Back to Terraria. I swear this game is more addictive than Dark Souls.

Yeah now I'm getting in the mood to play it . I love cave story it's a masterpiece great story! I believe if that game came out back in the snes days it would be the next mario of today to say the least. Just my opinion :) that's how high in regard I hold it.Eluvei said:That's why I never touched it.
I've been playing Cave Story, which I bought on this Steam sale. I'd only ever played the old free version years ago, and had been meaning to replay it. I love it!

Oburi said:I did that, and I'm just about finishing up DS3 now. I found that coming off the DLC areas in DS2, which rev up the difficulty in that game, and then going into DS3 actually sort of hindered me from finding the first 2/3rds of the game challenging. It felt way too easy. Luckily it does start getting far more challenging towards the end.
Griffith said:Well, I quickly jumped ship on DS2 for 3 once my birthday came around and it with it, and so far haven't gone back (gorgeous btw, and feels a lot more like DS1 both in gameplay and art/lore). I've only reached the Undead Settlement but so far I've found it satisfactory in terms of difficulty (but then I haven't played the DS2 dlc yet). Though, I'm finding my trusty Claymore (+1 and enhanced with fire from my starting gift =) seems a bit slow for the action this time around, and the timing is much less forgiving in terms of hitting them before they hit you and cancel out your attack altogether (maybe I need to go with a speedier straight sword this time around). As cursedone said I've had more trouble with the tougher regular enemies than bosses so far. It does feel like there's more room for error with the relatively unaggressive groups, but the more specialized enemies the Knights are a bigger pain in the ass than ever. Oh yeah, and souls yielded and leveling is way more stingy than even DS1, let alone the level-fest that was 2, but while still separating endurance and equip load (and armor doesn't seem too impactful thus far, but I started as a Knight so maybe my starting gear is already good enough). Anyway, I'm erroring on the side of caution with my points and when in doubt pumping them into life.
Feeblecursedone said:Straight swords are generally better than greatswords because they're faster, lighter, have versatile moveset and what not, but you can still finish the game with any weapon, that was always dark souls policy.
As for armour, you can't upgrade it like you could in ds1 or ds2, so what you wear can be quite important if you're not good at dodging. And knight armour is pretty good for the entire game. I prefer lighter armour.
Oburi said:I started as the Knight as well and I found that the starting armor is really good, I wore it for a third of the way through basically. As for leveling, I wouldn't dump too much into life. You're definitely going to need to get your equipment load really high as you progress. It kills me to look at how many points I put into that (almost at 40!), meanwhile, my vitality is around 15.
I also didn't find leveling to be a problem though, I mean, by the end of the game I was at 90, and I didn't really grind all that much. I would say less than 10 levels in my first playthrough were obtained specifically from farming souls to get a stat up.
btw, do go back and play the DLC for DS2. It's really fun. Best part of that game for sure. I suppose it's meant to be played with another player (at least some parts are) but I'm proud to say that I beat all three dlc areas on my own, since I was on my xbox and didn't want to pay for live (except for the Frigid Wasteland, I did summon NPCs for that part because fuck that place and that boss)

I've been a fan of the series for a while and also read the books, it's a wonder it took me this long to get this game. It's amazing so far though and it really scratches that dark fantasy itch left behind by Berserk and GoT.

Eluvei said:I've been playing King of Dragon Pass on mobile before I fall asleep. It's really good, but overwhelming. When I start it up I'm almost passing out though, so maybe I'm having a distorted experience.
Walter said:I've heard such amazing things about that game, but it looks like something that would be so absorbing and time consuming, that I can't imagine a mobile platform is the best for it.
