How's the PC port of Dark Souls 1? What about DS 2?
>>
>>315332750
DS1 is alright if you use some guy's patch to unlock better resolutions and uncapped fps.
The second game is alright by itself.

Dark Souls 2 is a bad game. Not just a bad Souls game, but flat out a bad fucking game.

been playing SOTFS for the first time lately after beating DaS2 a while ago

thoroughly enjoying myself, pretty great game if you don't go in with huge expections
>>
>>315333908
I love every other game of the series.

DaS2 feels like going from DMC1 to DMC2. Cheap, clumsy, full of baffling design decisions, missing the point of what made the previous game great.

Demons > BB > Dark 1 > Scholar > Dark 2
my personal rating

who else /all five plats/ here?
>>
>>315334000
I honestly think that's the reason there's so much hate toward DSII other than blatant shitposting. People got overly hype for the game.

I personally saw the announcement trailer and just said "why" since the story wrapped itself up pretty nicely by the end of Dark Souls and I just didn't know what to expect after seeing dragons alive.

I went from playing DaS1 until I felt there was nothing else for me to achieve (like I did with DeS before it), to playing DaS2.

I wanted to enjoy it. I really did, but it all felt wrong, cheap and clumsy. A bad imitation.

I'm not choosing to feel like the game is shit, I gain nothing from that. It's just what it is.

This. I played Demon Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne. After playing Bloodborne, I tried DS2 and more than the mediocre visuals(I'm not really hating on that, it's a port and I'm sure they did an awesome job), it felt clunky. Everything about it felt rigid. I went back to DS1 to check to see if I was just spoiled by BB, and no, DS1 didn't feel that way. DS2 is just... too damn different for me.

Which is sad because I really wanted to waifu the hell out of the Emerald Herald.

I starter playing it after not playing DkS2 for almost 2 years and yeah, i got really fucking bored by the time i reached the Ruin Sentinels.

I think i only went through with it the first time due to release hype. The game takes too long to get interesting, it gets fun when you beat Lost Sinner and go to Huntsman Copse, gets shitty again when you reach the Windmill, then goes back to being good when you reach the Iron King's Castle, then back to shit when you go to Tseldora, and so forth...

It only becomes consistently good from the Castle onwards, and it ends with a shitty final boss anyways.

Giant Lord was pretty fucking memorable, the one you fight by entering a memory.

You can't imagine my satisfaction looking over the High Wall of Lothric in the stress test and being able to see every landmark in the right half of this image, and what looked like the spires of Anor Londo far away in mist

I've never even seen anyone talk about this, so I feel like I'm the only one who spent time looking over the wall in the starting area for 10 minutes

I really feel like DaS3 has high potential of being the best game in the series. Apart from only invading ganks I would be very pushed to find a flaw with the stress test

So /v/, who is your favorite boss in the series? Mine is definitely Father Gascoigne, everything about him is perfect. He's fucking cool, sets the mood for the whole game, and has an insane twist that makes you shit your pants. He also teaches you to play the game, if you play it like Dark Souls he rips your asshole out. Because he has the same tools as you, you feel like a dope for losing, and then you get him down and do well, and he goes fucking werewolf and decimates you where you stand.

tbf it doesn't have as much build variety or weapons you can fool around with. You can spend dozens of hours just screwing around with new toys in DaS. On the flipside BB is tight as fuck, and NG is pretty much the best out of all the Souls games. All the bosses, areas and enemies are top tier. Replay value is a lot more limited and the chalice dungeons suck for the most aside from the odd boss encounter. It seems like the new expansion will fix the build variety complaint so there's that

one thing I don't get in DeS

why was Astraea's soul the worst? Wasn't she a saint? She doesn't seem particularly bad when you kill her, she's just lounging around in a pool of aborted babies. Why does the merchant woman in the level hate her? Am I missing something here? Is it a moment where you're supposed to feel bad, to feel that your character has become soul-thirsty demon themselves?

I always thought that her soul was the most impure because she absorbed the impurity of the swamp.

I guess the logic was that since she once had a pure holy soul, accepting the demon's soul made her soul much more corrupt than anything else

I mean, it's fucking magic, what explanation do you want?

>>315338729
Astraea and Garl came to the Valley of Defilement on the behest of the church. Either Astraea found out what the church truly worshiped or decided to act like a beacon of hope for the things that lived there and became a demon, which is why the goblins seem to be worshiping her.

Use whatever weapon you want. They're all perfectly viable. If you want to experiment with some of the weapons you get later in the game, a +7 or so weapon will get you through a pretty big chunk of the game, so you can use it while you're looking for other weapons to use.

There's not really any need to upgrade your armor. Put together a set that you like the looks of and that lets you roll how you like and upgrade it when you don't have anymore weapons you want to upgrade.

Do you want to look like wolf armor guts? Try the silver knight armor with black leather leggings. Its the only armor with similar design and a cape. Or maybe darkwraith armor. If you have the dlc then get the armor of artorias. If you need a greatsword then try either:

The Greatlord Greatsword
Greatsword Of Artorias
Man Serpent Greatsword
The Black Knight Greatsword

Its best if you go with the black knight one since it gets the size and power right however the shape is a bit off.

Furthermore, use a crossbow or a great chaos fireball as your left handed weapon to emulate the handcannon. Looks even better with knight gauntlets.

BB changed things, Dark Souls II ruined things. BB didn't bloat/split stats and fuck with established lore like DaS II did, and shit level design isn't subjective. Bosses could be, but you cannot tell me that any of DaS II's bosses barring Fume Knight and Alonne are anywhere near the highlights of the other games.

I'm not saying Chalice Dungeons aren't utter shit, I'm saying because they are basically a separate game mode, it's retarded to imply that it's somehow the worst thing to ever happen to the series. You can experience everything worthwhile BB has to offer without touching chalices.

Protip: during Dark Souls development, "Elite Knight" was actually the Knights set. Knights Set as it is now was Elite.

They literally just thought because the lesser clothed one "looked" more fancy, that it should be swapped around.

A similar thing happened in Dark Souls 2 that never was fixed.

"Greatshield of Glory" and "Tower Shield" in Dark Souls 2 got mixed up. Greatshield of Glory is the one you get off the giant knights at Dragon Aerie, but it's description talks about Syan.

However, the "Tower Shield" which is used by the Syan Knights makes opposite mention of large warriors.

Not to mention, the drakekeepers of dragon aerie literally look like Tower Knight from Demon's Souls.

Further, "Greatshield of Glory" is more fitting a name for the shield with the sun emblazened upon it.

They essentially either fucked up or some dindu at From swapped them intentionally for some unknown reason, and didn't fix their lore and descriptions.
