Trying to get my friend to buy dark souls, but he thinks it's "bad".

Because it is bad.

I get the appeal of it, I'm stomped my way through the game (god the combat is easy if you've spent hundreds of hours in Monster Hunter), but its not a good game. Theres a LOT of design decisions that exist solely to make the game more difficult/confusing/complex.


... ok.

The "Souls" games appeal is their difficulty to many. However anyone with patience will find that difficulty is really over blown.

Enemy locations are static. The majority of enemies can be beaten with simply blocking and rolling mechanics.

And yes the above is true for many games. But those games don't rely solely on their difficulty as their main attraction.

The game is like an NES game that was brought to the modern age. It's all about pattern memorization, but the game moves so slowly that you'd have to be an idiot to not see and punish the extremely telegraphed attacks. Once you know the ins and outs of each area; the trap locations, boss attack patterns, and so on, you realize the game's difficulty is lacking. At least NES games moved at a quicker pace, but even NES games were easier than the stuff in most old arcades.

I liked it because like demon souls it was influenced by berserk


God damn berserk is so good. lol Well the manga anyway, never been a fan of any of the anime adaptations. To bad the author may or may not be on permanent hiatus though which means it may never have a proper conclusion.

It's a very polarizing game. I've never heard someone who thought the game was just okay. Everyone either loves it or hates it.

30fps = no buy, sorry. I agree with you friend. If it's bad you don't buy.

The first thing I did when I got the game was mod it. You think 30 fps is bad, I think it dipped in to the single digits on PS3. I know we shouldn't have to mod a game to fix lazy devs, but they get a pass on this since it is their first PC port and they said DS2 is designed for PC.

Bethesda on the other hand...

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

How dare he have a different opinion than you. I'd call the local preacher immediately and prepare for an exorcism or a witch burning.
