With the launch of Dark Souls III, I thought it'd be a good idea to have a general DS thread for memes and such.
EDIT: Not clever enough to search beforehand, but I checked and there are already DS threads... Fuck it.

I think I heard a rumour that Ed plays it, not sure how true that is though.

I'd argue about some stuff but I'm sure some people want to be spoiler free, including me

 

Didn't fully complete the game yet ;D

I kinda want to play DS, but is it as hard as they say? Is it even a good RPG?

For what I've heard / seen DS3 is easy compared to DS1 and 2. Still tough but amazing combat and a pretty good story afaik

Not really. The game is notorious for being hard and unforgiving but that's often exaggerated. 
The difficulty and way in which it is difficult is the most important aspect of the gameplay, though.

I've picked up playing Dark Souls 1 just over a week ago and I've thoroughly enjoyed it, I guess I'll go ahead and review it.

 

I really like how skill based it is.

Even at 25 hours into the game (which means level 47 for me) you can get your ass raped by the NPCs in the starting area if you get greedy or just play like a retard. This isn't meant to say "this game is so hard even the starting area is hard at high levels". This means "you have got to keep your head in the game 24/7". Another thing I really like about Dark Souls is that there are no loading screens and no level transitions. The world is made entirely out of one level and is can be surprisingly well designed.

From a gameplay standpoint, my only gripe is that it is very wiki-prone.

The game doesn't really explain most of the shit that's happening, I was glad Ed taught me everything about which Stat does what, combat mechanics, humanity, invading, etc. Unless you like being kept in the dark, you either need someone you can ask a billion questions, or make the wiki your bible.

 

On top of this, through experience or online research, you get to know some pretty nifty things that make the game a lot easier, but not by any means easy.

What I'm trying to say is that as skill-based as this game is, a lot of it is knowledge based. I'd consider knowing areas, NPC and weapon movesets examples of skill. Instead I'm talking about easy, borderline exploit ways to either shortcut or cheap out on some aspects of the game. Stuff like this doesn't benefit games in the internet age.

 

The second problem that arises is that a lot of drops are as random as you would expect from an RPG, even on NPCs that don't respawn.
This means that on your playthrough, you either get the drop or you don't. Some people like this Roguelike-esque style of game, but I'm personally not a fan.

 

 

Final thoughts:
- Very enjoyable game, skill based, one of its kind in a lot of ways

- Looks decent enough for a 2011 game, but the PC port is rather sloppy

- Not telling the player anything about how the game works is NOT a cool way of making your game challenging

- Would recommend to anyone who likes a challenge and owns a controller

Yeah i agree Dark Souls 3 is a bit easier compared to the first one, I only really struggled with one boss. Also a bit disappointed I finished it with all bosses in less than 20 hours on my first play-through.

If you want to play DS3, just remember that the PvP Is really fucking broken right now. R1 spamming casuals who dont know they have other buttons aswell

 

PvE is really nice, in endgame the enemies get noticeably stronger as some can casually 1 hit you even on high level

For those playing DS3, theres a dude going around with a hacked weapon, if he hits you 3 times theres a chance you will get softbanned. You will be send to the title screen with the message that there has been invalid game data found. 

 

He actually livestreams it here

 

Obviously this is PC only, but you might wanna read this reddit thread if you're a PC player like me

^TL;DR disconnect or suicide if you get invaded by "Malcolm Reynolds" and have a backup of your save game just to be sure.

Tried playing DS1, gave up at the tutorial. Combat mechanics are way too complicated for me. The fact that it's quite a shitty port doesn't help.
