This game is too hard for me

#1nw63Posted 3/21/2014 8:57:09 PM
I was having a lot of fun up until around the Iron keep part. Now this game just feels tedious to me, more like a chore than a good time. But for the bit when I was enjoying it, it was great. But I just don't have the time to devote so much effort into a video game

Has anyone else reached a similar impasse?

Yeah, the Iron Keep was the hardest place in the game for me as well.

You can't get stuck in this game (unless you can't even kill one enemy) so at least you have that.

Also you are going to hate some of the late game levels if you are stuck now.

Maybe he is just simply crestfallen...

I got that feeling years ago in Demon's Souls. I took your sig's advice and persevered and now I'm a hardcore Souls fan. Something happens at some point, a kind of... understanding. It just clicks. Then you're hooked.

I just don't have the time I used to put into video games. I'm more looking for something I can pop in for an hour late at night after work before bed. Dark Souls just unfortunately isn't good for this situation

Stop playing the game like dark sous, and play the game like demon's souls.

Go do all the optional stuff, then hit bastille/IK with +10 weapons at SL100 if you're having trouble.

The teleport everywhere system even encourages this.

Just because the game is super linear in 3.5 directions doesn't mean you HAVE to go in those directions until you hit a primal bonfire.

I'd recommend like forest, heide, wharf, then down the misty forest path, then up to IK, then down the hole, then finish IK and bastille.

You'll be hitting the hardest of the beginning areas with fully upgraded weapons and all the necessary skills to make the fights easier if you're having trouble.

I did my first playthrough blind without any help or walkthroughs and I had to bang my head on a few bosses like ruiner (solo, even!) before I got through. Could have saved myself a lot of trouble if I'd just went to an easier area.

If you're having issues, try switching up your weapon of choice and armor and whatnot. Understand their mechanics.

If you're using a 1-hand sword, you're going to have a LOT of problems in Iron Keep.
