the fates of many really pulled my heart strings, maybe more than in any other game.
    - The game's slow, methodical pace. Quite a breath of fresh air in comparison to everything else.
    - Subtlety. This isn't a game of explosions, building sized monsters and bombastic Hollywood music score and praise the Sun for that!

    I'll take the liberty of adding what I DON'T like: getting jumped by JP douchebags that King Crimson my ass every time. Dude standing in front me, not even strafing and half a second later I'm eating a backstab. WTF netcode?! >:[
    IMHO PvP is great in theory but in practice it allows for some really stupid things. Hopefully the reports about DSII nerfing backstabs will make PvP more about trading blows than "2 dudes continuously circling each other waiting for the other to take a swing".
    Personally, the best thing they could make for DSII multiplayer is include the ability to lock specific regions from netplay.


    Also yeah, attacking a defenseless, blind, moribund chick takes some topnotch scumbaggery.
    Won't say the same about the Mayor of Peaceful Land with Kind Inhabitants. :P

    I also kinda dig how you can see parts where other players are getting thier asses kicked.
    And the fact you can leave false notes.
    I don't know many but I know one is leaving a note that says "Treasure Below" in front of a bottomless pit, I just wish the notes weren't made with pregenerated words.
    I kinda wanna leave riddles and shit, not make up a sentence with words.

    I dunno. Those pricks looked like they were ready for some serious throwdown. Anyone who has bonerwheels around is not up to anything good.
    Incidentally, I'm surprised there was never a "Priscilla-chan Fan Club" Covenant.

    Oh yeah, didn't mention it but I'm quite impressed with how DSII is looking. You can tell the budget is giving them more room for extravagances.

    So is there a verdict on the Spider's sister?
    Are you a scumbag for killing her too?
     
  21. Balder

    Balder Well-Known Member

    You're already a scumbag for killing Quelaag. It's all downhill from there. #ScumbagSouls #ChosenScumbag


    Also, I should point out it's Priscilla's fault her soul makes such a good weapon. :3

    I agree up until the end.

    I still say it's your mere presence in the painted world that makes all the inhabitants so malicious. we didnt see how they were before we walked in. we dont know.

    Nah, her soul. That scythe was my lifesaver during NG+. (But yeah, dat dagger Critical boost)
    Maybe the respite of her tail being the easiest to get? Just one free 2-handed heavy swing. *glances at Kalameet*

    Anyway, given the times, I guess this is appropriate:

    Dear From Software,
    For Christmas I want a better character creator and being able to equip more clothing.
    Dragon's Dogma left me spoiled rotten in those regards.

    R.L. Stine and Smurf aren't too bad once you realize that it's supposed to be a co-op boss

    or if you just play smart and wreck R.L. while keeping away from Smurf

    Bert & Ernie are tough but they're fair. And it's a fun fight. Now...the Four Dicks? Catch them on a bad day and it's Magic Nuke!Magic Nuke!Magic Nuke!Magic Nuke!Magic Nuke! riding your Chosen Undead ass 24/7. And sometimes, probably symptom of being trapped in the Abyss for so long, they forget what ONE AT A TIME means. Assholes...
    But really, as much as I love the game it, IMHO, kinda takes a plunge after getting the Lordnachotray.


    Anyway, apparently Dark Souls is coming to the PS4 but it got renamed deep down and is being done by Capcom. :3
    [​IMG]

    A little OT but what do you ladies and gents think of this one? Personally, I'd rather see the effort expended in Dragon's Dogma 2 and while it looks good, the prospect of AssCreed timeskips is already sending my finicky bastard alarms glaring.
    Here's the TGS '13 trailer.

    The Four Vaganias aren't that bad if you just bumrush them with a big hitting thing

    if you're running with a measly poker or slicydice them you got some trouble though

    Atlus? WAT? o_0

    Anywho, let's meet some of the characters in Dark Souls II while we wait until March.
    Certainly seem like a jolly bunch but DS did raise the bar pretty high in terms of characters so we'll see if these guys can live up to the colorful cast of the prequel.
    I really got invested in the lore and the fates of some characters were quite gutwrenching to me. I remember getting to the finale of Siegmeyer's quest line and when I saw them so far away, I started running not to speed things up but out of genuine concern to know what had happened...
