Dark Souls! Dark Souls! Dark Souls!
« on: May 12, 2015, 10:30:53 pm »
One of the most hardest video game series' that was made on earth and I just absolutely love it.
At the first glance I hated it . I even uninstalled it. But then after watching a couple of gameplay videos and by reading some reviews, little by little this game got me. Right now, no matter how many times I die I just want to keep  getting back up and keep on moving.

So I want to know any lovers or haters of this franchise? What do you love the most about this game? Favourite Boss Fight? Any history about the characters?
Or anything at all. All are welcome!

Hmm what's this? I came back here after a long time and the first thread I see is a Dark Souls one? I love this place  ;D

And yes Alucard I'm a big fan of the Souls franchise. And believe me I get you , the first time I played this game ( I played Dark Souls 2 first ) I cleared about 4 areas and then rage quit. But after a while I played it again and got the hang of it. Now I absolutely love it. I finished both Dark Souls 1 and 2.

Which one are you talking about?

Both! Getting the hang of it is the main thing. I started playing dark souls 1 a couple of  days back. I'm a noob to this franchise but it makes me feel like I'm a total noob in gaming! Finishing this would give me so much pleasure.

WOW! Finshed both? That's something! Share your memories. Favourite incidents, boss fight n' all

I've 208 hours in DS2. ( 2 characters , one Level 218 and the other Level 350 ) In DS1 I have 138 hours ( A Level 181 character ).

Souls.... Souls.... Souls are the key...

You're absolutely right. I spent many hours farming souls in both games.

Share your memories. Favourite incidents, boss fight n' all

In DS1 , my favorite boss was Artorias. He's also the one that was most difficult for me. I also like Ornstein and Smough boss fight. ( Anor Londo was a pretty awesome area )
| SPOILER ALERT | Favorite incident was Hawkeye Gough shooting a gigantic arrow at that annoying black dragon Kalameet. That cutscene was epic! Discovering the area "Ash Lake" was also pretty awesome. However I absolutely hate "The Depths" and "Bighttown" areas. Just seeing those two areas makes me wanna puke.

In DS2 (I haven't played DLC on this one) I have multiple favorite boss fights.
1. Looking Glass Knight
2. Ruin Sentinels ( epic sountrack for this boss fight )
3. The Old Dragonslayer ( another epic soundtrack for this boss fight )
Visiting Drangleic castle was a pretty epic moment.

Can't wait to get my hands on the DS2 DLC.

@Alucard what class are you playing as? I always play as a sorcerer / knight hybrid version. And which areas are you doing these days? If you need any tips on particular areas or bosses , just ask.

Ha Ha! I just defeated the Taurus Demon!  ;D But however I watched a couple of gameplay videos beforehand. Died like 5 Times. Today only once. The Second time I got it right. Then tricked the dragon. Also watched a video about that so didn't get caught up in the fire. I've watched almost all the boss fights in dark souls 1. Not because they'll help me in the future, but just because I simply love the gameplay! The moves those bosses keep bringing on! OMG!

BTW I'm playing that class right on the top of the list. Warrior I think. He's very slow but his defence is good I think. I still haven't got the hang of parrying and dodging, so I always try to block the shots. But that doesn't work with the bosses.
I just beat a rhino type animal and got his helm and went down a ladder right into freakin' nowhere and died! BTW I found another white sealed door. I reckon it should be the gargoyle fight so didn't go there yet. Trying to save my souls and move little by little.  :)

And do you know that white wolf and that artorias dude is connected? There's quite a story to it!
Dunno about dark souls 2 very much. Must finish this first

Yeah. I know the feeling. Experienced something like that for FIFA 15.

Ok so I'm now in the undead parish. traversed through that white light but there was no boss. Just another path. But this time the enemies are much harder! There are big dudes armed with a small round shield and a rapier! And these guys know how to fight.

You must be talking about the shiny battle boar in Undead Parish.(His helm is random drop , I got it much later in a different area). Don't remember a ladder leading to death though :P.

Don't take on Belfry Gargoyles until you're ready.There's two of them in the boss fight. Make sure to have a good shield with a 100% Physical damage reduction. They also use a fire breathing attack.

Those Gargoyles are also in Dark Souls 2. In DS2 they're tougher because there's freaking FIVE of them!

And do you know that white wolf and that artorias dude is connected? There's quite a story to it!
Oh yes. The wolf Sif is Artorias's pet. Their story is sad man.

Oh and those big dudes with rapiers , they're Balder Knights. They're tough but they're nothing compared to Silver Knights in Anor Londo.
Don't do the "New Londo Ruins" area and "The Catacombs" area too early. Those are tough areas.

What about those black knights then? They're pretty tough too right? I'm thinking of starting the game with a different type of character. My guy is pretty slow. rolling and dodging takes time. Have to consider it.
I found two of the black dudes. One in Undead burg and one in top of a tower at undead parish. I'm carrying a longsword and hollow sheild wearing chainmail. Dude is quite slow. That's what I'm worried about.


BTW even haters are welcome!  :D Just tell us why don't you like the game. Is it because of the wierd type of graphics that you don't see often? Or is it how damn difficult the game is? Or is it something else entirely? Share your thoughts.

FYI I even stopped playing GTA V to pay full attention to Dark Souls 1!

Those black knights are corrupted Silver Knights. So they're also very tough.

Your character is slow? Check your Equip Load. (Press Esc then select "view Status" , You'll see your Equip load in the middle.) If it's more than 50% of your maximum equip load , then you'll move and roll slowly.This applies to every character. Try to keep it below 50%.Try wearing lighter armor ( or wear nothing :P) After all armor doesn't matter much in DS , it's the weapons and shields that matter.

You should buy the heater shield from the Undead merchant in Undead burg. It's light , has good stability , and it has 100% phy. damage reduction. (Y)

My character had the heater shield from the beginning. I now carry a hollow shield. Will go back to the heater shield then. BTW I wore nothing when I tricked the dragon.  :D

You can't sell anything it Dark Souls Right? Can only spend souls and buy stuff right? So if I had to lighten up my load, then I'd have to drop some items. Correct?

You can sell items to a certain NPC you'll meet later in the game. However items in inventory don't affect your equip load. Only the following stuff affect your equip load (in DS1) ,
  1. equipped armor ( head , torso , hands , legs )
  2. equipped four weapons ( two left handed weapons , two right handed weapons)
 
So you don't have to drop anything in the inventory.

I saved the game at the bonfire where that blacksmith is.  Gonna play at least 4 Hours of dark souls today  :)

Everybody who's reading this that haven't even heard of the franchise or have given up playing it, just stop whatever you're playing now and start playing this!  :D
Just pure awsomeness!

Hey lashan now I've opened up several paths. Defeated gargoyles and that moonlight butterfly and opened up crest of artorias. But the hydra remains and I can go down to the depths of undead burg. What should I do?
I'm thinking of the hydra. Then after that?
